Wo shall show you that, organized

that organization wns formed by these

is, while the real machinery ot their

perpetuating, where neither the pub
lic, Japanese or otherwise, could
check It or put In new officers or put
old ofllceiH out, it also became neces
sary to run the 70,000 Japaneso in this
country, and tn do that they had to
have some kind of an organization
that was fair and legnl on tho face,
so that they could work openly
throughout the country nnd make and
perfect a complete organization
throughout thu Territory, nnd that Is
tho renson the Higher Wngo Associa

and' Hint Is why tho JIJI naturally be

theso men, and the newspaper the
other arm, and working tho two to

ready to strike, they had either
brought every Japaneso In this Tor
iltory into that organization ns u

amongst the Japunese, so that
throughout tho length and breadth of
