The bill was introduced in the

for the annexation to tho southern

half of mineral land. Mr. Kdwards
introduced tho bill on petition of
the owners and mines and the oper ators
of the properties, who desire
to withdraw from Jackson County
for tho reason that tho railroad in

time these people were instructed
to use roads constructed by Lano
County and a braueh railroad that
has been built to a point within o
miles ot the mines.
