(Special to The Dally Canadiaa.)
Grand Forks, Nov. 1.���Word has
leached here today that tbe adjusting
of Ihe financial difficulties of the Midway & Vernon railway aro about completed. The delay in arranging matters is reported to be due to certain delays between the KngllBh capitalists
and the railway company's New York
agents. The question of paying off
some of the heavy creditors of tho railway company Is now being taken np,
among whom Is tho Okanagan Construction company, which has n claim
of over $90,000. It Is fully expected

very difficult undertaking, as the

head of the fighting organization during Ihe Slplugune and Von Plehve regimes, has escaped from Siberia, concealed in a water cask. His disappearance Is a serious menace to personages

In spite of the Inclement weather a
bumper audience filled the 20,000
club's home last night to hear "Cav-
allerla Rusticaun" and "Pinafore." It
was not the fault of the performers
that the entertainment turned Into a
frost. The principal parts were all
well sustained, but en 1 piano and one
violin are not cnounn for any theatre,
especially such 0 one as the Exhibition Imlldtng makes. All the stage arrangements, including the lighting,
were crude ln tbe extreme and, although numerous fires were burning,
the audience were not too warm. The
play Itself Is lugubrious in the extreme and certainly required something like "Pinafore" to lift the audience ont of the gloom Into which the
more ambitious piece bad cast them.
The principals. Miss Lucia Nola, Miss
Winnlfred Crowley, F. W. Walters,
Hllllard Campbell and Miss Carrie
Godfrey must be heartily congratulated for doing so well under such ad
verse circumstances.

United States Mutt Find Another   to
Negotiate Commercial Treat*/.
New York, Nov. 1.���A Berlin de-
despatch to tbe Times says that the
German government has been Informed that the plana to send H. C. Stiles
of the United States state department
to Germany as one of the American
experts to try to find a basis for a
new commercial treaty bas been aban
doned. Although the American state
department gives another reason for
the withdrawal of Stiles, It. Is believed
In Berlin, tbe despatch says, that the
Germans expressed opposition to -his
appointment. It Is Impossible to obtain confirmation of tbe report, but
tbe officials In Berlin intimate that Hr.
Stiles' coming would not have promoted the tariff negotiations.
A Washington despatch to the Times
says that Stiles was one of the Americans selected to go to Berlin to endeavor to find a basis for tbe negotiation of a new commercial trade treaty
between the United States and Germany as a means of settling the tariff
difficulty, that greatest of all American trade regulations which are so objectionable to Germany. The modus
vivendl under which tbe two countries
are at present operating and the agreement which staved off a tariff war

British Manufacturers Send Delegation
to Investigate Future Supply and
Arrange Combine.
New York, Nov. 1.���The committee
of British cotton manufacturers sent to
this country to investigate the future
supply, In a broad sense, of the raw
material arrived on tbe Cunarder Caro-
llnia yesterday. It consists of H. W.
MacAUlster, tbe chairman of the committee of six that came over ln the
spring, and W. J. Orr, who waa also a
member of tbe committee. These gentlemen are this year accompanied by
A. N. White, three secretaries, and B
P. Hollings, son of a large manufacturer, who ls accompanying the committee on bis individual account. The
visitors will probably remain here for
a day or two and, with American spinners, will then start on a systematic
trip throughout the South to watch
the picking methods and round out
their practical Investigation of growing
problems wblch began during tbe
planting season last spring. Mr.Mc-Al-
llster quite frankly and fully explained the object of his visit yesterday.
The supply of raw material was, be
urged, the question of most Importance
to the British cotton manufacturers,
and the manufacturers he represented,
15 in number, were trying to Inform
themselves In a practical manner of
th econdltlons affecting the production.
He continued: "What we really desire Is to go about our Investigation
very quietly ln a private manner. We
arc not seeking and do not desire notoriety. We made preliminary Investigation last spring and aro now trying
to compute our education with a view
of securing concerted action among
spinners looking to the Improvement
of the methods of production, of handling and transporting cotton. These
are points upon which there has virtually been no Improvement during
the last 20 years. Methods in all these
cases seem primitive and the absence
of the application of modern methods,
lt seems to us, Is a direct handicap
not alone to the manufacturers who
use the cotton but to the cotton growers as well. It Is hut reasonable to
suppose that the cheaper cotton can bo
produced the greater the profit to the
growers, notwithstanding that the manufacturers share in the benefit and receive their cotton at a lower price. We
deslro, therefore, to make a very close
study of the labor question."
Mr. MacAUlster said also that the
handling and the railway transportation would also be looked Into.
Jacob Dover Is home after an extended trip through the Okanagan. Mr.
Dover made a careful Investigation of
the fruit growing possibilities of that
district and ls convinced that It standa
next to the Kootenay as a prospective
producer of high class trull.

