THE YELLOW PERIL
Judge Hart on Phases of the
Problems Connected With
the Japanese.
Editor Advertiser: In your issue of
Dec. 20th last, under heading "Europe
and Japan" you say, referring to the
Emperor William's allegorical painting
"The i'ellow Peril," "among Eastern
clouds be limned the hideous face of
the Japanese god of war and in the
foreground, facing it, he ranged the
nations of Europe, armored of breast
and suvorded of hand."
Having a reproduction of the Ger
man Kaiser's said allegorical painting
I find in it no hideous face of Japa
nese god of war, on the contrary amid
dense black clouds sits in the East the
mild benign figure of Buddha. The
artist, apparently to make this clear,
and probably for other reasons, has
the figure backed with pointed tongues
of flame. To this figure of Buddha
the Archangel Michael is -directly call
ing the attention of seven female
figures, "armored of breast and sworded
of hand," representing the Powers of
Europe. Above them stream rays of
benignant light from the cross that
to the Western world represents so
much, also near them flutter a couple
of doves, emblematical, I suppose, of
the mild and gentle characteristics of
armed Europe! The strongly developed
religious tendencies of the Emperor
William are well known and surely in
fluenced the royal artist in his work.
At any rate the contrast between the
mild light streaming from the cross
and the darkness surrounding Buddha
are strongly marked. And yet; well,
instead of what is uppermost in my
mind let me give another's words:
I, Buddh, who wept with all my broth
er's tears,
Whose heart was broken by a whole
world's woe,
Laugh and am glad, for there is Lib
erty 1
Ho! ye who suffer! know
Ye su.er from yourselves. None else
compels,
None other holds you that ye live
and die,
And whirl upon the wheel, and hug and
kiss
It's spokes of agony,
It's tire of tears, its nave of nothing
cess.
Behold, I show you Truth! Lower
than hell,
Higher than heaven, outside the ut
most stars,
Farther than Brahm doth dwell,
Before beginning, and without end,
As space eternal and as surety sure
Is fixed a Power divine which moves
to good,
Only its laws endure.
It seeth everywhere and marketh all
Lo right it recompensed I do one
wrong,
The equal retribution must be made,
Though Dharma tarry long.
By this the slayer's knife did stab
himself;
The unjust judge hath lost his own
defender;
The false tongue dooms its lie; the
creeping thief
And spoiler rob, to render.
Such is the law that moves to righteous
ness,
Which none at last can overturn or
stay;
The heart of it is Love, the end of it
Is Peace and Consummation sweet.
Obey!
eriiy sir, mis morning, you say
with truth, "It is a high compliment
to Japan that Germany is sending offi
cers of the general staff to study her
military system." But, Mr. Editor, the
Western world has much more to learn
from Japan than is to be gleaned by
officers studying her military system.
"Japan, constant in self-sacrifice and
silent in success, has, by exertions of
which even those who knew her best
had hardly deemed her capable, finally,
and without fear of challenge taken
her place among the Great Powers of
the world. That place she has won
not by the force of arms alone, not all
great conquering nations of the world
have become Great Powers, but by
the genius and devotion of her people,
a genius which we have by no means
fathomed, and a devotion which we
have yet to learn to imitate. When
barely half a century ago the first
foreign representatives set foot in
Japan no one-divined that 'that para
dise set in the seas' possessed in the
hearts and wills of her , people a
treasure more marvellous than any that
ever found its way from her studios
to the Western world. The value of
that treasure is now appreciated to the
full." Unquestionably so! and only
the murkiest mind can fail to see that
to treat such a nation with discourtesy
or unfairness is simply to court trouble.
CHARLES F. HART.
Honolulu, Jan. 4 1907.
PROTESTANT CHURCH AT THE
SETTLEMENT BLOWN DOWN
January 8, 1907.
Editor Advertiser: Much has been
published about the self-sacrificing de
votion of Koman Catholic priests and
sisters at work in the Leper Settle
ment for the unfortunate patients
there. No one with any humanitarian
spirit would for an instant wish to ut
ter a disparaging word concerning
those who have given themselves so
nobly to this Christ-like work. Indeed
when the calamity overtook the Roman
Church building there recently not a
few Protestants subscribed for its re
erection. But many forget and few outside
of Hawaii know that for more than
forty years Protestant Hawaiian pas
tors have been laboring at Kalaupapa
with a zeal and self-denial equal to
that displayed by any Europeans and
that by their faithful service they
have cheered and inspired hundreds of
their countrymen as only Christian
ministers of the same race can.
One of the disastrous results of the
late storm was the overthrow of the
Kalaupapa Protestant church. The
following letter from the devoted
pastor, Eev. David Kaai, tells the
story. I give it in translation:
"On the 30th of December, 1906,
there came a very strong kona wind to
the Settlement and knocked down to
the ground the homes of the patients.
The same misfortune overtook our
church. The bell tower was over
thrown and half of the corrugated iron
AN OPEN LETTER TO
it
To American,
Dear Fellow Countryman: As this is
the time for suggestions, we read your
"Carnival Suggestion" with great in
terest this morning. I wish I were
more of a .politician and less an artist,
for I am afraid I have lived in this
lovely land of sunshine until I do not
know a Republican from a Democrat
Now, dear American, 11 1 may
call you by name in this way, could
you send us your real name in a sealed
envelope!
We would like the committee on
costumes to design you an elaborate
Uncle Sam suit. Then with you could
be "Cotfee" in a gunny sack and
"Sugar" ol paper and "Labor" in an
auto. Could you suggest to us the
proper appearance of a mayor or an
aldermanf None have ever been seen
in Honolulu. I have an old history
book of England and in it is the pic
ture of the mayor of London walking
about with a kerosene lantern with
eight sides. This would not meet with
your progressive American idea, neither
would the odor. I think you would
prefer an automobile with no perfume
and electric lights.
The Mardi Gras this year will prob
ably be given indoors at night. This
is not the time of the year for out
of-door events, so perhaps the water
carnival part could be given in our
beautiful summer time. However, as
you say "Society often shapes the
events to follow." I am going to turn
prophet. I know the first event of
history, which will take place in the
Oriental-American affair.
Let me describe the float which so
ciety could drag into the ballroom on
noiseless wheels drawn by cables of
silken cord. 1
Scene I. The place where the cable
may be picked up and cut just out
side of Honolulu.
Enter training ships. Pick up some
thing out of water. PerhapB fishing
sampans in distress; perhaps a few
other things.
Scene II. Honolulu in confusion.
Yours for the future welfare of our
Territory and the . establishing of the
Kilohana Art Institute where Amer
ican youths will receive many advan
tages.

