Against Continued Occupation of Si
beria by Japanese Troops. Lang
don Shooting Furnishes
Tokio, Jan. It! (By the Associated
Press). Government officials have not
as yet made, public the text of the
American note protesting against the
shooting of naval Lieutenant W. H
Langdon bv. a Japanese sentry at
Vladivostok. Publicists, however, ex
press the belief that Washington has
not only asked reparation, with guar
antees removing a probability of sim
ilar incident in the future, but also
has again pointed out to Japan the
wisdom of reducing if not withdraw
ing altogether, her troops from the
country where sue possess now sover
eign rights, but the littoral of which
is dominated by her military power.
This would open the only thorny
question, which Japan herself has been
finding difficulty in settling. A divi
sion of .opinion exists in government
circles as to the Siberian problem, it
is reported here. Leaders of the mili
tary party insist Japanese troops
should remain in Siberia, while the
peace party is seeking ways and means
to abandon an adventure which, it is
claimed, is ruinously expensive and
without hope of compensation. The
impression exists here that Japan will
insist upon solving the question in her
own way and at her own time, if for
no other reason than to assert the
doctrine that she is paramount in the
The Hara cabinet appears to retain
its full strength, and it is believed
it will survive the impending session
of the diet, at which relation between
this country and America will be discussed.
The correspondent of the Associated
Press, who has just returned to Tokio
from a visit to many of the larger cit
ies of the far east, found some uneasi
ness everywhere recording relations
between Japan and the United States.
In well-informed circles these mis
givings appeared to be based more
upon what was described as "Japan's
resentment to anv American policy cal
culated to curb Japanese expansion in
Asia" than upon (be California ques
tion. The latter problem while touch
ing Japan's national prestige and the
interests of Japanese in America, is
apparently not regarded with the same
seriousness as the question of Japan's
vital interests near Nippon.
In diplomatic circles here the opin
ion prevails that the situation does
not justify the pessimism noticeable
outside the borders of the Japanese em
pire. Un the contrary, it takes tne
view that the attitude of both the
Tokio and Washington governments is
based on confidence that a solution for
troublesome matters now in the fore
groimd will be discovered. Japan's
popular protests airainst California
legislation appear to have been fol
lowed bv an attitude of patience and
restraint, cognizance being- taken of
the fact that America has encountered
genuine difficulties in finding a solu
tion for the triple problem of satisfy
ing popular opinion on the Pacific slope.
serving Americas national interests
and meeting Japan's desires.
Efforts of the American state de
partment, through Ambassador Roland
S. Morris, have profouny impressed
the Japanese with the fairness of the
United States.' For this reason the
killing of Lieutenant Langdon is gen
uinely regretted here because it is be
lieved it will have the effect of re
opening the entire question of Japa
nese military occupation of Siheria.
concerning which America ha in the
past sent several protests to Tokio.

standing automobile of Fred Letour
neau on the Graniteville road.
The car was stalled by Mr. Letour
neau at the extreme right of the road
jifst above the Bout well station in
Graniteville, when three little lads
came dashing down the hill on sleds. He
turned his car, a new Studebaker, to
the extreme right of the road, fearing
that some one of them would become
bewildered and run into him. The first
three steered by safely but little Ke
ough evidently lost control of his sled
when it started down the steep pitch
near this point and, when he new un
der the car, his head struck a grease
cup and broke it off completely.
His skull was punctured on the right
side and a piece of ,bone as large as a
quarter destroyed some brain tissue
deep cuts ran the length of his face on
the left side, all the teeth on the low
er left side of his jaw, except ifke, were
knocked out; his lower jaw was frac
tured, and his left thigh was broken.
The lad went under the car at terrific
speed and, when, Mr. Letourneau and
Miss Beatrice Duquette, his cousin, rid
ing with him, endeavored to get the
lad out he had to be taken out between
the front and rear wheels. Mr. Letour
neau rushed him to the home of Dr. K.
H. Bailey, nearby, in his car, and the
doctor, after administering first aid,
brought the boy in the same car to
the Barre City hospital and there per
formed the operation required to re
move the skull bone from the brain,
as well as other operations.
No blame is attached to Mr. Letour

upper Graniteville and who is employed
on tne quarries as an engineer.

ever, the trouble was discovered early
