It is very difficult to define tbe constitution
���of the Court ; it is not a Court of Conscience,
neither i& it a Court of Equity!nor is it a
Court of Law, but one in which all tbe three
forms of administering "laws are promiscuously intermingled.   It can be easily understood
that to preside in such a Court would be no
small matter, for ajearned jurist, how much
���more difficult then for men who have not had
that severe mental training so  necessary for
fine discrimination in legal matters.    In the
days of Nind and of Elwyn, this Court was
virtually, if not nominally, a Court of Conscience.   Then the mining laws consisted of only
a few proclamations issued from time to time
by tbe Governor, and the Commissioner supplemented these according to bis own judgment.   Since   then   extensive mining,   laws
Jiaye been passed and partly consolidated.   It
was not until the administration of Mr.^O'Riel-
ly that this Court, by his false pretentions to
legal ability, declared itself to be a Court of
Equity or Law^ or both combined.    In the
case Glasgow Co. vs. McWha, this Commissioner would have decided contrary to all the
fundamental principles of warranty, by pre-
tolvajUft^ hy   legislatin
bad no control had he not been bearded^by
MK Walkem who convinced him that Equity
as we 11 as La w. is ��" b o u nd i n calf ," and wi th
this form of administration began those mur-
meriugs that bave well nigh ended in an uproar.   The glorious uncertainty of this Act
allows such latitude to the Gold Commissioner who "alone and without a jury is tho sole
judge of law.and of fact,"  and is more like
the governor ot a colony on a small scale than
a Judge, that he is compelled to adopt a policy rather than strictly tb administer the law.
.    The-policy of Mr. O'Rielly was to use the
almost unlimited power to increase, the revenue; the term "month" was interpreted to
mean calender month; so that a claim laid
over say on the 25th June only remained so
until the 1st July, thus extorting from the
poor prospector, exorbitant, fees; such a policy became as decidedly unpopular as it was
unjust.   To escape the imposition many pros;
pectors neglected to preserve a good title to
their ground,, which neglect in turn has given
rise to entailed litigation.   The policy ot Mr.
Oox, on the other hand, was quite different;
he made no pretentions to legal ability, yet
Court;, or that the situation of the ground was
properly defined by tbe record."���'Cariboo
Sentinel,? Jupe; 24th, 18G5.
We now quote from a judgraeut in the same
cause in the Court of Equity:
i4S.i5 was refer red to as showing that a
Court of Equity was not on equitable grounds
to relieve against a fbrfeiture,but there is no
forfeiture here to relieve against."���'British
Columbian^May 2nd, 1866.
The, 34th sec. of the Mining Laws provides
" That every forfeiture shall be final all. Law
and Equity; to the contrary- notwithstanding."
Noiy according toVa decision in the Gold Commissioner^ Court which was afterwards ratified in the Supreme :Court, the Boreulis Co.
had notV^ off, nor recorded
this^ground; in dispute. According to the
M i niiig Laws if a com p an y fu Ui I a ny two o f
the foregoing conditions and negfect tbe third
they '.invariably forf��it. their right to the
grouiidj but if they negiect them all, then according lib a decree in Chancery''there is no
forfeiture here," certain ly n ot. We are reminded by this decision of the story of the
Quaker batter and the Sailor; Vv As I li ve,' ���?
said the Quaker, "I cannot let thee have the
hat.for less." " Live cheaper," said the sailor." " Friend," said tbe hatter, " I have sold
hats for five aud thirty years and thou art the
tirst one to find me out/*     '��� ' ��� y

the whole law since 1861, are at the mercy of
the directors of the Williams Creek Bed Rock
Flume Co., who, to their honor be it said, have
abandoned their claims, and declare tbat tbe
Council actually gave them more "than  they
asked for.   Last but not least comes the.Chief
Magistrate, to violate that  protection which
the miners foolishly expected the Gold Commissioners Court could give.     By  virtue of
powers vested in tbe Gold Commissioner, he
executed a charter in the name of Her Majesty, her Heirs and Successors, granting to
CranJftrd and others a lease of. four miles and
six-tenths of Grouse Creek, on conditions that
the grantees should construct GOO .feet of flume
during the first year, and 1500 feet each succeeding year, and if they failed, in-those conditions the Gold Commissioner for 'the time
being shall have the sole and uncontrolled
power to declare the charter forfeited.:    This
Plume Co" failed last year to construct more
than two-thirds of the number of feet required by tbe charter, aud applications'was made

