TROOPS TO BE SENT FORWARD.
GOVER2T3CENT HOLDS IT IS
2?OT AT WAB, WITH
Cabinet Officers Averse to
the Severe Losses In
the Attack on
WASHINGTON. July 16. The de
cision of the Administration at the end
of a most eventful dav is that the
United States Government is still not
at war with the Government of China.
The big happenings at Tien Tsin, coming
on top of the stories of the last
struggles atTeking. have not affected
the attitude of the Administration on
this point; the United States and China
are technically at peace. But this
statement should not be accepted as
indicating a purpose on the part of the
United States Government to hold its
hand ic the administration of swift and
adequate punishment upon the Chinese,
without regard to station, who
may be responsible for the outrages of
the past few eeks. It means simply
that the Government of Uie United
States feels that it- can best achieve
that purpose by regarding the status
officially as one of peace. To hold
otherwise would seriously cripple the
Government in its effort to obtain sat
isfaction for the outrages the Americans
In China have suffered. We should
find the ports of China, now open to us,
closed and all sorts of Impediments
would be encountered, which are now
Therefore, according to tne
Administrating view, a declaration of
war would afford not even a technical
gain, while it would actually be a
heavy drawback. Chairman Cannon of
the House Appropriations Committee
is authority for the statement that
money in plenty is at the disposal of
the President to meet the present
emergency and that there is no necessity
for a called session of Congress
on that score.
Tho day was the most exciting
Washington has known since the battle
of Santiago. At the very beginning
came Admiral Remey's cablegram announcing
the defeat of the allied forces
at Tien Tsin, and then came the vivid
Associated Press account of the fight
A special Cabinet meeting was held on
recelpt'of this news with such members
present as are" in town. Great reluctance
was manifested on Uie part of
the participants to answer questions as
to the nature of the deliberations. The
best indication of its nature was the
departure for the' White House of Secretary
Hay immediately after the meeting.
He sat down and had a long talk
with President 3IcKlnley over the long
distance telephone, and it soon became
known that the President had decided
that t would be best for him to come
back from Canton to the Capitol.
The Cabinet officers talked over the
possibilities of reinforcing the troops
in China. There was no disposition
;iown to withhold these troops; the
only question was as to the "amount of
additional force available. That was a
technical question, so jt. was left to
the War Department to decide. The
only point laid down was that the
Government would send forward all the
troops that could be spared at this

international force without some wo.
Ing understanding as to the duty of
each "power represented. It was suggested
that an international conference
be called hastily at one of the
capitals, London. Berlin, Paris or
Washington, to define the part to be
taken by each power, and the quota of
troops to be furnished, and arrange for
the selection of a commander-in-chief
of the allied forces.
"This suggestion did not meet with a
favorable reception. It -was felt by the
Cabinet that the United States should
send what force It could dispose of to
China as far as seemed necessary, and
should not make an agreement with
other powers as to the number. This
decision involves the increase of the
force of troops destined for Ghina. The
responsible officials evaded any specific
statement as to the extent of this
increase. It was, however, gathered
that the reinforcements would be limited
only by the ability Of the Govern
ment to spare troops from those com
mands now In the United States and
Cuba. The estimates varied as to how
many could be spared, but the general
opinion was that somewhere between
4000 and S6G0 could be shipped to the
East from Cuba and the United States,
In addition to the troops already under
arms. A statement prepared by Adjutant
General Corbia shows that there
are "saw a grand total of 1S.655 officers

otherwise there was no demonstration.
Telegrams from Shanghai and
indicate an increasingly serious
Htate of affairs. It is alleged that tif
foreign Consols at' Shanghai have
cabled their governments that there Is
urgent need for warships to protect I
that city, owing to the menacing attitude
of the Chinese and the temptation
to loot the vast stores of merchandise
fXecenUy accumulated there. It seems
that the Chinese have already, threatened
to fire the great oil tanks on the
Chaotang side of the city.
From Chefoo comes the report that
the entire adult male population of
the three provinces of Chili," Shansi and
Shantung are massing tddefend Pe-
king, under the conviction "That the
powers mean war. There is little doubt
that a further check of the allies at

The Russians have "barricaded the

Perhaps the most serious among the
many reports from Shanghai is the
rumor that since the massacre at Peking
five Chinese regiments have been
ordered south with instructions to
make Chinghanpo, at the head a& the
Grand canal, the objective point for
the southward extension of the Boxer
Berlin, July IC. The news regarding
the massacre at Peking has been received
by the German press with a
unanimous expression of deepest sorrow
and indignation. Tho Yossische
Zeitung says: "There is no excuse
for a nation which commits such
crimes and none for a government
which tolerutespjdqesnot Jry to pre-
The papers insist upon absolute perfect
harmony between the powers
'"The powers will no longer quarrel,"
says the Lokal Anzeiger, "or weigh
things against each other. They will
try everything. They will risk every
man and every groat until this unparalleled
crime has met with the puiir
ishment it deserves."
The whole nation seems imbued with
similar sentiments. Emperor William
was immediately notified. The number
of Germans massacred at Peking is
said to be ninety-three, including the
detachment of marines, Professors
Stahlman, Colonel von Bismarck and
Von Bronn of the Peking University,
several German officials belonging to
the Chinese customs, several merchants
and the members of the legations, with
Baroness von Ketteler.
Dr. Slumni Ton Schwarzenstein arrived
this evening. He will receive instructions
