partner's free miner's certificate shall be on the record of every such claim." The
partnership name must appear on every such record, and all the claims so taken up
shall be the property of the partnership: Provided, always, that no free miner who
is the member of a mining partnership, holding by right of location a mineral claim,
shall be entitled to hold by right of location in his own name or in the name of any
other partnership any interest in any other mineral claim on the same vein or lode
on which the partnership claim is situate.
(1896, c. 39, s. 7.) Should any partner fail to keep up his free miner's certificate,
such failure shall not cause a forfeiture, or act as an abandonment of the partnership claim,but the share of the partner who shall so fail to keep up his free miner's certificate shall ipso facto be and become vested in his partner's, pro rata, according to
their former interests, on the said partners paying the free miner's certificate for the
year. lllillllll BgliilP ^1§P
A partner in any mining partnership or his agent authorized in writing shall,
at any meeting thereof, be entitled to vote upon any interest or fraction of an in- 36
BRITISH   COLUMBIA  ALMANAC.
terest which he may hold therein; but the result of the votes given shall be determined by the number of the full interests voted upon, and not by the number of
partners voting at such meeting.
A majority of such votes may decide when, how long, and in what manner to
work the partnership claim, the number of men to be employed, and the extent
and manner of levying the assessments to defray the expenses incurred by the
partnership: Such majority may also choose a foreman or manager, who shall represent the partnership, and sue and be sued in the name of the partnership for
assessments and otherwise; and he shall have power to bind them by his contracts:
Every partner, or his duly authorized agent, shall be entitled to represent his interest in the partnership property by work and labour so long as such work and
labour be satisfactory to the foreman or, manager. In the event of such workman
being discharged by the foreman or manager, the Court having jurisdiction in
saining disputes may, if requested, summon the foreman or manager before it, and
upon hearing the facts make such order as it shall deem just.
All assessments shall be payable within thirty days after being made.
Any partner making default in payment after receiving a notice specifying the
amount due by him, shall, if such amount be correct, be personally liable therefor
to the partnership, and his interest in the partnership property may be sold by the
partnership for the payment of the debt, and any further assessment which may
have accrued thereon up to the day of sale, together with all costs and charges
occasioned by such default: and if the proceeds of the sale be insufficient to pay off
the several sums mentioned, the Court having jurisdiction in mining disputes, upon
being applied to, shall issue an order directed to the Sheriff to seize and sell any
other personal property of the debtor. Notices of sale shall, in either of the above
cases2 be conspicuously posted thirty clear days prior to the day of sale in the
vicinity of such mining or other property, and on the Court House or Mining Recorder's office nearest thereto. But if such partner be absent from the district such
notices shall be posted as aforesaid sixty clear days before the day of sale, and a
eopy of such notice shall be published in some newspaper circulating in the district
wherein such mining or other property is situate. Such sale shall be by public
auction to the highest bidder. The purchaser shall be entitled to possession of the
property sold, and to a bill of sale therefor signed by the auctioneer; such bill of
sale shall confer such title upon the purchaser as the owner had.
After a notice of abandonment in writing shall have been served on the foreman
or manager of a partnership by any member thereof, and duly recorded, such member shall not be liable for any debts or other liabilities of the partnership incurred
after service and record of such notice, and no member shall be deemed to have
abandoned an interest until service and record of such notice.
Upon the abandonment of any share in a mining partnership, the title to tne
abandoned share shall vest in the continuing partners, pro rata, according to their
ormer interests.
Any partner shall be entitled to sell, or contract for the sale of, his interest in
the partnership property, but such interest shall continue liable for all the debts of
the partnership.
No partner shall, after a bill of sale conveying his interest has been recorded, be
Mable for any indebtedness of the partnership incurred thereafter.\
LIMITED LIABILITY.
Any mining partnership composed of two or more free miners may limit the
liability of its members upon complying with the requirements following, that is.
to say:—
Upon filing with the Mining Recorder a declaratory statement containing^the
name of the partnership, the location and size of every partnership claim,
and the particular interest of each partner; and also placing upon a conspicuous part of every such claim, in large letters, the name of the partnership, followed by the words "Limited Liability."
The words "Limited Liability " shall thereupon become part of the partnership
same. 1
After such conditions shall have been complied with, no member of such part-
mership shall be liable for any indebtedness incurred thereafter beyond an amount
proportioned to his interest in the partnership.
Every such partnership shall keep a correct account of its assets and liabilities,
together with the names of the partners, and the interest held by each, and shall
make out a monthlv balance sheet showing the names of the creditors, and the!
amounts due to each, and file the same among the papers of the partnership; and
such balance sheet and all the books of the partnership shall be open to the inspection of creditors at all reasonable hours. BRITISH   COLUMBIA   ALMANAC.
27
■very partner in such partnership shall be at liberty to sell or dispose of his
interest therein, or of any part thereof, to any other free miner.
No member of such partnership, after a bill of sale conveying his interest has
been duly recorded, or after he has served a notice of abandonment of his interest
on the foreman, and left a copy thereof with the Mining Recorder, shall be liable
for any indebtedness of the partnership incurred thereafter.
No such partnership shall declare any dividend until all its liabilities have been
paid.
Every such partnership shall appoint a foreman or manager, who shall represent the partnership, who shall sue and be sued in the name of the partnership,
and his contracts in relation to the business of the partnership shall be deemed to
be the contracts of the partnership.
No such partnership shall be hable for any other indebtedness than that contracted by its foreman or manager, or by its agent duly authorized in writing.
Should any such partnership fail to comply with any of the provisions of this
Act relating exclusively to "limited liability" partnerships, such partnerships
shall, from the date of such failure, cease to be a " limited liability " partnership.

