By CORNELIUS VANDERBILT, Jr. Copyright. 111*. -T C-V Japan dreads an awakened China! The sleeping giant o? Asia is rubbing the slumber-du?t from it? ?yea; h will shortly stitch ita arms and yawn a bit. With an al most vicious suddenness. China taay be expected to leap from her couch of the ages as one stung by Jthe biting flames of oppressive aggression and demand, at the point of the bayonet, the return of stolen properties and compen aation for the outrages committed upon her. It will be a hard day for the little 'Imperial Island Empire of Japan wnan a vouag, ?Jrong and revenge-driven China finds her aelf ready to, call upon Japan for an accounting of the Nipponese Stewardship of the Orient. Japan Shifts Policy. Too well does Japan realise the possibilities of a strong and united China. But the Imperial Govern ment of Japan Is pondering If the hour Is not now too late. To soft en the age-old bitterness of the Chnese, to do what she can riowto avert the seemingly Inevitable clash of arms. Jspan has suddenly, and With the eagerness of an all too penitent youth, altered her outward policy toward China. Hungrily searching for some common ground between the Asiatic nations. Japan has cunningly conceived the Idea that China must be convinced that there is need of an alliance of Ori ental races against posalble west ern invaslo.i and occldentsl sup pression. - A more constructive policy or tardy good will Is seen in Japan s expressed intentlonsto be excep tionally generous with the government In the matter of af fording easy payments to China in the latter s efforts to recover the Province of Shantung. whjch Japan tore from the breast of Cathay. There Is also an tncllnaUonupon the part of some of the .Japanese leaders to yield several Points to China In the matter of railway sua i ds In Manchuria. And It comes very late. Even as It-comes, Chinese leaders do not fall to perceive the astuteness of the Japanese in every move, ^e appar ent deception that lies at the bottom of tvery chalice of good will tendered the Chinese government. China s attitude in receiving what Justly be longs to hr is not quite as concilia tory and co-operatively good-naJT6!! ?a the Tokyo foreign office had hoped might be the case In tact, the Peking officials have donned the robes of arrogance. New leaders ap pear In China whom It may be well to consider before giving closer study to the new program Japan proposes to pursue In her determination, as strong as ever, to annex the rich Chinese province of Msnchurla and the Siberian province of Sakhalin, In cluding the northern half of Sakhalin Island ^ Chinese Leaders. First In the new order of rtmark able Chinese leaders Is Dr. Welling ton Koo, well known to A -.net-leans. Dr Koo waa Chinees ambassador to Oreat Britain and was one of the three Chinese delegates to the Wash ington Arms Conference. Dr. Koo recently returned to hi* native land and assumed She portfolio of foreign minister In the new Peking cabinet. One of Dr. Koo's first acts was to announce that China would seek the return of the Kwatung peninsula next year. That Is to say China proposed again to secure to her,le'J the rich Llaotung peninsula with Port Arthur and Dalny, formerly the nroperty of Russia and now of Japan. Ably abetting the new Chinese for eign minister Is Dr. Sao-Ke Alfred Bse the Chinese Minister to the United States, who Is still at hlapost In Washington. Dr. Sxe, who Is con aldered the most highly trained diplomat of the Chinese diplomatic corps, Is counted upon to swing the United States Into line to support Dr. Koo's claims when they are pre sented. The United States will probably refuse to take sides al though public opinion in America May force this Government to openly declare Itself. Irrespective of China's ability to realize success In Dr. Koo's promise to demand the return of Chinas etolen tsrrltory ?r Llao-Tung. the statement of the wtJv Koo is taken as a fair Indication of what may be expected of China In the future. Too creat an amount of arrogance on China's part Just now, however, may Mult in the rendering of the Shan tung withdrawal and payment terms far more difficult by Japan. Off setting Dr. Koo's rashness, howsver aartlotlc, is the cool Judgment of Chung-Hul Wang, the new Premier of China who waa the third member of the Chinese delegstlon at Wssh ington. Dr. Wang was formerly dhlef Justice of the Chinese Supreme Court. _ Japan's Nightmare. The lurking dread of a unified China la Indeed keeping Japan statesmen awake nights. They are between the devil and the deep blue ?ea They know not whether to con tinue the old militaristic policy to Insure economic expansion or whether to change entirely snd seek commercial growth by liberal mutual trade agreements. Japan nurses the fear that the first method would meet Its Waterloo via America, and that the second method may prove fruitless of result because of the long pent-up hatu<l for Japan, which marks the attitude of all loyal Chinese, Koreans and 8'li|rlpasslng, let os make a brief ?Mtital note: Oreat Rrtta'n. though ired te return to China the itlvely lenmnMisfslW port FIGHTS FOR RICHES of Wei-Hal-Wel, at the western ex tremity of the Shantung Peninsula, ?till retain* control of and ht* re fused to rellaquish Hone Kong. the greatest naval base In the Orient, next to the Japanese naval bases of Kobe and Kure. Let us remember, too, that the Anglo-Japanese alliance la stIU operative. Let us also Keep in mind that France has a secret understanding with Japan and (hat the Four-power Treaty shows little promise of ever being finally ratified by France, an action necessary for the abrogation of the Anglo-Japanese alliance. Let us not forget (he Japanese army which still holds northern Saghailen In subjection (Russian ter ritory) and the fact that simultaneous with the withdrawal of Japanese troops from .Siberia, arms and am munition are being