SETTLEMENT   IS REACHED.
The Ottawa and Manitoba Government. Have Cenie to an
Agreement.
to all other teachers. In addition to
this the efficiency of the schools is
assured by the inspection being uniform.
It is understood that the settlement
will be made by each government
adopting an order-in-council ratifying
t he agreement aud when the Manitoba
legislature meets it will pass a brief
act covering the necessary ground. It
is not expected thnt any federal legislation will be necessary to give effect
to the settlement.
Ottawa, Oct. 14.���Dr. Duncan,quar-
antino officer at Victoria, B.C., has
been dismissed. The order-in council
appointing bitn by the late Government, which in fact has not properly
gone iuto force, has been cancelled.
Duncan allowed a suspect who had
been suffering from small-pox and tbe
man who was iu charge to come out of
quarantine and vote for Earle and
Prior in Victoria at tbe last general
elections. The offence was so grave
that dismissal was necessary in the
interest of public safety.

both into the river with the above result. J. McArthur is from New Westminster, and Dyell is from Fort Saskatchewan, the former being married.
The bodies have not yet been recovered.
Snow In Toronto.
Toronto, Oct. 17.-Toronto is having the first snow of the season tonight. There is quite a heavy shower
falling.
Ottawa, Oct. 17.���The cabinet met
to-day at 10 o'clock with the Manitoba
delegates to take up the Manitoba
school question. While the whole
matter was as good as settled at yesterday's meeting of thn cabinet, there
weie some details left to be taken np
to-day. They were gone into fully
and not only hns a basis of settlement
been rear hed, but the whole details
have been as good as definitely fixed,
alfhough the terms of settlement will
not be given out until after they are
laid before Premier Groenway and a
toll meeting of his cabinet. There is
much rejoicing in political quarters
hero at the early removal of this vexed
question from the political arena.
Some of the details of the settlement
have leaked ont through various channels despite the efforts of cabinet ministers to observe the strictest secrecy.
The proposed settlemont is along ths
lines of the origiuat draft prepared
shortly after the formation of the government. The principle of national
schools remains intact, the local government retaining absolute control of
them. Uniform inspection is also provided lor, so that the general efficiency
of ther ephools will be assured. To
provide- for the education of all children there is a bi-litigual pro-rision so
that children who cannot speak English can be taught by the use of the
French language to do so.
The clause of the settlement which
has given rise to the greatest trouble
and discussion and which kept both
sides apart the longest is that relating
to religious exercises in the schools
The settlement provides half an hour
each day shall be taken for religious
exercises, the schools closing at 3.30
p.m. instead of four All children
who do not desire to remain for religious exercises may leave after 3:30.
Theu the teacheas shall give certain
religious instruction to all those pupils who choose to remain As the
Roman Catholics have always taken
the ground that no teacher who is not
a Roman Catholic is competent to impart the religious instructions of thc
church, it is provided., that in nil
sohools where thirty or more Roman
Catholic children, a Roman Cutnolic
teacher shall be employed whese duty
it shall bo to impart religious instruction. It will be recalled that the
Manitoba government offered ~ir Donald Smith and his co-commissioners,
half an hour for religious exercises
the same to be giveu in the schools by
priests or brothers of the church who
might go to the schools for tbat pur*
pose. This was objected to by Roman
Catholics on the ground that it would
be a dead letter, as the church would Drowning Aecltluiit atRev.lstoko

Partisan Postmasters.
Toronto, Oct 16.���A Telegram's
special dispatch from Ottawa, says:
"The flat has gone forth. Every citizen has tbe right ot thn free use of the
post offices, aud of all the departments
the post office must be kept exceptionally free from all taint of political par
tizanship. This, it is learned will be
lived up to and within a few days tbe
dismissal of twenty Quebec postmasters, for having displayed offensive
partisanship, will be announced, In
no case, it is stated, has action been
taken, except upon clear proof. One
postmaster was chairman of a committee; another allowed matter passing
through the mails to be opened, and
Conservative campaign sheets to be
inserted when it was made up again
aud forwarded. One postmaster refused shelter to a Liberal candidate
during an awful storm, and told him,
'���You can sleep with the pigs," whilst
another noticing a letter from a Liberal candidate to the Liberal committee
men, retained it five days, finally delivering it on the day of the election,
forgetting that the dating stamp
would give him away. These are
some ot the cases. The Quebec post-
office inspector's case is still sub-judice
Sweetman's official report has not been
handed in, and upon it depends
whether the reprimand given by him
will be deemed sufficient to meet the
exigencies of the case or not. There
have been frequent complaints about
the post office at- Rimouski, and several investigations have lieen held. The
last arose out of a theft of some 1200
of government moneys from tlie office
during the absence on leave of the
postmaster. Whut is to be doue in
this matter is under consideration.
An Insult to tho queen.