Prisoners Identity Discovered by War
Department Order.
Washington, D. C, Nov, 1.���A curious result of the recent adoption by

of Identification by finger prints, haa

In a recent paragraph in the Toronto Sun Professor Goldwin Smith discusses briefly the causes of suicide
but as is usual with thc professor in
many uf his scientific discussions he
passes the matter over without that
full and thorough deliverance that so
serious a subject demands,
The article ls however sufficiently
suggestive to wan-ant some further examination of the subject. Professor
Smith says:
"Every reader of the newspapers
must have noted the increase of suicide. Some of the cases, no doubt,
are not so much cases of suicide proper as of euthanasia, iliat is, culling
short the pains of death. It cannot be
thought that anyone whose case has
been pronounced desperate, and who
has made his will, is bound to he kept
on the rack for a death of lingering
torture. If Providence has sent the
suffering, It has sent also the means
of escape. Mut apparently there is an
increase of suicide proper arising frum
Intensified sensitiveness and a craving
for happiness unfulfilled There are
many persons, it is to he feared, for
whom life may seem not worth living,
if this life ls all. If the present life
is not all, that materially alters ihe
case. Otherwise all thai can be said
apparently is that the dark mood may
pass away, that the future may have
better things in store, that at all
events life fs short, and it is better to
leave it without scandal."
Euthanasia, when self-inflicted is
certainly a sort of suicide and while
there have beon many cases recorded
in which the sufferer has asked that
some noxious drug be given to end the
extreme torture of physical suffering
endured, it must be admitted that in
Ruch cases the physical torture has
been of such a character as to temporarily unbalance the mind. The love
of life in  the normal human being is
sufficiently polent to refuse putting a
period to sufferings so long as they
do not unbalance the mind, and ft may
be seriously questioned whether there
is not in every case of suicide, evidence of mental derangement.
Usually suicides belong to one of
more of several classes. They are
either melancholy, enraged, jealous, despondent or reckless.
Hut the normal human being is never any of these things. Any one of
these conditions is abnormal although
there are many persons in society and
whose position entitles them lo respect
and esteem who are at times melancholy, angry beyond reason, jealous or
despondent though the degree of mental unbalance that may be termed
recklessness is  remarkably rare.
It is In fits of temporary abberatlon
consequent on or coincident with jealousy, rage or despair that by far the
greater class of suicides is to be
found. And the increasing number of
such self-murderers is indeed a serious
question for society.
it may be doubted whether thoughts
of an hereafter play any pan in deterring people who havo resolved on put-
tins a period to their earthly existence.
The mind which Is Incapable of correctly adjusting Itself to the conditions
surrounding this life is scarcely en-
liable of accurately calculating the possible adjustments In a life that Is to
come. When therefore, It fs sought to
find the causes of suicide, the answers
will probably be found to be as numerous as the cases who resort to the extreme  measure of sell-execution.
To find the predisposing causes
which lead Up to or induce the conditions of mental abberatlon which end
In suicide is a study that may profit-
ably engage the mind of everyone anxious to rid society of the scandal and
bereavement Incident to so sad an occurrence. Among these Professor
Smith has discovered a case In which
it was alleged that the reading of novels of a certain class had induced the
mental conditions which brought forth
their fruits unto death. The case cited by the professor, while a striking
one is by no means an unusual one
of its kind and It Is just such cases
as bring the discussion of this subject
Within the range of Interest and Importance to all classes of people who
are responsible for the reading done
by the younger and rising element in
society today.    The custodians of pub-
lie libraries and ihe parents in the
homes will, and should he held responsible for the murder of the young and
hysterical whose death Is self-induced
by the reading of such literature as
tends to Induce morbidity or develop
the false and fatalistic ideals of life
that are fostered by a certain class of
modern fiction.
Apart altogether from the dangerous
tendency of such false ideals of life
as is cultivated by this class of literal ure there is undoubtedly a grave
mora] danger to our youth even when
the results of vicious reading do not
lead to the extreme measures we are
discussing. The familiarity with Improper and vicious relationships in life,
ihe acquaintance with and suggestive**
D6BS of vice which is inseparable from
the perusal of this class of literature,
is as great a moral injury perhaps as
ihe injury resulting from such hysterical denoumeiits aa those which write
finis on the story of many a life.
The moral to be read out of all this
experience and testimony is thnt parents and guardians cannot too carefully supervise the reading of those
commuted to their care, especially In
their tender years, Xo unwholesome
books should be kept in the home and
librarians should purge them from all
libraries or at least refuse their use
to those of tender years. It cannot he
denied that the closing period of the
nineteen tii century and the opening
years of the twentieth have granted
to lhe youth of all lands too great a
liberty in this direction and it may be
that in some future time a scientist
will arise and show succeeding generations that the sins of the parents have
been visited upon (he children to the
third and fourth generations.
We were informed yesterday that
alarm has already seized the Liberals
of Victoria and that the impression
