note lo be addroiwd to the government
of China, ai agreed upon by the repre
entaiiveof the eo-oerating power at
iVkln D-rember 4, 1'JOO, and subae
(jtifiitly aniended Ix-fore tlgning.
During the monthi of May, June, Jaly
i and Augiiat of the correnl yearaeriouf
i dial urbance broke out In the northern
j province! of China in which atrociom
; crime nnparalled In hiatory and out
1 rage agilnat the law of nations, agaioat
j the law of humanity, and againat ciyili-
tatlon, were committed under particu
i larly txlioua ciicumitancea. The princi
j pal of theae crime were the following:
I Firm On the 2Uth of June hi excel-1
I lenry, Itaron Yon Ketteler, while oo lii
way to Tanng li Yamuo, in the perfor
mance of hi olhcial function, wa iinif
df red by aoldiera of the regular army,
! acting under orders of the chiefs.
I Second On the eame day the forcing
legations 'were attacked and beaieited.
The attacks continued without intermis
sion until the 14ih of Auguat, on which
date the arrival of the foreign troops put
an end to them. These attacks were
Diade by the regular trooe, who joined
the Boxers and who obeyed the order
of the court emanating from the Imperial
palace. At the same time the Chinese
government officially declared, by its rep
reaentatives abroad, that it guaranteed
Ibe security of the legations.
Third On the 11th of June Mr Sujiya
ma, chancellor of the legation uf Japan,
while in the dim-barge of an official mis
sion, was killed by renulars at the gates
of the city. In IVkin and in several
provinces foreigners were murdered,
tortured or attacked by Boxera and regu
lar troops, and such as escaped death
owed their salvation solely to their own
determined resistance. Their establish
ments were looted and destroyed.
Fourth Foreign cemeteries, at 1'ekin
especially, were desecrated, the graves
opened, and the remains scattered broad
cast. These occurences necessarily led the
foreign powers to dispatch their troopa
to China to the end of protecting the
lives of their representatives and that
national order be restored During the
march to Pekin the allied forces met
with resistance from the Chinese army
and bad to overcome it by force.
Inasmuch as China has renounced her
responsibility, expressed regret ard
evinced a desire to put to an end the sit
uation created by the aforesaid disturb
ances, the powers have determined to ac
cede to her request upon the irrevocable
conditions enumerated below, which
ther deem iudiepensible, to expiate the
