PtCIrIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER COMPANY.
Bjr the an-iral of the City of New York,
wf are in receipt of joarn&lft and correspondence,
giving highly interesting account of the visit of
Hi Majesty to Japan. We hasten to present a
portion of this news in thin extra Pacxtic Com
xkkciax. Adtzbtiseb which we forward to all
Whilst naturally feeling gratified at the
distinguished reception accorded to King
Kalakaua in Japan a reception which,
notwithstanding his desire to travel
incognito, he could not refuse we cannot
but express regret that His Majesty did
not leave here fully provided by a special
vote of his Legislature, to travel with the
state that belongs to his rank. When we
reflect on the attention hown by the
Imperial Government of Japan to our King,
we cannot but recal the fact that Hawaii
occupies in effect a prouder position ia the
commonwealth of nations than does that
country itself. Hawaii enjoys a perfect
autonomy which, in consequence of former
ef!irU to repress the intrusion of foreigners,
neither Japan or the great empire of China
ran claim, whilst within their territories
the Consular Courts of foreign nations are
allowed to exercise a jurisdiction -which
they derive directly from the governments
of their own countries. No doubt the
example of this Kingdom will be availed of
by the Mikado and his ministers in their
eff rts to get rid of a system which must be
i thorn in the side of so ancient and so
important a monarchy. This feeling doubt
es had something to do with the specially
ourteous and distinguished reception
hich our King has received in Japan.
We notice in papers, published in the
Fjigli.-h language in Japan, remarks about
j he extent of undeveloped territory there
ind ilU-ouraging to the emigration of
ajiauese to other countries. We are glad
wever, to know that the visit of King
alakaua hx inspired the Emperor and
.U fJovernment to listen favorably to
propositions for the emigration of Japanese
u.jffts to these islands. They desire to
ncoune the commerce of their country as

. Arrival at Yokohama.
As the Oceanic steamed into Yokohama
harbor very early on the morning of the
4th March, the eager look-out from the
decks of the steamer could count forty-two
men-of-war and large steamers at anchor
in the bay. The Hawaiian flag had been
run up to the main and had floated in
the morning breeze but a 'ow moments,
when a brilliant display of bunting arched
each giant ship-of-war and steamer, from
water's edge, to main truck, and from main
truck to water's edge, with the flacr of
Hawaii flying at the main of every one,
At the same time the shrill boatswains
whistles piped Ifvely over the waters, as
the nimble tars coursed up rigging and,
swarming out on the yards of their several
ships, manned them in splendid style, and
hurrahed, not three times three, but whilst
our steamer was passing in review, and
ships and shore joined with guns in a royal
roar of welcome. "
Hardly had the Oceanic anchored, when
hundreds of sampans, or native canoes, and
small craft of all kinds, came, thronging
around the broid sides of the great steamer,
and the people on board this mosquito fleet
were making a clamor that drowned the
1 ffJ a a .
snrieKs oi me steamer's waistie, wnen a
shot was heard, a puff of smoke was ob
served to float away from a distant battery,
a steam launch put off. and by magic, as it
were, the clamor outside the Oceanic had
ceased, and the swarming sampans had
pulled and paddled out of sight. The
approaching launch bore a forked white
flag with a red ball in the centre and an
Imperial crown on top. This was the
Imperial launch with the Admiral on board.
The royal standard of Hawaii was now run
up to the main. Again a grand salvo
pealed forth from every war-ship, and chief
answered chief right royally in Yokohama
Admiral Nakamura of the Royal
Japinese Navy, came on board, and com
municating with the gentlemen of. His
Majesty's suite, conveyed to them His
Imperial Majesty's wish that his royal
brother of Hawaii would be the guest of
the Sovereign of Japan during all of his
stay on Japanese soil.
Ills Majesty consented to waive his
Incognito and become the guest of the
Emperor of Japan, as King of the Hawai
Eight state boats or barges, followed the
steam launch, and bore the King and suite
with baggage and attendants to the Iin
perial s ummer seat Noge Yama.
As the royal party landed and proceeded
on their way, they were greeted on all sides
with enthusiastic demonstrations of wel
come. At every crossing they.past, along
two miles of route, the Japanese and Hawai
ian flags were suspended from lofty poles
on either side, that leaned over almost
touching trucks, so that the Imperial white
banner and the cross and bars of Hawaii,
blended their folds together over the
heads of the passing cortege.
