Empress Dowager Prevailed Upon to
Adopt Reactionary Course—Yuan
Shi Kai May Be Re
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

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

It has been rumored that this work
was undertaken not only to accom

with a view to going from that point
to fcfew York over the Erie. Canadian
