ENCOURAGED OVER NAVAL DISCUSSION American Delegates Hopeful for Adop tion of Hughes’ Proposal—Japs Seek Concessions. Washington, Nov. 22.—The confer ence committee of the five principal powers on limitation cf armaments will meet tomorrow to resume consid eration of the Hughes proposal for a 10-year naval holiday and fix a reduction of the United States, Great Britain and Japan. Despite criticisms of the American plan and frequent disquieting reports tending to stir up pessimism concern ing it, the American delegates tonight were encouraged over progress in in formal negotiation between the in terested powers since the conference accepted the proposal in principle and as a basis for discussion. Assurance were given that Great Britain will join with the United States to maintain the underlying principle of the limitation plan, the ratio of capital ships, with Japan urging with all the integrity that her diplomatic representatives can command that her ratio be increased from 60 per cent to 70 or 75. Seeks to Save Breadnanirlit. Japan’s insistence, brought down to final analysis by naval experts, is said to be actuated wholly by a desire :o save the dreadnaught Mutsu which she insists lias been mistakenly in cluded in the list of new ships to be scrapped. The Japanese declare she ; was launched before November 11. [f that is all Japan wants when the cards are all on the table, she may j set it hut if she does, the ratio would le balanced again by permitting the j United States to retain the Colorado j ind Great Britain to lay down a •hip of the Hood type. Great Brit- j lin does not want to do this and the 1'nited States dees not want to re tain the Colorado. To grant this ] 'oncession, British and American eaders agree, would violate the un lerlying principle of putting an end o competitive naval building. If it can he proved, however, that there las been a serious mistake in the calculations relating to the status of j lie Mutsu. an arrangement might he worked on t to save the Mutsu for lapan and scrapping some of tier ether existing tonnage without dis • ( orbing the J-5-3 scale.

HUNT FOR COUGAR PROVES SUCCESSFUL Slaying of Beast Winds Up Career of Livestock Slaughter in Washington. Montesano, Wash.—A six-year-hunt for a cougar ended here when the ani mal was treed and killed. The slay ing of this mountain cat ended a beast with a notorious reputation for de stroying hogs, sheep, calves and, in one or two instances, cattle. ' Ranchers along North river have long attempted to end the career of this killer, who two or three times each week would invade a farming center and maim and destroy live stock for the sake of slaughter. A number of years ago, in the dead of winter, a cougar killed thirty sheep and three calves on one farm in a single night, eating but little of one sheep. From tracks left in the soft snow it was seen that each foot of the animal possessed but three instead of four toes. Every winter since this same cougar with the three-toed feet hgs been ac counted for in some locality up or —sw-jr* /// i i i Ml iJ//» — ' 'Vfjdin.k Cornered and Killed. down the North river, Easily tracked because of its deformity, many hunt ers and trappers vainly sought to lo cate its lair.
