FRIDAY, JULY 4, 1903
Word has just been received from
Vancouver tliat the injunction case restraining the V., V.&E. from crossing
the Hot Ail tracks below this city has
been postponed 'iota the 8' li to the
15th of tbe present month. These
postponements are occurring with altogether too much frequency, aud the
public, whose patience has been tested
almost tu the limit of endurance, are
entitled to some plausible explanation.
But none is forthcoming. It seems
like a travesty on justice that a little
forty-uiile loy railroad, which is at
present in a stale of "innocuousdesuetude," should be able to keep a trmis-
continental line out of a city for six
months. H'>w much longer the people
of Grand Forks will beafthis imposition time alone can tell.
It was- un'ortuiiate that tbe celebration visitors should leave town under
the impression that we baye no Hot
Air in Grand Forks.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
A special meeting of the Columbia
city council was held this afternoon,
Mavor McCallum presiding and all the
aldern en being pies^iit, lor the purpose of awarding contracts for the in-
stallation of a co i.plete electric lighting system. Six tenders were receiv-d
fnr furnish in ir loScedar poles lor the
system, and after careful examination
the contract was awarded to Mr. La-
grander, his hid being the lowest. Tbe
contract fur ins'ulling the complete
sy>tem, including arc lights in the
streets, was awarded to P. D. Mac-
donald. The whole system is to be
completed iu -epteui^er.
The services in the Hall, Columbia,
next Sunday will be held at tbe usual
hours, morning and evening. Tbe
morning subject will be "Tbe Christian Race;" tbat for the evening,
"Our Country and Its Prime Need."
Eugene V. Dehs addressed a large
audience at tbe Grand Forks hall
on Tuesday evening on politics and
government. But most people went
simply to bear Debs, and not to en
doise bis views, which are too radical
even for these swift times.
Engineer  Stoess  is preparing  the
plans and specifications of tbe Colum- j
bia waterworks system. The contracts
will be let in a week or ten days.
A a large crowd attended the dance
given by the Grand Forks Lacrosse

COLUMBIA. B. C.
Situation.   Environments   and    General
Re^oi irces.
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 309
miles east of Vanoouver.
The. natural situation of the oity for
beauty Is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie,'traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling water, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forlfling a charming combination of plcturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
whioh was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of Columbia, and the
Vanoouver, Vlctora 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 Pacifie railway oom-
gany has large interests in the city,
avlng seleoted the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre.
The climate, taken all the year
around,'Is the best in Oanadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there Is an extent »f fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunei, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small frnit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material Is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be prooured at
fair prices, and 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 much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the oity, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now iarge
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city by Dumping from a beautiful spring of Rexcep
tional purity, capable of mpplying a
city of 5U,(KK) inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect 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
e an educational oentre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when filially allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.

N YOUR PRINTING you don't went
to reflect old Ideas : you want it up-
to-date.   There  Is a certain  desire
for the antique, but It should be up-to-
now in execution.
Our printing reflects the
present times, with the
best ideas of the past.
