But having said tasse things, the record will show to Japan that not enough Senators had the courage to vote as they felt, snd the result win be. according to lead era, that Japan will have double rea son to despise the Senate?for its utterances against the Shantung de rision and for its failure to record enough votes to do something about it. Brandrgre Scares "Ayes.?? Senator Brandeg-ee. of Connecti cut, pointed out the effects of this course to the Senators In a brief speech in support of the amend ment. He said: "When you vote against this amendment, you agree to the in famy of the steal and put on record a self-accusing declaration to the effect that you know It 1? a steal but are afraid to do anything about It If any Senato? want? to stand on that record all the rest of his life let him do It. I refuse to do It,' treaty or no treaty." Senator Johnson, of California, I tersely explained to the Senate that ? the only question involved was the moral question of whether or not the Senate desired to do Its part to ward righting a wrong or agreeing to It. He said: Wrong, Says "If It Is trae, aa has been said heve, that the decision was abominable and detestable. It w?l be difficult for any man here to vote to condone that wrong. I am not questioning any man's motives, any man's courage, I state only my own position: There's a wrong, there's an infamy?, there's a crime and my signature shall never be attached to that wrong In any degree whatever. It Is not a question of whether we can yield back Shantung to China. I regret to say that no apt of ours can remedy the wrong that has been committed. But that is no reason why we should not state our opinion that it should go back to China. For the first time in our his tory we are asked to despoil a friend* ly nation and to break our word and our faith with a friend. Let us do the right no matter what the conse quences, and let us put the stamp of our disapproval upon what is admit tedly a -wrong?' During the debate. Senator Hale, of Maine, unexpectedly announced that he will oppose any amendments. In cluding the Johnson amendment. This action gave Senator Johnson and oth ers reason to believe that there Is .small chance of his amendment being adopted. It Is generally believed It will fail by about three votes. ?.??tor PTieUn?. Talk Senator Phelan, of California, wa? given unusually clove attention as he spoke. Senator Phelan said: "When Commodore Parry opened Japan, be did not know what was m In It- P?iei etnee tt has been a Pan dora's Took of trouble: but we, having brought thai Oriental problem on our selves, are now obliged tg find a remedy or ? way out. "It is not tne concern of China alone hut of tbe United States as wen. The world Itself Is a party at the bar. We are ??"ring, of the politi cal and economic control of Japan. We are discussing her paramount position In Asm. If not restrained, she will reduce all Asia. She come Into the Pacific. She has ed the Pacific. Several administra tions have had so much respect for her prowess at arms that they offered no effective resistance to her peaceful penetration of America! At this very ?t??p? the Pacific Coast Is Invaded and the Territory of Hawaii, "the key or the Ps-ctfle," Is la her hands. She has there an army of occupation. Her reservists are in possession. Twelve thousand Americans face one hundred and twelve thousand Japanese In the naval base of our Pacific fleet! She Is there about ready to take peaceful and legal control of the civil govern ment Yesterday I read this report tn a Wsshlngton newspaper: "??-oohiln, T. H..

Theae people do not amalgamate with our own. They are permanently foreign snd owe al legiance to Japan. In California atone 100,000 Japanese, constantly Increasing by law evasion, surreptitious entry, and by a phenomenal birth-rate, are repeating the story of Hawaii, with the added peril of extensive land purchase. The best agricultural lands of the State are falling Into their hand?. The movement. I believe, is directed from Tokyo. Although not accompanied yet by the teamn of marching troops and the salves or naval guns. It is none the less a real conquest.

"Tou will understand, then, in approaching a discussion of this question reused by the Shantung amendment. I am not Ignorant of the dangers that lurk in Japanese dominancy of the Pacific I would, by any legitimate means, check her advance or turn her armies. Turn them where? Why, back upon Asia, where they belong. The Lord made all men of one blood, but determina the bounds of their habitation.' But my answer Is that the remedy must be found either in the covenant of the league of nations or In the In crease of our naval armament, and I am in favor of trying the league first. I see in the Shantung amend ment the seeds of disaster, and, therefore. I shall oppose it- L-et us analyse the situation. *The award by the Peace Confer ence of Shantung to Japan, as em bodied in the treaty of peace with ? Germany (articles 1SS, 1ST and IBS) reads as follows: " ?Germany ??asuntes ta fo??i ef Japan nil her righto, title aad prtvfSrges. per-tlenlarly those ? ?asi? flea' the territory ef Klaochew. railway?, mine*, ond oabmartee cables which she ?e ?ralrr-d by virtne ef tbe treatty eonelnded by her with China ea March ?. 18*8. and ef oil other oi-magrmmts relative te the province ef Shaatwag.? "Other paragraphs specify details. In other words, twenty-one years ago Germany acquired by treaty from China, without protest from the United States, tbe rights herein enumerated for a period of 99 years. The methods by which this -was obtained may he open to ques tion just as the methods by which the other countries. Including our own. have acquired territory. "By treaty. China herself has con firmed the German rights to Japan. That is the law In the case. Mliiht Rave Joined the Berns. "As an ally. Japan protected tbe Pacific against the enemy, and. by reason of her alliance with tbe En tente Powers, the United States was free to send her army and navy abroad, which resulted In the win ning of the war. If Japan had allied herself with Germany, and there was always a fear of this, the United States could not have afford ed to have left unguarded her Pa cific possessions, which would have kept her troop? and ships at home. So as it turned out, the services of Japan were of real value, although she did not send her armies to the front and was very chary with re spect to the disposition of her ships. "Because the United States asked ?nothing for Its services, we are dis posed to look upon the other na tions as international profiteers, and this hss biased our minds against the countries which have sought and secured their own ag grandisement- One of the German Islands, the Island of Tap. Is de sired by the United States for radio and cable purposes, and It Is yet a question whether the award shall be made. That It should be made, there Is no reasonable question, be cause Che only object Is to Improve our International communications which should be of benefit to the eastern -world. Unless we are pre pared to deny Great Britain, Prance and Italy the spoils of war. we can not with entire consistency In the circumstances exclude Japan. It offends, I -will however, admit, one'? sense of Justice to ?we a country peopled by the Chinese taken over by either the Germans or the Japa nese, the Kngilsh or the French, who do not claim to have any con siderable number of their nationals In the territory, bot who take It for purposes of expansi?n or trade ex ploita tlon. 1-rogue Is Chtaa's Piule?'Ha?u. "All America has a genuine sympa thy for unfortunate China, but how far should America go In this case; and how ??t to save China from fur ther abi/rptton by japan? In this case, Japan had not wantonly at tached China, but had attacked Ger many and taken away German rights which were conceded by treaty to Ger many, and later to Japan, by the Chi nese.

