Washington, June 29. The latest
information reoeived at the navy de
partment about Coraan matters was
from Hear Admiral Skerrett, who,
few days ago, reported everything
o,uiot. This government is Inadequately
represented in eastern waters, should
hostilities between Japan and China
begin, tnere being only two vessels
which could be utilised to protect its
interests, One of these, tbe Monoeaoy
is now in the Yattgtai kiang rivtr, and
is only lit lor services thcro. The
Baltimore is iu Corean waters, where
she was ordered at the time of the
(rouble in Corea began.
An ollio-r of the state department
said today that the only Information
.ibont the trouble tho government had
was that the C'liiieso had mads a pro
position to the Japanese government
thut both countries withdraw thifir
tioops from Corean territory Simul
taneously, but that Jap in had declined
to accede to the pr position. While
this government c lUld not undertake
to interfere in any way -ith tti s m't-

i hat it will tender its goo 1 offices with
a view of preventing trouble.
