CHINESE WAR A PROBABILITY faith of the Powers In Pekln Gov ernment's Honesty MAS RECEIVED A SERIOUS SHOCK 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. .

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.
