Refugees who arrived to-ilay from Ticn
TIn bring tho following information:
"The ChLnese resumed the bombard
ment of the foreign quarter last Tuesday
and roncombatants were ordered that day
to leave. The bombardment is described as
the worst yet experienced, but there were
no civilian casualties, though many mar
velous escapes are reported.
"A force of British and Russians trieel to
silence the Cliinee Buns, but retired with
out effecting their object. Two guns from
the Terrible silenced the Chinese guns on
Thursday, but the artillery duel recom
menced on Friday.
"Two hundred refugee", mostly women
and children, left Thursday and Friday in
lighters towed by launches, and reached
Taku safely. Small bodies of Russians and
Japs were met at short intervals all the
way down. To their presence was due the
oaclflc demeanor of the Chinese. Several
burning villages were passed. They wire
supposed to have-been set on fire by Rus
sians, who occupy a fort midway between
Tien-Tsln and Taku, where they have a
torpedo-boat. Seven hundred Ras'ans are
occupying the railway and station at Tong
Ku. Japanese troops were landing at Taku.
"The Yorktown tcok twenty-five Ameri
can refugees on board. The Germans went
aboard a German warship, while the L.rit
ish were transferred to the Halnchl and the
Hal Loong. The former has re-ached Che

COLOSSAL CHINESE AltMIES.
London. July 10, 3:25 a. m. The allies at
Tien-Tsin are having an exceedingly un
pleasant time. The last engagement of
which news has come through occurred on
July 6. The Chinese artillery opened at
dawn. Their lire was more accurate aim
their ammunition better, the shells explod
ing with precision and setting fire to sev
eral building-". II. M. S. Ttrrible's guns
again quieted the Chinese, who, shifting
their artillery, reopened the attack in tho
afternoon, but a thunderstorm breaking,
tho Chinese suddenly quit. The allies Im
mediately ottacked and drove the Chinesd
from their works; but lost thirty killed or
wounded in so doing. The noncombatants
are leaving TIcn-TsIn and the opinion of a,
minority favors the military leaving also.
Stories of colossal Chinese armies gather
ing continue to worry not only the rank
and file, but the commanders, who admit
the uncertainty of reconnolsances and the
complete absence of an effective intelligence
department. Chlneso information la re
ceived with extrtmo distrust.
It is obvious that, though there are many
thousands of Chinese i.mpcd behind the
guns, nothing can be done at present except
to await the arrival of re-enforcementi

Berlin, July 9. The German Government
fears tho spread of the trouble in Siian-
Tung and distrusts the Shan-lung Govern
or, Yuan Shi Kal, and this feeling is con
firmed by Lu Hal Houan, who character
ized Yuan Shi Kill as "a devil known for

that tho destruction of the missions In
Shan-Tung, which were under the charge of
French and German Catholics and Ameri
cans, would not have occurred If Yuan Shi
Kal had be-en sincero In his professions, be
cause he had 8.o.t provincial trooi3 under