created by the action of Premier McBride has beeu so fatal to their ambitions that the leader has been hastily summoned to the capital to circumvent a stampede if that be possible of
achievement. There is no better place
for the leader of the opposition to begin his work of rehabilitating the demoralized forces of his party than in
the ancient capital for if he succeeds
there he may not unreasonably hope
to hold a portion of his followers elsewhere. Victoria people are peculiarly
volatile on any and all such matters as
better terms. A proposal to build a
new railway that will give Victoria ad-
dlUonal prestige and commerce always
has been a winning card with the people of the provincial seat and we can
conceive that such additional giant
from the federal treasury as the premier sought and in which they would
share is to them the promise of better
days. The experience of the city of
Vietoria, politically, with Ottawa has
been such as to make it naturally turn
to any champion of their inalienable
rights. They think and not without
reason that McHrlde Is the man and
are consequently espousing his cause
with nu enthusiasm Which is spreading
consternation in the ranks of the opposition.
Just what the leader could do or say
to prevent wholesale desertions is a matter upon which we arc not called upon
to speculate excepting as it may please
us to do so. That the premier did
wrong in insisting on special consideration being accorded this province
cannot be denied hy Mr. Macdonald
without completely revoking his resolution of the last session of the legislature. That the premier Should have
asked for more than he did cannot be
argued as all the Liberal papers have
already declared that his demands
were  unreasonable.
That the premier erred in leaving
the conference is a matter which may
he jauntily asserted hut it Is also a
matter upon which the opinion of the
premier, who was on the spot, is worth
the opinion of ten men who were not
there. Even if, for the sake or argument, it be admitted that Mr. MoBrlde
should have sat It out, It will be difficult to persuade the electors that he
did wrong In leaving, especially as it
was repeatedly declared in the conference that the request of Uritish Columbia could not be granted.
The Victoria Times, with its usual
perspicacity, foresees an early appeal
to the electors hut as it has so often
predicted this without the slightest
foundation in fact the majority of the
people will wait till there Is an authoritative declaration of that kind.
The announcement of the Times is only another evidence of the hysteria
wdiich is again afflicting the Liberal
ranks. There is no apparent bustle
anywhere among the Conservatives
and the assurance of the strength of
their position Is not from any overcon-
fidencc in the situation. It rather
arises from a thorough knowledge of
the temper of the electorate. When
the time comes for an appeal to the
country the men who brought the ar-
fairs of the province out of chaos and
impending ruin will face their opponents  with  unclouded  conscience and
an account of their trust that will not
be overthrown by any inventions of
the opposition. There will be but a
single plank in the platform of Ihe
Liberals and that one will he labelled
"A palpable hunger for office."
Because some thoughtless guy
shouted out "secede" at the premiers
big meeting iu Victoria last Friday
some of the Liberal papers are pointing out that this Is the effect of Air.
McBride's action. These members of
a "reptile press" do not tell their readers that the remark "secede" was
promptly and hotly repudiated by the
speaker, who by the way was not the
premier but Mr. D. M. Eberts.
There is one comforting reflection
for the friends of the government and
that is though the opposition papers
are shouting loudly to the galleries
there is apparently no response from
even the gods. Sad isn't it when even
the small boy goes back ou them.
The defeat of the Liberal candidates
in the recent by-elections in Kast Elgin, Nortb Renfrew, and Quebec are
declared by the Liberal papers to be
mailers of no political significance
whutever. In each case there was some
cause aidte satisfactory to them for
the slaughter of the victims they offered on the chance of a sacrifice. Put
now watch the Liberal press on the reelection of Fielding in his Liberal
stronghold, Qu.ens-Shel bourne. Now
we shall have a "Splendid endorsement
of Sir Wilfrid and Hon. \V. S." . . .
"A death blow to Conservative aspiration" . . ."Vindication of the policy
of Free Trade" . . . "A scathing
rebuke to the would-be election purifier" and as much more, ad nauseum.
See if we do not!
The musical critic of the morning
paper was evidently suffering in common with others in the audienco at
"Cavalleria Rusiicana" last night from
the depressing temperature of the
building. In ihe classical criticism of
the performance which appeared In
the early birdie the following sentence
occurred: "The intermezzo was not
sung at all." A slight acquaintance
with the opera as originally written
would surely acquaint the critic with
the fact that there are no words to
the Intermezzo, but that lt Is only an
orchestral arrangement designed to be
played while the peasants are In the
church. We are not surprised that
the company did not know the part.
Autonomy seems to be working very
badly in Saskatchewan. First it was
the election courts that were at fault
there being no machinery to unseat
corruptly-elected members of the Liberal legislature. Now It is the criminal courts that appear defective in
iheir operation aud an appeal to higher
courts is to take place. One might be
excused for wondering that with all
lhe precedent and constitutions of the
older provinces to go by, a law might
have been enacted which would obviate all this nonsense but It seems there
is still work for the lawmakers to do
on the prairie. And the laws when finally amended will suit Sir Wilfrid
It rained last night right in the middle of the performance of "Cavalleria

was exactly .59 inches.

