H. S. TURNER.
FRIDAY, JAN. 31, 1902
The business office of The Evening
Sua is located at present in Columbia,
where all correspondence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
The population of the Dominion of
Canada increased only 500,000 in tea
years. This is about the rate of natural increase, combined with tbe
Chineie and Japanese immigration.
Tbe government of tbe Dominion has
no cause for pride over this showing.
Moreover, no greater ratio of increase
in tbe future may be looked for so
long as the Canadian Pacific boldt tbe
reins of government and plays the
dog in the manger. Tbe overruling
baud of that corporation is shown in
tbe fight against the Great Northern.
What is true of the Dominion and the
province, is true in a smaller sense of
Grand Forks and Columbia. The dog
in tbe manner in this city is the Republic & Gr nd Forks railway combination, the policy ot which is controlled by the great Canadian oinch—
tbe threat dog in the manger that will,
prevent all development except such
us will immediately pour profit into
its coffers and hold the populace subject to its exactions
pest house, and the faithful bride insisted on remaining at his side. When
the quarantine was about to be raised
in bis case, she came down with tbe
same dread disease, and be remains at
ber bedside to console and do deeds of
kindness.
There was a  hot time in  the U. S.!
senate Thursday over Philippine mat
ters.   The democrats, whose numeri- j
ica. quantity in congress  is so small I
the republicans look upon them more j
or less as interlopers in  national  at'-1
fairs, are   continually   crowding   the j
latter to name and define their island
policy and who, lilte our dear premier,
do not know what the policy is until
they bear the voice of the great trade
and  protection  generals proclaiming
it.   The senators bandied the lie and
numerons other epithencal  terms of
cowboydom indiscriminately. Tillman
of South Carolina was there with his
pitchfork, and though possessing  but
one eye, be sees all that is going on in
the  halls of  government,  and is   a
knocker from Knockerville.
The opposition of the U. S. navy
ring to Admiral Schley is having ihe
effect to make that brave soldier the
people's hero. That the maligned admiral has the highest esteem of tbe
masses is evidenced in eve.y direction.
Among the many unmistakable proofs
of this is the action of tbe Baltimore
connty taxpayers' convention, which
placed a ban on any text book that
does nol give Rear Admiral Schley
credit for Ihe naval victory at Satili—
argo.

Mr. G. A. MacLeod, principal of
the Columbia school, has received his
commission from Ottawa, as ub-cus-
toai's collector at the U. P. R. station,
and will take possession of the office
tomorrow. While we commiserate
with Mr. Hayward, who to us appears
to be a genial and courteous gentle
man, for the loss to him of his position, we congratulate Mr MacLeod
upon his succession to the same, and
believe him competent to fill it to the
full satisfaction  of the government.
B. A. McMordie, late principal of the
Grand Forks school, has been accepted as a substitute for Mr. MacLeod at
the Columbia school until the next
meeting of the Board of school trustees on Wednesday, the 12th of February.
A few days ago the Grauby company received three immense coils of

C. Tbe first cost in England was

which amounting to $230, showing
tariff and railways to be expensive
luxuries.
Evidently the Great Northern intends to give the Hot Air line a return
dose of injunction medicine. In the
injunction cases on trial in Republic
between the Great Northern and the
lojal road, the former is represented
by four attorneys, John L. Snapp,
Thomas A. Benton, and W. F. Millip-
en, of St. Paul, and W. C. Brown, of

Situation,   Environments   and    General
v
The City of Columbia 's 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, forffltng a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia & Western railway,
which was constructed by tho Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
statioh,freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of  Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victoria & 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 Pacifle railway oom-
pany has large interests in  the  city,!
having selected the site ori 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 is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent .jf fertile  agricul- .
tural land, part of which is now   being cultivated.
,A,pule3,.plum3, pBars, prunes, cherries' ind all, the small fruits, grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia..divided into small frnit and
vegetable farms; will sustain a large
population.
Ijuiltli'n'g material is plentiful in the'
district. Lumber can be prooured at
fair pricesi aiidbrick lime and stone
of good'quality pan always be obtained Avhen required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia., Large

Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future

be. an educational centre, a city of
