HEALTH OF L HUNG CHANG.
A flatter of Grave Concern to Powers.
He Could Not be Replaced.
Pekin, March 17.-The health
of Li Hung Chang is again a
matter of grave consideration to
the ministers of the powers. Mr.
Rockbill, the American special
commissioner, who visited Earl
Li yesterday, says he is a wreck
an apparenty in a state of utter
collapse although mentally as
brilliant as ever. Mr. Rockhill
would not be surprised to hear
of his death at any moment.
The removal of Li Hung Chang
by death or any other cause at
the present moment would be very
unfortunate. M. de Giers, Rus
sian minister, said to-day:
"Li Hung Chang is a great
diplomat, and his influence with
the Chinese court is absolutely
unique. No other man approaches
him in this respect. His influence
is not temporary, but it is par
ticularly effective at important
moments in the history of China
powers object to his political
methiods and regard him as es
sentially a trimmer, nevertheless
they realize that he is the best e
possible man to represent, China
in the present emergency."
Orders have been received by
United States troops to depart
next month, leaving behind only
The Germnan headquarters staff f
assert that their instrtections are I
"a great mistake," alleging that,
it is necessary to retain a large ti
body of foreign troops in the
country for at least two years.
Most of the ministers, however, -1
take a different view of the mat- e
ter, believing that the best course 1I
is to retain a few of the troops of '
eaeh nation and to withdraw the t

Iritsh Do no, Wish to Capture Gen.
London, March 16.-A special
ispatch from Durban, Natal,
ays the Boer commanders are
old g a meeting at Petersburg,
n nortlern Transvaal, to discus
he position and the advisability
f a continuation of the war.
Nhatever the result of the peace
egotiations between Gen. itch
er and Gen. Botha it is tolera
ly certain that the rumors of the
nelusion of Gen. DeWet in any
orm of amnesty are not based on
act. Gen. Kitchener's personal
-iews of the Boer leader are not
known in parliament but if the
war office was consulted the of
cials there would rather see
DeWet killed in action than taken
alive. One of the officials re
apnsible for the direction of the
Xirs-of the army said to a top
resentative of the AssociaMed
Piess; "I cannot see how Kitch
ener can possibly accept DeWet's
surrender. If he ever gets him
he will be obliged to try him for
his recent alleged murders of
prisoners. I have no doubt that
the verdict of either a military or
a civil court would be death and
if such a verdict was carried out
there would be a horrible howl
on the continent and in America.
And, indeed, one would be sorry
to see such a brave fighter meet
such an end. Therefore, we can
only hope DeWet will either got
