THE CITIZEN, FRIDAY, JUNE 20, 1913.
BY JUBILEE GAYETY
Indisposition Slight; Thousands
In Berlin Streets,
Berlin, June 18. Exhnpsted by tho
strain of the emperor's celebration of
his twenty-five years of peaceful reign,
following closely the wedding of her
daughter, the German empress was
forced to remain nway from all tho
ceremonies of the celebration. She
was overcome In the middle of the gala
opera performance and had to with
draw from the royal box. It Is said
that her indisposition is slight and that
rest for a few days will restore her.
Tho Crown Princess Cecllle will take,
her mother-lu-lnw's place at tho cere
monies yet to be held. She represented
tho empress last night at the stato din
ner given at the castle.
Splendid weather prevailed hero, and
the stroets wore thronged. The pro
gram began with a review by tho em
peror of a parade of about 10,000 men
belonging to the various trades unions,
with hundreds of floats emblematic of
tho different trades. This was followed
by the state processions of the German
rulers to the castle, and there was a
huge torchlight procession by tho stu
dents of the University of Berlin.
Most of tho rulers arrived In Berlin
and gave tho sons of the emperor a
busy session in receiving them at tho
The prince regent of Bavaria, acting
as spokesman at Hilar hall, said tho
emperor as director of the foreign pol
icy of tho German empire, had shown
himself to bo an upholder of peace and
at the same time an upbullder of tho
empire's might, which was tho safest
guarantee of honorable peace. Ho
praised him as the creator by hi3 per
sonal initiative of the German navy.
The emperor was then presented by
the prlnco regent with a table center
piece in the shape of a ship in massive
silver as an emblem of the unity of tho
TAMED THE MONARCH.
The Part a Silver Inkstand Played In
a National Crisis,
Tho pages of history record many in
stances in which trivial incidents havo
shaped tho destinies of nations. Ac
cording to a story in the New York
Tribune, a small silver Inkstand and
tho quick wit of a prime minister once
played an important part in tho history
of the Netherlands.
William III., king of the Netherlands,
was a man of violent and ungovernable
temper. Although In general a clever
statesman, ho was inclined, for some
reason or other, to involve Holland in
tho trouble that was brewing between
Franco and Germany in 1870. lie was
deaf to the appeals of Ills ministers,
who foresaw the ruin to the country
that war would bring.
Thorbecke, the prime minister, re
solved to mako one last attempt to
change his soverign's resolution. On
entering tho royal presence Thorbecke
was greeted with a rough "Good morn.
ingl What's tho news?"
"Nothing particular, your majesty,
Only tho people of The Ilague are talk'
ing a great deal of nonsense about your
"About me!" exclaimed the monarch,
In wrath. "What do they say about
"Well, sir," answered tho old states
man, "Tho Ilaguers declaro that your
majesty has become stark, staring
mad!" Before ho could utter another
word King William, his faco purple
with fury, jumped up and .seized a
heavy silver inkstand, with tho inten
tion of hurling it at tho head of tho
premier. Fortunately a projecting an
glo of tho inkstand caught in the table
cloth and dragged It off tho table with
everything upon it In tho confusion
tho discharge of tho missllo was delay
ed for a moment.
"Sire," exclaimed Thorbecke quietly,
"if your majesty hurls that beautiful
inkstand at my head The Ilaguers will
have much reason for their assertion!"
For a mlnuto tho angry king gazed In
silence at his minister. Then he grad
ually lowered his arm and replaced the
Inkstand on tho table. Ho walked to
one of tho windows and stood looking
out for a fow minutes. Returning to
tho table, ho resumed his seat and
said, as if nothing had happened:
"And now tell 1110 what you have got
An hour later, when tho statesman
left, he carried with him tho monarch's
promise to issue n proclamation that
would declaro the neutrality of Hoi

TIIE recent news of the serious ill
ness of Yoshlhito, emperor of Ja
pan, was a surprise not only to
the western worm, DUt to uie
inhabitants of tho mikado's own realm.
