That was true before our war with Spain - it is still more true after it. To be sure, we as a people are better off than we were a short time ago; this is conformable to what this writer has long insisted upon, to-wit: that our competitive system must lead to disaster, t by a straight road, however, but by a wave-like path: comparative prosperity, alternating with steadily increasing adversity.
