We agree with the views exprcssecd in the dissenltiig opinion filed in this cause-that there is no ground to clisturb the findings of fact made by the trial court.' " The history of this case is well known to imost people in Iutte. The Butte & lioston boulght half of the Snohomish and two thirds of the Tramway from James L.arkiil, an oldl prospector. Ileinze bought the remainder of Iboth claims from l.arkin's Ipartner, William McNanlarra. [The Butte & llorton comnpany brought a suit to plartition the claiits. Heinze de fenllded the suit on the ground that he owned hotl mines in toto, alleging that he had purchased the Larkin interests from L.arkin's heirs. hle took the ground that I.arkil's deeds to the Ilutte & Boston were ilnvalid, claimling that Larkin was insane and incomipetent to sell his property at the time the liutte & Iloston company ,bought the interests from himl. Larkin had died in ani inlsane asylum. Hleinze was compelled to go to trial in the United States court before Judge Knowles. the fact that the Butte & Bos ton comp.nly was a New York corporation prevecltinlg him front getting it into the district court. Judge Knowles referred the case to Judge Blake, master in chancery, and Blake found for the Butte & Boston company. Judge Knowles approved the finding and Ileinze appealed to the circuit court of ap peals, which has just decided against him and affirmed Blake and Knowles. In this case John S. Harris was ap pointed receiver and workeu the property till September, 1zgo, when the circuit court of appeals ordered him to cease oper ations. Part of the proceeds were dis tributed to Heinze by Mr. Harris. HIe took out of the claims about $35o, noo, net profits, and Ieinze was paid his share. The balance, about $o05,oo0, will now be paid to the Butte & 3Boston com pany, and in all probability the partition of the property asked by the Butte & Bos ton, blocked by Heinze's defense, will now take place soon. Heinze objected to the stipend allowed the receiver in this case of $5oo a month, and to the compensation of Harris' attor ney at $75 a month. WHY MOTHERS WORRY Did you ever hear a mother worry over a plump child? There is no better bank of health for a child to draw from than a good supply of healthy flesh.

Raleigh was arrested this morn. ing on the charge of obtaining money un der false pretenses. It is alleged that Raleigh secured pay twice for a sidewalk laid in front of the property owned by G. Z. Adams. Raleigh was brought before Judge Boyle yesterday on the same charge, but was dis. missed for lack of proof. A further in vestigation was made today. The complaint alleges that Raleigh was engaged to lay a sidewalk for Adams for which he was paid; also that Raleigh fur nished the city engineer an estimate of the work done, which was passed on by the council and a warrant ordered drawn. When the city levied on Adams' prop erty for the payment of the walk, Adams refused to pay and caused the arrest of Raleigh, Raleigh says that it is all a mistake and that 'he has received pay only once for the sidewalk.
