While recoKnb.ir.t? that an attempt to exe cute the orders of the boltdievik government to ship the military supplies at Vladivostok to European Kussi.i miht precipitate a contiict between the Japanese forces in that Siberian port and the local soviet troops officials here today express ed little concern over this latest de velopment in the situation at Vladi vostok. The Siberian railroad is in very poor condition and because of this fact it was believed that the un skilled Prussian railroad employes would be unable to move any por tion of the vast store of supplies over the several thousand miles of railroad th.it lie between the Pacific port and European Russia. Otn cialtj here also were confident that any attempt to transport this ma terial which involved the suspension of normal freight and passenger traffic otr the Siberian road would fail because of ihe hostility of the population of interior Siberia, which would thus he threatened with starvation. Jap lorc-cs IlciiiTorfvri. An immediate connection was seen by the officials between the an nouncement from Harbin of the order to move the war material and press dispatches from Tien Tsin that the Japanese and Pritish marines at Vladivostok are to be reinforced because of increased anti-Japanese demonstrations. A lare part of the war material at Vladivostok has been supplied from Japan and it is doubted that the Japanese srovernmcnt would permit any of this to he removed, particularly in view of the fact that the bolshevik government has re pudiated the Russian bonds and other paper obligations tendered in payment for these and other sup plies. Then. too. leading Japanese newspapers have insisted that any supplier taken into Russian from the Siberian port would be com mandeered hj Germany for use against the allies. It wa understood that the atti tude of the American government would be one of observation, not withstanding the fact that American goods form a considerable portion of the accumulated stores at Vladi vostok.

The feeling in Austria is one of despair despite the claims Germany is mak ing as to what the offensive will ac complish, according to an official dispatch today from France. The situation in the dual monarchy, ac cording to the dispatch. presents to any perplexities for the govern ment.

" Britons Are Ready to Accept Highest Financial Budget .ciated Press Service: LUNDUN, April 20. The budget which Andrew Bonar Law, chancel lor of the exchequer, will present in the house of commons Monday, will be the highest financial bill that par liament has yet to consider. Fore casts by financial writers give the estimated expenditure for the fiscal uar, which oegan in April, at ouo.ijeo.noo pounds. Tho estimated revenue ( the present scale of taxation is 710,000, Oo pounds, which would result in a deticit of .2 50.000.00o pounds? to be covered by war loans and in creased taxation. The country is prepared to accept -reatly increased taxes and expects the government to propose to raise at least 100.000.0ut pounds ar.d per haps even double that amount, thereby. Some of the leading finan cial experts have been for a long time advocating more taxes and less horrowing to pay the cosds of the war. Some even support a levy on capital, instead of an increased in come tax. The majority opinion. however, holds that a levy on oapital presents so many practical d. facul ties that it could not be arranged without working creat injustice to individuals ami wrecking certain classes of business enterprises.
