^From the reJm|n>^J^_^^l^^1ltV^*|^ap^?-r
contemporary, the Flllplno^Wdepen
dencla. it seems that the reports of
American victories In the Philippine Is?
lands have been greatly exaggerated.
In fact, if the assertions of this paper
may be taken as true. Uncle Sam's
forces only "indirectly assisted" the
insurgents in defeating the Spaniards.
This will be a terrible blow to the
credulity of those foolish persons who
had been taught to believe that Dewey
smashed the Spanish fleet In Manila
harbor, and who honestly thought that
American soldiers drove the forces of
Spain from Cavite.
Of course, the Americans may dissent
from the views expressed by the Inde
pendencia, to the extent of thrashing
the obstreperous Filipinos as soundly as
they thrashed the Spaniards. As it is,
these followers of Aguinaldo are get?
ting entirely too fresh. When the
United States fleet appeared before Ma?
nila they promised all sorts of loyalty
and devotion to the cause of Uncle Sam,
if he would only save them from the
direful effects of Spanish oppression and
misrule. Perhaps the Americans were
foolish intrusting these protestations of
affection to the extent of arming the
Filipinos, but the damage is now done,
and the horde of senil-barbarous natives
seem to 'be in a proper humor to turn
the arms they reclved from the Ameri?
cans upon their benefactors and deliv?
This is a most unfortunate and com?
plex condition of affairs, but so long
as Dewey remains on the scene, a ma
? jority of the American people will
have confidence in the final satisfactory
settlement of all the difficulties that
may present themselves.
Mrs. Grannis is another personage
' who might have saved herself a large
,consignment of trouble by refraining
from making a few remarks.. Accord?
ing to a declaration from this distln
? guished lady, the speech she made at
? Cooper's Union, in New York, has been
V Widely misunderstood and misquoted.
Mrs. Grannis should learn from this
| that unless her remarks are so plain
that a wayfaring man, though, a fool,
.;^?iay understand them, she had better
keep her mouth. People who do not
; talk are seldom m'3qiioted.
It is a noteworthy fact that some of ;
. the best and most influential newspa?
pers of the State of Illinois are not
; wearing turned column rules on ac?
count of Governor Tanner's indiet
The announcement that there is to ]
be no delay in the trial of Quay & Co.,
?' .will probably come in the nature of a
i severe "jolt" to those persons who have
? been confidently predicting that the
.-whole matter would be dropped, and
f that the indictments brought in by the
^Pennsylvania grand Jury would be
||l>roductive of no practical results. It is
julte eveident that the Senator's enc?
ode* arc hot itpnnhjj-; trfll+'i *-T>f1
?k for ?mjad^ffa'torjal courtesy at
IJai ls said that Hon. "Coin" Harvey's
Uection tour will be accompanied by
e of that gentlemav's loctures. Some
consolation may be found In the fact 1
that neither hearing the lecture, nor
contributing to Mr. Harvey's fund is
Mr. l.emmy Eli Quigg >s another woo.
begone and battered victim of the late
Spanish-American war. His "finish."
however, was caused by a lack of
Republican votes, rather than by a lack
of "proper food."
