Marysvllle, and the operation the greater part of the year of tbe Crofton
works after a long shutdown, are all
noteworthy evidences of    progress    lu
Best of all, though, from the polnl
of view of Ihe encouragement of tho
further Investment of cnpltnl in the
mining and smelting Industries of British Columbia, there Is the fact that
apart from the lurge unioimt of net
profits expended lln further development nnd equipment by several of tbe
bigger companies, and ihe nei earnings
or close corporations engaged In mining, between $8,000,000 snd $4,000,000
wbb divided among shareholders In mining companies. Since nothing else is
so convincing to prospective Investors,
this distribution of surplus net profits
may well lie regarded as �� matter for
sincere congratulation.
Now, the Mining Kerord Is not suggesting that the honorable the premier
should have included In his manifesto
the whole of these facts, lt is simply
taking the all ton brief and modest
Statement of the head of the government as a text and from it Is venturing
upon the foregoing little discourse,
whicli mny well be given wide publicity, since It Is slmnly a review of nomo
of the leading features of a very gratifying Bltuation In regard to mining ln
the province, the value of the products
of which, as pointed out on another
page of this Issue, is greater for 1900
than that estimated for the lumbering,
agricultural nnd fishing Industries of
British Columbin combined.

MARPOLE SPEAKS ON B.f.
C. P. R. Official Predicts Great Things
In Development During the Coming Summer.
Winnipeg. Feb. 6.���in an Interview
last night with regard to the future of
British Columbia, Mr Marpole spoke In
the most optimistic strain.
"The West could not be Judged," he
said, "by Eastern standards. The West
motto was. Live and let live.' There
were piles of gold awaiting iu British
Columbia for young men with grit who
were prepared to rustle. Everything
in the province was thriving, fisheries,
mines, lumber and fruit industries."
Questioned with regnrd to coolie labor from British India, Mr. Marpole
considered that the Indian coolie had
been a failure and he was little hopeful
of that class of labor.
"The Indians," Bald Mr. Marpole.
were not reliable and though of little
use on fruit ranches they had a much
stronger Instinct for fishing and would
travel long distances to gratify It."
For Vancouver Mr. Marpole prophesied great things. He believed It would
soon have a population of 100,000. He
was not sure the real estate boom waa
uot overdone.
Victoria and Vancouver Island would
always be popular on account of the delightful climate and the natural beauty
to be enjoyed there. Victoria and Kb
surroundings greatly resembled the
Welsh coast nnd the shores of Southwest England.
Asked bb to hlB opinion on the recent
electloiiB in UrltlBh Columbia. Mr. Mar-
tiole said he had regarded the election
very much as he waB wont to regard
a borne race. Both Bides had been sanguine and he would have been no more
surprised If tho Liberals had won u
sweeping victory.

STRENGTH OF PARTIES
New Reichstag Will Support Colonial Policy on Which Former
House Was Dissolved.
Berlin, Feb. 6���Emperor William today Ib described as being in good humor over the result of yesterday's re-
balloting In the reichstag elections,
which emphasized' the government vie
tory of January 25.
His majesty had never witnessed
such spontaneous enthusiasm for himseir ns he did lust night, when a procession was formed 40.000 to 60,000
strong and marched through the streets
to the palace singing, "The Watch on
the Rhine" and other patriotic songs
Nor had he ever felt Buch unity between him and the people. The em
peror was returning to the palace
shortly before midnight, after hearing
a lecture on turbine engines, when he
first mot the enormous crowds spreading toward the palace. His majesty'!*
automobile wus surrounded and he was
scarcely able to advance. The people
followed the emperor to the palace,
where thousands were massed In the
Luslgarten, fronting the estate, where
they waited for the emperor to address
them, which he did, his remarks being
received with prolonged applause.
The government uow counts upon
1ST to 201 members of the reichstag to

If Colonies  Share  Imperial  Privileges
Must Bear Responsibility.
London, Feb. G.���At the annual dinner of the Huddersfeld chamber of
commerce, Lord BrasBey, referring to
the claim of thc colonies that they be
consulted in negotiations of treaties,
said: "If their claim to a larger share
In the direction of imperial affairs bo
admitted, they must bear at least
some part of the responsibility of enforcing the observance of international
agreements."
Donald Mgcmaster at Hawick said
he agreed with the German statesman
who declared lately that If the empire
adopted Chamberlain's policy the empire would be born anew. Was lt possible the parent nation and ber children wero so absolutely lost to the inheritance from their forefathers they
were incapable of coming round a family table and making a reasonable bargain for thc mutual benefit?

