Washington, June 10- There are at least
thirty-nine representatives of the Diplomatic
ar.J Consular Service of the United States at
present in China, many of them accompanied
by wives and children, or other relatives or
friends, and all of them having personal or
household servants, making an aggregate, upon
a conservative estimate, of two hundred persons
irfftelally representing the dignity of thin coun
try, who eventually, in all probability, must
lock to American naval and military force for
protection unless a portion of this number, al
ready fugitives from the Chinese, succeed in
escaping to secure asylums.
Of these the most desperately in need of re
lief. If it is not already too late, are the five
members of the Legation at Peking. These,
with their rank, birthplace. State, whence ap
pointed and date of original commission by the
Ftate Department, are as follows:

The Roman Catholic Church has only one or two
American missionaries in China. Father Hornsby,
of St. Louis, is thought to be probably the only
one from this country. The other Roman Catho
lic missionaries are. for the most part. French, al
though there arc a few Germans and Italians.
The list of. Methodist Episcopal missionaries In
China Wai printed in The Tribune last Sunday.
The exercises of the sixth day of the annual con
ference of the Board of Foreign Missions of the
Presbyterian Church began yesterday in the assem
bly hall of the Presbyterian Building, at No. 156
Fifth-aye., with a devotional service led by the
Rev. Dr. W. R. Richards, who made special ref
erence to the missionaries in China.
Just before the meeting closed the Rev. Arthur
J. Brown asked ten of the missionaries who have
been, appointed to various points in North China,
immediately within the zone of the present dis
turbances, to meet the Rev, William R.R ichards,
chairman of the China Committee of the Board of
Foreign Missions* and himself in his study at the
close of the meeting.
These young people had expected to leave for the
scene of their labors In a few days, but when they
met Dr. Brown after the meeting they were In
formed that the Board had decided that they
should not go at present, but that they
should hold themselves in readiness to sail after
September 1. If by that date the disturbances in
crease so as to render it unsafe for the mission
aries to go Into the Interior, they will at least be
sent to some port like Chefoo. where they can
begin the study of the language under the protec
tion of the foreign Powers.
Warhington, June 10 (Special). — The Governor
of the Sailors' Snug Harbor is to be ordered to
Bea, probably to the Asiatic fleet. Commander
Daniel Delehanty, who has held that desirable
billet for more than two years, and who pre
vious to that was for four years Supervisor of
New-York Harbor, expected to go on the retired
list next week, on his own application, under
the opportunities offered by the personnel law,
which permitted two commanders to go off the
active list this year.
Until to-day his application had tho right of
way, and the Secretary had no alternative save
to grant It. Tn that event, the Commander
would have become a enptain, and could have
indulged himself at Snug Harbor the rest of his
life. Now he cannot remain there any longer
unless he resigns outright from the Navy. The
violent change in the popular Commander's
plans Is due to a cable dispatch, which came
to the Secretary of the Navy to-day from Com
mander Fernando P. Gilmore, commanding the
Isla de Cuba, at Manila, applying for retire
ment. He ranks Delehanty by thirty-four num
bers being No. 114 on the list of commanders
while Delehanty is No. 148. William J. Moore,
the other commander who ha? applied for re
tirement, Is No. 11-.
1 > der the provisions of the law the officers are
sele< ted in the order of seniority, rntil to-day
Moore and Del( hanty were plated for the vacan
cies, but Gilmor>''s dispatch upset all calcula
tlons, ana Delehanty will not have another
chance at the retired list until he reach-:; the
age limit. Ordinarily he would be permitted to
remain at Snug Harbor a while longer, but the
Chinese trouble has created a great demand for
offV'Ts as well as men, and Commander Dele
hanty, who has been chiefly ashore for several
yenrs, will be among the first sent to Asia.
Lock Wing, the Chinese Yice-Consul. last night
spoke at length to a Tribune reporter about the
situation In his country.
"1 hav^ given no Interview to the reporters," he
said, "about what would happen to my country
men hi re if the United States should be at war
With China. Neither am I responsible for what
our interpreter. Mr. McDonald, says. Still, it is
true, ;<s he is quoted in an evening paper as say
ing, that if the.^e two nations should fight each
otlif-r, the citizens of each country in the territory
of the other would be ordered to go. Wasn't that
.y when this country and Spain fought? But
I do not believe there is going to be war. No
nation in these days can ever think of tinhtlnK half
ii others. That would be Impossible. It
would he foolish. So I have not the slightest feel-
Ing of anxiety about the Chinamen In the United
States. Even if there is further trouble, or sup
pose the present reported disturbances have hap
;.nd the United States takc-s strong ai
am quite confident that my people In this country
will not be troubled. Tills country will treat
them with all the more hospitable feelings, b<
of their home land being in dirti> ■■>
"The Boxers have no connection With the Chinese
Government. The statements that the Empress
sympathizes with them in their deeds >'f. ..
I deny. Suppose they should n«-t control ..f the
where would the present rul rs be?
Wouldn't t..ey be worse off than if the foreign
nations had stepped tn to help the authorities stop
The Boxers are se< ty m m
who have broken out In force many times
never bo dangerously as now. Th>> rulers,
: v. . can put them down In time, and will.
But i !blna is a •> much

