Victoria Times : "Henderson's return )n New Westminster is a foregone conclusion. Certainly neither
Mann nor Held could defeat him. The
electors of New Westminster by an
overwhelming majority Intend to take
advantage of this opportunity of securing Cabinet representation. White
there is plenty of Opposition talk there
Is no organization and no enthusiasm."
A correspondent of the Nelson Tribune writes from New Westminster;
"The government will accept responsibility for the eight-hour legislation,
and will defend the same In the New
Westminster campaign. This will he
the ohlef Issue in the contest. If the
legislation has ruined the province,
and the people of Westminster are not
all fools, there should bo a verdict
Against tho government. It is safe to
say, however, that no such verdict
wiil be rendered."
Says the Nanaimo Review :���"-The
mine owners and kindred interests
have succeeded in getting Hon. Joseph
Martin out of the B. C. Cabinet - with
some little help from the gentleman
himself. These people bad been in tho
habit of ignoring mining laws and
regulations, and Martin does not make
the kind of attorney-general to bo
ignored. He got the eight-hour law
for metalliferous mines passed and got
it enforced, and they went for bis scalp
and got It. The labor interests promise to stand by Martin aud there Is
every prospect of Joseph continuing to
illuminate a little corner in B. C.
politics for a whilo yet."
The Nelson Tribune fittingly remarks: "Ex-Attorney General Martin has been up before the benchers of
the law society charged with prosecuting a law suit for a client on shares.
This in Jaw is called champerty and Is
against the rules of the law society.
It ti safe to say nine out of ten lawyers in British Columbia aro guilty of
iheoffonce with which Mr. Martin Is
charged; bat they nre wont to go farther than lie is charged with going.
He is only charged with asking half;
they take the whole. Probably It is
because Mr. Martin did not demand
the whole that he Is being proceeded

A property that hen attracted a good
deal of attention since its location lust
year is what is known as the MacLean
property. This -vas atruok by A. McLean and P. Nelson, while out prospecting last season, and lies in the
basin at the head of McLean Creek, a
tributary of the north fork of the
Spillimachene. This basin is situated
at the summit of the lofty mountain
iu which Knowlton, De Varrennes,
and McLean Creeks take their rise.
The head of the basin ia ono of the
most rugged rocky spot* to bo found
in the mountains, with its great bluffs
of quarteite, and maism of boulders
flung from the overhanging sky-aspiring peaks. Strong evidences of the
mineralised character of tho country
are afforded by the float to ba seen
lying among tlio rocks. Tlio writer.
crossed the summit from the Certainty
camp, and on reaching the summit the
stakes of tbe
olaim, owned by Messrs. Ntdaon and
McLean, may ba seen. The ledge on
which this property is located is some
seven foot in width, nnd showing evidences of copper mineralisation
throughout. It is as a gold proposition, however, that it appears to have
its value, assaying fairly well in the
precious metal. Further along tho
gulch is seeu the No. 1 post of the
claim which was considered to be the
most promising coppor location mado
In the district last year. A northern
extension, called the Cinnamon, has
also beon staked. To the .southwest
side of tho claim is a trap dyke with a
dip of il to tho East, and with a strike
of 80 degrees wcrt of north. Evidences
of the strong eruptive forces which
have beeu in operation here are afforded
by the fact thut toward.-! the lead this
trap dyko has been tilted over in an
opposite direction and shuttered,apparently by a lime dyko wbioh has been
thrown up. Thif lime dyko may be
seen crossing thi* country for miles.
Along this lime dyke Ue* the lead on
which tho Cinnamon and Good Luck
claims have been located. The mountain slo|>os at a low angle on tho
course of Lhe load, something like 25
degrees, but approached an angle of 45
to the southward. Although the lead

