AN  UIPOIITANT DECISION.
ATKINS V. COY.
The point reserved in this action is
whether the Mineral Amendment Act,
1802, made the record tho runt of title
to a mineral claim in contradiction to
Hie Act of 18111, which expressly made
the location tin1 rout uf title.
In order to fully understand tbelnten
tion of the legislature on Ihis point, it
Is necessary tn consider the history of
tlie law: Prior to tho Act of 1891 llie
courts lu-lil thut llu* prior location gav
lliu prior right without reference to
lin* date of the record. This was held,
notwithstanding sectiun SO, Cuiisuli
dated Stiitiitcs, isss:
" In case of nny dlspuUi, Um lillu lo claims
will be recognized according to the priority of
tholr registration, subject tu any quostlon ua in
tbo validity ol tbo record Itself, and subject
further tu tlie terms, conditions, nml privileges
contained In section li nltliis AoL"
Thu reason fur this appears in sec.
tion 37 of I he same act:
"Kvory free minor shall, during Iho con-
tlnuaiico nf liis cortillcato, but nn longor, havo
tlio right tn enter uml mine upon nny waste
lands o( the Crown, nol fur tho time being lawfully iiecnpled by uuy other person. Ami may
also, during the continuance ol bis cortillcato,
enter upon any Crown hinds, or lands covered
by timber lenses, tu cut timber fur mining
purposes,"
It was considered that tlie words,
"mil lawfully occupied by any other
person," did not include Iniuls properly
located us mineral claims, even before
record, and that stu-li lands were there*
fore within the reservation. Tbe Aet
ol l.S'.ll set all doubts upon I liis puint
ul rest by sect ion IS, which enacts:
"In ease uf any dispute as to tho locution of u
mineral claim lhe title to tliu claim shall be
recognised according to the priority ol such
locution subject to any Question us tn the
validity of the record itself, nud subject further to the free minor having compiled with all
the terms und conditions uf this Act,"
Tbe Art uf 1SU2, section 2, repeals
suction IS uf isill. and in sectiun II
enacts:
No person ur Joint slock company shall he
recognized as having nny right or Inleresi in ur
Ut any niinerul claim, ur any minerals therein,
or in ur lu any water right, miningililch, drain,
tunnel ur flnine, unless he ur it shull havo u free
minors cerlillcate unexpired. And on tlio ox*
pirutiun uf a free miner s cortillcato, the owner
therein- sbull absolutely forfeit ull his rights
and Interests In or tu any mineral claim, and
all and any minerals lliereln, and in ur tu any
or every wnter right, milling ditch, drain, tun-
ne! or flume, which may be held or claimed by
such owner of such expired free minerscer-
tillcitc, unless sucli owner sbull, uu or before
the day following lhe expiration of such cci-lld-
cute, obtains tiew miner'sccrlillcutc: Provided,
nevertheless, lhat u sbiirebolder lnji joint slock
aqmnany need nut be n free minor, uml tb mgh
not n free miner, shall be entitled lu buy, sell,
bold, or dispose of any shares Iberein: And
provided, also, that this section si a'l not apply
to minora! claims for which n cerlillcate of improvement or Crown grrut bus been issued."
This section expressly changes the
rout, of title from the location lo the
record.
It is possible tn argue lbe law hark
to what. il. was prior to Mil, but it is
impossible to tin su without, in effect,
re-enacting sectiun 18 uf 18111 and repealing sectiun II i if 18112.
Maxwell on Statutes, second edition,
page 45, says:
"Whore a part of an Act has boon repealed,
it must, allhoiigh nut of of oporattvo force, sliil
betaken Intocuiisiilerutiuu iu construing tlio
rest. If, for liislnncc, uu Act which Imposed u
iluty on race-burses, cub-horses, nud alt other
burses, were repealed as regards |ruce-liorses,
tliercmnlniiig wiirds would still obviously 111*
elude them if the oiiaotmoiil wore road us if lhe
repealed words luui never formed u purl of It,'
What counsel for the defendant asks
me to du is tu Interpret the Minci-ul
Act us if section 18. hud never formed
a pari of it. Allbuiigh it would lie
very convenient to do this, I know of
no law by which il. ami be done,

