Nine of these letters were In the cafr
tain's possession when the Toloa docked
tonight. Captain Grant also received a
note from Colonel Whittlesey, which ht
declared he regarded aa confidential.
"I can say, however, that from all ap
pearances, the act was premeditated,'
Captain Grant declared, "and that Colon
el Whittlesey leaped overboard either
Just before or Just after midnight Sat
urday." Various wireless messages were left by
Colorel Whittlesey for transmlasion but
these wwre not forwarded and except In
ca rf one of the messages, their na
ture was not disclosed. This particular
mesnaffe said that he would be missing.
None of the letters which Colonel Whit
tlesey left on his berth were on the writ
ing paper of the steamship company, nor
were any of them dated, which led to
the belief that they were written before
embarking on the Toloa.

COUNTRY AND CITY.
By William H. Hayne.
All those who live with birds and trees,
With happy herds and stately trees.
Par from unhallowed thrlst for gain,
Sheltered by fields of waving grain,
Must seem benignly pure and sweet
To those who walk with hurrying feet
Amid the city's endless rush.
Far from the country's pastoral hush.
And yet the loveliest glade and glen.
Remote from Jostling lives of men,
May grow, at last, like some Dead Sea,
Lacking the current swift and free
Whose burden beats on soul and heart
With tidal epics of the mart.
Potent with scones of grief and glee
"The sad, sweet music of humanity."

be paid movie stars, Mr. Williams said
that these were not exaggerated.
"Mary Pickford is said to have received
over one million dollars for five pic
tures in 1918, and I see no reaSon for
doubting these figures, as under her
.contract, she is paid $250,000 for each

Asked as to money made In the pro

New York financiers. The author of
"The Ghost Bride," which is the name
of the next picture to be produced for
Bryant Washburn, the manuscript of
which Mr. Williams has with him, was

There was a strong feeling in Amer-
lean and British circles that Japanese
ultimately would accept the American
method of calculation and the "5-5-3"
ratio, not insisting upon a "10-10-7"
ratio instead. This was based on the
definite conclusion of the British and
American experts that the Japanese
naval officers Had been unable to show
any sound claim to a 70 per cent status
on the basis of figures they have been
able to present. There was expecta
tions, however, that to any offer by
the Japanese group to accept the
"5-5-3" ratio would be coupled a con
dition as to an agreement on naval
bases in the Pacific. That question
has not been injected into the confer

capital ship tonnage measurement to
fix the ratio itself is a wide conces
sion to Jaxan, it is sa'. If existing
auxiliary craft were inemded in the
computation on any basis, from- total
naval tonnage to inclusion of any se
lected particular type of ships In ad
dition to capital ships, she would have
far less than a 50 per cent ratio. Tlie
United States has an overwhelming
preponderance in all auxiliary craft,
yet sought no advantage in the agree
ment from that fact, it was said.
On the highest ratio Japan could be
allowed by the figures presented that
include ships under construction, her
ratio was 59 per cent, and to reach
that she' would be permitted to incluue
two old pre-dreadnaughts more than
twenty ytars old, while the United
States would discard all ships over
twenty years old. Various tabulations
were gone over by the experts, and in
every case Japan's ratio fell below
sixty per cent. To meet this condition
the Japanese put forward their sug
gestion that only ships afloat be count-
'ed in estimating naval strength ince
in that way alone their estimate cf 70
per cent could be attained. Both the
