The citizens of Grand Forks appear
to be well pleased with the apparent
attitude ol Columbia regarding the
name to be placed in the bill authorizing amalgamation of the two towns.
There is one thing certain about it,
however, and that is, if Columbia becomes a part of Grand Porks, she will
participate in the benefit arising from
whatever good may result from the retention of name on the part of that

The Grand .-orks Lacrosse Club
will bold its first annual ball in Bi-

the affair a success, and it is lully
hoped an expected by the management that there will be a large attendance. The club last year provided
good entertainment for lovers of legitimate athletics, and promise, with the
material and perfect grounds at their
disposal, to make even a bmter showing during the coming year. Expellees are ralber large in keeping up an
atulelic club in this district, and the
funds secured from the ball tonight,
are lo be applied to the treasury of the
club. Hence it is only to be expected
a large crowd will be present.

Situation,   Environments   and    General
Re^oi irces.
L   ~
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, forrfling a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia & Western railway,
which was constructed by the Cana-
dian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victora & Eastern Railway company, has looated 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 com-
pany has large interests in the city,
having 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 «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 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 iarge
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 beautiblo 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.
