The United States Consul at Yokohama
Japan has sent to the State
a circular issued by Baron Kentaro
Kincko the President of the American
Association of Japan and the Japanese
Minister of Justice relative to a i ropo
sltion to erect a monument to the mtmorj
of Commodore Perrj V S N at Kuri
hama It Is suggested that the monument
should commenorate the arrival ot Com
modore Perry at that place forty lght
j ears ago when he came as the merican
envoy for the purpose of conducting the
first treaty of commerce and friendly in
tercourse between the United States rnd
The circular is lis follows
Fort j -eight jears ngo on the th of
July in the Cth ear of Kojel an Ameri
can envoy arrived In Japan on a mission
which wis destined to become an epoch-
making event in the history of Japan
This envoy was none other than Commo
dore Perry U S N who by order of the
President of the North American Repub
lic came to this country for the purinise
of concluding a treaty of commerce and
friendly intercourse between the two na
tions On the 11th of the month above
mentioned the envoy landed at Kurl
hamn Mlura gorl In tne province of Sag
ami and there held conferences repeated
ly with the utllclals of the Toktigawa Re
gency The object of his mission success
fully accomplished the commodore bulled
home shortly after
This visit of Commodore Perry was in
a vord the turning of the key which
opened the doors of tlie Japanese Empire
to friendly Intercourse with the United
States and subsequently to the rest of
the nations of Europe on similar terms
and may in truth be regarded as the
most memorable event In our annals an
event which paved the way for and ac
celerated the introduction of anew order
of things an event that enabled the coun
try to enter upon the unprecedented era
of national ascendency In which we are
now living There is a reason then a
strong reason that this visit of jCommo
dore Perry no less than the spot where
those memorable conferences took place
should be perpetuated in the nemorj of
the Japanese people
True Japan has not forgotten nor will
she ev er forget that next to her reigning
and most beloved sovereign whose high
virtues and great wisdom are above all
praise she owes In no small degree her
present prosnerity to the United States
of America In that the latter rendered
her the great and lasting service already
referred to After the lapse ot these forty-eight
years her people have however
come to cntertnln but an uncertain mem
ory of Kurlhama and yet I was there
that Commodore Perry flrsL Uod on the
soil of Japan and for the first time awoke
the country from a slumberous seclusion
of three centuries there it was where
first gleamed the light that has ever since
illumined Japans way In 1it new career
of progress Even writers seldom men
ticn the place now and the spot where
the American envoy landed and which
should forever be remembered In our his
torj threatens to be forgotten altogether
Last fall we had the pleasure of meet
ing Rear Admiral Bcardslee United
States Navy who as a naval cadet and
a member of the crew- under Commodore
Perry landed at Kurlhama on the his
torical occasion and who after theso
fort -eight ears once more came back
to pa a visit to this country Beckoned
by the memories of the past the admiral
went to Kurlhama Immediately after his
arrival in Japan but he was only able
to ascertain the snot where the envoy
and his party had landed almost half a
century ago by the help of an old sur
vivor of those by gone davs We were
greatly moved by his account of his sec
ond visit to Kurlhama and we Immedi
ately set on foot a movement to erect a
fitting monument which may perpetuate
the place In fiuestlon in the memory of
our posterity We have since made such
progress with this movement that a site
for tne monument has already been se
lected It is our determination to accom
plish the end in view with all possible
promptitude and to hold the ceremony
of unveiling the monument on the com
ing anniversary of the landing of the
American envoy at Kurlhama the 1Kb of
July this j car We hope that those who
are Interested In the matter vvlll favor
us by endorsing our undertaking In a
substantial manner

that of St Mary Countj Tho special

heads of the families at the various coun

In some Instances regular routes were
followed the agents ami It will be com
paratively easy for thu Investigators to

In the held long enough to start the work
of investigation
Some of the districts In Anne Arundel
Count are large one Of them contain

a sufficient force has already been sent
to the various points where fraud is sus
