PARIS HEARS OF OPPOSITION. foreigners are reported to HAVE A FORCE OF 40,000. Gen. Chaffee Was Delayed in Disem barking— A Dispatch on July 31 Said Advance Had Attain Been De layed—Chinese Slade Another At tack on Tien Tsin—Rnssians Re fined to Let Americans Put Tele phone Wires Along the Railroad. London, Aug. 6, 4 a. m.—The American and British forces began to advance on Pekin last Thursday, according to a dis patch, dated Aug. 2, from Tien Tsin to the Daily Express. "The main body of the allies,” contin ues the correspondent, "marched July 30. Gen. Chaffee was delayed by difficulties of disembarkation. Gen. Dorward, the British commander, had no such obsta cles. and his delay is inexplicable. "The other foreign troops are now half way to Eofa. The force includes 20,000 Japanese under Gen. Yamachuchi, and 30,000 Russians. The British force totals 0,000, and the other foreign troops 7,000. We are weak in artillery. "On Aug. 1, a strong force of Chinese from the native city, attacked Tien Tsin. By a series of brilliant charges, our troops drove the enemy from their positions. The native city is stilt defiant and the allies are unwilling to march troops through its streets, as this would mean an immense slaughter. When the Chi nese saw so large a body of troops marching westward, they apparently be lieved they would have an easy victory over those who were left.” The Disturbing Element. A message to the same paper from a correspondent in Pekin, dated July 22, says: “The women have borne all the horrors with marvelous fortitude and even with cheerfulness. The Chinese wanted peace when the arsenals at Tien Tsin were cap tured and the negotiations bade fair to be successful. Unfortunately Li Ping Heng and Kang Yu (?) arrived here at the critical moment and overthrew the peace party. "Food has been short, but not terribly so, though we have had to be very care ful.” A Shanghai dispatch dated Aug. 4 says: "The first overt attack upon foreigners occured this morning. Three Chinese, supposed to be soldiers tn disguise, tired at a well-known English resident, while he was lying asleep on the veranda of his house. He had a narrow escape. "From various sources come state ments that a large body of Boxers, some estimate them at 3,000, is gathering south of Tien Tsin and threatening communica tions.” Escort for Ministers. The Shanghai correspondent of the Daily Mail announces the reception of an imperial edict, dated Aug. 2. ordering Gen. Yung Lu to select high military and civil dignitaries, together with a sufficient number of picked troops, to escort the foreign ministers to Tien Tsin as soon as they decide to leave Pekin. By the terms of the edict Gen. Y'ung Lu will be held personally responsible for their safety, and he is given full authority to deal summarily with those opposing the peace ful passage of the escort. "By such acts,” concludes the edict,” do we show our good Intentions to people from afar and open our bosoms to them.” Y'okohama advices eay that Gen. Ter euchl has reported to the Japanese gov ernment that It Is not advisable to send more troops to China, declaring that the united force Is now ample to relieve the foreigners In Pekin. Chinese messages assert that in addi tion to causing the execution of high functionaries of pro-foreign tendency. LI Ping Heng has Impeached LI Hung Chang, Llu Kun Yl, viceroy of Nankin, and others on a charge of maintaining relations with foreigners. A Tien Tsin dispatch dated Aug. 1, to Berlin, gives a report of an Imperial edict issued July 27, ordering the recap ture of Taku and Tien Tsin by troops from Shan Tung and the south. Detailed accounts of (he reconnaissance of July 30 say that the enemy’s guns that were attacked near Pei Tsang were only the advanced post and Pei Tsang, it Is be lieved. can only