..THE EVENING SUN..
H. S. TURNER.
THURSDAY..FEBRUARY 6, 1902
The business office of The EveDing
Sun is located at present in Columbia,
where all conespondence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
By the census of last year the population of Canada was shown to be
5.369,666, an increase of 536,425 for
the decade. The representation in the
house of commons will be reduced
from 213 to 210 members, The Yukon
will be granted one member, tbe
Northwest two and Manitoba three,
making an increase of seven. Ontario
will loose six members and maritime
provinces four, making a loss of ten
members, which with a gain of seven
in the Dominion, is a net loss of three.
Just previous to the opening of parliament and local assembly, the 0. P.
R. is profuse w.th its statements in the
newspapers as to its proposed development work. A Victoria dispatch states
that the C.P.R. is completing arrangements fur the building of an extension ol its line from Midway to
Spence's Bridge, and has filed tbe
plans in the lands and works office.
Tne route is via Camp McKinney,
Fairview and a branch from the Okan-
ayaii v.illev to Pontictou. The main
line pa.-ses through ex-Governor
Dewdney's townsite. but gives tbe old
town 01 Princeton the tro by. The
road tfill lap the main line at
Spence's Bridge.
I Grand Forks agree to use all their
j influence to hastea the construction of
the proposed V., V. & E. station and
I smelter spurs as shown on the com-
1 pany's plans, and also the erection of
I the depat,
"And provided further, tbey agree
j to use every endeavor to have the bill
! pass the legislature in every other de-
j tail as presented."
It is proposed in this connection to
circulate a petition giving the tate-
payers an opportunity to sanction the
action of the council. The council
feared that objection to the adoption
of Grand Forks as the name of tbe
amalgamated city might result in the
defeat of the bill, and the further result of depriving Columbia of the proposed new railway facilities. II amalgamation be defeated tbe V.. V. & E.
,may not build into Columbia at all,
but locate its depor oh the main line
outside.
COLUMBIA OITY COUNCIL.
The city council of Columbia met
in adjourned session last night. The
timeol the session was wholly taken
up with the consideration of the appeal from the city council and board
of trade ol Grand Forks asking Co-
luinbia to give her consent to have
tho name Grand Forks substituted for
that ol Miner in the amalgamation
bill to be submitted to the local assembly for approval. The question
was discussed iu all its bearings iu an
open anil candid manner for nearly
t«o hours, when Alderman Disney
moved the following resolution, which
v. as seconded by Alderman Wasson :
"Whereas, it is the desire of maDy
citizens >1 Gri d Forks and Columbia
to retain the name of Grand Forks lor
the amalgamated city;
"And whereas, it is in the best int
eretU of the people of both cities to
have a peaceable and amicable consummation of tho Amalgamation of
Columbia and Grand Forks;
"Therefore be it resolved, That we,
the city council of the city of Columbia, recommend 10 the ratepayers and
citizens of Columbia to approve and
a-^ree to the name of Grand Forks for
the arnalga . ated city;
"Provided, This be shown to be the
desire of a majority of the people of
Grand Forks,

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Re^oi irces.
The City of Columbia is situated
near the junction of the Nortfc Forks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and Is distant uboiit 800
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, forrBing a charming combination of ptcturesquesness and grandeur
Tbe 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, 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 PaoiHe railway oom-
pany has larje interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year
ai'ound.'is the best in Canadn—part of
the slimmer is rather hot and dry, but
the ro9t of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent »jf fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, p9ars, 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 iu the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, ami 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 muoh to build up Columbia. Large,
mineral lode* have liBeu discovered'
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what ware mere prospects a short time sinoa 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 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 aud prosperity, Columbia will
be un educational oentre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholosale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will he
the best and largest city in the interior.
