Dalia Lama of Tibet left Pekin this morning for L'Hassa, his capital, and his depar- ture marks the beginning of the end of his four years of wandering over Northern China. The Lama started out, from L'Hassa shortly after the arrival there of a British column un- der the command of Col. Sir Francis Youngbusband. He felt that his Holy City had been desecrated by the presence of the Englishmen, and at -the h-ead of a large retinue he started on _wanderings that carried him over many thousand miles of Manchuria and China, always great- ly to the annoyance of the Chinese authorities, for he was an unwelcome and expensive visitor. The Chinese Government wanted him to return to his' capital in order to make possible the carrying out of certain reforms. Now he returns to L'Hassa shorn of his temporal authority, and in the future he will be regarded as a mere ecclesiastic, pledged to support what- ever reforms China desires to carry out in his country. The Dalai Lama caravan was com- posed of 404 persons, 200 horses, 200' camels, and 80 tents. An Imperial edict, commands all Chinese officials in the country to pay him full re- spect and render aid. .The position of the Dalai Lama has been very much weakened by his coming to Pekin, where he has betfu received as a barbarian, and humiliated accord- ingly. His religious practices have I been a revelation of the debased na- ture of the famous "Yellow and the practices of the Lama and his followeis have invited the con- tempt of the Chinese and foreigners. The Chinese Government is today considering the raising of funds for the establishment of banks and schools in Tibet, and also for the de- fence, the sub-division, and political reorganization of that country.
