i- situated, ii the cream of Manchuria, so
far as commercial advantage goes. It was
this Important little piece of landscape
thai Japan took from China after the
Chino-Japanese war, and which Russia
made her give up ".in order to preserve the
territoiial integrity of China and peace in
the Far K;t«t."
Upon the ownership of the JJaolling pe
ninsula practically depends the control of
Manchuria* commerce. Even If at the end
of the war Russia should have all of Man
churia except thin peninsula, she would
have suffered a terrible loss, for it give-*
her a triple gateway to the Pacific thai
aba must have it the is to continue on her
program of swallowing China.
| Up to the time that I came into direct
Contact with Russia and her people, I had
adopted the phrase that this was ''a war
between the white man "and the yellow."
Hut the Russian is far more of an oriental
in habit of mind anil custom than he is
like the White races. Men who have dealt
with Russian diplomats and Russian trait, ;
ness m.'ii for years unanimously agree that |
the Russian is an Asiatic. The head of
11 ii ■ empire may be in Europe, but the great
body of i! is in Asia, and li is essentially
an Oriental nation.
If Russia should win this war and make
her hold upon Manchuria a permanent one,
she will go on until she absorbs nil China,
Japan will no longer be a power to be
reckoned with, and Russia, with the vast
wealth of China, and with China's hun
dreds of millions of people from whom to
draw exhatwtleM armies, will be in such a
position that all the; world cannot hold
her in check. '.?%'
