China Mu.t I More Than Merely I.
grade u,a offending- Viceroy.
Lonoom, Oct. 3. It is understood in
ofticial circles hero that the degrada
tion of the viceroy by no means settles
the matters in dispute between Great
Jlritain and China, and that the action
of China does not effect the possible
claims for indemnities and tho de
mands for reforms made by Great
I'rof. II. L. K. Dongluss has written
a letter to the Times, in which he says
that Viceroy Liu 1'ing Chang was de
graded last November, and it is now
thought that the recent action of the
Chinese government is nothing more
than a trick to deceive Great Uritain.
