FRIENDS, NOT ALLIES.
London, March 9.—Lord Avebury,
(Sir John Lubbock) presided Friday
at the banquet here of the Associated
Chambers of Commerce of the United
Kingdom.
Joseph H. Choate, American Ambassador to Great Britain, in replying
to a toast, ' The Ambassadors," said
that upon returning from America,
the land of sunshine, to the impenetrable fog of London, he began to
think his country owed more to sunshine than many of bis countrymen
were willing to believe. He was ready
to concede that the people of th.?se
fojgy islands had had a marvelous
series of centuries of success and renown. J'he future alone could tell,
continued tbe speaker, what his own
countrymen might achieve under
brighter skies.
Mr. Choate eloquently referred to
two dreamers who had lived one hundred and fifty years apart. The first
was Benjamin Franklin, who picture^
the American continent peopled and
ruled by the British; the second was
L' rd Rosebery, who indulged in pictures of what might have happened if
a separation bad not occurred. Mr-
Choate asked if the actual picture
Been today was not far grander than
the picture either of Franklin or Lord
Rosebery. Great Britain and America
were great nations, standing together
as friends, not allies; neither one looking down or up to the other, but on a
strictly equal footing; both equals in
energy, resources and ambition, and
working out on absolutely independent lines the same great ends of
civilization, knowledge and liberty.
IMMIGRANTS, HOMESEEKERS.
Winnipeg, March 9.—Yesterday's
train from the east was again in two
sections. The first had 200 immigrants on board, the majority being
Europeans. The second section had
125 eastern homeseekers. The stream
of immigration is likely to continue
with renewed force. Sixty men who
arrived from the south yesterday were
practically all delegates as well as intending settlers. They stated that
over 1000 persons are waiting for their
report as to which is the best place to
locate. They say the immigrants are
going via the Soo line in great numbers.
British Columbia, has submitted an
interim report asking tbac their
further report be delayed until they
have a chance of seeing the traps.
BUREAU OF MINES.
Montreal, March 9.—It is learned
on good authority that tbe Dominion
government has decided to meet the
request of the Canadian Mining Institute and establish a bureau of mines.
Prof. Haanel, at one time in the
employ of the Ontarie government,
and who has been living in the United
States for some time, will take charge.
ELECTRIC COMPANIES COMBINE
Toronto, March 9 —It was reported
yesterday that an amalgation is being
arranged between the Toronto Electric
Light company, the Canadian General
Electric company and the Toronto
Street Railway company.
THE FISHERY COMMISSION.
Ottawa,  March    9.—The    fishery
commission,   which   recently sat  in
AGAINST THE LABEL.
Montreal, March 9.—The city council some time ago passed a resolution
that all city printing should bear the
union label. The city attcruey yes-
tetday decided that the provision was
illegal.
A FISHING CLUB.
Rossland, March 9— Tha final steps
■ were taken last Saturday in the formation of tbe local   fishing   association,
j which has been styled Rossland Fish-
! ing Club. A meeting of persons interested took place at Abbott & Hart-
i McHarg's office, when matters referring to the club were closed up and
the following officers elected: President, Frederick Schofield; vice-president, John Boultbee; secretary-treasurer, J. L. G. Abbott; executive committee, officers of the club, with
Messrs. Frank A. Hewer and W. M.
Cunliffe.
MARCONI'S VISIT.
New York, March 9.—Mr. Marconi
will leave for Canada tomorrow to supervise tbe arrangement for a permanent wireless station at Cape Breton.
The inventor will confer with officials
of the Canadian government to obtain final assurances of their co-operation, and that the recent action of
the English postmaster general will
not affect his rights to use the system
on Canadian soil.
Mr. Marcoui will not remain in the
Dominion more than a fortnight,
thence returning to New York, on his
way to England, As soon as the apparatus is installed at Cape Breton he
will come back from England to conduct experiments.
THE IRISH PROBLEM.
London, March 9.—It is understood
that the cabinet council which was
called for Friday has been postponed
until next Tuesday, owing to the continued illnejs of Mr. A. J. Balfour, the
First Lord of the Treasury, and the
absence in Ireland of Earl Cadogau,
Lord Lieutenant of Ireland,
It appears to be generally expected
that the United Irish league will be
proscribed, although George Wynd-
ham, chief secretary for Ireland, is
averse to such a strong measure.
Mr Wyndbam, however,  is not in

BUSY BODY LOU.
Busy body Lou,
'Tis very sad to soy,
Has a spyglass to looli thru
Which she uses every day.
Should a neighbor chance to pass,
With a man to see her home,
Lou will rubber with ber glass -
Which makes a fellow foam.
For inquisitiveness aud gall,
Having nothing else to do-
Lou, she beats them all.
At an easy finish, too.
Instead of rubbering the neighbor
Lou should take a gentle hint.
And get out and honest labor;
We then conld praise her without stint
By a Victim.

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Re^ni trees.
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 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, forfS ing a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia * Western railway,
which was constructed by the Cana-
dian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of  Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victora * Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corooration, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paoifle railway company 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 Oanadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle (liver valley
there is an extent ")f 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 fruit aud
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
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time sinoe 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 plant
of the kind In America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautlble 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 Anally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.
