The "open door" In China that now lists an thn result of the repudiation of the fix Power loan by the United fitates In regarded by friends of the Knox policy In the Par Earn as being the open door to Its partition. The United States they regard aa the key stone of the arch of Powers that held up the structure of China aa an Inde pendent and undivided nation. The four nations, Russia and Japan as the prime movers and the prime en , emles of China, holding the whip hand; England and France as their more con- aervatlve but voluntarily helpless allies. are considered the dominators of China's future. Germany by sufferance of the 1 others may be admitted to the consor tium of control and selfish advantage. TMs Is the outlook aa those who have been friends of the six Power loan proj ' ect eee It: The lopping oft from CUna of Ms great outlying possessions, Manchuria. Mon aclla and Tibet, almost Immediately. A financial and political protectorate over China proper, presided over by Eng land.

Intervention In Chtna, territorial as wall as financial control by the four Powers, Is not thi Impossible thing It may seem In New Tork. Japan and Russia are widely accused In Europe rf planning it for the sections of China they are most Interested In. Japan was ager, according to the best authorities, to march an array corps into north China from Manchuria last year to hold the Manchu dynasty on the throne against the republicans a the tool of the Powers. She pro posed this action to her allies. Great Rrttsln would not let her Just then. America was the direct and In B'rect Influence among the nations nnfflrned in China for the con t'nusnce of a policy of friendly pro tection of China's Independence. This trovernment In the Chinese loan was a potent force for the uplift of the Chinese nation, for the maintenance of lis overegnty and the development of 1'ji rcjources for Its own good.

A Chinese Minister practically sold Manchuria to Russia for a bribe. Vested rights of the foreign nations appeared In China, silently established themselves and were not to be removed. The collapse of China In the Japanese Chinese war renewed the aggressiveness of the Powers. A German missionary was killed In Shantung and Germany seized the port of Klaodhow and got control of the province. Itussia, looking with Jealous eyes, demanded and got Port Arthur. Britain quickly seized Wel-hal-wel, In the north. Britain wan meanwhile en trenching her commercial Interests strongly In the YangMe Valley. France wns strengthening her Influence In the southern Kuang provinces. 15ven little Italy demanded a port, but China, with the rising tide of the Boxer Independ ence, refused. The Boxer trouble of 100 flared up, and with Its end came the reaffirmation of the Hay policy of the "open door." But the closing of the door wa In sidiously going on. It was done through the combination of Governement au thority linked with private finance, the evil effects of which were to be com bated later by the formation of the six Power group using similar tools. Gorernsaenta Sent Hankers. Governments, wishing to establish themselves firmly in a section an a sphere "of Influence, sent In their bank ers. Financially the loans were- bene ficial In a double sense to the bankers In the loan Itself and In the purchase of railroad materials nnd services from tho nation's shops. The real purpot-e of these loans and railroad work, how ever, was not finance, but lerrltory. The financial return, however, was a most profitable and safe one. Kngland. for Instance, lent for the building of the North China Itnllroad from Pekln to Tientsin. It Is highly profitable. It 1s the property of th Chinese Gov ernment, but KngUsh engineers built It, English materials were bought for 1U Kngllshmen operate It. and England had nt one time the territorial ad vantage over the country It ran through. France lent the money for the building of the road from Pekln to the great central commercial city, Han. kow. French labor anil engineering and materials built the road and until recently Frenchmen ran It. The door of equally open commercial advantage to all countries had rapidly become a Mellon through 'besn ar rangements wherebv the country that lent the money got the trade nnd the territorial advantage. It was flagrantly and blatantly so with Japan and Russia in Manchuria, There two nation? re sented the entrance of any other na tion commercially or otherwise, into Mandhurla. The anomaly of th ro-called "open door" and the Intorerable situation created by the closing of Manchuria by Russia and Japan presented Itself for cibly to Secretary Root and President Roosevelt In 1P07. Russia and Japan In their domination of Manchuria must be held back. Ilallraad Wmm Prnoe6, The means devised was the proposal to build a railroad, the Shlnmcntun Tsltslhar project, through Manchuria pnraltellng the Japanese nnd Russian line to the Siberian border. In order to counteract the Rui-so-Japanese In fluence with n healthy American, Brit ish and Chinese lnlluence. Chinese col onization of Manchuria, the other great counteracting Influence, was to busily promoted. A Manchurlan bank was to be established by the Chinese Tons Shao VI, a Columbia I'nlverslty man and Viceroy of Manchuria, came to the I'nlted States to raise a loan of $300,000,000 for reform of the cur rency and for Manchurlan development. The project fulled. The Knox mani festo, Issued In 1909, proposing that the Powers unite to buy the Japanese and Russian railroads In Manchuria, also failed. The measures were too obviously Irrltntlng to the sore pot. Japan nnd Russia bristled. They saw their great neso possessions menaced nnd in anx ious haste they quickly formed an al liance In 1910 to safeguard each other In Mutichtil'ln.