PLANT BEST VARIETIES
Latest Detailed Advice to Fruit Growers From Provincial Board of
Horticulture.
A bulletin recently issued by tbo provincial department of agriculture contains some valuable Information and
advice for fruit growers in all sections
of Ihe province. Lists are given of varieties proved to be commercially prof-
Itahle In the *veral fruit growing districts.
The circular'aavB;
This list Is -published as experience
has shown that the varieties named
may generally be safely grown for commercial purposes, and to put Intending
orchardlsts on their guard against recommendations of tree vendors and of
others who have not the means of obtaining reliable Information. It must
be understood, however, that the list
does not contain the names of all varieties which possibly may be safely
and. probably ln many cases, profitably
grown.
For commercial purposes, a great variety of each kind ot fruit Is not recommended. It Is better to profit by
experience and plant only those varieties which are known to be profitable,
in apples, one or two, and at the outside three, varieties of known suitability and excellence and good moneymakers, are quite sufficient for any district.
The list, as recommended for the
upper country, Is;
Apples.

The following is added In advice to
fruit growers on the subject of buying
and planting trees:
While In no way deprecating the extra-provincial nuraerles, it Is a self-evident fact that acclimatised nursery
stock Is preferable to imported stock,
and, therefore, It is recommended that,
when possible, trees should be obtained
from local nuraerymen. The wisdom
of this advice is, I believe, sound, for
the following reasons: Being acclimatised, no time Is loat In adaptation to
the new condlUons; being freshly taken up and transplanted, the riak of loss
by drying out and by frost are so minimised that very few of the trees die.
The principals being on the ground and
having reputations to sustain, lt la to
their interest to sell only such stock
as ar etrue to name, and tbe substitution of other varieties than those wanted cannot be done without consent, tn
case of mistakes they are mete easily
rectified; the risk of disease and posts
ls minimised; the opportunltvof visiting the nursery and lrt#MM)g tho
stock before buying; the necessity and
expense of Inspection Is avoided, for It
must be remembered that all nursery
stock from any point outside of the
province must be sent to Vancouver
and t here inspected by a quarantine
officer of the board, and the fees paid
before It Is allowed to he moved.
CASTRO IS DYING
Condition Assumes an
Alarming Phase
SKETCH OF HIS CAREER
Usurper of Venezuela Presidency
Rises from Penury to Affhnnce
���Interiulional Influence.
New York, Feb. 6.���A cable despatch
was received in this city yesterday
from a high goverrunent official in
Caracas saying that thc condition of
President Castro ot Venezuela had assumed a more alarming phase and that
he was expected to die within 24 hours.
The message came by way of Curacoa
and was dated February 4 (Monday).
It Ib probable that the despatch was
taken there from Caracas for transmission to New York.
President Castro Is at Macuto. a sea-
aide resort near Lngnay, where he has
beon under treatment of his physicians
since December. His affliction is known
to be of a serious nature, and several
times he has been close to death.
Ciprianis Castro wns born ln the state
of Tachira, Venezuela, In 1860; his
mother a negro and father an Indian
patriarch of decidedly Mormon tendencies. It Is said that Castro was one of
60 children, for the moat part Illegitimate. He kept a small store In his
youth and tended his father's cattle.
Castro was penniless when he usurp-
ed the Venesuelan presidency ln 1900,
and at a salary of fli.000 a year he
amassed a fortune of millions during
his Incumbency. He owned tbe finest
houses In Venezuela, vast ranches and
two palaces. He also owned the steamers of the former Orinoco company,
vast amounts of railway bonds and
huge deposits In French banks. It ls
believed that he always figured on fleeing the country and spending his remaining days In France should the turn
of political affairs ln the South American republic make it undesirable or un-
safe for him to remain in the country.
In brief, his political career was as
follows:
In 1892 he took part in the unsuccessful revolution of Palacio, and when tbe
atruggle collapsed he fled to Colombia.
He made bis appearance again in public life ln 1899 as a deputy from Tachira
under President Andrado.
Disappointed by the treatment ac
corded hlm by President Andrado, Castro in May, 1899, started a new revolt.
Aided by Hernandez, Mendosa, Matos
and other leaders, Castro defeated the
government and entered Caracas in October. Immediately he proclaimed himself president of the republic.
In March, 1901, he was elected president, after putting down the revolts of
various leaders who deserted him when
he usurped the presidency. The armed
rlsiatance to his rule continued until
October 12, 1902, when Caatro decisively defeated the forces of General
Manuel A. Matos.
In 1906 Caatro was elected for a second term ot six years. He bad uaed
such bloody methods ln putting down
