The proposal of The Evening Sun
to eels bra te the passage of the amalgamation bill, which virtually completes the union of the cities of Columbia aud Grand Forks, by a ratification and jollification meeting
participated iu by the citizens of both

The birthday party at the Methodist chnrch last night was a most
gratifying success to its promoters—
the ladies of the church aid society.
Tbe church was crowded to thedoois.
The receipts amounted to over 864,
and the program was very^interesting
and pleasing, two numbers being
especially well rendered. We refer to
a guitar solp by Miss Jaskulek, of Net.
son, Wash., which was heartily encored, aid a recitation by Miss Effie
Williams, of Columbia, was also favorably commented on as deserving
of much praise. Miss Jaskulek is a

the organization had accumulated
about $400 during the nine months of
its existence.

Water-Right Decision
Information comes Irom Vancouver
that the Supreme court.sitting in banc,
has banded  down a  decision  in the
case of Covert vs. Pettijohn appealed
from a judgment in the county court
by Judge Bpinks, reversing the same.
W. H. Covert, under claimed   water
rights, built a dam on Fourth of July
creek and ran an irrigation ditch over
non-crown-granted   land; across the
international boundary line, then over
a strip of American territory to a point
where it le-crossed the line on its way
to Covert's residence.    Later on D.
B. Pettijohn took up the government
land on this side of the line through
which the ditch ran and diverted the
waters thereof to his^own use. Covert
brought suit to estop Pettijohn   from
Sun reporter that the delay in opening  doing this, |udg«  Spmks, after with-
the new sclu ol huildii g is due to  two ! holding decision  nearly a year, rendered judgment against Covert's title
to the water right, it being invalidated

Situation,    Environments    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 309
mites 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 waier, fringed with,
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forfflihg a charming combina'
tion of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia & Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Paoiflo Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of  Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Yietora A Eastern Railway company, has located Its depot,
freight sheds and yards alongthe east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two* transcontinental lines.... —
- The Canadian Paoifle railway company has large interests iu the oity,
Laving selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre.
The climate, taken all the year
arouud/is the best in Oanadn—part of
the slimmer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle ltiver valley
there Is an extent .if fertile agricultural land, part of vvhioh is flow being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small frnit ami
vegetable farms, Will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful lu the
district. Lumber can be prooured at
fair prices, and briok lime and stone
of good (iiiality can always be obtained 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
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since 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 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 brightprospeotsfor future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when Anally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city In the interior.

Nelson, B. C, April 24—A meeting
of the leading business and professional meu, held yesterday, expressed
strong indignation that the provincial

for the business transacted and that
its ventilation is so bad that judges
haue had to adjonrn court iq conse-

resolution was passed lo telegraph
these protests to tbe premier and to
the members for the districts.
