The Provincial  Progressive Party Unfurls
Its Banner.
The first lahor convention of this

reason to hope. Chis, Foley, the Labor commissioner was elected President of the organizition.

THE EVENING SUN
TURNER a IVANS.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 23, 190*
Notwithstanding the fact that th'j
actual unity of the cities of Columbia
and Grand Forks under one municipal
government does not take legal effect
under the amalgamation hill just oass-
ed until January 1, 1903, it is not too
soon to begin now to cultivate a leel-
iug of kinship and study the situation
from a standpoint of oneness. When
the mayors of the two places return it
might not be deemed out of place to
suggest that a "smoker" be held at
which the good citizens of both communities could puff the pipe of peace
while commemorating a great event—
the obliterating of the dividing line
between ^thern, the burying of the
hatchet never to be resurrected, burning of scalps that have in the past
dangled from the belts of some of the
braves in the unholy intercene strife,
and declare tbat henceforth they will
labor lor each other's good rather than
injury. In obier words a sort mutual
admiration and joliHcation meeting.
For the benefit of the uninformed
on the points referred to we print the
following two seel ions of the amalgamation bill:
Sec. 42. After incorporation of the
new city there shall be elected a new
board of school trustees for the new
city in accordance with the provisions
of the Public Schools Act and amending acts.
Sec. 43. Notwithstanding the provisions of the Public Schools Act arid
amending acts the members of the
board ol school trustees for the time
being of the city of Grand Forks as
at present constituted, and of tbe city
of Columbia, shall hold office only
until tbe election of the new board of
trustees for the new city, as provided
for in the preceding section.

Business men who do not believe
advertising does their business anv
good, should also hdd.if con;is ent,
that, it can do them no harm. But not:
so. When the editor happens to print
something reflecting on their goods or j
methods ha soon hears from them.
Yt-t they will tell the publisher advertising does not pay.
F. J. Deane, formerly of the Kam- 1
loops Sentinel, has taken over the
Nelson Mintr and changed its title to
The Daily News. Mr Deane is known
as an able and aggressive journalist, j
and the News should prosper under
his management.
In railway matters not much activity exists locally, except in the line
uf street discussion, The commotion
caused by the street reports regarding
the action of the expert accountants,
is subsiding. These difficulties, if
others ot a more serious nature are not
uncovered, will not retard the completion of the road. It is stated at headquarters that Mr. Morris will be in the
city this evening. On the other hand,
it is reported on the streets that the
"manager's car" is at steelhead, serving as a temporary official residence.
In V., V. & E affairs it is expected,
Irom a telegram which came from Victoria yesterday afternoon, that the
government will give out its decision,
as to the injunction case today. We
are informed on good authority that
the Great Northern has all Ihe money
for right ol way purpose's on deposit
in the Bank of Montreal at Rossland,
aud is ready to piocied as soon as it
is legally permitted to do bo.
CITY SUNBEMAS
Mr. Davis, apent of the Northwest
Home Finding association, ol Spokane, will address amass meeting in
the Methodist church this evening.
Tbe object of the association is to seek
homeless, neglected and abused children and youth, and to provide homes
for them where they will be loved,
trained and educated for future usefulness. The public is cordially invited to attend the meeting.
Last evening about 6 o'clock a lively
runaway occurred in Columbia, little
damage resulting, however. One of
H. L. Newett's dray teaa;s started
from bis bam on Prairie street, ran up
Spring street across the railroad track
and down over tie bridge onto the
fiat at a break ness gait. They were
brought to a standstill near 11. C.
llaninglon's place. Fortunately there
happened to be no other teams on the
bridge at tbe time, else tbere would
have been serious results. There were j
five sacks of urain in the hack, which 1
served as ballat-t and kept the carriage 1
from capsizing while going around
sharp curves.
Renumber the birthday party at the
Methodist church tomorrow nigbu.
A Correction—An aggravating error 1
occurred in yesterday's issue   of The
Sun in a birth notice. The name used I
should have beeu Howey instead of
Harvey, We owe both families an
j apology for the blunder, which was
j easily made, owing to the similarity
of the two names, when carelessly
written. The notice, as corrected,
should read: "Born, April 22, 1902,
iu Grand Forks, B. C, to the wife of
Robert Howey, a son."

Situation,    Environments-
Resources.
and    General
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, forffllng a charming combination of picturesquesuess and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center of Columbia,  and the
if
Vancouver, Victora * Eastern Railway oompany, 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 Paoifle railway company has large interests in the oity,
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'ili Can.adn—part of
the summer is rather hot ami-dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.'   ■» „
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent ml 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 fr nit 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 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
Jhrongh the mountains adjacent to
trie eity, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
' paying mines.
Water 1* supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of exoep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
-the most modern and perfect plaut
of the kind in America -employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
oity., i.f,  .
' Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the heautibln environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational oentre, a city of
homes.i as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the beat and largest city in the Interior: ."'.■•'   .
