Vol. I. No. 186.
NO GROUND FOR WAR.
We feel safe in saying that our
people, after taking sober thought,
will conclude that there is not suf sufficient
ficient sufficient merit in the Venezuelan
question to precipitate this coun country
try country in a war with Great Britain.
It is hard for us to believe that
our government will in any way be
injured or menaced by the en encroachment
croachment encroachment of England upon the
territory of the Venezuelan repub republic.

tion nation in this hemisphere. Great
Britain owns more territory on this
continent than we do, and her
friendly feeling towards our free
institutions may be sufficiently in indicated
dicated indicated by pointing to Canada on
our very border. Before the Mon
roe doctrine can be applied and
enforced the fact must be clearly
established that the arbitrary ac acquisition

a European power threatens and
endangers the peace and satety of
our nation and the tranquil main maintenance

government. Suppose Great Brit Britain

session possession of Venezuela; how could
that endanger us? Since she has
been our friendly neighbor for so
many years in Canada we hardly
think she will interfere with our re republican
publican republican form of government by
extending her domain in distant
Venezuela. We believe in the
Monroe doctrine, but we do not
believe it applies in this case.
President Cleveland, by his bold
and uncompromising position in
the matter, has created a genuine
cyclone of American patriotism,
which 'ill sweep away much of
sectional strife and greatly
strengthen our military armament.
This will all do good. It is impos impossible
sible impossible to get Americans to prepare
for war in time of peace. Great
Britain is always ready. The best
way to prevent war is to always
keep in the best fighting condition.
Congress has taken the proper
steps in this matter and the whole
country says, Amen. Let us es
tablish a navy that will defy the
combined powers of the world, and
then we will have no fears, of war.
