speech. He presented clippings from

practiced by the American troops upon
Filipinos. Ha did not vouch, ha said, for
tha accuracy af the reports and ba .dis
claimed aay Intention to criticise the Ameri

such cruelties when, men of culture and re

Mr. Teller said that, jn bis Judgment
tha day would coma when the United
States would clash with soma Asiatic or
Europssn nation in ths fsr eastern seas.
Then tha Philippine islands, held as they
are now, would ba a source of weakness
to this country, if treated by the United
Etatee.ae they ought to be. the Filipinos
at that time would be a source of strength
to this government.
At the conclusion of Mr. Teller's speech
a bill appropriating $8,00 for the relief of
trustees of Carson-Newman college at Jef

Mr. Mitchell of Oregon then addresssd
the senate in aupport of his amendment to
tha pending bill .to place certain articles

Referring ' to ' the argument that the
United. Sutes was bound to accord to all
nation the right to deal with the Filipinos
on tr asms basis as that enjoyed by
Americans,. Mr. ; Mitchell aald: "An open
door la the Orient Is all well enough, but
If, the price of It Js to be the surrender
of a principle, of the rlgtt t exercise the

These speculation are reflective of tbe

NEW YORK, Feb. 13. Former Attorney
General John W Griggs sees in the new

great step toward the realisation la the far
east of policies of which the United Btates
has been a determined 'and notable expo
nent, according to ths Herald. He said: -
"This treaty is apparently a carrying out
of tha policy enunciated by Secretary Hay

Into actual practice those Ideas for which

Great Britain and Japan say they hav In
terests .at stake and they announce, that
where there Is a coalition of power against

ance and that they will mutually exert
their Influence' in ' peace to aid each. The
agreement recite that -they seek to obtain
in China and Korea equal opportunities for
commerce of all nations, and tbat therein
is distinctly, to our advantage. Wa have
long stood for the. open door. ' '
"While we may welcome also tha provl-
lon concerning the maintenance of tha In
tegrity of the Chinese empire, which bas
been a steadfast object of our policy. It I
not certain- whether Russia will look upon
it with- eqpal favor. " I cannot tell bow it
will regard It, . Russia baa always held tb
door open to us. . She has avoided discom

to us in China. ..We have nothing to. com

Interests in Manchuria or elsewhere. As
It has constantly protested it Intention
to continue tbat policy, we have nothing
especially to fear.
"Tha treaty is in consonance with inter
national law and la not unique, although
modern parallels of it are rare. It bas
often occurred that two countries hav
agreed upon a .policy, of mutual defence,
but It ha become mora Infrequent, at gov