After a ceremonious reception at the
grand entrance of the Palace, His Majesty
was escorted to magnificent chambers and
parlor,' used as Imperial apartments that
were superbly tapestried, with ebony and
gold furniture, with most elaborate ara
besques, with palatial chandeliers, with doors
of enamel and gold ; and the burnished
gold and glossy lacquered arid enameled
surfaces reflected the surprise and delight
of our royal party.
His Majesty's suite were also provided
with apartments in the Palace.
Prince Higashi-Fushimi-no-Miya, waited
on our travellers.

ed their unqualified delight ; they were as
sured that this was but the threshold of the
Imperial palatial glories.
The royal party after spending the night
at Nogeyama, the Imperial summer seat,
left Yokohama the following day at 11
o'clock a. M., by express train for Tokio,
distant IS miles,and on arrival were received
by four Imperial Princes, who accompanied
His Majesty and suite to the Palace. His
Imperial Japanese Majesty met King Kala
kaua in the anta hall of the Palace, and
welcomed him to Japan with marked cor
diality. The King was then-conducted to
the saloon of the Empress, where he was
received with distinguished courtesy and
amicable attention. After a few hours re
pose, His Majesty the King, was informed
by an Imperial Prince of His Imperial
Majesty's approach, to return the visit of
the King of Hawaii in hi3 apartments.
Our Hawaiian royal party were highly
impressed with the admirable order of the
Imperial Palace at Tokio. The magnifi
cent park grounds seemed to be swarming
with attendants,and all dressed in European
fashion, of good style and quality of gar
ments. An admirable system of service
seemed to regulate the government of the
palace. Everybody and everything scru
pulously clean, and all work and service
carried on without any noise or confusion.
On the morning after arrival at Tokio the
Hawaiian visitors were surprised to find
that a fall Of snow, had occured during the
night, to the depth of 4 inches, and
had covered the Palace Tark with a com
plete mantle of white. Soon they ob
served some laborers with pieces of matting
about 6 feet long, and with pieces of bam
boo at each end, a simple contrivance for
removing rubbish, and in a few hours, not
a speck of snow was to be seen in the park.
This beautiful palace is shaped like a
letter II, with a central line of edifice, and
two wings of about the same length. The
Imperial walls are black, and black
and gold in glossy enamel appear every
where, as the expression of Japanese
Imperial taste. The walls of the palace
chambers are not papered, but draped or
tap2stried with exquisite patterns of muslin
and silk. Superb ebony and gold wardrobes
and beaufets, adorn the spacious chambers
and parlors. English fire-grates, with polish-:
ed marble or steel mantels are in all the
apartments. Numerous French and Swiss
clocks of beautiful and elaborate designs,
afford ample opportunity to note the flight
of time in this palace of dtdghts.
One thing of beauty especially attracted
the attention of our royal tourists, was the
regal Camellia, so superb and perfect in its
chosen homev In all parts of the palace
upon etageres and stately beaufets, they
beheld lofty lacquered vases, in which were
camellias, as large as saucers, cream tinted
and waxen white, like marvellous produc
tions of the most consummate art. This
roval flower ousrht to attain all its
perfection of beauty in Hawaii nei, and
we hone that one of the results of
His Maiestv's visit to Japan, will
be the cultivation of the camellia; so that
should a Japanese Emperor, or Imperial
Prince come this way, they will be. pleased
to be greeted by the queenly flower of their
own home. Also a wonderful variety of
miniature plants in vases the size of a tea
cup; and a great taste, and elegance of hor
ticulture, were everywhere observed.
In one chamber, the King and
suite found four perfect billiard
tables of the latest patterns set apart for
their use. In another apartment a grand
piano of the finest tone. Pictures, objects
of virtu, brie a brae, and curios of the rarest
quality in great profusion. And the physi
cal comforts of the travellers were admira
bly provided for. Fanciful dishes, yet of
excellent taste, were in profusion on the
dining table ; and in their private rooms,
each one of the party found costly lacquered
trays loaded with a variety of bonbons,
which they supposed could not be found
outside of Paris. All the table service used
was of solid gold or silver ware.
On the day following their arrival, the
royal party were escorted to the Imperial
Theatre, Shintomiza. Twenty-eight car
riages were required to take the train of
Imperial Princes and Princesses, and high
dignitaries, who formed the escort of His
Majesty the King. One thousand globe
shaped lanterns were displayed in front of
and around the theatre ; and each one had
the Imperial Japanese flag, and the Royal
Hawaiian standard painted on them.
