INSURGENT CHINESE GAIN

Former Minister to United States Will
Help to Form Republic In
News of Interest
Shanghai—Dr. Wu Ting Fang, who
has been chosen director of foreign
affairs In the reform government es-
tablished by the revolutionists in the
province of Kiang Su, gave a long
statement to the Associated Press in
which ho announced his adherence to
the government designed to establish
a republican form of government in
Dr. Wu Ting Fang has twice been
Chinese minister to the United
States where he became widely
known. He was first sent to Wash-
ington In 1897, remaining there until
1902 when he was recalled. He re-
turned to the same post in 1907 and
was again recalled in 1909.
He is the most Important figure that
has appeared on the rebel stage In the
last few years.
The rumor that he had espoused
the rebel cause was received with in-
At his handsome residence within
the foreign settlement of Shanghai,
Dr. Wu outlined the plans and hopes
of the reformers in China.
"Personally, I favored a limited
monarchy, retaining the emperor as
a figurehead with a strong Chinese
cabinet and constitution but the pre-
vailing sentiment seems to favor a re-
"In each province a governor will
be selected, each city and town giv-
ing Its allegiance to the new govern-
ment. The whole people of China,
north and south, are united against
Manchu supremacy and the govern-
ment at Pekin, which is corrupt and
"I admit that there are tremendous
difficulties before us, but we must
win. We guarantee an adherence to
foreign treaties whether they were
made unfairly or fairly. We will pay
our obligations to foreign nations
and open up all the ports of China
to foreign trade. Thus will be guar-
anteed an enormous advantage to all
foreigners as well as to China."
"Plans of the reformers have been
considered for six years. We can-
not hope to accomplish anything in
t short time. Trade will be tempor-
arily damaged and people inconven-
ienced and frightened.
"If the merchants are patient and
foreigners repose confidence in the
sincerity of our desire to avoid blood-
shed, rowdyism can be put down and
we guarantee a vast increase in for-
eign trade and improved foreign re-
lations. We are determined to es-
tablish a stable government and hope
to give China territorial rights and
Dr. Wu stated that there would be
no reason for foreign interference,
the suggestion of which he depre-
cated as dangerous and unpalatable
to the people. He said' the reform-
ers wished recognition as belliger-
ents wherever a responsible local
government had been set up as at
Shanghai, Wu Sung and elsewhere.
I In conclusion this man, notable iu
affairs of state, who has cast his
I lot with the revolutionists, declared

' ment and that China was now only
I anticipating the inevitable.

in such form that a declaration of the

great importance because it formally j

England and United States Will Take
Measures to Insure Safety of
Pekin, China.—The removal of the
rigorous censorship hitherto imposed
on the Chinese press is a notable
sign of the times. The Chinese pa-
pers Monday published with the great-
est freedom long accounts of the
Hankow massacre, giving the details
and attributing the blame to the im-
perialist leaders for both the Han-
kow and Shanghai outbreaks. As a
consequence of these provinces there
is increased animosity toward the
The United States and Great Bri-
tain have decided to take effective

people in China in event of danger to
foreigners which, however, does not
yet appear probable.
It is suggested that the regent's
brother, Prince Tsai Suan, has left
the country as he has not been seen
for some three days. He obtained a
month's leave from his post as acting
minister of the navy.
Demands of Rebels
A private letter from an officer of
Yuan Shi Kai's staff says the rebel
leader, General Li Yueng Peng makes
twenty-five demands, the most import-
ant of which Is that the imperial
household shall proceed to Jehol with
the entire court, including the tunuchs
and shall remain there, receiving in
turn adequate pensions from the gov-
ernment which is to be republican.
At a secret meeting of the na-
tional assembly Monday afternoon, it
was decided to telegraph Yuan Shi
Kai explaining the fearfully involved
condition of the political situation at
Pekin which required the immediate
presence of the premier. Otherwise
the assembly will be? unable to tide
over the difficulties. A member of tHe
assembly explains that this is a fair
warning and that if Yuan does not
comply another premier may be pre-
sented. Consular reports from Muk-
den say many Chinese are fleeing into
the country believing the Manchus
will retreat to Mukden and massacre
the Chinese inhabitants.
The only demand the people have
made lately which the throne has not
granted is the punishment of officials
responsible for the Hankow slaughter.

to answer most perfectly all the
purposes of a laxative, and its very
mildness and freedom from griping
recommend it especially for the use of

stimulant. Thousands of American
families have been enthusiastic about it
for more than a quarter of a century.
