Notable Addresses Delivered in r
Fanueil Hall, Boston, Last Night. e
'Boston, Augus7i 2.-Despite the
intense heat and humidity, more than a
two thousand persons crowded inEo
Fanueil hall last night to hear W.
Bourke Cockran, of New York, Gov.
E. F. C. Garvin, of Rhode Island and I
Charles Francis Adams, of this city,
address a meeting called by the New 3
England Anti-Imperialist league. t
"Adherence to -the democratic P
,platform," was the slogan of the r
Gov. Garvin said: "Half a cen- C
tury ago we came into contact with I
another Asiatic people. We found
them cut off from the world and con- r
seqtiently away behind civilization. t
We cultivated their friendship and S
led them by our example, advice and
:assistance to undertake the task of ad- C
vancing their own fortunes. Today,
:as a direct result of the wise and con
sistent action of two democratic ad- 2
-ministrations Japan ranks with other t
-civilized nations, possesses a consti- V
t-utional government adapted to her I

in all that goes to make a nation2
'than any country in the world, not
-excepting our own. Why could not <
.Admiral Dewey have been instructed I
to do for the Philippines what Coin
ano;dore Perry did for the Japanese?"
Charles Francis Adams spoke in
part as follows: "Important as the
question of imperialism is, I frankly
acknowledge that I am not one of
those who regard it as of paramount
importance. in the present canvass.
There are in my judgment other issues
s"'s mvolved more momentous and
quite as pressing. I maintain there's no
issue before the American people so
important or so difficult to meet as
the issue of curbing the senate. The I,
oligarchic body has got to be brought
hack to its proper functions in the
machinery of government, or disaster
will result. As was predicted in the
early days of the constitution. a por
tion. of thie legislature clothed with
a share of executive functions.- has
'tsurped functions one by one which
-did not belong to it. until even ap
-pointments in the judiciary have been
turned over to members of the sena
toriat ring. There is no department
of the government today in which
that irresponsible chamber is not ac
'tually supreme, under the operation
of w'hat ~is ~known as the courtesy
of the senate."4
-Congressman WV. Bourke Cockran
was greeted with enthusiasnm and
prolonged applause. "We have not
assembled to suggest any new exper
iment in government." Mr. Cockran
said; "We simply ask that the policy
of freedom, justice and liberty

both creditable and profitable to us.
which the Cuban people have found
a source of progress. a beacon of
freedom and a bulwark of order,
which the whole world applauds as a
most valuable contribution to civili

imperialstic policy which has proved
wasteful and discreditable to this
country in the Philippine islands.
