A YEAR OF GREAT EVENTS.
Within the twelve month period
which is now .closing the United
States has filled a large place in the
politics of the world. It was just a
year ago within a few days (April
19) that congress adopted the reso
lotions directing the president to
use the naval and military forces of
the United States to drive the Span
iards out of Cuba if Spain should
Tefuse to withdraw voluntarily from
that island. Two days later, or a
year from today, the war officially
began. No one in the United States
r anywhere else supposed at that
time that the actual fighting, which
lasted only 113 days, would" end so
quickly. No one, of course, doubted
that the United States would be the
victor ultimately, but everybody, on
this side of the Atlantic as well as
on the other, believed that the strug
gle would last longer than that.
Although the country was unpre
pared for war, its long period of
peace having banished the idea that
that condition would ever be inter
rupted for us again, it displayed an
energy, a versatility and a strength
which were a surprise to the world.
These aroused a respect for the
country among the great nations of
the world which has been shown con
stantly since then in the consideration
which is given to the opinions and
wishes of the United States.
In two particulars the effect of the
Spanish war constitutes a great epoch
in the life of this, country. , It has
Temoved forever a source of irrita
tion which has embarrassed the
country nt frequent intervals ever
since it became .1 nation, and it has
added materially, to the influence
which the country - wields in the
politics of this hemisphere. .The first
of these was the frequently recurring
controversies with Spain over which,
in the disputes about the navigation
of the Mississippi, the boundary of
Florida and the insurrections in
Cuba, more than once threatened to
precipitate war. All the chances for
trouble from any of these sources
have ended. No possibility of serious
disagreement with Spain on any
question can anywhere be discerned.
Spanish influence on this continent
has closed forever, and the United
States, to which this influence was
always inimical, as well as. civiliza
tion, is a permanent gainer thereby.
If the events of the past twelve
months had produced only this
-change in the prospects and prestige
of the United States, the year would
be one of the most notable in Ameri
-can annals. But they have done
much more than this. They have
given the country a-primacj. in the
po'itical affairs of this continent
which no other nation ever had over
a large part of the world since the
empire of Rome, in the days of
Augustus and Trajan. A few weeks
ago Cecil Rhodes predicted that the
United States would one day annex
all of the Spanish-American countries
Irom the Rio Giande to Cape Horn.
Some of the'""French papers have
hinted that Canada would be ab
sorbed even eailier than any of the
countries to the southward. MftDy
of the ideas as to the ultimate future
of the United States which were held
by some American statesmen in the
old manifest destiny days around
the time of . the close of the war with
Mexico, in 1848, are now beginning
to be expressed by persons outside of
this country. If there are any per
sons in this country who favor a
policy of indiscriminate territorial
absorption they are few and unin
fluential, yet the mighty things which
have come to pass since-those histor
ically great April days of 1898 tempt
the world to cast a stirring and mag
nificent horoscope for the United
