Yl'ACJ I.li TO ESCORT ENVOYS. Iondon, Aug. C, la, m. The Shanghai cor respondent of the Daily Mall announces tho reception of an imperial edict dated August 2, ordering General Yung Ly to select high military and civil dignitaries, together with a sufficient number of picked troops, to es cort tho foreign Ministers to Tien-Tsin as soon as they decide to leave Pekin. By the terms of the edict. General Yung l.u will be held personally responsible for their safety, and he Is given full authority to loa summarily with those opposing the peaceful passage of the escort. "By s-uch acts." concludes the edict, "do we shew our good intentions to people from afar and open our bos-oms to them." MOULT) CHANGE SITUATION. ItHl'UEIL.lC SPECIAL. Washington. Aug. 5. No confirmation can be obtained here of the Shanghai dispatch by way of 1'aris telling of another edict, dated August 2, being handed to tho Con suls by Shcng, in which the Ministers are authciir.ed to communicate without re strictions with their Governments, and or dering them, to depart for Tien-Tsin under .escort. ""S5ouId it be true that -such an edict has been Wsued tho entire aspect of the situa tion In China would be changed. It would mark the beginning of a complete surrender to the Powers. Unrestricted communication with the Min isters is the demand of Secretary Hay as preliminary to any negotiations regarding the advance on IVkin or the settlement of the trouble between China and the Powers. President McKinley and Secretary Hay did not contemplate, however, that in comply ing with this demand China should force tho Ministers to quit Pekin and go to Tien Tsln. They said in effect: "Open us communication with the Min isters so that we can learn from them tho situation in Pekin and ascertain whether they wish to leave that city and go to Tlcn Tsln. We cannot consent to the Ministers being sent to TIcn-Tsin unless they are perfectly satisfied that they would be safe." The attitude of the United States on tho proposition of sending tho Ministers to Tien Tsin, as thus expressed, has been firmly Impressed unon the Chinese Government, both through Minister Wu and Li Hung Chang, and St Is believed the position of the other Powers is the same. Having once surrendered so far, however, as to open up communication with the Min isters, It is not doubled that China would go farther. It would afford an opportunity for th. opening of negotiations through thu regular diplomatic channels. In tho mean time the international forces at Tien-Tsin would bo steadily augmented by the re enforcements which eacli Power Is hurry ing forward, and if the Powers should finally consent not to march on Pekin with their forces, it would be because China, realizing the hopelessness of opposition, had granted every demand. MUST ACT IN TWENTY-FOUR HOURS. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Washington, Aug. 5. If China ignores r:T twenty-four hours longer the ultimatum of tho United States, demanding, as a matter of right, not of favor, that communication with Minister Conqer in Pekin be restored. President McKinley will start more Ameri can troops from the Philippines and the United States for China to compel compli ance with our demand. This Ss the situa tion to-night. Consul Goodnow's dispatch, which was le celved at 4 this morning, was telegraphed to the President at Canton. Tho President replied immediately, instructing the State Department officials to confer with the Sec retary of War. It is evident that the Sec retary of War could not be found, and that the State Department proceeded to act on Its own authority, from the fact that the fololwing dispatch was forwarded to Can ton: "Washington, Aug. 5. 3:43 p. m. To the President. Canton, O.: Unable to confer with Secretary of War to-day. Have cabled Consuls at Shanghai, Chc-Foo and Tien Tain that action of the Chinese Government in shutting oft communication with Conger Is regarded by the President as unfriendly act. and that United States demands com munication be Immediately restored, China to bo held responsible for failure to reopen correspondence." It is assumed, in the light of tho State Department's reply, that the President had given specific instructions on the strength cf the Goodnow dispatch that the War De partment be prepared to act at once in a great emergency. The situation is, then, that the President demands an Immediate opening of communi cation with Minister Conger. The Presi dent has taken this bold step for two po tent reasons: First, to uncover the hidden moves of Chinese diplomacy, and secondly to be in position to know whether or not U will be necessary to call Congress together In extra, session. If China rejects the ultimatum, troops will bo sent from the Philippines" and from the United States, and their place.