OPEN DOOR IN MANCHURIA.
i Voltaire once cynically ait that wli.it was known ns lite I My Roman
Empire, was not Holy, was not Roman, 'and was not an Empire,1 He
llius condctKcd in idea the thought tint had' existed for one thousand years,
nnd the 1 loly Roman Empire did not cease- 'to exist in thought until the
year one thousand eight hundred and six.
In trying to think of China today, the same thing obtrudes itself on the
mind of thoughtful people. China is regarded' in 'thought as an Empire.
It consists of sixteen provinces united together in 'a 'mystic way, but even that
has been dissolved. The nominal head of Iorthcrn'' China is Yuan Sluh
Kni, whose power devolved upon him on the resignation of the Manchu
Dyn.nty. The Southern Chinese do not recognize him, but give such al-
' legiance as they have to Dr. Sun Yet Sen. . '
Each privincial governor rules his own province as seems to him most
fitting. Foreign consuls officially deal with the governors from the fact
that there is no Central authority.
r' Ttadc goes on, because the Chinese arc born merchants. There is no
Central authority in China, either dejurc or dcfatlo, recognized by foreign
States. Indeed, China is at the present time politically amorphus. In a
, political science seme, China today is not a state, because it is not organ
ized through constituted authorities that command the respect and loyally
01 us own people, nor me commence 01 torcign nations. It is nmply a
nation of four hundred millions of people, all more or Jess akin in blood, in
their manners and methods, but such a nation is not, in the true sense, a
state. It is unique in the history of nations. What is to be the outcome,
no political prophet can predict.
One of the most important parts of the former Empire is Manchuria, be
cause that province is one of the most fertile in all China, and has the least
reputation cr square mile.
Those nations closest to Manchuria, in fact, on the ground as it were,
arc Japan and Russia. By geographical position and by commercial nctcs
sity, it is of more vital interest to Japan than to Russia.
For a long lime past, Manchuria has furnished the Japanese people one
of the most important elements in their food, that is, the bean. Beans of
various kinds furnish to the Japanese dietary those elements of nitrogen
and cathon that arc furnished to Western nations largely by meat. With
Japan's increasing population and complete inadequacy of the home food
supply, Manchuria becomes of primary importance to the Japanese people.
Therefore, in international relations about the trade of Manchuria, Japan,
i from necessity and by physical force, will be the chief power to be consid-
crcd. This province is of considerable interest to Russia as lying along her
, southern border of Siberia, but it is not by any means of the necessary im
portance to Russia as it is to Japan. So it would seem that, whatever may
be agreed to on paper or upon literary diplomacy, Japan and Russia will
have, and mmt have the preponderating1 influence, politically and commer
cially in this vast and fertile part of tthc Chinese Empire.
Of course, they mut make it appear that there will be an "open door"
to the trade of other nations; but the "open door" business is more of a
literary sop to the commercial conscience than a potential trade factor.
The United States is looking with a concerned eye on her future trade
with Manchuria. The raw and partly finished materials exported to Man
churia. and even to Korea, must be largely bought in the United States.
And, therefore, it would logically appear that America and Japan, by
proper' and skillful unwritten agreements and concessions, should gradually
absorb' most of the trade of Manchuria. Japan has little raw material, and
to1 make finished products, comparatively little skill. But she can get from
her. great neighbor across the water, both unfinished and finished products,
which she can prepare for the Korean and Manchurian markets, thus sat
isfying her own ability to obtain food supplies from Manchuria, and to sat
isfy. the trade propensities to hcr great neighbor across the water. Al least,
the situation in North China is of subtle and absorbing interest to all the
great naloins producing goods for sale abroad.

THAT ALErVA CONTRACT.
On Monday, April 22, tho 11 tt 1 1 c-
tln received a communication from
u subscriber asking' for Information
regarding tho Alown road contract
nnd In order to get all the facts the
communication was unlit to the Super
intendent nf Public Works, so that ho
could read It nnd glvo a complete an
swer. Tho Superintendent stated to
tho 11 n 1 1 o 1 1 n roportor tho reason
for tho contract having been let fin
ally at n price1 htghcr than that for
which rtrst tenders Had been called
and the prices obtained, but he did
not stnto why tho specification., had
been changed bo ns to require n wider
road. Tho communication ami tho
statement In reply to tlio subscriber's
request wcro as follows:
AMIWA HKIUHTS HOAD
UNDDH NIJW Sl'KCiriCATION
L'dltor Hienlng Bulletin
When tho Superintendent of Pub
lic Works first called for bids on
Alewa HclglitA road, W. A llurdy
put In n bid, nccompnnicd with u
certified check, to build tho 2100
feci of road for tho sum of $.ri467,
or nt n rato of $2.60 per running
V. M. Pond nt t tic same tlmo
put an allorti.ito bid to build tho
MOO feet of upper road for (.1.2i"i
per foot and $2.25 for the COO feet
of lower road.
Ilotli bids wcro thrown out
right nway, with tho excuse that
they were too high.
In yesterday morning's paper I
noticed that tlm Alcnn HclghM
road contract had been awarded
to (Ionics & Co. Tor a set tiiico of
$:i.Cl per running foot.
Honolulu, April 22, 1012.
Superintendent Campbell when
seen ns to this matter tills
morning stated that tho tenders
referred to In tho letter wcro
in nccordanco with different
specifications. Tho contract let
to (Ionics & Co. for tho present
work calls for a wider and bet
ter road, new specifications
having been drnyjii up. Why
the specifications should bo
changed after tenders hud been
called and prices secured, Is not
know n. Kdltor Hull o 1 1 n.
On tho following day tho Superin
tendent of Public Works gnvo out an
Interview In which ho Is represented
ns speaking of tho Bill lot In as
"This Is another ' ovldenco of
dcllbornto fabrication on tho part
of tho Iltillotln. Tho innuendo con
veyed In the note by tho editor is
false, nnd only in keeping with
tho other ntlacks on mo. The
plnns and Hpcclllcatlons for tho
Alowa rond wcro prepared by thd
County Knglncer, nnd thero woro
no changes made In them."
It appears from this that tlio Sup
erintendent of Public Works Immed
iately Jumps nt tho conclusion that
tho I) ii 1 1 o 1 1 n 'suggests a change,
in the specifications after tlio final
contract was let, all of which If ho
had taken tho trouble to rend tho com
munication carefully ho must havo
Been was entirely unjustified. Tho
innuendo Is puicly Mr. Cainpboll's
Imagination. Tho natural question of
tho communication ns to why, after
londers had been called nnd rejected
because they "wero too high,"
tha contract was let under
the specifications changed so ns to
give, an apparently mora expensive
road for Alowa Heights, has not yet
been answered. It was therefore, and
still Is, necessary for tho editor of
tho Iltillotln to stnto that the
'reason for tho change, of specifications
was not known.
Tho Superintendent of Public
Works Is evidently bo overworked
that ho can't read nnythlng that
comes to hi in from the II u 1 1 o 1 1 n
with nil unbiased mind. This Is un
fortunate ns It causes him to draw
swift and unjustified conclusions
about himself and gives the Impres
sion that ho Is suffering from llatu
lenco of tho brain.
