M. Remarkable Rise
From Clerk to Premier
OF GERMAN PARENTAGE
daocees Attributed to Hie Initiative
in Tnrklsh-Kusslan War—Always
Refused to take any Part in Movo-
BMMSt Against Jews and Nihilist*—
His Great Popularity.
The rise of a railway clerk to th*
post of Premier ia a much more won
derful achievement In Russia than
R would be in any other European
country, and ror that reason the per
sonality of Sergius Wltte I* the moat
He oonquerod groat difficulties
before he cam*" to his present high
plac*. H« ta W German origin and
the "Russia for the Russian*" policy
found la that fact an almoat unfor
givable crime. ■
He comes from Trah*caucasus.
In 1849 he waa born at Tlllls of pa
rents who had emigrated to Rua
ala from the northern part ot Oer
many. H* was sent by his parents to
school at Odessa and astonished his
t*ach*r* most by his skill in mathe
matics and phyalcs.
He wanted to mix In the affair* of
the world. The army waa Impossible
for him because he waa not of noble
birth. For the same reason he had
to cruah out hi* desire to go Into
the navy. Commerce waa not to hla
liking and he decided to go Into the
■tale railroad department.
It was difficult for a man In his
position to attract attention In the
railroad servtc*, but M. Witt* did it
when oaly 17.
Th* war between Russia and Tur?
key brought up th* usual difficulties
In th* matter of transporting th*
troops and supplies to th* frontier.
The army tralna war* hopelessly In
adequate. Opportunities wer* lost
because It waa Impossible to g*t th*
•oidlers to th* frontier, and thoa*
who wer* th*r* found themselves
without food and other neoessary
M. Wltte undertook to straighten
matter* out aa far as lay In his
power. Nothing is so respected In
Russia as authority, but th* young
railroad employ* d*cid*d to make
himself famous by Ignoring *ll au
thority save that which came from
th« highest ton fee.
Ha sidetracked the train* of many
notable person* on their way to the
■•at of war and kept them waiting
for houra while the tralna carrying
the troops passed on to the Qen
erals who were clamoring for them.
In spite of the offence Involved In
his conduct the news of his efficien
cy reached the Csar, who personally
thanked him and awaited the close
of the war to reward him more sub
atantlally. After peace had been
declared M. Witt* was called to St.
Petersburg and appointed to a high
place In the railway department of
the civil service, which on account
of his birth had been shut agalnrt
him at the outset of his career.
He became director of the Russian
Southwestern Railway, the head of
the railway department and then by
rapid promotion Minister of Means
of Communication, Chairman of the
Tariff Commission, Minister of Fi
nance and Jast year Imperial Chan
cellor—the ilgheet honor which U
la In the power of the Csar to grant.
His efforts to develop Russia's
material resource* have reeulted In
marvellous growth. Five years ago
he reported to the Csar that, the In
dustries In his country had trebled
In value In twenty years. It was
he who instated on the State owner
ship of railroads In Russia. Under
hie Initiative great manufacturing
enterprises have been developed
and over fifty towns and eltles have
recently been lit by electricity. r
He pnt the currency of the coun
try on a gold basis and the equilib
rium of the budcets has been re
stored after many year* of financial
confusion. He has not hesitated to
plunge when he has seen that Rus
sia could really afford to spend the
money, and* one of the best Invest
ments he ever made for the country
was the purchase of the railroads
when the country was by no means
prosperous. In every case his in
vestments have been justified by
subsequent events. He appointed
committees to Investigate the acute
industrial and agricultural dep Tee
s'on of Russia. gtJl of theee com
mittees were made up of men .in
fluenced by him and their reports
might almost have been written by
nihilists, so drastic were they in

"When I ear that a battleship la
more useful, la a more profitable In
vestment even In peace than In war,
I mean that It la the greatest and
aareat preventive of war that the
centuries have aa yet brought
fortfc," pursued Adjnlral Evans
•lowly but vigorously.-"No one who
carefully studies and duly ponders
the question will raahly gainsay
Admiral Evans made the startling
declaration: "Had the United States
. possessed, prior to the Spanish-
American war, the navy that It pos
sesses to-day we would never have
had that war. Why? At that time
our navy was an unknown quan
tity at beat, and a comparatively
■•mall quantity—quantity and not
quality—remember at the worst.
Spain no doubt Joined with the rest
of the world in underestimating us
as a naval power. Hence she be
lieved that ahe was easily our supe
rior on the sea. Because she hap
pened to be mistaken Is hardly any
reason for ua to believe that some
one elae, should we permit our navy
to remain stationary In sis* and
strength. Is going to make the same
mistake In case ot war.
"We are now In a most critical
period of not only our own but the
i history of the world. Everything Is
i changing for better rather than for
| worse, tat ua hope. War and Its
I methods are changing Just as Is
buslneaa and every branch of human
activity. Bnt one thing will never
change and that la human nature In
a national sense."
"We have within the past few
years spread ourselves over a vast
territory, engendering vaater re
sponslbllltlea than we have htthertct
had la our national history. Our
navy, therefore, has to play the
dnal role of protecting those pos

of peace of allently signifying to he
world that such and such is a part
, of the United Btatee and must be
considered and respected.
"Now, nations are no reapector*
of nations unless the latter are pre
pared to enforce respect. Therein
: lies tbe chief value of a comprehen
, alve naval force. Olve ua fifty bat-
I tleshlps, with an appropriate com
plement of crulaers, torpedo boats,
j and other auzlllariea, and the
chanoea of our beng provoked to
break peace are one In a hundred.
"Hut," pursued the Admiral earn
oatly, "It takes time to build battle

