HETfY IS AMBITIOUS.
Mrs. Hetty Green, the wealthiest
woman iu America and one of the
most picturesque characters in New
York's financial circles, in about to
extend her sphere of influence to California. The information was given

several multi-millionaires who were
being relied upon to furnish much oi
the capital with which the California
Midland Railroad Company intended
to float its big railway, mining and
steel enterprises, and it was gently
hinted that she stood ready to put
$4,000,000 into the investment. The
Cal'fornia Midland, as is probably
well known by this time, was incorporated by W. H. H. Hart, Daniel E.
Hayes, W. H Graham, R. J. Davis,

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1902
The business office of The Evening
Sun is located at present in Columbia,
whrre all cor.espondence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
It has been the opinion all aloiiij of
The Sun that ihe opposition brought
ai'ainst the American railway promoters in this vicinity would result injuriously, and it was not very wide of
the 1: ark. 'Ihe depression in business
here the past two weeks resulting
from this opposition has been very
disheartening, but the worst feature
of the situation is the fact that this
setback comes at a time when investors are forming their plans for the
coming season. We may cite two instances of many which go to show
how these dogs iu the manger have
succeeded in retarding investment
here in the building line. Manager
Wilson was here only a few days ago
with the intention.of selecting a site
anil beginning the erection of a substantial cold storage plant and meat
market building lor P. Bums & Co.
When he found there was a bitch in
the V.,V. & E. railway plans, fhe
scheme was dropped. W. R. Megaw
was intending to erect a large brick
block on the corner of First and
Bridge streets, but for a like reason,
has postponed for another season,
and so it goes. It has been a serious
mistake to suppose tbe American
road would come in here regardless ot
cost or business warrant. The most
incomprehensible thing in this matter
is the fact that some of our leading
business ir.en, carried away with this
nonsensical idea, have sought to impose on the V., V. & E. most unreasonable exact'ons. Now what do we
find ? We find that company looking
for a solution of the difficulties thrown
in its ''ay, which if successful, will
leave thin town out in the cold. The
last issue of the Midway Advance
contains the following iu which there
may be more truth than poetry:
The V.. V. & E. has ever since it
proposed to commence operations in
the Boundary country, been anxious
to fin I out what point w.'s likely to
became the smelting centre of the
district. It recognized that much of
tbe tonnage, for a time at least, would
be from tbe big mines at Phoenix,
among which were those of the  Do
minion Cojper company This company was coutempl ting the bui.ding
of a smelter, an I the railway company
was 111 mi hurry about yoing aliead
Witt; any of its spurs u .til it was defi 1-
itely decided where the smelter ol the
Dominion Copper company was to be
located. For some time th■» D.imiuion
Copper compmy nas been negotiating
with the British Ooluinb a Copper
cojipany for the disposal of either its
entire buildings or a large block of
stock to the Tatter company. Tins deal
hung lire lor a considerable length of
time, aud last week it was reported ou
what appears to be reliable authority
that the deal bad gone through. Almost simultaneously with this report
comes the information that the V., V.
& E. has abindoned its idea of building the Granby or Phoenix spurs from
Grand Forks, which would uaturally
lead one to arrive at the conclusion
.' that both reports are true and thai the
cjutractors will be put to work ou this
side of tne mountain instead of the
[other. The line is already located between   Midway  and Phoenix     The
* company can build from here without being interfered with by injunctions placed upon it by an opposing
company, or from any other cause.
This side of the mountain is the proper place for the Phoenix spur to be
built, and it now looks as it it will be
buiit from here to Phoenix and that
additional smelting facilities would be
provided at some point e'.ther here, or
close by, to treat tbe ores ol most of
the Phoenix properti s instead of them
going to tbe other side of the mountain.
public that he must call off his surveyors or force would be used to put tbem
off. A word to the wise proved suf
ficient. The survyors came in and
have not returned.

The Granby co I'patiy, it appears,
ie desirous of being relieved of its con
tract with Grand Forks to furnish the
city with electric lights. It further
appears some the machinery used by
the Smelter company in the execution
of the contract, cost the city, something like $13,000. It is also understood the Smelter company desires to
purchase this machinery at what it
maintains is the cost price, which is
$3,000 less than what, the city paid.
Here the   roarers may roar, whether
their premises be right or wrong. On
one side the> shout the citv has been
jobb d; on the other haml it is claimed
there are those who are seeking con-
tualiy to mak« trouble for the city's
officials. Nevertheless, people wil'
ask: "How does the difference in the
figures happen ?"

If the Smelter company here is at
the mercy of the C. P. R. on the fuel

Situation, r^Environrnents    and    General
Resources.
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 America. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest frees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pieturesquesiiess and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Cnnii-
dian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse aud yards
in the center  of  Columbia,   and the
Vancouve r, Victora A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifie railway com-
{>any has large interests in the city,
laving seleoted the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre.
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best iu Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kittle Itiver valley
there'is an extent <*>f fertile agricultural land, 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 frnitand
vegetable furms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful lu thB
distriot. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good quality can always be oh-
tained 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 exoep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect pin tit
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 oity in the interior.
