He has en gaged the suite formerly occupied by Enrico Caruso. National committeemen and dele gates already in town are displaying a decided sentiment in favor of Sena tor Thomas J. Walsh of Montana, leader in the oil lease investigation, i as permanent chairman of the con vention. It is generally agreed that inasmuch as the oil scandals are vir tually certain to be one of the chief issues of the campaign, it would be a wise move to capitalize the Mon tana senator's nationally known con nection with the investigations.

June 18.— Richard O. Marsh, organizer and leader of the Marsh-Danen expedi tion. which for four months has been exploring the jungles of southeast ern Panama, has arrived in Colon with what he believes to be complete proof of the success of hisr search for "white Indians.' The explorer brought with him three primitive white Indians and three other Indians. A slower boat is bringing three more Indians from the San Bias coast, whence the party started for Colon. Appear to Be Nordic*. Mr. Marsh said that the three whites he has with him appear to be primitive Nordics. They are a boy of eighteen, a girl of sixteen and a boy of ten Physically they are splendid creatures. They have fine flaxen hair, blue-green eyes and white skins. The males are covered with a brownlike hair. Two of the other Indians are de sciibed by Mr. Marsh as of the "paleolithic or Cro-Magnon” type— very robust. Four "modern" or “neolythic Mongolian” type Indians, among them ima I’aguina. the "chief of chiefs" or "king" of the •’San Bas Indians”; a subchief and the chiefs- wife and son are accom panying Marsh to the States.

All of the Marsh party’s Indians will be taken to the United States tovbe examined by scientists, his own scientists, he said, being “either dead or in the hospital." Rated Greatest Discovery. He said that he could bring hun dreds of Indians with him if neces sary and expects to show scientists that 40,000 Indians in Darien demon strate the evolution of the so-called Nordic white type paleolithic man. He considers this the greatest eth nological discovery in history. The hitherto implacable Darien In dians are ready for civilization, Mr. Marsh said. "The Darien Indians are now my friends. The head chiefs have agreed to accept modern civ ilization and schools under reason able guarantees of liberty and free dom to live their lives without bur densome restraints or impositions.” King’ s Palace Looted.

S.-JAPAN COMITY Envoy Says His Nation Believes All Questions Can Be Ad justed Amicably. RELATIONS ARE CHERISHED Speaks at Brown D. on Receiving Honorary LL. D. By the Associated Press. PROVIDENCE, R. 1.. June IS Japan, in its dealings with the United Sjatee has always believed that, as between friends, there is no question that cannot be adjusted amicably. Ambassador Hanihara of Japan de clared today in an address at Brown University, where he received the honorary degree of doctor of laws With “such unique and precious history" back of American-Japanese friendship, he said, “the one great question in the minds of my people now is; Is it the true sentiment of the American people to make light of its friendship with the people of Japan, a friendship which has been built up by hard conscientious labor of the two peoples extending over nearly three-quarters of a century, not only to the good of themselves alone, but for the good of the rest of mankind?" Relations Are Outlined. The Japanese ambassador sketched the history of the relations of the two nations from the time of Com modore Perry set foot on the shores of Japan to the signing of the Wash ington conference treaties. He refrained from any specific men tion of the immigration law. with its Japanese exclusion provision. If I fail to express myself ade quately," he said, “it is not because on any lack of appreciation of vour rood will, but solely on account of ! „nH., U ? fo rl nna - te ’Citations 1 am under m the use of the English la™ and f the ‘prople"of whicnfs w b :fr as r^ Kad^h-i °wo th c e ountrfes fri " ndShii; Reap e*lts Hope tnr r^ tnTr “And I may express the hope" he sa.d, “that that friendship may SUr tite. Aye' It will survive, if we remain true to our worthv tradi tions of the past, which is an em bodiment of that great human spirit of natural toleration and esteem.” After relating Japan's efforts to be come a bulwark of peace in the Far East, he said: “We Japanese have tried to be come a great nation, not onlv i n the »I* a ‘ n a ment of , Btren *Uh sufficient to defend ourselves and protect our weaker neighbors from dangerous aggressions, but also we have striven to be great because we are anxious, to serve the cause of humanity We have been sincerely proud to' serve with the great nations of the west and we shall continue to serve as long as those nations will permit us to do so.” Tribute to Envoys. He paid high tribute to the many envoys who have represented the United States in Japan, and to hun dreds of other Americans who have played prominent parts in the story of modem Japan. Japan, he said, had been confronted with many difficult problems, but “throughout these pre carious years of our national life it was America more than any other country that helped us. always with wise counsel and friendly assistance." “We of Japan,” he said, “all felt and still feel that we owe America a lasting debt of gratitude, which so far we have not failed and will never fail to repay as opportunities open themselves to us." He spoke of the great trade Japan had furnished the western nations. “Japan,” he said, “is a factor for security and commerce and progress which I sometimes fear is hardly ap preciated by the people of other countries. Sensational talk of rival navies and rival markets and trade j routes Is prevalent always in dis- ] cussing and comparing the great I powers: the benefits of these powers j to each other and to the smaller ■ nations is a less interesting subject. 1 Disturbed by RoMinn War. “We are, and have been for years, your greatest customer on the Pacific, overwhelmingly so, and the United States is the greatest market for our products. We saw nothing that could mar these happy and mutually ■ beneficial relations until after the Russian war, when certain evil forces began to work against the best interest of our two countries. Fortunately, however, wise people on both sides of the Pacific were not slow in realizing the effect of this sinister influence and spared no effort for its removal. "The task was not easy, but we kept patience. At last, at the Washington conference of a little over two years ago, in which one of Brown's worthy sons. Charles Evans Hughes, played the leading role so successfully, this unhappy symptom of international discord was entirely removed, and the relations between America and Japan were restored to their old level of happy and glorious friendship. “Such has been, in brief, the his tory of our relations, which were made immeasurably closer by the generous act of sympathy on the part of the American people at the time of our great calamity of last September.’ Yesterday’s Circulation, 95,836 CHINA REJECTS U.
