of other powers to kcop down the
total of their claims to tho amount
which tho financial experts, headed
by Sir Ilohert Hart, bavn lf.eMr.ri in
ho within the ability of China to pay.
Tho United States government has
felt that tho total Indemnity claimed
should not exceed 40,000,000, and
has steadfastly spnght to mako that
figure tho outside limit of tho claim.
For Itself, the state department claims
z.., indomnlty, and It has sup
plied Mr. Ilockhlll with data for tho
presentation of an Itemized account
showing tha expenditures mado by tho
government for transportation of our
military contingent in China, Its
representations of Mr. Ilockhlll been

tho formidable rebellion which has
broken out under tho leadership of
General Tung Fu Sinn In Slien SI

i Tho sentiment of tho provincial

J70.000 Mexican currency, now In the
hands of tlio present government or
Negros, between mo proposea prov-
inces of Occidental nnd Oriental Ne-
pros. Tho bono of contention has
been that the commission set npart
two-thirds of this fund for Occidental
and one-third for Oriental Negros,
tho difference In tho nraounts to bo
offset by taxes still unpaid nt Baco-
Uo. A resolution In favor of the re-
organization of tho two provinces has

Has Reopened .Negotiations With
the British.
The Boer General, Learning That the Free
Stater's Intellect Had Weakened, Ai
turned Full Reiponilbllily.
CAPE TOWN, April 12. General
Botha has reopened negotiations with
tho British for peace. It is understood
here thnt although General Dewet, In
his recont Interview with " General
Botha, refused to surrender, General
Botha regarding him as Irresponsible,
undertakes to ncgotiato in behalf of
tho entire Boer forces. Tho British
authorities here consider that if Gen
eral Botha surrenders, Dewet's fol
lowing can be easily taken.
As explained "here, this action was
determined In part by General Botha's
discovery nt a recent meeting that
General Dewet's Intellect had weak
ened, that his influenco with his fol
lowers was diminishing and that con
tinuance of tho campaign, In view of
General Dewet's irresponsibility, rest
ed with General Botha alone.
Russia Gives Another Proof of
PARIS, April 12. Tho Important
festivities attending President Lou
bet's visit to tho Riviera were
brought to a climax today In the
double naval demonstration at Ville
francbo and Toulon. Both proved
splendid spectacles. Tho profuse dec
orations at Toulon, tho flotillas of
pleasure boats flitting about the har
bor, the gaily dressed warships lying
In tho roadstead and the animation of
the Immense crowds of strangers Jost-
llnf- ,inn nnnthnr In thn Btrnnta nnil
along the wharves Imparted a coloi
and plcturesqueness to the scene
which outvied the situation at Vllle
tranche. The French peoplo, however, j
derive as much pleasure from the In
cidents at Vlllefranche as from the
meeting of M. Loubet and the Duke
of Genoa at Toulon.
"The Russian squadron," says Le
Journal des Debats, "saluted the pres
ident on his departure for Toulon so
that Russia will be associated as com
pletely as could be desired with the
fetes on the Riviera. Those who have
spoken about the coolness of two
friendly and allied countries are now
compelled to admit that they took the
desire for the reality. Those who con-1
tended that Russia wished to manifest
hostility toward the Franco-Italian
rapprochement now have proof to the
contrary In the fact that the Russians
camo to salute the president at the
very moment when the fetes nt Tou
lon, sealing this rapprochement, were
about to take place."

mer, as in past seasons, in co-opera
tlon with British -warships, which
