Situation,    Environments    and    General
Resources.
Tho City of Columbia 's situated
near the junction of the Nortfc 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, truversed by a river of
bright, sparkling wuier, fringed with
forest trees and surroifnded by mountains, forffiiiig u charming combination of pioturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia & Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, 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 otty connections with two transcontinental Hues.
The Canadian Pacific railway company has large interests iu 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 slimmer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent of fertile agricultural land, purt 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.
Huilding material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can he procured at
fair prices, anil brick lime and stone
of good duality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, aud will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have be«» discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now iarge
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city by pumping from a beautiful spring of exceptional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 5(1,0011 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfeot plaut
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 eentre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will lie
the best and largest city in the interior.
