Ottawa, January 28.—The Canadian
Pacific railway has'applied to the Dor-
minion government to'approve of the
resolution authorizing the board of directors, with the sanction of the shareholders, to increase -the1 capital stock
of thai Company to the extent of $20,-
000,000 for the purpose of enabling it
to build new locomotives and cars, lay
heavier rails, arrange for the double-
tracking of certain sections and provide such other ithp'rbve'nients as may
be found necessary to cope with the
large increase of traffic which has
taken place, and which is expected in
the ne!ar-:futtire'.[' '
Tbet^iohey is to be expended as follows: «iN«w rolling stock, $9,000,000;

$500,000, making a total of {20,000,000.
This is the first time in the history ' of
Canada where a railroad has been
financially strong enough to raise additional capital enough by selling its
common stock, but to ensure that
every dollar of stock issued shall be
represented by a dollar of cash in bet.
terment in the raiiwa>, the ' government, has stipulated that none of the
stock shall be sold below par.    '        ''
To lurther safeguard the public in-
terest.tthe ministers have asked tbe
company to agree, and the company

parliament or the governor in-council
can interfere with its. tolls,- this new
stock and the proceeds of it shali be
included in tbe actual cash cost of the
railway. Id this way the time is bring hastened when the government
will,have right to interfere and reduce the tolls of the company if found
to be'nnrtasonablc1''-      "  '
Again, questions have been arising
iu parliament as to the exact mean ug
of this section, which excludes the
right of parliament to interfere with
tolls nntil 10 per cent has been earned
upon the cost of the road. The government aud company have 'therefore
agreed to submit a friendly reference

Tbe business office of Tbe Evening
Sun is located at present in Columbia,
where all correspondence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
Wherever you go tbe political boss
and wirepuller is the bane of the community. He never thinks of the common good, lie is extremely selfish,
a cute and acute liar, and would sooner
have a government position at $25 a
month, that he has struggled, lor
years to obtain, than $100 at any other
employment. If be can only be a
party boss, it doesn't mat.er if he has
not got aay salary at all, because
he is (joint; to be a premier some
day—an M. P. or a senator—bnt generally winds up as a justice of tbe
peace or a notary public. Just now a
wave of pnblic sentiment down in
Oregon is crystalizing around tbe cry
of, "Kill off the political bosses." We
hope the Oregon effort will become
epidemic ami extend to British Columbia. No quarantine regulations
should be set up against it. .    ;

The deinan 1 for the election of United States senators by popular vote
has at last assumed definite form.
Seven Suites have made formal demand upon congress for an amendment to ihe national Constitution that
will enable the pe.ple to elect senators without the intervention if '{lie
legislature, and their example will
doubtless be followed by other states
until the requisite two-thirds of the
whole number of states have spoken.
The states which have thus far
served official notice on congress demanding a submission of tbe proposed
amendment, under Article V of tbe
Constitution ol the United States are
Colorado, Michigan, Montana, Oregon, Idaho and Nevada. Tbe legislature of Nebraska, at its session last
winter, also passed a similar, resolution, which has not yet reached the
Secretary of State.
Tbe demand for the election of
United States senators by popular
vote is not a populist freak nor a socialist scheme. It has been publicly
discussed and advocated in every section of tbe country, by same of tbe
ablest and most conservative leaders
of tbe great political parties, and bas
repeatedly been voiced through legislative memorials to congress. Morn
than thirty state legislatures have formally declared in lavor of tbe election
o; senators by tbe people, bnt tbe r 's-
olutions have been presented to the
sen ate aud bouse of representatives
of tbe Unite:l Slates without rrsul*.
While tbe house of representatives
has several limes a dopled the proposed constitutional   amend me nt   by

The natural situation of the city for

rolling prairie, travarsed by a river of
bright, Sparkling water; fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffiing a charming combination ofsplcturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia &  Western   railway,
which was constructed by   the   Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its I
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the' center  of Columbia,  and the
m
Vancniiver, Victor.a A Eastern Railr
way company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of tu.) corn iratinu, tlius giving
the city eoiin.ctioiis with two transcontinental lines.
Tub Canadian PaoiHe railway com-
Eany has large interests in the city,
aving selected the site oi aaoount of
t i,j suoaripr ustiustl advintires as a
rail way centra.
The climata, taken all the year
around,'is the best in Canada—part of
the summer is rattier hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.

Water is supplied the city by pumping from a beautiful spring of exceptional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and  converter
—the most modern and perfect plant

hundreds of men, is contiguous to the'

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 be
the best and largest city in the interior.
