NOTES AND COMMENTS
King Edward's ideas and actions
with regard to public ceremonies and
court ethics are not calculated to make
him popular with his colonial subjects.
The trend of political ethics in most of
the dependencies is democratic, and |
in a few decidedly socialistic. Tbe
king's reversion to the vain pomp and
extreme formula of the past ages is
anything but in aecord with the democratic spirit of the age. The progressive inhabitants ot the colonies do no
take kiadly to taxation made necessary by needless pomp and bombastic
regal ostentation.
Hon. Job 11 A. M>cdonald, the son
of his illustrious father, than whom no
more popular and successful premier
ever guided the destinies of the Dominion, placed the politicians of Manitoba in vexatious ciecumstances when
he resigned the premiership of the
province. The platform on which he
he was elected promised the submis-
sio n to tbe people of the question as to
whether they desr.ed a prohibitory act
against the sale of intoxicating liquors
placed on the statute books. The
temperance people have not allowed
the matter to lag, the result being' that
a plebiscite will be taken soon on the
basis of a majority of 62 i-a percent of
all voting, to carry.
Mayor Clute's majority over Mc-
Kicban, the labor candidate, in the
Rossland municipal election, was only
62 out of a total vote of 848. This narrow majority should admonish the
new mayor that it would be extremely
unwise to ignore the labor element in
his executive capacity.
Fighting Joe Martin has come to the
surface again. To muddle tbiugs a
little more in the political maelstrom
at, Victoria, he now announces himself
as candidate for M. P. honors. If the
political manipulators of the Mecca of grafters have an iota of horse
sense they will assist in landing ]oe on
the Atlantic side. Premier Laurier,
with his Quebec majority, is having
things too much his own way.
An American syndicate is appeal
ing to congress tor privileges to build
an isthmus canal over a new route,
which is said to have been felly surveyed. It may be a bona fide proposition, or it may be a scheme of the
transcontinental railways to halt the
canal proposed is from the Gulf of
San Bias to the Pacific ocean behind
the Pearl islands and is called the
Mandigo route. It will be proposed that the company build the
work under the supervision and protection of the government without any
cost to the United States, which will
be asked to guarantee the bonds of the
company. The company will propose
that tbe government have tne use of
the canal tree of charge for government
vessels, and if at any time the company does not do us agreed, the government shall take possession of the canal.
With the exception of the Mayor,
the incoming city council of Phoenix
is all made up of new men.
The great event of the Northwestern
Curling Association's annual bonspiel
occurred Thursday last, when 11 Canadian rinks were pitted against an
equal number ot Americans for the
Walkerville international trophy. Tbe
Americans won by a total score of 171
to 148. The victorious American rinks |
will now play against each other for
the possession of the cup.
There seems to be little doubt but 1
that the V. V. & E. railway will be
continued to Phoenix, and on into the !
Sitnilkameen this year—to the lasting I
benefit of both. The C. P. R.'s lead J
pipe cinch on the business of tbe I
Boundar y is beginning to loosen a
little. —Pioneer.
No brilliant success in business is
on record where the value of newspaper advertising was not recognized
and employed with profit.

BR,DGE STREET.
"It shall not be opeoed." So say
the axe grinders, whe live on axe
grinding, and who tiever move save
to axe grind, and the axe they grind
is always their own.
A comparrison of the pros and
pons of the Bridge street affair are
indeed curio in public morals to the
man who looks on, and who really
has no axe to grind.
An honest statement of the reasons
why the axe grinder does not want u
good street opened ate:
1. Because this city is based absolutely 011 how much he can make out
of it.
2. Public spirit he <!- d when it
clashes with him.
3. Because he is a | in-head and
is engaged iu building a village, while
broad minded men are building a city.
4. Because he uwns more property on Winnipeg avenue than he can
afford to own.
5. Because he has forgotten that j
every ratepayer in Grand  Forks con-
tributes to the opening *t Winnipeg1
avenue.
6. Because  the opening of Bridge
stieet would be to the advantage of
nine tenths o( the city's business men i
who have invested their all on Bridge
street.
7. Because in his life of narrow-
Less he cannot see that the opening
of Bridge street will not only be no
detriment to Winnipeg avenue but a
decided advautage to it.
"   transportation.
2.    Because public works are not to
be undertaken at the dictation of any
I
I one or two of her citizens,
j    3.,   Because tiie growth of any city
-■•isficticious which is accomplished by
: favoring one  part of the community
j to the disadvantage of the other.
4. Because it is ip the interests of
ninty-nine one hundredths of the community,
5 Because it adds to the symmetry
and beauty of the city.
6. Because it can be done at one
tenth the cost now, that it could possibly be clone for a year or two hence.
7. Because within a year or two the
franchise of a street car belt-line on
both these streets and touching both
.stations will yield the city a handsome revenue.
While the locals did not win, the
showing they made was an agreeable
surprise to their supporters, and the
large crowd present indicates that
hockey, while unknown here like la-
cross, promises to be one of the popular sports. Another game will be
played Saturday.
Mitchell, Alouk, Ewing aud McArthur shone for Phoenix, while the local boys covered themselves with glory.   The teams were:
Phoenix: goal, Mitchell; point,
Lyons; cover, Stretzel; rover, McArthur; forwards, Ewing, Monk, Fulton; umpire, Flovd.
Grand Forks: goal, Cochrane,;
point, Jackson; cover, Grant; rovei,
Brown; forwards, McQueen, Baker,
Vahey; umpire, Fred Clark; Referee— Bonter, of Phoenix.

: are confident of annexing the chain-
j pionship this year.
The local team, while strong  individually,  had never  played  together'
i before, and some had never previously j
■ played the game at all, went into the
igame with the expectation of merely

o
Situation,    Environments    and    General
Resources.
The City of Columbia is situated
near the junction of the North Fork
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east from Vancouver.
The natnral situation of the city for
beauty is not excelled in America. A
verduie-claa1 and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling water, -fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination
of picturesqueness and grandeur.
The Columbia and Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouses and yards
. n  the centre of Colombia; and the
Vaucouver, Victoria and Eastern Railway company has located its depot
freight sheds and yards along the east
line ot the corporation, thus giving the
city connection with two great transcontinental lines.
The Canadian' Pacific Railway coa.-
pany 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 Canada—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 and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The vvlley 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, and brick/ lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained
when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and wiil
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 large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city bypump-
ing from a beautilul spring of exceptional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby's 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 beautiful environments, the bright prospect 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 city, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.
