BREACH Of FAITH RUSSIA'S ACTION REGARDED AS DIRECT ATTACK ON AMERI- CAN POLICY. THREE NATIONS WIIL PROTEST UNITED STATES WILL JOIN WITH GREAT BRITAIN AND JAPAN. WILL CALL A HALT ON RUSSIA CHINA WILL BE URGED TO TURN DOWN DEMANDS OF CZAR. Washington, April 26. The dis-.j patches from Pekin announcing the terms which Russia has named to China for the carrying out of tne Manchurian agreement were read With deep concern in diplomatic circles yes terday morning. While the diplomats are not' dis posed, tor obvious reasons, to publicly comment on them, it is expected that at least the United States. Great Britain and Japan will join in a rirm note to the Chinese government, in sisting that China do not ugrce to the conditions which Russia seeks to im pose. It is rather expected in diplo matic quarters that the U.ated States will take the initiative, possibly be cause of the prompt action taken by Secretary Hay on one "other occasion when Russia sought to Secure an Agreement with China which was held by this and other powers to be inimicable to their interests. The interests of the United States, Great Britain and Jap an in Manchuria are such, it is said, as to bring these countries closely to gether in this matter. Secretary Hay will take no action in the matter until he has communi cated the facts to the president and" has learned the latter's wishes. The present impression here is that the Russian action is a distinct breach of faith with the United States. The Russian government pledged itself three times formally, and the docu ments are of record, that the open door should be maintained in Man churia and Russian troops would be withdrawn as soon as peace was re stored. Finally the latter promise took the shape of a treaty reinitiation.

Officials declare that there is no I danger of war With Russia over this i incident. The government of the I United Stares hr.s recorded its ideas of what should be done in Manchuria and as the result of Secretary Hay's I projected conference with the presi dent, it is probable that a further re monstrance will be added. But it is anticipated that Russia will, for the time being at least, allay foreign oppo sition, or at least that of the United States by carrying out its pledge as to the open door. JAPS WOULD FIGHT. Islanders Are Exasperated by the Ac tion of Russia. Tokyo, April 26.Russia's demand that China cede to it the sovereignty of Manchuria has roused all Japan. The statement made by M. Plancon, Russian' charge d'affaires, that no further steps will be taken lor the evacuation of Manchuria until' the new agreement is signed, has exasper ated the imoerial statesmen. Vigorous action is urged on the imperial govern ment by a large section of the press. In every circle there is great rejoicing over the fact that three warships have been dispatched to New Chwaug It is thought that the government will now experience little opposition to its plans for the increase of the navy.
