Will Be I'nellilated— Hope for Har
mony Among the Powers.
Washington, Sept. I—Orders have been
cabled to Gen. Chaffee to prepare hfcs
forces for withdrawal from Pekin.
Furiher than that, the War Department
has taken steps to have at Taku a suffi
cient of Untied Slates transports
to remove these troops lo ihe Philippine*
as soon as they reach the port.
These orders are preparatory, and do
not necessarily Indicate that our govern
ment has decided Anally upon an Immedi
ate withdrawal from China. It I* simply
placing Itself In a position to carry out
Ihe pledge conveyed In the reply lo Ihe
Russian note in ihlg language:’
"The result of these considerations la
that, unices there Is such a general ex
pression by the Powers In favor of con
tinued occupation, as to modify the views
expressed by the government ot RiirS.a
and lead to a general agreement for con
tinued occupation, we shall give Instruc
tions to the American officials In China
to withdraw our troops from Pekin afer
due conference with the other command
ers as to tha time and manner of with
Our Policy Not Changed.
Up to the present our government ha*
not changed Ita policy In thla matter of
withdrawing our troot from China a*
soon as this could be done consistently.
It Is Intimated lhat the prospect for se
curing the** objects through completely
harmonious act on by the Powers, ta
brightening every day. It Is felt that this
la a time for compromise propositions, as
between the Russian and German design*
In China, and such propositi >na now form
the substance of nearly all the diplomatic
exchange* wh.rh are In dally progress.
The continuance of quiet tn Pekin, tend
ing to reassure the Chinese officials. I*
believed to he rapidly hastening negotia
tions for a Anal settlement There Is ths
best reaavn tn believe that were the Chi
nese government once assured of th# per
sonal safety of Its members; were II re
lieved of a f. ar of the dismemberment of
China, and the menace of a large foreign
force In the capital, the Imperial court. In
cluding the Kmperor and Empress Dow
ager, would lose no time In returning to
Pekin and opening negotiations for a set
tlement. Hence the suggestion ha* been
thrown out that the allied forces In Pekin
he reduced to a number sufficient to In
sure ths Immediate safety of the lega
tions. while the remaining fores retire be
yond ths walled city, perhaps to Tien
Tsln. and If the progress of the negotia
tion* seems lo warrant It. perhaps be
withdrawn altogether from Chinese soli.
Obstacle* Rlay He Overcome.
There ore only t*o obstacles to Ihe ex
ecution of this plan. One Is the difficulty
of framing suitable guarantees for the
continuance of a satisfactory conclusion
of the negotiations for the final settle
ment. The oilier Is the uncompromising
attitude of one of the Powers. It Is now
believed that the difficulty as to guaran
tees can be satisfactorily adjusted. The
other obstacle may be overcome hy a
threatened Isolation of the' refractory
Power; for It la believed that no one
Power would care to pursue a war upan
China when the other Power* had de
llberty expressed their Judgment lhat
further hosillltles were unwarranted. Be
sides. hostilities under such conditions,
tending to Injure the Interest* of the
other*Power* In China, might be regard
ed by them aa authorizing a Joint de
mud upon the single Power for guaran
tees, which would be very difficult lo
For thla reason It Is hoped that th* Pow

the matter of Ihe evacuation of Pekin and
It Is entirely possible, If thl* plan 1* exe

Copyright, 1900. the Associated Press.
Parts, Sept France Is In a dilemma.
Russia's proposition to withdraw from
Pekin ha* resolved Itself Into t problem
for her which French statesmen are now
isckllng very gingerly.
The complete withdrawal from Hekln.
after careful consideration. Is now deem
sd not to be altogether In line with
France's Interests. France Is now forced
to choose between the course she would
rather have adopted and the policy dic
tated lo her hy the Russian alliance, und
French ptadeernft ha*beendevoted for Ihe
past week lo an endeavor to splice these
two conflicting policies into g compromise
wh'ch will not Jeopardise her friendship
with Russia, and at ihe same time will
not prejudice her own position In China.
The suggestion, therefore, that while
the bulk of the troops be withdrawn from
Pekin a small International fori* be still
retained In Ihe city, comes as a peculiar
ly a. i-eptabls Ides to France. Russia and
Germany appear to be Ihe only serious
stumbling blocks In th way of a general
acceptance of this compromise, the first
named desiring the total withdrawal of
the allied force* and Ihe latter wishing
a continued occupation.
Should ihe proposal fall through and
Russia and America withdraw all their
forces. Fran * would undoubtedly follow
suit. II would he a rude shock lo the
Husso-French for Franca m
abandon her ally and remain ln % ivkln
with, ae her associates, her hereditary
enemies. England and Oermnny.
Ml ailtn of Itasßia'a Plan.
The Frenrh government appreciates the
great element of wisdom In Ihe Musco
vite proposal, recognizing that a contin
ual*** of th* present form of occupation
would prevent early and iHrevt negotia
tions with Ih* Empress Dowager, who
fears to return tn the capital, and that,
moreover, the administration of the af
fairs of th* city would throw libmcnse
responsibility and labor upon the Rurnp
*u commander* They would need to un
dertake the proper policing of ivkln. *llh
Ita million* of Inhabitants, all of whom
are now filled with haired for the "for
eign devils,” to arrange win It ary and fire
precautions and an endlera list of oiher
municipal detail*. The provisioning of
afld keeping open communication from the
sea coash for * big force Id Pekin during
th'Winter when the country la snow
covered and froaen. also presents a prob
lem of extreme difficulty.
Another move which would Impel
France to follow Russia If the latter
withdraw* her troop*. Is the fact that th#
French force* would thereby avoid re
maining under the command of Field Mar
shal Count von M'aldera*#.
Lack of leewrit In t'ktna.
An eye opener as to the lack of accord

but eventually the Qerman and then Un-

which was not agreeable to them. It I*
apparent that there ta no accord between
the military chiefs.”
Two days Jatsr Marolles writes:
"The Russian* made a reconnolssance
on Ihe left hank without notifying any
one. when a fusllade began and the town
suffered an hour's bombardment."
After recounting other Instances of the
Isolated aetkm of Gen. Hlessel, he says,
on July 8 Gen. Stews*! advised him that
he would withdraw the next day, <hc out
