Slnco tho election of the delegates to
the Territorial Convention from tho
Fourth District, nil sorts of talk re
garding the "machlno" has been going
urouiid. To set the matter cleur In ths i
, minds of those who do not know of
what has been going on among the del
egates, It might bo stated that, at a
; caucus held recently, it was agreed
that tho so-called "minority" faction
I should bo given a one-third represen
tation In the Territorial Convention.
I Later on, the minority, counting on
1 a one-third representation, tried to
rule tlic majority. The various ways In
which this spirit was shown need not!
i be montloned. At all events, tho inn.- ,

It Is said, howeter, that the answnrs go much beyond the tentative '
character of those heretofore referred to and are of a conclusive na- ft
ture.. so f.ir as showing the purponof the governments, although A1
they may not be regarded us toiuluslvo In accepting or rejecting tlio ;l

very fact is a cuuo fcr cougiat ilatlon among tlio olllcials, ns Ihey
point out that there is no disposition to treat the proposal with terse- it
ness or In any manner to give offenso, but rather to bring the Power i
together on a common basin. tf
On tho whole tho general tendency of tho responses Is such ns to
glvo entire satisfaction lino us to the course of tho negotiation,". '4
Tho satisfactory progress of tho negotiations along thi'so lines Inn !'.1
had tho effect of directing attention to the personality of the envoys if
who will probably represent the Powers and China In the final settle-
Tho Impression prevails here that Mr. Conger Is eminently fitted for ft
.such n task on tho part of tnc United States, suppot'.iig that each of ft
tho Powers Interested In tho Chlnesd problem Is to have a separate V.'
iV- and Individual representative. Mr. Rockhlll's nanio is mentioned as
! nn alternate In caso Sir. Conger does not care to remain In Peking, or H
it to participate in tho settlement. These suggestions, however, uro all it
it speculative, for up to this time tho State Department has not conferr- it
it ed tho necessary special powers hut upon any person to represent this it
it Government In tho final negotiations. '
If tho present state ofaffalrs In Chlnals protracted until tho arrival time
of Field Marshal Count von Wnlder- see, which should occur In about ten
days or a fortnight, it Is not to be doubted that the Government of Germiny
will endeavor to have all the negothtions with tho Chinese Government
conducted through that official as it representative, not only of Germany
alone, but of nil tho Powers. It Is gathered that strong arguments will be ad
vanced to support the advisability of combined action through one agency
In this manner na tho best meanB of securing a speedy and generally satisfac
tory termination of tho Chlneso trouble In fnct, It will bo urged that thero
Is little hope for an early adjustment rf the illfllculty between the Poweis and
China If each of the Powers Is to luy down an Independent proposition, ho
clumlnntlvc effect of which, particularly In the case of money or territorial
Indemnities might be absolutely crushing to the Chinese empire.
If thero is nny change In tlio military situation since General Chaffee's
dispatch, supposed to be of the 30th, no word of It has reached Washington.
It is understood that tlio disturbances and outrages upon missionaries con
tinue In somo of tho districts outside of Peking. It Is belloved here, possibly
because, of these roports, that tho foiotgn ministers In Peking probably will
enter an earnest objection to any withdrawal of troops If their respective
governments delay acttdn upon tho Russian proposition until they bavo hail
a chance to oxpress their views.
Tho German foreign ofllco appears to bo actlvo In furthering tho negotia
tlons and quite a number of messages bavo passed between Washington and
Derlln. Those persons have named Yung Lit and Hsl Tung In place of tin
two Pacific viceroys. Dut whllo thero Is doubt as to tho personnel of tho com
mission ,tt Is quite generally accepted among olllcials that some such move
on tho part of China hag matured and w III take form in Washington very
soon. In that event, it Is believed b) diplomatic olllcials that the entire
status of tho negotiations between the Powers might bo changed und that
Russia no longer would feel Impcllcl to Insist upon the withdrawal of her
Minister and troops from Peking, as all theso matters would be subjects fr,r
the commission Itself to deal with. It Is pointed out also that in the six days
slnco the Russian-American notes vveio given to the world tho sentiment hat
been growing Bteadily in favor of continuing tho presenco of troops at Pe
king. In vlow of tho declaration mndo lu tho American reply to Russia some
questions havo arisen as to tho course open to this country In caso of n com
promise or chango in tho present diplomatic status. It Is said that tho atti
tude, of tho United States ' partlculaily fa vol able for adapting Itself to any
chango In conditions. Only In the contingency of Russia's withdrawing
her Minister and troops has this Government glvtn tho positive declaration
that tho American troops also will bo withdrawn. Dut ou Ihe many nthor
conditions which may arise, cither through counter propositions from the
Powers, or by a notification of Russia's original purpose, tho United States
has left Is courso open for future determination.