be captured after a hard struggle. ■- Gen. Gaseless and his staff accompanied the reconnaissance, but no British troops were engaged. Advance Reported Delayed. A dispatch to the Morning Post from Che Foo, dated July 30, says: "The Russians at Tien Tsin refuse to oliow the Americans to put up telephone wires on the railroad poles and they claim the railroad, which English engineers are uady to work. "The situation Is critical. The river Is full of railroad sleepers. Hundreds of dead bodies of Chinese, some decapitated, are floating in the streets.” Four more missionaries, according to Shanghai advices dated Saturday, have been murdered near Hankow. The Tien Tain correspondent of the Times, wiring July 31, says: "The previous decision to move to-mor fow has been revised. It Is reported that the American commander ts no*(. unwilling to advance until he Is reinformed. The Japanese reconnoiseance yesterday appar ently Inclined them to favor waiting for further reinformecents. The Russians and French acqulsced. "Gen. Gaselee Is anxious to advance, but his command is so small, only 3.000, that he cannot take the lead. The date for the departure of the expedition la therefore, again uncertain. Commenting upon this dispatch the Time* eaye: *‘Jt is perhaps Inevitable, although un- I Jsatoantral) fHofttints doubtedly disappointing, --that the advance should be delayed.” It will be noticed that the dispatch to the Daily Express announcing that the troops had started is dated two days later than the dispatch to the Times and two ‘lays later than any other dispatch pub lished in London this morning. There is no way of verifying the statements of the Daily Express correspondent. They must simply be taken for what they are worth. RUMORED REPULSE OF ALLIES. Murderous LI Plus Hen? Made Com mander of Chinese. Paris, Aug. s.—The Shanghai corre spondent of the Temps, telegraphing to day, says: “The number of allies leaving Tien Tsin is no better known here than are the facts as to the march itself, but It is rumored that the advance gurad has been repulsed. “Li Ping Heng, former governor of Shan Tung, has been named commander of the Chinese force.” Paris, Aug. 6, 1 a. m.—The French con sul at Shangha, telegraphing Saturday, says: ‘‘Li Hung Chang informs me that Ll Ping Heng was appointed general of the troops in the north of the empire on his arrival at Pekin.” r THEY CAN COM >ll NIC ATE.

The French foreign office has received the following dispatch from the French cosul at Che Foo, dated Aug. 2: “The Governor of Moukden, In a pro clamation, has urged the people of Man churia to massacre Christians. Nearly all the missions have been destroyed. The missionaries have organized for defense, and are assisted by other Christians.” EARL LI IS PROBABLY AX.IVE. No Confirmation of the Report of His Suicide. London, Aug. 6, 2:45 a. m.—The Shang hai report that Li Hung Chang had com mitted suicide has not been definitely con tradicted, but all the advices received from that point, up to this hour, indi cate that he is alive. DID NOT COMMIT SUICIDE. Li Hung Chang Is Simply In a Very Despondent State. Shanghai, Aug. s.—The report that Ll Hung Chang had committed suicide is without foundation. He is only in a very despondent state. The Chinese consul here has received a message from Pekin saying that Gen. Tung Fuh Slang has stopped all provi sions goln to the legations. Admiral Seymour arrived at Shanghai to-day. Chinese Fortifying at Pekls. Brussels, Aug. s.—The Belgian vice con sul at Tien Tsin. wiring Aug. 4. says that the Chinese in Pekin are fortifying their position outside the British legation. He adds that all the members of the Belgian legation are in good health. Atgnn Taken by Russians. St. Petersburg. Aug. s.—The Russian war office has received a dispatch from Gen.

