The significant' passages of Mt article read as follows : "To all outside appearances the Chinese revolution has come to an v end, but in reality neither in her internal administration nor in her diplomatic relations, can we see much light ahead. - "Should the powers,., nveantims attempt, to-satisfy their/territorial ambitions at China's cost and take action'it -would mean the dismemberment of that vast empire, and complications/which can not be - foreseen will ensue. -'China cannot be allotted 'among the/powers* as Afi'ica was.' To attempt such a division would be , an operation fraught .with danger because it would vbe certain to give rise to a general clash of conflicting interests. ''" -; - . "Even the preponderant position in Manchuria which Japan obtained as the result of the war with Russia gave rise at one time tb: various surmises and suspicions.

The American people will .then recognize how mistaken they were in harboring doubts regarding Japanese' intentions toward China and Chinese' territories'; If this misunderstanding on the part of some Americans can thus be cleared up and if the present revolu-tidn serves to lead China on ts thc^ road of moral and intellectual rejuvenation and gives Japan an opportunity of realizing her cherished ambition to promote the interests Which she has in common with China,-then a great misfortune Will' have' been turned into a source of happiness: "China is very much like a volcano on the eve of eruption. - Should the eruption take place the disaster will extend all over the world.
