' is now sleeping peacefully.
A. D. Morrison, the jeweler, has just
received a limited.number of coronation medals and seuvenir spoons,

COLUMBIA. B. G.
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 309
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, forlfilng a charming; combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yard9
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 Paoifle railway company has large interests in the oity,
having 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 Cauadn—part of
the summer is rather hot aud dry, but
the rost of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle Itiver valley
there is au extent *f fertile agricultural laud, 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 and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Iluilding material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured 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 muoh to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the: city, and what were mere pros-;
pects a short time since are now iarge
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city by pumping from a beautiful spring of fexcep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 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
oity,
, Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for futurr
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational oentre, a city of
homes- as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will b.
tha best and largest city in tha ia-
terior.

The "standing room only" sign was
not hung out at the Gentry Bros, show
last  night, but it  was   only   because
people are not allowed   to  stand   in
their big show tent, and so get in  the
way of others who have paid  for their
seats.   Ana it so happened that those
who came too   late could not get in,
■nd several hundred were turned away
Irom tbe tent door and missed a most
interesting and pleasant evening, and
all this despite the fact that iu  the
tired   seats   around  the ring there is
room for upwards of 3000   spectators. I
Prom   start   to   finish,  however, the
show itself was replete  with  features
at  once  interesting.and novel.    The
sixty-pony    pyramid   ac,   with    its
marchings  and   counter   marchings,
which opened the performance, was a
splendid   introduction   to    the   pony
world,   the  intelligent   little fellows,
part Welsh part Shetland, looking   so
ell   kept   and   cared lor, ami being
such'Splemlid specimens of their race,
making everyone teel at once that the
show was going to make good all  its
promises and would prove full of interest throughout.   And so it  was.— I
