By the beginning of 1907, James Stewart Lockhart had done virtually all he could for Weihaiwei. The administration was organized on a sound footing, and with Reginald Johnston, Walter, and the cadet, Carpmael, in the Weihaiwei service, the territory had sufficient staff to ensure its smooth running. In Hong Kong, Stewart Lockhart had suffered many attacks in the Legislative and Executive Councils. Whilst awaiting his promised promotion, Stewart Lockhart continued to oversee the smooth running of Weihaiwei, believing that he would “be sent to some other place before too long”. His return to Weihaiwei in 1910 after his vacation marks the beginning of an intensification of Stewart Lockhart's interest in Chinese art. While building up his collection of paintings, he did not lessen his devotion to numismatics, and his already impressive collection of coins continued to grow.