NO SATISFACTORY ANSWER. RELATED DISPATCH FROM CONGER ASKS FOR RELIEF. Relieved la Washington That the Ministers Are Safe—Cipher Dis patches Not Allowed to Pass, ami Even Plain Messages Have Bceu Turned Down—Chaffee Is Meeting: Many Difficulties— No Credence in Report of Enrl Li’s Salcido. Washington, Aug. 5.—A belated dispatch from Minister Conger was received to-day at the State Department. It came through Consul General Goodnow at Shanghai, who transmitted messages received by Mr. Ragsdale, United States consul at Tien Tsin, from Mr. Conger and Mr. Squiers, secretary of the United States legation at Pekin. In effect the advices are the same as those received a day or two ago by the State Department from Consul Fowler, at Che Foo. Mr. Goodnow's message was transmitted to President McKinley at Can ton, and Mr. Adee, acting secretary of state, alter in the day Issued the following statement concerning it: ‘‘Consul General Goodnow, in a cable gram dated Shanghui, Aug. 5, which was received at the Department of State at 4 o’clock this (Sunday) morning, reports the receipt by Consul Ragsdale at Tien Tsin, of messages from Minister Conger, and the secretary of the legation, Mr. Squiers, dated July 21, to the following effoct: “ ‘All well. No fighting since the 16th by agrement. Enough provisions. Hope for speedy relief.’ ‘‘Mr. Goodnow adds that the director of posts, 6heng, had on the sth communi cated to him an imperial edict dated July 30, ordering Jung Lu to provide an escort for the ministers to Tien Tsin when the ministers fix the date. The edict says the miniatera can receive messages not in cipher, but notwithstanding this, plain messages were returned to some consuls on Aug. 4." Belief That They Are Safe. While the messages from Minister Con ger and Secretary Squiers bear date of July 21, the belief, founded not only upon them, but also upon collateral and later information, is that the legatloners are yet safe from at least immediate harm. At present there is no means of knowing whether the minTstcf’s 3the of fer of the Chinese imperial government to provide an escort for them to Tl?n Tsin. but it is surmised they will prefer to remain within the British legation at Pekin until the. arrival of the allied forces. Should they leave for Tien Tsin, in all probability it would be because they re gard it the safer course to pursue. It is thought to be not unlikely that the Chi nese government may be very insistent upon the departure of the ministers. In the hope, if they can be gotten to Tien Tsin safely, the storming of Pekin may be averted. The inhibition of cipher dispatches to the ministers while a serious breach of diplomatic usage. Is not regarded here with apprehension. The Chinese govern ment, ii is pointed out, is suspicious- of the acLions of the Powers and probably has adopted this precaution to prevent com munication to the ministers of details of military movement. It is evident from the adoption of this measure that the imperial government regards itself as antagonistic io. if not actually at war with the Powers. Thus far, no inhibition has been placed upon cipher dispatches passing between the various governments and their consu lar representatives in China outside of Pe kin. Definite Reply Awaited. The Slate Department has taken the ground that the dispatch from the Tsung li-Yamen, delivered at the department yes terday by Minister Wu. Is not an answer to the dispatch of Secretary Hay sent on Aug. 1. In that dispatch Secretary Hay Anally and decisively insisted that free communication with the ministers must be established before any steps would be tak en by this government toward a peaceful solution of the present trouble. This dis patch was sent to Consul General Good now to be by him transmitted to Ll Hung Chang. The message delivered by Min ister Wu to the State Department yester day relative lo the inhibition of cipher dis patches, was sent by the Tsung-11-Yamen on July 30. As of that date. It already had been communicated to Ihe department by Consul Fowler. Obviously, therefore, it could not be a reply to the dispatch sent to Mr. Goodnow by Secretary Hay of Aug. 1. A deAnlte reply to the Secretary's dis patch of the Ist instant is awaited, with some concern, not to say anxiety. It is the final word of the United States gov ernment In the pending negotiations. The demand must be acceded to. If trouble of serious character Is to be averted. Minister Wu is not In the city to-day, having gone to Cape May to pass Sunday with his family. It was said m the Chinese legation that he will probably re turn to Washington to-morrow. No dis patches of consequence were received at the legation lb-day, and, it Is said by the legation