The delinquent tax list for the Ains-

were not delinquent.

The provincial government publishes
the delinquent tax list for the Slocan
division in a paper published in the
Ainsworth district. There four papers

A $75,000  DEAL.
Put Thru in Sandon Yesterday.
Geo. W. Hug.ies Sells His Quarter in the
Alamo Properties.
The largest deal that  has been  put
thru in the Slocan for a long time was
completed In Sandon yesterday, when
$75,000 cash was paid over to Geo. W.
Hughes for his quarter interest in the
Idaho and Alamo groups of claims.
The Scottish ^ olonial Syndicate, which
already owns the remaining three quarters were the purchasers.
The Idaho and Alamo properties are
too well known  to  require more  than
mere mention.    In the early history of
the country they were operated by J. D.
Farrell' and  partners,   known  as  the
Duluth syndicate.    At   lhat time Geo.
W.   Hughes  owned  an   interest,   and
when  the Scottish  Colonial   took   the
properly over in 1897 he retained a quarter   interest   and   acted   as manager.
The price paid at that time for the three
quarters acquired by  the Scottish  Colonial   was   $425,000.    Altogether the
properties  have paid dividends to  date
in the neighborhood of $300,000.

personally liable. The directors during
the pasl year have, in order to save the

sold lo pay the indebtedness, contributed
largely of their private means, hut they
they feel now that it is time the Citizens
generally to come lo the Company's re-

shortly to relieve pressing liabilities the
Directors have decided not to open the

arrangements to save zinc.
A few of the carpenters at the Payne
mill were given a temporary lay-off this
week.
The Ivanhoe mill is being worked

The Wakefield, on Four Mile has
laid off all the crew except three men
who are working on contract.
The Arlington, at Slocan City, is

There is unconfirmed rumor afloat in
Nelson that the Canadian Smelter Co.
is to build a big lead refinery there.
There is more labor trouble in sight
at Morrisey and the coal mines there
have suspendid operations until a settlement is made.
Thomas Jones took a look around
the Whitewater properties on Monday

More Zinc Buyers Comtnsr.
Reliable   imfomation   was    received
here Wednesday tint  another  zinc ore
buyer w is on his  way to  the  Slocan
from   Kansas  with  orders  to buy unlimited.    It  is  also reported   that   the
United States smelting company, which
owns an  enormous   plant  at  Canyon
City, Colorado and is putting in another
esteniive  works at Pueblo, has an eve
on the British Columia field and will be
an active bidder for lead and zinc ore as
soon as the Pueblo smelter is completed.
The management of at least 'one of Sandon's big mines is in close touch with
the Canyon City people and have received a satifactory offer for zinc-lead-silver
ore     Only the transportation   remains
to be arranged and there are assurances
that satisfactory   frieght rates  will be
granted.    The Canyon  City company
takes zinc-lead  ore  wilhout   penalties
for either,  and pays  for either or both
where the percentage go over 15.

JIM YOUNGER.
A    Character     Sketch   With   Sermon
Attachments.
Poor old Jim Younger has cashed
in���died by his own hand. Jim's life
was a sad one, and his death was even
more sad. Humanity the world over
is the creature of its environment ; Jim
was the victim of his. Five years of
aw/ul war in the companionship ofthe
Quantrells unfitted him for the phleg-
metic occupations of everyday life and
he and his companions in arms started
a little war of their own against the
world. He was brave to a fault, dashing, careless of human life, and up
against the other fellow all lhe time.
In days of war his actions would have
been heroic, his reward a nation's gratitude. In times of peace his actions
spelled murder and the forces of law
and order placed behind the bars.
Twenty-five years he served in expiation of his crimes���a quarter of a century removed from the world in the
awful dungeons of Stillwater. When
at last the legislature turned him loose
he was less fitted to meet the world
than in the wild, strenuous days that
had their climax at Northfield. Altho
liberated, the law allowed him no liberties. He was in love but he could
not marry. By his life sentence he
was legally dead since lhe 21 si day of
November, 1876, and by his lasl gun
play he merely placed himself consistent with lhe law. A necktie social at
Northfield would have been more
humane.
Such is the story of his life, and there
is plenty of scope to moralize. No
doubt Jim was a bad one. He killed
and pillaged and burned. His hand
was against every man's and society in
defense of its ordinances had to put him
away. He lacked the finesse to rob a
bank in a legal manner, or the ability
to steal a railroad on the stock exchange. His system of acquiring property listed him with the cohorts of the
damned, and he paid the penalty. He
was a robber and he was wrong.
But now when the cards are all down
and the deal is closed, who will say that
the misdirection of his   energy   which
made Jim a criminal was  a  fault all of
his own.    Jim Younger did  not invoke
the  secessionist   movement.      He did
not choose his birthplace   in   the home
of the guerillas.    But in the great cata-
calysm of bloodshed called the civil war
he followed his lights, plunged into the
strife with the friends of his  youth and
fought with   the   slave   states   of   the
south.    When the war was  over there
was no blaze of glory for him, no  martial music and waving bunting,   no tri-
umpial chorus to welcome  him  home.
His side had lost and  he had no home.
By a fatal   miscalculation   in   his   perspective he did not recognize  the   declaration of peace as applying to himself
���just kept on a-going, as it were���and
the ordinances of society made him an
outlaw.    The   train   of   circumstances
which had their climax   at   Northfield
were natural sequences.
Maybe in his youth  he was bright,

