It is difficult (o understand how any
citizen of the United States, much less
a descendant of Revolutionary stock,
can tolerate the thought of perma
nently denying the right of self-gov
ernment to the Filipinos. Can we
hope to instill into the minds of our
descendants reverence and devotion
for a government by the people,
while denying ultimately that right
to the inhabitants of distant coun
tries, whose territory we have ac
quired either by purchase or by force?
Can, we say to the Filipinos, "Your
lives, your liberty and your property I
may be taken from you without due
process of law for all time," and ex
pect we will long glory in that fea
ture of Magna Charta, which has be
come incorporated, in substance and
effect, into the constitution of every
state, as well as into the Fourteentht
Amendment to the constitution of the
United States? Can we hope for the
respect of the civilized world, while
proudly guaranteeing to every citizen
of the United States that no law shall
be made or enforced which shall
abridge the privileges or immunities
of citizens of the United States, or
deny to any person the equal protec
tion of the laws, and at the same time
not only deny similiar rights to the
inhabitants of the Philippines, but
take away from them the right of
trial by jury, and place their lives and
the disposition of their property in
the keeping of those whom we send
to them to be governors? We shal?
cei.ainly rue it as a nation if we make
any such attempt. Viewing the ques
tion even from the standpoint of nat
ional selfishness, there is no prospect
that the twenty millions of dollars
expended in the purchase of the is
lands and the six hundred and fifty
millions said to have been since dis
bursed will ever come back to us. The
accident of war brought the Philip
pines into our possesion and we are
not at liberty to disregard the respon
sibility which thus came to us, but
that responsibility shall be best sub
served by preparing the' islanders as
rapidly as possible for self-govern
ment' and giving to them the assur
-ances that it will come as soon as
they are reasonably prepared for it.
There need be no fear that the asser
tion so often made of late, that wve
have nowv become a world power, will
then be without support. ')urs is a
world power, and as such it must be
maintained, but I deny that it is at
all recently that the United States has
attained that eminence. Our coun
try became a world power over a
centtury ago, when, having thrown off
foreign domination, the people estab
lished a free government, the source
of whose authority sprung, and was
continuously to proceed, from the will
of the people themselves. It grew
as a world powver as its sturdy citi

prosperity denied them in their own
countries, spread over the face of the

test, however, against the feeling,

have assumed in the world, we must
take part in the disputes and broils
of foreign countries; and that because
we have grown great we should in
tervene in every important questioi,
that arises in other parts of the world.
I also protest against the erection c4
any such military establishment as
would be required to maintain the
country in that attitude. We should
confine our international activities
solely to matters in which the rights
of the country or of our citizens are
directly involved. That is not a
situation of isolation, but of indepen

ship, and while we have always sym
pathized with the people of every na
tion in their struggles for self-gov
ernment, the government was not
created for a career of political or
civilizing evangelization in foreigi
countries or among alien races. The
efficient work we can do in uplifting
the people of other countries is by tha

The general occupation of our citi
zens in the arts of peace, or the ab
sence of large military arnmamen'ts,
tends to impair neither patriotism nor
physical courage, and for the truth
of this I refer the young men of
today to the history of the Civil war.
For fifty years, with the exception of
the war with Mexico, this country
had been at peace. with a standing
army most of the time of less than
ten thousand men. He who thinks
that the nation had grown effeminate
during that period should read the
casualty rolls of the armies on either
side at Shiloh, Antietam, Fredericks
burg and Gettysburg, at Stone river
and Claickamauga. I would be the
last man to pluck a single laurel from
the crown of any one of the military
heroes to whom this country owes so
much.. but I insist that their most
heroic deeds, proceeded indefinitely
more from devotion to the country,
than from martial spirit,

Wm. Kirmse, a member of the

was taken suddenly ill Thursday
night with cramps and a kind of
cholera. His case was so sever that
he had to have the members of the
crew wait upon him and Mr. Gifford
was called and consulted. He told
them he had a medicine in the form
of Chamberlain's Colic. Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy that he thought
would help him and accordingly s.ev

result that the fellow was able to
be around next day. The incident
syeaks quite highly of Mr. Gifford's
medicines.-Elkoder, Iowa, Argus.
