WAR STRENGTH OF UNCLE
SAM AND THE JAPANESE Now that the attention of Ameri can military men ami naval experts •has been directed to the far east as a possible quarter from which to expect hostilities, some curious comparisons are found to exist be tween tbe Asiatic and American "powers. Some of them are very striking. One Important difference is in the cost of feeding the armies. The American army and navy ration is computed at 30 cents. That is, the sailor or soldier is allowed 30 cents in lieu of a ration (one day's supply fo foodi, If for some reason he does not get the ration. At the present price of provisions, this appears to he pretty close figuring on a whole sale basis. It would puzste one to buy the same ration for 30 cents at retail. The Jap ration, on the other hand, is confined almost strictly to rice, dried fish and tea. All of these are home products of Japan. The Jap ration is estimated lo cost about 5 cents in American money, one-sixth of the cost of the Ameri can ration. It would cost the United States enormously more to feed its army and navy than it would cost Japan. Another difference is In the wages of the men. The American regular, private, gets $13 a month. The American bluejacket averages about $1!0 to $:U a month. The Japa nese fighting man gets but a couple of dollars. The stragetieal Importance of Hawaii proves greater than that of the Philippines. Hawaii is almost as ■close to Japan as it is to the United States, when the magnificent dis tances of the Pacific are taken into consideration, and is on the route from Japan to the Putted States. The Philippines, while ocopylng a position that could threaten Japan, are so far from the United States that they are almost as difficult to reach as Japan Itself. Here are the most Important ports that would be liable to at tack in case of war: American — Seattle, Tacoma, Olympla.
