Last week Till Dhpatch published
some particulars of (he life nt John
Thornton (Jolly Jack) up lo the time
of his leaving the Kroner itiver for
Honndaty Creek,. It waa on September 4lh. 18f#, thai Jolly Jack flrst
reached Boundary Greek, having come
in through the Similkameen ennntry,
Thai fall there were number* of prospectors placering on the, Similkaineen
and the Tulameen rivers. Gold had
lieen found in the Similkameen Kiver
in small quantities by the Sappers and
miners engaged in locating the International Bnnmlary line, and their discovery attracted numbers to Ihe river.
It wns not until the spring of 1861
though, that Rock Oreek attracted
attention and drew the couple of ihon-
Hriml miners who ate stated to have
worked un it. in that year. Jolly Jack
mentions noiliing about gnld having
been found on Boundary creek when
he Hrsl camped on It. .ho it in likely
that no placering was bring done on
it then.
In 1800 the Columbia River drew
placer miners, and Jolly Jack was one
of the crowd. Hi- travelled down
Ketlle River from Boundary Creek,
and I hemic down the Columbia River
to Grand Rapids, as one part of it was
then called. He thinks there were 4110
nr 500 men placering on this river in
the early sixtie*. scattered along the
river for many miles. It. was customary to go down river in a boat, Hnd a
liar, prospect it, and if it seemed worth
while "go a rocking". Flour gold
could l>e found at almost any part of
the river for some distance down, and
therewere ninny liars found. One nf
lhe principal liars was the one known
as "Jolly Jack's", and the old man
.inserts that during two years he and
his partners took out from it gold to
ihe value nf*»,(W net. This bar, to
use the old man's own words, was "a
fine bar; easy work, no Ium Idem, no
lilting, only steady shovelling. I tike
a tine-gold bar and wouldn't change
one for a coarse gold bar any time; it
pays more regular." He says that he
had four partners and with them owned two bars, the second one "a low-wat-
er bar. good enough at one time for
$25.00 a day to each man." Among
his partners were men who had been
working with the Royal Engineers
under Col. Hawkins nn Ihe Boundary
survey, and these brought for the use
ot the partnership a number of things
that had been used on the survey,
Afterwards, when they decide to
divide up, they drew lots. Jolly got
the big bar, and lhe olhers, respectively, thc other bar, the boat, a chest
of carpenter's toolB, etc. At one lime
tbey bad at many as 14 men working
on Jolly Jack's bar, They paid while
men ai the rate of $5.00 a day and
Chinamen 48.00, This bar was situate
about 14 miles lielow what is known as
Marcus, Washington,
In 18(11 Jolly .lack went to Wild
Horse Creek, in Kast Kootenay
Said he "at Hrst the miners called it
Stud Horse Creek but Judge Haynes
thought that was not a nice name for
It so he called it Wild Horse Creek"
Jolly did not remain long on Wild
Horse, hut. he says he wan foolish nol
to go buck loi 1 when he heard that
bo many were doing well on it. The
gold was coarse, with sonii! good-siied
nuggets. Twn he heard of were each
aliout.'«! om. and one of these was
found by a Chinaman. (Notes—In
January 181X1 the B. 0, Mining Record
published tin iii-Ncle on the Fort
Steele Mlnirig Division written by T.
T. McVittie, C. E„ then secretary of
the Fort Steele Mining Association,
from which the following is taken:
"Ur Wild Horse Vt-eek, alsjut Hve
miles from Fort Steele, is Ihe old
Kootenay placer camp, °"t of whicli
millions of dollars in gold dust have
lieen taken. Two companies are at
present engaged in hydraulic mining, hesldes some . Chinamen. It
is a picturesque spot, with its undent
buildings, Chinese quarters; and old
grave yard i surrounded with piles nf
debris, bare' bedrock and high cut
banks, showing the immense amount
of work tlmt had lieen done in the
past, liming """ H"1-' ''"V wlu'"
gold could be got In plenty, just, for
the digK'»B'   Without doulil there is
still a large extent, of ground to lie
worked over, which will imv well for
the trouble." In No, 1 Bulletin issued
this year by the Government Bureau
of Provincial Information, the following reference Is made In this eamp:
" The rniiiniencemenl of mining operations in the East Kootenay dates from
1801, when discoveries of rich alluvial
gnld deposits were made on Wild
Horse Creek, which joins the Kootenay lllver at Fort Steele. It Is official
ly estimated that ordinary claims on
