Peking, Jan 3.?Confidence continues to
revive among the adherents of the impe?
rial court. The Chinese nation Is very
easily encouraged or discouraged, owing
to its trait of timidity. Nowhere else la

notification that the Peking government
would in future carry on negotiations by

publicans object to negotiating telegraph
The ImpsriHl delegates who have returned
here from Shanghai state that a reign of
terror prevails In that city. Nobody dares
to venture an opinion In favor of a consti?
tutional monarchy.
In quarters clouiely connected with the
Imperial government It Is believed that the
Important provinces of Hu-Peh and 11 u

at Shanghai. The hope exists In these quar?

To Attack Chinsse Mutineers.
The imperial government troops sta?

of the Province of Chl-ll, on the Gulf of
liao-Tang, who number about four thou?
sand, have notified the foreign legations
?n Peking that they desire the formation
of a republic They are acting in co-opera?

stationed at Lan-Chau. who were yester?

Intention of marching on Peking
Three thousand Manchu Imperial troops
have been ordered to Chin Wang-tao to
sttack the Chinese mutineers there and at
I.sn Chau if they do not submit. Thsss
troops have been drawn from the garrisons
? i Pao Ttng-fu and Stilh Kla-chwang.
I>aii ?'hau and Chin Wang-tao are ?he
?wo principal military centres outside
Peking Itself. The Imperial -roops sta
?h?red at these two points are divided into
ivvo categories. Manchu and Chinese, and
It Is only the Chinese soldiers who have
become rebellions. Their action in declar?
ing for a republic has caused, however,
considerable anxiety to the court.
The complications brought about by ?he

handing over $2,000,0?X? from her Bflv?tS
treasury to Premier Yuan, relied on these
troops to march together with the Man

south and to crush the rehelllon.
The position now Is that the Premier, a
( hinese. and the Man.hu commanders, with
Menchu troops, are supporting the court
and the Manchu princes against trained
Chinese troops in the north and ?epuhllcans

Tang Shao-yl would say for publication
after the announcement of his resignation
as a representative of Treniler Yuan to the
peace conterenc?-.
Tang Shao-yl appears to be much affe? t

bsMsasi that peace was assured and that
there would be no further bloodshed. It Is
feared now that a continuation of the peace
conference Ih impossible, as the telegraph
is an unsatisfactory means of negotiating.
and certain Republicans will never consent
to hold the conference In Peking.
Yuan Shth-kai's lardy repudiation <>f his
plenipotentiary, Tang Shao-yi, Is almost
unanimously denounced in Shanghai and
Nanking. It has not been settled what
form, If any. the future negotiations will
take. This depends entirely upon President

The revrlutltmaiies assert that they ha\e
faithfully kept the terms of the armlsti?*e
as far as It has been p?senle to control
their adherents, and they will continue to
do so. But unless Yuan changes his pres?

ropeans In regard t?> the Mahometan and
Italy's Indefensible seizure <>f Tripoli. The
war In Turkey, says M I.oti. is a manifes?
tation of this mockery of modern civiliza?
tion which looks on tranquilly at massacre,
at war and at the spilling of innocent blood.
The writer compares certain of the BUTO*

stomachs with the remains of the m?.imc?l
and dying Turkey. He declares ?hat tho
time has arrived for the Chrlailan world
to cease from human ?butchery, for, he says,
the Chrtstluns are the greatest assassins of
all, killing with words of fraternity on their

M. Loti concludes: "Wars of conquest,

derisive and a shame to humanity."

