LONDON , March 2'5. The foreign
ofllco takes a gloomy view of the situ
ation in the cast , in spite of the. set tie-
went of the Tien Tsln question , and
entertains grave Tears that the rela
tions between Japan and Russia may
shortly reach the danger point. Judg
ing from Information obtained hero
Japan has conlidcd to at lea t s. me of
the powers her determination to op
pose at all cost any secret arrange
ments between Russia and China by
which Russia would secure territorial
or other advantages near Korea. The
foreign oillce has received no confirma
tion that the Japanese fleet is mobiliz
ing , but It tvould not be surprised to
learn that such were the facts. A
high British olllclal said today :
"All Jiipan wants Is a tree hand
u alnst Russia. This she has got so
faros England and Germany are con
cerned , and I presume , so far as the
United States government is concerned
Jthough 1 do not imagine tor one mo
ment that any of tiie powers men
tioned would be drawn Into a war be
tween Japan and Russia. If Japan
sees nothing for it but to light she
would have the moral support of ob
jections committed to papi-r by at
least two other powers against secret
treaties with China. That Is all ; but
Japan seems to consider itsulllclcnt to
provide against Interfere'nco "
CONKMMS WORST 1IEMEKS.
- * > Conilimation of the foregolngdefini
tion of the sit nation was affoidtd by
Ibhc secretary of the Japanese legation ,
who said in the course of an inter
view :
"While reji icing at the fact that
England and Russia have reached a
pacific settlement over the minor is
sue , the main question the Integrity
of the Chinese empire remains unset
tled. In response to pressure brought
upon Russia it was announced that
Russia's secret treaties with China
had been modified , 'out the terms have
been withheld. Until we see the
treaties we will not be satisfied that
the modification does not consist of
words merely , without any alteiation
in the spirit. In this connection wo
believe other powers will support us. "
It appears that Great Britain would
toe willing to reler the whole Manchu-
riau matter to arbitration on the liius
of The Hague conference. The Tien
Tbin siding affair is not constdeied
Important enough to be disposed of In
tills way and it will immediately be
come a matter of diplomatic inter
change between St. Petersburg and
'London. '

von Waldersee , General Barrow and
General "Wogack , have been In consul

agreed to withdraw the Russian troops
from the disputed ground at Tien Tsln
provided the British also withdraw.
He insisted , also , upon a guuranteo
that work in the railway sldiugshould
not proceed until the matter had been
diplomatically adjusted. This pro-
l/osal and stipulation were satisfactory
to General Barrow and were accepted
hy him. Consequently the British
ind Russian troops will be withdrawn
at 5 o'clock today , thereby avoiding all
trouble at pr sent. Orders have been
Issued , however , that no British otllcer
Jliall leave or even "sleep out" at

Tien i fsln affair. There is nn mention
o ( it In theonichil agencies' dispatches
but j . the London correspondent of the

pute ' as unimportant. Another Lon
don correspondent quotes a Frencli
diplomat as saying that an Anglo-
Russian ; war is Impossible , and Russia
need i only threaten to support the
Boers to bring Great Britain to her
knees.
The Novosti advocates a Russia-Jap
anese alliance , which will assure Japan
her I present possessions and a largo

