The best description of tho terribly
Tlcn Tsln siege that has been publish
cd comes from tho pen ot Mr. I'fliiC3r.r,
tho advance agent of Warren's circus
that was an unwilling participant In
Chinese troubles. I'flueger went to
Tlcn Tsln In advance of his company
nnd gives lite experiences as follows
In the Hongkong Telegraph:
"I reached Tlcn Tsln," he said, "tV3
weeks ahead of the show, on May 28th
There was nothing unusual there at all
then. About a week after my nrrlvnl
there wero rumors of robbers and link
ers. Tho rumors were considered wor
thy of no attention by tho French .nnd
United States Consuls; all sorts of
stories wero of course current on the
streets. On the 4th of Juno a detain
ment of twenty-flvo American marines
landed from a mud barge by the Astor
House, and next day twenty-five Urlt
Ish marines landed, followed by flf'y
Germans, Borne forty Italians and thir
ty Austrlan8. They constituted the de
fense of Tien Tsln, with about sixty
three volunteers. Even then no scrl
oils trouble was expected, she troops
being looked upon merely as a guard.
The first Incident ot significance took
lies. Ho was at tho railway station
of June, when the relict column camn
The Imperial railways at Tien Tsln
nre coverneil bv Mr. Tone, who had al
ways been a friend to foreigners nnd
claimed to be strictly neutral. lie In
now a prisoner in a house with 200
other influential Chlnso nnd their fami
lies. He was at tli crallway station
when tho troops camo up under Cap
tain linyley, Who was in command of
tho British forco of Admiral Seymour
In Tien TBln. The men had come down
to go as a relief expedition to Peking,
nnd numbered soventy-fivo of each na
tionality. Captain Daylcy demanded
a train from Tong, who refused and
defied Jhe officer to take one. Cnptaln
Bayley used some strong Anglo-Saxon
and threatened to hang Tong to ono
of' his bridges. Mr. Tong said, "You
are nssumlng nn awful responsibility,"
nnd tho captain replied that ho would
assume It. He then ordered a bayonet
charge on the rallwny shed. The troops
got a train out, equipped It, and sent
It out at 4 p. m. that day. On Monday,
the ljtb, and Tuesday, the 12th, small
fires In the native city were easily
vlslblo from the towers of Ooron Hall.
On Wednesday night they assumed
greater magnltudo, and on Thursday
and Friday the placo wai one vast sin
of firo. It looked to mo as It tho whole
place was destroyed, but I am told it
was not. On Friday night tho French
Cathedral and mission churches wero
It was reported that the Viceroy'.)
yamen had been burned down and Out
be had poisoned himself, but this hni
no confirmation. Tho first firing com
menced on tho Foreign Settlement en
Saturday morning, when a horde tried
to invado the Settlement from tho Tu
Uu road, but wero repulsed by Unltol
States marines from tho Monocacy nna
Yorktown, one ot tho marines) being
killed and another wounded. On the
same day ut sunset, heavy flrlrig begun
all round tho settlcmnt and lasted all
night, weakening by daylight. On
Sunday, the 17th, a pitched battlo took
place between tho Russian regiment
under Col, Aslmloff, together with the
combined British, German, American
and Italian troops and the Chinese.
Tho foreigners totalled less than 2,000
men, against an overwhelming enemy,
whoso numbers are purely problemati
cal. The battlo raged for e doubt
ful hours. 1
The foreign troops, entrenched along
tho railway embankment, fired volley
nfter volley, but their fire was Ineffon
tual after six hours, so numerous were
the Chinese. Despite enormous loss tho
enemy closed ranks' and advanced a
llttlo. Tho situation was now cioro
dospcrato. Captain Bayley had placed
himself under Colonel Aslmloff, as tho
latter had moro experience of fighting
barbarians. Tho Colonel ordered n
bayonet chnrge'hs n last resource to
prevent tho Invasion of tho Settlement,
Priilsu for WtiKwIiiiiH,
Tho charge wns modo at midday, and
th llustdans nlono lost that tiay 210 In
killed and wounded. Theso figured I
got from Mr, Batty, a Russian te iner-
rhsnl, at whoio place tho HumUm till
their headquarters. Kvrry ftirelsner
think that hut for tho Illinium, thc-a
would not have been 0110 lorclsner left
nlho in the Settlement. Colonel Ait
mlott had landed In Tlrn Tsln 011 thn
night of the' 12th of June, with Instruc
tions to proceed to Peking, nnd It wra
I providential that he wns dela)ed await
ing stores, etc, from Tnku. Whl'.o
nailing, the situation had hecomii so
critical that he waived his Instriictiotis
and stncd for the defense of Tien Tsln.
