The two-day battle began on MaYah

sian and Japanese troops clashed at
Nikolaevsk, a city located at the
1 mouth of the Amur river on March 115,
the Russians reporting their losses, as
being forty killed and eighty wounded.
Belief is expressed here that this en
counter may spread a guerilla warfare
through all eastern Siberia if the Jap
anese do not evacuate the country.
Announcement by the Japanese com
mand here would seem to indicate a
change in the policy tollowed by thac
country. In the past the Japanes-e
have beon assisting Czech forces here
but in future they will devote their
'efforts to safeguarding Japan's special
position in Manchuria and Mongolia.
Evacuation of Siberia by the Japa
nese will not be started, It is under
stood, until the soviet government at
Moscow reaches some form of agree
ment with Japnn. The local .provision
al government has handed protests lo
the Japanese command regarding in
tervention in eastern Siberia and the
latter has concentrated its forces

, The railroad to Chita, . where the!

When this is accomplished, all anii-i
revolutionary forces will be eliminated
