Situation is Complicated.
^-London, July 31.—A member of
the Chinese legation gave au extended interview to the Associated
Press today, in which ho said: "1
am exceedingly glad that your official dispatches today have borne
out our repeated assurances, which
I knew from the first were sincerely meant. I knew that while
the Chinese emperor could avoid
making a statement of facts, such
facts as he stated and states, must
be true.
"I hope that tho recommendation
made by Li Hung Chang that the
ministers should either be sent to
.Tien-Tsin or be placed in telegraphic
communication with their governments will obtain. I am a great
friend of sir Robert Hart, and I
knew that he was still alive, but I
wanted to convince his friends in
this country, and I tried hard to
get a cipher telegram from him. Ac
last being told that the legations
were surrounded, and that it Avas
impossible to get in or out without
" the permission of the throne. I
immediately applied'to the throne
and hope to get permission in a few
days. Consequently you may soon
hope to hear direct from the
"It must be borne iu mind that
besides the Boxers, there is a large
force of irregular troops in Pekin,
neither regular or. rebels, but very
dangerous to the imperial government.
C'S see much talk of vengeance
upon the Chinese. If you could
, secure those who arc actually responsible for the Boxer movement
I would say nothing, but is it possible for the allies to make the
selection? .        . / "      -    '
"Li Hung Chang's statement that
the lives of. the ministers would be
• endangered by such an advance,-is
not* a piece of diplomacy, but .a
- serious prediction of the consequences of such an action.
"General Lung Fu Siang is known
to. be anti-foreign in his sentiments,
but;'we cannot dispense with his,
services, and, having,a>-large^nurarr
■'ber of soldiers under' him," he might
•-Ordelf.a European massacre which
, the emperor and empress .would be
unable to prevent.
"My object now is to advise the
allies not to do au act of vengeance,
but. to restore peace and secure
guarantees for the future. This
can be done by co-operating with
Li Hung Chang. If you push on
to Pekin; I believe you ,will provoke
a general rising throughout the
empire, the result of which will be
tho destruction of the lives and
property of foreigners everywhere."
An Hystencal Female.
New York, July 31.—Several
hundred persons jeered and followed Miss Ernesta Gravelle, the young
woman who professes to be an anarchist, when at noon today she left
the silk .mills   in Patterson,_New_
Jersey, where slie worked (for home
for lunch. She reached home breath-
\-_. and badly frightened. Policemen dispersed her tormeuters. She
said afterwards of king Humbert's
assassination and .his slayer, " "I
feel like Bressi" 'who did what ,he
did because he thought of others,
not himself. Now that the king is
dead they say he was a great, good
man.. He was not good. He
treated the poor badly. 1 belong
to that group. To say that we
talk of killing the president or any
one else is not true. We do not
plot to kill kings. When a brother
kills a king The plans it himself.
What good would it do to kill McKiniey?" _______

reau, has received the following
from M; de Gartier de Marchienne,
secretary of the Belgian legation in
China, but now in Shang-Hai,

German Official Opinion.
Berlin, July 81.—Hope regarding the security of the foreigners in
Pekin now runs high. The German
foreign office no longer doubts,that
1 all the ministers, except baron von
Ketteler,  are alive.     The papers j
take the same view and urge that
there be no delay in the advance
upon Pekin. The foreign office is
mortified at the failure 7.to
agree, .upon a commander-
in-chief of , the allied forces.
The Chinese' minister, Li Hai Huan,
received today a dispatch purporting to come from the Pekin government, saying the foreign legationers would be sent to Tien-Tsin
whenever the preparations for their
safe escort "were completed and
open hostilities ceased. This dispatch .was transmitted to the German foreign office.

