MUNICIPAL, EfTMlCS.
Saturday the Sun spoke in these
columns of the moral obligations of
those who take—and whom we place
in—positions of trust. We shall now
say a word to the_ body politic itself,
for we are convinced this whole matter hiiteB its roots in the people.
Within the neat few days every
man in the community has a moral
daty to perform iu reference to.. the
nomination ana election of our execu-
tive board.
Shall we lie supinely or. our backs
•ud hug the delusive phantom of hope
that somehow things will adjust them-
wives? Or shall we say, "It is no
use—evil has ih« majority?" Shall
the caucus be held in the council
chamber of righteousness or in the den
01 iniquity? Shall crime fill,our public offices, or shall righteousness demand a hearing? Shall we cry peace,
peace, wbeu there is no peace? These
are the are questions which every man
•f character must answer, and answer:
at once. Tni ngs cannot be right here
until righteousness moves, and justice
seconds the nominations in this city.
Furthermore, every one who, has a
vote is under moral obligation to use
it. A young woman who has a vote
said tbe other day: "I wouldn't take
$100 and go down to » polling booth
and vote." Now, if the voting places
are unfit for a woman to enter without
being shocked or made sensitive, then
it is the business of our officers to
cleanse them of. all objectionable
things, whether of men or things But
that young woman is under moral
obligation to vote. Suppose her vote
should be the casting one between a
man of character and a man ot disreputable name aud life, then we say
her  neglect of her franchise and her
{prospects of every man and woman in
the- community, keruiowti included.
.Thj»,. vote .of. yours  is a God-given
treasure, and if you do  not  care'for
,-'•'■.' - ■   ". MS
yourself yon have no right to damage
the1 interests of others.' --Vote V Great
destinies  hang  on   your ballot.   To
neglect it is fcotplay : Judas." there  is
no neutral ground for a man.
Perhaps th* poult which shbuld be
.most strongly emphasized at this lime
should be willing to run for office.
The hour is calling to some of you to
be financially crucified, if necessary
for the redemption of this city." The
founder of our moral code'- was' under
no more obligation to become a sacrifice for men than-you are. And in the
face -of moral rottenness that is what
.loving one's neighbor' as one's self
means. You say, "I should be beaten
if 1 did run." Defeat in at good cause
is truer triumph than victory in au
ignoble cause. And, busides, you have
had the opportunity of presenting
righteous principles in your-contest
before the people..' If education be of
value ; if all permanent change be of
slow change, yours is the reat victory,
for it will last. No. the fight must
never abate because of temporary defeat. It shouid be contested to the
bitter end.   ■
Our civic elections are made
financial and material, while the arguments used to ser are election are all
morals and j righteousness. It should
uot be, and in reality is not, a battle
ot dollars or expediency or party, but
ot right against wrong in every instance^ And this is not all. We. as
the electorate of this community, must
be willing, publicly and privately, to
sustain the men who do govern righteously, not only on election day but 365
days in the year, 24 hours out of every
day, 60 minutes out of every hour, and
60 seconds out of every minute. Our
officers would be all right when
backed by the moral lite aud public
support of the body politic. Every
young man should be ambitious to become an expert in civic politics.
Acres of diamonds lie alt about you in
this field ot public life. You may
make history ; yon may serve your
city ; you may immortalize your name'.
If you are fit for it, the mantle of pub-1
lie honor shall fall upon you. If you'
don't get distinction it is because you
are unfit for it. You are wanted on I
the field. We are listening for your
voice; we are waiting for your footsteps. Woe to kirn that builds a tewn ]
with blood or establishes a city by in- j
iquity.

COLUMBIA, B. C.
Situation,   Environments   and    General
Resources.
The City of Columbia is situated
near the junction of the North Fork
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
mtles east from Vancouver.
The natnral situation ot the city for
beauty is not excelled in America. A
verdure-cla4 and floweribespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling water, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded;by mountains, forming a charming combination
of picturesquenefs and grandeur.
The Columbia and Western railway,
which was constructed by the Cana-
dan Pacific Railway company, has its
• station, freight warehouses and yards
in the centre of Columbia; and the
Vaucouver, Victoria and Eastern Railway company has located its depot
freight sheds,and yards along the east
line 01 the corporation, thus giving the
city connection with two great transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific Railway company has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on account et
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre.
The climate, taken all the year
around, is the best in Canada—part of
the sum user 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 land, part of which is now being
cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The vvlley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can b'e procured at
fair prices, and brick, lime aud stone
of good quality can always be obtained
when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and wi,l
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 city by pumping from a beautitul spring of exceptional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby's smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men. is contiguous to the
city.
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautiful environments, the bright prospect for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister city, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.

would rather see the devil himsel
coming, hoofs horns and all, $3.19!
calling an ordinary preacher an eminent divine, 90 cents; sending a tough
