He built a scow, cut a  prepuller'from boiler plate, loaded  'upJ with liiachintry and uuppliea  and went bteamiug up Masbet inlet.

After' the strange  frontier ship had gone up the Y������i-  koun river to a point where it was  necessary to cross country, heavy  fore&t and bush were confronted.  The little engine here was detatched  from the scow and is now doing  service as a donkey engine, clearing a passage through .the foiest  for'the heavily loaded scow. It its  powerful enough, rigged as it is,  to ymk small" trees 'out by the  roots. Thd_ scow is then pulled  forward. One of the 'feats was  pulling the outfit over a hill.  They say that if given any kind  of an engine Barton can get anywhere. Some months ago he  steamed up Quatsina sound with a  floating wharf^bearing a drill outfit. The steamer had unloaded  the outfiit on the wharf and Barton found it would take too long  to g������t a launch lo tow hi in to the  beach where ti?.j drill was to bo  set up.
