Speaking of Mr. Guthrie work as
a diplomat, rMr: Peters said, la part:
-George W. Guthrie the late ambas
eador to his Imperial majesty'a rgor
eminent at Tokio, was : a maa pecu
liarly fitted vbyi his ancestral 'inheri
tance; by his fine general and, special
training, and by a spkndid .experience
in municipal affairs. ; Before neing
chosen to hi3 highambassadorial of
tir he hfid already, achieved distinc
tion as a clear-sighted statesman who
could see Into the very heart or an
issue, strip It of its nonessentials, and
present In 'cogent , form its, essential
f a'cts. This , was a ;very necessary
faculty In the ohe who was to be cho
sen to. represent ; the United; Sties,
her spirit, her alms, her general atti
tude, to the Japanese government; He
was chosen at a critical time. Grave
misunderstandings ;i were arising.
These , misunderstaniiags were ? voic
inj; themselves not Infrequently, ' la
harsh terms. 5 That I these misunder
standinrs were allayed so readily and
the harshness v disappeared so com
rlciely can'ba accounted for, if not en
tirely, at lea st very largely , by tne
srlcclid'.wcric-; don J by, Arbassador
Guthrie, la portraying the spirit of the
American government-..to the'govern
