Great anxiety was felt here today In connection with the heavy troop movements toward the Manchurlan border by both the Nanking government and Soviet Russia.

In spite of the lull In oordcr fighting, it was felt here that the movements of troops on a large nreMiirpri the nosslbllity of a mnior engagement in the near fu ture, even though war has hot een formally declared by either Biac. CLASHES CONTINUE. The situation along the border continued to be so tense that foreign experts here believed thnt it would not take many more developments to create a crucial situation. Reports continued to sift in of minor raids, with casualties on both sides, and that the Russian commander of the Pacific army was approaching from the interior of Siberia with a large force. The Soviet commander, General Vaslll Bluecher, was reported advancing toward Manchuria with a trained army of 30,000 soldiers the pick of the Red army.

RESERVES MOBILIZE. Mukden authorities, meanwhile. have ordered the mobilization of their reserves, estimated ut 120,000 men, besides the movement of all their available trained forces toward the frontier. In some quarters it was still hoped that a peaceful settlement of the war-charged dispute might be affected. But the numbers ot optimists were decreasing.

The great movements and concentrations of troops were interpreted as meaning that the highest authorities in the Mukden, Nanking and Moscow governments had given up hope for a peaceful settlement of the problem which arose when China seized the Russian-controlled Chinese Eastern railway. Raids May Plunge Nations Into War By NEGLEY FARSON FECIAL CABLE DESPATCH TO THE TRIBUNE MOSCOW, Aug. 24. There is no denying that the Slno-Russlan sit uation has suddenly become grave. The Russians have enough troops out In the far east now to walk across to Harbin on their hands If they wished, and the national feeling over a Russian-Chinese war in this country now Is hardening Into real hate as a consequence ot the Chinese heckling, as reported here.

From conversations the writer has had with responsible members ef the foreign office and well- posted military attaches, the concensus of opinion is that Russia will not attack. The war danger lies In pursuit, where RussTan detachments following Chinese raiders get drawn into Chinese territory and suffer heavy enough losses to demand retaliation on a large scale. Also there are one or two places along the frontier where Russians might be forced to protect their line. One ot these is at Manchull where the frontier makes a sharp salient, which the Russians may find It necessary to cut. It Is Interesting in this connec tion to note the statement of the military correspondent of the "Red Army Gazette," who speaks on August of having been "within four kilometers of Manchull" and of seeing Chinese troops in their trenches.

That meant he was IS kilometers Inside Chinese territory. On this angle of the frontier, Russian troops are marshaled In offensive position on the extreme eastern line centered on Khabarovsk where General Blucher has had his quar ters and where most of the petty Chinese Incidents have occurred, the Russians are on the defensive. The Russian press continues to whoop up "Chinese atrocities." Workers' meetings are held all over the country to contribute money to build airplanes and General Blucher, making his trip through China, was met by workers' dele- gatlons which declared they "would fight like devils to protect the Soviets."

G. GARDINER England's Greatest iberal Editor BY CONSOLIDATED PRESS LEASED WIEE 10 TE3T7NE LONDON, Aur. S4. Events at The Hague conference continue to overshadow In interest all other topics.

From day. to day, Britain been kept In a stato of tremulous expectation. First the people leurn, that the other powers are now disposed to meet Chancellor Ehowdetj's demands and that an offer Is contemplated. The otfer Is made that the whole difficulty is due to an arithmetical misunderstanding which the appointment of an expert would aIIivi It, -a a TVi inmmlttAA n. pointed and the misunderstanding is not eliminated.

Snowden has tea. with Arls-tide Brland and the hopes of the British people rise. He leaves, no agreement having: been reached, and the people realize with au ugly shock that that state of affairs cannot be allowed' to last forever. As this Is written, ertorts are being made to save the conference. But the outlook is uncertain.

