Concessions Made to Secure
Good "Will of Towers.
TOKIO. May 22. Why Japan en
deavored to keep secret the fifth group
of the demands she presented to China
last January, shortly after the occupa
tion of the German position of Kiau
Chau by the Japanese, was explained
in the Diet today by Baron Kato, Min
ister of Foreign Affairs. There had
been previous indication that the
minority would center its opposition
on the Chinese question, voicing the
idea that the government should have
insisted on greater concessions.
Baron Kato called attention to the
fact that Japan was not in duty bound
to communicate these demands to the
powers. Japan believes she was jus
tified, he declared, in demanding the
concessions contained in the first four
groups. The fifth group did not rep
resent demands, but rather hopes.
"We had to see what China would
say about this fifth group," the For
eign Minister explained, "and there
was. therefore, no necessity of com
municating it. Iater, because of the
appearance of erroneous accounts of
this group, Japan decided to make the
German Influence Destroyed.
To an Interpellation as to why Japan
was restoring Kiau-Chau to China, the
Foreign Minister said lie was glad of
the opportunity to set forth the posi
ticn of the government, which was
based entirely on the destruction of
German influence in the Far East and
the maintenance of the integrity of
China. The restoration of Kiau-Chau
was not an incident of the negotiations,
but had been decided on before these
were undertaken. So long as no other
country held Kiau-Chau, Japan was
Replying to another question, Lieutenant-General
Oka. Minister of War,
denied that Japan has menaced China.
He explained that the date of the
changing of the garrisons In Manchuria
had merely been advanced.
Baron Kato was appla-uded when he
aid that most Japanese did not con
sider it a disgrace that the nation had
made concessions for the friendship of
China and in the interest of the friend
ship of the powers, including Great
Britain and the Vnited States.
Ration Needs More I'undfl.
Discussing in the Diet the govern
ment's needs for supplemental credits.
Count Okuma, the Premier, said the
failure of the Diet which was dissolved
to adopt the budget of 1910-16 had
compelled the government to follow
j tliabutitot of llio. previous year, -which
was Insufficient for the nation's needs
Foreign Minister Kato, who followed
the Premier, sketched at length the
negotiations with China, saying that
there was little to be reported on
Japan's foreign relations except in re
spect to the Chinese question. TTe said
treaties and notes with China soon
would be signed and presented to the
Emperor for ratification. All these
documents later will be submitted to
"When these agreements come into
force." Baron Kato said, "we shall see
the solution of a most important ques
tion, which long has been pending be
tween Japan and China to the detri
ment of their cordial relations. The
result will be a strengthening of
friendship and a solidification of the
peace of the Orient."
HudKrt Inrlndm War I'rovlnlon,
We made no reference to the atti
tude of other powers.
Minister of Finance Wakatukl an
nounced at the Diet session today that
the supplemental budget would call for
52.000.000 yen $ 26.000.000 , which
would be used for the creation of two
new army divisions, naval construction,
educational. industrial and harbor
works. The allotment for the navy is
1J. 000. 000 yen ($6,000,000). but no de
tails were given a-s to the purposes
for which it would be used. A request
was made for 13.000.000 yen ($6,500,
000) to conduct the war for the next
five months and 5.000.000 yen ($2,500,
000) for war incidentals.
The Finance Minister told the Diet
the war expenditures up to the present
time had been approximately 100,000.

MY DAY FETE IS HELD

Long Procession of Girls Precedes
C'rOTTning of Queen and Songs
Close Eventful Celebration.
TACIFIC UNIVERSITY. Forest Grove,
Or., May 22. (Special.) The second
annual May festival yesterday at
Pacific University was a great success
in spite of the frequent showers.
Perhaps the greatest event of the day
in the athletic line was the 6-to-0 vic
tory over Willamette University by
the championship Pacific nine.
The morning festivities were opened
by the long procession of girls com
ing from the library down the front
walk to the foot of the throne at
Marsh Hall. The queen was crowned
l.y Warren Tupper, president of the
student body. Many folk dances were
E'ven by 20 girls in costume, then the
beautiful wreath drill and the Irish jig.
The last event was the winding of the
May pole. Queen Ada and her maide
were the guests of honor at Herrick
Hall for luncheon.
A cafeteria supper was served on
the campus and the evening programme
started at 8 o'clock with a stunt by
the Gamma Sigma Society, the Camp
fire Girls following with a drill, and
tha Alpha Zeta Society put on a
hypnotic stunt. The wrestling match
for the school championship was won
by Ivon Donaldson over Max Iteeher.
The first throw was gained In four
minutes and the second In three.
The last number was the Gypsy
songs and dances and the good-night
number of college songs. It was by
far the best May day programme given,
and was attended by large numbers
of friends from out of town and by
hundreds of Forest Grove people.

Washington Hears Entry of
Balkan States May Hinge
on Allies' Success.
SPECULATION STILL RIFE
Germanic Diplomats Think Kou ma
nia. Bulgaria and Greece Would
Remain Xeutral it Turks Re
tain Hold on Straits.
WASHINGTON. May 22. Officials
and diplomatists here believed tonight
that the opening of hostilities between
Italy and Austria v would not long be
postponed and that such delay was due
to the fact that Italy's military prep
arations had not been completed.
The possibility of the entrance into
the war of Roumania, Bulgaria and
Greece continued as a subject of specu
lation in diplomatic quarters. Among
diplomatists of the Germanic cause, it
was suggested that the operations in
the Dardanelles within the next two or
three weeks probably would have an
Important bearing on the attitude of
the Balkan states. They believed that
should the allies fail to penetrate the
Dardanelles, the three states would re
main neutral, but that a victory by the
allies might considerably change the
course of events.
- Deal With Itoamanla Asserted.
On the other hand. It is asserted in
well-informed quarters that Roumania
has a definite agreement with Italy
and will follow the Rome government
in every step taken.
The severance of relations between
Italy and Austria, even to the limited
extent to which it has already taken
place, involving the cutting of the tele
graph and railroad lines, has made it
necessary for the State Department to
find another route for communications
with Berlin and Vienna. Heretofore
mails and cablegrams have been sent to
these capitals by the French cable and
land lines to Rome, whence they were
relayed to Austria and Germany.
Cable Rate Mar Change.
So far the State Department has
made almost no use of the radio sys
tem of communication and it is now
considerfng the routing of cablegrams
via The Hague or Copenhagen. Mails
probably will go via Sweden or Den
Two cablegrams reached the State
Department today from Vienna, coming
by way of Rome, showing that so far
communication has not been cut be
tween the two capitals.
Communication with Turkey is still
maintained by way of Greece, but it is
uncertain and cable messages frequent
ly require several days to or from Constantinople.
