GRAND FORKS AND COLUMBIA, B.C.    MONDAY, MARCH 17, 1902.
NO. 112
Will Meet Today to Discuss
the Canadian Northern
Land Grants.
Victoria, March 17.—Mr. Martin
has called a meeting of the so called
provincial Liberal executive for this
Monday afternoon, to discuss his position iu regard to the government's
Canadian Northern bill, by which the
enormous land grant is to be given.
The convention at which Mr. Martin
was selected as leader declared against
land grants.
KILLING TIME.
Victoria, March 15.—The opposition forced Mr. Martin into a peculiar
p isilion last night, when as an amendment to the address in reply Mr.
Helmcken submitted a motion regretting the absence ot a protest against
the disallowance ot the labor regulation act and the B. C. immigration act
and declaring for  their re-enactment.
Mr. Murtiu said he entirely agreed
with tbe amendment, but to vote lor
it meant defeat of the government,
and this he would not do. He made
a strong speech, reasserting his old j
contention that the province was within its rights in passing these Oriental
exclusion measures, and cited similar
legislation in Australia not disallowed
He said that the Ottawa government
had never shown that the bills were
disallowed for imperial reasons, or because ot unconstitutionality, ana ho
differed with Mr. Mills entirely on
this point. However, he said the defeat of the government would cause
chaos, and he would oppose the resolution.
Mr. McBride made another ineffectual protest against the failure to issue
the North Victoria writ.
The redistribution bill has not yet
been submitted, and it is said to be a
cause of anxiety to the government.
B. 0. OOLD FLILDS.
Ottawa, March 15 -The bill retarding the United Gold Fields of British
Columbia came up at the railway
commitee yesterday, and on the suggestion of Mr. Blair it was held over
to be re-cast. The bill is for a railway from Frank, Alberta, to Grassy
mountain, in connection with the
company's works. Mr. Blair said it
would have to be framed as a railway
bill.
INDIGNANT PROTEST.
London, March 15.—The official announcement yesterday of the abandonment of the proposed visit of King
Edward and Queen Alexandra to Ireland, whereby the ministers assume
the responsibility for an imperial boycott, is quite unprecedented in form,
and caused much discussion, the general tone of which is distinctly adverse to the action of the cabinet,
which is interpreted as displaying
petty spite and epleen.
THE METRIC SYSTEM.
Washington, March 17.—The
bill
GOING HOME.
Ottawa, March 17.— Sir Hibhert Tapper will leave   for   Vancouver   today,
and will not liktly return this session.
THE CANCELLED VISIT.
Dublin, March 15.—In an address
delivered at a publ c meeting here,
Earl (Jadogan, lord lieutenant ol Ireland, made a rather enigmatic reference to King Edward's abandoned
wisit to Ireland
After declaring that nobody was
more disappointed in this matter than
the king himself, with whom the idea
of his visit had originated, and after
expressing his own conviction that his
majesty would have been most enthusiastically welcomed here, Earl Cado-
gan said he shared the full responsibility with the other misisters for advising the king that the present was
not an appropriate occasion for a visit,
and this advise was given after tbe
fullest consideration. The speaker
said he refrained from characterizing
the difficulties which had tendered
the abandonment ol the visit opportune, but these, as tbey well knew,
were deplored by a vast majority of
the Irish people.   Earl Cadogan  said
to adopt the weights and measures of! he was   quite sure these difficulties
the metric system as tbe standard for
the United States, as introduced by
Representative Shafroth of Colorado,
were only of a tetnporay character,

A political revolution is needed in
this province to rid it of Dunsmuir and
Martin, and several other politica
frauds like them.
Mr. Joseph Martin, finding himself
on both sides of nearly all public and
political questions of the day in Victoria, devotes much ot his valuable
time explaining why he so often antagonizes himself,
Juggler Joe should go down to Lin-
nertim. Oregon, and get himself
canne.l at the 0 d horse canning factory as meat. It would not be a
greater Iraud than he is now end bvor
lug to perpetrate on the people ol this
province.
Mr. Martin was recently sehcted as
leader of the Island Lilierals. The
convention at which he was chosen us
such leader declared against land
grants to railways, but Joe looks up
serenely and supports tbe outrageous
government proposal to the Canadian
Northern. H» has now called a convention of his followers in order that
he explain why he is compelled to repudiate them and himself.

COLUMBIA. B. C.
Situation,    Environments    and    General
Re^oi irces.
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 800
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 bv a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, fortfiing a charming combination of pietnresquesiiess 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
Vancouver, Victora A Eastern 'Bail-
way company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the Jcorporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifle railway com-
Eany has large interests in the city,
aving 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 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 «,( |ertile 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 frnitand
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, 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 since are now large
paying mines.
Water is 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
—the 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 aud largest city in the interior.
