During the last few months the influx of Japanese inhabitants into the islands has assumed extensive proportions, these authoritative re- ports declare. The situation is rapidly ap- proaching a critical stage. The natural consequence of such a con- dition is anticipated with grave ap- prehension by the officials of the island government. 10 Per Cent. Are Japs. In the province of Daviout is stated there are present moreHhen Japanese out .of a population Supplied with appar- ently unUmitcd resources, they are locating in the besLprovinces. Japanese interests are also said to be in ihe field trying to gain control of the sugar estates. Viewed in connection with the announce- ment of the Mexican government that concessions have been granted Japanese interests in lower Cali- fornia, the Japanese question, took on added mVfioitance. In the Mex- ican and Philippine transactions is seen a reason'for tlie insistence of the Tokio peace delegation upon a provision in the League of Nations declaring for race equality. The Japanese question as it effects the Philippines has been brought to the attention of the L'nited States government. It lias boca considered by the President but no policy lias been determined on yet. Members of the Philippine com- mission now in Washington to pie- sent their country's appeal for in- dependence declined to discuss the Japanese question. It is reported from Manila, however, that in event of favoiable consideration ot their" plans for freedom, thev will insist upon an agree.nent between this government and the Philippines whereby the power of the United States will protect them from the Japanese and foreign aggres- sion. The land laws adopted by the Philippine legislature are some- what similar to the California, anti- Japanpse land laws, and in gen- eral teims similar to those iccently passed by tho Malay states. Tt is noticeable that only Japan- ese men are being sent into the Philippines, very Jew women ac- companying them. They arc most- ly betweenu 20 and 23 years old. The inclination here is to view the Japanese invasion with great seriousness. The Philippines bping a part of the United States, the problem be- comes a country. Clemenceau's Stand for Severe Terms Explained by Weak- ened Condition of His Na- tion Compared to Rivals. GERMAN KICKS ALARM Berlin Has Already Carried Many Points in Discussing from Try to Split Allies When Called in. BY NABOTH HEDIN. PARIS, March lies the hitch against peace? It is not the League of Nations which every- body here accepts in theory and which Germany also regards as favoiably. It is what kind of peace? A question which ought to have been settled last November, or before Christmas, but which may not see answered. If the war had ended in a draw il is evident that a negotiated in which would have fig- 'tired mutual concessions, would neccessarily have resulted, but since Germany was defeated, the Allies were in a position to im- pose whatever claims seemed best to them. IN use the past terms advisedly. The Germans already balk, and what is more they win their points. Carried Shipping1 Point. They refused to surrender their ships which the allies needed until they were assured food which they are now getting. They refused to Polish troops to land at Danzig- because, while the armis- tice specified that the Allied troops might land, the Poles were not then one of the Allies, their state being created since then. From this attitude it is easy to imagine what will hapen when the Germans arrive at Versailles. They will dispute every paint, hoping lor a split in the Entente front. It is tills lack of unity in the Entente views which gives Ger- (Continued on Page Two) RETURNED SOLDIER GETS HIGHEST VOTE natioml' one for this 15-CENT MILK TODAY Danbury City Election Over- whelmingly Siott Leads Ticket.

The city is outwardly quiet since the few days in which there was much looting, especially of jew- elry shops. As a result of the looting', it is reported 150 persons were executed by the new regime, their communistic ideas apparent- ly being too violent.
