GRAND FORKS AND COLUMBIA, B. C.   WEDNESDAY, FEB. 26, 1902.
NO. 96
rnwr n
ROW IN THE LEGISLATURE.
Victoria, Feb. 15.—There was a
disgraceful scene iu the legislature
yesterday afternoon. Richard Mc-
Bride, leader of the opposition, Joseph
Martin, leader of the party formerly
the opposition, but which voted with
tie government last session, and
Smith Curtis, formerly Martin's first
lieutenant, engaged in what n»- ly
averied being a fist fight. It was over
the seat in the house usually alloted
to the leader of the opposition. Mc-
Bride took it when he entered the
chamber, and when Martin arrived
there was a wordy war. McBride held
the seat until the chaplain rose to read
the prayers. The new leader of the
opposition rose also, and Martin
slipped into the chair. Smith .Curtis
threw him back, and Martin's followers pprang forward. It came within au
ace of being a fist fight, resulting in a
war of words, the discussion lasting all
the afternoon. Finally, by motion,
the members were ordered to take
their old seats.
RESIST STUM PAGE CHARGE.
Greenwood, Feb. 25.—Two interesting test cases will come before Judge
Leamy today. C. [. Martin, purporting to represent J Murray, provincial
timber inspect ir, has made demands
upon Chinamen selling firewood for
the payment of stump age fees and
threatening seizure of their cerdwood
and teams in event of their failing to
make payment. The Chinamen have
brought action to test the right of the
government to collect stumpage on
wood cut on mineral claims. It is
significant that both mining companies and private individuals are protesting against this levying on wood
and timber cut on mineral claims, but
they left it to the Chinamen to resist
payment and bring action to test the
validity of the impost.
As evidence of the' unusual mildness
of the season, visitors from Boundary
Palls and Midway state that buttercups are now blooming in those
places.
TYRANT WEYLER AGAIN.
London, Feb. 25.—It is announced
in a special dispatch f i.ui Madrid
that General Weyler, the war minister, is urging the queen regent to give
him a fiee hand in deaiing with "the
rebels in Catalona," and that Premier
Sagasta threatens to resign if General
Weyler's request is granted. The
queen regent is said to favor General
Weyler's plan,
pumped enters the slope, and leaks
through the crevices of the rocks near
the stoping in the tunnel further reduces this. It is believed that about
230 feet perpendicular height ot water is now in the mines, and that probably the fire is out. The management
may adopt a plan of opening the stop-
iugs of No. 3 slope at anytime aud
investigate.

Webb, the American palace car mag-
date, has purchased from Lord Minto
the four horses used to draw the

WEDNESDAY.FEBRUARY ?.6, 1902
Tbe undignified and childish squabble in the legislative balls at Victoria
Monday for the seat of honor as lead-
1 r, was disgraceful in the extreme,
and may be taken as a lair exhibition
of the instability and unworthiness ol
our present system of government. It
seems to have degenerated into a mob
of political combatants wholly oblivious of the rights of the people whom
thev were stnt there to serve:
Miner.'' shies, of the best quality
and make, see aud be convinced at
Hodion's. *
,    Last week Mr. Martin Burrell, one
' of the most gifted and entertaining
speakers in Southern British Uoluni-
j bia, delivered a lecture in Grand
Forks on the subject "Is Life Worth
Living ?" It was listened to by a
large and appreciative audience.   In
1 the lecture Mr. Buriell brought out
very forcibly the pleasure and satis- '
I faction to be realized from beautiful
streets   and  house   surroundings by
tree and flower   planting;   thus not i
only making the city   and its homes
attractive, but greatly  enhancing the
, values of all real property. In answer to solicitations ou the part of
some of Columbia's leading citizens,
I Mr. Burrell has consented to favor
Columbians   with   an   address along
j these lines on Friday evening next.
One ot the large vacant storerooms in
! the Folger block on Government av-
, enne will be prepan d for the occasion,
' and the Sun feels that it can assure
, tbe lecturer a creditable audieuce.
Our citizens both in Grand Forks and
Columbia should take hold with Mr.
Burrell and give   tbe  movement  all
1 possible aid. "A thing of beauty is a
joy forever."
"The funeral of the late John H.
Blome, the well know and highly respected photographer, took place at

General
i
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 Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling water, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffiing a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A 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
Vancouve r, Victora * 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 com-
Eany has large interests in the city,
living selected the site on aocount of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year
around.'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 River valley
there is an extent ft 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 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 atone
of good quality oan always be obtained when required.
The mining Interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do muoh to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the oity, 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
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 110,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfeot plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautlble environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a eity of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and whon Anally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest oity In the interior.
