China's attack upon Siberia. It is cljimed In KiiRlish diplomatic circle, was e,iuscsl 1 the sudden chanqe in the attitude of Itussla. which is now maklns overtures to the Towers of a most cordial and ion- tiliatory nature. It was Russia that Mocked the scheme of bavins the Japanese take the lead in the march on Pekin with a full force, as pro posed by Kngland, according to the diplo-jn-its here While most of the other Kuropenn Power orproved it. Russia refused her. consent to the plan, it is asserted, and it had to be nbandoned. Now Russia is scared and ex presses her entire willirRness to Jo'n in nny concert and play her part fairly and Equarely Formal communications havo been made io tho various Government of this tenor, and it is hoped in official circles that the announcement of complete accord will be made In a few das. each Power asreelnc to drop all designs asainst each other Jnd work honestly toseUicr to settle the Chinese affair, Contrndlctcd li Pncts. As a matter of fact, however, these state ments are not borne cut by the facts. When the proposition was made to allow Japan, owinc to her proximity to the scene of trouble, to land .more than her quota of trooj in China, ind take the lead in the advance on Pekin, all the Tower? agreed to It. Russia was most hearty in approving the scheme. Ti-aaEnsIan.l. hrj-j.'-. -APiP4 J,tn there exists a secret treaty of alliance, pro posed to the Power3 that Japan be given mandatory power to settle the China diril culty. To this Russia did object, and objected most strenuously. Kngland then appealed to Germany to use her Influence to secure Russia's con s' nt to Japanese supremacy In the opera tion and settlement of the outbreak. Germany replied in diplomatic language. but with a strong accent, that she would do nothing- of the kind. Japan, not being' Riven mandatory power, has held back, and some even hint that England Is holding her back. Now that the Culled -tales are leaguing Kith England. Russia may be forced. In the Interest of humanltv. to waive her ob jection to Japanere authority and save the Ministers, the women and children and their bravo def-nders from the fur of the Chinese mobs. Continental Jiiropc'N Coalition. Kverethinff goes to show that Ru-sii, Germany and Prance are proceeding under a well-deflned agreement In working out their own ends In China. It is not im probable that this known fact is. to a large extent, responsible for the lengthy commu nications luiw passing between London and Washington, as Great llritaln. to emerge with unimpaired prestige, needs the support of the Cnlted States, and official state ments to tha effect that none of the Pow ers desires partition have little effect in lessening- the likelihood of that event. Un less the United States vigorously supports Tirltain In opposing dismemberment of the Empire. Lord Salisbury will not be able to prevent it. and this fact is appreciated by all Knslish statesmen Genuine lint Valueless. The Conger dispatch fails to carry con viction to cither the llritish prra or pub lic Its g nuinenes-. Is not disputed, for. as Is pointed out here, the Chinese mnt po fs quite a sneaf of s.uch messages, whiili the Ministers fruitlessly endeavored to pet transmitted, from which the could easily select a noncommittal dispatch to serve me required purpose. It is supposed lliat Sir. Conger omitted to destroy the Ipher code, and that this Is now hi the possession of the "hlnec. In which event the selection or e-oiicoction of the dispatch would not be dliiicult. It is ar gued that the dli-palch, if it were a genuine reply to the inquiry of ;-he American Gov ernment would go more into details. A t-light ray of hop is admitted in the f-ict that both Mr. and Mrs. Conger are known to have been on very friendly terms with the I"mpres Dowager, but the universal opinion here is that If the dispatch is gen uine, the date is falsified. The Spectator says: "It matters nothing whether the Empress Dowager or Prince Tuan is the reigning monarch. Both are devoted to the extirpa tion of foreigners, and not one of the Vlce rojs will dare oppose the anil-foreign policy. "The plot hus covered the whole Umpire.

