AU Russia Aroused.
New York Evening Sun.
The Czar's determination to raise
a second great army for service in
Manchutia amounts to a guaranty of
peace in Europe during the contin
innce of the war in the far east. Rus
sia will not allow any differences of I

ti..n with a western power. All he
thergies are to be concentrated on
the tremendous task of coping with
the Asiatic nation that may be called t
in a military sense. the England of'
the east on the sea and the germany
of the east on land. The Cvar, in
his letter summoning General Grip- z
vnberg to coimand the second Man- c
cbi ia army, recognizes the "high t
%vrfike qualities of Japan" and admite I
flie necessity of heroic measures to t
term:nate the war.
It is no longer a contest to main- C
tain the prestige of Russia in Asia

sia in the ranks of the great powers. h
Not even a war with Germany would1
have put a severer tax on her re- f
sources. The Czar proposes to pour
300,000 additional troops into Man- t
churia and to stake the last soldier
of the empire on the desperate enter
prise in turning the tide of war.
The military problem will become c
one of feeding 6o,ooo men and sup- e

less it can be solved their numbers c
will be an embarassment to General P
