... w
Re^oi irces.
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 city for
beauty Is not excelled in America. A
verdure -clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pieturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by 'the Cana-
di an Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of Columbia,  and the
Vancouve r, 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 Pacific railway company 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 Canadn—part of
the summer 1b 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 frnit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brlok lime and stone
of good quality oan always he obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
imporranoe to this oountry, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have bees 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 or 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, 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 he
the best and largest city in the Interior.
