' 11H COR I,' OF THI QUESTION IS
Lust for power and riches has been,
the seat of nearly all wars since the
beginning of time. In the wars of the
-gyptians. the Babylonians, Persians
and1 ldRomans, on down the line through
the period of the modern Iuropeani
nations, expansion of national domain
for purpoe, of trade ha- been at the
bottom of the cause of wars. The lat
est great tragedy was the result of
commercial rivalries between the great
nations of Iurope. President Wilson,
in an idealistic dream which failed of
realization largely through partisan
politics at hoie, sought to remove the
Incentive of expansion by fixing the
boundaries of the nations of the world
and forming a leage of nations which
would guarantee that these boundaries
be kept intact.
President Harding has called a conl
ference of nations oi disarmament to
prevent the cost of proparation for
War. Success of his tlan is again en
clangered by the same old lust for pow
er and riches. China, practically the
sole remaining field of exploitation in
the world that is not able to take care
:f itself either by arms or diplomacy,
is the bone of contention. Japan, its
miitarstic nieighbor. t lEgland and
Prance have wrestled territory atnd
toncessions from the vas*t but helpless
L'elestial empire which they refuse to
give iu), but which all the time creates
the spirit of rivalry and distrust which
lemanids of each a large militaristic
r-ganization. The l'nited States, itn
self defense and as a protection of its
Dwi interest sin those spheres, Is
rorced into the same positioni of rival
Should the four great powers coin
sent to act fairly by China, the Far
Fastern question would be solved and
Japan at least would have no need for
great naval armaments. Likewise our
iecd and that of Great Britain, making
the three rival naval powers at this
inie, would be diminished an(l the cost
)f naval armaments automatically re
luced. At the bottom then, after all,
:he question of naval disarmament
lests upon the question of an honest
ttletmen of the Chinese situation.
'he question of land armaments Is ain
A clear explanation of the Chinese
iuestion is found in an article by
.ishop Warremi A. Candler, of Atlanta,
01111d In Sunday's issue of The Atlan
a Journal, a part of which follows:
Why not all disarm, then, and go to
votk instead of trying to be always
'caty to go to war? III one word,
trange as it may seeni, the answer
, "China." Why doles Chiia stand In

een for years trea ting Chitna witht itn
tusti'ce. Their wvronig to thte 2holese
ta; -been, andi it', a :nost cosly~ crimve.
As far 1:aek as 1812. when China at
im ted to ;.at an end( t, the nefarious;
rade in10)1 oim, biy which her people
vere beitng debauched, Great Britain
ame forward to forbid the aholitlotn of
lhat htorrible traffic. The sale of opilumt
neantU millIions to Br itishi tradlers, atid
to war was decclar'ed otn China. The
ssuec of the "oplutm war" wvas certalin
romi thme first; Chin~a .wan beaten; an
ndetmnity of $4t2,000,000 was exacted;'
tid Great Britaini took over lIIongkong.
Seeing that mioney and land could lie
aken frotm China so easily, France
sooni stepped in and annexed Cochin
2hina, and titn e-xtendied a "protect
>rate" over Cambodia. Still later the
samue jowver pirovoked an unjust war I
.1dth China and took Tokin and~ Atnam.
Of course, Rutssia wanted somnething,
chile "getting was eany,"' and she In
urn took the Amuir river, wIth all Its!
etmmercial advantages, and annexed ~
'he entite coast of Manchuria to the
rotier of Korea, and built the fort oft
Vladilvostock with Its valutable port.
Tfhetn Germany came In for her '
'sp~hete of influence," and, making at
retext of the killing of two German
nitssionaries, b~y ChInese fanatics, she
threatened China with .war unless the
harbor of Kinchow were leased to the
Kaiset's E~mpire~ for tintety-nine years.
Such a gi-ab game was -bound to
aroutse the cutpidity and fears of Japan,
and she began to take notIce with a
view to having a htand In It. At first
she plrofessed great love for Korea, and
gave sympathy to a Korean revolutot'
,or indlepend~en, wvhich brought on the
war between C~lna and tihe Empilire of
the Miktado. China was beaten in the
cotest atnd a large Indemnmity was ex
tor'ted b~y Japan. China havitig been
thus~ put out1 of the way, a wvar with
Ruissi!a wayii briought. on, and na. the end
of that contest, JIauan ;.nnexedl Korea
with neverI a thiought of Korean inde
penidence for which ml' l'rofessedl sitch
concern whetn she wrint to war wllh
China. Beicndes annfexng Korca, Jeamn
undertook to - acqtuire the Llaottung
Peninsula, Formnona, and the Pesea
dotes ,Islands after her prtevicous war
with Chi)m, and this effort wait the pr6b
vaking causo of the war with Ruttia.
Klachow, (a forced lease from China),
When Germany leased the harbor of
Kiachow, Great Britain compolled
Chinr to give her a lease of indefinite
lontgth to the gre~at h-arbor of WVeihal-j
wel, and site (phtained also a leabe oft
four hundred squtare mies of territory

dofense of Hiongkong.2 -
Subsequenthy Great fBritain extended
her "spheo-e of infittence" up the
Yangtze valley, and France, not to be
outdone by her neighbor across the
lEnglish Chanel, threw her "sphere of
influence" around the P1'ovince of Yu
It was not surprising that after the
European powers had thus continued
to loot China for years "the Boxer war"
broke out in 1900. It was a rebellion
against foreign injustice, although it
was attended with such brutality that
the nations of Europen, with our own
country, united to put it down, which
result they accon:lished in short oi
After the "Boxer war," the nations
exacted indemnities from OCtina, of
course; -but be it said to the honor of
the United States that the indemnity
paid to our country was returned to
China, and I snow being used by the
Chinese governmet as an educational
fund for educating students in Ameri
Japan and the 'nite( States got
nothing out of the "Boxer war"; but
when Japan made war against Russia
and whipped the forces of the czar, she
took all the holdings of Russia, includ
ing the L-iaotung Peninsula with Port
Arthur and IVaiy, subsetiently ab
;orbing ManchurIa and Inner Mongolia,
and annexing Korea.
During the World War Japan oustedZ
Germany from Changtung and took
ver the Kaiser's ninety-nine-year lease
)f Kiaochow. And Great Britain vir
