Henry Van Dyke, American Minis

that all Americans can ,easily find ac

LONDON. Aug. 11. Germany is so
important a factor in the work of civi
lization that even when at.war with
her we must aim finally at the con
servation of her power, to defend her
This need not discourage us in the
field. On the contrary, we shall punch
Prussia's head all the more gloriously
if we do it for honor and not for
malice. Then when we have knocked
all the militarism out of her and
taught her to respect us we can let
her ud again.
As to non-intervention, it Is merely
or, insular superstition. The leaders
of the modern labor movement knowl
that labor politics is international and
that, if militarism is to be struck
down, a mortal blow must be aimed at
Consider for a moment the mischief
already done by this peace retrench
ment reform superstition. Why was it
that Asquith and Grey did not dare
to tell the commons we had entered
into a fighting alliance with France
Solelv that they were afraid that if
they told the whole truth both the
labor members and the non-interven
tionists, as well as the anti-armament
Liberals, would have revolted and have
abandoned the Premier, and the mis
chief of all this .was that it encour
aged the continental conviction that
we would not fight. This conviction,
true enough, might have restrained
France from declaring war, if France
had wanted war. but this Is Just what
France did not want.
On tne otner hand, its effect on Ger
many must have been disastrous. Ger
many was the country that needed re
straining, and the official prevarica
tion by which the Liberal party was
duped encouraged Germany to believe
we would baek out in tne end ana
thereby precipitated Germany s des
perate rush at France.
Had our government possessed a
real modern foreign policy Asquith
might have said furiously to Prussian
'If you attempt to smash France we
two will smash you If we can. We have
had enough of the Germany of Bis
marck, which all the world loathes.
and we will see whether we cannot re
vive the Germany of Goethe and Bee
thoven, which has not an enemy on
Can it be doubted that if this had
been said resolutely, and with the vig
orous support of all sections of the
House, Potsdam would have thought
twice before declaring war? Can it
be alleged that anything could have
happened worse than has happened?
Instead of offering uermany a way
out we drove her to desperation.
