The charges-were laid by 0110 F. \V.  Bailey, who stales that when he  seaichod Ihe lecoid book on the 31st of  May the G1e.1t Foi est mineral claim  was not recorded. AKo that pages  had been torn 'out of the book' and  blank pages had been loft.  Those chai ges are of a serious nature  and will put their fr-amer in an unenviable position if pi oved false".

" A repoi t lias somehow been spread  that "Mr. A. !S. Farwell is averse* lo  giving deeds to tire piopoit.y sold by  him in Keveisloko. How this originated cannot be definitely ascertained,  and it is open to doubt its aiitlithenli-  city. Last 'September Mr. Farwell  wrote a,letter to a citizen of this town,  in which, having reference lo the agreement for 'settlement, lie says : " When  tin's matter, is concluded 1 shall only'  be too pleased lo give you a con_vey__  ance for your lot." -Surely, the man  who wrote like'tliis, (Iris letter;appeared in the Sept. Otli, 1896,'issue of the  Mail) cannot now be refusing to con  vey to purchasers froniibim, and it is  ho'ped he'will be in it position to deny  this report.  Apart, however, from Mr*., Far-well's  consent to convey-���������It will be remembered 1(that in June, lS9(i, the Mail  published a notice from the 'Deputy  Attorney General-whicl^said, arrangements between the two governments  had been, inade whereby owners of  lands in the town, si to of Farwell _ and  other disputed lands 1 in- the railway  belt, deriving their titles through original grantresfrom the Provincial Gov-  ernhieut, may 'obtain confirmatory  grants of said binds fror'n tire. Dominion Government. Then"'followed a request to send in titles for "examination  and perfection of'details, preliminary  lo-iregistration. It was pointed out to  the Deputy Attorney General that  people who bought ficiiu 4lr. Farwell'  (tlioioiiginal grantee fiom the Provincial Government.) had only 'agreements'  fm-sale, and he replied lo a case the.  Mail cited, as follows: " Tf the party  tefened to in your issue'had forwarded his agicement (which ill present is  his only title deed) lie would have bee.n".,  advised ,i, lo further details." 1  It those "deriving tlroir-tit.les through  original grantees from tho -Provincial  Government (Mr. Farwell) may obtain  grants by sending their titles ; and, if  agreements for sale are. tlieir "only title deeds" : .it is very clear that such  agreements can procure confirmatory  grants and those, should be suflicient  to secuie registration. This set-ms to  be a logical 'conclusion, grouping stlie  Deputy Attorney^Goneral's own letters  and vvoids, and if it is con Oct, it i'o'.il-  ly should in ft mallei- if Mr. Farwell is  averse- to convey, which,it is unreasonable, in view of his letter quoted, to  think. Aii agieeiuent was "yesterday.  f('irwarded lo Mr. Smith, the Deputy  Attorney General, and he vvill advise  "as to further details.''  the f.*imous group (llic Alpha group)  ��������� .1,     ���������  I!,  wiircli   lliey   spoke    and   promised  much at the annual   meeting.
