  Great  Northern  will haul Republic
ores to Northport or, perhaps, will encourage the establishing ol a smeller
plant at Nelson, Wash., o*- at Cascade,

bestir themselves to get the dogs out

<UNION
{SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1902
The business office of The Evening
Sun is located at present 1.1 Columbia,
where all correspondence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
TURNER &. EVANS.
Mr. G. A. Evans, an old time journalist and an accomplished printer,
has bren associated with the undersigned in the printing and publishing
business of The Evening Sun. Mr.
Evans was for several years foreman
of the job department ol the Nelson
Economist. A large job plant of cew
material has arrived at the C. R. R.
depot, and wid be immediately moved
to our i ffice, which will enable The
Sun to do all kinds of commercial
printing in up-to-date style. We be-
speaK for Mr. Evans the same kindly
and generous reception that has been
accorded ourself, and promise our
readers tnat we will ever strive to
woik for the public good, and give
them better service as soon as conditions permit, and consonant with tafe
business managem lit.
H. S. Turner.
An effort is being made in Grand
Forks, aud Columbia should be ready
to join the movement, to hold a rousing citizens' meeting to discuss ihe
railway situation. The withdrawal of
the (jreat Northern from this side ol
the river is a severe blow to both
Grand Forks and Columbia. The suicidal course of the managers cf the
local road in allowing themselves to
be used as implements ot war by the
C. P. R. against the Great Northern is
most deplorable. The Great Northern would have expended nearly if
not quite as much money in getting
into to town and to the smelter, iu the
erection of freight and passenger depots as the Republic road will expend
on its entire line. Besides it would
have put the city in touch with another transcontinental line and with
the coast and u.a6e it the distributing
center lor a large area. But as it is,
we are to remain at the cold and exacting mercy ot the Canadian Pacific
cinch, When the Republic & Grand
Forks road is completed, and the
Great Northern goes into Republic,
many mines in that vicinity will recommence operations, and this city
will thereby be drained of its floating
population, who will flock to Republic. If iu the meantime the city could
have had the benefit of the money put
into circulation by the proposed Great
Norther* improvements, it would be
far better. There will he a few cars
of ore coming down trom Republic
every day and a little mixed freight going up.bui what is that compared with
the greater benefit of a road over
into the Okauagan and Similkameen
valleys and on to the coast.   Being
The outcuine of the so-called Liberal convention in Vancouver on the
6th and 7U1 instants, constitutes one
of the most remarkable political evolutions and revolutions ever witnessed
in this province, and renders confusion worse confounded. After being
thrown down and snowed under overwhelmingly at the last provincial
election, and denounced Irom one end
of the province to the otuer by tbe
press, Liberal and conservative, foi
daring to ask the suffrages of the people on a platform with which they
could find no fault and declaring for
the people against the monopolies,
Joseph Martin, the inepress-ible, bob*
up by the convention's niHJ"rity vote
as the leader of the Liberal party and
the champion of the C. P. R. cii.ch.
This, taken in counecti in with the
obstructions put in its way by the
dogs in the manger in Grand Porks,
was probably what caused tbe Great
Northern to suddenly decide to cease
its efforts so lar as this community is
concerned. The result of the couven
tion is a wide cleavage in the | rovin-
cial Liberal party, which will give the
Conservatives a good fighting chance
lor supremacy in the next campaign.
Elsewhere we give some details of the
convention.
Oreeon and Washington farmers
have been pleading many years for
an open river to ihe sea—fo' obstructions to be removed Irom ths Uolum
bia at certain points which now obstruct continuous navigation. Tli *
railroads control the law-making powers, so the farmer must pay cinch
freight rates while he waits.

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Re^oi irces.
The Oity 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 wuier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forrRing a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia & Western railway,
which was constructed by tho Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of  Columbia,  aud the
Vancouver, Victora & 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 aooount 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.
Thr -rifli lit the Kittle Itiv.ir 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 nt
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
Impor ance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lo lis have been discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere pros*
pepts a short time since are 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 iu America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the cpn-
tral situation, the beautible 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.
