Where Pearl Harbor Comes in With

Washington, Jan. 21. It Is under
stood that tomorrow tho war depart

report urging that all tho const tie-

If thin reiiort proves truo It will ho re

A reiwrt calling for nn Immedlnto
appropriation of $3,835,000 for fortify
ing Sjii I'odru hnrhor was sent to con
Kress today hy tho general staff of
tho nrmy. Coming as It docs when
there Id moro or less talk of possible
trouble with Japan it Is considered to
ho almost sensational in Its Insistence
for eatly nctlon and In Its conclusion
that unless San Pedro ho fortified an
mein might take the hntbor and uso
It for n hase of operations against tlfo
entire I'nciflc coast and tho Panama
canal. The report distinctly montlons
"ii certain oriental iiower" without giv
ing tho name of that power.

Tim report says that, unfortified as
It Is, Snn Pedro offers on excellent op
Krttmlty for on enemy to operate
against the Pacific coaBt.
"Itccent study discloses tho fact,"
says thi' report, "that, assuming there
w.-n no olfcctlto naval opposition, a

through It tho entlrn Ui Am"

The reiort b stress upon the rich
ness of the country adjacent to the
harbor nnd declares that It could sup
port n population of 4,000,000. It Ik
pointed out that Umlaska or Pearl
I'.irhor, both of which could bo seized
by tho "enemy from tho orient,". are
within striking dlstanco of San Pedro.
Good Bate for Enemy.
"It is apparent that so far as loca
tion Is concerned," contlnuos tho re
port, "San Pedro would bo a good baso
for an enemy to opcrnto against our
That It would be practically Impos
rllilo for tho United Statos to regain
possession of tho country after Its
occupation by tho enemy la Minted
nut nnd maps are submitted to bear
out this claim.
"Without fortification," adds tho re
port, "oery addition to tho existing
breakwater, otory increase In tho
width and depth of tho Inner harbor

Defenies is Urged.
Reference Is had to a report made
by what Is known as tho Taft coast
dufenso board of 1906, and In thlB con
nection tho report says:
"Tho changed conditions blnco the
Taft board report that now render tho
fortification of San Pedro harbor Im
perative may bo summed up as fol
lows: "1. Tho development of San Pedro
"2. Tho great potential strength as
an enemy which a certain oriental
power has recently acquired.
"As an additional argument In
rounding out this report, It may bo
btatcd that tho Btiggosttvo effect of
public discussion of war contingencies
upon tho Pacific coast has undoubted
ly been to provoko International an
tagonism of tho gravest character.

to tho president's recommendations
for peaceful methods by which tho ex

"Sir," he exclaimed, "he may suc

ono ominous fact ho can not Induce
tho other government to sign n treaty
of exclusion, and If this quiet method
of preventing tho Influx of this raco

tho passage of an exclusion act would

tho breaking off of negotiation?, but 1

He speculated, however, on what
might happen should tho anti-Japan-cso
feeling, which, ho said, was un
conquerable, take the form that it
took against tho Italians at New Or
