typographical error, intontional
or otherwise, tho organ this morn
iug plnces tho dato of Mr. Dole's
second letter as April 20th in
stead of April 30th; wo will allow
tho organ tho bonefit of the
doubt. No ono has supposed for
moment that tho Advortisor cared
to discuss Mr. Dolo's attitudo
seriously, and it is also known
that tho "mattors of record" it has

Tho British Trado Roviow gives
voico in its Decombor issuo to tho
very natural conclusion that tho
British merchauts cannot view
with unalloyed satisfaction tho
extension of tho Amorican protec
tive systom to the now possessions
of tho United Statos, particularly
in tho Orient. Ono of tho prin
cipal results of the war is positive
ouiranco of the United States into
tho circlo of great maratimo pow
ers. This from a business stand
point calls for serious considera
tion from Great Britain, which
during lato yoars hasdono tho larger
part of tho American ocean carry
"Almost every country in Eu
ropo has already felt tho forco of
American competition in some do
partmeut of, trado; but whilo that
is likely to bo continued and pro
bably intensified, thero can bo
littlo doubt that attention will bo
chioily given to tho countries
bordoring on tho Pacific, und pro
bably most of all to China, which
offors so many possiblo lurgo de
velopments. "At tho present timo wo hear n
great deal about an allianco bo
twoen tho United States and
Britain, and it is to bo hoped that
at least a good understanding
wilt bo preserved botweon tho two
great English-speaking countries;
but at tho samo timo wo must not
shut our oyes to tho possible in
dustrial and commercial results of
the forces which aro in action.
"If British merchants and man
ufacturers obtain a fair field and
rio faVor8t they will bo qu!lo con
tent to accopt the results of a
friendly struggle If they aro
beaten in a fair fight, or on ac
count of disadvantageous econo
mic conditions, they will accept
tho position with eqanimity and
consider what their action should
be undor tho changing circum
stances of tho world; but it is to
bo hoped that they will insist, as
far as possible, on tho terms of tho
contest being as nearly equal as
Thus it is seon at tho very out
set that tho diplomatic Anglo
Saxon alliance and tho business
Anglo- Saxon alliance aro two
vory differont propositions. Busi
ness mon of England havo never
looked with particular favor on
the American protectivo systom,
and if it is extended over tho
Philippines thero will bo strong
forco brought to bear to obtain
faomo revision which will favor tho

That tho UnitedStates will throw
over comulotoly its protection
policy is not to bo supposed for
an instance. It is possible, how
ovor, that in liou of tho now
friendship oxisting botweon tho
English speaking nations, tho
suggestions and requests from
Ureat Britain will rocoivo more
earnest consideration than in tho
