WHAT JAPAN FROM CHINA SEEKS It would now appear that the only countries 'on the globe that will be iree from the scourge of war are the repuKics of South America and the United States. As far as the South American republics are concerned, they may- enter into combat eacn other: at any moment, though there are no clouds on the horizon at present. Revolutions are common there, and an uprising'may tak have the veto minte, railway and dock concessions "japan shaH, in cooperation with China control the Han-yang iron works, Ta-yeh iron mines and Ping siang ccllieries." _ Japan's apology for its attitude ii based on its claim that it is China protector from the aggressiveness o other nations, for this writer says: -If force be the foremost factor propping.

The Grits are credited with many pe- culiarities, but they have not got to aughing in any other place than where the Tories laugh. r The most fitting words for Canada at this moment can be found, says the Winnipeg Free Press, in the Oettjra-, burg address, slightly changed: "It is for us, the living, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought have thus far so nobly advanced-It is for us lwre dedicated to the great task remaining before us: that from these honored deaa we take increased devotion- to that cause for which they, gave the last full measure of devotion.

In the Sunset Magazine for May there appears a timely article on "The Chinese Policy of Japan." The author -is a Japanese, and naturally it is a strongly pro-Japanese statement -of the situation. This writer recalls that "when the government at Washington, as an aftermath of the San Francisco Aiool incident, approached Tolrio v with a vien to restiict Japanese im- migration, thj late Marquis Komura. then Foreign minister, virtually pro- -.claimed to the ivorid thai the Japan- ese -would'strive to solve the embar- rassing problem of surplus population Jn countries cf his kindred races, and emigrants would go ehiefly to Jlanchuria and China." Then 'this writer goes on >to point mil that "to this proclamation neither the Anenean goternment or people had the 'Ight or dot-re to object.
