to the Palil Mall Gaeztte dated Deo. 17,
mays the situstiou has unit iniproved hy
representatives of the powers having
reached ai agrameinezit as the ~cope of
nogotiatious is linited and the effect
neutralized. The allies have neglected
to 'lose the arsenabs and facto
riem at Haukow and Shanghai and have
failed to check tOe traosmmiuom of snp
plies of ammunition of the Ohinese.
Tuug Fah Siang thus hs every oppor
nunity of rallying and equipping his
army. He has ecured the psition of
dictator. terroriases the emnpres and con
trols the whole movemeut of troops. It
