Nelson takes nil that part of Trail
Cieek wbloh lies nasi of ihe Columbia.
Trail Creek takes nil of Nelson district thnt lies west of the sainn river.
This will apply io ihe recording of
all mineral claims from this time
henceforth Asa matter of revenue,
Trail Creek losses more than it   gums,
I,nt tin' gain in the faoil.ty of record to
ibe prospector is considerable, and tne

Ihe other political divisions.
At  n meeting  Friday afternoon of
