CHINESE WILL MAKE DESPERATE STAND AT CITY OF TUNG CHOW Battle at Pietsang Indicates That There is Heavy Work Before the Allies. OUR POSITION UNCHANGED Government Will Not Consent to the Removal of the Foreigners From Pe king Until There Is Free Communi •cation With the Ministers—Officials Fear Chinese Treachery. Washington, Aug. 6. —Interest in the Chinese situation was intensified this morning by the receipt of two dispatches from two naval officers at Che Foo re peating unofficial, but apparently relia ble reports of active and extensive hos tilities between the allied forces and the Chinese on the road between Tien Tsin and Peking. The dispatches indicate unmistakably that the relief column has started in earnest and that it is meeting with great opposition. Although neither of the naval dispatches mention the presence of American troops in the re ported engagement, it is generally as sumed at the war department that at least a part of General Chaffee’s small army was on hand and took an active and aggressive part in the affair. According to the information in the possession of the war department the town of Pietsang is at the head of tide water on the Pei Ho river, about 11 or 12 miles by road between Tien Tsin and Poking. It is a village of mud houses of considerable size, but not walled. The river at this point is not navigable by anything larger than a good sized steam launch, and it is thought that the troops had reached there in small boats and naval launches. The country all along the river between Peking and Tien Tsin is a low, alluvial plain, almost impassable for wheeled vehicles in the wet season, and under quite a high state of cultivation. It presents no natural defensive features and the war depart ment knows no strategic reason why the Chinese should have made a stand there rather than at any of the other dozen villages east of the walled town of Yung Chow, where is stored an im mense amount of provision on which the city of Peking would have to depend in case of siege. Desperate Engagement Expected. From the fact that the engagement lasted seven and a half hours it is be lieved at the department that either the Chinese must have been heavily in trenched, or that there was an immense horde of them to stubbornly contest tho advance of 1(5,000 troops. It is figured by military experts that a loss of 1,200 killed and wounded on the part of the allies probably means a loss of from three to six times as many by the Chi nese. It is possible that a blow of this magnitude may break the resistance of the Chinese to the advance of the for eign column; but, on the other hand, it is possible that there may be a large number of places on the road that have been intrenched with a view of falling back and contesting the foreign advance so as to delay as long as possible the ar rival of the foreigners at Peking. Un less the opposition suddenly breaks down tho experts look for a desperate engagement when the troops reach the wailed city of Tung Chow, which is said to be even more favorably located for purposes of defense than was Tien Tsin. The position of the United States, dip lomatically, remains unchanged. This government will not consent to the removal of the ministers and for eigners from Peking until there is free communication by the powers with their ministers. Nor will this government consent to communicate in plain lan guage alone, but insists that cipher mes sages must pass freely between Minister Cohger and our state department. It is emphatically stated that unless such messages aye exchanged the United States cannot know beyond question that the messages were not garbled and both the government and the ministers misled. There is no doubt but that the minis ters are safe in Peking and they will re main there, refusing the Chinese offer to escort them to Tien Tsin. It is said that if all the international forces in the vicinity of Taku can be landed and supplies brought up there is a sufficient force to overcome any army which the Chinese may bring forward to prevent the march on Peking. It is also believed at the war depart ment that the information received through the navy department of a bat tle is correct. Miles Applies For Service In China. Washington, Aug. G.—lt is learned on excellent authority that General Nel son A. Miles has recently applied for service in China. His application has not been granted. War department offi cials say that General Chaffee was sent to China to command the American troops, and to relieve him at this time would be a reflection upon his conduct of affairs. bayboro'mobdTsperses. Order Has I3eeu Restored—Election Will Be Contested. Raleigh, Aug. o.