Plans for the proposed Ja panese intervention in Si beria have evidently been de layed temporarily at least by America s reiusal to sanc tion it, according to an offi cial close to the Japanese embassy. AMSTERDAM, March 6. Japanese intervention in Siberia will either lead to a Russo-German agreement against Japan or a Jap-German agreement, according to the Cologne Volks Zei-tung. WASHINGTON", Murch 6. ThrniiKh allied channelH, the United Stutcs today officially declared it does not absent to Japanese Intervention In Hl berla. Japan haa been notified by the allien. However. the ,1'nited State will not protent the interven tion it In merely a friendly an nouncement It does not consider In tervention advlKable now. No JTotcst Hut Kxplunation. The allies suggested the qntlnn lfthe Japanese nilaeian to the United fftates. Thin government has not ab sented to their Ideas. While we've not protested, we've pointed out. not , In a note to Japan but through infor mal exchange that we fear Teuton activities In Siberia are Ktlll un founded. The United Slates stands for the evacuation of Itussian terri tory In the West. Japanese lntervcn. tlon would bo contrary to this pol. Icy and to the general democratic aimn of the United States. Japan has .not entered Siberia yet. Whether she will do so. In the light of the Amerl can position Is unknown. The allies have been fully willing sho should act. Japan is considered an entirely i -lrnoly ally In the light of the I.un-aing-lshll agreement, the whole spirit of the American view regarding Si beria considers that. The views can not be Interpreted in any way as voic jealousy or distrust of the. Japanese. Moral Kffrn Harm Till. American lack of assent Is not bas ed on Var or suspicion of Japan. America has made it clear Japan would be the natural party to Inter vene If it were necessary. It holds the fears of German action in Siber ia are fantastic for the moment, while tho moral effect of Intervention would be harmful. The' American view Is no argument against the Jap anese, but solely on the Hussion effect. II. YJLECTION All Eour Congressional Seats Voted on at Special Election are Captured. NKWTORK, March 6.
