EUROPE
594 - WTD Jan. 7; ed:2/1 - The coup of Louis Napoleon was a plot de•
vised by despots of Europe in conjunction with him to crush liberty in
France and thus "bar out" all hope of progress elsewhere. The czar is
the soul of the movement, with Austria and Prussia aiding.

English newspapers are alarmed. They fear these events threaten England, and that it will be hard to grapple with the despots if they cannot be assailed at home.

Soon the issue will be made by the French people, and if the czar interferes, as he will, then the issue between despotism and freedom will be made.

"And can the United States be neutral? Will our people and government in such a conflict refuse to aid freedom? These are questions which we must, and which we ought to, examine wisely and well for the conflict is not far off."
