Excerpt from Value of Spanish-America to the United States: The Promotion of American Commerce: How to Make the Monroe Doctrine Effective: The Extinguishment of the National Debt in a Few Years, Etc

The political power of this country resides in the people. All questions, therefore, of general interest are here referred for decision to the 'collective wisdom' of the nation.

Whoever may seem to lead the public mind in any great movement is virtually an organ, and his thought an inspiration of the popular will.

For nearly half a century the question discussed in the following pages has occupied the attention of our statesmen, and on several occasions has been gravely considered by the Government. Again and again postponed, it has recurred, and will continue to recur until the body of the people shall be aroused to the wisdom and necessity of finally disposing of it.

Brought prominently to notice by recent events, its importance seems now to be more generally recognized. From the close of our late war to the present hour, thinking men have been seeking the best remedy for the acknowledged evil of European intervention in American affairs, and for the deterioration of American commerce. The Spanish-American States, under the pressure of a more immediate interest and anxiety, are also enquiring: 'How shall we secure to ourselves the blessing of future peace, commercial prosperity and exemption from European interference?'
