The Conger dispatch fails to carry con

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.

Berlin View of Conger's Alleged Message and
Attitude of Southern Viceroys Avenging
Army of 115,000 Men.
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
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