Introduction of railro i As It Ii

"We Uo not credit any of these reports unless

saying that the Empress Dowager had gone to the
Ruffian Legation i'>r refuge, well, that is pr0b

"I cannot say anything about the future of China,
but I feel that the Chinamen here are going to be

between my Government and the foreign nations.'
Chicago, June 19.— A dispatch to "The Tribune"
dated Washington says:
Persistent rumors are afloat that President Mc-
Kinley has decided to call an extra session of Con
gress to deal with the Chinese situation. If war
< x :«:.«- In China, growing- out of the destruction of
the United Stntia ami other legations, it will be
necessary to send more troops to China. Owing to
conditions in the Philippines no more troops can
bo withdrawn safely. Therefore it will require
authority from Congress to furnish troops.
The rumors of an extra session cannot bo traced
to a trustworthy source, and inquiries at the White
House throw no light on the subject. A member
of the President's official family hen questioned
"I do not know whether this matter has been dis
cussed or not, but the President can be depended
upon to do everything In his power to protect the
lives and property of Americans In China. Here
tofore this country has acted Independently, but is
now acting in concert with the Powers."
Richard Brinsley Sheridan, a descendant of the
brother of the Irish dramatist and orator of th.it
r.ime, Is staying: In New-York. He is in this city
for a lit! while on his way from the East to his
home In England. Since 1537 Mr. Sheridan has
b.:on In China and other Eastern countries, and
his observations of the conditions which prevailed
in the Chinese Empire arc particularly noteworthy
at this? time. In the three years which Mr. Sheri
dan spent in China he studied thoroughly the sit
uation there and the causes which have led to the
present troubles. During his sojourn in the East
he gathered together copious material, which he
will make use of in a book which he Intends to

