Indd 24 2/18/2011 6:28:20 PM Federal Telegraph in 1920s China 25 States, Yan no doubt understood the political potency of the Open Door policy in America. Still, according to Yan, Federal’s contract and the Open Door were two separate issues. Simply put, China could not move forward with Federal until resolving the international protests. The Japanese and British were threatening to claim substantial monetary damages if their contracts were violated. Japan’s looming threat to recall its outstanding loans – a substantial sum by the early 1920s – added to Yan’s concerns.
