the situation in Greeco as grave.
Some of the correspondents express tho
belief that the nrosont deudloc.k be

his advisers regarding the country's

nntngonism which hnd arisen between

opinion that the int ;rvintion of Greece
on tlie side of the allies already has
been agreed upon and that thj crisis
which now is apparent is artificial,
having ben nrrnnged to make it easier
for King Constantino to decide against
Germany, to which he hns felt under

General Von Der Goltz,
Turkish Army Chief, Is
Reported Oddly Missing
Attorney General Says He Is
Merely Ex-Ofhcio Member
Without Vote
According to an opinion rendered the
state board of health by Attorney Gen
eral Brown, the secretary is merely an
ex-officio member of that board and
has no vote upon the question of the re
moval of the secretary. Attorney Gen
eral Brown states that It requires four
members of the board of health to
elect or remove Its sccretury, Although
no hint is given in the querry or tho
opinion to indicate the purpose of tho
request for a decision upon the subject,
it is presumed that it has to do wiflt
the reported inclination of the majority
of the board to dispense with tho ser
vices of Health Officer Calvin 8. White,
who is seeretnry of tho commission, and
to elect Or. C. B. Marcellua, city health
officer of Portland, as secretary and
stnte health officer in his stead. Dr.
Marcellns was recently appointed
member of the health board by Govern
or Withycombe.
Even the women folks have their

Demands By Japan Upon China
Are Not as Serious as Supposed
My n United Press Staff Correspondent.
Toklo, March 4. (By courier to Sun
Frnncisco.) After a month of nego
tintions during which tho world nt
lurge has been completely confused In
regard to tho situation between Ciioa
ami Japan, it is now pitisible for the
first time to write intelligently regurd
lug It.
The ilemniiils which Japan has made
on China, while serious enough in one
nspect, aio not necessarily so serious
ns hns been generally supposed; and at
this time there seems little doubt but
that they will bo accepted by China
and that no other power will inter
fere or protest in any way,
At tho time the negotiations were
begun, a iiieminndnm supposed to con
tain tucse ilemniiils was handed to the
representatives of the United States,
llussia, Grent Britain, France ami lie!
giiim. Shortly thereafter it was report
ed thut there was a serious discrepancy
between the ilemniiils presented til Chi
ns, and the list cominiinicnted to the
powers, This discrepancy actually ex
isted, but it wns justified by the usual
nineuitles of Oriental diplomacy. For
Japan, In order to bolster up her case
with I hina, added to the real demands
a number or bogus reiei which were
intended only to frighten tho Chinese
into accepting the others.
The document handed to China con
tuined 21 clauses. Of these, 10 were
presented in the form or demands and
11 in the form of requests. The re
quests mnde up the most formidable
part of the document, forthey em
braced pretty nearly everything in the
way i if privilege and concessions that
( In in has left to give away, Toe or
iginal 10 demunds, the only Important
part of the document, were as follows
1. That China agrco In advance to
approve any treaty that may be made

2. That China ngiee not to lease or
alienuto nny Inud in Shuntung or any
