Tlie Herman and French ambassadors and Mr. Ro ge'stvensky, for tlie Russian ambassa dor, -were among today's callers on Dr. Hill, acting secretary of state. Tlie discussion was almost entirely on Chlnov affairs, the press dispatches as to nu agreement on $27:1,000,000 indemnity and a change of customs du ties having excited considerable inter est in olllclal and diplomatic quarters. None of the callers were able to con !lrm Hie r ports, but the opinion was general that an agreement on Indem nity had been readied.

The original tola' f claims amounted to a half biiiio;;' jllars, so that tho present, total leiv.esent a scaling down of about -10 per cent.

VERNON HARC0URT LEADS Ho Asserts That the Tax Will Throw tho Coal Trade Into Chaos and Con fusion It Is a Most Unbusiness like Way of Dealing with a Groat Trade Sir Michael Hicks-Beacb Eurnishes Statistics. By tl.tflmlve Wire (10111 TIib Associated Vrtn. London, Jlay L There was a largo attendance in the house of commons' today In anticipation of the discussion of the new export tax on coal, but other matters occupied the time of the house nnd those In attendance had to wait until nearly il o'clock for thu beginning of thu debate. Sir William. Vorrion-Huroourt (Liberal) led with a,, severe, almost violent arraignment of the government. Iln said the ' tax would throw (ho coal trade into chaos and. contusion. It recklessly disre garded existing contracts and was a most unbuslness like way of dealing with 11 great trade. It wast an extra ordinary and vexatious piece of bung ling. It was nonsense to say that tho foreigner would pay the tax because he would not do without coal. The government of Ttuly had answered 1 hat plea by taking coal from Ami"" ca Instead of this country. The tram; of France was equally divided between tills country, Germany and Belgium. The chancellor of the exchequer. Sir Michael Hlcks-noach, interrupting, said: "We are beating the others." "Then go on beating them," said Sir William Yernon-'llnroourt, "why throw a shilling Into the scale against this country''" Sir William contended that It was class legislation and that the , tax would ultimately come out of the miners' wages. The chancellor of the exchequer ad mitted that the tax, like every tax, was an obstruction on trade. The real question was. Could tlie export trade In coal bear the tax? It could. Eng lish coal was of so good a ounllty, there was much of It and it could not be got in any other country. Thus to a. large extent it was free from competition." Tho chancellor submitted mosses of statistics, which ho summarized, show ing 2ij,U00,00O tons wore mined In lfMO, on which, after deducting .C1S.000.OOt In wages more than In 1S97, left tho coal owners a net prodt of 29,000,000 on a. capital of 1:0,000,000. ne hail some difficulty in keeping' his patience when deputations talked to him about the unprofitable condition of trade, lie bad not proposed the tax for merely one year, and It would be on those who were able to bear It. As to the competition of the United States, Sir Michael HICks-Beach said: "Last year the price of our coal at the port of export rose very much higher than the price of coal in tho United States, but in spite of that our export of coal wus 3S,000,000 tons, or oV'OO.OOO tons more than tho previous year. The ITnlted States exported a. little over Hi.000,000 tons; If the United States could not compete when thu price of our coal was very high, It would be absolutely impossible for them to compete when the price of our coal was low."
