Mmj Her Indemnity to the Japanese 8500.OOU.OOO. WAsinxoTos, March 33.— The brief cable announcement from Japan that China has accepted the terms on which Japan is willing to conclude peace has renewed keen interest in the situation. Neither the Japanese nor Chinese legations has as yet any information that the negotiations have reached this advanced stage.
