Wong opined on the Sino-Japanese War, and strongly entertained the notion that China would win. He dismissed the prediction that Japan would triumph on the grounds that it was not a strong Oriental nation and has succumbed to Western influence. Wong advocated the overthrow of the Manchu government, and there was strong evidence that he corresponded with Dr. Sun Yat-sen, who strived to put an end to constitutional monarchy in China. Later, Wong announced plans for the establishment of a revolutionary junta in Chicago with the intension of overthrowing the Manchu government and rule China following their downfall.
