Washington, Oct. 9.—The effort to
induce tile Chinese imjicri.il court to returu
to Pekin lias failed, after a week's
jiersisteut effort on the part of the powers.
News to that effect was brought to the
state department by the Chinese minister,
who received it via tit. Petersburg from
Viceroys i.iu-Kun-Yih and Chang-Chih
Tung, under date of October 4. Minister
Wu received the message last night. It
was as follows:
"The dejjarlure of their unjierial ma
jesties from Shan si (province) was due to
distressing conditions at Tai-Yuen-Fu.
There is a scarcity of food supplies in the
province of Shansi on account of the long
continued drouth, and tiie provincial cap
ital (Tai-yuen) is almost deserted, the
trades jieople having left on account of the
disturbances caused and continued for
months by the Boxer rebels, who iiad in
vaded that jirovince with the eucourage
ment of Governor Yu. Their majesties,
therefore, were obliged to jirocged to
Shan-si, where tclegra phic communica
liuii with Shanghai and otiier parts of the
einjiire is ujien, and rapid coniiiiunication
with their majesties may therefore be
rallied on; tiius court and official business
may be transacted more exjieditiously by
tlieir presence in Shan si rather than Tai
Yuen-Fu. The reasons for the temjiorary
jiostjioneiuent of their majesties' return tu
Pekin arc tlie presence of the ullied troops
1 here, of which fear is doubtless entertain
ed, besides tiic dread of the breaking out
af epidemic diseases, which usually follow
after great disturbances, destruction of
projierly and military operations. Jt is
noped the powers will be considerate in
their judgment in this matter."
Tlie imjHirtant feature of the message
is the confession that the court is re
strained by fear of the allied forces from
returning to lVkin. The movement takes
lhe emperor and empress dowager about
300 miles further away from Pekin,
though, according to the statements con
tained in the message, by reason of tlie
direct telegraphic coniiiiunication with
Shanghai the court practically will be
nearer for purposes of negotiations with
tlie outside world than it was at Tai
Minister Wu has been informed also
that Viceroy Yu of the province just va

because of his anti-foreign tendencies,
which is the first sieji toward his degrada
It is said there are no Boxers in the

recently surrounding it.
