LI HUNll CHANd'S MISTAKE. He Honors the Emperor's Mother First and It Coats Him a Year's Salary. Washington, L. O , November 17 Since tbe announcement by cable tbat an imperial edict bad been issued mulcting Li Hung Chang in one year's salary for presuming to enter tbe pre cinots of tbe "ruined summer palace," while visiting tbe Empress Dowager, there have been numerous inquiries of members of tbe Chinese legation con cerning tbe ex lot nature of the offence and tbe reasons for tbe sanctity with which the palaoe seems to be surround ed. It is only to-day, however, that these efforts have proved successful. It transpires tbat tbe "ruined palace," at least so . far as it relates to Li, is a pleasurable fiction.' The facts are that there are two factions in the Chinese curt, one beaded by the emperor's advisers and the other by the empress dowager, his adopted mother. Li Hung Chang, upon his arrival atPekin, is understood to have paid his respects to the ex-empress before making obei- anoe to tbe emperor. Inis was re garded both as a serious breach of official etiquette and as an indication of bis intention to bring tbe Influence oi tbe empress dowager to bear upon the imperial policy. Hence tbe condem nation of tbe venerable statesman in the self-same proclamation that named him as minister for foreign affairs. New California Postmasters. Washington, D. C, November 17.
