Menage of the Preiident.
Mr. Wilson bai .gain delivered bis message
to congress la the form of an address, reading
his carefully prepared announcement of bis pro
gram to a Joint session. Its reception was such
as might have been expected, a respectful at
tention from all, and some enthusiasm from the
close adherents to the president's policy. The
several features of the program as disclosed are
those that have been publicly debated for many
weeks, on which the attitude of the president
has been stated on many occasions and which
are certain to excite sharp controversy. For
this reason his address contains none of the
elements of surprise or novelty In any particular.
Greatest emphaals is put on the plans for
Improving the national defense, along the lines
of a slightly Increased standing army, to be sup
plemented by the "continental army," definitely
outlined many weeks ago, and a considerable In
crease In the naval establishment, both In per
aonnel and number of vessels In commission. As
sociated with this general defense plan is the
president'! Idea of establishing a merchant
marine. These suggestions will be received at
lar by the congress, and debate on the defense
program Is not likely to be along partisan lines.
It will divide sharply the advocates of prepared
ness from the pacifists, with no regard for party
affiliation, although consideration In detail may
bring out some subdivisions of opinion among
those who are sincerely committed to the es
tablishment of adequate defense measures. That
the house committee, which will have the hand
ling of the matter, is dominated by the "big
navy" men la a point In favor of the administra
tion plan, while the provisions for the army will
very likely fall among similarly friendly bands.
The proposals for a merchant marine are not
o happily situated. In effect, they compre
hend a renewal of the ship purchase bill which
was defeated by the Sixty-third congress, after
a prolonged debate In the senate, and changes
made In the personnel of that body do not pre
sage a more favorable attitude towards the

Of much more immediate Importance Is the
treatment of the fiscal affaire of the govern
ment. Nothing whatever Is said of the vanished
surplus and the steadily mounting deficit, but
attention is rather gingerly called to the dimin
ishing treasury balance, and the need of greater
revenue. With a budget calling for a billion of
dollars, exclusive of the appropriation for the
postal service, and estimated revenue from pres
ent sources far below this figure, the president
finds himself confronted with a very serious
problem. His method for meeting the emergency

reference to the Philippines and Porto Rico la
far from definite as to purpose. Porto Rlcana
must have relief, conditions in the Island being
tow intolerable; the Philippine muddle will
probably be thoroughly ventilated before the ses
sion has progressed very far.
The only suggestion in the message not al
leady before the public Is that some legislation
te had to relieve the transportation Industry of
the country from the confusion into which It has
been thrown by reason of the conflict of fed
eral and state authority. No plan is offered
whereby this Is to be accomplished.
As a whole, the document is decidedly per
functory,' not up to Mr. Wilson's usual atyle,
and even lacking in some of the pedagogical
dogmatism that has characterised his former ut
t era nee. His promise of future discussion of
other matters of public Interest may hold some
thing of Interest, but his present pronouncement
is distinctively lacking In elements of decision.

Interests of the people alone Justify the cost.

