THE WASHINGTON TIMES: FRIDAY; .DECEMBER 17; 1915.
SAYS TOKYO SEEKS HARMONY IN CHINA Japanese- Envoy Here Supple ments Statement Denying Aid Was Givcn.Either Side. Yuan Shi Kal has many enemies In China, and If he ascends the tirone at this time they may use It as n pretext to start a revolution. This was Riven by an official of the Japanese embassy today as a reason for Japan's Interest In the reported chango In the form of China's sovern- 5ent at this time, coincident with the nuance of a written statement, In which the Japanese foreign office offi cially denies aiding either side In the Chinese situation. IloferrlnB to Japan's participation In ndylro recently lven Yuan Shi Kal to postpone uiiy chunge In China's govern ment, tho statement says: Denies Arms Shipments. "The ndylce was dictated by (he sim plest and purest of motives, that Is. to avoid particularly at tills time aMy un toward development In tho tar East which might add one mprq disturbing clenient to the already complicated world situation. Nothlnp moro nor less. "The Japanese embassy lias received from Tokyo a .'able dispatch which au thorizes it to itate that from no quar ter in Japan have arms been supplied or assistance In any form been Riven to tho revolutionary elements' In China, nor has any Instigation been attempted, Tho allegations that Japan Is being used as a base of activities by Sun Yat-Sen and that the Japanese nte actlvelv co-operating with him are equally unfounded nud untrue, to the best knowledge of the Japanese government, which Is tak ing every measure of precaution against such attehipts. , 'Tho reports such as that the' Jap nneso consul general at Shanghai cabled to Tokyo on December 1, saying that the monarchical movement would suc ceed If something were not done quick ly, or that the Japanese warships are being rushed to Shanghai can only be characterized as -wild and hardly .merit refutation. Revolt Easily Fomented. "Tou notice that only a postponement of any change was asked by Japan." said tho official. "Japan feels that China's government Is China's own business, but wants any disturbance there now avoided on account of the European situation. There has long been n. big. revolutionary party In China. The so-called revolution' that re sulted In the overthrow of the Manchu dynasty started merely as a brawl among a group of discharged soldiers, and from a military standpoint the whole thing was a; farce. "Tho recent mutiny of the crew on a cruiser in tho Shanghai harbor shows on how small a thing a national move ment may turn In China. That could not have happened in the dominion of nnv other world power. "But If Yuan Snl Kal sees fit to Ig nore the friendly advice of Japan and the other powers there will be nothing further done about It. That will be all there Is to It" 'Bring Our Daddy Job,' Trio Write to Santa Christmas Appeals Pouring Into Times Office Would Tax Efforts of an Aladdin Girls Want Dolls, While Boys. Fvor S Have you ever thought about all the things the Kiddles would want If some Aladdin were tp come fortli from a, Bagdad tomb nnd stalk through the streets of Washington rubbing His lamp for every little waif who brought to him a desire1 unfulfilled 7 If you have-and In the 'absence of a really truly Aladdin turn to the Santa Claus, letters which are still pouring Into The -Times office: for after, all the pa tron.'salnt of Christmas Is a kind eldjec lybrotflr from the frozen North to the' Bagdad youth of Schazcrade's story. And why? Because both Aladdin and Hanta In the unspoiled credulity or childhood, have the marvelous power of granting anything that one might wlsli. And so the San(a Claus letters are a pretty good Indication as to Just what the tiny boy and girl now-a-days dreams shout and wishes for and hopes will be foilnd In his stocking, or near by It. on Christmas morning. ,And Notions Passing Strange. And U tho time the queerest little quirks, and twists of' klddle-characler are constantly cropping up from tho rudely sciawled pages Of the 'Santa. Claus letters. You might' think that a train of cars or a pair of skates would pleaso any little shaver; and that a doll and baby carriage and a set of tov dlohes would be nil tint t "little mothers" heart could desire. But, as In most cases where children are con cerned, you would bp badly fooled. Would you for Instance dream that there wag ever a little boy alive a normal little boy who loves toys and games and candy and oranges and nuts would ask Santa Claus just to brlni; his Caddy a Job? . To the Itter Is signed his name and that of his two little sisters. Here It Is: "We are three little children, but don't believe- Santa Claus will come to see us. Tapa hasn't any work. We would like it If you would give our daddy a Job. 'Daddy is very good. This Is the brst.'presnt we want" Sis Meets Usual Scorn. The proverbial scorn with which the man child Is' reputed to look upon his curly-haired baby sister Is all 'too ip parent In another of the letters. "Will you try and bring me a pair of ball-bearlcff skates," this little shaver wrot "and an air rifle and a l.WO-shot B. B, B. gun. and anything you can spare for my little sister." This letter wos one of three, all of which camp from the same nelchbcr- J hood and wero apparently written by -ouuaies. every one ot wnom anKs Santa for a pair of bill-bearlcg skates. There Is another little chap who wouldn't put Santa Claus to any trou ble for all the whole wide world In fact, he apparently wishes to relieve him of the necessity of keeping toys which the Christmas, saint mayi, not have nnv particular use for, because he lias written; "If you have any guns you don't want, you can send one along." Some Not. So Modest. And .here Is a childhood Idea-of what will bo necessary to nil her modest needs. Her, letter, which reads like a 'catalogue qf a toy deportment, says: "I'lense give mo a doll and a csrrlag. 'a set of dishes, atid a table, and a store. 'and a game Of checkers, and a pair of bnlNbeiirlug ekatps; a gooacy-goosey gander, a dog, an angora cat, cows, sheep, lambs, horses, lion, goat, ele phant, bull, hear, monkey, coach (log, a pair of shoes, and a coat, hat, and dress. That Is .all." But to get back to the Christmas desires of Young Washington, for which Old Man Washington will have to pay beforcL the Christmas tree candles are )lghteu the consensus of opinion among the little girls, of the city as to the most desirable present this year eems to be Infant dolls. Not less than a score of Little Mothers have asked for bisque babies In the Santa Class letters. Of course, muffs and real kid gloves, like grown-up sister has, are prime favorites in the running. Ball-bearing skates, just at this sea son of the year when the wind Is sharp and biting and especially since Johnny Jones around the corner has a pair which have long been the envy ot all the neighborhood, are asked for by most of tho days. But locomotives which run under their own power, and, to use the kiddle corruptlqn "fire apartments," the lire engine of which can be made to squirt a .tiny stream of water that will probably'not be the very best thing for mother's parlor wall paper, are much sought MARINE DRAFTSMEN WANT LARGER WAGES AKTIST'S OUCHMN T IN "REFUGEE" DOLLS Madame Paderewski Places 0,1 Exhibit Most Unique Collec tion Ever Shown Here. an enemy.
