THE ORIENTAL MYSTERY
An authority on geography states
hat one can, say hardly anything
bout China without telling a lie. This
point is being demonstrated, unfor-
tunately, at present. While each ed-
ition brings more news of rioting in
and fight from Shanghai, Canton, or
Hong Kong, the explanations vouch-
safed are diagrametrically opposite.
Some one is telling the lie about
China. No progress can be made as,
long as such a condition prevails, for
when it prevails, true causes cannot
Resident celestials in Detroit have
organized a Council of Chinese organ
izations to tell why riots are being
held in their country. One would think
they might know. But a comparison
of what the Council says with infor-
mation that has come through from
China previously informs the nose that
something is rotten, and not in Den-
There is at present no way of de-
ciding positively what is the truth.
Here is the case as it stands:
The Council, declares that the
strikes began partly because foreign
factories have been trying. to intro-
duce child labor into China. Former
information says that the strikes
really hang on the pretext that child
labor was going to be abolished.
Working conditions in the factories
were very bad, the Detroit group goes
on to state. Working conditions are
worse in native factories, is the re-
ply, nevertheless in them the workers
are not striking. As an explanation
as to why there is a strike, dispatches
have said that Bolshevist agents are
stirring up the Chinese. This can-
not be, the Detroit Chinese reply,
there are no Bolshevists there.
The one point brought up by the
Qetroit organization that is not con-
tradicted by others at present is that
the extra-territorial treaties of for-
eign powers in China are unfair.
This can hardly be adjudicated by the
layman. If it is true, or if it is not
true but still is the cause of the dis-.
turbances, it is a time when diplom-
acy need not be afraid of the indignity
of speed in remedying it.
The .answer we. get, to every ques-
tion about the conditions in China
is yes-no. The result of this conflict--
ing propaganda, as some of it must
be, is too readily to- be foreseen. It
will prevent action. It will prolong
suffering. Already predictions are
that the riots may spread and that
certainly they will persist for a long
In the meantime, nothing except re-
lief work can be done until some oz-
der comes out of confusion. Valu-
able time is being wasted on the side
of foreigners, perhaps with malice
prepense by those behind the striks,
Chinese or Russian.
