ment in the case of Bellows et al,
owners of the Champion mine : It is
held that the party who entered the
land under the homestead laws and re
ceived a patent therefor acquired no
title to the known mines therein.
The owners of such mines may make
application for a patent the same as
though no homestead entry had been
allowed covering their claims. All
mines located in the Black Hills, Dako
ta Territory, should be recorded, to
fully insure them in regard to title.
Therefore where such locations were
made prior to the ratification of the
treaty, to-wit: February 28, 1877, in
the case of Mull vs. Rolls A Ross, it is
held that where the land has t>een re

a township plat, but the township is
afterwards withdrawn as mineral land,
the burden of proof is shifted upon the
agricultural claimant, to show no min
