General Hwang lUing, comrade of Dr.
Sun V ;t t t-cn, the firet minister of war
n the liift rouiblican cabinet of China
and tho lender of the revolutionary
troops in the early days of the first
revolution, outlined his own and Doctor
Sun's attitude toward the government
of President Yuan Sliih-kai in the
words quoted, granting The Advertiser
an extended and exclusive interview
yesterday afternoon, during the few
hum spent ashore while the S. 8. Tenyo

the revolutionary army,-Lee f?hi Cheng

nditor of the suppressed Eepublican, a
former Shanghai newspaper, is on his
way to the Vnlted States from To!lo.
He and his party will spend five months
la America and will then go to Europe.
Not Collecting Trip.
"The object of our trip Is not to
raise mouev, hilt to lay before the
world the actual conditions that exist
in China today," said General Hwang.
I come direct from Sun Yat Sen, with
message from- him -to America, for
we desire that Americans should, know
the truth, i We come to America first
bocauxe we received our ideals of lib
erty from America and because it was
from America that our new republic
obtained its first recognition. We are
aguiu revolutionists, and our cause hus
to have . money to succeed, of eourso,
but we are not asking for money, first.

how libeity Is being , crushed in Jour

up before the world as a self seeker,
as a grafter and as a man who abscond

lies, just as it is a lit sent out by
orders of Yuan Shih-kai that White
Wolf is an ally of the revolutionists
and is pillaging and murdering for our
benefit. While Wolf has nothing what
ever to do with us, nor we with niui.
No eal Constitution.
"The new constitution which has
been proclaimed in China is not a re
publican constitution at all, in. any
sense of the word, while even the guar'
antoes contained in it are being flouted
every day by Yuan Khlb-kui and his
emissaries. - People are being executed
all over China without trial and with
out eonviution. Suspicion of revolu
tionary ideas is enough to bring death.
Only recently there were five hundred
men of the army at Nanking shot down
because it was thought that they were
not wholly loyal to Yuan S'hib-kai. . The
assassim of Yuan are every where, and
the : people ' are-: terrorized and afraid
even to whisper their disappointment
over the result of the overthrow of the
Manchus. ' ' . - - .
' No Chance to Resist.
'. "if the people had arms they would
rise aguiu iu such numbers that Yuan
would be hunted out of Peking at once,
But they have neither arms nor' money
with which to buy thorn, ami they have
to submit. ' But, iu the end the people
will win, China know what it is to
be free anI that knowledge win keep
alive the hatred of tyranny until the
tune comes when the people can assert
themselves, ana when they can they
will.." -, .- - ,'

' General Hwang states that, Sua .Vat
Heu is still rin .Tokio, despite-, reports
to the coutrary, and says that he left
Doctor Sun only a few days ago. He,
himself, has been, living in hiding in
Tokio, guarding himself against the
agents of Yuan Shih-kai who had orders
to kill binf ou sight. The Chinese gov
eminent have a standing offer of I
hundred thonsaud Mexieau dollar for
the; head of General Hwang, and several
attempts on the life of the former min
ister of 'war have been made dtirin
the past year. When he aud his party
left Japan they were guarded from
Tokio to Yokohama and in the latter
city by Japanese secret service men.
