In the interests  of justice it  is  as necessary  to  exercise the police power as    to  show charily  and helpful generosity.  But something can even now be done  toward the end  in view.   Thai something,   for" instance,   this  nation   his  done in regard to Cuba,  and is now  trying to do as regards San Domingo.      San Domingo    has now made  an  appeal  to us to help it, and not  only cvsry  principle  of wisdom,  but  every generous  instinct within      us  bids us respond  to the appeal.   The  Conditions  in  San Domingo  have for  a number of years grown from bad  to  worse,  until recently all  society  was on the verge of dissolution. Fortunately,     just  at this time a wise  ruler     sprang  up  in   San   Domingo,  who with his colleagues saw the danger   threatening  their  beloved  country,   and   appealed  to   the  friendship  of  then: great and powerful vieighbor  to    help  them.       The     immediate  threat came to them in the ������shape of  foreign   intervention.     The   pr.evioHis  ruleis of San Domingo bad  recklessly  incurred  debts,  and   owing io internal disorders she had no means .of  paying the  debts.     The  patience of  her foreign creditors had become exhausted, and at   least one foreign na-  sion.was  on  the  point  of intervention,  and   was  only  prevented  f'-.om  intervening by the official assurance  of this government that it would it-  S'.-lf strive,to help  San  Domingo   iu  her hour of need.
