' Huddleston vs. Deaks.���Fawn claim on  Pine.' This case w as tried last w eek. It w as  a contest as to whether the claim was a  bench or creek. Considerable interest has  .been manifested in this tease. The Judge  visited the ground and also had the Gold  Com-nissioiier inspect the locality. A great  deal of expert evidence was taken on both  sides, but the Commission came to the conclusion that the ground couldn't be called a  creek and accordingly gave judgment f or  Hudd'estou without costs.  TUESDAY, JULY 4.  The whole of to-day w as taken up' w ith,  hearing evidence in the Discoverj, iu the  Northw est Territory cases. The court adjourned early ou account of the fact that a  large number of those interested were  Americans. ��� ,  , WEDNESDAY,   JULY r).  To-day the evidence in the Northwest Ter-  ritarj cases was continued,  Mr. Gordon Hunter, for the adverse claimants, nnd Mr. McBride for the discoverers,  ha\ing waived any argument and left the  matter in the hands of the court, the Commissioner reviewed the facts of the case  briefly. He said it would appear that Miller  & McLaren had three claims, one of BOS 1-2  feet, w hich the.*, called the discovpry, and  the other two claims of 250 feet each, making  iu all 1,000 feet. As to the r>38 t*eet claim, th��  only adverse claimant on that was Yon Pre-  houtine, w ho, howoter, being an alien, and  lut\ing located and recorded after the alien  law ciune into force, was therefore burred,  so that tbera is no dispute us to the bed of  the creek. With regard to the two claims  higher up, the court did not see how Miller  & McLaren could possibly hold tiny more  than the luw of B.C. allows to discoverers,  that is, GOO feet. But as they only staked S93  feet, the Commissioner felt himself hound to  adheie to the principle already laid dow u bj  him that a man cannot go outside of his  stakes. With reference then to the ground  abore: Johnson appears to hare staked on  the 5th Nov. '98, and recorded on the 22nd  November. Allans, the adverse claimant  to Johnson, staked ou the 6th of Mai ch last,  therefore his title is displaced by Johnson's  prior title. The Ifact that the "Sagamore"  a as restaked by Johnson's friends iu his  (Johnson's* absence, w as nothing against his  title, us the rsstuking  uus done  u jlliout hi*  knowledge or consent. As John,On had  staked aud recorded, before the alien law  came into pll'oet.  it did not uppb to him.  Tho next claim concerned was "Scottie's  Share," recorded on tlio 101 li August. 'Subject to an adjustment ol the bouiiduries  which,will be necessary in this case, Scott'  would ha\e the right to 100 leet dow n from  his initial post, and Oscar Bracket, Gold Hug.  would come in between Sagamore and Gold  Hug, he having located on the litth Junuury.  Homer Leonard's case,. the Commissioner  said, had caused him a t-reat deui of anxiety.  Leonard locuted oii the -lStU of August. His  claim was contested bj'Mrs. Vunwurt and  J. .Unbone}. Leonard .sajs that he made a  written application to record, uud presented  it for record, but it was refused. He lett one  with a friend to hand in while he, Leonard,  was out during the winter, but this second  one was lost or destroyed; but having furnished to the court satitfactorj proof of ap-  plication, the Commissioner felt that Leonard  had shew n himself entitled to a record as of  15th August, because the Mineral Act pi o-  vides that no man shall lose by reason of the  inability of the'officials, as in'this cuse, to  record through press of work. Therefore  Leonard would get his record. As to the  Happy cluim, the Commissioner considered  that us Mr. McKinnon hod made his application before the alien law w as passed,* he w as  entitled to hold as against Miller & McLaren.  He gets 100 feet down as between himself uud  Mrs. Johnson, w ho is entitled to the space  betw een the Pine Creek Chief and the Huppy  claim. Burns is entitled to the Ora, und the  Hulf Loaf falls to Bennett.  "���   As to those w ho had staked on  the benches  opposite Miller & McLaren's discovery.'cluim  of ri98 1-2 feet,  uud outside of the rim to rim  width claimed by Miller & McLaien on their  location posts, these were allowed as against   ���  Stiller & McLaren   ou the  principle that the  discoverers uot having indicated their intention to claim outside from rim to rim,  it  would be  wrong to   oust   these   men  from  their claims which thej hud taken up in good  faith, for, it must be remembered, the Gold '  Commissioner only  reserved for the discov- ,.  erers then- 2"i0 foot claims from  rim to rim.  -  Atkinson.vs. Smith.���Atkinson was given a  record to thc'Snowball  bench  on'Pine, and/  'Hans'" Weitzman'-was 'given Ti'ecoVds" to *tlii��  Rosie on ^Pine ;   Weitzman  on Spruce uud  Big Nugget'on Willow.      ' ��� .  We are requested bJ the Commissioner to  state that it' is necessary that claim-holders  without' valid records should bring their  cuses into court as soon us possible. Those  desiring to petition should consult the Sec-  retarj, Mr. Bass, -and not trouble the Commissioner w ith the preliminary w ork.  THURSDAY, JULY G.  Willow ���As between the parties hereto,  Negus is entitled to a 100 foot bench claim, to -  be taken 200 feet "back of the 1 and 4 line of  Surprise claim. Clay not being represented,  his interests could not be dealt w ith. The  low er 100 feet of the rese^ e (Tice's selection)  w us also not before the Commissioner. Gra- -  ham, as against Negus, is entitled to a fraction back of Negus' 300 foot line, and below  tlie Tip Top*line. The Tip Top falls to Robertson unless a portion of it is included in  the Enip. The Enip, McWest, Little Mac.  Todd claim aud Mascot being prior locutions,  are allowed as against Robertson, (Tip Top)  Scheeler (Liverpool), Tickers (settled), Mrs.  Law ' (London). Kehoe (Province), Mtscot.  Vancouver, but the fMascot as against the  Atlin, is not adjudicated upon. Scheeler is  prior to Vickars, and McLennan and Marshall are bound by this decision; McLeod  and Mrs. Leatherdale abandon their respective claims.  As to the second 100 feet reserved for Claj ,  Wastie has no claim "to it as against the reserve put upon it, and he must stop work  upon that particular portion of the claim  until the end of the close seuson.   '  Leave is reserved to all parties to speak as  to boundaries of the claims m question, and  and the court advised that a survey be made  to detei mine this point.  .,   1   '  ' :  "-I  -'. *':',>!  - - 5  *     *         s"il  '. * *i}  -   -ft  Jf  , **  ���'"J  .       ?YJl'f  ^   *���>**���  -"    -Al li  *r  */*          "���' *  ,, ~y**f,  ,   -V\*"  '   -. -   ���*"-  '    -Hv  it  ,**������  THE MILES PARTY SAFE.