Perhaps for Mr. Conger's message a supreme effort was made. It Is very likely thn Chinese do not re-alize the atiK iety existing in Europe for direct com munication with the Ministers, but there Is, so far as I can sec. no reaso-i why one Minister should be able to communicate with his Government any morn than an other." Irqulries in official circles disclose a com plete skepticism as to the trustworthiness of Minister Wu's information. Mesaces from Chinese sources are so contradictory that it Is impossitde to put credence in them. It is pointed out tint n month has now claped since anything ha been heard from the llritish Legation In Pekin. If messages can go one way they ought obviously to another, but unfortunately it has been im possible, by this country at all events, in Induce the Chinese authorities to get any message through to the foreign Ministers in Pekin, or to transmit any intelligence from them to Europe CHAFFEE'SQUARTERMASTER.

Berlin View of Conger's Alleged Message and Attitude of Southern Viceroys Avenging Army of 115,000 Men. i Rerliri. July 20 The German Government feels confluent that the present attempts by Chinos.: officials to deny the I'ekln massacre are insincere and dictated solely by a dtslre to hamper" and retard the power of the Joint action of tho Powers. At the Chinese Legation here, where alao denials of the mass lcre have arrived from the. Viceroys, the statement was made to day to th- correspondent of the Associated Press that the Chinese Minister himself, Lu Hal Ilounn. has In no she replied to the rtcent prohibition by the Foreign Office of his use of the telegraph for secret message", but he has lnce sent to Count von Ituelow several telegrams for approval, which has been granted. The Foreign Office considers that t he gravest point In the situation Just now Is the doubtful attitude of the Southern and Central Viceroys, with the v!d-nt spre id of the anti-foreign hostilities. The n"wK received here Is very meager, but It all points, to tr achery and to a cunning policy of procrastination by tie Viceroys until the moment shall have ar rived when they can afford to discard tint policy. Yuan Shi Kal. Governor of Slian-Tunf:. is regarded here as worse than unreliable. The Foreign Office feels giid that all the'o Chinese rusts have not succeeded in blinding the I'owers or in retarding their serlou-. military preparations Ofliclal circles deny a number of storic3 printed by the English press, stories which the Foreign Office characterizes as made of the same cloth as many that were set afloat during the Spanish-American War ami the earlier stage-s of the hostilities In South Afr.cn. The only story having nny foundation, ac cording to the Foreign Office, is the ques tion of who Is to l.e the Commander-in-Chief In China, which is now engaging; the attention of the Powers. Kigarding this a Foreign officii! raid to-day! "The suggestion to make Iyird Wolseley or Mm other English officer the Commander-in-Chief does not meet with ap proval anywhere.

One of thes- officials said to-night: "Note, first, that the dtspitch Is not dated. "You will remember that the Japanese Legation in Washington Wednesday re ceived n dUpatch. that had been sent from Pekin June 2s, by the Japanese Minister. It was practieilly identical with the Con ger mess-ace 'legations under fire; little hope, immediate relief or massacre "" "Now. Is It not a reasonable supposition that each Minister in Pekin sent such a tnessug,. to h's Government at that time I am sure that they did. and that all of them were held up by Chinese officials -even the Japanese Minister's cablegram. for the dispatch he got through came by courler to th coast.

All these tlrcumstuutlal siories stated that the foreigners were congregated In the llritish Legation; thai they held out. under heavy fire, until the night of July 6; that then, driven from the building, they fought all night In Pekln's stieeu When the sun rose July ? the last man fell.

"I regard such a suggestion as dealing with possibility too remote to be seriously considered." replied the secretary. "I am of the opinion that outsiders could not have mado use of our code, and beside", the na ture of the reply, with Its strong appeal for immediate relief, is such as would not have been sent by any one seeking to conceal a catastrophe to the foreigners in Pekin." The use of the word "troops" in Minister Conger's dispatch Is considered at the State Department its most significant feature. In the first place it shows that the dispatch was not tampered wit" iy the Chinese au thorities, because It would have been to their interest to substitute some other word and make It plain that the soldiers who were shelling the British Legation were rebels and not under imperial control.
