The Chinese army has been driven from Peking, the Empress and her co-conspirators have fled, the order is cut for the punishment of the most guilty and the sacred city, we are told, is well patrolled by the foreign soldiers. All true, but those who have lived in Peking know that within a year, unless certain measures are taken, officers and men will discover a deadlier foe than the Empress Dowager's imperial troops, and the death-roll will be longer than it was after the taking of Fort Taku and Tien-Tsin.
