J. H. Wade's yacht Wadena, of Cleveland, is again in New York after a voyage to Japan, where she cruised along the coast with her owners and friends aboard. The Wadena was just a year on the trip to Japan. She sailed from New York for Gibraltar June 16, 1894. From there she went to Malta, completing the run from New York to that port in seventeen days, having used 100 tons of coal. From Malta she went by way of the Suez canal to Yokohama. Mr. Wade and party had crossed to Japan by way of San Francisco.
