Augusta Scoffs at Idea <
The climax of a really grea
in the current session of the 1
Georgia Methodist conference
Friday night at St. John church,
Bishop K. Usaki, of Kobe, Japai
dressed an audience that cmop]
filled every available foot of s
with an address that was truly
quent* and so permeated witl
spirit of positive sincerity, thai
multitude refused to scarcely :
until he had finished, although
more than one half the people <
understand what the bishop was
Judging from the number of
pie present andtheir manifest int*
in what the speaker said, the Fi
night service was the most poi
one to be held in the conferenc
far. It was an occasion to inspire,
the visiting prelate was greeted
sea of kindly faces as he ente
making him feel so much at h
that he immediately fell into sin?

was converted thirty-five years
under the ministry of the late Bis
Lambuth. Educated at Vander
University, he received his degree
doctor of divinity-fronr Emory I
versity, which he claims as his a
mater. Bishop Usaki spoke as :
-"I am a born Southern Method

with Bishop Candler and receiv
my degree from Emory, I feel
home with Southern people, althoi
this is my first visit to Augusta
bring you greetings from 32,C
church members, ?4,000 Sunc
school pupils and 500 workers in 1
Japanese Methodist church.
. "Since 1907, when the Canadii
s Northern and Southwest Method
churches in Japan united, our c
purpose has been co-operation, i
that is the spirit of the age, natic
. and peoples, and should be that
churches. We are all one in Methc
ism, with a vfine spirit of co-opei
tion without friction-or division, a
we desire to maintain the friendly i
lation to the mother church in Ame
ica. We feel that we owe a speci
debt to the M. E. Church, South.
Stress Evangelism '
"In the Japanese Methodist chur<
we lay stress upon evangelism, whi<
spirit was eulogized by Bishop Lar
buth two years ago at our gener
conference at Tokio. We are the ol
spring of a missionary church, so v
are missionary in spirit, already ca
rying the message to Korea, Mai
churia, Formosa and other island
We are not rich and are small in siz(
.yet Methodism is in the lead arnon
the churches of? Protestanism in J;
. "The aim of the Japanese churc
is to have 50,000 members by th
end of the next two years and ou
members are all mobilized, men, wc
men and young folks, ready to mov?
In our missionary work we have me
obstacles and difficulties in the ne^
Japan, but our motto is to keep kiel
ing, never rest, keep going, ever dc
"To meet the situation in Japan w
have our movement similar to you
centenary movement, which mean
a great forward movement and a na
tion-wide revival, and the campaigi
is now on. The financial phase of th
campaign has just closed, in whicl
we received pledges for $315,00'
more than was asked; and the secre
tary wrote me since I left home tha
everybody is paying pledges, excep
those who are dead. (Applause.) Sub
scriptions were from 10,000 yen t<
10 cents, and stories of self denia
are abundant. Extra work was per
formed, meals ware missed, anc
young people organized themselve!
selves into 'Here is the Point Socie
ties,' which were for the purpose oi
helping them to practice self-denial
"Our motto in the second stage oi
the campaign is for every person tc
win another, and thus double oui
strength in two years more. In the
nation-wide revival the laymen are
the moving spirits.
"The phases of the campaign are
five.v First, six months of union pray
er. Second, united efforts of workers.
Third, loyalty to the church, and the
development of a church conscious
ness. Fourth, unified leadership, car
rying out the plan laid down by the
general conference. Fifth, evangeli
zation of the Far Easjt.
"Our sole determination is to
preach the pure gospel of Jesus
Christ, and be true to the traditions
' that have come down from John Wes
ley, for we have realized that Meth
odism is Christianity in dead earnest
Japan must be Christianized now,
and the talk of a Japanese menace
will be changed to a Japanese bless
ing. The Japanese are capable of the
highest type of Christianity, and we
now face a new issue.
Want to be Friends.
"We want to maintain friendly re
lations with America. We sent our
young men and women to America
for instruction; our Princess Dynama
is a church member. We translate
American literature into Japanese,
and in our educational system we
make the study of Anglo-Saxon Eng
lish compulsory above the primary
grades. This is one of our great
points of contact.
"America is Japan's best friend.
(Loud applause.) Who opened our
closed doon;? America. Who opened
our ports and brought us trade and
commerce? America. Who first sent
us great missionaries? America.; We
admire American spirit, vivacity,
straight-forwardness, intellect. We
study your philosophy and political
economy, and our government is
shaped somewhat alter that of
"Some western notices misunder
stand Japan. With ai}, my sr ul I as
sure you that the unanimous desire
of my people is fer peace and thc
correlation of the nations. Japanese
women desire world peace. Young
people of Japan desire world peace.
And my earnest prayer to God is that
through His providence and the wis
dom of the representatives of the na
tions now gathered in Washington
some way may be devised whereby
the nations shall obey Jesus Christ.
"Since I left Japan I have been
carrying in my breast pocket two
flags ,one of the Stars and Stripes
and the other of the Rising Sun. I
hold these flags before you, (The
congregation rose to its feet) and,
as a believer in Jesus Christ and His
atoning blood and everlasting gospel,
I pray that as the flags are thus to
gether in my hand the two nations,
one in the East and the other in the
West, may stand united for peaceful
international relations throughout
the world and the dominance of the
kingdom of Christ over all."
As the bishop said his last sen
tence some brother in the congrega
tion started the song, "Blest Be the
Tie That Binds," which the audience
sar g with great zeal. Bishop Usaki
dismissed the congregation with a
pn.yer for the arms conference at
Wiishing-con and with the apostolic
M'Adoo Rule Upheld.
This newspaper has many times
held that William Gibbs McAdoo is
cm e..of the most versatile-men in the
nation. Another proof that The Rec
ord knows a man when it sees him
has just come to light. The order of
Mr. McAdoo, as director-general^ re
quiring that damage suits against
railroads under federal control be
brought at the place of accident or
residence of the plaiitnff, was upheld
the past week in the United States
The court reversed Mississippi
State courts in holding that the di
rector-general's order was improper
exercise of authority and in permit
ting suit to be brought at a place oth
er than designated in the director
general's order. The decision was in
the case of Smith Journey against the
Alabama and Vicksburg Railway.
Journey was injured at Jackson in
October 191,7, and $5,000 was
The versatility of Mr. McAdoo, as
The Record has before pointed out,
is demonstrated by the fact that he
is one of the soundest expounders of
the law in the nation. On the other
hand, he is a better railroad man
than the average railroad official. He
is a better banker than the average
banker. He is a better speaker than
the average speaker and he knows
more about engineering problems of
the first class than two thirds of the
civil engineers of the country com
We are^saying these few things
only in a general way. There is no
politics in it, either on our part or
on -the part of Mr. McAdoo. He is
not aspiring to public office, so far
as we know, or believe. Few big men
of the nation have ever reached the
presidency. The country doesn't sum
mon its bigger men to that office, un
less it does it by accident. But Mr.
McAdoo would do more toward read
justing the affairs of the country to
normalcy,'if he were called to the
White House, than any man we have
in mind just now.-Columbia Record.

