Th Bee.) Ymir' correspondent Interviewed
Mr. Tokutoml. editor and proprietor of the
newspaper Kokuniln, thla morning on hie
return from a three months' tour In China
and Manchuria. He suya the lmprcaaion
left by hla extensive travels In north and
central China Is certainly pessimistic, aa
evidences of anti-foreign feeling abound.
He commehta on the lack of gratitude In
the Chinese character for the services
rendered by Japan and other countries and
describes Peking as a hotbed of latent hos
tility. The Japanese are Included, he said,
In thla anti-foreign movement. He appre
hends grave troubles In the not distant
A question that Is constantly being dis
cussed by Japanese who take an Interest
in International politics Is the attitude of
China In the changed conditions of uffaira
In the east After Japan's great victory
over Russia it was thought that a new
feeling would be developed amongst the
mora educated young men la Peking and
the other great Chinese cities. The Idea
waa that, aa a result of the Japanese sue
caaa, China had suddenly awakened to the
possibilities of what Its own people might
do. And It was not altogether unjustified.
The Chinese, had sufficient Intelligence to
aee that If they were not to fall entirely
behind In the race they must emulate the
Japanese example. They sent their young
men to Japan to be educated, urged on by
Chlaeae Dislike Japanese.
In the meantime It Is Interesting to note
that while the Chinese are taking advantage
uf the education that has been given them
by the Japanese, both in matter of war
and. In matters of peace, they still look
upon that nation with contempt, as they did
before the first buttle of the Yalu in ls4.
It seems a strange development, for most
students of the relations between the two
jrellow races of the east naturally thought
that the Chinese would have felt grate
ful to the Japanese for the great stroke
, thsy did for their common race during the
war against , Russia..' The Chinese, how-
. aver..u.Appears, are not In the least arate-
,". ful. They remain where they were before
. , the opium war and the days when General
Qordon put down the Talping rebellion. The
Question is, is thla a mere deception on the
part of these strange people? It must be
remembered that the Chinese have on many
occasions during their long history acted
In ways which were not quite understood
by Europeans . or other outsiders. The
mind of the Chinaman has never yet been
penetrated by the European, and" when it
N is suggested that China may one day soon
become a great world power. It is simply
because it has, obviously, refused to play
the part of second Hddle to Japan.

Session Mar See
LONDON, Sept. 1. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) The most Important political
event of the past few months is the split
between the liberals and the laboritea. The
Independent labor party's quarrel with the
government has assumed a new phase by
the determined effort which the labor rep
resentation committee Is now making to
capture the members of the Miners' fed
eration, who have hitherto been character
ised by their sturdy Independence.
The miners' leaders are Intensely opposed
to affiliation to the labor representation
committee.. They declare that body was
founded by socialists. Is controlled by a so
clallstlo majority on Its executive commit
tee and Is working Insidiously toward so
cialism. The Cockermoulh election, i
three-cornered fight, resulting in the tri
umph of the unionist, has greatly accentu
ated all difficulties.
The great split was practically officially
announced by the under secretary for the
colonies, who, although he occupied a minor
position In the government, speaks In pub'
He with the authority of a minister of the
crown. He declared In a speech at Wlm
borne that no great party would put up
with such treatment as the liberals had re
ceived from the labor party, resulting In
the defeat of the liberal candidate at Cock-
ermouth In a thre-coifrered fight.
Liberals Vote for Socialists.
"We cannot forget that every member of
the socialist party waa returned by thou
sands of liberal votes," he said. "If some
of these gentlemen go about handing over
liberal fortresses to our Tory opponents
they cannot complain If liberal electors In
their own constituencies look about for
representatives of their own political view."
When the labor representation commit
tee waa formed ft came to an agreement
with the liberal party wirepullers that Ita
candidates should not be opposed by of
ficial liberals If the local circumstances
permitted. The arrangement worked ex
cellently to all appearances and thirty of
the labor representation committee candt
dates were returned at the .general election,
aa well as twenty other labor members
who fought .atith-the help .of the official
liberal party. "'' ..
' Aa soon as Parliament sat the Inevitable
quarrel broke out.
Blf Henry Camphell-Bannerman expected
the allegiance of the socialists. He waa
sadly disappointed. Mr. Kelr Hardie soon
showed that the aspirations of the premier
wuuiu reenvo very snore snin ai ma nanus.
When Qaarrel Brsjaa.
The first quarrel arose as early as the
first week in March, when the labor mem
bers assailed the postmaster general over
the appointment of a committee, and car
ried their protest to the length of voting
against the government in a division. The
government then capitulated and gave way
to the labor members. Constant bicker
Ings and flank attacks on the government
by Mr. Kelr Hardie and hla followers fol
lowed. Early in May the quarrel broke out again
when, . over the appointment of another
committee, Mr. Kelr Hardie and Mr. Will
Crooks led anotfinr attack on the govern
ment and incidentally repudiated the twenty
liberal labor members, and declared that
they alone were entitled to apeak for the
working classes. On this occasion the gov
ernment waa again forced to divide against
the socialists. . ,
The trades dispute bill has proved a con
stant source of dispute between the gov
ernment and the labor members. The gov

It la confidently predicted that the alight

"But I remember that Essex eoujity gave

to come to aee you," said he, "and I
hoped that by coming here I could help a
democrat to be elected to the United State
senate over Senator Dryden and two demo
crats to be elected to congress."
Mr. Bryan declared that republican
strength was waning and that the time for
democratic success Is not far distant. "In

that was heard In our home for thirty
yeara Is still In death. That ' vole thai

and right. I uaed to take great pleasure

young wife, when we started housekeeping
and I have read them to my children and
