Washington. 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

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been withdrawn after their first rending, but there Is no record of a measure halng
been withdrawn on its second reading.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."
As announced In former Issues. The Republic will award a prlre of (Z9 In gold for the

mony before the Grand Jury. 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.

"Yes, sir. Mr. Foil: told me and I asked

Turning toward the Jury, Faulkner replied
In a deliberate voice: "All that I know about
that money Is what I read In the newspa
pers." 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
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.

Again referring to law briefly, the Gov

for the Jury's compassion on th defendant.
Circuit Attorney Folk. too. was not In

it did not detract from the power or his ar

As the representative or the State, he Te
clared that he wanted no man placed un

shown that the man had done something

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
The records of the State Department
show Jhat he filed his bond of ttO.OX. as re

or thirteen years after his claim to uis
coverv was announced. In the meantime
the Japanese had gone to the island and

Mayor Patten of Evanston Seems
to Have the Market Abso
lute! v Under Control.
itKruniJc srnci.vL.
Chicago. July K. Barring the war prices
of 1361. when oats were sold for Si cents,
the rriee of that grain to-day. under the.
spur of the quiet, but effective. Patten ma
nipulation, rose to the highest point In the
history of the Board or Trade 72 c'nts.
The advance was scored with very littl
trading, and scarcely any excitement In ha
pit. There was not a thins or Importance
new In the situation, but the predicament
or the shorts, togethfr with natural condi
tions, played Into the hands of the Kvans
ton Mayor, who seems to have the market
thoroughly In his power.
Patten, while one of the most successful
operators, has the reputation of belns one
of the fairest, and there is little likelihood,
the shorts believe, that he will press hla
advantage to the limit.
The selling to-day was chiefly by cah
people, and consisted of small lots made up
or purchases In the sample market. Tho
offering. were quickly picked up by tha
shorts. 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.
