ATTACK ON TAFT
ItacretarT StTtrely Arraigns Former
President for Criticism of
ISSUES REPORT OK ISLANDS
WA8HINQTON, Not. JS. Secre
tary Garrison of tbs War department
Issued a formal statement today
sharply arraigning former President
William A. TaU for baring lent bis
name to what are termed "state
ments mendacious in character and
mischievous in intent" with relation
to conditions In the Philippine
islands under the present administra
tion. Circulation of these state
ments,' Mr. Garrison charges, show
plainly "that the republican politi
cians are attempting to lay the foun
dation for campaign material with
respect to the Philippine islands."
' 'articular attention la s ven by the sec
retary to article written r.y O. Garf.eld
Joea and published In a Cailf imla news
paper, and later republished in ramrblet
form under tha till "l'nhajpy CnJI
tlona In the Philippine Islands," with an
Introduction by Mr. Taft. The Introduc
tion attributed the conditions desoriled
to the "blind and foolish policy of Presi
dent Wilson and Governor General Har
rison." barriioi'i Letter.
In connection with his comment Mr.
Garrison makes public a letter which ha
aays waa written recent y by Jonea to
the department asking where a news
paper market m!ht be found fjr a
"much better article'' whlA he had pre
jiared on 'The Filipinos and tha Keino
rrallc Regime." declared to be highly
favorable to the administration.
The statement follows:
- "It la becoming very plain that the re
publican politicians are attempting to
lay tha foundation for campaign material
w.th respect to the Philippine inland.
Thera have recently appeared a aorles of
interviews or article exhibiting a shame
)es Intention In thla matter. These stale
rnenta are memlacloua in character and
mischievous in Intent. Many of them
proceed from sources so Inconsiderable
as to carry little It any weight, even If
tindenled. Others, however, are fathered
ty men whose names and prominence
supposedly lend - weight to their utter
a noes. It la Inconceivable that even par
tlaan eal would lead these men to S
"Realising that the honor and good
faith of this nation were Involved In Its
relatione to tha Illiplno psople, 1 have
absolutely abstained from any partisan
comment or conduct with respect to this
subject Tha United States took over an
enormous responsibility which should be
carried out In the highest spirit of good
faith and altruism, and all those who
respect tha good name of this country
should at least refrain from misrepre
sentation and falsa statements Concern
Coeoelred la Beat Spirit.
1 "Tha government Instituted In the
' Islands toy tha United States waa con
ceived In tha beat spirit and has In the
main been carried out in the moat worthy
way. Such mistakes as have been made
were only such as are Inevitable In the
conduct of human affairs. That govern
ment has been continued In the same
'spirit by ths present administration, and
conditions, govemme ntally considered,
wer . never batter than they are In tha
Philippine Islands today.
"Tha bill which was pending In ths
last congress, and which will be brought
before tha next congress. Is exactly In
Una wltfh all that has heretofore bean
dona in the Islands, and Is simply ths
next proper logical atep to be taken to
ward developing tha people thereof for
elf-government. No honest reading and
consideration of ths measure can lead to
any other conclusion. Because ths pre
amble of that bill repeated In concrete
languasa that which has bean substan
tially slated to be the position or this
country from ths time of President Mo
lnley on down, It has been falsely labeled
an "independence" bill, and the Impres
sion has bean widely conveyed that It
alters la some vital, radical way the or
derly progress tha self-development of
th Filipino people. . Such an Interpreta
tion creates an absolutely fats Impres
sion. "President Taft, whan governor general
tf tha Philippine . Islands, waa ths first
one to aanounce that th etnotto of the
Americas administration was the Philip
pines for tha FUlplnoa,' H sproparty and
bitterly resented criticisms against him
for taking this position. Ha constantly
stated that thla was tha only position
which anyone, acting in good faith and
with tbs honor of his government la his
keeping, oould take; that from tbs very
heglnnlOsT thla was ths announced policy
ef thla country constantly Iterated and
reiterated by tha presidents of this coun
try, by Its representatives, and by Its
congress. No one had so plainly set forth
aa has President Taft tha malicious mis
representations, tha mendacious state
ments and the vicious aocaul ts that pro
ceed from those In the Philippine Islands,
v fcsj are not permitted to exploit tha na
tive an dlhs country for their own bene
fit. Taft Jeetlfled la attack.
-President Taft waa absolutely Justified
in bis bitter denunciation of those at
tacks, which makes It all the more amaa
Ing to find him Indulging In exactly the
same conduct toward those who are now
occupying positions of trust and respon
sibility I nthe Philippine government.
"There lately appeared a series of ar
ticles in a newspaper called tha Oakland
Tribune. Subsequently they were pub
lished In a pamphlet entitled The Un-
fcappy Conditions in the Philippine lal
and.' by O. Garfield Jonea, 'former PMI
Ipplne department of education, with aa
Introduction by ex-President William
Howard, taft. former governor general of
the Phlltpplnoa.' In he Introduction ex
President Taft aays:
" 'I have read with much Interest Mr.
O. Oarfteld JoneS' article on present con
dillon in the hPtllpplnes. published re
cently in the Oakland Tribune. It la not
" 'What he says of the demoralisation
la tha present soverfnmonL due ta tha
blind and foolish policy of President Wll-
and Governor General Harrison. Is
confirmed by every report that I receive
