the reason of the refusal of China to re

Chinese Minister several times expressed
regret at the rejection and a atmn. a.
sire of the government to request him
to secure from his government an inter
change of friendly explanations, which
would set the matter right. Blair thinks
the investigation would disclose a de

was secured throueh false. renrAsnn to.
