Washington, Aug. 7. The announce

sig or leported heavy fighting on the
roat! beyond Tien-Tsin was the news
of interest in the Chinese situation.
Utile doubt was expressed at the navy
department that the news was sub
stantially correct. Kcmey'tf telegram
said that 1C..0OO allies had heavily en
gaged the Chinese at Pietsaug at day
light on July 5. Peltsang is the first
rullroad statin, about eleven miles
northwest of Tien-Tsin. en route to Pe
king. Taussig's dispatch 'said the en
gagement lasted from 3 to lOMO a. m..
ami that the allied loss in killed and
wounded was l,2uo chiefly Russians
tnd .Japanese. The Chiuese were re
tiei'ting. Casualties May lie Exaggerated.
1 It is piobahle that a later report
m.nv reluce the list of casualties among
.the International forces, but it is evi
dent that the move on Peking 1s at last
fairly under way, and that strong op
position has been encountered. The
war department otlieials. who have
been exceedingly reticent for several
!ays as to news from the seat of war,
admitted yesterday w hen the naval dis
patches were received that the
announcement of the battle
was not unexiH'cted. Opinion
among the various officials now
In Washington Is somewhat divided as
to Just what is presaged by yesterday's
events. The more optimistic are In
clined to think that such a severe blow
as the Chinese must have received at
IViisang will result in tle sjK-edy dis
integration of the forces now opposing
the march of the international column.

under date of Aug. 4. This Is the first
official Information received here that
the attempt to relieve Pekin has le

British oonsid does not mention any

Sunday, says: "The lVkin relief col

out the reports of Admiral Hemey and
Commander .Taussig regarding an en
casement at'Pietsaug. The fact that
the advance did not begin until Sat
urday Is taken to strengthen the ac
count of a battle Sunday.
In the same cablegram, which was
rwd in the house of commons, the con
l at Tien Tsin says: "News from the
Japanese legation has been received up
to u 1." There fore the edicts an- (
MQuncing the safety of the ministers

the friendly relations ex 1st iug be

The message contains this Important
statement: "A successful termination

eoiifirrri the statement that the Chinese
government will endeavor to stop the,
march to Pekin by using the minisr
ters as hostages.
The Lokal Anzeiger, of Berlin, pub
lishing an interview with LI Hung
Chang, quotes him as declaring em
phatically that China must not. in
anr circumstances, cede any more
territory to any power. In reply to a
question why the rebellion was not
put down. Earl LI is represented as
having said: "I blame Trince Tuan,
the empress dowager and the whole

of energy the situation would never

in answer to questions regarding af
fairs in China, that Kuiperor William's
speech to the soldiers who were going
to China was generally misinterpreted.
He never meant, the ambassador
said, "to tell them to give the Chinese
no quarter. Nobody so understood his
speech until some French papers put
tliat construction upon It." The" first
time I heard of such an interpretation
was when I received a certain Paris
