London, Jan. 1C. All advices this

opinion regarding tho far Eastern sit

peaco party losing all hope. Berlin

mont advlcoa yostorday ovonlng from
Japan indicate an oxtraordinary ac
tivity In tho preparations for war.
Those add to tho pessimistic feeling
already existing hero respecting the
probability of amicable adjustment ol
tho Russc-Japanoso trouble.
Meanwhile, tho Japanese govern
mont Is reported to bo striving des
perately to find some posslblo means
of settlement, but the stato depart
ment learns that, whllo profosBlng a
desire for peaco, tho Russian position
at least In principle, remains un
changed, and thcro 1b no sign of a
disposition to yield to tho Japanese
proposal. Still tho official opinion
hero Is that, If left ot diplomacy, tho
present situation may continue for
sevoral days, or oven wooVe. Tho two
chances of an earlier breach are said
to bo found In tho possibility ot tho
immodlato occupation of Corean ports
by Japanese forces, and tho presence
In tho Red Sea simultaneously of
Russian and Japaneao warships.
Respecting tho poslsmlltlos of a
naval clash in that section, It Is point
od out that only in caso of formal ex
istence of war could bo applied to the
Suez canal tho rules of neutrality
which rcqulro a period of 24 hours to
olapso between tho departure from tho
canal of warships ot bolllgeront pow
ors; so In advance of a declaration of
war thcro Is nothing to prevont a naval
battlo within sight of tho canal on
franco in tho Red Sea.
