Conditions in China An important message in Wednesday's Times quotes

a series of messages received by the North China Daily News from its correspondents all over China going to show tint, at any rate in all the central regions, conditions are materially improving, as is evidenced by better military discipline, more stable local administration and a notable. diminution of anti-foreign agitation. The North Chinn Daily News is by no means Sinophile and what it says may be taken as an accurate picture of the situation. If it is, the misgivings of many statesmen who will have to consider the Sino-Japanese question at Geneva in ten days' time should be materially alleviated. The prospect of a more stable China would diminish many difficulties.
