If Americans emigrated to Japan in tho same number as the Japanese are emi grating to America, they would re echo tho social treatment of a com pary of pariahs.

The traveller In Jnpan Is so frequent- ly told that Japan does not want the Philippines that he suspects the Jap- i anese mind of dwelling on tho subject overmuch. The Japanese are a warlike race. They are Hushed with victory. No sooner had they HnNhed the war with China than tiny began to prepare for -nr with ltos'l i. Since the treaty , Portsmouth it has been the talk of."10" Congress and a provision for the 'the Vnr 13nxt that thev would turn- steadll llv nUKumented their military glh. Just in the same way ns the strength Japanese masses thought that P.ussla hail robbed them of tho fruits of their vlctoiy over China, so to-day they think that the good ofllees of President Itoosevelt robbed them of an enormous Indemnity. The truth is, as statesmen know, that his action came at n. very happy time for Japan. Hut the Orien tal statesman ls as little Inclined as our own to shift to his shoulder? blamo which Is already placed elsewhere. If Cieor'e Dewey had been ordered to sail away fiom Manila liny after ho had sunk Monlojo's squadron Japan would not have made her representations to Washington in such a determined fash Ion. We havo some Atlatlc Inlands which ire In line with the spread of the Eas tein Island Umpire; therefore, wo are vulnerable. If Japan should dcclaro war on us to-morrow sho would find us worse prepnied for tho defen?' or the Philip-1 pinc-s than Russia was for the defense of , the Llaotung Peninsula. Japan Is ready to act at a moment's notice. She works I ward a national policy that Ilarrlrnau does toward the capture of a lallrord. While we are not thinking of the Philip pines at all she may bo tnmklng of them very hard. When we lufo command of the Pacific Alaska, as well as the Islands, ls cut off. Should such a crisis ailso, the question would be ouo of guns and ships. Thorn are no battleship for ki1 on the open maiket.

In a crisis their need is as pressing as that of .1 tourniquet whin as artery Is cut. Now, this article l-s not faint-hearted or meant tn any sense as a "ivur-scaro" sensation. Nor am I ieeapng any "late or mll'tary Informations which Is not as well known to the Japanfe as to the Americnn government. Mj object is to inform the public of a situation In a 1 ountry where public opinion rules. Tho Philippine Kland-) have cost us f-MO.tOO.Coa thus far, and we have not yet provided for their defonso or decided what we nre going to do with them. The lesson of ItoJestvensUy's effort to go from the It.Utlc to Tsushima without coaling stations ieems to have b.'en lost on our national Legislature. Within l.ToO ni.les of Manila ;s the homo base of tho concentrated Jupnnpeso llcot. Our fleet on the Atlantic In 17.CH miles n.wny from Manila by Suez and about ll,f(0 miles away by Cain. Horn. It would havo to make a longer voyago than Holestvensky did, On the way the only co.-ffing station and tlrydocks would be by tho Capo Horn route -x:i those at San Francisco. C a:; :ir tat..jr.s and tlrydocks mean to the man-of-war what food nml sleep do to the soldier. The only use of tho stations at Manlla and In Hawaii would be -n mi the ene my's hunkers. Thanks p. Congressional delay there Is not n slngli gun employ ed nt Hawaii, at Ounm, or nt Klaka Is land In Alaska. Some batteries have been on-placed at Manila; but thrio Is not n single const artilleryman in any of our Pacific dependencies. The difference between an adequately dofended hr.rbor and nn Inadequately de fended hnrbor Is tho difference between holding a doorway against a thug with a revolver nnti, you nrmc tied behind you. Our regulars havo no rnperlor man to man; our ships havo no superior nhlp to ship no equal, I think with confidenco arj an American. Hut our San Francisco gunners enn not dofena .Manila and our ships cnrr.ot keop their bottoms clean without drydocks or run without coal. For tho guns wo havo ready In tho Uni ted States we neetl forty-dvo thousand men, nnti we have only ten thousand, If Jppan mado war on us to-morrow sho could reach Manila in six flayn with eleven battleships nnd six armored cruisers. Before our Atlantic fleot could reach Capo Horn rho could put a fully equipped army corps of over forty thou sand mon into tho Philippines, Against overwhelming naval odds our four armor ed cruisers, wh'ch aro en route to tho Far East, would havo to seek a rendez ous with tho Atlantic, fleet, The big floHtlnK drydock which was towed via Suez would probably havo to be destroy dor fall Into tho hands of tho nnomy.

A recent tour of Inxpiction made by some of the best housewives in Brook lyn and officers of the New York Lea gue for Home Fconomics to one of tho largest factories where high grade soups and other food products nro put up under the most scientifically sanltnry surroundings and conditions has made many a convert to such canned f)ro ducts. Would that there were as many more throughout the country, employing only, the best of raw material the neatest of workmen and women, the latent Im-1 provements In machinery nnet nil labor saving devices, with lmmnculite clean liness In every deta'l of tho work, an Impeccable management and thc k wi liest feeling between employer nnti em-1 ploye, with never a strike anil always a long waiting list of applicants for positions. Yet there was n fly In the ointment, which In this case was an Inspector sent there lecently by the Government officials, the lesult of the new food law following the packing house disclosures. I'lterly Ignorant of tne first princi ples of sanitation or of the canning business, his first remark to the pro prietor, a man who Iris bean for twenty years building up his huiness with th meat consclentloiH regard to every de tail, was, "If 1 want to 1 can condemn anything you've got here ami havo It destroyed,'' a very selr-cvment bid for graft. After wandering about the factories, tho only unsightly, u.i.'anttary object In view, he settled Into a perfunctory routine of counting tho boxes of fin ished goods n.s sent out, stamping them with the government lnbe.1 to the ac companiment of copious anil Incessant expectoration all over the yards of the buildings which otherwise looked llko the familiar pictures of "Spotloss Town." Here Is n situation that Is liable to bo duplicated nnywhero, even while the authorities are honestly endeavor- Inff to rope with the abuses' brought out!wlnn"s "'orT?; 'M 1,1 KUJ' Mrs' F' VM' during the paeltlnB nouso disclosures. What ls the remedy? Government supervision Is certainly n coort thliiK but there should be reasonable discre tion n.-cd selcetlns men or women of Intelligence who understand the busi ness upon whno methods they are called upon to pass. TI 1 10 GOVHRN'MKXT STAMP MISAP PLIED. In this connection there Is another flagrant abuse thnt needs to be bruUKht to the attention of the pub lic, WJille the government stamp Is now reepilroel on nil factory products where beef, pork or veal are employed, It Is n well known fnct that Kimo of tho very concerns In Chloao implicated In tho pncldnff house scandals, nro now taking back from tho (jrocers many of tho (foods put up before tho revelations and revolutions In methods that follow ed, nnd havlns 'the government stamp af fixed to them.

Is there no similar safe frun.nl ai?nlnt the use of undrnwn poultry, kept In cold storage for months unit years nt at time, until so "high" that oceans of water can never mnko them sweet? ..s the laws ctnnd thero are no restriction whatever con- corning poultrj' or rlnm, both of which are largely used In thq manufacture of soups, chowders and other made dishes. Many obicure eases of ptomaine poi soning mny bo traced to these products as put up by unscrupulous dealers, with doctorJngs anil doplngs that may kill oders and thy taste of carrion, but not tho poisonous germs or erptally poison ous germicides u.mi In their preservation.
