countries into an antl-monarchial
organization. When the revolution
of 1911 broke and was followed in
1912 by the abdication of the boy
emperor, Hsuan Tung, the repub
lican government set up at Nanking
elected Sun Tat Sen president. Soon
after he retired in favor of Yuan
Shin Kai. but when Yuan turned
traitor to the republican cause and
attempted himself to ascend the
dragon throne Sun vociferously op
posed him. '
Following Yuan's coup, the then
premier, Tuan Jui, dissolved the re
publican parliament, and with that
anti-democratic stroke in 1917 the
constitutional government of South
China which yesterday collapsed
came into being.
Sun fled to Canton, taking the
navy with him, and established the
South China government and con
tinued to be its dominant figure

palace yesterday with Chen Chiung
Ming"s troops battering the gate.
JR. IN COURT
PEKIN, Juno il. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) While the troops of
General Chen Chiung-Ming had cap
tured the city of Canton, capital of
the South China republic, the body
guard of President Sun Yat-Sen still
fought from the presidential palace,
according to a dispatch from Can
ton filed at 4- o clock yesterday. Sun
was supposed to have escaped to
Whampoa on a gunboat.
Whampoa is on the Canton river,
Advices sail General Chen again
had declared himself in favor of
the old all-China parliament.
General Chen Chiung-Ming an
nounced today that the South China
or Canton government has been ter
minated and tbat henceforth Canton
wsuld unite with th north in rec
ognizing the old republican parlia
ment. Dispatches from Canton described
the collapse of the southern govern
ment as complete. Sun's military
forces crushed and the former can
ton president himself a fugitive.
Unity Obstacles Removed.
The two greatest obstacles to the
reunion of China, namely Dr. Sun
Yat-Sen and General Chang Tso-Lin,
apparently are eliminated and the
prospect for bringing the whole re
public under one government seems
brighter today than at any time
since the establishment of the south
China regime at Canton in 1918.
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen. head of the
south China government, has fled
from his capital, according to of
ficial advices received today. The
forces of General Chen Chiung-Ming
have occupied Canton and Dr. Sun
has sought safety aboard a gunboat
General Chen is understood to fa
vor the plans of Provincial Presi
dent Li Yuan Hung and General Wu
Pei-Fu for assembling a constitu
tional all-China parliament here.
Chen, one of the most powerful of
the southern military men, joined 13
provincial military governors late
last month in indorsing General Wu
Pei-Fu's call for the assembling of
the parliament. Only a few days
ago Dr. Sun offered him the com
mand of all the southern armies for
his support against the Pekin gov
ernment, but the offer was rejected.
Army Is In Danger.
As the result of Chen's coup at
Canton, Dr. Sun's principal army is
In a precarious position. These
forces are facing 12,0-00 of Wu's
troops at Nanchang in Kiangsi prov
ince while the hostile army of Gen

