Not sinco the taking of Port Arthur
by Russia have the Chineso been so
agitated as over this demand. Wiietn
er M. De Giers named a specific route is
not yet ascertainable, eoiiio officials as
sorting that only a preliminary notico
was given for a line direct fiom Peking
to Shan Hui Kwon.
Ceitainly tho British legation in
Peking had no previous knowledgo that
such proposal was coming from St.
Petersburg. Tho concession asked for
would ruin the existing northern rail
ways, in which British capital to tho
amount of 2.000,000 is investod, but
there seems to be no alternative routo
without interfering with plans for rail
way extension which tho Chineso
themsolves have in mind.
It is believed that Russia's action in
this matter is intonded to demonstrate
to tho world that tho recent convention
with Great Britain respecting spheres
of influonoo in China, which was noti
fied to tiie Chineso government almost
beforo this last convention was do
manded, lias not fottored tho aotion of
Russia at tho court of Peking, and also
to strengthen Russia's prestige with
