plan for them to have at least a nucleus

SAX FRANCISCO, July 23. (Spe
cial.) The picture of Yuan Shi Kal.
President of the Chinese republic, was
torn up and spat upon at a stormy
meeting of the local members of the
Six Companies in the Six Companies'
ball here last night. Chinatown today
bristled with excitement and promi
nent Chinese predicted that another
furious revolution would soon break
out In China.
The President of the Chinese repub
lic was denounced as "another Huerta,
only worse." It was declared at the
meeting that he had taken me onice
for the six-year term solely for the
selfish purpose of lining his pockets
with the people's money.

Trouble and discontent among tha
Chinese in San Francisco, together
wdth other cities of the United States,
extending as far East as New York,
started three months ago, when mem
bers of the Six Companies sent urgent
cablegrams to the President of '.he
Chinese republic asking that he do
something to Improve the conditions
among the Chinese In the United States.
In San Francisco alone, members
declare, more than 100i was spent for
telegrams to the President within three
months. One long and urgent tele
gram, which never was answered, cost
It Is charged by the Chinese that
Yuan Shi Kal willfully ignored them
and that he has not their Interests at
heart or the interest of fellow-Chinese
in the republic.
There arrived in San Francisco 10
days ago Chui Quai. personal repre
sentative of the President of the Chi
nese republic. He called on the Chi
nese Consul-General at San Francisco,
S. C. Chu. who in turn called on the
Six Companies and demanded that
members give an audience and a ban
quet to the President's representative.
Mrrtios on Verier of Kiot.
The meeting Friday night of the Six
Companies was for the purpose of de
ciding whether Chul Quai should be
received. The meeting opened with a
Tote showing about two-thirds against
acceding to the demand for the Consul
General and one-third in favor of it.
Bitter words ensued and the meet
ing verged on a rtot. as President Yuan
was bitterly denounced for ignoring
telegrams and insulting the Chinese In
the United States. He was accused
of being a dictator in dissolving his
Congress by methods worse than those
practiced by Huerta in Mexico. The
name of Huerta was llnkeil with that
of Yuan Shi Kai. It was asserted that
China faced a situation similar to that
In Mexico. At every mention of the
President of the Chinese republic hoots
and jeers Hilled the hall. Revolution
ary speeches were frequent. Those
who first favored receiving Repre
sentative Chui Quai are said to have
been won over to the hostile two-'
It was then that the picture of Pres
ident Yuan was torn from the wall. In
the excitement the picture of LI Huen
Hong. Vice-President of the republic,
was torn to shreds. This. It was after
ward explained, was a lamentable mis
take, as Li Huen Hong had not offend
ed the Chinese in the United States
and was popular with all factions in
Secret Kmlsnary Arrives.
To add to the local ferment Lin Sun
arnived here today on a secret mission
on behalf of Yuan Shi Kai. For the
past few weeks Lin has been in Hono
lulu quietly collecting Information as
to the growth of the new political sen
timent, and, it Is said, comes to this
country for the same purpose. On the
voyage the Chinese kept to his cabin
and on the arrival of the liner made a
hurried departure with local agents
of the Yuan Shi Kai party.
Because of the strong feeling against
Yuan Shi Kat In this city Lin, It Is
said, will keep under close cover, fear
ing a demonstration. He Is following
on the heels of the new revolutionary
delegation which arrived here several
days ago from the Far East, the mem
bers of which were exiled from China
by Yuan Shi Kai, who placed prices on
Lin bears credentials from the Chi
nese government and his passport was
immediately recognized by the immi

ports In China, Lin Is one of Yuan Shi
Kai's close advisers.
RULING AS TO UNION PACIFIC IS
REVERSED IN PART.
Through Route Heretofore Provided
for Fruit and Lumber Retained
With Railway's Consent.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, July 25. The Interstate Com
merce Commission on reconsideration
today granted the Union Pacific lines
permission to closo the Colorado gate
ways for general triffic between ex
clusive points of that system In Ore
gon and Washington and points on
and east of the Missouri River.
This decision Is a partial reversal
of the recent ruling of the Commission
affecting easlbound traffic via the
Wallula and Silver Bow gateways, in
its opinion today, the Commission
"Connections that would ordinarily
be entitled to a long haul as origina
tion lines on westbound traffic have
made no objection to this cancellation
of gateways, and the only protestants
who have appeared in tins proceeding
whose interests appear to be preju
diced are shippers of fruit and lumber.
As to such traffic the carrier expresses
Its willingness to retain in its tariffs
the through routes heretofore provided.
"The record shows that the Union
Pacific lines afford the shortest route
between the Missouri River and its
stations In Oregon and Washington,
and that It also affords, because of a
one-line haul, better service. It does
not appear, therefore, that any interest
will be adversely atfected by the can
cellation of the through routes by way
of Colorado as applied to the general
traffic of the line. The Union Pacific
will, therefore, be required to revise
their tariffs to restore the routes and
privileges heretofore existing on lum
ber and fruit traffic"