BRITISH VIEWPOINT Great issues are at stake in this ieonferencs and the future course cf events must be greatly by-Its outcome. No doubt, if it breaks down, the attaitude of this country will be much criticized, iris well, therefore, that the precise nature of this attitude be clearly realized and its Justification calmly considered. -The demands of Snowden fall under three headings: In the first place comes the matter of the allotment of reparations. This has been regulated in past on the basis determined shortly after the war. This, was known as the Spa percentages.

It proposed, under the Young plan, to modify this to the disadvantage of Great Britain to the tune of snme $12,000,000 per annum. Snowden Is demanding that this s'oall not be done. Secondly comes the question of security. Under the Young plan, reparations annuities aro divided into two parts. of the one is to take place whatever hoppens.

The payment of the other is contingent upon certain conditions, prosperity and the safety of the German exchange being two factors. It la proposed that France shall have apportlonate unconditional annuities greatly in excess of the proportionate claim on tbe whole annuities, Franco loses less than It would if the Spa percentages were adhered to, the gain being largely at the expense of Eng-. land. SNOWDEX'S DEMANDS Snowden Is demanding that this ahs.ll not take Finally he Is demanding some modification of the system of payments In kind which In the past has hit British coal exports badly. Such are Britain's claims and it is for the world to Judge whether, after all, the sacrifices the British people have made they are to be judged as unreasonable.

Trie French and Italian press ay that -it is Ignoble for Snowden to wreck tho conference for so miserable a sum as the amount under consideration. It is not clear that the amount is miserable. But If it is, should it be more ignoble for the British to refuse this further sacrifice than for France and Italy to refuse to shoulder it? So far, all the sacrifices have been made by Great Britain. Really this attitude is a. little unreasonable.

These people have got so used to have every question nettled by sacrifice on the part of Great Britain that when Snowden calls a halt and says: "It is time you sacrificed something," they turn ana suggest doing something morally despicable.

BT CONSOLIPATED PRESS LEASED WIRE TO TRIBUNE WASHINGTON, Aug. 24. With the Russ-Chinese dispute now tt terlng its sixth week of deadlocks with actual Invasions of Russian territory and with in-it. creased movements of troops; toward the two borders, It become? more apparent than ever that active measures will have to be( taken by the powers If large scale hostilities are to be prevented. Exactly one rponth will havtS elapsed tofhOrrofiV since SecretSTi of State Stimson'made the concilia'1-" tion proposal to JITrance, Great Brtf3 aln, Japan, Germany and Itaty, which so far hs been spurned by enough of therti to make it inef-'" fective.

Meanwhile Russia, according W5 reports received here, has definite military planexfor the capture of1 Harbin and the Chinese Eastern1 Railroad which China took for early last July. These plane have been formulated with the idea that they can be carried out wlth3 out a violation of the Kellogg; it treaty for the renunciation of war. RUSSIA'S ARGUMENT, fxX This treaty Russia has promise to respect. And It is to carry Mit this promise that the present lib of argument has been evolved. TW If examined -carefuliyf has considerable Justification Behind it, in view of previous a'ctlfr" by the United States, Great BrltafnV Japan afcd other world powers.

-J1V' Briefly put, the argument is that- for Russia forcibly to recapture tho Chinese Eastern railroad would'be; no more an act of war than thft act of the United States In sending" 0000 troops and sixteen battleships to Nicaragua in order to protpcf American life and property and in order to operate the railroads from Cezlnto and Managua init which American capital and interests were lnvolved The Chinese Eastern railroad vm, built by -Russia and operated by -Russia until she admitted an equal partner In 1924. Theref6ree It Is argued that Russian invaslbij: of Chinese territory in order fxo' protect her own Investment would, be no violation of the Kellogg U. S. TROOPS IN RUSSIA." 'e' In making this argument, Russia, will be able to cite ample internal tional precendent. For instance, tns.

United States and after armistice, sent troops to" Siberia ana placed at Intervals along the Chinese Eastern railroad in order to protect that property. -AP though there were some skirmishes with Russian troops, both Countries': maintained they were not at' wax, with Russia. The United States and Great Britain also sent large forces ti the Archangel front after, jtbp armistice, blockaded Russian port and actually engaged in battle. Russian soil. Despite this ib, United States always claimed tpalt It did not want to war against R.UEr sia.

