V OL LX...-N 0 - 19.608. CHINA APPEALS TO M'KINLEY. ASKS HTS GOOD OFFICES TO EXTRICATE HER FROM TROUBLE WITH EUROPEAN POWERS. 50 ANSWER GIVEN, BUT A FRIENDLY ATTITUDE TAKEN Tnc Imperial Government at Peking has appealed to President McKinley to use Ins £ood offices to extricate China from the trouble with the great Pow cn resulting irom the Boxer uprising. While a final answer has not as yet been given to the appeal, this Government, proceeding O n the theory that the gners in I eking are still alive, is maintaining a friendly attitude toward Chi nese officials, though not intending to give up any part 'of its claim for com pensation in the final settlement. Forced to relinquish hope of a speedy advance on Peking by the allies, this Government is basing its only hope of rescuing the legations on the friend ship of Chinese \ icerovs and Governors. An Imperial ukase of the Russian Government declared that a state of siege existed in the military districts of Siberia, Turkestan and Semiret Chinsk. The Corean Government is sending more troops to the frontier, a fight hav iken place on the border between Chinese and Coreans. Li 1 lung Chang was coldly received at Shanghai, only a small escort being to meet him. The foreign consuls have decided not to make an official call the Viceroy. HOPING FOR NEWS TO-DAY. MESSAGE SENT BY JAPANESE MINISTER AT PEKING. [Copyright; 1000: By The Itaw-T«fe Tribune.] [BY cable to the TRIBUNE.] London, July 23, 6 a. m.— Mr. Conger's mes sage remains the one absorbing topic. Opinion has undergone little If an • change. It is ob served that the edict flatly contradicts Mr. Conger's message, which paid that unless aid came quickly all would be lost. The Chinese Minister in an Interview con. fessea that communication with Peking is prac tically reopened, and he holds out the hope that messages from the other foreign Ministers may be received to-day. He firmly believes they are safe The "Fiparo" states that a private message Y>a? been received from Tokio which states that the Japanese Minister at Peking has given news of himself in terms analogous to those of Mr. Concer. Shanghai telegrams endeavor to dis credit Mr. Conger's message. I. N. F. FEAR ASD HOPE IS ESGLASD STRONG ARGUMENTS IN FAVOR OF MIN ISTERS' SAFETY. [Ot>pyrtg*t : 1000: By Th« New-York Tribunal [BY CABLE TO THE THIBUNE ] . London. July 23, 1 a. There was no de elsive news from China at midnight, and a feel ing ct distrust pervaded Fleet Street and the clubs respecting Mr. Conger's message and the series of official dispatches from Che-Foo and fhanrhal which has followed It. These dis patches have been received at several of the Continental capitals, and are of the same tenor es those given out by the Chinese Ministers at Washington and London. The Ministers are re ported to be safe and well, and the Imperial Government is credited with measures for pro tecting and rescuing- them. These versions are not in accord with Mr. Conger's own account of the desperate state of the legations, whatever may have been the date of his dispatch, and the Misty of the Ministers will remain in doubt until they themselves confirm the reassuring reports of the Chinese viceroys. The English attitude of unreasoning unbelief re fpecting everything coming from official sources in the provinces is. however, not Justified by in herent probabilities. Leader writers who are cracking Jokes over the credulity of their Amer ican cousins In swallowing Chinese dates whole will find it difficult to explain the motive of the Imperial Government in either forging or rais ing the date of Mr. Conger's dispatch, and in wantonly deceiving one Power after another with false assurances of the safety of the lega tions. Until some Intelligible motive for such Insensate treachery is supplied It would seem prudent to give to the Imperial Government credit for telling at least part of the truth. GOOD GROUND FOR OPTIMISTS. Optimist views are confined to email circles here, bat several plausible reasons are as eigned for them. One is the evacuation of the country around Tien-Tsin by Chinese troops, iince it implies a decline of Boxer fanaticism. Another is the quieting down In southern prov inces, for the reports of risings at Canton and disturbances caused by the Black Flags are *till unconfirmed. Another is Li Hung Chang's Journey northward, which will be continued from Shanghai, for he would hardly renture to pass through the allied fleets and camps as the Ti'w Governor of Pe-Chi-Li if he were not as sured of the safety of the Ministers. To these reasons is added Inherent probability that the Imperial Government would not stultify itself fry silly mendacity if the Ministers had been massacred, but would identify Itself with a suc cessful rebellion in the end. as it had done in the beginning. Thoughtful men, reasoning from these prem ises, are disposed to believe that the Empres3 Dowager, after halting between Prince Tuan and Prince Chlng, has succeeded in enforcing **r authority and in protecting the remnant of the legations, for not even the most sanguine optimist is prepared to admit that assaults as determined as those described by Sir Robert Hart and Mr. Conger have not been attended *tth severe loss of life. MAJORITY GIVE UP HOPE. This view represented the hopeful minority of Cabmen and officials In town "last night.

