the special commissioner of the United
States to J'ckin. He Is about !.". year.-?
of age and came originally from the
province of Hunan, where he begun bis
public career as a military ofllcer. He
was made minister to Korea and for
many years ably defended Chinese In
terests' In that troubled country. An
governor of Shan Tung he showed sur
prising ability in trantiullizlng that
dangerous province, while Ills gift for
diplomacy was exercised fully In pre
venting friction between this turbulent
population of the peninsula and the
irmans when the latter were steadily
.ncioaehlng from their original hold
ings at Kino Chow on the north coast.
As n military man. Yuan showed his
ability by the organization of what Is
undoubtedly the best military force in
China and they were his troops that
occupied I'ekin last September when
the foreign forces were withdrawn.
They are thoroughly disciplined and
well ofiicored, and considering Chinese
conservatism, they form a. magnificent
display of Yuan's ability.
"Wang "Won Shao. who is made depu
ty viceroy of Clii-Li, is also a man of
marked ability. Fortunately he always
has been friendly to foreign ideas and
Is not a reactionist. He was one of the
grand secretaries of state and is at
present one of the two ministers ap
pointed to form the new Chinese for

and was himself a member of the tsung

The records show that lie always
has exerted ills influence in the direc

Cause of Li's Death.
iVkin, Nov. S. A violent dispute
with M. Paul Lessar, "Russian minister
to China over the Manchuriuu treaty,
appears to have been the Jnunedlaio
cause of the death of LI Hung Chang.
The diplomatic events preceding this
tragic climax have enabled Japan for
n moment to frustrate the designs of
Russia, A fortnight ago the Japanese
legation secured a reliable outline of
ihe terms of the treaty and, thereupon,
demanded that the Chinese plenipoten
tiaries ofiii'ially lay before them the
text, basing this demand upon the al
legation that Japanese interests were
involved In any change of the status
of Manchuria.
The Chinese plenipotentiaries refused
to comply with the demand. Thereupon
the Japanese government from Toklo
communicated with the southern vic
eroys and induced them to use their
influence with the empress dowager
against tlio treaty. In the meantime
the empress dowager Instructed 1.1
Hung Chang to communicate the
treaty after certain modllleatlons, to
the ministers of the powers and if they
did not object to sign the same.
LI Hung Chang visited M. Lessar and
explained to him the instructions. The
rtusslan minister strongly objected to
revealing the text of the treaty to tho
ministers of the other powers and a
stormy interview ensued, LI Hung
Chang wilt homo in u violent passion
and had a hemorrhage which the doe
tors attribute to the over-exertion of a
weakened system,
While these things were happening
In Pekin, the southern viceroys sent to
Hie empress dowager a memorial
against the treaty. On receiving It
she telegraphed to Li Iltiug Chang
eoiinterinaiidlng tho order to sign. This
Instruction cnnio after LI Hung fining
bad become unconscious, When M,
Lewir endeavored to have LI Hung
Chang's seal afllxed to tho treaty, Chou
Vu, provincial treasurer, had arrived
from l'ao Ting l'u and had taken
charge of the seals as Ihe temporary
successor of Marl LI, '
The ling of the United Slates legation
was the only one half-niasteil In i'okln
today. The mourners and the family or
LI Hung Chang will burn paper offer

tom, for the uo of bis spirit In tho

mourning emblems. All the attornlanls
at the ynmon are richly attired and
many of them r-'.iiidlly dressed. Today
musicians beat drums about the house.

holding an unimportant, though luera
tlve, position as grain commissioner I it
one of the Inland towns of the province.
Tic will bo watched with the deepest
solicitude, ns the peace of China will
largely depend upon his course.
Wang "Wen Shao, w'.io is 71 years of
age uiid deaf, was never rated as u
statesman or a diplomat, ills appoint
ment Is probably temporary.
