lt-s.-ee, Was a huge success. The attendance was very large, there being
between fifty and sixty couples present, beside many stray spectators; the
great loft space of the big building
being well filled. Everything passed
off to the delight of all present. Six
large Rochester lamps suspended from
tbe rafters supplied splended light,
and a red-hot Quern heater kept the
temperature in   good  condition.   A
palatable and. refreshing luncheon was
served about JnSdnight. The elite of
Columbia and Grand Forks, who enjoy dancing 'Were there in force. Good
music was. furnished by Rice and
Webber, musicians. The couple who
unceremoniously, suddenly and emphatically seated themselves on tbe
hard plank floor during tbe whirl of
the dance created considerable demonstrative merriment.

THAT PLEBISCITE.
Perhaps no greater surprise was
given to those who attended last Wednesday evening's meeting than Mr.
Hoi Ian i's reply to the letter of the
Rev. J. P, Betts, asking bin, if elected,
what he would do in reference to
gambling and public morals generally, when be said that if elected be
would take) a plebiscite o the people
on the matter and be governed accordingly.
Now, we are fully aware that such
questions from our teachers of public
ethics, while quite in order, aud very
pertinent in this community, are also
very troublesome. Wc are also aware
that Mr. Holland is a beginner iu tbe
art of public debate, and ol a highly
nervous organism, and also that men
often make statements under such circumstances which th y would modiiy
or leave unsaid i.. calmer moments.
Every one knows that when a man is
alter votes he must recognize that the
ballot of tbe imtiioral man counts one
as well as that ot the moralist. But
why a man of Mr. Holland's intelligence should have nia.ie the reply he
did is indeed a puzzle to us. ..He cer
tainly did not, if we mistake not, satisfy Mr. Betts. That gentleman was
kind in the form of his question, ai.d
had Mr. Holland read it carefully he
would have seen at once that it
amounted to this, viz: "Are you willing to enforce the law on our statute
book?" If Mr. Holland bad said that
he was to the best of his ability, Mr.
Betts would have been satisfied and
nobody else offended. What Mr. Holland did say amounts to this, that he
will take a plebiscite of the people to
find out whether they are willing to
respect the laws ol theeouuiry. Surely
ishable offence, aud all the plebiscites
Mr. Holland may take will not alter
this fact.
We are willing to attribute the answer of our mayor-elect to lack o
consideration and to the moment's excitement. We will not hold bim to
his promise, but will tall it "a bad
promise well broken." But we shall
expect an independent and manly enforcement of the laws of our laud. No
elector worthy of citizenship can dis.
sent from an officer doing that lor
which he is appointed.
bead disease, to flounder out of the
mess as best he can. The rebuke and
utter defeat administered to him and
his gang of boodlers by the ratepayers
at the polls last Thursday was more
than bis brazen effrontery could withstand, and he seeks an atmosphere
that is uot permeated with the foul
odor of his journalistic dishonor. He
did the same thing when he
sold bis honor and opinions, neither
of which he possessed, to tbe
Mackintosh supporters, at the last
provincial election.
The Sun was in error yesterday in
stating that the first meeting ot the
new council ot Columbia will be held
on Tuesday evening. Th»s law requites
the meeting to take place on the first
Monday after election.

The ancient Liberal Executive has
sent out another circular, a copy of
wiiich has reached the Sun office. It
deals with matters pertaining to the
Liberal convention called to convene
on the 30th. It evidences the fact that
the executive is uot inclined to pay
any attention to the protests from the
interior against uufair representation,
and it still insists upon the prerogative
.,!' passing upon the credentials of the
party representatives sent from the
various interior points. In fact, it proposes to see that the convention is
composed of material to its own lik-
iujj. This smacks teo much of clique
methods, aud a determination on the
part of coaa leaders to remain in ab
solute control ol the party and party
patronage. This purpose and these
plans are not satisfactory to interior
Liberals, and these dictatorial self-
constituted leaders may be surprised
when convinced that the interior Liberals of the southern portion of the i
province are iu earnest in their demands, to the extent, even, of rebel- \ Chemists

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
miles east from Vancouver.
The natnral 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 water, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded.by mountains, formings charming combination
of picturesqueness and grandeur.
The Columbia and Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouses and yards
in the centre of Colnmbia; and the
Vaucouver, Victoria and Eastern Railway company has located its depot
freight sheds and yards along the east
line ot 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 of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre.
The climate, taken all. the year
around, is the best in Canada—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 land, part of which is now bring
cultivated.    .
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all tbe 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 be procured at
fair prices, and brick, lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained
1
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 pump,
ing from a beautilut spring of exceptional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby's smelter atid converter
—the most modern aud perfect plaat
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 largestcity in the interior.
