Mr. Rockhlll principal effort acting

which tho financial exports, heaoea
by Sir Robert Hart, havo decided to
be within tho ability of China to pay.
The United States government haa
felt that the total Indemnity claimed
should not exceed 40,000,000, and
has steadfastly sought to make that
figure the outside limit or too ciaim.

the United States government stands
wllllna- to make a heavy cut in it
claim, provided the other nations rep

possible. If Mr. Rockhlll can inauc)
