HOLY WAR NOW FEARED.
Agitation in Mongolia Begun in July
Last Is Spreading.
ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 21.
It Is rather significant that, with
the success of the British expedition to
Tibet nnd the protest of Russia against
the BrltlBh-Tlbetan treaty, some of the
Russian papers suddenly have become
greatly disturbed over the Importance
of the Buddhist pilgrimage to Mouran
in February. According to Information
which has been drifting eastward from
the depths of Mongolia, the tiglta.t!on
for a holy war, noted at the time of
the pllgrlmago to Ourga in July last,
Agitation Is Spreading.
Wandering llamas are spreading the
agitation, not only among Buddhists in
Mongolia, but among the followers of
Buddha in the Altai regions of central
China, among the Russian Burlats and
even beyond the Siberian borders and
in India. According to reports al Ourga,
there is a general agitation among the
Buddhists In favor of freeing ' them
selves from the domination of China,
some of them favoring the removal of
the Dalai Llama to northern Mongolia
and entering on a holy war for the es
tablishment of a Buddhist kingdom,
while others advocate appealing for the
protection of Russia.
Effect of Expedition.
What effect the British expedition and
the deposition of the Dalai Llama will
have on the movement Is the subject of
much speculation. The Journal de St.
Petersburg says It is very possible that
the February pilgrimage may compel
Russia to attach serious attention to
"We may expect developments of tho
greatest importance." the paper adds,
"and should be prepared for anv eventuality."
