Must Get  Naturalized to
Vote at Municipal
Elections.
Victoria, April lo.—A ''ill was
passed by the provincial legislature
yesterday prohibiting alie.ns irom
voting at municipal elections. Heretofore in the province aliens owning
real estate have been permitted to vote
at all municipal elections, and iu
some cases their vote had quite a bearing ou the result, there being many
holders of real estate who have not
been natuialized.
At 3 o'clock yesterday morning tbe
house dided on the budget, when R.
L, Borden's amenomeiit was defeated
by 6i for and 117 against. Majority
for the government, 56. The vote was j
as follows: Against amendment, 117;
(or amendment, 6i;'paired, 30; absent, 3; constituency vacant, 1;
speaker, 1; total, 2i3!
for thumping his desk. The judge
said he thereby saved his neck. Both
Curl's and Bunsmuir got excited,
shaking their fists at one another.
Curtis read figures to show that the E.
& N. was lossing from $14,000 to $20-,
000 a year, aDd only Bhowed a profit
in 1899, when the balance in favor of
the revenue account was$5000. Duns-
n.uir said he had put up $650,000 in
the last few years to meet losses. He
said the Wellington colleries never
paid a dividend. The colleries would
likely benefit by the construction of
the Canadian Northern.
Going down the stairs after the inquiry, Dunsmuir said, he would have
to hit Curtis in the lace, for he could
not help it.
PEACE NEGOTIATIONS.
London, April 10,—The Associated
Press understands that the peace negotiations are progressing satisfactorily so far as tne Transvaalers are concerned, but the laUst advices indicate
that there is small proba' ility of the
Free Staters surrendering in a body.
The negotiations, thus far, have beer.

have decided tbat thev will celebrate
Victoria day; May 24th, as usual. It
was proposed that the celebration
should be held on coronation day, but
this was hft to tbe government to observe.
OLD ROUTE ABANDONED.
Victoria, April 10.—The news from
Ottawa last night that the Yellow
Head pass had been abandoned by the
Canadian Northern in favor of the
Pine River pass, with a terminus at
Skeena, was the burning topic of conversation among government supporters last night. It will have an
important bearing on the government's railway policy, which content
plated Yellow Head and Bute Inlet as
tbe pass and terminus.
The mining committee met this
morning and decided to make no alterations in mining legislation this
session.

FRIDAY, APRIL n, 1902
The influx of settlers to the Cana-
' dian west is simply wonderful. Tbe
exodus, this time from the States into
Canada,shows tbat tbe undeveloped
riches of western Canada are becoming known, and Canada is coming into
her own. The rush of settlers is unprecedented, and is taxing the railways to the limit to handle the business in connection with other trade.

with the first page printed in red in
commemoration of the railway celebration.

Kingston, 'diagnosed the case and
discovered the child had sustained a
fracture of the skull.
In another column will ><e found a
notice Irom the poundmaster, Al. McDonald. The poundmaster is backed
by law in this matter, and tbe notification must he taken seriously by the
citizens of Columbia. The street tree
planting movement is a commendable
one, aud every well-intentioned person will do everything he can to help
it along, and looking after his live
stock is one of the things he can - do,
and must do, to encourage the undertaking.

tomorrow, and as two.shifts of rail-
layers are working, the rails will be

Judge Hauford, thus removing that
obstacle from their right of way.

G. F. By. will be banqueted at Republic in the afternoon, when the

subjected to a like pleasant task, the
banquet here being tendered by the
Grand Forks board of trade.
ihe fact that only yesterday the V.,
V. & E. Ry. succeeded in overcoming
the injunction hindrance on the Manly
ranch will render the R. & G. F. Ry.

public.
Work on V., V. & E, Will

NOTICE

alOTICK is hereby given that live stock

that the deal iuvolving the>transfer of
title to the Manly ranch over which
the V., V. & E. R. company was
estopped from passing, to the railway
company, had been consummated,

ing throughout tbe city.
Now only the .necessary legal procedure of dismissing the case in Supreme court in Victoria remains to be
taken to close that chapter in the V.,
V. & E. history.
Engineer Kennedy left this morning for Cascade, and the reporter was
in consequence unable to obtain any

force of 150 or 200 men on Monday.
The tract purchased consists of one
thousand acres, and the price is said
to be $50,000.

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 eity 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, forffiing a charming combination of picturesq uesness 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, Viotora 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 Paoifle railway oom-
pany has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural a Wantages as a
railway centre,
The climate, taken all the yeor
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 of 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
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, ami brick lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The minin? interests are of the first
imporrance to this country, and will
. do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere pros-
peots a short time since 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 plaut
of the kind in 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
be 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 l>e
the best and largest oity in tho interior.
