WESTWARD HO!
Winnipeg. April 25.—Evidences of
the northward trekking of American
settlers to Canada are continually being brought to the notice of the department of immigration. Wherever
there is a customs house the officials
find that American immigrants are
coming in by wagon with their effects
and taking cars for points in the Canadian west. As a typical example
thecaseof Snowflake might be cited.
THE MEAT TRUST.
The meat combine in tbe States is
arousing antagonism in every direction. All over the country meat is
advancing in price, until it has become almost prohibtive to the poorer
classes. A novel movement has been
started in Washington, D. C, to bring
the combine down off its oerch. The
proposition is to organize a "non-meat-
eating" club. Already fifty local men
have been listed as members and
workers. It is tbe intention ot the
promoters of tbe club to secure a membership of millions, every one to sign
a pledge to eat no meat for thirty days.
Despairing of relief through recourse
to law, the public, suffering under the
almost piohibitory prices created by
the food trust, have taken tbe matter
into their own hands aud through the
ust of tbe boycott hope bring the
giant monopoly to terms aud effect a
return to an equitable scale of pi ices
Throughout the countrv, particularly
in tbe eastern section, the people are
pledging themselves to abstain from
meat for periods varying from a week
to several months. Through tliid expedient it is hoped that by an enormous decrease in the sxle  nf beef the

Thursday, Johu Trotter, the lineman, and A. Wright were returning
from Phoenix to Columbia on a
"speeder." When a short distance
above Fisherman station, coming at
good speed and rounding a curve, they
suddenly came upon two horses which
had strayed outo the track. The animals appeared to be greatly frightened, and f-ped away down the track
at a furious rate, the speeder following at a distance. Finally the horses
came to the trestle over Fisherman
creek, which, in their fright; they
assayed to cross. The buckskin succeeded in getting over, but the white
one got a leg down between the ties
and was fast. On approach of the
men. who desired to aid the animal to
free itself, it succeeded in extracting
its leg from between the ties, aud despairing of making the rest of the journey across the bridge, it locked over
the side as if to note the distance to
terra lirina, and then leaped into
space. It was an exciting scene for
the onlookers, who stood breathless
while the unfortunate animal shot
downward a distance of 150 leet or
more. The horse, in its descent, btruck
the framework of the bridge which
flared downward,only once, when itis
supposed its neck was broken, for the
meu say it never moved a limb after
striking the ground.

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Resources.
The Oity 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 Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed bya riverof
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffi ing a charming combination of pictiiresquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A 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, 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. i|
The Canadian Paoifle railway com-
Eany has large interests in the city,
aving selected the site on acopunt of
the 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, hut
the rest of the yearns enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent «f fertile agricultural laud, 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
population.
Iliiildiug material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, aud brlok 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 largo
paying mines.
Water is supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
eity 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 beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
e an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a Wholesale distributing point; and whoh finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.

be found the very latest news of
the world, its matter including information on politics, commerce,
agriculture, mining, literature, as
well as the local happenings in
the states of Montana, Oregon,
Idaho, Washington, and the province of British Columbia. In addition, its columns for women, its
popular science articles, its short
and continued stories, its "Answers to Correspondents," and
"Puzzle Problems" combine to
form a home newspaper that at
$1.00 per year can nowhere be
excelled.
Perhaps you have som.thlng to sell—a farm,
a team, farm machinery. You may wish to
