of Awful Situation at Peking.
I CHINESE ENEIIIEIT GIVES
"Washington, August S- Gravest apprehensions are felt here In official
circles for-the safety of the imprisoned Ministers In PeMng. The alleged
statement of Id Hung Chang that It is absolutely impossible for the allies
to enter Peking to escort the illniste -s to Tien Tsln adds greatly to the stnun
of the situation. It clearly Implies the purpose of the Chinese Government to
resist the advance of the allies.
So far as known, there Is no present purpose of calling a halt In the
movement against Peking. It U acknowledged that the relief column
is not strong enough to maintain war-against the Chinese kingdom for any
great length of time, but heavy reinforcements are en route to China. Their
arrival on the scene may alter the sl.nation entirely and bring the obstinate
Orientals to their senses.
It Is the present situatIaa,.howevcr, that worries the Administration ani
there is general chagrin that it Is not in a position to enforce its demands
and bring the Chinese authorities to instant terms. In the course of the uxt
two months there will be about G.0O) American troops on Chinese soil, not
counting many thousands more that co aid be transferred from the Philippines
in case of necessity. The Chinese will be held to a strict accountability for
any injury that may be sustained y American interests in the present Jil-sis.
What sbould be done for the immediate relief of the Ministers is the
problem now confronting the Administration and is the subject of anxious
conferences between the officials in this city and in telegraphic correspondence
with the President at Canton an 1 the Secretary of State at Sunapci,
Acting Secretary Adee received a cable message this morning from Consul
Goodnow at Shanghai giving the latest information in his possession in
regard to the situation in China, inclu ling the operations of the allied forces
engaged in the advance on Peking. It was referred to the Secretary of War
and was not made public
The following brief dispatch was received today at the Navy Department
from Rear Admiral Remey, commanding the naval forces in Chinese
"Chefoo, Aug. 8. Bureau of Navigation, Washington: Taku. Aug. 6. -Chaffee
reports Japanese took Pel Tsing on the morning of the 5th. Engagement

This gives a somewhat different nspect to the battle at Peitsang on
5th, as It indicates that the Americi detachment took no part in that engagement,
not having arrived until ai er the Japanese forces had effected the
capture of the city. Admiral Remey confirms General Chaffee's statement
that Yang Tsun is the next objective point of the relief column on its
march to Peking.