As he. stepped down his eyeis met one of the mural paintings and he halted. In Ms seat ai-aln he leaned over and called tlie attention of one of his fellows to the panel. Both laughed covertly. Questioned a.s to the humorous ele ment of the painting, which represents u nymph In thin and flowing drapery foreign public In buying the bonds. The bucking of foreign Governments Is essential as a guarantee ot the effec tiveness of the auditing and supervision of the loan administration. The administration of public finance in China ts notoriously dishonest, hap hazard and corrupting. China has no department of government that has ever spent money without the most flagrant grafting, with the one exception of the Imperial Maritime Customs, where hon esty is secured by foreign control. The dishonesty of the Chinese Government official Is ns dark as the honor of the Chinese merchant is uncorrupted and unstained. Graft In official life In China has come to tie recognized by the people as the natuiul course of official life und the system of emolument of Its officers. The new republic may try to make some Inroads upon It. But it can only scratch the surface In any effort to eradicate It. The work of centuries In lngralnlng this evil cannot be undone In a day or a decade. nianple of Grafting. The TIentstn-Pukow Railroad, from ientsln to Nankin, now practically completed, Is the most flagrant exam ple of Chinese official grafting. The Chinese Government In the building of this road was the executive and respon sible head. The German and Brttlsli bankers concerned In tho lonn for the building took their hands off the admin istration, basing their security for the loan on tho earnings of the road from certain provlnclol taxes. German and British engineers and materials built the road. The cost of building It under Chinese direction got to be an enormity. It mounted far above the original estimates, and llnnlly for lick of further funds work on tho road came to a full stop. The Chinese Oirector-General and a number of his assistants were degraded. The personal graft ran Into several hundred of thousands of taels. The result to the line in operation Is that tho loan service will constitute a heavy har?e on its revenues. If It were not for the unusual prosperity of Chinese railroads bankruptcy would be Inevit able because of the graft. Small official grafting on Mg revenue producing norks, such as a railroad, Is heavy in China under the closest of supervision conducted even by foreign ers. The well run and highly profitable Imperial Railways of north China, the earliest nnd best run line In the nation, Is under British operation. But graft ing on the revenues of the road Is a heavy charge. A station master along the linn holds up n car sidetracks It, until tho merchJiit delivers the bribe price.

Would not tho greatest hankers in the world bo almost criminally culpable to offer to their national Investing public u, loan bused on tottering Insecurity of this sort? Can other security short of ubsoliito foreign government assurance that Chinese llnnncn will bo properly and honestly administered avail? Theso are questions that will be an swered by thoso thoroughly familiar with the Chinese only In the one way. Reorganization of China's finances ex cept under a consortium of tho Powers most Interested In China, nnd under an Inclusive agreement where the con servatives, carry the power to restrain the RuhhIiiiis nnd Japanese and those who wuuld cut und slash thu Chinese nation, Is Impossible.

In fact It was almost exactly a counterpart of the Idea on which the splendid Imperial Maritime Customs was founded and built up to the magnificent and efficient service It Is to-day by Sir Robert Hart.

