PRESENT DAY THOUGHTS.'
J 1IY l. OHOiVKNOIl PAWK.
4 (CopywrlKlitcil by Pawp ATnbor.)
In doing further combat with tho
present earnest demand for a perma
nent nud decided increase of both army
and navy, it Is necessary to consider
the probability offoreign intotforenco
in relation to tho now Islands and
archipelagos that aro to booms. As
presout hostilities will not last long, it
Is well for us to fortify our minds iu
advance regarding tho matter, Binco
every possible and impossible and rot
rogiessivo argument will bo brought
forth In order to Impel us Into enor
mous oxponditures for arms and thips
In tho first placo wo can safely dis
miss' from tho discussions all fears of
attack by any ono of the .minor powers
of tho world. In a manner free from
boasting wo can properly say that uo
such power is courting nnlhllatlon,
nor aro the conditions that have
brought us into conflict with a sovonth
rato power over likely to bo ropoatod.
Thoroforo tho only remaining powers
that are worthy ot consideration in
Europe aro England, Franco, Gorniany,
and Russia, and in Asia Japan, and
that not for twonty-flvo yoara at least.
Thosothon that demanded from our
puissant nation a return to the -weak
ness of force must bo relentlessly nar
rowed down to the real limits of tho
danger viz: that none but great pow
era will dare any filching from us; and
that tbo foar of filching is the only ex
cuso for tho proposed increase; for our
original territory remains as ocean-bulwarked
If woassumonowthoaccuraoyof last
wook's thoughts as to tho possibility of
administering by justioo Instead of by
forco, it shall bo further shown that tho
groat powers from a varloty of causes
nro littlo likoly to moddlo with us.
Thus will It bo possible for us, with
safety, aftor present hostilities havo
ceased to return to our skeleton army,
and simply sustain our navy in its
former condition of extraordinary of
ticiency. Add to this a considerable
reformation of militia methods so that
in futuro tho time ot neod will not bo
such a timo of confusion; also a forma
tion for local purposes of o few regi
ments of native constabulary: and we
shall havo demonstrated to tbe world
just what is tho true greatness of a
groat nation whoso ideals are moral in
stead of physical and whose wars aro
on moral issues, if any.
As to Russia. Tint, most populous of
nations has tho gicatcst debt (14.8 of
tho total national wealth) least wealth
por capita, and tho most ignorant pop
ulation of all tho great nations of tho
earth. These aro a tow superlatives
that aro quite tinon viable, and not ex
actly suited for producing ngood, fight
ing army. Furthormoro tho father of
tho presout czar (who imitates him) was
far-sighted enough to seo that his duty
to his tremendous territory from At
luntio to Pacific eastward, was to de
velop it internally and stay out of in
ternational squabbles unless thoy af
fected his main design. And ho needs
to do this, for while his population is
thirty million moro than ours, his iron
and steel productions aro thirteen
times less than ours, his coal fields aro
only 27,000 squaro miles against our
104,000. Further ho has but one trans
continental railroad and thatincotrf
ploto as a main lino and largely lack
ing as to feeders.
As to Gcmany. At tho very outsot
taking this nation's own fighting ef
ficiency, which, with first and socond
reserves, amounts to nino por cont of
tho wholo population, or 4,700,000 In
all, thoro is no reason to suppose that
our own nation would fall to produce
a similar percentage if need bo, or
0,300,000 in all. Germany too would
bo 8000 miles fiom a baso in attacking
us hero and many moro thousands
from a good base if attacking our in
terests iu tint Pacific, Hot-headed
though her empoior may bo and anx
ious to whet tho uword of a real, living,
dlvine-rlght war lord, n modicum of
good sniiso will testraln him from nt-
tempting any save taiilT leprisals
against a nation that excels him ,in all
that makes for an enduring fight
though behind him In Instantaneous
As to Franco. Hor debt per capita
Is within ono tenth of ono por cent of
that of Russia; her total agiicttltural
productions aro ono third loss than
ours, her coal fields aro trifling, and
hor possible high limit army is on tho
0 por cent basis of Germany, 8,000,000
less than ours. But most notablo of all
her drawbacks, which in tho main, as
to distance, etc., resomblo thoso ot
Germany, in that she is lacking in ay
clearly defined, well-sustained national
policy, such as characterizes Russia,
Gormany and England. She is tho or
rntic, impulsive comet of European
politics and Is woll preoccupied in
dodging horo, thoro and yon tho zonos
of travel ot tho other groat constella
tions. Sho would bavo everything to
loso ultimately and nothing to gain by
attempting nn assault upon us oven at
our veakost outpost.
As V) England. She is restricted by a
hereditary relationship, nnd a moral ro
tationship also that involvo tho duty of
maintaining on tho earth tho hard
gained rights of tho individual man,
froedom of speech and thought and ac
tion, and a common horitago of law
and government. Sho la never likely
thoroforo to drift into a fight with us;
but, if our oyca aro open to interna
tional light, more than likely to como
iuto elosor rolations with us for tho
sako of thoso things that aro most
hopeful and most progressive in tho
world's life. As to our now colonial
possessions, sho welcomes, indeed, for
reasons of state, a stitToning cordon of
English-speaking administrations tho
As to All. Anxious regarding fron
tiers nnd with a wound still running
lifter twonty-sovon years, France could
not join with Gormany against us, but
must of necessity opposo her. Gor
many might join with Russia but would
place Franco and England with us. So
envious, howovor, aro tboy all of Eng
land, that an attack upon us by her
would givo us moro allies than we
This is not a ilippcnt disposal of a
great question. Wo have progressed
boyond tbo timo when nations waltz
into war to tunes played by royal fid
dlers. Thoro is no great nation so in
sano as to siozo an outlaying piece of
territory belonging to soma other na
tion, unless confident of being ablo to
hold It. Ablfigurcs will demonstrate if
my readers will rake tho timo for inde
pendent investigation, no groat nation
on tho face of tho earth will attempt to
steal from ono so strong In tho poten
tials of war ns wo, and it is thoroforo
onlyj childish and unrotloctivo droad
that will imptl us to dopart from our
old policy of an exceedingly moderate
amiy and navy.
