the future, , . . ;r ,
. I . Proposal Unsettled'
The state department was in
formed; today of the release by
the American' consul at Shanghai.
It was - indicated, 'however,, that
questions t of indemnity ; and.", of
guarantees against 1 repetition of
such outrages would-be taken up
by the diplomats in Peking at the
first opportune, moment. ; ' ' : '
r: Sa . fas a is known here, the
Peking diplomatic corps: ha not
as yet worked out any definite
proposals u to future guarantees
to b-required: of the Peking go v
ernnlent.fr'-iri : ;.: t,-. r
'. Through all the ktnthries the
Chinese have- lived to a large ex
tent without a central government
and it is only within- recent years
that there has been evidence that
a national spirit was ia th. earl
iest, stages of, development among
thenk,.- . . - ... ..- J- . . .
, : In dealing with the Peking gov
ernments the diplomatic corps at
the Chinese capital., always has
recognized the sharp, contrast be
tween . western ; civilisation -r and
that, of the Chinese J It alao-mnt
be considered, it is said,, ia work
ing out a solution for tire, bandit
outrages against foreigners which
have become more; frequent in
Chinas within recent months;. "
, . , ; WiU Be Specific :
: There is no-doubt in the opinion
of informed officials here that
specific guarantees; -' ' will - be- re
qUired of the Peking authorities.
By what means either the pres
ent Poking ministry, or whatever
faction or group In 1 China may
succeed It ' win "bo able to enforce
its' will-on the provincial 'and les
ser officials throughout the
pandit-infested region doe? net
now appear since the Peking gor
ernment; was able, to obtain the re
lease of thecaptlyeS by the bandits
only ' when?"; Rby:' Anderson, an
American long resident' in China,
gave' Bis personal,; guarantee that
the Peking government wqald'car
ry out its promises. .
. Resort toBrtbery
It is noceworthy'in the view of
observers here that - throughout
the exchanges between" the' Pek
ing diplomatic body and the Chi
nese government; ho" demand that
tbe bandit leaders responsible for
the outrage be tried and'punlshed
was made in behalf of the powers
whose nationals were victims, j '
The entire trend of the negotia
tions made It clear that the Pek
ing diplomats, recognized the weak
hold of any Chinese central gov
ernment upon such a situation and
that it was probable that only, by
buying the - bandits" off,, as ,: was
done, could the lives of the captive
foreigners be protected. The same
sitnatton-4 undoubtedly' will have
a bearing- upon) the negotiations
for permanent ' guarantees now
