London May 16 . " The Daily Telegraph's " Tokio correspondent reports that the Japanese Government in its reply to the Progressive Party expressed the belief that France would observe neutrality, and that Britain was assisting Japan materially and fully by carrying into practice an ally's duties and responsibilities. The correspondent adds that the Kamranh crisis is considered over, but the nation is in no mood to bear a repetition of it. The "Times" Washington correspondent says .that Japan has decided two points regarding peace—first that there shall be no pourparlers until Togo has settled accounts with Rozjestvenski, and second that; Japan will deal directly with Russia, but if Russia desires President Roosevelt to act as intermediary, Japan will listen gladly to anything President Roosevelt may wish to communicate.