two miles of Ihis creek yielded from
f20. to 930. to the hand per day. and
that from 1804 to 1800 Ave thousand
persons were engaged in placer mining in Kast Kontenny. By the close of
1800 the locality was largely abandoned, except by Chinese; hut of late
years the old workings have beeu
operated hy hydraulic methods,")
Jolly Jack ulso had a turn al Find-
lay Creek, whieh joins lhe Kootenay
River a little south of lhe Source of
the Columbia ami near where the
Kootenay crosses the present dividing
line between the Windermere and
Fort Steele Mining Divisions. This
creek, however, couldn't be worked
easily; it was nearly all "crevleing,'
Where it could lie washed, near tbe
rim rock, It was very rich I hough.
Later he was on Ihe Perry Creek
diggings, also In East Kootenay.
Then he had a ferry on the Salmon
River, where he made some money nut
of crossing men on theirway innnd oul
of Kast Kootenay, Theie were many
Chinamen, and at nne time there was
a dis|iosition tn drive Ihem out, hut
Judge O'Reilly told the miners that
they must nnl abuse them, nnly use
any fair means to try to keep them
Whilst on the Little Salmon .lollv
had many a talk, sn he says, with Mr.
Dewduey. who was in charge of the
wnrk of making the Dewduey trail
through from Fort. Hop* to Rasl Kootenay. Said lolly "thattrail cost almut
915.001). Mr. Dewduey was a flue man
loo. Sometimes he would camp wilh
me and then we wnuld have long talks
together.". (ExGovemnr Dewdney
tells an interesting story «f his experiences iu connection wlih building that
trail. After the discovery of the Wild
Horse Creek digging*, he says, report*
of enormously rich dirt reached the
coast and a veritable stampede set in,
Goods and supplies were lakeii in from
ihe roast and Fort Colville, the latter
at the time an old Hncl«ons'liiy trad
ing post. The coast merchants became
clamorous for the huilding of a l rail
so lhat they might secure a fair share
f trade, so Governor Seymour sent
for Mr pewjney and entrusted to him
th* undertaking. He set about it at
once, hurrying to Fort Hope, where
he found several old tune-expired
Royal Engineers. Wilh the assist
ance of 18 Indians they packed their
supplies across the Hope mouniaius.
Near where Princeton is now Ihey
found J. F. Allison, then the only
white settler in the Similkameen,
and having arranged With him fnr saddle and park horses, started blazing
the I rail eastwards. Past what is nnw
known as Keremeos, thence to Osny.
oosLake, nn past Ehnlls. nnw Midway,
passing Rock Creek, then a deserted
camp except for a few Chinamen, past
Grand Prairie, now Grand Forks, and
then over the mountain* to the Col
umhia River, At. Fort 8heppard they
divided their forces, one parly biasing
a trail via the Pend Oreille and Salmon Rivers until they reached Kootenay Lake, where the others met them
after a trip up the Columbia and Kootenay past whal is now Nelson. Goat
Creek was struck and the trail continued via Moyle Lnke to Wild Horse
Creek. Win. Fertile who afterwards
discovered tbe Crow's Nest coal measures, was given charge nf Ihe wnrk of
making the trail west wards In Koot
enay Lake and olher patties were
placed on different, sections, and such
good progress was made that within
seven months of the time of leaving
Hope the trail was completed nnd
const merchants were sending in long
packtrains with supplies.) •
In 1807 Jolly Jack came in to Boundary Creek on his way to Hope and lhe
const. On the creek he found a party
of old Cariboo miners —George Hamilton, Bob Hamilton, Cottonwood Smith
Johnny Smit, Hnnk Kerns, Joe Kinill.
Frank Harvey and twn others whose
names he has forgotten, They all
went nver the trail together and on
reaching Hope bought a large northern
canoe in which to go down tho Fraser
to New Westminster, The captain of
the steamer Ihen plying nn the Fraser
heard of their having started iltid h«
left orders with his men to look out
for them ami if they saw them, take
them on hoard and give them a free
passage down, At New WestmiiMter
Ihey all got work, Jolly going down
on the Delta putting up hay, They
wintered in Victoria and in the spring
of 1880 Jolly relumed over the Hope
trail.   He spent thai yeurou Boundary
Creek, but did not innke anything, so
moved nn to the Pend Oreille where be
wintered. Then came some excite
ment over the Big Bend of the Colunihia, above what is now known ns Revelstoke, so In l he spring of 1800 he was
once more off, pulling up lhe Columbia

