WASHINGTON DAYBOOK By PRESTON GROVER WASHINGTON. Jan. 10.— Nations unlucky enough to be responsible for the. deaths of Americans usually hav to pay through the use, but anybody looking for a pattern to guide this country and Japan in settling for the three Americans killed in connection with the Panay bombing can find a wide variety of precedent. Two of the three Americans lulled were members of the Panay crew and it usually comes high to kill an American sailor or soldier. Often the indemnity demanded for Americans not in tbe government service is less—but not always. As a matter of record, those zealous Yankees who insist one American is worth four or five "furrin- ers" would not be far off. There was a time 30 or 40 years ago when American miners and cowboys seemed to think Italians, Mexicans and Chinese were good mostly for targets, and killed numbers of them. Few paid for the crimes and the government established a price oE about $2,500 a head as indemnity to tbe families of the victims. But in the same years i£ an American happened to be killed abroad the indemnity demands ranged into real money, $10000 to $15000 being not uncommon. * * * Episode In Common Robert Imbrie, was second vice- consul In Persia In 1921 A mob injured him seriously in an attack near a fountain and Persian soldiers who were stationed to guard him in a hospital turned on him and murdered him. This government demanded—' and got—$60,000 indemnity for Mrs. Imbrie and exacted $120,000 for the cost of sending a cruiser to Persia to bring the body home. However, the $120,000 was set aside as a fund to pay for education of Persian scholars in America. Between 1895 and 1900 a half dozen Italians were lynched in Louisiana and California and the United States paid only $2,500 each for them. Similar sums were paid to the survivors of several Mexican workers lynched in connection with murders. . In 1927 when Mexican soldiers killed a 22-year-old American oil field foreman it cost Mexico $9.000 in cash. II. cost the Chinese government $25.000 when in 1918 bandits shot Howard LeRoy O'Brien, CONTINUOUS 11 AJ/tO IIP I i TODAY ONLY NERO WOLFE MYSTtaon wllh I WALTER CONNOLLY 1 Lionel Sunder • Ednnrdo 1 Clmiwllt • !««• Hetvey WEDNESDAY ONLY THRILLS SWEEP THE RIVER! 11 A.

Benjamin W. Labaree, a Presbyterian missionary. Persia offer- eel $9,000 hut a TJ. S. consul demanded $50,000, together with execution of the ring leader and 13 participants. Persia, poor from loss of trade with war-torn Russia, agreed to the $50,000 hut pleaded for the life of the ring leader on the grounds it would he sacrilegious to kill him since he happened to be a direct descendant of Mo- bammed. Mrs. Labaree, in turn, objected that the $50,000 was too high and asked only $16,000. The consul insisted she take $30,000 and she did on condition it should not be collected from the zone of the mission. She feared such a levy there would upset all the missionary work. Mohammed's descendant got life. Eileen WeiiKel, who got an award of $40,774 in 1936 for the loss of her beauty in an accident, will risk $1,000 of her money against fifty thousand of Tommy Manvillo's dollars on the outcome of the l : arr- Braddock fight. She likes Purr, Manville likes Braddock. Result— the bet, and at very gallant, odds. chief engineer of the U. S. S. Monocacy of the Yangtze patrol. The Japanese government, in turn, had to shell out $15,000 because a Japanese sentry in Vladivostok', Rus- sia.shot Lieut. W. H. Laiigdon, engineer of the U.S.S. Albany, in 1921 during tile Allied occupation pf Siberia. Yet when a drunken American sailor killed a Nicaraguan in 1930 the family received only 52,500, a sum based on what the Nicaraguan would have earned during the rest of his life. The sailor served two years in jail. * # * A Missionary Wounded In 1S6S Japanese natives killed 11 French sailors in a Japanese port and the French demanded $150,000 together with immediate executon of all guilty. All one afternoon Japanese officials beheaded their townsmen nntil the French tired and fearful of reprisals, called a halt.