Sheridan expressed last nighi to ■ Tribune reporter
an vested frith unusual interest. For one thing, he
asserts that the Boxers are animated, not si much
by a desire to wage warfare on the foreigners as
to restore th« Emperor to power. The anti-foreien
feeling, Mr. Sheridan said, was due mainly to the
prevalent \<'< a that the foreigners were bent upon
the partition of China. Undoubtedly, however, he
contended, unless the Powers grappled Immedlateiy
atid effectively -.viih the difficulty which now con
front.-d them, the probability was that the whole
country would ris»- in rebellion.
The recent outbreak Mr. Sheridan traces to the
struggle for supremacy between the Emperor and
the Empress Dowaxer two years aeo. His de
scription of the circumstances appertaining to the
practical deposition of the Emperor considerably
amplifies the dispatches, conflicting, as they were.
fr..m day to day, of the contest for domination of
the reform party, as represented in the Emperor,
and of the anti-reform element, as personified in
the Empress Dowager.
"The struggle came to a critical issue." Mr. Sher-
Idan related, "in September. IMb, while the Em
press was away from Peking, at her summer palace.
Acting upon the advice of Kang Yu Wei, his tutor
—a man of great perspicacity, who i« called the
modern Confucious— the Emperor determined to
free himself of the control and sway of the Dow
"On September 17 the p!ot was formed, and Gen
eral Yuen, who had command of 10,000 trained sol
di.-is in Tien-Tsln, was ordered to march on
Peking in order to support the Emperor. Yuen
agreed to do so on condition that he receive writ
ten authority. Th.- Emperor weakly declined to
commit himself, and Yuen refused to move his
troops. Two days later the Empress heard of the
plot, and hurried back to Peking. Lv Yung, an
official of high standing, was one of the conspira
tors, and a letter which he wrote to one of his as
sociates describing the part he was taking in the
plot fell into the hands of the Empress. In that
letter he .spoke offensively of the Empress's morals.
age and ability. Yu sought to save himself by be
traying the plot and his co-conspirators, but while
the Empress forgave him lor his part in the con
spiracy she could not forgive him for what he had
:*;i!d about her personally, and he was tortured.
"At this time Marquis ito, of Japan, was in
Peking to arrange for the proper training of the
Chinese army and navy, with a view to co-oper
ating with Japan. This was one of the retorm
alms of the Emperor. The Empress heard of the
proposed conference and Insisted that she should
be present, hidden by a screen, in order to hear
what passed. She was present, and when Ito
came in the Emperor, instead of discussing the
questions for which the conference was arranged,
displayed his WOSJcbsm by merely asking- such
ordinary Chinese questttm as "Are you married?'
'What is your age?" and then raising his tea cup
as a signal that the interview was at an end.
Marquis fto v. as Indignant at such treatment, and
left China at once for Japun. That night the Em
peror was depos. who had assisted him
in the conspiracy were executed. The report was
Circulated that he was dead.
"Then arose a public clamor against the Em
press. Peking and Tien-Tsln and other towns
were placarded by the people opposed to the Em
press, threatening to rise in rebellion and also to
massacre th< is, who they believed were
la sympathy with the Empress's policy.
"The natives who threatened this outbreak."
continued Mr. Sheridan, "belonged to the secret
societies. China Is honeycombed with these or
ganizations. The societies of the North are eon-
Wlth those of the South, and the dlsaffec
which they gave vent at tha time of which
I speak has continued until now. The existing
mces are merely a development of what
occurred two years ij.to. The strongest societies
are -in- Cantonese, and these are entirely opposed

are, art only the delegates of these societies. The
Empress Is i ncouraging the Boxers, but she can
never control them, and if .she continues to prompt
them they will ultimately destroy her. The

London, June 19.— 1t was announced to-day
that the Chinese Government has given r.otk-e
to the cahle companies that it Is unable to pro
vide any longer the daily boat BClvlcs hitherto
run between Taku and Che-Foo. whereby dis
patches were filed after the destruction of th*»

It was further learned that It was quite likely
that even Che-Foo. which Id over two hundred
miles from Taku, will not long be available
for sending cables. The nearest point of com
munication with the outer world will then be
come Shanghai, or six hundred mil^s from th«
seat of operations.
The reason for the probable Isolation of Che-
Foo consists In the fact that it Is only connect
ed with the main line by loops. The Junction is
inland at Chin-Ing, and Boxers are believed to be
In that neighborhood. If they are successful
their first step is sure to be the destruction of
the line.
All dispatches now coming from Taku are
taken to Che-Foo in vessels of the Powers,
which may shortly have to go to Shanghai.
This tedious method of communication may
exist for some time after the united forces reach
Tho first opening of communications between
Taku and Peking will undoubtedly be by means
of military wires, which will be taxed to the
utnv at by the demands of the commanders of
the various nations. So complete Is the destruc
tion of the company's wires between Tien-Tsin
and Peking that it is estimated It will take
many days to restore them, even after the
