Umdon. July 23.-- Sir Chlh Chen Loh F*QK. the Chinese minister is Ijjn- doD. took the unusual step yesterday of paying a Sunday vat! at the foreign office. As I.ord Salisbury was absent. lue Matt was v, t t b u u t special raault, but Its Importance may be gathered from an interview with the secretary of the (Mnu^se legation. Sir Hatliday MacArtney. in which the legation officials seem to have assumed at least something like personal responsibility. S'.r HaHIdiy admitted that communication hid b«en practically reopened ·with Pekm. and that messages from Sir CUiuie MclVmald. the British minister, and the other foreign envoys might be expected almost immediately. He said he hoped the trouble would soon be over, since the Chinese government ·was doing its utmost to overcome the difficulties and to control the lawless element. In hU opinion the Americans had taken the most rommonsense view of the situation, and he insisted that China ought not to be misjudged. Against the suspicion, that U Hung C-- uHg h«i5 aa;. uai u j»iut.eie paciuc object in view he protested warmly, declaring that all stories about the perfidy and treachery of Earl LI were "absolutely baseless." "With regard to the prospects in the southern provinces the secretary admitted that there might be small outbreaks. but he said there would be nothing serious, and that Europeans would be quite safe in treaty ports. The long silence he explained as "due probably to the rebels, who have cut the wires and blocked the roads." Thus, according to the secretary of the Chinese legation, a few days more should bring a. solution of the great TICK ABJCFBAt, AT.EXLEFT. mystery. Nevertheless, no one In England believes that the alleged dispatches and edicts are anything but subterfuges to bids the real situation as long as possible and to avert retribution by sowing discord among the powers. From Shanghai comes a report that the empress dowager and the court are moving to Hsian Fu (?), in the province of Shan Si, to which large stores of rice are being sent, and that, when these arrangements are completed, the remaining viceroys -will declare against foreigners. According to the Chefoo correspondent of The Daily Mail the fall of Tien Tsin has so disheartened the Chinese that they are seeking terms of peace. He says that several attempts have been made to send messages to Pekin, but so far without any known results and adds that rumors are again current that the Russians are reaching Pekin from the north. It Is impossible to confirm or deny these statements, but either one might explain China's efforts to gain time. Li Hung Chang's visit to Shanghai seems to be a complete failure. Except the Chinese customs officials no one has visited him. Sheng, the taotai. chief magistrate, gave the consuls a cordial invitation to meet him at luncheon, but all declined. The Shanghai correspondent of The Daily Express pretends to have authority for the assertion that Great Britain will repudiate any credentials Li Hung Chang may bring from the empress dowager, and he adds: "TRnssia. however, «s willing to mak° terms with Li Hung Chang, whose real mission is to sow dissension among the powers. The British. German and American representatives were resolute against receiving him." Th« Shanghai correspondent of The Daily Mali declares that the Chinese official* are thoroughly frightened by the fall of Tien Tsin and desire to open negotiations. "Ther*»for«." he continues, "aitaoogh all are aware of the horrible Pekin massacres, every official down to the Humblest retainer has been sworn to secrecy upon the penalty of wholesale executions should the details leak out. They hope, if toe powers once begin negotiations, to ·top the military- operatJoas, and that matters might cool down." There is the asnal crop of Shanghai rumors at hand this morning. One is that Prince Tuan has been abdocted asd that the empress dowager is again supreme. Another is that the notorious Rang Yl. president of the board of war, has been appointed viceroy of Canton. The Russian embassy at Berlin gives a partial iflough very cautious confirmation of the fact that the news from St. Petersburg has been carefully censored and that only sucb portions as favored the czar's plans were given out. Vice Admiral AlexieJT, Rus- trian naval commander in China, has received strict instructions on this Mint PARIS ; Very Few Amoricias Participated | Dewej's Denial Denounced by * ia the Final Events, Surrendered Filipino Genenl.

