Among the passengers on the .outgoing twin on September 29 was one
of the early pioneers of Boundary
Creek, John Thornton,   known for
prohahly nearly half a  century hi
"Jolly Jack," and who 43 years ago
paid his first visit I o this creek.   The
old man has so long lieen a Jauinigr
figure in the district thatitM^K
gepuine regret those who have known
him for years now see his Old cabin
vacant, hut    with   his   health and
strength failing, and lacking some of
the comfort* necessary to prolong bis
life, the desirability  of placing  bim
wliere he will lie cared for has lieen
recognized and his admission to the
Old Men's Home at Kamloops arranged
for by the Pioneers Association of the
Boundary dislrict,
It, is not easy tn tell the tale of such
j a life briefly.   Nor could all that would
I lie interesting, whether of ever changing fortunes, of adventures, of varied
experiences and comradeships, or bf
the numberless incidents and vicissi
tudes filling more  than three score
years, of, for the uiostpait, wanderings
hithei andtl-ither as chance circumstances mid inducements prompted, he
learned during the nil too short uppur
tuniiies afforded liy two or three talks
of himself and his doings had with the
old man  by the writer.    However,
since I here aie still many left in the
district nnd province wlm will likely
he   glad    to   read something, even
though it he fragmentary of the life of
'•Old Jolly," the endeavor will now lie
made to relate in as connected a manner as can be under conditions some
what unfavorable what he recently
narrated when asked to tell his story.
And if at tunes the statement* here
made should appear to lie at variance
with known fad s, it must, lie reiiiem*
liereil that these are set down as given
—they are not vouched for.  Of course
it is tn he expected that now and again
the nld man's memory will Iw found
at fault, but  it may be noted with
interest tbat several quotations that
will he made from other accounts of
some of the incidents mentioned by
him in the main confirm Jolly Jacks'
John Thornton was born at Stockton
nn the river Tees, county of Durham,
England, on June 11, 1825. In 1KB,
sixty four years ago, he left his home
to go as an apprentice on a collier,
and lo become a "Hem-die," as those
who followed this vocation were then
and there called.   During six years he
make nne in the States, 'hut, hy G—!
they can make good guns now,"
(In Dr. Alexander Johnson's "His
tnrjr of the United States" the following passages occur: "The screw propeller, to take the place nf side wheels
in ocean steamers, was introduced by
John Ericsson in lSW The
screw propeller had now—1814--bei'ii
introduced Into the United States
navy, and the sailing vessels of the
past were no longer built. The first
of these steam war vessels, the Prince,
ton, was the scene of a terrible accident, during a pleasure trip on the
Potomac in 1814, One of the large
guns burst when it was fired a third
time, and killed two ineiiiliers of the
Cabinet, a commodore nf the navy,
and a number nf other persons. Many
other persons had narrow escapes.")
After two years in the navy Jolly
Jack was discharged and for a while
^ie w«_ once more in the. merchant set'*
vice, hut nnly for a short time, for in
ifMfl at Boston he joined the Independ-
'   frigato,   Commodore Shnehrink.
ent  ...„.._.,   ._	
Prom Boston he went in California,
for the Mexican war was in progress,
hut hy the time he reached San Francisco the stars and stripes had already
been hoisted.   Said he : "There was
very little lighting for ihe navy there
There was quite a fleet at. San Francisco,  wliieh (the   Spaniards   called
'Yabha Bono' which meant beautiful
herbs.  There was the sloop of war
Portsmouth; the battle sbipColumbils,
Commodore   Biddle, jm-t come from
India -, sloop of war Siam, Capt. Montgomery, and Stockton, who was now
a commodore, had a frigaie there as
well.   The  American  flag was also
hoisted at Monterey, San Pedro and
San Di-'gn,   While  we  were at San
Francisco the Briiish Pacific squadron
came down  to take California  hut
they found it already taken.  That reminded me nf a story 1 had heard before, of a lol of Britishers sent, nut
once before   to lake California, bin
they went back without doing it, because, as they said 'the blawsted salmon wouldn't bite, wouldn't take a
Invalided, Jolly Jack   went hack
round the Horn to New York in the
frigate Savannah.   But once again be
shipped and this time was drafted into
the southern coast survey net-vice, surveying with pole Hnd lead from Pens.,
cola, Florida, to Texas.    Aft?r nine
months all hands were discharged nt
Fernanda.   They got a tow boat lo
take them tn New Orleans where Jolly
shipped on Ihe packet. Robert Burton
for Phidelphia.  There he once more
shipped in tbe navy, wai drafted to
the receiving ship Phidelphia at Nor
folk, and then to the frigate Hareton
to cruise during the winter between
tbe cape* Delaware and Chesapeake,
on the lookout for distressed vessels.
Thence to New York, where he was
At. New York he shipped on hoard
tbe 10 ton brig Meteor, Capt. "Bully"
Smith, to go round the Horn. This
brig, having been built for use as a
slaver, waa a very fast craft. When
she reached Valpariso, Chile, her
owner tried to sell her to the Chilian
excitement broke oni. Men from all
parts of the country flocked tn California : they went by steamer to the
Isthmus nf Panama, ciossed il and
sailed up the coast to San Francisco ;
they bought sailing vessels and wenl
around Cape Horn; they travelled
overland across the plains. The fever
was not confined to the United States,
but spread to Europe. Within two
years there were 100,000 persons in
California, and San Francisco was a
rapidly growing city of 20,000 inhabitants,)
In 1858 Ihe Fraser River excitement
broke nut.   Said Jolly ; "Loll of us
paid our passage money to Victoria.
B. C.    From - there we crossed the
straits lo the Fraser river auy way we
could—in boats, dug-outs, or even oil a
few hoards fastened together.   There
must have heen a good many lives Inst
among those who were in a hurry to
get to the digging,"   A writer in tbe
B. C. Mining Record in December of
1805 thus referred to the Fraser rush :
"It is an old story now of how people
from Sun Francisco poured into Vic
loria try thousands and set up their
tenis; of how  they   lushed  up the
FriiHer river, often crossing the Gulf
of Georgia in open hosts ; how otheis
came up the tableland of the interior;
how they crossed the Isthmus of Panama, or rounded the cape; how they
entered from  Whatcom,  or plodded
wearily overland from East ern Canada.
Victoria became a city in a day, and
the mainland solitude was converted
into a crown colony in a year.  The
vicissitudes and hardships of the eager
throng as they pushed  their way up
the turbulent Fraser with facilities for
transport limited t provisions dear as
gold itself; an   unknown   region to
penetrate, and each a stranger among
a strange crowd of advent urers, constitute a chapter of history in  themselves."
Jolly Jack's stay nn the Fraser was
not a very lengthy one, for in the fall
of the following year he came, as already mentioned, to Boundary Creek.
Of his after experiences something
will he told next week.
New Machinery for  Knoh Hill and
OM IroniMe*.
The new machinery house in which
the large electrically driven compress
or plant the Granby Company is put