Every walk, and every tree in the spacious
theatre garden was hung with illuminated
globes, every corridor and lobby was lined
with them ; and the interior of the theatre
was in a blaze of light. It was estimated
that over 3000 of these brilliant illuminated
lanterns decorated the great theatre, and
were an especial display, marvellous even
to Japanese eyes, in honor of King
Kalakaua' s visit.
The centre of the dress circle, an Imperial
reservation, capable ot seating 50 persons,
was fitted up and decorated most superbly.
The programme in English and Japanese
printed on white satin with gold
fringe, the Japanese Imperial and the royal
Hawaiian flags interwoven in colors. The
Imperial and Royal Standards decorating
the centre of the circle ; and also the front
of the stage. Elaborate lacquered tables
were placed before the royal party, and
loaded with sweetmeats, and cordials and
cigars ; all the gentlemen smoking, and in
dulging in a pose of ease and sans fason.qot
permitted at the Palace. His Majesty was
in evening full dress, and decorated with
the star of the order of Kalakaua. The
Princes present each wore a single star of
The impression produced by this audience
of wealthy Japanese, was that a high order of
intelligence pervaded the company. A
large number of spectacles and eyeglasses
were observed, on what appeared to be
very, studious faces. All well dressed, and
no vulgar, or clamorous applauding or his
sing. The make up and personal appearance of
the Princesses there present, call forth a
few enthusiastic remarks from our corres
pondent. They are described as having
very fair, pearly and transparent complex
ions, with high arched eye brows, a great
sweetness and beauty of expression, and
dressed very tastefully in soft, yet brilliant
silks ; and with a dazzling sparkle of bril
liants around their beautiful necks, and in
the lobes of their shell tinted ears.
On the stage, our travellers saw fairies
floating through the air like butterflies,
and a terrific giant fighting with about fifty
warriors ; and His Majesty was delighted
with the oddity and marvellous variety of
A succeeding day, His Imperial Majesty
of Japan, entertained His Hawaiian Majes
ty at a grand state dinner, for which 238
covers. were laid. On this occasion all the
Imperial Princes and Princesses of the
Court were present.' (Will give fuller par
ticulars in Saturday's issue.)
On the subject of religious matters and
the establishment of Christianity in Japan,
to which His Majesty paid an earnest and
intelligent attention, he was met with the
following information in respect to the First
Christian church in Yokohama. "On the
return of Commodore Perry from making
his treaty with Japan, and on touching at
the Sandwich Islands,the native Christians
of Honolulu made up a contribution of
$1000 towards building the first Christian
Church in Japan. This money was first en
trusted to the Am. Bd. Com. For. Mis. of
Boston, subsequently the funds were passed
over by a vote of the Sandwich Islands Chris
tians to the reformed Dutch cnurcn lioarti
of missions in New York, which board had
established a mission in Japan. With this
beginning, from Hawaiian Christians, and
additional funds from some private sources,
the Hon. Townsend Harris, U. S, Minister
to Japan, obtained a promise of a grant of
land for the uses of a Protestant Christian
Church from the Japanese Government;
and the result was a fine church building,
standing on what Is known as Commodore
Perry's Treaty grounds, near the principal
landing at Yokohama; This the hrst Pro
testant Christian Church in Japan organ
ized March 10th, 1872. Hince that time
no less than fifty Protestant Christian
Churches have been organized in different
parts of Japaa, under various missions."
His Majesty the King accepted an Invita
tion to visit this First Church of Yokohama
on their anniversary, the 10th of March, to
which the people of his Kingdom had so
1 iberallv contributed, many 3'ears ago. His
Majesty visited the Star in the East Lodge,
of F. M.. on the same day. The King and
suite went by special train.
We must pass by for the present, a very
interesting description of His "Majesty's
visits to the College of the Imperial Guard;
also the Imperial Engineering College.
On the afternoon of March 12th, His
Majesty the King was received in grand
audience by His Majesty the Emperor, at
the Private Palace ; the Imperial Prince
and Princesses in attendance. It was the
pecasion of the presentation to the Emper
or of the portrait of His Majesty the King,
and of Her Majesty Queen Kapiolani.
