Chinese delegation to the arms limita
tion and Far East conference today of
ficially notified the powers at the
armament conference that China In
tends to demand territorial integrity and
political and administrative independ
ence from the conference.
The notice was served upon the other
powers in the secret session of the com
mittee on Kar Eastern problems at Its
session today in the shape of a compre
hensive statement from the delegation
outlining the principles which the Chi
nese believe should govern considera
tion of Chinese questions.
The main points officially outlined by
the Chinese were :
1 (a) The powers engage to respect
and observe the territorial integrity and
political and administrative . indepen
dence of the Chinese republic.
(b) China on her part is prepared to
give an undertaking not to alienate or
lease any portion of her territory or
littoral to any power.
Z China being in full accord with the
principles of the so-called "open door"
or equal opportunity foV the commerce
and Industry of all nations having treaty
relations with China, is prepared to ac
cept and apply it on all parts of the
Chinese republic without exception.
3 With a view to strengthening mu
tual confidence and maintaining peace
in the Pacific and the Far East the
powers agree not to conclude between
themselves any treaty or agreement di
rectly affecting China or the general
peace in these regions without previously
notifying China and giving to her an
opportunity to participate.
4 All special rights, privileges, im
munities or commitments, whatever the
character or contractural basis, claimed
by any of the powers or in relating to
China are to be declared, and all such
or fature claims not so made known,
are to be deemed null and void. The
rights, privileges, immunities and com
mitments now known or to be declared.
are to be examined with a view to de
termining their scope and validity and
if valid, to harmonize them -with one
another and with the principles declared
by this conference.

was allowed to talk a tenor leaped .
to his feet and sung a Preach trans- -lation
of what Mr. Hughes had Just
-Then Mr. Balfour made .the longest .
speech or the' day. and he was followed
by Messrs. Kato. Schanxer and Briand.'.
Mr -Kato give his speeches In Japanese Y
and Mr. Schanxer spoke in what he -thinks
is English and of course M. ?

The boys finally
I j? five me a pass t'jis
v morning and I was
-t ' ' f amonpt the first
Z-? ,, I to arrive in the
O. " m I hall, but pretty soon
the other newspapermen begin dropping
in and several of them wore frock coats
which would never be tolerated in the
press stand at the world's series. Per
sonly I was married' at ntght and have
got just a gray business suit for day
The man aetting next to me pointed
out the delegates of the different power
as they come in and took their places
at the tables which looked like they had
been borrowed for the occasion from the
hotel commercial writing room. The
delegate that .took my eye waa -Mr.'
Schanxer from Italy who looks like one
of the apostles. I asked my informer
how an Italian come to have the name
Schanxer and he says it was because
he come from Trieste. It seems a
resonable explanation though pemonly
I never was In Trieste tuid don't know
tha Schanser boys. - The delegate next
to Mr. He nan zer was also quite a sight
as he was a Hindu named Sastri who
had just been getting a shampoo and
the barber forgot to take the towel
off hU head. ' ..--.'
Chairman Hughes got tip and asked
If anybody wanted to reply to what hs
bad to say at Saturday's meeting and
wo was aoi in . a sweat to bear Irom
race. All the speakers was tenors ex
cept Messrs. Hughes and Briand.
Well anyway they all said they was -1
agreeable to the Idea of cutting down
the navies and if we do have a war with '
Japan it begms .to .look- tike it would X
haJfto be fought with souvenir post
cards. I thought Mr. Balfour made a .
very eloquent speech but one man, who '.
1 nave now had the pleasure of imf -.
ing. says that tf you waa to tell Mr. Bai
four. that he had made'' an eloquent .".
speech be would feel vary much hurt
and promise to not forget himself tttt
time. After the five great powers bast .'
been heard from Mr. Hughes adjourned '
tne meeting though me delegates from
Portugal and Holland sat there with
their tongues oat and ready for artfrrn , '
I -am told that the rest of tha sesaioa '
is libel to be held in secret and not eves -
newspaper men will be admitted which -
suits me' ok as they don't alloay smok-