"By a supreme effort we are still

longer! * ■
"The emperor and empress dowager appear ,to, be still at Pekin.

flee to *Wah Shoshan., The "killed

Six Hundred Hostages.
Rome, August 1.—A dispatch received here says: "The Chinese government is detaining 600 Europeans
as hostages including the ministers
and their families as well as the
members of the legations." It is
believed here that when the war is
officially declared, these will be
ordered to leave Pekin within
twenty-four hours. They will then
bo at the jmercy of the Boxers.
China, it is thought, will consider
that war has been declared as soon
as the allies begin ...to march on
Pekin. |(
Swear Allegiance to; King Victor.
] Rome,; July 31.—All the Italian
troops took the oath1! of allegiance

Military," Situation in China.
London, August 1.—4 a.m.—A
sensational Shang-Hai correspondent still<hin$& that the Chinese are
juggling wita*the mails, but in the
face of the* constantly accumulating evidence that the ministers
were safe" bn^ July 22nd, and despite the omission from all the dispatches of the anxiously desired information regarding the veal situation political and otherwise at Pekin,
there are very few in London who
do not believe the dispatches are
genuine and reliable.
The allies. how confront a most
difficult and'Vdangerous problem.
Without doubt, the ministers are
held, by the Chinese as hostages,
and .the outcome of the advance on
_Pekin; which m all'probability has
begun, will be awaited with anxietv.
Today's dispaiches show'that the
allies,, nbtabljr-^the Japanese, have
beeii'-'T pushing^ their preparations
with; feverish^ haste", organizing, a

China, whom:,emperor, William has
ijust promoted:'to the rank of general commanding an army corps,

Join Forces Against -Boxers.
Washington, July 31—Doubt has
has given way to a feeling akin to
certainty that the legations at Pekin and the gallant marines who
managed to reach the Chinese capital just in the nick of time, were
not only alive on July 22nd, but in
all probability are still alive and
likely to remain so until they.are
released from their stage of siege.
The, officials here, while anxious
that the movement on Pekin should
begin at once, do not attach credence to the -rumor mentioned by
general Chafee that the forward
march was to begin today.
A rather startling proposition
was advanced _ today, which,'' if
adopted, tnightputatonce to the test
the Chinese profession that the
Boxers c and not the Chinese government are responsible for "what
has happened in Pekiu. This was to,
the effect that the Chinese govern-'
ment should be informed that the
international forces were prepared
to take that government at its
word, and to join forces with it in
crushing out the insurrection. The
kernel of just such a proposition is
to be found in the last condition
laid' down ay the president in his
reply to the appeal of the emperor
Hsu, and there may be a development in that direction speedily.
It is' also ■ possible''. that the * ad
vance of .the allies will be the signal,
for the Chinese authorities to compel all foreigners to rtjuit the capital, in which * event '"they will become the prey of the Boxers.
' The feeling of the newspapers
here is that nothing whatever
should now delay the advance, and
that no negotiations of any kind
should be countenanced until the
allied troops reach Pekin and assure
themselves regarding the fate of
the foreigners:

King Humbert's Assassin.
Geneva, July 31.—In spite of all
their efforts the police have not
succeeded in identifying the assassin of king .Humbert as the man
Bressi who was watched here in
1898.. The authorities -are only
able to affirm one thing, namely
that the Geneva anarchists, who
are mostly Italians, are in regular
correspondence with their countrymen in Paterson, New Jersey, from
which point all orders come. In
view of the attitude of Luccheni,
when questioned about Bressi and
the Paterson group, the police are
assured that the crimes of recent
years have been the successive
phases of a plot.

The smeiter rate of the Granby  company's big plant at Grand Forks  has been given out and it is so low  that almost any property in the district that has ore at all can have its  product treated at a profit.  Jay P. Graves stated that the  operators of almost every property  of note in the district had requested  a statement of the proposed charges  for the reduction of their ore and in  each case a rate ranging between  $3.50 and $4.50 per ton for freight  and treatment had been quoted.  This low rate is made possible by  the good arrangements made between the smelter company and the  C.'P. R. and it is expected that with'  the enlargement and improvement  of the plant a rate perhaps even  lower than that quoted can be made.  Mr. Miner lias stated that the  mines of his syndicate at Phoenix  would alone ship 1000 tons of ore  per day when fully [operating and  that the company expected to  eventually be able to treat $5 ore  at a profit.

