Mr. Conger to Mr. Hay.


(Mr. Conger reports that notwithstanding his protests all territory at Tientsin available for concessions, except a small tract formerly the United States concession, has been seized by other powers, and that he has instructed the United States consul to serve notice that that tract must be left for part of an international settlement or a United States concession, which will be demanded when order is restored, and that the United States will not recognize seizure or adverse occupation.)
