THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 1902
Some citizens of Columbia, who
had hoped to receive assistance from
the city council in adopting and carrying out a plan of general street tree-
planting, feel somewhat disappointed
at the, what thy term, indifferent attitude of the council toward this matter
at its last meeting. There are reasons
for commending the efforts and desires
of tbe citizens who are seeking to improve the streets and beautify the city
theyky not only enhancing the value
of rea.ty but rendering the locality attractive as a residential place. There
are also reasons why the council just
at this time should hesitate about increasing the city's obligations. In the
planting ot trees the time must be considered, and delay of a week or two
mav mean, wait till next year, hence
the anxiety ol the tree-planting promoters. While the action of the council may be wholly justifiable, it seems
a pity that this initiative cannot be
aided to the extent of a $125 appropriation, ev«-n though it increase taxation a trifle. What we want is growth
in population, which would tend to
lighten indiv.dual taxation.

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 Pacifle railway company has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
thn superior n itural advantages as a
railway centre.
Thn 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.
Thraurhout t'n Kittle Hive." valley
there is an extent .if fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.J
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 nre 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 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 beautlble environments, the bright prospects for future
growtn 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.
