The General Situation.
SHANGHAI. Aug. 6.— (New York
World Cablegram.)—An Imperial edict
has been issued, providing for the es
cort of the diplomatic corps to Tien
Tsin by a high official, rendering fur
ther action for their relief by the al
lied forces unnecessary.
This is the first step towards the
solution of the situation.
PARIS. Aug 6.— (New York World
Cablegram.)—China has backed down
squarely before the United States.
The American secretary ct state ca
bled an ultimatum August 1, demand
ing free communication with Minister
The vpry next day a Chinese Impe
rial edict was Issued, ordering that
the envoys have free communication
with their governments.
The news of China’s Instant knuck
ling to the United States when mat
ters came to a climax was received
here in a special dispatch dated yes- i
teiday to Temps, a newspaper of thp
highest reputation for conservatism
and accuracy of information.
That dispatch, dated from Shanghai,
announced that Sheng, the director j
general of Chinese railways and tele
graphs, had just communicated to the
foreign consuls there ‘‘an imperial de
cree, dated August 2, authorizing the I
foreign ministers in Pekin to commu
nicate without restriction with their
governments and ordering their de
parture for Tien Tsin under a govern
ment escort."
No message has boon sent out since |
that date by Mr. Conger or any of the
other envoys, but one may he expected
at any hour.
The Shanghai correspondent of the
Temps, telegraphing today, also says:
"The number of allies leaving Tien
Tsin is no better known here than are
_ the facts as to the march itself, hut
' it is rumored that the advance guard
had been repulsed.
"f,l Ping Heng*t i*, ut r governor of
Shan Tung l. who is Intensely hostile
to Europeans, has been named com
mander of the Chinese forces."
The French foreign ministry has re
reived the following dispatch from the
French consul at Che Foo, dated Au
gust 2: “The governor of Moukdon
in a proclamation has urged the peo
ple of Manchuria to massacre Chris
tians. Nearly all the missions have
been destroyed. The missionaries
have organized for defense, and are
assisted by other Christians."
The French consul at Shanghai, tel
egraphing Saturday, says: "LI Hung
Chang informs me that Li Ping Ileng
was appointed general of the troops
in the north of the empire on his ar
rival at Pekin.”

LONDON, Aug. <i.—TT)'> American
and British forces began the advance
on Pekin last Thursday. according to
a dispatch dated August 2 from Tien
Tsin to the Daily Expresss.
“The iualu body of the allies,” con
tinues the correspondent, “marched on
July 30. General Chaffee was delayed
by difficulties of disembarkation. Gen
eral Dorward, the British commander,
had no such obstacles and his de
lay is Inexplicable.
“The other foreign troops are now
half way to Loofa. The force includes
20,000 Japanese under General Yama
chuehi and 10,000 Russians. The Brit
ish force totals 9,000 and the other for
eign troops number 7,000. We are
weak in artillery.
"Oil August 1 a strong force of Chi
nese from the native city attacked
Tien Tsin. By a series of brilliant
charges our troops drove the enemy
from their positions. The naitve city
is still defiant and the allies are un
willing to march troops through its
streets, as this would mean an im
mense slaughter. When the Chinese
saw so large a body of troops march
ing westward they apparently believed
they would have an easy victory over
those who were left."