attaches, no message will he made public from the legation In the ab sence of the minister, unless message* should come which, by reason of their Im portance, should require immediate trans mission to the State Department. Chaffee's Dlftlcnltle*. Neither the war nor the navy depart ment made public any dispatches dgrlrg the day. official* of both departments an nouncing that no dispatches of public In terest had been received. That Gen. Chaf fee is encountering difficulties that are proving serious, there is little attempt to ibnceal. The debarkation of troop* and cavalry horses Is being accomplished with the utmost difficulty. It Is said that the big tansports can approach the landing at Taku no nearer than twelve or fourteen miles. Vessels drawing more than fifteen feet of water are forced to lie far out In the gulf. This necessitates the use.of 'lghters for the transportation to Ihe shore of both men and horses, making the de lation of a considerable force a task sur rounded with Innumerable obstacles. Add ed to the sctual difficulties are the Incon veniences placed upon the troops. Rslns are almost Incessant, heavy fogs are prev alent and the water of the gulf Is exceed ingly rough. That the advance upon Pekin actually began no later than Friday Is well as sured now. Official* of the war depart ment at 111 decline to diacus* the latest message of Gen. Chaffee, daled Friday, which he announced that ths Amerl- can. British and Japanese forces were making the start without the remainder of the allies. While no reasons for the reticence of the department are given, it is well understood that Gen. Chaffee's dispatch at this time cannot be given to the public, as it contains information intended only for the guidance of the offi cials here in the formation of a policy of campaign in China. The report of the suicide of Li Hung Chang te wholly discredited in official circles here, and no Information has been received regarding it to-night, either by our government or at the Chinese lega tion. J SECRETARY LONG ON CHINA. Thinks the Ministers Safe hut Con ditions Are Serious. Boston, Aug. s.—Secretary of the Navy John D. Long is at his Hingham home for a vacation. In an interview on the Chinese situation he said that everything looked brighter when he left the capital. Continuing, he said: “I think, when the allies reach the Chi nese capital, they will find Minister Con ger and the other Americans there, with him alive.” ‘‘Do you think there *lll be a war be tween China and the other nations of the world on account of w’hat has been done?” ‘‘That, of course, I cannot say at pres ent. The condition of affairs is very serious. It is impossible to say what the outcome will be. I do not feel like criticizing Li Hung Chang, for he has been placed In a very peculiar and em barrassing position. Until we get at the facts, it is impossible to talk Intelligent ly about the Chinese government or statesmen.” ‘‘Are any more of our warships or ma rines to be sent to China?” was asked. ‘‘l think not,” was the reply. ”Wc have about 1,000 marines there now’, or w’ill have with the 500 that have recently sail ed from San Francisco.” PORTER DECLINES TO SAY. Qnarantine Kept on hat It In Not Certain That Cases in Tampa Are Yellow Fever. Tampa. Fia.,Aug* s.—State Health Offi cer Porter declined to make a public state ment of the fever situation tonight ex cept that there was no change. The day passed without report of sus picious cases. At present there is only one case in existence about which there is any question, and that is the case of the laun dryman Parker. Baker is entirely out of danger. Dr. Porter, the state health officer, and Dr. White, the Marine Hospital surgeon, are still silent as to whether or not there has been any yellow fever in the city at all. They continued their examinations to-day, but declined to report a definite diagnosis. Dr. Porter said to-night that whether or not there are any further developments, the quarantine would be maintained for at least two weeks. In case there is any infection from the cases already reported new cases may be expected to develop to-morrow. The travel out of the city on to-night's trains was not as large as under norma! conditions. The people have quieted no ticeably, and there is no apprehension or panic. The cordon of guards about the city held up hundreds of people last night and to day who either wished to get In or out of the city. were turned back. WYMAN HEARS FROM TAMPA. Marine Hospital Is Making; Thor ough In ventlgntlon. Washington, Aug. 5. Such Information as has been received by Dr. Wyman, of the Marine Hospital Service, to-day from Tampa shows that there is no change In Ihe yellow fever situation there.

