NOTES OF TRAVEL.
Mr. Langley Writos an Interesting
Lottor from China.
Mr. Langley, fornnrly of the Cus
torn House iu Honolulu, linn favored
tho oditor of th Bullbti.v with a
note antionncing hia arrival at
llangkoug and with lato papers of
that place, llo has written a long
letter to Mr. Ball, yacht and boat
builder, which has some interesting
information. Sotno extracts there
from will bo given here. The Ftentn
or Naiiehau, by which ho loft Hono
lulu, was cold to tho Japanese and
tho passengers for Hongkong had to
wait a week at Kobe for another
steamer. Of Hongkong Mr. Lang
"I must admit it is a wonderful
place. If America will do for Ha
waii what tho Britich havo douo for
Hongkong, thou by all means let us
havo annexation right oh". Talk as
much about tho Chinese as you like
and still, with all tho information
one got?, 1 cuu oulytell you that
you simply know nothing about this
rnco 01 people until you fee mm
1 where ho belongs. Imagine skill
! (Hug cautious 1800 feet tip and not
that alone, but the material to
(build the tn.iuy forts that command
I tho aea anil city. Thou thero is get
1 ting up ammunition, food aud sliel
1 tor for 1000 meu scattered all over
I these ditTereut forts. At tho peak,
I which is, as 1 havo said, 1800 feet
I above sea level, thero are two well
appointed hotels, both twico as
i largo as tho Hawaiian and reached
' by a cable road. There are also sig
1 tial stations, from which n vessel can
bo seen -10 miles on" iu clear weathor.
J "Thero are roads leading all over
1 this peak and down to tho other side
, of tho island, as you kuow Hong
kong is an island, aud such roads 1
I Allmaeadain and cement gutter way a.
Chinese do all tho building brick
aud grauito blacksmithing, engi
neering aud, iu fact, everything. If
you waut to go any distance you get
into a 'ricksha aud tho coolie will
pull you where you waut to go, at
tho ordinary rate of Honolulu car
riages. There aro very few horses
here, aud all are owned by tho
rich pooplo. You are not iu it with
tho Chinese as far as boat-building
is concerned. Of course they can
not turn out as good a job as you
I cau, but they seem to satisfy tho
"I have been to Canton. It is a
! largo Chineso city with about two
! aud a half millions, but very dirty
I aud streets very narrow well, iiot
1 so wide as our sidewalk on Fort
I street. Iwent by steamer from there
to Nankin aud if you see one you
1 see thorn all. I got as far north as
Che-Foo. which is directly south of
Port Arthur, separated by tho straits
I of Fechili. Here I had to call a
halt ou accouut of the extromo cold.
I I heard all I could obout tho war,
and if they tackle Pekiu they will
got tho warmest reception they ever
got. I was afraid of some unforo-
soon accideut occurring to me, so I
, thought I had got far enough, or
1 rather near enough tho seat of war
j on my own accouut. If I had been
' in tho omploy of tho Chinese Gov
1 ernmout I would not havo stopped
until I reached tho capital, but it
1 was simply impossible. The gulf of
Pochili is all frozen, and to go over
laud, up to the waist in suow. would
not bo at all comfortable with the
thermometer 15 degrees below freez
1 ing point.
"The Japs aro dying byho huu
drods from cold and exposuro. Their
cavalry aro also dying. During my
short trip along tho Chiua coast,
from what I saw, I havo come to tho
conclusion that the Japs can never
best the Chineso. Suppose thoy
take Pekiu, what of it? The present
Emperor and his dynasty will fall
and tho Japs will keep on going
westward. Japan will got beyond
her depth, aud all thoso vast pro
vinces lying west, which oven do not
kuow that war is L'oiiiL' on with
! ileirtl.e'.omt'ie0 ja?" ui7! ft To
fall of Pekiu aud tho death of the
Japan, will turn loose aud thou God
binporor n civil war takes nlaee.
ovon then the Japs would bo in a
hole, for at tho Drosunt auv ono of
tho provincos can prolong a war aud
! beat tho Japs iu tho end. Once
Japan moves from tho coast into
1 tho interior sho is done for. Hor
1 base of supplies is interrupted aud
thon sho is helpless.
I "You can read tho papers aud hear
j things about the war iu tho tar East,
but you cau just put. all down as
half rot. When 1 landed at Nankin,
which is altogether Chinese, they
did not know what to make of mo or
mo of thwu. They felt my hands
nud clothes as if I was something
ituuatural. It was very amusing to
them, but a good deal to my dis
comfort. However, I made my stay
as short as possible and hastened to
Cho-Foo, then back to Hongkong
via Shanghai, very much impressed
with the manners and customs of
Chin-Chin, or tho Chinaman at
homo. Tho customs of the country
diner very much from the Hawaiian
or American. Take manual tabor
tho coolie dons it all. Skilled labor
they aro almost master of all tho
skilled labor you could mention.
They can make anything from a
ueedlo to an anchor in all tho
branches of trade. They aro even
paying tellers iu all tho leading
banks. They can make aud work as
fine a gravestone iu marble or gra
uito as ever seen.
"Take the meal hours breakfast,
0 a. m.; lunch, 1 p. ri.j dinner, 7 to
8 p. in., and all places of amusement
open at 9 n. 111. No business man
gets into his otlice before 10:.'!0 a. 111.
Some of tho Chineso inventions aro
rare. Take, for instance, tho Canton
stormvheol boat. I was simply
amazed whou 1 saw it coming up
the river agaiuht a strong tide.
Coolies work this stem wheel by
stepping ou a treadwheel. It is sur
prising to see them haudlo these
boats. Thero is, 1 was told aud
there must be, 1200 steam launches
in the hirbor of Hongkong."
