Columbia and Grand Porks officials
should set their beads jointly right
and construct a sidewalk to the boundary line hetween each city. Then a

avowed purpose of having a cycle

sooner steps are taken to link the two
towns indissoluably together, the
sooner will old grudges be buried-and
harmony established.

tbe pride of its promoters and by far
most substantial educational edifice in
tbe Boundary country.
The pupils ot the Grand Forks public schools will be martialed, and led
by the local brass band, marched
to the new school grounds about one
o'clock p. in. It is expected tbat sufficient interest will he taken in the
important occasion to induce parents
and public spirited citizens to fall in
line, and that every child of school
age in the city will swell the tanks of
the procession beyond proportions ever
before witnessed in the citv.
At the building the first feature of
the celebration will be the raising of
the school flag, followed by appropriate addresses. Rev. R. W. Trotter, it
is understood,will deliver the opening
address,followed byothersp-»kers who
will address their remarks to parents,
teachers and pupils touching their
dutisas such, aud the great responsibilities in these matters resting upon
the shoulders of all.
Let all willingly lend a helping
hand in making this an impressive
and profitable occasion to the school
children of the community.
OFFICIAL STATEMENT
W. C. Morris, assistant general manager of the R. & G. F. railway, says
officially:
"The complete audit shows a shortage of $5884 in the receipts of Birbeck
and Haywood. They misappropriated
refunds made by the Canadian Pacific and other roads on account of
excess of freight charges for material
and equipment brought in for road.
Their official positions gave them exceptional  facilities  for  speculating.
Over $1,000,000,000 have passed
through the hauds of General Manager Holland and myself, and tbe company and its officers feel that tbe
shortage discovered is a small affair,
considering tbe large amount disbursed and the number ol men
that hold responsible ■ positions ot
trust. The complete audit exculpates
every official except tbe absconding
officials. We are taking steps to secure their apprehension."
The finest beer we have seen in this
part of the country is made at the

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 Ameriea. A
verdure-clad, and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees aud surrounded by moun-
] tains, forffllng a charming combination of picturesquesness 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 * Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the oity connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway oom-
pany has large interests in  the  city,
having selected the site on account 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, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.    - it
Throughout the Kettle Hiver valley
there is an extent -if fertile agricultural land! part of whioh is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. ,The valley 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 oity, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water la supplied the city by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tioual purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
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 be
the best and largest city in the interior.  .,
