too civilized America. Japan is to-day
in ii hoiiho what America was IKty years
ago very fow largo fortunes uud little
dcgiudlng poverty.
Hutiiflcrull that .Mr. Carienter tells us
no admirably about "Stores and Trade In
Japan," It Is Htrango that ho should warn
Usui u nation that wo cannot compote
with Japan. Ah 11 newspaper correspond
ent .Mr. Carpenter Is on tho sinface,
"At," but as u political economist ho
uiiihl bo dun n near M, or he would not
warn this great big Amerle.ui titilllver
against the attacks of tlicce Lilliputian

iiiiltM of navigable lakes and bays, with
tlio mineral, timber and agricultural re
Mouices, of which wo bo.iht hi much, need
Imj afraid of a nation with half tho impu

engine uud tho railway, and employs
human uuisclu as a medio (Kiwer to pull
drays lu the streets and run tho "teels of

may entertain u whoesomu fear, but to
bo afraid of a ImIki lu swaddling clothes
kco'iis to mo to bo tho iiultttoxonco of
cowardice uud tho urine of lolly. Hut wo
nio told (after having demonstrated that
wages in Japan tiro higher than in Am

Japan uud tho other Asiatic nations Ii
they over begin inaiitifactiiilug, by further
reiiiiciions in uio wages 01 (lie American
