It is said that Dunsmuir's two million dollar private railway snap has

cash and bonds.
A, F. MacNeill, K. C, of Rossland,
goes to Victoria tomorrow where he
has obtained a special sitting of the
full court to hear argument in the
matters at issue between the V., V. &
E. railway and the R. & G. F. line
people. The argument will be on appeal from the judgment of Walkeui,
J., granting the Yale H»tel company
and the Grand Forks & Kettle River
Railroad company an injunction restraining the V.. V. & E road Irom
crossing the lamls of the hotel company or the line of the R. & G. F.
road. The lull court does not ordina-
ria'ly sit until April, but as c l.struc-
tion is tied up on the V., V. & E until the injunction matter is settled, the
urgency of the question was sufficient
to bring about a special sitting on the
Supreme bench, Now we shall see

COLUMBIA, B. C.
Situation,    Environments    and     General
Re^ot irces*
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 ahout SOU
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the city for
heauty is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a riverof
bright, sparkling Water, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffiing 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, Victora A Eastern Bail-
way company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
lino of the {corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific 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 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 »>f fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits gr.TW
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 prooured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good r|imlity ciin always be obtained wlieu required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
(to much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere pros-
peots a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city by pumping from a beautiful spring of pxeep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and  converter
-the most modern ami perfect plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, tbe central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educntiouul centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point: aud when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in tbe interior.

San Francisco, March 17. — Bids
for the Jeffries-Fitzsiminons fight were
opened here Saturday.jund a number
of local clubs Rul.mitted offers. The
only outside club to put in a bid was
the Century club of Los Angeles. The
bids, with the exception of tbe Los
Angeles club, offered only a straight
percentage of the gross receipts. The
Los Angeles club submitted three
propositions: A purse ot 825,000 ; 75
per cent of the gross receipts, with a
guarantee of $20,000; and 75 per cent
of the receipts.
The local bids were as follows: National Athletic club, 82 per cent; Yo-
semite Athletic club, 66 2 3 per cent;
San Francisco, 70 per cent; Twentieth
Century, 80 per cent, Bay City, 62 1-2
per cent to the principals and 12 1-2
per cent to charity; Hayes Valley, 75
per cent.
Delaney, reprasenting Jeffries, announced that the different bids would
be considered by Jeffries and Fitzsim-
mons, and they would probably require some time o determine which
was the best offer.