Tbe ore resembles closely tliat found

walls, and Iho assays show a very high

as a new Held, in reality the locality
bus been known for some time and
three or four years ago it number uf

however, appear not tu have troubled
themselves to develop lhe property, or
to have gone llimugh tbe iron capping

Tlio Lust Clianeo, Skylark Camp - A
History of tbo .Mine.
In the belief thnt a detailed description, properly authenticated, of tlie
principal mines anil claims in tlie
Boundary Creek district will lie uot
only interesting to our readers ut
home, but a source of valuable infnr-
uiatiun tu outsiders, we purpose fo
publish a series of descriptive articles,
the facts of which will lie gained frum
a personal Inspection, and from the
testimony of only the must credible
witnesses. With this object; In view
the Lust Chance was visited;
The Last Chance was located on the
•Ith of July, 18011, by George Cook, and
recorded on the loth, Ou tlie Ulli of
March, 1805 he sold a half interest 10
Mr. T. G. McCormick who, on the
same date, transferred his interest to
Mr. S. L. Bui-bridge.
In passing, il niny be mentioned thut
Mr, McCormick, after obtaining d bill
of sale of the luilf interest., left the
counlry, conveniently forgetting iu the
hurry of moving In pay Mr. Cook for
tlin moiety he had t litis secured. Al.
the last sitting of the county court Mr.
Oitok sued for the nuiiuiiitauil obtained
judgment, but tt is questionable
whether this will lie uf much benefit. In
liini. Ou tlie 25ih of April of this year
Mr. Cook disposed of his remaining interest, to Mr. Bill-bridge on bund, and
un the iiii'l of June Mr. llurbi-idge
made an agreement tu sell the claim lo
Charles Muuteith, the sale being completed on lhe .'li il of August to llie
then newly organized Boundary Creek
Mining company.
When tiiKen over by the company, a
shaft about -10 feet deep had been sunk
nnd Ihe showing was very fair. The
exact size of lliu ledge was not fully as-
certaiiicd, lint it wits supposed lobe
lietwcen 12nud 11 feel in width. The
rock is high grade silver, and ran ut
lhe 40 feet depth from 00 ounces mid
upwards, allhiuigh assays had been
made showing I lie rock lo run $2,21X1
to the ton, These, of course were from
picked samples. Work wis commenced by the present proprietors the
early part nf August, and has been
prosecuted willi considerable energy
since. Three shifts of men have been
kept constantly al work, ttni.il iheshaft
has now been sunk a distance of 87
feet, In company willi Air, Cole, who
is superintending the work, our representative made a descent.of Iheshaft
aud was shown the new pay streak,
which, within the last day or so, had
made its appearance. This is freely
speckled with native silver, and undoubtedly will assay remarkably high.
The discovery of tlie pay streak was n
great relief tu I lie managers, as for a
while nothing Imt white iron ore
showed itself. The general opinion Is
among experienced men, such as Mi,
Douglas, Lind, Wilbur and others,
Ihal from now on the company need
feel no further anxiety, and as cimfir-
inaliun of thii view llio vein, now but
22 inches wide, is gradually growing
larger. The best looking rock is being
put to one side, uml when a sullleieiil
quantity luis ceen ncciiiuiilaled, u ship.
incut will lie untile lu the tunelter, The
ore Is particularly easily worked, and
as yet the miners have been little
troubled wilh Ihe inrush of water, the
horse harnessed to tbe whim having
an easy time if it were not for Hie Hies.
Tlio List Chimed is situated in tlie
Skylark camp, towards the west, and
Is from four to live miles from Boundary Falls.
One thing strikes one nfter climbing
the hill from Mr. Lind's ranch, and
that is the urgent need nf a good road,
We are quite sure that it' Ihis necessity
is properly represented to the Govern*
ment the grant will bo readily made
The Last Chance promises to he a must
profitable properly, und every assistance should be given to the company
who arc endeavoring to prove it to be
so in Hie face of many difficulties,
The moans uf getting in and uul ai

marked, both his family, who are Iii

Herbert Sbaw lias located a line
property nn the Norlh Fork. The
ledge, which is well mineralized, is no
less I bun ISO feet. wide.
Messrs. Wood und Slack, wuo have
been iii Boundary part ot the summer,
located Iheuther day a capital copper
properly near Mackay Iugi-im's ranch.