General Chang Tso-Lin, the Man
churian leader, while not wholly
eliminated, js in a conciliatory mood
as a result of his recent defeat by
Wu's Chihll army on - the Chihli
Hanchurian front. The opposing
commanders on that front "are re
ported to have boarded a British'
warship at Chinwangtao to arrange
Advices received here vary as to
the details of what are called the
last hours of the southern consti
tutional government, nor is it defi
nitely known how much f'ghting
preceded Sun Yat-Sen's flight.
One dispatch from American
sources in Canton dclares that Sun's
bodyguard continued to hold the
presidential palace in the face of
the assaults of Yechui's troops after
their leader had taken refuge aboard
a gunboat and left for Whampoa.
City Suddenly Surrounded. -
Another report said that Chen
Chiung-Ming's forces, commanded
by Yechui, suddenly surrounded
Canton, seized the forts, invaded the
city and marched upon the palace.
The fall of the southern leader is
said to have been the result of an
agreement between General Wu
Pei-Fu, dominant military chieftain
of northern China, President Li
Yuan-Hung and Chen Chiung-Ming,
tormeriy bun Xat-Sens supporter,
tut who latterly came out in. favor
of a reunited China.
Official circles here assert the
elimination of Sun-Yat-Sen will
mean speeding up of the plans to
reunify the country, However, they
issue the warning that a counter
revolution may develop if Sun is
able to gather enough troops about
him to launch a drive to regain
Unless Sun is able to retrieve his
lost authority, it is believed that
Chen Chiung-Mingrs coup will re
sult in many southern members of
the old republican parliament pro
ceeding to Pekin and establishing
the necessary quorum to put that
legislative body in legal motion
Political Situation Hazy.
Considerable political haze per
vades the situation revolving about
the offer of the premiership said
to have been made by President Li
to Wu Ting-Fang, formerly Chinese
minister to Washington and hitherto
a pillar of strength in the south
China government. Wu Ting-Fang
is reported denying that he has re
ceived any such offer but officials
in Pekin declare that a leading role
in the reunification of China waits
him if he will but say the word.
Supporters of General Wu Pei-Fu
hail him as a leader who has
achieved successes believed im
possible. In his list of triumphs they point
to the crushing defeat he admin
istered in the field to Chang Tso
Lin, war lord of Manchuria; then
his statecraft in forcing Hsu Shih
Chang out of the presidential chair,
followed by the recall of Li Yuan
Hung to the post of chief executive
and finally his elimination of Sun
Yat Sen, the last great leader in
the country standing out against
his reunited China programme. '
Dr. Sun Yat Sen, called by his
supporters the father of the Chi
nese republic, and the lite ,and soul
of r.rre democratic revolution of 1911,
wh.ioh resulted in the death of the
monarchy and the birth of the re
public, was born in Kwantung pro
vince in 1866. s
He was educated in Hongkong
and Honolulu, where he lived dur
ing two separate periods of his life.
Sun leaped into prominence as a
Chinese revolutionary leader in 1896,
when he was kidnapped in London,
allegedly with the connivance of the
Chinese leg-ation which represented
the Manch.u dynasty. He regained
his liberty when the British govern
ment took cognizance of the affair.
Sin Travels Whole World.
In his years of exile Sun traveled,

Purely Expert Conference on
LOBBYISTS ALSO ACTIVE
More Palatable Dish 'for Soviet
Government Than That Pre
sented at Genoa Likely.
BY SAMUEL SPEWACK.
(Copyright, 1922, by the New York
World. Published by Arrangement.)
THE HAGUE, June 17. (Special
cable.) Politics has entered The
Hague conference on Russia, despite
official declarations that this was
to be a purely expert meeting.
The political trend is indicated by
the Belgian and Czecho-Slovakian
departure from the French path.
Belgium has' joined the conference
actively, while Charles Beno'st,
French minister to Holland, says
he cannot participate actively until
he gets instructions from Paris. This
latter point resulted in postpone
ment of further meetings until Mon
day afternoon and by that time
Premiers Poincare and Lloyd George
will have had a chance to discuss
Even more pronounced is Czecho
slovakia's split with French policy
in regard to Russia. I am informed
that the leader of the little entente
has Informed France that she Is no
longer in a position to support the
unyielding French stand.
Situation Baa Changed.
"W e have a commercial agreement
in our pockets," the Czecho-Slovakia
representative told me. "We are no
longer Interested in those questions
of property, debts and credits. The
situation has changed since Genoa."
But while these political currents
are flowing where politics was for
bidden, the British and Dutch are
making every effort to build up a
united front to be presented to the
Russians. The British are already
talking of the "method of approach
They make no secret of their in
tention to prepare a more palatable
dish than was served the Soviets at
Genoa. But it is doubtful if they will
cook up anything like a fixed plan
that can be answered by a plain
yes or no.
Lobbyists Are Coming.
My. Information is that the prob
lem will be handled, if all agree, by
settling individual cases of confis
cated property without academic
argument about principles. This is
what the British hope for, but they
fear French insistence on the letter
of the law.
;.- So politics has entered, and with
it the lobbyists. Of these Hugo
Stinnes is by far the most prom
inent. He was here only for the
Financiers who have interests in
Russia are arriving and the same
secrecy marks their movements here
as at Genoa. But the real rush will
come when the oil men begin cod
ing, as they are expected about the
time the Russians are due. They
are the men who are prepared so
one hears to talk business.