all revolts against his rule that at the
election there was practically no resistance to him.
As president, Castro began immediately the policy of oppressing foreign
capital aud monopolizing home Industry. He created for hlmstlf and his
close friends and political supporters
monopolies in the exportation of cattle
and In the trade ln fresh beef, alcohol,
tobacco, matches, hides, leather, milk
and other staples, and In the control of
navigation and trade along tbe Venesuelan coast and inland waters. Ly
means of these unjustifiable monopolies he fulned many thousands of native planters, manufacturers and traders.
Tbe fate of foreign capital under Castro's regime was exemplified in the ruin
of the Caro railroad, the Callao and
Imataka mines. Ihe Manoa company,
and several irrigation and steamship
companies. He annulled the rights of
existing companies and turned thero
over to his friends,
ln July, 1904, he seized the asphalt
lake owned by the New York tt Ber-
mudes oompany, refusing the request
of the United States for a suspension
of proceedings pending an InvestigaUon. The properly was sequestered In
thc hands of CoBtro's personal representatives, who sold tho aaphalt and retained the proceeds. With the execution of the asphalt and the French
cable companies, which continued tu
fight tor their rights, nearly all the In-
dnatries of Venesuela dwindled away
and disappeared under Castro's rul*.
Many of them were taken over without
any other formality than a decree from
the president. Those that were not
dealt with In this highhanded mannei
were driven from the country by adverse Judicial decisions and by extor
tion.
Personally, Castro was a most Insignificant specimen of humanity. He
was small of stature, extravagant In
dress and vulgar in hla manners. He
wns conspicuous at social affairs by
his fantastic capers. Though he had
led several revolts he made lt a point
to keep In the background when there
was any real fighting tn be done. His
courage was Illustrated by his action
during the earthquake of 1900, when he
Jumped from his window, 30 feet to the
ground, abandoning his wife and child
In tbe palace to their fate.
ROMANCE AND TRAGEDY.
Assassin Attempts Life of Successor to
Servian Throne.
Constantinople, Feb. 6. ��� George
Christicb. son of the late King Milan
of Servla by Mme. Christicb, bad a narrow squeak from assassination last
night. An unknown man shddeuly at-
tacked Chrlstich and attempted to
plunge a dagger into his breast. The
weapon, however, struck a thick pock-
etbook and only Inflicted a scratch.
Chrlstich, who is 18 years old, lives
here. His mother's life haa been
threatened on previous occasions.
Chrlstich was mentioned as the possible successor to the throne of Servla
at Uie time of the murder ot King Alexander and Queen Draga.
During a visit to Constantinople the
little King Milan of Servla was attracted by u beautiful Turklah girl, Artemisia Johannid, daughter of the sultan's
chief architect, and she became tbe
mother of a son, whom Milan caused
to be christened with his own name.
Later, Artemisia became the wife of a
Servian nobleman named Christicb, who
was minister of Servla at St. Peters
burg for many years.
ATTEMPTED SUICIDE
Well Known Nalesn Cltlien Seeks   lo
End Hia Life at Grand Forks���
Victim of Despair.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Feb. 6.���About 12
o'clock lest Saturday night Mrs. Emil
Laraen, wife of the proprietor of the
Province hotel in thla city, noticed
some suspicious signs and noises about
a certain bedroom ln the hotel. She at
once notified her husband, who went
to the room, which was occupied by a
Swede named A. Olseu.
Upon entering the room Mr. Larsen
found a razor covered with blood lying
on the floor, while blood was spattered
over the room generally. The victim
of the attempt at self-destruction waa
lying ln the bed with the bedclothes
tightly tucked about him and lying tn
a pool of his own blood with his throat
badly slaahed. A close examination of
the room showed conclusively that Olsen had attempted to hang himself by
the drop cord of the electrlo light before he had resorted to the rasor.
Mr. Laraen at once telephoned for
Dr. Kingston and Chief of Police Savage and the Injured man was removed
to the Cottage hospital, where he ta
now lying In a condition between life
and death.
In an interview today Emtl Larsen,
proprietor ot the Province hotel, said:
"A. Olsen..-who attempted suicide ln
my hotel laat Saturday night waa about
35 yeara of age. He arrived here on
February 1 trom Nelson and had apparently beon on a big drunk before
reaching thla town, but he only had
two drinks In my hotel on Saturday,
the day he tried to kill himself. He
was a blacksmith by trade and expected to go to work for Frank McFarlane
laat Saturday on a logging contract,
and was greatly disappointed en Saturday when Mr. McFarlane, who was
unable to find Olson, left town without
him. I hell-eve that, being In a despondent mood and missing this Job. combined to Induce him to attempt to take
bis life."
It Is learned that Olson is well known
ln Nelson and also ln Spokane, having
lived In both of these places.
Manoeuvsra of Counael.

