Japan's Friendship True.
New York Speaking from tho
standpoint of 30 years' experience, tho
Right Rev. Hcrriman C. Harris de
clares that Japanese friendliness for
the people of the United Staes Was a
striking characteristic not only of the
government, but of tho people.
"Japan is bound to Great Britlsn by
the close and definite terms of an alli
ance, but good feeling toward Ameri
ca is inherent among the people; it Is
traditional. I would not bo going too
far in ssying thst the good will toward
this country which you encounter ev
erywhere among the people as well as
among thoso in official lifo is more
than a matter of mere friendly senti
ment. It has been in evidence in Jap
an for 50 years and as I said, Is some
thing which young generations of Jap
anese are taught to accept as a part
almost of national feeling.
"Now this may sound strange, but I
know it is true."