POLAND WATER! for its great medicinal propertlei.- THE POLICY TOWARD CHINA THIS GOVERNMENT ACTING ON THE THEORY THAT MINISTERS ARE ALIVE. 'By The A5Fi-"-latfd PltM.) Washington, July 22— Frr sident McKinley has received what purports to be a direct appeal from the Chinese Imperial Government to use his good offices to extricate that Government from the difficult and dangerous position in which it has been placed as a result of the Boxer uprising and the ensuing hostile attitude of the great Powers. Although the exact text of the appeal made by the Emperor of China to France, as outlined in the cable dispatches of yester day, has not been made known here, it is be lieved that the address to the President is simi lar in terms to that communication. The com munication was made through Minister Wu to the State Department. Thus far a final answer has not been returned. The French Government answered at once, but that answer will not serve the United States. This Government is conscientiously proceeding on an entirely different line of policy in the treatment of the case. Unfortunately the State Department finds itself alone in this matter, but nevertheless it is convinced that its plan is tho best, and it has behind it the consoling assur ance that at present all the European Govern ments have tacitly admitted that an error was made in the beginning in not following the ad vice of the United States naval commander at Taku. The point of difference between the State Department and the Europecn Governments is that the latter are proceeding on the belief that all the foreign Ministers and missionaries and guards in Peking have been killed, and insist on dealing with the Chinese Government on that basis, thereby assuming a hostile attitude that tends to destroy the last chance of utilizing whatever friendly sentiment may yet exist among the powerful Chinese Viceroys and the Imperial Government itself. Thus the French reply indicated in the four conditions laid down by If. Delcasse yesterday s<=ts an impossible task for the Chinese Government in its present Ftraits, and tends to drive it at once to make terms with the Boxers and Prince Tuan's party. ADVANTAGE OF AMERICAN POLICY. On the other hand, the Government, while not guaranteeing the truth of the advices from the Chinese Government as to the safety of the foreign Ministers, is willing to accept the state ments temporarily, in the mean time remitting none of its efforts to get access to Mr. Conger through the use of military force if need be. By following this policy the State Department argues that it retains two chances instead of one. It may rea^h Mr. Conger with troops, and it also may secure his deliverance through the friendly offices of some of the powerful Chinese officials, which the Powers are not likely to ob tain for their own people by following their present policy. It may be said, also, that the United States Government does not intend to relinquish any part of its claim for compensa tion and reparation in the ultimate settlement. Its position in that respect, it holds, will not be affected unfavorably by prosecuting its efforts to make use of the friendly sentiments of the Chinese officials. A particularly deplorable effect of the reason ing of the European governments on this point, in the. estimation of the State Department, is the abandonment of th Idea that th^re is a par ticular need for haste and for taking even des perate chances in the effort to get the interna tional relief column through to Peking. It is true that the latest advices from Taku indicate that, whereas tht 1 foreign commanders originally estimated the expedition could not start before August l.">, it is now regarded by them as pos sible to make a beginning about August 1. But the military experts here, who have been closely scanning all the reports from Tien-Tsin that appear to be worthy of credit, feel that even now the way is open to Peking, and that the march should begin with the force at present on the Pei-Ho, leaving the Powers to bring up reinforcements to reopen the base should thi first expedition be cut off. According to the latest official reports, the country around Tien- Tsin is clear of hostile Chinese. The flower of the Chinese army in that section has been de feated at Tien-Tsin, and these army experts calculate that its power is so broken that It cannot be reorganized in s^a^on to offer for midable resistance. So they argue that the time is ripe for a stroke of bold generalship. FRIENDLY IMPERIAL STATEMENTS. Further proof