-, filled by volunteers, to be provided by Congress ESCORT FOR MINISTERS. " Washington, Aug. 5. A belated message Undo SaminvHl: '-Tiosli! As long as I'm cloUied in my right mind I liopo T'll never get to follow ing THAT shirt waist fashion. from Minister Conger was received to-day at the State Department. It came through Con sul General Goodnow at Shanghai, who transmitted me"ages received by Mr. Rags dale, United States Consul at Tien-Tsin, from Mr. Conger and Mr. Squires-, secretary of the United States Legation at Pekin. The advices ate the same as those received a day or two ago by the State Department from Consul Fowler, at Che-Foo. Mr. Good now's message was transmitted to President McKinley at Canton, and Mr. Adee, Acting Secretary of State, later in the day Issued the following statement concerning it: "Consul General Goodnow, in a cablegram dated Shanghai, August 3, which was re ceived at the Department of State at 4 o'clock this (Sunday) morning, reports the receipt by Consul Hagsdale, at Ticn-Tin. of messages from Minister Conger and the sec retary of legation, Mr. Squires, dated July 51, to the following effect: " 'All well; no fighting since the ICth by agreement. Enough provisions. Hope for speedy relief.' "Mr. Goodnow adds that the Director of Posts, Sheng. had on the Stli communicated to .'lim an imperial edict, dated July ). or dering Jung Lu to provide an escort for the Ministers to Tien-Tsin, when the Ministers fix the date. The edict says the Ministers can receive messages not in cipher, but, not withstanding this plain messages were re turned to some Consuls on August 4." Hay Not Yet AnaTVcrciV The Stato Department has taken the cround that the dispatch from the Tsnng Li Yamen. delivered at the department yes terday by Minister Wu. U not an answer to the dispatch of Scrctary liny, sent on August 1. In that dispatch Secretary Hay finally and decisively insisted that fr.c com munication with the .Ministers must he ts tablished before any steps would lie taken bv this Government toward a peaceful so lution of the present trouble. That dispatch was sent to Consul Gen eral Goodnow- to be by him transmitted to Li Hung Chang. The message delivered by Minister Wu to the State Department rela tive to the Inhibition of cipher dispatches wa sent by tho Tsung Li Yamen on July SO. As of that date it had already been communicated to the department by Consul Fowler. Obviously, therefore, it could not be a reply to the dispatch pent to Mr. Good now by Secretary Hay on August 1. A definite reply to the Secretary's dispatch of tho 1st inst. is awaited with some con cern, not to say anxiety. It is the final word of the United States Government in the pending negotiations. Tho demand must be acceded to if trouble of serious character is to be averted. MILES WOULD GO TO CHINA. RHPUHLIC SPECIAL Washington, Aug. 5. It was learned to day on excellent authority that Lieutenant General Nelson A. Miles had recently ap plied for service in China. His application has not been granted, nor is there any likelihood that it will be. War Depart ment officials say that General Chaffee was sent to China to command tho American, troops, and to remove him at this timo would be a reflection upon his conduct of affairs. Friends of General MIIcb say, on tho other hand, that General Miles, in addition to his experience and ability, has the rank to meet tho commanding officers of other troops upon tho same footing. They even go so far as to assert that General Milcs's reputation would go far toward causing tho commanders of other columns to defer to his judgment, and the result would be a more effective co-operation. General Miles declines to discuss the atti tude of the War Department upon his ap plication, though he admitted that he had indicated his willingness to serve In the Far East. He thinks the situation in China Is most serious, and, setting aside all question of his own wishes, he is making every effort to equip General Chaffee's command to stand tho rigors of the climate and operate effectively. There will be no delay by the War De partment in getting le-enforcements to China. The schedule thus far made out con templates the departure of troops as fol lows: On August 7, the Garonne, with two squardons of FUst Cavalry and recruits; August 16, tho Warren, with two squadrons of Ninth Cavalry and recruits; August 22, the Belgian King, with siege battery, re cruits and animals; August 25, the Rose crans, with two batteries of Seventh Ar tillery and recruits. For the additional troops under orders to go to the Far East, General Ludington will have available the Logan, which will be ready to sail on September 1; the Thomas, September 16; the Grant, October 1. and the Sheridan, October 16. It will, therefore, be unnecessary to charter any additional trans ports. During the last week he has char tered six ships. General Ludington has Instructed Quar termaster Jacobs to buy 2,000 horses and 170 pack mules for use In China. He has direct ed that 1,100 pack mules in Cuba and Porto Rico be returned to the United States and shipped to Asia. These mules are seasoned and are therefore more valuable than those now being bought. General Chaffee is be lieved to have a pack train of 100 mules at Tien-Tsin. and 250 are now on the way. Large supplies of forage for both horses and mules are being sent to Taku, TRIED TO KILL AN ENGLISHMAN. First Overt Act Against Whites at Shanghai sians and Americans Fall Out at Tien-Tsin. London. Aug. 6, 4 a. in. A Shanghai dis patch, dated August 4, says: "The first overt attack upon foreigners oc curred this morning. Three Chinese, sup posed to be soldiers in disguise, fired at a j weu-Kiiown cngnn rt'Muum wnuc uc .