A NEW COMPETITOR.
Japan's Rapid Advance in Commercial
Business.
The remarkable advance that Ja
pan has made in the art of war is
equalled only by her progress in the
arts of peace. She has been quick to
adopt western methods and ideas
both in war and peace. The pro
gress she has made, in a compara
tively short time, in the art of war
has been demonstrated in her recent
contests on land and sea with China,
a much richer, and, in point of num
bers, more powerful nation. Already
European governments regard Japan
as a power that must be consulted in
the future in the settlement of any
questions which may affect her.
The United States has no concern
over the development of Japan as a
war power. IBut we have an interest
in her commercial development. And
while Europe looks at tile war side,
it may be interesting to us, in the
light of tariff rednctions, to give
some attention to Japan as a comnimer
cial competitor.
In 188) we exported to Japan a to
tal of $4,619,985 of merchandise, and
in 1803 a total of $3,195,494, showing
a decline in exports of $1,424,491 in
four years. In 1889 the imports
from Jalan were in value $16,687,
952, and in 1893 the aggregate was
$27,454,220, shown.g tan increase in
imports in that time of $10,756,258.
Japan increased her exports to the
United States largely each year, al
though sihe bought less of us, which
is another proof of the free tradd fal
lacy that in order to sell to a nation
we must buy fronm it.
But the chief interest-lies in the
fact that Japan is beginning to send
to the United States manufactured
articles which we might be expected
to send to her. Our imnports from
Japan last year included hats, bon
nets, paper stock, earthen, stone and
china ware, metal manufactures, silk
goods, paper, and so on.
We bought of her 63,347,834 worth
of silk manufactures, that being the
gold valua.tion in Japan. A.s the new
tariff makes a large reduction in the
duties on these goods the imports
will naturally greatly increase. That
is almost a new trade with Japan. In
1889 the imports of silk goods were
only .8780,069 in value. With this
rapid increase under the higher du
ties imposed by the McK!inley tariif,
whet may be expected under the niew
law? It is a bad outlook for Ameri
can labor in the silk mills. Linen
and cotton collars are now imported
from Japan. arnd the imports of
earthen, stone and china ware have
doubled in four years, despite the in
creased duties, and so with other
things.
Within a few years Japan has in
troduced the most improved machin
cry for manuallfacturihg purposes, and
lthis has resulted ill a mnarked im
provement in her exports. In 1884
she employed 10,000 workmen to
produce 73,500.000 pieces of pottery:
four years later 27,000,000 workmen
produced 126,,000,000 pieces. The
exlports more than doublled in that
time. Silk manufactures have been
developed in a like manner. But the
greatest progress has been made it
cotton goods. In 188-1 there were
35.000 bobbins, now there are ovel
400,000, and she consumes three
times more of raw cotton than slt,
did seven years ago.
The labor is of the kind that never
strikes, and is paid 12 cents a day fol
a ian and 6 cents for a woman. Tlht
pl:ople are inventive and artistic, an(
it is evident that they will be able tt
undersell any colnpetitor. Amnott
their new industries are watchinak
in,, rope walks, g-lass works, brew

The li.ysteric WVaterson Asks, "liave We
a Democra'tic Party?"
Louisville, Ky.. Nov. 8.-In to
day's Courier Journal, under the
head, '"I{arie We a Denlocratic
Party?" Mr. Watterson says. "Never
did a great party go to tihe people
under such handicaps as were carried
by tile democrats into the campanian
just ended. I-ard times were 1 had
enough, but they might have been
parried. Faction tights among small
claimants and rival placemen were
bad enouglh; parties have met and
overcome such obstacles before norw,
but with a record of peridy arnd dis
honor, as 3Mr. Cleveland aptly describ
ed it, to face and defend in a hand to
hanrd fight with tihe united republi
cans, led by IHarrison, McKinley and
Reed, it was disheartening for the
democrats to have to face also the
dull self-sllticierncy and stolid indif
ference of uan administratiion that
made nio sign, uttered no word, and
at least in the state of New York,
seemed to desire the defeat of tihe
regular democratic nominees.
"Thie battle for tarillf reform will
have to go down to the foot and take
ia new start. The battle over thire
money issue will soon be iupon us.
We shall see if there is democracy
enough left of tihe true blue strilpe to
imake its great coat good against all
weather, or whether we rruust still
wear a coat of mnlyll cors, coe'.l'rig
not a homogeneols party inispired by
faith and trust, but a mere bundle of
factions thrown together by tihe up
heaval of the times."

OBITUAltY NOTICE.
The funeral of Paris Aslheraft,
whose death occurred last Friday
evening, at' 7:50 o'clock. took place
from the MI. E. clhurch on Monida a.
in. at 70:30 o'clock, RIev. Cause, as
sistedl by Rev. Keesey, conducted the
obsequies at t he church, and the bur
ial services at the grave were pro
nounced by 1Hev. homer C. Ashcrafl,
brotter of the deceascid.
Followving we p-rint an obituary,
which was read as part iof' the obse
luies:
Paris Wilsun Asheriaftf youngest
son iby the niarriai; e of Hlenry iu3nrges
Ashe'raft and Maregaret Ellen Silvey,
was born i r l ourbon towvnship, Mar
shall county, In(., April 30, 1867.
At the age of less tlhan five years his
father died, leaving hitm with no
hand, exceplting that of a mother,
eithler to guide or to warn. Ilis boy
hiood was spent on the farm, where,
in a htinmble luhome and under the
pruidelnt direction of a thoughtful
nothler, lie learned his first lessons
in fruality aniid industry. From his
chalsing' (f the insect and the squirrel
at his rural hliiiie in boyhoed, even to
lis intellectual pursuits in later life,
he displayed an indomitable energy
whiich was defeated only b)y his ulti
mate infliction. Ills first sclh.ling
was received at the district, schools,
and in ibohood he devoted himself
to farm labor ] ill suniner i ll d to at
tendinl school in winter, until lie
was linallyv igraduated froml the South
Whitley public schools, May 1, 1888.
In Septembler of that year lie entered
Fort Wayne College. paying his way
partly frolm hlis own resllources and
partly 1by the aid of his honored and
inteil cId stlep-father, 'Mr. Frederick
