in making np the list of naftoai
invited to the Czar's conference was
doubtless careful to reoogni/.-' politioo]
fact? and avoid wnunditig the sus.. pti
bilityof state? justly entitled to t?-pn -
In view of this fact it is d
soni?what remarkable and ?igniti -ai t
that the United State? is the only
power In this hemisphere to which an
invitation wa? sent. This, too, Ifl
spite of the circumstance that some i f
the Latin republics of America are
vastly more important arid powerful
than are Portugal, Servia, Greece and
others, who?? title to wnt*?SSatatlOB l
recognized. Mexico is a very consid?
erable country, as respects area, popu?
lation and resource?. Argentine, Bra?
zil and Uhili ?occupy a large pito? i:i
the world's eye, and the same may be
said cof Venezuela, Uruguay and Para?
guay. Why, then, are not thsss r? -
public??which are very frequently at
war?invited to send delegates to the
peace conference? They even more than
the states of Europe need the lr-s m i f
peace and reijuire relief fr-.m the das -
lating struggles that paralyz* progress.
Their exolnsion, it i? sugget-ted, is
(lu?- |o the assumption on the part oi
the Czar that Mexico and the republii s
of Central and South America aie not
in fact independent republics, but,
from a diplomatic point of view, are
subject to the United States. Under
the Monroe d(?ctrine the United States
asserts a suzerainty over th?se ooan
tries, which place? them in a pooitl m
in relation to her comparable with
that of Egypt to England. The United
States having undertaken to speak for
Venezuela in her dispute over the
boundary of Guiana and Venezuela
having acquiesced in this extension <f
the Monroe doctrine, that so-called re?
public, in the Czar's view, is no lon?
ger a sovereign power, but must l?e
considered as represented at The Hague
by the United States. So of the other
Central and South American states.
Not having formally repudiated the
pretensions of the Monroe doctrino,
they must be taken to acquiesce in u,
and thus to forfeit the diplomatic
rights of inpependent states It was
open to the Czar, of conrse, to ignore
onr claim of suzerainty over the An er
ican republic?, but this he doe? not do,
preferring to take facts as he finds them
rather than offend tho United States
It may be observed, howevi-r, that this
reasoning is rather finely drawn. The
United States hardly claims so mach as
the Czar concedes and the South
American republic? are far from reoop
nizing onr predominence Is the Czar
slyly trying to extiact a disclaimer
from onr sister repub ics?
