This inay  soiitid a hold prophecy I'or ;i district  which today probably contains a  population somewhere between fifty  .mil seventy-five t hous.ind, but if one  looks buck to the progress made by  ICootenav within the last ten yens  ,iiid by tlie whole of British Columbia  and western Canada within the past  twenty, it does not appear _so very  i'XtriLvagiiul.

That is to say  that, certain of our prominent milling  men have been invited liy the government through the gold commissioners  to present their opinions 011 the  working of the mining acts to that  hody. Now the mining statutes of  this province are pieces of legislation,  whicli if not perfect, are at all events  the products of considerable and  careful hammering out and the hulk  of their provisions have been derived  through various sources from the  actual customs and ideas of milling  men nnd prospectors themselves. Tiie  more they are studied the less appear  to be the changes, which it is desirable  to make in them. Those that seem to  be required are hardly ever the ones  which commend themselves to eager  theorists in editorial or official chairs  at Victoria. In fact the main prayer  of the mining men of-Kootenay is that  for Heaven's sake the legislature shall  stop tinkering with the mineral act.  There are a few amendments, which  might be made, a clause or so stiuck  out, a clause or so altered. Thu act  should lie made as favorable to the  bona fide prospector and mining man  und us discouraging to the claim  jumper and mining shyster as possible.  Regulations of a vexatious or impossi-  li ii nature should lie stiuck out 01  amended. There are one or two of  tliis nature. Beyond that the mining  miiimisMon, mining committee and  legislature Iind bettur leave, the act  severely alone.  Calgary Industrial Exhibition.

Robbery was undoubtedly committed, and  it was not the fault o������ the perpetrators that the crime of minder is not  also to ho laid to their charge.  Although the occurrence took place  Hourly a week' ago, The Herald at  tho request ot the chief of police refrained, from* muklng the facts known  so that no obstacle should be placed  In the way of the authorities'In'locating nnd arresting the perpetrators of  the outrage.  The  facts  arc   simply    those.      A  young man named lSugcne McClelland  who had been employed for somo time  at tho C. P. 11. depot, got into casual  conversation   with   si" stranger   whom  he met on tho platform on the forenoon  of Thursday lust.    After    some  talk about the weather and thc general appearance of the city the stranger   talked   about,  the   probability    of  securing employment and McClelland  staled with a confident air of   financial soundness that as far as he was  concerned he didn't care whether he  did any work for a couple of mnoths  or so, as he luul just received    $150  from   the: United   States in addition to  his own savings.    The stranger made  no comment and they parted.  Later in the day, the stranger, who  needed" change for a $10 bill,  seemed  to be unable to get.lt at any of thc  banks or'"fro'm any of the mercantile  establishments  In  the  city,   and   was  obliged   to   approach    young   McClelland to see if ho could oblige him.   Of  course he could,  with  pleasure, : and  the innocent young man produced his  wad  from  his vest pocket and   took  two "V's"  off the top for  his  nowly  found friend, which he exchanged ,for  an  "X"  and  replaced    his  money  in  pocket.    They had some further conversation in the course of which McClelland  stated that  he  slept    in    a  room over the dining hall  ���������thoy. parted.  Nothing more took place till about  bedtime when McClelland was not a  little; surprised on reaching the door  of the building where he slept, to find  tho stranger awaiting him. His presence was explained by the fact that  it was too early lo go to bed. tho night  was fine, he had been suffering from  a headache and he suggested a stroll  before retiring. McClelland was  willing and llio two walked eastward  Winnipeg, Sep. 5:      -  G.   J.   Clutton,   of  a    Toronto   loan  company, is misai-ag, and a warrant is  being sworn out for his arrest.

Other   cattle   finished    on  frrass   and "entirely   grass   fatted,   inferior stock,    were hustled    out while  the prices were up.

On examining him; closely,  they found young McClelland gagged  and handcuffed groping his way hack  to town. They placed him In the rig,  released his bonds and drove him to  the police station/Ills mental condition was such that it was impossible to get any Information from hlra  a. to what had happened to reduce  him to sticha condition. About noon  the following day McClelland recovered possession of his faculties and  was able to tell his terrible story.  Chief English at once began an investigation.Having secured, all the  information��������� and it was not a''great  deal���������that McClelland could, give him,  he went to work to discover the perpetrators of the outrage. Hotel registers, boarding houses and other places  were carefullyexamined to find some  trace of ',_e men who were so badly  wanted. Telegrams were despatched  nil over the country and It was believed that a clue had been'* obtained  at Medicine Hat. The matter was an  exceedingly difficult one to deal with  as the Identity of one of the men  was altogether unknown and a more  or less accurate description of tiie  other man wm all that wasavallablc.  An arrest was marie yesterday evening by the chief which may throw  some light on the occurrence. A man  who arrived from the west on the east  bound express was standing on tile  platform and in thc opinion of Chief  English answered the description of  one of tho men ho was looking for.  After a careful scrutiny the chief determined to arrest him on suspicion,  and. made himself known. A moment  afterwards McClelland, who was near  by. walked up and pointing lo tho,  man with whom the Chiof was in conversation, and said "That is the man:  no mistake." The man. who gave his  name as Williams, was at once arrested and lacked up. He was charged  before Police Magistrate Smith this  afternoon.

Shanghai, Sep. 4.���������Despatches announcing that the American government refuses to agree to the withdrawal of the troops from Pekln before  satisfaction for the outrages and: the  loss of its subjects have been received  here, and arc applauded by the entire  foreign colony in Shanghai.

The  local English papers denounce the  proposals to evacuate "'Pekin and say  that the Chinese would interpret ev-  > acuation as defeat.

There  is a financial   panic ln   Chinese business circles.     Li Hung Chang remains  here.     He told the American and the  British   diplomats .that  the   Russians  had promised to withdraw from Pekin  regardless of the policy of    the other  nations.- Tho -statement isnot believed.  It Is thought probable that he is simultaneously assuring the Russians that  the.

This is  the very best opportunity to settle for  all  time,   the  statua  of foreigners  In  China.      If that matter ia not settled  for now, the Chinese will be' encouraged to persist in the present policy, and  the powers will have the whole trouble  to thrash out again every two or three  years.     I believe all the governments  .. ,are impressed  with  this truth, and I  " 'bdheve   most   of  them  realize  that  a  definite permanent   settlement of the  status of foreigners and the establishment of freedom ln trade Is now more  important to them    than  the acquisition of territory.
