It shows a condition at sea never before pictured by the camera. That the crew of the sinking vessel over

CALLS US HAUGHTY
Tokio, Japan, Oct. 25. That the
United States government is haughty
and eccentric and its people some
times tempestuous is the opinion of
Count Okuma, former Japanese for
eign minister and one of the foremost
statesmen of Japan.
Referring to the American-Japanese
controversy. Count Okuma declared
that the problem was a vast one
that its solution depended upon pati
ence and endurance as well as diplo
matic tact. The United States, he
said, would remain a difficult problem,
1 not only to japan, but to the whole of
"Great Britain has been time and
again annoyed by the haughty and
behaves herself," he said. "The arbi-j
tration and-Panama tolls problems
are the latest illustrations. I
! "What makes the matter more trou-i
iblesome is the tempestuous and irasci-i
ble mood of the American people.
On moment they rise and rage like
madmen and in the next drop to nonchalance."
