The bent of the Russian press on the sub
ject Is In no sense shown by the Russian
government In Its communications' which
have reached the foreign ofilce. Though
Russia has protested and means to continue
to protest in the stoutest manner against
Tallen Wan being opened b > British Influ
ence , It will not carry Its protest to the point
of making It a casus belli. Further , It Is
by no means Russia's intention to close
China to other nations In any concessions
made to Russia by China. The Irritation in
Great Britain , nnd the disappointment In the
United States over the so-called backing
down of the marquis of Salisbury Is there
fore not yet Justified , Great Britain Is actIng -
Ing strenuously In favor of Tree ports In
China and hopes sincerely to bavo the moral
