 British Columbia Canada Newspapers, 1894

This province is vast in its dominion, and is but sparsely settled, its area being nearly 400,000 square miles, and its population about 59,000, of which two-thirds are Indians. Victoria is the provincial Government seat. The chief industries of British Columbia are gold and silver mining and salmon canning. Its chief products are furs, lumber and oil. Much of the territory is mountainous, but some of the islands and the southwest portion of the mainland have considerable arable lands. At and near Nanaimo are situated some of the largest coal-mines on the Pacific Coast. The Canadian Pacific Railway, terminating at Vancouver, is doing much toward advancing the interests of this province.
