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
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withdrawn as soon as peace was re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.

I ticn for a temporary retention of the
remaining Russian troops
by Russia in the claim that the coun
try was still disturbed and that vig
orous military methods wire r.eces
sary in the inter.. =t 01 sanitation.
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.

Lincoln, Neb., April 26.One of the
boldest train robberies ever perpe
trated in this section occurred here
Two men boarded a west-bound im
migrant sleeper just as the train
pulled out from the station. The con
ductor, porter and passengers were
driven to one end of the car. where,
while one of the robbers held a gun on
them and commanded them to hold up
their hands, his pal went through sev
enteen men and women ar^. rowbed
them of all their valuables. Some of
the immigrants were carrying large
sums of money with v/hich they in
tended to buy homes, and the aggre
gate sum taken is reported to be well
into the thousands. The robbers left
the train between Milford and Lincoln.
Previous to boarding the train, two
Score of Passengers
who were in the waiting room of the
station were robbed by V-e same men.
The work was accomplished while the
passengers from the branch and feed
er lines of the Bu^ngton were in the
depot awaiting the arrival of trans
continental trains. Many of ihe per
sons in the depot were asleep, and did
not know they had been robbed until
aroused by the noise of the train pull
ing into the station.
The presence of the robbers was
first discovered by a woman. She
screamed, and the .people in the wait
ing room gathered around. Investiga
tion proved a majority of them had
been robbed. The confusion permitted
the robbers to escape. Later they
made their presence known on board
the immigrant sleeper.
This read has been robbed three
times within 100 miles of Lincoln.
The-robbe-y last fall netted $50,000 to
the men win did the work, and no
trace of them has ever been found.
