New Emperor of China Prominent

Politics for Years.

AS HEAD OF THE REPUBLIC
Lately Installed Ruler Sends Photograph
of Himself to tJ. S. SenaCAAI.L
- * T? i
tux oauiouuiy 01 ueiawure.
Yuan Shih-k'ai, popularly spelled in
| this country Yuan Shi Kai, formerly
1 president of China, now emperor, has
sent to Senator Saulsbury of Delaware
an autographed photograph of
himself in memory of an audience
j which the emperor gave the senator
during the latter's visit to China last
summer. This photograph, which
shows the emperor in the uniform of
a general of the Chinese army, is reproduced
in The Star today.
Senator Saulsbury, whose audience
! with the emperor made a marked impression
upon the Delaware senator,
and left him convinced that Yuan
Shih-k'ai had a remarkable grasp upon
affairs, was compelled to converse with
the emperor through an interpreter,
who was unable to speak English.
"My Chinese was a little rusty," said
the senator, with a smile, when he
spoke of the audience last night.
His Career Eventful.
The career of Yuan Shih-k'ai has
been eventful. He may well be said to ;
be a self-made man?a man who has ^
grown great in bis own country g
through native ability. His start was }
small; and while he was.the recipient t
of some favors in. early youth, he j
carved his way to success by his own j
He is hot an old man. by any means, r
only fifty-six years oid. His father,
Yuan Pao-chung, never held office or r
distinguished himself in any way. c
Yuan Shih-k'ai. however was adopted \

who had had some military experience, t
and who gave him his start in life. In fc
1873 his father by adoption died, and ]
in the following year Yuan Shih-k'ai i
went to Peking and there studied un- t
der another uhcle. Yuan Pao-ling. He c
took the government examinations in I
1876, but failed to pass them. f
Marries When 17 Years Old. s
He was only seventeen years old J1
at that time, but nevertheless he was
married to Miss Yu. Two years later
his first son was born. Yuan K'o-ting.
In the autumn of that year Yuan (
Shih-k'ai again attacked'the govern- c
ment examinations, but again he fail- E
ed to get a degree. a
His chance came, however, when,- in x
the winter of 1880, Gen. Wu Ch'ang- v
ch-ing, who was in command of the s
Shantung coast guards, gave him an a
appointment as one of his secretaries ?
at Tengchou Fu. He was then twenty- fa.
one years old. t
In the summer of 1882 disorders broke
out in Chosen, then called Korea, and j
the Japanese invaded Seoul. The na- ^
tives appealed to China for help, arid z
the emperor ordered Wu Ch-ang-ch- |
ing to lead a military force to Korea. (
Yuan Shih-k'ai, as the secretary of the \
general, tdok a prominent part in the \
expedition. The Korean troubles were
finally smoothed out and the name of 2
Yuan Shih-k'ai was sent with others .
to the court for recognition. He was j
given the rank of subprefect and the (
peacock plume. >Gen. Wu relied greatly
upon the abilities of the young China- t
man and gave nun more anu more j
work to do. The King of Korea asked ]
Gen. Wu to organize a military force -<
for him, and the work was turned over y
by Gen. Wu to Yuan Shih-k'ai. The (
king gradually came to rely upon him ,
for advice in all important matters.J v
Gen. Wu died in 1884, and Yuan Shihk'ai
became the de facto head of the
Becomes Minister to Korea.
Through the troubled times which t
followed in Ko'rea, Yuan Shih-k'af was 1
the leading actor. Finally he was given f

tnd went as Chinese minister to Korea,
de constantly attempted to increase
he Chinese influence over Korea. This
>rought him into conflict with the
rapanese, and alko with the KoreanAmerican
party, which was striving to
nake Korea really independent.
For several years Yuan Shih-k'ai
"aue neauway ii^uniM uuiu mc ^ _
an party and the Japanese. But finaly'the
Japanese went to war with
;hina as a result of the Chinese acivities
in Korea, and the Chinese were
>eaten. This was in 1894. Yuan Shihca'ai
took no part in the actual fightng.
He escaped from Korea and went
o Tientsin. He managed to escape the
lisgrace tffcit fell upon his chief, Li
lung Chang, as a result of the
ailure of the Chinese in the war, and
ater he was appointed to organize a
mall model army with modern equipnent.
For his success in this venture
ie was made provincial judge in 1897.
Active Factor in Intrigues.
Intrigue after intrigue followed in
!hina, the emperor attempting to overome
the influence of the dowager emmess,
Tzu-hai. Yuan Shih-k'ai was an
.ctive factor ^n these intrigues, and
^as rewarded by the dowager empress,
vhose cause he espoused, though
ecretly. He became viceroy of Chihli,
nd later acting governor of Shantung,
nd then governor. But he disappoint,
d the hopes of the reactionaries. He
uppressed the Boxer uprising in Shanung
and protected all foreigners there.
After the flight of the imperial court
n the summer of 1900, Li Hung Chang
vas summoned back to his old position
is viceroy of the metropolitan province
:o straighten things out for the Man?hu
court. When he died in 1901 in
Peking, Yuan Shih-k'ai was promoted
^9- his place. "
Yuan Shih-k'ai was very active in
irmy reform and reforms in educationil
matters. The Manchu court feared
lis increasing military power. On the
leath of the emperor and the dowager
impress in 1908, Prince Cru'un became
:he prince regent of China and one of
?is first acts was to dismiss Yuan ShihCai
from office. He intended to have
Yuan Shih-k'ai killed, it is saicl, but
vas dissuaded from doing so by high I
>fHcials. Yuan retired to the country
ind lived as a country gentleman of |
ligh rank for three years. j
Is Called From Retirement.
The court fell into a panic over the
success of the Yangtze valley revoluionists
in 1911 and called Yuan Shihk'ai
from his retirement to save the
:ottering dynasty. He was made com ses

mander-in-chief of all the imperial
forces, and then premier. Finally November
13. 1911. he came to Peking: and
was virtually dictator from that time
on. The prince regent, his enemy, resign^
from office December 6 of that
year. The young emperor, Hsuan
T'ung, abdicated February 12, 1912.
Yuan Shi-k'ai was then elected president
of the .Chinese republic by the assembly
at Nanking: February 15. The
national assembly was arbitrarily dissolved
January 10. 1914. After that
Yuan was nominally president, but actually
dictator of China, until he recently
took the title of emperor.
