Boer meetings continue to be held,
chiefly   in   the  Transvaal, to receive
the leaders' explanations of the   British terms.   It is understood   that the

...... uu , tne  conterence  to   be at Ve-
reengiug, Transyaal Colouy, May 15,

will be represmted there. It is expected that a vote by ballot will be
trken at this conterence. It is reported tbat General De Wet has
frankly declared tbat the British terms
are reasonable, and tbat it 11 advisable to accept them, while General De-
hrey is said to be ready to abide by

The outlook for peace therefore  is
promising.

been erected on the site of the old one
which Mr. Betts labored to build in
1889, and who was the first pastor of
the society then worshiping in it. During ten months Irom the time he began the erection of this church be
also built the Mt. Pleasant church and
tbe Princess street parsonage. It may
be prophesied of Mr. Betts that if his
congregation continues to grow as
rapidly in tbe coming six mouths as it
has in the past six, it will devolve upon bis shoulders to either enlarge his
presed place of worship or pull it
down and build a greater one. All
honer to Brother Betts. And there
is another indomitable and indefatigable Christian laborer in this community worthy of unstinted commendation for his self-sacrificing labors in
behalf of Christian work in the person of Rev. R. W. Trotter of the First
Baptist church ol Columbia. We w'll
not allude to his labors and responsibilities irom the time of his location here, but during the past winter, it is said ol Mr. Trotter that by

a small salary as quarentine officer he
has paid off a church debt ol $500, besides attending to his regular pastoral
duties 1

COLUMBIA. B. C.
Situation,    Environments    and    General
Resources.
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, forming a charming combination of pieturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Paciflc Railway oompany, 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 Pacifle railway eora-
Eany has large interests in the city,
aving 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 summer is rather hot anil dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle Itiver valley
there is an extent »>f fertile agricultural land, part of whioh is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small frnit ana
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population. •'■ ■
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, anil brick lime anil stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do muoh to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent t6
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city 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 perfect plant
of the kind in Amerioa—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 on 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.

Your Local Paper
is a necessity to you, financially
and socially. A NEWSPAPER
of GENERAL CIRCULATION,
containing the latest news of the
world, is equally necessary to
you. The "up to date man" will
provide himself with these two
necessaries.
In THE TWICE-A-WEEK
SPOKESMAN-REVIEW will
be found the very latest news of
the world, its matter including information on politics, commerce,
agriculture, mining, literature, as
well as the local happenings in
the states of Montana, Oregon,
Idaho, Washington, and the province of British Columbia. In addition, its columns fcr women, its
popular science articles, its short
and continued stories, its "Answers to Correspondents," and
"Puzzle Problems" combine to
form a home newspaper that at
$1.00 per year can nowhere be
excelled.
Perhaps you have something to sell—a farm,
a team, farm machinery. You may wish to
buy something. The best possible way to communicate with people who wish to buy or sell
Is by Inserting a small advertisement In the
Spokesman-Review. The price Is-the same In
the dally and the Twlce-a-Week.
