WASHINGTON. Auk. 10. In the light of
the latest dlspntchcs from Minister Con

through Minister Wu today, the ntlltudo
of tho administration 1h that thoro 1h but
nnc thlnj; to be dono In the present cir
cumstance, namely, to press .on to tho ro
llef of tho besieged garrison at l'ckln.
This wan mado known after extended com
munications between Washington and tho
president nt Canton. The Conner mos-
fnge waa accepted as showing conclusive
Justification for tho Imtieratlvo demand
of tho United States sent to tho Chinese
government on Vednenday night. Insist
lrtK that tho Imperial troops co-operntn
with the International forces In tho rescuo
of tho ministers, nnd until this condition,
3 well as tho cessation of tho bombard
ment Is fully conceded by China, there Is
no other course open but to press steadily
onwnrd In the mission of relief.
Tho Confer dispatch was received be
foro daylight at tho Chinese legation, and
hr soon as tho olllelal day opened. Mln
ister Wu presented It to Acting Secretary
Adco hs the State department. It was
In tho American cipher nnd was found
to bo an Identical note with that of tho
other ministers at Pekln (that of tho
French minister, M. l'lnchon. already hav
Ing appeared), with the additional fact
that seven members of tho American guard
had been killed nnd fifteen wounded.

n Iron gray muslncho contrasts with a

being unablo to talk freely about his cam

'I am busy making preparations for my

Various reports have been circulated as
to tho dlscaso from which tho lord chlet

The fact of his Illness was not generally

havo access to our cipher. As to tho terms
of tho message, thoy nro bcllovcd to mnko
plain that this government will not advlso,
much less direct, that Mr. Conger leave

ister has ndvlsed Washington that this
would mean certain dcatb.

Moreover, tho reply doubtless lets tho
minister know that thcro Is an unaccount
nblo error in tho statement of the Chlneso
government, as convoyed to him through
tho tsung 11 yamon, thnt tho genornl gov
ernments had urged rcpoutcdly thnt tho
ministers bo sent out of Pekln under suit
able escort. This clause, contained in Min
ister Congor's Inst dispatch, clearly shows
that the Chlneso government 1b lending mm
to bellevo that It Is the wish of Washington
that ho leave under a Chlneso escort,
whereas tho United States has never enter
tained for a moment tho Idea of having tho
minister set out on a dangerous pllgrlmngo
from Pekln to the coast under Chlneso pro
tection. Thoro Is no probability that tho atten
tion of tho Chlneso government will bo
directed to Its apparent doubln dealing, as
Indicated by tho Conger dispatch. This
government has transmitted to tho othor
powers Interested the noto to tho Chl
neso government entrusted to Mlnlstor Wu
on the night of August S. It has assu
rance from tho other powers that thoy
havo not advised tholr representatives to
accept Chlneso escort from Pekln. H was
positively Btnted at tho close of the day
that no further representations have been
mado to the Chinese government since the
Adeo noto of August 8 and thnt none will
lio mado until tho Chlneso government ban
given somo Indication of the attitude It
will assume In complying with or denying
tho demnnds of tho United States.

Whllo tho State department Is continu
ing to dispatch messages to Minister Con
ger on tho askurance of the Chinese gov
ernment thnt communication Is uninter
rupted, It Is doing so with comparatively
email hopo of their delivery.
This assertion was borne out tonight
when Socrctary Hoot said that there was
no 'onvlnelng evidence In possession of this
eovirnment that any of our dispatches
bad really reached Minister Conger. This
Indicated that tho minister had not given
n direct and satisfactory answer to nny
of tho queries that havo been addressed
to him by tho Department of State. ,
No additional dispatches were received
today bearing on tho military situation,
either from General Chaffeo or Admiral
