-AUSTRALIA'S MONROE DOCTRINE
Australia has an Asiatic problem and a Monroe
doctrine closely allied to ours. If anything she feels
a still greater menace from her close geographical
position to the overflowing millions of Asia than we
do in this country, except, possibly, on the Pacific
coast, where apprehension is very strong. The peo-
ple of Australia and New Zealand are determined
that theirs shall be "a white man's country." They
repel any sort of invasion by the yellow races, peace-
ful or otherwise. r
When Australia demanded that she should have
control of all German islands south of the equator
in exclusion of Japan, limiting that country to those
north of the line, those who did notunderstand the
situation were disposed to accuse the Australians of
empire ambitions and colonial greediness. This was
a wrong estimate of the situation. It was a measure
of defense against inroad by the Asiatic races into
the South. Pacific.
This control is justified, in addition to creating a
barrier agairlst Asiatic invasion, by the principles of
our Monroe doctrine, the defense of their form of
democracy. The doctrine is defined by the Mel-
bourne Age. It says: "The voice of Australia must
be heard if our interests are to be safeguarded. In
all such rivalries as now exist there is one party
whose claims are superior to all others. In this case
Australia is that party. The principle underlying
the Monroe doctrine existed long before Monroe
lived. Territories not sufficiently developed for self-
government should prima facie be associated with
and controlled by the nearest country which' has a
"While that is not all there is to our Monroe doc-
trine, the principle of that doctrine justifies Aus-
tralia in guarding against any of the islands within
her geographical section falling into hands whose
government and racial instincts are antagonistic to
hers. Australia has the full right of self-protection,
especially if she recognizes that when she exercises
that right by taking control of islands populated by
people she cannot at once take into her own citizen-
ship she assumes an obligation to administer themI
for the welfare and uplift of the people, even to the
final extent of complete self-government or full citi-
zenship if such an attainment is possible. The same
obligation rests upon us in Sainoa.-St. Louis Globe-
JAPANESE LAND HOLDING
4A vague apprehension is in the minds of American
people living east of the Rocky Mountains, lest the
agitation in Califoriia against Japanese ownership
of land in this country should lead to international
complication. This is, of course, inspired by the
vigorous protests of the Japanese against legislation
now pending. It is probable, however, that the
Japanese people themselves do not take their pro-
testations too seriously. They have an elemental
sense of humor, which must show them the anomaly
of their position, for they are demanding of other
nations rights as aliens which they themselves do not
concede to foreigners in their own country.
The only enduring basis of diplomatic negotia-
tions is just mutual concession. There must b a
willingness to give as well as take. Before Japan
can expect to be taken seriously in its outcry against
'restrictions of Japanese land owners in Calif ornia or
elsewhere in thiscountry, she must extend to Amer-
icans the right to own land in Japan. She must
enter any negotiations with reference to the status
of her people in this cduntry, with clean hands,
otherwise her protests must be regarded as mere

A certain Mr. Cook volunteered to give his aid to
the chaperone of this colyum so I dragged him down

the small of his back in the most comfortable chair
with his feet on my desk and the most helpful re-

Jack Johnson, who recently arrived in these parts
from our neighboring country, Mex., North Amer.,
enjoys a distinction that few men in the eye of the
public can boast of. He was one of those that didn't
run for President.
Jack is happy, though; there's better food in Chi-
cago jails than in Mexican palaces. And more, too.
