THE WORM) POWER
Mr. Bryan brought up the subject
of world power in. his St. Patrick's
day address, and he was right In
maintaining that this nation has
been a world power for many years,
and that its strength has come from
the fundamental ideas of govern
ment planted in American soil.
Whatever the military needs or
the military policy of the country
may be, its power lies in its millions
of free citizens. The possibilities
were realized by intelligent foreign
ers even before the civil war, and
when that war put away forever the
danger of internal strife and dis
union the hopes of those who longed
to witness a failure here were shat
tered. With full play given the en
ergies and activities of the inhabi
tants, with an immense domain rich
ly endowed by nature, with the un
equaled attractions for emigrants,
with the growth that was recorded
after each decade there was no neces
sity for any peculiar demonstration
of force to" prove that the world
power had been acquired.
A foreign conflict may have em
phasized the facts and elicited com
ment that indicated a change of opin
ion abroad, but it is the facts and
not the opinions that count. It may
be interesting to know that a
Frenchman who writes for a Paris
review recognizes a strength that he
never recognized before. The revol
ution, however, is in his mind and
,not in the oountry, and, as we have
vindicated, not all foreigners have
rbeen so tardy with their recognition.
sj- .Those wiio imagine that the ex
pansion has come suddenly by a
-single stroke confuse the larger and
'the smaller expansion and give un
t due -prominence to the latter. Those
"' "who dwell most on the real sources
of the world, power have no doubts
,;and demand no demonstrations save
$ those that are occurring every day
in tthe industries of the country and
in its schools and other institutions,
, in its government of, by and for the
people. Chicago Record-Herald.

A New York mechanical engineer,
who has juct returned from a trip
abroad, in which he visited Germany,
tells an incident of his visit to the
"I was inspecting a big plant
there," he said, "and naturally I was
interested in the machinery used to
furnish power. I waa inspecting the
engine room when I saw something
which attracted me. An oil-be-grimmed
workman was on top of a
cylinder polishing some brass work,
and him I approached for information.
" 'Pardon me,' I said in my best
German, 'do you have trouble in
keeping up steam?'
"The man stopped his polishing
work and looked at me.
" 'Nix, I no understand,' he said
" 'So you are an Englishman?' I

replied. 'I'm traveling and I am new