Our military attaches  are abroad for the same purpose.  They're just spies in peace time.  Why, I remember when cordite  came out how one of the continental war offices sent a gunner officer  over here���they said to learn English. I know the man at Woolwich  who gave him the cordite, and how  much he got for it. I know the  Englishman who found the man at  Woolwich who wou'.'d do the job.  I  know how much moro he got for it.  But would I breathe the name of  that continental power to make international complications ? Not me.  T know better what's due ��� to my  country. " All which leads'up'-to  this..  When I was at Hythe qualifying  for two guns and a crown over my  three stripes   there   was   a   great  -myster-y-aboi!t-the-Maxim;-in-fact,-  we who were undergoing instructions were never shown the mechanism of the block.    The instructor  of the Hythe staff used always to  take that out of the gun and hold  it behind him while he explained  the   other   parts.    And  that was  what made me curious to see the  block.    T was working very hard in  the evenings; yet for my health's  sake I had to walk now and then  into Polkstone and along tho Leas.  And there I met a young foreign  person,  who   told me   she   was a  lady's maid.     How did I make her  acquaintance ?   If you do not know  a simple little thing like that, you  ought to.   We learn in the army  the art of mixing gracefully in female society.  And the young foreign person,  who spoke English beautifully, said  to me one evening, as we were sitting in a quiet spot away from other  people and away from gas lamps :  "I do love to hear about all that  concerns you. Tell me all about  what you do at the school of musketry."  " 'Oh, it's all very simple, Mam-  selle," said I. Then just to show  her what a clever fellow I was, I  began to give her a full account of  all the difficult things we had to do.  And, of course, among other things  I spoke of the machine guns.'  " 'Those are the horrid things that  go crk-crk-crk-crk, are ��� they not ?"  asked she, as she imitated perfectly  the venomous spit of the beasts.  " 'That's it.'  " 'Tell me about them.   I thhik'  the   are   wonderfully   interesting.  How well educated a soldier has to I  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  - J. M. LAY, Manager.  be nowadays to understand such  things!'  " [It's quite true that a first-class  certificate of education, which a  sergeant is now bound to have, is  not for the asking.' Then I went  on to tell her the mechanism of the  Maxim.  , " 'But the funniest thing about it  all is that they won't let us see the  -worksof-the-block, although-we are-  to qualify for musketry instructors.'  " 'And  of the  most   important  part of the gun you know nothing?'  " 'I have a general idea.'  " 'A man who is as clever as you  in   mechanics    and    mathematics  ought to know all about it. I should  be curious to know if I wore you.'  " 'I could easily find out all about  it if I cared to take the trouble.'  " 'Trouble!   What is trouble to a  scientific man?    If I were you I  should think nothing of any little  trouble.   Now, I will spur you for  your own good and to advance you  in the service.     I am curious, for  your sake, to know about the gun.  I'll bet you what you like you don't  explain the mechanism of the block  to me within a month.     Your explanations    make   even   dry   old  figures interesting.'  i* 'And I can name the "stakes ?'  " 'Certainly.'  " 'A kiss, then.'  " 'I can't befc you that.'  " 'But I was to name the stakes.'  " 'Oh, I couldn't think of it.'  " 'There's   no   need   for you to  think of it, Mamselle.   You've only  to do it.    I have your word, you  know.   If you are honorable���'  " 'Sir!'     *  "'Then the bet is off?'  " 'No.   I gave you my word.    It  is annoying.    But I will keep my  word.'  " 'And I can give you my word  that I shall win. So, perhaps, in  case you change your mind, I had  better have the kiss now.'  "The rest of the evening has nothing to do with the story.  "Now, I had been working hard  at the mechanics of guns before I  went to the school of musketry, so  that 1 might do well.;  And I had a  natural taste for such things in the  blood,, probably because my aunt  married a smith, to whom I was to  have been bound apprentice, only I  would none of him and his smithy.  So you only had to show me the  cocoanut   in    gunnery   mechanics  , and I. tumbled to what kind of milk  was inside.   