The decision upon this point ia oi
importance, as having- perhaps some
bearing1 upon the status of the peopl
of the Philippines, Porto Rico and
Guam. A year ago the decision was
reached to regrard the Porto Ricans at
entitled to the protection conveyed
by an American passport.but a forma
decision of the test case was prevent
ed throug'h the withdrawal of the ap
plication. The Fo raker act deter
mined the rig-ht of Porto Ricans as
"citizens of Porto Rico" to the pro
tection of the United States govern
ment. It is now held that the Spoon
er law conveys the same privilege to
the inhabitants of the Philippines.
The United States statutes "prohibit
the issue of a passport to any but
American citizens. But those latex
acts, the Foraker act and the Spoon
er act, impose obligations in their
turn, which may be regarded as quali
fying the original act, and may ena
ble the government to avoid a deci
sion upon the question of American
citizenship of the islanders.
At any rate, the circular' instruc
tions now in formulation, which will
be sent out to all United States diplo
matic and consular representatives,
will direct them to issue not certifi
cates, but genuine American pass
ports to the islanders.

CASCARETS are a sure cure for tape worms and those other pests of worms that make the lives of children
and their mothers miserable. Any variety of parasites that live in the human stomach or bowels, and feed on the
substance which should properly nourish the body, are dislodged by Cascarets Candy Cathartic, and exgelled.
One or two tablets usually drive them out, and persistent use is sure to do away with the unwelcome intruders.
Many children and older people suffer from worms without knowing it, and get thin and weak, although their
appetite is good. The best way to find out is to take Cascarets. Never accept a substitute!
