HON. JOHN A. BIN Gil AM
Our Oblo Nalfcbbor, a Htm nirin watt
litjtlumin?lll<t hortlcn tn Japan.
The Rev. W.T. Meloy.awell known min
ister of Eastern Ohio, furnishes an interest
ing sketch in regard to the useful labors o
our neighbor, lion. John A. Bingham, t
man who id tcarcely less popular on thi
aide of the river than a monghis own people
Mr. Bingham, so long tbe representative
of tbe Belmont district in Congress, hoi
been for tbo last twelve years Unitec
States Minister to Jtpan, and has but re
cently returned to bis home at Cadiz
Obio.
In a conversation with Iiev. Mr. Meloj
about two years ago, General Grant, ii
speaking of Mr. Bingham, remarked tba
he never made an appointment of whirl
he felt so proud ss that of Minister Bins
bam to Japan. Upon being asked why
? 1 -* lin knil tnlldllt. lh? nun
lie SftlU, Otruuou i.o liou I
pie of Japan that they are a nation, an<
has taught the r.ctiona rf the earth to ic
apuct them an such."
Mr. Binxhaiu'tj m?rvic.'3 were retainei
by President flayer, Garfiwld and Arthur
Much of the development of Japan ha
therefore oc< urra i during hia sojoun
near the court of the Mikado. Uearrivei
in Japan in 1873. 11 j at once inaugurate!
that policy toward the Japanese Govern
ment that htts won for him and for ou
Nation the respect and praise of the civil
ired world.
It will he nec'fmaiy to look at the exist
ing niate of aftairn at the tune of hisariiva!
In 1805 the fleet of Great Britain was ii
strength in Japam-fle waters, and a de
mand was made under tbic pressure b;
Great Br.ta:n lor iht* formation of a treat]
that took from Japan her inborentani
rightful Authority over her foreigu coin
merce. France, the Netherlands, and thi
United States co-operated with her in th?
formation of a treaty in which it wa
acrreed that the tariff'duties on all foreigi
imports to that country should not exceec
5 percent ad valorem, it aleo included j
large free list subject to no duty, ami ex
eluded no article of import save opium
The rank injustice of this will apnea:
when we remember that both Great Brit
aiu am! the United .States have a revenui
from duties, the former of $ll.)5,000,000anc
the latter of $100 000,000, while Japan
with an importation of foreign goodi
amounting to $40,000,010 annually, re
ceives only a revenue of $1,500,000. Thm
she has lost annually not less than $5,000,
000.
in addition to this she was also de
prived ol her rightful contxol over the sub
jecta an?l citizens of these government]
resident in Japau. This outrage will ap
pear more fully when we remember tha
by false construction of former treatiei
Jap'vn was denied the right U
imp0B0 the obligations of law oi
European subjects resident in the Empire
and could not therefore collect taxes or
their lands and goods. Against such
wrongs as these Mr. Bingham determined
ly set his face and exerted to the full hii
powers of diplomacy. But if Americani
are filled with indignation nt the pictun
already drawn of the state of aQairs it
Japan, they will find that their sense ol
in at! ; of ill mnrfl iii>nnlr nutracred hv thf
conduct of tile Western Powers.
MAS Or COCBAOK.
The treaty that had thus been made
with Japan provided that either party tc
it might, at the end of six years (187:.'}, demand
a review thereof on notice. In J 871
Japan made that demand, but all foreign
powers refused save the United States,
Such a wrong has seldom been allowed tc
pass unnoticed. Had it been committed
by an individual in place of powerful nations
he would .havo beon sentenced tc
the felon's cell. To do right at such a
time involved not only courage but wisdom.
Fortunately for the honor of oui
Republic, we had in our Minister a man
who had both courage and skill. At an
early day in Mr. Bingham's service he fa
vored a just treaty with that country,fully
according to her all her rights. This treaty
was formulated in 1878, bat, for reasone
which may easily be guessed, Japan,
while deeply gratefuf to the Republic
for thin, asked an additional crude to
bo added thereto, providing that
ttiia treaty should not go into operation
until the other l'owera should
conclude a similar treaty with her. Although
seven years have passed no othoi
foreign nation has consented to make a
similar treaty. Thus it is seon that Japan
holds the United States in the highest regard.
This is admitted by other nations,
in the London and China Expreu, a journal
which represents European policy in
East, there is a very interesting article,
bearing date April 17, 1885. After commenting
on the longth of time that Mr.
Bingham has been naar the Court of the
Mikado, and criticising our civil service
that allowod him to be retired, the editoi
?ays: "He I Mr. Bingham) brought to the
questions with which he had to deal io
Japau a mind steeped to the core in tht
broad principles and methods of juris
prudonce as distinguished from the pettitogging
methods which are the sole stock
in trado of sj many lawyers, English at
well as American. lie has on all occasion
n!rim tin mrwl rPAflv And full ramoni.
tion of the various steps of Japanese
progress. His advice has frequently,
parhaps constantly, been sought and
granted, and, above all, hia views on the
extont and limitations of the extra-territoriality
clauses in the treaties have been
those for which the Japanese have contended.