since.  Tbi* building is placed far en
oiigh away from lhe nre quarries to lie
out ot reach of most of the rock* scat
tered around when blasting.  The two
tandem duplex compound  Rand air

crusher is the largest of ils kind yet

The open workings at  the (iranby
mines are assuming large |,iu* nrtiuiis.
The quarries now extend  niirih and
south almut  1.HW)   feet over all, and
have a widlh varying fiom  ahmn  50

thus uncovered.   Woik iu the main

usual manner.   To facilitate sending
mil ore more large openings have been
made from the Knoh Hill main tunnel
up tn the quarries, giving in all twelve
of these big chutes for sending down
theme.   No.2 tunnel, part of whicli
was forn,erly the HiO foot level of the
Knob Hill, starting from ul out the
centre of the Old Imnsides claim, now
runs about l.MX) feet into the hill.   At
that distance in it connects I y a 100*
fl. winze with  the  Knob  Hill  main
lunnel  which continues south about
1,000 feet further, so thai  practically
theie is ii continuous working, in oie
all tbe vay, fur a disim.ee of nearly
2,0110  feel.   From  lhe  Hour of No.2

feet vertical.   With un ore body being
worked tn ihis depth   and  having a
widlh of 300to 400 feel and u pi-m.-d
length of nearly 2.51,0 feet it is quite
evident that, even wilh i lie daily output of 6.000 inns which the new plant
is designed to pro- ide power for, ihere

