It was further pointed out (CONTINUED ON-PAGE ^HT) ~ London, March 2. - Premier Lloyd George visited the American embassy Friday evening and had an important conference with Ambassador Page, according to the Daily News, which believes the meeting was in connection with Japan's intervention in Siberia. It is quite unusual ifor a premier to visit foreign embasslesy Such calls usually are made by the/foreign minister. ' \ / Involves Japan's Security London, Mar*2.-Reuter's has issued the following statement from authoritative source in London: "Japan has put forward no suggestions regarding any action that Aiay be necessary--as a result of the Russian situation. The plain facts are that a few days, ago Japan addressed inquiries to the allied governments asking for an expression of their views on the latest developments in Russia. There lias been no proposal, -military or otherwise, by Japan. "It is pointed out that Japan did not enter the war under any agreement or terms with the allies' which would sug-, gest that there ha^fc been any question of aggrandizement in the mind of Japan. There was no such thoughf when Japan vembarked on* hostilities and If she has to extend operations, her object will not\be aggrandizement: "The new menace is one directly* threatening the Far East) and'immetil--iitely ;;involving Japan's, security. Ja-, �pan's interpretation -at her position is. that -she is responsible ifor'the mairiteri-. arice of peace and security in the Far cast. A German, menace alneady exists in Siberia'and was well known io the allies even before the latest Ger-ffrian advance in Russia." �m Ask Japan to Act London, Mar. 2.-According to the Daily Mall, it is understood thaF~~tia>; allies have decided to ask the Japanese (to Jake 'any steps necessary fpr. the protection of the allies in the-Far-East. - , ,: Stress is laid on the fact that the British and Japanese^ governments hold that Japan's intervention in the Russian affairs is not to ba construed a� an act of hostility to Russia or the Russian government. It purpose is to safeguard^ menaced allies interests'and to protect stores and munitions .; at Vladivostok and to assist Russia to lighten and eventually lift the burden of the German yoke.
