The British-American conference at Quebec is attracting some attention to itself on account of the persistency with which Canadians are endeavoring to protect their own industries against those of the United States. It seems remarkable that in this age, and in the light of all past history, this idea of protection, as applied to the economic and industrial elements of national life, should continue to have advocates in a conference which has so much to do with a neighborly interestV)f the kind which exists between Canada and this country. There is a geographical line dividing the United States from the British possessions on the north, but it is an arbitrary line, after all. The in terests of the population of the north ern and southern sections of North America are identical. There have been frequent allusions during the past few months to the con dition of "isolation" of the United States with respect to the commerce of the world; and these comments have been associated with the theory that everything we gobbled in our war with Spain was property that should be con served for the benefit of the nation, without regard to reason or conscience or common honesty. The United States of America occu pies a profoundly interesting position with respect to the interests of the world at large. We are at the close of the nineteenth century of the Chris tian era. No other nation that ever existed possessed the resources and the facilities for transportation which this nation possesses today. Students of both ancient and modern history must stand almost overawed when they contemplate the enormous possibilities of this section of the North American continent. And what does it all mean? Centuries have rolled themselves to gether into cycles since human ingenui ty began to beat a pathway for com merce over the circumference of the earth. The United States, as a nation, has had an existence of a little more than one century of all this period, and still the spirit of isolation which domi nated prosperous communities in the old world and brought them finally to ab solute destruction exists among our people today. Returning to the Canadian confer ence we find that, after all, those who control British interests on this side of the Atlantic are about as selfish as we ourselves are. A proposition was made by our representatives for free trade between Canada and the United States for lumber. It was opposed, and big interests came forward protesting against It fiom Canadian lumbermen. This really seems to be the depth of sil liness. With all the forests of the United States denuded of timber and with magnificent growths existing within the Canadian boundaries, why should the Canadian dealer object to free trade between these countries in that com modity? The thoughtful, practical people of the United States, whose lives are de voted to the upbuilding of its indus trial worth, must realize the fact that the time has come when this great country must perform its part in the distribution of its products throughout the entire world. It is not necessary, in this connection, to review the his tory of the Republican party in its as sociation with the spirit of protection to home industries which has domi nated the policy of the past. Located In northern latitudes, between the At lantic and Pacific oceans, and thor oughly planted and imbedded with everything which can contribute to ma terial production, this country has not its equal on earth. It seems, almost, that it was a preserve instituted by the Almighty for the rounding out of the great work designed at the period of creation. We have had much in the way of twaddle in the press, and in the pulpit in regard to "manifest destiny." These words have been used as a sort of ex cuse for the policy of brigandage which seems to have seized upon this people and the government. May it not be well to suggest that the "manifest destiny" of the United States is to at tend strictly to business; to conduct that business after the most common sense and honest fashion, and in a man ner which shall afford the freest inter course among the nations of the world, with as few impediments as possible. Snuff Out His Candle The candidacy of Frederick C. Ste ven?, on the Republican ticket for con gressman is a piece of that same ma chine politics which The Globe has pointed out as existing in Ramsey county in the Republican organization. The people of this city are being made to pay for his campaign to practically the same extent as in th^ county cam paign. The difference between the con vention that nominated Mr. Stevens and that which was held in Market hall two weeks ago was only in so far as it af- f i c-U d different territory. It was es sentially a convention of officeholders. The Ramsey county delegation included practically all of the county employes whose names were given as partici pants in the county convention. The del egations from other counties were made up of postmasters and other federal ap pointees. Mr. Stevens was renominated as any other man would have been who had control of the machinery. He holds the place In trust for Ed. Rogers and will give it up when Mr. Rogers gets around to accepUthe nomination. Mr. Stevens cannot be said to have earned the nomination. He has a record locally that would not bear inspection, and which would prevent his reniomina tion if the rank and file of the Republi cans had been called upon to make a choice of a candidate. The convention called to nominate him was located at a point so distant from St. Paul that protests could not be heard, let alone be made by the general public. They did not dare to hold the convention in St. Paul on account of the local feeling for it has yet been forgotten by the people that Stevens