CANADA PICKED
FOR PARLEY ON
JAPANESE PACT
Lloyd George to Cross Atlantic
for Conference
With Premiers.
WILL MAP OUT POLICY
Views of Provinces to Be
Considered in Reviewing
Treaty.
<B\ I'RKDKRIC WILLIAM WILE.)
"op J right, 192U, by Publu Ixdj-r Co.!
I am able to make the important
announcement that the various premiers
of the British Kmpire are
shortly to meet on North American
soil to discuss the matter of renewing
the Anglo-Japanese treaty of
alliance. Uoyd George, Prime Minister
of Great Britain and Ireland,
will cross the Atlantic for the purpose.
if political conditions permit,
arcompanied by Karl Curzon, the
British Foreign Minister, and other
members of the Government.
The conference, which will he
unique in the annals of the British
Kmpire. will be held in Western
' anada. probably at Vancouver or
* ictoria. British Columbia. Both
'he United States and Japanese govrrnmtnts
have been informally notified
of the meeting.
"Visit M itBhlnctnii.
If l.loyd fieorge is able to attend
't. he will be invited to visit this
country a* the guest of the nation,
and he correspondingly welcomed at
Washington. The date of the conleren.'e
has not yet been fixed, but
' will be held before the end of
IV". October is suggested as a
probable date.
The following British premiers
M '11 Participate in the conference,
nhich will be the Brit occasion
lhat such an imperial council has
ever been held anywhere except in
the capital of the empire:
J'avid Lloyd George. Premier of
the United Kingdom.
Sir Arthur Meighen. Premier of
?'anada.
William M Hughes. Premier of
Australia.
B. A. Squires. Premier of Newfoundland
W F. Massey. Premier of New
Zealand.
General John <\ .Smuts. Premier
f South Africa.
Province View* Invited.
It is expected that other British
premiers, of lesser rank than the
Big Six namely, the prime ministers
of individual Canadian "provinces*
like British Columbia and
Manitoba and Australian "States"
like New South Wales and Queens
land?will also attend. Some of
them are of high rank in imperial
affairs and speak for those particular
portions of British dominions
which have the keenest interest in
tn^ Japanese question. The people
?i British Columbia and Australia,
for example, are perhaps more intense
in their anti-Japanese feeling*
than the inhabitants of California.
The Anglo-Japanese treaty of alliance
has been extended automatically
for one year. The conference
f British premiers will deal with
tiie special interests of various
members of the Empire, which have
long been insisting upon a more
direct voice in the framing of British
policy toward Japan than they
were vouchsafed when the original
treaty Mas made in 1905 and renewed
in 1911.
Note* Suppressed.
No decision has as yet been arrived
at with regard to publishing
th^ recent American Japanese diplomatic
correspondence over Japanese
aggression in Siberia. Secretary
Colby has explained that tho
correspondence would only be made
public by "mutual agreement." An
impression has got abroad in Washington
that the fear of undesirably
explosive discussion in both countries
accounts for the suppression
or the correspondence. It was annourxced
at the State Department
yesterday that the question of a
reply to the Japanese note is now
under consideration.

INV ESTIGATE THIS
"The best bargains in real estate
today." said a well know,
real estate man yesterday,
"are well constructed buildings
erected ten or a dozen years ago.
Construction cost has doubled
in the last fifteen years."
There is advertised toda> on
the classified page a three-story
brick building erected ten yean
ago in the colored section. It ia
an excellent location for a colored
physician or dentist. It has
just been listed for sale but will
undoubtedly be snapped up
quickly by a realty bargainseeker
as the price quoted is
about one-half of the original
cost of construction. Bead details

turned his back upon the hous*

a contrary direction.

Michael, in so potent a voice that
the disturbed on* wheeled around
with a somewhat chagrined
laugh.
