That record as chairman of the

for Harvey.—Gazette,
People tell the Sun that it was the
rejonl of the Gazette that did the
business for Harvey and Donaldson.
The malicious insinuations 011 tbe
part of that tinhorn blackmailer made
votes for both of the re-elected candidates. It was the Gazette millstone
about Anderson's neck that caused him
to fear defeat. He did not desire to
b' louml Urad in si.ch company. Mr.
Harvey's and Mr. Donaldson's reelection is a severe rebuke to the Gazette's bi utish methods, and demonstrates the fact that decency can be
sustained at the polls in this city.
on all questions in the cities where
they reside. The clubs will study
Buch questions as, the best forms of
city governments,, the care of criminals and paupers, arbitration between
capital and labor, tenement house and
liquor laws, public baths, parka,
streets and. school*,
polling booths, open all day. The
study of such questions as these and
their discussion in debate, will soon
make a generation of young people
fit for good civic service. Where
could a better field be found foi such
work than in this country where we
are building new towns and cities,
and where we ought to avoid the ruts
and mistakes of older communities?
junder arrest, and search is being made
for tbe missing goose, who, whatever

bail will be enjoyed by the city, but

It has been apparent for three or
four years that the Christian Endeavor movement in Canada and the
United States was wauing. This has
been the burden of the addresses at
the last three international convention.;. The society was simply dying
lor lack ot something to do. It had
found that a society, no more than a
church which stood for nothing aiore
than sermons, prayers and testimony
could not meet the demands ol our
ttge. Very wisely they have caught
the truth that the immediate mission
of the church and all her societies
must be a social one. Seeing this, the
society has established in every community where it is represented, a congress of Civic Clubs. The movement
has interested hosts of young men in
the problem of municipal government.
"The problem of the city" is now the
greatest ol all political problems.
(Juristian citizenship is a religious duty. The Endeavor society comes in
as the educating force to fit the coming generation to understand and
solve this problem. The members
are sacredly   bound to be  intelligent

Resources.
The City of Columbia is situated
near the junction of the North Fork
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east from Vancouver.    '
The natnral situation of the city for
beauty is not excelled iu America. A
verdute-clatl and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling water, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination
of picturesquenees and grandeur.
The Columbia and Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouses and yards
.n the centre of Columbia; and the
Vaucouver, Victoria and Eastern Bail-
way company has located its de pot
freight sheds and yards along the east
line ot the corporation, thus giving the
city connection with two great transcontinental lines.
The Canadiau 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 Canada—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 qf fertile agricultur-
atland, part of which is now being
cultivated.
Apples, plums, pearl, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The vvlley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful iu the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brick, lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained
wher, required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and wi.l
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city by pump
•ii • "
ing from a beautitul sprint; of exceptional purity, capable of supplying «
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby's smelter and converter
• -the most modeui and perfect plaat
ol" tbe kind iu America—employing
hundreds of men. is contiguous to the
city. '   Pi-
Owing to the fine climate, the central situatiou, the beautiful environments, the bright pfospect for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a  city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distrihu-
' »
ting point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister city, will be
the best and largest city iu the interior.
