I;HINA'$ REVOLUTION liGVERNMENTRECALLSFORMER COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF TO AID AND ADVISE. Yuan Shi Kai Appointed Viceroy of Disaffected Provinces-May Refuse Chinese Need Money to Pay Soldiers, Who Are Deserting to Rebel Side Railroad Stops Building. The recall of Yuan Shi Kai, formerly grand conductor and commander-in chief of the army and navy, who was banished from the capital some years ago, and his appointment as viceroy of Hu Peh and Hunan provinces indi cate the plight of the Manchu adminis tration. Administratively speaking, Yuan Shi Kai is their last and best card. He is known as a strong man, and it was he who first organized the northern modern army. It is believed he is the only man around whom the troops will rally, but it is uncertain whether he will accept the appointment. Runs on the government and other Chinese banks have resulted in heavy transfers to foreign banks. The Chi nese goveramnt is endeavoring to nego tiate emergency loans for military pur poses and to pay the thousands of troops. Prospects for heavy loans were submitted today to banking groups of four nations, but it is not likely that these will be accepted. The construction of the Hu Kwang railway, as well as the conclusion of the currency reform program,. will be retarded indefinitely. The diplomatic corps had a long con ference regarding a possible attack at Wa Chang. It was decided, however, l that it would be unfair. to interfere, and therefore Sir John N. Jordan vis ited the Chinese foreign board and sug gested only an avoidance of shelling the foreign concessions. Spreads in All the Provinces. San Francisco.-Cable advices from Shanghai to the local Chinese daily paper, Chung Sai Yat Po, state that the revolution has now spread through every province of China, that large I numbers of troops of the imperial army are going over to the rebels and that . many important cities have been cap- $ tured by the revolutionary forces. c Chinese Dying By Thousands. News was brought to Victoria, 13. C ., t by the Empress of Japan, Monday, that I thousands were dying of starvation in Klangsu, along the Yangtse river, fol lowing the floods, and the situation was expected to result in a great aug- 4 mentation of the rebellious outbreak wlsieh began in Sze Chuen and has since spread to other provinces. Ref ugees paint a black picture of dire dis tress. Put briefly, the whole country is un der water, the Yangtsc has raised to such an extent that it is now prac tically bounded only by the ranges of the hills which rise some distance from $ the banks, corpses are floating every- 1 where, and famine-stricken refugees are 1 dying from disease. Ii places the Yangtse is 35 miles broad, and floating bodies are seen in 8 numbers, while starving dogs were 7 seen feeding upon bodies. The Chinese government has placed c severe restrictions on telegraph lines, evidently for the purpose of preventing si communication between the rebels. si CHICAGO SUNDAY EVENING CLUB This New Christian Institution Arous ing Nation Wide Interest Everywhere.
