a View ot the Situation Through
TROUBLE WITH POWERS
China Perfectly Willing' to Do Any
thing- That tho Powers May Aprce
Upon, in Order to Secure Pence As
Far as Punishment Is Concerned,
China Has Bono All PossibleMr.
Conger Is Not Bloodthirsty In tho
Matter of Insisting' on Drnstlo
Measures at Pekin.
By Kicluir Wire from The A.oclild 1'rew.
Now York, May 5. Minister K. If.
Conger, who hiw lately returned to this
country, furnishes an. article on tho
Chinese situation, which will appear in
the coining number ot Leslie's "Weekly.
Mr. Conger says, in part:
"Unless matters have changed very
materially since i left China, six weeks
ago, the powers will roach sonic con
clusion hi regard to China, very soon.
Of course, it is difllcult for eleven men
to agree on anything, especially when
they have eleven governments with dif
ferent views behind them. China is
perfectly willing to do anything thuL
the powers agree on that is. anything
within her aibillty to accomplish. She
is only too anxious to expedite these
mutters and settle down to peaceful
pursuits again. Of course, the powers
must not. demand an Indemnity which
China, will be physically unable to
"It Is not certain that dually some
nation may not demand territory of
China, in lieu of a money indemnity. II
is perfectly certain that if any nation
docs make this demand the partition
of China will follow, and this will in
evitablycauso much dissension between
the powers. These difficulties and dis
putes would be lung In the settling and
would lead to terrible confusion in
"Russia has so fur mitigated her de
mands that there Is not now much
danger of sorlous diflieulty between
her and Japan. Personally I am very
much In favor of (he conllnueil exist
ence of China as an empire', governed
by her own einpeior. It. will save us
and all the rest, of the world lots of
I rouble if the integrity of the empire
As to Punishment.
"As far as the punishment of Chi
nese ollicinls goes. China, has already
done all that she could. Something our
of Ihe ordinary had to be demanded
by the powers, for It takes a. good
deal of punishment to Impress these
people, and tills was no ordinary r
feiise. In some cas'-s the olllcials
whose punishment was demanded were
more powerful than the government,
and then, of course, the punishment
could not be enforced. Kxcept In these
cases, everything was done as the pow
"At home T understand that I was
thought bloodthirsty, but in China I
was the most lenient of all the min
isters except one. AVe know tho con
ditions better than those who were
not there possibly could know them.
Drastic measures were demanded, but
I do not think we were, cruel. "What,
would seem a severe punishment to us
al home would not impress the Chi
nese at all, for the reason that they
tire accustomed to see so many cruel
and unusual punishments. The re
ports of cruelty on the part of sol
diers havo been grossly exaggerated,
though I am sum that there was plen
ty of cruelty on the part of individual
soldiers. As an army, tho allle.4 were
exceedingly well behaved. iNor were
the stories or unrestricted looting true,
in Pekln the soldiers took what they
needed, of course, just as he would
