Washington, August 25.—The import
ant developmemnt in the Chinese situ

government not to send any more
troops to China. All the trixipe at sea,
amounting to about 4.000, together
with those under orders for service in

amounting to alstut 3.000 more, will
be sent to Manila. These troops will
sail on the same route, and, upon
touching at Nagasaki, will go to Ma
nila. unless there are developments in
China not now expected which will
make their presence in that country
necessary. Secretary Boot said today
that no more troops were being sent
to China, liecause they were not needed.
With the arrival at Taku of the Han
cock, and the troops she carried, Gen
eral Chaffee, will have 5,900 available
men, which is deemed sufficient for all
present purposes. The decision of the
department waa not based upon any
recommendation made by General
Chaffee, but upon reports rceeived from
him, which made it apparent that no
more troops were needed.
The announcement of the diversion
of the troops was rnad.e in the following
bulletin, which was posted at the war
department this evening:
"The government has decided that
unless required by future develop-
ments, no more troop* are to be sent to
China, Orders bate accordingly been
