tin, who a month ago resigned the

college In Pekln und since has been
offered a similar position with the
Chinese university In Wii Chang, has
arrived here by the steamship Empress
of Japan. Dr. Martin was in Pekln
during the siege.
"China has completed a treaty with
the foreign powers and all is quiet
now," he said, "but how long it will
remain a placid country no one can
say. The recent tieaty of Great Brit
ain and Japan guarantees peace for a
time only, for there is a feeling tend-'
ing to the disintegration of the coun

Britain, Japan and the United States
are for tho maintenance of the integ
rity of China, but Russia, France and
others are for slicing up the kingdom.
"Regarding the Manchurlan ques
tion, Russia did not get the special
concessions favored by the treaty made
by Li Hung Chang. Even to the hour
before his death, when the Chinese
statesman was all but unconscious, M.
l.essar was working with him to have
him place his signature to the treaty
by which Russia would have obtained
all she 'wanted."

"The Russians are scheming In many
ways for the retention of the districts.
Thete were rumors before I left Pekln
that icbel foiccs were In motion in
Kansu and were supposed to bo acting
in concert wfth troops of Prince Tuan,
the ex-Boxer leader. I do not think It is
likely that they illl march on Pekln,
but they will hold an area In Shansl
and Mongolia. In Ningshia, his Kansu
capital, Prince Tuan has a strong
point." Russian forces In Manchuria are 40,
000 infantry, 20,000 cavalry, 19,000 artil
lery, 2,400 engineers and 8,000 railway
corps, or a total of 93,800. To these
may be added the Amur army, which

force In those regions of Asia Is 123,200.

ended. A. G. Spalding has resigned
his claim as chief executive of the big

Mr. Spalding's letter of resignation

The letter was addressed to the

Ocntlemen: In accepting tiie presidency f
the National league, to which office I was in
formed 'last December I had been duly elected,
I promulgated the following platform as the

To piomote, foster, elevate and perprtuitc

To eliminate all objectionable features that
may tend to degrade and demoralize the i-port.
To inculcate in the governors of the game,

with ample power to carry into effect these and
other objects that tend to maintain the integ

Conditions hive arisen, which in my opinion
nnlie it impossible at this tijie to my out nil
the pilneiples embodied in iho-alimo platfnim,
and as no compromise or modification of tlieso
principles will tie sitUfactory to me, I hale de

fully insist that it be accepted without delay.
I wih to emphatically declare that I am
prompted in this action solely by the belief tint

A. G. Spalding.
Thus ends one of the bitterest inter

to wreck the organization.
While Mr, Temple has not been for

unanimously to offer him the place.