corageous and ambitious. Outside of
his besetting sin he may have been
honest as the sun and as true as steel.
Frequently the train robber is the kind
of man who would not steal a sleeper
on a faro layout. Most men have
their good points to offset their bad
ones. No man is either all bad or all
good. Asjoquin Miller say>: "There
is so much that is had in that which is
called good, and so much that is good
in that which is called bad, lhat I refuse to draw a line where God has
not." The eminently respectable citizen is frequently the product of a series
of happy accidents, or cowardice.
Men are good or bad just according to
how the play comes up. There is no
such thing as an inherent aptitude for
crime. To say that all men are born
in sin is blasphemy. Each and all are
creatures of their circumstances.
While the world   is   rushing   along
with a complicated system of criminology,   casting   thousands   into   jail   to j
make the.n good, inflicting untold miseries in the name of the  law, it   would
be well to occasionally  recognize  this.
When a crime is  committed society at
large is largely responsible, and socie'.y
should  shoulder  the   blame.    Twenty
per cent of the nation's wealth  spent iu
maintaining  a   prison system   has not
prevented crime.   Only a belter ordered
social system in which the   incentive to
go wrong is  diminished   will   lessen it.
Thousands today are on the borderland
between right and   wrong.     Favorable
circumstances will save  some; unfavorable circumstances  will   wreck  others.
At one time some thirty  years ago Jim
Younger no doubt was one  of   these.
He was out  of luck when he  took the
wrong trail,  and   his   epitaph   should
contain more of sorrow than anger.