a consequent   enormous production.
This leaves entirely nut of in count the

In 1818 news came to Valpariso of

the   consequent   great   excitement.
Jolly Jack at. once joined the Scotch

sailed for San Francisco, which upon
arrival he found to lie a canvas cit v

Elsewhere in this issue we publish a
letter from W. A. Galliher, metnt-erfor
the Yale-barihon district, it, which he
states lhat he is desirous of meeting
the mine owner* for the purpose of
discussing the subject nf encouraging
silver lead milling lit the province. It
is io be hoped the mine owners will
take advantage of ll.e opportunity of
meeting Mr. Galliher and discussing
with him this quesi ion so that he will
Iw in a position lo place ilie matter liefore the Dominion government in a
manner that will he satisfactory to all
those interested.
Last we showed that ll Urge amount
of public money had been wasted in
an attempt to build a i-o.nl up the West
Fork of Kettle river, Ii. is certainly
within the mark to put this amount
together with tlie additional sum
neci'ssarv to complete the road and
the loss to the provincial treasury by
arresting the development of Ihe important mining camps at $20,000 j ihis
covers a period of ahout four years, or
since the overthrow of the Turner
government. This is only a very
small section of a very larf*e province,
and we will suppose that successive
governments have uiid"riiiken similar
works in 2(k» different parts of the
province ; that no public money has
heen wasted in 75 per cent of them,
hut results similar lo those on the
West Fork of Keitle river happened
in 21 percent of tbem, It would mean
that §1.000,000 of public moneys have
been wasted, or perhaps it would lie
more correct to say that the provincial
treasury is short that amount. We
have not heard from all parts of the
province, where public works have
been carried on, hut reliable information received ttoiii several parts seems
to indicatit lhat conditions, similar to
those on the West Fork of Kettle
river, bave prevailed. Is it any wonder lhat the governnient are taxing
everything in sight'/ lhat they are
continually borrowing money f that
they are clamoring for better terms
from the Dominion government? The
lot of those living beyond the hounds
of municipalities, so far as governnient
is concerned, is nnl a pleasant nne.
There is no self governnient; during
an election campaign some individual
from the ranch, the sawmill, or the
law office comes around soliciting
votes, he is, perhaps, elected, and is a
member of the successful political
party. In the new government he becomes a Minister of the Crown, the
head of an important department of
the government. Lines he take off his
coat and say to himself "I will over
haul this department frnm top to
bottom, no matter how much lalsir it
costs uie?" No, he does nothing of
the kind. He leaves lhe work to his
deputy and the other officials through
out tbe province, who are in most
i .uses, fossilized beyond all hope of
cure, and have a life-tenure of office,
Tbe Honorable Chief of the department, lately from the people, clothed
ln new raiment, seduced hy the social
atmosphere of Victoria, beneath the
dome of the million dollar parliament
buildings loses his head, and imagine!
he ii a statesman, but it is perhaps, in
fact the commonest kind of mediocrity
.in the guise of statesmanship. Instead of mastering the details of his
department, he spends his time in negotiating with railroad magnates,
whereby the government undertakes
to give away a few hundred thousand
square miles of Ihe puhlic domain, and
a large cash bonus to aid in the construction of a transcontinental railroad
with a terminus ut Victoria, in Ibe
meantime some civil servant may he

Grand  Forks, f;. C, Oct. l.~ A
private dispatch received today from
Toronto, Ont., conveyed the announcement that. Tracy W. Holland,
general manager of the Ki-ttle Valley
Lin--s, had tendered bis resignation
and had disposed nt his imeresi in the
enterprise. The resignation has already taken effect. Mr. Holland is
now on his way jveit, bat his future
plans are unknown. Mr. Holland will
pmpahly serve out his term as mayor
of Grand Forks.
W. A, Stralton, a Toronto attorney,
has heen here for some time past on
business in connection with ihe railway company. Mr. Stralton is a
brother of Hon. J. K. Stralton, provincial secretary of the Ontario provincial government, and who with
olher eastern capitalists are interested
in the enterprise. Asked respecting
the report of Mr.Hnlland'i resignaiion.
he replied : "Yes I understand Mr-
Holland has resigned, hut have not
received any further inforinatioii from
the east."
The resignation of Holland as general manager of the road is the latest
development in an enterprise which
has been marked with more sensational features and bas given as Utile return on Ihe money invested as any
scheme carried out in the northwest
for many a mouth. The '-Hot Air
Line,"as tbe load has come to l-e
called, represents an investment of
over $1,000,000, which Ontario men put.
into Ihe scheme for building a railway
from Republic, Wash., lo Grand
Forks, B. C, The road has cost far
more than was ever expected, and it
has done practically no business at all.
The formal opening took place ahoul
Ave months ago. Since then the road
has carried somewhat more than 500
toii6 nf ore, tor which it is supposed ti
get a revenue of $1 a ton. It gave up
all idea of runinng passenger trains long
ago, and now it is not even running
freight trains. Tbe cars and the en
gines are lying idle in the yards, un
til such a time as shipements com
meiice out. of Republic, when the
officials of the road expect to get a
portion of tbe husiness.

