The State Department officials do not hesitate to give a fiat denial to the story from Home to the effect that the United States has suggested to the powers tli? restoration of the young Emperor of China, with LI Hung Chang as his adviser. The United States Govemmeu has made no suggestion whatever" to tbe powers respecting the restoration of the Emperor; nor has it even discussed measures for the future government of China.
