Miyaoka formerly was Charge d' Af

Embassy in Washington and is re

"In this great war." continued Mr.
Miyaoka," it is whispered here and

republicanism versus monarchism.
The people of the United States are
the last people on earth to deny to
another people the right to choose for
themselves. Is not Germany s denial
to some of the unfortunate people un
der her sway of the right to choose
their own sovereignty, one of the
crimes which we hold her responsl
ble? The United States went into
the war because the German warfare
against commerce was a challenge to
all mankind. It is for the vindication
of human right that this nation Is
stirred to the core.
"When it is suggested that Japan
is misplaced in this War because this
is a war of democracy against mon

German propaganda. Germany is de
termined that Japan and the United
States shall not be friends; Germany
today is sowing the seeds of mistrust
between us with the same insistance
that has marked her activity in that
direction ever since Japan has become
a factor to be considered in world
politics. If you will recall with what
punctilious observance of the rules of
civilized warfare Japan fought her
