A Jewish young man of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, is playing one of the principal roles in the movement which has its headquarters in Hongkong, China, to restore Dr. Sun Yat Sen, ousted executive of south China to his former position, according to a cable of Junius B. Wood, correspondent of the New York Globe and Ghicago News.

The Canadian Jew is Morris A. Cohen. He is described as of handsome appearance and of unmistakable Jewish features. Cohen is one of the inner circle advisers of Dr. Sun, known as the Kwok Ming-Tang society. He is one of the few non-Chinese in that powerful group. Termed “the man of mystery” he is said to be willing to discuss any topic except why he is interested in the politics of China.