Terms Proposed by America
Great Britain and Japan
for Reducing Navy
The details of the American na
reduction proposals as outlined
Secretary Hughes follow:
"The United States is now co
pleting its program of 1916 calli
for 10 new battleships and 6 bat
cruisers. One battleship has be
completed. The others are in varie
stages of construction; in some cai
from 60 to over 80 per cent of t
construction has been done. On the
fifteen capital ships now being bu
over $330,000,000 have been spe:
Still the United States is willing
the interest of an immediate limil
tion of naval armament to scrap ;
these ships. s
"The United States proposed,
this plan is accepted
"1. To scrap all capital shi
now under construction. This includ
6 battle cruisers and 7 battleships i
the ways and in coui'se of buildii
and two battleships launched.'
"The total number of new capit
ships thus to be scrapped in fiftee
.The total tonnage of the new capit
ships when completed would be 61 ?
2." To scrap all of the older ba
tleships up to, but not including tl
Delaw?re and North Dakota. Tl
number of these old battleships to 1
scrapped is fifteen. Their total toi
nage is 277,740 tons.
"Thus the number of capital shij
to be scrapped by the United State
if this plan is accepted, is 30, wit
an aggregate tonnage (including thi
of ships in construction, if comple'
ed) of 845,740.
"The plan contemplates that Grea
Britain and Japan shall take actio
which is fairly commensurate , wit
this action on the part of the Unite
It is pr?posed that Great Britain
"1. Shall stop further construe
tion of the 4 new Hoods, the ne-v
capital ships not laid down but upoi
which money has been spent. Thesi
4 ships, if completed, would have ton
nage displacement of 172,000 tons
"2. Shall, in addition, scrap he:
pre-dreadnaughts, second line battle
ships, and first line battleships, up t<
but not including the King George \
"These, with certain pre-dread
naughts which it is understood havt
already been scrapped, would amounl
to 19 capital ships and a tonnage re>
duction of 411,375 tons.
"The total tonnage of ships thus
to be scrapped by Great Britain (in
cluding the tonnage of the 4 Hoods,
of completed) would be 583,375 tons,
"It is proposed that Japan -
"1. Shall abandon' her program
of ships not yet laid down, vise, the
Kli, Owari, No. 7 and No. 8 battle
ships, and Numbers 6, 5, 7, and 8j
"It should be observed that this
does not involve the stopping of con
struction as the construction/of none
of these ships has been begun.
"2. Shall scrap three capital ships
(the Mutsu, launched, the Tosa, and
Kago, in course, of bujlding)vand 4
battle cruisers (the Amagi and Akagi,
in course of building, and the Atoga
and Takao not yet laid down, but for

"The total number of new capital
ships to be scrapped under this para
: graph is 7. The total tonnage of these
new capital ships when completed
would be 189,100 tons.
?"3.1 Shall scrap all pre-dread
naughts and battleships of the sec
ond line. This would include the
scrapping of 10 other ships, with a
total tonnage of 159,828 tons.
"The total reduction of tonnage on
vessels existing, laid down, or for
which material has been assembled
(taking the tonnage of the new ships
when completed), would be 48S,928
"With respect to replacement, the
United States proposes: >
"1. That it be agreed that the
first replacement * tonnage shall not
be laid down until 10 years from the
date of the agreement;
"2. That replacement be limited
by an agreed maximum of capital
ship tonnage as follows:
"For the United States-500,000
"For Great Britain-500,000 tons.
"For Japan-300,000 tons. "
"3. That subject to the 10-year
limitation above fixed and the maxi
mum standard capital ships may be
replaced when they are twenty
years old by new capital ship con
"4. That no capital ship shall be
built in replacement with a tonnage
displacement of more than 35,000
