Included in Tans-Shao-Yi's pnrtjr are

chance of a settlement being made
through mutual concessions.
Demand New Dynasty,
The republicans at present are de
termined to demand that the dynasty be
brought to a close and that the Manchus
as a class or clan be merged with the
Chinese, together with their dependen
cies. On this point a compromise eventually
may he reached, namely, that the em
peror be retained as a Chinaman at the
head of a new dynasty. It may be that

The national congress, if the proposition
Is accepted, wlll have Its members elected

be autonomous In regard to its own
affairs and will elect Its own governor.
There Is reason to believe that if the
revolutionaries concede the question of a

MOON DECISION IS DELAYED
Boston Man Fatally
Shoots His Son and
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 16-6amucl 1
Ayers of Boston shot and probably fatally
wounded his eon at a hotel early today
and then committed suicide.
Avers and his son had been here about
three months. The older man lost his
wife some time ago and remarked yes
terday to a chance acquaintance In a
barber shop that he had nothing now to
live for and wished to die.
Joseph Ayers, the son, was shot tn
the back of the head. The bullet pene
trated his brain, but surgeons said he had
a slight chance of recovery.
The double tragedy occurred at fl::
o'clock this morning. Father and son
occupied adjoining rooms. It is supposed
that the elder man entered his con's
room and after firing a bullet into the
latter's head, hurried back to his own
apartments and committed suicide. A
bullet entered his mouth and almost tore
the top of his head off.
Soon after coming to California, Sam
uel Ayers purchased a ranch at Beau
mont, near Riverside. Apparently the
family was well to do. Pass books showed
considerable deposits in several banks.

Ayres in the Boston directory Is Samuel
