Tho L'nit States ovorninrnt re jects the Lleirnan bu-;esti(jn that the le-iility of the capture and destruction of the ship and the question of tht! p im.nt and amount of indemnity be submitted to a piizo court. It proposes that the matter be set tled by diplomatic negotiations, point ing out that the question of liability on the part of (lennany already had been admitted and that the status of the claimants and the amount of tho indemnity arc the. only questions re maining to be settled.

I'ruu Kit'd Friederieh on Jan. 'js last I have the honor to sav by declaration j of my government. that while tho promptness with whieh the imperial lerman government has admitted its liability is highly appreciated, my gov ernment feels that it would be inap propriate in the circumstances of this misc. and would Involve unnecessary delay, to adopt the suggestion in your J note that the legality of the capture j and destruction, the standing of the elaimants and the amount of indem nity should be submitted to a prize court. TnquesUonahly tin- destruction of this vessel was a violation of the ob ligations impose.! upon tho imperial German government under existing Ireatv stipulations between the Tnited Mates and Prussia and the I rated States government, by virtue of its treaty rights, has presented to the im perial (icrm.ui government a claim lor indemnity on account of the re Milting damages suffered by American i itizens. Th" liability of tho imperial German govt rnment. and the standing of the claimants as American citizens, ;.nd the amount of indemnity are all questions which lend themselves to diplomatic negotiations between the two governments. and happily the question of liability has already been settled in that way. The status of the claimants and the amount of the in demnity are the only questions re anainimr to be settled, and it is ap propriate that they should be dealt with in the same way. Cargo Value Not at liu "The government of the I'nited States fully understands that as stated in your excellency's note, the German pocrnment is liable under the treaty provisions above mention ed for the damages arising from the destruction of the earuo as well as from the destruction the vessel. Hut it will be observed that tlie claim un der discussion does not include dam iiges for the destruction of th eari;o. .m. th. oiiestnm or lie aiue oi in the! a argo therefore is not included in present discussion. "The government of the Fnited States recognizes that the German government will wish to be satisiied sis to the American ownership of the vessel and the amount of damages Mistained in consequence of her dc- f-truction. "These matters ale readily ascer tainable and if the government de uros any further evidence in sub Mantiation ol the claim on these points in addition to that furnished i I'V tlie shins papers w nun are which are already, in the p ession of the German gov ernment any additional evidence fo :nd necessary will be produced. "In this c;i;o, however, inasmuch as any evidence which the German gov ernment may wish to have produced i mote accessible and can more con veniently bo examined in the United Stales than elsewhere, on account of tlie presence there of the owners and captain of the William 1. I"rye. ami their documentary records and other papers. yo'ir evidence therefore shows much worthiness." .Mi:UK'. r.NSIGN I'MAV at hi:ad or .i ldlight. WASHINGTON.

Hi'forts arc )cinp made both by tho board of public works and a Mibsidiary corporation of the Indiana and Michi gan Kleetrie Co., known ai ti St. Joseph Heating Co., to arce uju n tile terms of a contract presented by the latter to the hoard for furnishing heat by steam to the Oliver hotel from sur plus steam in the boilers of the In diana and Michigan Electric Co. 'a plant. According to Pres't K. M. Mor ris of the board and to City Atty. Seebirt, the c ontract as it stands will probably not be accepted by the city. According to tlie board and to Mr. Seebirt the newest contract is alto gether too favorable to the steam com pany. It was filed in the works board oflico Tuesday evening and was up for consideration at Tuesday night's and Wednesday morning's meetings of the board. Tlie mem iters failed to reach any definite plan or agreement in the matter ami it wax turned over to City Atty. Seebirt for suggested altera tions. Among other things objected to in tho contract by tlie board is the fact that it fails to state that he ciy's approval must be gained before any extension of the line is 'made after it is laid. Another portion which, if the suggestions of Mr. Seebirt are follow- ed, will hi agreement, that notice before tjie left entirely out of the is that whieh sets forth must be .yiven six month contract's termination of any proposed sale of rights, property anil other detail connected with th construction of the lines. The contract is similar in contents to a tormer proposed agreement made by the steam supplying company. However, the board failed to reach any agreement on that contract, and the one at present under eorit-idera-tion seems also to fail to meet the re quirements set by th beard. City Atty. Seebirt has suggested several chances in the instrument and has also declared' to the board that it would l.'f inadvisable to enter into the agree ment until several portions were left entirely out of consideration ADMITS MURDER, IS FREE Sheriff HrfuM. to Arrest Woman Without a Warrant.
