The Japanese as They Are.
Rear Admiral Belknap, retired, in his recent letter to Hie New York Su?i concerning the Japanese, pays their martial spirit a splendid tribute. He says that the annals of Japan for the past 1,000 years show as much personal valor, strategic ability, and heroic incident as can be found in the history of Great Britain or of any oth er European power during that period. Niutaku, the emperor who ruled some time in the fourth century, was as wise a prince as the great Alfred, and did as much for his people. The reign of the Empress Sukio, twb centuries later, was as good for her subjects as was that of Queen Elilizabeth for English men nearly 1.000 years after. Wil liam the Conqueror was more than equaled as a soldier and as a statesman by Yoritomo, while others whose names are easily recalled, were the equals of the Black Prince, Richard Coeurde Lion, Marlborough, Clive and Wellington. As hand to hand fighters no Europ ean race ever passed the Japanese, and if Clive had invaded their country he would have been driven into the sea. Since Commodore Perry visited Ja pan in 1853, her progress has been more rapid than that of any other country in the world. After 186S feu dalism was apolisbed and the Japanese soon leaped into the front rank of na tions. Their army is now the equal of the British army in organization and equipment, and superior to it in hom ogeneity, mobility and discipline. Their navy is patterned after British and American lines, and is one that any nation might envy The Japanese statesmen have watch ed the land-grabbing policy of England, and they are determined that she shall not play any tricks with Japan. It is their avowed intention to make their country the England of the Pacilic, and that is her status to-day. Admiral Belknap calls attention to the speedy collapse of China in the war now being waged, and pronoun ess Ping Yang and Yalu among the most momentous land and sea fight 3 of modern times. The instant mobiliza tion of the Japanese army, with its complete preparation for every detail of foreign service, contrasts favora bly "with the delay and blundering of the British during the Crimean war, and the readiness of the Japanese na vy makes a superior showing over the British navy in the same war. When the present conflict ends Ja pan will take her place as one of the conquering nations of the century, and she will not stand any nonsonse from any power. With her army and navy, Krupp guns, strong forts and heavy batteries, she will be prepared to drive ff or destrov anv hostile fleet. Admi ral Belknap concludes as follows: I have seen in recent years the offi cers and crews of English and Japan ese ships of war under various circum stances. I have seen an English ad miral handle a force of ten ships in Japanese waters and a Japanese admi ral maneuver a fleet of twenty-two ships, ahd I do not hesitate to express the opinion that were English and Japanese fleets of about, equal strength to meet iu battle the chances would be as favorable to the Japanese as to the English. The Japanese will fight; let there be no mistake about that. The sun does not shine on a more deter mined or more intrepid race than that of Japan. The martial spirit of Japan antedates that of Britain; and hereaf ter, whether on land or sea, the arch robber of the universe will find all she cares to meet if she comes into hostile contact with the forces of Dai Nippon. The growing strength of the British navy is a menace to the rest of the world; it is intended to be. and as such it ought to be crushed. The sun flag of Japan may yet humble the proud flag of Britain. Such may be the dis tinction reserved to that newcomer among the nations. This estimate of the new power in the east will surprise some of our read ers, but it is the deliberate opinion of one of our ablest naval officers who has made a special study of the subject.
