ALLIES HALF WAY TO PEKIN (Copyrighted Associated Press.) Tien Tsin, Aug. 6th, via Shanghai, Aug. 12 The army advanced twelve miles today. Two reliable couriers, who left Pekin, Aug. 1st, arrived to day at Tien Tsin. They say the em press dowager fed the foreigners for n few days. The former viceroy of Shan Tung, who is bitterly anti-foreign arrived with new troops, according to these couriers, planted two batteries on the wall near the legations. The enemy began shelling and opened fierce rifle fire which was kept up for two days. The head of the missionary board, with a party, while trying to get provisions was killed. The army took Yan Tsun today. They suffered heav ily. American loss Is small. Berlin, Aug. 13 (Chinese bulletin) ine (jatnonc paper, "liermanla, says it learns that ten out of fifty mission aries at Vicarate, southwest of Pel Chi Ll and 3,000 converts have been mur dered. London, Aug. 13 As allies were to rest three days at Vang Tsun, it is sup posed further advance began Aug. 10th, but no word has come through from Yang Tsun since Aug. 8th on which date the Japanese commander, in a message to Tokio, said 20,000 Chinese were confronting the allies. Japan ese losses at Peitsang Aug. 6th, were 300 killed and wounded. The Chinese left 200 dead on the field. The object of the Chinese diplomacy as it appeurf from the great efforts being made in London and at the continental capi tals, is to indtioe the powers to sus pend the march of the relief expedi tion; but it has been without success! in the case of any government. The explanation why some Pekin cipher messages are dated Tsl Nan is made by the Great Northern telegraph com pany which points out it has regulai courier service between Pekin and Tsl Nan and wires working from the lat ter place. New York, Aug. 13 A special to the "Evening World today dated Che- foo, Aug. 9th, via Shanghai, says: "A terrible mistake occurred at the taking of Yang Tsun. The Russian ar tillery opened fire on the American troops. Before the mistake was dis covered many American soldiers had been killed or wounded by Russian shells. The Fourteenth took part in .the attack on Chinese trenches.,' As the Chinese fled the regiment entered ;and occupied one of the Chinese posi tions. The Russian battery some dis tant off, did not notice the movement, .and opened fire on the position and .planted shells among American troops. 'The Russians were quickly notified and 4ceaeed fire. Washington, Aug. 13 The depart ':mnt of state today made public the reyy of the United States to Minister Wu's communication notifying the de partment of appointment of Earl Li Hung Chang envoy plenipotentiary to negotiate with the powers. This re ply was sent Minister Wu Sunday af ternoon as follows; "The government of the United States learned with sat isfaction the appointment of Earl Li Hung Chang as envoy plenipotentiary to conduct the negotiations with the desire to continue friendly relations so long existing between the two coun tries." It Is evident there can be no general negotiations between China and the powers so long as the minie- ' ter of the powers and person under their protection remain In their pres ent position of restraint and danger, ;nd the powers cannot cease in their efforts for the delivery of those repre- . -sentaiives to which they are- oonstrain ; ed by the highest . considerations of -national honor, except under an ar rangement adequate to accomplish a peaceable delivery. We are ready to ' enter into an agreement between the powers and the Chinese government for the cessation of hostile demonstra tions on the condition a sufficient body of forces composing the felief expedi tion shall be permitted to enter Pe kin unmolested and escort foreign min isters and residents back to Tien Tsin, this movement being provided and se cured by guch arrangements and dis poeitions of troops as shall be con sidered satisfactory by the generals commanding the forces composing the relief expedition." This reply was telegraphed last night to the representatives of the United States for communication to governments and powers co-operatir.3 In the relM movements.
