The Kamranh Bay Trouble.
Japan will Attack at Moorings,
American Newspaper Opinion.
Reported Departure of Rozjestvenski,
London, April 21 The " JuUette" has been ordered to report herself to Rozjestvenski at Kamranh. Bay. " The Times " Paris correspondent reports that information here represents Japan- as grim and earnest. M. Deloasse has communicated with St. Petersburg, but there is always the possibility of Rozjesovenski setting at nought St. Petersburg instructions. If so, and France is unable to overcome his obstinacy, the Japanese will not hesitite to attack the fleet at its moorings, without hostile intentions towards Franca. There- is a consensus of opinion that in order to avoid complications Rozjastvenski must shortly go of his own accord, be compelled to go by France, or expect to be attacked. Excitement at Tokio is • growing rapidly. Thft pretext of the three mile limit is not considered a serious excuse. American i newspapers declare that it ia not believeable that France will give Eozjestvenski the use of territorial waters as a naval base. If she does Japan can send ships in, and fight as she is entitled to. The "Daily Express" reports that M.. Delcasse, in conversation with deputies in the Chamber, stated that Rozjestvenski quitted the Anna in coast yesterday.
