Washington, May 2.—It is believed here that the hitch which is said to have arisen at Pekin over the proposi tion to increase the Chinese customs duty to meet the indemnities demanded yb the foreign powers is caused by the broaching by Mr. Rockhill of his plan for the abolition of the likin duties as a condition for his acquiescence in the customs increase. The United States government has in teh past admitted a readiness to permit the Chinese to increase the customs rates providing there was no discrimina tion between th powers.

A VERY OLD ENGLISH FAMILY Vast Wealth to Be Divided Between Relatives of Man Who Made Mill ions in Australia—Famous as Makers of Fine China—A Number of Them in Montana. A story conies from Denver to the effect that the Havilands of that city are probably numbered among the heirs to $25,000,000 left by Imbray Clarke in Australia, to whom all of the old family of Havilands are related by the mar riage of Dorothy Haviland to Mr. Clarke. The Denver Havilands are now endeavoring to figure out whether their relationship with Mr. Clarke is near enough to entitle them to some of the vast wealth left by that gentleman. If they succeed in doing it, Denver will not be the only place In the United States favored, for Dr. Willis Henry Haviland of this city will then be just as closely related to Mr. Clarke as will be the Denver Haviands. They all spring from the same family and their antecedents can be traced back 1000 years. The family tree, however, Is In the possession of Frederick Haviland of New York, the well known importer of Haviland china, of whom Dr. Havi land of Butte is a second cousin. They exchange letters. Dr. Haviland was seen at his office last evening and shown a clipping from a Denver paper in regard to the estate. After reading it the doctor smiled and said that while he was a member of the Haviland family he though the relation ship existing between them and Mr. Clarke was most too remote to entitle the family to the estate. 'My parents," said he, 'came from the New York family of Havilands and we are all related, but I do not know just what our relationship is. Frederick Haviland, the New York importer of Chinaware, and I ara second cousins. We correspond with each other." The doctor then produced a letter he had received from the importer and read itt. Then continuing his remarks he said: "Frederick Haviland has the family tree and will know whether the Denver Havt lands and myself are entitled to share in the vast estate. There are also a lot of Havilands in Michigan, all descendants of the family, and two others' in Mon tana." The story upon which the Denver Havilands base their claim to ■Çie Clarke millions Is that the wife of fin bray Clarke was Dorothy Haviland, daughter of Kate Haviland, who was at one time well known through the south and came from the New York family. About eighteen months after the mar riage of Imbray Clarke and Dorothy Haviland a daughter was born to the young wife in San Jose, Cal. Dorothy Haviland died and the father, who was passionately in love with the mother, lin gered on the verge of insanity for weeks. Finally he rallied, but refused to see the child, whom, he insisted, was the cause of the mother's death. He ordered that she be placed in a private home, and sailed two weeks later for Australia. Now the great Haviland family, whose head is in New York is scattered. and among them the Denver and Butte Havi lands have a good claim on part of the immense imbray Clarke estate of more than $25,GQO,QOO.