Expert Tells of Running Down
Upper West Side Epidemic.
Owner of Dairy Found To Be a
Walking Culture Plant for
Germs, but Didn't Know It.
How one farmer in the northern part
of New fork State was innocently re?
sponsible for an epidemic of typhoid fever
on the upper Weat Side of this city In
February, 1910. Is told in the current issue
of "The New Vork Medical .Tournai." Tu
s paper submitted '?y Dr. Charles !?'.
Belduan, acting assistant to the general
medical officer In the Department of
Health in this city, and Or. \V. Carey
Noble, bacteriologist of the same depart?
ment, the course of the ?llsease through
remote and divernlflerl cbannel? is IrtCtd
with great detail.
When nine cases of typhoid fever were
renorteil to the Department of Health In
February, 1910. between West 122d and
Weat tilth street In a ?ingle day the at?
tention of Dr. Rolduan and Dr. Noble WSS
attracted. The following day six addi?
tional cases were reported, the number
being increased daily until the total
reached forty-four. The physicians began
a careful Investigation, trying to trace
the epidemic to its source.
Hy a process of elimination it was found
that the city's water supply was not re
?pOMlble for the outbreak. It then be
came a iiuestlon of Unding where the af?
flicted families bought their milk supply.
One of the large milk companies, it waa
found, supplied each family In Which the
disease had shov,n itself. Thla company
received all its milk from the northern
part of Host York, near Lake champlain.
and the adjacent part of Vermont. All this
milk was bottled lu the ?ountry and was
the raw prodttOt.
Acting under the orders of Dr. Bolduan
and I>! Noble, Inspectors w< re ordered by
telegraph to Invest?gate al! the pla?es
which had supplied milk to the Infected
district during January. In one district
six rases of typhoid were found These
?ases had appeared almost simultaneously
with the outbreak In this clt\.
After It had bc.-n ?leflnltely established
?hat thla plant was responsible for the epl
'lenilc In thjs city order? were Issued pro?
hibiting forth r shipment? from that
creumery. The j>Unt itself wan carefully
Inspected and all the employes Interrogated
In their homes. Bach of the forty-five
dairies supplying ?he creamery was visited
and examined as a possible source of
typhoid infeition. Blood tests were ,,i?<>
made, finally resulting In the finding of
a dairy farmer who gave a hlatory of ?lx
cases of typhoid on his farm In l^. one
< i?e In |ttl and one 1n inos.
Uy tcs's It WB* found ?hat this dairv
man carped enormous numbers of living
bacilli. In ofber words, the man was a
"bacillus ?:trrler " When this fact had
beep settled beyond doubt the order exclud?
ing the milk was modified to apply only
to milk from ?hie one dairy, and regular
shipment? fVOm ?h? creamery .ver* re?
sumed No mire cas?>s of ?ypriold or.

Roth Ch ?Junan Will.ox and Borough
l'r?-sldent M?-Anony .sal?l Ht U_B that there
was nothing to in?licate any agreement,
but they would keep at it until 1 a. m
It Is understood that the great dispute
between the city and the Interborough now
Is as to ?ho size of the "preferential" pay?
ment. The Interborough demanded last
July a guarantee of i> per cent flat. Since
then It has signified its willingness to have
a lump sum guaranteed as a "preferen?
tial." The place where the hljch Is coming
Is on th" size of this "preferential," The
Interborough, it is said. Is demanding that
the "preferential" shall be ha.?e?l on the
prolits of the present subway for the last
year, ?'ontroller Prendergast and Borough
President McAneny, for the city, on the
other hand, hold that this would Le too
large an amount, as the earnings of the
subway have been tncreaMng tremendously
from year to >var. Tiny hold that an av?
erage of the profits for the last three or
four year? would be more just. There is
BOOM i'uestion of a compromise on two
years, it is understo?'<l, without either side
having agreed to accept such a compro?
Another point ihat the city's representa?
tives are holding out against is the Inter,
borough's dornend that the "preferential"
shall come out of net earnings before the
Intercut and sinking fund charges are paid.

with Colonel Wllllami. president of the
Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company. The
latter company 1? getting restlv? over ti'?
dilatory policy adopted In attempting to
persuade ?he Interborough to come ba< k
Into the situation. Colonel Williams hold*
that the city in good faith approved the
plan of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Com?
pany after the Interborough had with?
drawn, and that he sees no reason why
that pian should not he carried out. He
wants the operating contracts pushed
along, so that they can come up for exe?
cution speedily.

vania, was detained, but ?tvas represented
by Mr. ?'ounty, his as?ls?Hnt, who Is thor?
oughly familiar with the entire situation.
The scheme ?hat is now being discussed
is for the Interborough to pool th? finances
of the present subway v.Uli ?hose of the
propos? d system. In such a pooling
there would be the ?W.W.CKW invested in
the present subway snd the r?.W.?*** the

The Interborough would have to get 4

snd I per cent interest and 1 tier cent sink?
ing ftind. It is estimated, on th* money in?
vested in the new lines. The city would
