Taku, Sept. 20. Four thousand Russians,
3,000 Germans and 1,000 French
troops, with a detachment or Austrian
marines began the attack upon the
Peitang forts at daylight. The attack
waa answered briskly from the forts,
the bombardment continuing until
noon, but it was noticed that the forts
did not reply after 10 o'clock.
The allies sent forward at noon ta
discover the reason of the cessation of
firing from the forts and found them
deserted, there being only four dead
Chinamen within the walls. The allies
were much chagrined, as they believed
they had the place completely
surrounded, making escape impossible;
yet over 3,000 men got away in broad
daylight. The Russian artillery rc
has proved effective and the forts were
The British and Italian commanders
had decided to join in the attack, but
their troops had not arrived in tim.
The entire line between Tientsin
and Taku shows reinforcements were
heading for the forts.
Three members of the allied forces
were killed and fifty were wounded
through the explosion of mines laid
along their line of march.
STORIES OF ATROCITIES
IN HUNAN PROVINCE
Washington, Sept. 22. An official
communication coming through diplomatic
channels has been bi ought to the
a. ttentlon of the State Department
giving information as to conditions :u
the Yang Tse Kiang valley and al&o
giving details and fully authenticating
instances of atrocities in the province
of Hunan against Christian mission
aries. The account is given by one of
the Christian missionaries who escaped
and who makes the report through the
officials of the Government now forwarding
it to Washington.
In one case, it is stated, a missionary
had his eyes burned out, then a portion
of his body was cut off, and finally
a red hot staff was driven through his
back. In another case a missionary
was wrapped In cotton, the cotton was
soaked in oil and the mass set on fire.
Concerning conditions in the Yang
Tse Kiang valley the report states that
the Viceroys there have exercised a
most pacific influence, despite orders to
the contrary from Peking. It appears
that the Peking Government ordered
the Viceroys to assemble a large army
nnd march to the north. But as tho
Viceroys personally were opposed to an
anti-foreign crusade, the order -was not
executed. Instead of that one of the
officials assembled an army of 3,000
undisciplined coolies "who marched
north, as a formal compliance with
the order. This action of the Yang Tse
Viceroys in resisting the Peking influence
against the foreigners, is said
to have had an important effect in preventing
a general spread of disorders.
THE COURSE OF THSS
Xew York, Sept. 22. A special to th
Tribune from Washington says:
Notes have been sent to the Powers
clearly defining the course tb'i government
has determined to p"ru in
the Chinese situation. The Cliine-'P
ernment must be
ablrshed and enter into ne.v uealias
with adequate provision for repara
tion and guarantees for the future.
Most of the United States troops i'1 to
be withdrawn from China
China will be compelled to punish
her own culprits.
It is the belief of this Government
that there is nothing to prevent the beginning
of negotiations without further
delay and that no occasion exists
for the protracted continuance of
troops on Chinese territory. Cooperation
with the Powers along these lines
will be welcomed by this Government
which must, however, reserve the right
to act Independently on any proposition
which might lead to war with the Chinese
A memorandum "will be made public
by the State Department today after
the notes reach their destinations, giving
a full statement of the conditions
now existing -which will unmistakably
demonstrate that the course of the
United States has been thoroughly consistent
from the first and that nothing
has succeeded in sweTlnj; the Adminia
tration from its determination not to
become embroiled in any ulterior designs
other nations may have upon
According to the best
information, this Government announces
its recognition of LI Hung
Chans and Prince Chlng as the plenipotentiaries
of the Emperor Hwang
Hsu and has authorized Minister Conger
to open preliminary negotiations
with them at oace, the United States
at the same time being prepared to
appoint a special committee to meet
the Chinese aathorities empowered to
