LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE
To the Editor of the Evening Sun.
Would you kindly allow me a few
lines of space in your valuable paper
to brinjr to the attention of the public a few matters that occurred prior
to the arrival »f the honorable the
commissioner of lands and works.
I will begin by asking:
i'irstly-What benefit has Columbia
and the settlers and claim holders of
the Franklin camp received from the
provincial government during tbe
past year? Columbia has received a
small moiety" towards the brkige
across the Kettle river. A great deal
cheaper bridge could hflye been built
by the city, but the government called
for a certain class of work, ami it is
only fair that the government should
pay the difference and add to their
subscription.
Secondly—How much trade was done
with Columbia merchants last summ r
through the ■ department of works?
The only supplies bought here were
purchased in the early part of ihe neii-
soi^ and amounted to something like
$100. (It must be understood that it
was only provisions that were boaght
by tbe men to boara themselves).
Now, what happened when the ne..
superintendent was appointed?   Any
man who lived in Columbia seemed to
be barred out of any chance of a jyb. !
On  the  general  work  foremen ivere
discharged without cause, and   residents of Columbia could get no work.
Aliens   were   given  jobs,     Foieni.n!
without tbe  least qualifications   were
brought in from other points to work
on tbe Franklin camp road, and ihey I
made a botch ol it.    When   men   and'
foremen were hired  they were given '
to   understand   that   they   must buy
their  provisions  aud   supplies  from
firms in Grand Forks.   What   is   the
sequel?    Columbia should have  had
at least $4000 coming in in wages and
supplies last summer, but did  not get
a single dollar.   I do not want to be
tedious by going into details, but will
leave it to the business men if it would
not be well to hold a public meeting
to discuss matters be fore the Hon. Mr.
Wells arrives, in order to lay  stale
of affairs before him.

Of course the paretics I action need-
, ed is tbe interesting of public and pri-
I vate capital, and the securing ofgen-
| erous   subsides from all' the govern-
' I ments interested.
The road will connect the chief fit-
ties of Central and South America,
and when this would interfere with
the direction of the road, branches
will be built. This of course is already
a tact in North America.
The congress recommends that all
materials necessary for building the
road be free from duties, and exempt
from taxation, and that the line he
forever neutral to insure freedom of
traffic.
The importance of such a line will
be seen when it is stated that the delegates from America, 11 nv attending
the congress at Mexico, came there by
way of Europe.
WEDNESDAY, JAN.  22, 1902
The business office of The Evening
Sun is located at present in Columbia,
where all correspondence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
In all of its tirades against the late
city council of Grand Forks the Gazette never made a single specific
charge against any one member, but
its malicious insinuations and innuendoes were constantly aimed at aldermen Harvey and Donaldson. As these
gentlemen were the only two re-elected, that paper must feel extremely
proud of its influence for good government.
Tbe Gazette sqneals. It does not
relish exposures 01 its own crookedness. So long as it had a monopoly
of the newspaper business and by
blackmailin ' methods could intimidate the publu, it delighted in hurling its poisoued arrows at innocent
citizens, and to shield the guilty for
what there was in it, but when confronted with a lance tilted at its own
foul reputation, it weakens. It found
Rip Van Winkle not so much asleep,
after all.
There is some public criticism of
the action of tne late city council in
voting its members a few hundred
dollars at the final meeting of the
Grand Porks board. The Gazoot leads
the kickers. For four years it has enjoyed to the fullest possible extent a
cinch on city printing, but now it is
out in the cold. Some of its demands
against the city were outrageously extortionate. Its opportunity now being
^one, it feels disconsolate and sour
It is safe to say that neither the Gazoot nor any one of the other critics
wonld give the city anv service without demanding pay for it. The couu.
cilmen during the year gave fully two
months each of their time to city affairs, much to the detriment of their
private business. There were seven of
them, and if the $1,200 were equally
divided among them each would receive about $171. Alderman Harvey
who put in the most of his time looking after the city's interest as the
chairman of the board of public works
got $300; Mavor White got $200 and
ao on down. For the same service the
objecting Gazoot would probably have
asked for $12,000 instead of $1,200.
For two months the Pan-American
cangress has been in session in tbe
city of Mexico. Among many great
possibilities to eome out of it are a
Pan-American bank, and a Pan-American railway. The latter is to ran
north and south through North and
South America. Using parts of present systems, it necessitates  the con

Situation,   Environments   and    General
Resources.
The City of Columbia \ 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 Amerieu. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, fprffling a charming combination of'picturesquesness 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, Victoria A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the olty connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway company has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
rail way 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 «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 fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district, Lumber can be procured at
fair prioes, 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 beta 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 city by pumping from a beautiful spring of exceptional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 90,000 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, tbe 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 finully allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.
