two elements will come together, prob
ably on a proposition to have the 20

for one year from next 1 eccmber. and
covering the sugar crop. It is under
stood that Chairman Payne and llvt-
resentatlve lialzcll made the oyer
tu res toward an agreement. One of
the leading members of the opposition
said that Payne and Halzell had
made the suggestion to him, and had
asked for an answer. This was fol
lowed by a hasty canvass of opposi
tion members, which developed -on
fuderable difference of views. William
A Id en Smith said no compromise would
be accepted until after a meeting at
which it could be considered deliber
ately. Tawney said the limitation of
time was immaterial, and that no
compromise would be accepted which

Soon after the overtures of compro
mise were made the leaders of the

ence. Some thirty ineuilters were pres
ent and the discussion lasted about two
hours. The sentiment was rather un
favorable to accepting the plan of 20
Iht cent, reduction for the year from
next Heeemlier, and some of those
present favored rejecting the plan. Hut
it was urged against this course that
so long as overture for adjustment
had been made in good faith it wn
nly proper to meet the committee rep-
n-sentlng the ways and means, and
Payne anil his associates therefore
were advised that they would lie met
by a committee fsom the other side.

those of this year and next allowing

reduction to a single crop. This mat

that the lx'ct sugar conferrees will in-

crop that of next year and with that
limitation will be inclined m accept

and especially the Philippines and
Hawaii, is in continuation of the ef
forts initiated by Minister Wn here.
The milliliter, soon after he assnnn-d
office, began to tile protests with the
state department, and he has since
conducted so vigorous an agitation
against Chinese exclusion that al
though it was recognized tliat he' was
simply carrying out the directions of

the object of vigorous attack by the
newspapers here, some even demand

In this matter, and that the Chinese
foreign office accordingly has taken up
the work itself.
The action of the senate committee
on immigration yesterday has no com
fort in it for the Chinese. The com
mittee agreed to rejiort the Chinese
exclusion bill known as the Mitchell-
Kahn measure. It is substantially the
same as the modified bill submitted
by the Pacific coast committee, only
:i few verbal corrections have been
made. A oint which occasioned
much consideration by the committee
was whether or not Chinese should be
excluded from the Philippines or
whether the-whole proHsition should
le left to the Philippine commission.
The committee agreed to retain the
provision of absolute exclusion, taking
the ground that the I'nited States
wanted to retain the Philippines for
the Filipinos and tlflit the latter were
as much opposed to the admission of
Chinese as were the people of this
country. Another section of the bill
atiout which the committee debated ,at
length was that excluding Chinese

One of the March on Peking That

rerlin, March 13. Now that Ger
many has been so much iu evidence
in the Uniteu States in the person of
Prince Henry of Prussia, it is not in-
ippropriate to state that a picture
of a Chinese war scene, which the
kaiser has just ordered, fails to give
much prominence to the American
troops who were engaged in the trag
ic event depicted.
The picture is being limned by the
famous Prof. Koechling. While the
liritish and (.erman forces are shown
well to the front, the few Americans
drawn on the canvas are well-nigh
concealed. The pajnting, which will
be called "(iennans to the Front,"
portrays the remarkable episode of
dmiral Seymour's expedition to Pe-
kin in .lime, 1!(H. The attempt to re

front of fhe picture, in a long line
near the river, are shown the blue-
miformed liritish sailors, while the
ierman force is dashingjiast. But
few American or Japanese uniforms
are displayed. t In the center of the
canvas looms the tall figure of I apt.

It might be said, however, that this
pictorial minimizing of the American

of recent discovery. Undoubtedly it
would have passed unnoticed had not
