on his desk It is the first problem for which he must find a sat isfactory answer to in his new cabinet post Observers of the progress of events in the Far East have wholly given up any idea that the mikado will stop in his operations on the Asiatic mainland until he has gained control of the China coast at least south to Formosa Bent on Control Except in the extreme north ob servers do not expect
