Colorado common points to Rossland.
The change restores the old class

MONDAY, MARCH 3, 1902
According to tbe public accounts
laid before the Provincial Parliament
on its opening day. the expenditures
for tbe year ending June 30th last, exceeded the income, s-omethinp over
$800,000 or in the ratio of $.3 expended for every $2. received. That means
says tha Greenwood Times, that the
province with a population of say 200-
000 is expending about $4. more per
capita tban it is receiving. Tbis is
startling but with so much new country clam >ring for roads and trails and
bridge< may it not be wise to incur
this debt. Progressive communities
line progressive individuals uiav sometimes wisely mortgage the future. The
sorry feature about this expenditure
is, po far as British Columbia is concerned, that tbe road and trail funds
are too oiten divided up among the
political grafters and individuals who
have a string on some member of the
government, who get the $2, while
the country only receives the benefit
of $1. out of tbe sum total.
TO HON BETWEEN  GRAND  FORKS
AND RUSSELL WASH.
Though The Sun reporter could
find no one who would declare it to
be a tact from his own personal knowledge, yet the common belie! is that a
stage line is to be established between Grand Porks and Russell,
Wash., to run in connection with the
Washington & Northern, which will
have its rails laid into Russell by the
end of this week. It is said the Bell
brothers of Bossbur,' will undertake
tbis enterprise. That the stage line
will be established there is little doubt
and it is supposed the railway people
are encouraging the movement which,
if successful, will give Grand Porks
and the Boundary generally close
connection with Spokane. As soon
as the stage line is in operation, an effort should be made to have the
American mails come by that route
from Bossburg.

There appears to be much persistency in the report that the Great
Northern and its allied copper interests are not only seeking possession
ot the tlranby company properties,
but tbat they are also negotiating for
the B. C. and Dominion Copper companies' mines. These are days of
big deals.

Last winter when the famous London
printer and publisher Waterlow, was
in the Boundary, he took some snap
shot land views near Phoenix. In an
articl- in the Strand magazine, telling of the wonders of this region appears one of the kodak pictures taken
by Mr. Waterlow. On one of tbe
large trees appearing in the picture
is a sign which reads as follows: "You
are dead a long time, but while you
live you should buy your furniture of
J. W. Jones, Grand Farks." For re
iating this incident we shall only
charge Mr. Jones $5 00, though an
ad. in The Evening Suu will do him
more good than if it was printed in
the London magazine.

The citizens of Columbia were startled Saturday night by learning that
there were two well-developed cases
of small pox in tbeir midst. The patients are Elmer Rice and Will Webber, at the home of Mrs. Jennie Carter
It seems that Dan Webber was exposed at the time a man from a rait-
way camp near Cascade was taken off
the tram here, and where young Webber had also been employed. On his
lelnru here he was sent lo a cabin ou
the outskirts of town to sleep, and it
is believed be bad the disease iu a
mild form. Dr. Kingston, on discov-
ing condition of affairs, had the boys
taken to the pest house, and the Carter house quarantined and fumigated.
The cases were well advanced.

Situation,    Environments    and     General
Resources.
The City of Columbia Is situated
near the junction of the North Porks
of the Kettle river with the main Ket-
tle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the city for
beauty Is not excelled in America. A
verdure clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed bv a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed Ijy the Cann-
dian 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 the corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifle railway company has large interests in the city,
having seleoted 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 of fertile agricultural land, part of which Is now being cultivated.]
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries aud all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small frnit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Kiiililiug material Is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of gooil 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 city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now iarge
paying mines.
Water ig supplied the oity 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 plaut
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.
