Who Are Going to the SLocan Country. The Gafadia.n MintnW g Lawn Are 1h Eaie and 1ot D~floult to Fully Meet. Iiiiam Jumping Atmreat Unknown.-Dls ptsees lettitc tly a Coemnisieleaer, with the right oftAppeal. S.oXAeae, Wash., Dec. 28.-[Special.1 From present indications it appears to be a eartinuty that there will be an unpree. dented rush into the Kootenai, B. C., country inthe early spting on account of th. reported rich and exteneive mineral d:seoveries made in the Katieo-8locen sec tions, just before the snowfall of winter began. That many will return disappointed is certain as there will scarcely be enough rich mineral claims to go round should as many prospectors flock into the districts as are expected. Yet it is too soon to discuse the merits of the region as it takes time, development and money to prove whether it Will Come up to the expectation of the original discoverers or not. There'is no doubt bqt a number of Mon tans and (daho miners and prospectors will try their luck in that much advertised section, and as many of them probably are not familiar with the laws and customs of British Columbia as applied to mining, I will give a brief outline of the same. In the first place the laws of the country are very simple in every respect and are rigidly enforced, civil, criminal and shin ing. No hoodlumism is tolerated on that soil and no maudlin sympathy wasted on one who transgresses the laws, Drunken new. and the carrying of concealed weap ons in towns is strictly prohibited and speedily punished as misdemeanors, and for a persa.n who commits a felony there is no escape from punishment when once con vioted. Hence the liberty, property and lives of all are thoroughly protected. Claim jumping, an occupation much re sorted to in United States mining camps, is practically unknown in British Colum bis. The government of a mining division is vested in an officer calll a gold com misslioner. He settles all.d hputes that may arise between minersregarding their claims as speedily as possible and generally his decisions are so just that they are final, yet the losing ptrty has the right to appeal to the courts of the country, The first requisite for a miner or prospec tor on entering British Columbia is to se care a free miner's certificate. This gives him a license to explore, lo. sate or purchase mineral ground. Without the free miner'es certificate he can obtain no title to mineral land or enforce the col lection of his wages before a court. This certificate costs $5 per year and may be taken out from one to four years ac cording as the applicant desires. The free miner's certificate is all the evidence of citizenship necessary, and it matters not whether a person was born in America, British Columbia or China, he or she must obtain this license should they have any all to do with mining. Mineral ha be staked on the c:oppings, but o latest law it is necessary to have before saking a location. Imsninioe of uclaim is the same as ited States. i. e., 6000z1,500 feet, S only necessanr to place three a location, one at each end and e eer:.r. These stakes should bhe e cen:-r line and shall be numbered ooneectiv;ly, the center stake being No ptos;.ector is allowed to locate than one claim on a but he can acqui!e as as he chooses by purohase. e annual aesessment work shall be ormed within one year from the time aking the location, and shall consist of 'f) worth of labor improvements. The Sis very strict regarding this annual urditure and a detailed statement oi the f, . aworn to, must be recorded. Pros •t-.ors have filteen days from the time of ieaiiong a location to make a record of the fnct one day additional time for each ten miles his claim lies from the recordiun office. It is not necessary to file an Afti davit, or in fact to file any papers, the recorder can take down the description of claim on his record bock orally from the miner. The number of the free hainers' license should be placed on all his location ttakes and appear in all records that he makes. Apparentlv it coats a prospector more to ouerate in British Columbia than in the United State·. For instance, I man be eomes interested in that country and lo Ctes but one claim, the expenose for the .etr are es follows: Free miner's certifi cale, $5; recording claim, $2.50: recording eseeoument work affidavit, etc., $6; total, $13.50. This looks steep, but when it is taken into consideration that this money is used for the building of roads and trails and the goneral improvement of the coun try, the cost of prospecting and mining on that side of the border compares favorably with the United States. Parsons of either sex above the age of 1i years can procure free miners' certificates and hold mineral land. If a company is incorporated for the parpose of prospecting or mining in British Colombin and these articles of incorporation have been duly filed in the proper office, only one faee miner's certificate is necessary for such in sorporation. Great care should be taken by companies and individuals that their free miner's certifcate do not expire, for aehould they. all rights to mining claims are thereby for feited. A crown grant, which is the same as I patent on this side the line, can be obtainee after doing $500 wo:th of work and havin1 a survey made, or the owner of a claim car paurchase the eame for $25 per acre at an, time after having advertised his applicatioi for sixty days. If a claim on whichi a crown grant is obh tained is worked, there is no taxes to pay. but if it is allowed to lie idle the govern ment imposes a tax of d25 per year. I. Ii. K.
