Russia's unmistakable attitude

The next move is likely to be a
dash from the Clack Sea through
the Dardanelles. With this
move will come the alignment
of European allies in sympathy
with their own interests.

will not hesitate, once the Black
Sea fleet is in motion, to ally
herself openly on the side ot

her answer will influence uussia
to give way.
"Russia fears little from J apa

ever, regret that Japan will not
be the only nation drawn into
the war. The Russian Foreign
Office is fully aware that Great
Britain will not only remain
merely a moral ally of Japan.
