THE WAR IN THE EAST.
Captain Langley Describes Somo of
Specal Ccrresj omlenee of the nuu-KTiM
Captain E. V. Latmley, formerly
of Honolulu, HM)(J tlio followinir
notos to tho Bitllktis by tlio S. S.
I'tii. A lottr w wroto to ono of
his friiMjds in Honolulu, which tip
pearod in tliH Bullittix a fiiw weeks
ngo, wus recoivod with reat interest
by our rndcrs. Captain Lv Uy
writes of the situation in his privato
nolo as follows:
I send by this mail all tho latent
nows of tho Oriental war, I don't
rojieinlier if I told you or not that 1
had bueii djwn iu Manilla. One can
Co tlnro and bade, and havo two or
threo days to spare, in a week. It is
about tho saiiu eliiuato as dear
Honolulu, but 1I"iik10UR is a good
ileal (.'older. I folttho change very
much, and inoro especially Yoko
hama, and iu my noithuru trip to
Chrfoo. 1 was j;lad to t back to
HoMk'HiK- You will t-u that tho
laparo well on their way to Peking.
I have kIwm you i brief skoteh of
what l'ort Arthur and Wei-hai-woi
wxre, and anyone who Ins studied
tlio Oriental "war can seo the Japs'
intention now. It is all nonsense to
think that an army man can como
over to China, nnd that they would
only be too glad to employ you. I
know from experience. I havo let
ters iu my p jpm'jmoii to carry tuo to
tho Inchest ollicials iu Chiun, but
what is tho mot They havo uo cou
fldouco iu a European nothing but
dowuriuht jealousy. Look at Von
Ilanneekon, when lie wanted to re
lievo tho garrison of Woi-hai wei be
fore the Japs lauded. A Chinese
general sends a memorial to tho Em
puror, and of course Von Hauueckeu
cannot proceed, and now they talk
of not refunding him his money. 1
havo been entertained by some of
the most iiillueutial and well-educated
Chinese of Hongkong, and
during tho evening nothing but tho
war was talked of. They told mo as
their friend not to ontoitan any
thoughts of going to tho front. I
said, Aro you not in sympathy with
tho present Enperor? Thoy said,
Wo are uot. Nor none of tho edu
cated 'las seems to have any confi
dence in tho present administration
of affairs in China. This is not from
hearsay or paprs. It i actual facts
based upon good, sound sense, and
iu summing up all the experiences
and information in regard to tho
present condition of China, you can
only como to this conclusion: that
the educated class of China has
awakened to tin- fact that tho pres
ent state of alfairs must end and
cease, ami the country must be optsu
od up to tho world. You havo got
to be in China to l.now it.

Taku is a sniill town nituatud nt

Thoro nru two anchorages at tho

impor&t until arrival at that port.
There aro vory few foreigners at
Taku, excepting tho Custom House

Tho town is connected withTioutsiu

placed iu douk was ono belonging
to tho China Merchants' Steam Navi
gation Co. in November, 18S0. Taku
is bast known to tho world by its
famous fort?, constructed for tho de
fense of tho Pei-ho river and tho
port of Tientsin. On May 28, 1851,
the forts wore assailed by tuo liritish
ileet under Sir Michael Seymour,
who succoodod iu forciughis way up
to Tientsiu, where, iu the following
month, Lord Elgin negotiated tho
famous treaty of Tientsin. In 1859
another attompt was made to pass
the Taku forts, but, owing to a num
ber of booms and sunken junLs
placed across tho river by tho Chi
nese, it was unsuccessful, tho liritish
being repulsed with heavy loss. On
tho 121st of August of the succeed
ing yoar, a third attempt was mado
which euded in tho capture of the
forts, and tho destruction of tho
boom, stakes, etc., leaviug Tientsin
