be most appreciated by Japan's allies.
They are simply waiting for orders

Dr. T. Masao, head of the Japanese
parliamentary delegation to the Unit

ment last night after he had finished
an address to the Japanese in lhe
Central Institute, Nuuana street He
added that a powerful battleship
squadron was being mobilized before

Doctor Masao was delighted to learn
that Admiral S. Kato's , squadron' in
the Mediterranean succeeded In sink
ing a German -submarine north . of
Barcelona, Spain. ; - 1 !
Itj, his address last night to the Jap
anese audience Doctor Masao said that
the object of the mission's visit to the

through here on his way to Japan.
While here it was proposed to him
that he. Judge C. F. Clemons, Attor
ney Charles Peterson and the late
Judge A. A. Wilder form a partnership
for the general practise of law. ;
"I would have done this had It not
been for Honolulu's intense, heat, he
remarked last night . ; V
. Hon. K. Mochitzoki, in commenting
upon the" European war, said that
Japan was dragged Into it because she
was allied with Great Britain and the
United States. .He assured his audi
ence that when the proper time
comes, Japan will be found doing her
share fearlessly and courageously.
Dr. M. Yam an e emphasized the fact
that Japan will reap great benefit from
the things the mission expects to learn
from the Americans. Hon. T. Shlmada
admitted that Japan was in need of a
helping hand from the American peo
ple. Hon. Y. Uehara said that the
world's great conflict is the beginning
of the world's reconstruction.
The meeting was attended by about
500 Japanese from all walks of life.
