IGREAT BRITAIN AND THE CONTINENTAL…

I GREAT BRITAIN AND THE CONTINENTAL POWERS. The majority of people in this country probably did not accept the suggestion that Germany was supporting Turkey in her provocative attitude towards Britain, but in any event it was gratifying to secure an official assurance that Turkey had nothing to hope for from Germany. At the same time we received the intelligence that France and Russia were supporting the represen- tations of the British ambassador, and, comparing this information with our ex- perience of a few years ago, we are able to congratulate ourselves upon the increasing friendliness with which we are regarded by continental Governments. From another point of view, the support which Britain has received from continental capitals, is particularly gratifying. The Sultan's ulti- mate resource has always been the exploita- tion of the jealousies of the Powers, but in this instance that expedient has failed him, and it is very much to be hoped that it will never again be present to enable the Porte to outrage the canons of European civilisa- tion in any part of that which Burke described as the wasteful and disgusting Empire of the Turks."
