Washington, July 9.--The last China mail to reach the state department brought the report of Minister Conger, perhaps the last that will ever come to hand. This bears date of Pekin, May 21. It is of the utmost importance, disclosing, as it does, a full com- preiieiisiou on the pari ot the foreign ministers in Pekin of the character and extent of the Boxer uprising, even through Mr. Conger himself, by disposition optimistic, found some reason to hope that the worst was over at that date. What Mr. Conger has to say as to the attitude of the Chinese government toward the Boxer movement, as revealed in the formal interchange that took place between himself and the tsung-H-yamen is not only of peculiar interest now. but probably will have a strong bearing on the final reckoning that- must be bad between the civilized nations and the Chinese. Mr. Conger makes it very clear, through the publication of the French priest's letter, that at least one, and probably all of the European nations having interests in northern China were acquainted with the dangers of the situation at least two or three weeks before the actual outbreak in Pekin. The letter to Secretary Hay of May 21 is as follows: "In response *o the request of the French minister the dean called a meeting of tke diplomatic corps yea- Vr Oi Pi Ui Wi CURES AT.T.

CONGER. - terday, and upon information furnished in a letter from the Catholic bishop in Pekin and verbal reports by the other ministers, the situation was considered so grave that the corps unanimously instructed the dean to present it to the tsung-li-yamen and demand immediate and effective measures, which he did today by the note, copy of which is enclosed. "I also enclose copies of the bishop's letter and one from Rev. Mr. Killie, an American missionary, who lives in Pekin. but travels a circuit to the north and east. "On the 18th inst., during an extended personal interview with tbe tsnng- li-yamen, I called their attention to the fact tbat notwithstanding constant warnings from this and other legations the Boxers bad continually increased and spread until now they are boldly organized inside the wall of Pekin. the existence of thousands is known, in the villages around Pekin. Christian converts are being persecuted and threatened everywhere, many forced to recant their religious professions, and come have been compelled to abandon their chapels and come to Pekin for safety. "I said: 'At a London mission near Chou Chow. 40 miles west of Pekin. two native Christians have been killed and their chapel destroyed. Near Pao Ting" Fu. a Catholic village bas b«en destroyed and 61 Christians murdered, some of them being burned alive. The foreign governments cannot longer sit Idly by and witness this persecution and murder. I can only speak for my own government, bnt it is becoming very impatient over China's continued treaty violations. It always bas been and still is tbe good friend of China, and only -«-isbes it prosperity, bui is now more than ever determined to sustain the treaty rights of all American citizens and of tbe Christian converts, aad it will bold the Chinese government to the strictest responsibility for ervery treaty infraction in this regard. It will do this not only for the benefit of its own cid- rens. bnt in the interest of China herself, wbose government is now sadly- threatened by these lawless organizations. At present.

"J told them I saw no effective measures whatever being put forth. They replied that the movement had not heretofore been looked upon as serious, but that now tbe throne was fully aware of the gravity of the situation that a recent confidential decree had been sent to the viceroy, tbe Pekin and neighboring officials, which would surely prove effective, suppress tbe Boxers and restore order. "I told them that the most alarming telegrams were being sent to the newspapers ol Europe and America of the existing state of anarchy here, and that the people of the world would be forced to believe tbat the government of China was either abetting these murderous brigands or that it was too weak to suppress or control them, and its good name and credit roust suffer irretrievably In consequence. After reading me the decree, which, was much like those heretofore published, they asked if I would not wire my government tbat they could and were suppressing the Boxers. "I replied tbat at present I would not; tbat I bad been for six months telegraphing the issuance of ineffective decrees, but if they would show me the fact by accual and immediate repression, which they could if they would, in three days I would gladly and quickly wire it to my government. "They assured me tbat sufficient troops had been sent to the disturbed districts to restore order and afford protection. "I again, told them that restored order would be the only possible proof. I also said tbat unless the situation was relieved and the threatening danger from mobs averted I should be compelled to ask for a sufficient guard of American marines to Insure the safety of the legation. "They said: 'Ob, don't do that. It is unnecessary/ and again promising energetic action the Interview closed. "Unless some energetic action is taken the situation will become fraught with, great danger to all foreigners, not from any intelligent or organized attacks, but from ignorant and inflamed mob violence. I, bow- ever, believe, as I said in my telegram, that the government is aroused, itself alarmed at the situation, and will take more energetic action, but no one can be certain of this until it is done. "Since the United States steamship Wheeling had already left Taku, I deemed it prudent to ask tbe admiral for the presence of another war vessel, and. responding to the request. Admiral K^mpff. with the Newark, sailed hither from Yokohama on tbe 19th inst. and should arrive soon." The enclosures referred to by Mr. Conger follow.

