AIMER THE WORLD CHINA TO RIOT IN CEDAR RAPIDS. Will fie thf-ottn opeft in Trade IVItl the World. SttASmiAT. Sept. 0. — Reports are in circulation in circles of the highest authority to the effect that the interior of China will soon be thrown open ,to free trade With the rest of the world. When Li Hung Chang was in England, one of his staff said that the main object of his tour Was to sound the European governments regarding an increase in China's tariff. He added that it is understood that Russia, Germany and France were favorable to an increase, but the British premier brought forward several important counter propositions, and it is now certain that China is inclined to concede these conditions; that as a preliminary the tariff be increased and ill transit dues in the interior of ihina be abolished, and later free trade established throughout the empire. The preliminary increase jn .he tariff is made necessary in order .o secure necessary loans. It is ex- x.'eted that if Great Britain advances lie money China will place orders for i large number of warships with the Jritish ship yards and that British Ulcers instead of (ierman will be detailed to reorganize the Chinese army. This, of course, is deeideitly the English view of the case. It is also understood Unit China has practically decided to extend her railroads, and a foreign commission will be entrusted with the task. ANXIETY IN TURKEY.