Not until his condition became so
grave that nearly a dozen of tho court
physicians were in attendance did tho
public, even the citizens of Tokyo,
know the mikado was indisposed.
Their first knowledge of the emperor's
illness was conveyed by an official
Tho bulletin, signed by eight of the
court physicians, was In these terms:
. "Tho emperor, who had been suffer
ing from a slight cold, developed to
day inflammation of tho lungs. We
do not consider his condtion justifies
anxiety, but his temperature is high."
This announcement came as n great
shock to the loyal inhabitants of the
capital, who had known only that his
majesty caught a slight cold while at
tending a military review at Aoyama
parade ground May 18.
All of the papers of Tokyo issued ex
tras chronicling tho news of his ma
jesty's llness, and groat depression
was visible everywhere.
Tho news created tho greatest con
sternation in view of the great ques
tions of state soon to be disposed of,
especially tho nttltude Japan is to take
toward the United States in regard to
the California alien land law trouble.
"What if the emperor should die!"
was tho exclamation of officials at To-
YOSIUIIITO IN HOBES OP BTATE.J
kyo, according to cablegrams, on learn
ing that the mikado had Inflammation
of tho lungs nnd was in a critical con
dition. The officials knew that the emperor
had been frail from infancy and that
nny serious Illness might end his life.
Lungs Always Weak.
While Yoshlhito was still a child tho
court physicians observed that his
lungs were weak, and while ho was
still tho crown prince camo many re
ports to the effect that ho might not
live to occupy tho throne.
Yoshlhlto's accession to the throne of
Japan took place July 30, 1012, but tho
formal coronation ceremonies were
postponed until tho official term of
court mourning for tho Emperor Mut
suhito should end, late In 1013.
Yosbihlto Ilarunomlya, the one hun
dred nnd twenty-third male successor to
tho Imperial throno of Japan, was born
Aug. 31, 1870. On his eighth birthday
ho was nominated heir apparent, be
ing the third son of the Princess Ynnl
gawara, 0110 of tho eight princesses of
noble blood who became members of
tho household of Mutsuhito when It
was seen that no heir was to bo ex
pected of Princess Hnruko, Matsu
hito's wlfo and empress.
The two older brothers of Yosbihlto
died soon after birth.
On being nominated heir apparent
Yosbihlto received tho decoration of
tho Grand Order of Merit and a com
mission as a colonel in the Imperial
Royal guards. Ills education was se
cured at tho school for members of tho
imperial family at Tokyo and com-,
prised modern training as well ns that
of tho old Jopaneso studies, including
English, French and German.
In 1000 ho married Princess Sada, his
cousin, a daughter of Princo Kujo.
Iler family Is one of tho oldest in tho
empire and is cosily traced back to 030
Tho first of tho imperial couplo's
threo children tho Pjinces Michl, Atsu
And Teru was tho first son to have
been born either to an empress or a
crown princess of Japan In many gen
erations. Upon being elevated to tho throno
tho Emperor Yoshlhito began upsetting
traditions and breaking precedents
With a view to making Japan modern
In every possible senso of tho Tvord.
The Emperor Mutsuhito lived much
in seclusion. He passed tho first six
teen years of life unseen by any for
His Health In Childhood Was I
Not Good, but He Improved
It by Outdoor Life. I
eigner, unseen by nny but his personal
attendants, who were of his .family.
In conference even with tho greatest
of those who served him his face was
never shown, for he sat hidden within
n canopy on tho low throno platform
from which his orders came. Till six
teen years of age ho had never walked,
and tho art of walking was with him a
stiff and harsh practice to the end.
It must not bo Inferred, however,
that Japan's progress was slow during
tho reign of Mutsuhito. In fact. It
will be recalled that tho opposite was
Tho occidental influence was every
where seen, and a great era of chango
camo upon tho empire.
A Democratic Prince.
