Kiau-Chau. Germany's possession in
China which it has been ordered by
Japan to surrender, is a walled city on
the south coast of the Shan-tung
peninsula near the head of a large bay
of the same name and since 189S the
center of a German protectorate of
about 193 square miles. The popula
tion is 120,000 Chinese and 4728 Euro
peans. It was formerly an important
center of trade, but owing to the fill
ing up of the bay and the opening of
Chi-Fu, on the nortn coast oi tne prov
ince, business has fallen off. The city
is not large, but the suburbs are ex
tensive. The port of Kiau-Chau is 13 miles
from the sea and six miles from the
city on a small creek, which at ebb
tide becomes dry. The surrounding
country, with the exception of Lao
Shau, is flat.

The Bay of Klau - Chau measures
about 15 miles each way and receives
five small streams, which carry into
the bay much sediment during the
rainy season in August and September.
The port of Tsing-Tau was made
the foreign settlement and the capital
of the German zone. There wide streets
have been made and electric lighting,
telephone system and water works
have been Installed. Commodious
houses, offices, hotels and workshops
were erected and a -railroad construct
ed to the native city and thence to the
city of Wei-Hieu. Ten to 20 miles
south of here are several coal mines.
City Seised by Germana.
Kiau-Chau was seized November 14,
1897, by a German fleet as a result of
the murder of two German mission
aries, and in the negotiations which
followed a lease of 99 years was ob
tained, including the zone already men
tioned and, later, valuable railway and
mining concessions were granted in
this and the adjoining country. In
1898 it was declared a German pro
tectorate and Tsing-Tau a free port,
and by agreement with the Chinese
government the custom-house is man
aged by the Chinese imperial maritime
customs. In 1904 the imports of the
protectorate amounted to S8, 324, 000
and the exports to 13,500,000.
The administration of the colony
is to some extent autonomous. At its
head is a naval officer with a titb
of Governor. He is assisted by a coun

Military and Naval Observers Point
Oiil That Battle al Kiau-Chau
Probably Will Be Waed
Chiefly on Land.
WASHINGTON. Aug. 16. Japan's
ultimatum to Germany was received
by American officials as one of the
gravest developments in the war sit
uation, bringing for the first time the
great military power of the Far East
into a range of conflict heretofore held
The announcement of the ultimatum
demanding the withdrawal of the Ger
man fleet from tho Orient and the
evacuation of Kiau-Chau was fully
confirmed in official and diplomatic
advices received here. The American
Government has been informed of what
lias been done and has received assur
ances from Japan that every Ameri
can interest will be amply safeguarded.
Action Fulfill. Treat?.
The salient features in this new and
grave issue, as made known through
authoritative sources, are as follows:
Japan's action was taken on the pro
posal of Great Britain, and after full
conferences which led to the deter
mination that the Anglo-Japanese
treaty of alliance applied to the pres
ent situation. The two allies, Great
Britain and Japan, are therefore co
operating in the action now In prog
ress. Japan's ultimatum is in the first in
stance a fulfillment of her part in the
Anglo-Japanese alliance, but it is de
signed also (an issue having arisen) to
terminate Germany's control of Kiau-
Chau, which Japan holds endangers
the integrity of China and the peace
of the Orient. The action of Japan did
not come as an entire surprise to the
United States Government.
It is believed here, that the Adminis
tration will assume no attitude other
than that of passive observer should
Japan follow her ultimatum with a
declaration of war.
Repeated Asslirancea Given Guthrie.
Ambassador Guthrie, at Tokio, has
had many conversations with the Japa
nese Government, in which the intima
tion was constantly given that what
ever steps Japan might feel obliged to
take in aid of her ally, Great Britain,
the United States could feel assured of
her intention to maintain the integrity
The military and naval conditions of
Kiau-Chau, and the political events
leading up to the present crisis were
outlined today by a distinguished
diplomat of the Far East. He pointed
out that Kiau-Chau is at present tho
great German stronghold of the Orient
Since it was taken from China elabo
rate fortifications have been buiit with
bastions and glacis until it is now
considered to be as formidable as the
great fortress of Port Arthur, in which
the Russians withstood the Japanese
lege for months. It is now garri
soned by a German force of about
5000 men. The entire establishment.
military and naval, is under a German
Contest Chiefly Military.
Back of the fortress the Germans
have Improved the hinterland so as to
assure a large and constant source of
supplies to the fortress. Still further
back a network of railways has been
developed by concessions until German
influence is now practically paramount
throughout the whole of the important
province of Shantung.
This official pointed out that the
naval defense of Kiau-Chau fronts on
the bay, which is large and deep, and
adequate for the maneuvering of a
fleet. However, the German naval
forces there at present consist chielly
of cruisers and gunboats, without any
battleships of a large naval organiza
tion comparing with that Japan main
tains in her own wafers. It is expect
ed, therefore, that in the event of oper
ations against Kiau-Chau, they would
e of a military rather than a naval
haracter. The Japanese fleet, it is
expected, would station itself at the
ntrance to the harbor, much as it did
t Port Arthur when the Russian fleet
was held there, ana that military
forces would be brought fro.n Japan
to lay siege to the fortress from the
Japan Once Balked by Germany.
From the Japanese standpoint, Kiau-
Chau's chief menace to Japan is that
it lies directly opposite Corea, the
great field of Japanese colonial devel-
pment, and also Just across the sea
from the southerly Japanese iBlands.
Explaining the political effect of Ger
many's occupation of Kiau-Chau, this
diplomatic authority on Oriental affairs
said the issue presented today had Its
origin in the events of the Japan-China
war. At that time, he said, Japan had
succeeded In taking Port Arthur from
China after a memorable contest At
this point, however, he said, Germany
took the lead among a group of Euro
pean powers in demanding that Japan
should not retain the fruits of her vic
tory by holding Port Arthur. Yielding
to this pressure, Japan relinquished the
rlze. Shortly after this a German fleet
occupied Kiau-Chau, claiming; It as an
indemnity for alleged attacks on Ger
Possession Steadily Developed.
Since then Kiau-Chau has been stead
ily developed, until now, witn its rort-
ess. its hinterland and its outlying
ections of Shantung province, it rep-1
esents. in the Japanese view, a most
formidable foothold of German influ
ence. Meantime, Russia is no longer at Port
Arthur, and England has given up her
naval establishment at Wei-Hel-Wei.
So. It is pointed out, Germany remains
practically alone among the European
powers in North China, with Kiau
Chau in a cofnmanding position at the
entrance to the China Sea.
China has long sought to have this
territory restored, thus re-establlshlng
her territorial integrity in North