manding troops Pekin. He ordered

••CHE FOO, Afternoon, Aug. 2 —Sec
retary of State, Washington: Just re
ceived telegram from governor of Shan
Tung, requesting me to transmit to you
the following: ‘Have just received tele
gram. dated July 30, tsung li yamen,
stating various ministers, the German
legation, and others (foreigners) all
well; not in distress. Provisions were
repeatedly sent. Relations most friend
ly. Now conferring us to proper
measures to protect various ministers
to Tien Tain for temporary shelter,
which conference will soon l>e ended.
“ ‘YUAN, Governor.’
Li Hung Chang's answer to Secre
tary Hay's peremptory demand of Au
gust 1, to be put in communication
with the foreign ministers at Pekin,
is evasive and not final and leaves
the matter open to diplomacy. But
Li’s action, as reported by Consul
General Goodnow, are undoubtedly
sinister and will amount to a rejec
tion of the proposition. Mr. Good
now’s dispatch contains some further
information bearing on the question
of responsibility for Pekin conditions,
in the statement that the commander
of the Chinese troops, by inference an
swerable to the Chinese government,
ordered the Pao Ting massacre. It
is learned here that Li Ping Hong, 1
the commander referred to, is a civil
official and well known to ull the Chi
nese officials abroad as one of the
most rabid anti-foreign leaders in
China. He Is a close friend of Prince
Tuan, and the association of these
two in Pekin affairs, with power
enough behind them to cause the igno
minious death of two high officials, is
regarded here as a bad sign.
Simultaneously with Mr. Goodnow’s
dispatch came a characteristically dip
lomatic message from Yuan Sliih Kai,
the governor of Shan Tung, repeat
ing the story of two days ago that the
Chinese government was arranging to
deliver the ministers in safety at Tien
Tsin. No effort is made to reconcile
that statement with Earl Li's refusal
to allow communication with the min
General Chaffee's message as to the
unexpected resistance of Chinese re
connaissance Is regarded by military
men here as forecasting a greater de
gree of resistance to military move
ments than had been expected and
they are now satisfied that Chinese
troops will furnish material fo; at
least one severe battle before the way
is clear to Pekin.
The Navy department today issued
an order for the co-operation of its
officers abroad with the officers of the
army in landing and transporting
troops destined for Chinese service.
This revives the situation that ex
isted in Cuba when Shatter's army was
landed largely through the efforts of
the navy.

that at once. No orders, therefore,

The Impression prevails here that
the Chinese government, if it Is now
absolutely bereft of power to act In
defiance of the Boxers, will accept
the terms of the United States gov

ed for very soon. Possibly a battle,
not more, it <s believed, than one at
most, will be required to bring the

acceptance, though In that case It Is
questionable whether the original con

to acceptance.

LONDON, Aug. 2.—Dr. George Ern
est Morrison, the Pekin correspondent
of the Times, has been heard from di
rect. The Times prints the following
dispatch from him, dated July 21:
"There has been a cessation of hos
tilities here (Pekin) since July 18, but
for fear of treachery there has been no
relaxation of vigilance. The Chinese
soldiers continue to strengthen the
barricades around the besieged nrca
and also the batteries on top of the im
perial city wall, but in the meantime
they have discontinued firing, probably
because they are short of ammunition.
"Tlie main bodies of the imperial
soldiers have left Pekin in order to
meet the relief forces. Supplies are be
ginning to come in and the condition
of the besieged is improving. The
wounded arc* doing well. Our hospital
arrangnients are admirable and 150
cases have passed through the hospi
"The tsung li yamen forwarded to
Sir Claude MacDonald a copy of a dis
patch telegraphed by the emperor to
Queen Victoria, attributing deeds of
violence to bandits and requesting her
majesty’s assistance to extricate the
Chinese government from its difficul
ties. The queen’s reply is not stated,
but the Chinese minister at Washing
ton telegraphs that the I'nited Stab e
government would gladly assist the
Chinese authorities.
"This dispatch to the queen was sent
to the tsung li yamen by the grand
council on July 3. yet the day before
an imperial edict had been issued cull
ing on the uoxers to continue to ren
der loyal and patriotic services in ex
terminating the Christians. The edict
also commanded viceroys ana govern
ors to expel all missionaries from
China and to arrest all Christians and
compel them lo renounce all their
faith. Other decrees applauding the
Uoxers speak approvingly of their
burning out and slaying converts.
Their leaders are stated In a decree
to be princes and ministers.
"On July 18 another decree made a
complete volte face due to the victories
of the foreign troops at Tien i sin. In
this decree, for the first time and one
month after the occurrence, an allu
sion was made to the death of Baron
von Ketteler, the German minister,
which was attributed to the action of
local brigands, although there is no
doubt that it was premeditated and
that the assassination was committed
by an imperial officer, as the survivor,
Herr Cordes, can testify.
"The force besieging the legation
consists of the imperial troops under
General Tung Lu and General Tung
Fuh Slang, whose gallantry Is applaud
ed in imperial decrees, although it has
consisted in bombarding for one month
defenseless women and children cooped
up in the legation s.tot and expanding
bullets. The Chinese throughout, with
characteristic treachery, posted procla
mations assuring us of protection and
the same night they made a general
attack in the hope of surprising us.
“The wounded number 138, including
the American surgeon. IJppitt, severe
ly wounded, Captain Myers, who is
doing well. Seven Americans have
been killed.
"The ministers and members of the
legations and theiF families are in
good health. The general health of the
community Is excellent and we are
contentedly awaiting relief.”
