TODAY'S NEWS OF THE WORLD.
San Antonio, Tex., Feb. .3.—The
latest information from the Hondo-
Mexico mine explosion show it to
have been lully as serious as at first
reported. There were a total of 106
miners at work at the time the explosion occurred, and all of them are
dead The majority of the victims are
Mexicans and Cninamen, very few
Americans having been at work in the
mine. Every mule in the mine was
killed, three dead ones being taken
out yesterday. The work .of clearing
out the wreck in order to get to the
buried miners is being rushed, but
there is no hope that any of them will
be rescued alive. The explosion occurred in urine No, 6, and was occasioned by striking a gas pocket.
Vancouver, Jan 3,—The Vane iuver, J
Westminster, Northern & Yukon rail-1
way, backed by the Great Northern, is
meeting with opposition in its request
to the city to be given 100 acres of
of False creek flats for terminal facilities. This line has a scheme to connect Cariboo, Omineca and Dawson
with Vancouver. It is directing its
attention just now to completing plans
to run a railway from Vancouver to
Westminster, where connection
will be made with the Great
Northern branch to Seattle,
thus giving the Hill line di-ect entry
into this city, a course which was denied it years ago      ,~ \
Greenwood, Feb. 3.—The fall of
snow has made it possible, after three
months' delay, to haul ore from the
No. 7 mine to the Greenwood smelter.
R. Meyerhoff, of Midway, has taken
tke contract for hauling. Blue &
Fisher, formerly saw millers in the I
Boundary, have settled their partnership matters, mutually agreeing upon
a division of partnership property.
Impending litigation is therefore
stopped.
Toronto, Feb. 3.—Colin McLeod
used the union label of the journeymen tailors without authorization and
was sued by the tailors' union. This
morning Judge Briton gave judgment
declaring McLeod had not used or
issued any fraudulent trademark in
contravention of any right of plaintiff,
or other member of the union. The
decision is a declaration that the right
to use a union label is not restricted to
those so authorized by the union.
Vancouver, Feb. 3.—The Marble
Bay copper-gold mine and the lime
quarries on Texada island, British
Columbia, owned by J. J. Palmer of
Toronto and the Christie estate, were

capitalists. The sale price was $200,-
000. Tbe first payment, amounting to
$4o,ooo, wac made today when the
new owners took possession. Prominent among the buying syndicate are
Henry Hewitt, Jr, of Tacoma, and
Col. C. W. Thompson and A. J. Hay-
ward of Seattle. The new company
has also secured control of large coal
and coking properties on the coast.
Shipments of lime from the Marble
Bay quarries are made at present at
the rate of 4000 tons per month, principally to the Pacific Coast states and
Honolulu.
Toronto,    Feb.  3.—Ten  thousand
dollars has been paid for a seat on the j
stock  exchange  by Messrs Osborne
and Francis.

The Nelson delegates to the coast
Liberal conventio to be held at Vancouver on the 6th instant are W. G.

original efforts to secure an attendance
of delegates safely gaged and muzzled.

1     LOCAL NEWS.     |
The city council of Grand Forks
last night appointed H. C. Kertnan
assistant to City Clerk Bower. At a
f.'i'mer meeting of the council a resolution was passed authorizing such
appointment, and the resolution declared tliat the assistant should be n
fireman, single, and sleep in the fiie
hall. The action last night was not
in accord with the resolution referred
to. Mr. Kerman is a married man,
and not a fireman. One of the main
objects in calling for an assistant to
Mr. Bower was to secure some one
whe would be under pay from the
city and obliged te sleep in the fire
hall to attend to lire alarms at night.
There were six applicants for the position; P. H. Donaldson, D. McCallum. R. A. McMordie, H. C. Kerman,
F. H. McKenzie and L. Crossen. Mr.
Donaldson and Mr. McKenzie are experienced firemen, the latter being
Chief of the Greenwood fire department. The effect of the appointment
is to leave the city as before, bo far as
fire 1 rotection at niget ifi concerted
at the fire hall, dependent still on
volunteer service. However, Alderman Sheads informs the Sun that
Chief of the  fire department Savage
has mcved into the fire hall and will
sleep there hereafter, and that other
rooms will be fitted up for other firemen, who will also sleep there.
F. Hartinger, proprietor of the Columbia brewery, would uot stand'to
be gouged by the C. P. R. governmeLt
cinch. Recently he ordered two beer
vats from Louden, Ont., the construction cost ol which is stated to be $50
each. When the vats arrived here
he found the freight charge against
them to be $203. Mr. Hartinger re
fused to pay that amount, offering the
company $100, which was refused.
The breweryman then told the company to keep the vats. After retaining possession of them for a week or
more Mr. Hartinger was informed he
could have the vats at his figures $100.
No wonder. the C. P. R. is moving
heaven and earth and premiers and
judges and mayors to retain its cinch
by keeping other railroads out of
southern British Columbia, when it
can cut its demands in two in the middle.
The offices of the V. & N. te'ephone
company and the C P. R. commercial
telegraph are to b? separated. The
room adjoining, formerly occupied by
the Spraggett lumber company is being fitted up foi occupancy by the
latter.
Another case of small pox is reported fro    Qninlivan'scamp.    '
Constabk McMillan is up from Cascade. James Kelly and D. C. Beach
came in from the same point yesterday.

Situation,    Environments   and    General
Resources.
The City of Columbia 's 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 waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffling a charming combination of pieturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia & 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
Vancouver, Victor.a A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
Hue of the corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway company has largo interests iu tbe city,
having selected the site on aocount of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway oentre,
The climate, taken all the year
around/is the best iu 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 <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 frnit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
pooulatlon.
Building material is plentiful in the
distriot. Lumber can be prooured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have beea discovered
throngh the mountains adjaoent to
the oity, aud what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of exceptional purity, capable of supplying a
oity 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
eity,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautibla environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be 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 city in the in- -
terior.
