June C The Dully piess has a dispatch from Shanghai, dated Tuesday, which says: "Russian troops have been ordered from Port Ar thur to the neighborhood of Peking to punish the Doxers for killing two Cos- sucks nnd wounding two." HDULIN, June 5. Tho latest news legnrdlng the Uoxers has reached here by private and otllclal lelegramB. all of which say the situation is black and nlurming. The German Foreign Office considers encounter between the Boxers und Russians tin event probably f taught with tho greatest danger. News has also leached hcie that several German and Catholic missions In the provinces of Shantung have been pillaged by mobs, supposed to have been incited by the uoxers agitation. NUW YORK, June C A cable to the Sun from Paris says: China is absorbing diplomatic attention at present. Nino telegrams from Peking were received at the Foreign Office today. Fears are now entertained that the lloxcrs will besiege that city. It Is reported that the Boxers a month ngo numbered 100,000. It Is considered likely that Russian troops from Port Arthur will pioceed by way of and occupy Peking. Russian Initiative is viewed with mixed feelings by French diplomatists. Russia represents conservative Chinese Ideas, as oppobed to tho open-door policy, and consequently, though France Is Russia's close ally, dllllculty Is experienced In backing her up thoroughly In the leading role she Is assuming. Fiance will, therefore, probably strengthen her garrisons In China considerably while awaiting developments. French agents In China have given the Impression, which Is surely erroneous, that tho United States Is engrossed In tho Philippines and not Interested In events In China. A French diplomatist today Informed the cottesponilent ot the Sun that the iiilglniil outlueak of Hoxeis occurred In a piovlnce within the Geimnn sphere of itilluence. The trouble was probably owing to the brutal tientment of the coolies employed lu railway construction. Serious fears me elitei tallied for the lives of the missionaries and con-vet ts nnd two vicntlsts In Shantung province. The Foreign Olllce has notified the pi ess that though nppaient calm has been lestoted in China through the landing of foielgn troops nt and the sending of them to Peking, the situation has ienlly changed seriously for the worse In the Inst three days.
