If present intentions are carried out,

A City of Beautiful Environments, Healthful
Climate and Bountiful Resources—Civic
Improvements, Including Electric Light
and Waterworks Systems, Are Well
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 Ililli miles eust of Vancouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date und modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are 'low under construction, und will be
completed in September. Tiie electric light syst in will include street nrc lamps. The waterworks system is planned
on a sufficiently large scale to meet ull present and future
needs, und insuring uitipie protection from the ravages of
fire. At present water is supplied the city by pumping from
a beautiful spring of  exceptional purity.
The iittturul situation of the city for beauty Is not excelled
in Ameriea. A verdure dud und flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, spnrkling Water,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pictiiresqiiesness und grandeur.
• The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Railwuy company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in tho center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the eust line
of the corporation, thus giving the oity connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway company bus lurge interests in the city, having selected the site ou aooount of the superior natural advantages us a rail way centre,
J*    .
The climate, taken all the year around, is the best in Canada—part of the summer is rather hot und dry, but the rest of
the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle Itiver valley there is an extent •• f
fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries uml ull the small
fruits grow abundantly. The valley surrounding Columbia,
divided into small fruit und vegetable farms, will sustain ,u
large population.
Building material ((.plentiful in the district. Lumber oan
be procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of good
quality can always he obtained when required,
The mining interests ureof the first importance to thin
country, and will do much to build up Columbia. Large mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the mountains
adjacent to the city, and what, were mere prospects a short
time since ure now large paving mines.
The (iruuby smelter nnd converter -.the most modern
mid 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
heaiitlble environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will be au educational
centre, a oity of homes, as [well as a wholesale distributing
point; and when finally allied and wedded to her slater city,
will be the  best and largest oity In the interior. *w

Iu reviewing the list of prominent
Canadian life insurance, companies,
the "Imperial" of Toronto stands out
prominently on account of its remarkably successful career. The board of
directors is composed of strong financiers and gentlemen of large experience in the insurance business. This
company has nothing but up-to-date
liberal policies to sell, aud the fact
that many large policies have been
issued by the Imperial, running as
high as $200,000 on one single life,
indicates the class of people who are
patrons of this company. Mr. J. A.

Paul Johnson, superintendent of the
Greenwood smelter, is expected to return from bis visit to the coast next
Monday. Coke is now coining into

Lode mine and the smelter about then.
It is reported that J. P. Flood, oi

involving the sale of valuable mining
property that has been bonded hy eastern men for $350,000, of which sum
$50 090 was to be paid cash down .
The lotce on the Princess Maud, at
Republic, has begun to raise ore. Thr
water was pumped out several days

that work shall progress as rapidly as

When replying to the address pre-
s-nted him by the Greenw-od board
ol trade, Hon. Col. Piior paid a merited compliment to two well known
Greenwood citizens. Alter expressing pleasure that an appreciative
reference had been made in the address to the zealous manner in which
the district, government agent, Wm.
G. McMynn, carried out his onorous
duties, the minister of mines said that
no matter how high an opinion residents had of Mr. McMynn, it was no
higher than that held by the government, who regarded him as au exemplary and efficient officer. Later
Col. Prior said he had had the privilege of a lengthy conversation with
George F. Dougherty, secretary of the
Miners' union, whom he found to be
an intelligent, fair minded, able man,
and one whose influence would, he
thought, be exercised against labor
strikes and in favor of settlement of
difficulties by arbitration or other reasonable methods.

John Thornton, familiarly known
in the Bouudary as "Old Jolly Jack,"
is applying to the provincial secretary
for admission to the Old Men's Home
at Kamloops, says the Midway Dispatch. He came to Boundary creek
in its placeriug days of the sixties,
and ever since has been known on
"the crik" as one of those who was
determined to "stay with her" as long
as he was able to The old man has
had an adventurous career, at one
time having served in Uncle Sam's
navy, in acknowledgement of which
service he has been for years in receipt of a small pension from tbe United States government. Many will
feel sincere regret at the passing out of
their ken of the familiar figure of the
old man, with his cheery view ol
things and bis fund of anecdotes of
the early days of the Boundary, but
it is best, now 'hat he is becoming increasingly feeble, that be leave his
lonely cabin and go where he can be
taken care of during the short period
ol life left to him now.
