American opposition to Japanese
mandatories in the Far East is not
conned to the Island of Yap but, as
ind'eated on February 21. 192i. in the
noie of former Secretary of tate
Colby to the League- of NationsT, to
all of the islands in the Pacific ocean
iiorth of the equator which fDrmerly
belonged to German.
These "gems
of the oriental seas", of which Yap
is one, aggregate 127 and are com comprised
prised comprised in four groups, namely the
Carolines with 62, the Marshall with
32, the Marianne (or Ladrone) with
25 and the Pelew with eight. ; They
form a kind of strategic semi-circle
around the Philippines.
While chief interest in the discus discussions
sions discussions of, the Allied Communications
Conferense, which began in Washing Washington
ton Washington on Octaber 8, 1920, to determine
the. allocation of these islands, has
centered in Yap by reason of its im im-.
. im-. portance as a cable station, the
problem of Yap is overshadowed by
the larger international aspect of the
control of all the 127 islands. The
contention of the United States de department
partment department of state has been that 'Yap
should be "internationalized". The
Allied Communications Conference,
attended by representative of the five
allied powers, becoming deadlocked
in February 1921, the questions were
referred to the Foreign Relations
Committee of the United States Sen Senate.
ate. Senate. Date of the conference has not
been announced.
Opposition to Japan's mandate over
Yap, expressed by Mr. Colby to the
president and members of the council U
of the League of Nations, included
declaration that Yap "constituted an
indispensable part of any scheme or
practical arrangement of cable com communication
munication communication in the Pacific and that
its free and unhampered use should
not be hampered or. conttollei by
any one power." Under the man mandatory,
datory, mandatory, agreed to by France and Eng England,
land, England, t "full power of administration
and legislation" over Yap was vested
in vht Tokio government and Yap was
to be considered "an integral part of
the Empire of Japan". Another ob objection
jection objection by the United States is that
it sees in the Yap situation the pos-
sibility..f a foreign nation exercis exercising
ing exercising a, censorship over-its communica communications
tions communications to Europe and Asia.
The fact that, the former German
operated cable from Shanghai, China,
which passes throught Yap was taken
over by Japan and its oriental term terminus
inus terminus to Tokio was another occasion
for the American protest. Control
over Yap by Japan as granted by
the Paris neace conference on May ?,
1919, k when it was decided that the
mandate for the Pacific islands north
of the equator formerly belonging
to Germany should be awarded to
the Tokio government and the man mandate

It is not generally known that the
Island of Yap was originally called
Guap or Wap, a cognomen given by
Spanish navigators, who discovered
it in the 16th century. Until 1885
Yap, like all the other of the Caro Carolines,
lines, Carolines, was owned by Spain. Germany
at this time cast covetous eyes upon
Yap, realizing that it was well situat situated
ed situated for communication with Japan,
China, the Philippines, the Dutch
East Indies and New Guinea and
that it was a convenient station on
the trans-Pacific route via Honolulu
to San Francisco.
Suiting action to desire the German
gunboat litis, in that year, raised the
Germang' flag on Yap and other,
islands. It created considerable ex excitement
citement excitement in Madrid and an appeal
t was made,, to the Vatican with the
result. that the Pope decided in favor
of Spanish sovereignty. Fourteen
years later, after the Spanish-American
war, Spain sold the Carolines, in including
cluding including Yap and the Pelew and all
of the Marianne (Lardone) islands
except Guam, to Germany for $4,200,-

