that even they were amared when the

The driving: motives of the Insurrection
are economic quite as much as political.
The Impoverishment of the Chinese Is
probably far greater than It was a gen

harried by the tax collectors even dur
ing the last ten 'years than they were
previous to the Boxer uprising. The prea
hiire of the Imperial government and the
provincial consuls for money has crushed
the mass of the people until their misery

government, a weakness that has been
more marked since 1900 than before in
this generation, gave the Insurgent lead
era confidence that they would be able
to make headway against any force that
the Imperialists might send against them.
The Chinaman loves the secret society.
Communal feeling, the necessity of the
Individual being supported by his fellows,
has been utilized by the revolutionaries
to the utmost. The revolutionary secret
societies extending throughout southern
China probably Include a membership of
several millions, the control of them cen
tralizing in a small group of able men.
The political poster and leaflet has been
largely the means of preparing the mass
of the people for change. The work of
the secret societies has been directed to
circulating single sheet pamphlets or
pasting up little Inflammatory posters
discrediting the army, narrating specific
Instances of the ruthlessnesa of the Man
elm tax gatherer, the neglect of the peo
ple by those who assumed to be paternal
benefactors, the weakness of the Peking
government and a hundred other alle
gations undermining the fear and the re
spect of the people for their despotic
Idncated Blen Ilchlnd I prising.
A singular feature baa been the atti
tude of the student class. Those educated
abroad have been largely Instructed In
Japan. They seek to follow In the foot
steps of new Japan, which succeeded in
ridding the country of foreign Interven
tion and in becoming a great power
within the term of an ordinary life.
Thousands of theso bright men and en
ergetic youths are scattered throughout
the country preaching the doctrine that
China is cursed by the weakness of Its
own government yielding to the foreign
ers, and that help, progress and ecurity
can only come by upsetting the' existing
order and organizing upon the principle
of China for the Chinese. Ktrangely also
these agitators. Including all those edu
cated in Japan, are furiously anti-Japanese.
The correspondent will not endeavor to
predict the result of the present far
reaching Insurrection, it seems likely to
succeed, but the foreign observers have
a profound distrust of the present ca
pacity of the Chinese for republican In
stitutions in the western sense, should
the revolution succeed, the government
probably will be a military dictatorship
in which perhaps some able and Just In
dividuality will be In command. The
revolutionary cause appears to nave many
leaders truly patriotic and with aims be.

ML'KDEN, Manchuria, Dec. t. Japan
watches the development of the revolu

tention. The Japanese have In it an In
terest both economic and political deeper
than Americans would have in a revolu
tion In Canada or in Mexico.
The results of civil war In China must
within the view of authoritative observers
here have a profound Influence on every
Asiatic power and upon Japan most of
all. Japanese statesmanship In Its relic
tions to the Asiatic mainland must have
always In mind that there alone ran
Japanese expansion tnke place without
coming Into collision with a European or
an American power.
The Japanese press and the Japanese
government have apparently accepted the
fact that the white races bar the way
to colonization In . Australia, North
America and in Asia beyond the confines
One need not reach a conclusion now
as to whether Japan would have given
up the railway and southern Manchuria
to China upon the expiration of the rail
way lease. Certainly the disorder In
southern China and the extreme weakness
of the Imperial government at Peking
cause responsible Japanese officials here
to feel that southern Manchuria is more
than ever Japaneae.
Viceroy Financed by Japan.
The viceroy of Manchuria has declared
his Independence. Immediately following
tlu't announcement the Yokohoma specie
bank, a Japanese government Institution,
has loaned the viceroy several million
dollars. The foreign observers here con
sider this loan as guaranteed by a politi
cal mortgage upon southern Manchuria.
Now the Japanese vested right In Man
churia Is considered t run until such a
time as the provincial government of
Manchuria can repay this loan. Jt Is un

government of Manchuria proceeds under
The sectional rivalry between northern
and southern China Is such that the
southern revolutionary chiefs appeared to
care very little for what becomes of
Mongolia and Manchuria, so that It Is
porslble that In the event of a strong
republic or dictatorship being founded by
the Insurgent the new government would
not come Into serious collision with either
Japan or Russia over what either country
might do In Manchuria or In northwestern
Although Japanese statesmanship will
probably avail Itself of every opportunity
created by the changing governmental
conditions In the Chlnest empire, yet
there appears to bo no disposition to add
to tho difficulties or to Intervene In ony
manner beyond the borders of Manchuria.
The aim of Japanese policy seems now
as beforo the Outbreak of the revolution
to be In the direction of encouraging an
efficient government In the Chinese em
