East Is Not Feared
Personally I do not fear what i*
hidden in the womb o! the east. I do
not take the alarmist view of eastern
problems. Nevertheless it is the duty
of every statesman to recognize tho
enormous potentialities for good and
evil in the progressive millions which
form the mod. m eastern races. This
is especially so since the indutsrlal
development of China and Japan lias
sowed the seeds of unrest.
The danger that Europe faced
from a handful of German intriguers
was trifling compared with the possi-
bilities of danger from the renascent
millions in the east. 1 therefore hold
that it is essential for America, Aus-
tralia and Canada to achieve a com-
plete unity in their aims and policies
in all Pacific questions.
Should March Together
"We should be careful to continue
to walk together and to do nothing to
force the eastein and western races
to march along divergent paths. The
eastern races are different from the
western races but l hey are net neces-
sarily interior. Australia does not re-
gard the Japanese as inferior, but as
a race apart, with their own ideate. It
ie not desirable tor America, Canada
and Austrila to adopt a policy of
aloof superiority towards Japan."

In the midst of an address one of

dance, declaring he was "reformed."

four revolvers blazed forth, filling the
room with clamor and smoke.
Not oLt* of the visiting party
flinched .Miss Tappan gave out a
song. "Where Is My Wandering lluy
lonlglit." It made Jud mud. It
caused him to think of his mother
"Shoot her up again I" he shouted,
leaping upright on a bench and pro-
ducing a buttle. "Here, all hands take
a drink I"
There was no shooting and no drink
hig Jud hud missed his fooling.
When Jud Hansoiu returned to con
sciousness the meeting was over. Oul}

It «s a quesilon uf varied discus-

weak, dumpish daze. When he got

no work and waudeied about in soil

he felt himself becoming a weakling,
and one dark night Jud left the Gap—
a broken man.
He got as far as Hlgbee. He had
to keep going, nerve lust or not, he
told himself. A prospecting company
offered him a grubstake to try and
locate new claims. Jud had been
educated as a mining engineer. That
had drifted him West. He took up
