A New Era (op a New Japan.
BICYCLES AND SPORTING GOODS
The day that peace is made cer
tain betweeu Russia and Japan will
murk a .new era in the Mikado's em
pire, for that day will begin seriously
the work of upbuilding Japan. Manu
facturing and trade conquest are to
be uniicd in a campaign enlisting the
co-operation of every patriotic sub
ject. The Japanese of the immediate
future are to be manufacturers,
carrying the articles of their fabrica
tion to Asiatic markets in their own
vessels; and this they will do as effec
tively as they fought. Five years
hence the world wiil see in Japan a
country wherein the whirl of mach
inery will remind one of New England,
and the construction of ships suggest
the Clyde or Mersey. Japan's pro
gram is an elaborate one, but it will
succeed, for it is the creation of the
Mikado's Government. The last bor
rowing of $150,000,000 not required
for war purposes, obviously was
probably the commencement of
operations in the campaign that is to
convert Japan into a vast workshop.
There are two countries which the
Japanese look upon with admiration
and envy, the United States and
England; and for thirty years they
have been assiduously studying the
commercial methods of both. Pain
fully aware of the narrowness of Na
lures gifts in their own land, the
Japs turn now to England as a na
tion to be patterned from. They
know that England long ago forsook
ugriculture for manufacturing, and
that, the great industrial communities
have been built up at the expense of
the farms. The Japanese are aware
that the energies of the country,
years ago devoted to agriculture, are
now given over to the iron aud ship
building and textile industries; and
that the Englith people find it more
profitable to run a workshop for the
univeise and buy their food from
abroad with the product of their
manufacturing. Herein is the text
of the New Japan. Any visitor to the
Japanese cupital may divine it; and,
if mingling with men ot finance and
shipping, he would know it. The
anticipation of events is admittedly a
trait or the Japanese character; and
a few months hence America and
Europo may marvel at Japan's pre
paration for a commercial propogan-
da, as they did at her preparedness
for war. The Japanese have an acute
sene or fact, let it be borne in mind,
and do nothing from impulse.
It is no more than fair to Japanese
astuteness to assume that the pro
gram of Japan's intentions is familiar
to every representative of the Mika
do s Government in commercial
burope and America. The Japanese
Minister at London. Viscount llvashi.
talked very close to something in his
mind when saving to an int. rviewer
that "Japan's greater proximity to
enma proper and to Manchuria will
enable her to secure trade on excep
tionally favorable terms; and the
Japanese surely are not to be blamed
if they happen to be geographically
well placed for trading in their im
And at a public dinner in New
York, Consul-General Uchlda gave
evidence of familiarity with the pro
gram when he said: "We are going
to adopt American methods of
making money; we like to use
American machinery, and we find
your cotton the best in the world.
VVe expect a great industrial and
commercial boom as 6oon as the war
is over. We will then have to make
up the expenses of the war in indus
tries, and for that purpose we must
import American mechineryand raw
The words of the diplomatists in
London join perfectly with those of
the consular official in America.
They sum up Japan's policy in a line.
She is to 'commercialize China and
Manchuria with an endless variety of
goods manufactured from American
raw materials by American machi
nery. No program could be simpler.
One of Japan's greatest statesmen,
a member of several ministries, hesi
tates not to say that it offers the
shortest possible cut to prosperity.
"Remember, he insist, "that we are
justified in emulating the United
States, for is not Japan ber god
In a very few years Japan ma be
spinning a third of the cotton worn
by the millions Asia this is the am
bition, at least, of powerful Japanese
capitalists. And the idea is by no
means chimerical, when it is known
that Japan ceased three or four
year's since to purchase cotton save
in a raw state. America had for
merly a good customer in Japan for
cotton fabrics. Now she buys the
cotton from us by the bale, spins
and weaves for her own use, and
sends to China and Korea cloth aud
cotton yarns to an enormous extent.
The value of the cotton yarn spun
last year in Japan was 147, 000,000,
and next year it mar be nearly
twice us much.
There is so much logic in selecting
cotton spinning for a great Japanese
industry that one is led to speculate
as to the permanence of the business
in England. Japanese labor is as
good as British, aud cheaper, and
Japan has the markets of 'Asia al
most at her door. Easily can site
secure the trade of China, and in
time she may invade India itself with
her "Manchester goods." If so, it
will be uufortunate for Manchester,
for the Japs will enjoy certain advan
tages over British spinners. The
escaping of Suez Canal charges might
be sufficient to give Japan a consider
able control of the Indian market
Japan desires an industry that may
become national in its ramifications.
Natural and economic conditions are
making this the cotton industry.
A fruit of Japan's victory is the
silencing of Kussian disproval of her
aspirations in Korea, and she is left

So dominant is Japan's sway at
Seoul that Korea might be the

Japanese officers direct military

look after the foreign interests of
her neighbor gratuitously.
