Yushlngton Aiij I0 A special
meeting of the cabinet lasting all day
hihI lirukcn up by a short iccess for
luncheon showed tlio Intense interest
tbo udinlnlstintlon feels In the Chi
liege situation It was the lougttst
cabinet meeting ol the present admin
Intuition The diplomatic and not the
uillitaiy phase of the situation in
China was under consideration ami
this accounted for the piesenco of
Acting Secietnry Adee an unusual
happening at a cabinet meeting
it is undei stood that the cabinet
completed ptepaiatlon of a plan tor
dealing away much of the uncertain
ly that now exists as to the future
In China and outlined Its views in
writing The fact that the military
situation is admitted to be ol second
ary importance conllrms the view that
what is sought is an agi cement among
the poweis lor terminating the status
of aftalrs in China It is believed that
the point has been reached whete it
Is pioper that tlieie should be a clear
expression of purpose on the part ol
the principal powers in older that the
United States government may know
bow far It may go consistently in the
execution of the common progiam
Most of the objects had in view by the
president when he made answer to the
Chinese governments appeal and be
gan the campaign upon Peking have
been achieved Two others remain
to be scented namely the safe-guarding
of American Intel osts and iiidem
uiticutlon for the operations and
losses of American citizens Some
plan by which the objects can be at
tained by the United States in com
mon with similar objects by the other
powois engaged in China is thought
feasible Incidental to this main pur
pose i uvciil phases of the piohlcm
are attracting special attention Thus
the hiiilluiency of Illlung Changs ere
deiitials as a peace envoy or i at her
of the ability of the emperor of China
to acrctfi ulb one thus is a matter
of international consideration It was
the general undei standing that the
outcome of yestei days cabinet meet
ing would be the outlining of a policy
by the administration that would tend
to bimplily these issues and at least
bring to a focus the vaiying asplii
tions of the powers If this cannot be
done the question to be detei mined is
whether or not the Tubed States shall
proceed further with
the allied forces
situation Simmii il Ip
One of the best posted members of
the diplomatic corps summed up the
international complications as follows
The powers were in complete ac
cold up to the time ot the taking ot
Peking but with that accomplished
the more impoitant question arose as
to the future course ot the powers ill
dealing with China and on that t Ileit
is not as yet any complete accord
Thus far Jt seems plain that the Unit
ed States opposes the dismemberment
of China or a move towards territorial
extension theje and In this position
Itussia and France seem to agree On
the other hand Germany Hi eat Hrlt
aln and possibly Japan are not averse
to a course which tvill bring about tei
ritorlal divisions within the empiio
It was supposed Japan stood against
a division of the empire but the laud
Jng of Japanese troops shows that
Japan Is at least making leady to be
in a position to sliaie in any division
of territory which must come The
coiiiki of Russia in taking New
Cliwanj can be viewed in the same
light as llie landing of tioops at Amoj
or Shanghai as this was for the sole
jnirpose of protecting Russias railway
line and any ulterior territorial pur
pones have been disclaimed by Kus
sla So far as Great Britains purpose
is concerned In the absence of any
expressed declaration the landing of
troops at Shanghai is strong evidence
that 3 1 eat Uritaln wishes to control
the Yang Tse valley which Is the gar
den of China On the part of Uer
mauy the doubt as to her future
couise Is due mainly to Count Walder
Bees speeches since the taking of Pe
king These have indicated that he
was going on nu extensive campaign
Itnd that the fall of the Chinese capita1
was only the initial step in a com
prehensive program requiring the
presence of a large army Just what
this means is not clear but it has at
least created much surprise In Wash
iugton and some other cupltals

supposed that the government was
pusillanimous in this respect Its only
object was to maintain HrltNh Inter

shaie of the white mans burden but
could not admit that the nature of Unit
burden should be dictated to It by the
yellow man

The manufacturers of Royal
Baking Powder have always declined
to produce a cheap baking powder
at the sacrifice of quality
The Royal is made from the
most highly refined and wholesome
ingredients and is the embodiment
of all the excellence possible to be
attained in the highest class baking
Royal Baking Powder costs only
a fair price and is cheaper at its
price than any similar article
Samples of mixtures made in imitation of baking
powders but containing alum are frequently dis
tributed from door to door or given away in
grocery stores Such mixtures are dangerous
to use in food and in many cities their sale is
prohibited by law Alum is corrosive poison and
nil plixsicians condemn baking powders containing it
