Yuan Shi Kai is having tlie time of his life hold- ing the government together, .prin- cipally ou account of the obstructive tactics of the politicians, many 'of them young, inexperienced mon, com- posing the national assembly. President Yuan has, however, at last taken a firm hold on tlie situa-j tion and with th-e covert aid of.the] military, has succeeded in chastening the council. It seems that the astute Yuan has also succeeded in obtaining the support of the country at large in what he has done and henceforth the embryonic statesmen of the nation council will probably make less trou- ble. Last week the president sent to the council a number of nominations to fill vacancies made in tlie cabinet -by the resignations of certain men be- longing to the party of Tang Shao Yl, the premier who suddenly quit. Yuan begged these men to stay, but they put their party interests above their duty to the government, and Y was compelled to accept, their resig- nations. He proposed a list of suc- cessors and sent them to the national council. Then a perfectly ludicrous, yet pain ful thing happened. -Air.

Tho premier is a diplomat and poli- tician, having 'been abroad in the diplomatic service for the last twenty years or so. He made a very ba-d im- pression.