His Majesty the King was presented
with two Japanese armors of ancient style,
made of the best steel ; visors and all pol
ished ; very curious, and of largest size.
His Majesty the King received a multitude
of presents from various quarters ; and
must have felt keenly the situation, in hav
inir nomincr to return, lie snouiu nave
gone as a King, with a royal outfit, and
presents for Eastern Princes,
Wrhen the King and his suite visited the
Royokwan Mansion, in a grand park, in
Tokio, the grounds were illuminated by
over 4.000 Japanese glob lanterns ; and
the King and suite were robed in very rich
Japanese court costumes, provided express
ly for this occasion.
On the 14th of March the King was pre
sented with the grand cross of the Imperial
Japanese order of Kris-anthanum, by the
hands of His Imperial Majesty of Japan ;
and on the loth the Emperor lunched with
the King, and .was decorated by His Majes
ty of nawaii with the Grand Cross of Kam
ehameha. A number of Japanese decora
tions have been sent to Hawaii nei.
We have only glanced at many interest
ng and important incidents during the
King's sojourn of ten days, given in addi
tion to those we clip from Yokohama for
eign journals, whilst a guest of the Emperor
of Japan at Tokio ; and many we must
pass by for the present. But one we must
mention as gratifying to our editorial and
journalistic amour propre.and we trust will
be pleasing to our friends. Some incidents
attending the King's departure from Ha
waii ; the loyal ovation of Kohalans; and
espeeiall' the incident of the bearing of
the King on the shoulders of his people,
through the surf by torchlight, were dis
cussed in the grand banqueting hall of the
Palace of Akasaka ; and the AdvkrttserJ
of Honolulu, that had been thoughtfully
transmitted to, and carefully read by, gen
tlemen of the Imperial household, was
quoted as authority in speaking of the
story. His Imperial Majesty was much
gratified to be informed of this demonstra
tion of enthusiastic loyalty to his royal
guest, when at home ; and we are com
manded to forward regularly two copies of
the P. C. Advertiser to the Secretary of
His Imperial Majesty's Household ; so that
we may be enabled, as faithful chroniclers,
to keep His Imperial Majesty, and the Im
perial Princes, correctly advised in respect
to Hawaiian affairs.
EXTHACTS FBOM JAPANESE JOURNALS. AbETVAL
About half-past seven this morning the Oceanic
was signalled, and immediately there were signs
of activity among the shipping, as it was ob
served that the steamer flew the Hawaiian flag.
The Mitsu Bishi steamers hastily decked their
rigging with bunting ; and as the vessel threaded
her way through the shipping, the yards of the
men-of-war were manned and a salute of twenty
one guns fired in honor of King Kalakaua.
The King of Hawaii physically is a fine man,
tall and stout, with very intelligent features.
Hiii Majesty made himself particularly sociable
dining the passage, conversing freely with all,
and so made many friends.
His Majesty landed at the Port Admiral's
office, Benten, at 9.30-a.m., where he was recived
by several Japanese of distinction, including
members of the Imperial family and Prince
Date. The King was dressed in plain clothing,
and protected from the cold by a large ulster.
At 10.45 the King left Benten for Nogeyama, a
detachment of marines being drawn up at the
gate of exit from the Port Admiral's offie. and
a naval band played as the rarriage passed out.
An immense ciowd lined the road to Nogevama,
Hrs Majesty the King of llawnii arrived here
yesterday (Friday) mor;iinr at 8 am., in the
Oceanic. As the steamer moved tip to her
anchorage, the meif-of-war hi i: arbor dressed
ship and manned yards, the ci- -vof the Russian
and Japanese vessels also cheering heartily as
the Oceanic passed them. His Majesty was
visited on board by Mr. Hachisuka, ex-Daimiyo
of Awa, Admiral Xakainura, Mr. Ishibashi,
Secretary of the Foreign Cffice and others, as
well as by the Russian Admiral and Staff. He
subsequently embarked in the Emperor's State
barge and proceeded to the Port Admiral's Office,
where he was received by Mr. Date, Ex-Daimij'o
of TJwajima, Mr. Hijikata, Vice Minister of the
Household Department, Mr. Sannomiya. Mr.
Nagasaki and several Naval and Military officers.
Mr. R. Irwin, Consul for Hawaii in Japan, and
Mr. Stevens, secretary of the U. S. Legation
also waited on His Majesty. From the Port
Admiral's Office His Majesty proceeded in a
state carriage to the Summer Palace at Iseyama,
which had been placed at his disposal by the
Emperor. He was there visited by H. I. H.
