faith of the Powers In Pekln Gov
ernment's Honesty
Admiral Kexnpff Reports to the Kary
Department Ills Seasons fur
flla Aetiona at Takn.-
WASHINGTON, July 2d. There
were no developments today lo war
rant the assumption that there was the
slightest improvement lu the Chinese
situation. Indeed, the general tenor
of such new as found the light, wan
to add to the steady growing doubt as
to the good faith of the Chinese Gov
ernment, as manifested in its acts.
Admiral KenipfTs letter, given publici
ty ; by the Navy Department today,
made the direct statement that the Im
perial authorities were in sympathy
with the'Hoxers, though he added that
the Government was afterwards para
lyzed and Incapable of controlling the
situation. This was the first official
declaration to reach our I Jovernuieut
contradictory of- the Chinese represent
ations that the Imperial Government
had steadfastly and front the first op
posed the Boxers movement and our
Government is Itouml to accept the
wurf of Its own officer until that Is
overcome by irrefutable evideuc.
The exchanges that are in -itonstant
jrogr-ss lH-twe-n the Poweits irv tend
ing more and more to cast a suspicion
upon the genuineness of many com
tmiuicatioiis that have came from Pe
kin through Chinese Governmental
sources. If it' should le finally estab-'
Jlshed that there has lKen aa attempt
on their part to practice a gigantic
fraud uiKin the world, that fact may
call for a change of attitude on the
part of the United States Government
toward China, This would not affect
that military policy already under way
but merely the 'technical relations be
ttveen the two Joverninents which
probably would closely approximate a
st p of formal war. .
Washington, July -H!. The Xavy Ie
pa i t meat lias made public the follow
ing additional chapter in Admiral
Kempfl's reiMu t:

I Lqmlon, July 27- All the Powers ap
pear to have received an Identical
appeal for mediation, but iu the ab
sence of definite news regarding the
fate of tlie Ministers, and of any reli
able indications of the real origin of
the appeal. It seems that-Lord: Siilis
bury cousldereil It was not even nec
essary to publish the fact that the ap
peal, had been received, or to do any
thing beyond formally acknowledging
It, with, perhaps, an intimation that
nothing could be done until the news
from Pekin had arrived.
It If could be ascertained beyond a
doubt that the reports of tlie massacre
at PekTn. were unfounded, and "there
is a disiositiou here to -beliere that
the Ministers may. after all. be held
as hostages. Lord Salisbury's jKillcy
would proliably t incline, more toward
tlie conciliation attributtnl to Waslilng:
ton. than to the revenge attributed to
Berlin. : But while there is no cessa
tion of the deluge, of rumors, it is
lieginnnlng to le liclieved at Shanghai,
Canton and other points, that the Vice
roys are as completely in the dark as
to the affairs in Pekin as the Euro
peans theraselves.
Meanwhile, the doings of LI Hung
Chang are regarded with. ever Increas
ing suspicion, while the situation In
the Southern provinces daily grows
worse. ' .; " '
With the; reiwrt that the allies will
