TODAY'S NEWS OF THE WORLD.
Washington, Feb. 4.—The house
committee on foreign affairs yester-
day heard Immigration Commissioner
Powderly and President Gompers, of
the American Feberation of Labor, in
favor of strict Chinese exclusion as
provided in the Mitchell-Kahn bill.
In the course of his remarks, President Gompers criticised Wu Ting
Fang, the Chinese minister, saying:
"I resent the sneering remark of a
foreign diplomat that I am an agitator, or a labor agitator, or that the la-
loring people of this country who are
endeavoring to protect themselves
from Chinese   labar, are  agitators.    I

eurolled, and eighteen are still missing. Twenty-five mules have been
taken from the shaft. The scene at
tbe opening of the mine was horrible.
Wives, mothers and children of the
mangled men who perished in the explosion were screaming and crying
and refused to leave.

such a manner as this, and particularly when such references are of a

minister in this country is treated with
every becoming courtesy, aud he has
no right to make insinuation upon
American citizens acting upon behalf
that Holland inteuds to remodel her
offer concerning peace in South Africa and renew diplomatic representations to Great Britain. Dr. Kyper, the
Dutch premier, says the correspondent, has strong continental backing
and the negotiations are likely to be
prolonged.

GRAND FORKS, B.C. ..THE EVENING SUN..
H. S. TURNER.
WEDNESDAY,.FEBRUARY 5, 1902
The business office of The Evening
Sun is located at present in Columbia,
where all coriespondence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
A most remarkable occurrence took
place in the city council rooms in Co-
lumbit last night.
For three years a bitter, vindictive
fight has been on between the town-
sites of Columbia and Grand Forks.
Both sides finally became wearied of
the strife, and tbe method chosen of
bur, ing the hatchet was by means of
amalgamation, both parties agreeing
to certain conditions, one of the chief
ones being that tbe amalgamated city
should be thereafter known as
•'Miner."
The railroad authorities of the
Great Northern requested the change
because there is another town on its
line named Grand Forks, and the postal department objects to Columbia.
A decisive affirmative vote was taken.
It seems, however, that so far as
Grand Forks is concerned, all was
done with mental reservation that its
name should never be changed
Gall in the pursuit of the almighty
dolUr, is sometimes necessary; sometimes, in that light purely, admirable.
Alter righting Columbia day and
night lor three years up to this very
moment,, ruining many business men,
reuderio,' hnr h mses teuautless, depreciating her real estate lullv fifty
per cent, stealing her station name,
opposing in every way possible her
Kett iik any benefits by means of the
coming ol the Great Northern into
her bonlers, those who opposed amal
gamatioii even, foi tear Columbia
would drive some profit from the
scheme; who are even now suing out
and prosecuting injunctions against
the Great Norther., to prevent it building tb ough the town, and are making every effort to secure the removal
of the 0, P. ft. station from the limits
of tbe town, are sufficiently marble-
browed to appear before the city council of Columbia, as they did last night
and say, "Now, gentlemen, we approach vou in the most friendly spirit.
We leave all sentiment behind; this
is purely a business proposition. We
do i.ot desire to part with the name
of Grand Forks. It cost thousands of
dollars to establish its honor and
world-wide reputation, and the time
has arrived when we must Bay to you
we desire to place our famous brand
on your carcasses. We think you will
submit to this action on our part, for,
be assured, we approach you with Ihe
greatest goofi will and respect.''
Gall, did we say ! Is it, or is it not
gall?

COLOMBIA CITY COUNCIL.
Board met in regular session last
night in the office of Hay, McCallum
& Wright, all present except Alderman Cusson,
A communication from the chief
commissioner of lands and works was
read announcing that the Government
could not accept the bridge on Engineer Stoess' report, whereupon a committee was appointed to ascertain from
the engineer what changes were necessary to secure from him a favorable
report.
The Columbia board of school trustees was present with its estimates tor
the school year expenses, the chairman, I. A. Oinsmore explaining to the
council the object of the supplementary estimate of $225 lor additional
lots.    The estimates were passed.
Mr. Dinsmore also stated that he
and several of his neighbors were desirous of planting street shade trees
on several streets, and wished to know
if they did so whether the city would
enforce the pound law for their'protection, and allow th m city water for
irrigating purposes. The council replied in the affirmative.
The c luraittee appointed to apportion debentures reported.
During tbe session two special deputations from Grand Forks, one sent
by the board of trade and the other
by the council, appeared on the scene
al with loving kindness beaming
from their countenances aud olive
branches in their hands. The council
deputation consisted of Mayor Holland aDd Aldermen Sheads, Gaw and
Hammer, and SoliciiorE Miller. The
board ot trade representatives were,
E. Doberer, A. Miller and Mayor Holland. The object of tbe visit as stated
by Mr. D iberer was to ask Columbia
through her representatives if she
would consent to allow Grand Forks
to be placed in the amalgamation bill
as the name ol the new city. One after another the delegatees poured forth
their persuasive aDd convincing eloquence. Though two of Columbia's
council were nearly prostrated, nothing definite resulted.
The council  passed   a   resolution
agreeing upon the first of next January as date! when the amalga ated
governments shall begin business as
one municipality, and adjourned to
meet, again tonight to onsider the appeal from Grand Forks.

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Re^oi trees.
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 ubout 3!)0
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the city for
beauty Is not. excelled in America. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed bva riverof
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffiiiig a charming combination of picturesfiuesnes^ and grandeur
The Columbia & Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse aud yards
In the center  of  Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victorn & Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the oorpnrattou, thus giving
the city conniptions with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway com-
puny has larsfa Interests in the oity,
having selected the site on acoonnt of
thi superior natural aIvantares as a.
railway centre.
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best in Canada—part of
the summer Is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Thi"i>.irlioiit the Kittle Itivei- valliv
there is an extent of fertile agricul-
tural 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 frnit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
papulation.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brick lims and stone
of goo 1 quality can always be obtained .when required, f'
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Lai'ge
mineral lo:los have beea discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
thi city, an 1 what were mere prtis-
pmi a short time since are now large
payitiz mines.
Water is supplied the oity 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 ollmate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth aud 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.
