17/1- -J'LA) i\<: DOUBLE"!
it i? doI surprising that tin? ifanchus
snsj.ocr il? Prime Minister <?f China of
?ut. doubl?'." There are. ind?*ed,
three major reasons why they might
uatnrally expect him to do so. One is
their tram prononces to 'play double"
and their inclination, shared with mosl
other pnopla in Ihe w??r!d, lo judge
others by themselves. Another I?- the
familiar practice of ?loin? that same
thing in which i bines? statesmen and
politicians commonly Indulge. The
third is th" well known record of Mr.
Yuan himself, who through??ul Ids pul?
ii<- career has been <?ne of the most
versatile opportunists in the world,
turning from on?- side to the other with
the utmost ""Spedition .'?ml nonctelance.
He was thus regarded as having be
traye-d the Fdiipeior and tbe reformer?
to the forniiilablc Iiowager >tap**flaj
in tlie last Naga, r.nd for that cause
has stnee been reir-irded with distrust
atui reeentmeni by many of the? i*eform
A ?liscriiuinating estimate, however,
will bold Yuan Sbih-kai to be not a
irait?ir nor a trickgter, but an oppor?
tunist in the more creditable sense of
thai term. To ?me aim and principle
and - .ins?' Ii?- is unswervingly loyal,
ami thai is th" welfare of the Chinese
Empire When th?- urging of reforms
v, ?'m? io tend t<? thai end he is the
ii?,si strenuous of reformers. Whayj re
forms hard been inopportune and im?
practicable he has been conservative
almost to reaction. That he is at heart
a reformer is not to be questioned in
view* of the fact that nearly all of the
substantial and significant reforms In
late years In China have la-en due lo
bis Initiative. Arxl lha!, by the way. i?,
another reas??n why i lie Mancbus
should not have expected him t?> be a
thick and thin supporter of their re?
actionary and moribund nil?-.
At tbe present time Mr. Yuan Is con
