fit. Petersburg, July 19.—A dispatch
from Chefoo says:
l'riuce Tuan lias mobilized 950,000 men,
divided into different corps. The north
ern corps has been ordered to expel for
eigners from Amur. Tlie Peking army
is divided into four corps, the first of
which is to operate against Mukden and
occupy tlie road between Peking and
filiuii liai Kuan, the second is to concen
trate at Tientsin and tlie tiiird at Peking,
whence a column numbering 40,000 will
be sent to Wei liai Wei and Tientsin,
while the fourth corps will concentrate at
Nankin. There are now 23,000 Japanese
troops in China.
Tlie Chinese fleet is in tlie China sea
and Hostilities are expected. A dispatch
from Nankin announces that Prince Tuan
lias ordered a great military movement
ou iug to the appearance of Japanese in
China. Tlie viceroy of Nankin has in
formed the foreign consuls there that he
can not be answerable fur events in Choa
fiin, Ning Po and Cbu Chau. The for
eigners are fleeing to Shanghai. Tlie po
sition is alarming, fiixteeu foreigners
have arrived at Nankin from Ning Po,
where the houses of the foreigners have
been burned and missionaries horribly
The rebellion has taken hold of south
ern China. The foreigners at Chu Hu
and In Chau have been attacked and are
fleeing panic-stricken.
In Ho Kan Province.
Paris, July 19.—The French consul at
llankow telegraphs under date of July
13 that the viceroy admits that he is
doubtful of bis ability to arrest the re
bellion in Ho Nan. The dispatch adds
that a caravan of English and American
engineers and missionaries from Chen fii
u as attacked near fiiang Yiang. A num
ber were wounded, but it was hoped the
caravan would shortly reach Hankow.
Tlie consul at Shanghai telegraphs un
der date of July 9 that the governor of
Tclie Kiang, on the vigorous demand of
the consul, had taken energetic measures
to repress disorders. A second telegram,
dated July 13, announces troubles in the
province of Ho Nan. Missionaries had
beeil attacked in tlie provinces of Tche
Kiang and Manchuria and numbers of
missionaries were imperiled.
Prince Tuan has issued un edict to flx
a definite date for a general rising.
What the date is,can not be ascertained;
it is doubtless an early one, for Prince
Tuan is stated to have ordered all dis
I lu tch in view of the arrival of more for
eign troops. A large body of Chinese to
night is reported to be moving from Hu
l'eh in the direction of Shanghai,
situation here grows more threatening
every day. The city is still without any
means of defense, and all the forts are
being held by Chinese.
On tlie Curran Frontier.
Washington, July 19.—Minister Allen
at Seoul, Corea, telegraphs the state de
partment that Boxers and Chinese are in
force within a few miles of the Corean
frontier. The natives of Pin Yan, tlie
most northern province of Corea, are
mucli alarmed and are fleeing. Tlie for
eigners remain in safety. The govern
ment is very anxious.

Prescott, Arisona, Burned.
Prescott, Arizona, July 10.—The most
disastrous fire in the history of the town
started in a row of buildings kuown as
tlie Scope! block on Montezuma street.
Every building on tlie west side of the
plaza as far north as Gurley street, in
cluding tlie Burke hotel, is destroyed. The
fire is spreading, and there is no telling
where it will stop. The principal busi
ness houses so far destroyed are those of
Sam D. Hill, D. Levy and the Ed block.
The Courier office is destroyed and the
Jouin.il Miner office is in danger. Firemen
are powerless, as there is no water. Over
a dozen stores were blown up, without
etl'ect. It now looks as if the entire north
end of town would go. The loss at pres
ent is not less than $500,000 to $700,000.
Prescott, Ariz., July 16.—A scene of
the greatest desolution and a feeling of
deepest gloom pervade tlie town,
that remains of tlie principal business
portion of the town is tottering walls
and piles of charred and burning debris.
The tire which started at 10:45 o'clock
Saturday night was not under control un
til 3 o'clock Sunday morning, when the
fire fighters went a considerable distance
in advance of the flames and blew up the
buildings on the south side of Goodwin
street, preventing fire from crossing that
street. The most conservative estimates of
tlie fotkl losses are front $1,000,000 to $1,
500,000. The turned district 'embraces
five blocks, in which were located the prin
cipal mercantile houses, both telegraph
offices, four hotels and every saloon and
every restaurant except one in the town,
besides scores of private residences.
To add to the prevailing gloom a high
wind has prevailed all day, sending
smoke, dust and burning embers in every
direction, requiring the greatest vigilance
to prevent another outbreak of the
flames. On ing to the chaotic condition
existing today it is impossible to obtain
an accurate account of the losses or in
dividual insurance. From interviews wilh
insurance agents, the total insurance
does not exceed $250,000.

