Whilst the eyes  of the  civilized  world  arc  earnestly  fixed on   the  momentous and unexpected  events  which Jare  now tianspiring in   the  Celestial Kingdom, theie  seems  to  be a  general ignoiauce  prevailing  legarding  the causes which   have  led up to the  present  terrible  condition of affairs.    It has   all  come  around so suddenly that the general  run of people wonder what  it's  all  . about. It means, apparently, something like���China  for the Chinese  -and defiance to all the world. '  ��       The Chinese are the most exclusive people , mentioned  in   history.  -They  want nothing to do with' the  outside  world and only crave to be  1 left entirely to themselves, even --.o-  ,ing to the enormous trouble and expense of raising the famous wall to  'keep  out ' the   inland barbarians.  But .they  could uot  raise  a   wall  along  the coast to keep the sea-going   "foreign devils" out, and parts*  of their    sea-board  territory  have  been seized by the British,   French,  ���Russians and Germans".     Added to  all this, and worst of all,   was the  introduction   of - large  numbers  of  -Christian   missionaries   who  have  been proselytizing energetically for  3rears.    At every place which could  be reached, there was the  missionary  preaching the, to them, absurd  and   demoralizing    doctrines   that  women were possessed of souls and  other such damnable heresies. Children were being taken  away  from  their parents and taught of strange  gods at the missions,   and,   altogether,   the  Flowery   Kingdom  was  getting in  a bad  way.    To   counteract this, a society was   instituted  some  years   ago   under     a   name  which has been Anglicised for convenience into the "Boxeis."    This  society is a patriotic one,   and  aims  at running all foreigners out ot the  country.    The Empress  Dowager,  who is all potent iu China,* is  with  the movement hand and glove. The  German foicible occupation of Kiau  Chau and late   Russian   encroachments  have   denionstia<ed   to  the  patriots  the, necessity of immediate  action, and hence  the  present outbreak.  To judge impassively in any  quarrel, it is a good plan to look at  it from the other fellow's point of  view, to put yourself in his place,  as it were. To the Chinese "all  coons are alike" and come under  the general category of "foreign  devils." Feisonally, the white man  and his -ways are as distastful to the  Chinaman as his are to us. The  Chinaman also is proud and claims  that his ancient so-called civilization aud leligion are superior to  that of the foieign devils in every  way. Now, just suppose that we  here in Canada, for instance, -were  invaded by hundreds upon hundreds of Chinese missionaries using  every means-in their power to subvert Christianity. Also, suppose in  addition that China sent warships  and troops over and occupied Es-  quimalt,   Nanaimo  and Vancouver  without somuchas "by your leave,"  what would Canadians do about it?  Why, we would do exactly what  the Chinese Boxers are doing today and call it the highest 'patriotism. Nevertheless, the Chinese as  a nation must go under. They are  blocking one of nature's greatest  laws���the law of progression. Ev-  er}' nation now-a-days must fall -in  aud travel with the procession or  else   get   run   over   by   the  baud  >. w.  Sunday, Monday aud Tuesday  saw many visitors to the different  creeks and benches, representation  time having arrived.. The difference  from last season was very, striking.  Then/it was ten raeu to one claim;  now there seems to be more claims  than hands to man them.. As a result, Atlin is now, without doubt,  the most prosperous mining camp  in the Province. No man need be  idle who is fit and willing to' work.  Lots of payable claims can be had  for the recording or on easy lays,  whilst the hydraulic companies are  always open1 to engage men at  wages" from four dollars a- day upwards. Domestic help in,the hotels  is very scarce, and any "moderately  hancty woman can readily command  from  $60  to $75  per  month  and  board at-that class-of work.

