Dp, Wise Ms Wisely,
Dr. William A,   Wise   one of the
most prominent of Portland dentists,
senior 1;,ember of the firm Wise Bros.,
has withdrawn his membership in the
Oregon   ttate   Dental   society.   Dr.
Wise's action   was  prompted  by his!
desire to be free from the hidebound 1
rules by which under the name of eth- I
ics tho society holds down its younger I .
members of the prolession in Oregon.
Dr. Wise has practiced dentL-try in
Oregon for 15 years,  a::d his rise in

amounted to only $1397.   Against this
there was insurance  for $$ 1292.   The

where all correspondence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
The proceedings had so far leading
up to the combining of the municipalities of Columbia and G'and Porks
under one muuicipal government, to
be known as the city of Miner, have
been, both on the part of the citizens
and officials of both corporations, legitimate, sincere and in accord with
the will of a large majority of the ratepayers. At this stage of said proc, ed-

hidited in either community to rescind
any step or a, tion fo far taken. Both

The City of Columbia 's 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 America. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffiing a charming combination of picturesqueaiiess and grandeur
The Columbia & Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victoria A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of tti3 corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway com-
Eany has large interests in the city,
living selected the site on account of
tie suparior natural advantages as a
railway cantre.
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best iu Canada—-part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Tan irhout the Kettle Klver valley
there is an extent -if fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pBars, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia divided into small fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good quality can 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 city by pumping from a beautiful spring of exceptional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby 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 beautible environments, the bright prospects 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 sister, will lie
the best and largest city in the interior.
