File No. 10388.

Consul General Denby to the Secretary of State.


(Mr. Denby reports that the Chinese local authorities have paid British subjects 50,000 Mexican and German subjects 30,000 Mexican losses on account of the Shanghai riots in December, 1905, and that the American losses, about 11,000 Mexican, have not been presented. Mr. Denby calls attention to the fact that department cabled the legation in 1906 to inform the Chinese Government that if the British and German losses were paid the payment of the American losses would be demanded and recommends that the legation be directed to act.)
