DILL BE WAR
The Situation la China Is Rapidly
rCIEICN MINISTERS SIRROINDED

, SOU mm the Way.
LONDON, June 16. This is the sit
nation in China as it appears to the
Shanghai correspondent of the Daily
Express, cabling lastT evening: "It is
really a state of veiled war. The mem
bers of the foreign legations' in Pekin
are virtually prisoners,, and the Chinese
troops are only .restrained from attack
ing them by fear of the legation guards.
-'Meanwhile the ministers are alto
'. get her unable to communicate with the
commanders of the reliefcolumn, which
is making an enforced and isolated halt
between Tien Tsin and Pekin. The
walls of the capita! are guarded by 100,
000 imperial troops. The gates are
heavily "defended by : modern guns.
General Tung, acting under order trom
the Empress Dowager, says that no
more foreign troops shall enter the
sacred city.-- .'.-.:.
'On Monday the 'ministers sent a
demand to the Tsung Li Yamen that
the gates be opened, declaring that
otherwise the foreign troops would en
ter forcibly. :To this no reply .was
given. A second message went unan
swered. or had not been answered when
the latest news left Pekin. :
"Sir Claude Macdonald's latest mess
age says that the legations are capable
ot sustaining an effective defense un
less attacked in force." -
Russia, this correspondent asserts,
notwithstanding the assurances to the
contrary, sides with China. Some of
the foreign troops are already said to
be in the'envinons of Pekin, and the
attitude of the: Chinese troops is in
creasingly menacing. i -
"The streets of Pekin." continues the
correspondent of the Daily Express,
"are reported to be seething with anti
foreign mobs, clamoring tor the dv
struct km of the legations and the death
of the foreign ministers, j Even were
the Tsung Li Yamen disposed to re
strain the violence of the reactionaries,
it is . considered highly improbable,
rhat they would be able to hold them in
Icheck. For the foreign ministers' a
x orisis will arise when '.the relief comes
in sight of Pekin.
"It is still felt here, that the loreign
force is wholly inadequate to. battle
with the hordes of Chinese troops
:iia-sed , omide. tne, gates which now
include the imperial troops from ..Shi.i
sThe'Jisqtiieting element in the sitnar
,tion is the; ' fact that, although the
"Russo Chines telegraph line frgfin -Pete
i. via Kiakhta 4 Eastern Siberia) is
"working, the transmission of messages
is rigidly refused. , j '
- From Tien Tsin it is reported that
the foreign forces m the harbor will at
tack the Taku forts, and if necessary
bombard them. The International col
umn appears to ber still at Lang Fan,
-engaged in slowly repairing the Tail
way. . j ,
ANXIOUS FOR CONGER.
' Washington, June 15, rAt the cabinet
meeting today, much of the time was
" devoted to a discussion of the Chinese
situation. The severance of communi
cation with Pekin, and the failure to
hear from Minister Conger for sixty
hours, naturally creates considerable
anxiety. .-.-''. ,!. .-

ADMINISTRATION'S PLAN. '
r ' Washington, June . 15. Owing . to
their natural ' reluctance to employ
troops in China, save ara last resort,
and the disinclination of the. War De
partment to supply such troop except
under pressure, the otricials this after
noon were considering an alternative
1 proposition.; This . contemplated the
.putting out of commission of several
big ships attached to Admiral Remey
lUet, notably the Oregon, and the ad
'dition of sailors and marines so released
Ao Admiral KempfTs landing forces
The big ships carry on an average more
than. 300 men each.
evacuated their position during thi
night of June 12th. They had paid so
much attention to strengthening their
flanks, that thietr cerrtre was weakly held
and as soon ad this became evident, ui
June I h. I directed Gen-Ian Hamilton
to attack, die moved against uiamona
Hill wkh Suffolk, Derbyshires and City
Imperial volunteers, supported on the
left by the Guards brigade under Gen.
Jones. -r ': f
"It was grand, seeing the way our
men advanced over difficult ground, and
under hear rire. The casualties, I am
thankful try say. were less than 1 00, a
very small number considering the na
tural strength of the position which, had
to fee-earned. . ' '
fOur seizure of tDiamondf Hill caused
the Boers to feel they were practically
surrounded, and this resulted in their
hasty retirement. Jfamihon received a
contusion, from a ihrapnel bullet. in
the shoulder, but is not unable to per
form, his duty."
..General Baden-Powell with 800 men
is systematically re-4ablibing over, and
collecting arms and supplies in the
western Transvaau . About 600 Boers
have surrendered, and .Baden-Powell
captured 230 (prisoners. .

The majority of persons upon reaching .middle age and past

easily controlled in earlier life beein to affect the constitution.
Those: predisposed to Scrofula, Cancer, Rheumatism, Goat and cither hereditary troubles may escape
till then, but as they age the blood, so long tainted and weakened by accumulated waste matters, is no
longer able to properly nourish the body, and it becomes an easy mark fordisease. At this critical period

In the business of manufacturing elec

Washington Tinier This steam con
tains much of the heat of the furnaces
which ares fired to produce .it where it
s discharced into the air, -and is en
tirely available for steam heating pur
poses. In certain towns .in the west

Minnesota, where the winters are long
and severe, the electric light stations
have laid systems of underground pines
and have supplied steam heat and water
to citizens - through them. The expen-M

7000 or Atoo followers. Part of Christian
.Botha's force has halted at Paardekop
eighteen miles northwest of Volksrust.
The Boer parties are still near Volks
Tusit and .ire occasionally upon- , the
Jirkish pickets. The British govera
ment is considering M-hether a substan
tial force should not be sent to China
.from South Africa. It is thought un
officially, that Lord Roberts could spare
a brigade or two and the necessary
transports are now in South Afrian wat
ers." The command of the expedition,
it is said, would probably be given to
General Sir William 'Nicholson.

WILl MAKE IMPROVEMENTS.
Three was no particular significance
attached to the visit to Salem yesterday
f F, II. Page, of Portland, vice-president
of the Salem Light & Traction
Company, and J. U Howard, of San
Francisco, a member of the board of
directors of the London & San Fran
cisco bank, the new owners of the local
electric light and street railway plant.
Neither ot" the gentlemen would grant
any detailed interview, simply an
nouncing that very material improve
ments would be made in the equipment
of the company's power station and also
in the construction of the several miles
of road-bed in this city. Mr. Howard
left for San Francisco yesterday morn
ing and it is rumored that the San
Francisco firm may send as man to Sa
lent to personally manage , the affairs
of the company. The operation of the
plant at present costs approximately
$12,000 for fuel, an expense that is
largely, in fact, slmost entirely, respond
sible for the company's straitened cir
cumstances. It is understood the new
management proposes to dispense with
this enormous expense by the substitu
tion of water power for the present
steam arrangement. In view of the
contemplated change it is unofficially
reported that negotiations are, pending
for the leasing and possibly the , pur
chase, by the new .company, of the brick
mills on North Front street, where
splendid water power is available.. It
is further reported that in event 'the
Salem Flouring Mills Company dis
poses of its Front .street property soon,
it will begin work by July 1st. on " a
ne mill to occupy the site of the old
institution on Commercial street. If
the mill company should fail to unload
its Front street property, however, the
same report has it that no mill will be
built in Salem this year, that the com
pany will simply maintain a purchasing
agency at this point this year and build
at a subsequent date. ,