"And yot," quickly added Ad
miral Evans, "there Is no advantage
In having all the battleships In fhe
world if the men behind the gun*
are poor marksmeL. Russia has
been supremely unfortunate In not
bow to ahoot straight. Ja
pan, conversely, has been fortun
ate, but she owes her good fortune
not to chance nor to any superior In
telligence, but to practice, unre

"As for torpedoes," he pursued.
"It Is Impossible to Inflict as much
damaga with a torpedo as with a ten

from a battleship; and for two rea

of reaching the mark with a torpedo
and the other being the greater

a hole la the aide of a battleship It
has yet to prove Its power to sink
one whenever It strikes. In the
much-siploited torpedo attack made
by tbe Japanese at Port Arthur, aa

only damaged three out of seven
teen vessels, and the latter were
again to action within less than ten
Continuing, Admiral Evans be
lieved that the United Stated owed It
to Itself as aa International power
to encourage the training of >O,OOO
young men annually in the naval
service. He believed no school coto
paratls wltL the American men-of

patrtotlam, and self-control.
Having himself seen the United
States Navy progress from sails to
steam and from oak to steel, having
seen Its guns evolve from crude
muscle loaders to the present
mighty agents of destruction with
which the Maine and her seven com

1877 and started for Japnn byway
In Europe he remained a year,
avlng the simple life and studying
hard while hn wan there. H* went
home to Japan, and the world did
not open very brilliantly to him at
the outset. Extrbnie modesty com
bined with a very robust article of
Independence was a handicap in th*
beginning of his career. He had
boen a government student sent out
to America, lie knew he had done

good deal of law. particularly Inter

of statesmanship was no gradual

For years Baron Komura had

Europe's State System After tfce
the Napoleonic Wars.
R was in November, 1114. that
th* famou* Committee of th* Bight
Power*—Austria, England, PraaM,
Prussia, Russia. Spain, Portugal
/»d Sweden- met at Vienna Und*r
the presidency of Prlnc* M*tt*r
nlch to draw up a treaty wMoh waa
to be henceforth the written law of
Europe. Th* necessity for such a
treaty waa pressing. Tfr* moment
**emed propitious. In the lawlea*
grasp of Napoleon Bonapart* Eu
rope had become a conglomeration
of stataa without fixed boundariee or
acknowledged rights to poll teal ex
istence. Th* old landmark* had
been swept away, the balano* at
power destroyed, a strong *tat* had
become weak, weak state* had b*-
com* strong. The armies of Rus
sia won In occupation of Poland.
Austrian troops held all of Italy **-
oopt Naples, English and Bw*dl*h
troops held Holland and Belgium.
English and Portuguese troop* h*ld
a large portion of Spain, the Prus
sian troops held Saxony, the troop*
of Wurtemberg and Uaden held th*
Rhine provinces. At length th*
hand which had wrought all thla
confusion was believed to hava been
effectually paralyted. The sooner
the normal state of things could be
restored the better. Such was th*
train of Ideas which led up to th*
Congress of Vienna.
It was Poland that formed the first
■tumbling block In the way of con
cord among the Powers. That un
fortunate country had been torn Into
three fragments In 1772 and divi
ded between Austria, Oermany and
Russls, the latter having the lion's
•bar*. Russia waa now in martial
possession of the entire country. It
waa the ehlvalrlc dream of the Rus
sian Emperor Alexander I. to repair
the partition and to replace the
Polea In their condition as a free
and constitutional kingdom under
Russian suseralnty. Hut all other
Powers objected to the proposal.
Their combined weight won. Pin
ally a compromise WHH arrived at.
It was agreed that a portion of the
Duchy of Warsaw should be divided
between Austria and Prussia, the
remaining portion (save Cracow,
which was to be s free city) receiv
ing a constitution, and being united
to the Russian crown as the king
dom of Poland Thus the sanction of
a ftreat European treaty waa given

that alnce there wax no Cuban State

to the United Hinlrs and that the lat

debt aecured on the cußtoma of the

era refiißcd to accept for their gov

over Cuba. representing that the
war avowedly had not been waged
for territorial aggrandizement, but
for liberation and order. It waa not
till October 27 that the Spanish
Commissioners accepted the Cuban
article*. The demands of the United
States In regard to the Philippines
and other Inlands In the East and
West Indies were presented on Oc
tober 31 Thoy Included the cession
of the entire Philippine archipelago,
as wall as Puerto Rico and Guam, the
United States agreeing to reimburse
Spain to the eitent of her pacific
expenditures for permanent Im
provements. To this Spain demurred
on the ground, among others, that
the capitulation of Manila on the
day subsequent to the signing of the
protocol of peace was void. She of
fered to submit the question to arbi
tration The United Btates refused
to recede from Its position, and on
November 21, announced Its final
offer to pay 120,000,000 In a lump

United State* would maintain In the
Philippine* an open door to all na

with It the admittance of Spanlih
ship* and Spanish merchandise on

to the mutual relinquishment of all

individual or national, for Indemnity
that bad arisen since the opening of
