BESS U n i t e d I'ri'M Stuff PEIP1NG, Jan, 1.--The N( tlonal Government adheres firmly to it« decision, announced in September, to abolish the exterritorial system. The special rights hold by American's and other foreigners in China therobrWHl be automatically cancelled. So far as Americans are aonvvrned, an American official here declare* that Mils action will "create an Impaepe which w i l l cause diplomatic enbar- raeemcnl for «. long linio to come" bccauBe* the American government does not iccognizc the right of. the Chinese government lo Abolish estra- (orriloriality except by 'n treat)- to which (lie Anicrloan government IB a party,' Frbm today therefore the sittmtlon will be greatly eonfusod for American resldenls in China. Tho ChineBe sov- crnm»nt \vill claim tlmt Am«r;l;a.ns tiro subject to Cbineeo courte in both Kvlmlnltl and civil Th-o Ataer- ican government will claim for its cidKBriG tho right (o be trim? in American consular courts in which (hey are defendants. If Chinese are defendants and Americans plain tiffs the case can be tried in a'Chincdd court, ait it. has been in tftc post, A spokesman for the Chlne*e government has intimated that tlie situation, will not ))o so bad 0*3 American Officials here fear, lie auggeete t i n t tho Chinese government will aboHsli eitra-terrltoriulily, hut wil not iscrl- ouely enforce abolition for 1 eame ti^ne to come. He cites the case of Japan, which the Chinese claim hna had. no special righte in China since IS !6, when its treaty expired, and whi'h has not yet been replaced. ' Diplomats here, however, declare that .Japan's position te most unsatisfactory, and abolition oC the apeci il rights of other countries will simply aggravate tho evil. They point o u t ' that Japanese havo refused 'to Te tried in Chinese oou'rte, and have been eujt- pdrted "by their government, which refuses to agree t h a t ita special right* arri otvdcd. "But this simply i means chaoe," said one American official. "Tin liKfte claim that we have no-special right's after today, and we Insist that, we -to. How can any dtepute Te nd · jtisted under riuch conditions?" Tho American government's poin of view, which coincides with that o' other countries still holding specin rightfi, ie briefly this: "Chinest courts vitill ore Inwipable o£ administering justice according to ·western standards. Chineart courts are still dominated by military leaders. Ohineito judg-Ci? are not free to render nnjiar icl decisions. Wo must retain our own con«mlnr courts in China u n t i l these conditions are changed." The Chinese government's point of view is thie: "It is an insult to China to have foreigners iricd in their own courts. Until wo can judge foreigners in our own courts, China will be considord an i n f e r i o r nation. We jjinsfc get control of foreign residents in. China Tjefore we maka any, real progress." Both skies are convinced (heir own viewpoint is right. There is no Indication that either will yield. The outcome is therefore- 1 extremely uncertain. Mejreradale , ,Tan.
