DOES CHINA WANT PI-.AOEP I
An EnRUuh Opinion on tho Orlfntnl
A grf.-it deal of nonsonjo nppfirs ,
in print just now with roforoneo to I
tho notion pursued )3' Japan iu tho
war in which sun is cngai'd with
Cliina. Wo aro (rpwing quite ntv
cutloniL'd to tho tailorings of a cur
tain si ctiott of (ho Uritisli pn-ss on
thin mbjocl, and wo doubt wbt'tliur
auj'horiy is M'riously infliieuri'il by
tlio oracular fahiou iu which they
lay down (ho law concoriiiuK ail
malU'M intornational. Tlio latet
nv of this oracular s'vlc of writ
ing calls for iiolico ami rebuko on
tho part of tho who claim to luii"
any inturost in Kustnru alL-iir?. It
appears that Jap.iu has nivon frosh
umbrago to thoo critics bucainosho
ha si on fit to decline (ho informal
and almost comical ouVrs of peace
which have been hold out by China.
Wo can quite uudorMand that thoso
good but mi'guided people who are
in tho habit of bringing a vory con
tracted vision to bear on intorna
tional questions, would accept peace
at any price, without troubling
Ihouewlves whether the terms ar
rived at by such menus could bo
honirahlo and lating. Thro is a
kind of peace which is infinitely
worse than war, and if wo under
stand tho Japanese aright they have
thoroughly grasped this truth and
intend to avoid being a party to
such miserable overtures. We can
not help thinking that the critics
who di'Voto so much time to passing
judgment on the action of Japan
are fretting themselves quite uu
ncco'sarily about what Japan will ,
do iu tho near future. Tho ponce-nt-any-prico
party would like one or
more of tho European Powers to
patch up tho matter for Japau and
arrange the whblo business for
China. We faucy we see tho Japa
nese kuuckliug down to this kind of
treatment! For tho present wo im
agine that Japan wants nothing so
much as to ho left nlono. The couu-1
try which lias orgauized the prosout
war with such a complete mastery1
of details as to be the subject of ,
general admiration on tho part of
all unbiassed authorities in Europe
is, wo imagine, quito capable of con-'
eluding an honorable aud satisfac
tory peace. If tho European Powers
are to tnke part iu closing the war ,
thoy will act iu concert with Japan,
and not as dictators.
During tho mouth a contribution
ha been made to tho literature on
this hubject which is well worthy
tho consideration of all who follow
tho war closely. Our readers will
no doubt remember the name of (
Colonel .Maurice, an oilicer held in '
great esteem by tho chiefs of (he
liritish Army aud by tho Intelli
gence Department. It is no exag
geration to say that his remarks on
tho progress of tho war from time
to lime have received more altentiou
from experts than any other which
have appeared in print. During last
month Uolouul Maurice delivered a
lecture boforo the Duke of Con
naught aud the Aldorshot Military
Society, iu which he paid a high tri
bute of praiso to the Japanese for
t Incomplete aud skilful maimer iu
which they had organised their
operations in China. He even went
so far as to comp-ire tho organisa
tion with that of Germany, and sug
gested that somewhoro or other in
Japau there must bo au orgauit-or
whom it is no derogation to Count
Von Moltke to compare even with
that groat general, who so planned
the invasion of Fiance that he never
lost a battle, or failed to carry out
any operation on which ho had set
his heart. Such high praise as this,
coming from ho distinguished a sol
dier as Colonel Maurice, will no
doubt be very gratifying to the
Japauoo, and will enable thorn to
treat the disparagement to which
they aro subjected by lessor lights
with indiUorence. They certainly
can afford to do so after tho high
testimony paid to their military or
ganization by oijo of tho leading ex
ports in this country. Wo ueod
scarcely add that Colonol Maurice is
being taken to task by a certain sec
tion of the press because ho has
snokon tho truth It is pointed out
that statements of this nature bear
ing tho imprimatur of such an ox
pert will toud to proloug tho war,
ami to render it more difficult to ob
tain peace from Japan. Cau any
thing bo moro ridiculous than such
a suggestion? What do thoso gontlo
men who write so glibly on Japau
and her motives think of tho pooplo
whoso future conduct thoy venture
to prophesy? It is really too absurd.
One might think from such state
ments that Japau was still iu leading-strings,
aud was looking to the
European Powers to say aye or nay
whonovor any now departure was to
be undertaken by tho' empire. When
Japan is properly approached by
China, wo have no doubt that peace
will bo arranged, aud this should bo
quito possible without tho interven
tion of Europoau Powers, The For
i vjn and Colonial Importer.
