Victoria, B. C„ April 29.—The opposition  tied  the government   on   a
motion to adjourn until to tomorrow
this atternoon by a vote ot 17 to 17—
Martin and Gilmour absent.
Prentice,though still ill, delivered
the budget. He says the overdraft by
June 30 will be $1,768,000. The principal features of • his speech was the
intimation that the government would
float a new $3,000,000 loan, repeating
the unused ' authority of past loans
and selling the total up to a figure
named to niee the necessary public
works. He intimated that this might
be floated in New York instead of
London.
Tatlow criticized the budget for the
opposition.
The railway committee submitted a
recommendation that companies receiving subsidies from the province
must buy steel rails and rivets in British Columbia or Canada, provided
they can get them at the market price
in Britain or the United States.
Dunsmuir sails May 10th for the
coronation. The governor was not invited as reported.
The government will submit the
fisheries bill, conceding the principle
of competition for the foreshores. It
will also submit the railway bill providing for aid to the Mackenzie-Mann
Coast-Kooteuay and the M idway and
Vernon franchises.

A Meyets Falls, Wash., correspondent of the Spokesman-Review says
that information has reached there
from Republic regarding a proposed
change in the mail service. It such
change goes into effect, the cm respondent says tbat it will require 52
hours for a letter to reach Republic
from Spokane. At present it requires
26 hours.
W. E- Travis, manager of tbe stage
line between Meyer's Palls and Republic lias the co tract for carrying
the mails between Meyers Falls and
Republic at $1100 per year. This contract expires fane 30th. The service
has been sublet to a man who has '
been carrying the mail for $26jio per
year. This man, it is said, has notV'p-
fied Mr. Travis that he will demand
I3200 per year to carry the mail in
future, and Travis wants to get out of
a proposition in which be is already
losing money ajid will Ios- more if he
continues his contract to June 30th.
It is said Travis bas brought influence to bear on the postal, authorities
to induce them to give the contract to
Kettle Valley line at once and let him
out. The railway is still some distance from Republic. Mails could go
to Ferguson by regular trains; irom
Ferguson to the end st the line by
a work train, and from there to Republic by wagon. 1 his would require
about 52 hours' time from Spokane,
but it is presumed the department at
Washington does not understand cou-
li.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 1902
Chas. Ferguson bas been telling
some great yarns to a reporter of the
Spokesman-Review about the wonderful accomplishments of the Hot
Air fiasco, and especially concerning
his important functions in the construction department, all of which is
ridiculous in tbe light of facts, aud
will excite tbe risibilities of tbe knowing ones to the extent of a horselaugh.
COLUMBIA COUNCIL
The regular weekly meeting of the
Columbia city council was held last
night. Mayor McCallum presiding.
Present: Mayor McCallum, Aldermen Cusson,Disney, Lagimodiere and
Mcintosh.
Minutes of last meeting read and
adopted.
A letter was read from Grand Forks
council asking that $3000 of school
debentures be turned over to them.
The council decided to retain them
until an offer to buy or hypothecate at
not less than 85 cent was received.
The lollowing by-laws were read:
Rates and' Taxes By-Law, 1902, A
By-Law to Repeal Electric Railway
By-Law, 1900; Tbe Shade Tree By-
Law, 1902.

The Ladies' Aid society of the
Methodist church will meet at the

Mayor Neil McCallum,after a three
months' sojourn in Victoria in the interest of the city, returned home on
the delayed passenger tram yesterday
evening.

W. S. Deacon, of the law firm of
McNeil'ifc Deacon, ol Rossland, came
in today and has been in consultation
with city and V., V. & E. officials
this afternoon.
Last night a little past six o'clock
good cheer was brought to the hearts of
a patiently waiting people when the
wires ticked off the result of the decision of Judge'Irvine in the V., V.
& E. injunction case in the Supreme
court at Victoria, as it established
the validity ot tbe charter rights iu
question and insures to the people of
this Boundary country competitive
railway advantages. A bulletin announcing tbe decision was posted at
Tbe Evening Sun office, and the good
news spread like wild tire. It immediately transformed the gloomy countenances of our citizens to radiances oi
delight.
This morning about 10:45 there came
further information from Mr. McNeil
that the injunction had been formally
dissolved, and his instructions to Engineer J. H. Kennedy were to "proceed with the work."
Ibis decision is understood to remove all doubt as to tbe legality of
the V., V. & E. charier, though it is
claimed by some that the application
for Hie extension of time uow pending at Ottawa must be favorably acted
upon belore tbat legality is absolutely
established.
However, it is bel'eved that the application lor extension will be granted
and that the spur to Columbia, as well
as the line to Republic will be completed by July 1.

Situation,    Environments   and    General
Resources.
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 oity 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 aud surrounded by mountains, forlfiing a charming combination of pioturesquesness 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, Viotora A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the oity connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paoifle railway oom-
Eany has large interests in the oity,
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 iu Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle Hiver valley
there is an extent .if 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.
Huilding material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber oan 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 large
paying mines.
Water it supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of exoep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
oity of 60,000 Inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfeot plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine olimate, the' central situation, the beautlble environ-.
ments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
e an educational centre, a oity 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.
