A WAR WITH GERMANY.
Of all the possibilities suggested
"by out war with Spain, perhaps the
possibility of a war with Germany
growing out of it is the most pre
posterous, says the New York World.
By the constitution of the German
empire, the emporer is not in Ger
many. While the emperor can de
dare war if defensive, to declare war
if not merely defensive he must have
the consent of the Bundesrath or
Federal Council. The fifty-eight
members of this body are appointed
by the governments of the respective
states of the empire, Prussia's seven
teen members beinjf outnumbered by
the delegations of the three king
doms of Bavaria, Saxony and Wur
temberg, with the grand duchies of
Baden and Hesse, or by the twenty
one members from the smaller politi
cal divisions. In order to involve
Germany ia war with the United
States the emporer would not
only have to get the consent of the
varying interests in the Bundesrath,
but he would also have to get the
consent ofthe public opinion, which
is the greatest force of all.
If Germany had a just cause oi
war no doubt the national feeling
would respond. But without such
injury to the national interest as
would constitute a just cause, and
without an appeal to the national
feeling or prejudice or honor, the in
telligence and self-interest of the
nation would assert themselves
against war. But assuming the im
probable, what sould Germany do?
Send her armies to this country ?
Absurd and ridiculous! How could
she do it? Where would our navy
be? And what would be her posi
tion at home?
She would immediately have
France across the Rhine, and trouble
possibly with Russia, Austria and
even Denmark. No country in
Europe is more powerful than Ger
many, but none is more exposed to
danger. She has not a sincere friend
on any frontier. In spite of her
triple alliance, she knows that she
cannot depend on either Italy or
Austria. And even within her own
domain she has a great many ele
ments of danger, such as the Freneh
in Alsace Lorraine, the Danes in
Schleswig-IIolstein and the Poles in
what was formerly part of Poland.
German statesmen know how little
they can trust their neighbors and
how much they have to look out for
France, and they are not foolish
enough to make crazy experiments.
As to a mere naval struggle be
tween America and Germany, hardly
any' comment is necessary. Ger
many has during the past twenty
years built some very good ships.
In numbers and on paper her navy
i3 formidable. But the real power
of a navy is not in tonnage or even
in guns, but in trained aptitude of
the race, in the education, develop
ment, heredity and breeding pro
duced not by twenty years but by
centuries. Before the Franco-German
war Germany -practically had
no warships. In fact, so destitute
was she of naval aspiration before
that event that there was not even a
secretary of the navy iu any of the
states of Germany.
. The whole suggestion of a war
with Germany is, as we have said,
preposterous. Nowhere outside of
Germany is the true German char
acter better understood and rppre
ciated than m this country, and
our sure reliance for the , continua
tion of our friendly relations rests
on our knowledge of the good sense
and intelligence of the German peo
ple, who would be almost unanimous
in their protest against the mere
thought of so unnatural a struggle.
There may be nothing at all In the
rumor of an impending disagreement
between Great Britain and Russia,
but such a rumor is 'quite enough fo
keep the powers of Europe occupied
with their own interests to. the ex
clusion of any idea of interference in
the affairs of the United States or in
our relations with Spain.
