IRVING KING j «Copyright, 1919,' by the McClure News paper Syndicate.) THE HOLY ALLIANCE, 1815. Emperor Alexander of Russia Was Preparing an Alliance, the Plan of Which Was Conceived on the Most Altruistic Lines. Wlille the "prosale destinies of Eu rope" were being settled at the Con gress of Vleuna amid conflicting inter ests in 1814-15—while. In short, the peace delegates of -the European na tions were endeavoring to straighten matters out after the Napoleonic wars, just* as the delegates at the Quai d'Orsay are now assembled to straight en matters out as a conclusion to the recent war, an idealist in the person of Emperor Alexander of Russia was preparing an alliance the plan of which was conceived on the most al truistic lines and which, lie fondly hoped, would bring eternal peace to the world. It was not only to be a league to enforce peace between, the nations, but was to lay down certain principles which should insure peace, and prosperity within the borders of the nations. This was the Iloly Al liance. Emperor Alexander at that time was under the influence of a mystic. It seems that there was an "occult party about the Russian throne then, just as there was in the recent days of the lat^ Emperor Nicholas. Emperor Alex ander declared that there should be an alliance of nations founded upon high er principles than those which had heretofore guided the councils of princes and labored assiduously to ob tain converts to his plan. By a procla mation issued at St. Petersburg dated "on the day of the birth of our Savior, 25, December, 1815" the czar ordered read in all the churches a "convention concluded at Paris on the 25th of Sep tember, 1815, between the emperors of Russia ami Austria and the king of Prussia." Object in Farming League. In It these three sovereigns solemnly declared that they had "no other ob ject in forming the league except to publish to the whole world the fact that In tin? administration of their re spective governments, as well as In their relations with foreign states,'' they would take for their sole guidance the precepts of the Christian religion, namely, justice, charity and peace. By its terins the signatory nations were to keep peace with each other and gen keep peace TREATY OF UTRECHT, 1713. The End ?f the War of the Spanish Succession in Europe and cf Queen Anne's War in America. - I On April 1L 1713, was signed Utrecht in Holland a treaty of peace which closed a war that had been raging for twelve years—-the War of the Spanish Succession; known on this side of the water as Queen Anne's war. The question at issue was who should be king of Spain. I<eopold of Austria, emperor of Ger many, Claimed it for his grandson. France had become a mighty power and the nations viewed with alarm a Bourbon prince vhô ra, S ht t **'* ne king of France on the throne of Spain. At once was formed 1he "Grand Alli ance" of England. Holland. Austria and Germany, and, later. Portugal. France's allies were Bavaria and the duchies of Modena and Savoy. Spain aided with France but lacked money and men. This war brought out the splendid military genius of Marl horough and the scarcely less remark able genius of Prince Eugene of Savoy : and the victories of Blenheim, ItamilHea. Ondenarde and Malplaquet humbled the pride and broke the pow er of France. Colonies Bore Brunt of War. In* this country the northern and southern colonies bore the brunt of the war. The Carolinas, then one colony extending to Spanish Florida, »«nt a force which captured St. Au gustine but retired upon the arrival o/a French army. Further west a Carolina expedition fought Its way to H,e Gulf of Mexico. The French and Spanish fleets, attacked Charleston, but were driven off. In Massachu setts Haverhill and Deerfield were turned by forces of French ami In dians and In the heart of the state «he people were, kept in terror for venrs by prowling bands who burned * killed.

All the European nations subse quently signed tlie covenant except England. The restored king of France did not withhold his consent. In Eng land, however, tlie Holy Alliance was looked upon with suspicion from the first, and thougli there is no doubt of the sincerity of Emperor Alexander it was feared that It might serve as a cloak fqr tyranny and territorial ag grandizement. The terms of the al liance were so drawn as to be highly altruistic In the enunciation of prin ciples hut somewhat hazy with regard to their application. Metternich, the Austrian premier, appro veil the al liance with a few cynical remarks. Wellington said England would de mand "something more definite.-" What had been feared by the Eng lish statesmen happened. The Holy Alliance was evoked by interested sov ereigns to cover acts of tyranny and aggression. Imperial, historians agree that the treaty of the Holy Alliance itself was afterwards unjustly blamed for the acts committed in its name. At Verona in 1822 the Holy Alliance de termined upon interference in Spain to suppress the popular uprising there and France, as "mandatory, ' carried out that resolution. Enunciation of Monroe Doctrine. At this congress of the Holy Alliance at Verona »lie proposition was made and agitated, but not brought to a vote, that the armies of the alliance should cross the sens and effect a con quest of the revolted American colonies of Spain. When the news of this reache«! England, Canning, British sec retary of foreign affairs®wrote to Mr. Rash, American minister to England. Mr. Rush wrote to President Monroe and the result was the enunciation of the Monroe doctrine. \ The idea of the Holy Alliance, as Em peror Alexander planned it, was sub lime^ But it worked in a diametrically opposite manner from what he In tended. Perhaps its provisions were too vaguely drawn—perhaps the world was not ready for it. After the con gress of Verona It began to "peter out," itnd ceased to exist in 1S30. Five Nations in New York.

"Gentlemen.*' said one of tiie French envoys, "we come to treat cf peace among you. for you—and without you." Truce Between French and English. There was a truce between the French and the English but fighting went on between the Germans and tlie French. Germany began to split up Prussia being the first to desert the f emperor. The spring of 1713 had now come and England fixed the month of April ns the very latest date at which a peace must be signed. On the elev enth of that month a peace was s'gned between Prussia. England. France. Holland, Savoy and Portugal The duke of Savoy and tlie eleetor cf Prussia were recognized as kings; and Sicily (later changed for Sar dinia). assigned to the former. Louis recovered Lille and other towns in northern France and kept Louisiana England retained Gibraltar and Minor ca but Austria, with such German slates ns adhered to her, held off un til the next year, when she came tnd accepted the treaty with sonic niodiflcntlons which gave her the Spanish Netherlands.
