RUMOR OF DEFEAT OF BOXEES
Japanese Said to Have Slaughtered

Tuan — What Powers
LONDON, Aug. 30., 3:15 a, m.— Amid
the growing difficulties of the Chinese
Imbroglio, Mr. Broderick's emphatic de
claration ~v the Holcombe last evening
proves that the British government does
not see any cause to depart from the
line of policy originally decided upon,
namely, to take no responsibility for the
administration of China. Mr. Broderick
said he hoped it would not be supposed
that the government was pusillanimous in
this respect. Its object was to main
tain British interests. It was qui'.e
ready to take its share of the white
man's burden, but could not admit that
the nature of that burden should be dic
tated to it by the yellow man.
"Here," the Morning Post observes, "is
■where the difficulty of selecting a policy
comes in. We cannot decamp and lenve
the powers to settle the matter between
Sir Chih Chen Lofengluh, the Chlneso
minister in London, asserts that he is in
constant communication with Li Hung
Chang, who is still In Shanghai.
Dispatches received this morning bring
no later Pekin news. A Shanghai tele
gram says that Li Hung Chang has sent
a memorial begging the empress dowager
to appoint Prince Ching, Gen. Yun Lv
and the Yang Tse viceroys as Joint peace
makers with himself.
It is rumored at Shanghai that the
Japanese gained a great victory over the
Boxers and Chinese troops between Peit
eang and Ho Wun Si last Thursday. The
Btory says that 1,500 Chinese were killed,
including Prince Tuan, and all the Chi
nese wren driven back into Chi Li.
The reform party, under Kang Yu Wei,
is said tj be actively preparing for re
bellion. Gen. Creagh, in the presence
of Vice Admiral Seymour, reviewed 3,000
troops of all nationalities at Shanghai
Wednesday. It is reported from l\ixi\
kow that twenty-five reformers have
been executed, j.heir heads being exposed.
The Taku correspondent of the Daily
Telegraph, wiring Aug. 26, says that me
country around Taku and Pekin is
devastated with the result that the Box
ers are most unpopular and are being
attacked by the peasantry. The Boxers
■who were moving north from Shang
Tung are now returning hastily to their
ated dispatches and the stories of
refugees arriving at Che Poo continue
to describe the terrible conditions in Pe
kin. One of the worst features is the
shocking depredation of the cemetery
outside the west wall. The details are
too revolting to be discovered. Hundreds
of bodies of Chinase are found in tha
streets of IVkin, supposed to be those of
traitors to the cause of the Boxers.
3The Shanghai correspondent of tha
lines says that a native official tele
gram from Pao Ting Flng announces
the arrival at Ti Yuen Fen of the court
last Thursday. Communication between
Pekln and Ti(_n Tsin is interrupted, prob
ably because bands of Boxers make the
road unsafe for couriers. The country
north of Yang Tuan.is said to be flooded.
A German firm is negotiating with Chi
Chang Tang, the Wu Chang viceroy, to
lend him 1,C00,000 tael- on the security
of certain viceregal undertakings.
A dispatch says that the Russians at
Hal Cheng are awaiting reinforcements,
whose advance is delayed by the Impas
sable condition of the road to Leao Yang
and Mukden. Meanwhile the native pop
ulation of the Jistrict is being treated
with the utmost severity. Eye witness's
report an indiscriminate slaughter of
non-combattants and the reduction of ths
c untry in the vicinity of Port Arthur'
to a case of utter desolation.
The Hong Kong correspondent of the
Daily Mail telegraphs that he under
etands that Gen. Gasalee, the British
commander In China, countermanded his
orders summoning more troops to the
north and probably the British troops
will go to Amuy.

at Vladivostock have interdicted the sale
of canned* goods in that city, but those

It is reported that two Russian coasting
steamers on the river service between
Khabarovsk and Blagovetchensk were
_iunk, a Russian church in that locality
being destroyed by the Boxers. It is
reported from the same source that 15,000 j
Chinese troops are at present encamped
on the frontier.
It is also stated that two British men
of war visited Ningpo on Aug. 11 and
that the commanding officer Informed
the authorities that a British officer
would land at each of the ports in the
South for the purpose of concerting with
the local officials for measures for tho
protection of foreigners.

were dispatched to Taku on Aug 14.
HONG KONG, Aug. 29.-Tw 0 hundred
bandits raided the Tartar city of Can

BERLIN, Aug. 29.-With reference to
the future administration _of China a
hi-h official of the German foreign of

Associated Press today: "It is premature
to talk of the form of government that
will be set up in China, but the probabili
ties point to a condominium of some
kind, inasmuch as the powers will not