of nearly $460,
Messrs. (jistlcmnn & Dale have, they
believe, discovered a gond property
near Deadwood camp, wnich lhey are
now busily developing, Assays are to
lie made this week.
Mr, Finch of Spokane, a large, mine
owner and capitalist, came in on Friday's stage with Mr. Palmerston and
went up lu Greenwood, where he will
examine the Knob Hill nnd Ironsides
with a view lo pui-clinse,
Mr, Fred Rice nf Spokane has been
in Long Lake camp for several day's.
Ho wns joined on Wednesd.-ivbyMr
MeOully und another gentleman from
the same place, and it is probable
some of the properties may change
hands,
Mr. George Guess hns received the
appointment of assnyer to tbe North
Star mine in the Slocan, and he will
probably leave at once to begin liis
duties. The appointment was offered
In Mr. W. C, Adams, but lie was unable to accept it owing to personal
business.
Prof. Penrose, who was here two
weeks since, was so pleased with lhe
showing of Captain Adams'claims al
Mount Adams, In llie Slocan, thai he
hns decided in recommend llieni In
capitalists wli i h 11 commissioned him
to find them a likely gold Investment,
Prof, Penrose says this property is one
uf the finest, lie has seen anywhere.
It is reported lhat remarkably flue
ore Is being taken from Ihe Monarch
and Snnwdun claims in Greenwood. It.
will he remembered that acontract for
sinking it shaft, let liy the locators of
the Monarch some little lime ugn, and
th" contractors, for some reason nr
other, did not sink on the ledge at all,
and lhe owners have now laken Hie
mailer in band, wilh gratifying results.
Mr. Wells, nn expert, visiting the
cainpB.wu understand in the interest
f Eastern capitalists, arrived a week
or so since in Boundary from Trail
Creek. Mr. Wells says, from what lie
has already seen, Trail is nnl iu it iu
comparison with us. He snys notonly
are our ledges a great deal larger, hut
the ores aie higher grade. The curious
thing is Hint every expert that comes
to the country makes the same statement,   Is it coincidence t
Jimmy Scliofleld bus sent two very
fine specimens of the Nu. 7 to Mr. McMynn for lhe milling bureau iu Victoria. The specimens ware taken fifty
feet from the surface, and are fair
samples Of the ore now to lie seen at
the bottom uf lhe shaft,   The assays
show 122 ounces in silver andjof an
ounce gold. Au old mining mail from
the Slocan examined lhe ruck and de-
clareil il. was an fine u piece uf dry ure
ns he bad seen anywhere. There is
jusl. enough Iron lo make il smell
easily.
One of the most energetic nieii
probably iu the district is Mr, John
Christie, the owner of several claims
in skylark camp, iiiiiI Ilis proclivity
fur sinking holes in every direction
lias almost, become a joke, Last week
be put down a shall seven feel deep on

Not Muell HHIeta-ave,
Some years ago thu eimgregation of
a l-t'inole country chapel was called
upon to decide upon the nomination of
a'minister,
'I'he.y luui fully inailn up their minds
hcfqrelunid lhat Ihelr choice shuuld
test upon n inan well up in classics,
and they came to Ihe conclusion thai
Ihe best way of deciding this mailer
was to request, the candidate to preach
to them n sermon in Greek,
'/The 'minister desirous of obtaining
tlie post was a \V''lshman, and nut
being able to comply with their request, thought he suvy ii way tiqt uf
liis difficulty, '|'qe day arrived upon
whicli hn was tq preach the nil-Important s|'r||iun. Ascending the pulpit
he. eunpneqeed a vqll|l|lii !l|OI|g|l !lt'
(el'ly iipnseiisjciil discourse jn \Vels||.
Ifi|ppeniug lo glance towards Hie gallery, he saw a man convqlsed with
Ittugliti'i'. Instantly divining i hat he,
tun, must lie a Welshman (continuing
in the snme language and w-illiiuil
making a pause), the preacher callinj
uut iu Welsh i
" My friend over lliere in thegi'llery,
don't you split,"
Needless to say, nips friend" did not
betray him; |ie gained llie post, his
congreg{|tJt||i being charmed at having
a liliiq  \ylio could be so eloquent in
Greek.
