EXPANSION AND LIBERTY.
A fine illustration of the folly of
forming theories before collating
facts is given in an address just de
livered by John Mbrley, the well
known British statesman, in which he
deplored the present tendency to ex
pansion which is seen in the policy of
England and the United States.
Speaking for England he said that
the prevailing spirit of imperialism
must inevitably bring militarism, a
gigantic and daily growing expendi
ture, increased power to aristocrats
. and privileged classes, and war.' Mr.
Morley is one of the best informed
on matters of history of all the states
men now at the front in England. He
is a typical scholar in politics. More
over, he has been in public for about
a quarter of a century, and has thus
had an incentive to study public
questions on their practical side. He
is a radical, too, and must be sup
posed cn that account to be familiar
with the differences in the political
conditions in England between the
nrescnt time and the recent and the
remote past. He has overlooked
those differences in . this exigency,
however, for the history of his coun
try in the past three quarters of a
century proves that there is no such
relation between imperialism and
prerogative as that which he tells.
What Mr. Morley calls imperialism
has found its most conspicuous as
sertion as a settled policy in England
within the past sixty or seventy years,
and j-et no country in the world has
made such advances in liberalism as
England has in that time. When
England in 1783 lost all her Ameri
can colonies except Canada the world
for a time supposed that her power
was ended, and that the fate of
Athens, Rome, Venice and other
.states which had once been great,
.but which had vanished from the
map of the world, would soon be
hers. But in the wars with Bona.
parte shortly afterward she revealed
a power and a persistency which she
had not shown before, and immediate
ly afterward she began a career of
evoansion which has no parallel in
history. With this territorial expan
sion an expansion in the rights and
privileges of her people nave gone
hand in hand. The franchise act of
1832 added 500,000 voters to the
British electorate. The act of 1867
increased the list by about 1,100,000.
The act ot 1884 added more than
2,000,000 to the roll. Shortly be
fore Mr. Morley was born, or before
1832, only 400,000 persons in Eng
land were permitted to vote for
members of the house of commons.
The number which voted in the last
general election was sbout 6,000,000.
Previous to 1832 only one in fifty of
the inhabitants of the United King
dom were electors. One in six have
that status today.
The period of England's greatest
expansion, that is to say, is coinci
dent with an extension of popular
rights and a diffusion of liberty in
that country such as the world never
saw in any great nation before, for
. the basis of the franchise in the
United States, notwithstanding the
property qualifications in many of
the slates at the outset, was brotd
from the beginning. England, dur
ing the period in which she has ex
tended her rule over Asia, Africa
and the islands of the sea, has pro
gressed nearer to Democracy than
any other great nation of. ancient or
modern times except the United
States. Lord Derby a Ultle over
forty years ago advocated the raising
of a "barrier against the current of
that continually increasing and en
croaching Democratic influence in
this nation which is bent on throw
ing the whole power and authority of
the government nominally into the
bands of the masses, but practically j
and really into those of demagogues
and Republicans." The "Democratic
influence" which the great Tory
chieftain deplored has come in Eng
land, and Derby himself was .obliged
to help to extend it by the franchise
bill which he and Disraeli were
forced to put through parliament a
few years after he made this out
burst the franchise act of 1867.
The peril which England's radical
leader imagines he sees in imperial
ism does not exist. Nowhere in the
world's history has the power of the
"aristocrats and privileged classes"
diminished in such a degree and that
of the masses increased as it has in
England in the period in which its
expansion in territorial area and
political prestige has been greatest.
