; London, Sept 19. The truth
about the present internal trouble
in China, the rebellion against
President Yuan Shi Kai, is leak
ing out.
Yuan Shi Kai, when first elect
ed, was backed by J. Pierpont
'Morgan in return for big conces
sions Yuan promised Morgan.
This peeved the Standard Oil
Co., which had put up a lot of
money for Sun Yat Sen's revolu
tion, in return for -promises of
similar big concessions, exceed
ingly. When Sun. Yat Sen was pro
visional president of China, Roy
'Anderson, a Standard Oil agent,
was the whole cheese.
As soon as Yuan had his gov
ernment running he began to
need money. He applied to the
Morgan crowd.
The Morgan outfit said sure
fhey'd loan him money at about
12 per cent, and on condition
China's taxing machinery was
handed ove'r' to them.

Yuan was afraid to put it oven

to their terms in the end.
But the Standard Oil outfit
was busy. They still had a good
grip on Sun Yat Sen, and they
stirred hyn up and sent him to
Pekin to tell Yuan he could get a
little cash at easy rates from the
Standard Oil people if he'd
grant them big oil concessions.
There was a lot of big war
talk, and then Yuan came
through. He borrowed $50,000,
000 from A. Wendell Jackson, an
American, now practically identi
fied with Standard Oil, and the
Morgan influence began to wane.
Evidently the Morgan and
Standard Oil crowds are bent on
splitting up China between them,
and if they quarrel over the di
vision of the loot China may find
itself with a civil war on its hands
a civil war between Standard
Oil and Morgan.
