WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2, 1902
The dispatches tell that Mr. Joseph
Martin, in a mellow mood at a Masonic banquet Saturday night last,
unbosomed himself to the extent of
saying that as soon as redistribution
is passed he would topple the government over and appeal to the people. Mr. Martin must remember that
he knocked out a govenment ouce before in this province previous to the
passage of the estimates, which played
sad bayoc with public works affairs.
Let him take warning now that should
he repeat the coup d'etat before the
estimates for the current year are
passed, it will greatly lessen his chances of success with the people. Think
this matter over, Joe.
There was another case in the Columbia Justice court late yesterday
afternoon, the trial extending into the
night. Roland Hicks was accused of
uttering foul and profane epithets

Solicitor W. H. P Clement, the defendant energetically pleading his
own case, but unsuccessfully, as he
was adjudged guilty and fined 820 and
costs, or 30 days in the provincial jail,
and as he had no money he departed
for the Hotel de Dinsmore.
John Carmicbael, or''Candy Jack,"
was up in Judge Johnson's court this
morning on a charge of illegally fishing in Smelter lake. Defendant asked
lor a postponement in order to secure
witnesses, which request was granted
until 3 this afternoon. While the
Smelter company may have the law
on its side, through a few privileged
clubmen, in view of the munilicent
grants secured by 'he company from
the city, its course in this matter has
the color of base ingratitude aud extreme selfishness.

A MONSTROUS OUTRAGE
To the Editor of The Evening Sun.
The lake caused by the darning of
Kettle river, commonly known as
Smelter lake, contains more trout than
any other body of water inland in
British Columbia. And yet a few selfish grallefs are applying to the government in order to obtain a monopoly.
They are going at it in this manner:
under pretence of stocking the lake.
I am prepared to take au affidavit that
any person knowing anything about
fishing can catch over 50 trout a day
every day lor six months. Yes, there
are enough trout iu the said lake to
supply everybody with fish for 50
years. The citizens of Grand Forks
paid the smelter company $30,000 to
defr'y damages caused hy backing up
of water. Now the smelter company
turn around and try to prevent them
from fishing. It is time to wake up
and see what will soon happen if
steps are not talteu to prevent this
move.
The Mountain and Stream club,
lately formed, have, I understand,
leased the lake from the smelter company, and have applied to the Ottawa
government for special privileges,
promising to stock the lake. Now, we
all know there is no ured of stocking
it ; in fact, it has plenty of stock to
spare.
The putting in of Ihe dam backed
water for five or six miles, and the fish
from the North Fork congregate iu the
lake; in fact, the lake is draining the
North Fork of all its fish. The smeller company should be forced to put
in a fish ladder, as the fish cannot get
up or down. The company U not satisfied iu being allowed to dam the
river, but claim the lake, and runs all
its slag from the smelter into the river
to kill the fish on this side of the dam.
We all know the said parties, a short
time ago, tried to control either bank
of    the   North  Fork   for twenty or

COLUMBIA. B. C.
Situation,    Environ me tits    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 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 waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturesquesuess 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 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 Paeifle railway com-
Kany 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 Kafctle River valley
there is an extent «f fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated. |
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cher-
.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, anil 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
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere pros-
peots a short time since are now large
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 oonverter
—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 oen-
tral 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 city in the interior.

Boer Delegates Will Confer With Kruger and
Dr. Leyds.
The Hague, April r.—Mf. Kruger,
Dr. Leyds and the Boer delegates in
Europe are expeeted to hold an important meeting at Utrecht tomorrow
to consider the situation in view of
Acting PresidentSchalkburger's peace
move. Well informed people here say
Gen. Schalkburger was evidently influenced by the receipt ol news of the
result of the Dutch note to Great
Britain on the subject of peace in
Soutb Africa and other dispatches
sent him from here. It is known tbat
his communications with President
Steyn and Gen. De Wet, which have
heretofore been easily carried on, were
interrupted by the recent British military movements, aud as it was necessary to communicate with Mr. Steyn
and Gen. De Wet before and peace
proposition could be formulated, Gen.
Sohalkburger bad to apply to Lord
Kitchener for safe conduct. Considerable surprise is expressed here, at
Schalkburger's delay iu getting in
touch with De Wet, and it is thought
that something unusual must be behind it. But even if the Orange Free
State and Transvaal officials agree to
peace terms, it would be necessary for
both republics to call a general meeting ol the commanders and submit
the proposition to the burghers before
they could be submitted to Lord
Kitchener.
