thousand dollars were offered for the
mines and $800 for the mill and ma
chinery. On Saturday of last week the
question of the priority of liens as be
tween Jones & Otten, the attaching
creditors, and the laborers on the mine,
was argued before Judge Hanna. The
judge held that the miners’ liens took
effect from the date of the beginning of
work. Consequently the claims of
Jones & Otten become sub-ordinate to
the other claims, and the effect of the
sale on Saturday last must be to compel
the purchasers to satisfy the liens of the
men. It is understood that Jones &
Otten will at once pat the mine and mill
to work.—Grants Pass Journal.
