LONDON, Dec. 23.-A dispatch to the
Daily Chronicle from Rome says it is re
ported there that, owing to her own obli
gations to Germany. Italy has declined the
English proposal for common action !n the
far East, including a Joint occupation of
Chucan. According to the same dispatch,
It is asserted that England has proposed
to liussia a conference on the Chinese ques
tion, with a view of avoiding dangerous
The correspondent of the Times at
Peking says:

Indication of permanent occupation, the
necessity of safeguarding our position in
the far East Is increasing. The Russo-
Chinese hank, which is the agent of the
Russian government, has offer-d to China
10,000 rifles, with payment five years hence.
China has accepted the proportion."
The Times. In an editorial on the situa
tion. sarcastically asks whether the Ger
man pr< ss, in claiming a Russo-Oerman
entente in China, and Kmperor William,
in his speech at Grauden*. anticipated
demand for the removal of the
German drill sergeants frcan the Chinese
army. It add*. with reference to the de
mand of the dismissal of the English en
"Our Peking correspondent says China is
hesitating, and po«»ihly we may he able
to appeal to motives at Peking which will
strengthen China's disinclination to com
ply with the Russia request for the dis
missal of English engineers."
The Shanghai correspondent of the Pally
Mail says:
"The Chinese government is helpless. It
is mobilizing its few available troops undf-r
th«i least capable generals who conducted
tha campaign aftainst Japan. The British
fleet is at present at sea."
It is understood, says the Daily Chron
icle, that Japan will protest in the strong
est manner against eGrmany's action, and
diplomatic circles ridicule the idea of a
RtissoGerman entente concerning China.
The press evidently is deeply inter
ested as to the attitude Great Britain and
the I'nited States are lik<ly to adopt in
the Chinese affair.
The official n» wspapers pretend that Ja
pan has acquiesced in Germany's and Rus
sia's moves, and will take no aggressive
action. Everything indicates the anxiety
thai hinges upon the ultimate grouping
of the powers. Japan's action in with
drawing her protest with reference to the
course of the I'nited States at Hawaii is
interpreted as showing . desire to be unin
cumbered abroad and to have her hands
free to deal with the Chinese question.
The Berliner Tageblatt ridicules the idea
of an Anglo-Japanese-American alliance,
yet seems to fear it.
The Kolnische Zeltung thinks America
will sido with Russia.

A crisis Is approaching In the Russian-
Japanese imbroglio in the "Land of Ever
lasting Turmoil." A special dispatch from
the Shanghai correal *>ndent of the Hong
kong Telegraph states that there is good
reason to apprehend a serious crisis in the
political relations betw en Japan and Rus
The Seoul correspondent of the North
China Daily News says:
"We are on the eve of Important changes
which will not only affect the Korean na
tion, but change the whole aspect of af
fairs In the far East, and, unless one or
more of the treaty powers Interfere. Korea
will speedily become Russian territory. M.
de Speyer Is a much abler diplomat than
was M. Waeber; in fact, the two can
scarcely be mentioned in on* sentence,
they are so utterly unlike, not only in man
ner. but in policy. M. Waeber spent most
of his time in the study and left the duties
of his office to others, while M. de Sptyer
has been most active since he landed, and
although he has been in Korea scarcely
more than a month, he now has the whole
country in his grasp. The army is entire
ly under Russian instructors (and I must
add that the troops axe wonderfully well
instructed), the arsenal is in charge of a
Russian officer, and now Mr. Alexieff has
come to Korea to take Mr. Mac Lea vy
Brown's place as adviser to the finance de
partment. A numiter of other foreigners
whose contracts have now expired are not
to have them renewed. Some of these were
never needed, for their advice was never
sought, nor taken if given, and they were
chiefly employed at the earnest solicita
tion of tlie country's representative at
Seoul. With Mr. Brow n, however, the case
is different. He has been enabled, in twen
ty months, to accumulate sufficient money
to pay off the $3,009,000 loan of Ja pan, and
now, just as he has accomplished it. the
finances are to be taken out of his haiuls.
This fact will be very much regretted, for,
as I said before, unless one or the treaty
ju>wers (beside* Japan, which need not be
reckoned) interferes. Mr. Alexieff will t ike
charge of the finances before this letter
reaches Shanghai.
"Japan in the meanwhile is not idle, and
has now begun to build barracks in Fusan.
Ttoe Japanese fleet has been surveying all
the southern coast of the peninsula, and
will soon pay a visit to Chemulpo. They
have and are still using money freely in
purchasing the good will of Korean offi
Commenting on the situation, an edi
torial writer on the Telegraph says:
"The special telegram from our Shang
hai correspondent today is of a nio-t
serioua nature !f correct. Ever since KUH
>i,i intervened in the Korean question. rot>-
bing Japan of the Li.iotung peninsula,
with the valuable fortresses of Cort
Arthur and Talienwan, and wounding
keenly the pride of the rising power, there
has been a suspicion of a bitter feud be
tween the two rivals for suzerainty in
Korea. Japan's conduct in the last two
years. If not evidence of a determination
to have revenge. w at any rate consistently
reconcilable with the beiie? that she
means to he 3? idy for a tight the next
time a dispute arises, and fight to the bit
ter end. She professes a wish for peace,
but she always has the honesty to qualify
the profession with an a*« trance ti-at ?■>:%•
will not again submit to be trampled on;
ar.d she has spent on new warships every
yen she could scrape up. She has now
the Fuji in Japan and the Yashima only
three or four days /-iff nod whatever her
s-rious statesmen may say or think, it is
in Jipan to Ignore the fire
brand politician* and the latter-day
demagogues. The mere. sight of such
splendid fighting machines must send a
tnrill of jingoism through th- 1 nation."
