friendship was expressed by mem
bers of a Japanese perliamentary
eoaunittee which arrived in San
Francisco today from Honolulu,
tot a tour of the United States.
Admiral Baron Sotokichi Uriu

of the Japanese diet, and leader
ot the party of statesmen, declar
ed the committee had no real pur
pose in coming to the United

Japanese saying that "seeing once
is better than hearing one hundred
! Members ot the parliamentary
party, especially Mr. Nakanisbi.
said they were surprised to hear
talk ot a clash between the United
States and Japan. He Eaid this
was "unthinkable" and expressed
his belief that problems which

-The island ot Yap question is
causing no excitement in Japan,
declared Takeo Tanaka, repre
sentative of the Kenseikel or op
position party, who is a member
of the parliamentary mission.
"It Is my belief," he said, "that
Japan will be reasonable about
fortifications on the island if Am
erica continues to' object."

He declared he was against a
large navy for Japan and said his
party., and others in the minority
were resisting the present build

One of the most remarkable ex
periences encountered yeBterday
in the collection of old clothing
and toys for the famine sufferers
of Armenia happened when a man,
dressed in shabby clothing en
tered Kafoury's store, where some
of the bundles were being left, and
asked If he might give the very
coat off his back for the good of
the cause. The coat was almost
beyond use but there were still
parts which would cover the body
of some sufterer. One good pocket
remained in the coat and the man
explained that it would hold
something and that it might be
of some use.
Man RcfuM-s Aid.
When urged to keep the coat
because he probably needed.it the
generous-hearted man said that
someone else needed it more than
he. He refused an offer of assis
tance for himself.
Five tons, or 10,000 pounds of
clothes and cast off toys were
gathered up yesterday by members
of the city council and the Boy
Scouts and members of the scout
council for the relief of the fam
ine stricken Armenians. All who
were missed on the first day, ac

DUBLIN, May 25. (By
The Associated Press) The
Dublin custom house is in
ruins tonight and all the most
important documents of the
government relating to Ire
land together with papers and
records have been destroyed.
1 This, Dublin Castle official
ly announces, is the work of :
Sinn Fein forces, which early ,
this afternoon made the most
formidable attack , against
government property that has
been engineered aince the :
present revolution began.
r. Employes of the depart
ments housed in the building .
Were made prisoners, vast!
quantities of petrol were
jpoured over the interior of the i
building and the light was ap
plied. Soon military lorries
crowded with" soldiers ap
peared and a battle ensued.
The Sinn Feiners occupied the
Customs house and from the
Windows, met the soldiers
with a heavy fire. Machine
guns and rifles responded and
a strong cordon was thrown:
around the building.
" When the flames became
too hot, the raiders attempted
to escape but several were
shot and killed and many
