The House having under consid
eration the Philippine tariff bill,
Hon. M. R. Patterson delivered the
following remarks Tuesday, Dec.
17 th, 1901:
Mr. Chairman, in a notable address at Ann Ar
bor, ex-l'resident Harrison closed in these re
"In conclusion I propose this sentiment: God
forbid that the dav should ever come when in the
American mind the thought of man as a consumer
should ever submerge the old American thought of
man as a creature of Uod ana endowed witn ina
This noble and inspiring thought of a distin
guished soldier, a profound lawyer, and a pure
statesman will fall unheaded upon a part which
be once honored, held now in the grip of a sordid
commercialism which it dare not shake loose, if it
would, and which, bids it to pass this un-American,
unjust, hasty, and wholly indefensible measure.
Ostensibly the bill is to provide revenue for the
Philippine Islands, but its true purpose and mean
ing is only thinly veiled by Its title. Instead of i
bill "temporarily to provide revenue for the Phil
ippine Islands, and for other purposes," it should
read, "A bill to fasten the protective tariff, and its
resultant system of trusts more securely upon the
American i eople, and for no other purpose."
Opposed as we are to the general tariff law as ap
plied to foreign countries, as being grossly unjust
both to the American consumer and producer, we
- are in still greater measure opposed to its applica
tion to any part of our own territory. We can not
assent to the doctrine that any part of American
territory, wherever situate, is foreign to the Amer
ican laws and Constitution. It is little wonder
that statesmen belonging to different schools of
political thought should deplore the departure as
contemplated by this bill from well-established
historical precedents and rules for governmental
action. Well may the American people pause at
the rapid assaults made upon constitutional gov
ernment and the repeated efforts to graft the off
shoot of monarchy on the fair tree of the Republic.
The Supreme Court in its latest decision, known
as the "Fourteen diamond rings case," holds that
importations from the archipelago to the United
States are not dutiable, because the Islands are
American territory and not foreign under the
treaty of Paris. Congress now proposes to make
thera foreign by passing this measure, relying up
on the majority of one. The court seems to have
no difficulty in determining what is and what is
not American territory until Congress passes a tar
iff law, and then by a clear majority of one it may
be relied upon to reverse its decision and to de
clare as foreign that which it had before declared as
domestic. The question which lovers of liberty
and constitutional government will ask is, What
shall be the end of it all? For, if Congress should
see fit to place a tax upon all goo Is from Oklahoma
or Xew Mexico entering the States of the Union,
such a law, if precedent is followed, would be de
clared constitutional by a majority of one.
Some of tbe American people wno have been in
the habit of supposing they were an inseparable
part of the Republic would be made to realize
their error, and those wonderful countries clamor
ing for space on the flag for two more stars to rep
resent sovereign States would see their high hopes
perish, as they would be inadmissible to the Union
by a majority of one. All honor to those judges
who have refused t follow the devious and peri
lous windings of these opinions, and who have de
clared that no tariff bill ,assed by Congress can
amend the Constitution of the United States or
alienate one foot of American soil. But in sub
mitting to a decision giving Congress absolute au
thority over our new possessions, and making its
will the supreme law of tbe land, we shall still in
sist that it shall not be used except in fairness and
moderation with due regard to the rights of our
own people and the rights of the islanders who have
involuntarily been brought under our dominion
and control. Applause.
We insist that the tariff schedule prepared by the
Philippine Commission should not be validated by
Congressional action, for it is less flexible and more
prohibitory than that of any other enlightened colony-holding
nation of the world. We insist, if we
must keep the archipelago, that its products shall
enter our ports free of duty and that absolute free
trade shall prevail between the United States and
all her possessions, and we demand it, whether the
protected interests of this country are Injured or
not, as the only true rule of right between a nation
and its colonies. Or, if free trade shall not prevail,
we demand that an autonomous government be
erected, so that the Islanders may say what, If
any, the tariff rates shall be on goods which enter
their ports; or, if this be denied, and the schedule
prepared by the Philippine Commission should be
made effective by Congress, and the- revenue thus
derivsd istobe expended'for the benefit of tie
people on the islands, we then insist that on prin
ciples of common justice they should have a part
in determining how this revenue should be expend
ed, which the projxjsed measure denies them. Ap
So far as the importations from th Philippine Is
lands into the United Stales are concerned, the
Pingley tariff law, which this bill propose to ap
ply to the productions of the islands, places a pro
hibitive duty upon hemp, tobacco, abd sugar, which
constitute their most valuable commodities, and we
protest against it as the worst form of a mediaeval
colonial policy an affront to. the moral sense of
mankind as well as antagonistic to the just laws of
So far as importations from the United States to
the islands are concerned, onerous tariff duties are
imposed by the Philippine Commissi in on raw cot
ton and all its varied products, on agricultural im
plements, hardware of all description, and. in
short, upon every article necessary for the develop
ment of the country. Thus does the alluring pict
ure vanish which the Republican party drew of tbe
tiade advantages which this country would enjoy
with these possessions, an 1 thus by the operation
of this bill are the ports of both the United States
and the Philippine Islands closed, the one against
the other. .
The work of legislation for these islands, Mr.
Chairman, should not begin with this wrong,
which all the military force we may send against
them will never undo. It is a breach of interna
tional good faith and places our country in a posi
tion where not only may its declarations be ques
tioned by foreign powers, but invites discrimina
tion and prohibition on tbeir part against Ameri
can trade. We demand the open door to Ghint,
but close our own to ourselves and to all the world.
