" t I cannot countenance by silence
ar unworthy reflections upon the scr

The statement says In part:
It has been called to the attention
,thf Mich 'internment at Tokloandto
Hastern countries, Including China,
!l nglmng and the Philippines, as well
u in the Clu Istlan countries of Kurope
.mil America, that sross misstatements
' fact Ii.im- been made relative to the
.im.lilstratlon of civil and military af
" 'n this political dtvison of the
rniplie. It woutl seem that the malicious
hialenn'iiis have made It appear as It
ii' ( mplre of .lap.m was conducting
a 'bin the borders of Corea a war of
"tl persecution upon the Inhabitants
ho have embraced the Western form
r religion, and It has been asserted
that the Government In Its ndmlnUtra-
'oii has shown Itself opposed to the
l hristlitn Chinch.
"These falsehoods hae been pub
llshed Industriously throughout the
mainland of Asia and It has so hap
pened that the present representative
of Japan's power In Corea, the General
Count Commander In Chief, has seen
with his own eyes tianslatlons made of
these false articles published In the,
press of .Shanghai, Hongkong and
Calcutta. I am of the opinion that
these same untruths have very likely
been repeated In the Journals of Lon
don, St. Petersburg and other cities
of Kurope and America.
"It Is not possible, neither Is It cnlld
for, that the Administration take upon
itself to particularize In the denial of
hese wilful and untruthful statement".

quate and detailed reply to such special
incidents as are alleged to have tuksn

further I ascertained that the military
anil police olllclals huvlng charge of
Mich matters were Ignorant of the re
llKlous lews and practices of thi
greater number of the prisoners.
"Some exceptions to this getieial
statement must be noted, to wit: That
the Government olllclals did discos or
In several Instances, notably those ot
the Christian Girls School, the white
society ami the lie'dotig Church, that
native converts were In league ngnlnst
the Government, And further the fact
that a number of the prominent per
sons apprehended on charges of t.(,n
splracy were also prominent Corean
Christians had a tendency In certain
quarters perhnps to create the Impres
sion that the Administration pollco were
seeking out only malcontents who be
limned to tho churches of the mission
aries. "Another fact may be cited: Tha
Christina missionaries, who were nil
powerful In court and olllclal circles be
fore the mining- of the Imperial pro
tectorate, were obliged to fall from
their place of great Inlluence, for the
administration of Japanese law Is
neither n matter of sentiment nor In
fluence. I would not want to say
that the old Corean regime was handi
capped by the presence and Influence of
foreigners, for 1 hnve no relations with
that subject: but tho present admin
istration has its own officials for the
performance of certain prescribed
duties In certain ways nnd Is not In
dulgent to tho extent of iwrmlttlng out
"The administration has Its own
views as to tho proper methods to bo
pursued In the creating of peace. In
dustry nnd prosperity within the shores
of this pollttral division, and It has no
desire for the advice or Interference
from any channels other than those
purely official and superior.
Atisnrrn Crneltj- ('hnrico.
"It has been widely published and as
serted that cruel and unusual means
have been adapted by the administra
tion toward the masses of the Corean
people and that It was apparently the
desire of the Government to drive the
native Inhabitants from their country,
to the end that natives of Japan be In
stalled In their places.
"So far as this bare statement Is con
cerned 1 nm disinclined at first thought

among the peoples of the world I shull
make nnswer In these terms:
"First, Japan knows It Is her duty
to bring this political division up to n
worthy plane of activity and Industry.
"Secondly, she Is spending millions of
cold and the time of thousands of of
ficials, civil and military, to accom
plish this end.
"Thirdly, the nations are watching
carefully the progress of civilization In
"With these three things in mind it
must be understood that unless the na
tive Corean Indicates by his ability and
enterprise his desire to keep nbreast
of the new order of things, which
means progress, he will have only him
self to blame if he falls behind.
"All civilized nnd progressive- na
tions have pursued In the past and are
to-day pursuing the same . ethods and
tactics. Gnat lirltaln sets a plane or
standard In India, Egypt and other
places; the French declare their own
standard In north Africa, tin- t'nlted
States In the Philippines, Germany, Bel

possessions. The Inhabitants of these

"The political district of Corea Is a
large territory and Is capable of th.
support of many millions of people.
Hut the industries of the country must
be made In keeping; agrlcultuie must

putting her great enterprises Into op

Beginning Today, Tenth Anniversary Offering of
Men's Fine Silk Neckwear
at extraordinary savings on ordinary prices
J The 13,200 silk scarfs in this great neckwear event have been
furnished by three prominent makers who supply our regular neck
wear stocks, and who have made these very liberal concessions on
the theory that one good turn deserves another.
6,000 silk scarfs in
styles ot the season.
All large open ends, in
plain colors, effective fig
ures, and the newest com
binations. In fact, all the
new Fall patterns, in the
following colors: Navy,
brown, royal, tan, gray,
hello, purple, and green.
A wonderful selection of
designs, and a saving which
is big enough to warrant
consideration even on the
purchase of a single scarf.
values 1.00 to ZOO
6,000 all silk scarfs
that arc the acme
of good values
! There arc the latest
striped effects, scores of
exclusive patterns in fig
ures, and a brilliant assem
blage of colorings that arc
solid but never plain. Re
gal repps, soulful satins,
artistic armurcs, supcrsmart
surahs, gentlemanly grcs
grains, and in fact all of
those rich and fashionable
silks which are considered
attributes of dress.
values 1.50 to 2.50
1200 knitted scarfs
that arc the biggest
values ever knitted
J From a maker who has
a reputation for the finest
kind of knitted neckwear,
and they arc worthy exam
ples of his art. These .scarfs
arc accordcon or two color
effects, with knitted cross
stripes which show both on
the knot and below it. Col
ors arc blue, tan, gray,
hclio, purple, red and green..

Mens Mocha Gloves
Cj The Mocha glove is in a class by itself.
Every season it grows more popular.
This year you cannot buy it everywhere
even at 1 .50, though today you can buy
it at 1. 1 5 at Saks'.
3 A real Mocha, too. Not a number
two company playing the provinces.
But a fine, genuine Mocha, bluish
gray in color, and soft as the down on
a woman's cheek. Stylish, distinctive,
suitable for day and dress wear, well
made, comfortable, serviceable, the
equal of kid, and superior to suede.
Avoid Mochas of a pink-and-whitish
cast. They arc as an Oriental rug of
fered on the verandah of a Summer
hotel. Get the blue gray Mocha, and
get it now at Saks' while the price is
low. Regular and cadet fingers.
Men's Silk Hose
values 1.00 to 2.50
I This silk hose is one of the most fa
mous brands on the market. But the
makers have scruples about advertis
ing it at sale prices, so we will leave it
to you to discover its identity, while
we talk about its merits.
I Made of all pure thread silk, with
high spliced heels and double soles and
toes. Some are just plain silk. Others
arc hand-embroidered in the instep.
Still others have hand-embroidered side
clocks. All have silk or lisle soles.
Blacks and whites by the hundreds, and
a host of smart colors, including tan,
navy, gray, purple and green. Soft,
lustrous and beautifully made. You
never in your life had a more profitable
opportunity to stock up with silk hose
of these qualities.
Men's Raincoats at 8.75
actual value 12.50
you certainly have the best of this rainy-day argument
3 When you buy a raincoat at Saks', no matter what you pay for it, you are
buying the best raincoat value the town affords. You can bank on its work
manship and rainproof qualities, and nine times out of ten you will find that
it costs less at Saks' than elsewhere. All of which is by way of introducing
