"I think the Democratic party has
the best opportunity it has had in
many years. I feel that we will win
at the next election."
He was asked about the probable
candidate of the Republicans, parti

RElPOR~T ON PHTTJPPINES.
Secretary Taft Says American Ad
ministration is a Success-Pre
-dicts Bright Future.
Washington, Jan. 26.-Nine years
after the battle of M'anila bay See
retary Taft records the results of thre
Alerican oecuption of the archipel
.ago and forecasts the future of
Philippines in an exhaustive report
transmitted to congress by the presi-i
dent, with a letter written by the
chief executive, commending in the
highest terms the secretay's conclu
sions. The president declares that
ruin would have followed the. adop
-tion of any other policy towards the
Phillippines than that outlined by
William McKinley and carried for
.ward throughout the nine years, and
asserts triumphantly that there is no
brighter page in history than that
dealing wih the relations between the
strong and tihe weak in those is
l-ands. ~Be adds that the Filipinos
"have yet a long way to travel before

.Seeretary Taft's report records
lis observations on his recent visit
to the islands to the extent of near
ly 80 printed pages. Generally spa
ing the secretary is optimistie in a
high derree in treating of this sub
ject. m'-n thone'h he can not fix a
time for declaring the independence
of t1'e isl.ands. In aanswer to the
erities who have made "the most as
tounbding' and unfair statemients in
respect to the cost to the United
States of the Phillippines,'' he figur
es out a total annual expenditure of
$5,000.000, and denies the failure of
the Philippine policy. He says that
great changes have occurred in the
islands. The people are row anxious
to have American soldiers retained.
There is a hizh standard of adminis.
tration of justice. Nothing is more
popular than the constabulary. Ther
are no questions between the grovern
ment and the Reman Cath'olie church
unless the AzFpayan schism can b<
said to be involved. Peaee prevails ir