Had ho followed Insrtuctlons ami gone
tt Peking not one liuropcnn would
hae been left nllvc tod-iy. After tho
battlo there was comparative quiet,
followed by occasional shooting from
houses and trees. One of the clr-tis
men, Georgo Darrell, wnt shot In the
hack of the head and the bullet lodged
In his brain. He was "sniped" noir
the Victoria Hall In the main stret,
two blocks from the Astor House. The
hospital was crowded anil so too w.13
tho Tien Tsln Club, which was used as
a hospital; the wounded troops of
course had the preference and there
was no time to attend to Darrell, Ho
was delirious and was taken to a pri
vate house and attended by a doctor,
after which ho was taken to the French
Hosiiltnl. I heard Just before I left
that ho had died under an operation.

Rnln ot Shot und Shell.
"On Monday, the 18th of June, tho
bombardment began, und nt 2 p. m.
from nil directions camo shells. Anion.;
the first places hit were tho Astor
House und Gordon Hall, a big shell
bursting In the gardens of tho latter
place. Nightfall only heightened the
suspense. Tho women and children lied
to tho Gordon Hall for shelter. U cry
one knew the meagre force they had
with which to opposo and overwhelm
ing enemy. For the first tlmo the CM
neao abandoned their "No tan stc, no
-an savee" policy, and nt night they
made thu place a perfect hell with shell
lire. It was a ery black night and tho
continuous firing was kept up from
sunset to sunrise. Th enemy's num
bers and equipment made them moro
hopeful nnd us moro despondent. Our
meagre troops barely sulllced to cover
the large lire zone. Tho Russians hau
1100 and tho others did not make up
2000, and of these there were many kill
ed and wounded. Tho Settlement was
all exposed, and, let alone any aggrrs-
slvo move, the defence occupied them
all. We welcomed the next day an If It
were our last, nnd there was a look of
despair on many brave men's faces.
On Tuesday the telephone and tele
graph wires were cut and strung kneo
high nrross the streets to act as a net
work In preparation for an expected
Invasion at night. Hungs and godowni
wero ransacked nnd all of us were as
busy as beavers barricading tho Set
tlement with bales and boxes of all
descriptions. At 2 p. m. began the sama
hellish bombardment of tho previous
day. Tho Gordon Hall, where the wo
men and children wero, was struck
twite, one shell enterlnc the stacc wail
hut fortunately not exploding. NUhtj
came anil still no reinforcements,
"On Wednesday, 20th of June, the
Russian and British marines set most
of tho Chinese property In the Settle
ment on fire. Meanwhile skirmishing
wns going on all round and never ceas
ed. At 2 p. m. the shelling again be
gan, nnd soon nearly every House Hi
the town hnd a shell In it. The town
Is now n total wreck. On tho 21st the
bombardment began at daylight and
wo had tho same storm of Iron nnd
lead. We first heard tho boom of dis
tant cannonading, but whether from
reinforcements for us, or Admiral Sey
mour's column or for the Chinese nono
could tell. We nil hnd conflicting
doubts and hopes and fears as to the
1 enforcements. Friday, still tho sam!
fuslladlng and bombardment. On this
evening we saw the first rocket signals
nnd Cnptnln Bayley estimated they
wcrn on tho borders of the native city
and wo again heard the distant cannon
ading. On Saturday nt II a. m, thero
enmo In 130 marines nnd tho 1st Reg'
ment of Cavltn from the Nashville Tint
thn Solaco. The relief column marched
past the Gordon Hall, weary and dusty
after two days' continuous fighting,
and wore closely followed by about ltifi
British marines, 300 Welsh Fusllccr.i,
tho Wolhnlwe! contingent, Sikhs frmn
Hongkong and the Germans, Russians
and Italians their numbers I did not
obtain. Thoy wero nil parched and
half-starved, anticipating no such a
march, nnd each party bora a sad har
den of dead, dying and wounded. It
was. their distant cannonading wo hnd
heard for two days, A small party of
Americans had come within flvo miles.
