The Repairer of Reputations

Toward the end of the year 1920, the Government of the United States had practically completed the program, adopted during the last months of President Winthrop’s administration.

The country was apparently tranquil. Everybody knows how the Tariff and Labour questions were settled.

The war with Germany, incident on that country’s seizure of the Samoan Islands, had left no visible scars upon the republic.

And the temporary occupation of Norfolk by the invading army had been forgotten in the joy over repeated naval victories, and the subsequent ridiculous plight of General Von Gartenlaube’s forces in the State of New Jersey.

The Cuban and Hawaiian investments had paid one hundred percent and the territory of Samoa was well worth its cost as a coaling station.

The country was in a superb state of defense. Every coast city had been well supplied with land fortifications.

The army under the parental eye of the General Staff, organized according to the Prussian system, had been increased to 300,000 men, with a territorial reserve of a million.

And six magnificent squadrons of cruisers and battle-ships patrolled the six stations of the navigable seas, leaving a steam reserve amply fitted to control home waters.

The gentlemen from the West had at last been constrained to acknowledge that a college for the training of diplomats was as necessary as law schools are for the training of barristers.

Consequently, we were no longer represented abroad by incompetent patriots.

The nation was prosperous; Chicago, for a moment paralyzed after a second great fire, had risen from its ruins, white and imperial, and more beautiful than the white city which had been built for its plaything in 1893.

Everywhere good architecture was replacing bad, and even in New York, a sudden craving for decency had swept away a great portion of the existing horrors.

Streets had been widened, properly paved and lighted, trees had been planted, squares laid out, elevated structures demolished and underground roads built to replace them.

The new government buildings and barracks were fine bits of architecture, and the long system of stone quays that completely surrounded the island had been turned into parks which proved a god-send to the population.

The subsidizing of the state theatre and state opera brought its own reward.
