The following article ia clipped J
from the Pacific Miner of March 15. j
! contributed by I. II. Fiskc. the
well known assayer, and may be of
interest to Bohemia locators:
When you stake your claim off
I remember that not one claim in
fifty are full size. Prospectors
nearly always step them off, and
count three feet to a step, when
2j4 feet is nearer correct. The
best way is to take a tape line if
you have one. If not, figure your
steps at 2j4 feet, and don't be
afraid of getting too much ground,
for when you have your claim sur
veyed for patent, the surveyor will
draw your stakes in if they are too
wide, but he will not push them
out if they are too narrow. The
survey must be made inside your
stakes. A compas is a very good
instrument to have along so as to
get your claim as nearly located
square as possible. Very few
claims are located where the lines
, turn at right angles. When sev
' eral claims are located together it
! is proper to use one post for the
! corner of two claims, instead of
'cutting a post for each claim corner.
' If you wish to join claims with
'someone else's claim you have a
i right to use his post for a corner
alsc. I have known some old
prospectors to locate two claims to
gether and cut a post for each and
set them side by side, when one
' post with the name of each corner
Ion it would do as well. Besides,
when your claims join it does not
make any difference if they join by
only a foot of ground, but they
must join. It makes them .con
tinuous claims, and you can do all
your work on one flaim to repre
sent them all. If you wish to
patent them, $500 worth of work is
sufficient to patent them all as
though they were one claim. It
costs about $250 to patent a claim,
besides the $500 worth of work
you must do before you make ap
plication ior a patent. You can
make application to the surveyor
general, atid pay him $30 and he
grants it. If you have several
claims in a group you apply for
each separately as a continuous
claim, and pay $30 for each. Then
the surveyor charges you about $75
to do the work. He must be a
deputy United States mineral sur
veyor. You pay about 20 for ad
vertising, and the land office fee
will be about $128, but all this is
not necessary unless you are going
to sell your claim and ajjree to fur
nish a good title. Representation I
and possession by working the
claim annually is as good as a

The fifth annual meeting of the
International Mining Congress will
be held at Butte, Mont., frohi the
8th to the t2th of September next,
atid it promises to be an important
meeting for the mining interests of
the Pacific coast, especially in view"
of the efforts now being made to
have a Mining Bureau established
as a subordinate brapch of the In
terior Department of the govern
The mining interests and re-
sources of Oregon are very extent
sive, but are not receiving the at
tention they should receive from
her citizens. Why this ifiactife"
lethargic state on the part of Ore-
gonians, is more than can well be
understood by the average citizen.
This meeting of the International
Congress is a very important one
as questions of great importance are
to be discussed.
Oregon so far has not joined in
the effort nor signified her willing
ness to take part in tbe Congress,
although Colorado, California, Ida
ho, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico,
Wyoming, Montana and Washing-'
ton have all expressed themselves
and made preparation to take part
This is a very strange condition of
affairs. Oregon is evidently asf
rich in "mines as most' of' tEose
above named, but su far has been
content to remain in the rear. She
seems to have gone away back ami
sat down; not because she hasn't
the resources but because her pub
lie men are, presumably, more in
terested in some other business,
But it now seems that she is about
to awaken. The miners through
out the -state have worked inces
santly for many years under great
difficulties and have opened up, ift
many places, ledges of inestimable'
v. le. thereby forcing notice, and as
a result of these individual efforts
Oregon is going to experience
great mining boom. Delegates, we
understand, will be sent to the In
ternational Congress ami we will
be in the lead ere long.-
Experimental stations nrainfafnetf
by the government to assist the
mining industry in the same manner
in which the agricultural industry
is assisted is perfectly within the'
scope of the government, and
should be encouraged. As an ex
ample, the instance of the largev
amount of low grade refactory ores1
which now cannot be profitably"
handled might be cited, i'fiv'ate"
individuals are all the time' experi-'
menting to perfect a process-where-"
by this ore can be made profitable.
Many of these experiments- fail be
cause the inventor has not sufficient
money to go ahead with them and
is unable to interest capital in his:
scheme. Here is an opportunity
for valuable national or state aid and
would be work such as should be"
undertaken by a national- depart
ment of mines and mining. There'
are other and similar suggestions
which could be made and all fair-
minded men must admit tbat such?
legislation would benefit 1101(5111
those directly interested ni the
mining industry but many otlief
forms- of business-.
If the Jennings Bros-. oiriM their
proposed smelter hi Portlandi tis

should" not fesf until' somebody else"
takes bold of this lmportate enter
prise. The East Helena" smelter
pays out $1,200,000 per year in
wages. A Portland smelter would
pay ouf at least half as much.