—Tho naval militia division from Newborne, ordered by Governor Russell to hasten to Bayboro to stop rioting, did not arrive until noon. All the rioters had gone and the town was quiet. The rioters left the court house after midnight, having decided to let the county returning board complete tho canvass of votes anti decide the re sult and then to let the courts decide which party is entitled to the offices. The Democrats are badly at odds in Pamlico county, and thia is what caused the trouble. Some of the best men in the county are on each side. A great lawsuit was what started the trouble. Augusta Carpenters Strike. Augusta, Ga., Aug. o.—About 50car penters employed in t|je erection of J. B. White’s new 5-story store and hotel have announced a strike, and did not go to work today. They demand one hour a day less work and an increase in pay. Death of Former Senator Prior. Athens, Ala., Aug. 6. —Luke Prior, former United States senator and repre sentative to congress, is dead, aged 81 years. ALABAMA STATE ELECTION. Democratic Leaders Claim a Majority In Every County. Birmingham, Ala., Aug. 6. Ala bama’s state election was held today for the purpose of choosing a governor, state officers, members of the legislature and county officers. A light vote was polled, except in about 15 or 18 counties, where the contest for control of county and legislative offices has been warm be tween the Democrats and Populists and Republicans. These are counties which have heretofore gone against the Democ racy. In nearly all the assuredly Dem ocratic counties the opposition- to the Democratic ticket was weak, the legis lative tickets of the Democrats being unopposed. There were four state tickets in the field—the Democratic headed by Col onel W. J. Samford of Opelika, the Re publican headed by Judge John A. Steele of Tuscumbia, the Populist led by Dr. G. B. Crowe of Birmingham and the Prohibitionists, with Rev. H. L. Hargett of Gate City for governor. There was no fusion this year between the Populists and Republicans, each having its own state ticket. It is gen erally agreed that the Democrats are more thoroughly united than they have been for a decade, and the party mana gers claim that their state ticket has carried every county and that at least 120 Democrats will be elected out of 133 members of the legislature. They also expect to reclaim many county offices. The anti-Dcmocrats are fighting for county and legislative offices, rather than for state offices. The chief issue of the campaign has been the matter of a new constitution to restrict suffrage. The Democrats fa vor submitting the question of calling a constitutional convention to the people, while the Republicans and Populists oppose it. AN IMPORTANT DECISION. Supreme Court Nullifies an Act of the State Legislature. Columbia, S. C., Aug. o.—The state supreme court has handed down a deci sion which nullifies the act which was intenod to domesticate foreign corpora tions doing business in this state, re quiring corporations to take out charters under the laws of this state. The deci sion is farreaching and means that when sued for amounts exceeding $2,000 ac tion must be instituted through the United States circuit court. This holds whether the corporation has been re chartered in this state or not. In order to render its decision the su preme court was compelled to reverse its decision in the case of Mathias versus the Southern railway, but stated in do ing so it was bound by the decisions of the United States supreme court. Doz ens of cases pending in state courts are knocked out. During the last spring state courts have given heavy verdicts jlgainst interstate roads in numerous cases. ARRESTED BY THE MILITIA. Circus Men Taken Into Custody For Riotous Conduct. Duluth, Aug. 6.—One hundred mili tia men left here last night for Cloquet, Minn., to effect the capture of the circus crowd who have been terrorizing the small towns in northern Minnesota. The militiamen arrived there during the night and when the circus train pulled in, quietly surrounded it and waited for daylight. The circus people knew nothing of their presence until today. Twelve of circus men wanted by the sheriffs of Cass and Hubbard counties for assault were picked out and taken to Cass Lake. The men made no resistance. Doc Baker of Texas, who is believed to be the leader of the gang, was not found. The 12 men taken into custody will have their trial at Cass Lake. INTEROCEAN CANAL GRANT. President Zelaya Desires to Deal Di rectly With the United States. Managua, Nicaragua, Aug. 6.—Pres ident Zelaya desires to deal directly with the United States for the construction of the interocean canal.

