War is Suspicious.
A Japanese Minister Sayo Their Rela
tions With Russia Are Cordial and
No Tension Exists Between
the Two Governments.
London, Oct. 13. A dispatch from
Moscow to tho Times, dated October
10, states that a large force of Rus
sian1, troops, under orders for the far
east, 'are now on their way thither by
rail from KharkolT.
Tho Russian correspondents of the
samo paper sends quotations from
newspaper articles pointing to Rus
sia's intention to remain In occupation
of Manchuria and add that it Is re
ported from Vladlvostock that as a re
sult of famine in China, roving bands
of Chinese have crossed Into Manchu
ria, where their presence constitutes
a danger to tho Manchurlan railway
and that this necessitates keeping Rus
sian troops in Southern Manchuria for
an Indefinite period.
Tho peculiar official explanation of
the postponement of the czar's trip to
Rome, "owing to circumstances over
which he has no control," is Interpre
ted In some quarters to mean that the
threatening outlook in far eastern af
fairs calls for the emperor's presence
in Russia.
There is no confirmation of the
alarmist rumors. At the Japanese le
gation Sunday night no news had
been, received of the reported ultima

the Japanese minister in London, who

disbelief In the outbreak of war.
Paris, Oct. 13. The Figaro Tuesday
morning publishes an interview wth
M. Kurino, tho Japanese minister
here, on the subject of tho dispatch -to
tho Frankfurter Zeltung'from Shang
hai' to the effect that Japanese have
occupied Ma-San-Pho and that an offi
cial declaration of war is expected.
M. Kurino said tho source of the dis
patch was suspicious, as Shanghai was
notoriously tho originating point of
bogus news. He personally had not
received any confirmation of the re
port. He continued:
"Moreover, my government's last
communications were wholly for
peace. Our diplomatic relations with
Russia are cordial and no tension ex

whatever certain foreign newspapers
may say. I am inclined to think that
