July 23.-Much interest was manifested by Mr. Minhul Cho. the Korean Minister here, and by the Japanese lega tion officials who are in Washington, in the announcement of the conclusion of an im portant agreement between Great Britain and Japan, pledging the Independence of Korea, and Involving reciprocal concessions on the part of the Korean Government. However, neither the Japanese nor Korean legations have been officially advised of the conclusion of the agreement. In connection with the new asreement. it is pointed out here that the United States have already a treaty of peace, amity, com merce and navigation with Korea, signed In 1SS2. and providing that "If other Powers deal unjustly or oppressively with cither Government, the other will exert their good offices, on being Informed of the case, to bring about an amicable arrangement." The new agreement is regarded in some quarters here as an aftermath to the of fensive and defensive alliance entered into between Great Britain and Japan for their Interests In the East nnd as a further safeguard against territorial asgrandize ment by any of the foreign Powers In the Orient.

COUNCIL WILL NOT CHANGE NAME OF SKiNKER ROAD. Skinker road will not loe the homely name by which It has Leen known since it was a lonely rural way. When the World's Fair la at the zenith of Its glory, and repre sentatives of all the nations of tho earth assemble In the main approach to the great Exposition, they will be gathered, not in Rochambeau avenue, but in Skinker road. Charles Gibson deferred to popular sentiment, and yesterday withdrew from the City Council the bill to rechristen the street Rochambeau avenue. Never before In the his tory of the city was such u unique compliment paid to the people. Occasionally bills have been withdrawn after their first rending, but there Is no record of a measure halng been withdrawn on its second reading. Neither is there any record of a bill for chanc ing the name of any street bavins been wiped from the proceeding" by Its sponsor In recognition of public opinion. The action of a majority of the Ctly Ccunell conclusively slgnlileH that the name cannot be chanced In the life of this Assembly. The street will be known .during the World's Rilr. wh-n hundr.-ds of thousands of people ride and walk upon It. by the hame i!d title that it bore In the olden days when It "van no tetter than a mere country by way and wagon-path over deserted hills and through thick fastnesses. "If the measure that I introduced lnvolvtd a principle." said Mr. Gibson in his ad dress. "I should not ask p'-rnilsdon of the Council to withdraw It. In seeking to have the title f Skinker road changed to Rochambnd avenue I was actuated by a desire t pay deserved tribute to a name, and thereby to a noble family, which Is not only distin guished In France, but which also is illustrious in American history. Peopl bearing the name of Rochambeau have been hrnnred bv the nation ami this city. !noc the bill was Introduced 1 have observed an asortIve public sentiment in favor of the old name. My opinion has not been modified, though my desire for tho change Was not based on any personal question. The people are in favor of the old name. They want the street to be called Skinker road the name by which It has always leen known. 1 defer to public sentiment and ask iwrmi -Man of the Council to uitodraw the bill."

He declnred that his answers to all questions put to him at that time had been the truth. He said that he read In a newspaper cf January 21 the storv jr the J73.W in tho Lincoln Trust Company vaults, but said he did not show It to Relss.as the latter testi fied and repeated that he had said nothing to Relsr. about the boys getting desrerate. "While lefote the Grand Jury you wre told about Relss's statements, were ycu not?" asked Johr.s-jn. "Yes, sir. Mr. Foil: told me and I asked that Mr. Relss be brought Into the room to face me. He did not come." Governor Johnson was particular to ak the witnes? If he was asked by Clrcu't Attorney Folk about a meeting with Relss In August or September. He askd the nUnes If Circuit Attorney Folk had ad vised him that he nerd not answer questions If the answer would ha-e a tendency to Incriminate him.

After Faulkner had told of the organiza tion of the House at the time he was first elected, denying that he was a member of any combire formed to control legislation for monetary consideration or otherwise, he was asked if he had any personal knowledge that Stock and MurrdI or Lehmann had agreed on a deal tcr the passage of the Suburban bill. His reply was that he had not. CIRCUIT ATTOllXr.V cross-examim:s dui'exdant. Circuit Attorney Folk here totk up tho cross-examination. Mr. Folk first asked the witness ir he had testified berore the Grand Jury, receiving a reply In the affirmative. "Did you have any conversation with Paul Relss relative to the Suburban bill at any timer asked Mr. Folk. "No. Mr. I did not." "You never said that Stock had one key to the strong box and Murrell the other?" "No. sir." "Vou said nothing about the boys being desperate and would do something If mat ters were not fixed upT" "I did noL" "So the dates August or September were not misleading to you?" "I have no recollection of any such con versation." I Circuit Attorney Folk then questioned the witness about the meeting In Captain Holt camp's office, and Faulkner declared that he knew of no roll call on a vote which was to bind those present to stand together on all legislation. He said he was out of tho room part of the time. He declared he did not know It If he was In the Murrell Ihmann combine. This ended the testi mony. Judge Douglas then read the Instructions to the Jury. With but few exceptions they were much like Instruction given In other criminal cases. The jury was Instructed that If they round Faulkner guilty they should assess his punishment in the Peni tentiary ut not less than two years, nor more than seven years. Assistant Circuit Attorney Andrew C. Moroney. alter the defense had filed excep tions to the court's Infractions on the ground that they are not all covered by the law applicable to the case, began the first address to the Jury.