In other words, tha league is China's future protection, and. If aa attempt Is now made to disturb Japan's title to rights in Shantung, without her consent. It Is probable that Japan would with draw from the les???, and she Is quite equal to making alliances with other countries, such ss Russia and Ger many as soon as TSey are rehabilitat ed. The question, thcref-rc. Is one not for the expression of our sympa thy or resentment or for the recon 1?I of Shantung against Japan, hut to see how far the success of the league and the peace of the world are served by our non-interference at this time. Japan has promised to restore Shantung to China but asks to be al lowed to do It Is her own way; but the league can hold her to it "The nationals of Japan are swarm ing the Parine and have made very serious Inroads upon the Pacific Cbsst of the United States and the Ha waiian Islands. One hundred thou sand Japanese, It Is estimated, are In California, ?ind constantly Increas ing, with a Urger number In the Ha waiian Islands. In California they are absorbing the best agricultural lands and driving the w*ilte men from the country in a flerc? competitive 'struggle. It is only a matter of a short tune, unless interrupted. omen Japan will be master of agricultural California. The 'gentlemen's agree ment** has broken down, and I have recently Introduced a bill In the Ben ate which. If enacted Into Van*, win exclude Japanese just as the Chinese are excluded now. "It Is our stern duty to consider the Interests of our own country he fore the interests of any other land, and not only are onr own interests embraced In the preservation of peace, but In ridding America, of the Japan Incubus. If she must ex pand, then her expansion tn Shan to-rrg. by agreernent with China, Is more acceptable to us than her ex pansion tn America, both North and South. She hss Inaugurated a steam ship service which dominates the Pa cific and Is landing her nationals upon North end South American shores. If ?re exclude Japan from America, as a wise national poBcy. then we should not he unduly alarmed shoot Shantung. Bat we need go no further than Shantung In the acceptance of this Idea What she now holds In Asia is an ample field. The league of nations will pre vent her forcible expansion In the future, and Japsn is a member of the league of nations. Por this pur pose we roust keep her there. "As to China, a decrepit nation, taught non-resistance by Confucius, ?without apparently the means of defending her own territory, the league of nations, wtth Japan in cluded, certainly seems to be for j her a great and permanent boon. Does China want us to abandon the ; league or leave Japan out of It? No one will blame China for making her protest, and may she attain a I position by which, like France and ; Italy, in some future day. she may j win back her lost prestige and measure her strength with the 'Hun? of the East-' Japan ?a (;.naoa-Tralanl. "Japan. German trained. Is. In all ? respects, like the defunct German I empire, seeking power and territory. 'and. If not arrested by the league > of nations, will ultimately be the ? cause of another and more serious > ?rar. And the United States Is deep j ly concerned In checking the un holy ambition of Japan just as she did check the ambition of Germany, ; and it Is by force of the league j of nations that this may be done, possibly without Involving a clash ? of arm.?, but simply by the moral * weight of the associated nations Snd their power to ?rxert economic pressure. Germany was allowed to progress too far. Japan la yet ta the Infancy of her budding dream of empire, ?o th? task Is not dlfflcult to check her without humiliating her nor offending wbat haa become peculiarly Japanese-?national sensi bilities, tat us see whether she will keep her promis? to China before we post her as a 'welcher' aad bar her from the society of nation. Madt He* S??as a atesta ras?. '?While I am not frank to say that I would go far to cripple th? potential menace of Japan in the Pacific, I do not see bow that purpose can be served by dividing the league of na tions and seeking, vainly, with th? ?Id of other power?, to deny her the German rights In Shantung. On ac count of th? treaty obligations Ens land, France, Italy, and Rasala ara In no position to join with aa In any such revision of th? treaty, even If they were well dlSTsoand: and any up set on this question at this Urne might result In the Isolation of the United Slates, and, certainly, the dis ruption of the league. Furthermore. does not Japan's own promis? to China, the Preside?*, aad to the oon frs-eno?, relieve us of the necessity of action at thia Urne? "If an uncompromising attitude on oar part shoold alienate Great Brit ain, France, and Italy, and foro, them to stand for Japan, pursuant to their treaty obligations, it might jeopardise the success of th? league of nations Itself and the treaty of peace with Germany, which embody the fruits of victory.
