Note Regarding Latter'i Demands on
China Independent of Action of
England and Russia.
BRITISH VIEW 13 OUTLINED
WASHINGTON. March 18 It was
stated officially at the White Houne
today that representation by the
United States to Japan concerning
the latter' demands on Cfatna had
been entirely independent of any ac
tion by Oreat Britain and Russia nr
Further than this statement, of
ficials in all quarters preserved the
strictest silence, regarding the situa
tion as one of delicacy, state de
partment officials, however, have
admitted that since the beginning of
the negotiations between Japan and
China over the former's demands for
commercial and other concessions,
the United States has been endeavor
ing to Influence' Japan'to amelorlate
Its demands and to prevent any. in
fringement of the rights of tho
United States. None of the steps tn
the representations which have been
made to the Japanese ambassador
here, as well as to Toklo and Pek
ing, have been made public

LONDON. March 18.-rThe Mancheater
Guardian today review the recent polit
ical developments between Japan and
China and publishes what Is described as
a complete list of Japan's demands con
cerning which It ay editorially that the
general effect thereof would be seriously
to Impair the Independence of China and
place entire province under the tutelage
A comparison Is then made between the
Japanese demands as sent out by news
paper correspondents at Peking and pub
lished by Japan. "It will Immediately be
apparent from thia comparison," th
paper continue, "tht not ' only have
many of the 'moat Important demands
been omitted from the Hat a aupplled
to the power Interested but others have
been so modified a to disguise their real
character. Thus Japan did not Indicate
that while it Insisted China should agree
not to alienate any portion of its coast
J line or any lalanda off Its coaat to a
third power. It retained the right to de
mand Itself th lease or cession of u h
territory. Neither, did Japan let it be
known that it demanded exclusive mining
rights In the Ynitgtse basin and that it
be allowed to construct railroads which
would seriously affect British Interests
tn that region.
A dispatch from Peking yesterday set
forth that th allies had warned Japan
gainst preaslnc It Chinese demsnda and
that Washington had told Toklo that cer
tain of the requirement upon China vio
lated existing treaties with that republic,
Th vleiwa of th all lea were presented by
the British and Russian ambasssdors at
Toklo, who advised the foreign office that
Japan confine Itaelf to its first request

difficult for Japan's allies to negotiate
diplomatically with it in the future.

of any troops to the western arena and
that the German plan of dealing Russia
a crushing blow before attempting the
nuch discussed spring advance In the
west has failed. Five out of six of the
new German army corps are said to be
rngnged on 'and beyond the frontier of
Kast Prussia, a fact which British ob
servers think will make It' difficult for
Germany to meet the demands likely to
be Imposed on It' in the west.

which the antes must pay tha price Just
