THE PRUSSIAN MENACE.
1 AN AMERICAN VIEW. ; While it is, as President Wilson urges. j the duty of the United States to remain 1 neutral, it is also for the welfare of the I United States lo si e, clearly what will ' happen to it -when the war is ended. ,Ie- ; clares Norman Haphood, in ' Harper's i Weekly.' I If the Allies win, we know uhat to i expect: England has long been in control !of the seas, Canada and the United ! States are like two lambs. We need no ; mighty armament. Great Britain respect-, 1 our ivishes in South America. She even ! accepted Cleveland's Venezuela roughness ; when she could so easily have wiped our ] navy from the sea-s. ' When Germany i wished t-o form a combination in favor of j Spain, the Kaiter was stopped by England. When the German Admiral at ' Manila sought the intentions of the- Bri--1 tbh Admiral in case of a clash, the British | Admiral is reported to have answered: | ".\dmiral Dewey knows what I will do." i There, is no doubt that. England's intlui em-e over Japan is used in favor of the j United States. ... it is because ;i. 1 peace-seeking nation rules the waves that iciir fortunate country has been saved from the burden of armaments. The day that ! Falkland's command of the ocean is d«jstioyed the. United States begins a large iiuiiiy and a tremendous navy. | IF THK AI.LIKS WIN. If the Allies iv in, Ihe re-nits will be i 1.

Alsace and Lorraine ought to be neutralised instead of given back to France. Hungary, and possibly one or tivo>-oiith German I and Austrian Slates may be made inclei pendent and neutralised.
