The ground is already involved in lltl
nation and the matter will enme up for re
view before Judge Clancy next Saturday
The ground was originally located by a
Genu. in named Met, who lor years has
lived In th.it neighborhood. A few weeks
ago he made a proposition to a man to do
the annual assessment work, for whkh he
would give a half interest. The bargain
was made. Only a discovery hole ex
isted on the claim, and this man sank the
sh.ilt twenty-si feet deep. At this depth
he encountered the wonderful rich ore.
When Met saw the glittering gold lying
hi ill. inks in the quirt, It is saiJ here
fused point blank to give up the half in
terest. He is quoted as siiiig he would
not give it to his own brother. A third
person h is become interested, namely, D.
D. Mitiregnr, ot So'ith Montana street,
and he will assist his friend in asserting
his right to the half Interest as promised.
