horses is made both ways at Midway,
where Mr. Stanhope has a stable. The
stage line and running of regular
trains on the Great Northern to Republic make a big difference in traveling to and from the Boundary. It
saves 24 hours to sill points east and

inroads into the business of the C. P.

were lorced to wait to' make connection with the trains. ,

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 800 miles east of Vanoouver.
Jt
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will be
completed in September. The eleotrio light syst m will include street aro 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 oity for beauty la not excelled
In Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling water,
fringed with forest trees aud surrounded by mountains, forming 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 yards in the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Vlotora A Eastern Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the oity connections with two
transcontinental lines.
J*
The Canadian Pacific railway company has large Interests in the city, having selected the site on account of the superior natural advantages as a railway centre,
a*»
The climate, taken all the year around, is the best in Canada—part of the summer ia rather hot and dry, but the rest of
the year is enjoyable.
«tt
Throughout the Kettle River valley there Is an extent uf
fertile agricultural land, part of which 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.
Building material is plentiful in the distriot. Lumber oan
be procured at fair prloes, and brick lime and stone of good
quality oan 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 oity, aud 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 Ameriea—employing hundreds of men, Is contiguous to the oity.
Owing to the fine climate, the eentral situation, the
beautlble environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will be an eduoatlonal
centre, a oity of homes, as fwell as a wholesale distributing
point; and when finally allied and wedded to her sister eity,
will be the best and largest eity in the laterior. In the Matter of the Railway Act, and In the

IMPERIAL LIFE
In reviewing the list of prominent
Canadiat. life insurance companies,
the-"Impenal" 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 Fell, aud tbe fact
tbat many large policies have been
issued by the Imperial, running as
high as $200,000 ou one single life,
indicates the class of people who are
patrons of this company. Mr. J. A.
