Tenth Year
Prince Ghing   Sold  to
Protecting the Legations at Pekin.
London, July 9.���Admiral Brucellas
Bent a telegram to the Admiralty Department at Taku. under date of July
T, to the effect that there ure grounds
for hoping that Prince Ching with his
army is nl Pekin protecting the Legations agalllBt Prince Tumi's army and
tlie Boxers.
The more hopeful Feeling engendered by Saturday's news from Pekin was
further strengthened this morning by
Rear Admiral Brace's endorsement of
the previous rumors that Prince Chlng,
who is said to be heading a counter
revolution at Pekin, is fighting in be-
lmlf of the Legations against tho
usurper. Prince Tuan.
If tlie Admiral's hope turns out lo
be well founded, this turn of events
is of tlie utmost importance as it is felt
here that in some such division among
the Chinese themselves lies tlie best
hope of tin' safety of the foreigners.
If the Powers can Hud allies in China
itself, it will materially facilitate the
task of restoring order. Those best
acquainted with the country believe
tin,, if Die diplomatists ace able to induce such men as Li Dung Chang or
Chang Chi l'ueng to send forces lo
the assistance of Prince Chine-, tlie
hordes of revolutionaries will disperse
as quickly aa they have collected and
a way to l'ekin will he open
great delay.
With all due allowance for the uncertainty in regard to their reliabilities, the authorities here feel that the
latest messages from the Par Bast give
distinct hope, If. as suggested, the
native sympathisers are aide to keep
the besieged Legations reasonably
supplied with provisions, tin'   foreign
China. Tlie newspapers endorse this
action, point out that should the for
oignerS at l'ekin perish, Japan could
not lie a 1 iso 1 veil  from blame.

Report of tho 1). S. Consul at Pekin
to His Government.
Washington, D, C, July 9.���The
last China mail to reach the Slate
Department brought the report of
.Minister Conger, perhaps the last
that will ever coinc to hand. This
hears date of Pekin, May 81. It is
of the utmost importance disclosing
as it docs a full comprehension on tlie
part of foreign ministers in l'ekin of
thc character of the Boxer uprising,
even though Mr. Conger, optimistic
himself hy disposition, found some
reason to hope that the worst was
over at that dale. What Mr. Conger
has to say as to the attitude of
ihe Chinese        Government        to
ward Ihe Boxer movement, as revealed in tlie formal Interchange that
took place between himself and the
Tsung l.i Yanion, is not only of
peculiar interest now, but will have
strong hearing on the final reckoning
thai must he had between the civilised
mil ions and the Chinese Mr. Conger
makes it very clear through the publication of the French priests' letter
that at least one. am! probably all, of
the European nations having interests
in northern China were acquainted
Willi the dangers of the situation ut
least I wo or three weeks before the
without actual outbreak in Pekin. The correspondence referred to is as follows:
"Legation for the United States of
America, Pekin. May '.'1. 1000. To
the llou. John May, Secretary of
Slate. Washington :
"Sir. ��� In response to the  questldh
of   the   French    Minister,   tlie     Dean
culled  a  meeting of  the diplomatic
'corps yesterday, and.   upon    inforinu-
ent it is true, they seem to have no
capable leader, but should one arise
and the populace become really in-
lluined, the overthrow of the present
dynasty is most likely to follow and
possibly the destruction of the Empire.
"They replied that I did not under'
stand the ninny difficulties under
which they labored, but, that they had
succeeded in repressing the Boxers in
the Province of Sluing Tung and
would do   so here.
"1 told.them I saw no effective
measure whatever being put forth.
They replied that the movement had
not been looked upon itH serious, hut
now the Throne was fully aware of the
gravity of the situation and that a recent Confidential decree had been sent
to tbe Viceroy, the l'ekin and neighboring ollieials, whieli would surely
prove effective, suppress the Boxers
and restore order. 1 told them that
the most alarming telegrams were being sent to the newspapers of thc United States and Europe telling of the
existence of anarchy here, and that
the world would be forced to believe
thnt the .Government of China was
either abetting the murderous brigands or that it was too weak to suppress or control them and its good
name and credit must suffer irretrievably in consequence,
"After reading me the decree, which
was much like those heretofore published, they asked if I would not wire
my Government that they could and
were suppressing tlie Boxers. I replied that at present I would not. that
I had been for six months telegraphing the issuance of ineffective decrees,
but if they would show the fact by
actual and immediate repression,
which they could if they would Ini
three days, I would gladly and quiok-
ly wire it lo my Qovernment. They
assured me that Sufficient troops had
been sent to the disturbed districts to
restore order   and afford protection.'

