Feared That Germany Will  Not Yield to France's  Demands.  ���������Paris,     Sept.    10.*��������� Another  crisis  has    arisen  in ..negotiations between  France and Germany  relative to  the  Moroccan   conference.    This  has   resulted   in  a sii.si.oii--.ion  of  the  meeting ^between sDerosen  (the new German   minister  to Morocco;  and M.  K-oyoil  (former governor oi   Algeria)  Tiie special  plcnipot-wiliairies  t>f Gci-  Hiany and  France,    'Iheir last  meeting occurred  three days ago,       and  there  is  no present  sign  of  resumption of their conferences.  Derosen, ui  the meantime, is seeking instructions  " from Berlin," but  the extended delay  begins to excite apprehension, in otti-  ciai .quartets   that - Germany -     will  not yield  upon points  which  France  considers  to  be essential.  , . IJoth sides show anxiety, ami tlie,  strain' promises to affect the Bourse  seriously. However, the foreign oflice  continues to view the situation' as  susceptible of adjustment and specifically denies the alarmist-report in  French, newspapers that Germany demands include Port of Mogador, '���������up*-  ,on  the    Atlantic coast,of  Morocco.  Following   is an oflicial statement  made to the Associated * Press on the  subject:   '-The question of the cession1*]  of  Port  of Mogador does  not enter  "in. the negotiations in any. form, for  the    .obvious  reason  Uiat  Germany  " and  France  in  their  exchange   ���������  of'  KOMURA  SUIQ1DING  Said to be Taking His Own  Life to Avoid  Disgrace  Portland, Ore., Sept. 18.-A special fiom Souix City, Iowa, says  that Baron Komura, the Japanese  peace plenipotentiary, ie committing  slow suicide, according to Tak-ashita  a highly educated Japanese now in  Souix City. Today he inquired solicitously regarding the condition ��������� of  Komura. He was told he was no  worse.  "But he will never get well,"  replied Takashita,     slowly. "When the  message was clicked,over the    cable  that my "countrymen  were preparing  to receive him with funeral rites, I  knew he would never return to Japan,    lie  doubtless   has   learned   this  already by private telegrams, tt-t'was  our nation's way of'telling him that  he     was in     disgrace,    and that ho1)  could, only atone for it ,by     showing  through his  own   death  that he was.  still a hero and a patr.ot.   You Americans little, realize what Hari Ka-  ri means - to us.   Komura   knew  full  well  that there was one course left.  Knowing that Americans   would  not  understand ,  his      act-and  that,      it  would, he  viewed  here as  ardisgrace,  he could not commit Ilari  Kari     In  the    usual    manner. He  accordingly  had recourse to some of the powerful  though  subtle' drugs   which  Japanese    statesmen , and  soldiers' are  familiar with.  It  produces fear,  anil  makes    it   , appear thai he is dying  6f������diseasei  but when the end comes,  our countrymen  will  understand  and  will once, more acclaim him a hero."  , notes: have specifically agreed to  maintain the integrity of Moroccan  -territory. Therefore it is impossible  to negotiate upon the cession , of  Mogador or any . other rpart of  Moroccan territoiy."  ���������9      -  INSPECTORS REAIOVED FOR  '-,'  SMUGGLING  CHINAMEN..  ���������' Washington, D.C., Sept.- 19.��������� The  department of ��������� Commerce and Labor  ���������today issued an order removing Ed-  'ward BolU and Chailes W.