Prince Fushimi, Mr. Uyeno, Vice Minister of
Foreign Affairs, and many other officials of high
rank. To-day (Saturday) he proceeded to
Tokiyo by the 12, o'clock traia and was met at
Shimbashi terminus by four Imperial Princes,
who accompanied him first to an audience with
His Majesty the Emperor and afterwards to their
own houses, whence he ultimately proceeded to
the Yenrjyokwan, which has been prepared for
his reception during the period of his sojourn
here. The King's name is Kalakaua, which may
be translated, "The day of battle." His Majesty

is nearly rifty years old, having been born in
1831. In personal appearance he' is about the
- nuddle height, thickset, but of really handsome
personal appearance. His complexion is not
darker than that of an ordinary Japanese. Tht
Japan. Daily Mail.
Some of our feUow citizens are a good deal
exercised about the reception accorded to the
King of Hawaii, but it seems to . us that Japan
has very little choice in the matter. Her guest
is either royal or not royal, and if the former,
would it be either hospitable or expedient to tell
him in so many words that there are kings and
kings, and that he is just a little below the degree
at which recognition of rank ceases to be possible?
If His Majesty were a cannibal or a Zulu there
might be some grounds for the predictions of
ridicule to be presently incurred by Japan, as
well as for the outcry against unnecessary ex
penditure raised by certain well-meaning but
somewhat petulant folk. He happens, however,
to be a most agreeable and accomplished gentle
men and n dignified one to boot; a gentleman
who was for two months the honored guest of
the United States, and to whom the President of
a country which in point of wealth and impor
tance could afford to carry a good deal of weight
in a race with the states of the old world, did
not hesitate to accord Royal honors. The Japan
At thk Akasaka Palace.
The Mainichi Shinbun, writes as follows: His
Majesty the King of Hawaii went, as we stated
was his intention, to the Akasaka Palace on the
11th inst. at 2 p. m. where he had an interview
with His Majesty the Emperor. Refreshments
were partaken of, and a conversation ensued on
the political administration of Japan and Hawaii.
The King left at about three o'clock. He was to
have visited the national exhibition again that
morning, but the visit was postponed owing to
the inclemenc3' of the weather. The King studies
his people greatly, and has long paid great
attention to sanitary affairs. He has established
a lazaretto on the island of Molokai, under
proper official superintendence. The patients
all receive medical treatment and are also en
gaged in such employment as they are acquainted
with. Thus they can be cured of their disease,
while at the same time they can cam a livelihood.
The KUiai Biyoin (Leprosy Hospital) at Tokio,
sent a present of it quantity of medicines used in
curing leprosy to Hawaii, through the Japanese
consul in that country, in November 1879,.
Availing himself of the visit of the King, Mr.
Goto Shobuii, the president of the said hospital,
sent his son, Shochku, to the Enriokwan on the
the 9th inst. to inquire whether these had proved
efficacious or not. The son had an interview
with the Chief Commissioner of Colonial Affairs
of Hawaii, after which His Majesty received him
in audience, and thanked him for the present.
He put many questions as to the oritrin of
leprosjr, the methods of curing it, tc., to which
his interviewer gave minute answers and present
ed a pamphlet, written in English, containing
explanations about this disease. His Majesty
read it through, and expressed much pleasure
with it saying that should he ever visit Hawaii,
he (the King) would- be glad to extend him every
possible assistance during his stay.
We understand that His Majesty Kalakaua,
King of Hawaii, who is the grand master of free
masonry in his own kingdom, has consented to
meet the Masonic Fraternity of Yokohama and
Tokio on Monday evening, when a ball will be
given in his honor at the. Masonic hall. The
ball, however, will havef giothing of an official
character, and will be strictly limited to the
subscribers and their friend, We are requested

The Masonic Ball.
The Masonic Hall has perhaps never been better
filled than it was last night, owing to the antici
pated visit of His Majesty the King of Hawaii.
