.lion dollars in: round. numbers has been
offered by . the ' * Chhie? e' Govern
ment for • the "surrender of \u25a0 ;the
concession for 'building the..Canton-
Harikbw Railroad, now held, by J/P.
Morgan & Co. and American and Bel
gian associates. It now remains for
the directors of the China- American
Development Company, in which Mo'rr
gan has a controlling interest, to act
upon the matter at a.meeting to be held
in New Tork early in July. .. . . :
China gave the concession to :. the
American. company in 1897. Only twen
ty-two miles of the railroad have been
built. China complains that the meth
ods of the company have caused , the
Chinese to lose faith in this -particular
enterprise. China has paid to the com
pany several millions of dollars in Chi
nese Government bonds at 90. A por
tion of these bonds were, sold; by the
company, but the majority are now held
by .Morgaji. and his associates. ', If the
deal is closed these bonds wilube de
livered to'the- Chinese Government. It
Is thought not improbable that the Bel

may be- loth to" surrender- the conces

Fion in the clubs and cafes, anost of the
people not being aware that anything
unusual is occurring in Poland.. , {
V»'hen the details, become known, it
may be expected that the news will
create the deepest impression in all in
dustrial sections of Russia anil-bring
about disorders which v.-ould be par
ticularly unfortunate, coining just at
this juncture, when the Government is
bending every effort to induce the peo
ple to be patient and to wait the issu
ance of a ukase announcing:. the convo
catien of a . national assembly, the
proclamation regarding which cannot
be long delayed. The date for the con
vocation was some time ago tentatively
fixed for June 2S. but the final revision
of the project is taking logger than had
been expected and the ukase probably
will have to be postponed.
In Poland itself, .the c.vents at Lodz
nay initiate an era o/ open resistance
to the troops, lasting for. months. Be
rides Lodz. Warsaw, Kalish. Petrakovk
end other manufacturing centers have
been on the verge of anarchy for sev
eral months and disturbances similar
to those at Lodz, on a greater or
smaller scale, are to be feared wherever
end. whenever military conditions give
.tlie slightest encouragement
ET. PETERSBURG. June 26.— Beyond
the bare announcement that firing was
egain heard on Saturday night in the
Jewish quarter at Lodz and that the
Jews were leaving the city in .great
number?, almost nothing is known
about the situation in Lodz and the de
v«>!opm#nts of Saturday and Sunday.
Even en adequate estimate of the mag
nitude of Friday's fierce struggle- in
the streets and the extent of the cas
ualjties cannot be obtained here, as
practically all telegrams except brief
and urtsatiffeetory rnefsages to the
agencies are held up by the" Internal
censorship. The newspapers "are with
out information' and General TrepofTs
adjutant said that the Chancellorie of
Police had nothing to communicate.
