Tokio, Deo. 20. (By Mall.)
joreign onice has issued two Bttto
meats dealing with loans to China by
the government and by private cap
italists. Tho statement in regard to
government loans says:
"Mischievous reports of Japanese ao
tivities in China, more particularly with
regard to tho granting of loans, havo
for some timo past been in circulation
and have imputed to tho Japaneso gov
ernment intentions which are entirely
foreign to it. For obvious reasons, the
Japanese government cannot undortakj
to discourage financial and economic
enterprises of thcir nationals in China,
so long as those enterprises aro the
natural and legitimate outgrowth of
special relations between tho two
neighboring and friendly nations. Nor
is tho Japanese government at all re
ceding from its readiness to render
needed financial assistance to China,
consistently with the terms of all tho
declarations and engagements to hich
it is a party, should tho general secur
ity and welfare of China call for such
t the samo time, it fully realizes
mat loans supplied to China, under tho
existing conditions of domestic strifo in
that country, are liablo to create mis
understandings on tho part of either of
tlio contending tactions and to inter
fere with tho re-establishment of peace
and unity in China, s0 essential to her
own interests as well as to tho interests
of tho foreign powers.
"Accordingly, the Japaneso govern
ments decided to withhold such finan
ciul assistance t0 China, as is likelv. in
its opinion, to add to tho complications
of her internal situation, believing thu-t
rango for tho convenience of the cap
italists so that thev will bo able to
consult directly with tho department of
fiiuuico or any other offices con
cerned." Root Or Taft Will
