NEW YORK REALTY DAZZLES JAPS.
HAS Japan en eye on New York real estate?
An interesting article in tha Japan Weekly Chronicle
of Kobe dtoouese a book recently published in Tokio by a
Japanese, Okamoco Y onsen, with th title "Real Estate In and About
Sew York OHy. The author in so many words strongly urge his
countrymen to invest their money in land in end about Greater New
York. Hs devotes page sfter pags to describing the marvellous ex
pansion of the dry during the Isst eighty year and give many in
stances of the incredible rie in value of various parcel of land. He
shows how the am axing march of th eitv's development ha con
verted farms and country places into crowded business centres. He
waxes eloquent over the chances for a poor man to become nch by
th sfanpis process of buying land and holding it
He oompares land value in tare great cities. He find land
in the City of Nsw York valued at 48,800 yen ($84,300) per Uubo
(36 square feet); in London, 24,000 yen ($12,000) per Uubo, anil
in Osaka, 1,000 yen (WOO).
In spits of these enormous relative values in New York Mr.
Okamoto is surs that m the suburbs of the city, whioh are every

yesr utuugul nearer ana nearer so u oneine cenxres, were are ,
etui golden ehanoss for tn vestment He takes pains to declare rnci
ilentalxy that the Japanese are wrong tn believing that Nsw Yorkers
Ihing of nothing hot money. On the contrary he finds us diligent,: I
philanthropic and benevolent.
The author's one object is frankly to persuade his countrymen
to Jump in and make big profits in land in and around New York.
He points out that while many foreigner own land hereabouts, Jsp
aness an not among them. Trik may be either because the Japan
ese distrust their Judgirnt e o land value and appreciation, or
beeans they believe their right to own land is uncertain.
In the latter doubt, a the Chronicle suggests, lie the curious
weakness of Mr. Okamoto's advice. The Real Troperty Law of the
State of New York includes an act passed In 1909 which provides
that "any citizen of s State or nation WHICH BY ITS LAWS CON
FERS SIMILAR PRIVILEGB9 ON CITIZENS OP THE UNITED
STATES, may take, acquire, hold and convey land or real estate
within this State in the ame manner and with like effect as if such
person were st the time s eitiren of the United States."
But can uch reciprocity be claimed to xit? Apparently not.
A law wa indeed promulgated in Japan in April, 1910, which nom
inally gave to foreigner the right to own real estate in Japan. bestowed
But thii law oontained a clause specifying that an imperial ordinance
should be necessary to put the sot into effsot No such ordinance
has yet been or is likely to be forthcoming. In any case the law
sa it stood contained most drastic restrictions and exceptions as to
residsnce, special permissions, expropriations, ftc, which wonld
make anything like reciprocity in realty ownership laws between the
United States and Japan out of the question.
The Japanese journal, in fact, admits that the proposed Japan
ese alien ownership law Is "a most illiberal enactment" that this
whole matter is in depressing confusion and that "reurpiuctty is al
most as blessed a word in Japan os Mesopotamia, and about aa
Bo it may be some time yet before New York has to get used to
absentee landlords in Chrysanthemum Land.

"Then the other mourned him as the DEAD and MARRIED are
"For marriage is a kniff that cuts friendship ; and never lived there a

"'Yea, verily! But come and dine at mine house and I will introduce

"Thereupon the Bachelor sought to converse of books and sports and the
latest operas. But he found that the Married Man knew them not; for

"And when they came unto the house of the Married Man the Bachelor
