Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LlTHBRIDOl RUSSIAN MANCHURIA A BIG CHECKERBOARD Iu view of the fact that the mur- der b! Prince Ito, Japan's foremost statesman, "was committea in Rus- sian. Manchuria, an excerpt from "The Ferment in by Henry George, Jr.. which appeared in Collier's three weeksjiKO, is very apropos. Mr. George, who is the son of the illustrious sociologist and political economist, was sent to Manchuria to in Manchur- ia, where Japan and Russia are still manoeuvring for control." The ar- ticle says in part: "The South Manchurian road is not extensive as Americans are ac- customed to view railroads about, 700 iniles long. It runs from Port on the south to Changchun on the north, where it meets the Rus- sian broad-gage system. uBuilt by the Russians originally. it was broad-gage until the Japanese took South Manchuria during the re-- cent war, when the latter changed it to narrow gage, which is that used in Japan, from which engines and cars-were brought. After the war. when the road was to be re-equipped it was decided to change the gage to the American standard four feet eight and a half to sup- ply full American equipment. To do this it cost the company in debenture bonds and stock. Be- sides 5 per cent, on the debentures, it paid' six per cent, on the stock last year. "The 'teM of this railroad conces- sion "from China runs for only a doz- en" of a few more-years, at the ex- piration of which China is supposed to have the right of purchase in which event the Japanese must clear out. But will' they clear out It may be put down for a certainty that Japan .jwill never willingly relinquish Port Arthur, over which she fought two wars.' It is plain to the most super- ficial visitor that while the Imperial Government is carefully keeping up and guarding; the fortifications at the harbor mouth at Port Arthur, it has abandoned North Fort and the other forts- on the shoreward side facing north on the peninsula The obvious reason is that Japan never expects to meet an enemy ashore that far south: that any such enemy will be many miles even to Mnktten and that all the territory toot from the during; tfee late war she will hold under her domination, if not as an integral part of the Japanese Empire, as Korea has practically become. Japan re- gards South Manchuria as her defens- ive outpost, and she will" fight to maintain that outpost in a country characterized at once by sloth, indif- ference, confusion, incoherency, cor- ruption, and revolution and which is surrounded by Powers that have al- ready carved out "concessions" and impatiently await an excuse to enter upon the larger partitioning. Changchun, the Transfer Point "The dividing point between Jap- anese Manchuria and Russian Man- churia is "Changchun. It is a night's ride north of Mukden. I had been called at four by the polite little 'Pullman car boy. I can hardly call him porter, since he seemed about the age and stature of the bell boys Tokyo. Even the conductor of. this crack train oh this American equipped South Manchurian Railway "Train to be in the early twenties. At .Chang- chun our train had pulled up against a long platform. 'On the other .side, and precisely parallel with' was the Russian train to which were Were to transfer. "This Russian train belonged to the Chinese Eastern Railway, which runs north to Harbin, and then east and west, connecting '.Vladvostok with the Trans-Siberian line, proper. It forms a kind of widely branching capital letter T, and runs through the back- bone of 'Central and North Manchur- ia. The right of way is only a lim- ited concession to the .Russians by the Chinese Government, but when will the Russians give it up says pretty nearly everybody in the Far East. It means the .shortest obtainable line east to Vladivostok, and it means the command of great North Manchuria territory. "In the interior of the it was evident that I was out of Jap- anese Manchuria. In all the throng, there were .not half a dozen, of '-the Nipponese All the rest were Chinese (mostly big Manchus) and Europeans or, as the Russians would probably. classify Chinese, Russians, and Europeans for the ..Russians com- monly consider and speak of Russia as not belongine; .to, but being apart from, the rest of, Europe.
