T::<! int.erfsreri.ee in Ihe struggle
between Spain and Cuba was on the
double grounds of self-interest and
humanity, and not because of the
Monroe Doctrine. The latter had
nothing to do with it. An intolerable
situation had been prolonged year after
- year within sixty miles of our
shores arid a horrible scandal maintained
in spite of our remonstrance.
The Southern republics are sovereign
States, with governments suited
to the conditions and wishes of the
people who inhabit them.
They are not the kind of governments
that we would care to have; but neither
are we the kind of people who live
in them. If foreigners go there to
make money?and that is the principal
purpose for which they go?they
are governed as they are anywhere
else by the vvcll-lcnown rule of law

dividends and they take heavy risks.
If we assume the role of trustee for
foreign governments or guardian for
the republics we will he apt to find it
a particularly thankless task and one
not devoid of danger and embarrassments.
The President encourages the building
of the Navy, and he strongly urges
the completion of the coast defenses
and the organization of a proper submarine
system. No more important
matter will come before Congress. It
would be possible in any emergency
to do without a navy, but if the defenses
of the coast are neglected any
naval power may lay an American
coast city under tribute or batter it
down, in spite of a navy, for the latter

of Congress- is also called to
a reform of the currency, embracing
the retirement of greenbacks and a
provision for redeeming silver dollars
in gold. __ He goes into the question of

France Does Not Favor Modification
of Treaty For
Dardanelles. _
PARIS, Dec. 7.?The reports that
France has given adhesion to Russian
overtures for - a . modification of ' ihe
Treaty of Paris, so as to penult the
Black Sea to pass through the Darilanelles,
are officially denied. The
authorities here say that no such application
has been made, and that at
present there is no indication of any
modification of the treaty. The reports,
it is added, originated through
an apparent misunderstanding between
the Russian Admiralty and the
Russian foreign office. The former,
dominated by the naval spirit, wishes
the Black Sea fleet to reinforce Admiral
Rojestvensky's squadron.
,The Russian diplomatic branch of
the government does not share this
view, owing to the recognized re
au ui inn; 4 icdij ui x^uiia.
It Is poinlefl out that the prohibition
of the passage of the Dardanelles
by warships of the powers is chiefly
beneficial to Russia, as it gives her
a preferential position in the Rlaclc
If the treaty is modified so as to
open the Dardanelles, the straits
thereafter will remain open for the
entrance of foreign fleets into 'the
lllack Sea, thus terminating Russia's
privileged position. Therefore, the
authorities here have reason to believe
that the Russian diplomatic
branch will not yield to the desires
of the Russian Admiralty. It. is recalled
that the admiralty brought on
the AhglOrJtussifm crisis by permitting
volunteer fleet vessels to pass
tlie Dardanelles without consulting
the Russian foreign branch.

Rojestvensky's latest account of the
