Probably nowhere ia the. provinoe  '.wis the news of the settlement of the  coal strike received with greater aatls-  -f action than at Greenwood. No city  Was more seriously affected. During  ythe month of March there were fewer  men employed at the mines and less  work going on than at any other time  ���since the Boundary cam* to be recognised as a mining camp. For instance  except for holidays and such occasions,  ,'the Mother Lode was never completely  ishiut down until last week. All men  were laid off at the other mines and  the smelters and there was what could  be properly called a complete sta^  nation of the mining and smelting industries. The loss to the,?bjisinea8  men of the community was a most  'serious one and of course mine owners  and employes suffered seriously.  Tbe settlement" is embodied in. a  lengthy agreement signed by Q��b.  Dougherty president ..of District No. 6,  W. F. of M. amV Ehlllp Christopher  president district "No. 7, W. T. of Hi.,  representatives of-.the district ,e��ecu-  i^tfrre -fr^^^wrrS^^na-^iriiiel' and  _the management"of the Crowds Nest  Pass Coal company. The Ferale miners refused to sanction the agreement  but the strike was'declared off.  The members" nbf the conciliation  committee were compelled to remain at  Fernie by heavy snowglldea on the  Crow1* Nest Pass railway for several  days. Mr. Keffer is expected home today, Mr. Gaunce who was secretary of  the committee had much work to do in  connection with the preparation of the  report of the committee. - He will be  home in a few days.  .' Now that the strike is settled active  preparations are being made for carrying out the plans of the various com^  panies which were interrupted by the  "striker"~Orderea have"Comefrom the  head office New York to blow in both  furnaces of the B. C. Copper company  aa. soon as coke is available. It is  understood that a new superintendent  haa been appointed to succeed Paul  Johnston but his name haa not been  made public. Preparations for increasing the smelter capacity will be continued and notwithstanding the serious disarrangement of plans contemplated about the first of the year, it is  hoped that before the end of the year,  the smelter wil! have at least double its  caoacitv and that it will he running-  full blast.  ���������j There is already considerable activity  at the Sunset smelter. This smelter  Will like the others have to wait for  coke but in the meantime the men arc  busily employed getting the large  quantities of machinery- recently  t}r4ered into place, so that when the  coke does arrive two furnaces will be  blown in and a third furnace will  qufckly follow.  ./��he Granby people have made  Btrenuona'efforts to keep two furnaces  rjunning by securing coke from Comoz  and an additional heavy cost. - On ac  count of the C. P. R. strike even this  alternative was not an easy one. The  Company is hopeful that now they will  be;.able to run to their, full capacity-  and make additions without being  forced to close <lown or shorten their  output at frequent intervals for want  of coke. They liave some big schemes  in View which they are likely to carry  but tinder reasonably favorable con*  ditlons.  Of course the high grade properties are  not affected by coal strikes so long a a  there are .smelters nithin reasonable  distances running.

John Thornton, known fofmore than  half a century, first* lathe placer min  ing- camps of the Pacific coast and  later in the Boundary country of Brit*  ish Columbia aa* the adjoining State  of Washington, as "Jolly Jack", died  yesterday afternoon in hia cabiti* below Boundary Falls. The old maxThad  long been failing so that his death waa  aot unexpected. He na�� been cared  for since he became unable to cart for.  hiinself by the Pioneers Aasoclatlbn of  Okanagan and south Yale, most of the  surviving members of which are-still  resident In the Boundary.

Hia.atay  there, however, was aot a long one, for  the old man was aot content to reinaln  so during the winter he returned to his  cabin on Boundary Creek. Since then  hia needs have been supplied and his  comfort provided for by the old timers  of the district.  Jolly Jack was born at Stocktaa on  the River Tees, county of Durham,  England, oa June 11, 1825. In 1838,  sixty five years ago, he left bis home  to go as an apprentice >n a collier.  After six years of seafaring life, spent  chieflly ia old world seas he landed in  the United States and thereafter sailed  out of "New TorfcpPhiladelphia, New  Orleans, and other Atlantic ports to  the West Indies and Veneaula, southward, and to Bermuda, northward, la  1844 he joined the U. S. navy, going  on board the steam frigate Princeton,  Capt. Stockton, during the time of  President Tyler's administration.

He was invalided back to New York after the  American flag had been hoisted at  several California ports, and later served in the southern coast survey service, doing duty along the coasts of  Florida and Texas. -. Then he sailed in  a small brig for Valparaiso, where he  was when news came of the discovery  of gold in California. He joined in the  rush thence, reaching- Stockton in the  spring of 1849, In 1858 he was oae of  thousands attracted, to British Columbia by the Fraser River placer gold  discoveries. In 1859 he saw Boundary  Creek for the first time, goiag thence  to the. Columbia River, .where, below  Marcus, he worked ."Jolly Jack's bar  with considerable success. Thereafter  for years he joined ia pretty well evary  placer rush the boundary districts of  British Columbia and Washingt*Q saw  from the early '60s oa. Did.Jolly Jack  has for. years been known all through  the country on each aide of the liae for  a hundred mileaor more east and west  of Boundary Creek, and now, at 78  years of age he has crossed the great  divide.