supplied by the j Japanese to the anti-Soviet forces in Siberia under Oeneral Dletertchs at Vladivostok. Let us look at the dismal prospect of China, in whose dissembling and dismembering rests Japan's hope of realization of her dream of empire by peaceful means, that is to say by trick diplomacy. Wu Prepares for Fight. Oeneral Wu Pel Fu, the Oeorge Washington of the New China, and staunch supporter of the present ?' Peking Central Government, finds that he cannot permit his loyal armies to demobilize although they recently decisively defeated the Man churlan war lord, the Tuchan Chang Tso-Lln. General Wu's armies are, on the contrary, preparing for the most bitter contest In China's mod ern history. Chang-Tso-Lin has established three defense lines. The first Is at the Great Wall, one mile from 8han haikwan; the second at Wanchitun, and the third at Sulching. Fortresses are being built In and around Chi umekow. The war lord is also re ported negotiating alliances with cer tain southern forces in the Yangste Klnng valley, with the oblsct of re storing to power Tuan Chijul, the former leader of the pro-Japanese Anfu party. Chang-Tso-I^ln eventu ally hopes to combine forces with Dr. Sun Yat Sen, the Canton or south ern Chinese leader, who was ousted from the presidency several years ago. Chang-Tso-Lin. it is said, is being supplied with arms and ammunition, with gnides and instructors, with food and finances, by agents of the Japanese government. Banditry In Manchuria. After China promised at the Wash ington arms conference to do its best to keep order in her provinces, and thus guarantee protection to the Japanese nationals and Japanese en terprises, Japan agreed to withdraw all troops and all police guards from China. Thereupon, Japan kept its word and withdrew the most of her guards and troops in Manchuria. No sooner had she done so than Chang Tso-Lin's bandits started the messy affair which ended, for the time be ing, when General Wu led his armies against Chang-Tso-Lin. A specially selected set of bandits, however, swooped down upon the town of Two Tao-kow, In the Chien-tao district of Manchuria, close to the Korean bor der. ,' The Japanese consulate was burned to the ground, two Japanene were killed, one Korean and three Chinese met death. The Chinese government immediately received a vigorous note from the Tokyo For eign Office announcing that the raid ADVKRTISKMENT. ? ???.* i Efl YT~"irftvGG.^Aiin^^. ?} Mrs. Graphic Grace 8afrig, beau tiful half-blooded Indian girl, of Berkeley, C'al., is fighting in Seattle courts for the $404),04)0 for tune left by George Washington Carmark, discoverer of the Klon dike.

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Oct. SS? Promises of eternal devotion coupled with equally fervent pledges to waah all the dinner dlshaa ana help with the housework. If only she would "be his," Mrs. Beatrice F. Stockwell. alleges were broken simultaneously by Roland W. Stockwell, son of Mrs. J. H. Stockwell. within five days after their wedding, on August 6, 1922. Pending final settlement of her action of divorce, she appeared In Superior Court and was granted $65 a month M temporary alimony. All the perfume of the orange blossom* which had bedecked Grace Cathedral for the wedding and the romance had been dissipated for the girl wife, she admitted. It was Just five days after the ceremony, Mrs. Stockwell says, when her husband told her that he didn't care for her and was sorry that they had married. "We aren t tempera mentally fitted," he la said to have explained. was the third since 1930. and that in spite of China's promise at Washington to keep order in t\er country the Peking government was taking no steps to prevent bloody riots In her territories. The reader might ask how It would be possible for China to keep peace In a prov ince where disorder apparently Is fomented by the Japanese. The Japanese government followed up this vigorous note with another which had all the earmarks of an ultimatum. All' this was explained in great and confusing detail in the Japanese statement Issued by their embassy In Washington. The fact Is "police" have already been dispatched to the scene and in all probability ffl many such "scenes" throughout Manchuria. Japan's Broken Pledges. Thus has Japan violated her pledges made at the Washington arms conference. Thus la China still the prey of the foreign aggres sor. Is it to bo wondered then that some factions In China lend an ear to talk of a complete revision of Oriental policies through an alliance of Asiatics against the white man? The Giant Stirring. Five hundred million strong, the Chinese giant has stirred In his slumber'. Five hundred million strong, the Chinese giant may de signedly view an unwise and haughty Japan with its comparatively in consequential host of but seventy eight millions. Arthur Brisbane recently wisely stated that America should join heartily in moral support of the Brit ish in their efforts to hold ba<-k the Astatic hordes at Constantinople. England, In defying Kemal, the Turkish Nationalist leader, fights the cause of civilization and It Is i not for Americans to permit the j angel of discord to visit Itself upon the white races, which visitation Is | the hotie and prayer of all Islam? : a prayer that every son of Muham mad breathes at the sacred attar of his mosque every evening at sun down. Likewise, as England will have to hold hark the lowly Asiatic horde* in the Near East, the United States, with Its emancipated people and emancipated thought, must watch with surpassing watchfulness the developments as they are unfold.*! by the Japanese In their work of making real their dream of empire. Victory for the Japanese means the "Monroe Doctrine of Asia" and the ? end of the white man's commercial growth. nm man WD J REPORT Engineer at the Homeo pathic Hospital Tells How New Herbal Remedy Dreco Brought Relief.
