M.PICH0N MAKES REPORT
Distilbutlon Anions Poweis Not
Mentioned Belief That It Will Be
Settled by Ministers in Pekln and
Not Refened to The Hague Great

By rxilthlti Wirr fiom Thr A-Wvic-Ulcl I'km
Pails. May 1. The forclRii nillce has
lecelved a dispatch ftom Pekln an
nouncing that M. Plchon, the Fiench
minister, ptesented today the repoil of
the committee on indemnity. The
amount China is to pay has been lled
at l,.'!B"i,000.00 fi lines. How it in pio
posed that the indemnity be dlsUilbuted
among the now el's Is not .set foith. As
the dispatch does not mention The
Hague, it Ik thought that the mlnlsteis
aie hopelul of being able to settle the
piopottiou to be lecelved by each
power, by discussion at Ptkln.
Ofllclal advices lecelved here from
Pekln say the miulstei.s aie divided
into two parlies In tlie discussion to
decide how China is to raise the indem
nity. Prance, Cleiinnuy, Russia, and
Japan agice In fax or of raisins llio
custom duties, -which can be lelled
upon to pioduco a great patt of tho
lecjulslte sum. and the imposition of a
duty on junks, which will constitute a
tax on inland navigation, and the
taking ovei ot some or the llkin duties.
On the other hand, the United States
and Cieat Hiitaln decline to agiee to
nn Incie.use of the customs duties, hut
they do not appear to h.te piesented
a eiiii nt ei -proposition.
The fact that the United States and
Ctcat Britain have joined hands on this
question has caused surprise heie. It
-was hoped tho United Slates would
stand with Fiance anil Itussla. The
