1ND1A UNDER BRITAIN'S ' RULE The Policy of OlyiUzition and Plunder Pictured by an Englishman. SCATHING REVIEW OF NATIONAL GREED Fff lt * of Expansion lzio cd for the Heneflt of American tin- perlatUt * An Example to lie Shunned. LINCOLN , Nov. U. To the Editor of Tha Bee : The adoption of nn imperial policy of expansion by u republic is cer tainly a strange paradox , more especially In the case of a republic having such a national creed as our Declaration of In dependence and a constitution based on the right of alt peoples to bo tbe arbiters of their own destiny. The friends of this divorce from all national precedent and tra dition , as well as from the underlying prin ciple upon wblch our government 1s founded , try to hide the naked selfishness aud greed of this national landgrabblng under tbo cloak ot religion and civilization. They toll us that it Is the duty of the American people to become knight er- rants and to go forth , like Don Quixote , re dressing wrongs and emancipating Islands from the control of Imaginary monsters ; that It Is our "manifest destiny" to preach Christianity and civilization to the be nighted heathens , Turks , Jews and Catno- llcs , who have not the blessed advantage of enjoying thnt only genuine and infallible recipe for all mundane blessedness , called now-a-days Anglo-Saxon religion and civi lization. Forsooth we are to lock arms with John Bull , Insult every other * nation on the face of the earth and make Eng land' * quarrel ours , when we have de graded ourselves to the same level \rt murderous greed and brutality. We are to make the Philippines another India , and wo ar * to cheat , cozen , He , rob and mur der most foully to maintain and control our Ill-gotten vassal territories. Enfdnnd In India. England has had almost undisputed sov ereignty over India for a hundred years , and may wo ask if she has advanced Christianity or civilization among the 250,000,000 sub ject < to her swayT" As a positive fact , the Hindoo of the lower castes In India Is mor ally and intellectually superior to tbo lower order of Anglo-Saxon In Great Britain , lot Ibis religion be what It may. Tbe former is a theoretical pagan , the latter is a practical one , In the most odious sense of the term. What has England done for India ? I win let Prof. R. H. Hyndman , a well known political and eoolal authority in London , epoak on the qucetlon , and I hope those who advocate an American imperial policy of expansion and foreign alliances win carefully weigh these words , which form the concluding portion of Prof. Hyndman's ret cent pamphlet , entitled "Tho Approaching Catastrophe in India. " He says : "Hero , then , we can see clearly that It Is not English Influence , or English sovereignty eignty , or even English lack ot knowledge and sympathy , that of th mselveri spell famine and ruin. But that a system of wholesale Europeanlzatlon in India , and nb- eontoo capitalism out ot India , Inevitably destroy whatever good there might otherwise bo * in our rule. The more shameful Is It , alike to our statesmen , and to ourselves as Englishmen , that we should continue to bleed to death the 250,000,000 human he- ings for whose welfare we are directly re sponsible. The poverty of British India is no Inevitable thing. The frightful famines of 1866 , of 1876 , of 1896 , not to speak of minor visitations , are not due to natural causes. The poverty and the famines both are oitaUd by ui ; and the crime of murdering fhl * helpless people by the minion | les at 9111 door.1 InfameBM W on * ; . "For Juit tour and twenty years I have done my best. In season and out of season , to bring home o my countrymen the Infamous wrong which \e \ being done in their name , and to warn them of tbe catastrophe loom * Ing. directly ah'cad ot them. I have hoped against hope that I might , with others , suc ceed In moving them to action , while yet there was time. My work so far has been in vain , and I very much fear that It is now too late to save the situation. The whole of the dominant class In the United Kingdom la Interested in maintaining the present sys tem of ruinous aud criminal extortion. Gov ernorships , military commands , civil and military appointments at 'high ' salaries , fat pensions , well-paid homti posts. Interest and dividend ! on money lent , outlets tor their soni , and Investments for their money , close the eye * of the governing dance In England to the economic and political collapse wblch it now rapidly approaching. " " "With a few honorable exception * , the entire English press Is controlled en this question by Anglo-Indian pensioners , whose ole object is to defend and maintain the existing jnUgovornment. It Is * ad , Indeedt to see the inevitable colfepao which must be the outcome of all this fatuity and greed , coming nearer and nearer each day , while Englishmen are deliberately deceived a * to th * truth. " Remits of BBgllsh Rale. "What a glorious empire India might have been under wise and sympathetic English leadership It requires but little imagination to conceive. But now famine and pestilence , robbery and oppression , are spreading discontent with our Raj through out the country. Tbe events at Poona , where the assassins of Mr. Rand and Lieu tenant Ayerst have not yet been caught , though the heavy reward ot 20,000 rupees ls offered to anyone who will betray the actual' murderers ; \h \ riots at Ohltpur , 'where Mohammedans and Hindoos , of the s4me race , though of different religion , we must bear In mind , combined once more against the Europeans ; the spread of knowledge , not only In the cities , but In the country , of the truth that to the English rule Is due the great Increase of poverty and the frequent recurrence of famine , which knowledge la producing sullen discontent and stifled hatred among the nations , from the Himalayas to Cape Comorln , and from Iurmah < to D.mbay ; the systematic risings of the tribes along our northwest frontier , probably backed by the Ameer , simultaneously with the growing unrest of tbo Mohammedans within our border all these things prova that economic dangers are not the only dangers which wo shall have to face within the next few years. "Gladly would I BOO our country escape tbe retribution which U has so Justly earned. Gladly , oven at this eleventh hour , would I welcome any steps on the part of the government toward stanching the drain of produce which Is destroying the prosperity of India , and In the direction of a policy which should restore to the natives by degrees the administration of their own country. But assuredly never In the history of the human race was rebellion , never was any form of revolt more Justified than It la In India today. If , therefore , reforms are not. to be Immediately introduced , If English carpet baggers and English profit mongers and English pensioners arc to do yet moro millions to death , in order that they may fill their pockets at ( he expense ot a helpless and patient people , then , I , as an Engllsn- rrun , whose ancestors and relatives have bad their share In the conquest and recon- quest of India , declare plainly that I hope to live to 'see the day when a well organized rising of the whole population will sweep aside forever the greed and iniquity ot British rule in India.
