GEORGE BOARDMAN'S TRIP!

Tnllmnrilin Recent DlMilm, the Sen
.Tllnlttry niul it nrn'Jnimnron
Mr. Coorgo Bonrduiun, who hua
recently leturued from u trip lo
Japan in the iutorest of nn immi
gration company, cohseuted lo tell
a Bulletin roporler for publica
tion a few of tho ninny things of
interest ho obsorved while in
"Politically," said Mr. Board
man, "the overthrow of tho Ito
Ministry was tho most important
oveut during my stay in Japan.
Tho direct cause of this was tho
general dissatisfaction of tho poo
pie with tho management of pub
lie nffaiis Biuuu the close of tho
war, tho people claiming that tho
weak and vacillating foreign
policy adopted by tho late Min
istry had resulted iu throwing all
tho fruits of victory into tho
hands of Hubbiu. With regard to
Formosa also, the common peo
ple cannot understand why it is
that tho armies which subdued
China should not bo nblo to re
duce the Formosans to subjection.
Thoro woro many other causes of
dissatisfaction, especially tho
Coroan troubles, which, combined
with tht above, led to tho resigna
tion of tho outiro Cabinet. Tho
now Minis-try has bpon selected
from what is tunned the war pirty,
but their policy has not yet been
developed, except in tho case of
Formosa, whore vigorous mea
sures to restore order woro being
undei taken. The morning I left
I saw 2l)0l frosh hoops on their
way to Formosa. "While Japan
gavo China a good whipping it
looks as if in tho end China would
gain tho greater benefit of tho war.
"Times are very go id iu Japan,
tho Government is spending more
money thau ever on its army and
navy, banks aro springing up
everywhere and now and import
ant industries nro being constant
ly projected. Manufactories of
nil kinds, backed by tho banks,
aro being established and fine
brick building nre going up in
all the big cities.
"I was about three months in
Japan." continued Mr. Boardman,
"having left Honolulu on July
12th. 1 1 cached Yokohama a day
or two after tho great tidal wave
and floods. Of those appalling
disasters the half has not been
told. Tho railroad from Yokoha
ma to Kobe was washed out to,
such an extent that it took six
weeks to got it in a safe condition
for travel again. It was not tho
tidal wavo that did the most
damage. It wob the floods caused
by heavy rains in the mountains.
All travel from Yokohama to
Kobe had to bo dono by Bea,
aud on tho way thoro the ocean
was full of logs and troes which
had been washed down from tho
mountains. From Kobe to Kioto
is seventy miles, comprising ono
of tho finest and most populous
districts in Japan. When I was in
1 Koho this was ouo vast lako.
"Whole villngcs had beon Hwept
i away and it was water, water
I every whore. This was two weeks
' after tho flood and it was six weeks
boforo tho people could got around
again without having rocourso to
sampans. In Osaka the water
came up to tho second
Btory of tho buildings, aud
at tho principal hotel in tho city
tlio main staircaso was still Gaug
ing twenty foet in the air whoro
tho flood had loft it. On tho
principal street which slopes to
ono Bide bags fillod with sand
were piled up nlong tho lower
Bide to keep tho wator from run
ning into the stores, and this was
a week after tho flood. At Kobo
tho rivor broko through its banks
and flooded tho surrounding
country. All tho masonry of tho
railroad bridges was washed out,
the water getting in behind
and undermining it. Tho mil-
road station was flooded but stood
Tho rails and sleepers on the
track woro loft hanging for miles,
tho wator passing underneath.
Tho damage in the flooded dis
tricta is incalculable, for hero woro
tho most feitile fields in tho coun
try, which produce nearly nil the
lieo from which sako is made.
All (ho best Japanoso rice is used
in the manufacture of sake, tho
pooplu eating tho rico from Coroa.
"X visited at Kobo and Osaka
l. out U'U days and wont back to
Yokohama by train. The railroad
was only partially repaired and at
timos tho passengers hud to get
out and walk in single file over
bridge and take a train on the
other aide. Fifteen miles of the
journey had to bo made in jinrick
shas, and although it was tedious
still tho deviation from the rail
roadgavo mo a view of iutorior
life in Japan I should not other
wise hnvo obtained. In this trip
of 15 miles I passed through pop
ulous villages every mile or so,
fillod with industrious and appar
ently happy uud contented peo
pie. Schoolhousos wore to bo
seen everywhere and any amount
"I made frequent trips to Tokio,
where I was always hospitably
entertained by ox-Consul Fujii
and his former secretary Goro
Naritn. Both of theso gen
tlemen nro on tho road to
wealth and fntno and nro high up
in the government service.
"No, I did not see the Emperor.
Tho fact is ho did not nsk mo to
call. It is tho same now as it al
ways has boon in Jnpan, tho Em
peror's person is sacred and only
tho very highest foreign diplo
mats ever get to see him. Lots of
peoplo returning from Japan say
they have scon tho Emperor but it
is not so. Ho is as macccssiblo
as ovor to common people, and
moro so now than during tho
"Ouo tiling I must givo tho
Jnpnu8G crodit for and that is
tho superb manner in which their
Coast lino in guarded with light
houses, not little five and ten
candle arrangoments but modorn
rovolviug lights of tho highest
ejeotrio powei. Every littlo pro
montory oil tho Coast has its
lighthouse, and Hawaii might
well pattern after Japan in this
' You ask if my trip was suc
cessful in a business Bouse y "Woll,
yos, on the wholo. 1 succeeded
in the object I had in view aud
my company is now prepared to
furnish all tho laborers wo can
obtain orders for. I loft Honolulu
with orders for 1150, but for rea
sons best known to themselves the
Hawaiian Government counter
manded and cut the order down to
one-half the number. Thoy also
have required ' mo to furnish
them in tho proportion of
two Chinese to one Japanese.
Of those I contracted for part
have already been delivered aud
tho balance aro to como in Janu
ary and February. I did not go
to China us it was unnecessary.
I mot a Chinese in Osaka with
whom I made arrangoments bo
satisfactory that a visit to China
was not required. Tho man is

Of course, thoy will havo to bo

" 1 am unable to answer your
question aB to what the feeling is
in Japan on tho recent action of
tho Hawaiian Govern moiit in
limiting tho numbor of Japanese
immigrants to ono-half that of the
Chinese, that is, I don't know
what tho fooling is in official cir
cles. All tho ollicials with whom
I came in contact were very guard
ed in thoir talk on the subject
and, doubtless, acted under ord
orB. Uuollicinlly I talked with
many Japanese about it, and their
opinion seomod to bo unanimous
that it waB a national Blight, but
too potty to bo worth attention.
As ono gentleman otnrtBsed it:
1 "Wo helped the Hawaiian plnnt-oi-H
out when thoy woro in
difficulties, and now thoy aro
, independent of us thoy show a
I prefnronco for ChincRO. Well,
wo don't enro but wo shnll not for
i got tho Blight.' Tho Japanese
I Parliament has rocontly passed a
now law affecting tho emigration
' of its Biibjectp.Under ittho Cabinet
ib given direct nnd absolute con
trol of tho emigration question.
It can do what it likes nt n mo
ment's notico without consulting
tho logislativo body. Should tho
now Cabinet take up tho matter of
tho prcsont preforenco of Hawaii
for Chinese to tho slighting of
Japanese, its action may bo sud
den and unexpected. But I do
not anticipate any troublo, tho
Japanese Cabinet has other and
much moro important business on
