Must Meet In Some European Capital to Decide the Fate of China The Em peror Anxious to Return and Make all Proper Reparation -The Ministers at Pekin Antagonistic In their Poll tics Troops not to Winter in Pekin. Question ot Indemnity. Pekin, September 7, via Taku, Sep tember 13, and Shanghai, September 15. At a meeting of the foreign min isters here it has been decided that they had no power at present to treat with Prince Ching. The generals of the powers also think they cannot treat with the prince. The Russian legation, it is . understood, has been ordered to be withdrawn and this Is believed to indicate that the future of China must be decided by an interna tional commission in some foreign cap ital. Sir Robert Hart, the director of the Chinese imperial maritime customs, has informed the foreign generals that they must be prepared for future hos tilities, that the Chinese troops are concentrating and moving on the line of communication between Pekin and Tien Tsin and that he thought trouble might be looked for by November. General Chaffee believes Pekin has sufficient troops to hold out against any attack. Prince Ching informed Mr. Conger that the emperor is anxious to return to Pekin and make all proper prepara tions. The prince says the emperor and the entire court are in smalll vil lages sixty miles away. He will not endeavor to negotiate until the arrival of Li Hung Chang, who is expected here shortly. Lieutenant Benjamin B. Hyer, com manding sixty men of the Sixth cav- any, ,v:s ttvc;;;iy attacked near here by 500 Boxers. He put them to rout, his force killing twenty-five of them and capturing some rifles and treas ure. There were no American casual ties. AN INTERNATIONAL CONFER ENCE. Paris, September 15. The unsatis factory condition of the -cipher mes sages which reach the powers from their representatives . in China, es pecially at Pekin, has brought for ward pVomintntly the suggestion of an international conference at some Euro pean capital. A point which gives ad ditional weight to the plan is apprecia tion of the difficulty of reaching amicable results anmong the ministers at Pekin, many of whom have been antagonistic in their policies during the last few years. Could they ob tain direct and quick communication with the home governments the tan gles would be straightened out, but under the prestnt conditions this seems to be impossible. An argument ad vanced against the proposed confer ence is the difficulty of the powers being represented by men fu'ly con- servant with all the latest phases of the far east question. Some of the details which will be ureed in connec tion with the peace terms are discussed in diplomatic circles here. One point sm .r-iy urged on the part of France is i.. r?i7nanent continuance of the if : r'ona1 agreement now in force, prohibiting the axportation of arms to China. This is believed to be a strong measure of precaution against a. re occurrence of the determined assault on foreigners. A demand is also made for a reduction of the Chines? forces holding Taku and Woo Sung, which are the main coast defences respective ly of Pekin and Shanghai, in order to ke.. open a more secure route to the cities. The question of indemnity and how it will be paid is a serious problem. The indemnities are divided into three classes, thase payable to the states, to the societies and to individuals. The amount which the various ' states will demand will reach an enormous sum and the ability of China to meet them solely with cash payments causes con cern. Great Britain's indemnity, it Is believed here, will not be less than 60,-000,0-0 francs, while Russia's will not be f r below this. France's Indemnity will "be in the neighborhood of 30,000, 000 francs and. that of the United States, it is thought, will not "be so large a per cent., most of the Ameri can troops going . from the Philippine islands. In order to meet these great claims, it '.s pcvribTe that somevreforms In the internal administration in China may be necessary though their nature is not considered yet. It is said that Russia has not he.?.rd from M. De Giers, her. minister ?.t Pe kin, for some days and the messages of M. Pichon. the French minister at the Chinese capital, are also delayed, thus not permitting the government to gain any new knowledge in regard to the evacuation terms which are left to these offi-Ma!?. It is asserted here that France and Russia are acting In perfect harmony and that they will cer tainly remain in accord In their nego tiations ofr peace. TROOPS NOT TO WINTER IN PE- . KIN. Pekin, September S, via Shanghai, September 15. It is announced that owing to the Impossibility of getting the railroad through before winter sets In all the Russian forces will be with drawn and will make Tien Tsin their headquarters. This is causing specula tion as to Russia's policy. The occu pation of Pekin duiing the winter is practically Impossible for a large body of troops unless railroad connection can be established.

