CERTIFICATE OF SALE. On the application of Mr. Gitto3, solicitor, the Warden granted a certificate under the Mining Companies Act, sanctioning the sale of the City of London Gold Mining Company's property. SURPLUS GROUND APPLICATIONS. The effect of the Warden's judgment in the case of King No. 2 application, heard at Paeroa en Tuesday last, is that plaints for surplus ground are disposed of, and that in future anyone desirous of obtaining the surplus of a pegged area will have- to peg out and apply for the whole ground in the ordinary manner. In consequence of this ruling all applications for surplus ground that would have otherwise been brought before the Warden to-day to be dealt with were adjourned until next Court day in order that the applicants might consider their position. THE KAURI TIMBER COMPANY. During the hearing of an application today for the granting of a water-race at Tairua, which was objected to by the Kauri .Timber Company, the Warden stated that the latter company had been granted such extensivo water-rights all over the district that it was now almost impossible to get anv water for mining purposes. He said the company was seldom represented in court, and when it was represented it never adduced any evidence. He did not kuow whether the company had an object in pursuing such a policy, but he would advise applicants whose applications were opposed by the company to communicate with the company's solicitor as to what they intended doing in the matter, and if no steps were then taken to sustain the objection he (the Warden) would feel himself entitled to deal with the applications. MISCARRIED PLANS. During the proceedings of the Warden's Court to-day the Warden auuouueed that a number of plans for licensed holdings and special claims that should have come before him that day for the purpose of being dealt with had been by mistake forwarded on to Paeroa, and as they had only been returned to the Thames latu on the previous eveuihg they consequently had not been received the stipulated 24 hours before the sitting of the Court. He had been considering what was best to be done in the matter, and bad come to the conclusion to adjourn the application until to-morrow (Friday), when he would take all the evidence required in connection with them, but would refrain from either granting or recommending them, as the case might be, until the 13th of August. This course, His Worship said, would do away with the necessity of the applicants being present on the last mentioned date. The applications affected by the above are as follows:—Londonderry No. 2 licensed holding ; Southern Reefs licensed holding; Puru Consols special claim; Matura Extended licensed holding; Gaelic special claim; Rob Roy special claim, and Old Cardigan Extended special claim. Whilst the above matter was under consideration, Mr. Baume drew the Court's attention to the necessity that existed for all plans being received at the Warden's office at least three clear days before the day of hearing, instead of 21 hours, as was therecognised rulo at present time. He considered three days was none mo muoh at the present time on account of the rapid manner ground was being taken, and the danger that existed of encroachment, which necessitated greater care being exercised in looking over the plaus before they were dealt with. Both Messrs. Miller and Clendon, however, expressed their belief that two clear days would be sufficient for the purpose, aud eventually His Worship said he would make it a rule henceforth thatall plaus, whether for special claims, liceused holdings, water-races, machine sites, or residence sites, should be lodged at tlio Warden's Office at least 48 dear hours before the day of hearing, which rule he would apply to all the districts over which he had jurisdiction, viz., Thames, Coromandel, and Kuaotunu. ' PROSPECTING AREAS. Extended prospecting areas at the Great Barrier Island were to-day granted by WardeiiKenny to the undermentioned pot sons, viz., Win. 15, Coßuar, Win. Elliott, Frank Amodeo, A. K. Jowitt, Joseph Thome, Herbert Gentles, Edmund Manony, P. A. Stein, M. T. N. Bluck, George Elliott, John Kneebone, Thomas Kneebone, and Edward Foster. Mr. J. A. Miller and Mr. Mahony (of Auckland) appeared on behalf of the applicants,
