China is dn absolute monarchy, but
the emperor spends his life inside the
sealed walls of the Forbidden City, and
not one Chinaman in a hundred thou
sand ever looks upon the imperial face.
Again, in spite of the absolute char
acter of the monarchy, there is, ac
cording to the Chinese law', a body
called the Tu-ch-a-yuen, or board of
•public censors, which is independent
of the supreme government and, theo
retically at least, higher in authority.
Theoretically, again, the supreme di
rection of the affairs of the empire is
vested In the Chun Chi Ch’u, other
wise known as the privy or grand
council. The practical administra
tion of the laws is under the charge
of the Nel-ko, or cabinet, a body which
consists of four members, two China
men and two Tartars, with the assist
ance of two members of the Great Col
lege of Confucius, whose duty It is to
see that nothing Is done by the cab
inet which is not in strict accordance
with the sacred books. Under the
cabinet, again, are seven boards of
administrators, each of which Is pre
sided over by a Chinaman and a Tartar
Jointly. These boards have the work
of government divided among them as
follows: 1. The board of civil ap
pointments, which lias charge of all
the civil officers in the empire. 2. The
board of revenues, which has charge of
all financial matters. 3. The board of
Tites and ceremonies, which has charge
of enforcing the laws and customs of
the empire. 4. The military board. 5.
The board of public works. 6. The
board of criminal jurisdiction. 7. The
admiralty board, which makes its head
quarters at Tien Tsln. Equal in au
thority with these Is the board of for
eign affairs, or Tsung-li-Yamen, which
treasurer, the subeommlssloner, and
the literary chancellor. Each province
U divided Into departments, ruled by
prefects, and each department into dis
tricts, with a district ruler over each.
Each town and village has also Its
separate government, with a complete
get of officials, so that the officeholding
class In Chlua is large and extremely
The gradations of rank among
Chinese officials are clearly defined,
and each man Is directly responsible
only to his Immediate superior. Thus
the village governor reports to the dis
trict ruler, and he In turn to the gov
ernor of the department. The de
partmental governor reports to the
governor general of the province, who
may remove him at will or even cut
of his head. The whole administra
tion. therefore, hinges on the eighteen
provincial governor generals, or vice
roys, and those positions are In the
greatest demand. A village official
who wishes to keep his place finds It a
good plan to make large gifts to the
district ruler, and therefore levies large
taxes on the people. The district rul
er finds it good policy to hand over
most of whnt he gets in this way to the
departmental chief, and the latter pass
es it on to the governor general of the
province. To be appointed governor
general of a Chinese province is there
fore equivalent to a gift of a large
fortune, the amount depending only on
the avarice of the viceroy In power. A
wise Chinaman greatly prefers to serve
his country as a provincial governor
general or viceroy than as member of
the grand or privy council, the 'per
quisites'' of which positions are small.
This form of administration makes It
clear why the body of Chinese officials

‘Prince Chin
Prince Thing, leader of the counter
revolution in North China, and poli
tical rival of the monstrous Prince Tu
nn, is now looked upon as the hope of
the foreigners in Peking, or of such of
them as have survived the atrocities of
tho Boxers. He is a great and pow
Y . '
erful prince, and seems to be a friend
of the whites. He is now in Peking at
the head of the Mauchu garrison in
that city. These forces number about
10,000, and numerous Chinese are flock
ing to the standard of the new leader.
Ching is the uncle of the late em
peror, Tsal-Tien, who was the poisoned
the other day by the order of Tuan.
He Is the greatuncle of the heir ap
parent, who was chosen last winter by
the empress dowager. He was presi
dent of the tsung-ll-yamen before the
government was sundered by the revolt
of Tuan and his followers.
A Trust Solution.
The manufacture of binding twine
by the inmates of the Kansas peni
tentiary, it is said, has been a success.
In Kansas, as in other states, the
trades unions were opposed to the em
ployment of the convicts in labor that
would come into competition with that
outside of the prison walls. Yet it
has as members all the members of the
grand or privy council.
As for the mysterious emperor, he
spends his life la the Forbidden City,
Into the central portion of which no
man may enter. There he lives, sur
rounded by the members of his harem
and by the enormous number of from
8,000 to 10,000 slaves. Massive wails
and the even more formidable barriers _
of Oriental etiquette shut him off en- ’
tlrely from the rest of the world. When
on rare occasions ho goes out to wor
ship at one of tlio temples or to visit
■one of the palaces In the vicinity the
streets along which lie and his retinue
will pass are cleared and freshly paved,
while the houses and other buildings
along the line are barricaded and the
fronts covered with huge mats, so that
no vulgar eye may look upon the great
lord of the sun as ho is carried along
In a magnificent solan chair. Only 1