St.  Petersburg,  Sept.   19.���������The removal of retailtory duties ,of American   imports  has' already  proved      a  great    stimulus   to   American   trade  here.   The agents of American houses have wired directions for tho ship  ment  of engines,   pumps,   and  other  machinery as soon    as the/>rder  re-  -  scinding the duties  takes effect.  The  prompt action of  the agents is necessary in order to land at Cronstadt  before the close of navigation,  so as  to  avoid  the heavy costs  of transhipment  from  the   ice-free   ports   in  rthe Southern Baltic,,and also in order  to take advantage of  the rates  under    existing treaties because  before  navigation  is re-opened  the new  .and higher scale of duties,  based on  the  treaty recently made with Germany,   will   he in effect.  SENATOR  ELKINS ON  RAILROAD LEGISLATION.  New York,-Sept. Ill-Senator Stc-  pheo B. Elkins, of West Virginia, i.s  in New York and has been in-consultation here with, various railroad  men and.business men on the subject  ��������� of -railroad and tariff legislation to  be considered hy congress in the  tlio coining session. As chairman of  the Senate Committee of -inter-state'  commerce, Mr. Elkins will have  charge    of all       railroad, legisia.  .' tion. in the Senate. He predicts that  ���������a rate, regulation 'bill will pass  this winter, hut feels that a bitter  fight, will ensue when the subject of  tariff revision is considered. The  Senator said yesterday:  ^The committee, of which I     am  ....chajrnian,   and  which  will   frame     a  rate  regulation  this  winter,   is  prepared    for  its  work and ^will  meet  two   week's   in  advance of  the  regular  session   for  the   purpose  of  preparing the hill:     Every member     of  the committee knows exactly where  lie stands  upon this question, and  I  think by December first we' will have  a bill  ready  for  introduction.   I    regard decisive action this session   as  Sbeyond 'question,  TlIAT.APrEAt FOR.  ~' X  '"'   " ASSISTANCE.  The following letter from the pre  sident of the W.F.M. on the subject  of the recent appeal for assistance  in Ladysmith appeared in last evening's Free Press:  Editor Free Press,���������There was   ' a  committee of the"WestcTifFederatioit  of-Miners appointed  to goto Lady-  sinith  to ask for financial ..assistance  but when .the committee went around  on  Saturday morning,, they      found  that the United -Mine/ Workers'    appeal posted on "the, bank.    Then'.the  committee held a council  with themselves,", awl decided-* Jto return on the  noon train, as the appeal -of tho United  Mine  Workers   for  financial \ assistance was  for tlie benefit of miners     of   Nanaimo,  and people twho  were     not    in  their-ranks.   I have  heard of an appeal of this  kind ^boing  issued  by tlie United Mine Workers  before,  but this is the first   time    I  have,*ever seen acoj-y of it,   .  Now, Mr.  Editor,   I have spoken to  a large number of  people,  and have  never     met any one. who has-received  any assistance  whatever,   outside of  the ranks of the United Mine Workers.    I know  for my part,   I have not  received any, nor do I wish any that  has  to be  begged.    What   I want    to  know now  is,  are the United Mine  Workers   sharing  their  little      mite  wuth      the  people  who  are affected  by the     strike, or lockout? I know  that in the appeal,  there are gross  misrepresentations  of  the   facts,   for  I know there are a lot of people who  do not want from  the United Mine  Workers any support  that  they, have  to go around aiid  beg for.  I am surprised  to see the names of some of  the committee, signed to the appeal,  when they know that a great portion  of the aj>peal     is untrue,  especially  the part     referring*  to the  Western.  Federation of Miners  whom they accuse of having only twenty-five members, and  being weak.    For  the lat-.  tor reason, they pay, ,the majority of  men thought it advisable to join the  "United  Mine Workers.    Now,  let me  see.what.was the cause of the Western. Federation  becoming* weak.   The .  Facts are  that the majority of mem-.]  hers of.the United Mine Workers refused to pay their assessment to the  union,  when their brothers  were   in  need  in  Colorado.    Now the  majority   belonging- to   the   United      Mine  M'orkec-s to day were unogganiz*cd for  nearly  a year. -  Then  the  organizers  of     the United Mine Workers came  here to try and organize them, and  there were nearly one, bund red joined  at  that  time,    and  more kept dropping  in      until  the  present  trouble  arose     when nearly the whole bunch  stampeded into  the United Mi-neWor  kers,  when they heard  of the bone-  fits     that wore  to be given   out by  th'at  organization.    Now,   when  tlie  majority  that are boosting  the United Mine Workers here have-to pay  the assessment to that organization,  t-hey will drop out of it, even if they  have only one dollar   to pay.  In regard    to the Western  Federation of  Miners having a membership of 15, I  may say that the Federation  has between eighty and ninety members is  good  standing.   The United    Mine  PLENIPOTENTIARIES RE'  TURNING HOME  M. Witte and His   Party  Arrire    in raris  Today  Following    His    Express  Wish There is No Formal Rectption  Taris,  Sept.  19.���������M. Witte, accompanied   by    his   wife  and   daughter,  and several members  of  the Russian  mission,  arrived  here  today  after ������ a.  tedious  night' ride  from   Cherbourg-.  Following the    express ���������wish  of the  Russian   statesman,   there   was      no  formal    reception,   only  a few  intimate friends  gathering  at  Northern  Railway* station.     