Edwards who at that time held a claim on the said Stock Creek, which according to the laws of the District is not legal. Further for the reason that on or about the 7th day of July 1900, the name of M.V. Edwards was scratched out of the original location notice and the names of Chas. Mayman, and Ed Maddox placed thereon. By reason of the staking of this claim by M.V. Edwards, this claim was covered up and legitimate prospectors were deprived of their just rights. The said M.V. Edwards still holds an interest in said claim. All of which I am prepared to establish before the court. Having located the said claim on the 10th day of July 1900 in good faith and with the intention of developing and working the same, I therefore protest against and warn all persons especially M. V. Edwards, Chas. Mayman, Ed Maddox and Thos. Hunt from entering upon said claim to do any work or take anything therefrom.” 9/5/1900, VMDR, 1900, p. 209; Location notice by Dempsey, J. Miller, H.