A London despatch of June lf.tli say-,:  The  St. .Ttimci Annette this afternoon claims to  have received from an absolutely reliable  source, at Pretoria, the Capital of the  Transvaul, the plan of campaign which will  be followed by General Joubert, commander-in-chief of the Boers, in the event of war  lietw een the Transvaal and Great Britain.  General Jubert's force, it.uppears, will consist of 20,000 men, armed with Mauser rifles,  m addition to 4(1 quick-firing guns aud 1,1)00  artillerj men, most of them drawn from the  German and Danish armies.-- With these  troop-., and help expected from the Orange  free State, Joubert expects to take, the offensive immediately after the declaration of  war, enter the Orange Free State aud march  ���� Kimberlej', the liritisli diamond mining  jwittce u> West Griqua, unci \\ hich forms four  ofthe seventy divisions of Cape Colony.

Lillie was something ahead of the ordinary. It  didn't last long, but it ,was hot to  start with and lost none of its gait  towards the finish, when Carroll  refused to" come up on account of  the referee not allowing a foul. Lil-  I lie got tlie decision.    The respective  culling together of   tho Legislature,   when  such an occasion can arise.   Tho condition of  the Province in- serious and isdaily bucomiiig  more so.    Mines are shutting down  in  all  directions;   transfers  of .mining   property  have boeu abruptly arrested ;' tho value of I  developed properties is'depreciating every |  day.     Meanwhile  the    Government,   stands  supinely by, waiting for no one knows what.  'I.'ar be it from the Colonist to-'exuggorute  tho   nature   of  the   situation*.     Wo  would  gladly believe it  to  bo 'favorable.   Hut it is  the worst kind of folly to refuso toi-ecognizo  conditions as they.11 re.    Day after day pusses  ii-sd  things are getting worse.     Nothing is  done to minimize the evil.  -Not a Govern'-'  meiit paper has a word to suy.   With hundreds ot man out ot employment and the  value of mining properties steadily depreciating,   tho. organ   of  the    Finance   Minister  discusses the affairs  of foreign   countries,  und the organ ot the  Attorney-General presents its views  on  prize-fighting.    But what  else can be exp3ute.l from a divided cabinet ?  The business of the country is going to the  dogs,    while    Messrs., Cotton    and  'Martin  struggle for supremacy.    Xeither" of them  has the courage to tell the truth, lest he may  alieuiate the vote of a   certain   section, iu  Vancouver, to which both of  them are playing in a pitiable manner.   A more disheartening spectucle never was  presented.   Here  we have a fair Province suffering from hasty  and   ill-considered legislation,   and not   an  effort has been put f ;>rth by the Government  to avert disaster.   Do the  members of the  Government see daylight ahead?   If so. why  have they not.made some  public deliverance  .upon the subject ?   Will they -undertake to  say that at any date in the near future the  dispute between' the  mine-.'jwners and the  miners can be  readjusted  so-that, work cau.  be resumed on them ?   Have they made the  slightest effort ut reconciling, the two parties ?   Apparently they know-nothing, have  done nothing, aud have not the least intention of doing anything. The reason lies upon  the surface.   It matters little to Messrs. Cotton and Martin w hat becomes of the business  of the Province so that thev can get hold on  to office.   If Mr. Cotton can get Mr. Murtiu  out. he is ready to allow tliinpa, to drift as  they are now drifting to the great loss of  every one. If Mr. Martin could get Mr. Cotton  out, he w lil not  hesitate to * wreck the Province in the operation.   The w hole combination oijght to be turned out.   They*are all  e'ltially responsible  for the harm that has  been done.   Thej   must  plead guilty either  to ignorance or recklessness.     We believe  them   to  be  justly   chargeable   with   both.  Distrusted by every business interest in the  Province,    Quarreling    umong    themselves,  rapidly losing the friendship of their warmest supporters, the Government  is rushing  headlong to destruction, w hich would  be a  matter for  congratulation   if   it were not  dragging the business of the Province with  it.   The time has come for action.  -Turn out  the incompetents and self-se��.ker.s who have  been   unconstitutionally   foisted   upon   the  country.

Since   his   arrival   lie  htul   heard   that   the  Danube had been raised and was on her way  buck to Viuloria.

The result, he  suid, he treasured lery greatly and it would  long remain a keepsake.    His object iu coming here was to make himself familiar with  the country  and the conditions  prevailing.
