The Eee.) The conferences on the
institution continue and are still cegerly
discussed outside. All Indications point to
a sharp dlveion between the party of mod
erate progress, represented by the Viceroy
Yuan hhih-kal and tho conservative elder
statesmen, many of whom are Manchus,
whose prerogatives arc threatened. The
situation la full of interest because ofr" the
position of, the Viceroy Yuan Shlh-kal, who
controls trio only effective army, and who.
wielding a power rarely attained by a
Chinese official, has for the first time In
Irtstory entrusted many of the most lu
crative and responsible posts In the metro

thority who owes his position to the In

to what extent are Yuan Shlh-kale pro

While these important conierenccs are
continuing, and while the outspoaen press
la clamoring for every conceivable reform
from compulsory education, the establish

racial distinctions to the suppression of
domestic slavery and eunuchs, and even to
the alteration of dress, no attempt Is be
ing made to Improve the condition of the

Uroadly speaking, every Internal change
called for by the press Is in the right di
rection, but the 'methods are ' crude and
the achievement so far Is Inconsiderable.
" .Most satisfactory Is the continued exten

the chief danger In China. Greater
knowledge must bring greater security for
the foreigner mid a greater demand for

are having an enormous Influence on the
evolution of the new China Is another
proof of the untiring patience, persever

one remembers that only ten years ago
there waa hardly a Chlnece newspaper

that she has seen five sovereigns who have

ROME. Nov. 3 (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) The alarming news of a
proximate rupture between Spain and the
Holy Bee has recently been bruited abroad
to all the winds of heaven on the wings
of the telegraph.
Now, Count Bonl do Castellane, deputy
of the lower Alps, declares that all this
story of complications between Spain and
the Vatican is a striking example of Inter
national "bluff." The trench government,
he says, had In 1!K4 Judged It advantsgeous
to break oft all relatione with Home. Tho
proceeding followed In these circum
stances was qualified as "historic false

had good right to know. "The inoppor

Tho French government having com
mitted itself to such a course, is endeavor
ing. It Is claimed, to have It believed by the
whole world that It la not alone In the con

countries have differences with the head of
the church, and grievances against him;
that even Spain, a nation Catholic above all
else, feels the necessity, since the arrival of
the'llberals to power, of shaking oft the
Intolerablo yoke of the religious power and
of defending themselves from Its Intrusions
