Jacob II. Schiff is described by a
Tokio newspaper ns responsible for
the Spanish-American war." It
would be quite as accurate to charge
him with responsibility for the
comet nov nearing the earth.
A great deal of fancy has played
about that war. Admirers of a New J
York editor claims that he brought
it on ; but they have nothing to go
upon but .lie fact that he sympa
thized with the Cuban cause, and
prior to the opening of hostilities
described in his newspaper the hor
rors of the Spanish rule in Cuba.
In that position and activity, how
ever, he did not stand alone in the
journalistic world. All the leading
American newspapers took the side
of Cuba against Spain, and gave full
accounts of the Spanish atrocities in
the island. -
The democratic leaders in Con
gress claimed credit for the action
of this government. They asserted
that, but for their prodding, Presi
dent McKinley would have forced
his party friends to swallow the
Maine episode, and there would have
been no war. And yet it is well
known that the President saw the
inevitable from the day the Maine
went down, and was preparing for
it while his political opponents were
loudly expressing fear that there
was no fight in him. He was not
of a blustering temperament and too
wise to strike when unprepared. But
when he did strike and it was soon
enough the effect on the enemy
It belittles the count cy to misre
present that episode. No newspaper
editor, no financier of any grade, no
political party in America, did bring
or could have brought on, the war
with Spain. The tragedy ripened
slowly and grew out of conditions
in Cuoa long well known, and cap
ped at last by the wanton destruc
tion of an American warship, with
nearly all of the crew, in the harbor
of Havana. Public sentiment in
America demanded tne war, sup
ported the war, and conquered
Spam. Neitheir an individual nor
a party could have forced the gov
ernment's hand if public sentiment
had not been in favor of action.
The reference to Mr. Schiff by
this Tokio newspaper carries in sub
stance this warning: "Look out!
The man who brought on the war
between America and Spain is try.
ing to bring on a war ln'twecn Am
erica and Japan. He is still power
ful. He may again succeed." The
answer is that he did not bring on
the war with Spain, and cannot
possibly bring on a war with Japan.
Public sentiment in America is not
in favor of a war with Japan, and
Mr. Schiff is as powerless to shape
it in that direction if it may be
assumed that he so desires as need
be. Money makes the mare go, but
Mr. Schiff does not command money
enough to make America go contrary
to the country's interests and in
