In regard to possible candidates for i Geo. Chappie has been awarded the
municipal honors at the forthcoming '; contract ,by the Grand Parka city
elections in Grand Forks, rumors are
as thick as the most Sensational could
desire. i<\
For mayoralty candidatea, Tracy
Holland's seems to be the name most
frequently mentioned; although yesterday a petition was circulated requesting James Anderson to accept
the nomination, which acceptance has
practically beeu made* On the other
hand, however, the knowing ones confidently state that the dark horse in
the contest and the one who will lead
the bunch when the votes are counted
next Friday, is Robert Harvey, who
all along and even at the present writing announces that he is not a candidate, but—well, time will tell.	
Probably the most interest is attached to the slate which "the clique"
has made up for the-board ot aldermen.
Street gossip yesterday had it that this
list included J. W. Jones, W. K. C.
Manly, Harry Sheads, Aid. Temple,
Joe Manly and A.D. Matthewson. All
of these but the last named are gentlemen who are well known in the lower
town'a commercial and political circles, and the stand they take on most
local questions is also well known.
Mr. Matthewson is an employee at
the smelter,- and it is said, that while
he haa no experience or claims as a
municipal officer, nor as a representative resident ol Grand Forks, his name
is slated with the idea of corraling the
"smelter vote" for the entire ticket.
This hardly does credit to' the men
who labor on the hill, since they aie as
wide awake and capable of judging a
man on his own merits-and the-value
he would be as a city guardian-—irrespective of whose names his was
coupled with—aa is any other element
in the city.
indications go to show the present
contest will-be the most spirited yet
held it* Grand Forks. And new entriea
are coming forward every hour.

The Liberal association of Grand
Forks, at a meeting held Monday
night, thoagb uo resolutions were
recorded to that effect, took a stand
similar to that taken by the Liberal
association of Columbia. That association recognizes the fact that, until
the Liberals of the interior are accorded fair representation with coast partisans, they may not be found working
in harmony with them, Interior Liberals are heartily tired of being cor-
raled and useci as ballast by the coast
politicians, and have concluded that
as long as they submit, such action
will be continued; hence, before taking positive action, they will await
the movement of other interior associations. It is to be hoped that the
Liberals throughout the interior will
awaken to a realization of the injustice
meted out to them by the coast leaders, and firmly rebel against its continuance.

This is the last day in which names
can be added to the voters' list for tbe
local municipal election, which is to
occur next Thursday.
The wages paid to labor come from
the products of labor—not from the
capitalist. This is the first item to
learn from the lessons of political
economy.	
A dispatch from Victoria conveys
the intelligence tl.at tbe legislative
assembly has been called to meet on
February 20th, which j.is one day
earlier than last year The result of
the municipal election in Vancouver

the defeated candidate for mayor was
supported by J. F. Garden, M.P.P.,
and Captain Tatlow, M. P. P., supported by the News-Advertiser, which
is edited by ex-finance minister Cotton, and it is intimated that Cotten
may be asked to join the Dunsmuir

Situation,    Environments   and    General
Resources.
fi
The City of Columbia is situated
neat 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 natural situation of the city for
beauty is not excelled is America. A.
verdure-cla4 and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling water, fringed with
forest trees aid surrounded-by mountains, forming a charming combination
of pictureequeness and grandeur.
The Columbia and Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouses and yards
iu  the centre of Columbia; and the
Vaucouver, Victoria and Eastern Railway company has located its depot
freight sheds and yards along the east
line ot the corporation, thus giving the
city connection with two great transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific Railway company has large interests in tbe city,
having selected tbe site on account mi
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre.
The climate, taken all the year
around, is the best in Canada—part of
the simmer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent of fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being
cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, 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 in the
district. Lumber can be procured 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 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 pumping from a beautilul spring of exceptional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants,
The Granby's smelter aHd converter
—the most modern aud perfect plaat
of tbe kind in America—employing
hundreds of men. is contiguous to the
city.
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautiful environments, the bright prospect for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister city, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.
