SEVEREFIGHT1NG ENGAGEMENT BETWEEN RUS SIAN AND CHINA TROOPS REPORTED. THE UTTER ARE DEFEATED Both Sides Lost Many Killed and Wounded but the Chinese Are Com pelled to Retreat With the Russians in Pursuit—Washington Officials More Than Pleased With Russia's Explanation Regarding Manchuria. Berlin. April S— A dispatch to the Cologne Gazette from St. Petersburg says hard fighting is reported to have occurred between tlie First. Second and Third East Siberian ltifles regi ment and several thousand Chinese troops between Kobantsy and Sinmint ing. The Russians lost a captain and several men killed aud a lieutenant colonel, several other officers anl many men wounded. The hmese lost heavily and retreated with th' Russians pursuing them. GIVES MUCH SATISFACTION. Decision of Russia Regardinfl the Manchurian Agreement. Washington. April —The deter mination of the Russian government not to press to a conclusion the nego tiations begun some time ago with the Chinese government in regard to Man churia, has naturally given great gratification to the government of the United States. The president is un derstood to recognize in this act of the czar another proof of his sincere re gard for the harmony of the powers now engaged in negotiations in China and his determination to do nothing to impede the speedy and satisfactory conclusion of these negotiations. In his view it is an act of an enlightened sovereign. The government of the T'nited States is especially gratifiejtl by this termination of the late com plication as it has constantly been in harmony with that of Russia in all the main points of our policy in China. It is the belief generally entertained in government and diplomatic circles in Washington that no motive can be assigned for this resolution, except the desire to preserve the concert of powers as it was clearly within the discretion of Russia to pursue what ever course thai government thought best for its interest, and it may be paid with absolute certainty that noth ing in the way of pressure or of com bination has been put upon the Rus sian government to induce this result. It is true, the government of the United States on March 1 made knoWB its views of the matter and communi cated them with entire frankness to all the powers interested, but no joint representation, it mav safely be asserted, has ever been made to Rus sia or to China. The Japanese minister. Mr. Taka hira. has received no word from his government since the latest Russian declaration was communicated to Japan. The minister says it is proba ble that the London dispatch appear ing in American newspapers as to the warlike attitude of Japan probably was sent out before the Russian dec laration had been received by the Japanese government. The dispatch alluded to stated that the Japanese government had decided that Russia's reply concerning Manchuria was un satisfactory and that a peremptory remonstrance, amounting practically to an ultimatum, would he delivered to Russia. This appeared to refer to Russia's latest declaration. Rut 'on examination it is clear that it could not have referred to the latest Rus sian declaration as this was not sent to the powers until Thursday night, after the warlike dispatch was sent out from .Japan. POWERS RESPONSIBLE. Russian Opinion of the Occupation of Manchuria. it. Petersburg, April 8.—The news papers here aver that the foreign poweis, and not Russia, are responsi ble for the continued occupation of Manchuria. The Viedomosti says it is quite impossible for Russia to with draw without some guarantee that or der will be preserved on her frontiers, adding: "Russia does not intend to be left in the far East at the disadvantage she was placed under in the near East 2.1 years ago." The Rossiya admits that Russia tried to arrange plans for the with drawal of her troops and that this was thwarted by nearly the whole of Europe and she must continue in the "unpleasant position of occupier of Manchuria." ALMOST AN ULTIMATUM. Japan Sends Peremptory Note to the Czar's Government. London, April 8.—A dispatch to The Daily Mail from Yokohama says that Russia's reply to the Japanese not/ anent the secret Manchurian treaty is regarded as unsatisfactory. The gov ernment decided to address a second and more peremptory remonstrance, and demand for a reply in a stated period. This note, which has been forwtrded to the Japanese minister at St. Petersburg, almost amounts to an ultimatum. Mr. Kruger Leaves Utrecht. TJtrecht, Holland, April 8.—Mr. Kru ger has started for iiilvcrsum, where he will stay for some time. The bur gomaster of Utrecht and a big crowd bade him farewell at the railroad ata tion.
