Who Is To Blame?
Nelson Tribune: Now that the provincial government is taking steps to sell
real estate for delinquent taxes, people
are beginning to find thai property they
own is assessed in other people's names,
or lo "unknown," Thla can only be attributed, In many instances, to carelessness on the purl of the assessors. A
case in point comes up from Bast Kooteuay . A Nelson business man owns lots
in the original townsite ol .Moyie. The
title is in his own name, and the deeds
arc registered in tbe land registry office
iu Nelson. None of the lots ate assessed
lo him, and because ol not receiving the
usual notice, his taxes are delinquent,
and on each lot   besides the  amount  of
taxes due Is a penalty lhat amounts to
almost twice as much as tlie lares,
I.very assessor In Kootenny  can  obtain
Information ns in the ownership of real
property from the land registry office at
Nelson without cost; but, it appears,
that some of (hem are unwilling tn go
to the trouble In makeiiiipiiites.iiiiil year
ufici yeat property is assessed not to ihe
actual owners, hut tn nOU-OWOen ami to
ihnl convenient name "Unknown."
The li im nee minister hat) better get
after his assessors, mnl give them a
prodding with a sharp stick.

Tlie signs of the times  point with   no
uncertainty to the beginning of a new
ern iu the development of the mining
Industries of Bast Kooienay. In every
direction und in every department, new
life is taking form; and the most encouraging nud hopeful feature of these
activities nre their practical and substantial charncter,
The district has passed through that
period characteristic of the early life of
nl) minning camps. When first dis
covered they pass through epidemics of
booms and consequent relapses, brought
on by Incompetency ntut irrational activities, South Kast Kootenny has experienced its share of these misfortunes,
and survived them.
That the resources nre here sufficient
for great industrial and commercial
activity, have been plain to all practical
minds; and also, that ull that has been
needed is practically conducted enterprise.
That the present enterprises nre in Ihe
hands uf practical people is sufficient
reason to inspire confidence In all con
Railroad To Be Built
The sale of the charter of the Kooteny
Central to people amply able to construct the road, and the announcement
by them that they intend lo do so soou,
is au important move iu the right direc
tion. The benefits to be derived from It
are too obvious lo need mention.
Enterprise In Good Hands
Contemporaneous with the work of
railroad construction ure tne development of mines that are mines, nml the
erection of smelters that will smelt.
In this connection It is significant to
note that these enterprises are in the
hands of men who know- their business,
nml that they mean business, and lhal
the enterprises on hand Hre practical
affairs, ami in wide contrast to the bombastic display of so-called promoters
who have wasted money upon unworthy
The Marysville smelter seems to have
gotten Into practical hands; and there
i-; 110 longer any doubt of it erection aud
early operation.
The linarlnn King Situation
Among the important movements
along this line of progress, are the recent developments aud euterpriaes up
Perry Creek. Probably the most significant and Impurtnul 01 these is the.discovery of the value of the Roaring King
group. The Herald has it from tellable
sources that the Value of this properly
exceeds anything in West Kootenny;
that il is, in fact, au extraordinary affair
nnd likely to develop into one of the
greatest mines on the American continent. For reasons that hnve not been
livulged by either lhe present or former
owners, the true situation hns uot been
ink* public. It is intimated, however
that complications existed between tbe
former owners tbat were romewhat dramatic in their character, which was uot
to their inteseat to make public. It Is
known, too, that 11. II. Ross, the man
who cleared up the complications and
purchased the properly, Is upon tbe
ground surveying the claims in a snow
-■nun. It in said, too, that in order to
protect nil bis rights he has formally
uml legal If abandoned and re located
ull the claims. It is also inlimnted that
the circumstances of their discovery
nnd subsequent purchase by Mr. Rosa
will make a dramatic nud Interesting
page in the history of the mines of Kasl
It is snid by ilm-e who have Heen the
ores, "that a camplire will fry gold out
of the sulphide oies like grease out of
bacon." It is also said that the variety
of ores is something unusual, and that
the manner of their occurence indicates
bonanzas at depth. About three miles
of what appear to be tbe line of tbe intrusive dyke which characterizes tbe
outcrop of the veiu, have been located,
aud U is confidentally asserted by those
competent to judge that Mr. Ross has n
property that will produce millions.
