PURPOSE OF JAPAN
One of Her Diplomats Defines
Policy of Empire.
NO DESIGN ON PHILIPPINES
Such Policy Ajralnst Japan's Inter
ests Does Xot 'Claim Exclusive
Influence Over China I m
.migration Will Decline.
CLEVELAND. Oct SI. EM HJokl, first
secretary of 'the J&panese Legation at
Washington, delivered an address to the
members of the Cleveland Chamber of
Commerce this evening, bte subject being
"Japan, America and the Orient." In
view of the fact that Mr. Hlokl's address
was practically the first official utterance
trom a Japanese source concerning the
situation in, the Far East since the close
of the war. It was considered significant,
and attracted much attention. Mr. Hioki
said, in part:
Seeing that certain questions are receiv
ing more or leas attention of the thinking
class of people in this and other countries,
it may not be without value to express at
tliis opportunity my humble views on
One the yellow peril: In spite of the
influence which nnc- it gained, the doc
trine of the yellow eril awms to have
practically lost its hold on men's minds,
at least In America.
Would Tiol Fight Beat Friend.
Two Japan has no designs on the Phil
ippines: If a bona fide statement of re
sponsible partie tails to convince, let us
try a brief argument. Laying aitfde en
tirely for the moment, for the sake of
argument, the consideration of the motive
ot Japan regarding tne present subject,
let me ask you a question. Can you be
11 eve that this great American people,
who glory in their National .spirit, in their
gigantic strength. In their boundless
wealth, in their marvelous development,
and who look forth with proud ami con
lident anticipation to the lime when they
shall be the first in the race civilization
has set for man to run, would allow her
Hag to be lowered, be it in the Philip
pines or any other place which legitimate
ly belongs to her by any hands but hers?
No. most emphatically, no. That is the
spirit with which you cling to your new
x)ssessions in the Pacific, and that ought
t'i be more the .spirit of the Americans
than the Japanese.
Therefore, if Japan harbored such a. sin
ister design as is attributed to her. .he
must be prepared to plunge in a war
far more gigantic than the one Just end
d, against a nation to which she owes
much of what site is -today, and to whose
people she owes that moral and financial
support so unreservedly given at the most
critical period In her history- No. The
Philippines are not worth the sacrifice of
such a valuable friendship as that of
America, and the enormous losses in men
and money which such a war would nec
Japan's Influence in China.
Three The open-door policy In China:
The increased prestige of Japan turned
the eyes of the world toward the problem
of what Influence Japan will wield over
China. Without questioning the value of
the principles contained in the so-called
Monroe Doctrine or Its applicability to
the Western situation at present, I can
simply say that such an idea lias not en
tered into Jauaness minds.
Four Japanese influences in China ben
eficial to the whole world: It is a mat
ter for congratulation for Japan as well
s for all other nations that there is a
fair prosHct of the increase of Japanese
influence in China as a result of her In
Five Industrial and commercial devel
opment of Japan: The last war with
Russia has Increased the national debt of
Japan to the amount of 0.OO9.OOO. whose
interest alone requires nearly JSO.OW.OOO
annually. It is. indeed: a heavy, an enor
mous burden, and every dollar of It. in
terest and principal, must be paid.
Immigration Will Increase.
Sixth Japanese immigration into the
T'nited States: It is se ri frequently print
ed in newspapers that, when the war with
Russia is over and the army of 700.090
men in Manchuria is disbanded, the Pa
cific Coast will be flooded with Japanese
immigrants. Such a statement cannot
be regarded as an expression of a serious
opinion, because, uules that enormous
army o.f Japanese had at once descended
from the sea just for the purpose of war.
there can be no reason why its disband
ment should cause any increase of Immi
gration to the United Suites, or anvwhere
else. There Is every reason to believe
that Japane.se Immigration to the United
State will considerably decrease.
Seven The future of the Orient: The
Orient, with more than half the popu
lation and more than one-third of the
land of the entire world, and commerce
amounting to onlv $X.0.09.0&0 annuallv.
that Is. only a little over one-seventh of
the total trade of the world, offers al
most unlimited fields for future develop
ment. MONROE DOCTRINE IX ORIENT

wife, who is remaining In that institution
until fully recovered from a recent opera

band. Baron von Sternberg is the author of a
very striking definition of the situation
reated in the Far East, Jn conversation
with a friend, he aaid: j

tries have established a Monroe doctrine

He expressed himsolf hopoful that a

Smart Shoes for Dressy
Men and Stylish Women
The "Boote Shoppe" 1st Floor, 6th-St. Annex.
Two things are absolutely requisite in the dress
of men who care for that personal appearance which
means so much to success in life. No matter how
carefully the tailor has looked to the clothescraft
-of the garments that help to constitute a man's
wardrobe, if the hatter ami the shoemaker have not
been called in, then the effect is spoiled. A hat oft
times covers a multitude of sins of omission and
commission in the male garb that a perfect-fitting
pair ol smart shoes helps to ex
cuse. It costs no more to dress
the feet correctly and comfort
ably than it does to make them
look gawkish and feel uncom
fortable and really ill. But you
must come to the store that
knows how. This store is in the
shoe business with all its might ;
is better equipped in every way
than ay other AVestcm store to

done. New models are here such