The Emperor is ordering more and moro

A division of new thirty-ton torpedo beats

for twenty-five years n missionary for the
Presbyterian Church in China, writes to
her sister. Mrs. R. S I'. Webster ot Brook
lyn, from Tung-Chow. May 29. 20 and SI. in
part as follows:
"Matters grow darker and darker all
about us. Word exmc- to-day that ono of
the railroad depots just out of Pekln (the
Pek'n termini for the roads are not al
lowed Inside tho city) was burned yester
day by the Boxers and the other is to be
burned to-day. Cars not running from
Tien-Tsin to Pekin or Pao-Ting-Fu to
Pekln. and no malls. One of the Methodist
out stations had three houses destroyed
and nine persons killed, we hear. London
mission suffered at one of their out sta
tions. At tho railroad station we- hear of
no foreigner being killed. A Frenchman
got into Pekin with a knifecut in the back
of tho neck. Foreign soldiers nre being
sent for, but what can they do when this
thing spreads all over the North nearly?
We do not know when our turn may eome.
We can hardly expect our e-ollege will es
cape; certainly not If we leave, and even
If we wished to go, where could we go?
Now that the cars have stopped, how could
w get away? The old way by boat would
bo very dangerous. No, we must stay
and Dray God to keep us. Some of the
gentlemen havo gone Into the city to get
oar highest officials to send a guard of sol
diers for both our places. Inside and out
side the city.
"May 20. Such an nntlou-t day an this
has been, and jet nothing has cornel The
promised soldiers do not come .1 few who
did not look like -?oldlers came, but without
guns. Now find the Taotal has none here
we rely alone upon God. Just after break
fast a number of us thought to walk Into
tho city to attend a prayer meeting, when
tho report came that the city was full of
Boxers and that they wero coming out to
loot our premises.
"One of the worst anti-foreign com
manders has I1I3 troops stationed from the
city gate out to tho railroad station. The
roldlers say they are not going to llcht
Boxers, but prevent any foreign soldiers
from entering the city. I guess it is pretty
evident that the Empress Dowager is at thu
bottom of this.
".May 21. All quiet during the night, nnd
to-day we har fewer rumors than we did
yesterday. A letter from our Minister this
noon comforts us. If necessary, when tho
fifty marines get to Pekln, ho will try to
send us a few does not certainly promise
but he says he will send down to the gun
boat nnd see If ho can get us some guns;
says ho has not so much as a pistol at tho
legation not being as well off as we are
here. One thing tho Boxers wish to d Is
to do away with everything foreign, and
so theyf have gone back to their old arms

Wu this morning to Secretary Hay and" the

Secretary Hay Is naturally disposed to
hope for the bes-t. but he does not know how
reliable Sheng's information is, and he Is
r.ot Inclined to rely on any Information ob
tained from Chinese sources until there Is
an absolute confirmation from a foreign
source In Pekin. Wu Ting Fang, the Chi
nese Minister, said this evening that he is
entirely satisfied with the correctness of the
"Sheng would not have sent the message,"
he continued, "had he not possessed accu

"I would not be surprised." MInUter Wu
said, "if tin re should be truth In the report

He Will Not Obey Unreasonable

Washington, July 9. Wu Ting Fang, the

"If tho Emperor and Empress Dowager

Tuan, with his Boxers, is In control of Pe
kln, then tho Government which I represent
Is for the present overwhelmed.
"While this state ot anarchy lasts I shall
obey no unreasonable orders. The Viceroys
of tho various Provinces feel as I do. and
until peace Is restored thej, too. will usa
their discretion in obeying orders. All are
loyal tho young Emperor. I have felt
anxious for the safety of tho Ministers ever
plnce the rumor reached us that the mob
was In control of Pekln. Tho few marines
in the city wero not sufficient to afford ade
quate protection against a disturbance of
"I cannot understand why the Ministers
did not leave when cdviscel by the Chinese
Government that it would be wlsn to do so.
Since their danger has become known I
have wondered that the foreign Towers did
not press to their rescue. There are now
SO.OoO foreign troops ashore, and, although
there may be a much larger number of Chi
nese between them and Pekin. they are not
consolidated, not properly trained, not well
"The mob In Pekln has evidently gotten
beyond the control of the Government. It
IS very unfortunate for China. The expla

on Pekin was carelully considered at to
day's Cabinet meeting.
An agreement was reached to say noth

ground that It would bo impolitic to make

the part of this Government to avoid being

pith of Admiral KcmpITs cemmunicatlon Is
the necessity of speedy re-enforeoments. If
quick action is desired, nnd on the latter
point there is not a dissentient voice among
tho Cabinet officers.
If re-enforcements are to he gotten to

General MacArthur Is to bo again called
upon to relieve the situation by dispatching
from the Philippines at least two regiments
in addition to the Ninth Infantry, already
sent to Taku.
It was said that the Cabinet officials con
sidered this subject and decided to give the
necessary orders looking to u replacement
of the troops withdrawn from General Mac
Arthur's command from the force going out
Trom the United States. None of the Cabl
rct officers would admit or deny this, so It
gained sonic measure of cr-slence. Unless
Japan Is to be left to do all of the lighting
in tha Immediate future. General Mac
Arthur must respond to this demand. Bj
