CHINA'S GREAT REFORMER.
Not a Traveler, But a Statesman o
Yuan Slii K'ai is a remarkabl
man, writes Samuel Merwin in Sue
cess Magazine. lTnliko some of hi
colleagues who have traveled an
studied abroad, ho lias never, 1 hi
lieve, heen over I he sea; yet no Chi
nose official shows a firmer grasp o
this biggest and most bewildering o
the world's governmental problem.'
Practically a self-made man (hi
father was a soldier) he worked n
from rank to rank, himself a part an
a product of the antiquated absohi
I tism of his country, until he omorc
cd at the top a red-button mandarii
a viceroy, with a personality towei
ing above the superstitions, traditio
ridden court, and yet sufficiently abl
and skillful to work with ami throng
that court. We have seen in an cat

[ nor kept Shantung province quie
during the Hoxer outbreak. It is h
i who is building up the "new army'
t with the aid of Clerman and Japan
ese drill-masters. Tt is he who sue
ceeded in introducing the study o
modern science into the education o
the official classes, lie is committeto
the abolition of tho palace cunue
| system. He has, within the past fe\
P mouths, made great headway wit
his bold plan to remoe this land o
fossilized ideas into n constitutionr
monarchy, with a representative par
I liament. But first, and above a!
I else, he places the opium reforms. IJn
les this curse can be checked, and a
least partially removed, there is n
hove of progress,
i Throughout this magnificent strop
gle fo- a new CShina, Viceroy Yua
