' Reports reaching Japan from many
quarters in Siberia have convinced
the Japanese government that just
such an attack is to be feared from
Germany; if not directly, then, by stir
ring up the bolslieviki 'in Siberia.
Whether this apprehension is well
founded is declared to be entirely
within the judgment of the Japanese
themselves, though it is probable they
would feel it necessary to convince
their special ally, Great Britain, of the
fact before taking action. .
Having reached a decision, how
ever, all that it would be necessary
for Japan to do in regard to other na
tions would be, as a matter of court
esy, to inform them of its purposes.
As Japan's special ally, Great Brit
ain, is represented as having confi
dence in Japan's intentions and has
sought to impart that confidence to
the United States,' not with a view to
seeking any active to-operattoa in a
Siberian campaign, but simply to allay
any feeling of apprehension that
might develop in this country that
Japan intends to extend its sever
eicrnty over Siberia permanently.
. It is believed that the State depart
ment 'has been convinced on this
point, but does not consider it neces-
sary to record hscii cuner , anirma
tively or negatively.

speculation here as to who will be se
lected by Oeneral rershing to com
mand the first corps of his army.
Maior-General Hunter Liggett is
known to have acted in that capacity,
but as yet the expeditionary com
mander has not made any recom
mendation. Jt is possible that the French sys
tem will be followed in the American
army so far as the appointment of
corps commanders goes. It is the
custom in France to select any one of
the division commanders in a corps
and to place him at the head of the
corps. He retains his rank as division
commander, however, and in the case
of the American army that would be
a najor-general. If the French prac
tice is adopted, therefore .the grade
of lieutenant-general may be em
ployed only for field army command
ers. confidence of General von Hinden

sector. General Conrad is acting as
