There is No Hope tor the Foreigners and
All Foreign Consuls Have Cabled
that Disturbances Are Spreading
i,ivno'. Julv C. There is a mass of
wild minor from the far Eiet. Thougt
contradictory on most points, it
continues unanimous as to tbe conbu.u
matiou of tbe tragedy at Fekin.
To consistent reports ot tbe whites are
nnur added tbe additional .horrors
fht tavatie soldiery butchered at the
cipiul 5000 native?, Roman Catholic
converts. This comes on a Shanghai
diepatch of July 5, which only adds to
the report given by respectable Chinese
who have arrived from Chaln-Fu, and
who describe Pek in as an inferno, tbe
streets literally running with blood.
They confirm numeroos stories of
executions and untold tortures Indicted
cn isolated foreigners and European
soldiers captured ly the mob. Tbe
autnoritv of Yung Lu, the Chineee
Imperial Treasurer, who advocated
moderation, was completely effaced by
Piince Tuan Kang Yi and Tnng Fub
Sian.who issued freeh edicts ordering
the merciless extermination of all
foreigners in tbe empire.
Washington, July 6 A dispatch has
been received at tbe state department
from Consul-General Goodnow at
Shanghai, dated July 5. in which be
says the situation is serious and the in
surrectionary movement is spreading. If
the allied forces, he said, should meet
with reverses tbe insurrection will
certainly spread to central and southern
China resulting in the expulsion and
murder of foreigners in tbe interior and
the ruin of trade. A strong force, he
save, is necessary to check the viceroys
in the north and to support li.e viceroys
in the snath.
It is understood that all consuls of the
powers In China hive sent identical dis
patches to their respective governments.
London, July 6 In response to in
quiries cabled to .Shanghai in regard to
tie situation at Pekin, the following
cablegram has been received from an
Shanghai, Thursday, July 5. Prepare
to hear the worst."
London, July 6 Thedanger of a gen
eral revolt in China becomes nx re and
more patent, and Europe is being con
fronted with rapidly increasing force
with the fad that not merely the inter
national col mo n may he forced from
Tien Tin, but thtt the International
troops of colonics and treaty ports will
stand in grave danger of expulsion. In
view of the fact ttiat the previous as
surance of the vicer ys have proved on
trustworthy, their promises of protection
fir tbe whites are hardly convincing.

the democrats seem to take a very hope
ful view of the outcome oi the campaign,
in anticipation of the expected fusion of

signs of discouragement at republican

mitted that the fight is to be a iiard one

a close fight, but bank their reliance on

many republican papers of the country

At tho hcndqUArtcrs of the democratic
congressional committee today all was
bright and expectant. It was prophesied
on every bund that Brjanand Stevenson
would sweep the country in November,
but this free expression of confidence
among the democrats has not shaken in
the slightest degree the confidence of the
republicans in McKinley and Roosevelt.

courtesy exhibited by the Japanese
Government in allowing the Oregon to
use the dock, which is owned by the
government, is much appeciateJ by tbe
