-===- The French in China. THE PROPOSED EGYPTIAN CONFERENCE. —— ..i; i France and the Powers. -i [REUTER'S TELEGRAM.] PARTS, Tuesday.—At the council of ministers this morning General Lewal, the new Minister of war, laid before his colleagues his plans for the conduct of the campaign in Tonquin, and the organisation of the expeditionary corps, which is to be sent to join the French forces already there. In order that the operations may be brought to an end before the rainy season the reinforcements will start with the least possibla delay. Six thousand men will leave Algeria noxfe week, and a like number will be despatched in February. General Negrier is following up hi8 success, and hopes to reach Lang Son at the met of the week. A tabular statement respecting the health ot the French troops in Tonquin during the month of October, shows that 520 men were admitted to the hospitals, and 36 died. Nothing is known in official circles in London which would justify the persistent reports to the effect that France will shortly declare war against China. As a matter of fact it is believed no such declaration would be made without the previous presentation of a formal ultimatum to the Chinese Government, and the first news of such a step would almost certainly come from Shanghai.
