VOLCANO MARSHALL TELLS FILIPINOS

The Manila American of January 2G this reasonable demand on the part of

Periods" written by Volcano Marshal.
I havo a distinctive advantage over
tho editor ho thinks for the public,
while I think for mvsclf. ho Is busily
engaged In molding public opinion,
while my opinion Is already molded.
Dear reader, do jou know what Is tho
hardest thing In tho world to do? No?
Well It Is to mold public opinion It
Is more onerous to mold public opinion
than to mako out of a boloman a
tractablo American citizen, and If It
Isn't, Pm an addled egg being relish
Ingly devoured nt a fiesta.
It Is dimcult after an editor has ex
pended much brain and tissue energy
In molding public opinion to havo It
stay molded. Public opinion Is fickle.

My reason for locating tho cockpits
near tho managers houses, I think,
needs a word of explanation. On near

manager's house is remote from tho
church. About it Is a large area of
land not given to tho raising of cm.
The amplitude of the vacant grounds
would permit of tho Filipinos ceolng,