of an official character of the mistake made by foreign commanders in the at tack on the Taku forts Is contained in a com munication Just received by the State Depart ment from United States Consul Fowler, at Ch<>- Foo. He has transmitted an Imperial edict which was Bent to him by telegraph by th** Chinese Governor of Shan-Tung, Yuan Shi Kal, at Tsl-Nan, the capital of the province. It was Issued on July 17, and relates to th*» present hos tilities between China and the foreign Powers. The dispatch containing the edict cams to th* State Department in such confused phraseology that it was impossible to do more than approxi mately state its sense The edict appears to state In beginning that owing to the trouble existing between the Chris tians and the pop llace. and to the leisure of the Taku forte, which aroused th« military to arm«, , ....tin"' «l on third p«K<- cnr» your Cough at ita beginning with JAYNETS EXPECTORANT.- Advt.

[BT TELEGKAm I" THB TMBCNB.] Washington, July 22. — The I'nited States <;o\» ernment is forced Into the position to-day of de pending whollj on the Chinese to rescue the lega tions, and all present efforts ar? concentrated in that direction by bringing every influence to bear or. th" high officials throughout China who have exhibited a friendly disposition to foreigners. It is recognized by the President ;uid his immediate suboidinates in the direction of affairs that the Inmates of the legations. If not already destroyed, cannot be relieved by the armed intervention of the allies for several weeks at least, and the most optimistic cannot believe that the British Lega tion could hold out so long without substantial assistance from Chines- sources, especially as the confidence of officials is complete in Conger's message that the bombardment of shot and shell was continuous a week ago. The authorities have reluctantly reconciled themselves to the hopeless ness of a quick advance from Tien-Tsin, which, to be effective, would have to be executed with such celerity as to cut off the army which was whipped a week ago and which is now presuma bly retreating upon Peking, where its infuriate] strength may bo promptly thrown against tv..-. Imperial forces, ar.il :n co-operation with th>> hordes besieging th~ foreigners result in the im mediate crushing of the resistance behind the British Legation walls, already weakened by the long strain. TERIL GROWING IX PEKING This view, which has a much firmer ground in the offi. ial mind than more surmise, makes the Peking situation mor* perilous than it ever has been since the Taku forts were taken, and car ries the conviction that the general massacre so oft<=n feared to have actually taken place cannot now be postponed for more than a day or two at the utmost unless rescue can he accom plished at once. The sole conceivable resource of this Government, under these circumstances. lies in th<> mm who declare they carried the message to Conger and brought his response. If it is true that they forged the dispatch, then all hope is absolutely abandoned; and. according to those who continue to declare that the mes sage was spurious, any further dealing tween American officials and the forgers would be revolting to National honor. Perhaps it may eventually prove fortunat" that more reliance waS placed on that test mes sage than on the allied forces in saving the Diplomatic Corps and their households for it may be stated authoritatively that no 'induce ment is being omitted by the United States to encourage the Viceroys and other Chinese of ficials who have evinced an amicable disposition toward this country to exert all their influence to stem the F.'.xer movement and restore order at I'eking. • Tl^ T '«. ltM ?tatPS i- c to-day practically alone in this eftort-a fact which adds much to its ef fectiveness, for the officials to whom the appeal is mad.- appreciate the absence of ulterior mo- Uves on the part of this Government, and that Its guarantee alone holds the Powers to the open door policy and all that \s> for China's best interest. It has been this exhibition of reliance on Chinese officials, at a time when no oth>r reliance was possible, it is believed, that has pre vented the destruction of foreigners and their property at Canton. Shanghai, Foo-Chow and other ports, and having cultivated this confi dence of the j.-ading Chinese officials when the rest of the world derided them the Cnit^i States has now found itself in a position to secure their co-operation when every other re source fails. •oi.D RECEPTION FOR LI.

