CHARLES J. BONAPARTE,
AT FALSE RUMOR
Talk Straight At
NEW YORK. N. V.. Aug. 12. Pub
He denial of tho ott-repeated state
ment that President Roosevelt Is fear
ful or the coming of a war with Ja
pan, was mado by no less a personage
than Thomas J. O'Brien, American
Ambassador to the Mikado's court,
jesterday. He was speaking at a
luncheon glvcu in his houor at the
Hotel Astor by tho Japan Society,
and when ho had finished, an equally
emphatic declaration of peaceful in
tentions was made by Baron Taka
hlra, tho Japanese envoy at Wash
ington. Mr. O'Brlon, In his brief address.
said: "We are of the utmost Impor
tance to Japan, and our market 1b
ulso of the greatest need to them;
thus tho strongest reasons exist for
continual peace and friendship bo-
twecn tho two nations. There Is also
a great market In Japan and a great
trade future there for this country.
"Tho President of tho United
States believes that there Is no dan
ger of war, that there was nothing

ed to Imagine- were ground for wnr
talk, which happily have all died out,
because there was nothing to sup
port them. The President expects the
cordial relations between tho two
countries for ycarB to come to go
along the lines I have mentioned. Use
your influence to Induce patience In
settlement of all questions that may
"While nil Japanese, except labor
ers, may come to tho United States
freoly, it becomes a serious question
to determine where the line may be
drawn between tho cool I o and the
gentleman, but I bellovo the patience
and tho better Judgment of the peo
plo of America and Japan will settle
that question satisfactorily and with
Justice to both."
.Baron Takuhlra, following Mr.
O'Brien, referred to the work of Per
flir and other historical features of the
relations between Jipan and the Uni
ted States, and then added:
'Vo have never had an Idea far a
momW of dlsploastug jour people,

Therefore when there were war cries i
raised In some quarters we were slm-1

cries. We then thought that such
unthinkable stories could not exist
long, and we are happy to see that
they have now disappeared.
'If tho Introduction of Japan Into
tho comity of nations by the United
States, with the result now apparent
to ovcry one, should have contributed
to tho promotion of tho general in
terest of all nations, as we are in
clined to believe, all actions hereafter
