"August 12, tha Tseng li Yamun
requested a conference witb a view to

however, and that night we endured
tbe longest fusillade of the whole siege,
lt lasted 12 hours. August 13 th
Tsung li Yamun begged to be excused
from any conference, saying that tbe
members were too busy. Later they
wrote that they bad forbidden firing ou
us and would court-martial any wbc
di?obeyed. During the evening many
shells fell in the legation grounds."
Tbe Daily Chronicle publishes as
interview with the Japanese minister
in London, which lepresenta him at
having said:
"The empress is the heart and soul
of China. As long aa she lives, so long
as she remains in China, whether the
supreme power is taken from her oi
not, she will always be tbe greatest
force, the one above all others to b
reckoned witb. Tbe difficulty will be
to get any one who can speak for her.
I fear that tba power must come to a
final understanding quickly. Riots,
anarchy, bloodshed and misery through
out China will be the inevitable result
of the policy that doe not immediately
disclose itself. The government must
be re-established."
Tbe Jaapneae envoy expressed hit
approval of the reported American sug
gestion regarding a conference of tbt
powers and said he believed that satis
factory pecuniary compensation could

revenues are pledged.

Xxpeetcd to Encounter Tha a
Several Oaya Ago.
Washington, August 28. A dispatch
received at the Japanese legation today
from the foreign office of Japun, con
veying the latent and most authentic
information of tbe situation in and
around Pekin. In a measure the ad
vices were of a disquieting nature as
they indicated that tbe Cninette bad
rallied their forces and weie preparing
for an attack upon tbe allies in I'ekin.
If it should prove that tiie allied forces
were besieged in Pekin it would ac
count for tbe lack of advices from Geu
eial Chaffee. Aa made public by Min
ister Takahira the dispatch from tht
Japanese foreign office at Tokio is as
follows: '
"An official telegram, dated Pekin,
August 18, was received at Toll.) from
General Yamaguchi, commander ( the
Japanese forces, to the following effect:
'Tbe capital is now entirely cleared of
the enemy. A cavalry regiment which
had been sent to Wan Shau Shan
(where tha empress dowager's palace
is located), reports that the imperial
family, wbo bad left Pekin August 14,
started, after a short rest at Wan Shau
Shan for tha west, and were tinder the
escort of General Maa and his troops,
oonsieting of only about 600 horsemen
and 20 carts. Tbe Japanese forces oc
cupied the treasury department, in
which Over 2,000,000 taels in silver
and a large quantity of rice were
"Another telegraphio dispatch, dated
Takn, August 23, states that aa tbe
Chinese troops and Boxers, who bad
gathered at Nan Yuen, were about to
attack the foreign forces at Pekin, Ja
panose and Russian cavalry were ex
pected to encounter them on the 20th.
Tbe dispatch further states that Chi
nese infantry, 9,000 strong, with 15
guns, are advancing from Shan lung
to make rear attack on the allies."
A copy of tbe dispatch was transmit
ted to Acting; Secretary Adee, at the
department of state and by him fur
nished to tba president. While the
news of a possible rear attack upon tbe
comparatively small force of the allies
was not received with surpiiee, gener
ally, it was not regarded aa serious, as
tbe foreign forces are believed to be
abundantly able to take care of them
selves against any force of Chinese
likely to ba aent againit them.
Three Men Found Pariahlng Boennao ot

El Paeo, Texaa, August 28. Three
men, who had almost perished from
thirst, have been found in the desert
near the Coleran church, 60 miles

Chicago, August 27. Unless the
plsns of tbe leaders miscarry avery un
ion man connected with the Building
Trades Council will be called out on a
strike before Labor Day.
The plumoers have already been or
dered out and the intention ia that all
other uniona whose men ara working
sha!l follow suit. Owing to increased
activity in tha building trades within
the last few days, many union men
have been put to work, in soma places
witb the consent of tbe business agents,
and it is fee purpose of the uniona to
ttop the work wherever the bosses be
lieved they had won a victory and
show them that tha labor organizations
are still in the fightv Tha business
sgent of one of tha largest uniona said:
"Contractor have coma to believe
that it ia comparatively easy sailing for
them now, and accordingly have been
andertaikng soma large joba with tha
idea that there would be no further
trouble from the unions. Tbey will
find to their disgust that many of the
men whom they supposed to be non
onion men bava become members of tba
onions and they will sipmly ba unable
to do any work. It ia the only thing
that ia left the cuions unless they pro
pose to give up their fight. Tha idea
3f helping the contractors along their
jobs has been a mistake which is gen
erally recognized now and they will
9nd there is a lot of fight left among
the men yet."
