Crisis Indicated in Relations
With U. S.
DEEP ENMITY IS STIRRED
Congressional Probe Causing Un-
easiness and Tourists Under
TOKIO, July 29. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) The Japanese govern
ment has received a communication
from the United States pointing out,
among other things, that America is
unable to recognize Japan's occupa
tion of the northern half of the island
of Saghalin. The Nichl Nichl says of
the nature of the protest, however,
that the impression exists here that
the communication is not really a
protest but rather an exposition of
tne American viewpoint on occupa
tions of Russian territory, with some
thing of America's attitude towards
the territory to be occupied.
" is apparently leu nere tnat any
publication of the details of the note
should emanate from Washington and
not Tokio. Meanwhile it is consid
ered likely that Japan, after mature
deliberation, will forward an answer
to Washington in an attempt to
clarify official opinion there and re
move any misunderstanding of
Japan s position.
Appearances iere indicate that
Japan is passing through another
"nervous crisis" concerning her rela
tions with the United States. Numer
ous interpellations have been made in
the diet about the American attitude,

are counselling their readers to keep
cool, it is apparent that a certain
amount of apprehension exists con
cerning tne result of the congres
sional inquiry in California.
Among the incidents which have
tended to fan ant-American feeding
was the publication here of the re
ports that the burning of Japanese
stores in JMarysviiie, Cal., was pos
slbly the act of anti-Japanese ele
