Up War Expenses.
The authoritative declaration was

the Island of Porto Rico is to be held
as a permanent possession of this
country as the price of war. The sub
joined practically official statement
was made to a representative of the
"Porto Rico will be kept by the
United States. That is settled and
has been the plan from the first. Once
taken, it will never be returned. It
will pass forever into the hands of the
United States, and there never has
been any other thought. Its posses
sion will go toward making up the
heavy expense of the war to the
United States. Our flag, once run up
there, will float over the island per
manently." The same authority says the future
of the Phillippines is a matter of devel
opment, and that so far there is no
certain policy adopted regarding these
islands. They are subject to devel
opments in the war situation in the
Pacific. It was intimated, however,
though not definitely asserted, that the
Ladrone Islands might follow tho fate
of Porto Rico and become our perma
nent possession, being valuable as a
coaling and supply station for our
.ships when en route to Eastern Asia.
