CHINA HOLDING OUT
IlreaKs Off Negotiations Regard'
ASKS FOR MORE LIBERAL TERMS
Objects to tho Restriction Placed on
Merchants, Travelers and Stu
dents Now Admitted.
Washington, April 27. Negotia
tions between tho United States and
China for a treaty restricting tho im
migration ol Chinese to this country
havo practically been abandoned. It
lias been found impossible, by the rep
resentatives of the two governments to
reach a common ground of agreement.
Tho whole subject, therefore, is being
held in abeyance until W. W. Hock
hill, tho recenty appointed minister of
tho United States to China, shall ar
rlvo in l'ckin. It is expected that ho
will take up tho matter directly with
the Chlneso government.
When Wu Ting Fang was minister of
China to this capital, he made an ex
haustive study of tho Chinese immigra
tion question, ascertaining very pre
cisely, among other things, tho Ameri
can point of view. He maintained con
sistently tho injustice of the restric
tions thrown by this government
around tho immigration of Chinese, but
was unable to accomplish anything in
tho way of lowering the barriers dur
ing his ro jour n here. In China he is
now in a position to make it difficult,
it not absolutely impossible, to nego
tiate a treaty unless the convention
shall have incorporated in it certain
provisions for which the Chinese gov
China is anxious to obtain in the
proposed treaty liberal definitions of
tho terms "merchants," "travelers,"
and "students," in order to relieve
such classes ot embarrassment on their
arrival in the United State.
DEAL WITH LOOMIS.
Assistant Secretary of State's Con
nection with Proposed Loan.
Columbus, O., April 27. President
C.F.Mayer, of the First National bank
of Columbus, this afternoon told the
story of the Venezuelan loan features
of tho charge against Assistant Secre
tary of State Loomis. Mr. Mayer is
president of a syndicate which has for
some time been negotiating with Vene
zuela for floating the 136,000.000 loan,
that French, German, English and
other loans might be taken up.
Ms. Mayer says negotiations were
made with Mr. Loomis, when minister
to Venezuela, to act as the representa
tive of this syndicate, but he raid Mr.
Loomis intended to resign as minister
to Venezuela on accepting employment
with th syndicate. The syndicate
was to receive a profit of $7 000,000
net for floating the loan ami was to
have tho receipts of the Venezuelan
ports as security for its commission.
SEND-OFF FOR EMIGRANTS.
Englishmen Sail for America with the
Salvation Flag at the Masthead.
Liverpool, April 27. English emi
grants to the number of 1,046 sailed
for Canada this evening on board the
Dominion line steamer Vancouver,
with the Salvation Army flag at the
masthead. Tiie emigrants were gath
ered by Salvation Army officers and
many are workmen. All are paying
their own passage, and many are sup
plied with sufficient cash to make a
start in tho new world.
Prior to the sailing, the Lord Mayor
of Liverpool, Itider Haggard, who has
just arrived from America, Commander
Booth Tucker and Mrs. Bramwell
Booth addressed the emigrants from
the bridge. The lord mayor regretted
that England was sending her best
brawn, and muscle to work in a new
country, and at the same time opening
the doors for less desirable emigrants.
German Engineer is Named.
Washington, April 27. The German
government has designated Mr. Lincan
za as the German member of the ltoard
of consulting engineers for the Isth
mian canal. Mr. Liucanza im rani to
he connected witli the German minis
try of public works, and is one of the
leading civil engineers of Germany.
Tiie compensation of those consulting
engineers lias not yet been fixed, hut it
is Secretary Taft'u purpose to mako it
very liberal, in view of the high grade
of expert talont required. It is pro
posed to increase the membership.

Hong Kong, April 27. It is an
nounced here that the cable to Hainan
is cut and it is suspected thut it is the
work of oithor KoJestvensky'a fleet or

British residents of Hong Kong, who
openly declare that, if continued

WILL CUT THE HUNT SHORT
ProslUent Decidos to Return and At
tend to Urgent Business.
Glenwood Springs, Colo., April 28.
President Roosevelt will break camp
on Mny 8, a week earlier than ho in
tended, and will start for Washington
at once. The only stops he will make
are at Denver and Chicago, where dates
tor his reception have been advanced to
meet the new arrangement.
Secretary Loeb came from tho camp
early today, where ho conferred with
the president nil of yesterday. He an
nounced upon reaching here that affairs
in Washington made it necessary that
the president curtail his trip.
That there Is nothing alarming in the
situation is manifested from the fact
that the hunt will be continued ten
da) s more, in spite ot tho condition of
affairs which resulted In the altered
plans. The Vencutelan situation, it is
believed here, resulted in the order to
start home on May S.
Tho party will leave Glenwood
Springs at about 4 o'clock on May 8,
reaching Denver the same evening.
After the banquet there the party will
spend the night on the trnin, which
will leave Denver over the Union Paci
fic at about 7 a. m. on May D.
Tiiere is much speculation here as to
the president's reasons tor advancing
the time of his departure from Colo
rado. Mr. Loeb announces that there
is no pressing business that requires
the presdent's ntteutiion, but there are
a number of tilings coming up about
the middle of the month in which he is
greatly interested. What these are the
secretary would not say. It was said
also that there is nothing in tho Vene
zuelan or Dominican situations that
cannot be attended toby Secretary Taft.

London, April 23 The Daily Graph

articles calling in question the dura

to eause a great sensation. Tiie writer
alleges that 15 warships unlit tor ac

calibre 12-inch guns constituting the
main armament of three vessels are in
capable of firing full charges. The
latest Woolwich pattern 60-cnllbre six

as to the endurance of the armament
of the whole modern fleet. The article
states facts unfortunately beyond dis

Washington Sooner or later the Kla

Klamath Falls, must step aside and

unwilling to move unless it can name
its owh price, and sell out on its own

business that way. That is' why the
Klamath Canal company will) probably
lie forced to vacate.

first entered into negotiations witli this
