The rise of Japan marks the conclusion of European piracy in the far east. Nobody ex pected such an extraordinary power. Further, Japan will organ ize China, industrially and politically. The rise of Japan had been so rapid that the horrors of child and female labor in England of the nineteenth century have been reproduced-with the great difference that the intermediate stages from the England of the fifteenth century were totally ab sent in Japan. The psychological difference is enormous, and must produce a revolt, but the form we cannot forecast. In England and France the revolt was against the machine, and whilst this may not prove so in Japan, this we know ---the Japs start with a socialist movement such as was not and could not be ill England and France in the initial stages of capitalisul. Just ; as the Japs adopt and adapt the ready-made science of Europe. so the social science of the new age finds there a ready soil. We may expect tile Japanese people, who have shown such extraord inary courage on tl*e battlefield, to show in the social struggle the same indomitable energy and enterprise."

"We were told thalt the winning of the war for democracy woOuldl wil ness the b1irth of a new era, and it may be so, but all I have been a1)le to witness so far is the salle old struggle to get jobs, the saute old strife between those who have and those who haven't. the same old bat tles between the labor radicals and the labor fakirs; even the 'peace' delegates over in Europe are at log gerheads over the question of lift ing the diplomatic 'lid' and letting the people in on the doings. The closed-door advocates seem to have the upper hand, and I'm not sure but what they are right, because it is a question whether the poor old pub lic can stand for any more of that stuff called democracy which they have been handed since the signing of the arnistice. I never did know much about what the statesmen call diplomacy, 'but I've sort of leaned to the lid-off brand since the lime near five years ago when some shifty-eyed, frock-coated, human down-graders emerged from various secret chamnbers and announced to nearly 2,000,000,000 bipeds that tilhe big slaughter was officially on and for them to get busy-which you know tney did -- and I'mU one who'll say they did ii pretty fair job. But the way things are shaping up 'over there' and also 'over here,' it begins to look like they wasn't satisfied with tile slaughter job and were shaping up for some more of the same-and if this size-up of the sit uation is correct, ,I don't know but what those so-called peace delegates who favor the 'lid-on' policy are right; at any rate. I'm beginning to lean to that old stuff which says, 'Where ignorance is bliss, tis lofuy to be wise.' Viewing the whole panorama and ,"attinn an eyeful after two weeks of enforced sobriety, I'm compelled to say that the future looks du hious: you know, pal. I've always tried to look on the bright side, but I just canit see any joy in that 'birtol of a new era' and reconstruction stuff as shaping up in the offing. I've only one slnall glinmmner of hope, one little ray of sunshine, as it were. and that depends on the bolshevikis and workers' councils. I've certainly ahonlt givein no all hope of getting anything worth while out of that bhnle oi traillers lleeting at Vetr sailles, but as 1 said, I've not given up all hope of cashing in on some of lily demnocracy colIupons. I'nm going to hook up with this workers' oulln cil in LButte, as I believe they are oil the right road." "Tlie prollibition law ldoesn't seemn to have helped you any," said the Side-kick. " You've overlooked all the good stuff in the papers. )idnii't you read tie otier dlay where sollme IlButte banlkers met and re-elected themselvles and give out the news that the prospects were rosy?" "You're the bunk," said tilhe Mlucker. SOLDIERS FROM (Continued from page one.) the public on matters of army life that are usually neglected by a press busied with accounts of the glories of battle.