WO. The United States had acquired
Gaum from Spain in 1898. It isle
n 360 miles from Yap. l
The importance of Yap and Guam! J

as cable bases is shown by the fact
that today an all-Ameriean cable runs
from San Francisco via Honolulu,
Guam and Manila to Shanghai, while
from Guam another cable, the South Southern

northern under Japanese goes direct
to Yokohoma. The former German

caoic runs uum uuaw i
one line goes on to "Shanghai, and an another
other another from Yap to Menado, in the
Dutch East Indies. The Yap-Guam
cable, it is said, was of great service
to Americans as it gave them an al alternative
ternative alternative to the Guam-Manila cable
for communication with China.
When the great war began, Japan Japanese
ese Japanese naval forces seized the Ladrone,
Pelew and Caroline islands, including
Yap, and,held them until Japan was
made their mandatory. Germany,
in accepting the. Treaty of Versailles,
renounced her cables in the far east
in favor of the allied and associated
powers and the final allocation of
them among the powers is the object
of the International Communications
Conference which is to be resumed in
Washington at an early date.
Aside from its tactical advantage
in the Pacific, the island which has
caused such an international diplo diplomatic
matic diplomatic stir, is not much, of a posses
sion. It has a population of 7,000 or
8,000 Malays. A volcanic pile which
many years ago poked its nose out of
the ocean's depths. Yap at intervals
since, has been visited by earthquakes
and other upheavals of nature. The
latest seismic disturbance f was in
December 1920 when, following a
storm of great intensity, severe
shocks were felt for three or four

It faced the monster whose foul blow blow-Would

For years Herbert Bainfleld had

had stood in his way, principally the
lack of money; but six months be before

and his sister a modest sum, and Her Herbert
bert Herbert had commenced to study art. He
bad taken lessons, then started off on
a sketchingtrip through the South,
for it was theu winter. On his return
he rented a studio, devoted himself to
his art, painting steadily for a wwk.
No one, not even his sister or The
Girl had been admitted. Now he was
giving a house warming, and behind
an embroidered silk curtain was' .the
result of his efforts.
"What's the subject of your pic picture?"

knew that real estate had formvrty

chimed In:
"Yes, a really and truly secret
Why, not even Helen has wormed It
out of him," and all the compauy
present realized that If Helen Smith
could not make him tell,' no one could,
for she was The Girl, a fact which
everyone, including Helen herself,
knew very well. As yet Herbert
had not had the courage to tell her so,
so he did not know whether' he was
The Man or not.
"Tell us. Put an end to the misery,"
suggested the young man who had
asked if Herbert could paint, and the
tea and sandwiches being all con consumed,
sumed, consumed, Herbert walked slowly across
the floor to the silk curtain. Pausing
an Instant, the young man viewed the
crowd. He saw Helen, of course, but
was delighted to notice Hammond.
He was art critic on the Courier, and
Herbert knew he needed the good will
of those who might not appreciate his
artistic efTorts. To tell the truth,
though, Hammond was there because
Mabel was. He would have sacrificed
himself much mor.e than this for her
"Ladles and gentlemen, and hon honored

just in time.

would say greet you here, I mean beat

with a paint rag, hastily caught up,
thereby decorating his face In a man manner

"Yes. you are welcome, I'm wel welcome,

drawing the curtain.
There was silence; then Helen
gave a sob. It was awful.
. Women can always be counted upon,
to rise to the occasion. The picture
was terrible, but Herbert was not, at
least to Helen. She knew, even if
he had not yet found out that he was
The Man for her, that he was, and
disregarding the rest, she slipped up
to him, and laying her hand on his
arm, said bravely:
"I think it is a wonderful picture,
Herbert. Tm awfully proud to know
the artist who painted IL"
"We all are," Hammond broke in,
feeling the pathos of the situation,
and especially Mabel's grief.
Herbert was not fooled, however..
Dropping the curtain he said broken brokenly:
ly: brokenly: "I see how it Is. I'm ahead. of my
time. People haven't learned yet to
see things as they really are," and
his party broke up hurriedly. How However,

"Honestly, do you like this picture,

did, but knowing Its awfulness, she
broke down, and between her sobs
managed toViy:
"No, I can't, but I do like you."
"This helped "right smart," as Her Herbert
bert Herbert hadjieard them say while he was
South, and with Helen's soft young
cheek pressed against his own, and
her hand in his, he promised to try
and forgive them all for not being
truly artistic, and that very day, with
Helen's kisses still warm on his lips,
he signed a contract with a patent
medlcln house to go on the road. As
he scrawled his name at the bottom, he
said sadly:
"I had hoped to put my name to dif different
