Washington, Sept. 23. While the
resignation of the Terauchi cabinet
is expected to result in important
changes in Japanese administrative
policies, officials here, who have
closely watched and measured the
development of political issues in
Japan,! expressed the opinion today
that these will manifest themselves
principally in the direction of in
ternal reforms and will not affect
the relations between Japan and the
United States or cause any substan
tial change in the plans for co-opera
tion between the two countries re
garding the extension of aid to the
"- Plans of military action in Siberia
formed hastily to meet the emer
gency created by the attacks upon
the Czecho-Slovaks by armed forces
officered and recruited to some ex
tent by German and Austrian pris

scope. Beyond the relief of the
Czecho-Slovaks, there is no definite
agreement as to further movements
of the international troops. Recon

European Russia, or even in western

tary possibility, but only in an in
i formal way.
1 The opinion prevails in official
h circles here that the new govern
ment in Japan will be content, in the
immediate future at least, to follow
the policy in regard to Siberia laid
down by its predecessors.
It is taken for granted here that
the Sei-Yu-Kai party, which has op
posed the Terauchi cabinet, now will
undertake the formation of a new
government. While numerically
stronger than any of the Japanese
parties, the Sei-Yu-Kai is not ex
pected to be able to command a pure
party majority in the diet. The head
of the party has been Marquis Sai-
onji, formerly premier, but on ac-
' count of his advanced age it is
" th6ught probable that active leader
ship "may devolve upon Mr. Hari,
? 1 one time in the cabinet.
The Sei-Yu-Kai party is progres
sive and may expect friction with
" the Imperial council of elder states
Vmen. If it is able to carry out
Aeven a few of its principles grave
' and important changes in the Jap

direction of liberalism may follow.

General Allenby Praised
For Victory In Palestine
London, Sept. 23. (via Montreal.)
The victory of General Allenby
in Palestine is hailed here as a model
in conception and execution, his
consummate use of cavalry being
especially praised by the military
The immediate effect of the vic
tory is likely to be the liberation of
the Holy Land, for it is anticipated
that General Allenby will have, little
difficulty in entirely clearing north
ern Palestine and be able to relieve
his communications by establishing
a base at Haifa, whence the railway
runs to Beisan and Damascus. Thus
the whole Turkish railway system in
southern Syria is controlled by the
Anglo-French forces in Palestine.
Ihe Turkish disaster, it is pointed
out, is bound to have the most pro
found reaction in Constantinople
and Sofia and likewise to compro
mise the situation of the Turks in
Mesopotamia. It seems probable
also that it will terminate the Turk
ish adventures in Persia and the
The Morning Post urges that a
diplomatic effort be made to detach
Turkey from the central powers.

Kaiser Visits Yank Front
in Attempt to Cheer Men
Amsterdam, Sept 23. "We will
never let Frenchmen or Americans
through here," was the promise
given Emperor William by his
troops when he visited the Alsace
Lorraine front September 19 and 20.
according to Karl Rosner, favorite
press agent of the kaiser, in a Sun
day dispatch to the Lokal An
zieger, JThe purpose of the visit was to
thank the troops for having brave
ly held out, and, according to a pos
sibly significant remark by the em
peror's chronicler, "at the same time
giving them inspiring words for the
fresh fighting oa the threshold of
which we are perhaps standing on
the southwest of the empire." '
The emperor first visited the sec
tion between Mulhausen and Col
mar, where, "in sight of the Vosges
front.' on whose heights and slopes
the German positions run, and with
ing hearing of the dull roaring can
non fire. Emperor William, conduct
ed by Field Marshal Duke A'brecht
of Wurtemburg, the commander-in-chief
of the army group, went from
division to division, camp to camp,
and hospital to hospital.
"Here his majesty." says Rosner,
"was again told by his generals, just
as by simple musketeers, that they
will never let the enemy pass. The
emperor passed along the entire
Lorraine front, but instead of visit
ing staffs, he called on small units,
brigades, regiments and battalions."
The correspondent reveals the
fact that the brigade commanded by
Prince Oscar, the emperor's son. is
stationed on this front. He says that
Prince Oscar has returned .to the
field notwithstanding the after ef
fect of his wcuuds. . -
Paris, Sunday, Sept. 22. The
governor of Alsace-Lorraine visited
Metz on Thursday last "to inspect
the damages caused by the long
distance bombardment," says a
Havas dispatch from Basel today.
The governors purpose also was
to visit the injured in the hospitals,
the message said.
Dispatches from the American
front to the Associated Press Sat
urday night emphasized the fact
there had been no bombardment of
Metz, although the forts around it
have been under tire and a shell oc
casionally has fallen in the vicinity
of the city.

Fear Shortage of Oil;
Ask for Tax Reduction
New York, Sept. 22. Declaring
that production of petroleum has
reached a critical stage and that
the future supply is threatened by
the proposed war tax on pretroleum
producers, Henry L. Doherty,
chairman of the taxation commit
tee of the national petroleum war
service committee, tonight appealed
for a further revision of the bill.
The tax bill as passed by the
house provides an 80 per cent on
the profits from oil prospecting. An
amendment gives producers an ex
emption of 10 per cent ot the vaiue
of the oil in the ground. Mr. Do
herty, himself one of the biggest
producers of petroleum m the
United States, declares this exemp
tion is not sufficient to encourage
prospectors to go ahead.

London, Sept. 23. Although re
ports of a German political crisis
arising from the supposed move
ment for parliamentarization of the
government are printed at greater
or less length in the papers here,
the whole thing is mostly regarded
as merely an integral part of the
German "peace offensive."
The Telegraph, discussing the ru
mors, says that this is the eighth
political . "crisis" in the course of
the war and adds "all of them have

The newspapers generally ignore
reports editorially, but the view
widely taken is expressed by the
Graphic, which describes the dis
cussion now filling German newspa
pers as a "strategem to lure the al
lies iue making peace by depicting
Germany as a democracy." The
Graphic believes that the emperor
is following the example of some
of his Hohenzollern predecessors
and is gladly playing his part in the
farce which is about to be restaged
with the centrist majority and the
socialists as joint managers." The
inwardness of the move, the news
paper adds, is that Mathias Erz-
berger hopes, with the help of Phil
ipp Scheidemann, the socialist lead
er, and his followers, to oust Im
perial Chancellor von Hertling and
secure the center of the stage as
peacemaker for Germany.
"Allied democracies are led to be
