Force at the the Chinese READY TO RAZE THEM Th« Russian Government Indicted its Willingness to Receive M- Oe Ciers Outside City's Wali. London, Aug. 16.—"The allies are re ]>orted to have reached Pekin Monday," says the Shanghai correspondent of the 1 Daily Express, wiring yesterday. "Chi 1 nese official news is without detail." A Paris message reveals this, hut the statement, especially as it emanated from Shanghai, must lie accepted with consid erable reserve. London papers, basing 'heir remarks upon Washington dis patches, which, with the exception of the foregoing from Shanghai, form the latest I news regarding the advance, are divided in opinion. Some lielieve that the allies must have already reached Pekin and I others prefer to believe the relief will not , he accomplished until the end of the week. j Telegraphing from Yang-thsun August 16, a Daily News correspondent says: "Sir Alfred Gatetlee hopes to keep the enemy running and to follow him right into Pe kin." Ngan Ping was occupied without firing a shot, according to a dispatch to the Daily Exptess from that place, dated August it. "It is believed," the message adds, I "that Generals Tung Fu Siang, Ma and Ching are entrenched with 4<\cxx> strong at 1 iing-chau. The allies may avoid Tung-chau; pursuing the route northwest of Chang-kia-wHii." Tung-chau appears to he about 12 miles from Pekin. A dispatch to the same paper from [ Shanghai, dated yesterday, says that the officials profess to be willing to hand over the foreign ministers, their families and servants, but w ill not permit the depart ure of native Christians. "The Russian government," says this telegram, "has notified Li Hung Chang j of its willingness to receive M. de Giers \ outside the walls of Pekin, thus averting j the entrance of the Russian forces This 1 independent action is calculated to em j harass the allies seriously. Japan de ! mauds that General Yung Lu shall meet j the allies outside the city walls and de liver the ministers and all the native Christians." The Chinese minister in London is quoted as saving: "The powers must not press too hard on Pekin. If you de feat the Chinese it will not lie possible to control the soldiers. They may turn and rend the legations. I do not lielieve the legation food supplies will be stopped as long as the powers refraiti from attacking °------r--------------------' Pekin and negotiate for the surrender of i the ministers." Anticipates a Long; Fight. Chicago, Aug 17.—Captain McCalla of the cruiser Newark, who wes in com niand of the American marines in Ad miral Seymour's successful expedition to the relief of Pekin, believes that the Chinese situation is more serious and fraught with more dangers to the United states ami allies than anyone imagined liefere the capture of the Takti forts. Writing to Mrs. Edward Roby in this city from Yokahotna, whither lie had been invalided by the three wounds which he received during the ill-starred Seymour advance on July 26, Captain MeCaHa says: "Certainty no foreigner in our column of 2000 officers and men believed the Chi nese would do so well, and no one except the agents who bad lieeu selling arms munitions of war to China since the ------- ----- ---- j close of the Japanese war had any con- ■ ception to vast amount of money which the Pekin government had expended in preparation for another war. And w hile the Chinese could not or would not stand against us 'in the open,' they inflicted severe punishment 011 us while we were driving them out of the villages and from liehiud mud walls " Captain McCalla in concluding, said that so far as he can judge, the interna tional problem now to tie solved in China is most interesting and very difficult. He also says that the United States may lie called upon, on account of its large trade interests in China, to adopt and declare an international policy which can onlv he enforced hy a large navy.
