THE LEADER GUTIEIE OKLABOMA
Wants the Matter Left Open a
WASHINGTON' AUGUST 3. -Another '
move was made today In the diplomatic
situation by tho roturn of an evasive ana- '
war by LI Hunp Chang to Secretary
Hay's peremptory demand of August 1 to
be put In communcatlon with tho foreign
officials at Pekln. Li's answer Is not
final and leaves the matter open to dip-
lomacy but Li's action as reported by
Consul Goneral Goodnow Is unquestion
ably sincere and wll amount to a final re- I
Jectlon of the American proposition If
Mr. Goodnow'fl dispatch contains some
further Information bearing on the ques-
tion of the rosponslbllly for Pekln condi-
tion In tho statement that the command-
er of the Chlnose troops ordered the l'ao
Ting massacre. It Is learned however
that LI Ping Hong the commander Is
wol known to nil Chinese officials a on-
Of tho most rabid nntl-foreign leaders
In China. He is a cloeo friend of Prince
Tuan and tho association of thew two
in Pokln affairs with the power behind
them to cause the Ignomlnous death of
two high officials is regarded bc a bad
Simultaeously with Sir. Goodnow's dis-
patch came a characteristically diplomat-
ic message from Yuan Shi Kal the gov-
ernor of Shan Tung repeating the story
o ftwo dnys ngo that the Chlnose govern-
ment was arranging to deliver the min-
isters safe at Tien Tsln. No reference la
made to reconcile thnt statement with
Earl Li's refusal to alow communication
with tho ministers.
General Chaffee's message as to the un-
expected resistance offered to the Chi-
nese recorinatsanco is regarded by mili-
tary men hore as forecasting a greater
degree of opposition to tho international
advance than had been anticipated and
thoy are now satisfied tho Chlneso troops
will furnish material for at least onese-
vero battle bofore the way Is clear to
It appears that some misunderstanding
exists as to a St. Petersburg dlspateh
printed here this morning saying the Chi-
nese minister there and his colleagues
in Europe had cabled tho governor of
Shan Tung lemandlng that free com-
munication be opened between the Pekln
ministers and tholr respective govern-
ments. This communication was in fact
a Joint memorial to the throne concurred
In by nl Chinese ministers abroad In-
cluding Minister Wu in Washington. It
was forwarded by Minister Yeng Lu at
St. Petersburg because the latter Is the
thmn of the Chinese diplomatic service. It
was transmitted through the governor of
Shan Tung to be forwarded to Pekln.
This action is considered very important
as Indicating that tho Chinese ministers
nbroad have at last reached a unanimous
conclusion that the situation Is no long-
er to be trifled with. Their action may
be regarded as a final effort on their pari.
to Influence the government and Its out-
come is awaited with great Interest.
Meanwhile the government o fthe Unit-
ed States has not abandoned Its efforts
to establish communication with Its min-
isters at Pekln and tho state department
has instructed Consul Goodnow at Shan
ghai and Consul Ragsdale at Tien Tsln
to spare no effort or expense to open up
direct communication with Mr. Conger
In adltlon to his short message relative
to the Japanese check transportation
throug hAdmlral Remey General Chaffee
made another and direct cable report this
The message was withhold from publi-
cation by Secrelaary Root who declined
to make Its purports public. It was pre-
sumably devoted to a recital of General
Chaffee's needs ln a military way
In view of tho London statemont that
the advance on Pekln actually began with
the nrosont week thero Is also posslbl
ity that General Chaffee's mesHngo has
some bearing on that subject though
it is thought tho advance If started could
not have progressed far beyond Tien Tain
as tho outpost as far as described by him
took place only ten miles out of town.
Tho operations of tho American forcos
In China are seriously handicapped by
the dolay In the landing of tho cavalry
horses owing to tho lack of lighters and
other small craft. Two squadrons of tho
sixth cavalry arrived at Taku on tho
Grant several days ago but ln tho nb
sonoe of their mounts linvo been of no
ifurthor service than regular foot troops

j Hpt-ech to be made at Indianapolis next
' Wednesday in accepting the democratic
nomination for tho presidency. He spent
almost the entire day in this work. The
speech Is about 8000 words in length. He
hns adhered to his original intention of
devoting tho document almost entirely to
tho question of Imperialism. In follow-
lng this courso he pursues the geneif 1
I plan adopted in 1S9C of giving especial
attention to the subject made paramount
by tho democratic platform. For this rea-

territory will this year be given the place
of prominence which was nlloted to tho

caping thanks to his valor as a soldier

Trade conditions still favor the buy-
