The following Is the text of the Barrett
bill, as it was finally passed by the Ore
SECTION 1. Any person, a citizen of
the United States, or one who has declared
his intention to become such, who discov
ers a vein or lode of mineral bearing rock
in place upon the unappropriated public
domain of the United States within this
state, may locate a claim upon such vein
or lode discovered, by posting thereon a
notice of such discovery and location
which said notice shall centain: First,
the name of the lode or claim; second, the
name or names of the locator or locators;
third, the date of the location; fourth the
number of linear feet claimed along the
vein or lode each way from the point of
discovery, with the width on each side of
the said lode or vein; fifth, the general
course or strike of the vein or lode as
nearly as may be mid by defining it from
some prominent monument, mound or
land mark, and by detinig the boundaries
upon the surface of each claim so that the
same may be readily traced. Such boun
daries shall be marked within THIRTY
days after posting of such notice, by six
substantial posts, projfLting not less than
three feet above the surface of the ground,
and not less than tour Inches square or in
diameter, or by Mibstantlal mound; of
stone, or earth and stone, at least two feet
In height, to-ult: One Mich post or
mound of rock at each corner and at the
center of such claims.
SRC. 2. Such locator shall, within 60
days from and after the putting of the lo
cation notice by him upon the lode or
claim, tile for record with the recorder of 1
conveyances, if there be one, who shall
be the custodian of mining records and 1
miners' Ileus, otherwise with the clerk of ;
the county, wherein the claim is situated, f
a copy of the notice so posted by him
upon the load or claim, having attached 1
thereto an affidavit showing that the work 1
required to be done by section 3 of this j
act, has been done and perfoimeJ, and'
shall pay to the recorder or clerk a fee of j
f 1 for such record thereof, which sum the
recorder or clerk shall Immediately pay
over to the treasurer of such county and .
shall take his receipt therefor, as In the
case of other county funds coming into '
the possession of such officer. Such re-;
corder or clerk shall immediately record j
such location notice and the affidavit an-.
nexed thereto. No location notice shall
be entitled to record or recorded until the
work required by section 3 of this act has
been done and the affidavit in proof there-,
of is attached to the notice to be recorded.
SliC. 3. Before the expiration of sixty I
days from the date of thr posting ot the
notice of discovery upon his claim as
aforesaid, and before recording the notice
of location as required by section 2 of this
act, the locator must sink a shaft upon 1
the claim located to a depth of at least ten
feet from the lowest part of the rim of
such shaft at the surface, or deeper if ne
sessarv. to show by such work a lode or '
vein of mineral deposit In place. A cut or
crosscu' or tunnel width cuts the lode at j
a depth of ten feet or an open cut at least j
six feet deep, four feet wide and ten feet ,
In length along the lode from the point
where the same may be In any manner
discovered, Is equivalent to such discovery ,
shift. Such work shall not be deemed a
part of the assessment work required by
the Revised Statutes of the United States. I
The locator, or some one for him who did
work upon and lias Knowledge 01 me
facts relating to the sinking of the discov
ery shaft, shall make and attach to the
copy of the notice of location to be re
corded an aitiuavn snowing me compli
ance by the locator with the provisions of
ilik sec tlon. which affidavit shall be re-
corded with such copy of the location
SUC. 4. Inasmuch as the present law
prescribed an unreasonably short time for
the marking of the boundaries of mining
claims and imposes hardships upon per
sons discovering mining claims, an emerg
ency exists and this act shall take effect
and be in force from and after its approval
by the governor.
