The Dally Telegraph's Capetown correspondent states that General Smuts is more hopeful, but says it is unlikely that hia party will" win seats from the Nationalists, though it is probable that the South Africans may capture a fair number of seats from the lofcor party.

W. H. Langdon by a Japanese sentry at Vladivostok. Publicists, however expressed the belief that Washington bas not only asked reparation with guarantees removing a probability of similar incidents in future, bnt also bas again pointed out to Japan the wisdom of reducing if not withdraw- ing altogether her troops from the country where she possesses no sovereignty right, but which is dom- inated by her military power. This would open the old thorny question which Japan herself has been finding difficulty in settling. A division of opinion exists in govern- ment circles as to the Siberian prob- lem, it is reported Here. Leaders of the military party insist Japanese troops .should remain In Siberia, while the peace party is seeking ways and means to abandon any adventure which, it is claimed, is ruinously, ex- pensive and without hope of com- pensation. Paramount in Orient The impression exists here tbat Japan will insist upon' solving the question in her own way and at her own time, if for no other season than to assert the doctrine that she is par- amount in the Far East. The Hara cabinet appears to retain ita strength and it is believed it will survive tha impending session ot the Japanese diet at which relations between this country and America will be discussed.

The latter prob- lem, while touching Japan's national prestige and the interests of Japan in America, is apparently not re- garded with the same seriousness as the question of Japan's vital Interests near Nippon. Iu diplomatic circles here the opin- ion prevails that the situation dooa not justify the pessimism noticeable outside the borders ot tlio Japanese empire. On the contrary it takes the view that the attitude ot both tho Tokyo and Washington k'overnmentB is based ou confi'dence that a solu- tion for troublesome matters now In tho foreground will be discovered. Japan's popular protests against Cali- fornia legislation appear to have been followed by an attitude of and restraint, cognizance being taken of the fact that America en- countered g inline difficulties in find- ing a solution Tor the triulo problem of satisfying popular opinion on the Pacific slope, serving America's no.- tional interests and meeting Japan'a desires.
