THE GENIAL WU
Peking. April 30. The Southern Viceroys recommend Wu Ting Fang,
the Chinese Minister at Washington, for appointment no the head of the now
Dureau of Foreign Laws. There has been strong opposition nmong conserva
tive Chinese officials to Wu Ting Fan?, Chinese Minister at Washington, re
taining a foreign mission. Those who take this view consider that his popu
larity abroad Is a proof that he It not sufficiently loyal to the Interests of
China. As a member of the Board of Foreign Laws his linguistic and legal
attainments could be utilized under the eye of the Government.

W. W. Dlmond, one oMhe members

In answer to a number of questions,

that the fair, If carrled,out, should cov

are In hopes that the steamship com
