Russia Stands Pat. Paris, January. 11.?A strong current of otHcial sentiment was set in motion today favorable to strengthening the hands of Russia in her claims to exercise paramount influence in Manchuria. It is pointed out .that Russia, having conceded .Japan's paramount influence ih Corea, Japan appears to he tin willing to make a reciprocal concession by recognizing Russia's paramount influence in Manchuria. I here is reason to believe that the late Russian note makes clear Russia's at titude and intentions concern ing Manchuria and how far site is disposed to recognize .Japanese ambitions in Manchuria. bye Glass Fakirs Get in I heir \\ ork I)r. W. II.

Another party was arrested in Lnmherton, charged with the same oil'ence.