Yoshlhlto's life in its earliest years
reflected the changed condition of Jn
pan. Ho was brought up democratic
ally and attended school in the Collego
of rcers, which Is intended for the ed
ucation of princes nnd nobles, but
which is open to all.
Ilero ho worked with tho rest, pos
sessing no privileges unpossessed by
the most obscure and with a punctual
ity Insisted upon from even him, tho
descendant of the gods.
In this way came the comparative
development of his social Instincts and
his preference for talking directly with
his company than through tho august
intermediary of court officialdom.
Later, howovor, he camo under tho
care of a tutor, General Oku, who was
assisted by a Mr. Adacbl, who seems
to have been linguistically Inclined.
From General Oku ho also studied
military tactics and early proved that
In Japan royalty is something of a tal
isman. At thirteen ho was a lieuten
ant, at sixteen colonel of tho army.
In these early years from our west
ern viewpoint he lived a life of re
markable Independence of parental
control. Ho occupied, almost from in
fancy, a palace of his own not, how
ever, distant from tho emperor's and
within that park which could com
fortably accommodate tho Vatican nnd
Central park and be sublimely uucon
sclous of the assimilation.
This, under tho charge of a cham
berlain and threo assistants and at a
yearly expense of 50,000 yon, was his
home throughout his years of school
ing and early manhood, and It con
tained everything that even a crown
prlnco of Japan should have.
It camo perilously near tho luxuries
offered by nny ocean liner. The small
and weakly princo had his gymnasium,
his bowling alley, his tennis and arch
cry courts, his stables, his riding pa
vilion, his fishing ponds.
And these developed In him an out
door taste which gave him, if not rug
ged, at least normal health, nero
his youth was spent .In the society
mostly of royal relatives tho Japa
nese examples of his sisters and his
cousins and his aunts.
In the seclusion of his palace also
Yoshlhito developed a keen attachment
for versification, which even in mod
ern Japan Is deemed one of the most
Important accomplishments in court
circles, writing both in Japanese and
Chinese, tho last activity correspond'
ing with that Latin verso which It was
tho Joy of English scholars in other
times to compose.
A Modern Palace.
In 1000, when Yoshlhlto's threo
story palace was built at a cost of
$300,000, it was European rather than
Japanese in character. It was modern
both in design and in equipment
A strango contrast Is afforded by
the Imperial palace, where Mutushlto
lived. Hero tho note is Japanese, in-
congruously blended with tho mechan
ical dovlces of tho Occident, long nnd
low as its labyrinths of buildings, nnd
it is chiefly remarkablo for its covered
passages and Its covered courts.
Tho architecture Is of tho ancient
Japaneso style, with high roofs at
sharp angles nnd heavy gray tiles. No
whisper of tho European speaks there.
Inside are walls of plate glass and
lacquer, which, rolled aside, open up
vlstns of tremendous rooms.
Generally hero visitors are impressed
with the triumph of Japaneso simplic
ity which characterizes It, though,
strangely enough, tho imperial apart
ments are furnished with French rose
wood furniture nnd rugs in tho Euro
pean style. Mutsuhito invariably nto
at table and with those ever widening
influences, knives nnd forks.
Throughout the palace, too, ono finds,
even In a medieval environment, elec
tric lights, In tho mystic covered court
yards, in tho fascinating connecting
passages which go up nnd down nnd,
necessarily, In tho very Frenchy mod
ern dining room Itself.
But in tho emperor's suit, in tho
midst of tho many indications of west
ern ways, in smoking rooms, libraries,
billiard rooms, dressing rooms, stands
ono incongruity which seems insen
sibly to creep into the blended civiliza
tion of tho Japanese.
It is tho Imperial bedroom, plain to
barrenness in its Japaneso style, un
Tentllntcd, dark, wlndowless nnd sur
rounded on every side by tho rooms of
the emperor's personal bodyguard. It
s indeed in the heart of the palace.
