Western Provinces Could
Support Seventy-five
Million People.
The New York Tribune says  editorially:
"The Boston Transcript prints a dispatch from Minneapolis declaring that
at the present rate of emigration irom
the northwest to central and western
"Canada two million Americans will be
in the Domion at the end of twenty
years. While this would seem to be
an overstatement, there is no doubt
that a large number of Americans are
crossing the line, attracted partly by
the abounding richness of western
Canada and partly by the liberal inducements offered to immigrants by
the Canadian government. The prov.
vinces and tearitories of Manitoba,
Assiuiboia, Albertaand British Columbia, not to speak of Saskatchewan,
Athabasca and Yukon, could easily'
support a population of seventy-five
million ueople. The wheat fields of
Manitoba and Assiuiboia are already
famous, and they have as yet hardly
begun to be cultivated. There is uo
finer cattle ranges in the world than
in Alberta, while there is an apparently inexhaustible supply of minerals
and coal in British Columbia and Yu
kOD. Saskatchewan and Athabasca
are as yet unorganized, bat in spite of
their latitude their agricultural possibilities are known to be very great.
"Including the great districts of
Keewatiu and Mackenzie, the chief
industries oi which are hunting and
tJapping, this great empire of western
Canada has an area of 2,144,796 square
miles, with a population, according to
the census of 1901, of only 656,464,
oi whom 436,464 are in Manitoba aud
British Columbia. For years the Canadian government has been making
every possible effort to induce immigration to western Canada, but thus
with little success, as these figures
show. But the tide appears to be
turning at last. The well authenticated reports of the country's fertility
and mineral richness are bringing
many desirable settlers from Europe,
and,   what    at    first    seems'    most i
already crossed the line this spring.
Previously many Am ricans weHt to
the region about Edmonton, in Alberta, and they are all prosperous. It
is uot at all impossible that in a lew
years, therefore, this portion of Canada will be largely settled by Americans. As to whether they will remain
Americans there is a difference of
opinion. The thick-aud-thin American 'patriot' maintains on a priori
ground that they will. But those who
have talked with Americans who have
been settled for some time in western
Canada eeclare that, us a rule, they
think it belter to identify themselves
with the country of their adoption.
Ana as Americans like to see immigrants to this country do that, they
cannot blame Americans in Canada
for doing it. But iu any case, the influx ot a large number of Americans
in Canada is a most important and interesting fact."
PUBLIC OWNERSHIP
The People of Chicago Decide to Give It a
Trial.
The result of the municipal election
recently held iu the city of Chicago is
a remarkable indication of the direction the wind is blowing in the department ot political science. Muni-
cipal ownership won a great victory.
Iu the face of desperate opposition
from the traction companies aud gas
and electric lighting concerns, despite
the veiled hostility of the trust newspapers and party machines to the referendum movement, the "little ballot"
polled nearly two thirds of all the
votes cast by wards. Chicago's streets
•re save lo the people by a five-to-oue
majority, and Chicago has blazed the
way to municipal ownership for every
city in America.
Final returns from the precincts
gave a total vote on the question of
municipal ownership of approximately 150,000, a greater vote than any
ever before polled in a special election
in Chicago; 124,594 citizens voted to
take over the street railways as against
25,987, who were iu favor of leaving
tbem in the coutrol of the companies;
1124,190 ballots were cast for the muni-
curious, Americans have begun to I ciPal ownership of the gas and elec-

THURSDAY, APRIL io, 1902
Greenwood is going to celebrate the
the 24th ol May this \ear. It claims
that it has not only stood aside for its
sister towns for a number of years,
but that it has liberally patronized
their displays. Hence it deserves lo
be given the rij;ht of way this year.
A new use lias been found for the
house of lords, says the Toronto Globe.
The British opposition now use it, as
it were, as a training ground. Before
raising a debate in the commons on
some controversial point about the
war, a motion on the subject is made
in the lords, the government's position
is disclosed, and tl.e attack in the
commons is guided accordingly. Iu
this way the subject is also more constantly kept before the public. Sir
Mackenzie Bowell and his followers
might, by adopting similar methods,
console themselves lor their loss of
power in the Dominion senate.
Joseph Genelle Accused of
Burning Two Steamboats in Dawson.
Joseph Genelle, a well known sawmill man, is under arrest on a charge
of having burned two steamboats at
Dawson in order to collect the insurance on them. He fled from Dawson,
and was arrested in Rossland Saturday and turned over to Constable
Young of Nelfon, from whose custody
he was taken by an officer from Victoria, from which poiut he will probably he taken back to Dawson toptancl
trial.
Mr. Genelle was generally known
in the Boundary in his connection j
with the Yale-Columbia Lumber company, being associated with a brother,
the firm having mills at Rossland,
Robson, Cascade and other points.

REDISTRIBUTION PASSED
' Victoria, April 9.—There was another story session of the royal commission yesterday; Dunsmuir being on
the stand all the morning.

tablishment ot a refinery lor silver-
lead passed, Taylor and Green being
the princpal speakers. Prior said it
would cost $300,000, and the biggest
difficulty lay in securing a market.
Martin secured the passage in committee of the hospital bill, an amendment providing lor aid to all hospitals
which treated patieutd free and did
not make the denomination of a patient the test of entrance. The opposition voted with him, the government being in a minority. It was
Prentice's bill.

CITY SUNBEAMS
The report came irom Greenwood
yesterday to the effect that a crew of
20 Dagos, working ou the Mother
Lode smelter railway spur, had gone
out ou a strike for higher wages.
It is stated that Wm. Graham of the
Grand Forks brewery is about to undertake the enterprise of establishing
a bottling plant on ground near his
present location.
Public opinion insists today tbat the
Manly ranch which constitutes the
territory the V., V. & E- is prohibited
from passing through, has passed into
the  possession  of that company.
The physician attending Peter Pollock who suffered a biokeu leg last
Thursday while loading carwheels
at Eholt, found it necessary to amputate the injured limb.
Duncan Ross, who has been on the
coast during the past winter, expects
to return toGreei.wuod shortly, where
he formeily conducted the Boundary
Creek Times.
It is understood that ,C.'P. R. auditors are experting the books of the
Hot Air railway novices. Their presence and action is a matter' of much
conjecture. It is asserted that there
have been some very handsome rake-
offs in the purchasing and freght-
paylug depatments, and that some of
departed employes drew down large
stakes, but why C. P. It. officials are
sent out as tracers, is a troublesome
mystery lo the inquisitive,

Re^oi 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 oity for
beauty In not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolliug prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffling 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  ' oiumbiu,  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 oity connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifle railway com-
Eany has large interests in the city,
aving selected the site on account of
the superior natural alvantares 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 grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small frnlt and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large,
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and briok lime and stone
of good quality oan always be obtained when required.
The mining Interests are of the first
imporranoo 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 is supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, oapable of supplying a
oity 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 oentre, 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 oity in the interior.
