Minakuchi yesterday afternoon, in which he cleared away many false impressions and prejudices commonly prevalent reparding tiio^JapaneNie. Dr. Minakuchi soon convinced his hearers that these points o� difference have been greatly magnified, that the jmagined abyss between the cast and vest is not hopeless, and if pains are taken to discover differences, at the same trouble their points of similarity may be found. It is not by mutual fault finding tliat any mutual appreciation of each other may be arrived at. German Propaganda. Dr. Minakuchi declares that a great floal ot the lack of sympathy for aliens and the continual calling attention to the difference between them by yellow journals is the result of German propaganda. The peole ot the west should help the people from the east �with a spirit not ot patronage, which is a product ot imperialism, but with the sympathetic and fraternal spirit of real democracy. The watch word of America is progress, its religion looks toward the future: that of the Far East looks, backwai^at the past. The real foundation of democracy rests on the character of the people themselves; not only m.ust the nation he physically prepared but she must also he mentally and morally pre- Chautauqua Programme Saturday Morning-Mother Goose Chautauqua.

The ne.xt stage must be a fuli recognition ot spiritual alhnity. a recognition that the whole world is akin. A reat cause for apprehension is the plague known as German propaganda in which Germans has been circulating the reports ot a possible war between America and Japan. As an illustration he gave the case ot the Japanese school question in San Francisco agitated by the mayor, named Schmidt, who was later imprisoned. The west has indulged in all manner of allegutioas regarding the entry into the -war, unwilling to recognize England's right to call upon her. But in the Second Anglo-Japanese Al-liaacc drawn up in l&u5 one elaunii provided tiiat it by reason ot qn unprovoked attack on the part of any power the contracting party would come to the assistance of its ally by mutual agreement. Thus England made Jier call upon Japan and Japan could not shirk the responsibilities ot her treaty, which she did not regard as a mere scrap ot paper. In 1911 this treaty was modified to assure Americans that America ha^i no intentions ot dragging England into an American-Japanese war. . War Impossible. The speaker went on to explain how such a war would be impossible. Japan is a poor nation, she has no money .for war. Her national. Indebtedness just after the Russo-Japanese war was $1,225,000,000. So now 35 cents of every dollar earned must gp to the government of Japan for a military tax. The United States is the biggest accreditor ot Japan today. Also the United States is the best and finest customer of Japaii, 65 per cent, of her silks coming from Japan. It would be poor business policy to give up an annual cash trade of $100,000,000. Japan and America are united by tics of friendship. Japan has kept her pledged word with respect to free immigration to America and the result is now that there are more Japanese (paving the western coast than arriving. Regarding the claim ot German propagandists that Japan was the source of yellow peril, was Japan or Germany the source of the greatest peril, the speaker demanded. Japan has never violated any of her international agreements. Her Rus sian prisoners during \hB war were treated so well that many ot them upon their release asked to be allowed to remain in Japan, which -accounts for the early re-estaWishment ot friendly relations between Japan and Russia. He proved, too, that the Japanese wore just as emotional and romantic as the people ot the v/e-it, that they had not the .super-sensibility of wliich they were accuaed but only a senge of righteous indignation. Jap--an's commercial success in Manchuria was quite legitimate and not la -any way underhanded. In order to bring about a reality 6( o\ir national ideas and a reconciliation the East and the West must have one foinmon language, the English language, and one common applied faith, the Christian religion, which should bo the common link between them. At the right time when the great day comes, each nation must be ready to tit into its place and unite in thought and action under the good guidance of the Master. The time must some, con-' eluded Dr. Minakuchi, for "behind the dim unknown standeth God koepiii watch above hia own."