or the alx lawyers who have represented Thaw slnoe the beginning of his

NOT ENCOURAGING
Scarcity of Fuel Likely
to list
STDKES AND WEATDEI
C.P.R. Sopt. I. S. Lawrence Discuses Coal Famine and Shows
its Causes and Results.
"All reserves were exhausted during
the long eoal miners' strike in the fall;
the eoal mines, on account of illness
of their employees and other reasons,
are not yet producing anything like full
capacity, and tbe transportation companies are unable, on account or the
exceptionally severe weather entailing
frequent interruptions of traffic, to
handle and dispose to the best advantage even the supplies that are available."
Such Is the summary of the fuel sit-
uatlon In Western Canada given today
to The Dally Canadian by J. S. Lawrence, divisional superintendent or the
C. P. B.
"The outlook," continued Mr. Lawrence, "is not encouraging. It will
probably be the end of April before normal conditions are restored. Our Inability to move cars as rapidly aa we
should do ts one of the causes of the
scarcity of fuel, and the scarcity of
fuel la one of the causes of that Inability.
"At the beginning of the coal miners' '
strike In the fall we had a reserve of
10.0M tons of coal at Nelaon. 50-00 tone
at Smelter Junction and 7000 tons at
Bholt. That reserve tided us over the
strike but left us at tbe beginning of
the winter with no reserves.
"Then came the exceptionally severe
weather of December, with snow blockades everywhere and with an unprecedented demand tor fuel from the prairies, which are dependent entirely upon
coal. The -coal mines were still not producing enough to meet that demand
and have never caught up to It.
"Ever alnce the railways, mines and
smelters have been living from hand to
mouth. We have been taking -ooal
wherever we can get lt.
"I think that Nelaon and Eaat Kootenay have suffered less than any other
part of the West
"There la today not a pound of coal
reserve from Los Angeles to Fort William.
"The American transcontinental lines
have suffered as much aa we have,
many of them far worse, on both main
and branch lines.
"At preaent we are all refusing
freight aa far aa possible.
"As the winter breaks and the demand tor fuel for domestic purposes
slackens, the situation Bhould grow easier, provided the mlnea -can during that
period work back to their full producing capacity.
"But ln the beat possible circumstances, an early spring to reduce the
demand, production at full capacity hy
Ute mlnea, restoration of adequate facilities for transportation to the railway companies, and freedom from labor troubles for both mines and rall-
waya, lt will still be next August before
any company can again begin to accumulate a reserve."

