U.S. Recognition of the Chinese Republic / Cartoons Magazine Centennial 1913

WARNING: The below posting includes racist imagery

With Mainland China’s President Xi Jinping, today in the U.S. and meeting with President Obama, we look back one hundred years ago to the June 1913 issue of Cartoons Magazine, whose front cover (above, with cartoon by Phil Porter) and 3-page article (further down below) involve the U.S. recognizing the Chinese Republic (more a military government, which removed power from China’s last Emperor, Puyi, keeping him confined to the Forbidden City).

Beneath, by Bronstrup, from the March 1913 edition of Cartoons Magazine, “Still Waiting” — Puyi was removed from power in February 1912, and in 1913, the Chinese Republic was still waiting for diplomatic recognition.

Click on the above & below pictures, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.

WARNING: The below article includes racist imagery

While the cartoons that Cartoons Magazine‘s editors decided to show with its article on the 1913 U.S. recognition of China, unfortunately are racist, the article itself is not. It discusses how European Colonial powers — still withholding recognition — were trying to extort from China the kinds of concession Europe was used to stealing at gunpoint.
