The policy of the United States presents
an obstacle In the way of delivering a

meat more than a month ago wa advised
unofficially o what would happen.
The first Installment of the Indemnity,
which wa due July 1 laat, wa likewise
paid on a silver basis, the nations receiving
the money reserving the right to reclaim
the difference between the silver and gold
hail. Therefore tomorrow the department
will have placed to It credit $486,093, tor it
ha decided without hesitation to accept
the payment on the basis proposed.'
Borne Idea of the extra charge that would
be Imposed on China did It yield to the
almost general demand of the powers for
the payment of these demands on a gold
baala may be gathered from the fact that
whereas the Chines tael, which was the
bast of the calculation of the Indebted
ness, was worth 74 cents at the time the
agreement wa signed la Peklo, It 1 aow
worth only CI cent. -
The Impression prevail here among per
son who have taken part In these settle
ment that the indemnities demanded by the
power are far beyond China' ability. It
may for a year er two borrow enough
money from various International source
to pay the Installment a falling due every
Is month, but In a short tlm the power
will have to eotn to a readjustment of
the whole Indtbtednes. either by submit
ting the case to arbitration at The Hague,
which China ardently desires, or by a mu
tual agreement between the creditor na
tions. There's no place like home, and no home
