A special t6 the Tribune from -Washington says: To meet, the exceedingly gTave com plication that has developed in north ern China arid, in order that the United States may bei commensuratsly repre sented in the relief and protective measures forced upon the foreign na tions, the president has directed Gen eral MacArthur to send three regi ments of regulars to Tien Tsin, which with their support of commissary field transportation signal men and medical staff, will make a force of 5,000. Ad miral Remey has been directed to send the Oregon to Taku aa soon as she can start. The Oregon is sent because of her great moral effect and the large number of men she carries, uhe Iris is ex pected to leave Manila tomorrow for Taku with food, coal and ammunition for 900 men for three months,, for Ad miral Kempff's squadron. She will take at least eight days to make the voyage. The Solace, which left Manila with 100 marines last Wednesday, is due at Taku. The announcement of the return to Tien Tsin of the combined brigade af ter a week's fruitless effort to reach Pekin is regarded as of the highest im portance. It not only confirms the be lief of the desperate condition of affairs at the Chinese capital, but is thought to explain why it was necessary to seize the Taku forts. If the commanders of the combined fleet below the forts learned of the expedition's return to Tien Tsin that city being in the posses sion of mobs it must have been neces sary to send reinforcements and pro visions up the rivea promptly, no mat ter if the sun had set. une cninese reg ulations permit nothing to pass the forts at night under any circumstances. For the same reasons the gates or pekin are closed inexorably at sunset and not reopened until sunrise. Dispatches say the forts fired three quarters of an hour after midnight which bears out the suggestion that the gunboats were sent up the river with food supplies from the fleet outside.and were fired upon for violating the regula tions. With the forts as bases the pow ers are expected to form a large force as speedily as possible to begin a deter mined relief expedition of sufficient force to open the railway. No further restrictions will operate to impede the landing of the forces, particularly those of Japan. DETAILS OF THE BATTLE. London, June 19. China declared war against the world when the Taku forts opened fire upon the international fleet. The accounts of what took place are still unsatisfactory, the best semi-official information being the dispatch re ceived at Berlin from Che Foo. The unofficial narratives coming by way of Shanghai vary and bear evi dence of supplanting the main facts with guess work. One dispatch says the Yorktown participated in the bombard ment. Another asserts; that American marines formed part of the storming force of 2.000. An Associated Press dis patch from Che Foo, dated yesterday afternoon, says: The forts on both sides of Taku are now occupied. The Chinese opened fire unexpectedly. The casualties to the mixed force were as follows: Killed British 1; German 3; Russian 1, and French 1. Wounded British 4; German 7; Rus sian 45, and French 1. Chinese torpedo boats were seized. The Shanghai correspondent of the Daily Mail, telegraphing yesterday, says: "The forts began firing in ob servance to orders from Pekin, convey ed on the personal edict of the empress dowager, by advice of Kang- Yi presi dent of the ministry of war.) Several warships were struck by shells from the twelve inch guns of the forts. "The heavy Russian losses were due to the blowing up of the magazines of Mandshur. "Four hundred Chinese are reported killed. The Chinese, when retreating fell into the hands of the Russian land force." The Daily News has the following from Che Foo: "Two of the forts were blow up. The 32 trar ships at Taku ag gregated 202,000 tons and carried more than 300 guns." The failure of Admiral Seymour's col umn and its retreat to Tien Tsin in crease, it is presumed, the peril of the legations in Pekin, which is still isola ted, although Shanghai forwards Chi nese rumors that the legations were at tacked by mobs who were mowed down by machine gtlns and also that the members of the legations were massa cred. The situation at Niu Chwang is reported critical. The powers are taking prompt action. Four thousand German troops have been ordered to China, 10.000 French troops are awaiting to embark at Sai gon, capital of French Cochin China and 5,000 to 10,000 more Russians have been ordered from Port Arthur to Taku. The Brussels correspondent of the Standard, in a dispatch dated yester day says: "Russia has massed 40,000 men, with seven batteries of artillery at Kiachta, with orders to proceed to Maimatchin, a Chinese town contiguous to Kia Chau, and thence to advance along the tele graph route to the Mongol town of Urga, 200 miles south of Kiachta and 750 miles northwest of Pekin." The Shanghai correspondent of the Times gives the following description, said to be from official sources of the action at Taku: "On the afternoon of June 16, in view of the large bodies of Chinese troops, assembling at the forts and of the facts that torpedoes had been laid in the rivr and that all communications were inter rupted, the naval commanders held a Consultation and decided to send an ul timatum, calling for the disbandment of the troops and announcing that if this demand were not complied with be fore 2 a. m. of the following day the united squadron would destroy the forts. . "Shortly after midnight the forts op ened fire. The British, French, German, Russian and Japanese warships replied. Two of the forts were blown up, and the rest were carried by assault. "Two British, one American and five Chinese warships are in Che Foo har bor." The morning papers consider that state of war practically exists and that the issue is between eastern and west ern civilization. CHINESE DEFENSES. Washington, June 1&. In view of the international character of the attack upon and capture of the Taku forts, some interest may be felt in the fol lowing statement prepared by Major Simpson in charge of the military in formation bureau of the war depart ment: Taku Is situated at the mouth of the Pel Ho, on the southern bank of the river, about 7 miles from