LEASEHOLD v PLACER  Miners on   Gold   Run Make  Statements  For Recognition at tho Hands of  the Leaseholders ���Value of  Improvements.  On Saturday morning last, practically all the miners, owning placer  claims on Gold Run, were before  the Gold Commissioner for the purpose of making statements as to  why their titles should lie recognised as against the applicants for  leaseholds, covering the same  ground. The latter were represented hy Mr. W. Pollard Grant.  When the leaseholds . were applied for in 1890, protests were entered against the granting of same  by the owners of individual claims,  on account of the fact that the  ground was capable, of being .worked at a profit by ordinary placer  methods. Subsequently, the leases  were granted subject to the recognition ofall individual placer rights.  The following miners, gave evidence as to the work they had  done: Brown, Cameron, Stubble*  field and O'Connor, representing  the Natal group, improvements,  valued at $1900; Pioneer group,  Henry Irish, $1000; G. F. Johnston, 2 claims, $1500; O. BelUveau,  Snowshoe group; J. Crichtou; several claims by purchase, $Soo; P.  Thomas, 2 claims,'. $6000; George  Stukey, 1 claim, $3000; F. Wostell, 2 claims; Chas. Kent, 6 claims  $4000; Jas. Thompson, 5 claims:  $4100; Clark, Martin & Bovard  Dead wood group, 6 claims, $5000,  iu all, approximately, $35,000.  The improvements cover shaft;  sunk to bedrock, drifts, pumping  and hoisting machinery, wheels,  dams, etc. The lull text of the  evidence will be forwarded lo Victoria, and the titles to tlie various  claims as therein set forth recognised as each in-dividual case appear,'  to warninl.  PROTEST.  Closing Exercises.  The closing exercises of lhe At  liu Public School were held on  Thursday afternoon. The parents  of lhe children turned oui en innsse,  together with mnuy visitors, to hear  lhe "nieces," and were doubtless  more limn -4-.lis.ied. The proficiency  shown by the children under Miss  Hughes' tuition could not mil to  be remarked, and the words oi'regret expressed by several of the  speakers, after the conclusion of the  exercises, nt Miss Hughes? intention, of resigning, would convey to  her but a faint idea of the estimation  iu which she is held by the children,  the parents and the public.  The pvoinollonswill be published  next week.  Spruce   Creek   Miners Raise  Objections  To the Granting of a Bedrock  Flume on That Creek to C.  Queen and Others.  A set of applications for a bedrock flume on Spruce creek has  caused quite a furor, among china  owners on that creek- The pio-  testants were given a hearing be- .  fore the Gold Commissioner. 011  Monday last. Mr. Chas. Queen  appeared on behalf of the applicants and Mr. Arthur Cassidy for  the protestants. The first witness  called was John McKimion, who  did the staking of the flume for the  applicants iu September last. He  was severely cross-examined by Mr.  Cassidy, but- 110 evidence affecting  the cause of the applicants was obtained.
