eminent at borne, the civil r.uthorl'les In
th Philippines, aud abovo all our gallant
army bad to do their work amid a storm
ef detraction.- The army In especial was
attacked In a way which finally d d go:d.
for in the end it aroused tba hearty re
sentment of the great body of tho Amer
ican people, not against the army, but
against the army's traducers. Tba circum
stances of the war made It cne of pe
culiar difficulty and our soldiers were ex
posed to peculiar wrongs from their foes.
They fought in dense tropical Jungles
gainst enemies who were treacherous and
cruel, not only toward our own men, but
toward the great numbers of friendly
natives, the most peaceable and most civ
ilised among whom eagerly welcomed our
(.'rarity Hot Defensible.
"Under such circumstances, among 100,
000 hot-blooded and powerful young men
serving la small detachments on the other
side of the globe, it was Immpossible that
occasional Instsnces of wrongdoing should
Bot occur. The fact that they occurred In
retaliation for well-nigh Intolerable prov
ocation cannot for one moment be ad
mitted In the way of excuse or Justification.
All good Americans regret and deplore thsra
and the War department has taken every
step In its power to punish the offenders
and to prevent or minimize tha chance of
repetition of the offense. Bdt these of
fenses were the exception and not the rulo.
As a whole our troops showed not only
signal courage and efficiency, but great
bumanfty and the most sincere desire to
promote tho welfare and liberties of the
Islanders. In a aeries of exceedingly ha
rassing and difficult campaigns they com
pletely overthrew the enemy, reducing
then finally to a condition of mere brig
andage, and wherever they conquered they
conquered only to make way for the rule
of the civil government, for the Introduc
tion of law, and of liberty under the law.
When, by last July, tbe last vestige of
organized Insurrection had disappeared,
peace and anrjestv were proclaimed.
Civil Order Follows War.
"As rapidly as the military rule was ex
tended over the inlands by the defeat of the
Insurgents, just so rapidly was it replsced
by the civil government. At the present
time the civil government Is supreme and
the army tn the Philippines has been re
duced until It Is sufficient merely to provide
against tbe recurrence of trouble.
"In Governor Taft and his associates we
sent to the Filipinos as upright, as con
scientious and as able a group of admin
istrators as ever any country has been
blessed with. With them and under them
we have associated ths best men among
tho Filipinos, so that' the great majority
of the officials. Including many of tha
highest rank, are themselves natives of tha
Islands. The administration is corrupt
ibly honest; justice is as jealously safe
guarded aa here at bom. The govern
ment la conducted purely Ir the interests
of the people of the Islands; tbey are pro
tected in their religious and civil rights;
they have been given an excellent and well
administered school syctcm, and each of
them now enjoys rights to "life, liberty and
tbe pursuit of happiness" such as were
noTer before known In all- tbe history of
''The congress which bas just adjourned
has passed legislation cf high Importance
and great wisdom In the interests of tha
Filipino people. First and fororr.ost, it
conferred upon them by law the present
admirable civil government; In addition it
gave them an excellent currency; it passed
a measure allowing the organization of a
native constabulary; and It provided, in the
Interests cf tho Islands, for a reduction
of 25 per cent In the tariff of Filipino ar
ticles brought to this country. I asked
that a still . further reduction should be
made. It was not granted by tha last con
gress, but I think that In some shape It
will be granted by tbe next. And even
without it the record of legislation in the
Interests of tbe Filipinos Is cne, with which
we have a right to feel great satisfaction.
"Moreover congress appropriated $3,000,
600, following' the precedent it s-t when
the people of Porto Rico were afflicted by
! sudden disaster; this money to be used
I by the Philippine government in order to
meet the distress occasioned primarily by
the terrible cattle disease which almost
annihilated the carabao or .water-buffalo,
the chief and most Important domestic
animal In the islands. Coming at this dis
aster did upon tbe heels of the havoc
wrought by the Insurrectionary war great
suffering bas been caused; end this misery
for which this government is in no wsy
responsible will doubtless in turn lncresss
the difficulties of the Philippine govern
ment for the next year or so.
"In consequence there will doubtless here

and there occur sporadic Increases of the
armed brigandage! to which tha Islands
hsve been habituated for time Immemor
ial, and here and there for their own nur-
posea the bandits may cbooso to style them-
smves patriots or Insurrectionist; but
these local difficulties will be of little
consequence save as they give occasion to
a few men here at home again to try to
mislead our people. Not only his the
mllltsry problem In the Philippines boen
worked out quicker and better than we had
dared to expect, but the progress socially
and In civil government bas likewise ex
ceeded our fondest hopes.
Peculiar and Delicate Problem.
"The best thing that can be, done in
handling such a problem aa that in the
Philippines, to peculiar, so delicate, so
difficult and so remote, is to put the best
man possible In charge and then give him
the heartiest possible rupport. and the
freest possible hand. This Is what bas
been done with Governor Taft.
"There is not In this nation a higher or
finer type of public servant than Governor
Taft. He has rendered literally Inesti
mable service, not only to the people of the
Philippine Islands; but also tbe people of
the United States, by what he has done
in those islands. He has been able to do
it because from tho beginning he bas been
given absolute support by the War depart
ment under Secretary Root.
