PAYING FOR NEW TERRITORY
A generosity exceptional in the
world's affairs has marked the course
ot the United States in its territorial
expansion from time to time. A
cash payment has been the rule with
this country. The law of ruthless
seizure is not to be found in our his
tory. Nor is a defeated adversary
treated by us as one who must give
p everything asked without receiv
ing an3'thing in return. That stern
demand has usually been enforced by
other nations, but not by the United
States. Our creditable custom is to
disarm the foe, but potto drive him
from his possesions worse than
empty-handed. Losers ii modern
wars usually pay a cash indemnity.
France was deprived of two entire
provinces in the last war with Ger
many and paid to the victor $1,000,
000,000 in addition. In the war of
1878 with Russia, Turkey lost ter
ritory both in Europe and Asia and
is still deeply in arrears for the cash
indemnity also exacted. Prussia
paid nothing for the annexation in
1866, by military force, of the Danish
provinces. Greece recently escaped
from the grip of Turkey by a cession
of territory on the frontier and a cash
indemnity. Spain is found to fare
exceedingly well when a comparison
The practice of the United States
in annexation Is far more considerate
than that of Europe. Almost in
variably we have paid a direct sum
in cash for territory acquired. For
the Louisiana purchase of 1803
France received $12,000,000. Spain
obtained $5,000,000 for Florida in
1819. Texas, with the standing of
an independent state, came into the
union voluntarily, accepting the ad
vantages as an equivalent, without a
cash payment. The cession of Mexi
can territory in 1849 involved a cash
payment by the United Stales of
$15,000,000 and debts assumed ' to
the extent of S3,500,000. The Gads
den purchase of 1853 cost $10,000,
000. Alaska was purchased in 1867
for $7,200,000. While Hawaii came
in this year without a direct payment,
the obligations assumed amount to
several millions. Porto Rico is re
garded as a partial war indemnity. It
will be noticed that the rule with the
United States has been to pay a lump
cash sum, and one large enough to be
quite welcome to the countries repre
senting the other side of the transac
tions. In the acquisitions referred to we
have paid to France, Spain, Mexico
and Russia a total of $52,700,000, an
nverage of $21 a square mile, or a
faction more than 3c an acre. To
give Spain $20,000,000 for the Philip
pines would be $87 a square mile, or
about 13c an acie. But the value of
the City of Manila is to be kept in
mind in making an estimate of this
nature. The offer includes impor
tant advantages in addition to the
$20,000,000 in cash. Spain will be
allowed to conduct commerce with
the Philippine seaports on the same
terms arranged for the United States.
If the Spanish clement there desires
to continue business on old lines no
discriminating taxes will bar the way.
The United States In campleting the
treaty also proposes to wipe out old
outstanding claims on both sides.
Liberality marks the proposition
throughout. Spain is enabled to be
gin a new era without the burden of
revolted colonies and free from the
war claims of a victor. She is lucky
to receive her lesson in war from a
