AMERICA INFLUENCES EUROPE
The course of four of the most
prominent nations of Europe at this
moment shows in a striking way the
great influence which the United
States is beginning to exert in the
politics of the Old World. Until a
few weeks ago England's course in
Asiatic and African affairs aroused
great dissatisfaction among her citi
zens, but all this has been changed.
Some of the leading British papers
asserted that their government was
being deluded and beaten by France,
Germany and Russia, in the contest
which was being waged by them for
territorial aggrandizement in China.
Marchand's march across the Nile
region was interpreted by English
newspapers as not only an indication
that France desired to appropriate a
large part of Egypt, but as an evi
dence that she would get it. Liberal
journals charged Premier Salisbury
with weakness. The Tory press made
apologies for him, and attributed his
laxness to ill-health. But both ac
cusations and apologies have ceased.
The England of Salisbury has begun
to show some of the vigor she dis
played under the elder Pitt. The
change in England's course i one of
the surprises of the Old World's poli
tics. It all has come since the war
of the United States with Spain, the
strength which the United States
showed in that conflict, and the evi
dences of friendship by this country
for England displayed during that
struggle and since.
It was noticed and commented
upon by the British papers that the
only foreign diplomat present at the
banquet just given in England to
General Kitchener was the United
States representative. "In thus as
sociating our American kinsfolk with
our national rejoicings," says the
London Times, 11 we' desire to show
the warm appreciation of the sym
pathy with which General Kitchener's
victory has been commented upon
beyond the Atlantic." It is this
American sympathy, frequently and
conspicuously displayed of late, which
lias nerved England to turn upon her
enemies. America's moral aid would
be extended to England in any con
flict between that country and the
nations of continental Europe. Every
nation in the Old World knows this,
and has commented upon it. Ameri
ca's Influence in this way is decisive,
though not a shot need be fired by an
American vessel or soldier. The
fact that the United States would be
unfriendly to any combination
formed against England, so long as
England, as now, is fighting the
battles of civilization, has a deterrent
effect upon continental Europe which
turns the scales in favor of England.
Thus we see England preparing her
self at this moment to strike France
n Africa and France's ally, Russia,
in Asia, if provocation is furnished.
As a consequence France is evacuat
ing Fashoda and Russia's activity in
Chi nese affairs has suddenly ceased.
This evidence of the decisive char
acter of the United Slates influence
in Old World affairs will give time
liness and point to a prediction made
more than a century ago by a con
spicuous Englishman, "North Amer
ica is become a new primary planet
in the system of the world, which,
while it takes its owu course, must
bave its effect upon the orbit of every
other planet, and shift the common
center of gravity." The author of
these words was Thomas Pownall,
formerly a British governor in the
colonies, and then a member of the
House of Commons. The words were
uttered in 1780, and, a little over a
century afterward, they have become
literaly true. The United States, as
Pownall said, has become a new
primary planet, in the system of the
world, and it has moved the common
center of gravity of the universe. Its
voice will have a commanding po
tency hereafter in the councils of the
nations, and it will be directed in
the interest of civilization. Only
one of the great countries of the Old
World is in harmony with its methods
and aspirations, and its moral aid for
that country in this crisis gives the
latter a courage and a potency which
enable her to hold the primacy in
European affairs. Through England,
as against the continental European
nations, speaks America, civilization,
the twentieth century, the world's
newer and grander
