London. March SO. A dispatch from
Nlu Chwang today states that excite
ment of serious order prevails there
owing to two "causes, the first being the
aspect of Russia toward the , United
States as displayed In the recent act of
hauling down the stars and stripes.
A vigorous protest was renewed yes
terday against the unusual action to
American 'Consul Miller wnlch resulted
in the Ifusslans making a tentative res
toration of the flag on all buildings
from which they were removed. This,
for the time being, has the effect of
restoring a certain degree of confidence,
but the feeling against the Czar's forces
and officers is bitterly keen.
The second causa of excitement is
from a report that the Japanese are
determined to land' forces there and that
already five transports are en route for
that place. That the report is authentic

Most Comprehensive Undertaking of ;

(Spedsl DUpstch to The JoonuL)
Washington, March 29. Th Inform
matlon. has reached certain administra
tion officials that the interests repre
sented in the Northern Securities com
pany, recently declared by the United
States supreme court to be an Illegal
combination in restraint of trade and
competition, are formulating tentative
plans ; for the organisation of a giant .
merger of all trunk lines and other rail
roads in' the United States, - The nw
organization when properly constituted,
it IS said, will take the name of either
the "American Securities company" or
tba "National Securities company."
.Tf' i .the most "comprehensive under
taking of its kind ever projected, sur
passing In that regard even the Morgan
syndicate' effort to obtain control of
all the trans-Atlantic shipping. The
basis 'of this hew merger is found in
the decision of the United. States su
preme court, which, while denouncing
the Northern Securities company, large
ly on tne ground of its having been
formed to destroy all competition be
tween two rival railroads, did not go
to the extent of abridging the right of
any individual or group of Individuals ,
to secure control of various railroad In-,
: The news of the forthcoming merger
is of such character here; as for th
moment to cause the Interest in th
Harriman-Htll fight over the distribu
tion of the erstwhile Northern Securities
stock, to sing into second place. ' It is
even regarded a possible' that the for
mation of a new merger may reconcile
