WARNING TO JAPAN IS
SEEN IN THE WAR GAME
Mobilization is Demonstration
Against the Pro-nipponese Senti
ment in Mexico, Says the Ameri
can Correspondent of the London
London, March 16.?Stating un
equivocally that the army "maneu
vers" along the Mexican border are
in reality designed as a demonstra
tion against Japan, the Standard to
day prints an article from its Ameri
can correspondent that has caused
a sensation in the British foreign
office and in diplomatic circles. Tae
Standard, editorially stand sponsor
for it, and, despite the fact that the
name of the correspondent's authori
ty is withheld, the story is given
general credence here. The article
is as follows:
"Mexican intimacy with Japan,
which has been increasing to such an
extent as to threaten* America with
[the possibility of a disastrous flank
attack in the event of war for the
mastery of the Pacific, is the reason
for the massing of the United States
army in Texas and the concentration
of American warships along the
Mexican coast. America's military
demonstration is a warning to Mex
ico and also a notification to Japan
that the United States will not tol
erate the establishment of a Mexi
can government pro-Japanese in sen
timent. The American government
Is fully resolved to go to any ex
treme to bring an end to the danger
of the Japanese using Mexico as a
base for operations at any future
time against the United States. The
situation, therefore, could not well
be more serious.
"This information, which throws a
new light on the sudden military ac
tivitj' of President Taft, comes from
a source whose authenticity cannot
be questioned, and makes possible
the following outline of the situa
"There has been developing for
some time a strong anti-American
feeling among certaia L ading Mexi
cans, due partly to attacks on Mexi
co published in Mexican muck-raking
periodicals, and partly to a reai
fear of pan-Americanism. This led
Mexicans high in authority to de
velop the most cordial feeling for
Japan, which the Japanese,' for their
own strategic purposes, have encour
aged. Many thousands of Japanese
are now residents In Mexico. Some
estimates places the number at 100,
000. All would accept unhesitating
ly military orders from Tokyo.
"Lately there has been uneartheu
unmistakable evidence that certain
eminent Mexicans who are gradually
obtaining a position where they can
dictate Mexico's foreign policy, havt
become bolder and bolder in their
willingness to ally themselves with
Japan. Some of these Mexicans even
carried their pro-Japanese procliv
ities to the extent of expressing a
willingness to give Japan a naval
.base on the Mexican coast. The
Japanese diplomats would not accept
openly such a concession at this
time knowing that so complete a vio
lation of the Monroe Doctrine would
lead to immediate war with the

President Diaz himself is friendly
toward America. He does not look
with favor on the development ot
pro-Japanese sentiment, but he Is
unable to control the situation. This
is the condition of affairs that Presi

What Constitutes Success?
Success is usually estimated by the i
size of one's banking account. That
's but a coarse and mercenary way
of judging. It leaves out of reckon
ing other considerations, the pos
session or the absence of which can
ilon<? determine whether a man has
or has not made a success of life.
Tbe idle rich who toil not and spin
not, but who squander time, money
and health in fast living may. indeed,
be termed wealthy men, but no sen
sible person would rail them success
ful. To turn ni?ht into day, to spend
large sums of money upon actresses,
to drink and gamble, all this stamps
a man as disreputable, a disgrace to
society, and a failure, for there can
be no true success without charac
But there are wealthy men whose
lives are free from vice and who seem
to be a very pattern of prosperity,
who yet are anything but successful.
And this Is because much of their
wealth is made by constant violation
of law and by unrighteous attitude
towards their business competitors.
A man is nothing but a failure who
makes his money by the sacrifice of
conscience and of business honor.
Nor is that man to be consldereu
successful who constantly absorbs
money and gives nothln? out. 1<

