BLAINE'S FOREIGN POLICY.
It must bo admitted that Mr. Blaine
is not running very well in Great
Britain. The newspapers of that
country are generally against Lim;
the great manufacturing interests do
jiot view him with favor; and the
bankers, merchants and speculators
in stocks and produce are disposed,
as a rule, to be unfriendly to him.
There can be little doubt that if the
election were to be decided by Brit
ish votes ho would be beaten, so pre
valent is the feeling that his success
would be a disadvantage to British
commerce and British enterprise. It
has been a long time since so much
interest was manifested by the press
and politicians of that part of the
world in one of our elections; and
never before has British complacency
and self-confidence been so seriously
disturbed by a presidential nomina
tion. Usually, our cousins over the
' sea treat our political contests with
levity or indifference; but in the pres
ent case they are clearly taking a
sober vjew which is to say that they
are sagacious enough to understand
the tendency of things, and to realize
the danger which threatens them and
They do not fear any change in the
political relations of the two conn
tries. There is no probabilities that
a war will ever take place between
nations so thoroughly resolved to live
at peace with each other. Their
rivalry is of a sort that puts war out
of the question; but it is none the
less sharp, determined and important
For many years past we have been
steadily encroaching upon the mother
country in the matter of trade, while
our products of all kinds have in
creased and are still increasing at a
rate that never had a parallel. Ours
is to-day the wealthiest nation on the
earth, and it is also the most energetic,
progressive and generally forceful and
influential. The supremacy which
Great Britain has so long enjoyed as
a commercial power is gradually slip
ping away from her, and her loss in
this respect is mainly the gain of the
United States. Her capitalists and
manufacturers, her economists and
statesmen, can very readily see ths
meaning ana enect or our won
derful growth and development
They well know that we are not any
longer dependent upon any other
country, and that we have reached a
point where we are prepared to ex
tend our commerce into new fields
and at the expense of British inter
ests, particularly. That is what
alarms them; and that is why they
are looking just now with so much
solicitude to the course of our pres
The position of Mr. Blaine upon
this question of the extension of
American commerce is verv candid
and decided. He contends that we
should promptly take advantage of
every opportunity to enlarge our
trade and influence by peaceful
means and in accordance with correct
business .methods. It is his belief
that Great Britain now has the ben
efit of certain markets notably in
South America which properly be
long to us, and which we should take
vigorous measures to possess and
make profitable. There is no good
reason, in his judgment, why
we should stand back and per
mit any European power to
monopolize the traffic of any
portion of North or South America,
when by due exertion on our part
such a condition of affairs can be
- prevented. He does not believe in
resorting to force for the promotion
of such a policy, but he does main
tain that we should let it be distinct-
- ly known that, while we seek no quar-
rel and desire no war, wo propose to
stand by our rights and protect our
interests at any cost That is the
-sum and substance of Mr. Blaine's
doctrine with regard to our foreign
relations. There is nothing very
wild and desperate, it must be allow
ed, in such a theory. It is patriotic,
certainly, and it is logical, sensible
and practical.- There are obvious
reasons why Britishers should be
dissatisfied with it; but no American
, can find just ground for refusing it
The Railway Age, speaking of the
Oregon Shoit Line, says: "The Union
Pacific's line to Oregon and the Pa
cific Coast at Portland is rapidly ap
proaching completion. The Oregon
Short Line now lacks only two and a
half miles of reaching Huntington,
Oregon, a distance of 510 miles west
from Granger, Wyoming, the point
at which it branches from the main
line of the Union Pacific, and 1,417
miles from Omaha. The Oregon
Eailway and, Navigation Company,
which is pushing a line eastward
to meet the Oregon Short Line has
laid its track to within seventy miles
of Huntington, the meeting place,
and grading will be completed by
Septemger. The distance from Port
land Oregon, to Huntington is about
410 miles, making the total distance
from O-maha to Portland by this route
1,827 miles, and from Chicago to
Portland 2,319 miles which is al
most exactly the distance from Chica
go to cthe same point via St Paul and
the-Northern Pacific. Active com
petition between the Union and
Northern Pacific roads for Oregon
btwiseas is likely, therefore, to com
mence within a few weeks, although
it will be restrained from injurious
results by the amicable understand
ing which has already been arrived
at The public will have tlfo benefit