and thu f-uotwnll is found in contact
with tho lime dyke The width of tlie
lead ou the hanging wall side is 4 feet,
then there is a porphyrlttdintrtibion of
20 inches in width, and another stienk
of quartz l'i fuohei in width, tho ledge
thus presenting n total width of G-Jft.
On the hanging wall thore is a paystreak of solid chalcopyrite, carrying
from 2d to 30 per cent copper and $<i
gold. Thie paystreak runs from 5 to
15 inched in width, and shows some of
the nicest copper ore to be seen In tho
country. In addition to the work
already mentioned, open cuts have
boen made over another 50 feet of the
ledge showing a continuation of the
class of oro already referred to. The
No. 1 post of the Good Luck is at an
elevation of 7,000 feet above sea-level
and the highest cut is on the Cinnamon at au elevation of 7,700 feet above
sea level, Thero is thus 400 feet of
vertical ledge-matin- between tho two
points. The ledgo crosses the summit
still higher and M. Dninutd, who is
also Interested iu the other property,
has located a cliiin on the Canyon
Croek side of tho mountain. A trail
haa beon mndo this soason from the
north fork trail of Canyon Crock to
the saddle of the divide between the
north fork of tho Spilliiuacbeue and
the south fork of Canyon Creek. This
trail was curried out under the supervision of M. Dainard, and is au excel
lout piece of work. Wi h two miles
of trail constricted, this would connect the Good Luck and Ciunuiuou
claims with the Governmont trail.
Tho claims aro locatod at the head of
a nice basin, with plenty of grass in
summer, but at this altitude the summer Is necessarily short. Mr. Dainard
this week brought Into Golden somo
fine specimens of ore from thu property.
Caught in a Rock Slide.
The other day a man named Crom-
bie, well known at Field, went out
prospecting on the mountain behind
the town and expected to be away
about tbree hours. Not turning up
search was made for him but without
result, aud it was feared he bad fallen
down the mountain side and been
killed, or had beeu so disabled that he
was unable to help himself. F. Fields
went out tbree successive days to look
for him but without success and on
Wednesday particulars were sent to
Acting-constable Hamilton, who authorised a search for Crom bio. The
body was found, apparently dead some
time, byt we havo not yet learned the
Latah ���Crombie has been missing
since Sunday. He was apparently
crossing a rock-slide on the mountain
behind Field, when the rooks gave
way and swept him down tho mountain aide, almost burying tho body

THE TURN OF LIFE, its danders and sufferings.
Just as the healthy, robust girl passes in safety the critical period when the feminine
organism assumes its functions, so in later life the woman of regular habits and good
health passes without difficulty that trying time when menstruation ceases.
To the weak, nervous woman whose blood is thin and whose vitality runs low this
change of life is the beginning of misery and suffering. Instead of gradually growing less
the menses become irregular, the system is poisoned and deranged, and there are pains
and aches, despondency, nervous prostration, paralysis and insanity.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food
Is a' specific of unparalleled merit for the irregularities which are responsible for most
of the sufferings of women. This great restorative (in pill form) cures permanently by
making the blood rich, creating new nerve force and building up the system. It gives
new life and vitality to the body, invigorates the delicate feminine organs and restores the
color to the cheeks and roundness to the form. By weighing yourself while taking Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food you will note thte gradual increase, which tells of returning health
and strength.

Winnipeg, Aug. 9���The 103.000 stolen from the Molsou's bank here between the 28th of September and tbe
4th of October Inst year, have been recovered, and John W. Anderson, who
was employed as a junior clerk in tbe
bauk\at the time, iH lying in the provincial jail charged with having committed the robbery. Tbis robbery waa
oue of the great local sensations of last
year, and the events of tbe past couple
of days bave revived it in all Ita intensity.
Davis arrived here in March last and
secured employment as a clerk iu. tbe
establishment of Jerry Robinson & Co.
His first step in the olever detective feat
which be lias just achieved wai to ascertain where Anderson boarded, and
he then secured lodgings iu the same
plaoe uud became friondly with the
yonng man on whom hiB suspicions lu
some way bad become centred. Prior
to this Anderson had left tbe service of
the bank, resigning, it is said, on account of dissatisftioton with bis salary,
and taken employment with Stobart &
Co., and afterwards with the McOlary
Manufacturing company. Davis and
Anderson became very intimate friends,
and by degrees, it seems, the detective
completely installed himself iu Anderson's confidence and ultimately wormed
from him, according to rumor, some
important admissions or allusion to tbe
robbery, which confirmed bis belief in
the ex-ulerk's guilt. Davis spent bis
spare moments in adding link to link
of tbe chain of evidence which he was
slowly but surely winding around bis
man. One thing led to another until
Anderson was indiscreet enough to
visit tbe place where the money was
kept, with Davis on bis heels. Tbis
was on Bnnday evening, and on Monday afternoon, in company witb Mr.
Harry Whitla and a half a dozen Douk-
bobor laborers, wbo conld not speak a
word ot English, and who did not know
wbat they were employed for; Davis
weut to the place whore he had seeu
Anderson go, and after some little
search, the cash was discovered, and
after a few moments digging, tbe
stolen money was iu the possession of
the detective.
Manager Kohl, of the Molson's bank,
Mr. Archibald, solicitor; Mr. Davis,
and his lawyer, Mr. Whitla, were in
earnest consultation all Monday uight
and yesterday morning, with the result
that ft was decided to place Anderson
under arrest. Accordingly a warrant
was sworn ont by Davis, charging Anderson witb tbe theft of f03,000 from
tbe Wiuuipeg branch of the Molsou's
bank The warrant was placed in the
bands of Chief Elliott, ond Anderson
was arrested Tuesday afternoon.

trying every hole In the grating he
would quietly stop, lick tbe entire
grating clean of the grease and meat
