Toklo, Jan. 27. Tho Japaneso gov
ernment has diplomatically Intimated
to Baron Do Rosen, tho Russian min
ister, that an early response lsde
Bircd to Japan's recent noto to Rus
sia. It is calculated hero that the
Japanoso noto reached tho Russian
cnblnet on tho aftcrnon of January
ICth, and It Is folt that mifllclont time
has elapsed for its consideration and
tho preparation of a response The
Japaneso government is conscious of
tho possible necessities of tho mill
tary and naval situation, and is un
willing to pormlt evasions and delays,
which aro dosignod to gain tlmo.
Tho future courso of tho Japanese
government is a carefully-guarded se
cret. Tho longth of tlmo that Japan
Is prepared to await tho pleasure of
Russia is unknown. It Booms prob
able that it has been determined to
act decisively within a few days. The
popular temper has long opposed fur
Whllo many object to Japan taking
tho Initiative, a majority would nqw
wolcomo tho Issuance of a brief ulti
matum, and a declaration of war, if
that should provo Ineffective Some
outsldo opinion horo inclines to the
beliof that tho activities of Japan will
bo limited to tho Belzuro of Corea
which onterprlso, It is thought, Rus
sla would not oppose. Tho Japanoso
government proceeds with absolute
secrecy, and tho peoplo of Japan are
ovon not Informed of tho exact nature
of tho demands mado on Russia.
