REA.SO.VS FOK CHINA'S ACTION. WASHINGTON', April 20.—The Chinese government has notified the government of the United States through the department of state of its unwillingness to receive Hon. Henry V>'. Blair as our minister to China. This is all the information that can he ohtained here. Secretary Blaine will not talk upon the subject, and the Chinese minister sent down word to callers that he had retired and his interpreter was not in the house. Mr. Blair's son was found and expressed surprise when informed of the action of the Chinese government It was, he said, the first that any of the family had heard of it His father, he felt sure, was not aware of the situation. It is well understood here that the objection to Mr. Blair is based upon his utterances concerning- the Chinese question, and that the republication of extracts from his speeches produced a deep impression upon the minds of prominent Chinese officials, which finally resulted in the notification received by the department of state Tuesday evening-. 16 objection of the Chinese government to Mr. Blair causes no excitement here, as this government recognizes the rig-ht of a foreign power to express its unwillingness to receive a minister who is not entirely acceptable. "WASHINGTON, April 20.— A representative of the Associated Press called at ;he Chinese legation here and had an interview with Minister Yen in regard to the declination • of his •overnment to receive. Senator Blair as the accredited representative of the Jnited States. Mr. Yen said through an interpreter that lie had received a cablegram from ilie Chinese foreign office which he was instructed to lay before , Secretary Blaine without delay, expressing the unwillingness of the emperor to receive Mr. Blair. Other than this Mr. Yen had received no instructions, written or otherwise, from his government on the subject. The exact language of the cablegram, or whether the reasons for this action were given, he failed to state. Personally he had a very high opinion of Senator Blair. He had met him several times, and had always found him to be a very courteous gentleman. At the time Senator Blair xvas nominated minister to China, Mr. Yen. was in Peru, to which government he is also the representative of China and did not return to the United States until early in the present month. He had never had occasion to ascertain what had been Senator Blair's attitude toward China or the Chinese residents in this country and not until his return had the senator's utterances on the Chinese question as reported in the "Congressional record," been brought to his attention. The minister conveyed the impression that he had simply stated facts to his g-overnment, and aside from that had not sought to influence its decision, cither favorably to the senator or unfavorably. CHICAGO. April 29.—Ex-Senator Blair. is registered at the Auditorium hotel, having arrived here during the forenoon. Mr. Blair had no hesitancy in expressing himself on the report from the national capital that. the Chinese government had submitted to the department of state a formal protest against his being 1 sent to China. "I have received no official notice of such a protest," said Mr. Blair. "All that I know about it is what I have seen, in the newspapers. I may be permitted to doubt its correctness for the reason that the state department knows I am en route to China and if it had decided to recall me it would have done so without delay." "Will you not stop over in Chicago in order to secure definite information from Washington as to whether you are to continue your journey?" "Not for a period longer than I first intended. My original intention was to remain here only until Thursday. If by that time I hear nothing from Washington I shall proceed to San Francisco and sail from that point." "Is there any good reason why the Chinese should object to you, senator?" "I do not think so, of course. Neither do I believe the Chinese government thinks so. During my service in congress . whatever I did I did from conviction. Whatever I did • in the matter of Chinese immigration also received the indorsement of the government, and the government is responsible—not I personally. It is incredible that a.ny nation would seek to enforce personal liability, especially at,this late day." -Arrested for Embezzlement, BOCKFOKD, 111., April.29.—Ted Peterson has been placed under arrest for embezzlement. He came here about a year ago, represented himself as possessed of considerable means and was given the management of the West End Furniture Company.
