Prominent Educator Gives His Yicws
Rev. HcCauley Has Just Returned from Trip
to the Group Autonomy Under
Now York, Jan. 17. A dispatch
to tho Herald from HonekoDg
Eov. Olay MoCnuloy, professor
theology nt Tokio, who recently
arrived from tho Philippines, says
that as tho result of his study of
the situation nt Manila, ho thinks
tlioro are only thrco ways for tho
United States to solve tho Philip
Tho first is annexation by forco
or purchnso. To ubo forco means
the mo3tdimtrous foroirjjn war in
Amnrictn history, onUiling great
loss oE mo aud expenditure of
rnonoy. Moreover, it would bo a
violation of national honor.
Pimibneo means tbo recognition
nf tho insurgents as allies of the
United States during tho war;
rewarding tho Filipino loaders
with officers' salaries; employment
of tho insurgents in military and
civil offices nnd also giving them
back pay as allioe for somo
months. Such n purohneo would
secure a compromising gain ot
doubtful teuuio. The AtnciicuuB
iu Mnnila are generally opposed
to aunoxation in nny form.
Tim second solution is a com
plete transfer of sovereignty from
Spain to a Filipinos republic nnd
the retoution by tho United Stntos
for hor own uoo of Manila buy
nnd port just as Uonckong is kept
by Uront JJritain. JLliis solution
means the exposuroof tho defense'
less Philippines to the creed of
the powers, with a consequent
noute crisis in Europo over far
EiBlom questions. This wny is
neither liouoralile or wise.
Tho third possible solution is
autonomy undr an American
protectorate. This menus nn in
dependent Filipino republic con
trolling tun ndministrntion of in
ternal affairs, tho United States
tnkinu charge of tho Supremo ju
diciary and foroign relations, such
us tho power ot making war or
treaties whilo having control of
Thia solution, Mr. McCauloy
thinks, might bring about n tute
lage which would result in tho fu
ture absolute indepoudouCH of the
island or voluntary annexation to
tue United tnt"B.
Tho third wny only, ho says,
menus pence and prosperity both
to tho United StnteB aud tho Phi
lippines. In nny cnBe, immediate
action is impnrntive.

"Yes, they have, but they will
