Bod well.
:
THE CHINESE COMMISSION.
Ottawa, Feb. 28.—The report of the
Chinese commission was tabled yes
terday. The Commission is unanimous in reporting that ihe capitation
tax of $100 is insufficient and that the
further immigration of Chinese laborers ought to be prohibited by increasing the tax to $500. The recommendation is made by two of the
commision that the tax should be
raised to $500 at once, while the third
suggests that $300 be imposed fcr two
years, pending the enactment of a
prohibitive treaty, failing which in
that time a tax of $500 be imposed.
( HANC Eii FOR BOERS.
London, Feb. 27.—The colonial secretary, Joseph Chamberlain, made an
interesting1 statement in the house of
commons today, to the effect that the
proclamation providing for the banishment ot the Boer leaders did not
preclude Lord Kitchener or Lord Mil-
ner ftom sccepting the surrender of
the Boer leaders on modified conditions. Lord Kitchener, on his own
authority, has already accepted the
surrender of some of the minor leaders on the understanding that the
provision of the banishment proclamation would not be enforced.
BOARDS OF TRADE.
Kaslo, Feb. 28.—The Associated
Boards ol Trade yesterday passed a
resolution that supreme court sittings
be held in Kaslo.
Tbe resolution was passed asking
that a resident postoffice inspector be
appointed, with a view to having the
mail service under control of an official who would have sou.e personal
knowledge ot the conditions ol Kootenay and Yale.
The question of amending the shop
regulations act in the matter of the
closing of stores on legal holidays was
laid over for six months.
A resolution was passed asking that
Ko sland riding be al once cut in two,
giving the Boundary district a representative of its own in the present
provincial bouse.
It was resolved that the Dominion
government be requested to adjust the
duties on lead products so that a home
market for Canadian lead sbould be
encouraged. President G O. Buchan
an, W. H. Aldridge and Jan.es Cronin
were appointed to go to Ottawa to
place this resolution before the government and the house.
A resolution was passed regarding
the bounty of $5 per ton on pig lead
produced in Canada, asking that the
Dominion government be requested to
modify its bounty for the first year so
that the full bounty, amounting to
$100,000, be disbursed, providing 15,-
000 tons of pig lead be produced during the first year. Should there be
less than 15,000 tons produced during
such year, then it is asked that the
rate al'owed during the first year
should be $7 per ton instead of $5, as
at present; provided furthermore, that
the bounty for each of the succeeding
years shall be at the rate of $5 per ton,,
but such bounty shall rot exceed i
$100,000 per year, as at present.
FOREIGN  MISSION BOARDS.
Toronto, Feb 27.— A conference of
secretaries of foreign missiou boards
of the United States and Canada passed a resolution yesterday deprecating
the legislation in both countries for
tbe exclusion of Chinese. The resolution described the agitation as uncalled for and in violation of tbe
golden rule. Rev. Dr. Wilbur Crafts
of Washington, secured endorsatton
for a very remarkable movement, to
obtain the prohibition ot the sale of
distilled liquors and opium to all aboriginal tribes of the world.
TBEllIRRELL lecture
The lecture last night delivered by
Martin Burrell, in a large storeroom
in the Folger black on Government
avenue was very well atterded. Mr.
Barrel I is a man of wide information,
high and ideal conceptions, a fluent
aud most attractive speaker, and
throughout his talk was listened to
with rapt attention. Mr. Burrell has
a humorous inclination, and though
pursuing a scientific cr abstract line
of thought, can inject enough of humor into his discourse to keep his
audience's attention firmly fixed on
the strong points brought out, and so
lofty are his premises, those seeking
closer communion with all that is
beautiful in nature—and all nature is
beautiful—are imperceptibly, almost,
led into her wonderful art gallery, and
into tbe profound depths of her ways
with most pleasing effect upon the
listener. We are sure all who heard
Mr. Burrell last night would like to
hear him again on the same subject,
and we are also sure his hearers were
inspired with determination to beautify their homes with lawns, trees and
flowers.
Attorney W. H. P. Clement occupied the cnair, Mr. I. A. Dinsmore
having called the meeting to order,
and placed that gentleman in nomination for the position, his election
was unanimous. At the close of the
lecture a vote of thanks was moved by
Mr. Chas. Hay in a few well-chosen
and hearty words, which was adopted by tbe audience.
Following this the meeting spent a
few moments in considering methods
of procedure by citizens in carrying
out in some measure the valuable advice oflered by Mr. Burrell.
A committee was appointed to in-

SATURDAY, MARCH I, 1902
It is reported that the Mother Lode
mine was compelled to shut down for
the want of coke and coal. This
would indicate tbe need of more railway facilities iu this section.
A Columbian now sojourning at Victoria, writes a friend iu this city as
follows, uuder date of Feb. 25 :
"After careful inquiry into the political situation here for three or four
days an.l watching the proceedings
yesterday and today I haye been firm
ly convinced that Joseph Martin holds
the balance of power. The Government aud the McBride opposition are
so equally divided that Joe, with his
few followers, can overthrow the Government dn au hour's notice, or bolster
and hold it together for a session.
Consequently, I should not be surprised if the Government, weak as it
is, lasts throughout tbe session,
especially if its action is in accord
with Mr. Martin's views.
"Yesterday the whole day was spent
in deciding whether Martin or McBride was entitled to tbe seat of honor
on the opposition side. Joe came out
one length ahead. The scene that
took place was one of deep affection
and long to be remembered. Curtis
aud Martin and McBride were hugging each other like newly married
couples. All of today was spent in trying tu find out who was to blame yesterday. They couldn't decide so adjourned till Monday, when some similar business of vast importance to the
country will probably be disposed of."
CITY SUNBEAMS

The city authorities of Grand Forks
having no other present recourse,
have been compelled to insist that the
Granby company carry out its contract to furnish lights for the c'ty for
tbe present, or until such time as the
city may be able to make other suitable arrangements.
Grand Forks Aldermen feel very
proud of the team they purchased the
other day. and well they may, for the
likes are not to be found in this vicinity. A new freight wagon has been
purchased, and Alderman Harvy has
assumed the role of Jehu and was doing the teaming today for the city.
Lumber is beiug hauled with which
to erect a stable for the horses iu the
rear of tbe fire hall.
At tbe Methodist church tomorrow

Betts' sermon will be "The Green
Tree and the Dry." In the evening
the subject of his discourse will be
"The Evidence of Prophecy," the
second of a series on Christian Evidence. '
Joe McDonald the well-known drayman, who has been putting in his
time the past six months in Seattle
and other coast cities, returned to
Grand Forks this week looking as
happy and natural as ever,
J. R. Hall of Bossburg, is paying his

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 enst of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the city for
beauty Is not excnlled 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, forffling a oharming combination of pieturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Cana-
dian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
In the center   of  Columbia,  and the
Voncouve r, Victora * 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 oom-
pany has large Interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
rnilway 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 on extent sif 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, 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 will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been 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 of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfeot 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 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 be
the best and largest city In the interior.
