PEK1N. June 4 (Correspondence of

frank confessions of China' weakness
and humiliation In agreeing to- the
Japanese demands, appear not only in
the newspapers, but in high official doc
uments which are attracting general
notice among Doth the Chinese and for
eigners. For Instance, a presidential
proclamation which was issued Imme
diately after the signing of the new
treaties with Japan says "we are
ashamed of the humiliation. and there
with the President goes so far aa to
add. "and I feel that I am a man of
little virtue and ability."
Quoting more fully, the proclamation
reads as follows:

but only tboite which have a good In

gard to the details of the negotiation,
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has al

there Is hope for the restoration of

others while we ourselves are at fault?
Clur own weakness has invited the In

have no ris;ht to stake the existence
of the nation: therefore we have to
work out her salvation with care.
"If we can reniemoer our past mis
