Although the garrison of Kiao Chow la

to be formidable. Since the war began the
harbor lias been mined and the, land de
fenses strengthened with wire entangle

Many Chinese coolies have been em
ployed besides the troops of the garrison.
Tho elgiitlon quarter In Peking Is deeply
affecteel by the prospect because many
of the German and British officers who
will participate in tho lighting have been
members of Peking society during their
terms of service In tho legation guards.
Young German business men who have
gone as reservists have many Lnglish
friends in the various treaty ports.
There being no German laborers In
China, prsctically all the reservists are
