OUR INNATE POWER.
The Cologue Gazette accounts for
the complete silence of European
diplomatists in the peace negotiations
between Spain and the United States
y saying ihat interference by any
European power in the Philippine
question would have aroused the bit
terest enmity of the United States and
would have barred the importation
of the interfering power's products
into this country. Incidentally the
Gazette remarks that mutual envy
among the powers prevented concert
of action in continental Europe, al
though it was believed that England
favored American possession of the
Philippines with the idea of increas
ing the power of the Anglo-Saxon
race in the Asiatic Pacific. .
' In tlie case of England, as well .ua
in the case of the continental powers,
there was recognition of the innate
strength of the United States. The
question of interference in,..behalf of
Spain did not turn on sentiment, on
the friendship of the people, but on
business interests. No one of the
European nations could affpid to
sacrifice the American market; not
one cared to incur the hostility of a
nation ot 70,000.000- of people buyv
ing European products.
We import from European . and
Asiatic countries goods to the valu e
of 1880,000,000 annually. . Germany
in 1897 sold in America merchandise
to the value of $111,210,000; Great
Britain sold merchandise in American
markets to the value of $1 68,000,000 ;
France, $57,530,000; Belgium, $14,
000,000 ; Austria, $8,1 58,000 ; Switzer
land, $ 1 3,849,000 ; Italy, $ 1 9,000,000,
and the Netherlands,. $12,824,000.
The United States was a more valu
able customer in every way than
Spain. Her markets are becoming
more valuable every year, and the
idea of American expansion was from
the business point of view not antag
onistic to European interests.
Sentimental and political as well
. as business inte'rests influenced Eng
land in our favor,'- Sentimental and
political considerations undoubtedly
influenced Russia to support the
United States. Outside of these two
great powers the question was purely
one of business. The greatest power
on the ocean, England, and the great
est power on land, Russia, are bidding
for our friendship. All o,f the Euro
penn nations are -reluctant to antag
onize' 'In? UniU'l States. These facts
muku a clear that our policy should
be directed to the improvement of
our position among nations without
alliance with any. There may be
jealousy, unfriendliness, resentment,
but ih the end our innate power as a
great commercial nation will decide
controversies in our favor. Inter
There are good reasons why the
United States and Spain hereafter
should be on friendly terms. Many
of our new citizens have an infusion
of Spanish blood. The two nations
are neighbors in these days of swift
transportation across the Atlantic.
The only chains of islands reach
ing across the Pacific belong to the
United States. Alaska and the Aleu
tians almost span the ocean in the
north, while the Philippines and
Hawaii are the main stepping stones
in tropical latitudes. ,
The Spanish dream '."'-that some
European nation would-be willing to
pool issues with an' exhausted and
foolish country has been disappoint
ed. Spain's trouble hereafter will be
to keep back European aggression.
