Mr. Docker.v's speech in full. As tlia

i'lie matter which must be kept con-

time, is the fate of China herself.
This government (iocs not desire in

ike plain its disapproval of such a
course. Whether its opposition will
be effective to preserve the integrity
of the empire is uncertain and though
that possibility will not be discussed
by any of the government otlicials

events are tending in that direction

it will become important to preserve
