that he was going home to be degraded-
because he had failed In de
feating the Chinese exclusion bill be
fore the American congress. With
such craft was this idea disseminated
throughout the world that most peo

the matter, believe to this day that
Mr. Wu has gone from a place of
honor In the t'nlted States to take a
minor and absolutely unimportant
post under his government at home.

But the facts In the case are slight

the plans that are making are carried
out by the governments interested in
them. Wu Ting Fang will be the
greatest man In the Chinese empire

the plans that the personality- of Wn
Ting Fang ought not properly be con
sidered at all In connection with
them. He is a mere cogwheel in the
great machine that has been set In

powers of the earth to preserve the

Recent Distinctions Conferred by the
King 8tir Up Contentions Among
The recent distinction conferred by
the king on the cities of Melbourne
and Sydney and giving their chief
magistrates the enhanced dignity of
lord mayor and the title of right hon
orable has raised some Questions of
etiquette and precedence, cays the
London Chronicle. It Is contended in
some quarters that the title of right
honorable gives the lord mayor of
Melbourne, the temporary capital of
trio commonwealth, rank and preced
ence over the president of the federal
senate and the speaker of the house
of Representatives, who are only hon
orables. If at tho next great vicere
gal function tho lord mayor of Mel
bourne attempts to go ahead 6f the
firr.t commoner of the whole common
wealth, complications may arise. But
perhaps, in the meantime the Her
ald's college In London will be con
sulted on this and kindred points,
and an amicable solution arrived at.
