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
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
