THE JAPANESE IN UTAH
Arrival at Salt Lake City Discontent with the Condition of the Road Japanese Etiquette with Brigham Young
SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 4.– Minister DeLong, with the Japanese Embassy, arrived here this morning, having been escorted from Ogden by a delegation of the city authorities, headed by Mayor Wells. They came by special train through, and took quarters at the Townsend House, which has been thronged ever since by the friends of the Minister and the public. Much disappointment is expressed by Mr. De Long in finding it impossible to proceed East.
He says the snow-blockade will involve the loss of millions of dollars to the trans-continental route, by diverting – through the report of the Japanese – most of the Winter travel and trade to ocean routes. The Japanese themselves are discontented by the delay, as they and Minister De Long started from California with the understanding that the road was open.
Brigham Young sent an invitation to the Embassy to call on him, but it is understood that Japanese etiquette will require Brigham to call on them first, if courtesies are to be exchanged. C. Walcott Brooks, Japanese Consul at San Francisco, accompanies the party. A number of personal friends of Mr. De Long, principally Californians and Nevadeans, are arranging for a testimonial dinner. –New York Times, Feb. 1872
