Washington, August 'JJI, Thocabinot
icssiou today jiractlcally openod tho
consideration of tho momentous quus
tlons growing out uf thu capturu of
Pokln and tho war in China. Until
today's hcion tho absorbing ciucstlon
has been tho Mifcty uf Minister Conger
aud thu legatiouers in Pekiu. Now,
how over, that has given place to prob
lems bf a nioio intrlcatu and far-reach-ing
character, touching tho existence
of tho Chineno empire and thu part
which thu American government is to
taku iu thu reconstruction of that couti-
Li Hung Cluing for thu upiKilutmcnt of
Minister Congdr or somu other commis
sioner to negotiate for thu cessation of
hostilities. Tlio decision arrived at
was to reject tlio appeal, and a reply
uf this character will bo i-oiit to Min
ister Wu, to bo forwarded to Li Hung
Chang. The moving causo for this
action is that this government is at
present very much in thu dark as to
whether there is any existing govern
ment in China. With thu capital in
tho Jiands of tho allies, thu tmipiror
and emptors dowager fugitives in hid
ing, aud tlio untiru governmental fahriu
paralyzed, thoro is no evidence of an
authority adequate tu conduct negotia

without knowledge of what is for its

ruler in (light, no mm seems to know if
anybody is directing its aO'airs. Ah
China is an absolute monarchy, with
out any uxuoutlvo branch, thu emperor
and empress dowager aio all-iMivvurful,
aud practically they am thu umpire of
China. Under the present remarkable
conditions, thu United States will act
witli extreme caution iu whatever
J steps it may take toward a solution of
tno ponding promoms
In tho meantime there is reason to
believe that tlio United States and all
thu other xiwors interested will keep
tliuir armed forces on tho ground, mi
that order may be maintained aud at
least a semblance of stable government
brought out of thu existing chaos.
