Washington. D. C, Jan. 10.?Senator
Mason, of Illinois, occupied the atten?
tion of tlic^^H^mjai-Cu^-jiem-Vy-rrn-hottr
and a half to-day with a speech in sup?
port of his resolution declaring that the
United Slates will never attempt to
govern the people of any country with?
out their consent. In many respects
the sprei h was one of the most notable
utterances In the Senate thus far this
session. Rugged In language, pointed
and effective in illustration, Mr. Mason
commanded the attention of the Sen?
ate and of tho galleries from tho first
sentence of his speech to the apostrophe
to liberty, which formed his peroration.
Several times spontaneous applause
swept over tho galleries, but under the
stringent rules of the Senate It was
quelled quickly. It was several minutes
after the conclusion of tho speech be?
fore the Senate could proceed with its
business on account of the confusion In?
cident to tho congratulations which
ninny of Mr. Mason's colleagues has?
tened to extend to him.
"It is easy to drift with the tide."
began .Mr. Mason, "but it is'not al?
ways safe. It Is pleasant to remain
in the harbor when the storm Is on.
Infi s one times the storm within the
Inner conscience is more dangerous to
pence of mind than the storm without
the harbor is to human life.
"The simple resolution I have intro?
duced has nothing necessarily to do
with any treaty, so far as 1 am In
forrried, nor do I intend to speak of any
proposed t r< a I v.
"Tho resolution I present does not
Involve a question of law, hut Is a
question as to the future policy of this
republic. My resolution recites the de?
claration of Independence. I do not
apologize for the resolution?I regret
its necessity. 1 agree that you can, as
Lincoln .said in the long run, trust tho
people. I am willing to trust tho pein
pie, and I want the people to hear both
sid"s of the case before the verdict is
"Distinguished editors and statesmen
say the Republican purtv favors?gay^.
eriilng certain nations without the con
senl nf its people- Who dares speak in
advance for the party that speaks only
in Its convention? That party sprang
like a young giant from the womb of
conscience and made Its Brat lighr for
human liberty, ft has never bowed to
the storm of expediency, and if I may
be allowed to prophesy, T predict that
if tho delegates will go In again, the
rafters will ring again and again when
they demand the same independence for
the citizen of the Philippines as they
did two years ago for Cuba.
SPREADING FOR BKOAD MAN HI l( ?D.
"Do you say I am npeaking for the
Philippines? Yes, one word for th< m,
and two for ourselves. A black man
said to a. Senator the other day: '1
thank you for speaking of my race,'
and the Senator replied, 'I am speak?
ing one word for your race and two
for my own. Nothing ever dwarfed the
white ra^e so much as stopping for a
hundred years to keep the black man
down.' I may appear to speak one
word for the Philippines, but two for
my own people when I plead for the
broad manhood of the man who wrote
'All .lust powers of government are de?
rived from the consent of the govern?
THE I-AW OF COMPENSATION".
"We ought to begin to learn the In?
exorable law of compensation. You
cannot govern the Philippines without
taxing them; you have not yet their
consent and the proposition of taxation
without representations is made again.
Look out fqr tea parties?those little
semi-social functions are likely to
break out even there, for Mail Colum
blt end Yankee Poodle have been heard
in the archipelago.
"We may talk of it as we please,
but tbefc la nothing that satisfies the
human mifid in an enlightened age, un?
less man is governed by Iiis own coun?
try niul tho institutions of his own
government. No matter how easy may
be the yoke nf a foreign power- no
matter how lightly it sits upon his
shoulders, if ii Is not impose'! by the

CAN'T TEACH SELF GOVERNMENT
"We are now- asked to s*y to the
citizens Of the Philippine islands, 'You
poor. Ignorant creatures. you can't
govern yourselves, we will extend our
commerce, and we will do it for you.
You don't know how to tax youreelves.
and in order that we may continue to
exercise our Christian duty to you, we
win prevent your exercising sovereign?
ty?we will exercise that function our?
selves." Mr. President, they will never
learn to govern themselves while we

LIGHT THAT GUIDED KOSSUTH.
("When Kossuth wrote the declara?
tion for Hungarian independence he
said ho had in mind our own declara?
tion of Independence. For over loo y< ai
every lover of liberty has pointed to
this sentence within this resolution:
'That all just powers of government are
derived from the- consent Of the gov?
erned.' as a reason for their Ilkrlu for
liberty. This sentence has been a pillar
of fire by night and has stirred the
hearts nf the oppressed all over the,
world, in the light of this sentence
crowns have fallen into dust, ari.l the
foundatl >n of republics have been laid.
You ask for expansion. See how we
nave expanded in the time since this
sentence was written. Not only have
republics started up in place of mon?
archies, but monarchies have them?
selves gradually broadened into con?
stitutional governments, getting nearer
and nearer to the voice of the people.

S?1 V.J.OW EVASIONS.
" The other day when the distinguish?
ed Senator from Massachusetts asked
the. Senator from Connecticut (Platt)
what he was going to do with this sen?
tence that 'all just powers of govern?
ment are derived from the consent of
.tlie governed' he answered 'from the
CUlsent of s.imo of the governed.'

when wo all shall have mouldered In

and continue to burn, a menace to ty?

