Latest Role of Li Hung Chang As Plenipotentiary
Proposal for Ministers to Leave Peking

(Associated Press Special.)
New York, Aug. 11. A special dupatch to the Tribune from London,
The appointment of LI Hung Chnng as tho Chinese plenipotentiary for
th 1'negotlatlons of torms of pence has been received w Ith various feelings
Thoso who know tho Far East havo deep distrust of tho old Viceroy and
they Insist that his nomination tan bolouio good to this country. It not hos
tile to nil foreigners, ho Is nt any rate detei mined opponent of the llrltis.i,
whom he has always disliked, notwithstanding his past relations with Gen
eral Gordon nnd other Englishmen.
On the other hnnd sonic Chinese experts contend that the appointment
shows that tho Slanchu government, realizing Hint the powers nro In cirn
est, relies upon Earl LI to arrange ternm nnd to patch up an accommodation
as he did nftcr tho Tien Tsln massacres In ISTO.
The latest batch of cipher messages recihc.l from the .Ministers nt Pe
king Is considered to be significant, nnd In Rome degree reassuring Theie
arc determined skeptics nnd croakent. suoli as those who were proldlng .1
month ago circumstantial m counts of nn nllegid wholesale butchery at tin
legations, but not ninth attention Is paid to them. The'" ludom 0 tho Min
isters In declining to leave Peking tuless adequate protection can bo secured
for them Is obvious to everybody. It Hnot. however, regarded as absolutely
certain that the offer 10 esco-t foreigners to Tien Tsln Is really n trap. To
Judge from previous experience of Chinese methods. It Is possible that the
Tsung LI Vanien Intends ultimately to deliver the legation staffs :n safety
to the allied commanders, lui'. It will procrastinate ami pirvnrlcnie as long
as possible, nnd will certainly maintain its hold on the diplomatists while
there seems n remote prospect of using them ns hostages to extort fnorabb
terms of settlement. Whether the Government could In nny caso convey tho
tight hundred engineers, Including women nnd clilldien, unhnrmed, through
the lines of Itoxers nnd the military rabble to a point no one can determine.
Influential men of the Chines-) mercantile company believe the Tsung I.I
Ynmen could do bo If It pleased, because they are firmly convinced that ill
whole antl-forelgn mcnemont bns been deliberately, constructed In tho im
perial palace, which Is still eapaobof controlling the storm It has evoked
The total number of Angln-lndlnntroopt ordeied to Chlnn will not fn'l
far short of 20,000 men, hut without much larger force, which certainly
could not bo spared from England's astern dependency, It will be impossible
to pollco tho whole of tho Ynng-tsc valley. Indeed, the departure) of ths
Ilrltlsh consul from Chung King shown that England for the present will bo
content merely to protect her intertstsat the mouth of the great rUcr.
Sir. Ooodnow's dlspntch stating that Shanghai merchants believe tho
landing of tho Ilrltlsh troops will do mischief by exciting the natives, only
confirm somo misgivings nlre.idy expressed here.
WILL HOLD OUT INDEFINITELY.
(Associated Press Special.)
it Washington, August 11. The following dispatch communicating an 1
it udieltl011.1l message from .Minister Conger was mndo public tills morn-
it Ing by the Stnte Department: a
it "Canton, August 11. Secretary of State, Washington. Conger, dato it
it August 10, Tst-nnn, announcing my message, nays that the legations ..'
it nro under slego by the Imperial soldiery. The situation Is despi'iate. .V
it Tho losses of tho legations Is sixty killed nnd nbout 100 wo.indeil. :i
it Theie Is somo slcknesa.neverctheless tho general health continues good.
W He concludes: "Whatever may be the outcome, wo will hold out In- .'
if definitely." it
It is believed that tho date asslgneel In this despatch iy tho conBiil re
fers to the fllo date when tho mcssige left Tsl-nan nnd does not fix tho tlmo
when It left Peking by courier.
While the State Department does not attempt to fix n dato upon whtrh
the Conger message left Peking, tho officials are Inclined to bcllovo that It,
was ono of tho messages smuggled out of Peking before tho Imperial edict
was Issued removing tho restriction upon tinnsmlsslnn of the cipher messages.
The date on tho messngo Is August 5th. There Is little new In the mesnge lie
yond tho ominous reiteration of Mr. Congcr'R statement that tho condition
was desperate. Tho concluding sent'iice of Sir. Conger's message, saying that
the legatloners nro prepared t hold 011 liulefinltely no matter what tho out
como may be, Is considered gratifying Intelligence, because It Indicates that
tho besieged Sllnlsters nro not growing faint hearted and will stand out '.0
tho bitter end. This message, like thnnthers Hint have precided It, contains
no Intimation that nny of the numerous messages forwarded by this gov
ernment havo reachcil tho beleaguerel foreigners from the Chinese capital.
