K-Thc com liig week will bs perliapj the most notable In tho history of tho revolution In China. Tang-SSIiao-YI, llio imperial plenipoten tiary, appointed fcy 1'remier Yuen-Fhl-Kai to negotiate terms of peace with the victorious rnvolutlonarlcs is lo arrive in ShuriKhal on Sunday. , On their arrlvnl hern they will have traveled about MX) miles along the river Yang-Tpc, which Is pntro'.ed by a score "f revolutionary cruisers and gunboats.

Included in Tans-Shao-Yi's pnrtjr are two leading officials, Yen Shi FS, con nected with tho board of finances, and Yant; Sho Chi, former president of the hoard of communications, who will act as his counsellors. He also has with him twenty-two repre sentative of different provinces of China, who have been selected by Tro mlcr Yuan-Shl-Kal to offnet tho revolu tionary convention, now sitting at Nan king.

Each province, however, will 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 republic Yuan-Shl-Kal will accept their lerms. The chief difficulty appears to be with the hotheads, students and extrem ists, who are- demanding . a republlq, HURON MAN JUMPS FROM - AUTO AND IS BADLY HURT lllllON. 8. ' D.. Dec. 16. 8peelal.)
