"Washington wr. 2J While the die-ion of the riexldent not to eo to Chicago dvs not .signify that he contemplate tailing Congress, together In t.t'a session, it indi cates that the po.-Ibllity of s-uch action becoming necess.u -s lenllzed Heretofore, as grave a- the Chinese vituatton has W en, cor.ditionh hje not li-.-:. .-ueh as to com pel him to rem-nn in Washington. At Can ton hf hat. been in constant communication by telephone and was able to conduct pub lic buslnes- from thei n he would have been at tho White House. The pressing necessity of his remaining in Was-hington has developed within the pa-t day or two. nv.ro the decision that he couH not go to Cnicago was not reached earlier than Yf!terday, when h held a. long and Important conference with Secretary Root and Assistant Secretary Adet-. With the possibility of It becoming ntcesary to call an extra session of Congi", the ncc-wity of the President's remaln!ng"ln Washing ton would be aprarent. The Chinese affairs have reached that crisis where within twenty-four hours con ditions may take a turn one way or the other. So little is known of the disposition of tho Chinese Government that there l no means of Judging whether the reply sent to Li Hung Chang will be received In a compliant spirit or one of defiance, and the worst must be prepared for. A stage ha3 been reached where events move rapidly at the seat of military opera tions, and if there 1 not a speedy collapse of Cnineso resistance tho fact that war actually exists cannot long be ignored. o IVmiiorirluar. The United States Government has taien the lead in rep!ing to China that theie will to no temporizing negotiations and theie is every reason to believe the Powers will be united In this ham policy. The answer of the United States was quickly fellowed to-day by similar action on the part of the Germans. The Berlin Foreign Office delivered to the Chinese Min ister an answer refusing to fnter into ne gotiations on the ground that there was no evidence that LI Huig Chang's crdential; gave him suflicient power to act, and that nothlrg short of complete authority from the responsible rulers of China, the Em peror and Empress Dowager, could bo re garded as suflicient. The Japanese officials expressed their full conviction that Japan would take similar action If, indeed, such action had not al ready bten taken. The course of France and Great Britain has not been made known here, but there la thought to be no doubt that these Govern ments will decline to trtat with China at this time Each Government, however, is acting entirely on lli own responsibility, nnd there will be no piearrangement as to tlio reply. For that reason the German answer differs from the American, althougn the end TROOPS DIVERTED TO MANILA "Washington, Aug. 23. The important de velopment In the Chinese situation to-day was the decision of the Government not to send any more troops to China. AH the troops now at sea, amounting to about 4.000, together with those under orders for service in the Far East, which have not sailed, amounting to about 3,000 more, will bo sent to Manila. These troops will sail on the same route, and, upon touching at Nagasaki, will go on to Manila unless there aro developments in China not now ex pected, which would make their presence that country necessary. Secretary Root said to-day that no more troops wero being sent to China because they wero not needed. "With the arrival at Taku of the Hancock, and tho troops she carried. General Chaffee will have B,0)0 available men. which is deemed sufficient for all present purposes. The decision of tho department was not based upon any rec ommendation made by General Chaffee, but upon reports recelvrd by him, which made It apparent that no more troops were needed. Official Announcement. The announcement of the diversion of tho troops was made in tho following official bulletin, which was posted at the War De partment this evening: The Government has decided that unless required by future developments, no more troopB are to be sent to China. Orders have PEKIN COMMANDERS REPORT. St. Petersburg, Aug. 23, General Llne vltch, commander of the Russian troops In the Province of Pe-C!il-Ll, telegraphs to the Ministry' of Wars, as follows: "At 3 o'clock In the morning of August 14. our troops stormed the eastern gate of Pekln and were the first to enter tho city. The Russian flag was tho first hoisted on the walk The bombardment of the gate lasted fourteen hours. The Russians then scaled and occupied the wall. The Chinese, however, still held tho observatory and other towers, whence they subjected our troops to a heavy enfilading fire, until our infantry forced them to leave their posi tions. Our losses were: "Killed Colonel Antinkoff and twenty men. "Wounded General Wasilowskl, Colonel Modi and five other officers and 102 men." On the morrow the allied troops stormed and captured another gate and entered the city. "We found the Imperial Government had fled and that the legationers were in great straits." The dispatch concluded with describing the recent attacks on the legations. During the siege the inmates of the Rus sian Legation had five killed and twenty wounded. JAPS TAKE IMPERIAL PALACE. Washington. Aug. 23. The Japanese Lega tion to-day received the following advices from tho Foreign Office at Tokio, dated August 23: "The commander of trie Japanese fleet at Taku transmitted by telegraph on the 21st the report from Pekln as follows: " "The Japanese regiment which had been detailed early on the 15th for the purpose of protecting the Imperial Palace, had hard fighting all day, but to a decisive issue., firing on the palace nghtlng all day, but they could not bring it ns thev refrsilnnd from firing on the palace. On the following day. TUATION. a v A FEW HOURS WILL DECIDE A few hours will decide whether it is to be war or peace in China. By this time the American reply is in LI Hung Chang's hands. Earl LI now nos that this Government will not temporize; that he must produce full authorization from his Govern ment to settlo with the Powers and that his Government must at once demonstrate that it ii willing and able to end tho attacks on the for eigners troops and civilians In tint country. If the reply from this Government Is recohed in a hpirit of defiance, it probably will mean that the Powers will fail to bring about a peaceful solution. That the Government, however. Is hepcfiil of an early end to the dis turbed conditions In Pekln and else where l China is shown by tr.o fact that orders yesterday were srutil di verting troops en route 10 China to Manila.

