GEORGE F. HENSHALL "MANAGER WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 10. 1909 AN INSIDE VIEW OF ORIENTAL SITUATION. In the following review of the Far Eastern situation Edwin Wild man, former Vice Deputy Consul Gcncraf to Hongkong, written just before the assassination of Ito, is given probably a very accurate description of an evidently serious crisis: Without pretending to explain the diplomacy, or lack of diplomacy, of the Washington Government in recalling Minister Crane, and thus baring its hand in regard to Japan's Manchurian policy, the fact re mains that the Administration has again bent its knee to Japan. To say that the situation in the trans-Pacific is acute is not to strike a note of alarm. It has been in a state of chronic acutencss ever since John Hay promulgated the Monroe doctrine of Asia-the much Heralded and oft-boasted policy of the open door, originally designed as trade diplomacy, but now rapidly assuming a military policy; and S,i will be in an acute state until the nations of the world either rec ognize that 50,000.000 of growing, aggressive people cannot live on a strip of volcanic, mountainous territory, the size of Montana, or the nations of the world individually or collectively step into the ring, and, to use a schoolboy phrase, "lick them out." Just after the Hay policy of the open door was flashed- around the world, and long before Japanese aggression in Corca was known out side the Cabinets of nations, I talked with the .veteran statesman, Mar quis Ito, in his house in Tokio, upon this very question,- then in its embryonic manifestations, now in its acute state. The "Grand Old Man" of Japan is the shrewdest, yet apparently the. fiankest, personage that Nippon has produced. Taking a slip of paper and a pencil, the old statesman hastily drew a map of Japan, further tracing the outline of Korea, emphasizing its proximity to the western coast line of the shores of Nippon. Corea is strangely like an ancient Japanese dagger or machetti. "It is a dagger pointed at the heart of Japan," he said with that peculiar aspiral intonation of his race, not unlike yie hiss of a mad dened gander. A dagger is o'f itself .an inert, harmless thing, but in the hands of en enemy its possibilities are measured only by the brawn that wields it. The Russo-Japanese War delivered the dagger to Japan. Already a half-built railroad gave its backbone a vertebra of steel. Today that road is completed far up beyond the confines of Korea, to Port Arthur, to Mukden, in the heart of Manchuria, with spurs here and there extending like a fan from the sea coast to Vladivostok, and around the coast of the Yellow Sea to Neuchwang, to Tientsin, and up to Pekin itself. An admirable highway for Japanese merchandise and, troops ! Tapan has Korea. She must have Manchuria and she will have predominance in the affairs, diplomatic and martial, of China. Jf she has to fight for that position she will fight, and that, in a nutshell, is the situation that clouds the Oriental horizon: that compels the 'American Government to recall a too free-spoken Minister.

In matters of progress a single idea is always worth-putting forth. If the main cause is being actively promoted, any useful suggestion aids in perfecting the concrete measure. Should the cause be dormant the proposal of a detail, whether capable of being put in operation at once or otherwise, will attract public attention to the complete object aid thus advance its fulfilment. Such a detail in the matter of school hygiene has been published in this paper and there seems to be no reason why it should not be put into effect, especially in the chools of the larger towns of the Territory, without waiting for legislation on school hygiene in general. Reference is to the plan submitted by Principal Cyril O. Smith of Kapaa school to the educational depart ment for looking after the children's teeth. It appeared in yesterday's issue of The Star. School hygiene was brought to the attention of the public by Super intendent Babbitt after his return from a tour of investigation of edu cational methods' on the mainland about eighteen months ago. It was one of the things that he most earnestly studied, in his travels on that occasion. A bill introduced in the session of 1907, providing for a medical inspector to devote his time exclusively to the schools, failed of passage for the reason, its author was inclined to believe, that its provisions were not clearly understood. -Mr. Babbitt ventures this opinion in a pamphlet he issued later "Hawaii's Need of Medical Inspection in Schools," containing, besides a general discussion by riimself, articles by Doctors Whitney, Rogers, Judd and Cofer, to gether with information on medical inspection in Massachusetts and New York City. Mr. Babbitt gives statistics of several schools in .these islands to show the economic waste resulting from absences of pupils on account of neglected ailments, and makes a succinct and telling argument for the proposed reform in the following words: Our uniform course of instruction is based on the work a normal child can do. If, because of improper seating, defec tive vision, imperfect hearing, bad condition of nose, throat, teeth, spine, other organic or chronic troubles, a child is un able to do the required work and is compelled to take over one or two years' work, the Territory pays twice or three times the usual amount for the year's work of that child. We have no special schools for the blind, deaf or backward and it therefore behooves us to render our children ' as physically fit as possible to do the work in the schools we have. Were accurate figures obtainable of all children absent or incapa citated for regular school work, I believe it could be proven tliat the Territorv is spending each year vastly more money for instruction which it is not receiving, than a thorough inspection, would cost. It is estimated that from 50 to 75 '"" per cent of parents notified of defects in their children gladlv ' afford means of relief., .Qun. truancy and health laws could doubtless handle nearly all other cases. , , ' DIVIDENDS TODAY.
