Special Correspondent Tells of
Conditions a Year After
By GEORGE WOODHEAD.
Special .Star-bullftin Correspondence
PEKING, China, October 12.
October 10 was the first anniversary of
the outbreak of the Revolution at Wu
cbang. It was observed throughout
China as a National Festival, and was
trade the occasion of public rejoicings
and celebrations In every city of im
portance. Many of the Chinese news
papers appeared in red ink, and all
cf them devoted much of their space
to jubilant articles upon the anniver
sary. In Peking itself the President
iield a review of some 15..000 or 20,000
troops outside his residence ,and an
official reception, to which ali promi-
ru nt Chinese officials and foreign resi
dents were invited was held subse
quently in the Cabinet building. The
President also marked the occation by
conferring various grades of the new
Orders of .Merit upon officials and oth
ers which have rendered cwhspkuous
service to the Republic, among the re
cipients being Dr. Sun Yat Sen.
General Li Yuan-hung (the Vice-President),
General Huang Hsing, and the
oembers of the Cabinet.
In many centers the anniversary cele
brations were awaited with consider
able apprehension and there will be
corresponding relief that they have
passed off without any untoward in
cidents. Though it cannot be denied
that confidence in the Government is
increasing, there is still a decidedly
jumpy feeling in many important
cities, notably at Wuchang, vhere the
vigilance of the local authorities has
been taxed to the utmost to uneartn
and frustrate plots against the Govern
ment The first anniversary of the outbreak
of the Revolution finds Yuan Shih Ka:

Essured of his. personal safety, and has
no intention of risking a repetition of
the incident of January 17.
While it is maintained in officia'
circles that the outlook i9 most prom
isine. there is an undercurrent of
pessimism. The Jubiliation with
which; the announcement of the flota
lion of the first half of the crisp 10,
000,000 loan was greeted, has now
been replaced by a feeling of mlsgiv:
lng, for the. significance of the fact
that the public subscribed for less
than 52.000,000 is at last being realiz
ed, and there is considerable anxiety
regarding the,' effect, of the Balkan
crisis upon the European money mar
kets. It is becoming clearer day by
day that even if -the full amount of
10.000.000 be floated that sum wil?
be utterly inadequate to relieve China
cf her financial embarrassments. The
provinces remain reluctant and tardy
in fac? of the appeals of the Centra'
Government for funds, and it is ex
tremely unlikely that any uniform
system of taxation will bet enforced
refore the assembling of the' new Par
liament next year.
In every direction the Government
continues to be harrassed by lack of
funds. Few, if any, of the elaborate
schemes of reorganization and reform
which have been prepared upon paper
can be accomplished until the govern
ment is in possession of a large sum
of ready money. Certain of these re
forms are 'regarded, as necessary to
justify the very existence of the gov
ernment, and yet it' is patent to all
:hat any aUempt at this juncture to
enforce a uniform sysem of taxation
for the benefit of the central govern
ment will be doomed to failure, if if
did not actually jeopardize the repub
ic itself A mrnority of thoughtful
(Chinese now appear to be comin.fi
around to the view that the financial
outlook has not been appreciably im
proved by the Crisp loan, and thai
China's financial difficulties will not
be over until the government is in a
position eitl.er to enforce the collec
tion and remittance of uniform taxes,
r to command further financial as
sistance from abroad.
Attacks on British Policy.
In certain sections of the Chinese
press the flotation of the Crisp loan
lias been made the occasion of a cam
paign cf vilification of the British
Go ernmnnt, and in particular of the
IJritish r.'inister af Peking, who id
Doyen of the Diplomatic Corps. The
Peking Daily News, a paper which is
owned and edited by Chinese, but
printed in English, has been particu
larly offensive in its remarks about
Sir John Jordan. For some years
iliis journal has been regarded as th
semi-official organ of the Chinese for-'
eifth office. Its official connection i
mow denied., but it is actually edited
by an official in the Ministry of c m
mnnicat ions. Three days ago the
Piesidenr found it necessary ti issne
iiiiinKtioi.s to the Chinese Press,.
through the Minister, of Interior, not
to ridicule or slander the ministers of
foreign powers, and to remind them
that such conduct amounted to a I
gross breach of international cour
tesy. It is idle to deny that Great Brit
ain's connection with the Sextuple
group has made her extremely un
popular in many quarters. A day or
two ago one of the leading Chinese
papers published a lengthy article en-1
titled "A proiosed Triple Alliance.'
In this article Britain's policy in the
Far Last is stated to "excite laugh
ter and pity, rather than command re
spect" and it is asserted that "to
form an alliance with her now will
scarcely be of any advantage to us.''
It proceeds to urge that China would
derive most advantage from allying
herself with the United State9 and
Germany. However visionary such a
proposal may be. it is interesting as
showing the revulsion of feeling
against Great Britain which her re
sent action in regard to Tibet; and
the Crisp loan, has brought about.

jiKtiiAis, sept. 2. Germans are
now paying for all kinds of meat,
wheat, rye and several other necessar
ies of life prices higher than are paid
anywhere else in the world. Prices
are still rising and the per capita con
sumption of virtually all foodstuffs Is
falling off. The number of horses
slaughtered ior meat in Berlin during
me nrsi six montns or me present
year reached 5,924 and exceeded the
figures for the corresponding period
of 1911 by 1,463. The Germans ate
43,762 tons less of beef in the first
half of this year than in 1910, and

Retail butchers have had to pay 22
cents a pound for dressed i beef, and
veal is higher. Veal cutlets bring
from 48 to 53 cents tne pound. Offi
cial statistics for the last week 6f
August - showed Mannheim paying
$12.50 more per ton of wheat than la
paid in the United States,; and $11
more per ton for rye, the chief bread
stuff of the people, than is paid in
any other country.
Market days throughout the cities
and towns of Silesia are being marked
by mad riots of a people enraged over
the high prices exacted for; virtually
everything they must buy. The police.
have had to guard the dealers in Lieg
nitz, Glogauer, Jauer, Hirschberg and
half" a dozen towns more.
Faced by these conditions, the gov
ernment finally, has admitted, through
the official VNorth German gazette.
the existence of almost famine prices
for virtually all necessaries; and es
pecially for meat. It still : asserts,
however, that the period of high pri
ces is only temporary, and that a nor-
mal lower lever must soon be reach

of view, the government believes that
no legislative or other remedy is need

The Diet of the Kingdom of Bava
ria debated an interpellation looking
to a general lowering or abolition of
the tariff rates on necessaries of life.
Herr von Sodenf Minister of the In
terior, answering the interpellation,
declared that such action would have
no effect on prices, and furthermore,
that it couid not be considered in any
event, since it would mark a depar
ture of Germany from the establish
ed protective policy. The municipal
authorities of Frankfort-on-the-Main
have addressed a second petition to
the government, asking relief from
conditions, which make it all but im
possible for the lower classes to get
enough to eat.
