GRAVEST CRISIS IS REMOVED BY RELIEF OF THEMINISTERS There Still Remain Many Mo mentous Questions to Be Determined. TO PRESERVE THE EMPIRE United States Adheres to the Policy Forecasted at the Beginning of the Trouble—Will Endeavor to Maintain the Integrity of the Chinese Territo rial and Administrative Identity. Washington, Aug. 17.—Out of the gloom of the recent acute crisis came tho cheering information from many sources today, unofficial, but so circum stantial and positive as to be generally credited in official circles, that the allied armies had reached Peking and that the legationers had been relieved. This in formation name from London. Shang hai and Berlin advices were eagerly scanned by the people of Washington. They were unable to furnish the slightest confirmation, neither tho state, war or navy departments nor the Chi nese minister having any advices that this happy consummation had been reached. At the state department a cipher dis patch was received from Consul Fow ler at a point quite near Peking, but unfortunately it conveyed no word of the arrival at Peking nor the resore of the legationers, referring to points already pretty well known. A dispatch from Admiral Remey dated yesterday gave information as to the situation in Peking Aug. 10. The Chinese minister was elated when wlrd reached him of the press dis patches announcing that the legationers had been relieved. Not a word had come to him confirming the reports and this led him to examine the unofficial advices from Shanghai and elsewhere with considerable care. He pointed out that Shanghai was some 800 miles from Peking and it was surprising that in formation did not come from Tien Tsin or Taku, only about 100 miles from Peking and the base of the allied forces. Moreover, the appeal of Li Hung Chang for an armistice was dated Aug. 15, and showed that Earl Li did not know at that time of the alleged retirement of the imperial party from Peking. He, however, was disposed to credit the re ports even in the absence of official in formation. He reckoned that since the allied forces were at Tung Chow there had been ample time to'cover the short distance between that place and Peking, so that the reports tallied with his own calculation on what was likely to have occurred. Gravest Crisis Removed. If it proves true that the legationers are relieved the gravest crisis is removed, but there remains many momentous questions to be determined. It appears to be accepted that some of the powers will keep their military forces in China at least until all questions growing out of tho crisis arc settled. This is ex pected to involve questions, not only of money indemnity, but of territorial ex tension on the part of some of the Euro pean parties to the controversy. It is not behoved that the United States will be a party to any such territorial con troversy, as the declaration of Secretary Hay, made at the beginning of the trouble, forecasted tho purpose of this government to seek to preserve the Chi nese territorial and administrative iden tity. He said in this note of July 3: “It is, of course, too early to forecast the means of attaining this last result (prevent a spread of disorder), but the policy of the government of the United States is to seek a solution which may bring about permanent safety and peace to China, preserve Chinese territorial and administrative entity, protect all rights of friendly powers by treaty and international law and safeguards for tho world, the principal of equal and impar tial trade with all parts of the Chinese empire.” There have been many changes in the situation since that declaration was made, and yet it seems to clearly indi cate that if territorial extension is one of the sequels of the crisis, tho United States will not be a party to it. Chi nese officials are apprehensive that a large period of diplomatic exchange may follow tho crisis, covering six months or a year, during which Germany, France and some of tho other powers will keep their armies on Chinese soil to enforce extreme demands of money and territo rial indemnity. With China’s present impotent condition there appears to be no issue out of this long slru ;gle but her eventually yielding to tho various demands. Portable Postoflices. San Francisco, Aug. 17.—H. W- Robinson, superintendent of tho Ameri can postal service, to bo established in China, who, with his assistant, G. M.

HE ELIMINATES POTITICS He Pleads With the Jury to Bring In a Verdict Based on the Evidence. Makes a Strong Plea For the Convic tion of the Accused. Georgetown, Ky., Aug. 17.—Tho largest crowd that has yet been in at tendance at the Powers trial thronged the courthouse this morning, this being tho closing day of the argument. The crowd was not entirely local, but con tained many visitors from central Ken tucky counties. The proceedings were delayed some time on account of the absence of tho defendant who wad brought in later in charge of a deputy. Colonel T. O. Campbell of Cincinnati began addressing the jury at 9:30 o’clock. In his preliminary remarks Colonel Campbell took occasion to regret tho heated state of political feeling in Ken tucky, and appealed to the jury to not think of politics, but to weigh the evi dence and return a verdict based upon that. Colonel Campbell took up the evi dence of various witnesses and discussed its bearing upon the case. Ho declared that the murder of Goebel had for its object tho permanent installation of an organization of political buccaneers in the mountains whoso strongest ally was a great corporation to which Goebel had boon a thorn in tho flesh. Culton, Gol den and Noakes were good enough to take charge of the mountain army and manage Powers’ political affairs in Jan uary, but it suits tho purposes of the de fense now to seek to impeach their ve racity Emd character, since they had weakened and confessed the details of the conspiracy. Powers’ own admissions on tho stand corroborating everything Culton had said was sufficient to hang him, the speaker declared. Campbell continued: “All shrewd criminals, of which class Caleb Powers is one, first arrange for an alibi. The mountain army was brought to Frankfort Jan. 25 and, thinking it would perform its murderous mission, Powers goes to bod at the house of John Davis, a conspirator, but the foul deed is not committed and Powers leaves his bed and waits for another day. On Jan. 30, the second appointed day, he delves deep into tho work of establishing an advance alibi. Ho goes into exhaustive details of locking his office, though he never locked it before, and leaving fol Louisville on pretense of bringing more mon to Frankfort. This time tho plan is better laid and as soon as the assas sin’s bullet is fired from tho secretary of state’s office Powers raises his hand and exclaims: ‘I am innocent, because I was in Louisville when the murder oc curred.’ ” Youtzey Is Improving. Georgetown, Ky., Aug. 17.—Henry Youtzey, who has been threatened with typhoid fever, is reported to be improved this morning and his attorneys say he will bo ready for trial Monday. QEN. WHEELER GRATIFIED. He Hears the News of the Entry of the Allies Into Peking. Chicago, Aug. 17.—General Joseph Wheeler, commander of the department of the lakes, expressed great pleasure to day on hearing that the allied force! had reached Peking. He said that it has been his opinion since the commencement of the Chinese troubles that the officers and the mem bers of the present Chinese dynasty have been seeking to delay the entry of tho allied forces into Peking in order to give the Chinese authorities an opportu nity to move tho capital together with all the archives and sacred writings to another point, which probably will be the capital of the Chinese empire.
