MONROE DOCTRINF IN ASIA.
TOKIO, May 31. Japan is to
have a Monroe doctrine for Asia
and she will he able to enforce it.
There has been more or less talk
to this effect in European capitals
for somo time, but . there is now
high authority for saying that an
imperial commission, consisting of
tho elder statemen, the chiefs of
the naval and military staff and
others are atwork formulating the
plan and scope of tho doctrine and
methods of its promulgation and
The work has practically been
completed, but no action will be
taken until peace has been com
pleted with Russia or until the
Russians have been driven from
Manchuria. In a general waj the
Japanese propose to hold the same
relation to Eastern and Southeast
ern Asia that tho United States
holds to North and South America.
Existing rights of tho powers will
be recognized, but there can bo no
acquisition of further territory in
Asia by any European or American
The fact of tho existence of this
commission has been kept secret
until in tho jubilation of tho over
whelming success of Togo the
nature of tho work was whispered"
It is also said that France will feel
the first effects of tho new doctrine.
Tho specific case in which Franco
will bo called to answer is tho
recent "rectification" of "tho bound
ary between her Indo-Chinese
possessions and tho Chineso Em
pire. Franco so it is alleged, secur
ed the consent of China in quite
tho usual way to a chango in tho
lines which gave her a rich slico of
Chinese territory. Tho "rectifica
tion," it is said, will not ho recog
nized undor tho Japanese Monroo
Tho feeling in Japan is bitter
against France, which to tho Japa
nese mind has acted throughout
tho war as an active ally of tho
Russians. For the sake of policy
tho Japaneso government has up
to this time contented itsolf with
protests, but in common with other
Asiatics the Japaneso have a long
memory for injuries and no doubt
that Russia's ally will have to pay
well for tho assistance which en
abled Rodjestvensky to reach his
fate at Tsushima.
While tho Japanese authorities
WAILUKU, MAUI, H. T.,
ao absolutely silent upon tho con
dition of the vessels sunk at Port
Arthur, it is on tho very best
authority that no less than five of
tho battleahips have already been
raised and are undergoing repairs,
In fact, it is said in tome quarters
that one or two of these craft took
part in tho recent battlo.
With these five battleships ad
ded to tho five which Japan al
ready had, and tho two captured
at the Liancourt rocks, and which
can easily bo repaired, she will
have availabo within a few months
at the furthermost a battle lino of
twelve modern battleships and
eight big armored cruisers.
THE BATTLE OF TUB KOREAN
LONDON. May 31. Tho Daily
Mail's Tokio correspondent says
that tho captain of the Russian
cruiser Admiral Nakhimoff, who is
now a prisoner, relates the follow
ing story of the battlo between tho
Japaneso and Kussian Meets.
"Wo first saw tho Japanese at G

every fighting ship of a once splen

tured, representing a loss of ton

remaining units of the fleet, con
sisting largely of auxiliaries and
transports, have been dispersed,
some going to Vladivostok and
others to the China coast. Ad

wounded, occupies a cot in a Japa
