WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1, 1885.
LI HUNG CHANG.
a slw and rr.ctfuAK vir.w or the
ni:AT cursusn statesman.
The Jlochi Shimbun, a Japanese
vernacular journal, says:
Among foreigners and Japanese
all point to Li Hung Chang as the
gteat personage in China. Some
ovon put hira on a parallel with
Prince Bismarck, anil 1, also, before
coining to China, thought him to be
the fiist man in the country anil ono
wlioscnutuo was held sncicd by his
countrymen, but, contrary to my
expectation, there aic many men in
the Chinese Government who aic
mote honored and rcveicnccd by the
Chinese than Li. .Moi cover, the
Chinese never even in their dreams
think of him as foicigncrs do. Tso-tsung-tang
is one among many who
is mote honored by his countrymen
than Li. Most of the Viccioys aic
equal in influence with Li, and some
of them aic moio highly esteemed
than he. Looking at Li .fiom
another point than being one who is
greatly honoicil, viz., at his official
rank, he is not l'limc Minisler, or
Vice-Minister of Stale, he only hblds
the lank of Dnigakuski (gteat. stu
dent) of the Cabinet, and practically
he only administcis the Government
of tho province of Chile as its Vice
toy, and his power as such is no
greater than that of any other Vice
toy. As a Daigakushi ho htfs four
who are bis equals, and as Vicctoy
there" ate eighteen his equals, and
above him there is a Minister whose
orders ho must obey. The ofllcc of
Li .Hung Chang is not the same as a
Prime Minister of the "Wcstei n na
tions. If we investigate into tho
reason why he is so renowned among
Western nations, and by Japan,
whilst he has many equals in his
oflloial rank, and at the same time
not considered by his countrymen so
great a personage, we shall ascct
tain it is ftom no gteat depth of
learning. Forcigncts honor him for
a secret purpose, and Japanese,
of this, follow in their
1IATISF.D OF rOREIOXKKS.
The obstinacy of the Ministcis of
tho Chinese Government is very
great, and words cannot express it.
Even to this day thej' tegard all for
eigners as ''barbarous people," and
are ashamed to have any intercourse
with them, and even the Minister of
Foreign Affaira will not meet Minis
ters of foreign countries. Unless
upon most important business, their
inlereourss almost stops at thoir
own officials. When Westerns call
on the Chinese Minister of loicign
Affairs, not knowing that they will
be treated so contemptuously, he
declines to sec them, and orders aro
given to the doorkeeper to send them
out of the house, and on their de
parture salt is sprinkled on the door
way. JJow, if such is the conduct
of the Minister of Foreign Affairs,
it can be conjectured wuat tho others
would bo. The above is the way
foreigners aredtcated by tho Chi
nese olHcials, but, as most of the
foreigners aic met chants, their ob
ject is to obtain money from the
hands of the Chinese Government,
they do all they possibly can to be
come intimate with the ministers,
but, as above staled, it is in vain.
Li Ilung-Chung, however, after lie
obtained distinction by the aid of
foreigners during the recentj rebelli
on, lias inleicoursc with foreigners.
There is the point. Forcigncts
desirous of getting money from the
Chinese Government through him,
bribe him and Hatter him and call
him the gicatcst man in China, they
magnify his impoitance, giving it
Look at all this with calm eyes it
becomes sickening. It is well enough
for foreign merchants to do all this
in older to, by all manner of moans,
, ..obtain money, hut it is lidiculous
.for the Japanese, who hear all this
flattery, that they should imitate the
Westet ir people, and pay great rev
erence to Li. What object cau
Japan have to praise Li ho much,
regarding him as tho greatest man
in the East, and thrust aside other
gieat men, his countrymen? Li
Hung Chang has experienced many
changes and has seen much unfold
ing of events, and as such must not
be regarded as an ordinary indivi
dual, hut if wo consider the point of
his gcncial ability it will be in
" fraudulency." In the time of tho
icbellion, he was told by General
Gotdon that lie would cause the
submission of all tiic rebels if he
(Li) would promise not to kill thoin.
Li assured him he would not, but
Gordon, doubting him, asked him
two or three times, nnd each time
was promised that he would not
sacrifice their lives. Gordon there
upon cnteted their forticss, and, by
the confidence licinspitcd for their
safety, obtained their surrender and
took the leadcis to his camp. After
this, and unknown to Gordon, Li
had them killed, which enraged
Gordon, who declined any fmthcr
intercotusc with him. All this is a
matter of fact, nnd clearly demon
strates L,i's disposition, Li has
obtained the honor of being the first
personage in the East, but it is a

Two very important rules governing the

driver fiom the company who wilfully
charges more than the legitimate rates
of fare; Rule No. 2 compels any of our
