Their hands clasp in brotherly blessing
A feast in the trenches where no more

The battle is o'er—
They are brothers once more.

PARIS, July 21.—1s it anarchy or ww!
If this question were answered to the
entire satisfaction of the powers, there
might be some light on the future situa
tion in China, but with the &bsolute~lack
of trustworthy information all are acting
in the dark. No one is willing to hazard
a. guess as to what the outcome is to be.
The powers recognize, in the extension
of the present anti-foreign movement,
the birth of a spirit of patriotism which
they never met with before in their deal
ings with the Chinese people. la the
Chino-Japanese war Central and South
ern China held aloof.
"Western civilization," said an official
of the foreign office, to a representative
of the Associated Press, "is apparently
face to face with a gigantic problem.
This time the powers have to deal not
merely with the defenders of the Manehu
dynasty, but, to £ill appearances, with
an uprising of the mass of Chinese peo
ple, who imagine that the European
powers for the pa.st two years have bten
aiming, not to overthrow the dynasty,
but to seize China. This seems to have,
given rise to a spirit of patriotism. We
fear that North China will no/ alone b«
involved in the anti-foreign outburst,
but that the Yang Tse Kiang valley will
soon be caught in ih«? vertex. There
have been indications recently which In
spire us with this apprehension. The
movement of drilled forces northward
is one of them. The departure of LI

Hung Chang from Canton northward ip,
in our minds, a very grave feature of the
•situation. Muc-h will depend upon the
direction in which his Influence Is exer
cised. His reticence, and the absence of
a prerci.se indication of his position can
not be regarded as reassuring.
"A significant fact in the present situ
ation is that during the Chino-Japanese
war, when the Japanese were inflicting
defeat upon the Chinese, the viceroy's
central and southern province.*, In which
were a great number of drille-l troops,
were instructed by O Hung Chang not to
send these soldiers north, but at the pres
ent moment these troops are under orders
to march toward Pekin."
The French government still enter
tains hopes of the safety of the lega
tions In Pekin In view of today's advices
to the Associated Press. It also declines
to believe that any discord will break
out among the powers, especially between
Russia and Japan. Russia has her hands
full with affairs in Manchuria, where It
is pointed out she has been taken as
much by surprise as have been the other
powers. The invasion of Russian terri
tr.ry>-by the Chinese astounded the Rus
sian government, which little suspected
that ihc Chinese were in such strength,
or so well armed in the territory con
tiguous to Russia.
That no political break will occur in
the accord of the powers is the general
opinion in diplomatic spheres.
One ambassador explained that during
a time of storm one could find wild ani
mals which ordinarily are the bitterest
of enemies and willing to fight to the
death, lying peacefully together in a
single place of safety. This, he thought,
fitted the present casa Jn China, and so
long jls the storm lasted the concord
among the powers would be a&sured.
After that it was difficult to see the out

of a break. The streets * during the
week were deserted at midday, and re
mained so throughout the afternoon by
all except business men. Many cases of
sunstroke were treated daily. The ef

forms. Every man or woman carried a
little Japanese fan, known here under
the picturesque name of "The little
north wind." Ladies wore big sun bon
nets, and men were attired in the most
airy clothing. The boulevard cafes were
crowded up to late at night, their fre
quenters imbibing iced drinks.
The weather had a very unfavorable
influence on the attendance at the expo
sition. Parisians kept away entirely, and
only the provincials, here for a short
stay, braved the suns rays and contin
uously did the exposition. The big drop
in the number of visitors brought about
an instantaneous slump in the price of
tickets, which sold at 75 centimes when
the shop opened. They gradually drop
ped to 15 centimes, at which price they
had been staggering for the past few
weeks. Yesterday, however, the haunt
ers had difficulty in securing buyers at
25 centimes, and some sold tickets at 20
centimes, euual to four cents in Ameri
This slump is a serious thing for the
Paris banks, which, on the opening of
the exposition, took over a large propor

50 centimes, half their Issue price. The
exhibition reaches the half-way post on
