The Wisdom of Reinforcing United States Vessels in Oriental Waters Becomes Apparent. By the Associated Press. Washington, Sept. 28. Mail advices received here from China from sources especially entitled to credit of a date early in August are almost prophetic of what has already occurred there since that date, and if the predictions for the future hold good Secretary Herbert's action in largely reinforcing the United States warships in Chinese waters will be proved to have been a very wise move. The advice8 describe the measures which have been adopted by the Chi nese to block the navigation of their rivers and the resulting effect npon commerce. Numerous buoys and lights have been removed and obstructions placed at the mouth of the river Pei Ko. Although the discontinuance of lights and the presence at night of floating buoya and the laying of torpedoea are obvious hindrances to the cominz and going of vessels nevertheless with exception of the Chinese lines shipping is being carried on aa usual and there are no indications that mer chants are withholding their cargoes. Trade to ensue, however, ia being ad versely affected, an cipher telegrams are no longer accepted, although they can be sent from Shanghai. The feeling of timidity as to the safety of business ventures with Tien Tsin is naturally pervading the busi ness world. Chinese themselves will not block the port, but the Japanese are likely to do so at any time. An effort waa making to ensure immunity from the capture of Japanese and Chi nese vessels plying respectively be tween tbeir own porta and common to neutral port, but the consent of the Japanese had not at the date of the ad vices, been received.