He poI.e in i a low voire and could be hird by few per sons In the audience although the Jun rs nejr nhom he stood heard him plainly. He sruke of Ills rencns!Wllty as the defend ant's counsel. Then of the Jury's respon slb llty "Ou- young Circuit Attorney Is zralcus and ambitious. The court may be amliilous. But each or you Is the power, the Klrg. the Emperor In this case." he said. He referred to the ract that W. II.

I always aimed to extend a kindly hand and help P'r-ons along were I not positive of thlf guilt. I would willingly lend my prrs nc ir It would assist the Circuit Attorney li prosecuting and punching the guilty." Again referring to law briefly, the Gov ernor closed his dramatic effort !h a pi a for the Jury's compassion on th defendant. Circuit Attorney Folk. too. was not In good voice. He talked huskily at tlm's, but it did not detract from the power or his ar gument berore the twelve mn. who wer to dclde Faulkner's guilt or Innocence. As the representative or the State, he Te clared that he wanted no man placed un der the penalty or the law unless it ras shown that the man had done something Tor which he should b punished. "They speak to you or puWic clamor." he said. "In reply I wish to say that the pub lic has Its rights. We are here to do rur duty. I haxe no other motive In this cae than to rulfill my duty as I have sworn to do. You are here fur the same purpose. The gentleman who has Just prev ded m---a great lawyer, who has swayed Juries by his magic eloquence Is employed to use all his poner to free his client. He talks In you on sentimental lines. He asks you. rot lor Justice, but ror mercy. Did you ever hear or tho Innocent crying for mercy? I it not always the guilty that does, so? The innocent wants only Justice. If he gets that he cannot complain. I'OI.IC EXCORIATES coitnui-r puiiLic officials. Continuing. Mr. Folk declared that tho corrupt official strikes at the very founda tion of law. He branded him as being worse than the murderer, who often strikes In the light; worse than the anarchist, who recognizes no law. "When vou go to a dilapidated city whoso public buildings are In bad npalr and un finished; whose streets are full of holes and dirty and where the tax rate Is high. ;eu know that Its public servants have denied the trust placed In them. That a private snap Is being worked: that a combine ex ists. I believe this defendant toll Paul Relss what Relss said he did. This de fendant was a member of the Murrell com bine. He knew It was organized to get money. These circumstances are enough against him, but on top or all that, you have his own admission to Relss about the $73.(rt. the surety deposit box .the keys and the desperate straits in which members or the combine found themselves. He knw about the meeting which Murrell threatened to call ir Stock did not pay; that a meatier was to be appointed to take the mntter be rore the Grand Jury. The derendant does not deny this. He simply saje. 'I have no recollection. "Faulkner chose to dery the law. He chose to stand trial Tor perjury. He has no right to come here now nnd ask for mercy. Bribery and perjury go together.

DIPLOMACY MAY SETTLE DISPUTE J.ipnn Has Claimed Marcus Island for Twenty-Five Years and Has a Settlement. itErrnt.u" srrai.L Washington. July K. Diplomacy, net bloodshed, will rettle the ownership of that speck In the vast laclflc known as Marcus Island. If the I'nited Slates Department of State can have Its way. On that account official Washington I watching with Increasing Interest the race for the Island between the Japanese war ship and the adventurous Captain A. A. Rceehlll. In an American schooner. There Is much official hare surrounding Captain Roshllfs claim to the Island and Inasmuch as the American navigator and his title to possession mny prove very im portant factors In settling the nationality of the small strip of land. ofUclals here are inclined to sustain him. Japan's memorandum, now on file at the State Department, says that that country has claimed the Island for twenty-five years: that it Is within the Jurisdiction of Japan: that for a score or years it has been on all or the Japanese map-. So rar as known here the Information that any flag was cvx planted on the i.iinfl is contained In the report of Captain Rosehlll to the Department of State that In 1S he nailed the Stars and Stripes to a cocoanut tree and at the same time he left In a bottle Just under the flag a written claim to the land which stated that he had taken possession "' provided for by the statutes or the United States. Ml these questions will come up ror dis cussion In International negotiations, and it was said to-day that the question will un doubtedly be satisfactorily settled by arbi tration. . .. Whether or not tere Is any Justice in Captain Hosehlll's claim to ownership of the Island and a consequent right to oper ate the rlrh guano beds. It is altogether certain from the records or the hydro graphic oClce that he was not the discov erer. The first report of this small bit of land was "received from Captain Gelett of the ship Morning Star, who as rar back as is.i reported having passed Marcus Island. Ills report however, contains no statement of j k.,.,r TtihIpi! i having landed. Little Is known of Captain Itosehill In Washington exceot that he has been a navigator of the Pacific ror many years, sometimes In command of missionary ves sels and nt others conducting commercial enterprises. The records of the State Department show Jhat he filed his bond of ttO.OX. as re quired by law. less than three months ago. or thirteen years after his claim to uis coverv was announced. In the meantime the Japanese had gone to the island and established a village Their exclusive occupancy during all this time is not denlel by omiaU here, but whether or not this establishes J:iMr.e. Jurisdiction remains to be determined by arbitration. Arrratrd Murder Clmrjjr. nnPL'KLP.- SPKCSAL . St. Joseph. Mo.. July S. Chart's Renne ts under arrest here cnarged with the mur der of James l.

The cash market was strong with the Patten crowd, still buying most or tha "standard." and much or the other grades as could be turned to contract purposes. CHEATED SHERIFF OF ARREST.