"With the cessation of organised re
sistance the civil government took Its po
sition of headship. The army in the Philip,
pines is now one of the instrumenis
through which Governor Taft doea his ad
mirable work. The civil government, of
which Governor Taft Is the head. Is su
preme, and It will do well In the future 'as
it has done In the past, because it will
be backed up in tbe future aa It bas been
in tbe past."
"Remember always that In the Philip
pines the American government has tried
and is trying to carry out exactly what
tbe greatest genius and most revered
patriot ever known In the Philippine
islands Jose Rizal steadfastly advocated.
This man, shortly before his death. In a
message to'bis countrymen, under date of
December It. 1896, condemned 'unsparingly
the insurrection of Agulnaldo, terminated
just before our navy appeared upon the
s-'ene, and pointed out the path his people
should , follow to liberty snd enlighten
ment "8peaklng of the Insurrection and of tha
pretense that Filipino Independence of a
wholesome character could thereby be ob
tained, he wrote:
When, In apite of my advire. a movement
was iwdun, t ottered of ray own accord, not
ouiy my srrvices but my lite, and even
my gouU name, to be used In any way
ihey niieht biieve effective in suiting the
i-ebellion. 1 thought of tha aiaasier which
ould lollow the buccms of the revolution,
and 1 deemed mysvii fortunate if by any
aacrilice I could block the progress ol such
a ii!iiet8 calamity.
My countrymen. I hsve given proof thst
I was one woo sought liberty for our coun
try, and I still seek it. 11 ut as a first
step I Insisted upon the development of the
people in order that, by means of edu
cation and labor, they wight acquire the
proptr Individual character and force which
would make them worthy of it. In my
writings 1 have commenced to you study
and civic virtue, without which our re
demption does not exist. I can not
do it-mi than condemn, and I do condemn,
this absurd aud savage Insurrection punned
behind my hark, which diahonors lis be
fore the Filipinos and discredits us with
those who otherwtae would argue in our
behalf. 1 abominate its cruel tl, a and dis
avow any kind of connection with It, re
gretting with all the sorrow of my soul
hat these reckleaa men have allowed
themselves to be deceived. Let them re
turn, then, to thetr homes, and may God
pardon thus who have acted in bad faith.
AppUrm Mar Straaalr haw.'
"This message embodied precisely and
exactly the avowed policy upon which tho
American government baa acted In tbe
Philippine. What the patriot Rlsal said
with such force In speaking of tha insur
rection before we came to the islands ap
plies with tenfold greater force to those
who foolishly or wickedly opposed tbe mild
and beneficent government we were in
stituting in the Islands. The Judgment of
the martyred public servant, Rlsal, whose
birthday tbe Philippine people celebrate,
and whom they worship as their hero and
ideal, aets forth the duty of American sov
ereignty, a duty from which the American
people will never flinch.
"While we have been doing these greet
and beneficent works in the Islands, we
have yet been steadily reducing the cost at
which they are done. The last congress
repealed the law for the war taxes, end the
War department bas reduced I he army from
the maximum number of 100,30, allowed
under the law, to nearly the 'minimum of
"Moreover, tbe last congress enacted
aome admirable legislation affecting the
army, passing first of all the militia bill
and then the bill to create a general staff.
The militia bill represents the realisation
of a reform which had been championed
Ineffectively by Washington, and bad been
fruitlessly agitated ever s'.nce. At last we
have taken from tbe statute books the
obsolete mllltla law of the revolutionary
days and have provided for efficient aid to
the national guard of the states. I believe
that no other great country has such fine
natural material tor volunteer soldiers
as we have and it is the obvious duty of
the nation and of the states to make such
provision as will enable this volunteer
soldiery to be organised with all poss'ble
rapidity and efficiency in time of war, and,
furthermore, to help ia every way the
national guard in time of peace.
"The mllltla law enacted by congress
marka the first long step ever taken In
this direction by the national government.
The general-staff law Is of immense Im
portance and benefit to the regular army.
Individually I would not admit that the
American regular, either officer or en
listed men, is inferior to any other regular
soldier in the world. In fact, if it were
worth while to boaat, I should be tempted
to say that he was the beat. But there
must be proper training, proper organiza
tion and administration in order to get the
best service out of even the best troops.
This is particularly the case with such a
small army aa ours, scattered over so vast
a country. We do not need a large reg
ular army, but we do need to have, our
small regular army the best thst can pos
sibly be produced. Under the worn-out
snd Ineffective ergsnlsatlon which baa
hitherto exlated, a sudden atratn la ab
solutely certain to produce the dislocation
and confusion we saw at tha outbreak of
tbe war with Spain, and when such disloca
tion and confusion occurs It Is easy and
natural, but entirely improper, to blame
the men who happen to be In office. Instead
of tbe system which Is really resopnslble.
"Under the lew Just enacted by congress
this system will be chsnged Immensely for
the better, and every patriotic Ametlcan
ought to rejoice, for when we corns te tbe
army and the navy ws deal with tbe honor
and intereata of all our people, and when
such is tbe esse party lines are aa nothing,
and we all stand shoulder to shoulder as
Americana, moved only by pride In and
love for our common country."
