Only a few days ago there appeared
in the Independence Helge, one of the
hegt known and most widely circulated
j ?un?ais of Europe, an interview with
the celebrated Prof. Kudolph Virohow,
?if Ilerlin, the leader of (iermaii liber?
alism, upon the subject of the peace
conference at The Hague, in which he
s lid,in ?peaking of this country: 'Na.
fions aie led astray by a decisive idea
of glory and honor. Tho United State?
have lately offered a pitiable example
Of this. A 3i*/iliied laud has been
plunged info war by the criminal agita
tion of brainless demagogues and the
incapacity of rulers. The United
St ites has sinned agaim-t humanity ami
civilization Let u? hope that the
Americans have at last recovered from
'heir bout of intoxication and will re?
deem the error of their country. '
We do not know whether the Filipino
patriots whom leading Jingo and im?
perialist journals are in the habit of
stigmatizing as 'rebels,' upon the
ground that Mr. McKinley, having
b ought for twenty million? of dollars al'
Spanish 'rights of sovereignty and
jurisdiction" ever them,any resistance
on their part to hi? authority is ihos?
'rebellion' and punishable wi.h death,
have acpess to ?uch a document as the
American Declaration of Independence.
If so, they would read there with sur?
prise ?uch language as this: 'We hold
these truths to be self evident, that all
men are created equal ; that they are
endowded by their Creator with cer?
tain Inalienable rights ; that among
these are life.liberty and the pursuit to
happiness. That, to securo these right?,
governments are instituted among men,
deriving their just powers from the con?
sent of the governed. ' They might fur?