u e creden «als of Li Hung Chan?
ft, h * h * d I™Z1 ™Z talk « with Minister
7 U aild the German charge, and the sub
stance of these conversations he laid b"
fore the cabinet. It [ a understood the
cabinet today completed preparation of
a plan for clearing away much of the
uncertainty that now exists as to thn
future in China, and outlined its vi«ws <«
writing. The fact that the military 'sit
uation is admitted to be of secondary
importance confirms the view, though no
cabinet officer would vouchsafe Inform
ation on this point, that what is sought
is an agreement among the powers for
terminating the indefinite status of af
fairs In China. It is believed that the
point has been reached where It is prop
er that there should be a clear expression
on the part of the principal powers, in
order that the United States may know
how far it may go consistently In the
execution of the common programme.
Much of the objects had in view by the
president when he made answer to the
Chinese government's appeal, and begafi"
the campaign upon Pekin, have been
achieved. Two others remain to be se
cured, namely, the safeguarding of Amer
ican interests for the future, and some
proper guarantee for Indemnification for
the expenses of recent operations B mi
losses of American citizens. Some plan
by which the objects can be attained
by the United States in common with
similar objects by the other powers en
gaged in China is thought feasible. In
cidental to this main purpose, several
phases of the problem are attracting
special attention. Thus the sufficiency
of Li Hung Chang's credentials as a
peace envoy, or rather of the ability of
the emperor of China to accredit any
one thus, is a matter of International
The attitude of Germany was the sub
ject of much Official discussion during
the day, and considerable new light, was
thrown upon it. Early in the day the
German charge d'affaires. Baron Speck
yon Sternberg, had a long conference
with Acting Secretary Adee. It is un
derstood that any question which may
have arisen as to the future "course of
Germany Is met by a reference to an
official note by Count yon Buelow, Ger
man minister of foreign affairs, issued
on July 12, which fully denned Ger
many's purposes in China. This note of
the German chancellor followed within
ten days of Secretary Hay's note t.o the
powers on July 31, and is somewhat anal
ogous in setting forth Germany's inten
tions. Count yon Buelow's note said:
"Our aim is the restoration of security
for persons and property, freedom of
action for German subjects in China,
the rescue of the foreigners beleaguered
in Pekin, the re-establishment of secu
rity and regular conditions under a Prop
erly organized Chinese government, and
reparation and satisfaction for the out
rages committed. We desire no parii'.icn
cf China and seek no special advantage.
The Imperial government is imbued with
the conviction that the maintenance of
the agreement between the powers is
a primary condition for the restoration
of peace and order in China."
"The powers were in complete accord
up to the time of the taking o f Pekin.
But with that accomplished, the more
important question arose-as to the future
course of the .powers in dealing with
China, and on that there is not as yet
any complete record. Thus far It seems
plain that the United States opposes the
dismemberment of China, or any move
towards territorial expansion there, and
in this position Russia and France seem
to agree. On the other hand, while there
is nothing definite md eating ibrritorlaJ
expansion, yet the exch«i.ij<es have led
to the belief that Germany. Great Britain
and probably Japan, are not averse to
h <•( arse which will brine: about terrltor-
ial divisions within the ompir&."

G. A. R., as an organization, strictly a
clay of business. For those members who
were not burdened with the responsibili
ties attending the position of a delegate
to the convention of the Grand Army It
was a day for anything and everything
but business. Prom morning to night the
convention labored at its work in Stude
baker hall, listening to numerous reports
from officers and committees, while the
vast majority of the old soldiers went to
the parks, took boat rides upon the lako
and those who had not seen bloo.i enough
in their younger days accepted an Invi
tation from the packers to visit the stock
yards, where they beheld more slaughter
than had taken place at the "bloody
angle" at Spottsylvanla and in the
"bloody lane" at Antletam combined.
The convention opened at 10:20 o'clock
and from the start business waa pushed
with energy. The opening session was
entirely of a social character and was
open to the public. The afternoon meet
ing was of an executive character.
Gen. Shaw announced the meeting
would be opened with prayer by Chaplain
Gianin. The audience rose and remained
standing during the invocation.
Mayor Harrison then came to the front
of the rostrum and formally welcomed
the soldiers to Chicago. His address was
received with applause.
Comamnder-in-Chief Shaw, of the
Grand Army, replied to Mayor Harrison
for the members of his organization, ex.
pressing the thanks of the army for the
hospitality shown them.
As Gen. Shaw resumed his seat, J. M.
Longenecker, commander of the depart
ment of Illinois, rose to greet the visiting
veterans In behalf of the soldiers of
Illinois. He made a happy little speech
which evoked much applause. Gen. Lou's
Wagner, who responded for the membe-s
of the army was no less felicitous in his
reply, expressing the gratitude of his
comrades to the men of Illinois This
closed the meeting of the morning, as

PENSION COMMITTEE'S REPORT.
When the convention met in the after,
noon the first thing taken up was the re.
port of the pension committee This
would contain, it was generally thought
some warm statements, but there were
none There was not in the report a
specific declaration or recommendation
upon any subject. The committee in the
outset went at length into the history oi
the work done by G. A. R. committees in
obtaining from the last congress the In.
creases in certain classes of pensions. It
then discussed the differences of opinion
existing between the pension office anS
those members of the G. A. R. who hold
the. opinion that the old soldiers have not
received sufficient consideration The re
port argued at length against the state
ments that have been made by the pen
sion office in reply to the original criti.

Army but offered no suggestions as to a
direct line of policy to be purtued Tha

An adjournment was then taken until
tomorrow morning:. It is said now that
the work of the encampment will be

should be a protracted debate over the
report of the pension committee, and
this is not considered probable. No op
position has been raised to Judge Ras

it is practically certain that he will be

One of the features of the encampment
which attracted much attention whs the
veterans' bicycle road race, in which
twenty- nine eld soldiers started. The
course was from Halstead street straight
west to Garfleld park, and once around
the park, a distance of seven miles.
The winner was J. Patterson, sixty-one

MILAN, Aug. 29.-The trial of Brescl,
the anarchist, who on July 29 shot and
killed King Humbert of Italy, at Monza,
while his majesty was returning from a
gymnastic exhibition, opened here today.
An immense crowd of people gathered
about the court from early morning, seek

only a few places were reserved for the
ticket-holding public. The hearing began
at 9 o'clock. Brescl sat In the dock, calm
and almost indifferent. His counsel Slg
Martelli, head of the Milan bar, and the
anarchist writer, made requests on vari
ous grounds, which were refused.
The public prosecutor made a speech,
during the course of which he eulogized
the virtues of King Humbert, and reca
pitulated the story of the assassination,
which, he contended, demonstrated that
Brescl was fully responsible for his acts,
and that the latter premeditated the
crime and had accomplices. After de
