him again as- English Ambassador to the Curt
of Prussia, anti thero*he remained until the close
of the Franco-Prussian wat- and the formation
of the Oerman .Empire. Shortly afterward h.*
was sent lo Russia, where he completed his dip?
lomatic career with the experiences ,,f the w..r
between Russia .in-1 Turkey In 1877 and ivs and
the subsequent negotiations f?>r peace. It was
his view as a statesman respect lng ihe ntness or
things which lsd him after the Franco-Prussian
war to a?k for his own recall. The pren p lin?
eal changes which had taken place In Owtatni
.seemed to him to demand a new Ambassador
from England. But if h<* had been ihinkinp of
the matter from thc level of literary achievement
he could not have conic to a wiser conclusion. A

enBbleri him to divine where lha next conflict
of European significance was to lake place. A i
more prosaic rsaaon for his wish to leave Ger
many after ihi- beginnings of the Empire may
have been the feeling of ilisllke toward Englaml
which he had to meet. It was manifested fi rs t
while tho war was In progrewa, nnl the primary
cause of lt was tbe supposition In the opinion
of the author wholly groundless and unwar?
ranted?that Enplidi preferences were adverse
to Germany, an.l that Englishmen had violated
neutrality in the character of the traffic wblcb
tliey carried on with France. "These ac?
cusations," remarks Lord Augustus Loftus,
"were ably and satisfactorily repudiated by Lord
Granville, but they left their traces behind, snd

feeling continued to exist in Oermany; but hap?
pily lt evaporated, and ther.* now exists, and
more strongly since the fall of Prince r.lsmarrk.
that cordiality between the two countries which
I trust will never lao disturbed."
The mild allusion i > Prince Bismarck ls quite
as severe as the author permit* himself lo make
to any one. It shows where the responsibility
lay in his opll '. ll f r t'i" feeling which he had
to meet. Tilt he had spent nearly the wi
his active lifo in Berlin. He had been Bucesslvely
Charge d'Affalres, Envoy Kxv Am-]
bassador to tho King of Prussia, at, I \
sador to ihe n irth '"?mian Confederation, and
"had been a witness?If not a I ir ia
two wats of the greatest magnitude thal hal
tak- n idace in our era " The fa ; that German
representatives at foreign c urts and foreign
representatives at th- Court of Berlin had to
Iva fresh credentials gave him the oprpor*
tunity which he desired of rdinqui-hlng his
post, and of allowing a n-w man ti adjust him
(Wlf to the new conditions. The change In Oer?
many was hardly greater than the change re?
quired In the world at larpe to adapt its-lf to the
results of Sadowa and Sedan. The author il?
lustrates this by the record of his own views in
respect to the Prussian war with Austria as
compared with the German war with France.
In the farmer ea?o his sympathies were with
Austria; In th- latter they wren With German***.
Prussia, as thc- la ader of Ormany hal taken "ti
a different aspect s'.nve Prince Bismarck's plan
for Oerman unity be*ran to be realized. S'ut.-s
mcn,who hal bs-.-n thinking all the while of the
? fragmentary Germany which his',irv presented
to thdr oya-s now saw tint tli- fragments h ? I
^^ begun to fuse, i: i; hy the artifice of politicians,
i^k but hy the heat of popular sentiment. The i.v ,
U lutlon iii the ; pular feeling was concealed be
^^ < nu ? - :??-? h.i'l been up to the time of the war
with Austria nothing to bring lt to light. Bul
its existence was shown In th* lightning-like
swiftness with wh! h events followed each other
until Austria's humiliation was accomplished. At
this time Lord j\ugustus Loftus shared with his
chief. L.rl Clarendon, then at the head of the
Poreipn Office, the feeling that war on th- part
of Prussia was inexcusable. On ihe ulher hand
he appears to have agreed with Lord Clarendon
lh speaking of the "humiliation" which Prn??l7i
Bought to put upon Austria and to have ap?
proved the choice which Austria made of war.
"A disastrous war," wrd-* L >r 1 'darendon, ept
grarnmatlrally, "!s better than v duntary dls
, grate." When Lord AugustUB Loftus read I. ird
Clarendon's dispatch to Count Bismarck the
latter capri ss>d his gratitude for the fri. ill
Interest shown by England in Prussian affairs.
Then speaking of Austria ho added: "I might
use the words of Richelieu to his discarded
mistress 'We are not enemies, but we no long r
loire each other.' He had a list of grievances
against Austria, particularly the Holstein dis?
pute. Rut the real point upon which hs Insisted
was that war coull not bo avol la-d. He had mi
dceiro for lt; on th** c ,nti*ary, he hoped for pence.
Itu*, he thought only th*- sword could decide the
differences between Prussia and Austria. It was
chant terlstio and perhsps cynical In him to say
that the opportunity for settling all dispute* W84
now favorable?"an opp.rt unity that might not I
oocur again for a century." He was not at all I
Impressed by the rather old-fashioned suggestion
or Lord Clarendon that, "It would reflect great
credit upon Prussia If before she Wet)! out I nf his
duel with Austria she volunteered t > place her?
self in the harris <.f Bet) *tt_*B upon whoas impar?
tiality she could rely, and with whom her honor
would be In safe keeping." Hut this remark had
? an apparent effect on the King. Th* latter for
a moment rather favored the thought of arbitra?
tion and even went so far as to ask the Crown
Prince to write to the Queen of England re
' questing her good, off! ts as mediator. In the
light of this action ori the part of the King I*Ot*d
Augustus loftus again spoke t*a Count Bismarck
to prevent any misapprehension as to the con
* duct of the English Foreign Office, but wa., met
wl'h the hint that "wc ahould address our?
selves to Vienna, for A is'ria waa tlie party who
' threatened to bs the disturber of the peace." tts
could easily say this because Austria was moving
troops after the slow fashion of earlier times,
while Prussia, d?pending on the prevision of j
"Moltke and Roon, never stirred man or gun till (
the very eve of conflict.
"What would you do." Inquired the Count, "If i
you found a violent, .dangerous man In the street |
threatening the public security and pence?"
Lord Augustus Loftus replied: "I should im?
mediately call tl*..- p< lice, ansi in toy estimation
the Great I* wers c institut.* the Police o-f Europe
for the nival ti te nu nco of peace."
"But IT lt wa. the case of a gentleman," Bug
gested Bismarck, "you would give him your
"I think not." said the Englishman.
The login of'diplomacy wai doubt!, ss ..n tbs
side of the author, but the logic of an lrrepr.-*
Blble conlllct was on the Bide a>f Bismarck. He
felt this and did not take overmuch pains to
'Justify his advocacy of war In the eyea raf the
world. Once in talking on the subject *sf peace
or war he observed: "Why, after all. Attila was
a greater man than your Mr. John Bright. He
has left a greater name In history." In other
words ons might just as wei! speak lightly as
berfously In the face of what everybody deemed
a calamity, but which was nevertheless Inevi?
table. But at heart the ruler of the coming Em*
plre was very serious. He felt that his own fate
was interwoven with that of Prussia. An at?
tempt to assassinate him, when he arrested the
would-be murderer. Ferdinand Cohan, with his
own hands, must have had Hs effect upon Mm.
Moreover the long struggle which he had, as de.
ploted by L .rd Leoftus, I i overcome the scruples
af the King must, have also left its traces on his
mind. The King was benevolent and bumana.
lb* took a paterna-1 interest In mankind. There
were those who represented to him In strong
tolora the fratricidal character of the war?a
?rai of Gormans against ihelr German brethren.
