Chinaman As We See Him and Fifty Years of Work for Him (Asian Experience in N. Amer Ser.) by Ira M. Condit, Roger Daniels



Chinaman before us as we see him on this side of the great Pacific. He appears to us in this country at a great disadvantage. One needs to see him at home to fully appreciate him. His environment is so different here from what it is in China, that it is very difficult to judge him correctly. There are certainly bad things enough in him, whether at home or abroad, but alongside of these are many noble and com mendable qualities. At first glance the Japanese are usually considered the superior race. The contrary is, however, the. fact; and this is universally acknowledged by those who have come to know both races well. For capability, for reliability, for most of the sterling qualities which make for strength of character, the Chinese easily excel. They are a people who improve upon closer acquaintance. But China is no hothouse plant, and cannot be forced to advance as fast as we would wish. In her intense conservatism, which is really a sign of strength, she must be given time. Great bodies move slowly.
