The Jupun-Cliinoso Trt'uty.
The S. S. China which arrived off
port brings Yokohama advices to
tho 9th int. The following re
garding the ratification of the treaty
is clipped from the Japan Daily
"A telegram from Peking, emanat-.
ing from a pourco to l6 relied on,
conveys the intelligence that tho
treaty with this country was rati
fied on the 2nd instant.
It thus appear?, that in spite of
all prognostications to the contrary, ,
. China haB honorably fulfilled its
engagements to Japan, but it now
I remains to be seen, whether the
i allied Powers of Uussia, France and I
Germany will permit the recently
concluded treaty to go into full
operation. As far as Uussia is con
cerned, wo apprehend not, and we
therefore, with 'ome degree of con
fidence, expect that it will insist on
Japan evacuating M4nchuria. What
part France will now play is bi-
yond our knowledge, but we appro-1
hend that it will support the action
of Uussia. It is not to be expected
that China will enforce the treaty
in the teeth of the Powers object
ing, though it stands committed to
allow the process to go on at the
hands of Japan, without tho inter
polation of any obstacle, on its own
So far as China and Japan arc
concerned, if faith be kept, tho war
between them we must suppose to
have been brought to an end, but
how about Uussia and Franco?
Tho former, it is understood, will
not tolerate a Japanese occupation
of any part of Manchuria, and
France is understood, though for
what especial reason wo know not,
to object the cession of Formosa to
Japan. Beyond peace with China,
which seems to be for the present
assured, it is by no means clear as
to what the two above mentioned
Powers will do; Ave can only await
the development of events, for
there is no teying what a day may
Commenting upon tho number
less rumors that have floated over
the country regarding foreign inter
vention the Nichi Nichi says that
although many rumors are current
with regard to the movements of
foreign Powers, tho only reliable
information on tho subject is con
tained in two Uouter's telegrams,
and so far any joint action on tho
part of these Powers does not ap
pear to have been fully agreed
upon. Such being the present con
dition of affairs, the authorities aro
doubtless cautiously making an ef
fort diplomatically to preserve the
rights and interests of the Empire.
But such statements as that tho
Bussian men-of-war havo made
such and such preparations, or that
tho Ilussian and German Ministers
havo left for Kobe, aro either pre
mature or unfounded reports. As
a matter of fact tho ltussian Minis
ter is staying at tho Consulate at
Yokohama during tho. repair of tho
ltussian Legation in Tokio, Tho
Minister is said to havo remarked
i that whilo such a rumor was pre
I valent, ho could not even tako a
trip to Miyanoshita. Our contem
porary also states that although it
has been reported that the Emperor
of China has ratified the treaty of
peace, no rcliablo report of this has
been received from any quarter,
hut as the term granted for the ex
change of ratifications expires on
the 8th prox., some definite intelli
gence on the subject will be receiv
ed before long.
' The N. C. News of April 29 pub
lishes the following under the cap
tion The Secret Cuvipact.
A" treaty of alliance, offensive
and defensive, between China and
Japan, with a proviso to allow
Corea alto to join and enjoy the
benefits of the said alliance, has
nlso been arranged between the res-
pectivo Plenipotentiaries of China
and Japan, to take effect imme
diately after ratification of the first
named treaty; but this treaty of
alliance iB supposed to be a -ecret
one, the terms of which ure to be
kept from the knowledge of the
outer world. China, moreover, en
gages by this treaty to employ a
large forces of drill instructors
from Japan for the Chinese land
forces, and even undertake, when
nccefcsary, to entrust her navy to
the command of Japanese naval
officers. In this treaty, also, China
promises to reform certain parts of
her civil, military and naval ad
ministrations upon Japanese lines,
it being specially impreed upon
China that unless a.radical change
bo adopted in them China can
never hope to contend successfully
against foreign Powers in the
future. N. C. Duily Ncaxi, April
There is no confirmation of the
rumor which prcvailed'on Saturday
of the resignation of Count Ito,
but it is alleged that there have
been some dissensions in the Cabi
net arising out of the grave posturo
of affairs, and it was probably owing
to these, that Count Ito's resigna
tion was regarded as far from un
likely; and when transmuted into
actual fact, obtained currency.
Speculation is rife, not unmin
gled with some anxiety, as to
whether existing complications will
lead to war with one or more of the
Powers that have given notice to
Japan' that they entertain objec
tions to some of tho articles in the
recently concluded treaty with
China. Let us hope for the sake
of humanity and of Japan, that
sorno peaceful conclusion may yet
bo reached, but tho assumed to be
facts talked about, seem unfor
tunately to point tho other way.
Thus wo hear of Uussia placing
her mercantile ships under the
British flag; of tho ltussian author
ities giving notice to Japanese resi
dents in Vladivostock, that in tho
ovont of hostilities thoy must clear
out, and that tho Japanese Govern
ment is despatching a steamer to
bring its subjects from thence. The
destination of tho ltussian ships
which havo left ports of Japan
under sealed orders, excites no in
considerable curiosity. It is thought
that they will rendezvous at Che
mulpo, and that if war really be
declared, they will land troops, and
tako possession of Korea, where
Japan at tho prcsenl time, has no
great amount of soldiers, in com
parison with what it has in China.
It is anticipated that Busia will
blockade Japanese ports, and that
Franco will prevent Japan from
taking possession of Formosa,
though ceded by China. Such arc
tho rumors at present current
amongst tho quid mines of this