Tien Tsin, with which it is connected by a rail road. It is noted for the three engage ments that have taken place there be tween the British and the Chinese. Part of the Tien Tsin army corps has modern orsanization, drill and amis, and is stationed at the Taku forts. Between Taku and Tien Tsin, the cen ter of the defenses and chief arsenal of northern China, are permanent camps where there are usually 30,000 troops, infantry,, cavalry and artillery, armed with Mauser rlnes. The cav alry also carry Mauser carbines. These troops have been well instructed for ten or twelve years by foreign officers. The armament of the Taku forts con sist of very heavy Krupp guns and the approach to the forts from the gulf of Pe-Chi-Li is extremely difficult. The fortifications consist of three forta. a large one on the right bank and two smaller' ones on the left. All of the forts are armed with numerous guns of the most vsiTled sizes and calibres. In the construction of all forts of the second zone the muddy clay soil of the coast was used, which during the dry season becomes crocked and crumbles very easily, and the garrison is con tinually making repairs. In Taku are the materials for closing up the mouth of the Pei Ho. All the coast fortifica tions have mines. VOLUNTEERS FOR CHINA. Annapolis, Md, June 19. Orders re ceived at the naval academy today for a detail of 70 marines to hold themselves in readiness for service in the far east resulted in the necessary number of volunteers from the 200 men stationed here within a few minutes after it be came known that men were wanted. It is expected the men will leave for San Francisco on Wednesday. JAPAN IS EXCITED. Yokohama, June 19. The news of the shellingof thefortsat Taku has caused great excitement throughout Japan. It is reported that the powers will ask Japan to send 2,000 troops to suppress the revolt. It is probable that the gov ernment will consent. Additional trans ports are being prepared. LI HUNG CHANG CALLED. Paris, June 19. At a cabinet ' Council todav the minister of foreign affairs, M. Delcasse, announced that the tele granh line between Pekin and Tien Tsin was still interrupted. Advices received here from Shanghai say LI Hung Chang has been sum moned to Pekin from Canton. RUSSIA SENDS 4,000 TROOPS. Washington, June 19. Secretary of State Hay has been notified by the Russian embassy here that 4,000 Rus sian troops have been dispatched from Fort Arthur to Taku. AMERICANS DID NOT TAKE PART. London, June 19. From the German officials' dispatches the American ships took no part in the bombardment of the Taku forts Saturday morning. No news has yet been received here of the re lief of the legation . at Pekin and Europe's attention is centered far less on the overwhelming display of naval force at Taku than on the fate of the diplomatic staffs and six hundred cos mopolitan residents guarded by a hand ful of marines within the legation's compounds. There has been no news thence since June 14. Rumors that Japan will as the man datory or the powers restore order in China was revived in a dispatch today trora Yokohama. Berlin dispatches m timate that Germany will not object to Japan sending eighteen thousand troops while ureat Britain will endorse the plan with avidity though perhaps only secretly. The Japanese legation in London has official information of the dispatch of 3,000 troops. In the meantime the Brit ish are dispatching six native regiments besides artillery from India. The revolt is spreading in western China. Pritchard Morgan, M. P., at Ching Tu wires that he and his party have been detained there owing to the news that the revolution has broken out in Sechuan which adjoins the province of lunnan, also in revolt and official news comes today that the London missionary society's premises at Tsao Shih, central China, west of Hankow have been destroyed by a mob. The rising seems to be spreading with rapidity and shows unexpected organiz ation among the anti-foreign elements. The missionaries at Tsao Shih escaped and reached Hankow in safety. Cable dispatches from Shanghai re port that a number of Chinese cruisers are anchored in sight of the foreign set tlements, which are only guarded by a small Japanese gunboat. A thousand Chines? troops with two forty-nine pound guns still hold the forts outside the town. The viceroy of Woo Sung is reported to have assured the consuls that the foreign settlements at Shanghai will not be attacked. The admiralty office has received the following dispatch from the officer com manding the British first class cruiser Endymion: Liu Kun Tau, June 18, Monday. The Taku forts opened -fire at one in the morning, June 17, on the ships of the allied squadrons. After six hours' en gagement the forts were silenced and occupied by the allied forces. Addi tional men for storming the forts were sent ashore from the ships the previous afternoon. The British ships up the river engaged were the Algerine, gun boat; Fame, torpedo boat destroyer, and Whiting, torpedo boat destroyer. The two latter captured four Chinese torpedo boat destroyers. The casual ties of the Algerine were slight, those of the storming party and otSers are unknown. "A Chinese second class cruiBer, fly ing an admiral's flag, is detained out side Taku by the allied admirals. "No information of Commander-in-Chief Seymour's return to Tien Tsin has been received by the rear admiral up to 2 in the afternoon of June 17. I am sailing forthwith for Taku." The admiralty draws attention to the fact that the Endymion's report which is of a later date does not confirm the Japanese report of Admiral Seymour's return to Tien Tsin. An agency dispatch from Shanghai, dated June 19, says the latest news from Pekin is that the dowager empress is greatly concerned at the capture of the Taku forts and that wholesale deg radations of the Chinese army, includ ing Generals Sung Ching and Fung Fu Siang, the governor of Pekin and other high officials who promised the Tsung Li Yamen to accomplish the expulsion of the foreigners have taken place. Three of the Taku forts, it is added, were completely destroyed and most of the garrisons were killed or wounded by a charge of the sailors of the allied fleets. Unnecesar7 Loss of Time. Mr. W. S.