tried commanders should accompany
the division he was preparing, adding
thnt if au army corps was needed, he
would like to go himself, These re-
eonimeiidulions put Lord Landsdownc

Before he answered Lord Roberts'
suggestion, the latter heard from
private sources that none of his

The resignation of Lord Weyiuiss,
thc honorary colonel and Colonel
Eustace Balfour, the commanding offloe. of tlie crack London Scottisli
Volunteers, as a result of their desire
to protest against the Government's
treatment of the volunteers in the
service, has created a sensation. Colonel Balfour is a brother of the
cabinet minister of that naine, and
Lord Weyiuiss has done more for this
brunch of Great Britain's defence than
any other man. The trouble arose
over the War Office refusing to give a
grant to the London Scottish Volunteers because they were unable, owing
to having 138 men at the front, to put
fifty   per cent   of   their   strength   ill
camp for the maneuvers.

The latest news   fiom   Tien Tsin  i
contained in a news agency message, I
dated July 6th,   reporting a   renewed
Chinese   attack    that    morning   with !
twelve guns.    The allied  force replied|
with the guns lauded from the liritisli
flrst-clasS   cruiser     Terrible,    and    a
mixed   force   of   one    thousand    men
made   a   sortie   under   cover   of   the
Foreign  Naval Brigade and  attacked
the Chinese, who  retired   after   seven
hours   lighting.       Earlier   despatches
record severe lighting, notably  July 2
nnd a when the Chinese developed   unexpected strength   and   did   considerable damage with artillery.
At the bridge near the French settlement there was hard fighting ai
close quarters, the Russians with a
Catling gun eventually compelling
the Chinese to retire, though  the llus-
Blana suffered heavily. The operations,
however, were in no wuy decisive,
later messages showing the Chinese
were still full of fight.
Washington, July 9.���The following
message was received last night, by
Minister Wu. from Sluing. Director
General of the Imperial Telegraphs al
Shanghai, dnted yesterday:
"July .1.���Two Legations in Pekin

Catholic bishop in l'ekin and verbal
reports by other ministers, tlie situation was considered so grave that the
corps unanimously instructed tlie Dean
to present it to the Tsung Li Yanicn,

measures, which he did today by the
nole. a copy of whieli is enclosed.
"I alBO enclose copies of the Bishop's
letters and one from Rev. .Mr. Kcllle,
an American missionary, who lives in
l'ekin, but travels a circuit to the
north and cast. On Ihe lsth insl.,
during au extended personal interview with the Tsung Li Yanicn, 1
called their attention to the fact that,
notwithstanding constant warnings
from this and other Legal ions, the
Boxers had continually increased until now .they are boldly organising
inside the wall of Pekin, Christian
converts are being pei'BOCUtcd and
threatened everywhere, many forced
to recant their religious professions
and some have been compel led to
abandon their chapels and come to
l'ekin for safety.
"I told thcin that at a London mission
near Chon Chow, forty miles west of
l'ekin. two native Christians had been
killed aud the chapel destroyed. Near
Piloting- Fu, a native village has been
. destroyed and sixty-one Christians
murdered, some of them being burned alive.   The   foreign  Governments
can no longer sit idly by and witness
this persecution and murder. I can
only speak for my own Government,
but it is becoming very impatient over
China's Continued treaty violation. It
always has been and still is the good
friend of ('111tin, and only wishes it
prosperity, but it is now more than
ever determined to sustain tlie treaty
rights of all American citizens and of
thc Christian converts and it will hold
the Chinese Government responsible
for every treaty Infraction in this regard.
"It will do Ibis nol only for the
benefit of our own citizens, but in the
interest of China herself, whose Government Is now sadly threatened   by
