Allies Lost 1200 in a Severe
CHINESE TROOPS ARE RETREATING
Scene of Battle About IX or 13 allies
From Tlea Tain Diplomatic
WASHINGTON. Aug. G. The following
cablegrams have been received at the
"Che Poo, Aug. 6. Bureau of Naviga
tion, "Washington: There is a British re
port, unofficial, of an engagement at
Pelt Sang, Sunday morning, from 3 to
10:30. Allied loss In killed-and wounded,
1200, chiefly Russians and Japanese. Chi
nese are retreating. TAUSIG."
"Che Foo. Aug. 6. Bureau of Naviga
tion, "Washington; Official report, believed
reliable, says about '16,000 allies heavily
engaged the Chinese at Pelt Sang, day
light, 5th. HEJIET."
Pelt Sang Is the first railroad station
en route to Peldn. Taussig, who signed
the first dispatch, Is In command of the
Yorktown, which Is at Che Foo.
Interest In the Chinese situation
was intensified this morning by
tb receipt of two dispatches from
Naval officers at Che Foo. repeating
unofficial but apparently reliable reports
of active and extensive hostilities between
the allied forces and the Chinese on the
line between Tien Tsln and -Pekln. The.
a:epaicnes indicate unmistakably that the
relief column has -started in earnest, und.
that it is meeting with determined oppo
SJiion. Although neither of the naval
ditpjtches mentions the presence of Amer
ican troops in the reported engagement,
It is generally assumed at the War De
partment that at least a part of General,
vnaneos smau army took an active and
aggressive part In the affair.
According to the information in posses
sion of the "War Department, the town of
Pelt Sang is -at the head of tidewater on
the Pei Wo. between 11 and 12 miles by
road beyond Tien Tsln. It Is a village of
mud hulp of considerable size, but not
walled. The river at this point is not nav
igable by anything larger than a good
sized steam launch, and it is thought that
the troops probably reached there in small
boats towed by the naval launches. The
country along the river between Pekln
and Tien Tslnjls a low alluvial plain, al
most impassable for wheeled vehicles in
the wet season, and under quite a high
state of cultivation. It present no nat
ural defensive features, and the "War De
partment knows no strategic reason why
the Chinese &hould have made a stand
there, rather than at any other of the
dazen villages east of the .walled town of
Tung Chow, where is stored an immense
amount of provisions upon which the City
of Peldn would have to depend in case
of siege. I
From the fact that the engagement last
ed 7& hours, it is argued in the Depart
ment that either the Chinese must have
leen heavily entrenched or that there was
an lmense horde of them to so stubbornly
contest the advance of the 10,000 interna
tional troops. It is figured by military ex
perts that a loss of 1200 killed and wound
ed on the part of the allies probably
m,eans a loss of from three to six times
as many by the Chinese. It is possible
that a battle of tils magnitude may break
the resistance of the Chinese to the ad
vance of the foreign column, but, on the
other hand, it Is possible that this may
oe one of a large number of places on
the road that have been intrenched with
a -view to falling back and contesting
the foreign advance, so as to delay as
long as possible the arrival of the foreign
ers At Pekln. Unless the opposition sud
denly breaks down the military experts
look for a desperate engagement when the
troops reach the walled city of Tunc
Chow, which is said to be even more fa-1
vorably located for purposes of defense
than was Tien Tsln.
The position of the United States, dlplo
matical'y. remains unchanged. This Gov
ernment will not consent to the removal
pf the MInlstors and foreigners from Pe
kln until there Is free communication by
the powers with their Ministers. Nor
will this Government consent to communi
cate in plain language alone, but Insists
that cipher messages must pass freely
between Minister Conger and our State
Department. It is emphatically stated
that unless such messages are exchanged
the United States cannot know beyond
question that the mossages were not
garbled, and both this Government and
the Ministers misled.
There seems to be no doubt about the
safety of the Ministers at Pekln for the
present, and that they will remain where
they will be able to protect themselves,
iind will not be Induced to accept any of
fers of the Chinese Government to escort
them to Tien Tsln until they have had
communication with their governments.
Confidence is expressed, however, that
the Chinese Government will soon see the
necessity of accepting the terms laid down
In Secretary Hay's note to Consul Good
now. It is stated that if all the interna
tional forces in the vicinity of Taku can
be landed, and the supplies brought ip,
there Is sufficient force to overcome any
army Ahlch the Chinese may bring for-
-wara. to prevent the march on Pekin. It
nls-o is believed at the "War Department
that the Information received through the
tevy Department of a battle is correct
ALLIES IOT HARMONIOUS.
RusalartH and Germans Do Not Ap
prove the Plan of Camimljrn.
NEW YORK, Aug. 6. A dispatch to the
Tribune from London says: News from
China at midnight was a mass of contra
dictions and surmises. Tho most start
ling rumor In the air was the story that
U Hung Chang had committed suicide,
out It was discredited. It was consid
ered more probable that he was intrigu
ing with the Russian officials and striv
ing to break up the concert of the
Rumors that the nllled army had ad
vanced towards Pekin were varied with
the details of an eight hours' engage
ment with the Chinese, but this theory
elmmered down into a ikirmlsh a few
miles west of Tien Tsln, which had al
ready been reported.
There were persistent reports from Chi
nese sources that the allied commanders
Jaad disagreed on various points and could
not be Induced to order an advance upon
The capital. These differences of opinion
wcre probably exaggerated, but there was
probabb a substratum of truth for theso
Chinese Actions. The American. British
and Japanese commanders are described
as eager for a decisive action, whereas
the Russians and Germans do not con
sider the united column as strong enough
lor the work and assume that It will be
forced to retire to Tien Tsln if it starts
prematurely and inadequately supplied
"with food and ammunition.
The responsibility for Inaction Is sad
dled -upon every contingent except the
American column which, according to all
press accounts. Is pulsating with energy
and anxious to march to Pekln with tho
Jeat possible delay.
Two facts stand out among all these
rumors of dissensions On is the reluc
tance of the Chinese Viceroys and Im
perial officials to have the relief columns
set in motion and the other Is the im
practicability of having an armv con
ducted by a consulting board of six Gen
erals, or Admirals. Two sections of the
a'lled forces, the Russian mi the Ger
man, are believed to be hanjing back on
the ground that VJoe-Admlral Seymour's
mistake must not be repeated, and that
marching orders must Joe deferred until
the transport is la perfect order and the
troops are ready to go up to the capital
with an irresistible rush.
Chinese reports that Russia Insists upon
acting Independently and Is objecting to
an advance Tipon Pekin are not credited
with those who are watching the crisis,
more closely. Some commanders" are
more cautious than others, and the ur
gency of a relief expedition is an open
question when the legations are not un
der attack and? are probably receiving
supplies with the sanction or connivance
of the officials.
The powers must stand together to
the last in rescuing the Legations.
Some of the most astute students, of Chl
neseaffairs assert confidently that the Le
gations will be escorted to Tien Tsln as
soon as the Imperial authorities are con
vinced that Russia cannot be detached
from the campaign and that a relief col
umn will be dispatched to the capital.

