As Manchuria is a sub-state, it cannot declare war. Declaring war is one of most important factor in westernizing and one have to rely on literacy and clergymen. Manchuria lacks both. If China westernizes before Manchuria, it will be annexed, but if Manchuria manages to westernize before China, they will become fully independent. China will however still have cores on Manchuria.
Russia can peacefully get cores on and annex outer Manchuria with the decisions Peking Convention and The Ruler of the East. To do so they need to sphere Manchuria. One cannot do anything to prevent it. China is able to reject the convention, at the risk of war with Russia, but Manchuria has no say in the matter.
