HANGING INJUE BALANCE.
Two Points Upon Which Neither Japan Nor Russia Can Agree,
and the Slightest Moye by Russia Would Precipitate
War-Korean Troops Raiding.
London, Jan. l& In what It claims
ns an authoritative Htatenient, the Dally
Oraphio this morning announces that
the negotiations have arrived at a stage
leaving two poinLs upon which neither
P.ussla nor Japan Is Inclined to yield,
and ns to which no means of a com
promise have yet been found. Both
these points concern Manohurla, and
their acceptance would not in the
slightest modify the legal statu quo
or change the administrative situation
in Manchuria; but Japan insists that
"they he embodied in a treaty between
Japan and Russia, while Russia, as a
matter of amour propre, refuses to ac
cept such dictation at thc hands of
Japan. Much, however. Is still hoped
from the Czar's Influence."
The statement adds: "Of course any
attempt of Russia to Increase very
largely her naval forces In the I2ast
by moving her Blaek Sea or Baltic llects
would make war a question of only a
few hours." This statement seems to
be borne out by tho Associated Press
dispatch from Toklo yesterday, that

lar Dinner" to be given tomorrpw night
