day was largely given up to private
discussion. Although It wua stated
that no answer would le at once ready
to the German note, it appears that
the president after talking over the
nit nation with Attorney General
Grlggn, Acting Secretary Hill and As
Kistant Secretary A dee has arrived at
a conclusion as to the nature of the
reKMtnse that should le made. It is
nald that the note I to be gone over
carefully at a further meeting !etween
the president and hi adviser. It is
understood, however, that the answer
of thl government, as now framed. Is
in effect a diplomatic refusal to ac
cede to the German proiosal. The
German government apparently i
anxious for a spe-dy answer, a Ilaron
HternlM-rg paid several visit to the I

The conclusion reached from late dc

Germany and Great Britain stand

A Ii tlnite let"rminatioii.
Washington, Sept. 20. The first defi
nite determination to begin peace nego
tiation with China soe-ius to have
been renehetl by the French and lifls
fdan governments which have made
known their puriose to proce-cd with
negotiations with IA Hung Chang and
FrlniH Cliing as soon as feasible. As
France is ae-tlng with Bussia, this de
termlnatlou appears to remove any
lrespHt of a modification of the Bus-80-Franco
eleterminatum to withdraw
from Pe-kln. It also disposes of all
questions as to the e-rvdentlals ef I.l
Hung Chang ami plaets France in a
Itsition of iM'ing ready to proceed on
the credentials he has brought for
ward. If it Is the purpose of France
and Bussia to tegin peace negotiations
Xt would follow that at least some
of the great powers will not concur in
the German nete requiring the sur
ren1er of the chief Chinese ringleaders
as an inellsiensabh prerequisite to the
opening of peace negotiations. The
German note is leased on the theery
that no peace negotiations ran go on
until the Chinese malefactors are sur
rendered. On the other hanu, the
Frneo-Bussian attitutk contemplates
proceeding with the paeo negotiations
at the earliest feasible time, without
attaching any Indispensable e-ondition
as to the prior surieuder of the Clii
jvse offe'itders.
The Immediate Cause.
1 'Berlin, Spt. 2. It is understood
that the immediate cause for the is
suing by Germany f the circular note
to the powers reganling the Chinese
nettleme'nt was the fact that I.l Hung
Chang, during his ree"cnt intervhrw
with Ir. Mumm von Schwartzenstein.

tioned a numlHT of names ef aUegel
lilgh tnanelarians. hitherto wholly un

Fektn outrages and said that China
