Assessments on Mines.
The general land olllce has recently
corrected a very llagrant Inconsistency,
which has been In vogue there forsome
time in reference to securing patents
on mines, and in regard to the annual
assessment on mining claims. Hereto
fore It has been held that $100 worth of
work must be parformed on each claim
of a group or mi amount equal to that on
one or more claims of the group in or
der to hold them. But in the matter of
applying for patent it was held that a
group of contiguous claims might Ik;
embraced in one application and the
entire group patented on $500 worth of
work. Paragraph 53 of jho general
land olllce regulations, as approved De
eemlwr 15, 1897, reads: '"The claimant,
either at the time of filing these papers
with the t egister or at any time during
the sixty days' publication, is required
to file a certilicate of the surveyor gen
eral that not less than 5R) worth of
lalmr has been expended or improve
ments made ujkhi the claim, and if moi o
than one claim is included in the appli
cation that an amount equal to $500 for
each claim has been expended by the
applicant or his grantors; that the plat
filed by the claimant is correct; that
the field notes of the survey, as filed,
furnish such an accurate description of
the claim as will, if incorporated Into a
patent, serve to fully identify the prem
ises, and that such reference is made
therein to natural objects or permanent
monuments as will perpetuate and fix
the locus thereof." One of our con
temporaries, In commenting upon this,
sajs: "Those desiring to patent a group
of claims can no longer do all the de
velopment work on one claim, but are
required to make an expenditure of
not less than WOO for work orluborur
improvements on each lode of a group
of claims. The regulations of the gen
eral land olllce of the United States,
which were approved Decemlwr 15,
18'J7, now require that not less than
$500 worth of work or labor shall be
expended on improvements made upon
each lode of a group of claims before
entitled to patent." The paragraph It
self will.be seen does not bear the con
struction that this work must be done
'on each lode," but it sajs that "an
amount equal to $.00 for each claim in
the group lias lwen expended." Journal-Miner.
