the Held remains passive in South Africa,
held at bay by two of (he smallest republics on the lace of thu cartlu while at
home, in spite of tlie large volume of trade
und apparent prosperity, her financial interests are in a state of instability not
seen since tlie Haling crush. All Kurope
is yelping al her heels, and the necessity
for America's friendship is recognized on
all sides. Paper* and people thut for
years have been ready with a jibe for
America's good will no longer make any

•'America," auys the Globe, usually humorous at the expense of all things trans-
Atlantic, "wilh a crop of 642,000,000
bushels of wheat, is especially in a position lo help us."
'Hie economic shoe already begins to
pinch the military foot. Not very seriously, but enough to suggest grave cogitations as lo what would happen if (Jreut
Britain would war wilh a great power.
The fact ihat lhe government has chartered so many transports has resulted iu
a lise in the price of bread, while coal is
rising by leaps and bounds to lamina
prices. It is such unpleasant results as
these thai silence the scoffer at things
American and induce such a vituperative publication as the Saturday Review
to say: "The Americans have had their
eyes open as to the possibilities of a foreign policy and are taking a sounder, besides a cooler view, of the situation. They
are not less friendly to us than before,
but tlie insincere element hns been eliminated and has left a reliable substratum
of good will," which concatenation the
Saturday Review under different circumstances would have construed into damning evidence of the insincerity of American friendship.
It must not be inferred that this view
is held by many of the sincere English
friends of America, who now point to
whnt they are pleased to term its great
friendliness as proof of what they have
always maintained.
With such a serious outlook for the
coining year, it is hardly surprising that
articles appear under tbe heading "Aro

the other hand, there is still a small section of the press and public which da-
rates its energies to senselessly abusing
