?w UNCLE SAM LENIENT.
According' to advices from both Paris
and Washington it seems Unit the
United States government will assume
control of the Philippine Islands on a
basis which should be very satisfac?
tory to Spain. According to these re?
ports the Spanish government will he
reimbursed for all money expended in
developing the islands, except in those
places now occupied by American troops
or controlled by the American navy.
This is an eminently fair and liberal
proposition and if the Spaniards have
an iota of common sense they will ac
cept it without undue parleying. No j
matter what the Spaniards may say
regarding the matter, it is plainly evi- !
dent that the great American republic
will not take advantage of its magnifi?
cent victory to impose onerous and un?
reasonable terms upon the vanquished j
With this matter disposed of the work
of the Peace Commission should be
greatly simplified. The question of Hie
disposition of the Philippines was re?
cognised from the very beginning as be?
ing the most dangerous ami knotty pro.
blem to be discussed. Undoubtedly the
fact that Spain would be forced to re?
capture the greater portion of the ar?
chipelago even If the United States
government should agree to renounce all
claim to the islands, will probably have
some weighl with the Spanish commis?
sioners when it comes to finally decid?
ing the matter. They will probably ar?
gue that it is belter to accept a given
sum from Uncle Sam than to take the
chances of gaining the whole territory
again by either diplomacy or further
It is quite eveldent thai the adminis?
tration tit Washington is disposed to
ti-at the dons with till Hie leniency
they deserve, and the Spanish com?
missioners will he exceedingly foolish if
they fail to take advantage of this fact
while they may. It has been shown
that neither bluffs nor the much vaunt
. ed Castilian diplomacy can accomplish
anything which the common sense of
the American Commissioners does nut
sanction. Spain has the worst end of
the situation and should diligently avail
itself of an opportunity to make the
best of it.
A GOOD-BYE AND A WELCOME.
