Washington, I). C. Diplomats In
Washington nro greatly interested In
certain developments in tho relations
between China nnd Japan, -which
havo .not yet readied the stage of
attracting general public Interest.
This concern has been accentuated
by the publication of two or .three
brief dispatches from the Orient set
ting forth that China Is pressing To
klo for a, settlement of some matters
in Manchuria, which rotate to tho
evacuation of that provinco by the
Mikado's forces, under the Torts-
mouth treaty. The most recent of
theso dispatches stated that China.
had demanded arbitration nt The

of Interest It Is taking or liable to
take In tho, settlement of the acuto
difference .between China and Japan
over Manchuria. Hut tho diplomats
who mako a, specialty of Oriental af
fairs say that thcro Is a reason to
suspoct that Japan Is wrong, nnd
that tho United Stntcs has given
some measure of. moral support, at
loast, to China in prosslng for nn
early settlement In Manchuria.
Long before bo was President or
nominee for President, Mr. Taft was
accounted by Mr. Hoobevolt tho best
Orientalist Itutho Administration,
and his advice- went far to dotormlno
tho Administration's courso In sever
al Important matters. On his last
trip to tho .!'2ast, whon ho went
nround the .world, Mr, Taft mado a
remarkable speech In Shanghai, In
.which ho assured tho Chlncso that
tho United Stntcs was their friend
and would not permit dismember

It is now.chargod that China Is bo

party. An accommodation noto
having been made nnd endorsed for
tho purposo of paying the debt of u
third party not named on tho Instru
ment, such third party Is in contem
plation ot law tho accommodated
party to whom tho credit has been
loaned, and tho testimony of tho ac
commodation maker, knowing tho
use Intended, that ho signed nt tho
request nnd for tho nccommodntlon
of tho payco cannot alter tho status
of tho parties.

Judge of n circuit court, Jury waived,
being based upon the existence of an