The next Maxim day  we were   gathered round the instructor, who was reeling out his  Maxim yarn.   He   had taken out  the block, and was holding it in his  fingers behind-liis back.    I had my  notebook in my hand, and I slipped  behind him.   In a very few moments I had a sketch of all that appeared on the surface, and a very  good idea of what was beneath it.  "That-evening-1    was    sitting"  among a lot of other men who were  swotting for the exam.   I had a  sheet   of   foolscap and was   busy  making a sketch of the action in  India ink.  - " 'Hallo, young man,' said the instructor, who had been looking  over my shoulder unbeknown to  me, 'what have you got -there?'  " 'You ought to know as well as,  if not better than 1, sergeant-instructor.'  " I do know.    But where did you  get'ib?'  " 'That's my business.'  " 'Weill you must give it up.'  " 'Oh, no, I shan't.*  " But you must.'' -  " 'It's mine, and you can't take it  away from me.'  " 'We'll see what lieutenant  Brown says about that.'  " 'If lieutenant Brown says I  must give it up I will. But not  unless.'  " 'Come along then to his quarters.'  " 'This is sergeant Harding, Duke  of Cornwall's Light Infantry, sir,-  said the sergeant-instructor, when  he reached lieutenant Brown's  room. 'He has a sketch of the  Maxim secret action, and refuses to  give it up.'  " 'How's this sergeant Harding?'  asked lieutenant Brown.  " 'The sketch is my own, sir. I  refused to give it to the sergeant-  instructor, but said I would give it  up at once, if you ordered me. But  I have made one sketch, and, if you  take that away from me, I. have  the action in my mind, and can always make another sketch.' j  '"That's quite true. Yet such  things had better not be knocking  about. You will destroy the sketch  sergeant Harding ?'  ,' 'Yes,' thought I, 'when  I have  I have shown it and won my bet.'  " 'And how did you get hold of  it?'  "'Must I tell you, sir?'  " 'Yes.'  " 'I took it down in my notebook  while the sergeant-instructor held  the block behind his back.'  "The sergeant-instructor looked  foolish, and lieutenant Brown  drawled :  " 'I think, sergeant-instructor,  you had better have settled this  little matter without appealing to  me.    Good night, both.'  "The sergeant instructor was too  upset to want to see the, sketch de-  stroyed. Host very little time in  strolling down to that quiet spot  where I might chance to light on  Mam'selle. Not that, in view of  what is to come, I wish in any way  to say, or to hint, or to imply that  she was French. Far from it. I  used the name 'Mam'selle' as meaning a young, foreign person, as a  sailor uses 'Dutchman' to mean a  foreign sailor, usually a Norwegian  or a Swede.   She was there.  " 'Good evening, Mam'selle, said I.  'Had you any idea of going on the  pier this evening, or do you prefer  to stop quietly here ?"  " 'To stop here, 1 think; that is,'  she said hurriedly���I wonder why���  'if you're going to behave yourself  properly.'  " Well,' said I, 'as I've won my  bet, I think I may as well collect  the stakes.!  " You've won ?     You   know   all  about the Maxim ?' asked  she, so  excitedly that her  words  tumbled  one over the other.   ���  " *I have told you so.'  " 'Yes; but you are sure ?'  " 'Quite.     I have an India ink  sketch of it on me.'  " 'Let me see it���let me see it,'  she replied.   And her eyes gleamed.  " 'Quite so,' said I.    'Seeing's believing���but I should like to collect  my stakes.'  "No longer coy, she flung her arms  around my neck and kissed me till I  had no breath with which to repay  her kisses. But she herself had  breath enough to gasp :  " 'Give me the paper.'  "1 put my hand in the breast  pocket of my serge, which I always  used to wear under my greatcoat.  I began to pull out the drawing.  Just then I heard the drawling  voice of lieutenant' Brown come  from the darkness���for we were in  a very quiet and cosey corner.  " 'I thought as much, Sergeant  Harding. You are under arrest.  Follow me to quarters.'  "I turned toward the voice; and  then toward Mam'selle���or toward  where she had been, for,, she was  gone.  "I rose aud saluted.  " 'May I ask you, sir��� ?'  " 'You're a lucky man tnat I had  a suspicion of   the facts.    You're  fool enough to do a lot of harm,  but too big a fool to know you're  doing it.    You Cornish chough, do  you   believe one of  the prettiest  women in Folkestone and one of  _the_cleverest_women_inthe-world-is=  in love with you?