Having fought to a standstill the first outbursts of fanatical fury, it is believable that something may intervene to save them. The news, after the sinister rumors of the lust leu days, is enough upon which to build up hopes. The Shanghai correspondent of The Express, telegraphing on Sunday, at 5:10 p. m.. however, throws doubt upon Consul Warren's information. He says: "Taotal Sheng now admits that there was an error in his communication to Gen. Warren. The date of the courier's arrival at Chinen Fu was July 3. which does not apply to bis departure from Pekin. The journey from Pekiu to Chinen Fu occupies five days. The courier, therefore, could not have left Pekin later than June 28. The date of the massacre there, as given by Chinese reports, was June 30 or July 1." Tien Tain is still hard pressed. -\ Chinese force numbering from 80,000 to 100,000 men, as estimated by incon- ers." VICTIMS OF HOBOKEN'S HOLOCAUST.

This makes 29 bodies that have thus far been taken from, the wreck of the Saale since the fire, and 146 bodies In all recovered.

Taku Is apparently possible by river only. A Crefoo dispatch says the Russians have landed 3,000 men at Taku and the Japanese have discharged several transports. The Japanese pushed on So Tien TsiiJ, leading in the subsequent i assault upon the native river, in which ' their commander was killed. Ten mor) ' transports are engaged at Japanese ports. With the 10,000 British India troops afloat and fresh Japanese contingents It is quite probable that the allies will soon have 50,000 men ashore. The disorders in the provinces appear to be increasing in violence. A Chinese army is within 40 miles of New Chwang, and the foreigners are preparing to abandon their homes. The southern part of the province is swept by raiders, destu-yirg all works of the white man. except in spr.ts garrisoned by Russians. Proclamations have been posted in all villages near Chefoo calling upon the loyal Chinese to rise and expel the foieigners for introducing among the pious Chines" an immoral religion. Every good Buddhist is eipected to kneel three hours daily, knock hi? head upon the floor thrice and pray earnestly that sudden, cruc! death may overtake all aliens. The foreign settlement at Chefoo is at the mercy of two Chinese forts equipped wjth Krupp gnas. which command two sides of the city. Six warships, including tbe United States gunboat Nashville, are constantly cleared for action. ' The provisional government at Pekin appears to have designs upon the ecuthern provinces.

A column of water was burled into the air and the water agitated for a long distance by the charge, but no bodies were floated. Another charge was fired, but to no purpose.

July 9.--The storm which swept Lake Erie Saturday night was one of the most sudden and severe known to the summer season. Many yachts were broken from their moorings and driven on shore, and the damage to small craft will be considerable. The large passenger steamer Pearl, which was caught by the squall as she was backing from her dock at Crystal Beach, Out., with 900 Buffalo excursionists on board and driven stern foremost on a sand bar, was release*}. The damage to the boat proved trifliur. Tbe rescue of the passengers was ;-.··. ii- ous.

The subject will also probably conic up. though In an informal way. at today's meeting of the advisory committees." Senator J. K. Jones, of Arkansas. chairman of the Democratic national conunltut\ arrived here from Kansas City last evening, and later held an extended conference with W. J. Bryan. Charles A. Towne and Giwge Fred Williams, in talking about th» vfc« presldcnti;:! situation Senator Jones said he hoped and believed that in case Mr. Towne withdrew his name as a Populist candidate for the vice presidency the national committee of that partv would »nrfor««» t h » T ^ :n"?nit!c ticket. "We arc all Independent." continued Senator Jones. ''and like to carry to K successful conclusion our own plans.

Bryan should unite with us. Of course if Mr. Towne does not withdraw fusion on the electoral ticket of the various slates should and prob- ahlv will he arranged." During today's conference, at which Senator Jones, Senator Hettfeld, J. R. Sovereign, Senator Allen and Chairman Edmisten. of the Populist national committee, are expected to be present, the vice presidential complication will be considered In all its phases. At this meeting it is also expected that plans for concentrated effort in state and congressional campaigns. which were practically agreed upon at the meeting of the conference committees of the Democratic, Silver Republican and 'Populist parties in Kansas Cit-.-. will be complrtM. Should Mr. Towne decide to withdraw his name from the Popnltat ticket this would leave. the way clear for uniting the three parties in the support of tht Democratic national ticket, and a strong effort will be made to bring about this result through the Populist national committee. Populist national committeemen are, it is understood, far from being unanimous in their opinions as to the wisest course to pursue in case Mr. Vowne decides to withdraw, but those of the Populist conferrees who are already in the cltr expressed their belief today that an understanding involving the working in harmony of the three parties in the coming presidential campaign would be reached before the adjournment of the conference. Mr. Towne spent nearly the entire day with Mr. Bryan, taking dinner with him, and later, in a party which included ex-Congressman Hartman of Montana and George Fred Williams of Massachusetts, drove out to Mr. Brvan's farm. Elaborate plans are being made for the ratification meeting to be held here tomorrow afternoon and night, and It is the Intention to make the affair .ts far as possible the formal opening of the Democratic national campaign.
