(From Christian Science Monitor)
Senator Newberry, having resigned in
the face of a volume of popular criticism
that could not possibly be ignored, the duly
devolves upon the governor of Micigan to
appoint a successor to serve until the election
of 1!24. Michigan politicians are discussing
the names of many eminent citizens of that
state who are admirably qualified to receive
this appointment, and to serve to the ?ener
al public satisfaction. Among those mention
ed are President Burton of the University
of Michigan, whose notable achievement in
the development of that great institution of
learning have been watched with interest
and hijili approval by its large lu-dy of alum
ni throughout the United States; Mr. William
Aiden Smith, a former United St.ttes Senator
from Michigan, whose service, if not brilli
ant, was at least creditable and always mark
ed by a high order of public spirit; and May
or James Couzens, of Detroit, a man of very
large means, who has given his life and no
small part of his fortune to the public ser
vice, and who is conducting in the city of
which he is the mayor an experiment in the
municipal operation of street railways, and
in the extension of other municipal functions
which is attracting very wide attention.
Anyone of these gentlemen possesses
qualities which might well justify his ap
pointment to the Senate, but curiously enough
no sense of justice seems to have impelled
anyone in Michigan to make the suggestion
that the man who was defeated by the lav
ish use of money in support of Mr. Newber
ry should be given the seat which is now
vacated. Why is there no suggestion of Mr.
Henry Ford?
It may be argued that not merely was
Mr. Ford defeated in the election which has
caused so much controversy, but that the
Democratic party, whose candidate he was,
was likewise defeated, and that no Democrat
should be appointed as Mr. Newberry's suc
cessor. 'The answer to this is sufficiently
clear, namely, that the election in question
was one in which party lines were broken
down at every point, and that Mr. Ford him
self is far from being regarded as an avowed
partisan Democrat. Many considerations
would seem to unite to make it the part of
fair play for the governor of Michigan to
consider the propriety of appointing to the
seat which Mr. Newberry has vacated, the
man who was deprived of that seat by cam
paign methods which have been so generally
condemned. Moreover, as the term thus to
be filled is but a short one whether the ex
traordinary qualities which have made Mr.
Ford a leading and an admirable figure in
the industrial world could be made of equal
value in the service of the nation.

The Japanese language school question
in Hawaii has been for the past several
years a troublesome issue between Ameri
cans and Japanese. It has become more and
more serious. While this is principalry due
to the general trend of affairs, overempha
sized and unnecessary misapprehension and
misunderstanding on the part of Americans
and lack of foresight and inadequate provi
sion on the part of the Japanese to meet the
situation are. contributory causes which, ag
grivated the situation. The issue seems to
have become a question of sentiment, against
which we should guard ourselves.
The desire of the Japanese is to stop
locking horns over the Japanese school ques
tion. Opposition to the language school reg
ulations which have been signed by the gov
ernor, in the form of a lest case, would not
only precipitate a legal ctwitroversy, Amer
ican versus Japanese, but would alienate the
feelings between the two peoples, affecting
almost every mailer in which they are con
cerned. In view of this fact and of the nature
of the question and in consideration of the
situation, we have been opposed to litiga
tiou from the very beginniug, repeatedly ex
pressing ourselves to this effect.
Enforcement of the new regulations be
ginning January 1, l!)2:j, which is the mid
dle of the school term, may cause difficulties.
It may be unbearable, sentimentally, to see
language school children drop their studies.
There is sympathy for them. The somewhat
antagonistic stand of Japanese parents, many
of whom were against litigation at first,
comes, in our opinion, from this sympathy
for their children. And it is not our iuten
tion to force them to be quiet.
However, there is a point which we
must consider in this connection, and that
is that the action of Japanese made it ne
cessary for the governor to sign the regula
tions. While no good can come from crying
over spilt milk, it is a fact that the irrespon
sible act and blunder of the officials of the
Japanese Society of Hawaii, existing as a
representative organization of Japanese resi
dents here, have caused the present mess. We
vigorously protested against the officials of
the society. But all is over now. We should,
however, be cautious not to be misled by a
few agitators and worse confound the ques
tion. The statement of the conservative men
of the Japanese community against litiga
tion, for the consideration of others, is most
timely. These men are not all in favor of
reducing the course of study in the language
schools. Their opinion was divided on the
scope and time of application 'of the regula
tions. But, knowing that a legal contest, ir
respective of victory or defeat, would prove
detrimental to the general interest, they de
cided 1o make a public statement of their
. We hope that the parents' association
which met last night, realizing its responsi
bility and the evil effects of litigation not
only on school children but on the Japanese
residents, will take a calm stand and reject
the proposal of a certain faction to test the
case. Daily Nippu Jiji.
