Japan's' definite accrpiane of a
i!nre in the disarmament confer
ence, which reached the state department-
today, gives consent to
a discussion of far eastern ques
tions in connection with the con
terence but suggests that prob
lems "Which concern enly particu
lar powers or which can be re
garded as closed incidents be
There was every evidence of
satisfaction overthe reply in of
ficial circles and it was indicate!
that the way now was regarded ,
as clear for the preliminary ne
gotiations which will fix the time
and place of meeting and details
of procedure.
Attitude Indicated.
A comprehensive consideration
of the conference program before
the delegates assemble also was
suggested in the Japanese note,
and now is regarded as assured.
The attitude of officials here has
been that such a discussion would
be in place once all the invited
powers had accepted invitations.
A portion of the Japanese reply
which attracted attention was a
paragraph declaring it was the
sense of Japan that during the
conference "problems such as are
of sole concern to certain particu
lar powers or such matters that
may be regarded accomplished
facts should be scrupulously
It was made plain, however,
that officials here regarded this
statement not as a condition of
acceptance by Japan but as a fore
cast of the attitude she will take
on the conference program.
, Pacific Issues Accepted.
It is pointed out that Japan
agrees to a discussion of such sub
jects as may be regarded as bear
ing directly on disarmament and
says that she is willing to talk
about Pacific and far eastern
questions which might otherwise
affect only two or three powers,
will readily f ind a place in the
category which the Tokio govern
ment has accepted.
It was recalled here in connec
tion with the Japanese reference
to "such matters that may be re
garded accomplished facts," that
the Japanese ambassador at Lon
don recently indicated that his
government would not care to dis
cusa questions like Shantung and
Yap because It regarded them as
'laving been settled by the treaty
of Versailles. In other quarters,
however, it has been pointed out
that the Versailles treaty is not
recognized by China so far as
Shantung is concerned and that
tho United States, has not con
sented to the treaty's ierms on
Yap and other mandate territories
so that in each case an open ques
tion is raised which would seem
to make further negotiations ne
cessary. Ii'oRTam Xot Complete.
It also is emphasized that be
cause of the situation in the far
east where various powers have a
direct concern in Chinese integ
rity and have large, material in
terests and concessions, it may
be difficult to agree that any
particular question affects only a
limited number of nations.
All of this, however, is expected
to be threshed out in the ex
change of views which is to pre
cede the conference.
