High German Official Regrets Amer
ica Yields to Upstarts,
lorlin, Feb. 11 . The anxiety of
President Koonovelt to acevde to the de
mand of the Jajvmeso in the Califor

bad impression here, osxeially in mil
itary and diplomatic circles, where the
whole affair has been watched from the
A very high otlicial in the foreign
department, who is closer than any
other man to the minister of foreign
affairs, yesterday said:
"It is a great pity that a great nation
like America shall U forced by circum
stances to give in to these Japanese up
starts, w ho will now glow moie conceit
ed than ever.
"It is evident that Japan is Irving to
pick a quarrel w ith the I'nitcd States,
and that a conflict is lound to come,
for it is the purpose of the Jajvwiese to
drive every white jvtwor out of the Far
Fast. I have no doubt that, if Ameri
ca had a strong navy today, your presi
dent's reply to the mikado's ultimatum
would have had another sound, but,
under the circumstances, the Tinted
States is too weak to risk the loss of
their prestige in a war in which Japan
would have every advantage, and when
vou would be unable to defend either
Hawaii or the Philippines.
"Germany also has important inter
ests in the Fa.-t and, while the Geinian
government will use every effort to