Russian territory , where they will be

petition. ] In conclusion the aiticle

In \ the orient as the Franco-Russian ill-

The Novosti apparently regards the
Russo- American understanding as
per i am-nt , as the paper does not men
tion American competition in Russian
territory , which is sponger than the
Anglo-German competition.
VON WALDKKSEK STEPS ASIDK.
TIEN TSIN , March 20 A special
train qearlng reinforcements of Aus
tralian troops left Pekln for Tien Tsin
at 10 o'clock this morning. One
French , an Italian and a German war
ship are outside the bar.
General Lome Campbell , the English
commander , and General Wogack.com-
manding the Russians , met Count von
Wildersee upon his arrival heie.
Leirnlng that both had received In-
st'-iictions ' from their governments ,
Count von Waldersee said it was use
less for him to give even an opinion
regard ing the matter at Issue.
It is the general opinion Tien In
Tsin that the feeling Is not likely to
reach a point where blood would be
shed. Both detachments on guard
have orders to do nothing aggressive
unless forced to do so. Except the
army and camp followers , the only
persons now residing here are the
members of the consular staff , two
clerks and two Jews , who are running
stores , and who left Russia in older to
save their lives. These are now being
offered inducements to move to tne
Russian concession.
The French concession Is qulot.
French gendarmes are on duty at the
British concession to prevent the sol
diers from trespassing and the Aus-
trallan brigade men are preventing
the Sikhs from Invading the French
concession.
Count von Waldersee has gone to
Pckin.
General Lome Campbell , upon hear-
Ingof the death of ex-President Harrison
risen , ordered all the British flags tc
be flown at half mast.

Russians and British over the con-
fitruotlon iI i of a railroad siding In tcrrl-1

ground J In dispute.
Jt There is a disposition hero to think '
too t much has boon made of the Anglo-
Russian Incident at Tlcn Tsln and &
more hopeful view of the affair Is taken
today. This Is aided by the statement
contained In Dr. Morrison's dispatch
from Pekln yesterday to the London
Times , which is taken to mean that
the combined efforts of the interested
powers are having the effect of causing
St. Petersburg to check any tendency
to undue aggressiveness on the part of
the Russian representatives In China.
NO 11ACKDOWN T11U8 PAH.
The ofllclals of the British foreign
office have not yet received ofllolal
continuation of Russia's alleged back
down in regard to the Manchuria ,
Turkestan and Mongolia , and inquir
ies on the subject are now being made
at St. Petersburg and Pekln. The
British foreign office is not relaxing j
its efforts to secure a more satisfactory |
statement of the intention of Russia ,
but the officials deprecate the British
press agitation on the subject. On all
sides It is oillclally and otherwise said ,
that Great Britain iias not the Blight-1
es't contemplation of resorting to
hostilities against Russia , whatever
ma } bo the outcome of present nego
tiations.
While hostilities are outof the ques
tion , however it Is not unlikely that
thcdlplomatlcrolations between Great
Britain and Russia will become
strained almost to the breaking point.
Possibly British warships may bo dls-
p ilched to bring pressure to bear upon
Russia , but war will not result unless
Eome fracas unauthorized by London
and St. Petersburg occurs between the
opposing forces at Tien Tsln.

oilkiiil , often the mouthpiece of t'ao

unueslrablo that he should be named
in this connection , said lost evening :
"It Is useless for our newspapers to
uin provocative language. They for
get that wo have a great army In
South Africa and that wo have no
other army , nor the makings of one
elsewhere. It Is impossible to go to
war with Russia. "

WASHINGTON , March 19. The Htato
department , through Minister Loomls
recently lodged a most vigorous pro
test to the Venezuelan government
against further Interference with Mr.
Hal ? , the United States consular agent
at Barcelona , Venezuela. It knows
n ithlng of the last reported Infringe
ment of his liberty , but It Is presumed
that the affair Is connected directly
with the troubles which led to the first
protest.
Ignatlo M. Balz IB not a citizen of
the United States , a fact that may
add to the difficulty which our govern

him , as It Is determined to do. Ho
was born In St. Thomas and Is a Dan
ish citizen so far as Is known here , but
having an exequatur Issued by the
Venezuelan government recognizing
him as a United States consular agent ,
the state department has decided that
ho Is entitled to the protection of the
United States government. It ap
pears that he Is engaged In business
and became Involved in trouble with
Venezuelan military by resisting an
attempt to collect a forced loan from
him. More than a month ago the
state department forwarded Its in-
Btructlons to Loomls to present to the
Venezuelan go/eminent that these
annoying Interferei.ves with our of-
flcnl must cease , but so far no results
have appeared.
