The Boston Transcript of April 15
said , editorially : " 80 years of piano
building , during which the business
founded by Jonas Ohiokoriug in 1823 ,
lias grown from modest beginnings to
Its present reputation and vast pro
portions , wore celebrated by Ohic-koring
& Sous last evening in Ohiokoriug hall
Upon the platform stood two pianoi
spanning the history of the Ohlckor
ings. Ouo was the first piano built bj
Jonas Ohickoring in 18213 , the firs' '
built in America. Modest , square and
simple in design and construction it
typified its period as olosoly as did the
massive concert grand of the 100 ! !
model , whioh represents the latest
advance in piano making. Yet music
was the soul of each as was demon
strated when Mr. B. J. Lnug played
first the ouo and then the other. Dur
ing the past week the mnsio trade
papers of the country have from one to
four pages of Ohiokoriug history , ro-
forriug in glowing terms to the great
.nrlr tiinf. him boon nRcomnlishcd. the
existing harmony between the company
and its employees , many of whom have
boon iiv their employ for 20 to10 years ,

hnvo boon various gatherings of Chick-
iring employes , but nouoi could have
Jurnished a stronger criterion of the
unanimity of interest , the feeling of
brotherhood , which exists among the
men employed in this great factory

ng hall last evening to do honor to

THUNDER MOUNTAIN ,
Reports from New Thunder Mountain
Gold Fields grow steadily bettor. There
will undoubtedly bo a great rush into
the district this year. Last year the
news concerning the new discoveries of
free-milling ore had" only begun to leak
out nnd bot'oro October more than 20-
000 claims were llled.
From every quarter there vvill bo
people going to Thunder Mountain , nnd
all will want reliable information as to
the boat route and how soon the trail
will bo open. Many who cannot go will
want to invest in n good property there ,
and the time to do that is now when
money is needed for mine equipment.
The Thunder Mountain Gold Mining
and Milling Company has n splendid
property of 120 acres , across whioh
there is a tremendous vein of free-mill
iner ere 30 feet wide and running right
into Rainbow Peak. Mr. Charles J.
Perkins , general manager of the com
pany , spent all last summer in the dis
trict. He ia now at the company's
eastern olllces in Now York , where ho
will remain until some time in May
purchasing equipment nnd describing
the property to all who wish to buy
shares. lie also possesses full informs-
Ion regarding the district and makes it
i point to answer all questions about it ,
without charge , BO that all who are iu-
erestod may write and get this inform
ation free nnd at first hand.
The company whioh Mr. Perkins rep
resents made its first public offering of
itock in January , and so many sub-
jcriptions have been received that a
great deal of the equipment for the
mine has been purchased and prepared
'or shipment as soon as the way ia
opened for travel.
It ia estimated that fully three mil
ions of dollars worth of machinery and
jqnipmoat is now on the way to Thun
der Mountain for variona companies.
One of the companies sold stock n year
ago at CO cents a share and now it is not
to bo bought for $8.00 per share. Thirty
other mines are opened and are getting
into richer ere every day.
The property which this company
owns is second to none in the district ,
and the more one learns about it and its
officers the greater tlio desire becomes
to own some of its stock. For informa
tion regarding it , price of shares , etc. ,
