There are insistent problems facing America which cannot be solved by insular or inexpert legislation. The schooling and experience v/hich qualified many men at the last elections are now inadequate for the responsibilities which neither we nor they anticipated. The world was at peace. The extension of military strength was not an issue. The tariff question wore a different complexion. There were no closed markets to our products or for our necessities. Immigration was steadily increasing. Our factories were busy producing standard merchandise. The ships of all nations were at our disposal. Our chief concerns were internal. Our attention was centered upon currency reform, trust administration, railroad regulation. Then suddenly Europe ran amuck and upset every plan and calculation in the universe. For the first time, we were brought to realize the many ways in which our fortunes are involved with those of every civilized power. Now, we know that the two hemispheres are Siamese twins, bound by a stretch of ocean. It is impossible to cut ourselves off even if we wished it. We are learning tremendous and momentous lessons?lessons which others aro j teaching us at a ghastly price in lives and billions. We will never think again as we thought, be as wa were. We cannot return to old ways because, in the light of recent developments, they wilj. not serve the future. Our ideals are permanently altered; we are not certain what we must do tomorrow, but we are sure of many things it will be inexpedient to repeat.

The New Diplomacy is a 42-centimetre shell. Whether we become a martial republic or continue in the paths of our fathers, we must prepare for probabilities. We have witnessed miracles of efficiency over there for which we have no equivalent. The Brobdingnagian war machine which today is making sausage of civilization, will eventually be dismantled, reassembled and devoted to the task of re-creation. Their wits sharpened upon such necessity as wo have never met, these people already habituated , to super-human endeavors, will soon begin to battle as i i in 1 -j -i i l ji' valiantly ana uniteaiy to restore ana repienisn tneir empires. Grim and dogged communities will emerge retempered from the ordeal of the crucible. They are accustomed to economics we will not consider?to regulations we deem hateful.
