Russia with the desired pretext to land

this afternoon that the government is
resolved, if the dangerous situation in
China continues, to take immediate
military action to repress the anti

action of the powers, may be regarded
as a semi official utterance, meaning
that if there is any hesitancy on the
part of the powers Russia will act
All reports agree that the Boxer
movement is spreading:. The report is
confirmed that the French agents at
Mong Tse and Yun Nan Fu have been
compelled to retire, and this shows that
the ferment has reached Southwestern
China and has provoked France into
taking active steps. .
: Secret Sympathy With Boxers.
Sir Claude MacDonald, British min
ister at Pekin, has .wired the British
consul at Shanghai confirming the re
ported outrages and the fact that the
throne and government have been
actuated by a secret sympathy with
the Boxer movement, which the gov
ernment has ample power to suppress
if it so desired. His dispatch, how
ever, is in no way of an alarmist na
ture. The latest Tie j Tsin dispatches say
ing that the Dowager Empress has ap
pointed anti-foreign generals with the
pretended mission to suppress the
Boxers makes it impossible to doubt
that the time has arrived for energetic
It is expected that the British gov
ernment will utilize the Chinese regi
ment which has been in training at
Wei Hal Wei. as it would be danger
ous to remove the garrison from Hong
Kong at the present moment.
A special from Shanghai says: "The
Tsung Li Yamen has protested to the
ministers against the presence of such
a large number of foreign forces, as
serting that it cannot be only for the
protection of the legations, but for the
establishment of a garrison in the cap
ital of an independent friendly state.
The answer which the foreign minis

TO REINFORCE KEMPFF.
daoboat Nashville Ordered from Cavite
to laka The Castloe and York
town Also Available.
By Cable to the Morning Star.
Washington, June 9. Admiral
Remey informs the Navy Department
that the gunboat Nashville, with a
force of marines aboard, left Cavile
yesterday for Taku. She is a light
draft gunboat of the same type as the
Helena and it is presumed that she is
sent in place of the latter.
The Monocacyi at Shanghai, has also
been ordered to join Admiral Kempff
It is understood at the Navy Depart
ment that the Nashville was dispatched
to Taku by Admiral Remey in place
of the Helena, which was originally
selected for that purpose, but was
probably unavailable, or absent from
Manila. She should be at Taku about
the latter part of next week.
In view of the length of time re
quired by the Nashville to make the
trip to Taku, it is fortunate that the
Navy Department has other reinforce
ments at hand in the shape of vessels
at Shanghai. This force is only about
three days distant from Taku, and
only about half the time would be
required for the vessels at Shanghai
to make the trip to Tien Tsin that
would be consumed by the Nashville.
The Navy Department has sent in
struction to the commander of the
Monocacy, at Shanghai, to report to
Admiral Kempff at Taku, and that
vessel is already on her way. Though
an old ship, the Monocacy is admirably
adapted to this kind of service,
drawing only nine feet, of water and
carrying a very good secondary bat
tery. Her personnel is twelve officers
and 146 men. The Castine and York
town also are at Shanghai and can be
drawn upon, according to Admiral
Remey's dispatch, by Admiral Kempff
if he wants more men. These vessels
are of 1000 and 1700 tons displacement
respectively. The Castine's personnel
is 11 officers and 142 men, the York
town's 14 officers and 181 men.
Minister Conger's daily report was
even less encouraging than usual. In
his cablegram to Secretary Hay to-day
he said that the situation was unim
proved; that the burning of plants
continues and owing to the" inertness
of the Chinese troops it will be neces
sary to employ foreign troops to pro
tect the railways.
. If the State Department has not
deemed it necessary to send any
specific authorization to Mr. Conger to
employ United States naval forces at
Tien Tsin and Pekin in guarding the
Chinese railways, he is free toexer
cise his own discretion in that respect.
The State Department officials felt
that the action taken by the Navy De
partment in the dispatch of naval ves
tels to the scene of trouble and the
landing of naval forces, represents all
that can be done, or at least all that
should be done, by the United States
at this moment. The department re
mains unshaken in its attitude and
while willing to work on lines with
the other powers to restore peace in
China, insists on retaining its inde
pendence of action.

The Grave Situation of Affairs
in China Monopolizes Atten
tion of the World.
DOUBLE DUEL FOR SUPREMACY
Between Russia and England and Russia
and Japan Sympathy of France Is
With Russia Attitude of the
United States Watched.
Copyrighted 1900 by the Associated Pres3 J
Paris, June 9. The grave situation
in China which has developed this
week monopolizes the attention of the
world and has thrown a shadow over
questions of minor i nterest, even
including the Transvaal.
Paris and its politicians admit the
condition of affairs around Pekin, and
apprehensions are expressed least it
lead to international complications.
The greatest element of danger in
the situation is generally felt to be the
double duel for supremacy proceeding
between Russia, and England and
Kussia and Japan. The sympathies of
Frenchmen are naturally with their
ally, Russia. It is not thought that
England is likely at the present mo
ment, when her hands are fully occu
pied with South Africa, to take any
steps to produce an Anglo Russian
The action of the United States is
acknowledged to be most important in
the situation, and advices from Wash
ington are closely followed here. Her
friendly relations with both Kussia
and England favor the impression that
she will, if compelled by the force
of events, reluctantly join Japan and
The following statement is fur
nished the Associated Press by a rep
resentative of the Foreign Office, ex
pressing the views of the French go -eminent.
"The situation is undoubtedly very
serious and unless the Chinese govern
ment rouses itself to a thorough ap
preciation of the dangers threatening
its very existenoe at the present mo
ment, it is difficult to foresee what will
be the outcome. Our cables advices
leave the condition of affairs still
somewhat obscure, but it is evident
that the Pekin government must act
promptly and vigorously if it is to
stamp out this rebellion. Despite the
stories of defeat of,the Chinese troops,
we still think the army suffi
ciently strong ' to suppress the in
surrection; but it must act at once.
In the meantime we ? intend to co
operate with the other powers in
taking such measures as are necessary
to safeguard our countrymen and their
properties. Our minister and admiral
have been instructed to take this
course. Our interests are identical
with those of the United States, and
there is every reason to believe that
we shall act in unison during the
present crisis. The aim of both is to
act purely in defence of the lives and
interests of our compatriots which are
now in such peril.
"We hope the fears expressed by
the press of the various countries re
garding the probability of interna
tional complications will not be real
ized. The one thing to be feared ap
pears to be friction between Japan and
Russia, but we think the Japanese
government is too wise to put itself
against the might of the Russian Em
pire. Japan is certainly very strong
on the sea, but on land it is quite a
different matter. We are hopeful that
the trouble will blow oyer through
resolute action on the part of the
