TEUSDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1902
All nations have their baffoons and
fire-eaters in their national legislative
assemblies. A short time ago Mr.
Wheeler, member of the United States
congress from Kentucky, gained a
little cheap notoriety by his spectacular tirades against royalty. But Mr.
Gourley, Conservative member for
Colchester, Nova Scotia, goes the
Kentucky statesman a point better.
In tbe house of commons at Ottawa
last week he made a fighting speech
against the United, Great Britain and
a few other minor nations too weak to
defend themselves. Great Britain, he
claimed, took the side of the United
States and not of Canada in all casts
of disputes between the two countries,
including the embargo on catt e, immigration, Alaska boundary questiou,
etc. He would rather go lo war at
once with the United States than submit to any kind of humil ation. He
was positive he could lick the Yankees
and annex the republic to Canada iu
six months. In his opinion the Canadian parliament, too, knew far
more about Britain's foreign policy
than the British parliament. The
members there, he I oldly asserted,
were examined for imbecility before
getting their seats. The gentleman
from tbe Blue Nose riding has missed
his vocation. He should now be at tbe
head of the British forces in South
Africa. If he fiyhls as bravely as be
talks, he ought to be able to wind up
the Uoer war in ab mt fift en seconds.
papernakers refused to take back unused paper or to make allowance for
waste when paper is injured or imperfect, as bad theretofore been the
custom. The prices fixed are pronounced unfair and detrimental to
consumers and to the public good.
The judge having thus decided it remained for the government to do its
part, as authorized iu the Customs
Act, in such cases. It had power to
abolish the dutp 011 paper altogether.
What it did was to reduce the duty
from 25 to 15 per cent on news printing paper in sheets and rolls, including all papir valued at not more than
2 1-2 cents per lb. How long the
term of punishment will last there is
no means of knowing, but it may be
expected to last as long as the combination. This is the first case that
has come under the custom's law, and
it shows what can be done to remedy
complaints of monopoly.
Mr. Justice Taschereau, who was
appointed to enquire into the
complaint of the Canadian Press Assoc.ation that a combination existed
among the Canadian manufacturers of
papers, which caused excessive prices
to be charged, has reported generally
iu favor of the complainants. He finds
that a combination exists and that it
raised prices to the consumers; the
va ious members of the combination
agreeing that no lower prices than
those fixed should be accepted by any
of  tbem.    He   also   finds   that   the

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Resources.
The Oity of Columbia Is situated
near the junction of the North Porks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, anrl is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the eity for
beauty Is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-besimniled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, fbrffiing a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A 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
Vancouve r, Tictora 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 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
arouml.'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 Kiver valley
there is an extent -if fertile agricultural land, pnrt 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 frnitana
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Huilding material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber oan 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 sinoe are now iarge
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tioual purity, capable of supplying a
oity of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plaut
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
he an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
arid wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest oity in the interior.
