Excerpt from The Monthly Review, Vol. 3: April-June, 1901 Concerned with general principles. There was no definite plan before the House, and except in the speeches of Lord Lansdowne and the Duke of Devonshire, and to some extent in that of Lord Wolseley, no effort was mad e to work out in detail the general ideas of the different speakers. All that was attempted was to arrive at the general principles which should govern the solution of the problem how to secure a military administration efficient for its purpose and at the same time consistent with the universal supremacy of Parliament. The problem is a difficult one. It arises in some form or another in every State, for the army must always be the servant Of the State. But the difficulty is most acute with us. For, where the form of government is essentially autocratic or oligarchic, those in authority have commonly had some military training, or, at the worst, are not wholly ignorant of the military require ments of their country. Moreover, the Continental system of compulsory military service gives some military insight to every male citizen and makes him less impatient with the peculiarities of the soldier's mind than the English civilian is apt to be.
