ADMINISTRATION'S CHINESE POLICY.
The policy of the administration regarding: the Chinese crisis vv.t. settled
at the Cabinet meeting this morning. The (jovernment has rejected Ceriiiaiiy's
proposal to Join in punishing the officials respons-iule for the Pekin outrages and
has decided to go ahead with the peace negotiations with China In all haste.
The President, In view of the uprisi ng in the Philippine, is more than ever
anxious to get American troops out of the Umpire at the earliest moment.
General MacArthur'S reports show that ho needs more men to cope with the
The Cabinet meeting was attended only by thrpo members Attorney Gen
eral Griggs, Secretary Hitchcock and Secretary Long but communication was
had with tho absentees over the long-distance telephone. The two last named
returned to Washington especially to bo present at the conference. The meet
ing lasted only a little more than aa hour and a half, for the President had
already agreed upon his policy of getting out of China as soon as possible.
Accordingly ho desired only the concurrence of his advisers in the plans he
hRd laid. The discussion centered upou the attitude of Germany, Itussia and
The German request to Join in punishing the Chinese responsible for the
outrages was disposed of In short order. Mr. McKInley felt that the Philippine
situation so completely demanded all available troops In tho Orient that he
could not seriously consider any policy which would mean the punishment of

earliest moment was mors in line with the purpose of the administration to
get out of China as quickly as possible. Xo official announcement was mado
after the meeting, as to tho policy of this Government regarding peace nego
tiations, but It Is believed that the Pres Ident agreed substantially to Prince
Ching's requests. It is no yet possible, however, to say what authority will bo
given Minister Conger in carrying forward these negotiations.
After the Cabinet meeting the members announced that the test of the re
plies will be mado public as soon as they are handed to the Governments to
which they are addressed. That may be either late to-night or to morrow.
"The character of the replies will commend Itself to the good f-ense of the
American people," said Secretary Long, after the meeting.
A member of the Cabinet bald this evening that all the United States
troops will be withdrawn at once from China, excepting one squadron of cav
alry, ono battery of artillery and one regiment of Infantry.
Theso will remain as a guard for Minister Conger and the United States
Legation. Tho troops withdrawn will go to tho Philippines. The marines now
on duty In China will be sent to Cavlto.

I FATHER DUCEY SAYS THE
FORCE THE A1INERS TO VIOLENT ACTS
BY THE REVEREND THOMAS DUCEY.
Hazleton, Pa. Sept. 21. The operators here are massing their special dep
utlts, and the object of these deputies Is evidently to force some of the miners
into overt acts and some manifestation of violence, to that a reason can be
found to call out the mllltla and rob the miners of the sympathy of Just peoplo
throughout the country.
To prove the truth of this statement, that these special deputies, tho em
ployes of the operators, as well as the Plnkerton men, ara exerting themselves
to provoke the miners, Mr. Sparr of tho Outlook, last evening, after returning
from a raseting back in the mines. Informed mo that as he went out upon tfec
trolley some Pinkerton men sought to provoke a few Hungarian miners who wefe
on the car. by repeated nets of insult. Into an attack. The conductor, seeing the
situation, warned these Plnkertons that they must desist.
Tho operators arc seeking thl3 course to arouse sympathy in their favor and
to make it appear that they require the men to guard their property.
Tho miners themselves, as well as the Mining Engineers' Association, are per
fectly willing to lend themselves to the protection of the operators' property.

duced by the disturbances at Shenandoah
and the arrival In Hazleton and on the
North Side of large numbers of deputies,