WILL HAVE CHARGE OF FUNDS. MANILA BANKS HAVE FORMED A COMBINE ON GOLD. There Has Been an Increase of In surgent Activity During: the Last Three Weeks—The Entrapping of Lieut. Alataetter's Little Com mand—Manila Policeman Wound ed Commission Looking: Into Property of Friars. Manila. Aug. s.—On Sept, 1 the commis sion, headed by Judge Taft, will become the legislative body of the Philippines, with power to take and appropriate insu lar moneys, to establish judkMal and edu cational system* and to make and pass all laws. No money will he permitted to be drawn from the Insular funds except by au thorization of the commission. Judge Taft and his colleagues will also exer cise certain executive functions. For in stance, they will appoint Judges, offi cials in the educational department and officers of municipalities, which the com mission will establish pending elections. Gen. MacArthur will be the executive head to enforce the laws of the commis sion, and he will conduct the government in accordance with the same until the commission recommends to President Mc- KinJey the appointment of a civil gov ernor. The only three bank* In Manila have formed a ring to reduce arbitrarily and without Justification the rate of exchange for American gold. This has caused wide spread indignation and many difficulties for commerce and minor business. The banks, however, are obdurate. More Insurgent Activity. There has been an increase of insurgent activity during the last three weeks, es pecially in the way of ambushes and at tacks upon small parties. First Lieutenant Alstaeiter of the Engi neer Corps, w ith an escort of fifteen men, w’as taken In ambush in the province of Nueva Ecija, Luzon, by a large force. The Americans fought until their ammu nition was gone, and as they were sur rounded, there was nothing to do but sur render. One man was killed and three were wounded. Gen. Lacuna, who was in command of ths Insurgents, returned the wounded with a letter promising to treat the pris oners well. Lieut. Hulestoerg (?) was ambushed and killed near Santa Cruz, province of La guna. Five Americans Captured. Five men of the Twenty-fourth Infan try were captured in Nueva Ecija, but Sergt. Schmidt, of the Twelfth Infantry, with seven men, trailed the captors an<i killed five. Capt. Lara, of the Manila native police, was dangerously shot by an unknown as sailant yesterday while on the street. He had been effectively enforcing regulations and had made enemies among the Fili pinos, some of whom have long threaten ed vengeance. Lara had been generally accused of gross corruption in office and specific charges were filed against him by an Amerkan officer. At the suggestion of Archbishop Cha pelle, Judge Taft had been examining the heads of the religious orders as well as Mgr. Nozaledas and other ecclesiastics, preparatory to the time when It would be necessary to take definite action regard ing the affairs of the fflars and the church. It appears that the real estate holdings of the friars are smaller than hod been expected. BULLETS IN THEIR HEADS. Van and III* Wife Murdered or Com mitted Suicide. Philadelphia. Aug. s.—Robert W.

Traced ly Superstitions, They At tacked and Killed Chrlutlna* Wherever They Pound Them. New York, Aug, s.—Tn a letter from the Rev. Father Marque*, the superior of the Roman Catholic missionaries in the province of Chi Li, China. Just receiv ed here, he says that at the beginning of the Boxer outbreak the Chinese au thorities sought to protest the Christians. He tells how the native Christians fought against the Boxers and defeated them. “The Boxers say that by the help of certain incantations," writes Father Mnr quet. "they became invulnerable as soon as the spirit to which they surrender themselves has taken possession of them. But whenever a Christian is present or wherever a church stands, the spirit, they say, does no* descend upon them, and so they cannot become invulnerable. In fact, not far from the Christian estab lishment of Tvhu Kin Ho, three of those who had been initiated volunteered afier their incantations o be fired at. Tho first of them was instantly killed, while the two others were wounded mortally. "It was market day and the Boxers, afraid of losing their prestige before the people, proclaimed loudly that this was the fault of the Christians. They spread the news that neophytes had killed one of their adherents and wounded the others, and declared their intention of getting rid of the Christians, sacking their houses and burning their churches." lieu Inii I m of the Trouble. Of the beginning of actual trouble Fath er Marquet