While not able oa account of the snow, to inspect tho property, he gathered information from all possible sources, as well as from Jlr. Vim I'olt, including maps, samples, etc. lfrable adverse comments have been Housed by tho face that Prince Chun the regent, is ignoring the Chinese in announcing the composition of the committee that are to have the fun-ral obsequies of the late Emperor and Phnpress in hand. The only two Chinese appointed are Arun Shi Kai and Liu Chun Ling, the remainder are Manchus. The selection of Prince Pu Lun and Chen Pi to proceed to tlie western tombs and select the site for the mausoleum of Kuang Hsu, the late Emperor has been received with great dissatisfaction, principally because Prince Pu Lun was at one time active In the intrigue to secret the throne for himself. Chen Hi is a former Boxer and anti-foreign in his sentiments. He owes his position and power to the Eunuch. The acts of Prince Chun are clothed with full imperial authority and hIiow that he is jealous of the Man-icliu prerogatives and guards them sedulously. His edicts show clearly I lie literary style of Chang Tung a member of the grand council, but otherwise Chang is not active in affairs of state and appears to have Ijoeii eclipsed.

This communication wag forwarded by the accredited representative of the com-numity. Tlieie is absolutely no truth in the report telegru|ihed here from Singapore' and elsewhere to the effect that Pekin is in flames and in the hands ot a mob and that Prince Ching, president of the foreign board is dead nor is the Dowager Empress Yehon-ala ill.
