As Lord Salisbury was ubscnt. tho visit was with out special result, but its importance may bo gathered from a n interview w i t h tho secretary of tho Ohiuoso logation, S i r H a l l i d a y Macartney, i n which t h o legation officials seem to havo a s - sumcd at l a s t something like personal responsibility, Sh?

WASHINGTON , July 23. — President MeKinloy has received what purports to bo a n appeal from tho Chinese imperial government t o IIBO h i s good ofiiccs to extrioato t h a t govornmont from tho difficult position in w h i c h it has boon placod as a rosult of tho Boxer uprising i and ensuing hostilo n t t i t u do of tho great powors. Although tho exact text of t ho appeal made b y tho emperor of China to Franco, as outliuod in tho cablo dispatches of Saturday, has not boon made known, i t i s k n o w n t h a t tho address to tho president i s similar i u tcrmn to t h at communicated. Iu our case tho communication was m a d e through Minister Wu to t ho s t a to department. Thus f ar a final answer 1ms. not boon returned. Tho French govorumout answorcd at onco, b u t t h a t answer will not serve u s . Tho United Statos government is pro" ceoding upon a u ontiroly different Hue of policy in t h o troatuiout of tho case. Unfortunately tho stato department finds itself alone i n this, but novcrtho less it is convinced that its' plan is tho best and It has beh i n d it tho consolidated nssuranco t h a t nt present all of tho European gov omuients havo tacitly admitted that an error was mado iu tho beginning iu not followin'g tho common sonso advice of t h e United Slates naval commander at Tnku. The point of difforouco betweon t h e stnlo dopnrlinout and t ho Europoan governments is t h a t the latter aro proceeding upon the beliof that all t ho for eign ministers and missionaries at ~ k i n g have been killod a n d insist upon dealing with the Chinese situation ou t h a t basis, thereby assuming a hostilo a t t i t u d o that tends to destroy tho lust ehauco of availing of whatever friendly sentiment may yot oxist among tho poworful Ohiuoso vicoroys a n d tho imperial govornmont itself. Thus, tho Frouch reply sots an itupossiblo t a s k for tho imperial govornmont iu i t s prosont s t r a i t s a n d tends to drivo i t a t onco to mako terms w i t h tho Boxers ami Prince T u a n ' s party. On tho other hand our government, while not g u a r a n t e e i n g tho t r u t h of tho advices from tho Chinese government as to t h e safety of tho foroign ministers, i s willing to accept tho statements temporarily, in tho mciiutiiiio remitting nono of its efforts to get. access to Mr. Conger through tho use of military forco if nood bo. By following out this policy tho s t a t e department argues that it has two chances instead of one. It may roach Mr. Conger with troops and i t also may socuro his delivorauoo through tho friondly olllcos of somo of tho powerful Ohineso ofllclals,! which tho powers aro n o t likely to obtain for t h e i r own pooplo by following out thoir present policy. l u D i i r n e n t s K i l l e d , W h i le A m e r i c a n s Was S m a l l .