It places us in the frpnt rank of selfish, grasping
nations and fixes upon the Republic with a writ
ten Constitution, every word of which is living
protest against this measure, tbe odious system of
coercive monarchies. For one, I am not willing to
thus surrender the honor of the Republic to the de
mands of the protected favorites of government who
are clamoring for the passage of this bill.
When we govern a willing people by our own sys
tem of laws and apply the rules of conduct to them
by which we are governed, and do not tax them
without representation, we have the true type of
republicanism. When we govern an unwilling
people by different laws, and apply to them differ
ent rules of conduct and tax them without repre
snntation, we have the methods of the crown.
When we are told that tbe revenue derived will
be used for the benefit of the Philippine Islands,
we quote the language of John Jay, the first Chief
Justice of the United States, in bis eloquent ap
peal to the people of Great Britain, In which he
protested against taxation without representation
"These and many other impositions were laid
upon us unjustly and unconstitutionally for the
express purpose of raising a revenue. In order to
silence complaint it was. indeed, provided that
this revenue should be expended in America for
its protection ana aetense. xnese exactions, now-
ever, can receive no justification from a pretended
necessity of protecting and defending U3."
When we are informed that a contract to clear
the harbor at Manila has been awarded at the cost
of 93,000,000, we ask why it was that a Republican
Congress last year failed to appropriate one dollar
for Auisrican rivers and harbors?
When claims of necessity are made for the ex
penditure of enormous sums in a remote conn try
in a state of outlawry, and among a people who
can never become American citizens, we point to
' t.iat great river which at times gathers the waters
of a continent and bears on its mighty tide the
wraith of the dreaded flood. W.i ask you to look
upon the map of your country and there find in
the lowlands of tbe South a soil rich beyond com
pare and capable of the highest excellence and de
velopment. We brg you to remember that these
lands of measureless value belong to sovereign
States and are a part of the American Union.
The men who are there and who will go there
love their country and their country's flag and
stand ready to build American homes and turn up
the soil if protected against disaster.
Why leave this fair field to batten on that
When it is urged that public roads must be built
we call attention to the fact that the islands are
not yet pacified and that a large and highly expen
sive standing army is required to hold in subjec
tion even the small area of American occupancy.
If built at all it is conceded they will involve a
heavy outlay and run through a country ill adapt
ed to tbe purpose. If used at all , they will be for
military purposes only, and we are opposed to the
military road in the Philippine Islands just as we
were to the military roads of Spain in Cuba and
Porto Rico by which that ancient monarchy
sought to sustain her despotic sway. If it is replied
that paternalism is involved in this idea, so it is in
the one proposed.
When it is asserted that the revenue derived
from this bill is to be used for the education of the
Filipinos, we answer that no tropical race has ever
been or ever will be educated out of its heredity
and environment. When it is urged as a reason
for the passage of this bill that 4,000 school teach
ers have recently been employed, we answer that
the Islanders demand free trade and not free teach-
We direct the attention of the country to the
enormous sums to be expended in this doubtful ex
periment of education and denied the 8,000,000 or
more of ignorant blacks at home, who could at least
be taught the industrial arts, and whom the South
ern people are t ixin? themselves to educate, with
out governmental aid and often to their sore dis
tress. The Republican party placed this lies vy burden
upon the South, which has contributed so much to
the glory and honor of the Republic.
We have heard much of the new South. I deny
that there is such a thing as tbe new South.
It is the same old South who gav a Jefferson " to
state American liberties and a Washington to
achieve them. It was the old South who strewed
your flag thick with stars of sovereign States.
It is the same old South who parted with the
Union for just cause and came back at Appomattox
in good faith, but without apology.
It is the old South who has ever stood for the
It is the same old South in whose fair and loyal
bosom the serpent of anarchy has never slept.
It was tbe old South who knelt with you at the
bier of martyred McKinlsy and mingled ber tears
with yours. Applause.
It was the spirit of the old South which followed
the flag to tbe islands of the sea.
It was the old South who gave Win Geld Scott
Schley to his country, who stood on the Brooklyn's
bridge and wrought imperishable glory, the luster
of which uo naval cabal can ever dim. Applause.
Mr. Chairman, if this bill should pass every
child born in the Philippine Islands would be
without a country. I never want to he.tr the term
"mother country" applied to the United States, for
she bas never bred a colony, and from her womb
none but American citizens have ever sprung, and
they have made American States.
Who is there, proud of his country and drawing
his inspiration from the crowding and glorious
memories of every battlefield for human freedom,
from Concord Bridge down to York-town, who
would sell the proud birthright of an American
citizen for that of an American subject?
Representing, as we think, the true American
policy, we still revere the Declaration of Inde
pendence which the Republican party has spat
upon and relegated to the lumber room of useless
things. Holding fast to the Constitution which
has safeguarded us through every peril and point
ed the way for the feet of liberty -loving men to
walk hitherto untrodden heights of glory, we
again enter our protest against the passage of this
Here we plant our standard and refuse to yield
one principle in tbe firm establishment of human
rights or forget the lofty story of American inde
pendence. The flag is spoken of as If we were its
enemies. The intimation is untrue. I revere that
symbol as the highest and holiest earthly emblem,
and whether on land or sea it commands the respect
of the nations of the world. But it is because I do
that I never want to see it wave except in honor.
Wherever it is raised I would have liberty and tbe
blessing of self-government shaken from its folds,
and I would furl it forever in every land where it
stands as tbe physical sign of American sovereign- j
ty, if the Constitution, the soul and spirit of the
Republic, could not follow it. Applause on the
