expected, The parents and friends of
ths scholars are cordially invited tc
be present.
A meeting of the town committee
wss /held on Thursday afternoon at
which the secretary was instructed to
write to Col. Baker calling bis attention to tbs requirements of the distriot
ss sst forth st the public meeting last
week, and urging upon him tho necessity of such v. orks.-
A sob-committee was appointed to
ask the Oovt. Agent if something
could not be done towards having tbs
wagon road broken open, as owing to
tbe recent snow storm the rosd wss
blocked and traffic impossible, snd slso
to urge on him tbe necessity of building snow fences at various points os
the road. On being interviewed tbe
Oovt. Agent ststed thst this being so
exceptional case he would send out ths
Oovt. team with two or three men to
break the road, but it would not be
done iu future. Iu regard to snow
fences he staled thst several were being erected at tbe Windermere end of
tbe road.
COL.  BAKER.
Hon, Col. Baker arrived from Ottawa ou Friday of last week on his wsy
to Victoris. In the evening he ad-
dre-.se. s meeting of his constituents
in ths Queen's Hotel. In the course of
his remarks the Colonel stated thst he
had been authorized tc announce te ths
people of Donald,aa he passed through,
that the C.P.R. shops st Donsld were
to be moved to Revelstoke. In thst
case the Government Offices, Court
House and Gaol would be moved to
Golden.
The requirements of the district were
laid before our member, among them
the following were the most important:
The need of trails in the McMurdo
district. This part of the Golden
Mining Division was ths ons which
needed most sttention. Several mines
in this district had bseu sold during
the season, one wss actually shipping
or* snd mors would' do so if tbess
trsils were put in, snd proper trans*
portation facilities afforded.. A sum
of at least 13,000 was mentioned ss
necessary for this work.
As regards improvements, around
Golden the most important wss tbs
protection of ths river banks. The
completion of ths work already undertaken was urged, slso the building of
a dyke on the south side of the Kicking Horse.
In addition to this a sum should bs
placed on the estimates for street improvement ss the growth of ths town
will naturally necessitate the opening
np of new streets snd the gravelling of
some already opened.
Another important matter wss
brought to the Colonel's notice, tbst
being the improvement of the wagon
road to Fort Steele. It wss pointed
out that the farmers snd merchants of
East Kootenay felt keenly the oompe*
tion from the American sloe, snd to
enable Csnsdisn products to be marketed in Fort Steele the rosd must be
kept in a high state of efficiency.
Amicably Settled.
The committee appointed by the C.
P.K. operators to sot with ths superintendents of the C.P.R. in tbe matter of drawing up a schedule governing the hours of labor, wages, etc,
concluded their work on Monday, snd
so fsr ss the western division is concerned tbe troubles which led to the
strike have beau amicably settled. Tbe
new schedule will be put iuto operation
at once.

DETAILS  OF THE SCHOOL
'A,-;   SETTLEMENT.
Ottawa, Nov. H.-Hon. Clifiord
Sifton will arrive here on Monday and
will be sworn in ss Minister of the Interior on Tuesday. It is understood
that the announcement of the details
of the school question settlement nre
tbe same as those already published.
Mr. Sifton's- resignation as Attorney
Genersl of Manitoba will also be announced at the same time as will likely'
sll other changes rendered necessary.
. ibe nomination in Brandon will take
plaoe on November 86, and if there is
sn election it will be held on Dec. 8.
Later.���The order-in-council wss
passed yesterday issuing the writ for
Brandon election.
Tbe outline of the sattlemeut of the
school question is as follows; All
schools are to be national, under provincial control, and subject to the
same regulations and inspections. Tbe
same text book's will be used snd sll
teachers will be properly qualified by
passing the provincial examination
snd taking the pi escribed Normal
school courses. School work of s
purely secular character will occupy
the whole of the school-day, except
the last half hour when the representatives of any religious denominations
-will be allowed to come in and instruct
the ohildren belonging to his own de-
nominstion, provided the parents are
willing to havo tbem remain. In
oases where the people decide not to
have this religious instruction the
regular school work will go on till the
close of the school hours. The principle of local option is recognised thro'*
out. The proviso that is intended to
make the schools satisfactory to the
minority is that in districts having an
average sttondsuce of iin Boman
Catholic children, shall be entitled to
have a teacher of their own denomination, who must be fully qualified according to provincial or national school
standards. In districts where the
children speak French wholly tbey
sre to have a teacher speaking both
French snd English, so that they will
learn English as rapidly as possible.
The readers used ir. such schools to be
bi-Iiiigual so that the children will
grow up from the first accustomed to
English.
GIGANTIC MINING DEAL.
Toronto, Nov. 14.��� Fhe Globe says
Probably the biggest mining  transaction Canada has yet seen is understood
to have been conoluded within the last
few days.   By it representatives of tbe
famous Barney Barnato of Johannesburg fame, secures the control of practically all the mining properties in the
Lake of the Woods and Rainy River
districts, and within the next 30 days
will have paid for options on the properties, valued at a quarter of a million
dollars, 10  percent of  that amount.
The option extends over a sufficient
period of time to enable them to do developing work next spring. For several weeks J. D. Warren, and J. Cohen,
have been quietly at work investigating mining properties in the districts
referred to  and  securing options on
them.     Both   gentlemen   have  been
hovering round the offices of tlie Mines
Contract Co. which is handling many
of  these  mines, but until a few days
ago  it  was  not  known whom they
represented. Warren, who comes from
New  York  is   supposed to represent
Amerioan   capitalists   but   now it is
understood he has been working with
Cohen, who was  with Br.rnato in the
Rand.     They   have  already secured
some  forty   options  on properties at
Handle  Bay, Shoal  Lake, Big  Bay,
Upper  Manitou, Little  Manitou and
other  points.     It is supposed a third
man   is  working on the Rat Portage
end  of  ths  job.     It seems that the
Barnato people have  been quietly taking stock of the mines in British Columbia and Algomn region, and after a
cantful inquiry decided that it was best
to  invest  in   Ontario's mines, where
there is free milling ore.    The British
Columbia  mines are nearly aM-unfiling  properties, and  at least eighteen
months must elapse before any revenue
can be derived from them.   In the Ontario mines the ore is free milling, and
a turnover can be secured in very much
shorter time.     These propositions are
more suitable for the  London market
The business of  the Barnato transaction   is  being done through the Bank
of Montreal.
Mrs. W. B. Meek, who resides at
Camptonville, Cal., suys her daugh'er
was for several years troubled at times
with severe cramps in the stomach,
and would be in such agony that it
was necessary to call in a phvs.ciau.
Having read about Chamberlain'*.
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
she concluded to try It. She fuiind
tbat it always gave prompt relief It
was seldom necessary to give the
second dose. "It has not only saved
us lots of worry and time," she savs,
"but also doctor bills. It is my opinion that every family should have a