On receipt of the sad news of the at-cis'nationof
the Emperor of Russia, His Majesty t U-graphed
his inability to attend. For the satue rer. on no
officials were- present. The programm. was,
however, carrianl. out, and we can contra t .'te

The llochi Shinbun writes as follows : On the
12th at 10 a. in. His Majesty the "Eung-lft the
Enriokican for the paper mill at Oji.- He was
attended by Messrs. Hachisuka and Date, in his
carriage, and escorted by Colonels Jndd and
Armstrong, Their Excellencies Sano, Minister of
Finance, Hijikata, Assistant Vice Mininter of the
Imperial Household, and several other Japanese
officials. His Majesty arrived at the mill at 11:10
a. m. and was received by His Imperial Highness
Higashi Fushimi no Miya, and several officials
of the Foreign Affairs, who awaited him. After a
short rest he inspected all the machinery and
buildings, and visited the workshops of the"
Seishi Kwaisha (Paper Factory) in the afternoon.
On his way back he called at the country seat of
Mr. Shibusawa at Asukayama, where a supper
was given. His Majesty returned to his resi
dence at Little after sunset. As he is to leave on
the 16th inst., it is said that he is to proceed to
the Imperial Palace on the 14th inst. at noon to
bid farewell. The Daijin and Sangi will, we
hear, give an entertainment to His Majesty in the
Enriokwan on the 15th inst., when there will be
an exhibition of fireworks.
The Jloclu Shinbun informs that on the evening
of the 5th inst., the princess of the blood, the
Daijin. Sangi, and other officials went to the
residence of His Majesty the King of Hawaii,
where an entertainment, including an exhibition
of conjuring, was given. Several Japanese aire
were also performed. On the 6th instT, His
Royal Highness was to visit the National Exhi
Ixpesiai, Court News.
The Mainichi Shinbun writes as follows : His
Majesty the Emperor, accompanied by Mr.
Yoneda, one of the Imperial chamberlains, left
the Palace at 9.30 a', m. on the 8th instant and

cillors ; Tokudaiji, Minister of the Imperial
Household Department, and many high Militajy
officers, and His Excellency the Hawaiian Minister
of the Royal Household Department. They rode
round the parade ground, after which they wit
nessed the review from a tent. The . King left
at about 11. 10, bidding adieu to the Emperor in
in the tent, and the Emperor shortly afterwards
left for the Talace. On the 7th instant the
Emperor presented some " Yamato-nishiki "
(valuable Japanese brocade) and several other
gifts to the King of Hawaii. The King accom
panied by His Imperial Highness Fushimi-no-Miya,
visited the Govenment Printing Office on
the morning of the 7th inst. It is said that the
royal guest will leave for China by au English
steamer on the 16th inst. Japan Daily Mail
His Majesty the King of Hawaii proposes to
leave Japan on the 16th instant. He was received
in farewell audience by His Majesty the Mikado
at noon to-day. This evening the King will be
present at a ball given by the Right Worshipful
the District Grand Master and the Masonic
fraternity of Yokohama.
Another chart shows, with painful dis
tinctiveness, the vast tracts of soil that remain
totally uncultivated in Japan; not more than
one fourth of the country, if so much, being
made to produce anything towards the sup
port of the inhabitants. The choice bits only
appear to have been selected for the growth
of cereals or vegetables, the cultivation of silk
and cotton, and in the large plains' or moun
tain districts land suited for the rearing of
cattle and the production of fruit, vegetables
or corn is permitted to lie unbroken or unused.
A model of a valley in Kiso, made of wood, is
not only an excellept specimen of the peculiar
genius of the people among whom we live, as
a work of art, but it demonstrates, even more
lorciDiy tnan tne map referred to, the very
small proportion, compared with ' the whole,
of soil utilised for agricultural, pastoral or
any other purpose. This model is said to
have been drawn to a scale; and a careful
view of it will enable a person to form a
fairly accurate idea of the natural features of
that part of the country. Miniature houses
represent the villages and towns, green trees
the forests, and small brown patches the
ground under cultivation. The roads ap
pear to be rough and narrow; and no
doubt the difficult' of transit has much
to do with the very small proportion of
land made -productive. If King Kalakaua
is on a visit to '- this country with the
ostensible intention of inducing Japanese
to desert the broad 1 acres here which only
await tilling to make the people prosperous
and independent, -and go with him to a
country of which they know nothing, a study
of the maps and models in the third building
devoted to N agriculture at the exhibition will
be sufficient for His Majesty to see the fruit
lessness and utter . , absurdity of asking the
people to abandon the vast natural wealth un
developed in Japan. Japan Oazette.
