Status of the raee Negotiations Not Es.
tirely Satisfactory, and What Their Ont

Predicted No Let-Cp In the Vr Cntll
Treaty of Peace Is Signed.
Sax Francisco, Jan. 8. K. Kato, the
newly appointed Japanese minister to
Great Britain, has arrived from Japan on
the steamer China. Kato is one of the
most distinguished and able diplomats In
the Japanese service. He has lately been
head minister of the bureau of polities in
the department of foreign affairs in Tokio
the position lately filled by Kurino until
his appointment to the olliue of minister
to the United States. He will succeed
Viscount Kaoki as the Japanese minister
to tbe court of St. James. Viscount Kaoki
has been tilling the two offices of minister
to Great Britain and Germany, and to re
lieve him of a share of his burdensome du
ties Kato has been given the British mis
sion. Viscount Kaoki will remain in
China's Overtures for Peace.
"When I left Japan," said tho new
minister, "the Chinese government was
making overtures for peace, but, as you
have probably been informed, nothing
haa been accomplished. Tho Japanese
government expressed its willingness to
receive the Chinese plenipotentiaries and
negotiate a treaty of peace, but my Inst
advices are to the effect that China would
not agree to having the meeting held in
Japan. China prefers that Japan's rep
resentative go over to China, but Japan
insists that the plenipotentiaries of China
should meet her own representatives on
Japanese soil, since it is China that is su
ing for peace and not Japan. Just what
the outcome of the present negotiations
will be it is dillicult to surmise. Our
armies are still prosecuting the war la
China. Overtures were made by China
for an armistice, pending the settlement
of the negotiations for peace, but Japan
naturally declined to grant that favor.
Various Stories Seat Out.
"It would give China an advantage to
which she is not entitled and there will lie
no cessation of hostilities until the final
settlement of a treaty of peace."
Mr. Kato said that no olticial announce
neut or intimation of the terms under
which Japan would agree to a cessation of
war had been made.
"Various stories have lecn tel"jrraphed
over the world designed to show the
amount of idemuity asked by Japan," he
said, "but 1 can say that not even the
Chinese government know what Japan
will demand. The secrets of the various
departments of the Japanese government
are can-fully guarded. I know this much,
however: China has asked tho Jaiuinese
government fur a statement of what in
demnity it would require as a condition
for the cessation of hostilities.
Hostilities Will Continue.
"The reply made to China was Jthat the
matter would only be discussed when
China consented to send plenipotentiaries
to Japan toji'fjfotintu a pt-'.aV treaty."
Minister Kato said that in the absence
of any agreement between the two powers
for the termination of the war Japan will
continue to prosecute its campaign in
China this winter with unrelenting vigor.

nese capital taken while the cold weather
