Chaffee's Plans 4’rlllelaed by Rrlfish
London, Bept. 21. 4 a. m.—Such Pekin
dispatches a* appear this morning tend to
confirm the suspicion# regarding the al
titude of Russia already expressed by Dr.
Morrison, the correspondent of the Times
at the Chinese capital.
The Dally News prints a telegram al
most identical with the advices to Ihe

that, In Ihe opinion of the correspondent,
the Russians only desire to Induce tho
other Power* to withdraw.
The Morning Post's Pekin representa
tive. writing, Kept. 13, expresses Ihe sam>
opinion. He declares that M. de Glers
will not go unless tha other ministers go
also. The Russian legation, he asserts,
had prej>ar*d to go. but reversed Its In
tention. pending further Instructions. This
delay, he thinks, due In all protwblllty to
ihe non-departure of the other legations.
