of Dilatory Tactics/
WASHINGTON, Dec. 30.— The Japan
ese Minister called at the State De
partment to-day and reported that the
situation in the Far East was one that
gave great concern and that Japan was
making great preparations for the
worst. It Is hoped, however, that Rus
sia-will reconsider her first answer to
Japan's request.
At the Russian embassy and at the
Japa'nese legation the press 13 informed
that the situation In the Far East has
entered, upon a critical stage. Both
the Russian Embassador, Count Cas
sini, and Kogoro Takahira, the Japan
ese Minister, express ihe hope that war
Is not yet inevitable;*' Count Casslni
goes further and is of the opinion that
the situation may yet;be saved without
recourse to arms, but, the Embassador
has no official advices on which to base
this belief a«d it is only his personal
view. Takahira takes a more pessi
mistic view of the case.
Russia and Japan are receiving num
erous letters from ; Americans offering
their services in the event of war. The
Russian Embassador and the Japanese
Minister are declining all offers of as
sistance. At the Japanese legation the
Toldo Is Getting Ready for War.
Jnpanese Minister at Washington Says
The Foreign Office continues to as
sure inaulrerg that the German Gov
ernment does not believe war will is
sue from the Japanese-Russian contro
versy. The Japanese legation believes
and hopes Russia will grant Japan's
requests. Count von Osten-Sacken, the
Russian Embassador, has been accept
ing invitations in unusual numbers, ap
pearing at breakfasts, receptions, din
ners and balls, serene and confident,
The Japanese legation says it has not
received any intelligence from Tokio
confirming the statement that Japan's
patience is exhausted.
The Foreign Office says the German
representatives at Tokio have not been
informed in the sense which the Lokal
Anzeiger Bays they have, and further
that the Russian Government has not
received an ultimatum, for that would
be in effect the meaning of such a dec
as "Unbearable."
BERLIN, Dec.,30.— The Lokal Anzei
ger, without reserve, says:
"The Japanese Government has in
formed the representatives of the pow
ers at Tokio that the situation at this
moment is unbearable and that Japan
must strike if Russia does not accept
the propositions Japan has submitted,
as Japan cannc-t longer wait for a final
decision." '
Japan Regards the Present Situation
"PeaeO To-Day; WAr To-Morrow,"
Says the Official Novoe Vremya.
ST. PETERSBURG, Dec. 30,-^he for
eign dispatches received here yesterday
afternoon are reflected to-day In more
pessimistic editorials. The Novoe
Vremya begins Us leader with:
"There is no war to-day; to-morrow
there may be war."
The paper rather fatalistically directs
attention to the fact that wars marked
the opening of the seventeenth, eight
eenth and nineteenth centuries. The
Novoe Vremya, nevertheless, still pos
sesses faith in a peaceful settlement,
"We believe Japan will not place Rus
sia in a position where to yield would
appear to ba a renunciation. of the de
fense of her vital interests in the Far.
East. Russia does not desire war, but
nobody In Russia will permit the Jap
anese or other friends to execute a dip
lomatic dance upon Russia's peaceful
disposition. .In firm consciousness of
her power, Russia will await events."
PARIS, Dec. 30.— The Chinese Gov
ernment has promised United States
Minister Conger to soon forward the
Chinese copy of the commercial treaty
to Washington for the exchange of rat
ifications. It is necessary first to obtain
the Emperor's seal. When the treaty
shall have been ratified the opening of
Moukden and Antung to the commerce
of the world can be pressed.
It Is learned In diplomatic circles that
the Japanese Government has informed
the foreign diplomats that the situation
with respect to Russia is desperate, but
not • hopeless. It is believed this infor
mation was communicated to the
French Government for presentation at
St. Petersburg.
While still not believing that war be
tween Russia and Japan will occur, ttfe
optimistic tone In offlclaK and diplo
matic circles here was somewhat modi
fied to-day by advices from Tokio and
St. Petersburg. Japan, it appears. Is
hastening preparations for the purpose,
it is suggested, of influencing Russia's
action upon the Japanese note. Russia,
on the other hand, has no intention to
hurry. Her reply Is not expected to be
made before January 10. Russia's pur
pose seems to be to put the onus of de
claring war upon Japan, if such be the
result of the negotiations.

LONDON. Dec. 30.— Japan this even-
Ing completed the purchase of the Ar
gentine warships Moreno and Rivada
via, building at Genoa, Italy, for which
Russia was also negotiating.
News has been received here confirm
ing previous reports that Japan Is
mobilizing troops, probably with the
object of occupying Korea. The con
firmation has reached the German Gov
ernment officially, and it is interpreted
here, as in Paris, to mean not that Ja
pan intends to send an, ultimatum to
Russia, but that Japan may occupy
Korea without Russia considering it a
casus belli. The .situation is regarded
here to-night as developing rapidly, yet
not necessarily toward war.
In response to an inquiry as to
whether it was true, as asserted by the
Lokal Anzeiger of Berlin, that Japan
had notified the powers that the Russo-
Japanese situation was desperate and
that an immediate reply would be re
quired from Russia, failing which'Ja
pan would strike, the following state
ment was made by the Japanese lega
tion to-night:
"Japan hars confided to the powers
confidentially the circumstances under
which the negotiations have been car
ried on hitherto, justifying her action,
but not at all in the sense that your

