riioaiiEss IN JAPAN.
A Fascinating Story of Its Political
ttnd Social llyform
Tho transformation, political and
social, which Japan has undorgono
within tho last thirty years roads al
most like a fairy talo. If tho popo
of Romo vvoro to lay aside all tno
trappings of tho papal rank and I ho
insignia of ollicc, and tako his place
as thu first citizen of Italy, eager for
civil and military reform, ami for
tho restoration of Italian unity and
grealneis, it would (.-onttittite nearly
an exact pirallol to the great re
formation which has heon wrought
in Jatmti within the memory of even
middle-aged American. Tho tory
of "The Land of tho Mikado" is a
fascinating one, wanting in noun of
tho elements of romance, ami its
solient features are well-sketehed in
outline by J. Castell Hopkins in a
paper in Tho Engineering Magazine.
Mir. Hopkins presents a rough
sketch of Japan under tho feudal
system, intensely hostile to foroigu
ors, dowu to tho British bombard
ment of Kagosimca iu ISO t, and
"During this very time, howovor,
tho volcanic action must have been
, preparing, which in a low years was
to cast off with lightning rapidity
tho garments of medieval institu
i tions, tho power of a ceremonious
and stiporstitious priesthood, the in-
iluenco of an invisible and iufalliblo
i head, tho authority of sanguinary
and uncontrollable chiefs, the gov
1 eminent of crafty and faithles lead
ers. How it was done is not known
j to this day. Tho great revolution
' does not scorn to have had its great
i leader. No master-mind appears as
I having directed tho masses and con
i trolled tho classes. Yet in lSlW a
coalition of turbulent nobles anil
princes united in olloiing to cousoli-
orial rurhts and revenues. A body
1 of men who had instigated and al-
1 lowed tho murder of foreigners and '
attack upon British and other consu
lates, issued a manifesto that their
I object was 'to enable their country
to tako its place with tho other
countries of tho world ' r,.5ho bitter
i opponents of extern"' iuu and for
eign intercourse overthrow the Ty-
i coon and his whole elaborate ystom
of commercial tnonopdy, The Mi

monarch, grafted upon an eastern

I "It was the most marvelous, inter
esting and peculiar episode iu thu
i political history of the world. There
has boon nothing to compare with it
i anywhere. All thu ancient land
1 marks of Japanou. policy, statecraft,
, and administration were thrown
down as if by one of those volcanic
1 shocks for which tho islands ueru
famous. They woio replaced within
l half a dozen years by elements of
western civilization and government
which have elsewhere been the pro
duct of centuries of slow ami stormy
I development. Old ami new wore
commingled, and forty millions of
people of Asiatic stock dropped al
most in a moment from the feudal
ism of a thousand years into a sys
- torn of modern monarchical govern
. mont with a gradual but steady
approximation toward tho 'popular'
! government of the present moment.
It was in the si range realization of
thu fact thattlie-e latter iusti'utious
could not bo had all iu a year that
wo recognize a quality iu tho people,
