amendment of 1007.
1 will, thorofore, Bt-st deal with
the tacts as alleged by the claimants in each group. Tho lirst in
priority is tho Bowman - Leonard
The tacts as aUogod by the claim
ants are that they Located their
ground long previously diBCoverod
by them to bo oil bearing) in Aug
ust, 1895, that utter proper location
they immediately started for the
government office  at  Donald,    some
201!   mllos     away,    in     unlet'   tn   have
the necessary applications filed,
and notices posted ami advertised,
that on the way they woro Informed
that tbe govornmonl agont for tho
district was in the lower coun
try, and that thoy Immediately
went to his camp and tendorcd liim
tho necessary fees and tho applica
tions for their licence, that thoy
duly mailed copies of tlie nottcos to
government agent's ollice For post
ing under tho I'nal Mines Act Tho
government agont refused the applications aad ti'tiili'r on llie ground
that the Iniul was under reserve und
could not be staked as oil lands or
otherwise dealt witli. Ilir applicants, after repeated attempts te
have their applications accepted,
bowed to the inevitable, and did
nothing further at Unit time in to
gard to their applications. In L904
however, hearing thnt Hie country
was opon and that applications were
being made fur licences there, they,
without restaktng, applied in the
usual course and took all tlie proper
necessary steps Ity advertising ami
otherwise, anil had granted tn them
the licences in the form provided by
tiie special order in Council approved June, 1904, anil that the satin
have been renewed from yoar tn year
Tlie facts as alleged I tinil as a fact
to be true. This location only covers certain ground on  Sage creek.
The second location as alleged was
that of the Watt group in .lulv.
1900. Tbe (acts as alleged are that
the- applicants properly located,
that, they inuiie the usual applications and tendered tlie necessary tecs
to the Department nt Victoria, B.C.
that they were informed that the
land was under reserve und thnt no
licence could he granted, that they
attended on the officials of the Department on numerous occasions and
innl further correspondence from thai
time until 1904, that in lluit the
applicants duly advertised thoir notices, tiled the applications .in the
otlice of the government agont nt
Port Steele, posted notices in tin'
government, office and luul the spec
ial licence undor tlio 19114 Order in
Council granted to thom and the
same have been renewed from year
to yoar. Tho only tact in dispute
in this matter is the question nf
proper stultini:. nr, for that mutter,
staking at ull. lln Unit point n
groat muss of evidence has heen ten
dered. I must find us n fact that
Watt did not make proper sinkings
in limo. It. Is Inexplicable in mo
how a iniin cniilil go Into a rough
country such as this is and stake
out tlie group ot claims this mun did
without louvlng uny fractions, or
having uny claims short, lu other
words, lie miidc un absolutely per
foot staking In. la each case, tako
in every Inch nf ground be required
und not. go nn inch further. If il
hud boon suggested thut tlie ground
luul heen surveyed ht'turrliuiul, uiul
he hud placed Ids posts guided by
that survey, he could not hnve dono
moro perfect wnrk. I cortntnly
must he governed liy tlie ovldonco nl
Slirveynrs such us McVlttlO anil
l.cckie on Mils point that it was ah
aolutoly Impossible tor Wall tn hnve
doni' nny bucIi staking. In addition
dealing with lhe question apart
from ttie expert ovldonco, it cor
tulnly appears incredible tn nn'
thut such staking could he dono up
mountain sides nnd across vulicys.
lln this point much tins boon said as
to tbe ovldonco of tho witness Brown
In contradiction of that ot McVittie
Brown went in with McVtttto whon
tbo Crunbrook group wus located
and acted as guide. I nni convinced thut McVittlo's evidence on this
point is correct, and the kindest
thing I can say of Brown's story Is
that he is mistaken, nr has forgot,
ten. Muny credible parties were
over tlie ground apart from McVIt
tie und Brown und no sign' uf thoso
posts spoken of liy Brown were ever
seen liy any of thom. But the ro
suit tn my mind us to this' stalling
is governed by several mntorlal facts
i. Its porfi et accuracy, whon the
staking was done by u layman with
iuiieeurutr Instruments nver a rough
country,
a. The lint thai all tho posts
from the claims have disappeared
except two, which arc I lie two key
posts.
:i, '1'inii. uo otlicr posts woro mi
the ground when the surveyor went
there, und tic wus only shown points
to start from.
4. Tlmt no ovldonco cxisls nf the
milking of nny posts. In the locality
In  which    thoy   were cliiltucd lo be,
such   as ,■      i,,i I    trees,    or
s umps.
:.. Watts, according tu his own
ovldonco, elniins llm! In' li'iai,.,I on
a compnss variation ol twenty

liis surveyor's Hold notes Bled bIiow
a survey based mi a variation m
twenty imu- degrees, forty mtuutei
-.viol-' Uu- survey in ouch cum' cone
sponds exactly with the staking.
Such being my Undine I conclude
thai I lie staking was at tho least
nul properly done, nor was it doni
.,1  all in  1900.
I come then in Hie noxl staking us
alleged in poinl ol time, nnmoly,
Uir Cranhrook group ami the James
Baker, Ida Baker, W, V. Gurd ami
C. Hutchison claims m tho Groon

