GEORGE F. HENSHALL "MANAGER
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
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.

A meeting of the trustee's of the
I Chamber of Commerce Is being held at
3 o'clock this afternoon. Routine mat

is just possible that another whirl

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. , , '