Over and over again we liud
him standing alone against the rest of bio
colleagues in supporting the Japanese interpretation
of their rights and powers
under these clauses." After referring to
the position that Mr. Bingham took in
regard to the duties of foreigners resident
in Japan, which aro simply to obey the
laws lh so far as they did not conflict with
right3 accorded them by existing treaties;
and also to the fact that tho other Minis
tera claimed the right of their subjects to
live in Japan and violate Japanese laws,
the editor says: "The point need not bo
discussed hero; we only advert to it to exClain
the unbounded popularity enjoyed
y the retiring Knvojr in all intelligent
Japanese circles in the Capital, and ahe
regret with which his departure will bo
witnessed. Mr. Bingham was aa tonacioua
as any Minister could possibly be of what
he rouarded as the true interests of this
country.
IIONOR1KO A STATESMAN.
The departure of such a man could only
be attended by universal regret. But it is
gratifying to notice how all combined to
heap honors on the head of the departing
statesman. Half an hour before tho deJiarture
of the train by which he was to
eavo Tokio for Yokohama a remarkable
company began to assemble. Let us look
in and see them, There were Prince San-1
jo, the Chancellor of the Empire, attended
by every member of the Japanese Cabinet
except a few who were unable to leave
their homes. The Corps Diplomatique
(ur.d all prominent foreign residents of the
city were there. There was not a single
nationality unrepresented except the German,
and a family calamity hindered tho
presence of Count Doenhoff.
The question inay arise: Has there
beou sufficient development made in
Japan to justify the generous policy that
has been shown toward that Empire? The
work done in Japan since 1876, or during
the period of Mr. Bingham's Embassy,
may be thus summed up:
1. The abolition of trial by torture.
'2. The establishment of the freedom of
religion, conscience, and the press.
3. The inauguration of a compulsory |
system of education for all the children of
both sexes. This law secures four months'
annual schooling for each child from the
age of 6 to IS. Parents and guardians are
punished as criminal* who, without good
and suiliuieni reasons, prevent their children
from attending school. Thus the
right to learn and know is sccured, and
that, without money and without price.
4. A postal system as well arranged ao
our own, connected with which there is a
: postal savings system.
O. .Many BCIlOUiH rouionoucu uy wiw.uu:
ariua and by Japanese subjects.
G. Many Protestant Christian churches
orwanizod by European and American
missionaries.
7. The Empire has built large universi'
tifH and coUi-kph in the Capital and sup
plied them with competent instructors in
f every department oi modern literature
and science. It is, however, to be regretted
that among thrse instructors there are
3 some who reject that beautiful faith with.
out which life cannot be truly ennobled.
i 8. A large commercial and naval marine
' has been established.
1 0. Three hundred miles of railway and
1 5,000 miles of telegraph lines have been
. constructed and are in operation within
the Empire, and two ocean cables connec t
' the Empire with the telegraph system of
the world.
7 10. Daily and weekly papers are issued
i by the thousand in the Japanese and EngI
liflh languages.
11. Our own language is taught in the
1 Japanete schools, and readily spoken by
- the J apanese people at the open porta. The
t Japause language ia being rapidly changed
into our own. and the ftoman letteis are
~ taking the place of the Japanese. In 1880
1 the Kuiperor issued a proclamation doclar
ing his purpose to adopt a wider constitution
of government for his people; providI
ing for a Congress or National Parliament;
detiniug its powers and the prerogatives ol
theJimperor, and conforming the laws oJ
b the"Kuipire to the wants and the interest*
1 ol the people. This change to be made in
i 18U0. ft'orae one will say: "Why wait
ten years to do this?" It uiuit be remem*
bored that such a form of government im
pjii'8 a higher degree ot education and
r civilization than hue prevailed in Japan.
There.are gravo doubts entertained by
somo whether this cm be done at thie
time; but the Mikado certainly hopes to
- be able to do this.
The people who have made this woni
drous advance were but serfs in 1S68, and
- had been for centuries. Now they are
j freeholders and freemen. Buch a progrtts
r has never before in the history of the race
1 been equaled. Of the former barbarities
of that people who are being elevated by
? the influence of our civilization it is neither
* pleasant nor profitable to write. An ac
..?"..Iloliml .>?>? fnrinarl'tr Miniatflr nf
i Oftina, said to me a few days ago: "i
1 have seen in Japan the unclothed savage
i looking up fromtho dirt in which he was
- wallowing at the lines of telegraph being
. stretched above him. Let ub not censure
r the Emperor for pcslponing the govern
mental changes for ten years. It will be
j wonderful if he can accomplish it then."
1 It is claimed forour distinguished Amer,
icau, that he has been au inspiratiou to
s every step of progress that has been made
in the Empire during the mighty advances
i of the la&t twelve years.

Common Sense
IN THEJUIUHEN!
1. Dr. Mott, of New York, fed a
number of dogs for some weeks on
bread made with Alam Baking
Powders. In eyery instant? the
dogs lost appetite, sickened, and
some died. At the same time he
fed other dogs on bread made with
pure Tartar Baking Powder, with
no injury to appetite or health.
2. The use of alum in bread is
prohibited by law in some places,
because it has been found to injure
health.
3. Sonic people buy Alum Baking
Powders because they art,
cheap! Is it real economy, which
to sate a few pennies now, lays a
foundation for ill health and doetor's
bills later on!
lou are on the safe side in using
LUGAN, US I & (JU.'S
EXCELSIOR
Baking Powder!
Which Contains no ALUM or
other injurious ingredient.