and Blckel managed the affairs of the Minnesota Savings bank. A couple of thousand depositors with shortened purses and long memories might have taken a hand in the convention had It been held in St. Paul — and that would have em barassed Mr. Stevens' friends. Mr. Stevens was not renominated for his services in congress. He accom plished practically nothing during his term. He voted aye on party measures, but was otherwise a cipher in the house. He is being boomed locally be cause the public is supposed to know nothing about the methods of securing appropriations for public works, and he is credited by his party press with having secured afi additional appro- THE ST. PAUI, GLOBE— THURSDAY — OCTOBER 6, 1893. priation for the new federal building. It will occur to most people that what he would have done if he had any in fluence would hiave been to secure the means for completing- the federal build ing, and then providing for an enlarge ment of the structure. This commu nity is getting tired of having the Re publican congressional platform point with pride to the federal building.. It begins to look as though the building was originally started, and is now car ried along for the sole purpose of be ing used as a foundation for resolu tions on which Republican conventions can go before the public. Isn't it about time to retire Mr. Stevens from the public gaze? For t»io Good* of St. Paul. The Schubert club is a musical or ganization which deserves the fullest consideration at the hands of the people of St. Paul. The public library is an institution entitled to far more generous attention than it has ever yet received from the citizens of St. Paul. A propo sition has been made whose immediate purpose is to furnish a series of musi cal entertainments, such as this city has never been privileged to enjoy, ana whose ultimate object is the promotion of the fund for the welfare of the pub lic library. It has gone so far — indeed, the contracts, which involve no incon siderable sums of money, have already been signed — that it could not be aban doned without positive harm to the reputation of the city. In a communication to The Globe, which will be found in another column, Mr. Richards Gordon gives expression to the apprehension that the proposed library concerts will to some degree injuriously affect the programme of en tertainments in process of construction by the Schubert club. We apprehend that nothing could be farther from the thoughts of those who are Interested in the library entertainments than the idea of injuring the Schubert club. Is this not a situation where the greatest benefit can be conferred upon St. Paul by a union of interests and the adoption of that plan which prom ises to bring hither some of the most famous artists of the musical world? Minneapolis ought no longer to be the mecca of the musical public of St. Paul. The opportunity certainly seems to be presented for this city to establish its own status as an artistic center, ana so public spirited a citizen as Mr. Gor don cannot, upon further reflection, fail to realize that fact. That which prom ises to promote the best interests of St. Paul will, we are confident, receive his most cordial support, and that, meaming as it must the co-operation of the Schubert club, assures the success of this particular plan for helping the public library fund. The spirit of the enlargement of commerce has recently taken hold of the Philadelphia board of trade. This body has adopted resolutions urging congress to consider, at the approach ing session, what action is needed to restore to the United States the ocean carrying trade In vessels sailing under the American flag.

Their number in St. Paul is comparatively small, and It is customary for the city where the convention is held to entertain delegates free of charge. It is ex pected that about 500 will be in attendance, besides many visitors, who will pay for their entertainment. A call has been made to the churches to help in this work. The large churches have been asked to entertain twenty, and the smaller ones ten, delegates. It will repay any one who can open his home to these women.

There is something very pathetic in con templating the progressive stages by which the Democratic party has ceased to be Dem ocratic in all but its name. With its restoration to power, through the accidental election of Cleveland in ISB4, its career of usefulness and distinction came practically to an end. It could not bear success and power. Twenty-five years of compulsory exile from the seat of authority taught it nothing. The spoils of victory made it drunk.

To The St. Paul Globe. A golden opportunity is at hand for the state university of Minnesota to raise its rank in science quite a little. It is a chauca which the regents of the univeraity have of setting apart an important area of pine tim ber land as a demonstration forest f:r use of the school of forestry connected with the agricultural college and experiment station. In general the university lar.d3 must be sold by the land commissioner (state auditor), a3 other lands which were granted to the stat3 by the United States for educational purposes are sold; but there were certain ©lit spring lands belonging to the university which were left in the exclusive control of the regeUs of the university. Some of the^e salt sprin? lands a number of years ago were r elinqui*.i ed to «cttle>s who had made improvement? upon them, and in lieu thereof the Unit d States secretary of the interior has lately certified to the state upwards of three thou sand acres of valuable lands, dca'gnat d as university salt springs Indemnity land..^Thta important acquisition was acozmp .shed through the long continued indofatigab.e c - forts of Mr. W.

