"At' the time BisniarcT Broujjlrt' Iveo
pold and the Spanish -throne so fatally
together, he deposited for Prussia a hun
dred millions of dollars in ' London, with
which to induce the insurgent Cubans
eventually to claim the assistance of Prus
sia through Leopold, and thus bring the
island under Prussian dominion. , The
object was, obviously, to provide a naval
station and -colony for ambitious Prussia
in the West indies, through whose watera
so many of. the future' leading highways
of commerce are to pass. The plan would
prove a master-stroke of policy, if it
could be carried out. Now that Prussia
is victorious in her war with ! France,
what should hinder -.the- designing Bis
marck from pushiug on with it !" France
certainly is powerless to interpose. Spain,
without France, could not very well help
herself. England has no interest even if
she dared, to say a word.' The United
States alone must resent aud resist it.
We have an a nation, again and again de
clared it would be a cause of war lor any
foreign Power to accept the transfer of
Cuba. In the case supposed, should We j
DC equally reauy io aispuie it wnu rrus
sia ? Or would the sympathy professed
for her as against France work the effect
of a concession to her desires ? Here is
a not impossible question that may yet
arise to teach us the value of keeping a
strict neutrality iu foreign wars."
THE POSSESSION OF CUBA
Has long been a cherished idea with
Bismarck. The evident object of Prus
sia s territorial acquisitions during the
last six years has been commercial ad
vantages Schleswig-Holstcin, Lubec,
Hamburg and Btemen are each and all
commercial ports, fronting on the North
Sea or the Baltic. But the seizure of
seaports alone cannot convert, an ambi
tious Power into maritime greatness.
There must also be-what England has
ever had, and what France has for a cen
tury striven to obtain foreign colonial
possessions. How to get these ?
THE GENIUS OF BISMARCK
Descried iu the grasp of decrepid, iinpe-,
cunious opain a rich, productive island
the "Gem of the Antilles" almost a con
tinent in size, of which she i liable at
any moment to be" despoiled, on one pre
text or another, by the United States, as
was proposed at the famous Ostend Con
ference of the three American Ministers,
in 1855. Laying at our very doors, this
island has always been regarded as des
tined to fall into the lapof the Republic,
and its attempted acquisition by any
European Power would be justly consid
ered as '

The Prussian navy" has become formida

by Bismarck for making peace is that a
portion of the French iron clad navy shall
be transferred to Prussia,' as in part'
indemnification for the expense of the
war.V ' -;

the one avowed purpose of re establishing

war in which the United States might

REACHING ACROSS ASIA
For a century. With that conquest,
British commercial supremacy will be
checked, and Prussia will nod no obsta
cle to her schemes of territorial and
maritime aggrandizement. It will be
remembered that King William, under
the dictation of Bismarck, replying to
the remonstances ot France, agreed that
he would withdraw Leopold not as "the
King of Prussia," but as tho "head of
the House of Ilobenzolloru." Prussia
would thus remain virtually uncommitted,
and be at liberty to pursue her .
