-> ''“’A’ real sinister Asiatic mastermind? There were ''dozens'' of them! All over the place! In Asia, California, New York, South America, Africa, Europe, Britain - everywhere where there was a Chinese community of any sort, you had one of those guys trying to stir things up! Some of them were agents of the [[AncientConspiracy Red Monks]], some of them were agents of the White Monks, some of them were agents of... ''something else''... but most of them were just really pissed off Chinese who were still honked about losing the Opium Wars. Oh, and the way that both the Brits and the Americans had been treating the Chinese ever since. How DARE those roundeyed devils treat the children of the Middle Kingdom the way that the Han treated everyone else!”''

->''"Imagine a person, tall, lean, and feline, high-shouldered, with a brow like Shakespeare and a face like Satan, a close-shaven skull, and long, magnetic eyes of the true cat-green. Invest him with all the cruel cunning of an entire Eastern race, accumulated in one giant intellect, with all the resources, if you will, of a wealthy government—which, however, already has denied all knowledge of his existence. Imagine that awful being, and you have a mental picture of Dr. FuManchu, the yellow peril incarnate in one man."''

And these are said to be the very offscouring of the Chinese ports. If then such results come to us from contact with 130,000 of their lowest grade of intellect, what shall be the measure of their success when free intercourse, open ports, and the attractions of foreign commerce pour upon our shores the numbers they can spare from their 400,000,000 of population?--when their leading men, with subtle intellects, come in conflict with our plodding minds?--who shall dare say which is the superior race until the conflict is over? Every contest between ourselves and the Chinese hitherto has been to them a victory."''
