Japan," Mr. Vrooman aald:
"The rumora of our possible war with
Japan are of euch a character aa to
challenge the eerloua attention of every
thoughtful rttlsen ofour go""1"; and
fFftsny evryuwrtir tn raeino ee,
"The hour la at hand for ua to awaken
tn a realization of our danger and to
brain at once upon precautionary ana
defensive measures, aome of which
purpoae of thla addreaa -to set
Should Ctuay !.
"But before considering meaauree of
precaution and defense let ua take a
look at the altuatlon. The situation
presents, tlrst. some things that - are
plainly manifest; econd. som - thing
that are highly probable; third, aome
things that are altogether possible, and,
fourth and last, but not least, things
whose aeemlng Impossibility cannot be
proved. These things whose seeming
impossibility we cannot prove must be
in a measure portentious until thla
proof is eecured. We will consider theae
thlnga In their order.
First The thing unmistakably manl
iest is mat japan is concentrating inv
entirety of her powers aa a nation In
carrying forwnrd aome well-planned and
far-reaching strategic movement which,
probably, la no leaa ambitious than to
secure permanent military control of
the Pacific The rapidity pf her prog
ress on th Pacific, since her victory
over Russia, la In ratio with th rapid
ity of her rise aa a nation since the
time, but a few years ago, when It first
occurred to her to become a world
power. And her rise aa a nation atanda
out unprecedented among all the na
tions during all th ages. . Th pace of
her progress on th Pacific light now Is
li ill ui w rnunrimi v. . w u..v.
Urge Jap to Coma Her.
7 "Second The highly probablrhinr la
vnaw ror economic inq cumineruini u-
vantagea and for securing rener to ner
home congestion of population and for
the sake of prestige, Japan is seeking
aggressively to Increase, aa rapidly aa
possible, th influx of her own people
into our Pacific coaat states. '
"Third An altogether possiDi ining
Is that. In addition to a ecu ring economic
and commercial advantagea and - relief
10 ner noma vongcBuua di yuyuimum
and greater prestig aa a nation, she is
encouraging her own people to come
here as rapidly an "possible- forth -aka
of military advantage.
"Japan Is providing for Invaluable
assistance to ner causa. In th possible
event of war with us. at any time soon
or in th distant future, by establishing
her own veoole In our states. This la
true because we could never expect of
any Japanese, whether n became a nat
uralised citizen of thla country or not,
to sympathise with thla country or not,
posed to Japan. But, on th contrary,
we would alwaye expect him to render
any service to Japan that might be pos
sible in time of war. - . , i .
. - Mm Ooaa cm .
" "It ther should ever be war between
the United States and ; Japan there
would be on our ahorea In advance of
hostilities what would b practically
equivalent to a many Japan soldiers
as there are Japanese In our midst.
"Fourth The thing which has not yet
been proved to be impossible la the suc
cessful carrying out of a particular
stratagem on the part of Japan by which
she would be la possession of th Pa
cific coaat cities of America, holding the
people of Portland, San Francisco, jo
Angeles. Seattle and the other large
cities aa hostages of war and seizing,
ss th prise of war, all property other
than real estate before the American
fleet of war vessels arrive thla eld
of Cap Horn next spring. Th fact
that we do not know that auch a strate
gic coup for them and calamity for ua

And If It should b among the posslbl
things we may be sure that Japan
"Th precautionary and defensive
measures which I present herewith.
without hesitancy, aa blng amply Justi
fied by the fact of th situation, are
three In number: , - ' .
"First A public opinion should at
one be created of auch a virll charac
ter aa to prevent our own people from
Jiving employment of any kind to any
apanea. Thia would establish an eco
nomic condition which would, by per
fectly peaceable methods, mak It Im
possible for any large number of Jap
anese to remain In our midst. They
cannot remain wher thy cannot find
remunerative employment without be
ing supported by their own government.
And their government would support
none who wer her for any other rea
son than military. I should Ilk to
see publle opinion o strong In regard
to this matter that any man or woman
giving employment to a Japanese would
be considered as unfriendly to th pub
lic good and boycotted out of business
and social standing. , . .
Second A private detective agency
should operate under th ausplcea of a
citizens' organisation for th purpose
of ascertaining th number of Japanese
In the different cities and states, wher
they reside, what they do and other de
sirable information. .- , t
" , Keep Oma la Jrvary Moms. ' ' t .
Third A rlfl with plenty of am
munition should forthwith be In every
house where ther is a man Capable of
handling a gun. Thl alone would pre
vent any posslbl sudden uprising on
the part Of the Japaneee tn our midst,
because the success of any sudden at
tack would depend upon their blowing
up ' our armories and - powder maga
zines and confronting aa unarmed peo
ple. .. ' '
"Ther la on other precaution which
should be taken to give effectiveness to
these three special one. It la that pub
llo opinion should not tolerate even the
slightest unlawful acts of violence to
ward any Japanese. Every personal In
sult or act of discourtesy on the part
of any on toward a Japanese snouia
be punished summarily and to the full
limit of the law. Th' earn righteous
and satrlotlo Indignation which boy'
cotts th man giving employment to a
Japanese should punish without mercy
lu man who, without ample cause, does
personal harm t any Japaneae. The re
lation between ua aa lndl
be-that of friendship.'

If Satan were an editor, Rev. Shaffer
declare- th -policy of the "prlnc of
