Nine of these letters were In the cafr tain's possession when the Toloa docked tonight. Captain Grant also received a note from Colonel Whittlesey, which ht declared he regarded aa confidential. "I can say, however, that from all ap pearances, the act was premeditated,' Captain Grant declared, "and that Colon el Whittlesey leaped overboard either Just before or Just after midnight Sat urday." Various wireless messages were left by Colorel Whittlesey for transmlasion but these wwre not forwarded and except In ca rf one of the messages, their na ture was not disclosed. This particular mesnaffe said that he would be missing. None of the letters which Colonel Whit tlesey left on his berth were on the writ ing paper of the steamship company, nor were any of them dated, which led to the belief that they were written before embarking on the Toloa. Alter experiencing heavy weather "nearly all the way from New York, the Toloa docked this evening nearly 10 hours Into and It was only after two hours of conferences with representatives of the American and British consulate and the acting flTHt secretary of the American legation.

New England, and personally superintends the plant ing and harvesting of her crop, which is always bought long before it is planted, so famous have her fine pota toes become. The same spirit of Indomitable per serverance and pluck must have been bequeathed to the son, for Board Ste vens Williams is now at the top of the profession as a producer: Like his forceful mother, he has gone on and up, until, today, he ranks as one of the big producers of the country. The love he has for Hollywood is indicated in all that he has to say about the mov ing picture business, in spite of the fact that he admits the strenuousness of production. "When I am producing .... ........ However, after 'a picture, we usually rst r four or five weeks before going at it again. "When I went to Hollywood in 1912 it was a city of 15,000 people; today Asked as to the salaries reputed to be paid movie stars, Mr. Williams said that these were not exaggerated. "Mary Pickford is said to have received over one million dollars for five pic tures in 1918, and I see no reaSon for doubting these figures, as under her .contract, she is paid $250,000 for each picture. However, Miss Pickford has to pay for the cost of her productions." Asked as to money made In the pro ducing end, Mr. Williams called atten tion to the- fact that most of the mov ing picture companies are financed by New York financiers. The author of "The Ghost Bride," which is the name of the next picture to be produced for Bryant Washburn, the manuscript of which Mr. Williams has with him, was paid $5,000, just for the story on which the scenario will be founded. Mr. Wil liams says It costs anywhere from J75.000 to $200,000 to produce a picture of any magnitude. Mr. Williams, in referring to his star, spoke of the clean-cut man he is and his delightful home life, producing a photograph of Mr. Washburn, taken with his lovely young wife and two small sons. Mrs. Washburn is not on the screen. Another very interesting picture was that of Leona Powers, the vouncest ieovuuig iauy in me unuea tsiaies, a. beautiful young woman,, with Titian hair, who has just closed a season in Boston, and is now playing at the Capitol theatre in Dallas. Miss Powers will be starred by the Board Williams company next year. Mr. - Williams produces his pictures at The Brunton, which studio is also used for producing the exterior scenes in the Douglas Fairbanks pictures, by5 the Jackie Cooglan producers, by Nazi mova, Bessie Barriscale, J. Warren Kerrigan, Betty- Compson, and many other of tho moving picture fraternity. The Brunton is the largest studio in the world. Recently, when used by Mary Pickford in staging the English hotel scehe in "Little Lord Fauntle roy," $32,000 was expended in produc ing that one scene alone. The stage of the Brunton. Is 3S1 feet long, and it is possible to produce four scenes on this stage at one time. Owng to the financial depression all over the country, the past year has been a bad one for the moving picture Industry, according to Mr. Williams, but since the first of October there has been a tremendous revival, fifty units having entered the field since that time. There are fifty-two motion picture studios at Hollywood, employing 42,000 people. Mr. Williams, who began his career on the stage, In 1903, just after his graduation, later becoming a vau deville producer, in New York City, formed a moving picture corporation in 1916, but owing to the war active work was not undertaken until 1918. Since that time his rise in the profession has been rapid, and productions of the Bryant Washburn pictures is guaran tee of the splendid success which has been his.

I SHARP ISSUES OF WORLD DIPLOMACY The Celebrated Shantung Controversy Takes Its Place at Armi Conference. "WASHINGTON. Nov. 80. Bringing with it some of the sharpest issues of world diplomacy, the celebrated Shan- : tung controversy took its place today at the arms conference. The result was an offer by the United States and Great Britain, accepted promptly by Japan and China to as- ; same the role of friendly advisers in.. vi and end the long and bitter debate that has swept over three continents.

He declared the garrisons in north China were re maining under specific Instructions of the Boxer protocol, and thot those along the Chinese Eastern railway were acting under the inter-alied agreement of 1919. The willingness of Japan to withdraw her troops from Shantung, he asserted, was dependent on the estab- lishment of an acceptable Chinese po- uce lorce. As a result of the discussion, the conference postponed its decision until fits next meeting on Friday. Among the American delegates the belief tonight was that some general declaration of principle might be adopted finally, set ting forth the opinion of the powers i that all foreign troops on Chinese soil without treaty sanction would be with drawn 'as soon as conditions warrant.

Upon its solution in any estimate of naval strencth was interchanges between the American and Japanese delegates themselves was in progress and might last several days. There was a strong feeling in Amer- lean and British circles that Japanese ultimately would accept the American method of calculation and the "5-5-3" ratio, not insisting upon a "10-10-7" ratio instead. This was based on the definite conclusion of the British and American experts that the Japanese naval officers Had been unable to show any sound claim to a 70 per cent status on the basis of figures they have been able to present. There was expecta tions, however, that to any offer by the Japanese group to accept the "5-5-3" ratio would be coupled a con dition as to an agreement on naval bases in the Pacific. That question has not been injected into the confer ence as yet in any form.

If existing auxiliary craft were inemded in the computation on any basis, from- total naval tonnage to inclusion of any se lected particular type of ships In ad dition to capital ships, she would have far less than a 50 per cent ratio. Tlie United States has an overwhelming preponderance in all auxiliary craft, yet sought no advantage in the agree ment from that fact, it was said. On the highest ratio Japan could be allowed by the figures presented that include ships under construction, her ratio was 59 per cent, and to reach that she' would be permitted to incluue two old pre-dreadnaughts more than twenty ytars old, while the United States would discard all ships over twenty years old. Various tabulations were gone over by the experts, and in every case Japan's ratio fell below sixty per cent. To meet this condition the Japanese put forward their sug gestion that only ships afloat be count- 'ed in estimating naval strength ince in that way alone their estimate cf 70 per cent could be attained.
