PHILIPPINES TO BE HELD
President McKlnley Takes a Firm Stand
Will Guarantee Forty Million Dollar Debt Not
Knowing Who .Holds the Bonds
Impression of a Trip.
Washington, Octobpr 28. Pro
sidnnt MoKinley Iihb decilod to
keep nil the. Philippine islnuds.
-The Uiiitoil Stntps will nssurao
$10,00 ,000 of tho Philippine dpot
in consideration of n quit claim
by Sp-tin. The American Ponce
Commissioners will bo instructed
to lay tho President's decision be
fore theSptui'di Commissioners nt
This bt'itemont of the Adminis
trntion program is luiulo on tho
biihet nutlwiity. It win given
out nft r toln's Cnbiuot meeting,
at which lb" Philippine qufstiou
was fully dUeiwed. Tho Piesi
dont's decision bud beou foro
shnilnwed, but ho had refrained
.Arnfullv from committing him
self. Anxious to execute the will
oi tho peopln he has been study
ing the sentiment of tho country
for months. When be went Wost
ho found himself swopt along by
tho full cuirout of expansion
sontiraout If tho President hnd
gouo to'Denvor, instead qfstop
piug at Omaha, ho might lmve
found expansionists demandiug
Ttie President has been inform
ed that the Spanish Commission
ers would demand n cash indem
nity if tho United States decided
to hold all the Philippines. Tho
Spanish contention is that this
country is not outitled to keep
anything but Manila. Tbo
Spaniards ndmit they are helpless
to prevent Utiole S-ini from taking
what ho chooses, but they main
tain ho should p-i good Amorican
gold for anything Ho keeps outside
In nbindoniug claims in con
nection with so-called Ouban debt
tho Spanish Commissioners throw
thomaolves on the mercy of tho
Aniericaus. The Proaideut has
been moved to pity by their plea.
He does not wish to havo tho
United States appear before tho
woild as tho robbur of a prostrate
and helpless foe, but fully realises
it would probably bo hopeless to
ask Congress for an appropriation
to pay Spain for a quitclaim.
Tho President has decided that the
United States can ufford to bo
gonerous with Spain in the settle
ment of the fate of ihe Philip
pines. Instead of nki) Contjress for
an appropriation to give the
Spnnish fie cms for tvhioli thoy
are crying, lie lias determined ti
assume tho debt f ub ut 8,000,
000 created iu 18;)(J. This con
sists of bonds b.... . m o per cent.
No one knows iuuiMi about them,
why they wero issued, how they
were disposed of or who holds
them uow It is roslized that
thoy will g'i to t)r as soon as tho
guarantoo o tho United States
becomes effuo 'vu, hut if Spain
gots any bonetit U im that advauco
this country is not to blame. It is
bolievod that tho Senate will rati
fy a treaty with a. provision as
suming suoh dobt. Iu Adminis
tration circles it is thought that
tho rovenuos of the Phtlipiues
will enable tho Govornmout to
meet tho in to rest and principal of
vtho bonds without burdening the
Utiited States proper.
One of the firet things to be
done may bo the refuuding of
these bonds in a security benriug
a Inwor rato ,of interest. Thnt
tuny bo one of. tho conditions,
winch will offset the udvanco ,in
value.' Admiuiatrntlou officials
don't know tub' extfat Philippine
debt. The Commissioners are
making inquires about it at Paris,
Jt is doolarod in Washington,
however, that tho Unitod States
will n it assume auythiug but this
issuo of $10,000,00J.
