CHINA HOLDING OUT
Breaks Off Negotiations Regard
ASKS FOR MORE LIBERAL TERMS
Objects to the Restrictions Placed on
Merchants, Travelers and Stu

Washington, April 27. — Negotia
tions between the United States and
China for a treaty restricting the im
migration of Chinese to this country
have practicall}’ been abandoned. It
has been found impossible by the rep
resentatives of the two governments to
reach a common grounîi of agreement.
The whole subject, therefore, is being
held in abeyance until W. W. Rock-
hill, the recenty appointed minister of
the United States to China, shall ar
rive in Peking It is expected that he
will take up the matter directly with
the Chinese government.
When Wu Ting Fang was minister of
China to this capital, he made an ex
haustive study of the Chinese immigra
tion question, ascertaining very pre
cisely, among other things, the Ameri
can point of view, lie maintained con
sistently the injustice of the restric
tions thrown by this government
around the immigration of Chinese, but

the way of lowering the barfiers dur

In China he is
