Japan's insistence that the Japanese "Monroe Doctrine of the Far Iibt" he reeopnized on tin equal footing with the Monroe Doctrine of America as a funda mental of the lenrjuc of nations is tho ic.iI linsis of the argument over' lie Pacific Island:, now occupying' llie whole time of the "liig rive" at the Peace Conference. Japan has icfu.sed to accedo to the league of nations, even in i piinciple, until this question of her' status in her own (oilier of the world is determined. Meantime, the discussion grad ually has come to involve tho whole problem of the disposition of Ger man colonies, which, in turn, reaches to the issue of hclf-dctermination. It is hecominp; apparent that the degree in which this question, raised by Japan is settled will de termine, largely tho effectiveness of tho league of nations. Japanese Xot Selfish The Japanese aro not selfish in the sense of joining in a scramble for the small morsels of the war. I It is indicated in Japanese circles hero that Japan is ready to give up Kiau-Chau to China and to re nounce ownership of all other Ger man dominions if she can gain recognition of her own Monroe Doctrine. What Japan wants is assurance of freedom for Japanese colonisa tion and tiade in all undeveloped legions of Asia and the Pacific, with recognition of Japan's domi nant power in the Kast. America already has tecognized the Japanese Monioe Doctrine in the ".iinsing agreement, ulc just before the Allied intervention in . T , , T . i Kussia. It Is the Japanese hope now 1 10 make this recognition interna- : , final.

Jan. 2!.The future of the -olonles taken from tie. many has be 'ome one of the most Interesting prob lems under eonsldetatlon by the Su premo Council of the Peace Confer ence. Hearings are now being given by the council to members nf the conference and to colonial experts. The council, at tlie same time is proceeding with a general policy which shall bo adopted by the five great Powers. At present, it appears that these Powers Intend to dispose of tlie sub ject, confident of tho approval of Its decisions by tho conference itself. The hearings Iiavo already progressed ;4J lo the stage where tlio existence; of Y il Mews greatly at variance with Presi dent WiNon's fourteen points hare been disclosed. This iloveliipiiienl lias determined (ho Ameriran delegates to remind the other Powers of that fart and to urge tho adoption of the American plan at the ery outset, in order to Ueep the rhal claimants tlhln the bounds of fairness. Plan For League) Control This plan, which was discussed Mon dav and Is rcceMng Immediate further consideration, looks to international ol of the colonics, backward na- alllles and tribes by Individual Powers or hy ngents to be known as ".Mandatories" of the league of nations. These agents am to derive their pow eis from tho league and to act en tirely on the lines of Its policy. Theso guardianships nro to be dis tributed by tho league of nations; so It again happens as in tho case of many of tlio projects of reform that Its successful application Is wholly de pendent upon tlie consummation of the league. Onn argument against the league's control of the colonies advanced by the nritlh colonial officials was that tho "mandatories" might feel them selves saddled with enormous financial responsibilities In an effort to develop their wards, and jet be subject to criticism In the event that they failed to bring them forward. League Behind ".Mandatories" President Wilon himself, felt Robert Collego because I con ietion among tho Turks of the disinterestedness of America, It might naturally llrst take upon ttselt the ' nr in,n .,011. inn R lurney in l.UIU'i . - -' H-wia fiift- tlon ot Turkey's former provinces, including Armenia.
