THE REGENT REVERSAL IN
The wonderful changes in Japan
since 18G8 have been interpreted as
indicating the entire subversal of
the Asiatic style of political and
social usages. The appointment of
Ministers of State responsible to the
Mikado, and his oath to provide a
new form of government, based on
the welfare of tlie people, were in
the direction of this line of upheaval.
But the proclamation of the imperial
rescript of Dee. 25, 1887, is like a
stroke of lightning out of a clear sky.
It would seem as if the liberals of
18C8 had become ultra-conbervatives
in 1887. A parliament, to assemble
in 1890, with a cabinet responsible
through it to the suffiages of the
people was promised anew in
1881. But apparently the sweets
of ofllce have intoxicated the
men, who clambered into official
positions under cover of a clamor
for popular rights. We have heard
of late that American ideas wero
not popular in Japan. It was
thought by Japanese olllcials, as by
Hawaiian ofllcials here, that too
great liberties would bo taken by
the people if they should become
the virtual rulers in tho Govern
ment. A reaction has set in. Bis
mark and his iron rule has become
objects of admiration to the Japa
nese ofllcials, just us the Sultan and
Turkish absolutism seemed to Kala
knua Rex, tho most admirable model
for his Hawaiian Kingdom, With
this idea, instead of the large btuns
of money at lirst devoted to pur
poses of education and internal im
provements, millions have been
spent on military and navol arma
ments. Even the railroads built
have been pushed forward with n
view to mobilizing the military
forces. The newspaper press was
muzzled. By the decree mentioned
above, suspicious characters have
been banished from the capital. The
present ministry seem to bo masters
of the situation. The prospects of
constitutional government in Japan
seem clouded now by this recur
rence lo tlie measures and methods
of Oriental nbolulisni. But tho
reverses that havr thus conic upon
the frlontls of constitutional govern
ment in Japan must bo only tempo
rary. While the llowaiinn move
ment of June 30 .was in the direc
tion of popular sovereignty and
national progiess, the reversal of
Dec. 25 in Japan scorns to be a tem
porary set-back in the direction of
absolutism and Civsnrism in govern
CONTEMPT OF COURT.
While declining to take second
place to anyone in respect and vener
ation for the Supreme Judiciary, or
in ready willingness to accept and
abide by its i tilings and decisions,
wo cannot help thinking that it has
been a little extreme in its construc
tion of "Contempt of Court."
As our readers well know, tho
Supreme Court decided sometime
ago that the publication of proceed
ings in a certain sub jiuUce cabc
was "Contempt of Court;" and the
press has been warned that by pub
lishing proceedings in any case un
der trial, prior to its close and the
finding of a verdict, it renders itself
liable to the charge of "contempt."
This finding, we believe, is scarcely
in harmony with tho present spirit
and piacticc of American, British,
ond Colonial courts.
We can understand that in certain
exceptional cases there may be good
and sulllcicnt reasons for delaying
publication, or altogether withhold
ing from publication. Such cases
arc usually conducted with closed
doors in other countries and should
he in this country. But to us il
seems an anomaly that any testi
mony which is considered proper to
elicit in open court, and in presence
of as many of the public as care to
look on and listen, should be con
sidered improper to record in public
print, on the ground of liability to
prejudice the case. If a truthful
publication of the tcstimoiry pre
judices the case, so does the pub
lic hearing; and if the publication
is constructive contempt of court,
so is the public talk of the same
St. Johns, March 8. On Tuesday
Governor Blake received the follow
ing tclegiam from Lord Lans
It is considered by my C4ovcrn
ment that, if your Government ap
proves, the time would be convenient
for a discussion of the admission of
Newfoundland to the Federal Union,
and that no dilliculty would be likely
to arise in arranging the terms.
Under these circumstances, could
you send a deputation to Ottawa
with power to negotiate? In our
opinion, the deputation should re
present the Opposition as well as
the Ministerial party, and as the
Canadian Parliament's session has
begun and may be short, we would
suggest the expediency of the depu
tation sailing by the steamer of the
loth inst. Lansdownk.
Governor Blake replied yester
day as follows :
