Opis: Gunton's Magazine, 1891, Vol. 15 (Classic Reprint) - Gunton George

Excerpt from Gunton's Magazine, 1891, Vol. 15
Of course Spain affected to believe that our object was the conquest of Cuba, the Philippines, and eventually all other possessions belonging to European powers.
Shall we sustain the integrity of our declaration, or shall we justify Spanish predictions that we were "bluffing" and are really bent on conquest wherever we have the power
During the first few weeks of the war it seemed difficult for the press and friends of the administration sufficiently to emphasize their absolute adherence to the non-conquest policy. The Monroe Doctrine was appealed to in numerous ways as laying down the gospel of our territorial policy. Since Dewey's victory at Manila and the manifest disruption of Spanish power in the Philippines, however, a radical change seems to have come over the tone of the press. Instead of talking about the spirit and letter of the Monroe Doctrine, confining our efforts and influence to the development and perfection of democratic civilization in the Americas, it is breaking out with glowing predictions of the Golden Age of an extended empire. This kind of rhetorical gush is finding expression in leading Republican papers throughout the country, like the Philadelphia Press, Boston Journal and New York Tribune, and is finding echo in some Democratic papers like the Washington Times, Atlanta Constitution and Cincinnati Enquirer, and even in some Mugwump papers, like the New York Journal of Commerce. If the Manila victory should prove to be such a self-inflating event as to cause the American people to revolutionize their public policy, abandon their hitherto almost sacred Monroe Doctrine, and change from a policy of industrialism to one of militarism and become seekers of conquest and owners of colonies, it will conclusively prove that we cannot stand victory.
