The iropnrntioiiR whieli aro hoing
madu for tlit eolobratioii of tlio
fourth eoiitiMinial anniversary of the
discovery of America are moving
.students of history to investigate the
respective claims of the several (lis
coverers. Mr. ,7ohn "Boyd Thacher,
Commissioner from New York to the
World's Fair, is concerned lest in
honoring Columbus Americans
would neglect to pa)' proper tribute
to him after whom their continent
Wiis named Amerigo Vespucci.
Between Columbus and Vespucci
a period of live years elapsed. The
former sailed on August l, M!)2 (O.
S.) and landed on AYatlings Island
or Cat Island on October 12 (O. S.)
He returned home in the following
year, binding in Spainjm March In,
MSI.'J. Vespucci sailed four years, af
terward on May 10, ll'.)7, landed on
fhe coast of Honduras in that uin
nior, skirted the coast of the conli
nonl as far north as H;impton Hoads
and made landings at intervals. In
the same year, 1 11)7, Sebastian Cabot,
an Englishman, sailed from Bristol
on May 2 on a voyage of discovery
and returned to that-port on August
0, having set foot on Labrador and
probably on Nova Scotia. A I tho
ver3 time that Vespucci was coasting
along the shores of the Carolinas
and Virginia Cabot was lauding on
tho coast of what is now Canada and
Columbus was in Spain preparing
for his third voyage to the West
Indies. Tho real discovery of North
America thus occurred in 111)7, not
Ml)2, Columbus never having set foot
on the continent, and the name
America is not, as so many historians
have averred, a misnomer.
Whether it was made by Vespucci
or by Cabot was at one time a mat
ter of controversy in which Hum
boldt did not disdain to take part.
The partisans of the Italian averred
thai he landed on the main land
eighteen days before Cabot. On the
ether hand the friends of the Eng
lishman deny that Vespucci ever
lauded at all. Humboldl took this
latter view and showed by docu
ments that if Vespucci did accom
pany tho voyagers of 1197 ho did so
as astronomer and not its captain.
Tho evidence on both sides was sum
med up by Justin Winsor in a vol
umo published in ISSti. Thoc who
aro curious on the subject will find
therein all that will be known on
In the last decade of tho fifteenth
century the mania for voyages of
discovery was general among navi
gators, but was. not warmly encour
aged by sovereigns. Cabot received
from tho King of England X10 in
full remuneration for his discoveries;
the miserable fate of Columbus is
well known to every one. Vespucci
was the most fortunate of the three.
Whether he was or was not tho first
discoverer of North America, he cer
tainly made man' voyages and many
discoveries, for which ho was re
warded with tho office of Pilot o
Major, and permitted to spend his
declining years in ease at Seville. It
never entered into the dull minds of
the European monarchs that these
bold mariuui'is were rendering to
civilization a service compared with
which the exploits of generals and
admirals wore trifling.
It is but proper, as Mr. Thacher
suggests, that in celebrating the dis
covery Amerigo Vespucci should bo
remembered as well as Columbus,
Nor should Cabot be forgotten.
Him geographers have ignored in
naming now places. Only a couple
of post -villages, anil a cape on Lake
Huron commemorate the name of
him who fitnt surveyed 1800 miles of
the coast of the continent.
These intrepid s-ailors were pro
bably not the first strangers who set
foot in the land we live in. The
evidence of the lauding of the vik
ings, though mainly circumstantial
and not fortified by contemporary
proofs in writing, is still iutriuMcally
plausible. It is more likely that tho
uorlhmeu did laud than that they
did not. So the records of voyages
by Japanese and Chinese to the west
coast of the continent, though un
satisfactory to the critical mind,
have a semblance of truth. It is
quite probable that daring oriental
sailors did cross the ocean and effect
landings on the shore of California
or Oregon. The traces of Japauee
intorcourho, in prehistoric times,
with Central America and Peru, are
striking. We cannot celebrate ima
ginary voyages nor commemorate
legendary heroes. That is no ream,
however, why wo should neglect the
memory of navigators who were un
questionably historical personages,
