Director of the Impel iol Maritime
Customs Suggests Levying of an
Annual House Tax of One-Half n
Month's Rent Some of the Powers
Are Averse to Contiact a Loan for
the Payment of the Indemnity.
By rxclmhe Wile liom Tlie A.-oi i.iled 1'iev.
l'ekln, April .!. The ministers nie
consideilng proposals submitted hy
llnnnclul experts for raising a sum suf
ficient to pay the Chinese Indemnity.
It Is ptobable that some arrangement
will be arrived tit on the basis of tho
plan of Sir Hubert Hart, dlieetor of
the imperial maritime customs, which
provides for tlie handing of the salt
and llkln taxes over tlie maritime cus
toms administration and the levying
of an annual house tax etpial to one
half a month's rent, which, Il Is cal
culated, will provide 20,nn0,d00 taeli
ycaily. suflleient to pay ."i per cent.
Interest ou :,n,000,OO0 taels and clear
off the whole of the principal in less
tliHn forty years. Two hundred and
llfty millions taels Is equivalent, rough
ly estimated to yti.OOO.uOO pounds, but
the total amount of tlie Indemnity is
liktly to be much more than that.
Some of the powers ate nere lo
compelling China to contiact a loan
lor tlie payment ol the it denmlty. It
Is believed that the inere.ised cost of
raising tlie money re-ntiied in that
way is likely to liump-i- the coiumer development of China, anil it Is
thuefore belli ved to be desirable to
have the money raised inlei nally In

asked that when the hearliiK closed foe

and then added:
"It Is necessary that Jones' testimony
as to this murder should be corrobor

plice, bis testimony alone Is not enough
upon which to 'hold Patrick."
Attorney Moore tersely added to this:
"We understand that, and we supposo

court proceedings with the utmost non
chalance. At one point it became nec
essary that a statemenL made by Jones
be road, and It -xvas given Into the
hands of one of the counsel for the de
fense for that purpose. This was the
statement in which the valet claimed
Patrick killed Itlce, and -which he hint
since denied. Tho reader hesitated and
stumbled over the written "words. Sud
denly Patiick spoke up, exclaiming:
"Here, I guess 1 can malse it out; Til

This xvas agreed to, and In a loud,

He showed that Jones had lied to anil "

told untruths to Assistant Plstriet At-
