lias Declared an Armistice
IT IS WITHOUT CONDITIONS,
The Action w as brought iYbout by
the Attempted Assassination
of Li Huuff Chanjr.
.Washington, March -29. The news
that an unconditional armistice had
teen declared by the Emperor of Jap.
an was confirmed at the Japanese le
gatlon, where it was stated that a ca.
blegram had been received from, the
home government. China made an
offer of armistice, and the peace pleni
potentiaries of Japan were empowered
by the emperor to accept It without
condition. This was done in view of
the attempted assassination of Li
Hunsr Chang. The armistice, Minister
Kurlno, of the Japanese legation said,
will be effective until peace negotia
tions are concluded. After the meet-
Ing of the peace ambassadors had been
decided on, China requested the decla
ration of an armistice, but Japan had,
Minister Kurino said, not been inclin
ed to Btop the warlike operations ex
cept on certain condidtolns. Theso
conditions ara not known, but it Is
suggested that the occupation of Ta
ku might b'S one, Japan wishing some,
thin? as a guarantee of the willingness
and earnestness of the Chinese for an
amicable settlement of the war. China
evidently could not arrive at a con
clusion to agree to the stipulations
demanded by Japan, but the attempt
on the life of the Chinese peace am
bassador solved the problem for the
th::e belnp, and hostilities will 'be sua.
pended. There will bo no Withdrawal
of Japanese troops from the territory,
The ipower of the Japanese goyern
meit to execute an armlRtlce will now
be put to a crucial tst.: The military
power of Japan aSmoBt' outstripped
the civil power during the war. This
caused iserlous concern, as it has been
feired that the military element, back
ed by the war spirit among the people
would not submit to an armistice, even
If the civil authorities ordered one.
To meet this emergency, a change 'ot
army commanders was recently made.
There have been three army corps
operating In different campaigns, and
each under one general of supreme
authority over his particular cam
paign. About three weeks aso, In an
ticipation of an armiHtlce, Prince Mo.
nutsu was created commander-in-chief
over all armies. The object of this
step was to concentrate the authority
In one man, In' close touch with the
imperial household, who could thus
execute an armistice by simultaneous
cessation of hostilities by the army.
It now remains to be seen whether
Prince Komatsu can execute the im.
pirtant .eommiPflion riven him. It
has been said that an armistice would
Ibe so unpopular among the people and
soldiery that ft would assure the po
litical retirement of two Japanese
statesmen -Count Ito and Mr. Matsu
who have served as pace envoys.
The full text of the' cable received
at the Japanese le?atlon tidiy reyard
Ins; the armistice Is as follows:
"On opening of negotiations the Chi.
nf.p plenipotentiary proposed an ar
mistice to which Japan was willing to
aept on certain conditions. While
this ne-rottatlnn was polnr on, an un.
toward event happened on the person
of the Chinese plenipotentiary. His
majesty, the emperor. In view of this
unhappy occurrence, commanded the
Japanese plenipotentiaries to consent
to a temporary armistice without con.
dltlons. This was communicated to
the Chinese rtenlpotentlary.

is that he will return to the United
