"Keswick, April 19 The miners
and prospectors of Shasta county
on both sides of the Sacramento
river are much concerned over the
announcement that the railroad
company has advertised its inten
tion to apply for patents on odd
numbered sections ol its grant iu
this county. Sixtv days' notice is
given, during which time miners
must file their protests, establishing
ceedihgs to get a title thereto, the
federal mining law was enacted.
It provides no means for the pro
tection of the miner who sleeps
upon his rights. It expects him to
patent, lies iu the fact that all
feel as much concern touching the
ti.le to his mine as he does respect
ing the title of his other property.
In 110 other certain way than by his
application for a t alent is the gen
eral government put upon notice
that the miner has a location upon
the public domain. In no other
way than by and through his
patent application can .he general
government provide, specifically,
for the protection of the owner of
the location. 1 lie surveyor may
possibly, return that a mine exists
in a certain place, but, unless an
application for patent is made,
there is nothing of recoad to show
that the mine has not been worked
out- or abandoned , or that the
officers of the government ate not
at liberty to dispose of the ground
to the first comer. I repeat, the
government has no specific infor-

As I said in former commuiiica'

of it. It is not safe for the miner
to rely upon his mere location.

The above article, taken from
the Engineering Review, published
at San Francisco, should be read
carefully by every property holder
in Bohemia. The sooner a man
pockets tile deed to his mining
property the better. It lessens his
chances to become involved in liti
gation. It increases his oppor
tunities to dispose of his property
on short notice. It removes the
greatest drawback in the matter of
interesting outside capital. How
often do we hear the expression:
"We do not wish to buy a law
suit." Bohemia, iu years to come
if miners fail to take advantage of
the opportunity to patent their
ground, will be a network of lawsuits.
