It shows, moreover, that the punishment of Tnan Is more severe than heretofore reported, as he Is re moved from olflre, a fact stated in the previous dispatches. The clan court Is directs to decide upon a "severe pan ally" In addition to the loss of office, salary and servant. The state department received a dis patch from Minister Conger announc ing the departure of the Russian legi tlon from Pefcln. lleyond this, there wns little additional Information bear ing upon (be Chinese situation. It wt Plate olttclally that tha reported Trench note to the powers regarding ths opening of uegullallona and the liermnnent disarmament of the Chinese had Hot been tecelvoil. If it proves true that auch note has been sent, It In said that the proposition for dtearm nment can hardly bo considered wlUi favor by this government owing to the commercial stand and the recognled noverelgtj authority or China sh a na tion. Tims far thore has been no protoat (m the rt of this govornmsnt against Ihe apiMrtntment of Yung Iai us one of the Chinese peace commlaalonera.