GENERAL JULES VOLUNTEERS.
"War Department Denies His Appli
cation for Chinese Servico.
NEW YORK, Aug. C A special to the
.Herald irom Washington says:
It Is learned, on excellent authority,
that General Nelson A. Miles has recently
applied for servico in China. His appli
cation has not been granted. War De
partment officials say that General Chaf
fee was sent to China to command the
American troops, and to relieve him at
this time would be a reflection upon his
conduct of affairs.
Friends of General Miles say that Gen
eral Miles, in addition to his experience
and ability, has the rank to meet the
commanding officers of other troops upon
the same footing. They even go so far
as to assert that General Miles' reputa
tion would go far toward causing the
commanders of other columns to defer
to his Judgment, and the result would be
a more effective co-operation.
General Miles declines to discuss the at
titude of the War Department upon his
application, though he admitted that he
had Indicated his willingness to servo
in the far East. He thinks the situation
In China Is most serious, and. setting aside
all questions of his own wishes, he is
making every effort to equip General
Chaffee's command to stand the rigorous

Proposal in the Italian. Chamber ol
ROME, Aug; 6. The Chamber of Dep

draped with black. The president of the
chamber, Signor Villa, delivered a me
morial address eulogizing the late King.
The address was received amid signs of
deep mourning, although Its more ef
fective passages were frequently Inter
rupted with cries of "Long live the King."
Signor Villa then proceeded to read
dispatches addressed to him by the Presi
dents of foreign chambers, after which
he announced that several Deputies .had
made a number of proposals with tho
object of rendering special honor-to the
memory of the late King. Among these
he said were proposals that the cham

months, and that the Presidency should
present an address to the King and
Queen, and that the memory of tho de

an imperishable monument.
Signor Turati, Socialist, protested, In

today of his examination of the contents
of tho trunk' left here on May 17 by An

other source thai the police are working
upon a "clue contained In one of the let

April 23, at Ivrea, which Is near Turin,

the Dally Mail says this morning:
"In the first place, such headquarters
for outrage of anarchists, at Paterson,
N. J ought to be closely watched by
the European secret police, and full
papers of extradition should be granted
everywhere. It is impossible to note with
out regret that tho United States has
found Itself unable to surrender certain
men charged by the Italian police with
complicity in Bressl's deed."
