" Unsolved, Hint poverty is n soeinl disease that ennj

Judge Neil, in his challenge, say that ho expects to
prove the following in the Uebate:
That charity dee not relievo poverty to any onatdnrablo extont.
That poverty Increase at a hlKlicr rate than uontrlbutlona to charity.
That mother and children arc separated and famlllo brokon up aim

A OKKrAN pajier, widely reprinted in America, has
printed a summary of a book it says is being cir
culated in 'Japan, which attacks the United States as the
areh-enomy of Japan, and gloats over the prospective de
feat of America as the aim and desire of the .Japanese na
tion. The following is a sample excerpt:
Our great Idea and aystem today In order to vanquish California, to
own the Sandwich Islands, Samoa and the Philippines-- Is that wo must all
save, first our ntrength and necondly, every en thnt wo can.
All our prorowior must Imbue their Htudenu with the realization Hint
the United Rtatea I our liiKiiltliiK enemy! They must -and they will
teach those who are yet too young to nerve, nil the crookedne of the Unit
ed State, calling upon their young heart to fight nobly against Amorlcan
.In reply to such bombastic utterances, R Kumasaka,
Japanese cnnsjil at Portland, recently said at a banquet:
On the other aide of the oceun my good peoplo'nre of ton haunted by
the nightmare of an American Invntdon. They were told that when tho
I'linuma canal wn opened and the naval bane at I'eiui Harbor was com
pleted America would be ready to gobble up Japan. 1 bellevo It I the duty
of Mane men on both aide of the ocean to get together and atamp out thoao
uouaeiiaicHi nut micuier-provoKing cauarua.
To me and to you nlo, I trnat, the Pacific ocean look big onouglj for
liolhAmerlca and Japan to get along without trouble. "We will certainly
not have It mile we liuiat on finding It. The vast expanie of water be
tween it I no longer a barrier, but n amooth highway which wo utilize
fpr trade and general lutercourae. We ahould be lacking In seimo If we did
uotjunko tho moit of It,
It is entirely within the bounds of probability that no
such book ever circulated in Japan, and that it is a fic
tion perpetrated by our clever Gorman friends to stir up
trouble in America. If there is such a book, it is the work
of some crazy .Japanese jingo whose counterpart exists in
the American yellow press endeavoring to stir up trouble
between two friendly nations, for there exists no earthly
reason why there should be a quarrel, now or in the future,
between the I'uited States and Japan.
The German wish is the father of the thought.
