Chinese situation which read in part:
"It would not be easytto parallel such
demand from one powV to another as
Japan has made on China, In many re
apecta they are more stringent than the
Austrian demands on Serbia which led to
.European war and China has done noth
ing to Incur such a penalty. It offered
no menace to Japan and It wanted only
to enjoy Its own liberties In Its own way.
"If China had been a military nation,
able it never would have been thus chal
lenged. It has neither the will nor the
power to take an unfriendly and Ir
reconclllable course twoard its powerful
neighbor and it is grotesque to suggest
that it la responsible for the crisis.
"It Will be the last and the most bitter
tragedy of this war if one of Its con
sequences be that an unoffending nation
whose Independence and lntregrlty tho
Anglo-Japanese alliance has guaranteed.
Is to be despoiled by one of the signa
tories of that alliance."
