+ Died Apr 8, 1935 at V, Joseph Hunter, 92, last surviving member of the 1st Legislative Assembly of BC. April 9, 20 - photo. Retired in 1918 after more than 50 year career as surveyor, civil engineer, legislator, railway manager, mining engineer and coal mining operator. He began in the early days of Cariboo and concluded at Canadian Collieries...
Born in Aberdeen, Scotland he apprenticed as survey and civil engineer.
Lured by the news of the mining excitement here he came in 1864 by way of Panama. He stayed a week in Panama City then moved on to San Francisco. It was at the time of the US Civil War and he, along with others, was suspected of being members of a pirate crew having intentions of a raid on the US Pacific Coast. However, he was able to explain his business in San Francisco and was allowed to proceed to Victoria. On arrival he repaired immediately for Cariboo where he remained 7 years as miner and surveyor.
He surveyed a large number of important claims in that area, settling many disputes among the miners concerning boundary claims. He was held in high esteem by the mining fraternity and in 1871 was elected to represent Cariboo in the Legislature.
Leaving Cariboo he joined the staff of CPR as surveyor and that same year he surveyed and located the site for a Seymour Narrows Bridge. In 1873, he took a pack train from the head of Howe Sound, up the Cheakamus River through to Lillooet River, along the route of the present PGE, and explored the country between the Cariboo wagon road the Clearwater River. In 1874 he examined the territory between the wagon road and Blue River on the North Thompson, looking over the passes of the Cascades.
In 1875, he located for the Dominion Government, the Island Railway from Nanaimo to Mill Bay, linking up the section from Victoria to the latter point....
