Congressman Jones Criti
cises Taft and Governor
DIVIDED BY DISPUTE
Murray Sharply Replies to
House Committee on In
sular Affairs Chairman
WASHINGTON', Jan. 28.—Division
that exists within democratic ranks
over granting independence to the
Philippines was emphasized ln the
house today when American adminis
tration in the islands was made the
subject of a severe attack by Repre
sentative W. A. Jones of Virginia,
chairman of the house committee on '
Representative Jones' suggestions
for Philippine independence, which
have been considered favorably by
President elect Wilson, were opposed
by Representative Sherley (democrat)
of Kentucky, while criticisms of
President Taft and Governor General
Cameron Forbes brought a sharp re
ply from Representative Murray (de
mocrat) of Massachusetts.
The speech of Mr. Jones was "both
a demand for independence and a se
vere arraignment of American admin
istration in the islands.
Representative Murray charged him
with having "slandered Cameron
Forbes" and "defamed President Taft."
Mr. Jones denied these charges, but
Insisted that the administration of
the islands had violated at least the
spirit of the laws governing the Phil
The dispute brought out the fact
that an investigation of Philippine af
fairs recently had been discussed by
the house committee on insular affairs,
i*but no action taken.
Representative Murray, a member of
the committee, declared that had he
known Chairman Jones intended "to
charge Governor Forbes with being a
grafter" he would have insisted on
having Governor Forbes brought be
fore the committee, where he could
reply to the attacks.
"I have not charged Governor Forbes
with being a grafter," retorted Mr.
"You have been unutterably unjust to
him in the speech you have made," said
Mr. Murray further declared many
members of the insular committee
"were wandering if it is wise to com
mit ourselves and the party" to sup
port of the Jones bill, which would
give the Filipinos independence in eight
years. He declared the United States
should not withdraw from the Philip
pines until it had made treaties of neu-
trality with other nations, so Japan
could not seize the islands.