SANDON, OCTOBER 25, 1Q02.
now is the TLime.
All the circumstances are favorable at the present moment for the
mine owners of the Slocan to make an
effective move to have the tariff taken
off mining supplies. Without a doubt
powder, rails and candles can be placed
on the free list at the next sessinn of
the ^Dominion house if the proper
action is taken right now by the parties
most interested.
The situation is like this: The
Liberals in the past have done their
best to avoid tinkering with the tariff.
They recognized it as dangerous and
left it alone. Laurier is on record in a
dozen plaees as saying that the tariff
-was out of politics, and many of the
other cabinet ministers have made the
same talk. Within the last sixty days
the whole situation has changed. By
his "Canada for Canadians" talk Tarte
has disrupted the government,put himself out of the cabinet and thrown the
tariff back into active politics. A general election must surely follow Tarte's
secession movement, but it is not likely
to occur before another session, when
the western constituencies will be redistributed. The Liberals are pledged
to reducing the tariff, and with a general election in sight they will have to
do something to square themselves
with the west, the support of which
.^they now need and the sentiment of
wliich is almost unanimously in favor
ot a lower tariff or absolute free trade.
There is more of prejudice than principle in this Tarte-Sifton fight. Therefore in remodelling the tariff the government will be guided by necessity,
recognizing that some reductions must
be made in order to furnish a subject
for campaign oratory, but moving always along the lines ofthe least resistance. ^Powder, rails and candles are
not backed by any powerful influence.
The Manufacturers' association is not
behind them to any great extent.
Consequently they could" be placed on
the free list without antagonizing any
influential industrial interests. At the
same time, by placing these articles on
the free list the administration would
furnish itself with a very plausible
story of "things done" for the mining
industry.
These things being so, it is time
for the interested parties to take some
definite action. It is never good politics for any government to make a
move that is not asked for, and no
astute politician will do it. Therefore
representations should be made in the
proper form thru the district's representative, who will undoubtedly be
found anxious to carry the case into
the tariff committee. W. A. Galliher,
M. P., has already published a statement to the effect that he would like to
meet the lead mine owners and hear
their views on tariff revision. It should
be a very simple thing to arrange this
meeting to take place in Sandon some
time in the near future, frame a set of
resolutions, present them to the member and give him a good fair start with
something definite and tangible to
work on. At the same meeting it
should be pointed out that the lead
mining interests are unalterably opposed to a tariff on lead because such
a tariff would unquestionably place a
smelting monopoly in the hands of the
Canadian Pacific.
the past could not afford to ship be-
cause of the zinc penalties will in future
be bonanzas. Prospects in Slocan
Lardeau, Ainsworth and Duncan
which can to-day be had for a song
will be fetching fancy figures a year
from now. Shrewd investors will take
a note of this and profit by it. Following the shipment of zinc to United
States will come the establishment of
smelters to treat the ore on the Canadian side, in the Alberta gas belt.
Altogether the outlook for the Slocan is brilliant, better in fact than it
has been for five years. It will take
some little time no doubt to get the
new industry on a proper basis, and
difficulties of more or less importance
are sure to be met, as is alaways the
case, but the outcome cannot fail, Slocan has the zinc and the world wants it.
IChe TReturn of prosperitp.
Sixty days ago the prospects for
the winter's business in the Slocan
were decidedly blue. Silver is in the
sump and lead in London is down to a
whisper (less $1 ahundred. The outlook for better prices in these metals is
certainly not encouraging, and if the
Slocan had to depend entirely on these
metals alone there would be very little
hope for activity in this district for
some time to come. But the chances
of a zinc market have put an entirely
new face on the situation, and the outlook has not been* as bright for a long
time as it is today. Negotiations are
now so well advanced that it is safe to
count on zinc production commencing
within the next 30 days. Once commenced, there will be no let up, and
the zinc tonnage will certainly be two
to one what lead has been for the past
few months.
People who are not familiar with
the situation will hardly be able to
grasp the importance of this new market. The zinc resources of the Slocan
are simply enormous, and worked in
conjunction with lead, will make it
possible to handle both on a much
more economical basis. There are
few mines in this camp which do not
carry more or less zinc, and all the big
properties are increasing in "zinc per
centages with depth. In the past
thousands upon thousands of tons of
this valuable metal, have been thrown
over the dumps or washed out with the
tailings, but in days to come these
dumps will all be gone over and the
values recovered.    Properties which in
And now the Doukhobors want
to move to British Columbia where
they would have scope to follow the
dictates of their religion uninterrupted
by government officials. Well, most
any old kind of religion goes in this
province, and the B. C. government
has too much unfinished business trying to keep itself in office to interfere
with anyone, but when it comes to
taking the Doukhobors along with the
religion ���hully gee!
In the absence of a definite announcement, Jim Dunsmuir still keeps
the public guessing about that resignation. But it is worth noting that
the Honorable Joseph Martin is confined to the hospital just now, and
therefore not in a position to attend to
his political affairs in the way that
usuallv distinguishes his actions.

One of the most ardorous labors
of Teddy Roosevelt's coal strike commission will be to place a value on Mr.
Baer's devine right, which was completely destroyed by those worldly
strikers.
"Canada for Canadians" is all
right in a way, but J. Israel Tarte is
one Canadian who will not be allowed
to capture any large section of Canada
that the Sifton-Laurier syndicate can
keep out of his clutches.
Manitoba is so prosperous that
the farmers down there are figuring on
buying thair gold bricks in car lots so
as to get the trade discount.
Germany has her government
chemists at work trying to discover a
substitute for zinc. The Kaiser surely
never heard of the 400-foot level in the