WHAT FILIPINOS ASIC.
"The Filipino is begging to treat with
us as to his own land; he acknowledges
our gallant service; there is no honest
commercial treaty that an honest na?
tion could ask that he Is not willing to
consent to. Jle wants liberty as we did
and when seventy million people have
heard his cry for mercy and Independ?

mother in the islands of the sea; the
fathers will vote as the mothers pray;
the poisoned views of selfishness will
neve had Its run, and God help the par- I
ly that urges war on the native who
defends onlv his liberties and his home.
UBERTY CAP NOT A CROWN.
"Ah: Mr. President, have we got to
fight and plead for those people as we
did for Cuba? Are we to hear Aguin
aldo and his followers called robbers
and cut throats. RS we heard of the
bravo Garcia and his followers within
the last twelve months In this chamber?
Why not make them our friends for?
ever instead of our enemies? Why
stingily withhold the jewel of Inde?
pendence, why not finish this war as
we began it. for humanity sake? 'Why
not witli a free and open hand give to
them what we hive promised to give
to Cuba? Then we have kept our prom?
ise, then we have hound them to us by
hands stronger than steel, and then can
we answer the slanders of Europe, who
called us land grabbers. Pointing to
Bedloe's island we can say: 'See, the
liberty cap is not a crown: sec, the
Goddess has turned on her pedestal
and. with her search light, swept the
continent: see. ten thousand miles
across the water, the seed sown at
Concord has taken root there and
Haunts its defiant flag of self-govern
juolit at Ihr- po' t iU r,f the Orient.'
QUESTION OF RIGHT.
'?That we have so far assisted the
Filipinos and are entitled to fair treat?
ment from them Is true; that by taking
possession in stress of war of a part of
the islands and driving the Spaniards
out has placed certain responsibilities
upon us, cannot be denied, ltut I con
lend there is no more right or nocessi
ty of governing the Philippines than
there Is of our governing Venezuela,
Brazil, Nicaragua, or any other South
American State, without tlie consent of
the people. Certainly we have no more
right to govern the Philippines than
we have Cuba. There is no such thing
a-, teaching the art of self-government,
with a Mauser gun. There is but one.
and "iily one way, to learn the art,
that is through the gate of responsibil
i:y. and along the rough ami rugged
read of experience.
EXPANSION AND EXPLOSION.
"But distinguished gentlemen who
claim n monopoly of patriotism, who
don't seem to observe the difference
between expansion and explosion, say
that we, who believe in getting the
consent of ltie governed before we gov?
ern them, want to give hack the Phil?
ippines to Spain. Every one who
makes the statement know* that we
wan: nothing of the sort. Mexico was
Invaded by the French, and we said to
them, 'go, it is covered by the Monroe
doctrine.' France withdrew her troops
and the brave Struggling republic is?
climbing up the scale of civilization?
slowly, 'on; surely, That is the expan?
sion i believe in. That is the imperial?
ism lhat Monroe taught us."
Referring to the statements that the
Americans intended io give the Philip?
pines liberty. Senator Mason said: *
"How is liberty to be established? Is
it to be done hypedermlcaWy, with a
13-Inch gun? Are not our men and
shi|>a lying off Hollo? Did not the
native who has been our ally drive the
Spaniard out? Are they not In posses?
sion of their own land, their own
homes? Are they guilty of any crime,
except the love of home and country?
Having worn the Spanish yoke so lon^
do you wonder at their fear of ours?
Shall we shoot them and burn their
homes, becauso God Almighty ha*

placed under arrest In October last,
and as a result of a preliminary hear?

have taken place. Senator Quay nnd

claimed in their defense in the pre?

The- opinion handed down by Judice
Sterrett is promised w th .? contradic?
tion of the Dlstrl st Attorney's ohaliertge
that the Supreme Court had no Juris?

that it Has such jurisdiction and sus?
tains the point by pr< vlous decisions on
that point. It says th iugh thai the
question of certiorarl "must be exercis?
ed in and of the admin stratlon of jus?

it is this court's duty to, in this eis-,
review the action of ti e court below,
in overruling the demurrers to some of!
the indictments and refusing to quash
"The orders overruling the demurrers
and refusing- to quash are merely in
terlocutorary," the opinion says, "and
no right to appeal therefrom, to any
court, lies until after conviction and
The court, therefore, is 01" the opinion
that it has no authority to review the
action of the court b low- on the demur?
rers and the motion to quash. The
court says the only other contention of
the petitioners that requires notice is
that they cannot have a fair and im?
partial trial In the Courl of Quarter
Sessions of Philadelphia county where
the Indictments are still pending on is?
sues of fact raised by the defendant's
Ideas of "not guilty." On this point
the court says:
"We cannot assent to this proposition.
On the contrary, we are satisfied that
the petitioners can and will have a fair
ami impartial trial in lIir?t court before
a competent and unprejudiced judge,
and a. fair and impartial jury. If we

Washington, D. C, Jan. 10.?It can
bo stated on authority that such news
ns has been received to-day from Gen?
eral) Otis is rather reassuring than
otherwise, as to tho situation In tho
Philippines, and that he made no al?
lusion to a hostile collision. He has
been instructed to use gentleness In
dealing with the insurgents and to ad?
vise and co-operate with Admiral Dew
ey. There is some reason to believe that
the present situation may be protract?
ed longer than would be naturally ex?
pected, and that there will bo no open
hostilities immediately, if at all. The
question has arisen here as to the ex?
act purpose to be served now In at?
tempting to seize Hollo. Originally It
was Intended to release the Spanish
force ihero besieged, but by tnelr evac?
uation of that place they have removed
that Incentive, and were It not for the
fnlse encouragement it would give the
Insurgents there is little doubt that the
1'niicd States troops would not. be
moved against Hollo.
Meanwhile the navy Is expected to
draw n cordon around the Island of Pa
nay, and also Luzon should it be deem?
ed necessary to do so, to prevent the
further supply of arms and munitions
of war to the insurgents. Probably the
