MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1902
Uf late complaints have been frequently heard respecting the dispatches sent out from this point relating to tbe railway situation.
It is generally thought the strictest
regard for truth and unbiased statement is observed by the newegatherers
for the Associated Press serv'ce.
Such is not always the case, in fact
it is seldom the case. It oitener is
used to deceive and mislead the public
abroad. It is frequently used to effect
impressions absolutely false.
It is a question if Grand Forks is
the gainer in the long run from over-
colored or distorted representations
through the Associated press regarding local matters. The objections
lodged locally are that the railway
news sent out bears the earmarks of
interests opposed to tbe V„ V. & E.,
thus aiming to create public sentiment
against that enterprise in the courts of
justice ami legislation.
PROSECUTING  WITNESS FAILED
MAKE OCT A CASE.
TO
In the case of Clay Muntell, who
was arrested on the charge of horse
stealing, at the instigation of parties
hailing Irom Whi mar, county.Wash.,
it would seem that the prosecution
had very slight grounds for bringing
the charge against Mr. Muntell, the
difficulty arising from a horse deal
that terminated unsatisfactory to the
prosecuting witness. The case was
promptly dismissed by Majistrate
Johnson on tbe statements of the complainant that the same did uot prove
theft. Sheriff McKay, returned to
Whitman today, more or less disgusted with having been to 30 much
trouble and expense ou so flimsy a
pretext as was finally brought forward by the complainant.

New York, Feb. 24.—The United
States transport McLellan, which {left
her dock yesterday and anchored in
tbe bay for tbe night, put to sea this !
afternoon ou her long voyage to Manila, by way ot Gibraltar and the
Suez canal. On doard the McLellan
are two hundred school teachers, moot
of tbem coming from tbe middle
states and the south and west.
PROVINCIAL CONSTABLE I .A. DINSMORE
CAUGHT THEM.
It pays to know the law, and to
keep it, as well. For the protection
of certain wild game, and fish, it has
been found necessary to institute certain legal regulations to prevent their
to'al extermination. It is a pretty
well known fact tha» trout fishing is
prohibited between the 14th day of
October and tbe 15th day  of  March.
From the result of Constable Dins-
niore's catch yesterday it would seem
that at least some persons were either
ignorant «r defiant of the law. He
caught a string of six who bad been
fishing iu Smelter Lake contrary to
law. Informations were laid against
tbem today.
Robinson of Rossland and Rev. J. M.
Millar ot Phoenix, have been appointed as commissioners of Presbytery to
confer with the Columbia congregation regarding matters of the most vital importance. Members and all adherents of Ihe congregation are urgently requested to be present.

Portage La  Piairie,   Feb.   22.—A j
record in  early seeding has been es-
tablished this year by Thomas Leader I
a farmer, who resides west of Portage
OU the plains.    Yesterday Mr. Leader I

ble, he will put  in 200   acres  more.!

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Resources.
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 800
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 by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffilng a charming combination of pioturesqiiesness 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
Vancouve r, 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 transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway company has large interests in the city,
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 in Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent ">t 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 snail fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is Plentiful In the
district. Lumber can be prooured at
fair prices, air! brick lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining intprests are of the first
imporlance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects n 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
eity 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
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
e an educational centre, a eity 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 oity in the Interior.