In this connection it is interesting to
observe that Mr. Ross appears to be the
least concerned, and regards the matter
as the most commonplace affair. What
bisinteiiiions are regarding the development ol the property has not been learned, but It is supposed he like his other
methods, practical nnd conservative,
lu consequence of these recent developments much interest is turned in that
direction; and It is conlldently asserted
that thc most Important mining activity
likely tu lake place in Kast Kootenay
wilt he in connection with thla property.
W.   Layton   Expresses   Himself   on lhe
Sullivan Smeller.
B. W. Layton, one of the heavy stock
holders In the Sullivan mine, hns just
returned to Spokane utter a week's visit
at the mine ami Marysville. To a reporter of lhe Spokesman Review, he
spoke as follows:
"I have confidence in the Sullivan
mine, It has the gieiitesl ore deposit
of any mine I ever have seen, ami I
have visited nearly all the principal
mines of the country. There Id absolutely DO reason why lhe properly should
not be paying dividends to day, uiher
timn its management.
"I am trunk to say lhat the woik bus
been mismanaged, I mean by that thnt
(lie company within Ihe past year has
spent flO0,ooo for the construction of a
smelter and bus to-day practically nothing to show for it except a lot of brick,
a flume and one or two other necessaries
thai can be utilized in the completion
ofthe plant.
"These are the facts, and for one I do
not care to have the public misled. I
am nut on the market for more stock,
nor do I want to Bell the 160,000 shares I
owu unless I can get out even or a little
better, which would be at a considerable
advance over the mat ket quotations for
the stock.
"The eastern stuck holders are not dissatisfied with the mine, but they certainly have reason to criticise the construe*
tion of the smelter. 1 do not kuow who
is to blame for Ihe fiasco, nor do 1 cart.
1 do think it strange, however, that BO
many western mining men who otlgl t
to be more or less familiar with smelting should have been taken In hy the
building of the Sullivan smeller.
"There is absolutely no truth in the
report that the eastern stockholders tire
playing a rule or ruin policy. In the first
place we have never asked for control,
ao tbe understanding has been thnt the
holdings of Senator George Turner and
Colonel W. W. I). Turner would he voted with Ihe eastern stockholders if it became necessary, thus practically giving
us control. 1 wish to say without reservation that Senator is and has been in
no way to blame for the mismanagement of tbe property relative to the
building of the smelter. He has been
busy at Washington, and while he hus
relied too much, perhaps, upon what
others have have told him, he is built
that way, and can not believe that those
horn he trusts can b.* wrong until tliey
prove themselves wrong. I have the
highest regard for Ibe senator, as my
confidence in bis ability and integrity
nre unshaken.
'The entire plant will have to be re
habilitated, and to do that it will require
between $75,000 and $100,000. The entire trouble has been, aa far as I have
been able In make out, in the employment of Manager Austin. After he hud
made a mess of things and he wus discharged, It was learned that the manage
ment bad hired the wrong Austin; that
while Mr. Austin of Denver was a compe
tent smelter man, having built several
successful smelters in Texas and Col
urado, he happened to be a brother of
the man whom tbe Sullivan company
employed lo build its smelter.
During Manager Austin's regime
there was spent ou tbe proposed smelter
f100,000, which was raised by Ihe
issuance of 500,000 shares of smelter
stock. Aside from that tbe company
finds itself in debt about $9,000, and
under existing conditions it will require
about $75,000 to complete the work.

.lames Cronin, of Moyie, manager of
the St. Kugene mine, has been in town
the past few days with his family. Mr.
Cronin stands to-day as one of the solid
mining men of the province, and one
whose judgment always carries weight
when it comes to the discussion of inin*
ng matters. Speaking of existing conditions und the future of mining, Mr.
Cronin said that be wns of the opinion
that the future of British Columbia was
a bright one, but it would take time for
the chin.ges to take place. During the
past year be has traveled over considerable country, looking far mining property, 1 ul he snid. "I am convinced
that there is 110 country Iwtter than
llritish Columbia, and South Kast
Kootenny will prove to be all rlgbt.
