CITY SUNBEAMS
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1902
The business office of Thft Evening
Sun is located at present i 1 Columbia,
win re all cor espondence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
The inhabitants of the Americas
have been so persistently told that
thev are the most pr inressive and enlightened beings on this planet, that
they have lone regarded the matter as
an established fact. A tew, however,
have had the temerity to question the
assertion, and their researches would
seem to indicate that in many branches
of industry we are left far in the rear
by some of the countries of the old
world which we have been taught to
regard as decayed and effete. But in
the matter of government ownership
of public utilities we are half a century behind some of tbem. Italy, a
country which has long been pointed
out as being in a model state of decay-
edness, owns nearly all of her railroads, and leases them to private companies. Germany owns at least nine-
tenihs of hers; Austria-Hungary
nearly one-half, and Russia two thirds
of her immense system. France is
stated to come in to possession of hers
about the middle of this century, but
has been considering the propriety of
getting tbem sooner. The various
Australasian communities control
nearly all of their railroads, and the
same is true of India, The United
States and the other countries of
North and South America, which represent now half the mileage ot the
world, are almost the only governments ol prominence that do Hot have
some direct interest in their railroads,
except Great Britain. Canada's position in this connection is extremely
deplorable. Here the railroads own
the government.
The Hon. James Sutherland has
been elected to the position of Minister of Marine and Fisheries of the
Dominion government, without opposition.
Lord Sholto Douglas, son of the
Maiquis of Queensbury, has purchased a saloon in Spokane and intends
running it.
The city of Los Angeles, '"al,, has
just paid private owners 82,000,000
for a water works system, of which
the city is now the owner, and thus
d >es the principle of public ownership
of public utilities progress.
The Marquis of Dufferin, atone
time Governor General of Canada, has
been very ill and is slowly sinking.
The Evening Sun is the only daily
printed in the Boundary country, the
richest gold-copper region in British
Columbia.
Mr. C. Doberer of Grand Porks, and
Miss Edith Cameron of Vancouver,
were married last evening at 8 o'clock,
in Knox Preshyterian church, Rev.
J. R. Robertson officiating. Mr. Doberer is the well-known genial and
courteous clerk in cbarue of th<? dry
goods department at W. R. Megaws,
and the bride, though a resident of
Vancouver, formerly resided in this
■ city, and is he.d in high estee'in by ad
: having the pleasure of her aequain-
1 'ance. She arrived here <>n yesterday
afternoon's train. At the wedding Mr.
M. C. Davidson supported the groom
and Miss Gretta Kennedy, the hride.
The Evening Sun joins'with the many
friends of the happy couple in wishing them a full measuse of happiness
and prosperity in the matrimonial
state
At its Monday night meeting the
Grand Fork's council passed for payment tbe following bills: N. D. Mcintosh, $1.00, Spokane Northern telegraph, 84.50; R. Petrie, $1.70;

R. Megaw, 35c. It also granted P. T.
McCallum a rebate of $25 on his auctioneer's license. At the adjourned
meeting yesterday, tbe council passed
the annual loan bylaw, and extended
the release of the Smelter company

The contract for excavating the
cesspool at the new school house has

board of health, held a consultation
with E. L. Charles and J. S Snapp of
t'ie V., V. & E. yesterdav evening,
later a committee was api ointed to assist the railway company in procuring right of way over disputed points.
School Trustee Meeting.
The trustees of the Columbia school
held a meeting last evening, and spent
three hours in the careful  consideration of local school matters.   The session was held in the city clerk's office.
Several communications   were received, considered and filed.   Relative
to   trausfer of school  property   from
I the government to th« city, the super*
I intendi'tit of education writes that tbe
I matter is in the hands ol tbe attorney-
j general.

vertise for a supply of wood.
No action was taken in the matter
of janitorship.
There were two applications for the
position vacated by Mr. MacLeod,that
of Miss Agnes Miller and Mr. R. A.

the board that a larue majority of the
parents were desirous of having a male
teacb-r, and being personally known
to the boaid to be an efficient and successful teacher, and being highly recommended by many prominent school
officers in eastern provinces, and by
officials from the educational department at Victoria, the board decided to
I engage the -erv.ces of R. A .IcMordie
for the balance of the sclio I yeir.
The hoard fixtd the fir t Wednesday

<Wl
Situation,    Environments    and    General
Re^^ot irces.
The City of Columbia Is situated
near the junction of the North Porks
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 pieturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia & Western railway,
whloh 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 corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paoifie railway company has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on acoount of
the suoarior natural a lvautagas as a
railway centra,
The ollmate, 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 tli9 Kettle Kiver valley
there is an extent -)f 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 frnit 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 re uiired.
The mining Interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Largs
mineral lodss have bees discovered
through tha m imitains adjacent to
the city, an I whit ware mere prospects a short tim i litua are now hirga
paying mi'iai.
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 plant
of the kind In America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
eity.
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 city in the interior. .
