THURSDAY .FEBRUARY 27, 1902
"Tbe problem of transportation and
the problem ot markets," says the
Globe, "will be greatly simplified
when British Columbia has as many
millions of people as it now has hundreds of thousands, an that is a very
modest expectation. All British Columbia's troubles are temporary. The
building of railways and the filling up
of the west will solve them in a few
years." .This sounds very well on
paper But stop a moment and figure
out how the length of time it will take
to get those millions, with an increase
of only half a million in ten years.
There is need of something being done.
The dogs iu the mangers must be
routed. The Great Canadian Pinch
will not allow other railway promoters to come in aud develop the country, wor do it itself. So in the polhV-
cal realm. The old grafters will neither legislate nor allow others to do so.
We need a change.
If the Father Pat memorial fund
keeps on growing, Rossland ought to
be able to provide itself with a pretty
tine town clock.
The' solution to the Crow's Nest
coal sapply and cheap fuel for smelters problem is a competitive railway
line, which the great Canadian
Pinch and its organs are moving
heaven and earth to keep out of the
country.
Who are to blame for the railway
set back and tbe dull times of the past
six weeks? The dogs in the manger.
It is to be hoped the Great Northern
will not charge all this opposition up
against Grand Porks for future reckoning; if it does, woe to those who
fall in its bands.
TENDERED MR. AND  MRS. EDWARD
RUCKLE.
Th« incoming 2 o'clock train yesterday brought Mr. Edward Ruckle and
his bride, to whom he was married in
Ontario recently.
On arrival her* Mr. and Mrs.
kucttle were driven to their home in
the Ruckle addition. The happy
couple had not the slightest inkling
that tbey were to be banqueted on
their arrival, consequently, were
greatly surprised to find the modest
little home in the p issession of a large
number of friends and acquaintances
ot the groom. But, sure enough, they
were in for a cordial reception and
banquet. Everything had been well
arranged by a committee, consisting
of Robert Wasson, Joseph Burwell, P.
T. McCallum and Frank Ruckle. Mr.
Spraggett officiated as master of ceremonies, or chairman.
Toasts were arranged as fo.lows:
"Bride and Groom—King and Country," Responded to by P. T. McCallum and I. A. Dinsmore. To which
the bride and groom also responded,
the former doing so in a most happy
and appropriate manner.
"Our Bachelors," Joseph Burwell
and C. Allen.
"Farmers," D. Mclnnis and J.
Hutchison.
"City,"  Fred I lark and Dan Rice.
"Ladies," Donald McCallum and
Robert Wasson.
A toast was then drank to the
health of the bride and groom.
Thirty Ladies and gentlemen sat
down at the banquet table.
Fred Clark acted as reception committeeman, and arranged the seating
of the guests, and a most pleasant
hour for all present was passed.

The Oity 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 trees and surrounded by mountains, forffiing a charming combination of pictiiresquesness 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 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 Canndian 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, token 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 Kittle Itiver valley
there is an extent -if fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, oher-
ries 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 stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, ailii will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now iarge
paying mines.
Water ia supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—tho most modern 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 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 be
the best and largest oity in the interior.