A HOLY NATION PICTURED
"Sappy the people that fare thus! Happy the
people whote God it Jehovah."?Paalm Uk:iS.
W HEN. God accepted Israel' to
mm be his people, he entered
Into a Covenant or agree
ment with them. He gave
them the Law, represented in the Ten
Commandments, as. the basis of the
Covenant which Moses mediated. Is
rael agreed to be faithful.to God, and
to keep those commandments perfect
ly. And God agreed that in that event
he would bless them; they, should be
his people, and by doing the things
contained in the Law should live ever
lastingly, not die. Not only so, but he
promised to bless them in all the tem
poral affairs of life.
Israel failed to get these blessings,
for the same reason that any other
people would have failed; namely, be
cause God's Law is perfect, the meas
ure of a r^rfect man'ii ability: "Thou
ehalt love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart, mind, being and strength;
and thou shalt love thy neighbor u
thyself." Hence, the Israelites: contin
ued to die, as their fathers had done;
and as all mankind die?not being able
to keep the Divine Law perfectly.
Hippy it That People
In our lesson the Prophet David pic
tures the holy, happy, blessed nation
of the Lord. It Is a picture of the
future and not of the past. It Is an
Ideal picture. It will be realized when
Messiah's Kingdom shall have been
established amongst men?when Sa
tan's power shall be restrained, when
he shall be bound, when the blessings
of Restitution shall have uplifted man
kind from sin
and shall have
back to the image
and likeness of
God lost lu Eden,
for our race
through the sac
rifice on Calvary.
But that happy
nation will ac
ly, a happy home
would not bring happiness if cyclones,
tornadoes, blizzards, tidal waves,
earthquakes, famines and pestilences
continued. Thank God, the Bible's as
surances are that the blessing of the
Lord shall be, not only upon mankind,
but upon all their earthly home. The
earth shall yield her increase. The
wilderness and the solitary place shall
be glad and blossom as the rose. The
Lord will make his footstool glorious.
?Acts 3:19-21; Isa. 11:9; 65:25; Ezek.
87; Isa. 35:1; 00:13.
Particulars Given by the Prophet
Incidental to the blessed condition
of the holy nation of the future, the
Prophet mentions a deliverance from
strange children: "Rid me and deliver
me from the hands jj strange chil
dren, whose mouth speaketh vanity,
and whose right hand is the right
hand of falsehood."?Psa. 144:11.
In the Church of the present Age
there are some whom the Apostle
styles "bastards." or strange children.
All may make the same profession and
confession, but "the Lord knoweth
them that are his," and in his due time
shall separate the false or strange chil
dren from the true aud will glorify the
faintly ones as members of the great
Messiah. The Christ. Then will come
the time for dealing with humanity in
general?the time described In our text,
when humanity In general, under the
Messianic Kingdom, will be privileged
to become the holy and happy people
of God?when Satan and sin will be
banished and righteousness and Truth
will flourish and the knowledge of the
glory of the Lord will fill the whole
The great Messiah undertakes to be
the world's Life-Giver, Father, Regen
erator. All mankind will be awakened
from the tomb and have the opportu
nity for rerpneratlon and full attain
ment of human perfection and God
likeness. Ilowe-er, for quite a time
there will be etrauge children amongst
men?those who will experience the
blessings of that glorious time with
out giving proper benrt responses. Not
until the world shall have been rid of
these by their dying the Second Death,
will the fullness of happiness prevail
amongst the children of men.

FACING A CRISIS
PARTY IS DIVIDED IX BOTH
HOUSE AND SENATE.
Absence of Team Work?Lack of
Harmonious Accord With the
Washington, March 17.?Divided
In both house and se late and lacking
unity of action between congress and
. This is the remarkable and un
precedented condition in which the
republican party will find Itself upon
the assembling of the sixty-second
congress in extraordinary session,
two weeks from next Tuesday.
In that crippled situation, the ad
ministration Is to attempt to put
through important tariff legislation
and to account to public opinion for
the war maneuvers.
On the eve of assembling of what
may prove to be one of the most im
portant sessions of congress in a de
cade the president and his cabinet
are scattered, the old-time leaders of
the party in congresu are, some of
them, out of power and those re
maining are at odds with each other
and with their party associates.
Confronting the republicans is a
comparatively compact democratic
organization, controlling the lowei
branch of congress and one many is
sues dominating the upper house
through the progressive republicans.
And the next presidential campaign
will be in the making a year from
this spring. Old-timers say that the
republican party has not faced a
more critical situation since its or
But a moment's reflection is re
quired to appreciate the position of
[the republicans in congress. In the
house the democrats have a majority
of 47. In the senate the republicans
will have a nominal majority of six,
and it is nominal in every sense, toi
it includes radically progressive re
publicans, who have not hesitated
in the past to vote with the demo
To all intents and purposes the
sixty-second congress in practically
democratic. By the same token, the
president of the United States, while
a republican, Is not regarded by many
of his party associates as strictly
partisan. There is no balm in Gilead
for the old-time party man.
"As to 1912, we are standing be
fore an open grave," said one of the
old-line leaders today. He was
"seeing things" with a vengeance,
but he was viewing them with the
eyes of 30 years of experience.
Lack of Accord With President.
The republicans In congress feel
keenly the lack of harmonious ac
cord with the president. "Team
work" they declare to be essential to
party success, and there is not the
remotest indication of it.
It has been told before how the
republicans In congress felt the pres
ident's ignoring them in the presen
tation of the Canadian rec'.procity
agreement. With the sole exception
of Mr. McCall of Massachusetts, the
republicans in the house obtained
their Information of the progress or
those negotiations from the daily
press, and the senate, except Mr.
Lodge, did the same.
In this pending Mexican Incident
the republicans of prominence, who
will be supposed to defend the ad
ministration against the certain at
tacks of the opposition, have yet, it
Is said, to be taken into the confi
dence of the executive.
And they cannot find out, they
complain, from the members of the
cabinet, either, for, with the excep
tion of Attorney General Wickersham
and Secretary Dickinson, the cabinet
does not seem to know much about
the Mexican incident. And these two
have been out of town most of the
time since the movement began.

We shall know each other better

We shall know as we are known,
Nevermore to walk alone,
In the dawning of the morning,
When the mists have cleare daway
If we err in human blid'.ess
And forget that we are dust,
If we miss the law of kindness
When we struggle to be just,
Snowy wings of peace shall cover
All the pain that hides away
When the weary watch is over
And the mists have cleared away.
We shall know as we are known,
Nevermore to walk alone,
In the dawning of the morning,
When the mists have cleared away.
When the silvery mist has veiled us
From the faces of our own
Oft we deem their love has failed us.
And we tread our path alone.
We shall see them near and truly,
We should trust them day by day,
Never love or blame unduly,
If the mists wjre cleared away,
We shall know as we are known.
Nevermoru to walk alone,
In the dawning of the morning,
When the mists have cleared away.
