110 ponnds, and the next day a paper
in Albany pot his weight at 130. At
this rate of increase he will be s giant

posed ' 'the extermination" of seven c
eight millions of human being as an al
ternative line of policy to be pursue
in the event of their refusal to submi
voluntarily to a foreign invader.
It is no wonder that the Hon. Wil
Ham H. Fleming, of Georgia, find
the question of ethic? and of honor in
volve?l in the present problem evoi
more interesting than the questions o
constitutional law or of political, mili

which they invited and accepted the
co-operation of the Filipinos as our al?
lies and profited by their services in
the earlier stages of tho cot llict.
The quotations which Mr. Fleming
makes from the OfBoinl correspondence
of these otHc.ers with the State and
Navy Departments are most suggestive
and instructive, and cast the strongest
light upon the moral turpitude iuvolved
in the substqnent change of policy on
the part of the administration when
the appetite for blood and conquest had

speeches, pro and con, and on the sub?

his follower?. Opponents of the ad?
ministration's policy quote freely from
the letters of our consuls showing the
agreements made and partly acted out
with Aguinaldo. Supporters of that
policy cite the dispatches from the
State Department refusing to make any
promises, etc. The apparent contradic?
tion is easily explained. U is only a mat?
ter of fixing the dates of the several
tranactions. In the early ?tage? of the
war with Spain our consuls and Dewey
freely accepted the service? of the Fil?
ipinos as our allies, knowing tbey
were fighting for independence, of
which our State Department was fully
cognizant, and thi? course of dealing
continued until reinforcements reached
