MOVE OF RUSSIA
IT PUTS UNCLE SAM IN AN AN-C-"
RE-OCCUPATIOH OF MANCHURIA
Troops Put Dack Into New Chwang
Secretary Hay is Conferring by
Wire vith President Roosevelt
About the Matter.
WASHINGTON, D. C The state
department ha3 received official con
firmation from its agents in China off
the increase ofvthe Russian garrison
in New Chwang. Manchuria, and
there is reason to believe, if Presi
dent Roosevelt appproves, that it is
preparing to take vigorous steps in
Secictary Hay is in communication
with the president in California, and
upon the lattcr's decision, the secre
taire's course will depend.
It is statc-l that the department has
had itn patience taied by the course
of events in Maichuria and that it
now contemplates vi more radical step
than any which bus heretofore mark
ed the negotiations between the pow
ers on this subject.
The proposed step contemplates
joint action by Japan, England and
the United States.
Preceding negotiations have been
hampered by the liability of this gov
ernment to act jointly with other na
tions, without violating its traditions,
but it is now hinted that some plan
of cooperation with England and
Japan may b? dcvicd which will have
the effect of convincing the Russian
government of the united determina
tion of the three nations to insist
upon Russia's evacuation of Manchu
ria, while not actually committing the
" United States to a formal alliance.
This program is subject to the ap
proval or the president. If it is not
looked i:on with favor liv him
the state department may fall back
uMm its former method of individual
representation to Russia and ask an-'
other explanation to the happenings
In such an event the Russian an
swer is already forecasted by. the of
ficials here. According to advices to
the powers the troops were to have
been withdrawn fiom New Chwang
just one month ago Friday. It is un
derstood that as a matter of fact a
portion of the Russian force was
withdrawn from barracks in the city
to tents outside. It is presumed
from Pckin advices that these troops
have returned to the city. However,
it is pointed out that Russia employ
ed a saving clause in the promise to
withdraw from Minchuria, the lan
guage being "provided, however, that
the action of other powers shall not
stand in the way."
Russia it is understood, now claims
that this provision was a violation by
Japan when she mobilized her fleet
and otherwise showed signs of mili
tary preparations, which were con
stiued f.s a menr.ee to Russia.

WASHINGTON A far-reaching ex

Mr. Payne said the increase of $5,000

Railroad Wins Land Suit
WASHINGTON, D. C The su
preme court cf the United States de
cided the case of the Oregon & Cali
fornia Railroad company against the
United States in a case involving cer
tain lands in Oregon, which were
claimed by the railroad company un
der patents issued in 1871 under the
Oregon donation act. The decision
was favorable to the company. The
contention in behalf of the United
States was that the patent had been
issued by mistake, as the land in dis
pute had been located as early as
1853, but the court held that as the
land had not been reclaimed, as re
quired by law, the settlement of 1853
was not valid.
