In dealing with the "yellow peril", as with any other peril,
it is well to keep one's perspective.

fave the impression that Japanese women, coming into
the state as the wives of men already there, were populat
ing all rural California with yellow children.
A little calm inquiry tends somewhat to allay the
fears thus inspired.
It is pointed out that the last federal census gives
California 41,000 Japanese, and the whole country 72,000.
, It is not likely that the number of Japanese males has
largely increased, because they are kept out by mterna-
. tional agreement. While recent figures are not given, it
seems quite unlikely that as many Japanese women have
come into California as there were men already there
the government would hardly admit more than a wife
' for each male.
,; Suppose, however, that there are as many as 40,000
' Japanese women in the state. There are estimated to be
; more than 2,750,000 people in California, altogether, of
" whom nearly half are white women. Obviously, the
' whites are still holding their own. - '
As for Los Angeles county, it contains altogether no
'. loss than 800,000 people. Even though it is the strong-
' hold of the Japanese invasion, it does not seem to be in
imminent danger of Japanization.
That ":'.000 per cent" is alarming enough; but its real
explanation is found not so much in the numbers of Jap
anese babies being born now in Los Angeles county as in
the fact that until the last few years there were hardly
any being born.
Yesterday there was a mass meeting of the followers
of Mooney, the dynamiter, and Dr. Marie Equi, the con
victed anarchist, held in Portland, at which the speakers
advocated and predicted the overthrow cf the government
and rule by soviet council on the plan supposed to be dom-

nani in nussia now. une speaker irom Boise, Idaho,
advised workers to go to that " city and get a
job on the ne wcapital building, stating that by repeated
strikes they could get their wages constantly increased,
since there was a desire to complete the work quickly and
the workers could take advantage of that fact. The en
tire meeting was devoted to the expression of anarchistic
viewsand no officials interferred to hinder the "red"
propaganda, now so industriously advocated by labor un
ion organizers and all other brands of professional agi
tators. There are, however, laws in' existence strong
enough to curb such uprisings against the government and
they should be enforced to the letter in order to avoid
more serious consequences later on.
