WASHINGTON. March 11--President
Wilson tonight In a statement, approved
by his cabinet utter two hours of dlr
cusston, announced thnt his udmlnUtra
tlon had declined to request thi group of
American bankers to continue their nego
tiations for participation In the
000,000 loan desired by the Chinese gov
The statement follows:
'Wa are Informed that at the request
of the last administration a certain group
Of American bankers undertook to par
ticipate. In the loan now desired by the
government of China (approximately
$125,(100.000.) Our government wished
American bankers to participate along
with the bankers of other nations, be
cause It desired that the (rood will of the
United States towards China would be
exhibited . In this practical way, that
American, capital should have access to
that great country, and that the United
States should be In a position to slmrc
with the other powers any political re
sponsibilities that might be associated
with the development of the foreign re
lations of China In connection with her
industrial nid commercial enterprises.
Thes present administration has been
' asked by this group of bankers whether
it would also request them to participate
In the loan. Tho representatives of the
bankers through whom the administra
tion was approached declared that they
would continue to seek their share of the
loan under the, proposed agreements only
If expressly requested to do so by tho
Condltlonn Not Approved.
The administration has declined to
make such request because It did not ap
prove tho conditions of tho loan qr the
Implications ot. reeponslbillt yon Its own
part winch It wasf plainly told would ba

The -condition of "the'loan seem to up
Independence of China itself, and this
administration does not feel that it ought
even by Implication to be a party to those
conditions. Tho responsibility on Its part
which woUld be Implied in requesting
, tho bankers to undertake tho loan might
conceivably go the length In some un
happy contingency of forcible Interfer
ence In tho financial and even the political
affairs of that Brent Oriental state. Just
now awakening to a consciousness of Its
power and ItH obligations to the people.
The conditions Kvlude not only the pledg
Ing of particular tuxes, some of them
antiquated and burdensome, to secure the
loan, but also the administration of those
taxes by foreign agents. The responsibil
ity on the part of our government Im
plied In the encouragement of a loan
thus secured and administered Is plain
enough und Is obnoxious to the principles'
upon which the government of our peo
Willing to Aid Chinese, j
The government of the United States is
not only willing, but sarnestly desirous
of aiding the great Chinese m-ontn in
every way that Is consistent with their
uutrummeled development and Its own
Immemorial principles. The nwakenlng
of the peoplo of China to a consciousness
of their possibilities under free govern
ment is the most significant. If not tho

tho American people are In profound sym
pathy. They certainly wish to partici

"The government of the United States
is earnestly desirous of promoting thi
most extended and Intimate trade rela
tionships between this country and the
Chinese republic. The proaent adminis
tration will urge nnd support the legis
lative measures necessary to give, Amerl

financial facilities which they now lack,
und without which they are ut a serious
disadvantage as compared with theh' In
