lounnclor of Japan was tlio victim o f a plot carefully laid by Koreans
living In San Kranclsco. These mo n are members of the Korean "Klght

sociated with them.
Tho most extraordinary feature about the wliole affair Is tho fack of
precaution which Stevens took. It e was savagely attacked In the Hotel
Knlrmount tho evening before his lu tended departure for Washington.
Although tho Koreans who attneke il him wero quoted by tho papers us
saying they would gladly hac Mil M him, Mr. Stevens went to tho
Kerry without guard nnd'wlthout weapon. When lie was struck down
with a revolver that missed Are, h did not then apparently realize that
his life was In danger. When he w no lying In tho hospital Mr. Stevens
said to tho man vyho shot hlni, "l don't blame o for shooting me. You
nro a little fool and don't, know anv In Iter. I hope the tlmo will come ,
when you and tho Utile fools like ymi will rcallzo what you have trloU
