__ J Orangeville, IDAHO. j : AforsT 2 , is«.-, as as FRIDAY. ; THE XEIV M IS ISO LA W. It Might hr More Appropriately Termed "An Art to Enron r nge Mining Litigation ." When representative Rowton sent us last winter a printed copy of the Wyman Mining Bill, as re ported from the committee to the* House, we were so impressed with its crudities and many defects that in company with S. W. Smith, of Elk City, we sat up nearly all of one night and jointly drafted sev eral amendments designed to im prove the law, and make it clear, comprehensive, easily understood and effective, as the attorney-gen eral puts it in the subjoined letter. These amendments we forwarded to Mr. Rowton, requesting him to introduce them to the committee having the bill in charge, letter of the attorney-general indi cates that this was done, but that the intelligent committee simply paid no attention to anything or anybody but stubbornly stuck ti the text of the bill as originally reported. The subject of mining legislation was new to Mr. Rowton and he was unable to present it, and so the bill passed the House and finally became the law almost without dissent. As a result, the law is a farce and fraud, and seems designed more to encourage litiga tion, promote business for mining lawyers and to harass legitimate mining men and mining invest ments, rather than to simplify the mining code of the State. Under the present law locators of Kiü acre placer tracts are re quired to sink a ten-foot shaft on each and every 20 acres ! This is not only an imbecile provision per se, but it nullifies the mining laws of the United States. Ten foot holes must also be sunk, or tunnel driven, on each and every quartz location. The locator is allowed no discretion in the matter of de veloping his claim by adapting his work on his claim to its topograph ical or geologic features. As a re sult, 99 per cent, of the work re quired to be done on locations made tinder the new law is time, money and labor thrown away. One of the points contended for in our proposed amendments was that contiguous locators on the same lode should be permitted to con solidate their work for the joint development of their several claim's if they so desired. This, and that other general principle of mining law, that work may be done off the claim, if done for the development of the claim, has been brushed aside and ignored, and each locator must now sink his shaft or drive his tunnel according to the hard and fast rules proscribed by our legislative solons, rather than to let the locator do his work where it will promote the development and best interests of the claim. The intent of the law to prevent the location of lode and placer claims for speculative purposes is righteous enough ; but it is evident that the father of the bill knew nothing whatever of the practical exigencies of the situation. Litigation is bound to spring from it, as the blackmailers, blood suckers and claim-jumpers who infest every camp as soon as its claims have a value, will take ad vantage of the obvious impossibili ty of complying with the requir ments of the now law to harass owners of valuable ground into expensive litigation, or else extort ing blood-money to buy them off. The farmers of Camas Prairie may think that all this does not affect them ; but when they have to foot the bills for long terms of court wholly given up to mining litiga tion they will find that they have a very substantial interest in the matter, and also in seeing that their legislators do justice to legit imate mining interests. Up here in Idaho county we do not feel the evil effects of the new law so se verely as other counties, because we have not reached that stage of mining development where mines located under the new law are worth contending for;but neverthe less the law is a distinct detriment and menace to the mining interests of this young State, and it cannot be too soon modified in the partic ulars herein pointed out. We append herewith a letter on this subject which will be read with interest by our mining con stituency. Attorney Générai.'s Office, ) Boise City, Idaho. The O ed 5 I). 5 ) June 21, 1895. Messrs. Heffner & Richardson, Clearwater Post Office, Idaho Co., Idaho. Gentlemen :— Your letter of June 17 at hand in reference to the mining law pass ed last winter by the Legislature. The law referred to, like many others on the statute hooks, was very carelessly and hastily passed ; and without any examination into the details necessary to make such a law clear, comprehensive, easily understood and effective. In the desire of the legislature to place some restrictions upon lode loca tions, they overlooked the necessi ty of making the law of placer lo cations. dear and definite. The attention of the committee having the bill in charge in the House, was called to\he absurdity of the requirments ofSection 12, concern ing placer claims: but the bill P asH0<1 ' vitll01,t the necessary a-1 of mendmentB. It will, of course, be I j impossible to follow its directions v said but the law does not require the performance of vain things, or compliance with what would be absurdities. The Sections referred one to. '2 and 3, should be followed as closely as possible, and as closely as the «dissimilar conditions be tween lode and placer locations will permit. The corners of the claim should lie marked plainly ; the location described with certain ty. and with reference to natural objects, and the other provisions as stated in the Section, complied with as fully as possible. I am of the opinion that the re strictions of Section 8 of the new law are confined to lode claims, and was not intended to affect the of on to of at er in the of of ho, day D. the the are the of the win. p K. B. F. F. right of several parties to locate 160 acres of placer ground, as pro vided by the Statutes of the United States. Yours truly, Geo. M. Parsons. turn VOUXTY FA TUEES.

Corns, proceedings of Ida ho county, Idaho, at pages 20 and 21 of same) book, was reconsidered and the following order substituted therefor : In pursuance of the provisions of Chapter VI, Title XIII of the Re vised States of Idaho, as amended at the Third session of the Legis lature of the State of Idaho, ap proved March 8, 1895, the hoard of eounty commissioners of Idaho county, state of Idaho, made an examination into the financial con dition of the county aforesaid, and after examining the records and files of the board and the reports of the auditor and treasurer of the county, heretofore filed, find that there is an outstanding indebted ness as shown by warrants issued prior to the second Monday of April, A. 1). 1895, including inter est to October 1, A.

The board further finds that said warrants are drawing interest at the rate of seven (7) per cent, per annum, which the board believes could be funded by the issue of 1 «nids hearing interest not to ex ceed six (0) per cent, per annum. They also find that said war rants are not at par, thus depreci ating the credit of the counly, and causing those who furnish mater ials or perform services for the county to charge therefor so as to allow for the discount on said war runts tInis irrfMitl v innroiiuinir ttio Itinib, unis greiui> inert «ISlIlg me expenses oi the county: and fur . 1 * • 1 a c At thei that the Be^islaturc of the state of Idaho at the third session _ ii tU ll,c luiru m »»ion thereof, passed a revenue act, by the provisions of which whenever any county shall have warrants j outstanding unpaid, for the pay a r ...i ■ i At /• j ment Of which there are no funds in the county treasury, the board of county commissioners of such county, is required to levy a spe cial tax for the redemption and payment of said warrants. In view of the present financial depression the board deems it unwise to place j any heavier hardens on the tax payers of the county, and therefore in their opinion the best interests t of the county require that bonds j , , . . ,. lie issued to flllld the outstanding warrant indebtedness, and the board being fully advised iu the I premises : It is hereby ordered that a spe- j cial election be held for the purpose ■ ss ; lo ■ of submitting to the voter» of the I county the question of bonding the said county for the purpose afore-' said, said bonds to the amount of! 874,500.00 to lie issued as near as practicable in denominations of one thousand dollars each : or if necessary in denominations of live ; hundred ($500) dollars and one ; hundred (8100) dollars each; the same to bear interest at a rate not to exoeep six (6) per cent, per an num, to be paid on the first days of January and July in each year, at the office of the county treasur er of said county, or at such bank in the city of New York as may be designated by the board of county commissioners.