There are areas of wholly white pine, of wholly Norway pine, the two mixed f and again both sort* mixed with hard wood. The pine trees vary from a foot to two feet and upwards in diameter, and the more mature pines are about 100 years old and some are over 100 feet in height The pine will average all the way from 100,000 feet to 400,000 feet on forty acres; there is also much young pine and the sit uation is favorable for protection against fire and theft. If the pine on thie tend should ba ho a to the highest bidder and lumbered in the usual way the proceeds would amount to several thousand dollars; but the timber would be cut clean, It would be liable be burned over the chances for reproduction of forest would be very poor, and, wcrss than a:l, the thin coat of soil over much of the area would be washed away and nothing left but a des-.rt of naked rock. If. on the other hand, it should be placed under the charge of the ex periment station for the practice of the school of forestry, it could in the end be made to yield a hundred-fold more revenue t> tie university.

WHEELER AND BOYNTON SAY THE CAMPS WERE EL.YSIAN BOWERS ARRANGEMENTS PERFECT Water, According? to Gen. Doynton, AY«« u» Pure as Crystal— Admits Three Hundred Carloads of Beer Were Sold at Chlcltainaaga- Hundreds of Cases of Typhoid, but That Did Not Alarm Him. WASHINGTON, Oct. s.— Gen. Wheel er completed his testimony before the was investigation committee today, and wae followed by Gen. H. V. Boynton, who was still on the stand when the day's session closed. Gen. Wheeler in today's statement dealt entirely with the condition of Camp Wikoff, and Gen- Boynton's with those at Camp Thomas, where he is now in command. Gen. Boynton described in detail the pro visions for supplying the Georgia camp with water, and told many interesting facts abouf the locations of troops, and about the precautions taken to care for and provide for them where sickness existed. The men wasted more food than was consumed during the Civil War during the siege of Chattanooga, and he eulogized the services of the war department throughout. Gen. Wheeler said he had seen a statement from Dr. E. R. Smith to the effect that the drinking water was con taminated. He had an examination made, not only by the surgeons, but by Col. Smart, an expert, and they had informed him that the water was pure. He considered the water supply ade quate and pure, and that the water was well distributed. He admitted that at first there was a scarcity of clean bed linen for typhoid and other pa tients. He had courted the closest in spection from visitors, and had invited correspondents to inspect the hospitals and interview the men with a view of having their wants relieved, if they had any. GEN. BOYNTON TESTIFIES. Gen. H. V. Boynton took the stand in the afternoon. Gen. Boynton in his capacity as chairman of the park com mission, had 'been familiar with the park for eight years, and said to Gen. Beaver that it had always been con sidered one of the most healthy spots in the country. There had been few deaths in the park force, and never a case of typhoid fever, though 300 men had been employed at one time on the roads. Out of 2,300 men employed in the park at various times there had only been seven deaths and none from ty phoid fever. He had examined the statistics for the census year 1890, and had found that in the two counties in which the park is situated there had been only twelve cases of typhoid fever. There were three sources for the water sup ply. The first of these is a number of springs, the second the river and the third artisian wells. There are now t ft rty-six of these, and there were nine when the camp site was selected. Tne springs, so far as he knew, were Inex haustible and only one of them had been exhausted during the occupancy of the camp by the troops. The wells were also apparently inexhaustible. In addition to these 2,200,000 gallons were pumped every twenty-four hours from the river, and this water distributed through the camp by means of pipes. The river water supply was not desig nated originally for drinking purposes, but for cooking. HIGH-GRADE WATEIR. Gen. Boynton said that there was plenty of water and of good quality for the samples had been brought in from the springs four or five miles out. This was done because of suspicions of surgeons in the camp. When the men became sick the surgeons insisted on going away from the camp for water, and this was done, notwith standing the analysis showed the water to be pure. He said there were no sinks nearer the wells than 200 feet. The site of the camp was on clay, and the wells were drilled through solid rock. It