Y f f f f ? ? ? ? ? f f believes that there may be found "quarries of that African marble which was used so freely in the deco ration of ancient Rome." On'e of the main points this writer dwells upon Is the great advantage to Italy and to Europe of Tripoli's posi tion as furnishing a shorter postal route between India andthe Mediter ranean countries, "owing to the near ness of her coast to that of the Mo rea, Southern Greece and Sicily," and he concludes as follows: "Taking all things into considera tion, the conquest of Tripoli and its cependencie3 is well worth to Italy that which It costs her. It may not be one of the best parts of Africa, It is perhaps the ltast fertile of the northern section of the country. It is possibly for this reason that the other Powers have passed It by. Neverthe less, if the Government settles it with prudence, Italian tax-payers will have nothing to repent of in the new colonial policy, especially when we consider what might bo their peril if those leagues of coast were occupied even by such friendly Powers as France, Great Britain, or possibly Germany." While Mr. Cora thus speculates In a spirit of optimism on the prospects of Italy in Tripoli, an English writer, who recently roused attention by his powerful book on war as the "great illusion," especially as regards terri torial possession, tells his readers iu London's Daily Mail that Italy is acting with blindness and Ineptitude. The only profitable' thing to a nation, we are told, Is the expansion of its trade., Mr. Norman Angell enlarges upon this point as follows: "In the days of the sailing-ship and the lumbering wagon dragging slow 1 over all but impassable roads, for cne country to derive any considera lie prolit from another it had, prac tically, to administer it politically. But the compound steam-engine, the railway, the telegraph have profound- bindery, Mr. L. S. Gray, received a beautiful silk umbrella, while Mr. L.

It is th-a case with every mod ern nation actually that the outside territories which it exploits most suc cessfully are precisely those of which it does not own a foot "All this diplomatic and military conflict and rivalry, this waste ot wealth, the unspeakable foulness which Tripoli is revealing,' are re served for things which both sides to the Quarrel could sacrifice not merely without loss but with profit. "And Italy, whose statesmen have been faithful to all the old 'axioms' (Heaven save the mark!), will dis cover it rapidly enough. Even her defenders are ceasing now to urge that she can possibly derive any real benefit from this colossal lnepitude. For Italy, as unhappily as the bal ance of Europe, the substance will be represented by the increase ot very definite evcry-day difficultly the h.'gh cost of living, the uncertainty ot employment, the very deep prob lems of poverty, education, govern ment, well-being.