Rosa Sentenced to be Hanged.
Nkmk-n, II. C, Oct. 7,-At 'lit) tf
clock this morning the jury brought
in a verdict against Henry Rose for
thr murder nf John Cole. He wns
sentenced to he hanged at Nelson on
November 21 next.
The murder look place nenr Nakusp, B. (!., on June 4th la«t. Rose,
in company with Nelson Demars, an
nld prospector 78 years of age, and
Cole, started frnm Nakusp In a row-
boat for Rose's ranch, whieh Is situated a few miles Mow Nakusp. The
men Were all more or less under Ihe
influence nf liquor. Demars claims
Rose and Cole started to quarrel soon
afler leaving Nakusp, and the lake
lieing rough they, rowed ashore,
Rose and Cole continued their quarrel, and upon Demars remonstrating,
Rose turned on him and hit him nn
the head, knocking him unconscious.
When Demars rernveied his senses,
he saw Cole on his hands and knees
and Rose standing over him. Demars started to light a Are and Hose
came at him again, struck bim over
the face with a club, knocking out one
nf the nld man's eyes, and again rendered him insensible.
After this Rose wenl. to Nakusp and
I old the authorities thnt he had started away in a rownoat to lish, leaving
Cole nnd Demars ashore, aa they were
quart eling, but hearing cries he returned to shore ns quickly as possible, and
found Cole dead and Demars in very
had shape. He said Demars told him
"Two men came mil. of Ihe woods and
clubbed them and ran away,"
When the authorities arrived at the
scene of the murder, Ihey. found that
Cole's jaw had lieen broken with a
dub, wliieh was found near by. and
nther bruises were on the hack of the
head and neck, which must have caused almost inslantdeath.
At the ti ial, Rose's counsel endeavored to make it appear that Demars
committed the murder, but according
to the doctor's evidence, from lhe condition in which the old man was
found, it would have l-een a physical
impossibility for him to do il.
Cole was aboutSO years old, and had
the reputation of heing very quarrelsome when drinking.

