Washington Nov 10 Tho Japanese
government has anticipated tho recent
offers of China to tho foreign powers to
1 furnish the complete otllclil correHpon
dence leading to tho present war uiul
Jias Itself made pubtlo this correspond-
ence It h published lit full as a part
of the recent proceedings of tho recent
Japanese diet which lias been receded
by tho Japanese legation here Tint
klst of the controversy has ulready
been made public but these official let-
ters between China and Japan ale the
first account of the sharp dlptomnllo
fencing between tho countries up to A
a few 1ajft before tbe war The let-
ters run from June 7 Co July H and are
numbered from 1 to 0 No 1 Is from
Wang thluexe minister to Japan It
Informs Japan that a telegram has Just
been lcrelwd from U Hung Chang
stating that lite Coroan government
has requested China to send troops to
suppress a rebellion of the Tong Haks
Viceroy LI It sa > s considers tho te
belllon serious and therefore compiles
with thu request for troops to protect
our tributary state First notifying
Japan In nccordanco with a treaty pto
VlMon that etch shall Inform the other
beforn entering Korea Number two
Is from Mutmi minister Of furelgu uf
falrs of Japan
it r > pointedly states In reply
I beg to derhtro that although the
words tributary stnto appear In your
note the Japanese government has
noer recognised Corea art tributary
state of Chlra
No 3 Is a notice from the Japanese
government that It Intends sending
troops to Corea to HUppres the rebel-
lion
In No 4 China thowa her teeth
for Iho first time It I a letter from
the Tsuug Hi Yamen the Chinese cabi-
net to the Japanese minister ut Pe-
lt In
InTho
Tho letter expresses surprise that Ja-
pan should send troops to Corea when
It has not been so requested by Cuiea
U adds the following slgnlfic < inL lan
guage
The aote object of your country In
ending troop Is evidently to protect
tholegation consulaio and commercial
people tn Corea and consequently It
may not be nece ary on thu part of
your country to dispatch a great num-
ber of troops and b ldes as no appli-
cation has been made by Corea it la
requested that no troupi shall proceed
to the Interior of Corea so that they
may iTot rauso alarm to her people and
moreover since It 1 feared that In
the eent of the soldiers of the tno
nations should meet on iho way un-
expected aerldetitfl might occur olnr
to the difference of language and mili
tary etiquette wo beg to request In
addition that you will bo good enough
t telegraph the purport of this com-
munication lo tho government of Ja
iKin Number fi is Japans answer to tbe
TsungLIYamcn In which Japan also
shows her teeth
It sajs As to the number of troops
to be sent to Korea tho Japanese jfov
ernment Is compelled lo exercise their
own judgment Although no restriction
< placed upon the movement of Hie
Japanese troops In Corea they will not
bo sent whttro their presence Is not
slight wajsusUln ed by the V TfiC
are under strict discipline and the Jap
anese government are confident that
Hlhey will not preclpttato a collision
with tho Chinese forces H Is honed
that China has adopted similar precau-
tions
Number C Is an offer of the Japanese
government to Join China In u Joint
readjustment of Korea on modern
lines
Number 7 Is Chinas rejection of the
offer In which she says The Idea
may be excellent but the measures of
Improvement must be left to Korea
herself
Number 8 Is from Japan to China
stating that Japan can no longer dis-
regard the law of selfpresenatlon
which Impels her to reform the deplora-
ble conditions of Korea at tho root of
her frequent rebellions
Number 0 Is Also from Japan to Chi-
na stilting that as China has declined
tn Join In the administration reform
of Korea the only conclusion deducta
bit Is that the Chinese government li
disposed to precipitate complications
This closes tha correspondence the
last letter being dated elevnn days
bfore Japan sank the Chinese trans
port Kow fihlng carrying the Chli
troops to Korea Japina declaration
of war followed sir days later
