Ah Sin Carrying Oat the Treaty with Hernpnlous Uaoil Faitb. aad Bm Pleatr of Beaoarcrs CommeoU oa tba Aatloa of tha European Powers British la tba Orient Bitterly Criticise Tbalr Govern ment for Ita Nou-Intcrreraaee. Washington. July ft Ex-Secretary of Blato John V. Foster has arrived in Wash ington from China, where he has taken conspicuous part In the diplomatic branch of the China-Japan conflict. He Is fatigued with hi long journey, but is thcrwlso in vigorous health, notwith standing tha hardships inciilunt to tho close of tho eastern war. Mr. Foster would not consent to an interview until be rested and examined his baggage. Ho brings a fund of information on tho status of tho Japanese-tiineso struggle and the Inturosting details of the peace negotia tions in which ho took a personal part. Believe the Peace I Permanent. Later, in answer to Inquiries, Foster made a statement in which bo said there was good reason to expect pormanont peace between Japan and China as the result of tiie tronty of ishimonoseki. The terms demanded by Japan might under tho circumstances be regarded as reason ulI especially in view of tho retrocession of Llo Tung peninsula. Tho treaty has been observed and carried out by China with scrupulous good faith. Hor conduct In this respect hag created a very favor able impression In Japan. The loan just concluded through Hussion influence will r.nablo China to pay the first two install ments of tho Indemnity. These two in stallments cover half of the Indemnity, and the balance, extending over six years, will bo a comparatively easy burden for tho Chinese government, if any skill Is shown in tho management of the Im perial revenues. China lias Plenty of Resources. Tho country has plenty of resource nnd has never yet fuiled in Its financial engagements. Hence the peace concluded at Sliimonoiekl U not likely to be broken on account of tho shortcomings of China. If a rupture occurs it Is more likely to be brought about by the Intermeddling of the European powers. Tho Intervention of ltussin on account of tho terms of peaco was not unexpected, aud is not un natural In view of her predominating in terest In tho Orient, especially on tho North Pacific coast of Asia. That Franco followed tho lend of Russia croitod no surprise in tho Ktst, but that Germany Bhould unite with thurn in a display of forco against J.tpan wns entirely unex pected, nnd Is not yet understood. Code barn's Work Was the Bent. British residents of China and Japan ore very bitter in criticising their gov ernment for its alutentlon In tho matter. They alloo that its fulluro to Join with thu other powers in rearranging the terms has lost for their country prestige and has loft Russia a freo hand lit Its Inlluonco nnd control at IVklng. Of all the coun tries diplomatically concerned in thucon test tho United Slates has como out of it with better graco than any other. From tho first hnr interest has been recognized by both belligerents as purely disinter oiteJ, h.T only I'.emro being to render such service ns would brlnir about a last ing and honor.tblo poaca. Tho conduct of the stnto department In its very delicate relations wall both combatants has been marked by good judgment and by few mistakes. Want to stay at Home Mow. lleing asked why he decline I the Invit ation to remain in China ns tho adviser of tho government Foster said lie had spent the greater portion of the past twenty-live ye-rs in foreign lands, and. While Ills nvddcnco abroad has been gen erally a pic tsant one, he had found no country citi it 10 bis native land nnd ho desired to spi-nd the rcmninder of his lifo in his native rouutry. Ho confessed that If tho invitation had come firo or ten years earlier he would probably not have declined It. TALK OF ROPE FOR CITY DADS. Labor Leader Intimate Thai Jndge Lynch VI til Do some Work.
