ACT OF MAY 11, 1853, IN RELATION TO PERSONAL MORTGAGES. SECTION 1. A mortgage for a good and valuable consideration upon possessory claims to public lands, all buildings and improvements upon snch lands, all quartz claims, and all other such personal property as shall be fixed in its structure to the soil, acknowledged in manner and form as mortgages upon real estate are required by law to be acknowledged and recorded in the office of the recorder of the county in which the property is situated, shall have the same effect against third persons as mortgages upon real property.


SECTION 1. Chattel mortgages may be made on the following property to secure the payment of just indebtedness. Upholstery and furniture used in hotels and public boarding-houses, when mortgaged to secure the purchase-money of the identical articles mortgaged, and not otherwise; mining claims, saw-mill, gristmill, and steamboat machinery; tools and machinery used by machinists, foundrymen, and other mechanics; steam-boilers, steam-engines, printing-presses, and other printing materials; possessory claims on the lands of the state, with the improvements thereon ; quartz claims, with the machinery and buildings connected therewith; water-ditches, flumes, and aqueducts; tunnels, cuts, and other improvements in mining claims; instruments and chests of a surgeon, physician, or dentist, with their professional library, and libraries of all other persons; stock in any incorporated company. No mortgage made by virtue of

this act shall have any legal force or effect (except between the parties thereto), unless the residence of the mortgagor and mortgagee, their profession, trade, or occupation, the sum to be secured, the rate of interest to be paid, when and where payable, shall be set out in the mortgage, and the mortgagor and mortgagee shall make affidavit that the mortgage is bona fide, and made without any design to defraud or delay creditors : which affidavit shall be attached to such mortgage.

Sec. 2. All mortgages made in pursuance of this act (with the affidavit attached) shall be recorded in the county where the mortgagor lives, and also in the county where the property is located; provided, that property in transitu from the possession of the mortgagee to the county of the residence of the mortgagor, or to a location for use, shall, during reasonable time for such transportation, be considered as located. It shall be the duty of the county recorders of this state to provide proper books of record and of index, in which they shall make a true copy or record of all mortgages made in pursuance of the provisions of this act and left with them for record, and they shall enter, in alphabetical order, the names of the mortgagee and mortgagor in such index books. The recorders shall note on the mortgages and in the index books the time (in like manner as mortgages on real estate) when the same was received into the office for record, and the recording shall take effect from that time. The recorder's fees for recording and indexing shall be the same as are allowed him by law for like services for recording deeds of real estate, to be paid in advance by the person presenting the same for record.

Sec. 3. No chattel mortgage shall be valid (except between the parties thereto) unless the same shall have been made, executed, and recorded in conformity to the provisions of this act; provided, however, if the mortgagee receives and retains the actual possession of the property mortgaged, he may omit the recording of his mortgage during the continuance of such actual possession.

Sec. 4. A right of redemption shall remain in the mortgagor until the same shall have been foreclosed by due process of law, or by agreement between the parties to the mortgage; which agreement shall be entered on the record of the mortgage, and for.
