TUESDAY, AUGUST I, 190a
Mayor   Holland,  having a
six mouths' course of study in the
injunction department of the law
school of that brilliant railway strategist, W. C. Morris, now threatens to
get out an injunction restraining Columbia from spending certain moneys.
It it presumed that the mayor want3
to keep in practice. But in tbe mean :
time the average Columbia citizen
slumbers peacefully at night, undisturbed by the bauutin^ spectre of
impotent threats.
Don Quixote Sheads bad a severe
fight with windmills at last Monday
night's council meeting. He was only
pacified on the assurance that if any
move was made on the part ot Columbia to steal Grand Porks, a telephone
message would be sent him at Franklin camp.    .
Editor McAdanis has tendered a
written apology to the full court,
which apology has been accepted, and
the jugdes have wired the minister of
justice commending his release. Mr.
McAdanis probably came to the conclusion that the county jail is a poor
place in which to prospect for pay-
streaks.
If we had a cotupulsiny arbitiation
'aw providing for the settlement of
lahor disputes, the present deplorable
condition, into which we been thrown
by the Michel strike, could not
exist. This subject should be taken
up in earnest. It is not right to make
the innocent suffer lor the misdeeds ol
tbe wicked.

COLUMBIA
A City of Beautiful Environments, Healthful
Climate and Bountiful Resources-Civic
Improvements, Including Electric Light
and Waterworks Systems, Are Well
Advanced.
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 Vanoouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will be
completed in September. The electric light syst m will include street arc lamps. The waterworks system is planned
on a sufficiently large scale to meet all present and future
needs, and insuring ample protection from the ravages of
fire. At present water is supplied the eity by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
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.
J.
The Columbia 4 Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo 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 liue
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines.
J*
The Canadian Pacifie railway company has large interests in the oity, having selected the site on account of the superior natural advantages as a railway oentre,
6.
The climate, taken all the year around, is the best in Canada—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 ef
fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated. <■
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, oherrles 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 iu the district. Lumber can
be. procured at fair prices, and brlok lime and stone of good
quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests areof the first importance to this
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 are now- large paying mines.
*\
The Granby smelter and oonverter—the most modern
and perfect plant of the kind in America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the oity.
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will be an educational
centre, a city of homes, as [well as a wholesale distributing
point; and when finally allied and wedded to her sister city,
will be the  best and largest oity In the Interior. DOES YOUR WATCH    i) By-Law No. 36 of 1902
