JAPANESES NAVAL EXPANSION TO BE
EMPHASIZED FOR NEXT EIGHT YEARS
By Ralph H. Tumor
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
TOKIO, Fob. 5. Expansion of tho
Japanese navy today is considered
more important by tho government
than reduction of tho country's na
tional debt. This vlow was oxpresBed
horo by Kazuye Shoda, minister of
Shoda's atatoment came na on ex
planation and defence ot the Torau
chl ministry's announcement that be
ginning with the fiscal year of 1918
19 and continuing until Japan's
sovon-year naval program is finished,
110.000,000 ot the $25,000,000,
which the government had set aside
for the annual redemption ot tho na
tional dobt will be used in the con
struction of warshlpB.
This doclslon moans 'that tho re
cent restoration ot the sinking fund
to its former figure of $25,000,000
Is to be for one year only and is con
tradictory to tho principle by which
the Torauchl ministry Increased the
fund from $16,000,000 to $25,000,
000. The rocont poace talk and Its de
moralization of tho Tokio stock ex
change hnB just glvon Japan a taste
of what hor condition will be after

ot $130,320,085. It Is proposed to
build three battleships ot tho supor-drendnought-type,
and soveral light cruUorB, des
troyers, auxiliary vossols and subma
rines In tho sovon fiscal years begin
ning 1917-18. With tho conclusion
of this program tho Japanese naval
authorities will havo roallzed tholr

WHITE PINE WOULD
SUFFER, IS PLEA.
Mliter Wood are Ilcrlmliuited
Agttlnut, Declare Ilnd Mill Of
ficial Postponement of
Rate Increase Aid.
Both of the big lumber companies
In Bend are unalterably opposed to
the Each plan of fixing lumber
frloght rates, according to state
ments made this morning by T. A.
McCann, of The Bhevlln-Hlxon Com
pany, and Harry K. Brooks, ofj the
Brooks-Bcsnlon Lumber Co. Their
objections have been filed with the
Western Pine Manufacturers Assoc
iation, to be presented to the Inter
state Commerce Commission through
Would Hit Bend Mills.
The basis of the Esch plan is the
fixing of 50,000 pounds as the aver
age car load of lumber, and making
no distinction between kinds, giving
a reduced rate on carloads above that
weight, and exacting a higher rate
on loads ot less than that amount.
The sponsor ot the plan Is Fred
Escb, ot Washington, D. C, exam
Iner for the commission.
Mr. Brooks declared this morning
that the chief objection to the plan
is the fact that it would discriminate
between heavy and light woods, plac
ing the advantage with the producer
of the heavier lumber. "The plan
Isn't practical, and wouldn't work
out," be said. "The shipper of light
lumber might have a carload ot 48,-
000 pounds, and would be charged
the 40,000 pound high rate for it,
while the manufacturer shipping a
62,000 pound load would get the
benefit of the lower rate."
Old Rate to Hold.
Mr. McCann'a objections were based
on virtually the same grounds. "The
Bend white pine manufacturers
would be discriminated against in
favor of the fir producers. We are
certainly opposed to the Esch plan,
but our objections are being handled
through the association," he said.
Both mills will benefit by the post
ponement ot the rate Increase In the
Central Freight Association terri
tory from February 1 to Juno 1. Be
cause ot the shortage of cars, much
lumber was sold In that section,
based on the old rate, and has not
yet been delivered. By virtue of the
extra time given, it Is felt that the
contracts can be filled before the
tariff advance goes into effect.
Tho total appropriation ot $130.
320, 805 will be apportioned as fol
lows: 1917- 18 $ 7.164,604
1918- 19 11,596,919
1919- 20 20,869,713
1920- 21 25,655,348
1921- 22 27,570.224
1922- 23 12,466,429
Announcement ot this program,
coming on the heels of the bill which
will double the fighting capacity ot
the American fleet, has created much
Interest here. This interost has been
considerably heightened by the con
tention of a large section of the Jap
anese press that the naval expan
sion ot the United States Is directed
at Japan. .
As for Japan's determination to
strengthen her sea power, even if
hor national debt must suffer, there
are arguments aplenty both for those
who would Justify hor move and oth
ers who insist It Is an aggressive
Constder Japan's position In the
world, say members ot the latter
class. She Is Lord of the Orient. Al
ready equipped with a mighty army
ond nn efflciont navy, she enjoys a
position of unparallelqd security. She
Is firmly unltod In alliance with
Groat Britain, the strongest sen
power, and has joined In a close
ngreomont with hor near and power
ful neighbor, Russia.
There are many factors In dofonse
ot Japan's naval policy. Tho etid of
the war will bob a readjustment ot
power all ovor the world. In the
British and German navies come out
of tho struggle approximately In
taot, Japan will occupy a humble
place in the naval hlerachy, made
all the more humblo by America's
groat expansion plans,
