COLUMBIA MINING LAWS.
We, the Minora of the Columbia
Mining District, working under suffer
ance of the Government of the United
State, do, upon this Ist day of October,
1853, enact the following Laws for the
government of the mines within said
District:
Article 1. The Columbia Mining
District shall hereafter be considered to
embrace all the territory included within
the following bounds, viz: beginning at
a point upon the upland, adjoining the
south fork of the Stanislaus River, oppo
site the “ Paso del Pino,” running in an
easterly direction, in a line parallel with
and including the ravine known as Ex
perimental Gulch, to the head of said
gulch ; thence following the height of
land, so sis to include Yankee Hill dig
gings, to a point within fifty feet of
Wood’s Creek: thence down said creek
to the road leading from Saw Mill Flat
to Kelley’s Ranch ; thence north-west
erly to a spring on a gulch running
southerly from Santiago, which spring
is the easterly corner of the Springfield
district; thence in a direct line to the
site of McKenney’s old store; thence in
a direct line to the Lawusdale Saw
Mill; thence following the height of
land around the head of Saw Mill Gulch,
so called, to the head of Dead Man's
Gulch ; thence following a small ditch
of the Tuolumne County Water
Company to the point where it in
tersects with the Gold Hill ditch ; thtJhce
in a direct line to the head of *’ux
Gulch; thence down said gulch, in a
line parallel with and including it, to a
point within five hundred feet of the
south fork of the Stanislaus : thence a
long the upland adjoining the south
fork, to the place of beginning.
Art. 2. A full claim for mining pur
poses on the flats or hills in this dis
trict, shall consist of an area equal to
that of one hundred feet square. A
full claim on ravines si all consist of one
hundred feet running on the ravine, and
of a width at the discretion of the claim
ant, —provided it does not exceed one
hundred feet.
Art. 3. No person shall hold more
than one full claim within the bounds
of this district; nor shall it consist of
more than two parcels of ground, the
sum of the area of which shall not ex
ceed the area of one full claim ; pro
vided that nothing in this article shall
be so construed as to prevent miners
from associating in companies to carry
on mining operations; such companies
holding no more than one full claim to
each member.
Art. 4. A claim may be held until
three days after water can be procured
at the usual rates, by distinctly marking
its bounds by ditches; by sinking a
ditch its entire length, suitable for tom
ing purposes, and for draining the ground;
or by the erection of good and sufficient
stakes at each corner, with a notice on
each end of the claim, indicating the
intention of the parties holding it, fol
lowed by the names of the claimants in
their own hand writing.
Art. 5. When a party has already
commenced operations upon a claim, and
is obliged to discontinue for want of wa
ter, or by sickness or unavoidable acci
dent, the presence upon the ground of
the tom aud sluices, or such machines
as arc employed in working the claim,
shall be considered sufficient evidence
that the ground is not abandoned, and
shall serve instead of other notice ; the
bounds of the claim still being defined,
except so far as the marks may have
! been obliterated by the w’ork that has
j been performed.
Art. 6. Claims shall be forfeited
when parties holding them have, neg
lected to fulfil the requirments of the
preceding articles, or have neglected
working them within three days after
water can be procured to work said
claims, at the usual rates, unless pre
vented by sickness or unavoidable acci
d nt, or unless the miners shall have
provided by special law to the contrary.
Art. 7. Earth thrown upHhr the
purpose of extracting the gold
shall not be held distinct from the claim
from which it was taken but shJdl con
stitute part and parcel of such claim,
and shall be deemed equivalent to the
number of superficial feet contained in
the excavation ; such earth may be held
for the space of six months from the
excavation, by surrounding it with loose
stones, chapparal bushes or other agen
cies, and by the erection of a stake in
the center, bearing a notice indicating
the intention of the party holding it,
followed by the name of the claimant in
his own hand writing.
Art. 8. Earth thrown up under cir
cumstances detailed in article 7th of the
laws, and in conformity with the provis
ions of said article, shall be held as pri
vate property, and parties trespassing
upon the-same, shall be deemed guilty
of petty larcenv, and upon due convic
tion tion, shall be punished accordingly.
Art. 9. Water flowing naturally
through gold bearing ravines, mny not
be diverted from its natural course with
out the consent of parties working npon

shall be held subject to a requisition
from any parly interested.
