THE POLICY OF THIS NATION Is "On to Pekin" for the Protection of American Interests ? Wu's Document Subject of Concern. WASHINGTON, D. C.. July to Pekin," Is the policy adopted by our government. -It Is said that regard lea j of the Issues raised as to the authenticity of the last Chinese note, or the ficonrru'v nf lt? statement of fact or the question as to tlie responsibility for thr present situation our government at least is determined not to relax its efforts to reach .Pekln, to get in touch with Mr. Conger, if he Js alive, to take the necessary steps for the protection of American interests, and In tact to do all those things set out In Secretary Hay's note to the powers, including a reckoning with the person or persons responsible for the outrageous events of the past six weeks. TXVenty-four hours consideration of the Chinese note leaves the otllclals here convinced'that it marks the beginning of a general effort on the part of the Chinese officials to relieve themselves from responsibility for the treatment of the foreign ministers and the fighting at Tien Tsln. That In Itself Is regarded as a hopeful sign of the approaching collapse or the "boxer" movement and the termination of th?* state of Insurrection that exists In P:; kin and Shan Tung. Victors do not apologize; hence the exculpatory statement yesterday is believed to be pregnant with meaning. Good Impression Will be Offset. The good Impression made by the edict of the Chinese government given out by Minister \Vu yesterday, threatens to be offset to some extent to-day, by the reports from London stating that Prince Tuan was the real author of this edict and that some of Its ino?-t forcible anti-foreign language was omitted from the version given out here. But at the Chinese legation these intimations from London are dismisse-3 as groundless. The dispatch was received here in Chinese that is, in the numerals by which the Chines* government transmits its official eoue messages. This In itself, it is said, indicates that it came with the sanction of those In imperial authority as the official code Is not known outside of this limited circuit. The translations will be required first, from the numerals to the Chinese and second, from the Chinese to the English. . These translations were made by the members of the legation staff here,' so that the ultimate text as made publ'c contained the phraseology adopted by the officials in this city. In making their translation they say they adhered literally to the telegraphic edict, so that the published text contains everything embraced ,'n the original. Does Not Sign His Name. When the emperor, ICwang Hsu Issues an edict, ho does not alirn his name.'I but his acta are authenticated with the seal, which in this case could not be cabled, so that the document was authenticated as coming from the privy council, the highest body of dignitaries in China and the one most closely associated with the imperial household. Following an invariable custom in time of disorder, the war ofl'.ce at Pekln was entrusted with furnishing the runners to carry the message to the imperial treasurer of Chill, who In turn, got it to Shanghai. From that point it was sent direct to the various ministers the world over, coming to Washington direct, Instead of by the usual route of London. Under the foregoing circumstances, the Chinese oflleials regard it as established beyond the slightest question that the edict Is a bona-flde expression from the Imperial government of China and moreover that it Is complete as given out here without the anti-foreign addenda sought to be pu Into it In other quarters. A TERRIBLE VEIL Of Silence Enshrouds Pekin?Number of Snanglial Rumors?Allies Sold to Havo Been Defeated. LONDON, July 13, 4:10 a. in.?A terrible veil of silence enshrouds Pekln and there Is nobody but believes the worst has happened. It Is taken for granted that all the powers have exhausted everv means to iret dlroct nnww from their legntlons and the fact that their efforts have been In vain, leaves but one Interpretation. The Chinese representatives In Berlin denies the statement that LI Hung Chang had sent to him a hopeful telegram. lie says that, on the contrary, no direct telegram has been received by him from LI Ilung Chang for some time past. The day's news Is again restricted to the usual crop of untrustworthy Slmnghnl rumors, the most serious of wh'oh. reported by the correspondent of the Express Is to the effect that Europeans arc directing the Chinese* mllltnry operations. The correspondent asserts that Captain Bailey, of II. M S. Au?ora, distinctly saw n man In European garb dl reeling the Chinese artillery operations outside of Tien Tsln. European Parties to tho Plot. Foreign refugees from Tien Tsln openly accuse a European ofllcial whoso name the Express correspondent suppress^, and Colonel Von Hanncken, who wns formerly employed to drill tho Chinese troops, of being parties to a plot to procure the escape of General Chang and themselves from Tien Tsln before tho bombardment, leaving the other foreigners to their fate. Htatoments are In circulation In Shiitmhal accusing the Hussians of Indiscriminate Hlaughter of friendly Chlncso non-combatants, without regard to ajje or sex. Tho manngor of a Chinese steamship company who has arrived In Shanghai, asserts that h2 only escaped from Tien Tsln by cutting off hla queue and donning European clothes.. It is stated that the Taotai of Shanghai protested to the powers, against theso Russian slaughters. Allies Said to Have Been Defeated. It is asserted thaV. the Buddhist priests throughout the empire' a.e propogatlng Prince Tuun's untl-forelgn gospel. News Is circulating throughout thi Yang Tf?a valley that General Ma Ires Inflicted a crushing defeat upon the allies at Tien Tsln and that the foreign army has been cut to pieces east of P-kln. The actual Importance for the moment of the allied forces naturally give color to these stories w.th the worst results. The Shanghai correspondent of the Express gives Tien Tsln advices to July 8, when the superior r^rge of the Japanese artillery enabled them to relieve the Russluns, who were hard pressed a: Try station. STREETS PILLED WITH DEAD Bodies of Foreignera and Imperial Troops?Princo Tuan Celebrated. LONDON. July 13.?'The Shanghai correspondent of the Dally News says tue louowing siory regarding mu positlon In Pekln erriunates from Chlnc-su official sources: "The two remaining legations, the British and Russian, were attacked \v force on the evening of July G, Prince Tuan being In command. The attack.ers were divided. Prince Tuan commanded the center, the right wing was led by Prince Tsal Yin and the left by Prince Yin Liu. The reserves were ui.der Prince Tsln Yu. ."The attack commenced with artillery fighting, which was severe and lasted until 7 o'clock In the morning, by which time both legations were destroyed and all the foreigners were dead, while the streets around the legations were full of the dead bodies of both the foreigners and Chinese. "" "Upon hearing of th.? attack Prince Chlng and General Wang Wen Shao went with troops to the assistance of the foreigners, but they were outnumbered and defeated. Both Prince Ch?ng and General Wang Wen Shao were killed. "Two foreigners are said to have escaped through the gates, one with ,a heavy sword wound In his head. "Prince Tuan, in celebration of th? victory, distributed 100,000 taels and huge quantities of rice to the boxers." o?o BRIEF MENTIONINGS. Events in and About the City Given in p. Nutshell.
