Spanish Law and Spanish Art of Manila
Continuing his series of articles on
Transition Periods," Volcano Mar
shall writes as follows In tho Manila
American of February 2d:
Do you know which or course jou
do not that the more I familiarize and
fraternallzo with the procedures adopt
ed by tho Civil Commission the great
er becomes my admiration of the
work performed by It? ,
I know that tho captious assert In
the market place that the Commission
has enfolded Itself In tho Spanish Hag
and that Its members arc rapidly for
getting the parts or English speech in
tho acquirement of a knowledge of tho
Jargon so universally prevalent In this
land. In my Judgment such cnvll Is
to be deprecated It Is pernicious; It
Is harmful, retarding, as it docs, paclB
cation and conciliation.
In speaking as t have I am actuated
by the sternest Justice Tho proced
ures substantiate and corroborate what
1 acclaim. Ono incident serves as an
Illustration. Tuesday I received a let
heart trouble. That girl becamo mlr
rorcd on his mind. Ho pursued her
not as the villain In tho play, but with
laudablo and honorable Intentions.
They becamo acquainted. Tho ac
quaintanceship advanced, for they ox
changed beetle nut whether at tho
cockpit or at church services this his
torlan Is unable to say, neither is It
of moment. The maiden with the
wealth ot embrowned shoulders' expo
sure, and tho young man with tho
two game cocks became enmeshed In
bonds of love. They were married and
started housekeeping in an unfurnish
ed room with rlco nnd fish attachment.
Now the maiden, unlike 'I tipsy, had
a father. Ho was not consulted nliotit
the marriage, his dignity wns offend
cd It Is strange how some people In
this lire maintain dignity when they
cannot maintain anything else. Tho
father went to a Filipino who wns ac
quainted with the Iniquities of thu so
called Spanish law Tho father did
not want Justice, he wanted reenge

has frequently expounded law beforo

and Intricate legal questions were In

fortune. In tho letter he requested
that I write him alt the truth that I
could ascertain about law) era and law

In quest of the troth I called on tho
Solicitor General at tho Palace, which
of course Is in Juxtaposition to a cathe
dral and a monument I asked the of-

Court ot tue 1'hlllpplnes. Ho called
my attention to chapter 2. section 15.
of the regulations adopted by tho Com
mission, which. I suppose, nre dignified
by Borne by tile name of "laws." These
regulations delegate to the Supremo
Court power to examine and pass upon
tho qualifications ot all American law
yers, but explicitly provide that law
yers who hae practiced In Spain or
other Spanish speaking countries shall
not bo subjected to an examination
But wait n moment The Supremo
Court so I nm Informed Is composed
of four Americans and three Filipinos
These Justices for I suppose they
may be termed such without commit
ting an Infraction of the law of libel,

Hoard. It Is a t Ins-out board It Is
composed. marU jou, of two I'itlplnos
