Washington, July VU. General

may go to Santo Domingo, gather nn

tho black ropuhllc, loft vacant by tho
assassination of Ullsscs Hourcaux.
Some time ngo General Gomez Issued
a manifesto to tho Cuban nrmy, In

fight his way to tho presidency.
Gomez is n good organizer, and those

New Youk, July 20. General Abe-
lardo A. Moseoso, an exiled leader of I
the Wbpral party of Santo Domingo,
now living in Now York, said last 1
night: "The death of President Heu-
reaux will, I think, surely be followed
by a long state of disorder and revo
lution. I want to omphaslzo this
prophecy that tho United States
will eventually be compelled to Inter
fere to establish peace in the Island,
just as this country did in Cuba.
There are now in this country Goncral
Torlbco Garcia and Edward Grullon,
who sharo my views. Wo think that '
the United States ought to tako an in
terest in our West Indian republic.
It will bo a great commercial ally. It
lies between Cuba and Porto Rico. It

General Moicoso has been an exile

and had to floe to save his Ufa Presi

treaty with Santo Domingo, but the
Senate defeated it.

Domingo Improvement company,
which ojntrols the country's finances,
said yesterday: "Should the new ad
ministration attempt to repudiate' our
contracts we shall certainly, as Amor
can citizens, call upon the Washing
ton administration for protection. I
do not believe there will ba any revo

company was signed by President
Hourcaux in 1803. It gives to the
cgmpany the railroads and the right
to collect the customs. In return for
these concessions the company has as

A "Dog-la-the-Maimer" Policy Aicrlbed
to the Kalaar Continental Alliance
to Attack KiiRland Pint and Tlien
Nitw Yoiuc, July 31. Tho New
York Herald prints a cablegram
from Trclste, Austrlu, this morning,
in which Admiral Dewey is quoted as
saying: '"Our next war will bo with
Germany." Tho dispatch follows:
"I had a conversation with Admiral
Dowoy on board tho Olympin yester
day. In reply to a remark suggesting
that Germany had Intended to inter
fere nt Manila the admiral said:
"Yes. Prlnco Henry of Prussia Is
n man of tho type of his brother, tho

"Ho was relieved from Manila In
accordance with an arrangement of
long standing, nnd becauso his ttme

ernment. "Germany's policy Is to prevent
other powers from obtaining what
she cannot acquire herself."
After wo had spoken of Samoa as
nn evidence of tho German policy, the
admlrnt Bald: "Wo need n largo and
thoroughly equipped navy that can
copo with nny other power on earth.
Eugland is our natural ally nt this
time, and differences such us thoso

"Our noxt war will be with Ger
many." London, July 31. Tho National Re
vlow, in an articlo discussing the
probability of nn allianco between
Franco nnd Germany against England
has reached the conclusion that such
a move Is within the bounds of prac
tical politics. Tho writer points out
that Germany's future expansion must
bo colonial and that Franco has sim
ilar interests. In this respect both
France and Germany nro somewhat
barred by England's widespread hold
ings. The common belief that Eng
land is tho enemy of every power with
colonial or maritime ambitions, ,tho
writer asserts, supplies both French
men and Gcrmnns with an argument
in support of the union.
Emperor William, is is argued, Is
acting upon the supposition that,
much as Franco dislikes Germany,
sho must dlsllko England more after
tho Fashoda incldeut Tho emperor
dreams of forming a coalition of cen
tral and western powers of the conti
nent, to bo used, firstly, against Eng
land: secondly, against tho United
States and, finally, against Russin,
though nt the beginning tho latter
power will be Included in the German
firm. Tho National Review writer
finds in theso dreams an explanation
of tho hitherto nlmost inexplicable
policy of tho German emperor to
wards the United States. Tho article
"The reason for Emperor William's
seeming desire to unnecessarily quar
rel with a state of such gigantic
strengtli is that he wished to assume
the position, of champion of Europe
against transmarine powers."
Tho article says further: "To the
continent, before 1898, tho United
States appeared a huge, drowsy mon
ster that spent Its energy in rare mo
monts of wakefulness in nibbling the
lion's tall. No ono objected much
to this, but when the hugo beast
shook itself and planted one paw upon
the Spanish West Indies and another
upon tho Philippines it became an
objcot of real terror to European
statesmen who did not know whom it
might next attack. The conditions
wero all tho more unnerving ns Eng
land refused to walk into tho trap
and turn her navy against the United
States. So tho events of 1808 only

"The military arm of our govern

from that of other nations. We do

of '70. Of their own will they took up
arms in the cause of human liberty,
and having wrested from the mother
country by their bravery nnd sacrifice
the right to establish n government
nnd show to the world a new flog,
they laid down their arms and took up
the task of building that government
and of making that flag the standard
of power as it wus the emblem of free
dom. Again in 1812 our fathers left
the peaceful walks of citizenship and
taught England a proper respect for
the 1 ights of the young republic on
tho high seas.
"The mighty armies which engaged
in that awful struggle in '61- and 'l!i
on both sides were volunteer soldiers
and all Americans. No such conflict
had ever before been witnessed. The
conflict ended, the government of
Washington sustained, the eternal
principles of the Declaration of Inde

without distinction of color or condi

glorious emblem of liberty, those
great armies disbanded and took up
the peaceful pursuit of citizenship. All
history records no bravei" or grander
army cndurlug the hardships of camp
and field, nor Letter citizens returning
to the walks of private life. It has
ever been the. boast of our republic
that in times of war every citizen is a
soldier; in times of peace every soldier
is a citizen. Our government Is found
