CHINA. I THE IMPERIAL COURT.—COUNT I WALDERSEE'S RETURN. An edict has been published announcing that, owing to the hot weather and the advanced age of the Dowager-Empress, the return of the Court to Pekin has been postponed until September 1. Count von Waldersee arrived at Kobe, Japan, on Saturday, and left on Sunday morning for Tokio. ANOTHER CHINESE RUSE. I The Times Shanghai correspondent says it is believed that the recent edict respecting the return of the Court to Pekin is merely intended to hoodwink the Powers in order to secure evacua- tion. The Times Berlin correspondent states that the strength of the German troops which will remain in China is officially given at 3600, of whom 800 are intended to garrison Shanghai. THE INDEMNITY.—IMPORTANCE OF SHANGHAI. The Foreign Ministers held a meeting at Pekin oia Tuesday. The majority were in favour of accepting China's offer to pay 450,000,000 taels, but there was considerable discussion as to how the four per cent. could be collected. Mr. Rock- hill will submit at the next meeting the American proposal to refer the question of indemnity to the Hague Arbitration Court. Admiral Sir E. Sey- mour, who is relinquishing the command of the British Squadron, at a dinner of the China Asso- ciation, dwelt on the importance of Shanghai and the necessity for its defence in order to preserve the prestige of foreign nations in the eyes of the Chinese.
