NEW HAVEN. Conn., Nov. 30.
Former President William Howard
Taft, tn a statement made public here
tonight, characterizes Secretary Gar
rison's arraignment of htm for his
attitfude on Philippine affairs as "un
just, vehement and unmeasured. '.'
Mr. Taft says that there has not been
the slightest tinge of partisan feel
ing in his interest in the Philippine
problem. "It seems to me," he says,
"that I have not been unmindful of
the necessity for standing by this
democratic administration in na
tional crises without regard to party
The statement in part follows:
"Mr. Ilolmsn and Mr. Loomis of the
Oakland Tribune asked me, when In 8an
Francisco in September, to comment on
Mr. Jones' article. I did not ace Mr.
Jones or hold anv communication with
Mm before his article was published. It j
was sent in manuscript to me at Ban
Francisco, where I first saw and read
It. What he sa!d as to the demoralisation
of the present government, due to the
elimination of Americans In the civil
pcrvlce'and the Interest of Filipino politi
cians in controlling Mr. Garrison's action
had come to me from many other sources
I knew to be reliable, and I therefore,
wroto a short article Bay Ins so. The
letter of. Mr. Jones which Mr. Garrison
published greatly injures Jones' credibility
as a witness and T greatly regret that he
should put himself In such an equivocal
and indefensible position. '
Model t'nlnnlm Serrlre.
"The justice of the general description
of the bad effects of the present policy
In the Islands, to which I referred In my
comment, does not, however, depend on
the credibility of one witness. The suc
cess which attended our policy tn the
Philippines was largely due to the admir
able quality of the civil servants who
were the guiding force In the bureaus and
departments. It was a model colonial
service, made up. of men who knew the
language, the people, the history-of ths
government nnd its aims.
"In October, 11U3. 'the new policy was
introduced. It Involved the separatlon.of
Uovernor General Forbes and all the com
missioners and substitution of men with
no Philippine experience whatever. Mr.
Harrison went to Manila with the Filipino
delegate, Mr. Quesffn. He announced
publicly that Queion had secured his ap
pointment, lie gave It out that he Hid
not care for American advice and only
wished to confer wltn Filipinos. His
partisan attitude was shown by his
declaration in the press In Honolulu, that
he took a sardonic pleasure in turning

Frank Carpenter, executive secretary
of the islands for ten years and assist
ant for years before, was transferred to
the Moro governorship with whose duties
he was not familiar. .This waS in order
to make way for a Filipino In an office,

which are greater than those of any
other bureau position. '

"The official record shows .that be
tween October, 1913, when Governor Gen
eral Harrison landed, and January 1,
1914, 193 Americans were separated from
office and that by July 14, 1914, the num
ber separated had increased to 476, and
that all of these were olficlally reported
to have rendered satisfactory service.
"In addition to these I am informed
by Dan R. Williams that Mr, Taylor, di
rector of agriculture; Mr. Stewart, di
rector of prisons; Mr. Cotterman, direc
tor of posts; Mr. Hastings, member of
the Manila Municipal board; Mr. Bow
ditch, secretary of the Moro province;
Mr. Robertson, director of the Philippine
library; Mr. Smith, chief of the mining
division of the bureau of science; Mr.
Robelln, chemist of the bureau of
science; Mr. Kearney, chief clerk of the
bureau of posts; Mr. Reardsley, chief of
the 'postal savings - bank division: Mr.
Gee, chief clerk of the division of public
works bureau; Mr. Cobb, supreme court
recorder, and Judge Crossfleld, of the
court. of first Instance, resigned because
of cut In salaries, and uncertainty of ten
ure. Cmlr Demoralisation.
The policy of eliminating thase strong
and effective Americans created de
moralisation which showed Itself almost
at once. I have not space to elaborate
the Instances. By transferring the office
of public lands from Sleeper, an expert
who was rapidly making certain the cre
ation of a sinking fund to meet the
seven millions trlars lands bonds to a
Filipino lnsurrecto general named Tlnlo
who had no experience of any kind
and who In sta- months had to be re
lieved after a trial for malpractice and
acquittal, this Important achievement Is
made very doubtful. The arrearages In
collections from leases of friars' lands
are said to have exceeded WO.WO pesos,
due to inefficiency.
"Similar casea of Inefficiency occurred
tn the bureaus engaged in attempting
to suppress the. dangeraus rhlnderpest.
In conducting the hospital. In collecting
Internal revenue. It usually takes some
time to show inefflcleney due to change
because of original momentum, but these
were almost immediate.
A reorganisation of the Judiciary en
tirely unnecessary and most wasteful was
effected to give more places for Fili
pinos. My authority for these results
Is in statements of Desn Worcester, Vice
Governor Gilbert and Pan E. Williams,
all of whom are in the islands snd know
them well. In addition many others have
confirmed these views.
I am utterly opposed to the Jones bill
and have always been opposed to it. Its
promise of Independence is certain to
mislead the Filipinos into thinking it Is
near at hand. Its elective senate will di
minish the power of the American execu
tive most injuriously. Its requirement
that appointments be confirmed by the
senate will make the governor general
completely subservient to the Filipino
politicians and will eliminate all Amer
ican guidance In the bureaus and de
partments. "I was personally engaged in Phillip
pine work for four years and supervised
It for eight years more, end I can of
course not rid myself of a pcrsonsi re
lation to It. 1 am profoundly anxious to

