MITD TO CANADA.
America Loses but One Point in tne
tondon, Oct. 20. Tho Alaskan boun
dary commission has verbally agreed to
grant all tho American contentions ex
cept that of the Portland canal, which
goes to Canada. Tho formal agreement
is being drawn up.
The successful termination of arbitra
tion came as a complete surprise to all
interested in the caw, except perhaps
the commissioners themselves.
No hitch occurred during the entire
lllieratlons. and as these progresod
the confidence of the American commis
sioners that a dceesion substantially
upholding the American claims would
be given, increased; but it was admit
ted it would lie necessary to agree to n
compromise on the Portland canal.

Ottawa, Ont., Oct. 20. The Canadian
government has not yet received the
official notice of the reported decision
in the Alaskan boundary matter. If
the decision is as reported, namely
that Portland canal is to remain in
Canadian territory, there is a feeling in
official circles that tho Dominion has
not much to be thankful for. Canada

WILL RISE TO A MAN.
People ol Rula Ready to Uphold the
Czar In the Far Eat.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 20. While ex
pressing the hoie of a peaceful issue of
the far Eastern crisis, the Novoe Vrcm-
ya points out that if war breaks out,
the Russians will rise as one man at
the call of the czar, and there can lie
no doubt regarding the ultimate issue.
The Novoe Vremya asserts that the
Japanese belief that Viceroy Alexieff
represents the Russian war party is
quite erroneous, adding:
"While the viceroy has been given
extensive administrative powers, he is
only the executor of the orders of the
czar in matters of foreign policy. Ono
of tho czar's chief aims, the mainten
ance of peace, is the fundamental basis
of Russian policy in the far East.
"This has been modified since the
institution of the viceroyalty, and tho
holder of the post cannot depart from
tho very clearly defined policy of the
Russian government w hich has no other

TO TEACH FARMING.
A New Study for Common School Course
Sl.m The teaching of the elements
of nrgiculturo in the common schools
of Oregon is advocated by Superinten
.lout of Public instruction J. u. .w
man. The purpose of the introduction
nf this study would not bo to teach
ii,r oliihlron the technical side of scion
title farming, but rather to give them
an undeistandmg of such elementary
facts and principles as every person
who resides in an agricultural country
linnl.l know. Superintendent Acker
man believes that at some future time
such a study should be placed in the
common school course, and that before
thn tonrhlne of this branch is com
menced, timo should be given for the
teachers to prepare for tho work they
will be required to do. He would have
every applicant for a teacher's certifl'
cate' tako an examination in the sub
ject of elements of agriculture.