will take steps to secure a new trial
for the prisoner. If this is denied he
will endeavor to have the penalty reduced so as to save Rose from the
hangman. Mr. Macdonald will more

the resumption of work on tbe Waterloo mine, uuder the management of
Denis Clark uf Spokane. Tbe mine is
lieing pumped out in anticipation of
the early arrival of Mr. Clark, when it
is slated development will lie proseeut

erly lieing closed down, former superintendent A. W. Boyd opened np s

had reverted to the clown and was
open tn is* local til by any one, and I
intend to hold it If I have to light for

proposed enlargement of the mill, predicted 12 months ago has never materialised, and while it is declared by
many in camp Ihal the mine Is capable of supplying double the number of
stamps, the' company's directors appear satisfied with whal Is lieing

Tenser, adjoining the Cariboo ground,
and claims to have tlie Cariboo vein,
is jubilant over Ihe discovery of UJ
feet of splendid looking and highly
mineralised quarts at the laiitoln nf a

a considerable sum during the winter
in fully determining the extent and
strike uf the vein, in following it lo

alao developing the Vernon claim, to
the east of the Fontenoy. In the
shaft down 80 feet, he has 4J feel, of

The Editor of the Boundary Creek
Times, in a late issue nf that Journal
remarks that it is difficult lo under
stand why Thk Dispatch should take
up so much space in denouncing tbe
failure of the government to complete
the West Pork mad. Our principal
aim was not to denounce' lhe government, but lo show that under Ihe present system of carrying on puhlic wot ks
it is quite possible through eslrava-
gance and blundering mismanagement
to expend more money than Is neces-
snry on important public works, and
yet fail to complete ihem. And since
the end of government, is the good of
those governed, it is high time for ihe
people tn examine a system that fails
to bring that end,
As is generally known, there are
Arts in force in British Columbia re
luting to the Incorporation nf Munici
paliiies. There aie provisions made
for two kinds of municipiitii ies; City or
town municipality, and Township or
district municipality. These may he
incorporated hy the Lieutenant. • Governor in Council upon receiving a petition fnr incorporation from the property owners, and upon various other
conditions heing complied with, In
the milling districts there are a mini
ber of town municipalities, but it wnuld
appear no district nr township municipalities; the latter lieing confined, we
think, to the more impuions agrirultii
rnl districts of the coast. The popular
tion of East and West Kootenay and
the southern part of Yale district is
said lo be about 50,000. Why tbe pen
pie outside of the towns have not
sought incotpotation perhaps cannot
be exactly determined; it is probable
however, that a majority of them are
interested in mieing directly and in
directly, und tbey do not take the same
interest in the affairs of government
as is taken in the more permanent ag<
rlcultural districts. The limits uf
municipalities may he extended or reduced, and, a part, of the electors of an
existing municipality, may, under certain conditions, withdraw from one
municipality and mite with another.
The boundaries are not permanent, A
great, change has taken place in South
ern British Coliiniliia, since the com
uiencement uf quarts mining a little
nver len years ago. It. may be that
our municipal legislation nnd system
of governnient generally is not up to
date, and does not meet the require
menls of tb'J changed conditions. In
the early days nf placer mining, when
a new discovery, was made it was nee
essary for the government to send a
person to act. as mining recorder, gnld
commissioner, constable and to per
form any other duties required of him
by the government in a new camp,
where enndftions were in an unsettled
slate. It may he neressarv to have
such an official in a populous common
Ity, where law and order are well established, but we have a suspicion
that something more is needed. For
the last four years, we have had a very
unstable government at Victoria, a lot
of ordinary men, some of them trying
to do the hest they could, hut with au
undue proportion of would be leaders,
fo man of commanding influence and
ability who could gather around him
a sufficient number of men to form a
strong governnient, has come to the
front, Tbis dearth of hniinsand strong
men Is very much to be regretted.
It has caused much loss to the province in very many ways. In 'he
meant hue, during this barren period
in nnr legislature, the coulry has
heen governed by the Civil servants,
who are practically in a large degree
responsible to no nne. They are sup
posed to be responsible to the heads of
the departments whn derive their
power from the legislature and people; hut what head of a department
has held office long enough to become
acquainted with the duties of his office even if he hod the ability, and the
inclination to do so? If any change
is to he made nnw or hereafter in our
mode of government, the initiative
must come from the people, it will not
cmnefrom government officials, who
are wedded quite naturally to the
present system. It is the custom for
our public men and orators lo boost, of
our free British institutions; we
have reason to he proud of nur Institutions hul we should take care that
they do not become a delusion, The
barons supposed that they had secured
a larger measure of freedom when they
forced King John to sign the Great
Charter, but John had no sooner sign-
ed iban he resolved to take away the
privllenes thereby granted, We will
Dot attempt to trace the struggle for
constitutional freedom through many
centuries, but we wish to call alten
tion to the kind nf govern ment -hey
had In Upper and Lower Canada and
the other province-, al i, the beginning of Queen Victoria's reign in 18117,
Heretsa quotation from a Canadian
history published in Toronto in 1809.
"The ineiiiliers of the government and
their friends joined together to secure
* themselves an the public offices,
were called the Family Com-
-.»•;'., (..in iiihi uonmii oi ice iiinaing
and also the administering of the law.
They had control of the revenue and
also of the Crown lands, and they
abused their power hy giving large
tract* to theii friends at low prices.'
Under ihe ConstItnilonal Act, the
assembly, which represented the people, was nol given control of the revenue. The Fxeciilive Council and the
Legislative Council were appointed,
nol, elected. The Executive Council
could unt be removed for wrong-doing.
These political abuses led to rebellion
in lhe Camillas in Nftf, and snyie of
those who took part in the rebellion
were put lo death and others banished.
When the news of this resistance to
the rule of an oligarchy reached ihe
British government, they sent mn
Lord Durham as governor-general
witb Instructions to inquire into lhe
causes uf the rel-ellinn. He made
a report to the British government
and in it be advised among other
things tbe granting of responsible
governiuenl and tbe introduction of
the municipal system of local self-government, We helieve lhat a municipal system of self government is one
thing that the province requires, and
thai our present laws relating to
municipal government are defective.
We wnuld advocate a system of
county government within Hxed lim
its, divided into townships, rather lhan
townships with movable meter and
tmunds, for the more pnp-ilo.is p irts
of tne province. The system nf local
self-government recommended hy
laird Durham was introduced into
Up|ier Canada in 1841. We do not
wish to he understood as thinking that
the political conditions of the Canada*
In 1837, and of British Columbia in 1902
are parallel) there is, however, in our
opinion, a similarity. When Lord
Durham came to Canada he found
that Iheaflairs of the people were lieing neglected on account of the snug
gleslietween Ihe popular and execu
live legislative branches of the legislature. He, doubtless, recommended
ihe introdtirtinn of municipal Insl iin
tion on account of this neglect. We
have had in Briiish Columbia, for
several years, a very unsatisfactory
government | a good deal of lime and
thought, that should have heen de
voted to useful legislation, has been
consumed in useless quarrels lietween
ineiiiliers and factions of our legi.la
tore. Therefore, if our representatives
fail to do tbeir legisai ive duties, let us
have as soon as possihle, a measure of
local self-government. Whnt the
British governnient aud Lord Durham
did for people In 1837. they will have
to do for themselves in 1902; In thhse
days, as stated ahove, the executive
and legislative councils were res|ions
ihle io tbe Crown, now they are sup
posed to be responsible to ihe people,
though the people of British Columbia
have responsible government to a
limited extent nnly. That, such a
state of affairs could exist in the Can-
ados In tbe early years of Queen Vic
loria's reign, is a very good reason,
why the people, not only nt British
Columbia, but of every other British
colony should constantly guard whatever freedom they possess.

