LIMA, Peru, June 30.—The Peruvian government has dealt a severe blow to the considerable Japanese farming interests in the country by decreeing cancellation of all land leases held by persons "whose interests are contrary to those of the nations which took part In the Rio de Janeiro con ference.” The decree—issue'd yesterday—af fects all Axis nationals holding leases, but the chief sufferers are the Japanese, who hold most of the lands planted in garden truck, cotton and flax. The Japanese pop ulation of Peru is about 25,000 and grew steadily in the years before the war, arousing fears of a dan gerous penetration of the Peruvian economy. Peru has broken diplomatic re lations with Japan, Germany and Italy, but has not declared war.