A party of men were talking one  evening of the wonders .they :had  seen, but, a Yankee who was present yawned even at the most exciting tale. At length one of the  talkers sneeringly said that of course  he'would know of things more wonderful. ' '  "Waal," drawled the Yankee, "I  just do. But wc don't heed them  in Ameriky."  " You mean Niagara Falls, and  the Mammoth Cave and such  things?"  "Bah!" was the exclamation.  "We don't count caves, nor waterfalls, nor burning mountains, nor  boiling springs, though we can beat  creation with them. Say did you ever  hear of the petrified forest in Ari-  zony?���hundred of thousands of  acres of stone forests?''  "And the trees standing?"s -  , "Waal, I should say so; not only  standing but all in leaf, and some in  blossom,,and others full of nuts and  other fruit, all turned into stone."  "And I suppose there were birds  in the trees?"-said one sarcastically.  "Birds! No end of birds, sir, all  of the most beautiful plumage, and  all turned into stone. Even the  nests in the trees, aud the eggs iu  them, were petrified in the "most  wonderful manner you ever saw. I  see some of you fellows doubt me.  Waal, all I have to say is that I'll  take you there to prove it. I'll tell  you what I saw last time I was in  the petrified forest. There was a'hunt-  er who must have been in the forest  when the petrificaction took place, for  he was petrified too, and there he  stood, as straight as you please,  with a petrified gun to his shoulder  taking aim at a petrified bird. Why,  all was so natural that you could  see the shot and the smoke coming  out of the muzzle of the���"  "I've got you there!',' interrupted  one.

DOMINION DAY AT PINE.  Favored by the finest sort of weather, the celebration at Pine last  Saturday was a success from start  to finish. The weather was in fact  nearly too tropical for comfort. At  a conservative calculation over 600  people attended the sports. The Atlin delegates  showed  up  m   force,  Great Excitement at Skagway on  the Placing of Stock on the  Market���A Long Row of Buyers Anxious to Invest.  We learn that Skagway is very  much excited over the prospects of  the Engineer Group Mining Co. on  Taku Arm. The "Alaskan" of  the ^9th says: "There was considerable excitement through the  city yesterday from- the news that  the Engineer Group had been examined by expert De Roux and  pronounced a great deposit of rich  ore. __ The owners of the property  placed on sale a block of 30,000  shares of treasury stock at 10 cents  a share, and sold it all in four  hours. '  "The news of the richness oc the  property spread so rapidly, and  people became so anxious  to buy.  NOTICE.

Many friends attended to see Mr.  Stables off and wish him godspeed  in his new and responsible office.  He carries with him the solid good  wishes of every elector in Atlin  district, irrespective of party.  George Findlev, of Portage la  Prairie, arrived in last week. Mr.  Findley passed the winter at his  home iu Manitoba and returns to  look after his inteiests here. He  has several quartz locations and is  quite hopeful of coming out on top.  J. W. L-' McCraney left for his  home in Vancouver on Tuesday-  last. The old gentleman's health  has not been of the best lately and  he has concluded that his comfortable home, is, under the circumstances, to be preferred to camp  life. We much regret "Mr. McCraney's departure and hope his  health  will soon  regain its normal  state.    In any  case  his vfefufil  Atlin is very'uncertain.  Thomas Watts, lately in the employ of the Godfrey Hardware Co.,  whilst engaged in the construction  of the telephone extension,to Btfdi  Creek, had the tnisfortune to fall  from 11 pc-le on Monday last and  suffered some internal injury, -It is  to be hoped a few days' rest will  see Tom a-foot again.

Brownlee and  his daughter Eva. They look most  uncoirmonly well after their long  outing and report having'enjoyed  themselves immensely. Mr.-5 Brownlee did good missionary work in  talking up Atliu's resources whilst  in San Francisco and the other  coast cities.

Honor and glory  didn't count, apparently,   and   the  match " was   declared    off. , Three  light   teams, however,   didn't  disdain the day of small  things,   and  pulled like Trojans for the   nugget  pins  the    heavyweight 'teams despised, and now - Mr.   Fortin and his  tough team   wear' them  on   their  manly little bosoms.    The football  match, Pine v. Atliu, did not come  off owing to the latter's not having  a suitable pieee of ground, at least  that' was the ostensible reason", but  some   ill-natured   people hint that  the   awful   hammering the Atlins  got from  the  Pines on   Dominion  Day had something to do with it:  ' The ball in the A.
