Special dispatches from tho t'nited States describing; the recent conference at the American state de partinent between Secretary of State .Colby: Sir Auckland Oeddes, British ambassador to the United States; Ro land Morris. American ambassador to Japan, and Sir Bilisby Francis Alstrom, BritlRh minister to China, at which the general situation in the Far East was discussed and the suKgestion in some of the dispatches that Great Britain is showinK signs of joining the United States In her Far Eastern policy, have served to increase the nervousness here over Japanese-American relations. leading newspapers devote lengthy editorials to discussion of the situation and generally demand, that the Jap anese people show an unbroken front. The Nlchl Nlchl thinks the trouble with Japan's diplomacy lies in the fact that the authorities are "excessively timid and over-considerate of the feelings of other countries." They should take resolute action on-their own responsi bility, the newspaper says. Some Americans, adds the Nlchl Nlchl, interpret occupation of Saghalln as a gratification of territorial ambition, but If nnv .TnnnneRA ore barborintf such am bitions they are merely old-fashioned imperialists, jiven ir sucn men exmi, it nnnerfn. It In tin cause for concern. because the militarists who once threat ened to control the foreign policy are now Influenced by public opinion. The Hochi Shlmbun declares the cniintrv should not belittle the Impor tance of the American communication regarding Japanese occupation, which the newspaper considers virtually nrntest "Tnnan'o vaccinating diplomacy," It asserts, "has often brought contempt on Japan, particularly with regard to America." While deprecating rage over the American protest, the Hochi Shimbun savs: "lot us nrce no vielding to a protest based on suspicious imagination. We are anxious to see the problems of Japan and America settled amicably but there is a limit to our ijuiiruio. tr thlnirs heeome unbearable a state of affairs may occyr regrettable not only so far as Japanese-American re lations are concerned, but for the peace of the world. We hope the authorities will abide by the cause of justice and fear nothing." The Jiji Shimpo expresses fear that the congressional inquiry will have the effect of aggravating the anti-Japanese situation in California and will influ ence the minds of Americans generally. But the newspaper expects final con- ni.,ai nntinn will be based on .:.. i,,aftfA A memher of th diplomatic advisory council is quoted bv the Yorozu Choho as declaring that he can not understand the note from America as Japan has c. early -stated occupation of Saghalin region would be merely temporary, until reparation was made for the massacre of Japanese at Nikolaievsk. "In the name of justice," said the diplomat, "Japan should determinedly carrv out her announced program with out hesitation and irrespective of pro tests from any foreign power..TapanB step Is not contrary to International law: It Is an act of justice and right eousness."
