wood cutting with two companions,
was frozen to death on Monday ??f the
blizzard, near Cool ?Spring, about 2
miles from Fredericksburg. He was
within a quarter of a mile of a dwel?

companions were too exhausted to
carry him farther.

No Imperial Desi??ns
In the address made at the Home
Market Club, of Bostou, President
Mi Kinly outlined the policy of the
Administration regarding the Philip?
pine??, In part he said:
"The Philippines, like Cubs and
Porto l.ioo, were intrusted to our
hands by the war, and to the great
trust, under the providence of ??od
and in the name of human progress
and civilization, we are committed.
"It is a trust we have not sought:
it is a trust from which we will not
flinch. The American people will
hold up the hands of their servants
. at home to whom they commit its
e\?'oution, while Dewey and Otis ami
the brave men whom they oonitiiiind
l will have the support of the country
in upholding our flag where it UOW
floats, the symbol and assurance of
liberty and justice.
"We hear no complaint of the re
latious created by the war between
this government ami the islands ??f
Cuba and Porto Kieo. There are
some, however, who regard the Phil?
ippine* as in a different relation; but
w batever variety of views there may
be ou this phase of the ijuestmn,
there is universal agreement that th?
Philippines shall not be turned back
to Spain. No true American cou
seats to that.
"F.ven if unwilling to accept then
lelves, ?t wtmld have been a weal
evasion of manly duty to requin
Spain to transfer them to some Otbei
power or powers, and thus shirk ou
own responsibility. F ven sf we had
SS we ?lui not have, the power to com
pel such a transfer, it e?>uld not hav<
been mad?- without the most Serion
international com plica turns.
MSoch a conree could not be though
?if. ami y? t hail we refuse?! t?> accep
the eessiun of them we should hav
bad no power over them, even fo
their own good. We could not ?lis
charge the responsibilities upon 11
until these islands became our? el
ther by conquest or treaty. Ther
was but one alternative, and that ?a
either Spain or the United ?Ma'
the Philippines.
"The other suggestions?first, ths
they should be t?>sned into the aren
of contention for the strife of natiooi
,d, be left to the anarchy an
chaos of no protectorate at all ? wei
too shameful to be considered.
"Our concern was not for territc
ry. or trade, or empire, out for tli
people whose interests and destin;
without our willing it, had been pi
in our hands. It was with this fee
ing that from *he tirst day tothela
not one woid or line went from tl
Executive iu Washington to our mi
i ta ry and naval commanders at III
ni la or to the Peace Commissions
at Paris that did not put as the so
purpose to be kept iu mind first aft
the success of our arms and tl
maintenance of our own honor tl
welfare and happiness end the righ
of the inhabitants of the Philippii
Islands.
"A reigu of terror is not the kit
of rule uuder which right action at:
?leliberate judgment are possible.
"It is not a good time for the li
erator to submit important ?piestioi
concerning liberty and goyernme
to the liberated while they are e
gaged iu shooting down their resc
"The future of the Philippine Is?
lands is now in tue hands of the
American people, l'util the treaty
was ratified or rejected the Kxecutiye
Department of this (?overnment
could only preserve the peace and
protect life aud property. That
treaty now commits the free aud en?
franchised Filipinos to the guiding
hand and the liberalizing influences,
the generous sympathies, the uplift?
ing education, not of their American
masters, but of their American eman?
cipators. Xo one cau tell today what
is best for them or for us. I know
do une at this hour who is wise
enough or sufficiently informed tc
determine what form of government
will best substrve their interests aud
our interests, their and our well be
ing.
"The whole subject is now with
Congress, and Congress is the voice
the conscience and judgment of tin
American people. Upon their judg
ment and conscience can we not rely!
I believe in them. I trust them. I
know of no better or safer humai
tribunal than the people.
"Until Congress shall direct oth
wise, it will be the duty of the EfigOO
utive to possess and hold the Philip
pines, giving to the people thereo
peace and order aud beneficent gov?
ernment, a , ording them every oppor
tnnity to prosecute their lawful pur
suits, eticouiaging them in thrift an<
industry, making them feel and knov
that we are their friends, not thej
