parently Is not yet draftod , no definite
statement could safely bo made.
Tho forolgn offico has reason to be
lieve, howovor, that Russia Is willing
to conccdo practically all of Japan's
demands, but sho cannot see her way
to mako a treaty with Japan rccognlz'
Ing In black and white Chinese sover
eignty over Manchuria. Russia has
approached Great Britain to urgo Ja
pan to forego this stipulation, and to
accept In lieu thereof tho assurance,
to tho samo end' already given to oth
It Is pointed out at the foreign of
flco that Great Britain, being such an
Interested party, is In n difficult posi
tion, and can scarcely recommend
such a course to her ally. For tho mo
ment tho situation rests there.
Whether Japan will insist to tho bit
ter end on a treat recognizing Chinese
sovereignty over Manchuria tho for
oign offico docs not know. It thinks
tho Japanese themselves will not do
cldo until after tho delivery of tho Rus
sian reply, which Is scarcely expected
until noxt week. Great Britain has
not yot taken steps to appoint consuls
at Mukden and An Tung.
