German people greets the ruler of the
mighty British world-empire with the
respect due him and perceives In this
visit a new pledge of future peaceful and
friendly development In the relations be
tween our two countries."
King Edward replied In German, ex
pressing thanks on behalf of the Queen
and himself for the welcome accorded
them In Berlin. After reference to the
Emperor's visit to Windsor, he continued:
"With .regard to the aim and desired
result of my visit. Tour Majesty haa
given eloquent expression to my own
feelings and I can therefore only repeat
that our coming is for the purpose of
not only recalling before the world the
close ties of relationship between our
two houses, but also alms at strengthen
ing the friendly relations between our
countries and thus at the preservation of
a general peace, toward which all my
efforts are directed."
The King warmly expressed wishes for
the prosperity of the German Empire and
proposed the health of the Emperor and

GOOD Mr. Sothern, give us no more
Rlchelieus nor Hamlets, or, if thou
wilt persist, for dear Lord's sake do
them in the one-night stands. A light
comedian of excellent and merriest wit
and a romantic actor of rarely brave
pith has turned his course awry to dally
with Denmark's sad-visaged Prince and
Louis' mighty cleric minister. And the
very head and front of Mr. Sothern's
offending was shown to us last night,
when he essayed to play the historic,
dominating figure in Bulwer Lytton'a
Never at any time did he strike the
positive note of genius In his interpre
tation of a part which only the very
great among our actors have been ablo
to make convincing. The play Itself is
and has ever been far from the thing, in
this one instance it Is the most bom
bastic and unnatural of all pseudo-historical
dramas. But there have been
players whom we have seen play, who
were, by sheer application of tReir ac
tor's art. able to make this Cardinal of
France a TItar among diplomats, an
eminently human master of statecraft,
and withal a man. But Mr. Sothern
does not so. True, in his lighter pas
sages he at times touches the spirit of
his role, and In the final rousing of his
powers, when for the country he has

elocutionist, saying the lines without the
force, the unaerstanaing nor wio uuu
sympathy that should underlie a rendi
tion of the classic drama. With a line of
America's greatest who have made this
artificial and tawdry drama of ser(ous
consequence, he suiters lamentably by
comparison. It is to be hoped that so
fine an actor, within his sphere, who has
stepped outside to make experiment with
what he cannot do with credit to him
self, will soon return to the field in
which he shines. Let him do "Dun

William Weil Arrested on Complaint

William Well, a traveling salesman,
said to represent George D. Sulta & Co.,

was arrested last night by Detective
Price at the Oregon Hotel, where he has
been living, on the charge of obtaining
money under false pretenses.

130 Second street, who alleges that Well,

him to produce the money and Weil
could not do so.

PARIS. Feb. 9. France and Germany
today signed a far-reaching agreement
concerning Morocco. Of more import
ance than the actual settlement of pend
ing difficulties and the harmonizing of
views concerning Morocco is the moral
effect of establishing a broad basis of
friendly relations between two nations
which have been separated, so to say.
since the war of 1ST0.
The agreement guarantees the Integrity
of Morocco and insures perfect allegi
ance to the terms of the Algeciras act.
France recognizes Germany's economic
Interests in Morocco, while Germany rec
ognizes the particular political interest
of France there.
France promises to' maintain the Integ
rity and Independence of the Moroccan
Empire, and declares that she is "re
solved to safeguard the economic equal
ity and not to embarrass the commercial
and individual interests of Germany."
Germany, whose interest In Morocco Is
merely economic, recognizes, "that the
particular political interests of France
arc- closely linked to the consolidation of
order and peace in the Interior of Mo
rocco," and she agrees not to Interfere
with thoe? interests.
In conclusion, the signatories promise
neither to pursue nor encourage any
pleasure designed to create an economic
privilege in their favor or In favor of any
other power, and they agree that they
will endeavor to associate their peoples
in commercial enterprises launched in
France Is assured that this accord will
be welcomed In London, St. Petersburg
and Madrid, and she is confident that it
will meet with the approval of the Sultan
of Morocco, to whom it will be Imme
A striking coincidence Is found In the
fact that this agreement was signed at
the moment of the arrival in Berlin of
King Edward, particularly as there is a
strong inclination in diplomatic quarters
to consider the Improvement of Franco
German relations as one of the objects
of this visit.

Brother's 3Jyster!ous Disappearance
Hastens Death or Purchasing
Agent of Corporation.
Charles O. Fitch, purchasing agent for
the Portland Railway. Light & Power
Company, died at his home, 604 Holly
street, last night at 8:30 o'clock, from the
effects of cancer of the stomach. Mr.
Fitch had been ailing for some time and
a fatal outcome of his case was not en
tirely unexpected But was nevertheless a
shock to his many-friends throughout the
city. Mr. Fitch was 49 years old and
leaves a widow and' three sons, the oldest
of whom Is 15 years'. He was a brother-in-law
of Benage Josselyn, president
of the Portland Railway, Light & Power
Mr. Fitch came to Portland in Septem
ber, 1907, and stomach trouble developed in
April of the following year. He un
derwent an operation in that month and
recovered from it but Jt was discovered
that the disease had progressed so far
that nothing could be done to check it.
In November of last year, he again be
came sick and went to his former home,
in Council Bluffs, la. He returned to
Portland just before last Christmas very
much weakened. He kept at work, how
ever, until the severe storm of early Jan
uary started, and had since been con
fined to his home.
The mysterious disappearance of his
brother, B. P. Fitch, while on a trip
from Paris to London last October, preyed
heavily on his mind and caused him con
stant worry- The case of E. P. Fitch
will be recalled by Portland people for
he was sought far and wide by the au
thorities of England, France and the
United States but no trace or mm was
found since he took passage on a train
to London after crossing the English
Channel. A letter written by him while
en route was received here, telling of his
Illness and his intention to go to a hos
pital In London for an operation for ap
pendicitis. Not even his baggage was
ever found, although diligent search was
made for him. Mr. Fitch thought much
of his brother, who was younger than
he, and the disappearance abroad caused
him great worry.
Charles O. Fitch leaves two sisters,
Julia and Anna, In Council Bluffs, la.

Grants Pass Resident Describes His Own Case and Tells
of Cure That Sounds Like a Miracle
A letter was received yesterday at our Portland office, but as the man who wrote
it has not authorized use of his name we cannot mention it, but the facts in the case
can be verified by anyone calling at our office.
"I had been bothered with an eczema for years. I was also suffering with pro
truding and bleeding piles. I had tried all the remedies and been under the care
of the best doctors in the place where I lived. It was decided that nothing but the
surgeon's knife, could relieve the piles.
LOW DOWN IN HEALTH AND WEAK.
"I was then living 25 miles from the Soap Lake. I was so nm down in health
and so. weak that I decided to go to the lake and try to get myself in better shape,
that I might better stand the operation in Spokane.
FACE COVERED WITH SCABS EYES CLOSED
"When I arrived at the lake I was a sight; my face was nearly all covered with
scabs, my eyes so sore I could hardly see. I was obliged to wear a thick pad of cloth
to keep from staining my clothing from the piles.
SAVED FROM OPERATION
"Eight days after I took my first bottle I was compelled to go home on business,
and I was as free of piles arid my skin as smooth and soft as a new-born babe s.
KNOWS OF MANY CURES
"I saw all manner of skin diseases cured there. I helped to carry men and
women in there, so bad with the rheumatism, and saw them leave in a few weeks
well that I wondered why some one did not take hold of this. You will find nothing
quite so good for catarrh of the head, sore throat and all skin diseases, poison ivy