What of the Philippines?
"" Daniel ft. William la Basset Magasla. """"
Formerly Secretary rhllippln Commission.
TO MOST Americans th Philippines hav been and
till ar terra Incognito. Despite this fact, bow
ever, few of our people hesitate to declare the
Islands a burden to us, and that we would be well rid
of them. Much breath has been wasted as to whether
or not we should hav acquired the Islands originally.
We did acquire them, and by destroying Spanish
sovereignty assumed the responsibility of establishing
and maintaining a government of law and order until
such tlms, at least, ss w could honorably withdraw.
While our occupation was not coupled with any
promts to grant th Filipinos Independence, then or
later, we did undertake te make their Interest our
first thought and to give them such participation In
public affair aa was consistent with good govern
ment Having solemnly pledged ourselves to this, all
talk of selling th Islands to some foreign power is
Idle, while none but renegades would countenance their
being taken from us, through war or otherwise, with
out a struxtle. Justice and decency require either
that such Islands remain an Integral part of our coun
try or that w eventually turn them over to the
Filipino people. No other Solution Is possible.
W acquired the Islands by conquest and purchase
from Spain. No native government wn destroyed,
for none In fact ever existed. Had we originally de
clared the Island a permanent possession of tho
United States, as we had an undoubted right to do
and as wss don with Porto Rico, much of the sub
sequent unrest snd agitation would hav been avoided
and the economic situation of th country would be
far in advance of what It is today. For soma reason
no such declaration was made, thus cresting a natural
impression on the native mind that sooner or later we
would withdraw In their favor. As a consequence,
certain elements of the population hav Indulged In a
constant and unreasonable clamor for lndependenca
lnstanter, with its Inevitable harvest of antagonism
and criticism of everything American and Its discour
agement of any considerable investment in Island
enterprises. Energy nd effort which might hav
been applied to advantage in th material regeneration
of the country and to th creating of a feeling of
confidence on the part of capital hav been dissipated
In endless talk and writings about "political ideals"
an dthe tyranny of American rule.
There la no question but that permanent occupa
tion, in some form, would be th sensible, logical
rours and to th beat interests of all concerned.
Th United States would thus acquire unprecedented
trad opportunities and a source of unhampered do
meatlo supply for th hundreds of mlllllon of dollsrs"
worth of tropical products now Imported annually
from foreign countries, while th Filipino would be
assured th continued blessings of good government
and that protection from themselves and from outslda
Interference which they can never hop to achieve
It may be argued that to retain the Islands would
be a breach st faith toward the Filipino people, and
that they do not consider It to their Interest that our
sovereignty continue. There would be no breach of
faith, for nobody with authority to speak has ever
promised independence to the tslsnds, nor ia It certain
that th responsible, property-owning element ther
would not gladly welcome our permanent occupation.
While It ia altogether probable thst ths present
day group of native politicians, encouraged by an
unthinking element among our own people, will con
tinue to ory for tmmedlat and absolute Independence
without though or car of consequences, signs are not
wanting that th rising generation, educated to a
broader conception of their opportunities and limita
tions, will seriously hesitate be for asking us to cast
them adrift upon the piratical sea of International
politics. It would b well for our congress, before
committing Itself to th Independence program, to
verify, first, whether those who now so vociferously
demand 'such action really represent th intelligent,
responsible thought of th community, and, second.
whether a yielding to such clamor would not prejudice
th welfare of the voiceless mssse of the people,
who hav everything to lose and nothing to gain
through a precarious self-government When Indepen
dence Is secured at the expense of good government
It I th common people who always pay th freight.
Turning now to the other alternative complete
withdrawal from th Islands and a surrender of con
trol to th Filipinos American sentment Is practically
unanimous that this should only be done. If at all,
when th native have qualified themselves through
education and training to establish and maintain an
efficient popular government. There are Indeed cer
tain Americans (some of them In th halls of congress)
so lacking In honor that they would have us, for
selfish ends, repudiate every obligation assumed upon
acquiring th Islands and Immediately abandon th
Filipinos to whatever fat might befall. Fortunately
for our self-respect aa a nation tb number of these
is negligible.
h.n that th. Ftllnlno ar to be srant"d
Independence when qualified therefor, ther remains
th altogether debatable question or wnen mis con
aki.. t iik.i.. rs arin. Up T.ft w.a of the onlnlon
wiuva - "
that this would requlr considerably longer than a
generation. That th Filipinos fisv not yet rescned
twm. . ii mitllneA .nd .r. not vet readv for Indenen-
denr Is axiomatic to very unprejudiced observer.
They lack unity of language; at least ten per cent or

Whll astonishing progress toward a general uplift
has been mad sine our occupation It I impossible
to expect any peopi in th circumstance of th Fili
pino to be fitted In fifteen years (or a much longer
period) for that highest expression of Individual free
dom and governmental capacity, elf-govmlng de
mocracy. Moreover, political Independence should fol
low and not precede economic independence. With
unbounded natural resources, th Philippines are to
day practically undeveloped and their people In no
position financially to maintain themselves as a ep-
rat entity. Whll I ymp,thli with tho Filipino
who sincerely aspire to be a "a nation among nations,"
I belkev thsy are mistaken In thinking their peoole
now ready to assume such a burden, or that It would
t to their interest to d so. It Is aa unpopular view
to express at this time la nstlve political circles, but
It nowls follows thst those who so believe and so
express themselves ar not batter friends of th Fili
pino people than tho others who, for various ends,
proclaim otherwise.
It would certainly be a. astute persou who could
tell why a democrat should feel on way about our
reaponalbllltlea In th Islands and a republican another,
Yet when the democ ratio party cam Into power It
