TO BEGIN AT ONCE Reports From China Point to Serious Commencement of Negotiations. Believed a Short Preliminary Protectorate Is Being Arranged INAUGURATE REAL PROGRESS Progressive Chinamen Wish to Overthrow Reactionary Methods Want an Heir Apparent Who Is Not Connected With the Tuan Party LONDON, Dec. 12.-"Reports from Chinese sources," says the Shanghai correspondent of The Times, wiring Monday. "point to the probability that serious negotiations for peace will be gin forthwith. It is believed that a 4 short preliminary protectorate is in process of arranging, leaving many questions, including commercial sub. 4 jects, tc separate conventions to be drawn up later. The powers will re tain their troops in China until the .e gotiations are settled and until tangible evidence is given that China honestly 4 intends to fulfill her engagements. Pro. 4 pressive Chinamen regard the present as a good opportunity to overthrow the reactionary Manchurian methods and to inaugurate a regime of real prog. ress. * "It is urged that the powers shall in sist upon the cancellation of the claim of the present heir apparent, Prince Tuan's son, r-il the substitution of an heir of full agR free from any connec tion with the Tuan party. Such a man is available and the step is declared to be .legallp possible." CHINA ON HER' KN;EF$. Brigadier Genesti Wilson Speaks of the tittition There. WASHIaroTN, Dec. 12.-Brigadier General James H. Wilson ha. arrived in Washington direct from Peking and called at the war department and paid' his respects to the officials. Speaking of the Chinese situation, he said: "China absolutely is prostrate. The report that she contemplates making a counter claim for indemnity on ac count of the punitive expeditions may be true but I have no reason to believe that any attention will be paid to it. China has nothing to say in the matter. She is on her knees and must accept the terms the powers decide to impose. The punitive expeditions are unneces sary and the American troops did not participate in them. Their effect was to create bad blood." NO DECISION REACHED.
