Probation for Perhaps no course pcrsued by the Coun-
minor offenders. ty Attorney moans so much good to tho
community as the plalfi recently adopted to allow tho minor olTon
dors to go free after, convi.-tiou of misdemeanors and requiring
them to report to a probation officer regularly for a long period.
It is the belief among these who are in the best position to know
that many young people are made criminals for life by the harsh
ness of our laws rather than reformed by them by carrying out
the letter of the law and requiring them to serve a sentence for
some boyish prank that was done in sport or without due thought,
rather than with the intention of committing a criminal act.
The plan adopted will give those whose conduct after the com
mission of a misdemeanor an opportunity to escape punishment by
good conduct but requiring those who will not profit by the warn
ing to suffer the full penalty of the sentence.
That there will be some disappointments is to be expected. On
the whole the plan will doubtless be found for the betterment of
the community and will make better men of those who are charg.
ed with an offence.

Foreigners in Japan.
We print the following taken from
the Star. According to an article
published in the New York Herald
under date of December 30, the Jap
panese are making demands for
rights in the United States which
they refuse to accord to Americans
and otyer foreigners living in Japan.
The letter was written by a man who
claims to be an American. The
Herald in publishing it says:
The Herald has received from
Japau a letter, the writer of which
say3 he is an Atnericau citizen, a re
publican in politics, and that he has
been in business in Japan for more
than twenty years. In that time, he
says, he has made numerous trips to
the United States and has kept in
touch with affairs here. He asserts
therewould be more letters ofa similar
nature sent from Japan to the Unit
ed States if it were not for the 'con
stant espionage which foreigners re
sident in the i-iand empire have to
endure. Foreigners, he says, are
well aware that their servants keep
constant watch on their movements
and report to the authorities. The
"There are but a few of us out
here, and at t!mes we feel as though
our mother country was making a
great mistake when dealing with
Oriental propositions. One must
live with these peoule to really know
them and understand what their
thoughts are of the future.
"Now that the San Francisco
school question is before us, kindly
permit me to place befoie yen the
position of Americans in Japan. The
Japanese demand equal rights. Here
is our position in Japan: ' ,
"We are here for business. There
fore knowing the people, we do as we
are told. Otherwise it is wise to
leave the country.
"We are not allowed to own real
property or to have any mining
rights. We can only buy certain
securities. We cannot hold Japanese
on certain mortgages. When in or
der to do business ws place certain
properties or securities in the name
of a Japanese, and the said Japanese
absconds, the courts will not even
consider his act a criminal one.
"We are not allowed to attend
Japanese schools, old or young.
"We are only permitted to reside
in certain sections.:
"Such a simple thing as sailing a
private pleasure boat is restricted.
We cannot leave the treaty port un
Ices with a permit, and it is next to
impossible to secure such a permit.
The Japanese go anywhere desired
but a foreigner cannot ,enter any
port of Japan (except the regular
open ports) from the water front.
"At the theatres the Japanese rate
is sixty sen. No foreigner is admitt
ed under two yen (200 sen.)
"The hotels are on a similar basis.

"It is a known fact that justice
cannot be .had except in the higher
courts and every case against a
foreigner is carried to the Suprfcme
Court before justice is given. The
Legation at Tokio knows this point
only too well.
"In taxes foreigners pay double
the rates paid by the Japanese.
"The treaties state positively that
foreigners shall not be subject to war
taxes or duties. Thev were levied
just the same, and we did not think
it wise to raise an objection. But
the facts are as stated
"The simple fact is that the Jap
anese do not want foreigners here,
and are doing everything within their
power to drive them from the coun
try. The reason the true tacts are
not generally known is that every
foreign resident is watched and it is
not policy for him to state such facts
"Permit me to repeat a conversa
tion heard several days ago which
really prompts this letter. On the
last steamer for San Francisco, the
Nippon Maru, about eighty soldiers
embarked. Dinning at a tea house I
happened to occupy a room adjoining
the barguet room, where about one
hundred Jnpanesc had assembled.
During the dinner a major of the re
giment the soldiers belonged to made
a brief speech, part of which 1 jotted
down at once.
"He slated that while his comrados
were leaving the land of the rising
sun they must always remain loyal
to their Emperor and they must re
member that the late war gives
them a gra d education in how to
handle an enemy. They weie told
not to forget that Hawaii was but a
stepping stone to the mainland, and
that when they reached the mainland
they must not forget that the Pacific
belonged to Japan; that while the
United States pretended to be friend
ly with Japan at present it was only
because they were afraid of Japan
In conclusion he adjured them to re
member that a good soldier in the
land of the enemy was worth ten at
"It is needless to write more. This
expresses the thoughts of these peo
"It is common talk that the Jap
anese will ultimately control Hawaii
even without military conquest. Thev
can, if necessary wait until enough
children born in the islands become
ot age to vote, if Japanese are not
allowed the right of citizenship, be
forehand. If allowed the riyht of
citizenship, with privilege of voting,
they will then send coolies over oy

such as the house tax, recently de
cided in favor of the foreigners. The
United States decided not to enter
this dispute stating they considered
the Japanese were right. But the
Japanese press wrote many uncom

plimfntary remarks about us when
The Hague finally decided in favor of
the other countries and the United
then came in and asked for equal
rights under tho favored nation
clause. The other Powers went to
all the exprnso of fighting, and had
t jiot been for their subbornness we
would now be paying upward of 200.
000 yen annually that would have
been contrary to treaty.
"Plersa do not decide this Jap
anese question too soon. The United
Slates within the next twenty years
will realize that Japan has up-ward
of fifty millions of people and that, it
can spare half of them. If we leave
our doors open to them it will mean a
loss to us of the entire Pacific Ccast.
"A copy of tfiis letter has been
sent to Washington. It will be in-'
dorsed by the majority of the foreign
community residing in Japan, not as
showing their dislike for the Japanese,
but of the one sided manner in which
the Japanese are acting. Foreigners
in Japan stand all of these inconveni
ences, while the Japanese 'kick' when
they have the least provocation.
"Out point seems to be misunder
stood in the United States. There is
as much difference between tho Jap
anese of thu Eastern States or those
in the universities and those wHo are
crowding to the Pacific coast as t.he-e
is between the well bred negro of the
North and the common, routabout or
field hand of the South, who i worth
less and filled with debased ideas.
"The above is written purely from
a patriotic standpoint from one who
knows these ppople only tn well and
their inborn dislike for everything
foreign, unless it means some thing to
their own benefit."
Los Angeleltca Boom Excursion,
All indications show that the ex
cursion from Los Angeles to lilts city
will be auccess. "From our private
advice I am led to belii-ve that the
sleamer which will brii.g the excur
sionists here, will be the Ohio. She is
now in the Alaska. service, and is a
first class vessel in evsry respect. It
had at first been decided to take a
steamer winch had accommodations
for 200 passengers, but so many
applications were received that a
larger vessel had to be secured."
The following article ,in the Los
Angejes Daily Times, Jan. 4, gives an
account of the plans for the excur
sion: The first excursion steamer to sail
put of San Pedro harbor bound for
Honolulu and the Hawaiian Islands,
will bear members of the Chamber of
of Commerce and their friends on a
great pleasure and business junket
to tell the Hawaiian why they should
m.ke the port of San Pedro and the
city of Los Angeles thfir first port of
entry to the United States.
Yesterday the pleasure trip was
definitely decided upon and the follow
ing message was seut to every mem
ber upon a reply-postal card:
"Ho for Honolulu, from San Pedro.
The Chamber of Commerce is arrang
ing an excursion to the islands of
Hawaii and asks if you, your family
