Kt-ar Admiral Kemp if H*Mrd Krom. London. June 26.--The British cruiser Terrible has arrivi-d at CUefoo from Taku wlib the latest aews. which is as follows: '·Hisht hundred Sikhls and 200 "Welsh fusiliers have affected a junc- tlou.wUh the American. Gorman and Russian forces which had been cut off by the Chinese about nine miles from Tien Tsin. it was proposed to deliver an assauli upon the Chinese forces at Tien Tsin Sunday night." It is not c!ejir what forces united. It would seem that one relieving force, cut off. haii been relieved by another. At any rat*:, it is apparently certain th^.1 ilio ^Ilie^ arrived in sufficient force at Tien Tsin SuaiHy to attack tho besieging Chinese. "Foreign official opinions here." says a ds?p:i:ch from Shanghai, "inclines to believe that the worst has .i..:.:".-iii.u i j tut: ieg-uiunb al reh.iu anu to Admiral Seymour as well. Even if the legations v:ere safe on June 19. there is no guarantee that they are safe now. The situation, in fact, grows more and more gloomy. The entire absence of reliable ne\vs from the capita! seems to justify the worse con- siruezloa v. Iiioh un Lc put upon it. "*};'3" nevs COP 3 ::? from Nan King, where the unrest is said 1C J 36 growing aourly. Viceroy Liu Kin YiE~!l25 i£;^El^ 1 REAP. ADMIRAL KBMPPF. telegraphed the British authorities that he has ordered the five Chinese cruisers which have been lying off the harbor here to proceed to Nan King." According to Japanese reports Admiral Seymonr has been captured and the ministers have left Pekin, guarded by Chinese soldiers. Their whereabouts is unknown. "Gen. Ma's army," says a correspondent at Shan Hai Kwan, "consisting of 4.CCO taen, left a week ago for Pekin, ana Gen. Sung dung's forces, numbering 2,500, left for the same place on June 15. "A careful estimate" of the number and armament of the Chintse troops around Pekin puts the total at 360.000. and it is calculated that these troops possess 227 centimeters creusote guns, 18 Krupps and 150 Maxims. Their supply of ammunition is practically inexhaustible. Fully three-fourths of the Chinese forces are badly drilled, wholly undisciplined and quite unfamiliar with modern weapons." Another Shanghai dispatch says: "Li Ping Heng, former governor of Shan Tung, who is intensely anti-foreign, has gone to the Kiang Yin forta, on the Yang Tse. He has declared his intention of resisting th£ landing of British forces in that region." According to a Hong Kong dispatch, dated yesterday, strong reinforcements of Indian police, with three Maxims, have been sent Jo Kow Loon, on the mainland. A Che'oo message of yesterday says: "Four cannon hare been added to the west fort here, where are now 1,000 soldiers permanently encamped, a further force caving arrived from King Chon. There is an nneasy feeling prevailing here, and an attack is generally anticipated. Chinese merchants are closing their offices and preparing to leave the port. All business is at a standstill." Extensive preparations by the allies are going forward. The first regiment of British India, 10,000 men, embarked at Calcutta yesterday, and 833 more .marines received orders to go eut from English ports. Tfi« British war office, in anticipation of a prolonged campaign, is contracting for winter clothing and fur caps. Tbe Amur anay corps, ordered ont by Russia, numbers 32JOO men with 84 guns. Japan purposes to land 15.000 men on Chinese territory within a fortnight. Among the minor military preparations the Portngaese governor of Macao. Island of Macao, at tbe southwest entrance of Canton river, is sending arms to the Portuguese In Caa- ton. The Germans in Hong Kong have cabled Emepror William to ask if they may serve in tbe local forces in defense of Hong Kong. A million rouads left Hong Kong yesterday for Taku by tbe British ste?mer Hailoong. The Shanghai correspondent of The Times sends the following under yesterday's date: "A military correspondent at Taku says that the operations of the allies are suffering from tbe want of a recognized head, defective organization and the lack of transport."