that whether or not coking coal ia

"From Mr. Krnest Waterman, manager of tbe Vermillion Porks Mining
ft Development Company,, an Rngliah
oompany, I received considerable accurate data, regarding the operation
of his company's hore drilling. This
company bas two coal leases one for
312 acres, immediately adjoining the
townsite of Princeton and another for
M0 acres, The hore operations bave
peen conHed to tbe townsite, and two
holes have heen sank respectively 290
and aOBifeet, and a third is now heing
put down. On the Hrst, at a depth of
70 feet a seam 18 feet five and one half
incher fas passed through, as also
two nther seams four snd sli feet in
thickness. Below the larger seam
no other coal waa struck. In the second bole at a depth of 202 feet a Ave
foot team was pasted through. The
third hole at the time I left Princeton
was down 110 feel and in sandstone,
The snalysis of the sample of coal taken
from the second hole showed 47 per
cent carbon, and when one considers
tbat the coal is more nr lesa mlied
with the sandstone drillings the per
rentage is good. Sampling* of the
roal taken from the pit give as high as
Sl per cent carton. In (act it it a high
grade steam and domett ir coal.

regarding what .was encountered,

I obtained while mil authentic Hated
that the hore was sunk 823 feet. Certain it is that Mr. Sharp espretned
himself as pleased with the results
"The Osoyoos ft 8lmilkameen Coal

