To Eeliove Themselves of tho Responsibility
for the Present Situation
of Their Government.
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
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
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.

LONDON, July 13, 4:10 a. in.?A terrible
veil of silence enshrouds Pekln
and there Is nobody but believes the

their efforts have been In vain, leaves

"The two remaining legations, the

."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
