If y;o add to this a certain un rest spreading within some of the national bodies e.n grounds of racial j and social discontent, we have. I think, a complete map ol the elements of dls I turbanee Europe has to grapple with I at present. .Mutual Distrust. ??Tiie common feature of all these questions is their origin from mutual distrust and antagonism, their growth through an endless series of conflicts I und wars, Intersected by treaties, sanctioning the result of tho iact ,)nei but never getting any nearer to a linnl solution. "Another common feature of the political prolderns in Europe Is the ex w me difllctilty of bringing thctn Into a question of right or wrong, fit to be decided by some juridical procedure; That could be done only If arbitration were- organized as a sort of equity jurisdiction, where the judge applies maxims of sound common sense when? ever law fails him, or if we should consider as absolutely Invlolatable the status quo determined by treaties and precedents. Neither of these courses seems perfectly safe. The arbitrator Is not yet borne gifted with a moral authority that could compel treat na? tions to abdicate pretensions they think just ami cssentlon to their wel? fare or to yield to claims ihey deem unfounded and injurious to them, only bei ause ho happens to take a different view of the case. "The Eastern question is still more refractory to solution on juridical grounds. The European side of that question may be summed up as fol? lows; Russia wants an outlet to the open sea; her northern ports being frozen during several months, she can find it all the year round only through the Dardanelles. Hence her constant bias to get control of those straits. Near the Dardanelles; ;o to say around them, liussia finds several small na? tions, in part still subjected to the Turkish rule, partly emancipated from it. j '?The vital interest ?f Austria-Hun? gary in these affairs is well known, it j is her special cause of uneasiness. j Russia's control of the Dardanelles, would mean her absolute sway of the j Balkan peninsula, tho total absorption i of all its Slavonic states into the sphere of Russian power. In that case I'Auftria-l-I?ri'gnry, and Rumania, too. j would her caught as between iron fangs, liable to be < rushed between them, or ! to be Immobilized in a situation of j unsafely. Should Austria-Hungary then fe<d bound to submit to such a lot? Would :t be easy to give a verdict or right of wrong in a conflict be? tween interests like these?some of them vital? Two Great Problems. ?'The two great problems?Western and Eastern?of Europe, combined with problems of Colonial policy, have given origin to the two great combinations of European powers, the Triple Al? liance and the Triple Entente. On one side we see Germany, Austria-Hungary, Italy, who arc in the main satisfied with the status quo. On the other side France and Russia, the two powers if whom there is much that is objection? able in the status <|iio. '"How England came to side with these two powers rather than with the Triple Alliance can be explained only by considerations belonging to the Held of colonial policy. At present she seenis inspired by the novel sensa? tion of seeing a possible rival in her hitherto undisputed domination over the seas and In the tie Ids of colonial expansion; that rival being Germany, she sides with the combination from which Germany is absent, forgetful of] the- menace which Russia's steady ad? vance in Central Asia may mean to her Indian empire. "A distinguished Russian diplomatist once told me that to the best of Iiis be? lief there would be no more great wars In Europe, hut that be saw constant danger of colonial conllicts. There is danger of conflict with tho territorial power and with the riv.il colonizing power. The so-cailed uncivilized coun? tries show a distinct and growing un? willingness to offer themselves a prey to foreign colonization. The territory open tei colonization becomes smaller, while need of it Increases; that makes competition for what there remains t'icrcer from tiny to eiay. It. seems not only necessary, but urgent that prin? ciples should he laid down by inter? national agreement to regulate colonial problems, and that the application of those principles should be confided io in international court o( justice or to obligatory a rid trat ion. "The p ople of Europe bear the bur? den of an annual military expenditure of $l,r>00.00(),?00 in times of what is called peace; they shrug their shoulders and sigh over it, but they submit to it as to some law of nature that lies be? yond our control. Man is hardly able to conceive what war would mean In these times when the nations are. so dependent on each other in their every? day wants, and It their dally habits. That far away from the horrors of bat* tlefields, ruin hardly , less horrible, would befall hu ods of thousands of peaceful citizens. Tho instinct of self j preservation recoils from such a ?vholcsalo massacre of numberless in? dividual interests; comparing certain cost to possible results, war is found ? to be a business that does not pay. Public Spirit Languid. ''Languor Is a general feature of public spirit nowadays; languid em be Jialf of. peace, it is alill more languid [concerning war. Those passions that , kindle the flame of n warlike spirit i In a whole people, seem to he. If not extinct; certainly weakened, commer? cial spirit Ikis grown und spread with I the growth and spread of commercial I transactions; that spirit becomes war? * like only when prollt is to bo expcot I e<l from war at a minimum of com ?and this is why faraway colonial wars are 1 not .always distasteful to it. j The forces that work for . pre? servation V'f bep.ee have an easier task I before them than could have been sup i posed, after the foregoing sketch of I European d'fllculties. Foremost among ; these forces stands (hb sincere love of .peace animating the rulers of nations. There Is not a single Emperor or ! King In Europe whose ambition points toward war. who docs not prldo him? self on having bestowed on his sub ' Joels the blessings of peace. True they prepare for war all the same, ami they I do not choose therein to be checked*; ! but this Is a tribute paid to the pre? carious character of tho situation; j there Is m> hidden scheme of aggres r.Slbh behind ttielr armament:'. "In my opinion the next best thing 1*0 peace permanently secured is peace actually preserved; the longer an ac? tual outbreak i:> prevented, the more do ponding questions l?s? of their edge; bitterness of feeling suh?idcs, a con? ciliatory atmosphere spreads; tltho Is won 'o prepare Solutions, to work on public opln'on, to cover more and more ground by dictates of International law, to bring more and more problems "vlthln the Hcopo of juridical principles, to convene international conferences and to make treaties and conventions based on justice, not on the results of violece, combining therefore moral force with formal right. The slow evo? lution town-d a permanent peace es? tablishment requires a certain lap.-,, of time uninterrupted by war; such a epoch of precar'ous peace in an Indis? pensable precursor of institutions se? curing peace altogether. "We have seen that the state of Eu? rope |s a precarious one. and that no? body can seriously answer for the morrow. Still, peace is likely to h preserved for several years to come. The worst of the situation Is that, in most European countries we have no such vigorous public opinion In favor of peace. "In remedying this, "6ii Americans may efficiently assist iis You can do It by developing within your conti? nent peace Institutions fi' to serve as a model to the world at large; by pro? posing, as President Taft announced Ills Intention to do, arbitration treaties on broad iines to the powers "f Eu? rope.

It is especially beneficial to men and women between the ages of sixteen and forty-five; who from lack of proper nerve force and digestion remain undeveloped in body, iimlis. arms and bust.

The benefits are generally I distributed, in Mr. Knox's opinion, and I "no permanent injury to any produc- | lng class is apprehended." Speaking of the provision for frecj wheat, Mr. Knox pointed but that the | transportation facilities of the United, States for handling tin- surplus Cana? dian crop must be taken inte? account, thus preventing "the demoralization of prices which results through the dump? ing of larger quantities, upon the Euro? pean markets, where the world's supply; is fixed." lie declared that the free ad? mission of grain from Canada would meet the present situation and place the control in the hands of the American grain growers.

The general observation is one of grati? fication that the arnngement is bene? ficial to both countries.

Opposition Klltlle. "A generous measure of reciprocity between Canada and the United States is but a natural expression of their interdependence. Efforts to restrain, hamper and interfere with its realiza? tion will be as futile and unprofitable as were the early ruinous trade wars between the States.