Searching For the Robbers. Denver, Aug. 6.—Detectives and a posse under command of the sheriff are scouring the country in the neighbor hood of Hugo, in search of the two men who robbed a number of passengers on the Kansas City branch of the Union Pacific railroad and killed J. Fay of Anshhin, who resisted them. A reward of SI,OOO each for the capture of the men, dead or alive, has been offered. Ensley Steel Mill Starts Up. Birmingham, Ala., Aug. 6.—The steel mill of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad company at Ensley will be started up this week. Three of this fur naces were put in operation today. The blooming mill will be started up Wednes day. The capacity of the steel mill is 1,000 tons a day. The mill was closed down the early part of July for repairs. Chilian Consul Murdered. Valparaiso, Chili, Aug. 6.—Great alarm is felt in all circles here because of the rumors apparently based upon trustworthy information that the Chilian consul at Oruro, Bolivia, has been mur dered. It is said the government has received a dispatch confirming the ru <nors, but because of their serious nature has not given them out. Death From a Snake’s Bite. Abbeville, Ga., Aug. 6.

ALLIES LOST 1,200 IN AN ENGAGEMENT AT PIETSANG SATURDAY Internationals, Outnumbered 3 to 1, Drive the Chinese From Their Positions. ATTACKED AT DAYLIGHT An Unofficial Dispatch States That 16,000 Allies Assaulted the Enemy’s Position—While the Report Lacks Confirmation a Battle at That Point Was Not Unexpected. Washington, Aug. 6.—The follow ing cablgram has been received at the navy department, dated at Che Foo: “The British warship Fame reports an engagement at Peitsang Saturday morning, three to one. Allies lost, killed and wounded, 1,200, chiefly Russians and Japanese. Chinese retreating.” Admiral Remey cables as follows: “The report is believed to be reliable that about 16,000 allies engaged the Chinese at Pietsang at daylight Satur day.” Pietsang is the first railroad station, 6 miles north of Tien Tsin, enroute to Peking. The authority who signed the first dispatch is in charge of troops at Che Foo. The war department says that there is no reason to doubt that an en gagement has taken place. While no official information has been received it is said that such an engagement was not unexpected. RUSSIANS DEFEAT CHINESE. Battle Lasted Two Days—Enemy Lost 400 Men Killed. St. Petersburg, Aug. 6.—A dispatch received at the war office from General Grodekoff, dated Khabosovsask, Aug. 4, says two squadrons reconnoitering near Teche engaged 1,000 Chinese with two guns and 250 cavalry. After a stubborn fight the Russians were reinforced by another squadron with two guns and de feated the Chinese, killing 200. The Russian loss was eight men killed and eight wounded. This dispatch adds that the battle at Aguan was continued Aug. 3, the Cos sacks losing six men killed and 25 wounded and driving back the Chinese, killing 200 and capturing two guns and two flags. An inscription on one of the flags reads: “The people of the large fist.” Aguan, when the dispatch was sent, was burning. TO MAKE A RECONNOISANCE. Allies Send a Force of 4,000 Men Against General Maa. Tien Tsin, Aug. 6. —The allies are to make a reconnoisance at once, starting with 4,000 men against General Maa’s army. The Fourteenth United States infan try has arrived. Preparations for the advance on Peking are being pursued. A large number of native boats have been commandered. All the lighters have been seized, which will stop busi ness with Tien Tsin. Boxers are raiding villages south of Tien Tsin. One thousand Mohamme dans have been massacred. It is reported that the Chinese have made overtures to ransom the Peking diplomats and close the war. The emperor and dowager empress are believed to be still in Peking. Their flight or death would produce a great change. The Chinese, now silent or normally loyal, will become progressive when they have nothing more to fear. The fate of those who have heretofore dared to utter pro-foreign sentiments, terrifies even the semi-enlightened offi cials. Chang Yen, son of a former Chinese minister to Washington, is still exiled. Li Hung Chang has not put in an ap pearance at Tien Tsin. His former res idence, where he received General Grant and other notables, is occupied by the Cossacks. Large quantities of bar silver were taken from the native city. The Amer icans and Japanese are said to have about 1,300,000 ounces each of the gov ernment treasure. Tho Russians have placed their flag upon tho salt piles. LI WILL NOT GO~TO PEKING. Anti-Foreign Party Again In Control and He Asks Sick Leave. London, Aug. 6.