Washington D C June 7rThe
House Committee on Mines and Min
ing has submitted a favorable report
on the bill introduced by Hon Carl
Hayden of Arizona to change the
period for doing assessment work on
unpatented mining claims from the
calendar year to the fiscal year end
ing June 30 Hon Marion E Rhodes
of Missouri the Chairman of the Com
mittee in reporting the Hayden bill
made the following statement
The sole object of this bill is to
change the time for performing the
work required to be done annually ont
unpatented mining claims from ine
calendar year to thefiscal year such
change to begin at midnight of July
1 1921 Every portion of the mining
laws will remain the samo except that
the 12 months within which such work
must be done will begin on July 1 and
end on June 30 of the following year
instead of beginning on January 1
and ending on December 31 of each
It is the usual and natural tendency
of all persons to postpone doing any
thing which must be done in a limited
time until Tjear the close of the period
For this reason the major portion of
the work done on unpatented mining
claims under existing law is delayed
until the months of November and De j
cember after the weather has become
cold in the mountain regions In the
higher altitudes it is often impossible
to reach many mining claims in the
winter season on account of the heavy
sn6wfall There has consequently
been a demand for a change in the
period for doing assessment work
from the calendar to the liscal year
so that the last two months will be
May and June when the climatic con
ditions are more advantageous The
testimony before your committee
shows that this bill has the approval
of the great majority of persons en
gaged inmining and prospecting and

Mrs Smith Its FLATCOTE Teeommended byour

that we can always keep it just as it is I think a dingy wall
S just hlh a living room but this FLATCOTE can be kept fresh
and spotless with a little mild soap and water Think of it
A living room wall that is always bright and cheerfull
And Mrs Jones asked roe all about FLATCOTE Sbewas
Surprised that it was being used so extensively It is made in 24
colors and white She was especially interested to know that
FLATCOTE could be applied over old walls as well as new
over ola wall paper ouriap or Kaisomme
I never knew a woman in my Ufe that wasnt
delighted with FLATCOTE J

Babbitt Brothers Trading Co
of Nevada in February 1921 passed
by a unanimous vote a memorial to
Congress urging the enactment of leg
islation which will provide that the
period in which annual assessment
work shall be done between the 30th
day of June of one year and the 1st
day of July of the succeeding year
Only two objections have been made
to this change in the mining law It
is said that there is a demand for
farm labor in May and June which
does not exist in November and De
cember The fact is that in the moun
tain regions of the West the harvest
season does not begin until after July
1 so that there will be ample time
for men who have been doing assess
ment work to go down into the irri
gated valleys and assist in gathering
thfi crons The other objection comes
from Alaska where it is said that
prospecting and assessment worK can
best be done when the ground is
frozen The enactment of this bill
will benefit the Alaskan prospectors
and claim owners by extending the
time in which to do assessment work
from December 31 through the winter
months of January and February and
until the ground thaws out in the
spring It is therefore the opinion
of your committee that no exception
should be made for mining claims lo
rntpd in Alaska but that the opera
tion of the laws should be uniform
By various acts of Congress the
annual requirement of 100 worth of
work on unpatented mineral claims
was suspended for the calendar years
1917 1918 and 1919 The act appiov
ed December 3l 1920 Public No
290 did not relieve the owners
of such claims from -this requirement
but merely extended the time for do
ing the assessment work of 1920 to
July 1 1921 It was distinctly under
stood at the time this act we passed
that no further exemptions from as
sessment work would be granted and
that nil minintr claims on which siicn
work has not been performed will be
1921 The six months extension oft
time however makes the enactment
of the legislation proposed in this bill
most opportune
Mr Hayden introduced the follow
ing bill which was referred to the
Committee on Mines and Mining and
ordered to be printed
Changing the period for doing annual
assessment work on unpatented claims
from the calendar year to the fiscal
year ending June 30 each year
Be it enacted by the Senate and
House of Representatives of the Unit
ed States of America in Congress as
sembled That section 2 of An Act
to amend sections 2324 ani 2325 of
the Revised Statutes of the United
States concerning mineral lands ap
proved Januarry 22 1880 be and the
same is hereby amended to read as
Sec 2 That section 232 lof the
Revised Statutes of the United States

eral claims located since May 10 1872
including such claims in the Territory
of Alaska shall commence on the 1st

cation of such claim Provided fur
ther That on all such valid existing
