THURSDAY, APRIL 24,1902
The Hot Air officials sent out a
walking delegate yesterday to find out
whether the V., V. & E. was working
along its line anywhere between Cascade and Carson. The delegate returned, reporting that work was being prosecuted at several points
as vigorously as ever. That the
V., V. & E. may build its line
across its own land it is claimed
the government has no right to deny.
It thisjudicial quibbling ou the part
of the courts does not soon cease, and
which it is believed is being inspired
by the Canadian Paeific, the citizens
of both Columbia and Grand Forks
will tnrn out en masse and complete
tbe line to Nelson. The whole thing
so far has been a judicial farce, to the
great detriment of .the people of the
Kettle River valley, the C. P. R. pro-
portiouately benefitting by it. The
-Victoria magnates should understand
that their Boundary and Similkameen
subjects are heating up under tbe collar, and if crowded too kfar something
will happen tbat will bring the government to its senses mighty quick.
It wouldn't look just right for this
province to have an insuirectiouon its
bauds during the coronation season.
J Porter [Bros. Want Bridge
Timbers for Immediate Use.
Beside the bridge 'across the West
Pork for the Columbia, simelter and
Phoenix branches of tbe V., V. & E.
the company is compelled to build
about 1300 feet of trestle from tbe
Dorth bank of the river to the bench
land Hear the Lewis place. The Porter Bros,, it is'understood, were conferring with Henry White who owns
the land in that vicinity regarding the
cutting of timbers for the bridge and
trestle work, which tbey say will be
commenced at once.
Night and day shifts are working
on theV,,V. & E. grade across the
Manly ranch, over fifty teams being
employed.
A Victoria special, received in this
city late yesterday, says that Eberts,
questioned in the house, said his con-
! nection with the V , V. & E. injunction was imposed on him by the
statute under which the injunction was
sought and was absolutely without
significance, and that ttiis explanation
was satisfactory co the Grand Porks
deputation now in Victoria.
The government is advertising for
tenders to carry the mails between
Grand Forks and Columbia and the
0. P. R. station, and between.the two
towns, from the first of July next.
The present contractor, E C. llenni-
ger, claims that his contract dees not
expire till a year from December 31st
next.
Mrs. Jennie Carter bas moved to the
North addition of Grand Forks, her
two sons being employed ut the smelter.

Austiu Wilson, of Fernie, arrived

The family of Thomas Duffy arrived
from Sandon today.
CITY SUNBEAMS
A dispatch was received from Victoria yesterday from Solicitor McNeil
stating that the attorney-general had
withdrawn his suit against the V., V.
& E., which is interpreted to mean
that the only difficulty now iu the
matter of right ot way is the Hot Air
injunction against crcssing its line by
the Columbia spur.   It is understood
i
that this matter will be taken up tomorrow in the Supreme court on application of the V„ V. & E. attorney.
If the decision is favorable, and the
bill which recently passed the railway
committee at Ottawa becomes law, tbe
V., V. &E. will be well out of the
woods. Special Solicitor Clement
went to the coast Tuesday, presama-
bly to be present at tomorrow's hearing.
The birthday party at the Methodist
church tonight promises to be an entertaining affair. Those whose gray
hairs and wriukles do not "give theji
away" need not disclose their exact
ages, so they may put as many cents
in the sack as they see fit. No doubt
the novel idea will run up a long list
ot "sweet sixteens" among tbe ladies.
Thos. Duffy, recently trom Saudon,
has purchased an entire block, two
acres, on Alexandria street between
Filth and Sixth streets, in Grand
Forks, and seeded down all but a half
acre of the land, and on the unseeded
portion of which he proposes to erect
a substantial residence,work on which
he will begin shortly. He says be has
come here to build himself a permanent home.

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 Ameriea. 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 a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western  railway,^-
which was constructed by  the Canar, I
dian Paciflo 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 Paoifle railway company has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on.account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway oentre,
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best iu 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 trnitand
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 whan 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 it supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
oity 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
oity,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible  environ-'
ments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
e an educational oentre, a city of
homes. <«s .well as a wholesale distrib-
utingftoint; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest oity in the interior.
