tho Russian government has received
a dispatch asserting that, after

LONDON, Aug. 28, 3:15 a. m.?1The
Illuminations projected at Shanghai In
celebration of Pekln's relief have been
abandoned lest they should cause a native
outbreak. "Evidence has been received
here," says the Shanghai correspondent
of the Standard, "going to
show that General Yung Lu was the
real author of the antl-forelgn outbreak;
the empress dowager. Prince
Tuan and the others all having been
persuaded by him to take an extreme
attitude, while he stood aside and

American refugee missionaries In
Amoy, according to the Hong Kong
correspondent of the Dally Mall are
anxious to return to the Interior; but
the United States consul has forbidden
them to do so and urges Them .to go to
the Philippines or to return to America.
Shanghai advices to the. Dally
News says that consular opinion there
looks upon Japanese action in the landing
of troops at Amoy, despite the
protests of the consuls as similar to
that of Russia at New Chwang, the
whole Indicating a tendency to a par
tition or tnc empire.
Want No Spirit of Revenge.
""Russian Journals agree," says the
Moscow correspondent of the Standard,
"that It is Impossible to deal with China*
In the spirit of revenge, as suggested
by Emperor William, that methods
less drastic can better accomplish the
ends of Russia In Manchuria. The
question would be satisfactorily settled
to Russian minds by the seizure of the
northern provinces."
A St. Petersburg special quoted Emperor
William, when wiring in answer
to the announcement that a Russian
regiment had been named after him as
follows:
"Express my'good wishes to-day with
all the greater Joy since our Russian
and German commanders after a long
time are fighting together again, shoulder
to shoulder. According to an old and
sacred tradition, victory will not be
wanting."BRYAN

Castaways Rescued, One
of Tliem a Count.
NOME, August 17.?(Via Seattle,
Wash., August 27.)?Late mining developments
have been of a satisfactory nature.
No doubt now' remains of the
genuineness of the Kougrock strike;
Harris and Quartz creeks, in that coyntry,
are rich, and the former shows
from 25 cents to $1 50 to the pan. Oregon
creek and its tributaries, Hungry
creek, in the Granite district, have developed
unexpected richness, and a
very wide expanse of pay gravel. Coming
nearer home, attention is Just now
centering on Hastlng's creek, eight
miles east of Nome. There prospectors
have uncovered a gravel bed fifteen feet
in thickness, and of unknown breadth,
extending from the gulch way up Into
the hills. Where ever prospectors have
gone u nas ueen lourni to, carry goiu in
paying quantities. Prospectors believe
that In It they have found the "ancient
channel." Already several pumping
plants have been set up In the creek,
and It Is believed that the next season
Hastings creek will bo the scene of the
most extensive operations In tho country.
The steamer Alboan left yesterday
fOr an Island In tho lower waters of
the Arctic ocean to rescue three castaways,
one of whom Is Count Du Pare,
of Paris. The men had attempted to
reach Siberia by a small schooner, but
the little craft was driven far off her
course, and Into the Arctic.

the fact that it mentions the arrival or

BOXER ATTACKS
Upon the Allies' Lines of Communication
Moro Formidable Than Was
Expected?German Troops Pouring
In?Our Troops Can Not Now Be
Withdrawn.
WASHINGTON. August 27.?After
several day's Intermission In Chinese
advices, the government to-day received
two dispatches, which presumably
brings lis advices up to this date.
There are Indications that the principal
delays in the lines of communication
are on account of their being between
Tien Tsln, a fact explained by the newspaper
advlccs that small bands of Boxers
are operating on the line of the
common Pekln campaign force. The
fact that more than a week was covered
by the last Interruption gives rise
to the belief here that these attacks
upon the lines of communication by
Boxers are more ^formidable than was
supposed to be possible, after the heavy
losses Inflicted upon them by the international
forccs In Its advance.
The important dispatch to thl? day
was one from Minister Conger, relative
to the military situation In'Pekln. Unfortunately,
It lacked a date, the minister
presumably not having received
the department's Instructions to Include
the date In the body of his dispatches.
The state department concluding from
Internal ovldenco that Mr. Conger's
message was certainly later than any
official emanation from the Chlnesa
capital, the message was allowed publicity
for what It wan worth. Mr. Conger's
reference to the arrival of 2,003
fresh German troops caused some surprise,
no one, apparently, having closoly
watched the movements of the German
contingent, which Is now arriving with
fairly regular frequency In China, and
which consequently may be expected
soon to equal In numerical strength the
military contingents of any of the Europe!)
nations there represented.
Appearanco of Tsunp LI Yamen.
A significant statement In Minister
Conger's dispatch Is that respecting tho
expected appearanco In Pekln of some
of the members of tho Tsung LI Yamen.
A natural construction to be given to
this statement Is that these ministers
wish to undertake to represent the Chinese
government formally Jn negotiations
with the powers. It having been
found Impossible up to this momont,
according fo Mr. Conger's statement, to
meet any representative of thiF Chinese
government In Pekln who was competent
to open negotiations, It has been
Inferred that If these ministers actually
appear with proper credentials, one of
the problems connected with the present
difficult situation In China will bo
solved. With some responsibly person
or perrons to deal with, it may be possible
for the United States to comu to
an agreement ns to a settlement of the
trouble. JCver slncn the fall of Pekln
the principal difficulty confronting the
government has been to arrange for tho
next movement In Its programme. It
could not withdraw its troops, even If
Il[ were bo disposed, without arranging
for Indemnification of the heavy cost It
has been put to In the campaign. Also,
it must make arrangements with somo
responsible authority for the future
protection of American Interests In China,
as our business Interest cannot be
withdrawn along with the army of occupationi
Therefore, aa conveying a
faint hope that in tho persons of these
members of the Tsung Li Yamen there
may be found some authorized representative
of tho Chinese government
those point*, the message of Mr. Conger
was very welcome to the authorities
hero.
Dispatching of tho Castino.
Another statement In Mr. Conger's
dispatch relative to tho decision of the
generals not to enter the Imperial patace,
appears to explain the movements
of the American troops, which the press
dispatches were unable to clear up, m
gates, after capturing all but one of
thfml Another event of the day of
somo Interest was the order dispatching
thfl Castlne from Shanghai to Amoy,
distant about 400 miles. The little gun
boat should make the run In about two
days, under favorablo conditions. Her
force Is small, but sufficient to serve tho
moral purposes, If there be need for
such. It appears that she Is ordered
to Amoy quite as much on account of
representations from well informed
business circles, as from any official
advices.
The first direct word from Goneral
Chaffee since August 18, came to-day'ln
the form of a cablegram dated to-day
at Taku, reporting the action of the
Sixth cavalry with the enemy near
Tlon Tsin.
This cable odds nothing to the Information
of the department In retention
to military movements, as It la
simply General Chaffee's belated official
report of an engagement previously
reported by Admiral ltemey In a cabfo
dated Taku. August 20.

