< By Associated Press.)
Famborougb, . Hanip.shlrc, Eng.,
June 2.?When Empress Bugen ie of
France recently celebrated her nine
tieth birthday at the residence where
she passes exile from her native coun
try she bade fair to fulfill a prophecy
raado by a gypsy woman at Madrid in
1839?that she would live somewhere
about a hundred years i She enjoys
remarkable health, and is able to got
r.heut tho house, although suffering
somewhat frpm lameness1 for many
years. Every day she is taken out
In a bath chair to enjoy the open air,
of which she is extremely fond.
The Empress often entertains vis
itore, mostly relative, and with her
on ?er birthday were Prince Victor
a ad their family'. In oue wing of her
house she bas had apartments flttod
up for a number of wounded British
officers', and she paid a visit to them
oh the day of her anniversary, end
spoke to them of their experiences at
the front, for she exhibits keen in
terest in the war. On sevoral occas
ions che has Invited small parties of
the less severely wounded among
them to dinner, nad their presence at
her table appears to have had re
markable effect on her spirit..
>The story of the gipsy's prophecv
Is told in connection with a slight
accident which occurred to tho little
Spun I.u princess, when she was only
th'rteen. She was a girl of very
high spirit and one day when romp
ing, slid down the stair bannister so
fast thai she dashed her head ".K.inst
a project ion and fell unconscious. A
icipsy woman who was passing the
doorway entered .and assisted inr re
storing tho princess, whose mother
was bewailing the accident.
"There is no. danger," said the gip
sy. "The llttld l*dy will live to about
a hundred. She Was born under the
open sky on the night of a battle.
She will be ? queen." .
As a matter of fact, whether the
gipsy knew it or. not, the nirl .who
waB, to bpeom'V ; Empress .of France
was born at Oranda in a tent in the
ualace garden where her mother had
taken refuge during an earthquake.
Tho princess herself was rather
suporstitlous. and when she was af
fianced to tho Emperor, Napoleon
III, sho was found one day by b?r
mother In the act of working ont a
symbol of letters end figures, which
on investigation turned out to be her

STATUS OF THE PROVINCES
CANNOT BE DETERMINED
UNDER CONDITIONS THAT
NOW EXIST?THREE DE
. (By Associated Pr?as.)
Peking, Juno 2.?So much contusion
relgnB in 8outh Chi nr. thai it is im
poss.'Me to determine exactly what
the status of many of the Southern
provinces Ib at this particular tlmo.
Yun-nan, Kwei-chow and Kwung-at
provinces not only declared their in
dependence of the Peking govern
ment, but havo not allied themaelvea
with the other three provinces, in
other words, Kwuug-tung, Che-klan?
and Kiang-nt provinces have pro
claimed themselves neutral. They
aro protecting themselves agaluat
botli iii-; go*orn>auni und ?h? robol
troops, and their action seems to have
served internal peace and proveuunlj
clal transactions ot ordinary com
mercial transactions rather than - to
protosct against tho Peking govern
ment or ahow sympathy with tho
moVemont for a southern republic.
When Kwang-tun gprbvince, with
tho important city of Cauton, declared
its independence, thto enemies of the
.Peking government felt that Yuan
Shi-kai's fate.was sealed. However,
tbo revolutionary leaders In Kwang
tung are so unfriendly to each other
j and . have had so many diaaenBlona
that Kwang-tung's soccaalon seem*
to havo little effect on tho national
situation. 4 .
On April .12, representatives of tthe
warring pollt'cal fuctlona in Canton
held a g?n?ral, meeting to dls<
the situation, i'he leadora .of the con
ference disagreed so violently that
revolvers. were drawn - and men out'
side tthe conference zoom Jlred rjfles
aide the conference room \ fired
rifles - at the members. Uoh
bors have been Inspired by the unset
tled condition? to engage in looting
the northern districts of Kwang-^ung
and the province has been compelled
to-issue a manifesto preventing both
the government troops and tho revo
lutionism from croaaing Its borders.
Meanwhile , the 30 days' truce which
war? arranged with Tsal Ao, the lead
er of the Independence movement In
Yunnan province, la- in effect, ami
there iB no fighting in Sze-chucn pro
vince, -which was the c?ntre of 'so
much bloodshed early in the revolu
tion. This armistice may be extend
ed, it is indicated. Negotiations be
tween Tsal Ao and the PcMng gov
ernment are progressing satisfactory
ily through the medium of Chap Yi,
military governor of Sze-.chuen prov
isoes. 8s?l Ao is quite willing that
Yuan Shlh-kal shall remain as pres
ident; Indeed, tie Insiste that ho must
remain. ?b\t Ute conditions under
which T/vai ao would hove him con
tinue involves a complete change in
the*present form of government under
which all powcrB centres In .Yuan
Shlh-kal. Tsal Ao demands that thure
shall bo a popularly-elected, .parlia
ment, a responsible cabinet represen
tative of all the various provinces of
China, and that the milUary troopa
in . south China now, engaged in the
.revolution' shall -be retained as gov
ernment troops, but placed under tho
direction ot the cabinet, rather than
under, the personal . supervision. of
There' le Httlo' cooperat'-m between
the revolutionary leaders in Yunnan
Kwel-chow and Kwang-sl, and those
in the other provinces vfldcb havo de
clared. their , independence. , ,Th?
Kwang-tung (revolutionists ' 's.: are... In?
sistent that Yuan Shl-koi must Abdi
cate. In Klang-sl the.movement has
been milder,, and apparently' tbero is
no clamor for Yuan Sbl-kal's retire
ment. Although Che-kla?g has offi
cially declared its independence, mo?y
Of its torom'nent officials hive, main
tained their loyalty to the Peking gov
ernment and insist there Is no demand
for Yuan Bkl-lt?i's abdletton. Tang
Shso-yi and other, radical . revolution
ary leaders in Shanghai are unani
mous in their demand, for Yuan Shi
kaI'u abdication, and insist that peace
cannot come to China while the ores

The absolute lack'of coordl^ilon
