The government of His Majesty the Km

P'r entering Into diplomatic negotiations
with lha Chinese government a surrender
ef such persons os are determined upon as
g the first and real perpetrators of
1 • crimes committed In Pekin against In

who served as tools Is 100 great; a
" “sale execution would be averse to

' imber of those punished Is of less

t-l -a .gators and leaders. The govern

Department of Stale. Washington. Sept.
21, 1900 Sir: In response to your
Inquiry of the 18th Instant as
lo the attitude of the govern
ment of the United State* in regard lo
the exemplary punishment of the nota
ble leaders In tho crimes committed Ip
Pekin against Intel national law. I have
the honor to make the following state
The government of the United Stales
has from the ousel proclaimed Its pur
pose to hold to the uttermost accounta
bility the responsible uushors of any
wrongs done In China to clttxens of the
United States and their Interests, as was
staled in the government's circular com
munication to the powers of
July 3 last. These wrongs have been
committed not aiotie tn Pekin, hut in
many parts of the empire, and their pun
ishment I* believed to he an essentia! el
ement of any effective settlement which
shall prevent a recurrence of such out
rages and bring aliout |>ern>.nent safety
and p. i • In China. It is thought, how
ever, that no punitive measures can I*o so
effective by way of reparation for wrongs
suff, red and as deterrent examples for the
future as the degradation and punishment
of the responsible authors by the supreme
Imperial authority Itself, and it stems
only Just lo China that she should tat af
forded In the first instance an opportunity
to do this and thus rrhatAlltate herself
betore the world. Believing thus, and
without abating In any wise its deliberate
purpose to ns. t the fullest accountability
from the responsible author of the
wrongs w have suffered In China, the
government of the United State* la not
disposed, os a preliminary condition to
entering Into diplomatic m gotlatlon with
the Chinese-government, to Join In a de
mand that said government surrender to
the Powers such persons us, according
to the determination of the Powers tjicm
selvi-s. may l*e held to be Ihe rtrst an,!
real perpetrator* of these wrongs. On the
other hand, this government Is disposed
to hold that the punishment of the high,
responsible authors of these wrongs, not
only In Pekin, but throughout China. Is
essentially a condition to be embraced and
provided for In the negotiation* for a Bnal
settlement. It ts the purpose of this gov
ernment at the earliest practicable mo
ment. to name It* plenipotentiaries for
negotiating a settlement with China, end
in the meantime to authorise Us minister
in i’ekiu to enter forthwith Into confer
erne with the duly authorized represent
atives of the Chinese government with a
view- to bringing about a preliminary
agreement whereby the full exercise of
the Imperial power for the preservation of
order and the protection of foreign life
and properly throughout China, pending

Accept, sir, the renewed assurance, of
