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

of tho government Foster said lie had

twenty-live ye-rs in foreign lands, and.
While Ills nvddcnco abroad has been gen

Councilmen Brown and Kidwoll, who
were standing near: "We mean busi

the rights of the people in the manner
customary with the council for some time
The councilmen made a sharp retort.
Whereupon Gilruth continued: "It is
plain to us that tho council has been en
gaged in crooked business, and I will
tell you very plainly that the people' are
getting exasperated. It this thing con-
'continues, sir, we will visit you with
opes." After a few mure hot words
Gilruth hurried away.
