RUSSIA IS WAITING REASON FOR YIELDING ATTITUDE IN THE MANCHURIAN AFFAIR. NOT READY FORMILITARY TEST INTENTION OF MOBILIZING MAN- CHURIA FIXED FEATURE OF HER POLICY. TESTED METTLE OF THE POWERS NOTHING LEGENDARY IN STORY OF REOCCUPATION OF NEWCHWANG. St. Petersburg. May 14. Russia's yielding attitude in Manchuria in the face of the warlike feeling in Japan, England and the United States may be accepted as. signifying merely that she is not yet ready to submit the Far East question to a military test. Her intention of mobilizing Man churia remains a fixed feature of the St. Petersburg policy. Preparations to that end have long since been inaugur ated, and will be continued until Rus sia believes herself in a position to de fy the powers with reasonable hope oi success. Such a position can be at tained only after years of effort. What ever advantages the outside world ex pects from Russia's solution of the Manchurian question should be strenu ously sought now. Gen. Kouropatin. the Russian com mander-in-chief, is laying the founda tions for a strong military occupation of Manchuria. His work will be sup plemented by a Weil-Considered Scheme of colonization, and in the course of a few years a large army can be support ed in the Far East. Then it will be too late to affect the- Rusjian policy in the slightest degree except at the result of the bloody struggle. There was nothing legendary in the story of the reoccupation of New chwang. The soldiers actually entered the city. The troops, as stated in these dispatches, arrrived by sea and have since been moved up country. Ir was unnecessary for them to enter New chwang hence the Russian authorities had them do for the purpose of further testing the mettle of the powers. It is now understood in St. Petersburg that violent measures in Manchuria would be impolitic at the present juncture. Pekin. May 14The Russian charge M. Plancon has jriven reassurance re- C. H.

TI1HR DEMANDS EXORBITANT IMPRESSION IS THAT TREATY WILL BE RATIFIED WITHIN THREE MONTHS. IF COLOMBIAN CONGRESS DOES NOT PROMPTLY RATIFY THE TREATY. Washington. May 14.The opposi tion to the canal treaty at Bogota is I said to be largely due to the.exalted expectations of some of the Colombian I statesmen. The report that the new Panama Canal company has offered to give i SI 2.000,000. or about 30 per cent of the money it is to receive from the United States 10 promote the ratification of I the canal treaty is pronounced ridicu lous by William Nelson Cromwell", the general counsel for the coii.pany. Mr. Cromwell "says the company lias S not paid a sou and does not propose to. But there are statesmen in Colombia i like statesmen elsewhere, who know the ways of graft. They are looking for a fair share of the $40.oo".000 by promoting the ratification. Their de mands are exorbitant. They want big I pay', and there has had to be a Drawing of the Purse Strings I to prevent the Colombians from carry ing off the whole contents. The state department is not disposed to worry lover these reports or pay much atten tion to them. The impression here is I that the treaty will be ratified within the next three months and that all the reported opposition is ior the purpose i of warning the canal company to get busy and look after the opponents. The greed for graft is said to threaten the present government, as there aie several factions seeking to secure con trol. The special session of the I Colombian congress has been called to I meet June 20, just one month before the regular session begins. The state I department has received no official news regarding the proposed retire ment of President Marroquin In order to give control to Gen. Manuel Reyes. I the second vice president. He is said to be not bitterly opposed to the treaty. In fact, ne has advocated it as he has opposed it, hut as president, and responsible for Settling the question one way or the other, he will not throw overboard the opportunity to have the canal completed and secure the pay ment of $10,000.0011 for the concession and an annuity of S250.000 asN THE DAILY PIONEER.
