WANTED—A MAN NOT AFRAID
Human nature has strange, unaccountable streaks of cowardice running through it,
side by aide with ttreaka of courage.
Armies of men in.! march unflinchingly into the jaw* of death upon battlefield*!
and many individuals, in the heat of action, will do deeds of surpassing heroism in the
Woo.lv quarrel* of nations over territory and trade. Vet there are few ho would
dare the risks deliberately undertaken by the Arctic explorer, Andre, who, in 1897,
rose into the air in a balloon in an effort to drift over the North Pole.
Andre disappeared. No trace of him was ever found and his suppoeed tragic end
sent shivers over the entire civilized world.
No other man has since been found, in any country, who was willing to repent
Andre's experiment in the Arctic.
Nearly seven years have elapsed since the balloonist met his fate, and half a dozen
more costly North Pole expedition* have sailed against the northern ice in the useless
attempt to find the apex of the earth in ships. Lives have been loxt oh these expedi
tion*, but it was in the accustomed manner, deaths following sioknea*, accident or si
posure, HUT ALWAYS ON THE EAR*£Hj OR SKA. OR UK; NEVER IN THE AIR,
The world has not shuddered over these death*. The adventurers in ships tOM the
customary Arctic risks, and they perished.
It was to be expected.
.YET ANDRE'S PLAN WAS THE MOOT FEASIBLE, THE MOST SENSIBLE
OF ALL Till-: PLANS FOR REACHING THE NORTH POLE!
. The man had a chance of succeeding, a very considerable chance. If the wind
had blown in the right direction, in the upper atmosphere, he would have- been quickly
wafted to the Pole, and, if fortune had further favored him, he would hut.- finally
dropped at some point on solid ice or land and escaped.
, He took his chances, the wind was wrong—and he lost.
Pit will probably be many years before another man can be found brave enough to
tempt to reach the North Pole in a balloon. Thousands upon thousands will offer
, themselves as bloody sacrifice* upon battlefield* and other thousands will commit sell
murder, but none will be brave enough to become a second Andre.
If any man wants to risk his life to some purpose, let him have a balloon made,
scrape together a few hundred dollar* tor expenses and try to reach the Pole, with
the knowledge that if he succeeds he will become immortalized, and if he fails, well
it is better than plain, everyday suicide or dying in a sordid war between nations for
more territory or more trade. >~-'?V ,

will be something unprecedented in the

TAXING INDIAN LANDS
The question of whether the Indian
kinds are assessable or not was deliberated
on in Judge Sni-H's department of the
superior court yesterday on application of j
James Goudy, .111 Indian, who seeks to]
restrain the county assessor from assessing 1
The main question in the case for the
court's consideration was one of statutory
enactment. If the limitations on the land,
the sale or lease of which was prohibited
except by authority of the government,
have not expired in. accordance with tbe
act of the legislature and the subsequent
set of congress, it is agreed that the land
is not assessable.

"The Clipper mine i- certainly a won- j
