FRIDAY, JAN.  24, 1902
The business office of The Evening
Sun is located at present in Columbia,
where all correspondence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
The Gazette people find themselves
in a business muddle. Thev had a
g-ood weekly circulation and business,
but to not be outdone by the Evening
Sun, they started a daily publication,
tbe latter being dumped into the Lr
nier and served to its renders a seeped
tinif. The daily is the more expensive of the two publications, and is destroying the circulation and business
of the weekly. In other words they
are cutting their Ho«es off to spite |
their faces. This splitting up of the j
weekly business with a daily, is rendering both profitless and more expensive, and less satisfactory to tbe
public.
The noted agitator, Stead, of the
London Truth, is nothing if not original, aud lie succeeds in keeping the
readers not only of his great Iwine
city, but the world at larife well supplied with original thought, 'lis latest conception is a trust that shall
combine the governments of Great
Britain and the United States under
one head. He _>s the new feature ol
tii-iil Britain's government both at
home and in her colonies are lashion-
eil after methods adopted by the Uni-
ted Stales tovernnient, which is to a
considerable extent true. It may be
admitted at once that a trust of this
stupendous magnitude could dictate
to the world, in peace or war.
We don't know just how it started,
hut the newspapers arc discussing Ihe
feasibility of having the ward system
in incorporated towns abolished by
provincial nactment. As it is now tht
law-making powers at Victoria li;<ve
enough to say in local matters without allowing them any more. Let the
different localities adopt their own
local regulations.
It is remarkable that ill this stage of
the march ol civilization, a band of
Turkish or Bulgarians cun commit
the theft of two live human bodies,
and dictate terms upon wnich they
shall be released, receiving therefore
large ransom. It does not seem possible that such a condition could exist
except bv the co-operation of some interested government-

Resources.
The City of Columbia 's situated
near the junction of the Nortk Porks
of the Kettle river with the main Ket-
tlo 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 anil tioiver-bespaugled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
brighto sparkling water,fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, fo'rffilng a charming combination orpioturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Cuua-
ili.ui^PAcitto Railway oorapany, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of  Columbia,  aud the
Vancouver, Viotoria A Eastern Bail-
way company, has located Its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
Hue of the corporation, tliu-i giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines. j,
The Canadian Pacific railway'eom-
pany has large interests iu the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway «entre, . !.
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.
Tirjurhoiit the Kettla itiver valley
thare is an extent wf 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 una
vegetable fai'Ms,vVvill sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Ijiimbei' can be procured at
fair prices, an 1 brick lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required. -ii
The mining interests are of the first
importunes to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Largo
mineral lodes have been discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, nu'l what were mere pros:
pacta a short time since are now largo
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city by pumping from a bbautiful spring of exceptional purity, Capable of supplying u
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
-the most modern aud perfect plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine, climate, the cen-
trul situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for Inline
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a city of
hollies, 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.