writes: "With the exception of three cbmmunl tics, which foreseeing what was uhout to happen, had armed themselves and two others, which were protected by Fagan village chiefs, every Christian establish ment at Kin Tcheou was sacked. At Leou Pa Tchoang, a Christian who wanted to save his house, was stabbed, then an In flammatory fluid was poured over his body and set on fire while he was still breath ing. A few days later It was the turn of tiie Christian establishments of Pou Tcheng. Koo Ho and Tong Koang. The district of Father Andlauer, the real hotbed of the Boxers, suffered most. “The Boxers, nuniliertng 800. attacked the Christians at Ton Tai Kon, not far distant from our residence. The Chris tians had taken up arms. Intrepid, though few in number, the Christians waited for the Boxers and from the roofs of their houses spread death and havoc in the ranks of the enemy. The Boxers fled, but son rallied at the sound of their tom tom in a neighboring village and again were getting ready to storm the village when trumpets were heard which had the effect of throwing them into disorder and made them take flight permanently. The approaching force was a troop of cavalry of the regular army, which Father Becker, in a most pressing latter, had requested the mandarin to dispatch to his help. The cavalrymen came in great haste, and, though they reached the scene of action too late to take part in the victory they at least scattered the enemy. Mnn> Communities Devastated. “Altogether forty-five Christian com munities were devastated, in which no re ligious service of any kind can be le-,1. Should the soldiers, which were sent to our help, be recalled by events occurring on the seacoasts or at Tien Tsin, we would again be at the mercy of these countless hordes, who cherish in their hearts an implacable hatred of Europeans and the Christian religion." KILLED BY TRAIN ROBBERS. fimiff Wini Tliroiijtli I'niiirnKfrii in a l*u 11 inn n nml .Vliiriirrril an Old Man Who RaalNteil. Sallna, Kan., Aur. s.—Union Pacific cast bound passenger trnln No. 4, which left Denver last night, was held up by two men several miles west of Hugo, Cos!., ninety miles thla side of Denver.

An old man named Fay, a resident of California, who had been visiting In Den ver and was on his way to St. Uouis, re fused to surrender his valuables and llrcd a shot at one of the robbers, but missed. Thereupon the robbers fired, one shot entering Fay's mouth and coming out at the hack of his held, killing him almost Instantly. The robbers stopped the train, Jumped off and escaped. The robbers got on one of the sleepers near I.tmon and after the train had start ed, the men made a noise at the door. The conductor, thinking they were tramim, opened the door to put them off. The rob bers, who were masked, pointed a pistol at hts head and ordered him to lead the way through the coaches. All the pass engers were asleep and the conductor was ordered to wake them one at a lime. The frightened passengers were told to keep quiet or they would be killed, and at the same time were asked to hand over their money and valuables. The robbers obtained about SKO In cash and a number of gold watches and other pieces of Jew elry. The robbery look place a few min utes before 1 o’clock this morning. The body of Koy, who was killed, was taken off at Hugo and shipped to Denver. H was 68 years of age. and a promi nent Odd Fellow of California. The conductor, who was compelled to hold the bag while the robbers received the passengers' valuable, lost his watch, and asked that It be returned to him. In order that he might run his train' on time. The robbers gave It back. After ransacking the two coaches the men made the conductor pull the bell cord, but the train was going so rapidly that the robbers were taken to Hugo be fore it slowed up enough to enable them to Jump. They compelled the conductor to get off ahead of them, so that If any of the pasesngers had been in waiting they would have shot him first. After the robbers had dismounted they ordered he conductor to return to his train. Miss Bhaw of Dover, a passenger on the train, arrived fn Ballna tills morning. She stated that when the train was entered ty the men everyone was asleep and very few knew anything of what was going on until they were awakened by the robbers. When the men came to her berth a plvol was pointed at her face and she was told to lie quiet and hand over her valuables. With great preaence of mind she opened her pocket book, let a number of bills fall out, and then handed the purse, containing tutus silver, to the robbers.'ll FOII TUB NORTH POLE.
