The answer of China to the state
ment of the ministers of the foreign
(towers as to the losses sustained by
nations and individuals in China has
been received. The answer commenced
with an appeal for mercy, saying that
the country is iiutovcrishcd. The
answer explains that the utmost China
can offer is 1,1.000,000 tacls annually
for the next thltty years, and gives the
souiees fiom which it Is expected the
money will come. China asserts that
this sum will impoverish it to nn extent
that will make it incumbent on the
government to increase foreign cus
toms one-third in older to raise reve
nue to run the government.
The news that China agrees to the
payment of the indemnities demanded
is received with general approval in
Merlin, in view of the disposition of
Germany to wind up the China cam
paign, but the proposal to extend the
payments nter a period of thirty years
meets with only a qualified assent.

There is some probability of Presi