SPEAKS WELL OF CHAMBER
LAIN'S COUGH REMEDY.
Mr. John Main, Manager for P. J. Pe
tersen & Company, Bloemfontein. So.
Africa, makes the following statement
for the benefit of the public: "Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy has a big sale
here, and as we have been handling it
for several years, we can confidently
say that we sell more of It than we do
of any other preparation of that kind."
This medicine is especially recommend
ed for coughs, colds, croup and whoop
ing cough, and can be given to the little
ones with absolute security. For sale

for Hawaii.

roofing was blown into the sea. Up
to this date this has not been recover
ed. The other half was scattered over
the ground and our church was de
stroyed. I was there at the time and
qufekly called together the Board of
Deacons to consider what should be
done. It was decided to appoint two
committees first a local committee to
secure aid on the ground by giving
concerts; second a committee to ask
help from outside the Settlement. Our
own share will be the expense of car
pentering and of other work. What
we desire from friends elsewhere in
the islands is as follows: 30,000 white
shingles, 100 lbs. galvanized shingle
nails, 600 lbs. of white paint, 25 gal
lons raw linseed oil, 5 gallons turpen
tine. ' ' We have already begun to ereet
the bell tower. The work goes slowly
with the few weak lepers who are mem
bers of the church who give -their
labor."
Eev. Mr. Kaai like most of the pas
tors who have labored in the Settle
ment is not a leper. He is doing a
fine work there. We trust that the
public will respond to this appeal as
liberally and promptly as it did in
the case of the burning of the Koman
church. Offerings may be sent to the
Treasurer of the Hawaiian Board and
will be acknowledged with your per
mission through the columns of the
Advertiser.
Yours truly,
DOREMUS SCUDDER.
