  3. 3. Henry Cabot Lodge Of the sympathies of the American people, generous, liberty-loving, I have no question. They are with the Cubans in their struggle for freedom. I believe our people would welcome any action on the part of the United States to put an end to the terrible state of things existing there. We can stop it. We can stop it peacefully. We can stop it, in my judgment, by pursuing a proper diplomacy and offering our good offices. Let it once be understood that we mean to stop the horrible state of things in Cuba and it will be stopped. The great power of the United States, if it is once invoked and uplifted, is capable of greater things than that. <ul><li>conservative Republican </li></ul><ul><li>supporter of the gold standard </li></ul><ul><li>a strong backer of U.S. intervention </li></ul><ul><li>in Cuba in 1898 </li></ul>Massachusetts Senator (1893-1924)

  9. 9. Eventually several European nations followed suit, forcing China to sign a series of unequal treaties . Extraterritoriality guaranteed that European citizens in China were only subject to the laws of their own nation and could only be tried by their own courts. Eventually western nations weary of governing foreign lands, established spheres of influence within China which guaranteed specific trading privileges to each nation within its respective sphere. Spheres of Influence
  10. 12. Eventually the United States demanded equal trading status within China, and rather than carve out its own sphere of influence, simply announced the Open Door Policy in 1899. This stated that all nations should have equal trading rights regardless of spheres of influence. While this may have prevented the further expansion of spheres of influences, it did little to restore Chinese sovereignty. . John Hay U.S. Secretary of State (1898-1905) Open Door Policy
