Nelson and Togo. By a curious coincidence England and Japan have, within the last few days, each been celebrating the victories of their res- pective naval heroes. A hundred years ago Nelson's fame rang through Europe, having secured his great victory which even according to the admis- sion of some prominent Frenchmen of to-day, led to the downfall of Napoleon and checked his designs upon our own country. Togo's achievement of recent date helped to save his country in a life and death struggle with a formidable foe. But how different were the conditions under which these two naval heroes fought, and how different were their methods. Instead of the frigate, the sloop, and the three-decker, we have the gun boat, the cruiser, and the battleship. Instead of fighting at close quarters within say a range of 1000 yards, as they did in the days of Nelson, four or even five miles is regarded as near enough for modern ships to hurl their distructive missiles at one another. Instead of sails and being dependent upon the wind and weather, we have steam, and our ships plough their way ahead whether the sea be calm without a breeze, or rough and a stiff wind blowing.
