addressing the lower house of the Diet to

California legislature wifl rot lead te ln

Is relying upotr the Justice of tlie American
people and the friendly disposition of the
Vi.tted States government.
Tlie " foreign minhrter dmelt t length

America. He said; . VsT'""-- ,- .
The friendship of Jape a the Timed
States is tradttlemal, and it h absolutely
essential that both -snamtaln on impaired,
these sentiment of amity and rsrsrod and
strengthen Ihera by every means. Not
withstanding the perfect accord which has
always rxisted regarding the alms of the
two countries in the far east it appears
dcrbts have been expressed in some quar
ter concerning the sli culty of th inten
tions. "In orfier to remove this misunderstand
ing th two government have deemed It
advisable to exchange diplomatic notes,
officially announcing a eomraon policy,
which I am convinced will be largely in
strumental in preserving the repose of the
Belle aa Aaaeraraa J eat Ice.
"With regexd to the question cf lejnrla
tict unfavorable to Janansae now pending
m California the imperial government ia
relying on the sense of Americsn rw-ople,
together with the friendly disposition of
the federal government, and is confident
that the, question will not lead te interna
Japan." the minister went on. "therefort
bring on cordial terms with all the powers,
including those which have not lieen men
tioned, it must be admitted that the main
tenance of peace, which is the one prin
cipal object of our foreign poliry, ia roa
practically assured; and we are enabled tf
devote our endeavors te the development
of our national resources. The first point
claiming our attention 1 the pr;.bm of
In view of the new international condi
tions assigned te Japan It haa Uumt
necessary that our pecple instead of scat
tcring in foreign land, shall con oent rale in
the far east, thus securing a united erfort
looking t legitimate activities and avoid
ing everything likely tu obstruct th devel
opment of international commerce and in
dustry. "These conditions have led the govern
ment to follow an avosed policy with
reapect to emigrants to Canada, and the
C Hi ted Spates, enforcing in perfect good
faith the restriction placed on emigration."
Count Komura concluded hia speech by
announcing that the imperial government
has decided te notify the various powei i
next wetJt of the termination of existing
commercial treaties, to be effective one
year after auch notice waa given. He said
it was the intention of the government to
exchange treaties, "unhampered by any un
equal ecgagtments." The new contract, he
continued, will be based entirely upon the
principle of reciprocity with a view ta the
tree development of intern tlnns! emmeroa.
The torcJgn minister speech was re
ceived with applause by the government
side of the house, but Count Hattori. an
opposition Tnnmber, immediately began a
! bitter sensational attack on th tuneign
i policy of the government. Ha said that
Japan had ns determined f oreign policies
j and that thta waa ahowa by her present
'attitude toward America, a here Japanese
were denied an equal opportunity and went
even abused by American. The recant
events, he said, had proved that the anti
Japanes sentiment tn America had not
subsided. The speaker attacked aarticularly
tha recently concluded agreement between
Japan and America, earing be believed the
Japanese foreign effios was farced by the
Americas government id siga the agree
