AT CHINESE PORTS
BERLIN, June 8.— A German Foreign
Office official made the following . state
ment to a representative of the Associated
Press: . • V
"The Foreign Office has had no otlicial
communication from China for two days.
Of the two wires connecting with Peking
one has been destroyed.. It is of the ut
most importance to. the, powers to "pre
serve the other. It ought not to be dim
cult for the powers to kqep open the rail
way-to Peking. The Foreign Office, does
not know of , any further plans by the
powers to land . marines. , 'We , have heard
nothing to confirm the statement thatithe
Empress Dowager sideb with the Boxers." 1 .
From other sources it was ascertained
pean Governments respecting the Boxer
trouble. Thus at Taku Admiral Kempff
is acting, in a similar manner with the
commanders of other naval vessels as
sembled, although his orders_are subject
to the approval of no one. At Tientsin,
forty miles up the river, which the ad
miral expects to be attacked to-morrow,
the foreign naval commands are acting to
It is said that In case of an emergency
involving jeopardy to the lives of for
eigners the United States forces at Tien
tsin might even be directed in th. ir gen
eral movement, by the senior naval officer
ashore, even though that officer should
happen to be a German, a Russian, a
Frenchman or an Englishman. This tem
porary subordination of authority might
be brought about, and in fact would exist
solely through a military exigency. If
Tientsin is to be attacked by a vast horde
of Boxers it is entirely conceivable, ac
cording to military practice, that a suc
cessful defense of the foreign lives and
property in the city can, be. maintained
only through the assumption of the com
mand of the foreign naval forces by one
competent officer; too many captains may
mean defeat. In view of this possibility
thft assumption of the command of the
American forces ashore by Captain Mc-
Calla may be significant.
It Is an" unusual course for a captain of
a ship himself to take command of a
landing party, as has been done by Cap
tain McCalla. His rank would correspond
with that of a colonel qf marines, and
it may be that he would himself be the
senior ofllcer at Tientsin and thus be
obliged to assume command of the defense
and direct in a general way the operations
of the European naval parties landed
The naval officers here are confident
that Tientsin proper is not in» particular
danger. The gunboat Helena will soon
have the town under her guns. and there
are believed to be three foreign warships
in position to co-operate.
URGES ENGLAND AND
RUSSIA TO ACT TOGETHER
LONDON, June 8.— The Spectator, com
menting on the Chinese difficulty, says
that it considers that if the situation be
comes acute the/ only alternative to a
European concert, which will be effective
only In theory, would be for England and
Russia to act together in a definite agree
ment. The paper adds: "They alone pos
sess physical power near enough to the
scene to be of Immediate use. England
could In this case use her Indian troops."
Continuing, the Spectator strongly op
poses any partition of China 'and. thinks
It unsafe to assume that the Chinese sol
diers cannot fight. It adds: "The court
of Peking is in action the most Imbecile
in the world, but it may find a 'Wallen
stein who will not steal. his soldiers* pow
der,' and then Europe will have a new
problem to solve.''

Advocating the joint action of England
and Russia, the Times says: "It is in
fact .to the effective and cordial co-opera
tion of England and Russia that we must
look for speedy relief from the present
anxieties. It. is evident that the other
powers interested, are quite prepared to
take part in any-common and concerted
action and although some may be less
eager, than, others the spectacle of Eng
land and Russia agreeing to act together
arid resolved to act vigorously would do
more than anything else to" bring them
all Into line."
MISSIONARIES HEARD FROM.
NEW YORK, June 8.— The anxiety
which has been felt in regard to the Pres
byterian missionaries in the Peking dis
trict was partially allayed to-day by the
receipt. of a cablegram from Dr. John W.
Henry, one of the board's oldest mission
aries in China. The board cabled on Tues
day for information, and the reply read:
This is taken to indicate that no se
rious depredations have been made as yet
by the Boxers. The Presbyterian board
had fifty-eight American missionaries in
the Shantung province. The American
board has also received a cablegram stat
ing that all American missionaries are
well, but that the Government is demoral
ized and advising that help be requested
from the State Department.

junk eff Cape Suiman, eight miles from
Hongkong. After looting the Junks the
pirates made off in a westerly direction
with the launch and her crew.
JAPAN AND KOREA
YOKOHAMA. June 8.— More serious
from a Japanese point, of view than the
rising of the Boxers in China is the sud
den tension between Japan and Korea as
the result of the protests of Japan against
the torture and execution of political
prisoners by the Korean Government. The
Korean Emperor absolutely refuses to
grant an audience to the Japanese Minis
ter, Hayashi Gonsouke. . _
BEFORE THE CABINET.
WASHINGTON, June 8.— Almost the
only subject before the Cabinet meeting
to-day was the situation in China. Sec
retary Hay read a cablegram' from Min
ister Conger at Peking, in which he stated
that there was no improvement in the sit
uation and asked for Instructions.
Secretary Hay stated after the meeting
that a repTy would be sent to Mr. Conger
substantially reaffirming the one sent a
day or two ago, to the effect that he will
be expected to do whatever is necessary
to protect the lives of Americans and
their property, tcmalntain the dignity of
this Government. He will be instructed
to form no alliance •with. any power. It Is
understood here that the representatives
of the powers in Peking will call in a body
on the Dowager Empress and present the
necessity of her taking immediate and
vigorous action to suppress the. rioters.
It ia assumed that Mr. Conger will Join,
the other representatives.

local guerrilla chiefs, who. he said, were
the principal criminals in the affair.

CITY OF MEXICO. June ?.— The Offi
cial Gazette of the general Government
says: Some days ago a newspaper of this
city published an article taken from a
border newspaper to the effect that the
American warship Ranger, had threatened
to bombard Port la Paz. Lower Califor
nia, on account of a criminal suit pending
against two Americans— Robert and Ar
thur Grigsby. The truth is that there was
no such threat, but merely a courteous
request from the "captain of the Ranger
to the Jefe Politico of that district to be
informed as to the case, the parties con
cerned having made complaint to him.
The Jefe courteously declined to fur
nish the information and reported the
matter to the Department of Foreign Re
lations, which, through the American em
bassy in this city, complained of the con
duct of the captain, who could have noth
ing to do in a matter now_ pending in the
form of a habeas corpus before the Su
preme Court of the nation. The Govern
ment of the United States declared that
the request of the captain in question
(whose ship it seems went to L»a Paz on a
geographical mission) had not- been the
result of instructions given to him and
tnat his action was disapproved and the
occurrence sincerely regretted. It was
also stated that an investigation would be
made Into the acts of Captain Field and
the American Consul at La Paz and that
the result would be communicated to the
Mexican Government. When this takes
place the entire correspondence in the
case will be published.
