Washington, July 27.—Some years
ago Mr. Balfour, then premier of
Great Britain, said in a' speech at
The time may come;
nay, the time must come, when some
statesman of authority, more fortu
nate than President Monroe, will lay
down the doctrine that between Eng
lish speaking peoples war is impos
So far as the inhabitants of this
continent are concerned, there has
been unaimous agreement for the past
two hundred years and more that war
between English-speaking peoples is
impossible except as a final resort
in defense of inalienable rights. It
was only when pushed to such ex
tremity that the people of this coun
try went to war with an English
speaking people, and they did it
twice—any they reserve the right to
do it again under similar circum
stances . Great Britain need not have
the slightest fear of a war between
English-speaking nations if she will
be half way decent in her internation
al dealings. We want nothing that
is British; we have no national am
bitions that are a menace to British
welfare; are are willing to let live
as well as live ourselves.
The people of the United States
are not blind to the fact that there
has been evidence of a change of
heart in the British government in the
last half century. The British peo
ple have always been friendly to th%
people of the United States, and they
have manifested that friendship when
they have had a chance. But the rul
ing powers of the United Kingdom
have not always been in harmony
with their subjects. It was the gov
ernment, not the people of Great Brit
ain, that oppressed the colonists and
drove them to rebellion. It was the
government, not the people of Great
Britain, that pursued the policy of
stopping American ships on the high
seas and taking therefrom American
citizens and impressing them into the
British navy, thus forcing the war
of 1812. It was the government, not
the people of Great Britain, that en
deavored to co-operate with the Con

But, as said before, there has been
some evidence of a change of heart
for, in 1898, when Dewey engaged
the Spanish fleet in Manila bay, and
the German naval commander made
effeort to assist the Spaniards, the
commander of the British ileet let it
be known that there was a thorough
understanding between hauself unJ
Dewey. This is a small incident, but
it has not been overlooked, for the
American people are always delight
ed to acknowledge any manifestation
of friendship from any source. Quite
likely the British commander, being
far from home and not in constant
touch with his government, acted on
his own judgment, prompted by the
feeling he entertained as one of the
millions of the people of Great Brit
ain rather than as one of the ruling
powers However, that may be. and
we would not analize his feelings too
closely, the incident served to remove
some of the old soreness that exist
ed in this country because of ancient
wounds. /
Turning now from the past to the
present and future, may we not sug
gest to the gentlemen who are now
shaping the foreign policies of the
United Kingdom that if they desire
a closer bond of sympathy with all
other English-speaking peoples, they
can help along in that direction by
avoiding the renewal of certain trea
ties of alliance with peoples who speak
an oriental language. We trust that
this suggestion is expressed in terms
that are understandable, even if not
technically diplomatic.

of both hands and loss of sight of
both eyes. He was awai'ded $200 a
month, and on his $10.000 insurance
the monthly payments of $57.50. An
attendant was furnished him and he
was fitted with artificial hands. Be

With a world conference in America
approaching, w© would suggest that
our diplomats abroad may employ
themselves usefully in placing Amer
ican ideals and objects clearly before
the governments and peoples to which
they are accerdited.
It is a special weakness of not a
few of our embassies that they be
come so enamored of foreign ways
that it is difficult for the casual vis
iting American to realize they are
representatives of this country.
This was most evident during the
years preceding^our entrance into the
Pi-unship for the countries
to which they were accerdited became
a sort of religion with many of our
dipolmatic employes and thier wives
and it was often impossible to recog
nize anything American in their at
titude. Any comment on these, their
armies, their acts or policies, which
was not enthusiastically or even blind
ly favorable, was resented by these
as savoring or
treason. This previous would have
been laughable had it not represented
state cmind which made Europe
representation of our national inter
estes impossible.
Since the war this evil may have
been in some degree abated, but it
has always exested and exists today.
We think the stalwart Americanism
of Secretary Hughes might be ad
dressed to correcting it and its effects !
and this might be partially accomp- j
lished by disection from the home of
fice to set about placing before the
foreign governments the American
point of view on a number of major
problems of American foreign pol
icy. If this were done we think it
would be useful not only in negotiat
in gour diplomacy abroad but in clear
ing the air for the conference. It is
not going to help the confrence to
produce results to have foreign con
ferees indulging the notion that
American statesmanship is doting or
asleep. In proportions as they re
spect us will mistaken finesse be laid
aside and the conference enabled to
get down promptly to a basis of prac
tical negotiation.