Tientsin, July 13, via Chefoo, July 16,
and Shanghai, July 17.—At 2 o'clock this
afternoon 7000 of the allied troops were
attempting to storm the wall of the city.
The attack began at daylight. Its suc
cess is doubful. The Chinese on the walls
are estimated conservatively at 20,000.
They are pouring a teriilic hail of artil

Washington, July 17.—It is stated at
the war department that no such person
as Captain vVilcox, wno was reported

officials here think it might be Major Wal

Conflrined by Remey.
Washington, July 17.—The navy de
partment this morning received otlicial con
firmation from Admiral Remey of the re
verse of tlie allied forces at Tientsin on tlie
morning of the 13th. Tlie dispatch is dat
ed Chefoo, July 1(J, and says:
"It is reported that the allied forces at
tacked tlie native city on tlie morning of
tlie 13th, the Russians on tlie right, with
the Ninth infantry and marines on the
left. The losses of the allied forces were
large: Russians, 100, including artillery
colonel; Americans, over 30; British, over
40; Japan, 58, including colonels; and
French, 25.
Colonel Liscum Killed.
"Colonel Liscum of the Nintli infantry
was killed, also Captain Davis of the ma
rine corps. Captain Lemley and Lieuten
ants Butler and Leonard were wounded.
"At 7 o'clock in the evening the allied
attach, on the native city was repulsed
with great loss. Returns are yet incom
plete and tlie details not confirmed.
More Than One Hundred Killed.
London, July 17.—The Evening News
prints a dispatch dated at Shanghai to
day giving a detailed account of the at
tack of tlie allied forces on the native
city of Tientsin, as reported in the dis
patch to the Associated Press, dated Tien
tsin, July 13, via Chefoo, July 15, and
Shanghai, July 16.
According to the Evening News dispatch
the*allies were repulsed and compelled to
retreat with a loss of more than 100 killed,
the British losing 40 and the Japanese 60.
Tlie Americans and Russians, it is added,
also suffered heavily. Among the Ameri
cans killed were Colonel French of the
Twenty-fifth infantry and Colonel Liscum
of tlie Ninth infantry. A Russian colonel
of artillery was also killed.
The dispatch adds that the Chinese
fought with great desperation and their
marksmanship was accurate and deadly.
Mlmtak« About Colonel French.
Washington, July 17.—The report that
Colonel French, Twenty-fifth infantry, was
killed at Tientsin is not understood at
tlie war department. Officials state posi
tively that Colonel French is not in China,
There is but one Colonel French in the ser
vice, and he commands tlie Twenty-second
infantry, two battulions of which are in
the Philippines and the third one in this
country. On June 30 Colonel French was
in New York on sick leave.
Ko Newa From Peking.
Washington, July 17.—Consul General
Goodnow cabled to the state department,
from Shanghai there is nothing more to
report since his cablegram of the 13th
inst. That dispatch reported the attack on
the legations at Peking as about to begin.
Mr. Goodnow's statement is a direct con
tradiction of the Shanghai story that all
foreign consuls were informed Saturday
that .the legations had fallen and the min
isters were -killed.
Cabinet In Council.
Washington, July 17.—Secretary Hay
called a cabinet council this morning to
consider tlie Chinese question. Few cab
inet officers are in the city and the only
attendants were Secretarys Hay, Root,
Long and Gage. Tlie cabinet council last
ed for some time and tlie Chinese situation
was thoroughly discussed. In all probabil
ity tiie president will come home within
tiie next two or three days to remain a day
or two. There is reason to believe that
8000 or 10,000 troops will be gotten to
gether as rapidly as possible and hurried
to China. Some of these probably will be
takeh from Cuba. If the situation requires
more men congress
together to provide for them.

city and its defenses.
Tlie total loss of the allies in tlie en
gagement of Thursday, Friday and Sat
uruay were about 800 killed or wounded,
Tlie casualties were greatest among the
Russians and Japanese.
The guns of the ullies did immense dam
age to the native city, causing many large
conflagrations, and linally silenced the ma
jority of the enemy's guns simultaneous
ly. Then 1500 Russians, assisted by small
parties of Germans and French, assaulted
and captured eight guns that were in po
sition on the railway embankment and the
fort, the magazine of which the French
subsequently blew up. A body of Ameri
can, British, Japanese and Austrian troops
then made a sortie and attacked the west
arsenal, which the Chinese hud reoccupied.
After four hours of the hardest lighting
yet experienced the Chinese fled.
W hen tlie arsenal had been evacuated
by the Chinese the Americans, French 'and
Japanese and Welsh fusileers advanced
toward tlie native city and joined with
the other attacking forces. The Japanese
infantry and mounted battery advanced to

Americans and French. Despite valiant
attacks, the allies were only able to bold

The casualties sustained by the allies
were exceedingly heavy, especially those
to Americans, French and Japanese.