The native officials sent an escort of three hundred armed troops, but as the French Consul objected to their passing through the French settlement they were withdrawn, and Earl LI landed under an escort of twelve French police. Once out of French jurisdiction, he was handed over to the Cosmopolitan Settlement's police, uho escorted him to his plact- of residence.

SL'ERXANIO AN ANARCHIST HE WAS DRAWN BY THE GRAND AND BRAVE SOCIETY TO KILL PESSINA Paterson, N. J . July '-'2 (Special). —A learned Italian of this city has made public a literal translation of the letter found on Carboni Sper nanio. the murderer md suicide, and the missive reveals the motive for the tragedy of Wednesday last at Riverside. As has been thought, it was the work of Anarchists, of whom, it appears, there is a well organized body in this city. Joseph Pes> sina, believed to be one of the best color dyers in this country, had been singled out for death. and Spernanio. who had recently, according to his own statement, been drawn by lot to kill the King of Italy. was chosen to do the slaying. Pessina. who was a well to do and cultured Itnlian, held a place of trust with the Weidman Silk Dyeing Company, and as foreman there had full control of several hundred men, mostly his fellow-countrymen. The foreman had incurred the enmity of his employes owing to his harsh methods, and at <->ne time was compelled to ttee to Italy. The society had served notice upon him to leave the place. Pessina's home, at No. 1" Shady-st , resembled a fortress. The house, surrounded by spacious lawns, was hidden from view by a high fence, and all visitors were inspected through a small aperture before being admitted. He spent most of his time when not at work with his wife and three children at home. A few years ago he brought his two nephews here from Italy, and later banished them, as he had learned that they had anarchistic tendencies, and by this action he further incurred the displeasure of the local Italian colony. Spernanio, the murderer, was a favorite with his race. At a meeting in Bunker Hill Park he would wave t'ne red flag and cry, "Death to all tyrants!" On Monday of last week he gave away his watch to a little girl, and, packing his trunk, told his boarding mistress that she could have it if he should disappear suddenly. He had been preparing for th» murder in ad \ ance. On Wednesday night he had his opportunity. Meeting Pessina near the dyeworks, he fired hots at him. Spernanio was nervous, and the firs' two shots failed of their mark. The third entered Pepsina"s breast. The murderer then walked calmly away, followed by a score of excited people. Before he left Pessina's body some one cried "Is he dead?"' and a bystander replied: "If h~'s not. some one els° will shoot him." Spernanio was found in a ewamp near the Erie Railroad bridge. After he had aimed his revolver at his pursuers and scattered them, he tired a bullet into his own brain. The letter in the murderer's pocket tells of his being ordered to do the killing by the Grand and Brave Society to which he belonged. He was excused from killing Italy's King on the condition that he would work the will of the society here. He was content to choose Pessina. l\^ preferred killing himself to allowing the "Cannibal Americans" to cut off his head. He closes the letter by advising his countrymen to do th'ir duty when they are in a secret society or resign. FORTFXEB FROM THE KLONDIKE. RETURN OF SOME OF THOSE WHO HAVE SUCCEEDED IN MINING on TRADING. Victoria, B. C. July U2 (Special).— The steam er Amur, the richest treasure ship of the season, bringing $1,000,000 In gold dust and ninety pas sengers, most of whom have made fortunes In the Klondike, either in mining or trading. reached here this afternoon. Besides the gold there were, of course, many drafts, representing another $1,000,000 in dust, which the passengers had disposed of before leaving Dawson. Among the richest on board were Robert Anderson, who located the Government conces sion <m Hunker Creek, in which a number of Vancouver men are interested, and out of a pocket in which $90,000 was taken; Mr. Hart, owner of the Discovery, on Bonanza Creek; Mrs. Neilson, who has made $100,000 out of the Yukon Hotel. Dawson, and who is on her way to Sweden; H. McLaughlin, a Bonanza claim ownt-r; C. Implant, who owns the Discovery, on Lasi Chance; Turner Townsond. who has just disposed of a ton of tobacco and cigars in Daw son. Mrs Shute wife of ihe senior partner of Shute & Mills, who took $400,000 out of four claims on Gold Run, and the Cassldy brothers, who have just sold one claim on French Hill for an Immense sum. These m--n estimate the year's output of the Klondike at $25,000,000, taking Into account the fact that th* claims are now being worked sum mer and winter. There is still a great deal of grumbling over the I<> per cent royalty, which the miners say makes It impossible to work some of the richest claims at a profit. NICARAGUA WILL NOT EXHIBIT.