It's true to a great extent the. ores here
are low grade,but with tbe large bodies,
improvement in treatment and a beneficial change in legislation, mining here
will be revolutionized, But take those
engaged in lead mining it is useless for
tbi'iii to attempt to do anything at this
time, under existsng conditions. Many
seem to be of tbe opinion that the two
per cent tux is the heaviest burden tbe
mine operators have to bear, when iu
fuel, tha1 is the only one tbat is in sight.
The man un this side who wishes to put
in machinery to improve and work bla
urine, must pay a big premium over Ibe
mine manager in the States in the way
uf an average duty of about 20 per cent
011 nil of his machinery and supplies.
Improvements that would cost a company in tbe Stales $60,000, here it would
cost nearly $80,000. Then again onr
labor here, costs about 20 percent more.
Tbat alone at the St. Kugene meant
ubout $3 per ton, which ia tbe difference
just now between success and failure io
lead miuing.
"Take the two per cent tax, wblch ia
generally believed to lie on the net proceeds, while on tbe contrary, is on the
net returns of the smelter. It costa ns
oboiit$i5 per toil to produce tbe lead,
basldea interest on Investment, and that
is not deducted, but is taxed. If we
were to operate tbe St. Kugene now, we
would have no net proceeds to be taxed,
yet there would be a heavy tax levied on
our product just the same.
•'Some very interesting experiments
are being made in the treatment of ores
these days that is bound to result In tbe
reduction of tbe cost of treatment.
There is also a positive conviction tbat
mining in British Columbia la badly
hnndicapped by unfavorable legislation.
So strung is tbis feeling that capital baa
lost confidence, and as a result the mining industry of this province to-day is
prostrated. Men wuh money don't feel
like Investing In a province where there
is no guarantee of the stability of tbe
laws that I'oniiull mining. When tbe
St, Kugene properties were bought the
men who have invested about $1,000,000
in that proposition, were justified in doing so at that time, for the reason tbat
under the conditions then Ihere was
bound to be satisfactory dividends, providing the ore was there. Now, with all
the ore iu sight, with the magnificent
equipment we possess, the man or company who would attempt to operate the
property would do so at a continual lost
In other words, if the mine had to he
worked, now, ii would not be worth a
"It is time the politicians realized the
situation, and I believe they are coming
to that. The men who have suffered
the mnst is the laboring class. They
have been deprived of the means of a
livelihood by the shutting down of mines
11 over the province. And the miners,
if they would take a fair view of tbe
matter vou Id see that it is lo their Interest to work with mine owners, When
lead, silver ami copper were high, then
it was an easier matter to pay a higher
wage, but when everything iu tbe way
of mining is depressed, it is suicidal for
tbe laborers to demand legislation that
will cut their owu throats,
"Capital is never idle. It U always
seeking investment, and the fact that it
is keeping out of British Columbia to-day
is tbe best evidence in the world that
mining here is uot a dividend paying
Death of T. C. Thompson.
Many Rosslanders learned with extreme regret of the death at Feruie of
T. Carbet Thompson, accountant ot lhe
Crows Nest Coal company. He was regarded here ns one ofthe young men
of tbe Kootenays who possessed the
ability and energy to raise to the very
topmost rungs of tbe ladder in the Kootenays, and bis health after a lingering
attack of enteric will be regarded ns a
personal loss hy those residents uf the
Golden City who knew him.
As accountant uf the coal company
the late Mr, Thompson was in a sense
the executive head of the company in
the Kootenays, inasmuch as lhe policy
ofthe company in respect to its relations to the public ami lo the body politic of the province seemed 10 be committed lo his charge. Thus it was that
at  the last meeting of ihe Associated
Hoards ot Trade of British Columbia,
the Ute Mr. Thompson was a prominent
figure iu the issues where tbe interests
of the coal company -clashed with those
of the Kootenays as a whole. His tie-
fence of the company at tin*; [nocture
and the ingenious and Skilltul manner
in which he fought lhe battle ol the
corporation against the balance ot the
convention elided the admiration and
respect of the delegates as a whole.
