Japan's Finances Healthy. Tokio, December 22.-It is absolutely un- true that Japan is attempting to borrow money in New York. Her financial position is most favourable. The specie reserve in the Central Bank amounts to 113,000,000 yen, plus some 40,000,000 yen in London Moreover, the bank's note-issuing margin is 55,000,000 yen, and will be larger after the New Year. The Treasury has three capital funds, amounting together to 60,000,000 yen, besides some millions in London remaining from the bond sale of 1902. Finally, there are large sums lying idle in all the banks throughout the country.—^Tinies." Writing in the "Daily Telegraph," Mr. Ben- nett Burleigh writes that the opinion in r( rt Arthur is that there will be no war before the spring, but that the Russians profess the utmost confidence in their .bility to tackle Japan singly He also believes that Russia does not want war—at present. In a rear's time, however, she will be immovable. JAPAN'S ARMY RESERVE READY. Nagasaki, Saturday.—A Tokio authority states that the political barometer is falling rapidly, and that many prominent men con- sider the chances (.f war to be much greater since the receipt of the Russian reply, about the terms of which extreme reticence is still maintained. The Army Reserve men here are being warned to hold themselves in immediate readiness.—"Daily Telegraph."
