But this would not occur if the locator were following a lode parallel to one previously located and say, therefrom, so that it is very much safer to establish all the corner monuments, this method having the additional advantage of defining the direction of the end lines, which is left open to interpretation in the other case, unless it is plainly stated that they are to be at right angles to the lode line. The following remarks will therefore apply only to claims having all corners established, except where they are evidently applicable to other locations also. It may seem a very simple matter to make a lode location after finding ore--just measure off 1,500 ft. and set the corner posts--but there are many points to be considered, if we want to secure the full privileges granted by the mining laws. Should there be any mistake in the form or direction of the original location, and adjacent claims be taken either endwise or laterally before the mistake is discovered, it will be too late to remedy the defect by a new location; as, for instance; if the direction of the lode line as located does not follow the lode, which may be found to run diagonally across the location, and pass out of the side instead of the end lines. In such a case the side lines become the end lines, making the location on the lode much shorter than if the lode ran lengthwise of the claim. To avoid such errors, which may...