I CHICAGO, August 27.?The thlrtyJ
fourth annual cncumpmcnt of the G.
A. R., which was formally opened last
night by thy monster meeting in tlis
Coliseum, was in full blast to-day, and
in all respects it promises to be the
greatest and most successful encampment
the army has ever held. All la-st
night and all of to-day train after train,
loaded down with veterans and their
friends, rolled into the various depots
In the city, and by evening it tvas estimated
by railroad officials that fully
45,000 old soldiers had arrived, and that
300,000 other excursionists had come
with them. It is expected that there
will be 30,000 additional arrivals by tomorrow
morning. The veterans have
come from all parts of the republic, and
every northern state has sent a strong
contingent. The New York delegation
is one of the largest the empire state
has ever sent to an annual encampment.
Fully 1,000 of them had come in
by this morning, and every train from
the east brings more of them. New
Jersey, Pennsylvania ana mo jncw
England states are all represented by*
large numbers of old soldiers. Iowa,
Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin have sent
larger numbers than In any encampment
of recent years.
Great Day for Old Soldiers.
General J. Warren Keller, of Ohio,
and General Edward S. Bragg, of Wisconsin,
both said this afternoon that
they looked to see to-morrow the greatest
number of old soldiers that had
marched at one time before the Stars,
and Stripes since the memorable" review
In Washington, at the close of the
war. ?
The first day of the encampment was
one of Idual beauty; In marked contrast
to the hot and humid weeks that have
preceded It since the first of August.
There was in the early portions of the
day a fresh breeze off. Lake Michigan,
tempering the heat of the sun, which
shone brightly but not too warmly, to

The right of th*? line on the openingnlay
was given to the men who sailed the
seas during the Civil wax, the cheering
to-day was nil for them and all ths
honors were theirs. The army will
come to Its own to-morrow.
Heroes a Small Band.
The forces of river and sea of the
Civil war are a small band now. Out
of 132,000 men enlisted in the navy in
the early days of tbe war, less than
1,000 marched to-day, and it Is agreed
by the old sailors that the number was
greater In the march to-day than it will
ever be In any parade to come.
Besides those who fought atloat from
'CI to '65 came the younger generation
who helped to smash Montejo's fleet In
Manila, way, anu maae glorious History
when Cervera sailed out of Santiago
harbor to overwhelming: defeat. Willi
the veterans of the navy marched a
band of men whose lot during the war
comprised the worst of hardships, but
none the les3 was aa full of glory as
the career of the bravest lighters of
them nil. These were the members of
the association of ex-prisoners of war,
who received an enthusiastic greeting
as they marched along.
Passed in Review.
The parade, which was but a prelude
to the great march of the Grand
Army to-morrow, started at 11 o'clock
from the corner of Michigan avenue
and Randolph street, and after a short
march throughout the down town
streets turned into Michigan avenue at
Jackson boulevard, and passed on
south, under the beautiful army arch
at Van Buren street, through tho court
of honor and out under the naval arch
at Michigan avenue and Hubbard
court, where it passed in review before
Commander Shaw, of the Q. A- R.,.Acting
Governor Warder, representing
Governor Tanner, Mayor Harrison,
Commander .Tones, of tho Sons of Veterans,
and Commander Atwell, of tho
cx-prteonere of war.
Tho late afternoon feature of tho
dny'a celebration, the naval parado on
Lake Michigan, proved somewhat of a
disappointment, weather conditions Interfering
sadly with tho arrangements.
