BOARDS OF TRADE.
Kaslo, Feb. 27.—The fourth annual
convention of the Associated Boards
of Trade of British Columbia was
called to order yestereay evening by
Chairman C. Scott Galloway,of Greenwood. Credentials were preseuted by
delegates from Nelson, Kaslo. Ro s-
land, Moyie, Grand Forks, Cascade,
Trail, Greeaw.ood, Phoenix, Cran-
brook and Fernie. Revelsloke, Kam-
loops, Columbia aud Fort Steele were
not represented. The president in his
address referred to the great good
which muet result from the appointment of (senator Templeman to a seat
in the cabinet. He congratulated
those whose efforts had resulted in securing the granting of a bonus by the
Dominion government for the refining
of lead ores. His plea for "free trade"
in railroad construction was especially
strong, and he snggested the appointment of delegates to proceed to Victoria to impress upon the legislature
the necessity of removing any obstructions to railroad building by any persons or corporations willing to invest
their capital in opening new districts.
ti. O. Buchanan was auaniniously
eltcted president and II. W. C. Jackson was re-elected secretary.
RUMORS OF INTRIGUE.
Victoria, Feb. 27.—The air was full
of intrigue yesterday. The government is understood to be anxious (o
form a coalition with tbe Opposition,
but a caucus of the latter held last
evening is understood to have been
unfavorable to these advances. On
tbe other hand Mr. Martin has drafted
a redistribution bill, which be hat
submitted to the government and
asked that it be passed. It is stated
that the terms of this bill are not acceptable to some of the government's
immediate supporters, who are anxious to be relieved of the necessity of
supporting it. This bill will likely
provide tor the withdrawal af a member from Victoria, and another from
Esquimalt, and granting one to the
Boundary district, the total addition
to the present representation being
one, making a house of 39. Premier
Dunsmuir may resign, if the negotiations with the opposition fail, and ask
leave to appeal to the country, but it
is believed that il he did io, the governor would not grant leave, seeing
he has failed to fill the vacant portfolios. The opposition claim that they
• can form a strong government in such
event, as Mr. Dunsmuir's preseut supporters would rather support them
than Martin.
against the provisions of the prohibition referendum. Rev. Dr. MacKay
■aid the alliance wanted a fair referendum—that is, a majority of the
votes cast to decide and the vote to be
taken at tbe time of the municipal
elections. The alliance was against
the referendum. In reply, Premier
Ross defended the referendum. As to
the vote, the government had decided
that three out of every eight ou the
list must vote in favor ot prohibition
That was fair, and as far as the government would go. If the prohibi
tionists could not get that vote they
did not deserve to be successful. As
to the date the premier said that as
the Methodist conference would be in
session on October 14th, that date
would be abandoned. The vote could
be taken on the same date as the general provincial elections, but the government would see about taking the
vote on the date of tbe municipal
elections.
DINED WITH PRESS GANG.
New York, Feb. 26.—Prince Henry
of Prussia, dined tonight with 1,000
of the men who make the American
newspapers. He was the special
guest of Herman Ridder, proprietor of
the New York Staats Zeitung, who
gathered at his table a majority of
leading figures in American journalism. Tbey came from the four quarters ot the country, aud made the
most noteworthy gathering of their
profession ever assembled in the United States. There was a felicitous exchange of greetings between Prince
Henry and the men who spoke for the
journalistic craft, and the affair claims
rank as one of tbe notable iucideuts
of the American tour ot the German
prince. The dinner was given in the
handsome ball room of the Waldorf-
Ast.ria hotel, but that immense apartment was not large enough to accommodate the numerous guests, aud the
gallery was also used. The two rooms
were splendidly decorated. Mr. Ridder and the special guests sat at an
elevated tabla above which were the
American and German flags.

compelled to formulate its report
accordingly. This dors not seem just.
The real fact of the matter is, the

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1902
A thrilling bear story comes from
Vancouver. Two dead Indians and
t he stiff carca: s of a grizzly bear lying
together in the woods were found at
Kivrr's inlet the other day. Both Indians and grizzly had been mortally
wounded in a combat which must have
been terrific, as all around the corpses
were signs of the struggle tor life
made bv the two hunters. About 30
teet from the bodies lay an olds 1 ooth
lore, muzzle-loading rifle, and driven
to the hilt in the heart of the bear was
found a long hunting knife, while another similar weapon lay beside one of
lie Indians.

The Ottawa postal authorities desire
to know the weight of msil matter dispatched over the Canadian Pacific and Grand Trunk railways, as the
Inllowing order has been received by
»11 postmasters in the Boundary, and
we understand the order applies to the
entire Dominion:
"Sir—I am directed to request that
you will be good enough to have the
mails received at and dispatched from
\otir office via Grand Trunk or Canadian Pacific railway train, only,weighed for a period of thirty days, commencing on the 24th day of Februaty
and terminating on the 25th day of
March, 1902, both days inclusive. The

sucks in which the mails are sent and
received; also, all postoffice supplies,
registered boxrs and packages sent or
received. Sunday is to be included in
the specified number of days on which
mails are to be weighed, when mails
arc sent or received on that day."
The "Royal Commission" appointed
at Ottawa to report on the effect to this
province of Japanese and Chinese immigration, in its recent report, recommended that the per capita tar on the
hitter be raised to $300. With reference to the former the commission, at
last accounts, was still deliberating.
The supposition is the commission is
CITY SUNBEAMS
Last night Miss Phila Wells
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. h.
Wells, celebrated her birthday by en-'
tertaining about thirty of her young
friends at her home on King street.
A very enjoyable evening was spent
with games, music and refreshments.
The large number of gifts attested to
Miss Phila's popularity. Shortly before midnight the assembly broke up
with the singing of the national anthem, and all joined in wishing their
merry hostess many happy retur 11s of
the day.
Now that the city has a team it
needs a teamster, and the council is
now receiving applications for the
position. The successful applicant
will be required to sleep in the fire
hall, and be ready to respond with
the team to fire alarms night and day.
The lecture at the Methodist church
last night was well attended. J. H.
White, the Kootenay district organizer for the "Royal Templars of Temperance," gave a very interesting talk
in the interest of the order, at the
close of which 24 names were secured
as a nucleus for a council to be organized in this city. A committee was
appointed to solicit further signers,
which will report to a meeting to be
held on Mr. White's return here in
about two weeks..

Wes Fee and J, Hill met with a serious loss yesterday morning. It appears they were trying to catch their
horses on the bank of the river above
the smelter, when the latter bolted
onto tbe ice and fell through. There
were two of Wes Fee's and one of Jack
Hill's. .All three were drowned. This
makes a heavy loss to the voung men
as the animals were valuable ones.
A. U. Johnston, formerly of Inverness, Que., is in the city, having come

COLUMBIA. B. C.
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 Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the city for
beauty Is not excelled ill Amerieu. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffiing n charming combination of picturesuuesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has Its
station, freight warehouse aud yards
in the center   of   Columbia,   and  the
Vancouver, Vietora 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 Pacifie railway company has large interests in the eity,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages ns a
railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best In Cauadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is au extent «if 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 and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population*
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, aud brick lime aud 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 lodqs have been discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city 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 beautible environments, tho bright prospects for f uttir •
growth and prosperity, Columbia wil'
lie an educational centre, a eity of
homes at) .'oil as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allie I
and wedded to her sister sister, will b
the best and largest eity in trie interior.
