Not sinco the taking of Port Arthur by Russia have the Chineso been so agitated as over this demand. Wiietn er M. De Giers named a specific route is not yet ascertainable, eoiiio officials as sorting that only a preliminary notico was given for a line direct fiom Peking to Shan Hui Kwon. Ceitainly tho British legation in Peking had no previous knowledgo that such proposal was coming from St. Petersburg. Tho concession asked for would ruin the existing northern rail ways, in which British capital to tho amount of 2.000,000 is investod, but there seems to be no alternative routo without interfering with plans for rail way extension which tho Chineso themsolves have in mind. It is believed that Russia's action in this matter is intonded to demonstrate to tho world that tho recent convention with Great Britain respecting spheres of influonoo in China, which was noti fied to tiie Chineso government almost beforo this last convention was do manded, lias not fottored tho aotion of Russia at tho court of Peking, and also to strengthen Russia's prestige with tho Chineso, which was unfavorably afleoted by her withdrawal of hor lato protest respecting tho northern rail ways.
