SO IS TO ESCAPE I WORSE FIIL
by the small body of defenders, who
met the Chinese In the streets, inflicting
severe punishment upon them.
These sorties too often took place at
night. So great was the courage and
energy of the little force that they
gradually compelled the Chinese to retreat
from the Immediate vicinity o'
the British LegaUon. Soon there began
to be open signs of disaffection and
frequent desertions .of the troops of
Prince Ching, who was endeavoring to
co-operate with the besieged.
"Ultimately Prince Tuan decided to
make an organized night attack. Having
secured a plenUful supply of ammunition
for heavy guns, a conference
of Chinese leaders was held and a regular
plan of attack was agreed upon.
In three powerful columns, with strong
reserves, at C p. m. on July C fire w:
opened with arUllery upon the British
Legation, where the allies and all Europeans
had concentrated. For two
hours walls and buildings were battered
with shot and shell and huse
breaches were made In them. Then a
general advance was ordered, and the
Chinese Infantry, volleying constantly,
moved toward the gaps. The lire of the-i
defenders, however, was so accurate
and steady that the hordes of Chinese
soldiers and Boxers broke and fled in
tlie wildest confusion, leaving a large
number of dead and wounded around
"They were not rallied until out of
rifle range. Then Prince Tuan, making
a desperate appeal, induced them to
stand and return to the attack. Their
artillery fire was resumed; and at the
middle watch a second attack was
but boforo tho attackers coal J
accomplish their object they were met
by Prince Ching and General Wang
Weng Sbao with their troops, who were
going to the aid of the foreigners. A
desperate battle ensued between the
two forces of Chinese.
"Unfortunately, many of Prince
Chlnds troops deserted to PrlncA Tufti.
Prince Ching fell. It was supposed that
he was killed, but search for his body
next morning was unsuccessful. It Is
now believed that he was only woun 1-ed
and was carried off and secreted Ly
his faithful retainers. Wang Weng
Shao, also a gray-haired man of 70,
evidently led the troops in person. He
was killed and his force complete')'
outnumbered and routed.
"Throughout the night repeated attacks
were made on the legaUon, but
they were invariably repulsed with
heavy losses. Toward the end of tho
third watch (about 5 a. m.) the allies
had practically defeated the besiegers,
who were wavering and were gradually
withdrawing, when General Tung
Puh Sian arrived from the vicinity of
Tientsin with a large force of Kansu
braves. By this time the walls of the
legaUon had been battered down and
most of the buildings were in ruins
from the Chinese arUllery fire. Many
of the allies 'had fallen at their posts
and the remaining small band who
were still alive took refuge in the
wrecked buildings, which they endeavored
hastily to forUfy. Upon them the
Are of the Chinese artillery was now
"Towards sunrise It was evident that
the ammunition of the allies ras running
out, and at 7 o'clock, as an advance
of the Chinese In foroe failed, to
draw a response. It was at once clear
that It was at length completely exhausted.
A rush was determined upon.
Thus, standing together as the sun rose
fully, the little remaining band of. Europeans
met death stubbornly. There
was a desperate hand-to-hand encoun
ter. The Chinese lost heavily, but as
one man fell others advanced, and-finally
overcome by overwhelming
ouus, everyone of tue Europeans remaining
were put to the sword in a
most atrocious manner."
RUSSIANS WERE ORDERED
ST. PETERSBURG, July 13. The
latest advices received here regarding
the spread of the revolutionary movement
In Manchuria added but little
material information. On June 24 an
edict of the Emperor .Qf China was intercepted,
ordering the Chinese troops
to unite with the Boxers.
Subsequently the Governor of
informed the chief engineers that
the railroad line must be handed over
to the Chinese and that all Russians
must prmaaently leave Manchuria. The
engineers protested and requests that
the for assistance of the
Russians at Port Arthur to annihilate
the Boxers did not avail, ind
i the Chfnese troops continued to mass
until the rising culminated In the murders
aad attacks on the railroad and
towns already reported.

Then they fought to the end. The Chinese trained
rapid-fire guns on them and killed nearly all. A few ran
back to the British legation, but the Chinese battered down
the walls with artillery and set the building on lire. The
occupants vrere burned. The Boxers horribly mutilated
the corpses of the dead. Prince Ching attempted to defend
the foreigners from Prince Tuan's troops, but every foreigner
was massacred. The- streets ran red with blood.
All the native Christians were massacred.