Victoria Writer Discourses on Timber
Under the caption "The Forest
Wealth of Hritish Columbia," Agnes
Deans Cameron, formerly of Victoria
contributes the following article to the
Winnipeg Free Press:
"Second in th_ list of Hritish Columbia's economic products lu the forest
wealth. We bave 18_,7hO,000 acrea of
forest, and lhe largest, compact area ot
iiijiii. -timi.'ly available merchantable
limber ln Uie world. Thc *-nmst abundant, as it is ibu most valuable, tree in
Hritish Columbia, is the grand Douglas
Hr (Hseudolsiiga Douglabii); Us range
exLendlng from the const to the summit of the Rockies, with its best development ou Vancouver island. Here
it oitt-n towers -Uu feet into the air,
having a base girth of i>. feet; the best
averages, however, are 1&0 feet clear of
limbs aud 0 feet lu diameter. Douglas
fir Is our staple timber or commerco
It bus about the same specific gravity
as oak, with great strength. To every
quarter of the globe it is exported as
dimension timber, lumber, spars, masts,
piles, and for ail structural  purposes.
"Our next most important tree is the
giant arbor vitae or red cedar (thuya
glgantea), chiefly used in the manufacture of shingles. The wood of the cedar
takes a very brilliant polish, and so
great is the variety of Its shadings that
It is well adapted for interior finishings; like all cedars it lasts well underground. In addition to its export
value, the cedar is the friend of the
settler, Inasmuch as out of its straight-
grained logs he can build his house,
make his furniture, and fence his farm,
and this wllh the use of the most primitive of tools, only au axe, a saw and a
rule. It is out of the cedar that the
Hydah Indians build their wonderful
war canoes, some of which (hollowed
by fire and rough axe out of a single
tree trunk) have an eight-foot beam,
are iiu feet long, carry the whole family, and safely stem the heaviest seas
of an open ocean.
"Our third most wonderful tree is
the spruce, the king of all the woods
for the manufacture of paper pulp.
"When we see how history Is making
today, it is with a feeling of intense
satisfaction that vfe view our goodly
forests; a world's increasing demand
for lumber in its endless forms, for
shingles, for wood pulp, and millions
upon millions of acres of primeval forest waiting to supply that demand. It
is Indeed a matter for congratulation.
"One feature of the forests of the
coast is their density. As high as
600,000 feet of lumber has been taken
from a single acre, which seems almost unbelieveable to a lumberman of
the east, where 20,000 Is considered
not a bad average. Nature has made
us essentially a timber country, atmospheric conditions are especially favorable to tree growth, and the mildness
of our winters admits of operations being carried on throughout the whole
year; on thc other hand, labor Is high
and the sawmills in British Columbia
cost on an average of $700 per 1,000
feet of daily capacity, 10 hours running.
"One of the most promising of our
new Industries is that of the manufacture of wood pulp, and when we consider the opinion of Professor Macoun
that Douglas fir as well as spruce is
a good pulp tree, the possibilities of
the industry In a province where Douglas fir is the dominant conifer, are obvious. Another possible opening for
tbe timber industry Is afforded by. the
greatly increased demand in the mother country and elsewhere for wood
blocks for pavements. The manufacture of indurated ware, of cabinet
woods, of turpentine, of varnish, of
tannin, of second rate structural material, of charcoal and other bl-prod-
ucts, suggest valuable potential trade
"Hut when it comes to wood markets, the world is our oyster. Contiguous to us at the east Is the great
Northwest, the empire's granary. To
possess that land the brawn of Europe
antl the brain of the United States is
pressing in, and all these people must
be housed nnd warmed. Looking to
the future of the pulp trade, the Australian market will he the most Important. There are no suitable pulping
woods on tbat continent, and no water
powers, so thnt Australia Is dependent
upon outside sources for its supply of
paper. If preferential trade duties are
arranged between Canada and Australia���a**, may bo possible In the future
���Hritish Columbia will occupy a- position of great advantage in competing
for the Irade; for British Columbia is
geographically the centre of the empire, and facilities for our shipping will
be materially Increased by the building
of the Irnns-Canadian line, and by the
completion of the isthmian canal.
