No American ship could be bought at
any reasonable price, and when i*. came
to building ships, it was found, accord

he can buy two 2,600-ton ships in Eu

High Words of Praise for Condition
of Chinese Government.
San Francisco, May 16.— E. H. Con
ger, ex-American minister to China,
who was recently appointed ambassador
to Mexico, arrived today on the steam
er Siberia, from the Orient.
Conger accompanied him.
It is Mr.
Conger’ s intention to proceed almost
inune«liately to the City of Mexico, un
less he receives orders to the contrary.
Mr. Conger said that diplomatic mat
ters in China are in a satisfactory con
dition. To a question as to China’s
neutrality in the Russo-Japanese war,
“ China has always been disposed to
maintain the strictest neutrality be
tween the warring nations, and, al
though there has been considerable
criticism from both Japanese and Rus
sian sources, I believe that the Chinese
government has never shown partiality
one way or the other, but has alwayB
adhered strictly to the requirements
of the international law.”
Mr. Conger was asked concerning the
periodic rumors of Boxer uprisings and
"There is absolutely no truth in such
rep<irts. There is no danger of another

occasional troubles in the interior, hut

There is no organized
