i __ . f JAPAN WITHHOLDS J RACIAL EQUALITY PLAN AT GENEVA To Present Question When Mie considers Moment Opportune. ASSEMBLY POWERLESS Session Shows It Is Rubber Stamp, as Committees Really Decide. COMPROMISES REVEALED Spanish Rejected as Official: Tongue, the Wish of 15 Nations Being Defeated. My I, \ I RKXCK HII.I.S. Special Cable to Tub New Yobk Iir.H.u.d. Copirripht. into, bp Tub Nrw York Heratd. Geneva. Nov. 30.? While Japan will not briny her racial equality issue be- ; fore this Assembly meeting, the Jap- ; anese still insist that the principle of racial equality must be incorporated j sooner or later in the I.eaguo of Nations. They say they will present the question at what they consider the moment opportune and after the league's working organization has been completed. This was the substance of the declarations made by Viscount ishii before the Assembly at the resumption of the full Assembly sessions to-day. Viscount Ishil's speech, wherein vras incorporated the reiteration of Japan's devotion to the league object of ending "territorial ambitions and aggressive j policlessamong the nations," was the only notable feature of the session, which, more than any previous one, supported the theory that under the unanimity rule of the committees the Assembly Itself wtis little more than a rubber stamp. \o Pnblle Discussion. It was demonstrated to-day by the . Japanese declaration and by the first i committee rci>ort that whatever real divisions there arc, whatever conflicting 'currents there may be of thought and opinion among the nations, they are disclosed only behind tightly closed doors, as was the case at the peace conference, and a real public discussion In this pseudo-world parliament is not to be heard. Sentiment expressed in the committees discloses whether unanimity is possible, and every nation in the league is represented In these closed sessions of the committees. Therefore the Assembly meetings, as niso was the ease in Paris, ire merely for the perfunctory ratification of compromises arrived at In the | omtnitlecs. This explains why Japan ! gain postponed her favorite Is tie with j only formal declarations In-fore the Assembly and why there was practically no discussion of the rules committee report. which included the Japanese statement, though It spelled defeat for fifteen nations not to have Spanish made one of the official tongues of the league. Viscount Ishll's speech, because of the customary silence surrounding the Japanese delegation in all the conferences, was heard attentively by the delegates. At the end of the speech H. A. L. Fisher, head of the British delegation, lost no lime In going over and shaking the hands of the Japanese delegates.

As emphasizing Japan's conciliator) polJoy VI-count Ishii said Japan yielded to rne committee s uesire tor mutual jivsembly meetings, although .she had asked that meetings be held only once every two years. It took rive months for delegates from Jaoan to make the Journey to and from Geneva. Also ho laid stress on the size of the Japanese delegation here as an evidence of Japan's Interest in "this novel attempt to promote peace and go d will among men." and because of Japan's desire to educate her young men to the most colossal task ever conceived. Japan, Viscount Ishii said, in speaking on the report of the Committee on Rul s. would abide loyally by her International engagements, having made all the necessary sacrifice offerings and "being firmly convinced that In the promotion of the league she was making or.s of the most effective of her endeavors to usher In an enduring peace." The Japanese delegate recalled to the Assembly that Japan had the opportunity when the league was formed in Paris, to declare her belief that equality ahniilrl he insured all men. irrespective of nationality, race or religion. He then continued : "That principle should be established, so that the various merits and geniuses of mankind should be emancipated and given free plav ,n the interest of human civilization. Kqual opportunity should be one of the bedrocks of this organization, In order that all nations owing allegiance to the League ot' Nations should bo loyally willing to make sacrifice in blood and treasure when the occasion arises, so that the world may know that the league always stands for right and not for might, and In order that a las ing peace should be doubly assured. Will Bide Her Tliue. "It is to the painful regret and disappointment of the Government and Japanese people that the original framers of the covenant found themselves unable to accept the Japanese proposal in this matter." The Japanese delegate declared Japan would continue to agitnto for the adoption of its just demands by the league in the future. v "In view, however, of the present circumstances," Viscount Ishii continued. "Japan Is convinced that the league is yet in a stage when consolidation of its organization and Its actual working, based on the present covenant, should be accord il greater attention and deeper deliberation than questions relating to fundamental principles, which might make for a revision of the covenant, and deliberation of which should be deferred for some time. "Japan retrains from making any concrete proposal to this assembly as to tho question of equal opportunity and treatment, and will patl'Uitlj hide her time until the opportune moment presents Itself. Japan's policy In the present Assembly Is to act Invariably In a spirit, of conciliation, accommodation, and cooperation to expedite the progress of our deliberations by offering on the altar of common cause our readiness to accept and suffer Inconveniences and disadvantages entailed upon us by our special circumstances."

( i Although the overwhelming vote by , ho Seine Socialist Federation favoring i he Moscow Internationale prefaces a i iplit in the party, with the milder elenent favoring Jean Longuet, grandson if Karl Marx, the decision ?does not nean a remarkable victory for Sovletsm. While it is true that 13.000 out of .7,000 Socialists adopted the extremist dew, pledging their party body and soul o Sovietlsm, the Seine federation only nanaged to round up 17,000 out of a otal of 1,500,000 workers in the Seine Department who are professedly under he domination of the Socialist party md the General Federation of Labor. i "What could be more Soviet-like?" asks : :he Journal dee Debate. Moreover, the English Socialists, when isked to choose between the Moscow ind the New Amsterdam programmes, 'avored the latter' by a sweeping malority, so the French federation's action represent;? not only a minority action in Its own ranks, but also indicates it is I not in touch with Socialist ideals In the ! rest of western Europe. The eiuostion Is naturally being asked j how '.'achln and Froseard succeeded in j convincing so large a faction that Hoi- ; shevism offers anything France needs. ! Longuet and his friends have nol j hesitated to call the attention of their j fellow Socialists to the fact that Caeh- j In's description of the Bolshevist paradise is utterly at variance with that of such Investigators as II. G. Wells, who qpp.q nnlv mlflorv AWflltinor th^ nations adopting a Soviet regime. "If tbe vote had been taken a month a^o, tliere would have been a different result," said one disgruntled leader to the New Vork Herald correspondent. "Cachln and Frossard have intrigjed their opponents by concentrating publicity on the Soviet's military prospects. This was followed by IVrangel's downfall. and the French Government Is up- ; harently fearful of n change of policy in the matter of trading with the Soviets. ail of which tended to convince the Socialists that the Moscow policies are realy going to conquer the world. Naturally there was a rush to form an alliance with prospective political victors." Longuet refused to comment on the federation's action, hut it Is certain that unless Moscow withdraws its ukase excommunicating him as a semi-bourgeois, ho will mass the milder Socialists throughout France with the intention of I defeating every extremist candidate for 1 either parliamentary*or local elections. j hti: \i. mi.noot miss wnt.oon. liLOoMHBL'Rq, Pa..
