Washington, Nov. 2S. It developed
today that the chief point In the ex
changes concerning: China, which have
been going on during the last few days
among the powers relates to the wis
dom of delivering an "ultimatum" to
China, using the express word "ulti
matum" In the text of the demand to
be handed to tho Chinese envoys in
volving the possibility of a resulting
ilcclurutinn of war against China In
case tho demands of the "ultimatum"
be not complied with. It appears that
some of the powers dcired the ex
press use of the word "ultimatum" in
the demand relative to the decapita
tion or other extreme punishment of
eleven of the princes and other high
olllriuls responsible for the outrages,
and this view of using the most ex
pressive term of diplomacy septus to
have found favor with the ministers at
AVhen It became known at the sev
eral capitals, considerable dissent be- j
came manliest. Aoout a weoK ago,
Japan tool; the Initiative in appeal,
nnd this received the favorable con
sideration of the United Stales,
France. Russia and probably Croat
Britain, although a positive statement
as to Oreat Britain cannot bo made.
About the same time, Secretary Hay
look stops to exress the view of this
government that It was inadvisable to
jirocecd to the extent of an ultimatum
against ChinaT,' but that tho demands
should not be beyond what China rea
ronably might have the power to com
ply with.
The unanimity of sentiment among
the powers gives grounds for the be
lief that the demands of the ministers
will be modified by tip- abolishment
of the word '""ultimatum," although it
is not clear whut the final attitude of
tho remaining powers, Germany, Aus
tria and Italy, will be. The negotia
tions in this particular were carried
on in London, through Ambassador
Choate, and it is regarded as signifi
cant that one of the parties to the
Anglo-German alliance should give its
adherence to the moderate position ad
vanced by the United Stales.
The British ambassador and the
Chinese minister were among Secre
tary Hny's callers tit the state depart
ment today, conditions in China be
ing among the subjects considered. In
formation has been, received from the
southern viceroys, representing the
most pacific influences in China, show

tion is on its way against the Shan

Tenement House Commission Holds

Bev. Sr. Paadock, Whoso Work Has

the Frightful Conditions and Ex
plain What Can Be Done to Im

Prostitution Assumes Larger Pro
portions. By Exclusive Wire from Tho Associated Pirss.
New York, Nov. 2S. The tenement
house commission held an open meet
ing today, at which the question of
"Vice nnd Prostitution In tho Tene
ments" was discussed by the commis
sion appointed for the purpose of In
vestigating this feature of tenement
house life.
The Hew Dr. Robert L. Paddock, of
the Protestant Episcopal pro-cathedral,
said 'that the conditions as found by
him In tho course of his work In what
Is known geographically as the Eighth
assembly district, were very bad, ex
ceedingly bad. Ho said he had talked
with many policemen, postmen and
others, whose duties took them Into the
tenement houses, and their verdict had
Invariably been that there was a verv
large number of the tenement hous?s
in which apartments were rented to
women for Immoral purposes, with the
knowledge of the landlord, the agent,
or housekeeper and the other tenants
of the building. Ho had had hundreds
of complaints from parents as to the
moral effect of this condition of affairs
upon the young girls and boys of the
district, and stated that to bis certain
knowledge thero were many men and
wompn whose solo business was the
.procuring of young girls to enter these
tenement house apartments and lead a
life of Immorality.
Dr. Paddock gave it as his onlnion
that the dark and unllghted hallwavs
of the tenement were the chief reasons
for the prevalence of the vice in that
district. It was there, he said, that
small children first came into tempta
tion, and he suggested that the law re
quiring the halls to be lighted be rig
idly enforced.
Dr. Paddock stated further that ho
considered the gambling evil one of the
most closely associated with that of
prostitution. He also declared that he
considered that the moral standard of
the ent're East side had been lowered
by close and intimate association with
the women who live in flats and houses
in the so-called "red light district."

a great surprise to those traders who

It is understood that those standing

about a month ago, exhausted every
effort to secure enough No. 2 corn to

amounted to a trifle over one million
bushels and the new crop of corn was
