Withdrawal of Troops From Pe king at rrrsent Would Be Disastrous. Kativps Told the Foreign Army Is Defeated and Would Beliei e It. General Protest Against Such Action by the Foreigners at Shanghai. SHANGHAI, Sept. 5.—DISPATCHES an nouncing that the American govern mem refuse* to agree to the with drawal of the troops from Peking before satisfaction for the outrages upon and the losses of its citizens are given, have been received hero and are applauded by the entire foreign colony in Shang hai. Any other policy, according to the businessmen and missionaries with whom the Associated Press representa tive ha.b talked, would be a vital blow to the prestige of the foreigners and would weaken their status in China. The local English papers fiercely de nounce tbe proposals to evacuate Pe king and say that the Chinese would interpret evacuation as defeat. The masses of Chinamen now bt-lieve that the Chinese arms are victorious. The Chinese papers printed in Shang hai contain long, circumstantial ac counts of alleged Chinese victories at Peking, Tion Tsin and Tung Chao. and the shops in the native quarter display for sale lurid photographs of the Celes tial army driving the European soldiers into the sen at Taku and cutting them to pieces at Tien Tsin. They also show pictures of the foreign admirals being torturr-d in the presence of the viceroys. Vice Admiral Seymour is represented, with his arms pinioned, kowtowing be fore the throne. The Chinese accept these reports and pictures as eorrec&y representing the situation and consider the reports of the English press as "merely foreign lies." GENERAL ASTONISHMENT. Action of the t'uittM! States and Ktistla Surprise* Great Ilritaiu. NEW YOKK, Sept. 5.—A dispatch to The Tribune from London says: Explanations of the American circu lar note, which have been cabled here from Washington, have caused general astonishment. Whatever the state de partment may have meant to convey, Downing street understood the United States government to be supporting Russia's proposal for immediate retire ment from Peking. The British fortigu office has received two disagreeable surprises in the last week. It was justly annoyed at finding that Russia, after all her declarations of affections for the international concert, hud calmly given orders for the retirement of the Russian troops and legation without even waiting to hear what the other powers thought of the move. Connted ou America as an Ally. Eut the attitude of the United States was almost equally disconcerting. The British government thought it was en titled to rely on American support in the endeavor to settle theChine.se ques tion effectually. The British official view is that this retirement from Peking is only advantageous for Russia which kills three birds with one stone. In the first place she has her troops free for use where she wants them just now, nameiy in Manchuria second, she limirsthe expenditure of money which in the present condition of her finances is highly desirable third, she prevents the possible removal of the Chinese seat of government from Pe king, wh'-re, for reasons of her own, she particularly desires that it should remain. VIEWS OF THE MINISTERS. Uelieved Tliejr Will Condemn the Fro. potal to Withdraw From I eking. LONDON, Sept. 5.—The absence of Dews regarding the actual situation of affairs at Peking continues as complete as the lack of authentic information re garding the ultimate attitude of the powers toward the proposals now be fore the concert. Shanghai reports that an imperial edict issued at Tai-Yuan-Fu appointed Li Hung Chang, Yung Lu, Hsu Tung (tutor of the heir apparent and Prince Ching commissioners to negotiate peace. Four German warships arrived at Woo Sung Sept. 3. The unmistakeable condemnation of the proposal to immediately withdraw from Peking, which is voiced 1'r^n all the foreign colonies in the far East, is taken in some quarters as a Fonrait of the Opinion whk'h may be expected from the min isters when their views are obtainable. As already stated the Russian jiropo fcals are capable of modification and it is thought in well informed circles that Lord Salisbury is striving to conform them more closely to the terms first formulated by tho government at Washington. According to a special dispatch from St. Petersburg, dealing with the ques tion of Manchuria, the Russian officials repudiate any intention to permanently occupy or annex Manchuria. Tho dis patch adds that Rus.iia will claim no territorial concessions, provided the *ther powers retrain from so doing, and express the hope that the question of indemnities can be settled by Gild 00 operation of the allied powers. ftantiago I'rider Water.

THE HAGI F, Sept. 5.—The ratifica tions of tin.- agreements and treaties re sulting from the peace conference were formally placed in the foreign office archives during the day.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Sept. 5.—The en tire Democratic ticket, headed by Hon. Jeff Davis of Pope county for governor, was elected in Arkansas. Early re turns indicate that the vote will be lighter than was expected. The lie publican candidate for governor, H. L. Remrnel, made u good showing and his increased vote over two years ago will probably reduce the usually large Dem ocratic majority. There was no oppo sition to the Democratic ticket for any office except the governorship. CABLES HER FATHER. Baroness von Ketteler to Meet Relative* at Yokohama. DKTKOIT, Sept. President H. Ii.