Queen Victoria there during the night
and that a pair of old sandals was tied

Pure 1'eer.
London, Oct. 27.-The royal commission appointed by the government
to consider the question of nure beer
and to inquire Into and report upon
the questious whether legislation is
required to prevent the use of deleterious substances in the manufacture of
beer, and whether the materials of
which beer may be composed may be
defined by law w ithout due interference with the liberty of brewers to use
any wholescme materials, held its first
session to-day. The Earl of Pembroke
is chairman, and the members include
Dr. James Bell, formerly principal of
the English Revenue Laboratory, Sir
J. H. Gilbert, the famous agricultural
chemist nt Oxford university, and Mr.
H. W. Primrose, chairman of ihe
board ol customs.
There is one medicino which every
family should be provided with. We
refer to Chamberlain's Pain Balm.
When it is kept at baud the severe
pain of a bum or scald may be promptly relieved uud the sore healed in much
less time than when medicine bus to
be sent for. A sprain may be promptly treated before iullaiiimation sets in,
which insiiros a cum in about one-
third the time otherwise required.
Cuts and bruises should receive imnie
diate attention,tiefor.i the parts become
iwollen, and when Chamberlain's Pain
Balm is applied it will heal thorn with
out mutter being formed, and without
leaving i-cnr. A sore throat may lie
cured in one night. A piece of flannel
dampened with this liniment and
bound on over the seat of pain, will
cure lame back or pain in the side or
chest in twenty-four houis. It is the
most valuable, however, for rheumatism. Persons afflicted witli this disease will be delighted with the prompt
reliof from pain which it affords, and
it can lie depended upon to effect
a complete oure. For sale by

TELEGRAPH ORDERS PROMPTLY
ATTENDED TO.
The attention of Prospectors and Miners is called to the merits of a new
improved apparatus, for testing and smelting various kinds of ores and miner-
a s, also separating and refining base bullion, etc.
Manufactured by a chemist and metallurgist who thoroughly understands
the wants of the assayer, the prospector, the miner, the chemist for laboratory
test; for all furnace work, such as smelting, scorifying, coupelling, fusing in
crucibles, testing of sampling charges, roasting, etc.
This furnace is built in two halves for easy transportation, is complete in
itself, made of steel plate, with cast-iron slag and metal spouts, wind supply
pipe and knock-down bottom.
It is of the cupola type, with extension when smelting ores ; capacity 1000
to 5000 pounds per heat * also smaller size, capacity from 100 to 200 pounds
per heat, according to the character of cres.
The Advantages in Practice are as Follows:
This furnace Is constructed by and for a prospector, who requires a serviceable furnace, easily transported over a mountainous country by a pack burro,
that is complete and ready to be set up at any dump of low grade ores, that
otherwise will not pay to ship, and make his good pay out of one to two tons
of ore a day.
On low-grade ores picked nt tlio dump, this little furnace will pay for Itself every week, besides wages and expenees. Let someone else do the risk in
milling, and stick to a certainity.

No one saw the shooting. Inmates of
the house were attracted to the room
by two reports of a revolver fired in
quick succession. Bursting the door
Of the room they found tbe girl, Cleo
Russell, half dressed on the bed, blood

I       Tlie Oak Luke Till, r "nptureil.
' Gladstone, Oct. 21.- E. C. Coiidie,
the Oak Lake thief, who got away
with 93,000 from the Dominion Express company, was' arrested here last
night. Condie came to a farmers
place jestcrday   morning named Wal-
| ters, and engai-ed with him threshing.
A   nephew of   Walters working with
. him, noticed   that  he was not used to
I hard work, nnd having beard of the
Oak Lake robbery, became suspicious
of him, questioning hiin closely, Con-
I die said very little, nothing at all, in
fact, as to where he had been lately;
but. he seemed to know more than the
i ordinary farmer about the late C.P.R.
strike. As his description answered
I lie I'il-cular, Adamson, Walter's nephew
informed the agent at Gladstone of the
fact. Constable Bunn was sent out
immediately, who arrested Condie.
All the money was found on him and
he has confessed that he is Condie.
People nre Awakened.
Vancouver, Oct. 18.���The city council of Vancouver and board of trade
are conjointly taking action to protect
the interests of the coast and the general public of British Columbia in connection with the proposals now being
made in regard to the construction ol
a direct line of railroad between the
coast and Rossland and Nelson, having connections also with East Kootenay's gold and s'lver country, through
t'io Crow's Nest Pass. The public
authorities concerned will urge on the
Dominion aud the provincial governments the need of withholding grunts
of railway riirhts from mere charter
mongering syndicates, and the need of
at the same time securing equitable
freight and passenger rates, as conditions precedent to subsidy ������rants. The
city councils of Victoria and New
Westminster are working on similar
line, and the province may in fact be
said to be a unit on the issue.
There is one medicino whicli every
family should be provided with. We
refer to Chamberlain's Pain Balm.
When it is kept at hand the severe
pain of a burn or scald may be promptly relieved and the sore healed iu much
less time than when medicine has to
lie sent for. A sprain may be promptly treated before inflammation sets iu,
which insures a cure in about ono*
third the time otherwise required.
Cuts and bruises should receive imme
diate attention,before the parts become
swollen, aud when Chuuiberlain's Pain
Balm is applied it will heal them with
out matter being formed, and without
leaving scar. A sore throat may be
cured in one night. A piece of flannel
dampened with this liniment nnd
bound on over the seat of pain, will
cure lame back or pain in the side or
chest in twenty-four hours. It is the
most valuable, however, for rheumatism. Persons afflicted with this disease will be delighted with the prompt
relief from pain which it affords, and
it can be depended upou to effect
a complete cure. For sale by
