CHINA BELIEVES IT WILL

What Chinese Newspapers Arc Say

Pleasant Things to Chi
naProspects (Staff Correspondent)
WASHINGTON, I). C, July 29.
Willi the American llaltlo Klcct Bomo
tiling like half-way from Hawaii to
Asia's shores, Interest in high places
In tho reception which it will meet
in China ami Japan Is becoming In
tense. Soma things which until recently
have been known In only a limited
circle, nro beginning to bo mora pop
ularly understood; they explain why
thcro should bo much concern about
tho demonstrations with which the
l'lcet will bo Rrretcd, especially In
Japan and China.
Tho truth Is that tho attitudes of
these two countries toward tho Unit
ed States, and toward each other, nro
liable to bo brouRht more sharply bc
foro tho world In this connection
than they have over been before.
Whllo thcro Is no serious fear o(
any grave embarrassment following
tho demonstration of tho attitudes of
Chlnu and Japan, yet It Is declared
by Orientalists that such embarrass
ment Is not impossible.
Tho pcoplo of China look upon
tho coining of tho I'loot to their
shores as an especial mark of the
good-will of tho United States. Moro
than this, because they know dimly
that relations between tho Unite)
States nnd Japan have recently been
uncomfortablo nt times, nnd because
China has a great fear of being con
quered by Japan, tho Chinese have
Instinctively yearned to mnko com
mon cnuse with tho United States.
They have been ready to attach
undua significance to tho visit of tho
Ticet In tho Kast.
Popular opinion In China for
thcro Is beginning to bo soma popu-
, lar opinion In recent years ronsld-
crR tho Fleet's appearance, on the
Asian littoral as, first, u guarantees
of tho friendship of tho United States
for China, nnd, second, n suggestion
to Japan of the power of America.
Think America Friend
Tho Chinese for several reasons
have recently como to look upon
America na their best friend. In tho
first pl.ii'o, tho Initiative of this Oov
crnmont, In tho famous Hay propo
sals which brought tho rowers Into
nn agreement for tho preservation of
Chinese territorial Integrity, con
vinced tho Chlncso that America waB
their slncci o frlond.
They had never had reason to fear
tho exploitation of their country by
Americans; they bad learned to fear
almobt every other Power's intentions
In that regard.
Tho return of the American sharo
of tho Iloxcr war Indemnity streng
thened the Impression that tho Unit
ed States was u real friend. Then,
on tho occasion of Secretary Tuft's
recent trip around tho world, It is
now known, ho gavo somo highly
gratifying assurances to lending men
of China concerning tho willingness
of tho United States to stand by tho
position It had taken In tho affair of
tho Hay nolo concerning Chinese au
All theto things have caused China
to turn to tho United States us her
ono reliable, friend. Pcoplo who
have recently been In tho Kast say
tho extent of this feeling would sur
prise tho wholo world, If it were gen
crnlly known. Thus thcro is cspo
clal impoitnnco In tho recent devel
opment of organs of public opinion
In tho empire.
Newspapers for America
At tho time, of tho iloxcr war thcro
were three Chinese newspapers In tho
empire. Thcso had little circulation
Mid wcro practically without powor
of national or oven local sentiment.
Today there nro well-nigh n thou
sand newspapers scattered nil ovor
tho country, and they nro cultivating
tho national good-will for America In
tho most assiduous fashion.
illustrating this sentiment, a re-
cent trnvolcr In China picked up a
copy of it newspaper published In a
far Interior city a plaro about as
far from Pcklu as Denver Is from
New York; u city of a half million
pcoplo, whoso name would bo un
known to America. In It, ho was
told, was an editorial on relations of
Chlnn and the United States. To
mnko sure of his translation ho had
it translated by two Chinese schol
ars, entirely Independent of each oth
er, nnd they mado tho samo story of

It was Rtated that the Emperor of
America had commanded to tho wa

vol force In tho world. Tho fleet was
even then on Its wny. It was coming
because tho Umpcror of America had
learned of the hostile Intentions of
Japan toward China, nnd ho propos
ed, as the first friend of China, to
take this method of notifying Jnpan
that tho American nation would not
permit Interference with Chlnn!
This publication would not bo es
pecially significant if It wcro not that
the rnmc sort of thing Is being fed
to tho pcoplo by the newly founded
papers all over tho empire. Thcso
newspapers nro under close govern
mental supervision nnd Inspiration,
nnd It Is frankly understood that tho
governmental Influences nro respon
sible for the systematic cultivation of
friendly feelings for tho United
This development of nmlty In Chl

States probably Is prepared to opposo
vigorously any demonstration by Ja