Kitten Whirls for Nine Hours
Inside Flywheel and Still Lives
HARTINGTON. Neb., Nov. 30. (Spe
cial.) Additional evidence concerning
the proverbial "nine lives'' of a cat has
been furnished by an incident which
occurred In this city one day last'week,
and which Is vouched for by the most
reliable witnesses. A kitten at the Great
Northern mills climbed Into the InsUe
rim of the big fly wheel and feel asleep.
The engineer did not notice the kitten
when he started the engine In the morn
ing and for nine consecutive hours the
little creature, held In Its perilous posi
tion by centrifugal force was whirled
round and round on the giant flywheel at
the rata of ninety revolutions a minute.
It was still alive when evening i sine anil
the engine was stopped for the nlKht.
The kitten traversed the circumference
of the wheel 4S.N times at lightning
speed. Although alive, the kitten was In
a stunned condition and was unable U
stand on its feet, hut a little nursing on
the part of the mill men revived It and
It Is now as well as ever.
The enulneer taya othrr animals have
strayed Into the rim or the fly wheel and
have sailed away through space, but the
cat Is the only antiiKil that has lived
through it all.
Enjoy life! Don't stay bilious,
sick, headachy and constipated.
Most old people must give to the bowels
some regular help, else they suffer from
constipation. The condition la perfectly
natural. It is Just as natural as It Is for
old people to walk slowly. For age Is
never so active as youth. The muscles
are less elastic and the bowels are
muscles. . .
So all old people need Cascarets. One
might as veil refuse to aid weak eyes
with glasses as to neglect this gentle aid
to weak bowels. The bowels must be kept
active. This is important at all ages, but
never so much as at fifty.
' Age Is not a time for -harsh physics.
Touth may occasionally whip the bowels
into activity. But a lash can't be used
every day. What the bowels of the old
need Is a gentle and natural tonic. One
that can be constantly used without
harm. The only such tonlo is Carcareta,
and they cost only 10 cents per box at
any drug store. Advertisement

of the republican campaign. This Is a
great Injustice to me. I hope for a re
publican administration to reverse the
present policy, but I never would seek
a political issue tn the Philippines if It
could be s voided I had no party when
I was In the Philippines at that work.
, Working: for Filipinos.
"We appointed as many democrats as
republicans. We were working for the
Filipinos snd the credit of our own
country snd my deep Interest In the
Philippine problem has never had the
slightest tinge of party feeling. I do
not think 1 am much of a partisan gen
erally. I think I have given fairly sub
stantial evidence by my appointments!
and my treatment of party opponents
when in office that my partisanship is
not blind.' It seems to me that I have
not been unmindful of the necessity for
stsndlng by this democratic administra
tion In national crises without regard to
rarty consideration. Mr. Garrison's lan
guage la unjust, vehement and un
measured. I think when he recurs to
It in the future he will regret It."

100,000 miles of ROAD performance over any and every kind of roads that the country knows,
level and hilly, smooth and rutty, hard and muddy!
Such is the proof that Studebaker gave in the most sensational ROAD test that any STOCK car
was ever subjected to. J
"Make 1000 miles inside of 48
hours" we said to our Dealers ;
"let's see how this Studebaker model
will stand up in such a test"
And 100 Studebaker Dealers started
cars STOCK cars, mind you.
And they covered 101,565.66 miles!
They did the distance in the average
time of 36.6 hours. At a speed aver-'
ging 27.73 miles.
And and THIS is the wonderful
fact of the entire Run the 100 cars
running over ev y known type of
road, over every known kind of
country, up mountain sides and hills
that make most cars labor, and

Never has there been a more deci

of a car's stamina and POWER and
dependability on the ROAD. It
wasn't a SHOW drive over nice
roads. The drivers had to make a
fixed distance in a set time. And
they had to drive over the very