- lying asleep on the veranda of his house. He had a narrow escape." Yokohama advices say that General Ter auchi has reported to the Japanese Govern ment that it is not ndvlable to send more troops to China, declaring that trc united force is now ample to relieve the foreign ers in Pekin. Chinese messages assert that, in addition to causing tho execution of high function aries of pro-foiclgn tendency, Li I'lng lleng bus impeached LI Hung Chang, Liu Kun Yl, Viceroy of Nankin, and others on a charge of maintaining relations with foreigners. A Tien-Tsin dispatch dated August 1, to Berlin, gives a report of an imperial edict issued July "7, ordering the recapture of Taku and Tien-Tsin by troops from Shan Tung and the South. Detailed accounts of the reconnob-sance of July 30 say that the enemy's guns that were attacked near Pei-Tsang were only the advanced post, and Pei-Tsang, it is be lieved, can only be captured after a hard struggle. General Gaselee and his staff accompanied tho reconnolssance, but no Blrtish troops were cnesaged. RUSSO-A.MERICAN QUARREL. A dispatch to the Morning Post from Che Fo.o, dated July 30, says. "The Russians at Tien-Tsin refuse to al low the Americans to put up telephone j wires on tno rauroau poles, anu tney claim the railroad, which English engineers r.re ready to work. "The situation is critical. The river is full of railroad sleepers. Hundreds of dead bodlra of Chinese, some decapitated, are flouting in the stream." Four more missionaries, according to Shanghai advices dated Saturday, have been murdered near Hankow. . The Tien-Tsin correspondent of tho Times, wiring July 31, says: "The previous decision to move to-morrow has been reversed. It is reported that the American commander is unwilling to ad vance until he is re-enforced. The Japan ese reconnolssance yesterday aparently In clined them to favor waiting for further re enforcements. The Russians and French acquiesced. "General Gaselee Is anxious to advance, but. his command Is so small only 3,000 that he cannot take the lead. The date for the departure of the expedition Is, therefore. uncertain." Commenting upon this dispatch, tho Times says: "It is perhaps inevitable, although un doubtedly disappointing, that the advance should be delayed." It will be noticed that the dispatch to tho Dally Express announcing that the troops had started Is dated two days later than the dispatch to tho Times, and two days later than any other dispatch pub lished in London this morning. There Is no way of verifying the statements of tho Daily Express correspondent. They must simply be taken for what they are worth. . FORTIFYING POSITIONS. Chinese Get Beady at Pekin to Meet Allies.

"The main body -of the allies," continues the correspondent, "marched July 30. General Chaffee was delayed by ditiieulties of disembarkation.

No official Information has reached here regarding the movements of the troops be lieved to have landed at Shan-Hal-ICwan. It is generally thought that a column i3 proceeding or will proceed over the fine road toward Pekin. Its operations will di vide tho Chinese lorce and make the task of the allies moving from Tien-Tsin much lighter than it now seems. It lb plain to the authorities that the Chinese are preparing to make a desperate resistance. The authorities are anxious that a crushing defeat ahall be inflicted on them not far from Tien-Tsin, as it may discourage them from making another stand, except behind the walls of Pekin.

SPECIAL BY CABLE. Paris, Aug. 6. (Copyright. 1900, by TV. It Hearst.) A separation is stated to hava taken place between the royal Princess Ma rie of Mecklenberg-Strelltz and her French hunband. Count Jnmetel. It Is regarded as probable that their matrimonial differences may be ventilated In the court3 here before long, in which case the circumstances which led up to the extraordinary union between a royal German Princess, a great-great-granddaughter of King George III of England, and the son 'of a French millionaire patent medicine manufacturer, will doubtless bo made public. The Princess, in consequence of a sensa tional adventure with one of her father's fobtmen, named Hecht. was forced to leave Germany and to live In retirement In France. At a seaside resort she made the acquaint ance of the Infanta Eulalle, who, pitylngp the girl and realizing that In view of what had taken place, she would have difficulty In finding a royal husband, suggested that she might be made happy by marrying young Jametel, who was staying at tho same watering place. The Infanta engineered the match, and after young Jametel had acquired by pur chase the title of Count from the Vatican the marriage took place at Kew, near Lon don, In the presence of several members of the English royal family. The Count soon offended the relatives of his wite by the vulgar manner in which ha sought to make social capital out of his marriage. The Princess sided with her rel atives and left her husband, and now th separation is about to be made irrevocable and final. s.
