WILL NOT ABDICATE YET Empress Dowager Prevailed Upon to Adopt Reactionary Course—Yuan Shi Kai May Be Re placed. JPelcin, Jan. 24.—Premier Yuan Shi Kai's efforts to bring about the abdi cation' of the throne have faded, and the situation in China has entered a new and perplexing phase. Prince Ching, the ex-premier Prince Pu-Lun, ex-president of the national assembly, and Prince Tsai Sun, tyrother of -the ex-regent, absented themselves from the conference of princes of the im perial- clan, which left the decision as to abdication to the reactionaries who have been strengthening their hand steadily since, the premier permitted the probability of abdicating to be come known. Curiously enough the princes of in ner Mongolia, whom the Manchus con sider inferior to themselves, rallied to the aid of the .Manchus. At a previ ous meeting one of the Mongols strongly controverted Prince Ching's argument that the imperial armies were unable to oppose the rebels. Ap parently preparations were complete for a provisional government an ab dication edict had even been drafted, but the announcement that such a course was .contemplated, which had een allowed to become public with the evident object of preparing the Manchu troops asainst the shock, in spired clansmen of all degrees to re sist. The empress dowager, being reluc tant to abdicate, has accepted the ad vice of the reactionary princes. The matter of appointing Yin Tchang, the ex-war minister, or Tieh-Liang, former Tartar general at Nanking, to replace Yuan Shi Kai, was discussed, but the argument prevailed that the nineteen nrticles of the constitution promulgat ed by the national assembly last No vember should be observed.

Howard Elliott Also Addreeses Trl* State Qraln Growers' Meet Ing at Fargo. (7i Fargo. The largest audience^ that ever attended a tri-state grain growers' convention packed the Fargo opera house. More than 2,000 farmers and agriculturists gathered to hear J. H. Worst, president of the North Dakota Agricultural college, and Howard Elliott, president of the Northern Pacific Railway. President Worst's address was prophecy of rural conditions in 1920 when he said ?150-an-acre clubs will be formed, land will yield 50 per cent more thaft now, consolidated schools will be the order of the day, and roads will be improved considerably. Howard Elliott spoke on t,he rela tion of railroads to farming. He gave. President H. Wurst. history of agriculture in the United States and told of the establishment cf the first agricultural college in Michigan in 1850 and of the "land grant" bill introduced in 1862. "Henry VII. of England passed a statute in 1488 to prevent the acquisi tion of large land holdings, in order to prevent land formerly tilled from a century later the English law shows a quaint statute providing a penalty to be imposed on all who kept more than 2,000 sheep. This trust-busting attempt apparently did not work, for in 1597, it was necessary to enact a new statute." President Elliott predicted a won rlerful growth for Minnesota and tho :\vo Dako:au in the next 10 yeart. "To build greater and more pro dii rive ag --.'.tural state is your task vr the demands of the next generation cannot be met," said he.

The lat ter application is in connection with the acquisition of the Iowa Central. The $6,000,00Q Chicago Terminal first mortgage 4 per cent bonds were issued by a subsidiary of the Soo line organized to acquire property and con struct terminals in the city of Chi cago. It is learned that about 70 per cent of the land has been acquired, which it is supposed was secured for ter minal uses. The construction of ter minal stations was begun six or eight months ago and will probably take several months more to complete. It has been rumored that this work was undertaken not only to accom modate the Soo line in Chicago, but with a view to going from that point to fcfew York over the Erie.

Says It Is Not Purpose of Company "to Gobble World's Export ... Trade." Washington, Jan. 24 Emphatic de nial that the United States Steel Coj_ poration is a monopoly as charged was made to the Stanley investigating committee of the house by President J. J. Farrell. He declared that it was not the purpose of the corporation "to gobble the expert trade of the world at any cost." "A monopoly of the iron and steel trade, in this country," said Mr. Far4 rell, "is neither possible nor desir able. There iB no monopoly or any* thing approaching it. Since the steel corporation was organized there has been much new capital attracted to the industry and many furnaceB have been built which are not controlled by, the steel corporation. "It is charged that the corporation Is seeking to drive other countries out. of the export market. That is. far from the truth. "The British steel industry must ex port 40 per cent of the product a year in order to live. Germany must ex port 50 per cent and Belgium 80 per cent. The product of the United States is greater than England, Gen many and Belgium combined, and thq domestic consumption is so much greater that export trade is not SQ' vital." Boy Draws Death Straw.
