TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 1902
The Nrlson Miner lakes the same vie w
ot board of-trade influence in a general
sense as that taken by this paper, and
maintains that the boards being largely made up of those who are more or
less »nder the freight-tariff lash of the
Great Canadian Pinch, are prone to do
the bidding of that Jreat monopoly.
Speaking of ihe late session of the
Associated Boards of Trade at Kaslo,
and the resolution re the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal company our Nelson con-
teuu orary says :
"No resolution was adopted, bow-
ever, to the effect that tbe price paid
to the O. P. R. for haulage of coke and
coal from the Crows Nest Pass to Nelson, Granil Forks and Greenwood
should be less than it is. Every delegate present knows that it costs more
than tbe c al does in the (Vow's Nest
Pass to transport it from there to Nelson, Grand Forks and Greenwood,
aud yet no resolution s tting forth this
fact aud asking that a reduction be
made to a certain fixed figu e was
adop ed. It is known that the prices
of both coke and coal are higher at
the coast collieries and coke ovens
than is the Crow's Nest Pass, and yet
not a voice was raised in favor of a
resolution asking that 1 he coast companies lower their pr.ces on ihese products. Yet there would be just as
much justice in the one case as in the
other.

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Re^oi trees.
The City of Columbia is 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 America. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed bv a river of
bright, sparkling waler, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, fortfling a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia <Sfc Western railway,
which was constructed by the Cann-
dian Pacific Railway company, tins its
station, freight warehouse and yards
In the center  of  Columbia,   and the
Vancouver, 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 Pacifie railway com-
Eany has large interests in the city,
aving selected the site on account of
tho 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 .if 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 frnitand
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good quality oan 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 loles have boen discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time sinoe are now iarge
paying 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 iu 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
he 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.
