The visit of Admiral Togo and suile
to the United States brings to mind
the tour of this country by representa
tives of the island kingdom over half
a century ago. The Japanese embassy
cam? to America in 18G0, at a time
?when Japan as one of the family of the
nations of the earth was ahout as
insignificant as is Siam now. The old
Aquia creek steamer "Philadelphia"
with the embassy aboard stopped at tin
wharf at the foot of Prince street ivheie
a crowd of Alexandrians had gathered
to look at the orientals. They wore
queues and were attired in costumes
which had undergone no change in
pattern since the days of Confucious.
Some of the paity carried swords about
a foot, h'tig, which were more for
buitu utility, and resembled
pikers. "Japanese Tommies" were
euphonious titles given them by the
boys of that generation. But how
limes have changed since 1300! The
l ttle brown man who is now the guest
of the nation has taken bis stand with
Horatio Nelson, while military cliief
t .iins of whom any country should be
proud have emerged from Japan dur
ing recent years. The Japanese are
no longer objects of curiosily to be
V-ized upon by the haughty Occident,
1-ut are being received as the peers of
:my race.
As more and more we are learning
t. ? safely navigate the upper ocean of
the air a greater degree of reciprocity
1) :tween the nations becomes inevi
t i'>le. It is impossible to establish or
in lintain fixed political boundary
"lines in the upper atmosphere. The
a. roplanists pay slight attention to
hostile frontiers or customs regulations.
Without asking leave they throw aerial
hridges across the water courses. They
may in good time link far separated
countries together across dividing
oceans. This conquest of the air, in
volved in the flight of airmen and the
ndine of wireless messages, is an cx
n nsion nf the era of freedom beyond
tho dream of conquerors and law
?>>t kers.