Great Britain has employed the same argument that- Russia how-uses, namely the right to safeguara vital communication to protect the Suaz in Egypt. The route ot the canal covers Egyptian territory, fit does not belong to Great Britain any more than the route- of the" Chinese Eastern railroad belongs.ta Russia. However, Great Britain has; stationed troops not only along her canal route, but also In Cairo, they Egyptln which is a con-, slderable distance from caij'aU The location of these- troops has caused strained relations between Britain and Egypt since war. v-. MILITARY PLANS MADEl-- The military plans reported have been formulated by the invasion of Manchuria eon template a triple advance.

One of the Foremost Journalists of France BY CONSOLIDATED PRFRB LEASED WIRE TO TRIBUNE THK GTJE, Aug. 24. Tt Is long tlm since Europe afforded the spectacle of a fight In a grab basket comnniable with thnt of The Hapruo. The avidity with which everybody fought for the German bearskin is worthy of the epoch that Immediately followed.

From a distant viewpoint, from Chicago and San Francisco, for instani-o, one must be (stupefied by these furious rivalries about lew million dollars. The British lion has been reawakened In the slight frail person of Philip Kttowdcn. who has become the mati of the day in the world Polncaro of Great Britain," as he Is irreverently called by an English Liberal. He had already given signs of Impatience during the elaboration of the Young plan, when the Americans wanted to take away from him at one fell swoop of back payments of the Baldwin-Mellon He did not want to suffer the injustice of the Young settlement toward Great Britain. Moreover, It was opportune for Labor to acquire some cabinet luster and prestige which would glvo jt, in the eyes' of the United Kingdom, compensation for events such as the independence of gypt and the social-textile crisis.

SORDID BARGAINING For the first time, oarhups. since the war, English have demanded money of their allies, but Euro peans must believe that the English are not versed in the art of solicitation, because Snowden has done It in such an arrogant fashion that has provoked-the most sordid bargaining during these three weeks. In nil this lamenflrble history France is representor by tho most pnclflo of men. Artltlde Brland has dono his best to avoid complications, France has made sacrifices it Judges compatible with its dignity, and it expects others to do as much. Italy, the principal beneficiary of the Young plan, was the longest to come to a decision.

Finally the popularity of Snow den In FoKland is at its apex, but to the datrlment of the position of England in the In his own party, the Socialist Second Inter-nationale, Snowden's action has been sharply criticised. Vandervelt, president ot the Second Internationale, has written in the Peuple Bruxxelles that Snowden had taken a' position opposed to that of the Internationa' conference of the Socialistic party on the question of debts and reparations. ARM WAVING STATE Nothing has yet been done for the application of the Young plan to International settlements, from which such great advantages were hoped. It remains in a state of gesticulation. It is probabla that far.

from being -the instrument of for the future between peoples, it will simply replace the execution of the Dawes plan. The financial situation of Eu rope has tather grown worse in consequence of these dissensions. The treasury crisis persists in Germany moro than ever. In England the export rt gold does not suffice to re-estubllsh the balances of accounts, bt cause they are not accompanied by norma1! restrictions. Franca alone remains In a privileged financial situation that abundant rrops will, without doubt, fortify.

But she will feel In her very unfavorable commercial balance the consumption crlalg that prevails In the Old World. VIEW OF MAN IN STREET Alas, tht man In the street understands nothing of this vast problem. His ideas are that all questions of debts and reparations be finished once and for all and that they never be heard ot again. Confidence, once restored, business would revive, unemployment would diminish, people would look in tho direction of other pacific developments. JingoUm has had it day on earth.

It can no longer lead to anything but disappointments and vain antagonisms, it la doubtless (Jut which has not been understood by the old statesmen at The Hague. Turned toward the past, they have not understood that people think ajove all of the future, and that they will not pardon them for having c. lowed once more tho chariot of international cooperation to get stuck in the mud.
