Hence the recent Shanghai incident.
China is mi enormous nation occupying
nu'etioriuous country, just now in ,i state
of dissolution or reconstruction no one
enn tell which. The various nations with
vnrious interests look ti'xm its territory
with longing eyes, but it does not seem
best, with the interests or all considered,
that it .should lie dlsmemliercil. It np
pears to Ih- best for the interests of nil
the other nations of the world that it
should be aided rather than divided.
This course has been decided upon by the
leading nations of the world, following
the suggestion mnl with the assistance of
the prcsPtit 1'cptihllcuu administration of
this country. This attitude is certainly
right morally, mul, In the long run. must

because of the helplessness of China, vast

Itusine-s is business. We have taken
into our hands the management of the
Pacini: Ocean and wc nre quite capable
or retaining that management under any
circumstances. I'poti our retention of it

welfare. We are the great producers
of n new land a vast continent yct iu
its infancy, and our welfare must year

we export. We have ex'tortcd to Kttrope

almost to its utmost; now we purpose
to export ueross the Pad tie and supply

I'poti the realization of this great indus

must largely depend, iu the future, thf
commercial welfare of the American peo
