train bearing reinforcements of Aus
tralian troops left Pekln for Tien
Tsin at 10 o'clock this morning. One
French, an Italian and a German war
ship are outside tho bar. A dust
storm prevented Count von Walder
sce, who arrived here yesterday,
from proceeding for Pekln until this
morning. Ninety British marines ar
rived here last night from the Taku
forts to replace the Indian guards on
tho disputed land. In addition toho
Australians, outposts from the lines
of communication aro coming to be
ready In case of necessity. The Brit
ish are under armo to prevent the
settlement being rushed, but they do
not anticipate such extremes.
General Lome Campbell, the Eng
lish commander, and General Wog
ack, commanding tho Russians, met
Count von Waldersee upon his ar
rival here. Learning that both had
received Instructions from their gov
ernments, Count von Waldersee said
that It was useless for him to glvo
even an opinion regarding the mat
ters at Issue.
It Is the general feeling In Tien
Tsin that the trouble Is not likely to
reach a point where blood will be
shed. Both detachments on guard
havo orders to do nothing aggressive
unless forced to do so by tho other.
Cxcept the nrmy nnd camp followers,
tno oniy uussians now residing here
are the members of the consular staff,
two cierns and two Jews, who are
running stores, nnd who left Russia
in order to save their lives. These

the British concession to prevent the
soldiers from trespassing, and an Aus
tralian naval brigado Is preventing

hearing of the death of ex-President
Harrison, ordered all tho British flags
to be flown at half-mast.
Our Claim Against Morocco.
European Diplomats Watching the
Case With Interest.
NEW YORK, March 22. A special
to tho Herald from Washington says:
Tho European diplomats In Wash
ington nre deeply interested In tho
action of tho United States In send
ing the armored cruiser New York to
Morocco to aid the American consul-
general In exacting an apology and
obtaining, a settlement of claims ag
gregating $50,000. France's' Interest
Is probably greater than that of any
other country because It la no secret
that sho hopes some day to extend
her sovereignty over tho whole north
western coast of tho African conti
nent. France' requested tho United
States somo tlmo ago to denounce its
negotiations with Tunis, over which a
French protectorate had been estab
lished, and this would probably havo
been a step. In tho direction of hav
ing tho United States denounce Its
treatloa with Morocco, under which It
Is proceeding In domnnding tho set
tlement of claims. Tho United States
declined tho request. It Is treating
with Morocco as a sovereign power.
While no bomuardment of any
Moorish town is contemplated, tho
presonco of nn American man-of-war
Is expected to have a salutary effect
In obtaining Immediate compliance
with tho demands ot this government.
Tho New York will remain at Masar
gan until Consul General Gummere
returns from Marnkesh, and an
nounces a satisfactory settlement.