A crowd of travellers  respectfully  saluted  M.   Witte,  who   bowed    his   acknowledgements.  He, appeared to be much fatigued  by  the voyage     as he cnteied an automobile     and was conducted  to Hotel  Bristol.   M. Witle will  make a-biief  stay     in Paris.     conferring      with  Ambassador    Neligoff, and  probably  also President  Loubct and. Premier -j  Rouvier.    Professor  Itemartins,   who  is already here, will leave Paris tomorrow   for  Berlin,   arriving  in  St.  Petersburg on  Saturday.  ��������� ��������� ���������    ��������� ������������������ ,  PACKING  SOCK EYES ON  ON THE FRASER RIVER.  Press    despatches -from Vancouver  say:"    The  Fraser  river   is   full     of  sockcyes, and ten canneries" are packing today to the full capacity      of  their  respective   plants,- according to  reports received from , Steveston and  other cannery centres Saturday. The  average  ��������� catch of    sockeyes  Friday  night    was -probably  two  hundred  fish to the boat, although  when all  the boats are in late Saturday that  figure  may  have  been < reduced.   The  boats arriving early at  the cannery  all had good catches, ami the  fishermen  reported   that   the   water"     is  teeming    with salmon.     If the late  run^of sockeyes  continues  the  Fras--  er river pack wVll bo largely increased  over  the eight hundred, thousand  cases put up, at the'dose of tho regular fishing season on  August ������;").  Last night at midnight the close  season on sockeyes expired, and the  boats winch pus out from the canneries carried nets of six-inch mesh.  The cohoes are reported to he running fairly well. On the maJ'.i Fraser river seven canneries are packing  sockeyes, one cannery is working ou  the North Arm and the Great Northern and Eagle Harbor plants on  English Bay and Howe -Sound arc also working.  The price of cohoes was fixed Saturday by the can tiers at fifteen cents  and ten cents for sockeyes. The latter price is the same as that which  ruled during the month of August.  DISAPPOINTMENT   WAS  BEND  Has Saved   the Japanese  People Feverish Intoxication  There are no Bubble Enterprises as  There Were  Before  Tokio,  Sept.   19.���������(noon.)��������� Despite  the  fact  that  the ebullition  of popular dissatisfaction over the peace ar-  rangenieaits continues  unal-rated, there  arc indications that the business contingent  is  slowly s-oar'-ng down. The  capital   intended  for new enterprises,  following the successful conclusion of  the ��������� treaty    of    peace,  is  gradually  coming into the hanks as depesits in  amounts      which  arc  likely  to tower  the    rate of  interest.   The profound  disappointment      which lias  prevailed  has  at least  proved  a benefit  lo  the  extent of saving the |>eople from any  feverish     intoxication,    resulting   in  bubble  enterprises like those which  accompanied     the    close of the war  with   China.    The money class  have  resumed the attitude of cautious -frugality  which  guided  nil  transactions  during   the   war.   The   financial'.outlook  is  not gloomy and capital'    is  impatiently     waiting    solid   investments. ,  PARKER IN  NEW YORK  Tells ; Associated    Press of  His Admiration of Northwest Canada  New York,  Sept.   19���������Sir  Gilbert  Parker, author, playwright and (member of .parliament,   i.s  in New  York  on his way  to England  after spending several  weeks  in  Canada...

General   Manager   Pease  left  will  for  the coast  yesterday  morning    to  look over the groun-d.  t Mayor Co.'urn was in lhe chair  and at the opening made a neat  siieech in which he referred to the obf  jec-t of the entertainment and predicted success for the club at Portland.  Mrs. Watts played a very pretty  piano-forte solo, and played it well,  deserving the loud applause with which  her efforts were greeted.  Miss Butler followed with a pretty  song rendered very sweetly, and Miss  Leask was. in her usual splendid form  and delighted the audience with one  of her comical .Scotch recitations.  Mrs. Butler, of Victoria, charmed  the audience with a perfect rendering  of a sparkling ballade and was heartily recalled, responding with Merguc-  r'.t-e.  Mr. IT. Thornicy recited a pathetic  recitation entitled, The Old Minstrel,  and his efforts were deserving of the  applause they received. Mr. I. Wliit-  enmbes cornet solo was played to  perfection. He gave "Anchored," in  his best style, which is saying a lot,  and being vociferously applauded ob -  uged with   a verse of Alice,  Miss E; Clay sang, Oh, Listen to  the Big Brass Band, with a vim, and  upon encore gave a delightful little  coon song.  A duet by Mesdavucs Butler and  Reid was very pretty, and a repetition was demanded and given.  After a pretty and well played instrumental duet by the Misses, Bryden  Mr- A. Smith brought the program to  a oiose by a wen rendered song to his  own piano accompaniment.  Miss Clay played the accompaniments very brilliantly,  pire  'sweay 'SJJVE     'su5qdo.iK      -sir*  The     hall was     speedily cleared  of  chairs and     a large number of young  people     commenced  dancing,  Robertson's orchestra    furnishing first class  music.

On  arrival,   the  Sultan  was    con-  'ducted    to  his scat,  and   surrounded  iby  the Prime.  Minister  and all    the  .other court   dignitaries.    Then seven  5ncense-beaiei.s   were  ushered  in  and  ranged   themselves   in   front   of   him,  remaining  there   for  about  five  minutes, at the end of which time their  places were taken  by  seven  fan-hearers,   each   holding  a beautiful   fan  of  peacock   featheis.
