London,   April    II.—The'    Centra!
mountains for the proposed railway
from the coast to the interior of British Columbia south of Ihe C. P. R.,
was submitted to the legislature yesterday. The report is a very exhaustive one. Iu it Mr. Dewdney says :
"The result of the surveys show that
the Hope mountains cannot be crossed
without encountering serious engineering difficulties, which'would necessitate a very large expenditure ol
money, and I know ot nothing so
pressing, either in tbe way ot development along any line that might be de-
termined ou to warrant its construction. Outside of a few prospects that
have been brought in by miners, there
encouragement for this expenditure, except
the existence of some very fine timber on the west slope."

SATURDAY, APRIL 12, 1902
There are two routes by which the
people may escape in a great measure
from the extortions of tbe railway
companies. One is by water ways,
and the other by government ownership. The prii.ciole ot government
ownership has already taken deep
root in the minds of the masses, and
is enjoying a lusty growth. In a
province like British Columbia, where
a tew individuals own the government, of course tbat growth is slow ;
nevertheless throughout the length
and breadth of the land the principle
strengthens. In the matter of development ol the water ways, too, much
progress is being made. These water
ways, where tbey exist, break tbe
backbone oi railway cinches. The
congress of tbe United States bas just
appropriated over a half million dollars to clearthe Columbia river of obstructions, or to build a canal around
them, at The Dalles, Oregon. It took
congress twenty four years and something like two millions of the people's
money to build the locks below The
Dalles, which could have been accomplished in one-fourth the time at one-
half the expense had it not been for
the vicious efforts of railway lobbies
at Washington, The Columbia can be
made an open river from the Kootenays
to the sea.   It should be done.
CITY SUNBEAMS
I. Hughes, accompanied by his son,
N. Hughes, of Portage La Prairie,
Manitoba, arrived in the city yesterday. They are here for the purpose
of purchasing land and locating permanently. They expressed themselves as much pleased with the locality.
John A. Manly is said to be in
Wasbington, D. C. The report is going the rounds that he threw Mr. Holland down in his ranch deal with a
"dull, sickening thud—" to Holland.
At Knox Presbyterian church, the
pfcstor Kev. J. R. Robertson, B. A.,
will take tor the-subject of his discourse in the morning: "Is the Christian Sabbath a Divine Institution ?"
Subject lor evening service: "Who

Some ol the business houses which
were decorated with bunting yesterday in honoi of tbe railway celebration are all colors ot the rainbow today. Last night rains caused the
colors in the bunting to run, and
wherever it touched the buildings it
left stains. The Winnipeg hotel is
thus conspicuously marked.
George Johnson was killed at the
Mother Lode mine iu Greenwood yesterday, by a premature explosion.

As advertised, the opening day of
the R. & G. P. railway line between
this city and Republic is being celebrated today by the grand excursion
and two banquets, one at Republic
and the other at this epd of the line.
The special train arriving last night
over the Columbia & Western from
Rossland was well loaded with excursionists and invited euests of the local
railway promoters, and all of the best
hotels in the city were well supplied
with patrons. Tbe city, owing to the
electrical display and decorations with
flags and bunting, presented a charming appearance. The enthusiasm of
tbe citizens generally was not of the
unbounded or spontaneous character
it might have been had Mr. Holland
not interfered with the progress of tbe
V.,V. &E.
The excursion train It ft the Y south
of the city about 10 o'clock this morning. It consisted of four passenger
coaches, two Kettle River Valley
Lines cars and two C. P. R. cars,
drawn by the big enaine, No 3, of the
new road. Quite a crowd of spectators gathered at the point of departure, and a goodly number of Grand
Porks people accompanied the excursionists.
The local brass band dispensed music, and Carpenter & Co.'s photographer was there to picture the scene,
wh'ch, allin ttfl, was quite an imposing event, and so far a decided success.
On the return of the train tonight
tbe officials ot the R. & G. P. Ry..
with their guests, will be banquett-d
by the local board of trade. .    ...
At the Methodist church tomorrow
Rev. J. F. Betts will take for h^
morning subject, "God's Pre6en«je

be, "Moral Sublimity of the Bible."

The City of Columbia is 'situated
near the junction of the North Porks
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 ttower-bespansled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, fortfiIng a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Cann-
dion 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 trans-
coiititiental lines.
The Canadian Pacifle railway-company has large-interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway oentre, -   ,     .,
The climate, taken- all the year
around,'is the best in Catiadn—part of
the summer Is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
'' Throughout tin Kettle River Valley
there is an extent uf fertile agricultural, land, part of which is now being cultivated. I
Apples, plums, pears, prunes,-, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley, surrounding '
Columbia, divided into sfyiall frnitana
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population. .. " '   ■ -:-