always taking it as nri impossibility
that the situation in the Far East is
even grave. Others of the diplomatic
corps seem to be without news and
express general ideas, the easy and
safe one being that "hostilities are
quite unlikely." and that each side is
testing its adversary to the breaking
point. Everywhere there is anxiety for
authoritative news that shall bring the
period of suspense to an end.
The mobilization of the Japanese
navy is at least partially attributed,
according to a Vladivostok dispatch to
the Colc-gne Gazette, to open acts of
hostility oa the part of the Koreans
toward Japanese, probably necessitat
ing active measures of defense of Jap
anese interests in Southern Korea.
The Cologne Gazette considers that
this dispatch is an admission that Ja
pan has a good claim to defend her
interests in Southern Korea by force
of arms arid -controverts the rumors to
the effect that Russia would regard the
landing of a considerable Japanese
force in Southern Korea as a casus
belli. The paper concludes:
"The attitude of Russia on this ques
tion may therefore be regarded as a
further concession on her part."
had not been crowned with success.
But the Japanese Minister laid much
stress on the dispatch from Paris § an
nouncing that the French Government
did not believe that war between Rus
sia ar.d Japan would break out, and
"The French Government must be
in a better position than that of any
other power to know the nature of the
Russian reply. If they are honest in
saying they do not believe there was
danger of war they must have been
pretty certain ' Russia will agree at
least to the spirit of Japan's proposals.
Up to now we have had no indication
of this, and unless Russia does agree
there seems no way of averting war.

Minister Hayashi definitely stated
that the Russian evacuaiion of Man
churia was not one °of the Japanese
cardinal demands.
Baron Hayashi has declared that.
in the event of war, he had the best
authority for saying that France would
not join forces with Russia, even
should China co-operate with Japan,
and that the Triple Alliance would
preserve strict neutrality. For the
former statement Baron Hayashi's au
thority is not known, and his belief in
France's neutrality in case of .China
Joining in the conflict creates some
doubt and astonishment, In diplomatic
circles here there Is no indication when
the Russian reply may be expected.
At the Foreign Office and at the Jap
anese. American and other legations,
the Novoe .Vremya's editorial of to
day is regarded as warlike, but the
suggestin was made at one embassy
that the remarks might really be in
tended fo- home consumption, in order
to make a compromise more palatable
to the Kussian war party.

ceived no advices on the subject from
St. Petersburg. The Foreign Secretary
adopted a slightly more hopeful torre
to- the other Embassadors than has
pre\-ai!ed at the Foreign Office for the

Hope of Peace Rests
in the Efforts of
Last evening at a. meeting of a num
ber of intelligent representative Rus'
sians of the kind that can be taken as
echoing popular sentiment, the spirit
shown coincided with impressions
gathered here in governmental " cir
cles, which is that there is rapidly
growing impatience and ever increasing
conviction of necessity for Russia to
assert herself, the tone of opinion be
ing summed un"*-as follows:
"Russia musj be the dominating pow
er Jn the Far,.East. She long ago be
came tired of of inferior
Eastern powers contesting for the same
position, and is convinced that it is
high time that Russia should strike
with mailed fist and show once for all
that she will not be trifled with, and
the pretension of Japan that the yellow
races are to rule the Far East is one
which Russians canno. admit.!'
Apropos of this a Vladivostok tele
gram to the Novoe Vremya says. that
much attention has been drawn there
to the avowed intentions of the Japan
ese to place themselves in front as a
power of the Far East with the theory
of "Asia for Asians" and to conclude
an alliance for that purpose with the
Asiatic powers.
"The late peaceful news is destroyed
by to-day's Tokio news. Japan is tak
ing extreme measures. Russia does not
seek war, but not one Russian would
for "one . moment desire that Russia,
with her peaceful intentions, should bi
made to- dance 'to the piping of Japan
and. her friends. With full knowledge
of her. strength, t Russla/. Is: awaiting
events."" jj ','
The official Novy Krai says:
"A Mongolian war cloud darkens the
horizen. Chinese news shows that the
yellow peril is being strengthened by
Europe at the expense of Russia."
The Dirschewya Viedomosti begins
an editorial with the strong declaration
that it would be folly for Russia, after
expending such stupendous sums on
railroads, to be asked by a small power
like Japan to get out, and proceeds to
say: V-/- ' -
"No man of intelligence in Russia
would !!ke to see his country at war.
But the present crisis is one of such
supreme importance to Russia that any
giving way on part of this • country
would be unworthy of the nation's
aims and traditions."
Japanese will effect a landing in Korea.
Well, what of it, and what after?" This
Indicates that Russia proposes no pre
cipitate action, shc-uld Japan try to
force the situation. The Novoe Vremya,
upon the latest news, takes up the key
note universally heard thus:
"We Russians have employed every
means ar.d have been making all the
concessions possible in order to avoid
the deplorable contingency of this
scourge to the Decple.
