The fact of the British protest was made known here for the lirst tiuie yesterday'by u dispatch from one of the foreign of- llces of Europe. It says that the pro- test was made through Sir Ernest Satow, tho British minister at Pekiu. It does not state when the represen- tations were made, hue from the fact that the dispatch was received in Washington yesterday it Is taken that the protest occurred within the last day or two. Although" ,the Russian agreement Is not specltlcally referred to, it is said to be clear that the British action is directed against the. Russian agreement. Similar to Auiorlcan I'roteil. The language appears to be similar o that used 'by Secretary Hay in the Uuerieun protest. The effect of the British action is to place the United states, Jupiin and Great Britain In oriunl opposition to the signing of a onventiou by China with any power ending the settlement of the Chinese roubles. The course of Great Britain s the. more slgnilicant from the fact hut'that government and Germany live- a .'written alliance relating to Chinese affairs. Accounts lor Treaty Not Being Signed.

Heretofore the American objec- lons to the Manchuria u agreement lave been addressed to China. Copies were furnished the Russian authorl- les, though the protest in form has >een to China and not Russia. Several >t the foreign representatives advised heir governments that this step was lontemplated by the United States, jut there is no otllclal information tvii liable as to how far the consider- ation of the move has proceededl China KaUIng Kaw Troops. London, 'March correspondent of The Standard, wiring 'esterday, says: "Officials here assert hat Count Lamsdorff (Russian foreign accepted the plea of the Jhineseminister at St. Petersburg that an Imperial edict prohibits the signing f the Mnnchurian convention and that ae has granted a brief delay.
