The calling off of today's confer

5,000 More Japanese Troops Are
Ordered to Siberia
Five thoueaud additional Japanese troops, compris
ing a portion of the Thirteenth Division, are ubout to
land at Yladivostock to re-enforce the Mikado's forces
in Siberia, according to a dispatch received today by
United States army authorities. There are at present
between 40,000 and 50,000 Japanese troops in Siberia.
In view of the fact that recent Tokyo dispatches Raid

One regiment of the newly arrived force is to be

had been held in barracks a month awaiting orders.
