i1!NISTER WU'S PLANS FOR SAV
Washington, April 21.-The
Chinese minister, Mr. Wu Ting
Fang. is about to make a move of
far-reaching importance to the
affirs of China and one which
cannot, it is believed, but engage
the favorable attention of all the
foreign powers interested in the
affairs of the empire. He is pre
paring a memorial to the Chinese
government, based upon his initi
mato acquaintance with the af
fairs of the western world, andi
pointing out wherein there is the
opportunity for China to ad'opt
an enlightened and progressive
policy which will bring it into
hariony with the sisterhood of
nations, and at the same time
will relieve it from the present per
plexities which are crowding Upol
it at all hands. The memorial is
a comprehensive document, cov
ering twenty heads, dealing with
adlministrative, economical and
financial questions. The docu
ment purposely avoids radical
and Qxtreme reforms which have
interfered with previous efforts to
bring about a change in the ex
isting order of affairs.
M r. Wu has sought to find a
middle ground of conserevatism
and one acceptable to Ciiina and
the world at lrge.
Minister Wu is acting entirely
upon his own initiative and re
sponsibility without any reference
to his status as minister to Wash
ington or any suggestion from
officials here. While he has had
the matter in contemplation for
some time, yet there has been no
occasion or opportunity for giving
expression to his plans. Now,
however, this opportunity has
presented itself in the form of a
recent imperial edict inviting the
high officials of China at home
and abroad-viceroys, governors,
and ministers abroad-to present
to the government every facility
at their comnmand to aid in over
cominln the present disastrous
coniition of affairs. Acting upon
this eliet edict Mr. Wu has pre
pared his comprehensive memorial
to tho government.
In stating the needs anJ advan
tage of conservative rcformn the
mimnister's memori:, points to the
lesson Japan has give to the
world. Up to a few years ago
,were almost identical. /
But by the gradual adoption of
modern methods of procedure
Japan has brought herself into
lose communication with the
est of the world and now occu
>isan enviable position along
with the other .great powers.
Minister Wu holds that there is
no thing lacking in the resources
of China, or in the character of
her people to keep her from se
mring the same advantages which
have come to Japan.
Thme memorial specifies along
wlhat lives changes can be ma3e
ith advantage. As stafed, these
over administrative, economic
man financial conditons. One of
he most important subjects re
ently under consideration by the
owers at Pekin has been that
elating to the establishment of a
foreign office at Pekin to take
he place of the tsung li yanmen.
The plan~ of the powers is that
he old board of ten members
hall be replaced by a new bioard
>f five members, with a prince of
he blood at its head, two min
sters of foreign affairs, andl two
ice niinisters, the latter to have
aknowledge of foreign languamges.
'fhis plan has not been wholly
atitsfactory to the foreign minis
ers and their governments, but
hey have accepted it with the
elief that it was at least an hm
rovement on tho old tsung Ii
amen and one which would be
nore likely to concur with China's
esire to have important work
erformed by boards instead of
Mr. Wu's memorial will go even
fadher than the powers have sug
gsted as to the establishment of
amoderns foreign service. In

AGUINALDO URGES ALLEGIANCE.
Manila, April 22.-A represent
ative of the Associated Press vis
ited Aguinaldo this afternoon at
5; Solano street, where he was
remnoved from Malacanan, and
fonid him in a large room up
stairs, furnished with a table, a
typewriting machine, three settees
and twenty chairs. His wife,
who was entertaining a number of
Filipino women friends, sat at one
end of the room, while Aguinaldo,
smoking a cigar and chatting with
Benito Legardo, occupied the op
Others present were Lieut. Col.
John S. Mallory of the Forty-first
volunteer infantry, who has charge
of Aguinaldo; Lieut. Gilbert A.
Youn,) :g of the Third artillery,
and Mr. Fisher, Gen. McArthur's
Aguinaldo, whose bearing was
corteous and dignified, was dress
ed in white, and looked well, and
altogether made an excellent im
pression. Legardo, who but re
(ently returned from the United
States, was telling about the trip,
and he seemed intensely inter
ested, smiling frequently and ask
ing numerous questions. He in
quired particularly as to what
President McKinley said, and
seemed anxious to know what was
thought of him in the United
States. He was rather reluctant
to talk for publication, and con
sidered every question carefully
before answering it. He said he
was doing all he could to assist in,
the pacification of the Philippines
and expressed himself as sur
prised at what the Americans had
1!complished. When he was first
captured, lie went on to say, he
was greatly astonished to find
that a majority of the Filipinos
entertained the opinion that Amer
ican sovereignty was preferable to
independence, but now he was in
lined to believe that way himself.
He explained that since the disso
luon of the insurgent congress
and the declaration of guerri.
FaaiJ e~l1f~s had operated e
o all intents and purposes inde- "
>endently. They recognized him 5
's commander-in-chief, sending ~
imn reports occasionally, and he ~
ssued some orders; but for the S
ast seven months communication 1
ad b)een difficult, and he had
een almost disconnected.
"I am now urging in the strong
i manner possible," said Aguin
ido, "that all insurgents should si
srrender and swear allegiance to *
he United States."
He expressed the opinion that 2
inio, Lubar, Malvar and other a
:epresentative insurgents will sur
ender as soon as they come to i
mderstand the nature of the am
esty offered them. He said he
oped that when the work of paci
ition was complete and condi
ions were settled the prisoners in
uam would be released.
After referring in grateful terms c
o the courteous treatment ac- n
orded him by the military au
horities, lie declared his convic
:on that the civil government l
which would follow pacification
vould realize the highest hopes t.
f the Filipino people. .
When questioned regarding the '
eport that lie would visit the
nited States, ho replied that he ~
wuld like to (do so, but had ~
ade no plans as yet, placing s
imself entirely at the disposition c
> the American government. In ~
:oncluding the interview, he 0ob- d
"Every word in my address to '
[fy countrvmen, the Filipinos, ~
ame from mny heart. I hope the n
mericans believe me thoroughly j
sincere in my efforts to secure
eace, and, under American aus- n
ices, to promote the welfare and
>roserity of the Philippines." 1
