Clrrtimatniu es
Washington April I -The suggested
Itusslaii plea that the action of the
powers In opposing the Manelnirlun
agreement will make It Impossible for
Itussla to leave Manchuria at all has
aroused Interest here
The comment upon this suggested
plea Is hat Itussla deliberately pro
poses to commit it greater offense In
the permanent seizure of Manchuria
If tile powers will not connive al a
lesser one In allowing her to make a
Noercl and private agreement with
China This plea It Is said would be
laughed out of any court of Interna
tional law so dlslugenloiis Is It Rus
sia Is displeased because the powers
discouraged China from signing the
agreement yet Russia herself Joined
with the powers In undertaking to
nvoid any such private arrangement
Involving the acquisition of Chinese
territory Ken if she persists even
If she forces China to sign the Man
chiirlan agreement there Is no obliga
tion on the powers and certainly not
on the United States to whom this
Russian plea was given to look upon it
as binding at any point By lie same
reasoning should Russia Tailing to se
cure an agreement continue In Man
churia beyond a reasonable time there
Is no obligation upon any power to
respect her title and It may be pre
dicted that this subject will lead to
controversy of the gravest character