nl ihe necessary sd.tuii.ry work and
paid the requisite fees tor renewals
jiml have liml renewals granted them
from year to year and to date I liml
such matters as a fad.
'I'lie next staking in order is that
uf the Tupper tackle group whicli
was .lunc in Septcmbor, imu. It
is alleged that these claims wen'
properly staked on the ground, tbal
all proper millers were posted and
advertised forthwith, und all neces
sary papers tiled in the proper otlice
ami fees tendorcd (ur licences, that
the applications fur a licence under
tne Ad were refused, tbat tin' petitioners have consistently, insistently ami persistently pressed [ur the
statutory licences instead nf the li
eeiu'cs issued in pursuance nl* tile
Order    in Council,    thai    they  were
anil   are   nuw   entitled     tu   the   snlile.
These petitioners have brought the
fees fnr the licences into Court. I
find as   a faet that, the   petitioners
nine     lalli'll    lill   necessary     steps   as
alleged fur obtaining licences. Iu
my .opinion tlie licences should have
been granted subject in conflict with
the Cranbrook group ami four other
claims named, ami these applicants
are now entitled t" the same fur
such ground as is mu covered by
iitlicr applicants prior in lime, which
point   1   Will ileal  with  later.
1   then emne tu  the  last   group,   the
Greenwood    claims.      I'he  I  -1   four
Iter, w. F. Hind ami c. Hutchiron,

group. As tu ihe i-thers, n is nl-
loged, ami  I liml as a met, 'mt all
entitle .'he parties applying to l.atc
licences granted under the Wit if
there was any vacant go um1 In
which  they  could attach.
Turning then tu the standing of
each group. The Bowman Leonard
group must, ! thin!-.. Ue treated as
heing abandoned, When the applicants ascertained in 1895 that the
government agent would nut accept
their applications in my opinion
thev accepted tlmt decision, ami
Iheir conduct for the next nine years
bear nut that contention, they took
uu   further   step nnd   mado   uu at
tempt     tn      obtain     title     till     I'llll.
Surely they could not stand by (Inline that period and consider thai
they still retained ur ever had any
rights. In my opinion in 1895 they
accepted what thev thought was the
Inevitable ami abandoned all their
rights. I ealinnl see that See. 2 ul'
Cap. 2*. 1907, which validates anil
confirms nil licences issued under the
special Order in Council of Juno,4th
i'lul, can in any way assist them, ns
the very licence issued ill pursuance
of tlmt llnlel- in Council stales
"thai I'm- the purpose uf enabling all

COAL AND PETROLEUM
Industries   of  Vast   Importance
Awaiting Development In
Southeast Kootenay.
The coal fields of the Crow's Nest
I'ass have acquired a world wide
reputation both on account of the
quality and the quantity extracted,
aud are without doubt the largest
and best coal fields on the American
continent
in the Fathead valley, south of
the Crow's Nest coal areas, large
bodies of coal have been discovered
during the past few years, in fact
it has been demonstrated that a coal
area embracing over two hundred square miles has been prospected and is now waiting the action of
the County Court, in deciding titles,
for development.
During tlie past three years over
three hundred licences have beeu
applied for and granted by tlie provincial government, and in many instances locators have covered the
same ground several times. The
Government in grunting these licences, and knowing the conditions
as to locations, expressly stated
wlien issuing licenses that the
question of priority must be settled
in  tlie  County Courts.
A number of prospective owners
each having an unbounded faith iu
their priority right brought suit in
the County Court to have this question settled once for all, Judge P.
Wilson, before whom the cases were
tried, this week, rendered a decision
which will be found in another column. While production is the ultimate measure of success in all mining districts yet, this cannot be ac
complished unless the title of loca
tions are free from any possible liti
gatiun. When this is an nccom
plished faet, capital will thoroughly
prospect, and if worthy develop tho
properties.
This section has beeu thoroughly
prospected and is known to contain
large areas of coal and oil lands,
which in many cases will be opera
ted as soon as possible after the decision of Judge Wilson is made pub
lie.

"As an inducement lor ihe
development of the coal fields in
British Columbia, the Cuuadliui
Pacific entered into au iirrimge.
ment witli lhe ('rows Nest Pass
Coal coin pail)' eight vein's ago
agreeing not to compete in the
production of coal for in years,"
said .1. S. Carter, general agent
of the Canadian Pacific in
Spokane.
"This restrictive n-ixi'imient
will expire by limitation in I HUH,
but the Canadian Pacific will he-
gin producing cunl 1*I'oin lis mines
a year earlier, us the Crows
Nesl Pass compuny is not in
sistiiif: on the continuation of
lhe ugreemelil to lhe limit, but
is desirous llllll the Canadian
Pacific help supply the demand.
DEMAND NOT  POHSEI3N.
•'Ai I ho time the agreement was
made iI was not foreseen whal the
increase of tin'demand for coal
from the British Columbia mines
would be. The Canadian Pacific
is eroding buildings, starting
towns and has lei contracts for
morn than §1.000,000 worth of
equipment,. When ihe work is
under way Ihe daily outpul of
Ihe mines will be 1)000 tons daily,
"From reports recently
published il would appear thai
Canada would consume all the
proiliicl of its mines. During
the lii'sl eight moiilhs of this
year the United Slates marketed
in Canada mon' than li.noii.inii)
Ions of bituminous and anthracite
coal, an increase of 1,500,000 Ions
over the same period in the preceding year. Nearly till of lhis
wns consumed in eastern Canada,
it being shipped from Penu
sylviinia nud other coal-protluc
ing regions having the great
lakes ns a transportation route.
"This will continue to be the
source of supply for tbe eastern
part of thi' dominion, as lhe rail
routes cannot compete wilh lhe
water transportation. The
growing demand for coal in lhe
northwest will be supplied from
the mines in the immediate
territory. Tlie opening of the
Canadian Pacific coal fields will
go a loiifr way in solving lhe fuel
problem in ihe northwest."
