t. f; ' Secretary,
after Bishop Harris left Honolulu
a message was sent to the "Korean
League," o92 Austin avenue, San
Francisco, by Koreans in Honolulu
asking the league to take with Har
ris exactly the course which the
league took with Durham W.
Stevens before he was assassinated.
It will bo remembered that the
Koreans called at Stevens' hotel in
San Francisco with a copy of the
San Francisco Call, asked , him if
his interview in it was correctly re
ported, and when he acknowledged
the interview, attacked him. A
cable message from Honolulu last
Thursday quoted an article saying
Harris had said certain things, and
losed with the words.
"WILL YOU ASK HIM."
The discovery that such a message
had been sent caused considerable
alarm, and long before the Korea
docked at San Francisco this morn
ing, Bishop Harris had cable ad
vices on the subject.
One message was sent from here
to be taken to the Korea by the
pilot telling Harris what he might
The following from the Chronicle
of March 2'd shows how exactly this
course of action tallies with what
was done with Stevens :
' 'A mass meeting of tho Korean
patriotic and education societies of
San Francisco was held and four
prominent members, Eal Lee, C.
K. Chung, Y. M. Moon and U. S.
Choy, all enthusiastic and intelli
gent young men, were appointed a
committee to interview Stevens to
ascertain his viows as expressed in
The four patriots called shortly
after 9 o'clock last night at the Fair
mont while the strains of soft music
floated from the balcony through
the large lobby and the after dinner
groups were engrossed in small talk
in the luxurious chairs. Lee went
to the clerk and asked for Stevens,
who came down stairs to meet the
delegation. He walked with them
to a room at the extreme north end
of the corridor, where the party was
soon engaged in earnest conversa
The spokesman of the committee
was Lee, who speaks the vernacular
fluently. He asked Stevens if ho
had made the statements attributed
to him in the press, and the diplo
matic adviser replied in thcaflirma
tivo. The interrogations took tho
form of a cross-examination, Stevens
being questioned categorically on
each " sentence. He added more
aboutthe great work Japan is doing
for Koreaand how well the Koreans
love the Japanese Government and
policy in their home land."
At this stage of tho interview
Stevens was murderously attacked.
The man who led in the assault,
Eal Lee, gave the following written
City, March 22, 190S. To the
Editor of the "San Francisco
Chronical." Dear Sir: I am a
Korean and my name is Eal Lee
and living at 1351 Grcenwltch
street, city. Although I am not
able to write very well -in English,
I dare to explain to you the state
ment of D. W. Stevens, which was
published in your paper of 21st
inst., on the pago one, under the
title of "Japanese Control a
Benefit to Korea," so tho people
will not be mistaken.
In the fust place, Mr. 'Stevens
said: "Korean people havo been
greatly benefited by Japanese pro
tection and that they are beginning
to look more favorably on it," but
according to what I learned of the
paper from Korea recently, Mr.
Stevens' statement is but a false.
Sinco the Japanese began to con
trol Korea against the Koreans'
will, they killed thousands of thou
sands of people who uxto rightly
resisting them from robbing their
properties and doing cruelties. So
they had to take up arms against
them from all parts of the country,
and they1 are fighting harder still.
To these can neither be called the
benefit of the Koreans since the
Japanese control nor the Koreans
looking favorably on it. In the
second place he said: "That the
Korean peasants have welcomed the
In this place, I can not say that
Mr. Stevens is only wrong, but it is
an untruth ; bpcause tho most Ko
reans in the fight with Japanese are
tho peasants who deserted their
homes and families to join tho
struggle for the safety of tho ilifo of
Korea, which Japan try to take
away from them altogether. Wo
can not believe whatever good the
In the third place, he said, "Japa
nese arc doing for Koreans what
America is doing . for-tho Philip
pines.' At this part of his conversation, I
began to think that he is not a sub
ject of the United States ofjVinerica.
As it is published many times in
your paper what the Japanese are
doing in Korea is barbarious and
they try to kill as many Koreans as
they think will benough to make
room for tho Japanese to live, and
they sent all the coolies to Korea to
fill tho Government positions. I
think ho said these things were there
was no American.
As far as I know, that the Ameri
can policy is not a bit like the Japa
nese in Korea, and I believe the
world recognizes it, too. If the
American iolicy was like the ' Japa
nese in Korea, America would have
never been tho best-honored nation
on the earth, as it is today. I should
think that Mr. Stevens is the one
who has been helping the seven
thieves of Korean government, who
wilfully let tho Japaneso take con
trol of Korea for their own benefit,
without tho knowledge of tho Ko
rean people, and yet Mr. Stevens is

What will be good to Mr. Stevens
if we, the Koreans, become Japans
slaves or be killed all.
If you will only kindly publish
this in your paper, and help us from
heart breaking, I will esteem your
paper as the saver of our lives.
If any question that I have to an
