WASHINGTON, May 7. Papan
has withdrawn h11 objection to
the Chinese consortium und has pre
pared a communication accepting tho
terms aH agreed upon by tlio United
States, Great llritaln and Fiance, tlio
Mate department was Informed to
day by the American embassy at
The consortium will become ef
fective us noon as the signatures of
orflclals hnvo been affixed.
The acceptance of tho consortium
by Japan ends n two-) cur effort by
tho stato department to provide for
the financing of Clilna by represen
tative croups of bankers In each of
the four great countries. Japan has
contended that Manchuria and Mon.
golla nhould bo excluded from tho
operation of the consortium, claim
ing that It had predominant rights
In that territory because of prox
imity. The United States, however,
refused to agree to this exclusion.
The terms of tho consortium nro
general and each negotiation under
It will be taken up separately. Japan
will havq tho right to object to loans
for any work sho feels will Jeopard
ize her national life or vitally affect
her sovereignity. Under this head,
it is said, may be Included the con
struction of railways, in certain sec
tions of China, particularly Man
The amount of money to be loaned
under the consortium, has not been
estimated, but the ndvance soon of
,5,000,000 for railway and other
"construction and betterment is ex
pected. Under the terms of the consortium
all loans must be by (he banking
groups, which In the United Slates
includes H7 banks In all sections of
the pountry, must bo first approved
by ino stnlp iiepartment.
The bankers, after deciding on
each individual loan will submit to
the department the terms of contract
all documents bearing on It and .If
they arc approved, the loan then
may be made with the official
sanction of tho government behind
It. The same procedure will be fol
lowed In the other countries.
