The por.  traits of Sir Hector and Kuroki  have been compared, and show a str  iking resemblance, while the admission of the Japanew that ICuroki  is of foreign blood, the fact that he  iwns declared by an American journalist to be a Dutchman, all point  to   the same conclusion.

Asked as to whether there was nnjn

said he did not ihink so, Wilgress
seemed afraid to tackle the JJana-

they   could not be beaten.
