AFTER THE DUNSMUIR SCALP.
Victoria, March 6.—The government was strongly attacked in the
house yesterday on the terms of the
Canada Northern contract. Dennis
Murphy made a strong attack on it,
declaring it to be buncombe, which
was shown in having its terminus,
under the provisions, at Bute Inlet;
in   the   provision   for the car ferry to
nial problems is evidenced by Mr.
Broderick's new army remount scheme
which definitely includes Canada as a
permanent sonrce of supply for army
horses, and also by the fact attested
by the unpublibhed official statistics
that during the latter stages of the
war, the war office has purchased in
Canada 180,600 tons of hay, 9,600
tons of oats, 3,600 tons of flour, 50,000
serge suits, 8,875 sets of saddles and a
large quantity of other war materials.
Administrative preference for Canadian and Australian goods is now accepted as the   guiding principle in
the island, and to  make   connection
with Victoria only through an unbuilt j BritisQ spending departments,

Dunsmuir had stated he would not

Boss said the bill had been well received by the three parties interested,
the people who wanted prohibition at
any cost, those who wanted it on fair
te^rms, and those who objected to prohibition. He believed the bill could be
enforced. The basis of vote would be
that of the elecion of 1898 which was
456,976. One more than half of this
would carry prohibition. The vote on
the referendum would take place
early in November.

FRIDAY, MARCH 7, 1902
The demonstration in memoriam of
the completion and taking over of the
Republic & Grand Forks railway is to
be made more than an ordinary event.
It is planned that an excursion train
carrying the officers and promoters of
the line and their invited guests, including many people from eastern
provinces, will be run over the road
between this city and Republic. The
commttee appointed bv the Board of
Trade to take the management of the
proposed b tuque* in nan 1 wasi idraet-
ed to calculate on about 200 guests.
As it is understood that a ■umber of
capitalists and business men Irom the
east will participate in the celebration
much benefit will be derived from the
affair in th? way of advertising the
city and Boundary country, consequently our ci izens should encourage
the movement not only for a material
L.'netit, but as a deserved compliment
to the skill and energy of the local
promoters and managers, and do all in
their power t) aid in making the occasion a pleasant an,I memorab e one.
Bernard McEvoy, for.uerly of the
Mail anH. Empire, has registered the

Britain and the United States, and its
object will be to advertise there our
Canadian advantages. It will be
issued with the co-operation of one of
the foremost English publishing firms,
and with the countenance and support of the Ontario government.

Situation,    Environments   and    General
Re^oi irces.
Theinty 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 bv a river of
bright, sparkling waler, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, 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, Victora A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of tha corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines
The Canadian Pacific railway company has large interests in the oity,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railwav 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 *t 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 frnitand
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
distrlet. Lumber can be prooured at
fair prices, aud brick lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining Interests are of the first
importance to this oountry, and will
do muoh 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 since are now large
paying mines.
Water Is supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 90,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfeot plaut
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
oity,
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.
