Weekly News Summary.
(Continued from Pago Ten.)
nent colonies there wo should long
since have inaugurated a policy assur
ing to the people of those islands sta
ble government and their ultimate in
dependence. But oven if there is to he
an admitted change in our institution
and form of government and, a wide
departure from the old land mark of
political truth, that all governments
instituted among- men derive their
just powers from the consent of tho
governed, and if it he admitted that
we are to embark upon the dangerous
and desperate policy of colony hold
ing and subject governing, to none of
which do we agree, even then we
could not give our assent to the pass
ago of the pending measure. The col
onial plan set up by this bill is un
just and illiberal in tho extreme." A
comparison of the trade with the Phil
ippines with the cost of maintaining
the army is made with the assertion
that at the end of the next year the
Philippines will have cost the United
States $450,000,000. The report further
"says' that the secretary of war, in effect,-
made the tax law for tho Philip
pines and thus exercised greater pow
er ' than most kings. Continuing, it
says: "The seoond section, in effect,
declares that the Philippin islands
are foreign 'territory to the extent that
all importations therefrom into the
United States shall pay the same rates
of duty as are provided in the existing
tariff laws of the United States,
known as the DIngley tariff act. The
Dingley tariff act has proven itself to
be a trust-breeding measure. We wit
ness daily the great trusts, born of
Dingley tariff law, so manipulating the
manufacture and the prices of goods
that our people are forced by them so
pay at our own homes and' in our
own markets higher prices for their
manufactured goods and commodities
than the same goods and commodities
are manufactured by them and, shipped
abroad and sold for in tho foreign mar
kets of tho world. We do not believe
,that the trade we are now obtaining
or that we are likely to obtain under
our operations in the Philippines is
worth what we are paying for it."
The report then shows that the United
States shared in the Philippine trade
last year to the extent of ?5,427,500,
representing profits to our government,
or people, of about $1,085,541. "This
paltry sum," it says, "is insignificant
when we consider the other side of the
account. It has cost us more than
$85,000,000 to maintain our army in
the Philippines for the past year. Other
nations, without incurring the expense
of a dollar toward that end, are get
ting $48,000,000 worth of the Philip
pine trade. We will have expended
when the next year closes, at the very
lowest estimate, for the maintenance
of our array in the Philippines and
our operations in the orient not less
than $450,000,000. And this does not
include the immense increase in naval
expenditures and the $20,000,000 paid
to Spain under the treaty of 1899."
The casualties, both of United States
troops and insurgents, are referred to
and the report then concluded: "The
casualties which nave occurred in the
effort to enforce the policies of tho
majority in the islands are of such ap
palling magnitude that it should shock
the public mind, and such a list of
casualties .would In nowise refer to or
include those ol our soldiers whose
health has bPdn permanently broken
down and of many others whose rea
son and intellects have been shattered
and ruined by protracted service in a
torrid zone. We are squarely In op
position to the methods and policies
of tho majority of the committee in
its efforts to deal with tho Philippine
islands. We do not believe that the
people of those islands can be made
citizens of our republic without gross
injustice to our people and without do
ing violence and perhaps ireparable in
juries to our Institution, nor can we
hold them as subjects without tho most
radical changes in our form and
theory of government, which we arc
unwilling to see inaugurated."
Tho Philippine Salary List.
Tho war department has supplied
members of congress with a state
ment of civilian expenditures in the
Philippines. The salary list is espe
cially interesting because it gives the
public an idea of the fat jobs provided
for political favorites by the new pol
icy of imperialism. The Filipinos will
havo to foot the bills, and while do
ing so extract all the comfort possible
from the knowledge that tho list will
steadily grow In size:

ity report in thdse words:
In the opinion of tho undersigned
tho passage from Key West to Cien
fuegos was made by the flying squad
ron with all possible dispatch, Com
modore Schley having in view the Im
portance of arriving off Cientuegos
with as much coal as possible in the
ships' bunkers. The blockade of Cien
fuegos was effective.
Commander Schley in permitting the
steamer Adula to enter the port of
Clenfuegos expected to obtain infor
mation concerning the Spanish squad
ron from her when she came out.
The passage from Clenfuegos to a
point about twenty-two miles south
of Santiago was made with as much
dispatch as was possible while keeping
the squadron a unit.
The blockade of Santiago was ef
fective. Commodore Schley was the senior
officer of our squadron off Santiago
when the Spanish squadron attempted
to escape on the morning of July 3,
1898. He was in absolute command
and is entitled to the credit due such
commanding officer for the glorious
victory which resulted in the total de
struction of the Spanish ships.
The court recommends that no fur
ther'proceedings be had in the matter.
The opinion of tho judges of the
court has aroused very general criti
cism throughout the country.