A dispatch was received from General Chaffee lo-day. dated Tekln, August 18, which was not in response to the request sent him a few days ago to report the con ditions and requirements. General Chaffee did not report further fighting in Pekln, and for that resson the Washington officials feel assured that hostile demonstrations in tho Chinese capital have censed. The dis patch related largely to tranportalion con ditions, and stated that the railroad be tween Taku and Pekln could not be used at the present time, as portions of it had been destroyed by the Chinese. General Chaffee will co-operate with the other commanders In China In reconstructing the road for the use of tho allied forces. Gen eral Chaffee nlso reported tho telegraph which was constructed by tho Signal Corps from Tien-Tsln to Pekln Is frequently In terrupted, being cut, possibly, bv hostile Chinese. however, they took Its principal gate; and now the city Is almost entirely cleared of the enemy. " 'The Imperial family and the Ministers of State left for Sian-Fu five or six days ago, escorted by 3,000 troops, under Tung Fuh Slang.

'Prince Tuan's residence has been burnt down by the Japanese. The Japanese naval detachment which guarded tho Japanese Legation, lost during tho siege five killed and eight wounded.

DRINK-GRAZED MAN TERRORIZED A TOWN. John Walfor Shod the Blood Three Mon in the Streets of Millstadt, TIL of USED ICE TONGS AND A KNIFE. Opened One Victim's Cheek From Ear to Chin and Cut Another's Throat All Escaped Fatal Injury. John Walter, a farmer, bectnio crazed fiom drink yesterday evening and terror ized the town of .Millstadt. 111., assaulting two meii with a pair of Ice tonss and wounding another with a knife. The in juries he inflicted are painful and in each mrtanco will leave thtlr mark for life. Wnlter was overpowered by the City Mar shal, after he had defied the efforts of two of his victims to disarm him. He was fren zied, foaming at the mouth and shouting curses at the top of his voice. The -Marshal strapped him and locked htm In a cell In the city jail, where he con tinued his mad raim;s. W:tlter ilrst attacked Jacob Lippert, driver of a beer wagon, at Besse's saloon, strik ing him savagely with a pair of ice tongs, the sharp points penetrating the bcalp to the skull nt each blow. After felling Lippert, th sight of the blood which flowed from the driver's head imbued him w ith a detare for more victims and he started up the street, brandishing the ice tongs and screaming oaths in Ger man. People fled at his approach, the women and children being frightened bevond de fccrlption. Fred Niemeyer thought to disarm the in sane man, but Walter was too quick for him. With one swing of the tongs he cut Nieme.ver's cheek open Trom ear to chin. Knglebert Weber approached to aid Xie meyer. Walter drew a keen-bladpd knife from his pocket, opened it nnd slabbed Weber's throat, cutting a gash seen inchep long. The blade grazed the jugular vein and windpipe. Together Niemeyer and Weber tried to overpower Walter, but they would have br.en killed but for the timely arrival of the City Marshal, who, after a struggle, took the maniac Into custody and lodged him In the jail. The three victims suffered a serious loss of blood, but the phyIcian who dressed their wounds expressed the opinion that un less blood poisoning set In they would re cover. Walter had been drinking hard for Fevcral days and it is supposed that the heat un balanced his mind. CHINESE ROUTED. Culoni'l Wint's Furious On&Iaujrhl in Tien-Tsin. nv nnwix WILDMAX.

Comfort able ftiitl Attractive. VarleUcoloted and diverse-patterned shirt waist were the order of the evening with the men at a dance given at the old Pastime Club Hall by Miss M. Hardy last night. The rule was that no male wearing a coat would be allowed upon the floor, and the rule was a popular one because of tho heat and an apparent desire to dis play novelties in the shirt-waist line. In the early part of the evening there was some timidity on the part of the knlshts of the shirt waist, and thev evinced a desire to wear coats. This soon wore otf, however, and after the third or fourth dance tho balhoom presented an attrac ts e scene of moving color. The designs in the waists were almost as varied as the shades of color. There were plain fronts, box pleats, jokes and ruffles. Though the night wa:, warm, the dancers did not have the heated look which is generally observable at summer dances. Tho shirt waists enabled the male lnnpprs to benefit by every passing breeze, which . never would have penetrated the thickness of a dress coat and starched shirt bosom. ' Tho airy colors of the summer gowns worn by the girls were quite equaled by the costumes of their partner". , MIsh Hardy is an ndvocate of the shirt waist man. She holds that there is no logical argument npalnst a style of dress which combines beauty nnd comfort. She sajs that those who protest against the fashion would have protested aa loudly against coats if they were a novelty, she compared them with the people of a cer tain canton in Switzerland who consider any one homely who does not possess a goiter.