was, therefore, impossible for them to be polluted from the sinks. In response to an inquiry from Capt. Howell, he said the only typhoid fever in the camp was brought in from the outside. Typhoid fever in the camp did not excite serious attention until about the middle of July, when the cases aver aged about two per 1,000. It afterwards increased until there were about 400 cases among the 50,000 men. He said he had given especial attention to the hospital of the second division of the Third corps, as it had received the spp cial attack of the able and influential sensational press. He had found that out of 2,426 cases in this hospital there had been only 276 cases of typhoid. The fever had, in all cases, been of a mild character. At one time after measles broke out in the camp, the hospitals were crowded, though he did not think such had been the case at any other time. Practically all the sickness was among volunteers. The regulars were not sick. Asked if eagh regiment had a sutler Gen. Boynton replied: "They had something worse than a sutler, each one had a cant&en." CARLOADS OF BEER. He said that 372 cars-loads of beer had been sold in the camp. Capt. Howell asked about whisky sales, and Gen. Boynton replied that it had been found difficult to entirely cut out the very sharp moonshiners from Capt. Howell's state. It was also a fact thiat Chattanooga was a splendid town, but the saloons were open day and night, while on Sunday they were "closed on the outside and open on the inside." Gen. Boynton spoke in especial com mendation of the Young Mens' Chris tian association tents, which, he said, were the best things in the .service. On j the other hand he condemned the out side drinking houses where he said much slop was sold that was worse than whisky. He remarked in this connection that Gov. Atkinson, and the Georgia authorities had 00-operated with the military authorities in the most exemplary manner to suppress these institutions. He also said there wias n>o lack of transporation especially in coming in. All arrived in Pullman cars or in day coaches, It was not as it was in the Civil war when the box car was good enough. Most of the complaints were, he said, from the typhoid fever patients, who were of course kept on low rations as a medi cal precaution. There was never any shortage of rations, the newspaper statements to the contrary notwith standing. Gen. Boynton Will continue his testi mony tomorrow. MR. ALGER'S REPLY.

Mr. Richards Gordon Discvssea tho Plan of Mr. Felrthanaer. To The St. Paul Globe: Referring to the scheme of Mr. Feldhaiiser, outlined in your issue of today, the writer believes the intention Is In the right direc tion, but resp3ctfully suggests the propriety of due consideration on the part of its author and ind:rsers as to whether this scheme. If carried out. may not materially Injure the cause of music in this city without any certain benefit to the cause which Mr. Feld hauser has so enthusiastically t spoused. The Schubert club, a most worthy and, successful organization, has existed in this city for ten years, and from small beginnings has attained a recognized place among insti tutions which make for progress i:i tlia capital city. Its influence has at all times been educational in a mast effective d?gr.e, and the writer believes that it has been the most potent factor in the advancement of tha cause of music that has ever existed among us. It seems unnecessary to more than allude to Its great value and importance, whi h have been so long and favorably recognized by this community, and taking this for granted I respectfully request Mr. Feldhau*er to pause and consider what the effect of tha prosecution of his scheme would be upon tha fortunes of the Schubert club. The writer believes that it would be most disastrous, and that Mr. Feldhauser, thinking only of the librpry fund, has not give l it the con sideration it deserves. The Schubert elul is already In the field with increiasd energy and resources. A chorus of 150 to MO vo!ce»- has been organized, and three choral and orchestral concerts, assisted by thre? of tb« artists mentioned by Mr. Feldhauser, and two recitals by Rosenthal and the KneUel quar tette are projected in addition to the regular recitals of the club (sixteen afternoon and throe evening recitals). The writer disclaims any Intention inimi cal to the library scheme, but feels it a duty to the cause of muslo and the musioal inter ests of this community, to briefly \,r mat th«j subject to all concerned as it a:p.ar3 to him, in the hope that so worthy an organiza tion as the Schubert club may net ba strangled by inconsiderate, if well meaning, competition. — Richards Gordon.
