It was announced in connection
with the programme to withdraw
from Siberia that Japanese warships
would be stationed at Vladivostok
during the process of evacuation to

The diplomatic advisory council's
approval of yesterday's cabinet de
cision is said to have been the logi
cal outcome of Admiral Baron Kato's
succession to the premiership.
Kato, who led the Japanese' dele
gation to the Washington confer
ence, returned to Tokio thoroughly
imbued with the spirit of that gath
ering and strongly in favor of his
country adopting a non-aggressive
policy. '
The official announcement of the
Siberian evacuation says:
"The Japanese government has de

the maritime province of Siberia by
October 30. Suitable measures will
be -taken for the protection of Japa

Official Makes Comment.
An official of the foreigir office,
commenting on the decision to quit
Siberia, said:
"It has been a matter of regret
that various circumstances prevent
ed Japan carrying out her desire to
withdraw her troops from Siberia.
"It cannot be said that' political
conditions there have attained full
stability, but a change has occurred
In the general conditions of the
whole of Russia. Communistic meas
ures seem to have been modified.
The powers have altered their atti
tude towards Russia, as attested by
the invitations to the soviet govern
ment to attend the Genoa and The
Hague conferences and conclusion
of non-aggression and non-propaganda
agreements with Moscow.
These latter promise to improve re
lations between the powers and the
soviet government.
Trade Agreement Expeetrd.
"In view of these conditions, Ja

original idea to evacuate Siberia.
"Japan believes that with this re

cause for suspicion the far eastern
republic of Siberia will strive to
reach a commercial agreement with
In conclusion, the foreign office
official declared:
"Japan also believes that this
withdrawal, togethu with Japan's
conciliatory attitude at the Wash
ington conference will be understood
by the world as evidence that Japan
is a non-aggressive nation, striving
to maintain the peace of the world."

; "It is a bigger problem in the
Latin countries. It will be the next
generation that will benefit by m-o-

thousands of people and did not see

Lady Doyle was quite as enthusi
; astic as to her reception as was Sir
, Arthur. She said she was on the
verge of tears because she had to
leave the United States where she
: has been cordially received.
"Even those who critized our
spiritualistic beliefs have been
" friendly in their criticism,", said
; Lady Doyle, "and, after all, no great
I movement can progress without
; friendly, constructive criticism. But
I shall come back with Sir Arthur
! next year when he returns to take
. up the cause of spiritualism where
he left off: k
; "When we cohie again, it will be
to talk to your great west. This
i time we did not go west of Chicago.
' Everybody had been lovely, to us
I and I dearly love the American pub-
lie. They listened with attention
and respect a man's views. When
! they differ with him, they are least
friendly in their arguments against
- him."
I Sir Arthur's stateroom was the
Center of attraction on board the
' Adriatic and the door swung wide
open. Many persons unknown to
him came In to grasp his hand and
bid him good-bye.
; lidj'. Play With Snake.
i "All went well until the two boys,.
Malcolm and Dennis, took a king
snake from a bag and began to
f play with it, whereupon the women
in the party beat a hasty retreat.
- The boys said that the snake was
presented to them by Raymond L.
Ditmars, "snakeologist" of the
. Bronx park zoo, .who learned they
J were fond of snakes. The snake
was about four feet long. To tire
delight of some and the consterna
tion of others, the boys wound the
snake about their necks and bodies.
At one time' the snake curled itself
about the necks of the 'two boys in
"8" fashion, its shooting tongue
tickling the ears of Malcolm.
Just before the Adriatic sailed. Sir
Arthur was asked what change he
noted most since his last visit.
"Your police department," an
swered Sir Arthur. "While I "was
here a few days just before the out
break of the war, I did not -have
time to study your men. . My last
impression is that of . 2& years ago,
when' the department was composed
of pot-bellied, red-nosed patrolmen,
who looked more for graft than for
criminals. Today that condition is
ohajig-ed. Now you have la. fine lot
of youn,g, alert, upstanding, athletic
men, who are on the outlook for
crooks more than for graft."
As the Adriatic drew .from her
pier. Sir Arthur and his family etood
on deck waving goodbye.

Deposed President Says He
Is Victim of Treachery.
Navy'ls Declared to Be Loyal and
Plans Are Laid to Regain Lost'
Power of the Government, y
SHANGHAI, China, June 24. (By
the Associated Press.) Sun Yat
Sen, overthrown president of the
republic of South China, defies the
Pekin government, denies,. that he
has taken "refuge in flight and de
clares lie will die rather than yield,
according to advices from Wham
poa, near Hong Kong, where the
southern leader is making his head
quarters aboard the cruiser Wing
fung. . - -
Sun, i when located aboard the
Wingfung at Whampoa, flatly con
tradicted recent reports that his
navy had- turned against him 'and
declared That his cruisers, to
gether with his army in Kiangsi
provinoe, which he has ordered o
return to Canton, would follow his
banner 1 in a counter-revolution
against Chen Qhiung-Ming and the
forces of the north. .
His downfall he blamed on the
treachery of trusted subordinates
led by Chen Chiung-Mtrig, whom he
bitterly denounced as. a "traitor."
He excused his bombardment of
Canton, against which the American
minister protested, as an expression
of - his protest , at the treachery
which had resulted in his over
throw. Sun confidently asserted that as
soon as his Kiangsi army returns
he will attack Chen's forces in the
Canton territory and, backed by his
navy, hopes to regain his lost au
thority.' In any event, he declared, he was
prepared to stake his life on the is
sue in his country's cause and he
was ready to die fighting for it.
Mutiny Fury Thought Spent.
Although fresh reports from the
interior of Kiangsi province are
lacking missionaries and officials
here bVlieve the fury of the mutiny
has been spent and the pillaging
soldiers of the Pekin. government
brought Under control either by
foVce or bribery. Danger of further
widespread violence is believed past.
It is possible, however, that reports
from the districts south of Nan
chang, where communication still
is more. or less disrupted, may dis
close further tragic developments.
It is assumed American and, other
foreign gunboats, which several
days ago started to the zone of ter
ror, have penetrated considerably
south of Nanchang up the Kan river.
T,n TtiTi o-ftwomment is consid
ering sending more . troops into
Kiangsi province to prevent iunner
outbreaks by the mutinous forces
there, according to reports from
Chinese sources.
Deposed Official Says He Will Not
' Surrender to Leaders.
HONGKONG", June 24. (By ' the
Associated Press.) Sun Yat Sen,
who claims the presidency of China
through virtue of his election by the
members of the old parliament, has
not resigned his office and will -not
resign under force, he declared in
an interview on board the cruiser
on which he escaped from Canton
when the city was captured by. the
forces of General Chen Chlung-
Ming. Dr. Sun asserted that the
southern navy was still loyal to him. I
"I am the victim of the treachery
of my subordinates ' and supposed
friends." he said. "As a man and a ,.
patriot, I am going to set an ex
ample for future generations .and
will not submit to the force brought
to bear by the Pekin leaders.
"After six years they now admit
they were wrong ty reconvening
parliament and ratifying the consti
tution. They want te reap the ad
vantages and eliminate those who
fought for these principles.
'I am going to fight for humanity
and capitalization, republicanism and
righteousness. I have not resigned
and will not resign to force. I will
only give my resignation to parlia
ment, not to subordinates."
