Situation,
rivironmerits    and    General
Resources,
The City of Colombia ie 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 natural situation 01 the city for
beauty is not excelled io America. A
verdure-claa and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling water, fringed with
forest trees aad surrounded .by mountains, forming a 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 Columbia; and tbe
Vancouver, Victoria and Easteru Railway company has located its de pot
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 eumaer 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 be procured at
fair prices, and brick, lime and stone
of good quality can always beobtained
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 beautilnl spring of exceptional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby's smelter aud converter
—-the most modei n 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 aud 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 iu the interior.

there is a deficit of $20,000 under tbe
management of the city administration during the past year. The Miner
however, prints a statement byJ.S.
Clute, candidate for Mayor, that apparently disposes of tbe charge, but
on close examination, his statement
looks a little fishy. It is often said
figures don't lie, bnt it is a well
known fact that they are made to conceal crime in many ctses.
