NEW GOVERNMENT Officials and leading military officers of Mukden were reported today to have notified China that they intended to form an independent government in Manchuria. Advices received here said they had notified Chiang Hsueh-Liang, ruler of Manchuria, of their plan. The Japanese recently have indicated opposition to such a movement. Japanese Reparations Asked By Delegate GENEVA, Sept. iS—(UP)—The League of Nations’ efforts to end the Chlnese-Japanese conflict in Manchuria were deadlocked again tonight after It had been decided to create a commission to Investigate the clash and to fix a date for evacuation of Japanese troops. The Chinese delegate continued his persistent efforts to override the Japanese opposition to League Intervention In the conflict. He demanded that Japan release all prisoners taken in Manchuria, make reparations for property and return of arms which were taken from Chinese troops. The difficulty of the Chinese demands is that first, Japan is en titled under present treaties to maintain sufficient troops to guard the South Manchurian railway, which she owns and operates; secondly that any major concession to China might Inflame national opinion and cause repudiation of the government.