—The anti-foreign party again has the upper hand at Pe king. According to reports emerging from Li Hung Chang’s lodgings at Shanghai, his baggage is packi< prepara tory to his departure for Peking, but, it is added, he has applied to the throne for 20 days’ sick leave. Li Hung Chang claims that his report to the Yang Tse viceroys and Taotai Shen will be de nounced by Li Ping Hong because they are friendly to the foreigners. A news p* ncy dispatch from Shang hai says it rumored that the powerful viceroy, Yuan Shi Kai, governor of Shan Tun, who disapproved of Prince Tuan, has been killed. Correspondents at Tien Tsin are un able to get anything fresh, though a dispatch from Shanghai, dated Aug. 6, avers that the allies are making slow progress toward Peking on account of the differences of opinion among the generals. The American, British and Japanese commanders favor one plan, the dispatch affirms, and the Russians, French and German favor anotner. Prince Tuan, it is added, seeks to in spire his army by orders urging that every foot of the road from Tien Tsin to Peking be disputed. All the Chinese troops have evidently been placed in command and their supplies are going to Peking from the southern provinces. It is deemed quite probable by military men in London that the Chinese will make a fierce fight at Peking on a much greater scale than during the defense ox Tien Tsin. Waters Held For Wife Murder. Statesboro, Ga., Aug. 6.—Tom Wa ters, on trial for poisoning his wife, has been bound over to the superior court. His mother, Hester Waters, was dis charged. TINDALL~HELD FOR MURDER. Boy Is Charged With Shooting His Sis ter and Poisoning His Father. Gordon, Ga., Aug. 6.—While John I. Tindall, with his wife, was visiting neighbors, his daughter Ruby, aged 10 years, was shot and instantly killed by her oldest brother, aged 17. The shoot ing at tho time was supposed to have beeu accidental, but in tho light of sub sequent events is now thought by many to have been intentional. The shooting occurred July 28. Sat urday morning Tindall, who had been slightly indisposed for several days, took a dose of medicine and was seized with violent convulsions, resulting in death within 15 minutes from tho first attack. An investigation revealed the fact that Tindall came to his death by poisoning, the drug having been mixed in the med icine ho was taking. James Tindall, his son, has been ar rested, charged with the crime. BULLET THROUGH HIS BRAIN First Officer of the Deutschland, Dls« graced, Ends His Life. New York, Aug. 6.—E. Thiele, the first of the Hamburg-American liner Deutschland, blew out his brains during the voyage of the big ocean greyhound that was finished when the steamer reached her pier in Hoboken today. The second day out it was Thiele’s turn to watch on the bridge. Tho air made him drowsy and he fell asleep at his post. Captain Albers camo upon him and ordered him to take off his coav and the badge of office and sent him to his cabin. The young sailor went down in dis grace. Five minutes later a shot was heard and when the door was forced he was found on the floor with a bullet in his brain. Thiele was formerly a resident of Montgomery, Ala. WOMAN IS BRUTALLY SLAIN, Young Lady Waylaid and Beaten to Death In Kentucky. Brandenburg, Ky., Aug. 6.—Miss Annie Brunting, aged 17, was brutally murdered last night. She left her home here for church and went unattended on horseback. Not returning at tho usual time her father began a search for her. She was found on the road side beaten almost to a pulp, with her throat cut. The first intimation of trouble was when her horse was found pawing at the front door of her father’s home. Jesse Durham, a relative, was ar rested by the sheriff and in view of tho excitement of the people he was taken to Louisville for safe keeping. FRUIT GROWERSBENEFITED. They Get an important Concession In the Treaty With Germany. Washington, Aug. 6.

The latter annuls the pro visions that the dried and evaporated fruits imported from the United States be inspected on account of the San Jose scale and agrees that such fruits shall be admitted without other charges than the regular customs duty. This is regarded as a practical admis sion by the German government that the original restrictions placed upon Ameri can fruits were really nothing more than deliberate discrimination. Situation Becomes More Serious. Paris Aug. 6.—The French consul at Chung King telegraphs that tho situ ation is becoming more serious on the upper Yank Tse Kiang.