Cr*etl to I've HU Influence to Ead the Bloody Conflict. 'Washington. July 23.--President Me- Kinley has received what purports to be a direct appeal from the Chinese imperial government to use his good offices to extricate that government from the difficult and dangerous position in which it has been placed as a result^ol the Boxer uprising and the ensuing hostile attitude of the great powers Although the exact text of the appea made by the emperor of China tc France has not been made known here it is believed that the adrtre^ to the president is similar in terms to that communication. In our case" the communication was made through Minister \Vu to the state department. Thus far a final answer has not been returned. The French government,answered at once, but that answer wil not serve us. The United States government is conscientiously proceeding upon an entirely different line 01 policy in the treatment of the case Unfortunately, the state department finds itself alone in this, but nevertheless it is convinced that its plan i* the best, and it has behind it the consoling assurance that at present all of the European governments have tacitly admitted that an error was made in the beginning in not following the common sense advice of the United States naval commander at Taku. The point of difference between the state department and the European gOTernments is that the latter are proceeding upon the belief that all ot the foreign ministers and missionaries and guards at Pekln have been killed, and insist upon dealing with the Chinese government npon that basis, thereby assuming a hostile attitude that tend: to destroy the last chance of availing! of whatever friendly sentiment maj i ret exist among the powerful Chinese viceroys and the imperial government itself. Thus the French reply sets an impossible task for the imperial government in its present straits, and tends to drive it at once to make terms with the Boxers and Prince Tuan'a party. On the other hand our government, while not guaranteeing the truth of the advices from the Chinese government as to the safety of the foreign ministers, is willing to accept the statements temporarily, in the meantime remitting none of its efforts tc get access to Mr. Conger through the use of military force if need be. By following out this policy the state department argues that It retains twc chances instead of one. It may reach Mr. Conger with troops and it also may secure his deliverance through the friendly offices of some of the powerful Chinese officials. v,bich the powers are not likely to obtain for their own people by following out tneir prssent policy. It may be stated also that the United States government has not and does not intend to relinquish any par* of its claim for compensation ana reparation in the ultimate settlement- Its position In tbU respect. It holds, ·will not be affected unfavorably by prosecuting its efforts to make nsc of the friendly sentiments of the Chinese officials. With the exception of the brief dispatch from Admiral Kempff announcing that the Newark was going tc Nagasaki, there was nothing received to Washington yesterday regarding China, Several replies have been received at the state department in response to the secretary's dispatch to foreign governments urging co-operation, but they are withheld from publication at present.

The plants to be removed are now at SummitvHle. Greentown, Dunkirk, Marion and Albany, Ind. They will bring to this section over 3.000 workmen. The reasons given state that the supply of natural gas in Indiana is diminishing and cannot be depended upon, Pittsburg gas is better, and should it fail other fuel is of easy access, and the Ohio river provides unusual factilities for reaching the southern markets.

Gen. Agutnaldo, who wa» then at Singapore. I solicited through the American consul at Hong Kong.

My petition was favorably re- veUed unl 1 went with Mr. Andres Garchltorena, another Filipino, on ooard tlie Olympia in the Bay ot Hong Kong. "Once on board, the following Interview In French took place through the flag lieutenant. Mr. Brumby, acting as interpreter: "Filipino -- 'Admiral, having come to our knowledge that a war between your country and Spain Is imminent, we. who have fought the latter for our independence, are willing, In obedience to the desires manifested by you to Gen. Agulnaldo. through Mr. Wood, to take part in the war as allies of America, so long as it be carried on with the object of freeing from the yoke of Spain her colonies, giving them their independence.' "Admiral Dewey -- 'The American people, champions ot liberty, will undertake this war with the humanitarian object of freeing from the Spanish yoke the people^ under It. and will give you independence and freedom, as we have proclaimed to the world at large.' "Filipino -- 'We are very grateful tor this generous manifestation of the great American people, and being made through an admiral of their navy we value it more than a written. contract, and thereupon place ourselves at your entire disposal.' " Admiral Dewey-- 'I place at your disposal the ships of my fleet for the conveyance of both the Filipino leaders and the arms you may get Moreover, I think my government Is willing to supply you with arms and ammunition.' "Filipino -- 'We are very thankful to you for this new generosity of the American people, and you may be sure that we are ready to fight at your side for the independence of the Philippines, even without arms, as we have done during the recent revolution.' Admiral Dewey -- 'America is rich i» every respect; she h*« - territories sparsely inhabited. Besides, our constitution prevents "territory expansion' outside of America. Therefore the Filipinos may be sure of their independence. and not a bit of their land shall be taken from them.' " Fona-ht to the Death With Pitchfork* Aberdeen, S.
