A .City Of Beautiful Environments, Healthful

. Tiie nty of ''nliitnbla is situated near the junction of
the North ForK» .if the Kettle river with the main Kcvtle
river,  and is distant about 3J0 miles east of Vancouver.
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
Are. At present water is supplied the eity by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.    .
The natural situation of the oity for beauty l« not excelled
in Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling

fringed with forest trees aud surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur, i •■

The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway eompany, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards 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 eity connections with two
transcontinental lines. '■ i•."" ■
^-;'-■'■■-•
The Canadian Pacifie railway company has large 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 around, is the best in Canada—part of the summer is rather hot aud dry, but the rest of
the year is enjoyable. ,
*
Thrpughoiit the Kettle River valley there is an extent *.f
fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
j       J»
Apples, plums, pears, 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.       '
lluildlug material is plentiful in the district. Lumber can
he procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of good
duality can always he obtained when required.
The ml li Ing Interests ureof the first iinpor mice to this
country, and will do much to It it i lit 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 converter the most modern
and perfect plant of the kind in America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the hue climate, the central situation, the
bnaiitibln environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will be an educational
centre, a city of homes, as fwell as a wholesale distributing
point; aud when finally allied and wedded to her sister city,
will he the  best  and largest city in the interior. DOES YOUR WATCH    n SCHOOL BOARD MEETING