One of Life's Pleasures.
There is nothing in life more enjoyable and at the same time so bene
Hcial to Imth mind and hody, aa traveling.
A modern railway journey, intelligently taken, lends to prolong life,
break the monotony of existence and
acts as a panacea for dull care, by
taking us out of the well worn channels of worldly and business struggles.
Before stalling upon a trip, whether
on business or recreation, it is well to
inquire and investigate the various
routes, and choose the one offering the
hest inducements in the way of comfort and attraction. The traveler, the
tourist or business man' is wise in
selecting the Rio Grande Lines in a
journey to and from the east, as it
offers every comfort and modern convenience to mil all classes of travel,
with an array of scenic attractions unsurpassed in the world. Castle Gate,
The Canon of Ihe Grand, Marshall
Pass, Tennessee Pass and the world
renowned Royal Gorge are but few of
these attraction! seen from the car

of the development work of the Bodie

nf the mine and values nf the oie to a
representative of the Independent
American he said :
"The late development nf the Bodie
mine has In en to open the ledge lower
dnwn lhe mountain. Tunnel No. 2 cut,
the ledge about 130 feet from the surface, south of tunnel Nn. 1.
"The drift from tunnel No. 2 on the
ledge is more than lOOfeettb the north
and is nuw under tunnel No, 1. The
upraise frnm this drift will connect
with the drift on the ledge of tunnel
No. 1, giving good ventilation for woik
in Imth places. A winze is going down
from the No. 2 level, near the south
end is in good ore, When deep
enough another short tunnel can lie
driven, making development 100 feet
"A short tunnel, 85 feet of No. 2 I Un
nel, was driven for ventilation. While
making an upraise and sinking the
winze that will facilitate work in liolb
places and give good air until the nexi
level is opened. The values throughout have averaged from tfi AO to more
than (QUO per loo, lieing samples of
the stratas ranging fnun six inches to
seven feet in widlh.
"Working testa, liy amalgamation of
the free gold, show extraction of between (10 and 82 per cenl, and lead to
the conclusion tlmt at least(10 -wr cent
can he saved by amalgamation. Some
if the selected mv tested in this way
has yielded from a small liead to one

Itis reported here that the property
of The New Fairview Corporation
Lid., has been sold in England for
■JflOO.IlOO, of which duO.OOO is to lie paid
down. $360,000 iu lliree months, and
the balance latter. This Information
has nnl yet lieen officially confirmed.
Imt it is regarded as probable that the
deal known to have la-en in negotiation for some time past has now heen
The company's property consists of
the unsold portion of the Fairview
townsite (less the government reserve))
the Hotel Fairview, a 3 story building
60x60; office building, assay outfit, etc.;
water rights; 48 stamp mill, with a
cyanide plant being put in ; almut 400
acres of coal lands situate 10 miles
north of Fairview, and 16 ciown-grant-
ed quail claims all within three miles
of Fairview.
The company's chief mining property
is the Stemwinder, which has levels
opened al 100,200 and 300 feet respectively, and which have developed a hig
body of quartt ore. At the 300 ft level
this bas heen yielding ore stated to
have averaged $10 a ton for a IB-font
shoot. Tbe deepening of the mine
shaft Is now In progress, a depth of
alxiul IU feet helow the station on the
300ft level having been reached
values are gradually improving with
depth, a 12-foot laidy of ore running
froul $8 to $20, no assay giving less
lhan $8. The mine is considered to
look better now than at any previous
This week it is intended to start
dtopping 20 more stamps, this number
having lately lieen added lo these heretofore in use. Ostenliurg is pushing
on with the work of installing the
cyanide plant, and it is expected to
have this ready for operation within
six weeks. It is housed in an L shaped
h.illding 150 feet long by 80 feet at its
widest part. Having its own sawmill
on the ground Ihe company has been
ina position to turn out on short,

More power for the stamp mill is lieing provided. By ditch, flume and
pipe water is being conved from a lake
distant ahoul 4J miles, In whicli dis
tance it. has a fall of about 1080 feet.
It, is estimated that 75-horse power additional is obtainable from this source
to stipplenienl the steam power already
available. Connection is made from
the Pelton wheel right on lo a j.ick
shaft connecting stent" engine and
stamp mill, By this combination when
more power shall he required than the
