An Essay Written by Hobso
Merrimac Fume.
. In 1893 Lieutenant Richmond Pearson
Hobson wrote a critical ana'"' of the
"Situation and Outlook lit Europe"
among the six great powers. Tils essay
at tlie time created much Interest and
discussion among naval officers, and
. will bear reprinting at the present time,
in view of Lieutenant Hobson'a promi
nence and the trend of events since he
wrote the article. The t'nited States is
a factor with which he did not have
to reckon in fc recasting the probabfe
fate of Europe. If he were writing to
day he would talk of seven great pow
ers Instead of six.
I Europe, from the beginning of its his

j This Imminent war bids fair to In
1 volve all of the six great nations of Ku
I rope. The issues will be of a twofold
nature In determining the historic ri-
valry of the western nations and the
I equally historic Russian march toward
j ascendanc y.
j Thus Kurone now presents the spec
tacle of the dual allience of France and
Russia drawn up for aggression before
two distinct enemies, Oreat Britain and
the triple alliance of Fermany, Austria
Hungary and Italy.
What should be looked for from such
a situation In Europe? When should
war be expected? From what quarts
will It probably come, and what will be the dual alliance neglcctR to s!ze the
its probable course? The aggressor, of J opportunity of 1896, leaving events to

: being spectators to the defeat of the
power which rivals and Interferes in
their colonization and commercial en -
terprises, and which has steadily con
sidered itself self-sufficient enough to
decline all overtures from the alliance.
The probabilities thus point to the
non-interference of the triple alliance.
After the overthrow of Great Britain
and the disintegration of the triple al
liance by the withdrawal of Italy that
would follow, the contjiiest of (Jermany
and Austria-IIunRary by the armies
whose strength would remain unimpair
ed by the sea strui-'Kle, would be an
easy task, whether Italy Joined in the
courtliest or remained neutral, or even
If. as Is against all probability, she re
newed the triple alliance.
Thus the best plan for the dual alli
ance to accomplish its schemes of uni
versal conquest if to first overthrow
th? eiiiuh power bv sea. then to con
quer the central continental powers.
When will Issue probably take place?
At the time most advantageous for the
The relative strength of Great Rritaln
Is advancing by oscillations. The pres
ent moment finds It at the upper limit
of a swing. It will betrln an Immedi
ate descent; the lowest point being
reached In 1SIIC and early In 1X37.
fin the other hand, the naval strength
of both France and liussia Is on a ris
ing curve, whose rise is steady, rapid
and sure and piesents no point of in
flection. "What arc the prospects for the fu
ture? Will the dual alliance find n
more advantageous moment when it"
force will equal or preponderate that
of Its enemy? What will be the addi
tions to the strength of both parties?
What will he their relative strength
when British force pusses down from
Its present maximum to its coming ndn
linum In l-7?
The strength of the two parties In
standard tonnaget arrnoreii) will then I
tie: Great Britain, 274.040; the clunl al- !
llance, 3(17,110; 122,106 French and 141.-la
'M Husslan. Thus, though the British
force now preponderates over the force
of the dual alliance, It will witness in
ll96-7 n preponderance of the enemy
In the proportion of MM to 1. Both
preponderance In qunrtity and superl
lorlty In quality, which now belongs to
the British fleets, will pass over by
1SM-7 to the lleets of the dual alliance.
This situation will be Inevitable.
Kvery Indication points to the dual
alliance' seizing this unhappy moment
lo make the attack. It should be made
before the expiration of the treaty com
pact of the triple alliance In IHH7, In or.
der to Insure Great Britain's being left
alone. There Is no doubt that France
and Russia both appreciate the situa
tion. The non-Interference of the triple
alliance being guaranteed, the odds will
be heavily In favor of the dual alliance

remained neutral, France and r.-cti';
would offer for invasion, at the presen
moment, 1,416.000 men on the ptac
footing, and 6,630,000 on the war fojt
ing, against an opposing force of S;C
00 men on the peace footing and i 'ik't.
000 men on the war footing. This h?av;
superiority will be greater In lfc97. Th
dual alliance could march to the con
quest with entire assurance on the mor
row of British defeat.
I Italy Joined In the conquest, the
unhappy powers would be invaded fron
the south as well as from the east and
west by an adlitional force, numbering
about 2f9,000 men on the peace footing
and about 2.000,000 men on the war
footing. Should Italy, against all her
Interests, against all probability, re
main with the triple alliance, the con
quest would involve a ferce struggle
by land as well as by sea. The Inevit
able conquest of all three cpntral pow
ers would follow not many years later.
Nothing could save the continent after
the overthrow of British power by sea
The next step in the plans of the dual
alliance, the conquests beyond Furore
would be practically achieved. No seri
011s opposition could be made. They
could be taken possession of at leisure.
The day France and Russia, after Brit
ish overthrow, look up from the battle
fields of Austro-German defeat, th-y
will see their frontiers start on the
march across southeastern Europe, into
Africa, into Asia. The connueririg pow
ers would control the eastern hemi
sphere. Such are the best jdans for realizing
the highest possibilities opened up to
France and Russia by their alliance,
and the probability is that such, in the
main, are the plans they have concert,
edly adopted.
If no unforeseen event occurs, and If
at the map of history and the march
f events shows that Russian ambition
; doeH not stop short of two continents,
an,j ili not be satisfied until Russian
territory has no boundaries but oceans.
After their intoxication. France and
Italy would awaken In a nightmare.
After lkM-9, beyond which estimates
cannot be made, the probability now
points to the dual alliance maintainins
the preponderance, notwithstanding the
vast resources of Great Britain.
The future is thus gloomy for the
essentially passive powers, whether the
dual alliance has the boldness to adopt
the most favorable plan, or whether it
awaits the ordinary cours nf events,
which would probably consolidate the
enemy. Are there any method of
thwarting these plans? What can the
passive powers do?
The same methods will thwart both
plans. The surest and most desirable
the best method, would be the forma
tion of a quarirtipie aiilame f the pa:
she powers to take the offensive with,
out delay. The force of this new alli
ance would heavily preponderate; on
sen It would engulf the eoemy.
The second best method would be for
the triple alliance, though feigning de
fense, to take the offensive without de
lay. The third best method would be for
Great Britain to lake the offensive w ith
no delay. If she did so. the probabil
ity, in all events of waf that could
follow, would mark her as a victor
with an assured new lease of the sea
and of the world's commerce. Of the
three desirable methods by which th;
I war could be made general, while the
passive powers preponderate in force
and would act In unity, this on alon
offers any grounds for hope. Hut thi"
only hope is very scant, for Great Brit
ain is loath to become a belligerent in
Kuropean war. and is slow to change
her policies. She would be loath, very
loath, to take the offensive.
The fourth best method, the only om
remaining, would be the formation of
quadruple alliance, fffecied by Great
Britain's Joining the triple alliance
without materially modifying the na
ture of tile treaty stipulations. The
forces by land of the two al'lances
would not largely differ. The sllrht
preponderance would now rest with (ho
four allies. Offense, fi-nrn the agcres
slve alliance, would be out of the qucs.
(ion. Peace would be Insured for many
yeart) and another generation might
puss before the conflagre lion came.
The dual alliance, however, wou'd tint
think of renouncing Its passions and
Its schemes of conquest and a pitiless
relenUe,s peace struggle would begin
on a scale undreamed of even In (his
day of crushing armaments.
This peace struggle would continue
till Italy, Impoverished, if not utterly
bankrupt, withdiaws
At first slsht this method of postpone,
merit might appear to offer an oppor
tunity for allowing time to al-
