NIPPONESE DEFI Ultimatum Demands Kaiser Sur render Kia-Chow. MUST COMPLY BY SUNDAY Japan Insists Port Be Turned Over Pending Its Return to China Under 99 Year Lease Under Which It Came Into German Control in 1897—Gives U. S. Assurances. TCKIO The Japanese gov ernment has sent an ultimatum to Germany demanding that German war ships in the far east be withdrawn or dismantled and that the German leased colony of Kiao-Chow be sur rendered. The ultimatum expires next Sunday, giving Germany just one week in which to send her reply to the Tokio government. If Germany within this week of grace does not accede to the Japanese demands, the Japanese gov ernment will take steps as it sees fit. The fact that the Japanese fleet left Japan some days ago for an unan nounced point and that a considerable body of Japanese troops have been on transports awaiting an order to sail for similar length of time indicates that Japan is prepared to use such force as may be necessary to enforce her demands. In its ultimatum, as the terms of that instrument are described by the usually well informed Jiji Shimpo, the Japanese government demands that Kiao-Chow be turned over to Japan pending its return to China under the terms of the 99 year lease under which it came into German control in 1897. A German fleet seized Kiao-Chow bay in 1897, nominally to guarantee reparation for the murder of two Ger man missionaries. Negotiations were then entered in to with the Chinese government and an agreement reached under which China leased to Germany for a term of 99 years the bay and an area of 117 square miles of land on both sides of the entrance to the bay. The lease provides that during its term Ger many shall have all the rights of ter ritorial sovereignty, including the right, to erect fortifications. Germany declared Kiao-Chow a free port in 1899. It was explained by Japanese that it was necessary for Japan to demand that Germany tirro Kioa-t?hau over "to her instead of to China because China in her present state is not strong enough to hold the teritory leased to Germany against possible greedy na tions. Japanese therefore intends to take it from Germany and bold it for China until such time as China has become strong enough and stable enough to be entrusted to hold what is rightfully hers.
