There has been much twaddle indulged in concerning the Mon roe 'Dctrine, and the effect our. exploitations in the Philippines have exercised upon it. Its fune ral dirgs has been chanted by pa pers of all parties, and it has had, more burials than the silver ques-: tion ever had during its palmiest days. But in spite of all this, the Monroe Doctrine is still as vigo rous as ever and it will continue in force until the arm of the 04 American nation has been palsied, or until some of the South Ameri can nations grow strong enough to render American assistance un necessary. No matter how foolish or cri nal our policy in the Philippines may have Ieen, it has 'ad no more bearing upon the Monroe Doctrine than the edict of old Ca- - nute had upon the rising tides of the ocean. The Monroe Doctrine had no reference whatever to the affairs of Asia. It was provoked by the aggressions of the Holy Alliance in Europe, and its appli caticn is confined strictly to ouir relations with the nations of Eu rope. Politically, Asia is a "free zone," and Europe, outside of. Spain, had no more rignt to re sent our aggressions in the Phi lippines than she has to resent our exploitation of the moon. Spaitd had a right-acquired by'conques't S -to do so, and she did it with all her'might, the result being that the Monroe Doctrine stood the pressure and came out stronger than it ever was before. Moreover, the Monroe DOctrine never had anything stronger to stand upon than the will and pow er of the United States. It 'has, for the more than three-inarters of A century of its exibtence, been respvected by Europe simply be cause Europe knew that to attack it meant to stir up a war with the United States; and the most pow erful nation of Europe, having had two wars with as already, knew jqst exactly what that theast. When Mr. Olney told the British government in 1895 that the "will of the United States is law-in this hemisphere," the power which ed. tablished and maintained that doictrine was accepted by the world, and there will be few tool ish enough to believe that this power is weaker now than it was in 1895 or at any previous period. For more than seventy-fiveyears that power, and that alone, had maintained the Monroe Doctrine, o and it will continue to maintain it until the nations of South and Centrel America becnme strong enough to render it unnecedsary. The United States still possess *both the will and the powel to do so, and while some of the Etiro Spean nations may make wry faces a. t the Monroe Doctrine, it will be several years yet before the unight ilest of them will have the temer ity to attempt its overthrow.