Scranton. Pa., September 13. Neaf- ly alll of the collieries of the Lackawan na region that were not closed down yesterday began operations this morn- ing, but before noon arrived they were one by one forced to suspend, until only a few of them were doing any thing at all and these few were so bad ly crippled by shortage of hands that under ordinary circumstances the op erators would have given up the at tempt to work them. The officers of the United Miners claim that no one except the exempted engineers, firemen, barn bosses and pump runners will respona to me whistles Monday morning. The op- erators, one and all, say tbey do not knnw what th mon will do. but are firmly convinced that a majority of their employes are opposed to striking ana tnat tne general snuxung ox in reckless breaker and driver bova turn- ed out and prevented the anti-strike miners from working.

General Superintendent Loomis, . of the Delaware, Lackawanna and W em Company, is looked upon as the head of the superintendents' organiza tion. Today ho said: "The position of the companies is thoroughly defined and there will be no deviation. We have -onferred and while we think the men have been ill advised we are dedided that none of their demands shall be met. A line of action has been determined on. This will , begin on Monday morning with, the blowing of the breaker gongs calling the men to their work. Those who respond will be given places and protected in their work. If necessary these men will be placed in one of the central mines so as to be employed to gether, and their work and safety bet ter assured. A supply of stock coal is now in sight and can meet the imme diate demands of upwards of - two weeks After that there must come a coal famine, or the In-rush of-bitumi nous coal that will wipe out a large part of the anthracite market unless the men now deluded by false hopes return to work. British Successors in Transvaal. London, September 15. Lord Rob erts reports to the war office, under date of Machadodorp, September 14th, as follows: "French occupied Barbertoit yester day with the cavalry which he took across the mountains. He met slight opposition, the enemy being complete ly surprised. Twenty-three oiicers and fifty-nine men who were prisoners, were released, and forty-three locomo tives and other rolling stock were cap tured. The former will relieve us of great difficulty, as we had to put up with a few rickety engines. "French reports that he has suffi cient supplies for three weeks' for his force and for a week for his horses. One hundred Boers with Mauser rifles ande a quantity of ammunition were captured. There are large quantities of cattle and sheer in "the country, which is good news. "French Intercepted large convoyr, showing that Barberton was used as a depot of supplies for the Boers In the south and southeast. The bulk of French's force is still thirty-five miles behind the cavalry, owing to the diffi culty of getting the wagons over the pass leading to Barberton."

After describing conditions Mr. Haw ley says: "The destruction is so great we have been compelled to make our conditions known and ask for the sympathy and aid of mankind. If you deem expedient no greater service could be done than to use such agencies as you may have for universal Infor mation concerning our unhapnv fate." DISINFECTANTS BADLY NEEDED A dispatch was received from Gen eral McKibbin stating that there are plenty of doctors in Galveston, but disinfectants are badly needed. THE EXODUS FROM GALVESTON. Galveston. Texas, September 15. The exodus from Ga!v33tor. grows in numbers as the facilities for getting away from the stricken cit ar? in creased. Boats left here today mere frequently than on any day since the storm, some proceeding !ir-ct to Houston via Buffalo bayou and others making connection at Texts City with the Great Northern rail- ! road tran. Among those who depart- J ed today were General McKibben and Lieutenants Ferguson and Perrv.who were sent hither by the United States government when the news of the hor ror was given to the world. General McKibben will communicate with wai department on his arrival in Houston and thence proceed to San Antonio to transact official Lusines which is re quiring his attentiDn. Before leaving helwas solicited by the authorities to return, and expects to do so within the next four or five days. The news which was printed here this morning in the shape of a per sonal telegram from Vice President Huntington, of the Southern Pacific, that that road is hot to abandon Gal veston, has creaieJ intense satisfac tion and has materially accelerated the movernen; for the speedy recon struction of th city. Mr. Hunting con s telegram was to A H. Belo, of the Galveston and Dallas News and read: "I see it reported that we are to abandon our work at Galveston. Nothing is further from our thoughts. We expect to resume work, there as soon as we can. You can assure the people to that effect." Dr. W. H. Blount, state health offi cer, today printed a statement show ing that no apprehensions are justified that sickness will result from the overflow Just experienced. He shows that in 1S67 in the midst of the wide spread epidemic of yellow fever, a severe storm occurred at Galveston In the early days of October, result ing in a deposit over a greater portion of the city of slimy mud. Not only did no sickness result, but the cyclonic disturbance cut short the yellow fever epidemic, and but few cases of. fever occurred thereafter. In 1ST and 1SS6 when there were severe storms and no overflow, no increase In sickness oc curred. CLEARING AWAY THE DEBRIS Several thousand men are at work clearing away the debris on the beach.