DESORIPTION OF LAST
STAND OF MINISTERS.
Tolved the promotion of General Chaffee.
The Secretary of War was anxious
that a full division of troops b
in China within a short time, so that
General Chaffee would have proper
military strength back of him. A protracted
conference between Secretary
Root and General Leonard Wood. Governor-General
of Cuba, who arrived In
Washington last night, brought out the
fact that the withdrawal of one additional
regiment from his territory
would not seriously affect the department
or menace the good government
of the island. Secretary Root has left
the question as to which regiment shall
be withdrawn to Generla Wood, but
the Secretary said this afternoon that
he expected the First Infantry would
be sent north. .
Secretary Root said that whatever
regiment was chosen would be. placed
under orders to sail for the Far East,
but If It Is clear that it is not needed
in China it can be diverted over to tLe
Philippines. Therefore orders issued to
this regiment may not specify China,
but will unquestionably mean China.
LAST MESSAGE FROM
PEOPLE ill LEGfiTiONS.
CHICAGO, July IS. A
patch from Chefoo, July 15,
- via Shanghai, July 18, says:
r A communication was
ed to-day by the Japanese Con-
sul from the Japanese Minister
at Peking, dated June 29. It said
J- that all the minors were in the
British Legation, short of food,
hard pressed and unable to hold

(This Is significant, for it is
the latest dispatch from Peking,
aside from those through Chi
nese sources, since Sir Robert

he said the guns were trained on
SAFE IH DRY DOCK.

cablegram from Captain Wilde,
commanding the Oregon, dated Kure,
"Secretary Navy, Washington: Oregon

o'clock this afternoon. Expect to dock

or temporary repairs? I would suggest
putting on steel patches which can be
done In a very short time and ship go

To this dispatch Secretary Long at

"Universal rejoicing over safety of
Oregon. She is the ConsUtution of this
generaUon. If safety of Oregon permits
patch and go to Taku. I commend

CHINESE STASS TROOPS
AGAINST RUSSIA IN AaTUE.
ST. PETERSBURG, July IS. Reports
have been received by the Russian
general staff from the Amur district,
showing that the Chinese have
made serious preparations there and
are now concentrated on the railway
line from Algun to Saghallen. Thsy
are well supplied with artillery and
have large quantites of munitions. The
Russian General Gribbovsky, after
reconnoiterjng the district, returned to
Blagovetchensk, capital of the
of Amur, on Monday.
Other official reports confirm the serious
news of the stoppage of work on
the Manchurlan railway, jwine: to Chinese
attacks, es; at Harbin,
where an attack oy 400 Chinese was
repulsed on July 9. Harbin Is in a
critical state, being cut off from the
vt?t, south and north. Russiau troops
have been sent from different points
to protect the railway. The Chinese,
however, are still working on the eastern
section of the line, which gives
hope that energetic measures may
succeed in restoring order.
RUSSIA HANDS PASSPORTS
TO THE GHSHESE MINISTER.
NEW YORK, July 19. The Journal
has this from London: It Is by order
of the imperial government at Peking
that Chinese commanders have stopped
navigation on the river Amur, firing
upon the Muscovite transports and
forcing them to retreat. It Is in deference
to the same commands, emanating
from the government at Peking,
tnat cmnese regular tfdbpir have-invaded
Siberia, penetrating some
twenty miles in the Czar's dominions
and bombarding Blagovetchensk, Uie
capital of Amur province.
This in itself Is equivalent to a declaration
of war against Russia, which,
construing it as such, has handed tbe
Chinese envoy at St. Petersburg his
passports to-day and requested him to
leave the country, along with members
of his mission.
EXTRA SESSION MAY
BE GALLED OCTOBER.
WASHINGTON, July IS. The entire
story regarding yesterday's Cabinet
meeting and the decision to call no
extra session of Congress is this: The
President does not believe the present
'to be the proper time to call Congress
together. He told his Cabinet yester
day that he fully expected that before
December he would ha.e to call Congress
here, and he said that as matters
look to him now he might get it here
in October, or at least right away after
lection, and then let it remain in ses
sion until the 4th of next March. This
is the plan which the President desires
to carry out, and he believes It to be
much better than getting Congress here
now for a while, sending it home
again, and then having it come back in
December. He believes that not before
next winter will 'the United States he
called upon to send another large quota
of troops to China.
