GRAND  FORKS, B.C. THE EVENING SUN..
H. S. TURNER.
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY i, 190a
The business office of Tbe Eveoing
Sun is located at present in Columbia,
where all correspondence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
Tbe settlement of tbe Le Roi strike,
after being in force for over seven
months, means a levival of good
times in the Rossland camp. During
its progress thousands of dollars, in
the shape of wages, have been lost by
the workingmen; the shareholders in
the mine have had their dividends
curtailed, and tbe merchants of the
town, whose prosperity is dependent
011 the steady employment of the wage
earners, have been seriously crippled
financially. The termination of tbe
strike, puts a brighter phase on the
labor situation ij that great camp.
The terms of settlement have not been
made public, but it is safe to predict
that the miners' anion has made substantial gains. At any rate, arragant
mine managers have been taught a
costly lesson.
Lately renewed interest bas been
aroused in wireless telegraphy by the
achievements of the system where
two ocean steamers, the Luconia uf t)i»
Cunard line and tbe Kaiser Wilhelm
der Grosse <,f the North German
Lloyd Company, talked with each
other through the Marconi apparatus
for nearly three days, many messages
were exchanged during this time at
varying distances, and some of the
German ships pass ngers sent messages for transin ssion to the wireless
station at the Lizard and thence to
persons in England. Marcooa himself cleared up many doubts in his re-
spouce to a toast at the dinner given
in his honor by the American Institute of Electrical Engineers. He
stated that the message received across
tbe Atlantic at New Poundlatid was
repeated three times at prearranged
times, and no doubts remain. Ihe
matter of increasing tbe power of the
apparatus is only a mechanical thing;
that it is possible to send many es-
eagesat once, and that the direction
and secrecy of messages is already accomplished by the turning of the instruments Truly this is an age of
wonders.   What next ?
Ry an invention which has just
Iiljii patented by Benson Bidwell ot
Chicago, and which was tested successfully for the first time at Muskegon, one is enabled to telephone from
an electric train, moving at full speed,
to another t.ain on the same line,
even if they are 40 or 50 miles apart.
It is also possible to hold a conversation from a moving car bstween stations with a person iu a private house
iu any city along the line ol the road.

mUes.eait of Vancouver.

The Columbia A Western  railway,
which was constructed by  the Cana-
dian Paolflo Hallway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of  Columbia,   and'the
Vancouver, Victor a A Bastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freijht sheds and yards along the east
line of t'19 corn tratlon, thus giving
the city oonu.otloiis with two transcontinental lines.. |
- The Canadian Pacific railway company has large interests in the city,
having seleoted the site o i account of
the superior natural a Ivantages as a
railway centre.
The climate, taken all the year
around,is the best'In Oa'uadrt--part of
the slimmer is rather hot and dry, but
the rost of the year is enjoyable.
Thnu jhotit the Kittle ttlvar valley
there is an extent «f fertile agricultural land, part of which is now lie-
in^ cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and ail- the" small fruits grow
abundantly. Tbe 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;        '    I
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do muoh to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have bee. discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short timi since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the eity by pumping from a beautiful spring of exceptional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind iu 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 eduoatlonat eentre, a oity of
homes, as.wellasa wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the Interior.
