PEKIN , Dec. 10. All the foreign
envoys except Sir Ernest Mason Sa-
tow , the British minister , have re
ceived Instructions from their govern
ments agreeing to the joint note , pro
posed at the last meeting.
Another meeting will probably be
called for Tuesday next. Should the

mediately opened with Prince Chlng

dally touch with the court by the

sured that the negotiations will allow
him to come under conditions consonant

The removal of General Tung
Hfllang from the command of the Chi
nese forces surrounding the court Is
considered by the foreign envoys to
be u very Important stop , as Indicat
ing the real desire of the government
to come to terms. Fu Hslang's ban

ognizes the expediency of obeying the
demands of the powers.

WASHINGTON , Dec. 10. The next
Important step In the Chinese sltui-
tlon will bo the formal presentation
to the Chinese plenipotentiaries of the
agreement arrived at between the rep
resentatives of the powers at Pekln
nor reparation for the Boxer outrages.
In just what manner this will bo
: lone. Mr. Conger has not Informed
ho state department , although the
probability Is that the document will
> o handed to the Chinese by the dean
of the diplomatic corps.
As has been stated already , the
agreement Is simply a statement of
ho terms upon which the powers will
negotiate with China for a final sct-
lomont , and is laid before the Chi
nese officials as a matter of form.
The negotiations for final settlement
will come later , after the i Chinese
invo boon given a reasonable oppor-
.unlty for the consideration of the
conditions laid down by the powers.
The complete agreement deciphered
rom the code Is now In the hands
of the president. Officials decline to
make Its text ' public In advance of the
receipt of'information that It has
been formally accepted by the powers ,
although the advices which have hcro-
ofore come from Mr. Conger leaves
no doubt that this will bo the caso.
The essential features of the agree
ment already have been outlined In
the press dispatches.

said that wo would be content to al

wake of the ship bill.
Three or four set speeches are prom

and It la expected that most , If not

The legislative appropriation bill Is
not expected to consume more than

First That the empress and her ad

Second That the emperor , who is
a friend of foreigners , should bo "re
Third That nil reactionary officials
should be arrested and that a careful

The emperor's party consists of the

Kang Yu Wei points out that ho was
appointed for the task by a secret edict
of the emperor in 1898 , when ho made
his appeal on behalf of the .emperor to