the   prospects of  the curlers for an
*arly   start   which   were very hi-i-jht
last week fell with the ci.rling rink on
Saturday.     The   heavy   snow fall of
"two days previous waa more than the
roof  oould  stand   and   owing to the
negligence of the caretaker in not having the   snow clfnred off   it collapsed
taking with it nil one side of tlio rink.
.'Luckily   no  person   was   in the rink
when   the  oalastrophe   happened, al-
though Capt. Armstrong.wa* as uearly  in   it aa anyone would wish to be
He approached  the rink with the in*
tention  of  walking   through  fer the
purpose of swing what work had been
done the  night liefore, he was a little
doubtful, however, if he could get out
���t the other end and so decided to keep
on the outside.   Tbe Captain had just
got  aw��v   from the building when it
fell.     On   Monday   morning   two or
three of the moving spirits of thr club
talked   the  matter  over aud resolved
that   if  it   were within the limits of
possibility' they would have tbe dam
���ge repaired ss speedily as possible.   A
meeting  of  the  club   wss held that
evening and the financial phass of the
project was fully discussed, and it was
decided that if the work oould be done
for a certain   sum they would have it
done.   On Tuesday Mr.- Dan McDonald
offered to do the werk for a price within a few dollars of   what the club had
decided  on  the  night   previous, his
terms were accepted and the next dav

month the   "roarin' game" will be in

A "big four" for the Winnipeg bonspiel is tslked of tbis winter. Who'll
tolunteer.
One of Golden's representatives at
Winnipeg, Mr. Wm. Oeorgeson, has
been elected Pre. idem of the Manitoba
Branch of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club of Scotland.
Capt. Armstrong has kindly given
the club the use of two lamps off the
Duchess. These lamps are capable of
throwing a light a quarter of a mile,
this will ensure good light in the rink
for the coming season.
We hear tliere is room for one or
two more rinks, and as there are several of last year's crack players who
have not
of curling this winter it ought to bd
sn easy matter tu make up st least
two more rinks.   Wake np boys.
A wicked young man wss heard to
remark the other day that a uumber of
the married ladies were secretly rejoicing' when they heard the rink had
collapsed, thinking thst "hubby"
would have to stay borne every night.
Alas, if suoh be the oase, but we do
not .believe tbst the lsdies of Oolden
���re so cruel as to rejoice st the misfortune of their better (?) halves, se*
cording to present indications they sre
doomed to disappointment.

Proposed Cable from Oolden to Fort
ttSelO,
A movement has been originated to
obtain a more rapid means uf. communication hat ween Golden and Fort
Snele than the present weekly post. A
vast tradio now passes between these
twO points and other intermediate
places, and great diaadvantage exists
through the prrsont tardy means that
the inhabitants have of communicating their wants, This would be reme-
d ed by the establishment of telegraphic or telephonic comiiiuicutioii. It
| is r p ised to lay a cable up the bed oi
| t:ie Columbia hIuiiu the Canal into the
j Kootenay and down lhat river to Fort
"sipr-le. The distance is about 180
iniiea The cost of a cable would be
vury small compared with a regular
Hub oi wires stretched across the
country where breakages would be so
liable through storms.
This niu.einent has originated in
tlu upper part oi the valley where the
want is more disectiy felt, ui.il il such
a cable was iu existence trailers could
communicate mora quickly wiih their
freighters, medical aid or clerical consolation cculd lie more rapidly obtained
and breakers out of prison or other
fugitives from justice would have
their means of etcape lessened by the
Way of the Columbia valley.
