England and Russia Said to
Have Reached Agreement
Anxiety Over the Trncnn nl Tien Tutu 1oc
Not Almte Troulilo Due to Clilnmo Ju
trnmrnt Granting bumo CoiilvsiIoii to
Two Nullum
London March 20 Some of the aft
ernoon newspapers say the Tien Tsln
difficulty has been arranged
The misunderstanding was due to the
Chinese authorities granting the
same concession to two nations The
arrangement enables Great Britain to
proceed with the construction of the
railroad siding hut If Russias conces
sion proves to he earlier than that of
Great Hrltaln the latter Is to acknowl
edge the claims of Russia
The foreign olllce however has no
information tending to confirm the an
nouncement of an arrangement hav
ing been made and the ofllclals are
rather Inclined to doubt that such an
arrangement has been arrived at They
Miy the original concession was given
up by Russia
Tien Tsln March 20 Th excite
ment nnil anxiety here as to the pos
sible development of the Anglo-Russian
siding dispute do not abate A
company of British troops and n com
pnny of Russian soldiers remain en
camped on either side of the trench
looking at each other The Russians
have orders to fire on any one com
mencing work
General Wogaoh says the trouble
was caused by the unwarrantable inter
ference In the affairs of the Russian
concession and ho adds that the sid
ing will not be continued unless be re
ceives orders from his own superiors
Field Marshal Count von Waldcrsoc
Is expected heie soon Roth sides will
appeal to him but they both consider
the matter to be beyond his authority
and will await orders from Europe
Attack on KnglUh Troops Win AgnluAt
Orilum of Their Gcnernl
Tien Tsln March 20 Speaking of
the attack made by a number of ex
cited French soldiers on some of the
members of the British Sikh regiment
Sunday in the French concession Gen
eral Lorno Campbell says it was mere
ly n childish outbieak against the or
ders of their own general who had for
bidden the French soldiers to enter the
British concession The order fol
lowed a request made by General
Lome Campbell after almost every res
ident had complained of the behavior
of the French in insulting women re
fusing to pay for purchases acting
riotously and abusing American and
Kngllsh soldiers
General Voyron the French com
mander recognized that this must stop
and ordered the French soldiers to keep
In their own concession General
Lome Campbell was perfectly satisfied
that General Voyron was In harmony
with himself and anxious to maintain
order Mnior Foote Ninth United
States Infantry says the French sol
diers were frequently abusive to the
American troops who were unarmed
while out on pas while the French
were armed with swords or bayonets
On one occasion an American dis
armed a Frenchman and turned over
his weapon to the sergeant of the
guard explaining satisfactorily his
reasons for the action taken