July 22. A d«nse fog huns? n\*t the Irish Channel yesterday morning and th* Cunard Line steamer Campania, on the way for Liverpool from N'ew-Y-<rk. struck the Liver pool bark Embleton. bound fr, r X- a -Zealand. amidships, cutting her in twain The Embleton sank immediately Seven of the crew were rescued, but it is believed t)w» eleven oth*»r members of the ship's company, including the captain, were drown The Campania had her bows stove in. bat arrived safely at Liverpool five and a half hours late. SERIOUS DISASTER NARROWLY ESCAPED The Campania was little Injured, but had a narrow escape from a serious disaster. The fog had delayed her passage since Friday noon, and a tender went out from Queenstown four miles, as Captain Walker would not take the liner near shore. The Embleton was loaded with explosives. At Tuskar Light the fog was becoming denser every minute. When the Campania was about thirty miles northeast of the light a phantom ship rose without warning directly across her bows. Thirty seconds later th« phantom had become a solid sailing vessel, into which the liner crashed, her steel fore foot going through the Embleton like, th« clean cut of a sword and dividing her Just abaft the mainmast. The forward half sank instantly. The stern swung viciously around, and the mast and yards for a moment torn at the Campania. A lump of wreckage cam* down on her decks. Then the stern of th« bark also disappeared, and the surface of the sea was littered with splintered timbers, boxes, barrels, the whole upper works and • lighter cargo, the deckhouses and such things. Then there was nothing. From the instant when the phantom came into view from the bridge of the Campania until the last vestige of the vessel vanished only sixty or eighty seconds had elapsed. According to the Embleton'3 survivors, for nearly half an hour before the collision the captain and first officer were below at break fast, and, although the fog whistle of a large steamer could be heard every minute, the bark never shifted her course, the helmsman receiving no order. When, at 5:25 a. m , the second officer, to use his own words, "heard the rush of a -steamer's bows." he shouted down to the cap tain, who rushed en deck, but h<» was too late to give an order. The Campania was under one-third steam. The captain, first officer and pilot were on the bridge. The engines were instantly reversed and the helm put hard down. No precaution ■;■.-.■ •_"■■ ■ ■ ' ■" • ■ ' ■ • ■ "■-■*-• - ■ ' ■■ ■ was omitted. Some of her passengers had even ■ ... - grumbled at whit they called superfluous cau tion. After the crash and the sudden cries the boats were quickly cot out. There were no .-•■-■.■-. ■,! ,« ■■■ ■ signs of panic, the crew were everywhere at their stations, the best discipline was main tained. the bulkheads wen closed, and every thing possible was d<">ne to save life. Some of the Campania's plates were bent by the collision, her forepeak was filled with water, her foretopmast was broken short off and her steel rigging was torn and twisted. The passengers held a meeting, adopted reso lutions of thanks to the captain and crew and subscribed £700 for the relief of the survivors and the families of the lost. The Cunard officials announce that the dam age suffered by the liner will not prevent her sailing for the United States next Saturday. \. > WOBD TO AGENTS HERE.
