iflen had no voice in the government,
he said, demanded action by congress.

Ml government should be sot up there.
lie reviewed the recent great devel
opment in various branches of In
dustry ia the territory. With 100
t Hvas and cities and wealth amounting
1 $50,000,000, he said, there were 80.
4D0 white children of school age, hut

Mr. Bromwell (O.), who followed
j.1 r. Little, got the floor to comment
upon the recent speech of Mr. Wheol
r iKy.). In the course of his re
marks he paid a high tribute to the
Germans and elicited from Mr. Whoel-
r the remark that he hart no obje
lion to Mr. Bromwell making hims !(
rolid with his German constituents.
Mr. Bromiwell read a humorous poem,
the burden of which was Mr. Wheeler
would regret his speech when the
Germans of Kentucky went to the
volls in the fall.
Mr. Corliss (Mich.) then delivered
the second installment of his speech
in favor of the building of a govern
ment cable to the Philippines. He ar
gued against any consi deration of the
Commercial cable's offer to build a
able from San Francisco to Manilla,
denouncing the corporation as an ally
of the Eastern Extension Cable com
pany whose allied lines, he said, em
Israced a system which aggregates
nearly 70,000 nautical miles of cable,
i overing the most extensive and pow
erful cable and telegraph monopoly in
the world. He said their lines reached
very continent except North Ameri

cific Cable company, is to encircle the
globe and extend the influence and ad
vantage of its present monopoly i
the Pacific ocean and the far east.

At the conclusion of routine busi
ness, Mr. Burrows (Mich.) addressed
l.he senate upon the Philippine tariff
bill. He said that congress now waa
dealing with questions as they wtre
found today, and not as they had been
in the past, or might be in the future.
He felt that the nation was confrout
id by a condition and not by a theory.
"Wo hold," said he, "the Philippine
lelands by a title that cannot be chal
lenged by any court in Christendom.
We have become responsible for them
to tie nations of the world. The
pendW bill simply provides revenue
tvufficient to meet the needs of the
government of the Philippines."
Mr. Burrows reviewed the begin
ning of the war in the Philippines and
aid the "United States occupation of
the islands was with a due regard to
the government's International obli
gation. Mr. Burrows said the Fili
pinos deserved a good government,

Washington. Feb. 19. Among other
questions pertaining to the Philippines
discussed by Governor Taft in his tes
timony before the senate committee
on the Philippines, was the attitude
of the different religious sect toward
one another. He said that generally
the relationship is a friendly one and
that the Evangelical churches are
seeking to secure a foothold in the
islands. He a'so referred to the eccles
iastical courts, saying that under the
Spanish rule the members of the re
ligious orders could elect to have civil
rases in which they were concerned
triad in those courts rather than in
the regular tribunals. In reply to

said, are familiar with the constitu

not believe that Aguinaldo is amonv
those who have this familiarity.
Governor Taft also gave information
concerning the newspaper press '
the Philippines. "Are the newspa

independence of the islands?" asxed
Senator Culberson. "They are under