ABSTRACT  OF  LAND  REGULATIONS.
N. B.—No land is sold by the Government, except by public auction, on rare
occasions, when its adaptability to some special purpose subjects it to competition.
It is thus secured as much as possible to the uses of the bona-fide settler.
PRE-EMPTION.
Any person, the head of a family, a widow, or single man over the age of
eighteen years, being a British subject, or any alien, upon his making a declaration
of his intention to become a British subject, before a Notary Public, or other officer
appointed therefor, and upon fifing the same with the Commissioner, may record
any tract of unoccupied and unreserved Crown lands (not being an Indian settlement) not exceeding one hundred and sixty acres in extent.
Any person desiring to pre-empt, if the land be unsurveyed, shall first place at
each angle or corner of the land to be applied for a stake or post at least fourinches
square, Btanding not less than foui feet above the surface of the ground; any stump
of a tree may be used for a post, provided it be squared, and of the required height
and dimensions, and upon each post a notice in the following form, shall be affixed:
"A. B.'s land, N. E. post," (meaning north-east post); "A. B.'s land, N. "W.
post," (meaning north-west post); and so on, as the case may be.
Any person desiring to pre-empt surveyed land must make application in writing to the Commissioner of the District in which the land is situate and enclose it
with a sketch plan of the land and a declaration made before a notary public or
other officer.   Declaration, plan and sketch must be sent in duplicate.
Upon the compliance by the applicant with the provisions hereinbefore contained, and upon payment by him of the sum of two dollars to the Commissioner,'
the Commissioner shall record such land in his favor as a pre-emption claim, and
give him a certificate. |p|| IP^ill§ii
The pre-emptor must occupy the land within thirty days after the date of certificate of record, and he or his family must reside continuously on the land, with
leave of absence for two months in each year. Further leave may be obtained for
good cause from the Commissioner.
No person is entitled to hold at the same time two claims by pre-emption.
Upon the pre-emptor on surveyed land proving to the Commissioner that he
has been in occupation of his claim from the date of record and has made permanent
improvements to the value of two dollars and fifty cents per acre, he shall receive a
certificate of improvement.
Every person pre-empting surveyed or unsurveyed land shall pay one dollar per
acre for the same, to the Commissioner, in four equal annual instalments of twenty-
five cents each per acre. The first'instalment shall be due two years from the date
of the record of the land pre-empted, and each subsequent instalment yearly thereafter: Provided, however, that tbe last instalment shall not be payable until the
land so pre-empted, if unsurveyed, shall have been surveyed.
After the grant of a certificate of ^improvement, and payment of one dollar per
acre for the land, a Crown grant or conveyance of the fee simple of the land shall
be executed in favor of the pre-emptor, upon payment of the sum of five dollars;
but such Crown grant shall be issued only to British subjects by birth or naturalization, worn
No transfer of any pre-emption is valid until after the Crown grant issues.
LEASES.
Leases of lots not exceeding twenty acres in extent may be granted by the Government for terms of five years at an annual rental equal to one-fifth the value of
the land;'M&.t the expiration of the five years a Crown grant will be issued to the
lessee, provided he has complied with the conditions of his lease.
TIMBER LICENSES.
Special timber licenses for not more *than one thousand acres are granted on
payment of $50 per acre.
Licenses are also granted on payment of fifty cents per thousand feet. :OLUMBIA   ALM

valuable in Constipation, curing and preventing this annoying

these little pills valuable in so many Ways that they will not be
willing to do without them.    But after all sick head
