A
Deals in Columbia  Lots
Have Been Lively
Lately.
During tbe winter and spring the
sale of Columbia real estate was very |
slow, but now that the Great Northern station, as well as the C. P. R.
station, has been settled on tbe upper
bench, a large number' lots, both for
building and speculation, have been
purchased in Columbia. The following ia a partial list of lots sold within
tbe last mouth, not including lots
purchased for right of way purposes:
Block 1, lots 4, 5,7, 9, 13, 14,15-
Block 7, lot 112.
Block 9, lots 14, 15, 16.
Block 11, lots 6, 7.
Block 15, lots 8, 9, 10.
Block 16, lots 1, 2.
Block 13, lota 19, 20.
Block 20, lots 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10,10.
In addition to the above, several
deals are now pending, and Tbe Sun
hopes in a ew days to be able to report an active business in real estate
in tbe vicinity of the new station, and
between the two stations.
The Grand Forks Townsite company are now beginning to realize tbe
value of their holdings iu Columbia. A
few months ago tbey were selling lots
iu Columbia at extremely low figures,
but since the Great Northern commenced building into the city they have
been constantly raising their prices.and
a few days ago a purchaser who
wanted to»buy a lot near the station
was tjld by the manager, T. W. Holland, that they were withdrawing
from the market all their lots near
the station, as he expected that within two years they would be worth $500
and upwards apiece. They will probably turn their attention to stuffing off
their inferior lots first
to  the   council asked for the correct
city grade at that point.
In response to a petition from ratepayers, Mayor Holland announced
that, in his capacity as manager of the
Townsite company, he would respect
the agreement with the city for tbe
extension of Bridge street to the V., V.
& E. depot, si«n the deeds for the
property involved and place them in
esciu in tbe Royal Bank of Canad .
Harry Goodeve was allowed $305 for
services as nurse at the pest house.

Dr. Kingston submitted a report  on
the sanitary condition ol the city.   He
said it was   thoroughly   satisfactory,
with the exception of the outhouses in
rear of the Bridge street and   Riverside avenue hotels.   He urged thecitv I
council to obtain permission from tbe j
provincial   board   of  health to drain
the sewage   into   the river.   He was
asked to prepare a report in   writing, :
which will be considered later.

Tracklaying. on tbe V., V. & E. is

steel will be laid as far as Columbia.
High water during the past week has
materially interfered with the progress
of laying steel, as all the rolling stock
available has been utilized in hauling
gravel for tbe grade across Manly's
ranch, which was hurriedly constructed ,and was considered unsufein case of
a still higher rise. The company now
has four engines at this end of the
line, and they will all be used for hauling material to thn tracklayers as soon
as sufficient ballast has been put on
the grade to make it perlectly safe.

Situation,    Environments
Resources*
nd    General
The City of Columbia is 'situated
near the junction of the North Forks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the city for
beauty Is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling water, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forfBitig a charming combination of pioturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia & Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victors A Eastern Railway company, has looated its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the oity connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifle railway com-
Cany has large interests in the oity,
aving selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre.
The climate, taken all the year
around,'Is the best In Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent of fertile agricultural laud, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small'frnit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material Is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, anil brick lime and stone
of good quality oan always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the eity by pumping from a beautiful spring of "excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind iu America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational oentre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.
