plague outbreak. It appears that the
Chinese claims are less than was at
first estimated, and that the totak of
the Chinese and Japanese claims are,
approximately, 91,800,000. The Chi
nese government has not been in a
condition, of late, to exert preasnre in
behalf of the claims of its citiaens, bnt
the Japanese authorities have been ac
