That the Monroe Doctrine Is af fected by the new Interests nml re sponsibilities of tho Culled States Is not to be disputed. It bus been a coni lulling, expanding and progres sive policy, mid annoi bo disassoci ated from the planting of the Ameri can Mug In the Canal Zone, .Mr, Ot.

"shall the l.utlit Aiiierleim policy of the United Suites be so shaped nml enlarged Hint, while preserving the Monroe Doctrine In Its original spirit and application, It shall ill the same time adequately provide lor and protect the new Interests the fulled Stales has uciiilred through Its proprietorship of the Panama Ca nnl';" .Mr. Wilson, he thinks, has pointed the way In his course toward .Mexico by callltie In the A It 0 South Americans for uilvlce nml coopera tion. The sequel, In Mr. ()i,m;y's Judgment, should be a Concert which "would put all the American Stales behind the .Monroe Doctrine" ami In sure Its recognition In Iniernatloual law, which hitherto has been lacking, Thus a step would bo taken toward a federation of the World, u Parlia ment of Mini. Instead of the great ballon of the North with groupings of nut elated little nations lu the South protected ami regulated bv the .Monroe Doctrine, with consequent friction, there would be a fulled America, all for one ns vvpll as one for all. The "preparedness" In the fulled Suites would not be so dllllciili ami burdensome. Mr. tii.xt.v thinks, if the Southern nations were leady with iiriiuiments for the common defence. However, li will occur to military ex-JK-rts that the fulled Slates, being the senior partner in the eiipiprle and having much more at stake, could place no dependence upon the "pre paredness" nf the Central and South Americans. And then there s alwn the strategical consideration of ie muteness, of seas and vast land sluices between. The ex-Secretary of State has mnde a suggestive contri bution to the Paii-Amerlcmi question.