The most Instant and hard felt ef fect of the abandonment of the six Power loan by the United States nnd Its bankers will be tho loss of American commerce and business In China, ac cording to the views of persons Inti mately acquainted with far Eastern conditions. Railroad and public util ity building concessions, all to come from the Chlneso Government, will go to those who loan China money. En gineers, steel rails, locomotives, railroad equipment, steel products, manufactured goods, electrical supplies will come from thoso nations whoso bankers lend Chtna money. America's biggest bankers will not lend money under the Insufficient guar antee of China alone. Other bankers cannot loan In great amounts. If they should it would only exclto Russia and Japan to prompt retaliation. Without American loans American commerce will be. It Is feared, nt sad disadvantage.

The Pennsylvania Railroad is the short line between New York and Chicago. To the traveler this means comfort. He has only the minimum distance to cover it in the minimum time at a" comparatively low speed. The distance from New York to Chicago over the Pennsylvania Railroad is 909 miles. The "Broadway Limited" makes the run at an average of 45 miles an hour a very comfortable speed. The speed of the Day Express of the Northern Railway from Berlin to Paris is 62 miles an hour. Comfort of travel on the 31 S eTM- i" roaaoea. xne ties are tnorougniy imbedded, in broken rock, and the heavy rails are so evenly laid that they form perfect lines of continuous steel. O.ver this model track the heavy steel cars roll smoothly with an easy, restful motion. A good roadway, you know, is the. difference between comfort and discomfort. The Pennsylvania's natural short line enables it to provide a most comfortable over-night service between New York and Chicago. The "Broadway Limited" leaves New York (Pennsylvania Station and Hudson Terminal) at 2.45 P. M. to-day and arrives Chicago 9.45 to-morrow morning. The equipment and appointments of this train are complete; it is a veritable hotel or club on the rails, and the night can be passed as pleasantly and comfortably en route as on Manhattan Island.

BELMONT FOR BRIDGE AT 59TH ST. Would Make a Continuous Roadway From New Jer sey to Long Island. Mrs. Oliver H. P. Belmont, who be sides being president of tho Political Equality Afpoclntlon Is Interested In everything thnt pertains to civic well being, has come forward with a sur gcstlon In regard to the location of the proposed Interstato bridge to connect Now Tork nnd New Jersey. She thinks that tho recommendation of the IlrldKO Commission to locate the Manhattan end of tho structure at Fifty-seventh street could be Improved upon. Her Idea Is to hnvo the terminal lit I'lfty-nlnth street nnd then to con vert that thoroughfare Into n beautiful wide nvenue, making a continuous road from New Jersey through Manhattan to cover, and he can Pennsylvania is also greatly .1 . , . . . - . Long Island. Her views nre expressed In the following letter to The Svn: "According to recent press reports, a decision was reached at the reunion of the New York and New Jersey Inter state Hrlilso Commission to recommend tho building of a bridge across the Hud son Itlver nt Fifty-Sfventh street. "Inasmuch as there is nt present a bridge spanning the Kast Itlver at Fifty ninth street, connecting Manhattan with Long Island, I strongly urge the advis ability of building the new Hudson Itlver bridge nt the west end of Fifty-ninth street nnd not nt Fifty-seventh streot, thus making a direct nnd continuous road from New Jersey to Ixng Island through Manhattan. "Fifty-ninth street, from river to river, from bridge to hrldge, could be converted Into a beautiful, wide avenue, lined with trees, with the possibility of n parkway nnd an uninterrupted vlstn. The expense to the city would be small In compari son with the result accomplished, "Should the Fifty-seventh street site be decided Uoii I believe It will prove a bitter disappointment to the city when too Into to remedy the error; nnd I er nestly hope all loyal citizens will use their Induenco with the members of the com mission to reconsider their decision In time to prevent n blunder of this kind. "In going about Manhattan one is conetnntly confronted with results of mu nicipal mismanagement, notably nlqng Fifth avenue and Itlvcrsldo Drive, where the present day expense of tearing out the fronts of business buildings nnd prlvnte EdnaTbrW's plucky little heroine, Emma MTChesnes? again makes good in the American Magazine for April; good for Emma good fox Edna--fipod for you mma sir a i mx iiwa promoted by its excellent residences might have been avoided were it not for the short sighted methods pur sued by city authorities only a few years ago.