Hamilton and Tonkin now have the
lead on tbe Dayton claim near Camp
McKinney, cut la three different plau
along a dittanoe of ahoul UN feet. On
this cla|m which is situate on the dl
vide between tlm main Hock creek and
the snath fork ef that stream, free
gold can hs obtained hy panning lbe
oiJdbjedore cat in each of the deep
trenches or open cuts run across what
is now regarded as tbe course of the
vein. The Dayton was under bond to
several Greenwood men tome time
since, bat tbey did not proceed after
a « root shaft passed out ot the mineralised rock In which It had been
started. Since Ihen Hamilton mid
Ynnkin have done* bitof surface work,
chiefly In cutting deep trenches, and
now the showing hi to promising that
enquiries are Mug made with a view
u> getting an nption nn the claim,
which certalnl* appears to he well
worth spending a few thousand dollars
on to prove whether the generally gond
gold values that assays return can be
maintained when tha ore it treated io
bulk.  ',
There are other likely looking min
eral claims in the neighborhood of the
Dayton that may be eipected to attract attention Itelor* long. Among
these are the Night Hawk, owned bv
Bash and Luce i Jim Crow, owned by
0. K. Hamilton! I* Rol, owned by Jas,
Copeland | War Bagle, belonging to
Wm. Yonkln, and several others.
Two open ciiti show a big lead or dyke
of mineralised rock on the Night Hnwk
from which sssays ranging from SB to
$10 have lieen obtained. The rock Ik
mineralised throughout with white and
yellow Iron sulphides, and the cnpiier
■tains showing suggest the presence of
copper. A shaft sunk In this big hody
wnuld Iwiter determine the characiVr
and value of the ore. There Is copper
in the Jim (imw ore. also a Itlle silver
and gold. The Le Rol and War Ragle
have pyrrhotiie with values In gold,
silver and cupper.
snalt was sunk by the former owners
snd has at the bottom a four foot
ledge of high grade copper ore.
The Rainbow has Inng been considered one of the lieat. copper properties
In the camp, and a few weeks ago waa
sold to 8. 8. Calslian and others ot
Spokane, and it, under their direction
that the present work is being done.
A company was recently formed to
operate the property, and It Is reported here that when this contract is finished arrangements will have been
made for some very extemlve development.
The mine is located ahnilt three
miles north of Chesaw, near the international boundary, it is on the north
end of ;the famout Oopper Mountain
and near it are such well known properties as the Buckhorn, the Orant,
the King Salomon and the Kitchener,
which fact, together with the excellent showing already found on tbe
Rainbow itself, leads the local mining
men to Mleve that it is a property of
exceptional merit, and the owners are
pursuing >he proper methods to ascertain whether or not such is the case.
Fatal Accident at Victoria.
Victoria, Oct. 8-This afternoon In
the great, exhibition hy the pompier
ladder life saving team of 8pokaoe J.
F. Lylich was instantly killed, and E.
M. Hooper Injured. The two are
members of the Spokane Sre department, and were demonstrating the use
of the pompier ladder as a means of
prompt and safe exit from a several
stalled huilding. The exhibition took
place at the Brunswick hotel huilding
on Douglas street, under the suspires
of the Are chiefs convention, and the
accident consequently occurred in full
view of the large crowd that assembled
to witness it.
The two men had just concluded
their tests from the southerly windows
of the buildings, having descended
safely and quickly from the topmost
story, They were about to bring
their exhibition to a close, hut decided
to make one more descent. They consequently ascended several Stories,
going up with an ease and agility tbat.
created a favorable impression as to
the efficiency of the scaling ladder
on which they were operating. They
then commenced the descent. Everything progretsed satisfactorily until
the lowest story waa reached when
the awful tragedy ocritred which deprived one of ihem of his life. Hooper was inside lhe window for the pur*
pone of holding Lynch while he got on
th* ladder to descend to the ground.
Lynch stepped on It liefore Hooper
was firmly set-ured, and fell to the
pavement helow dragging Hooper,
who was fastened to him, nut. of the
window after him. Lynoh fell on the
back nf his head crushing his scull and
dying instantly. Hooper fell on him
and was not seriously injured.
