Own at Inn Servants Only
PEKING, April .-The American legation
here has received no Information regard
ing the Invasion of the American consul
ate at Mukden by the Japanese and the
resultant encounter between the Japanese
and the naval staff of the consulate. The
Japanese legation also was questioned end
partial verification was ohtalned, together
with expressions of regret that such
"small matter" ahould have been cabled
to the fnlted States.
An official of the Japanese legation quoted
a Japanese newspaper published In Muk
den as saying tht ' Wlllard D. Straight
the American consul general there, was
an excitable man, giving to exaggerating
trifles and difficult t deal with. Other
wise the leptt Hon, minimised the occur,
rence and deplored it.
A court of Inquiry has been ordered
by M. Kato, the Japanese consul general
at Mukden, and a' full report will not be
submitted to either Washington or Peking
pending the report of this court, tt is
hoped that this Investigation will lead to
an acceptable explanation and proper re-.
Details of the Incident,
A detailed- account of, the Incident has
been obtained from an authoritative source,
This shows that the conduct of M. Kata.
In the beginning, . might be described as
extraordlnary-lt Is even said that he was
Insolent. When the matter was brought
to his attention ho, offered no apology
nor did he express regret ar.d he aeked
Mr. Straight to prove his own state'
ments as against the verbal declarations
of the Japanese thugs involved. Mr,
Btralght declined to do so, but he permitted
a Japanese official to examine the scene
cf the onslaught ajid to conduct an In
Mr. Straight ,twit made formal repre
sentation of the seriousness of invading a
consulate protected by the flag and drag
ging the servants of the consulate out
Into the highway. At the second presents
tlon, M. Kato's response wns more cordial,
but ho nought, to discredit Mr. Straight's
protest by the declaration of . a postman
that the staff- of the consulate had at
tacked him. .
The postman was bringing a letter to
the consulate. Unfortunately he sought to
enter the building by a private door, which
was barred, and encountered the opposition
of the Chinese- servants of the consulat
At this point Mr. Straight intervened and
conducted the postman to the main en
Jap That! Renew Troable.
The postman went away to return in a
short time with the Japanese who made
the attack. The consulate servants offered
resistance. Tho postman entered Mr.
Straight's bedroom and hit one of his per
sonal servants oh the face. While this was
going on the postman's accomplices had
been capture by other servants. The post
man made an attempt to call In. reinforce
ments, but In 'this Ihi was not successful.
In the meantime the Chinese police had
arrived on ' thct-saerib and the Invading
Japanese- were'rarresled. The police were
not of much uset-fos Mj Straight, found
It necessacytjyrsnallyTt(- uard,. tha pris
oners with a tlrea m In tils, haod and thus
to .convey them .before M. Kato... .
Persons who witnessed the encounter say
the postman was'ftt, the hqad of his .four or
five countrymen, who created the disturb
ance, and that during the row a number of
disreputable Japanese gathered. in the street
and menaced Jhe consulate,
Satisfaction is expressed in Peking that,
the outrage was. not actually committed
upon the person of the American consul
This Incident has. brought out reference
to the fact tlVat last January the German
consulate at Mukden was subjected to tres
pass and outrage at the hands of Japanese
and that Japan showed reluctance to mete
out punishment and give reparation.
GERMANY'S POSITION IN DOUBT
Reported to Have Sided with t plied
States Consnl Fisher In Dispute
BERLIN, April . With reference to the
Fisher Incident at Ilarblh, the Associated
Precs was authorised today to state that
the assertion" that the German consul
at. Harbin had7 received Instructions to
side with either the Russian or the Ameri
can consul was Incorrect. P. D. Fisher,
the ' American consul at Harbin has re
fused since his arrival there to recognise
the Russian administration of this terri
tory, taking the ground that he was ac
credited nolely to China, furthermore, h
has supported the protests nf China
against the establishment by Russia of
municipalities in the ratlroadxgne at Har
bin and Challar, Independent of the Chin
ese government. His attitude In this mat
ter prompted Russia to seek an explana
tion of his couishe at Washington. The
statement that the German consul at Har
bin had sided with Mr. Fisher against
the demanda of. the Rylsslan authorities
originated In St. Petersburg.
The Germrn consul had reported the
cast to Berlin and the question Is now
under consideration there, but no in
structions yet have been sent him. Never-