BROOKS has no longer
In co
compliance with n resolution passed by the
Board on tlieftr.1 Dumber inst,  and in
��� Pflf and most agreeable*to the miners; he converted this Court back. again almost wholly
into a Court of Conscience, and presided in it
with no little success.��� His errors were those
of judgment and not of will, bis guide was
common sense rather than a smattering of law,
��� tmd although many of tbe decisions in this
Court during the last two years were not in
��trict accordance with tlie law, yet they were
such that the unfortunate litigants hardly ever
���received any sympathy unless perhaps from
their co-partners. The experience of years
shows that with all its indefmiteness this Court
would have given general satisfaction had it
not been interfered with and many of its de-
��� cisions weakened or quashed by other jurisdictions. The first intruder is tbe Bar. No
litigant is allowed any assistance to conduct
bis case in this Court unless he employ a qualified Counsel, and it often happens that with
ti learned Counsel on the one side of the case
the  Commissioner  is: embarrased  and tbe
'other side wronged by a 6harp practice, and
 one of these legal gentlemen went so far as
to make a false assertion against the Commissioner while sitting, as Associate Judge on
one of the appeal cases in the Supreme.Court.
This undue protection of the Bar is contrary
to the spirit of tbe Act under which this Court
is constituted, as it provides that no exception shall be taken to any informalities.
The next intruder is the Court of Appeal,
which might be worshipped, for it is not the
likeness of anything " in the heavens above or
"1 a thet ear tli b e ne ath,J'r n e i ther" Co nsc ten ce,
Bqnity. nor Law controls this Court.    It issued an injunction contrary to a plain rule, the
expressed ignorance of which must have been
humiliating to its president, and when compelled to rescind it he retaliated by pre-judg-
ing the case,, and ordered the Gold Commissioner to  perform  an  unlawful   act which
would have violated the sacredness of a public seal, and the refusal of the Commissioner
to obey has given rise to personal issues that
are not yet ended.   A Court of Conscience it
cannot be, neither is it a Court of Equity and
Law.   In proof of this we shall quote and
compare a few extracts from some of its decisions.   :
Borealis Co. vs. Watson Co.���Judgment���
"They (Borealis Co.) did not prove that their
ground was properly recorded, staked off, or
occupied.   He was obliged by Law to affirm
the decree of the Court below, as the appellants bad not established one of three things
viz., that they  were  in   possession   of the
ground wben the Watson Go,r jumped it; that
ui had   bsen   staked off as ordered by the
feited. Immediate action was taken by the
Gold Commissioner who allowed the company 30 days to complete 500 feet .of flume,
which order itself amounted to a declaration
of forfeiture, asyifc W have

has become the very centre of ;attraction and
excitement has been suddenly locked up ibr
a year by the: interference of the; Adrainistra-
to r    with: the uncontrolied p6wers of the
Go Id Commissioner. -;. It ��� wo u Id be strange indeed if this iuCreasing confusion in the miners
Court did not give Jrise to a corresponding
i ncrease of dissatistac tio n,y The mi tiers: remonstrated'by: petitions, but they seemed to
bave about as mncb effect as an infant crying
iu the night has on a siu inhering city.   Theii
came the demonstrations and ��� deputation of
last June, which ended in the election, of a
Mining Board and an interview with the Administrator.   The Board asked the Administrator by resolution to close the door of the
Go I d Cp m m issip ner ��� s Coii rt aga-i n si ap p e als
to the 8upi*eme Court.   YVe quote ills reply
from the'Cariboo Sentinel' of the 15th Aug.
His Honor said "that the Court of Appeal
could not be done away with entirely, as this
being a Crown colony it was governed in consequence by English Laws."   Some members
of the Board   expressed an impression  that
th ere "was" no  ap peay a 11 o we d in Aii s'tra i fa
when it was a Crown colony, but there were
no works of reference at hand, an after investigation however showsthat the Administrator
was in error.   The Miners' Court in the colony of Victoria was composed of a Mining
Board of nine members presided over by tbe
Gold Commissioner, and was strictly a Court
of Conscience, from which there was no appeal to the Supreme Court.   We quote from
an Act assented to on the 15th June,  1855,
sec. XXV.  "And  no proceedings  in such
Court shall be quashed for want of lorm or be
removed into the Supreme Court by certiorari
or otherwise;" and on the 11th March, 1857,
the council of New South Wales assimilated
their Mining Act to   that of Victoria.    Tbe
Board then asked the Administrator to  make
the decision ot the Supreme Court final, and
prevent mining suits from entering Chancery;
this also was refused upon the grounds that it
was impossible.   But his not; forintheAus^
traiian Acts referred to in the case of convictions there is an appeal to the Court oi Ses-
sions of the peacf and tb��r0 it rests.