%ty fallacp of protection.
The policy of protection i > based
on the theory that a nation can be taxed into a state of permanent prosperity.
It is supposed to build up home indus-
trier, fnrnish employment for labor at
at home, and protect the industry and
the laborer from foreign competition;
in turn the industry established and the
laborer employed are supposed to furnish a home market for other industries. The second industry will require
the same protection as the first; and a
third must have the same protection as
the other two, until finally every industry is protected and the standard of
values is raised by at least the per cent
ot the tariff.
So far, so good. But does the
tariff which enumerates every article
known to commerce, succeed in protecting all the articles specified. A
very brief examination will prove that
it does not. For instance, by comparing Montreal and London* prices we
find that wheat, lumber, fish and ore
are cheaper in Montreal than in London. A more careful examination will
show that the difference represents just
exactly the ocean freight. Examining
the tariff we find that wheat, lumber
and fish are duitable if brot into Canada ; yet the duty does not raise the
price of the products of the  farm, the
forest and the fisheries   by  one cent.
On the other hand, ore is on  the free
list; yet ore in Montreal bears exactly
the same relation to the London market  as   do  wheat,  lumber   and  fish,
namely London price less  freight.    It
follows, therefore, as a logical conclusion that none of   these   products  are
affected by the tariff so  far  as  selling
price   is concerned; that the producers
thereof will get just the  same price for
their wheat,lumber fish or ore, whether
there is a  tariff   or   whether   there is
none.    The surplus exported regulates
the price of the whole product.
Now take the other side of the
case and consider the instance of the
farmer, just to see how the tariff affects
the cost of production. Suppose, for
the Sc.ke of argument, that he requires
a binder to take off his crop. He buys
a Dee ring, made by the John Abel
works in Hamilton, Ontario. There
is no questien about how the tariff
affects this class of goods. Only three
months ago the protectionist press announced that the Deering Harvester
Co. was compelled by the tariff to come
into Canada to manufacture their
machines. The Deering Co has enormous works in Chicago but the Can-
odian tariff hits them too hard, so they
come to Hamilton and buy the Abel
works.    Good enuf!   Here is  one in
fant industry cradled by protection.
But following the matter a little further
we find that this Deering company,
with works in Hamilton, is represented
at the Manufacturers' Association
which met in Halifax and asked for a
higher tariff in order to keep out foreign competition. Whoa ! Hold on !
Something wrong here ! The Deering
company of Chicago is asking the Dominion government to raise the Canadian tariff so that their Chicago works
will not cut in on their Hamilton
works. Obviously, somebody is getting the worst of it. Certainly it is
not the Deering company, for they
are protected both in Canada and the
United States. Then it stands to reason that it must be the farmer who buys
the machine and pays the freight. If
this is true of the farmer it must also
be true in the case of the lumberman,
the fisherman and the miner.
Evidently these four great natural
industries must take a world's price for
what they sell and pay a protective
price for what they buy. As these protective prices increase the cost of production t'ley reduce the profit. Consequently fewer people engage in these
industries, and the effect of the tariff is
to throw more farmhands, lumbermen,
fishermen and miners out of a job than
there   are factory hands all told.

As he peels off his roll
With a pain in his soul
And grabs at the magical slate !

And there's mighty few fellows that
ain't.

Must produce a fat wad in each  hand.

And the costly job proves to be fat.

Zinc Prices Soar in Joplin.
(Lead & Zinc News.)
The reduction in prices which has
been alarming the producers of the
Joplin district for rhe last few weeks
proves to have been but a temporary
reaction, and zinc ore is once more advancing in price and the local market
is full of strength. The highest price
paid last week was $39 per ton for the
output of the Doogin diggings, and
other high-grade lots sold for $38.
The assay basis was advanced al least
$1 per ton thruout the district, and is
now anywhere from $34 to $36 for 60
per cent ore. In the scramble for ore
which materialized last week the assay-
basis was generally disregarded, and as
high as $37 per ton was paid for 60 per
cent ore on a strait bid.
Many of the large smelling companies have been buying very little ore
for the p ist few weeks, in an effort to
break down prices. Their efforts have
been fruitless, and they are now out of
ore in the face of a rising market

Advertising" the Mining: Gamp
Very few mining districts are independent of outside assistance. It lakes
money and brains to develop mines and
without the combination minig operations are unprofitable, save in excetional
cases. The greatest sucessess in the
development of new districts have been
the result of the ability of those most
deeply interested therein to secure publicity thro the press, Those mining
camps which have made the most rapid
growth and the biggest records are
those which have made the greatest
noise and which have succeeded in attracting the most capital to their undeveloped resources. Men who stand
in the way of advertising the natural
resources of their district are stumbling
blocks and a detriment to the community in which they reside.
It is hardly possible to realize that
there are people who seem to pride
themselves in their unwillingness to
assist in such methods. The country
newspaper, for example, realizes how
much benefit results to his immediate
locality by the publication ofthe progress of its development. He knows
lhat the publication of news from his
camp will act like the continual dropping of water. Perhaps to-day it may
not attract more than casual attention
but he also knows thai some day that
same reader is likely to become imbued
with the idea that there are investments
worthy of his attention and which he
should look into. Then comes the indirect but certain profit to the district
as a whole. Every dollar in any locality is productive of others. As one
western mining paper expresses it,
"Make a Noise" and, let the public
know what you have.
