NIGHT ATTACK The foreign colonle* of Tienstin were endangered when former Chinese soldiers, heavily armed, swept through the city In the darkness of early morning, and made a prolonged attack on the native police station, the railway station, and the governor's headquarters. American troops, In company with forces from the Italian and French garrison, and aided by three companies of Chinese, were called out to protect the foreign quarters.
