Japan dreads an awakened
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
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
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

as a fair Indication of what may be
expected of China In the future. Too

China's part Just now, however, may

that he cannot permit his loyal

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
