note to the powers Interested In the
Chlne.-e situation sotting out tersely
and afresh tho object of the United
States government as to China and
pointing out how such objects as are
common to the powers can best be se
cured. The note marks tho initiation
of fresh negotiations on our part on
the arrangement of new bases to tide
over the impressible situation created
at the last meeting of the ministers In
Pekln. Some responses already are at
I hand, and it is stated that generally
our advances have been well received
and the state department expresses
satisfaction with the progress so far
achieved. It is believed that tho note
is an appeal from the extreme course
suggested by some of the powers as
to the treatment of China, especially
in the matter of punishments and In
demnities to which the ministers at
Pukin seem Inclined. The inlenl Is to
push the negotiations on a more ra

Washington, Nov. 23. Chairman
Hull, of the house committee on mili
tary affairs, today called u meeting of
the committee for next Tuesday. He
holies that a quorum wilt be present,
and that the committee can go to work
Immediately upon tho outlines of the
new army bill.
"It will bo in the direction ot econo
my to pass the army bill without de

now in the Philippines will have to be
brought home In the summer, that Is,
those who do not care to re-eullst.
Thu transports which go out for them
should depart laden with the troops
who are to replace them, else the ships
will make one voyage empty."
Mr. Hull was In conference today
with the president and with oflleials
of the war department upon ."he char-
! actor of legislation desired by the ad
ministration. He said the president
! will communicai,' to congress fully his
recommendations about the army and
be did not assume to' speak: the presi

. Largo Army Needed.
Ho thought, however, that the ad
ministration would not be content
with any makeshift legislation, no
preparation to continue the present
law for two years more. His impres
sion was that tho president wanted
authority to raise a regular amy suffi
cient for the needs of the country,
100,000 men, If necessary, thu number
to be reduced when there was no long
er need for them. Mr. Hull said the
Taft commission had reported that 15,
000 Filipinos could be enlisted linnn'
dlately in tho army and that they
would make good soldiers under Amer
ican ollleers. There was no fear of a
repetition of Great Britain's experi
ence with the Sepoys, for the Fili
pinos, Mr. Hull said, have no national
i feeling like the natives of India. More
over, added Mr. Hull, the business of
enlisting native troops has proven suc
cessful and there are no more loyal
or efficient soldiers than the natives
enlisted in the British army in India,

The Turkish method generally Is pro

That serves the same end, without giv

Dr. Norton, who was appointed con

States in this ease Is based on Article
2. oT the treaty of May 7. 1830, whl-h

Thu Turkish objection to the estab
