Washington. D. C, March 2. Should
president Tuan Shi Kal and the rebel
Chinese governors who have demanded
his immediate retirement fail to come
to terms, officials here believe the re
sult would be a long and destructive
ei il war in China. It is knowp that
Yuan has provided himself ivltli a nu
merous and formidable array; according
to Chinese standards, which would
probably be lojal to him so long as he
was willing to draw upon nis large
sources of revenue for their pay..
Yuan 11a Ketlre.
Neither the state department nor the
Chinese legation has received any of
ficial advices concerning the events In
Pekln since Yuan's mandate renounc
ing the throne. Press reports from
Shanghai that Tang Shao Yi, the first
premier of the republic had urged the
president to relinquish his office to vice
president Li Yuen Heng, have been
read with interest, however, and some
officials think Yuan will be Inclined to
heed advice from such a source.
Though Tang was driven out of the
Chinese ministry as a consequence of
the resentment of the European powers
of his conclusion secretly of a loan with
a private banking bouse while negoti
ations were pending for an interna
tional six power group loan, his close
personal relations with Yuan were un
impaired. 1.1 Yuen Stronir Republican.
Tang has been a consistent republi
can and the same is true of Li Yuen
Heng, the vice president, who became
seriously embroiled with Yuan through
his cooperation with the radical ele
ments which resisted the monarchial
idea in its Inciplency.
The wife of Dr. Wellington Koo. the
Chinese minister here, is the daughter
of Li Yuen Heng. but It is said that this
connection counts for little in China.

swered: 'Yes, vou may bo to see May
Hobson any time, for when jou see her
billed for a performance, you can be
certain that it is one that will not make
a young girl blush.' Since that, I have
heard many such remarks from moth

to make them all real. I tr to put them
before the public as the characters live

You can introduce sentiment into a

into the blues. While you may tug at
the heartstrings once In a while, you

peals just a few tiny tears: lust
