The Hague, May :;. The drafting
Committee, or sub-committee, of the
arbitration committee met yesterday
and di.v.. usse.l the Russian scheme,
adopting with slight modifications the
first six articles. Count Nigra, chief
of the Italian delegation, submitted a
proposal of mediation and arbitration,
consisting of six articles, in tl
of an a mendment to the ltussian proj
ect. The Americans also submitted an
amendment, demanding that, in the
event of a dispute between two na
tions, each should choose another na
tion to act together as arbitrators to
Kettle the difference wit hotit bloodshed.
This must not be confounded with the
proposal for a permanent arbitration
tribunal which the Americans will in
troduce during the week. The Italian
proposal includes a clause providing
that mediation and arbitration shall
not stop mobilization or preparation
for war. Neither tlie American nor
Italian amendment has yet been dis
cussed. Tlie naval and military sections of
the disarmament committee both met
yesterday and exchanged ideas in a
desultory manner. The impression
jfains ground that the outcome of this
commit tee will lie practically nil. A
brief oilicial record of the doings of
the peace conference during the last
week savs: Provisional proposals lor
mediation ami arbitration have been
submitted by the representatives of
Iiussia. tlrcat Pritain, Italy and tin
Pnited Slates. The correspondent
here of the Associated press learns
that the statement that the Americans
have .submitted an arbitration proposal
is incorrect. 1 heir proposals tor a per
manent tribunal are not ready, as
French translation is neeessarv. Thev
will probably be submitted on Wednes
day. The. llritish minister to tin

Tlie I lilted StatPH l'rarp Plan.
Washington, Mav lit). 1 he president
and Secretary Hay are gratilied at tin
precedence given by The Hague con
ference to the subject of arbitration.
wnieh is regarded as mainly American
in conception. The detailed scheme of
arbitrat ion which is to be proposed by
the Lulled States delegates was can
fully brought out at the state depart
ment before the commissioners sailed
from New York. The details of the
American project cannot be divulged
as a matter of courtesy to tin
conference, but it can be statei
that the American project is remarka
ble at once for its simplicity and com
prehensiveness. It di tiers considerably
from what is known as the Olney
Pauncefote proposition, as set out in
the arbitration treaty which failed of
ratification. It provides for a perma
nent tribunal of arbitration, an impar
tial arbitration being thought more
probable thereby than if arbitrators
were chosen in the heat of controversy.
The news from The Hague that the
British and Russian repre.sentat i ves
are conferring witli a view to reconcil
ing the points of difference in their t wo
schemes of arbitration gives satisfac
tion here, for tlie reason that it prom
ises well for an easy amalgamal ion of
opposing schemes with the American
project, the latter being very similar in
principle to the llritish plan. The re
ported decision of the conference to ad
mit as a subject for deliberation and
action the American proposition to ex
empt private property from seizure at
iseaisalso gratifying. The assurance
that Kngland. which has long held
aloof, will give her support to this
American proposition is believed al
most to i.iMire its adoption, and if this
should be the ease the state depart
ment would regard that one rCMi'.t as
more than repaying the nations con
cerned i..r the cost and trouble of as
sembling the conference.

Gov. A. M. Harvey, representing W. V.
lutwiier, agent for II. O. Kvan.s ,v Co.,
publishers, at Chicago, went to Law
rence to file a civil suit against Frank
'. Smith, member of the state text
ook commission, to recover -Uni.
Smith is superintendent of the Law
rence city schools. Mr. Tutwilcr claims
that he paid the money to Mr. Smith
to be used as "legitimate expenses"'
to secure the adoption of the Pcabodv
chart by the text-book board. He claims
that he had an understanding with
Smith that the money would be paid
jack in the event that the chart v:is
not adopted by the board. Mr. Smith
claims that it is a blackmailing scheme
to get money from him and that lie
cannot understand why Tutwilcr
should single him out as his victim.
Gov. Stanley said that he knew not li
ng about the matter. He said that it
might be a scheme of a disappointed
idder to smirch the character of ;i
man he could not use. "but if it i-i
hown that Mr. Smith, or any other
official under my administration, is
loodliug I shall not only discharge
them, but urge their prosecution. I