June 26. -United States Consul Join, Fowler has received from Rear Adi^'nil Kempff the following: "Only one communication from Pekin has reaci - l me since communications were intenupted on June 10. It was dated June 12. No direct or indirect news from the ministers since. "About 430 foreign troops, including 56 American marines, went to Pekin to guard the legations. , A force of 100 Americans, uniting with a total force of 2,500 men of -!'. nationalities, repre- sentPd herp went on June 10 to open the road and relieve Pekin. This movement was by permission of the Chinese government. "The latest news from the expedition was dated June 12, when the expedition was at Lang Fang. The railroad has been destroyed behind it since. "Any news that can he obtained or effort made for the relief of the legations and the lives and property of foreigners should be done at any hazard. All energies and forces here must first be directed to the relief of Tien Tsin. particularly as it is the key to Pekin." TIXG FASTS'* Our Government Refoned to Order Marine* to Reranln Peaceful. Washington, June 26.--TJhe chief development yesterday in the Chinese situation was the effort of the Chinese minister. Wu Ting Fang, to secure an armistice in the operation of American troops untlt Li Hung Chang could reach. Pekin and bring about a cessation of the disorder. The proposition is rather a novel one, and is based upon the representations of the viceroys of the important provinces of the Tang Tse Kiang valley that they can maintain order without the aid of foreign troops, and that the presence of foreigners would act merely as an incentive to disorder. Minister Wu brought these representations to the attention of Secretary Hay, who consulted the president. The latter's decision, as subsequently conveyed to the minister, was that while the assurances of the viceroys for continued quiet was fully appreciated, the United States could not bind itself not to send its forces to points where disorder actually existed and where the safety of our officials and citizens are endangered. High government officials said it amounted practically to an offer of armistice and a refusal on the pert of the United States to mafee the arrangement. Secretary Long said, when be left the navy department for the day, that nothing had come from Admiral Kempff on the casualties of ice first engagement of the American marines with the Chinese or on the outcome*of the second engagement which was to have occurred Saturday or Snnday. The only dispatch received by the secretary was a belated one from Admiral Kempff asking for instructions as to ·whether he should co-operate with the other naval forces in taking the Take forts. Tats must have been sent some Jars 2gc. as tie Tzku forts Trere tak^n the middle of last week. A SWMSH SWINDLER. nt» The Net Set by Lord Roberts to Capture Them.

London, June 26.--Lord Roberts' six columns are converging, apparently so as to close in upon the Free Staters, although undecided results cannot be expected for several days. A number of Boers who were supposed to be within the wide flung net have broken, or rather stolen, through Gen. Rundle's Ficksburg-Senekal lines. The Canadians were engaged in Honing Spruit fight last Friday. Gen. De "fret's First cut off a Canadian outpost of mounted rifles at dawn, two being killed. Lieutenant Triglis and four others were wounded and three were captured. The Free Staters then attacked the camp where were 50 Canadians and two companies of Shrop- shires, although without much effect, as the men were all entrenched. The foreign military attaches who were with Lord Roberta are now in Cape Town en route for Europe. United States Consul Hay. of Pretoria, is going to Machadodorp in the interest of the British prisoners and to see President Kruger. Eighty Hollanders have been lodged in jail at Standerton for destroying property prior to the British occupation. The wives and children of the Boers are surprised that the British do not loot, but pay for what they get. The Boere derailed a construction train near Standerton on June 24. Two trainmen were killed and four badly hurt. A party of Brabant's hors-, near Ficksburg. saw a camp of khak! rlad men and walked in, only to fir..', tbem- selves-among the Boers. The vlaitors surrendered. The Lorenzo Marques correspondent of The Tiroes, telegraphir-s yesterday, says: "The Boers are losing a larr« ni'is- ber of horses from the eoi'i . -iJ Iron? | lack of food, and the surviv .- .ire ri miserable condition. The insdei'iacy of the Boer corcznisariat is telitng on the burghers."^ ni» \ttfM»it to Swindle I "I!Z..oil IUJttUou»." JR.

The i't.n='il transmits a sample letter c I'scJ ia the attempt to de- !tv::;£ r :u6^Wi- sten '- of and was signed "Lou Stenl." and In the writer claims and" explains a close relationship with the recipient of the letter. "Louis Semper Stenl" recites that he has como into possession of some $650,000, confessedly an embezzlement from the Spanish government, but in order to ensure his money against recorerment by the officials has deposited it in a Mexican bank, payable upon presentation of a check accompanied by a certain countersign arranged between himself and the bank. Certain legal steps hijve been taken against him, and in lieu of ready money to defray his part of the proceedings he has been put In prison, and his personal effects, including a valise in which reposes the "countersigned" check for his fortune, are about to be sold at auction. In return for timely financial aid from bis "blood relation" he promises a quarter of his fortune, his daughter's share of the money during her minority, and his everlasting gratitude. His daughter is at a convent and the prior Is the sole other possessor of hio secret. He a±k» thai, a reply be sent to Teodoro Runez, Calle de Swivela, C!r sVoerl. Madrid. The latter Is a nephew of the prior, but is ignorant of the existence of the check, and the writer therefore cautions that the answer be sent in an envelope within one addressed to "Runez." Similar communications have been sent to persons all over the United States. ROOSEVELT'S WESTERN TS!?. te*re« Xeit Friday For tbf Rrnnlon Parent* Chanced With Mtn-der. "Wheeling. W. Va..
