following charges against German
propagandists: ,
Adherents of the Kaiser arc
seeking to embroil the United
States in war with Japan.
German agencies have been
established in Shanghai, Yoka
homa and other centres in the
Orient to spread broadcast spur
ious reports about alleged friction
between United Stntcs and Japan.
German editors found guilty of
this oflfenso have been expelled
from Japan. They sought refuge
in Shanghai, whore they are con
tinuing United States-Japan war
.propaganda.
One of spurious reports which
stirred Japan wns that American
fleet of six warships was en route
to Tokio to enforce demands of
Wilson Administration relating to
Chinese treaties.
Germany see1' many benefits in
United Statcs-.Janan war; would
ston munitions shipments to Allies
nnd stop Japan from policing Far
East for England.
,. Tokio Government resisting every
effort to increase ill feeling be

dcslBiicd to stir up feellnB between this
country nnd Jnpnn. A few months nuo
a Clermnn newspaper In Yokohama wns
found utility of such an offense and tho
publisher and his 'staff were forced to
leave the country.
"It Is a slRiiincnnt fact Hint thesn men
who went to ShaiiKhnl nre rontlnuliiK
their work of spreading fnl.se. reports. Ar
ticles nro boliiR sent nut from Pekln
anil Shnmthal for the dnlliillo ptirposp of
embrollliiK this country In war with Ja
pan. It Is my llrm belief Hint much of
this propaganda of dissension Is bclns
financed by the German sources.
"Germany knows the mlvantnRo she
would Rain If she could drive the United
States anil Jnpan Into war. She knows
that It would put a check on shipment of
munitions to tho Allies; she knows that
war would keep Japnn so busy that she
could not protect Ktmlnnd's interest in
tho Orient.
"The American people have never shown
enoUKh uppreclntlon of the fact that tho
peace of the whole of Asia nnd tho free
dom of the Pnclllc Is directly due to the
fact Hint Japiiii promptly and courage
ously kept her part of her treaties with
Kncianil. Without such support It would
be dlllleiilt to Imnttlne that HiiKland would
have been able to eloso the North Sea
with her licet. If the North Sea was
open It Is probable that tho Pnclllc Ocenn
would now he Involved In warfare which
would lie disastrous to American com
merce." Doctor Tausler questioned the report
printed recently that Japan was rcnow
ItiK pressure on China In the matter, of
tho "Ilfth Kroup" of treaties.