Apart from the slump In the ctty o[
Vancouver, which would ��ecm to Indicate ibat the sturdy We��terner It* re-
voltliiK from machine rules, the most
aignitfeant feature of the late election
wu�� the decline of the Socialist vote
ond influence We think the numeii-
cal flBUUlness of die BOOlallfll vote
mil .tt have been u Kiirprlne to both thfl
esiabllihed political parties, The rea-
eon for thla expeclaliou la uot far to
��eek. The Liberal prQflfl haw been for
three yearn mflgoifylng SoeialiBin and
glorifying Iin importance in the affairs*
of the government, until even some of
tho very elect were deceived Into the
belief that there wan -something In the
abatird Charges thai the Socialists controlled Hit-* government Nothing, of
course, was moro pleaBlng to Uie Ha-
claHeU thau ui have Bttfih notoriety
tbruet upon them, and they thetnselvea
made so prominent.    It juetified them
to some extent In their proud boast to
put a candidate Into thfl contest in ev
erj  riding.
Wit-h the counting of the ballots,
however, the real strength, ��.i weak*
neBs, of the movenvnt is discovered^
nnd it must be said that so far as voting numbers are concerned Socialism
fs apparently weaker today than ever
in the province of Hritish Columbia.
With any reasonably strong candidate
running against Parker Williams in
Newcastle he would have been defeated, leaving a solitary representative of
the ancient ami noble order to lend and
follow himself in the hotise.
The most cursory examination of the
Situation will reveal that it Is the inherent weaknesses of Socialism that
nre accountable for the results described The people or Hritish Columbia
have had more than their fair share of
Socialistic   OgltatlOIl.     Thev   have   been
drilled in  the principles ol the order
in the shop and mine, on the street,
in public halls and In and out of Reason. There jh nothing about Socialism
that can be known which the people of
the province as a whole do not know.
Yet. thetr verdict is overwhelmingly
agalnSI Ms empty platitudes and spe*
dons grumblings, a prosperous country has no use for grumblers and their
wail aud greedy chortle is lost on the
rutbtng crowd. When times are prosperous and the people share in the
plenty that Ih Rood it Is difficult Ut
stir up or at least to maintain for
hiiu; those class conscious distinctions
that the Socialist depends upon for his
success.
Socialism, so far as Hritish Columbia la concerned, may now be num
bared among the discarded political ex
pcdlonofes of the demagogic appellant
for notoriety nud public favor. It has
had representation in the legislative
halls and has had a fair hearing at the
busting!. The voice of the people Is
against it and it is dead.
VVe do not mean that (here has heen
nothing contended for by the Socialist
tbat is desirable. Many of the measures advocated by the class-conscious
Socialist arc recognized as desirable
by many, if not nil, of thi? adherents
of older political parties. Hut the extreme revolutionary features und the
fierce and anarchical denunciations of
tho Socialist agitator do not appeal to
thit common sense of the average citizen     Reforms  will come.    Thoy will
EDITORIAL COMMENT.
The only possible explanation of the
defeat of Hon. Wm. Manson in Alhernl
i.i in the   overconfidence   with which
everyone regarded    his    election    as a
foregone conclusion. Personally popular throughout his district, he applied
himself to the affairs of his department
to the neglect of that cordial interest
in every voter which Is always thc sln-
cerest tribute to the worth of a vote.
Certainly Alberni has no cause for Ingratitude and could only have heen
���misled by the delusion that the Liberals would win.
W. W, B. Mclnnes has already arranged to open a law office In Vancouver. Let us see! From law to politics; from Victoria to Ottawa; from
Ottawa to Victoria; from Victoria to
Yukon; from Yukon back into the he-
loved battle of political conflict, and
on to inglorious defeat. Now back to
law. Nothing like being versatile, and
\\. W B, lias succeeded In squaring
ihe circle.
it is somewhat singular that three of
tho  mosi   Import ant     constituencies  in

tlie legislature by the opposition. Be-
lievlng In the fairness of the government we do not expect the clrcum-
Btanoes to affect thfl situation, but we
fancy that perhaps two of these constituencies might like to have It. to do
over again, with different results.

A university such a .McOIll Ih no muull
financial undertaking, though it is
scarcely ��vr considered In this light.
Some lime ago Mr. Robert Iledford offered to give the university $50,000, provided a tola) additional endowment of
nol less than a million dollars be raised.
Wllh this object In view, a meeting wns
held in Ihe .Montreal board of trade
building a few days ago, attended by
i-isril Htratlicona. Karl (irey. Hlr William
Maedonuld und many olher well-known
men. in explanation of tlie appeal for
uildlllonal funds, ll wus stuted tliat during lhe past year McUIII had lusl year
a deficit of nearly 113,000. P. H
Mathewsoii, of lhe Bank of Commerce,
who dealt with the figures, slated lhal
ln ten years time the expenses of the
Institution hud more than doubled.
$204,000 In 1S96 as compared with
$432,000 ln 1906. Of the latter sum
$277,000 was paid out ln salaries and
wages. In ton yearH lime some magnificent gifts had been received from
Lord Strathcona and Sir William Mac
donald, but as these were mainly for
new buildings and equipment,, the ex-
pensea of maintenance are in no wny
lightened. The only other large sums
received In this period hnve been from
three Bpinsters, a MUs Orkney, who
lefi hy her will $25,000; and the Mlsaes
Dow, who bave contributed $60.00(1.
The Misses Dow nre women who figure
Utile In Montreal's affairs except when
It comes to charitable donations. They
are quiet, retiring women of middle age.
who were left an immense fortune and
n great business by their family (the
Dow's brewers). Tbey reside in a big
house on Phillips Place. They enter
lain but little, and are seldom seen In
public except at concerts. With their
money and a desire for the aame, they
mlghl cut a swath in Montreal's society,
but their alms and ambitions lie In
other directions.

Ic'sm of the latest amendments to the
