PROTEST TO FRANCE
Broken Neutrality May Involve

RUSSIANS SEEKING TOGO.

In the Harbor.
Toklo, April SO. Japan is contem
plating declaring war on Franco ami
calling on Great llriUln (or support.
This action follows tlio sending of a
formal protest to Franco against tho
uso by tlio Russian Baltic fleet of Kam
tanh bay as a rendeivoua ami the
coupling therewith of a statement that
if Franco refrained from acting Japan
will fond a tlect of war vessels to attack
tho Russians in the shelter of a neutral
A conference of elders was held lat
night at which tho entire sltutaion was
discussed. Immediately afterward tho
mikado was no titled that the elders be
lieved that the time had come when
France should be forced to live up to
her declarations of neutrality, and the
note of protest was drafted and for
It is felt hero that the situation is
estierncly grave, and there is no doubt
that if France does not act quickly the
consequences will be far-reaching.
A dispatch from Saselo states that a
Japanese squadron is getting in readi
ness there to sail for Kamranh Iwy and
attack tho Russians there, while Ad
miral Togo continues to hold the pass
age toward the Pacific.
It is reported that an American ami
a British squadron is in touch with the
Russians, watching for violations of
neutrality or the endangering of British
and American shipping. The belief
is growing hero that the stay of the
Russian fleet in Kamranh bay was prearranged.
THEY RESIGN UNDER FIRE.
Baltic Meet Joined by Third Squadron
of Five Battleships.
Paris, April 21. If the French mi
thoritiea nro to bo believed, news of
momentous iintort may Iks expected
from the Far East very soon, as, ac
cording to Foreign Minister Delcnsie,
the Russian licet under tho command
of tco Admiral Rojestvensky sailed
early on Thursday from Kamranh bay.
Its destination is unknown, but It is
believed here that it. will now sail to
endeavor to locate tho Japanese fleet
and give battle.
Naval experts here believe that the
third Pacitlc squadron of tho Russian
navy, which is commanded by Admiral
Nebogatoff, has joined Rojestvensky,
and that the latter now has eight first
class batlteships, three second-class
battleships, three, armored cruisers and
a number of other vessels of not outte
so good a typo. He is also believed to
haw received large quantities of am
munition which had been shipped to
him some time ago, to have filled the
coal bunkers of his ships, ami generally
to have placed his command in condi
tion to give a good account of itself.
It is believed here that Admiral Jon
quieros, who is in command of the
trench naval force in the waters of
French Cochin China, agreed to get a
message to the Russian commander to
day, ami that the departure of the Rus
sians followed. Such action has been
expected, as the French authorities
consider that the protest of Jaivtn
against Russia's using neutral waters
to recoal ami refill depicted ammuni
tion magazines was well founded, ami,
if Russia has boon asked to move bv
the French commander in the Far East".
a difficult situation has been cleared up.
