PRESENT DAY THOUGHTS.
4 11V "NKMO." J
I (CopywrlRlilcJ by Dawo ATnhor.)
If three years iicn a proiihut had fore
told that during 1893, lu a period of
eight weokH.tlioaiitagonlsin and distrust
of a century and 11 quarter toward Kng
land would disappear ,ho would have
been hooted at as 11 pronliot of lies. Yet
on tho surface this change of feeling
appears lo have taken place. Hut as
some of the present ino.st vigorous ex
poundorsof an Anglo-American alliance
were Hie most darinc "twisters of the
lion's tail" during the Venezuela bound
ary scare, their conversion would seem
to bo almost too sudden to be lasting. In
fact, those who have tho fullest belief in
tlio destiny of English-speaking people,
mny bopardoned for regarding much of
the present fooling as whimsical and tin
Lot us see what is proposed now that
tho first vague thoughtd roenrdintr the
alliance take form in print and in discus
sion. First and foremost it is to bo of.
fonsivo and defensive; or in other
words, mi injury inflicted on ono bv an
outsider is to bo felt by both and resent
ed by both. Souio of tho subordinato
elements would bo Tho united comple
tion of tiioNicarnnna canal: intcrclfauco
of coaling courtesies at tho various
naval stations; cortain tariff reforms
in relation to both Canada and Great
Britain; mutual citizenship; anc some
vMw .vi..M.bo ,un uiu 31 mi niv in
choate to record.
It would bo rashness itself to con
demn any ono of theso features, yet
each by itsolf and all together nro too
far advanced upon recent bias and dis
trust to bo anything but temporary nud
unsatisfactory. Tho wholo thing pic
tures itself to the mind like the hasty
marriage of passionate minors, who
only begin to realizo too la to that thoro
are more obligations than begetting in
the united statu. Then comes the
hind-sight that is such an unsatisfac
tory substitute for fore-sight; the awak
ened understanding leads to misunder
standing; tho bonds grow irksome; and
then a blank. Even a condensed view
of the possibilities of the alliance will,
I feel sure, prompt future caution in
relation to it.
An offensive and defensive alliance
would be tho issuance of a challenge to
the other nations of tho world. We
should say in effect "Tho Emrlish sneak.
ors are strongor than you all. Our
view or civilization is to bo the vlow."
In doing so wo sh juld bo doinir n rank
lnju8tico to those nations who have
given of their substnnco to mako us
what wo nro. Wo should thus bolittlo
tho converging strenms of civilization
that havo conio to us from tho Latin
rnces, and tho Teutons nnd tho Slavs,
and bo in tho position of kicking from
undor us tho laddir by which wo havo
risen. There is no reason, savo that of
blind haste, why wo should suddenly
turn upon tho great historic friondli
ness of Russia and of Franco ami placo
ourselves in the touch-mo-if-you-daro
attltudo of pot-houso quarrollers.
Tho proposed alliance would bo tho
most deiinito declaration to tho world
that hereafter wo Intend to take a light
ing sharo in all the international com
plications that nfllict tho world with
huge standing armies aud bankrupt
Though my lonjr.timo readers urn
fully aware that 1 am tho last to favor
siavisn aauereneo to the past and its
traditions; yet at this tlmo it is not m.
appropriate to remind ourselves that
tlio devoted mon who bowed us in m,
rough before over wo woro a nation,
expressly warned us nguinst such an
ontnugloniont. In acquiring or con
trolling territory outsido of our com
pact empire of Freedom, wo shnll uij.
doubtodly depart from tho straight
patli our ancestors sot beforo us, but
this divergence mint not bo mailo to us
sumo to our minds confused by tho
rapidity of events a Justification for so
( tromondous a divorgeuco as tho lean-
ing on the unniiimmts of another for
our luotcotion and perpetuation. Are
wo reaily for so marked a departure?
I should itiiMgine the answer would bo
a great, resounding "No;" as loud as
the historic "Yes" that started us on
our presont errand of help to the abused
It will bo no.ed that there has in this
column thus far been neither abuse nor
praise for Great Hritaln. Tho accept
ance or rejection of the proposed alliance-is
not' id bo based upon hatred or
lovo of that! great nation. Her tri
umphs or her failures, her strength ot
her daiigors, have or should havo no
deciding weight. Our only point of
view must bo a sollish ono in tho
highest sonso of solllshnosa. Tho de
ciding question will therefore bo as to
whether tho moral leadership wo hold
;mong tho nations a leadership mag-
niliedn hundred fol.l by tho unselfish
motive that first swayed us in the pres
ent war will gain by a return to faith
in force as an international regulator.
As an evidence heretofore reposed in
us by tho nations of the earth, whoso
slnowa havo been incorporated in our
strength by thu flockinc hither of sons
and daughters, wo can as a nation point
with prido to tho foot that in about 100
