WOULD KEEP PHILIPPINES.
Jn Age Oarr In Mantis Advocates
Islands1 Inclusion In the TT. S.
Manila, Aug. 20. The Inclusion of
tne fiilllpplnen in the permanent terrl
tory of the United States, first as a ter
rltory nnd later as a State, was advo
cnted at the recent annual bannuet of the
jSf.mll.t Slcrrh'iiits Association by Judge
Klhert H. Gary, chairman of the board
or Ulrectori or tlio Culted States Steel
Corporation, who made a brief stay In
tho Philippines In the course of a trip
to the Orient.
"As n member of the business fra
ternity," he said, "I dare Insist that
the great majority of the business men
of the United Rtnle.i are not favorable to
tho administration or settlement of the
affairs of the Philippine Islands solely
for the purpose and with the aim of
satisfying uio demands of American
"And then It Is worthy of comment
that private capital of citizens of tho
United Ktntt'H In large amounts has been
Invested In the Philippines during the
last decade. The Islands could not hava
been developed except by the expendi
ture, of immenso sums of money; and
capital would not have come to the
country nor would It remain except
upon condition that tho stability of the
government and also the friendly atti
tude of the Inhabitants ure both assured.
Perhaps what Is needed at the present
time more thnn anything else for the ad
vancement of the best Interests of the
people of this country Is the confidence
of foreign Investors of money that their
Investments will be protected."
Tho speuker then urged the Filipino
seriously to consider tho question
whether It would not be to their be.
Interests to remain permanently under
the American Hag. Ho spoke of the
possibilities of disaster for an Indepen
dent Government, and closed by de
claring he thought It would be mutually
beneBolal If at some future dute the
United States had a territory or Stnte
designated as "Philippines."
