After three Days of appeals mingled with threats the army rebels who on wednesday had seized several Public buildings and assassinated five leading states men surrendered this afternoon without any serious resistance. From Dawn army officers had made final frantic efforts to restore discipline without bloodshed. In addition to the official warning leaflets dropped from the air High officers Rode up to the rebel lines and made personal appeals which impressed the mutineers. Was prematurely announced yesterday that the rebels had re turned to their Barracks. This revolt was led by a group of younger officers ardent nationalists who were dissatisfied with Lite cautious attitude of certain statesmen towards Japan s expansion on the Mainland of Asia. It was not directed against the Goy Ernnt ent As such much less against the emperor. Hence it was hoped that when the rebels were ordered to sur Render in the name of the emperor they would do so without making he use of Force necessary. Army aeroplanes Early today scattered leaflets advising the noncommissioned officers and soldiers that la was not yet too late to surrender and save their lives. Tour wives and Chu Den and Sisters Are weeping said the the planes dropped telephones. Using these the army authorities or dered the rebels to yield. This caused the surrender of about 300 men by 9.20 an.

Kashi military governor of Tokio while the City i under martial Law broadcast that Force would be used against the rebels. Are not allowed to return for the present however trams and motor traffic were again moving freely in Tokio and suburbs this afternoon. How Australia is concerned London. Saturday. The relative strengths of the army and Navy in the next japanese government Are the main concern of the British and other european government. ? Britain Realises that of situation May ultimately affect Australia if View of to inevitable bearing on the Frei file. Those closest in touch with japanese affairs stress the rivalry Between the services. They Point out that the whole future of japanese foreign policy will depend on whether the army or Navy or both control the Cabinet while the military and naval leaders were recently United in demanding financial appropriations for a huge expansionist programme they Are divided on the priority of their respective demands hitherto the army has led the nation and has organised its economic forces almost exclusively in Asia for expansion in Manchukuo and Northern China. T the resultant heavy burdens coupled with disappointments in the economic Hopes in Manchukuo. The in creased danger of War against Russia and dissension in its own ranks have lowered the army s popularity. Therefore unless the present coup enables the army to gain a strange hold National leadership May pass to the Navy. This would mean the slowing Down of the japanese Advance. In Asia and concentration on the Southern Pacific which responsible quarters in Loca Tion emphasise Australia could not re Gard with equanimity. At present the japanese Navy holds nation wide prestige not because the Navy is less imbued with fierce nationalism than the army but because it retains the old aristocratic clique which was Long ago ousted from the army. Although the late government was headed by Admiral Okada the Navy sided its time and held aloof from politics. Observers Are now asking whether the Navy will longer be con tent to plat second fiddle. Big Navy propaganda is already in cull swing based on the need of protecting japanese Trade routes. By this Appeal the Navy astutely is trying to enrol the support of business interests. Plans in Pacific it was following Japan s withdrawal from the London naval conference last month that or. Takahashi. One of the assassinated ministers announced that Japan s economic Advance on the Mainland must be terminated with Manchukuo. And must be directed southwards with Formosa or the Man dated Pacific islands As a foothold also the cruising radius of the japanese Navy must be extended As far As new Guinea. Burnea and Cele bes. While Takahashi was a victim of the revolt this does not signify the end of the Navy s ambitions especially As japanese shippers Are anxious to see the whole Pacific Ocean turned into a sphere of japanese interest. Us me contrary japanese business men generally regard unhappily both the tension with Russia and the break Down of the London naval conversations. Their secret prayer is that War scares May persist to sustain the armament Boom but that they will not materialise because War whether won or lost is not envisaged with optimism. Anxiety ahead pointing out that the japanese army traditionally owes to the emperor Blind allegiance the Spectator doubts whether the army today acknowledges Blind allegiance to anyone. The tide of Public opinion is running against the army consequently there is great temptation to resort to Force. Certainly if the army assumes control Japan s economic situation already gravely precarious would become Des Perate. There will inevitably be serious anxiety regarding military develop ments in China and on the mongolian frontiers. Even if the Cabinet secures nominal control the foreign minister or. Hirota could do Little to give effect to the moderate foreign policy of which he and his present colleagues presumably approve.

Hughes outspoken Sydney saturday. The practice of birth control was tre chantly attacked by the minister of health or. Hughes in an interview today. In which he said that one of the fundamental needs of Australia today was an increase in population. Admittedly said or. Hughes the falling birthrate is today a phenomenon common to All Western Peoples but Here where there is no congestion of population and almost unlimited possibilities for expansion our need for More people is at once imperative and Irenc while economic conditions no doubt act As a deterrent Here As Well As in less fortunately situated countries yet there is no question that in Australia economic conditions Are not the principal cause of the use of contraceptives and the widespread unwillingness to accept parental responsibilities. The literature circulating unhindered throughout1 this Community seeking openly As a commercial proposition to persuade Leople to adopt birth control is.

This is a great task far beyond the Jower of achievement by political action alone. The Aid of religious readers and indeed of All leaders of Public thought is needed to educate Public opinion. Insofar As government action can in courage people to Bear children by lessening economic deterrents it is essential that action should be taken. Anything which discourages child searing whether it is Burden of Taxa Tion Cost of Hospital nursing and medi Al attention or limitations on pay nent of maternity allowance will have o be examined thoroughly with a View o its alteration or.

It was confidently stated today in usually Well informed quarters that Bank fixed Deposit rates will be increased next week by i per cent. At least one big Bank is expected to announce its new rates on monday and in this event other Banks can be expected to follow suit with Little de Lay in. Order not to lose deposits. H Deposit rates Are raised advances rates will have to follow sooner or later. This is a sequel to the common wealth Bank s announcement yester Day tint it intends to sell �1,000,000 of Treasury Bills at 134 per cent. Amounts.

This in turn affects their ability to Grant Loans. The victorian associated Banks met yesterday and further discussions took place today. It is understood that victorian Banks while believing that interest rates must shortly go higher in a natural sequence of events would prefer to wait and see the effect of the Commonwealth Bank s operations before raising their Deposit rates. On the other hand the immediate raising of the rate for three months deposits from 1% to 2 per cent May seriously affect applications for the Bills at 1% per cent the Rise in interest rates will be the first Tor five years and it would mean that the Bank interest rates have turned the Corner and that the end of the policy of cheap Money and plentiful credit is in sight the Commonwealth Bank s decision to absorb Cash by a process of Selling Bills is deflationary although the amount involved is Small.
