Trade was balked by boycott s and the natura 1 rebecs . CabIeneWfj Qc 12 of Manchuria were lelt half-developed, ine .giu-j . -has been imperiled by the claims Japan urged against China. Count Okuma suspected everybody, and declared that in the dispute about the South Manchurian Railway "behind China is America ; but it is not America alone. England, Germany, arid France all approve of China s claims." Japan, as represented by her newspapers, is, however, quite satisfied at last by the terms of the new agreement. "It is a compromise and also an accommodation," declares The Japan Weekly Gazette (Yoko hama)'. The Kokumin Shimbun rejoices "that the clouds of mutual distrust have been completely cleared away. This paper congratu lates the Chinese Government "on the successful steps it has taken to prevent the circulation of incendiary .views and to avoid recourse to the boycott boomerang." The adjustment of the railway question affords profound gratification to the Shogyo Shimpo. But, much ex cellent advice is addrest to China by the editor of the Yomiuri Shim bun. "China to have forgotten," it says, "five y?ars ago the whole of Manchuria was completely lost to it, and that the Chinese Have received it back as the gift of the Japanese Army and Navy. . . . Unless China learns to look upon Japan with different eyes it is im possible to tell what troubles the future may have in storc;" "Japan (has lost many of her claims in this convention, tho the loss is lightened by the prospect that Japan will in the future secure the compensation of other and better returns." "The two nations must know each other . better," remarks the Mainichi Dempo, and it thinks, the amicable efforts pf. the imperial families and of the statesmen of the country ftvill "prob ably prove efficient factors'' "in restoring truly cordial relations." But while these journals see little else than a peaceful and profitable commercial cooperation as resulting from the convention, German and Russian observers view the new compact with foreboding and alarm. The new agreement deals only with the building of railroads and the .exploitation of mines, yet it unmistakably Has "a bellicose background," declares the Hamburger Nachrichten. "This view is gaining ground." "Japan and China are making warlike preparations," accprding to the newspapers. To .quote further: "If the statements in the press have any foundation, the vast mili tary preparations now being undertaken by both the yellow races can he accounted for only by the presumption that possibly, nay probablv, these two Powers will unite in an attack upon Russia in the near future." . Trie Novoye Vremya (St. Petersburg)' is of the same opinion, and In this leading Russian organ wc read that "in Japan nothing is talk ed about excepting this new war." To quote further: "Japan is building vast food magazines and raising many new reerl ments. She is manufacturing firearms of the newest pattern. The ; artillery is laboring with feverish activity on the completion of Uat teries. The troops are practising at the butts 'and carrying on maneu vers day and night, unhindered by rain, darkness, or storm. It is reck oned thai Japan possesses dozens of dirigible air-ships of the most recent' construction." ..... The writer concludes thai such preparations "can not b'e ma'deHgainst China" and that "it is not impossible that 1910 will b'e another 1904 MANY CIGARS COMING.
