THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS.
Senator Carter, of Montana, In Am
Interview, Speculate Ipon
Their Future Government.
Washington, Sept. 3. Senator Car
ter, of Montana, in an inlrview with
a reporter yesterday, raid that in his
opinion the war in the Philippines
would be ended by January 1. Then,
he said would come the (,iuw.tion of the
futuri disposition of Jhc staitds. Tha
republican party, lip'bciieved would
settle this question by insisting on th
retention of the Philippines as a mat.
:er of business profit.
"This," added the senator, "is a prao
tical age. We are going to deal with
this question on the basis of dollars
and cents. If the people believe thai
the Philippines are going to help ui
they will never let the islands go. If,
on the other hand, they find that the
Philippines mean a constant drain and
small return, you will iind the ver
dict of the people to be against per
manent retention. Xiither religion
nor sentiment will have much influ
ence in determining the verdict. The
great question will lie: 'Will it
pay? If we can show the coun
try that it will, as I think we can, th
American flag will never come dowq
from the Philippines."
"What sort of government should b
"Three suggest ious will undoubted
ly be made. The first of all will be tq
ibandon the islands entirely to the nai
tives. I do not believe this will meet
the approval of the American people.
The second will be seize the islands
in a firm grasp, assuring the peopla
that we mean to give them a bettei
government than they could enjoy un
der ajiy other Hag or could create for
themselves, but that we are the mas
ters and propose to remain so. Theq
the third proposition w i : I be to throw
i loose string around the people, hold
ing their seaports and custom house
with our navy, but allowing them ab
solute freedom in their internal af
fairs. This freedom, in may judgment,
would soon become anarchy, and wj
would have to rule anyway, so I
should say that the second proposition
is the one that ought to lie adopted.
The firmer we are in our administra
tion. the1 more respect will those peo
ple have for use.
"As to the form of government, con
tinued Senator Carter. "1 should say
that a governor ought lo be appointed
by the president, with a council also
selected by him. There might be a
Filipino legislature.cotiiposed of prom
nim t men from each of the island,
to discuss questions an.l advise the
governor. I do not appro-.e of a com
mission. 1 think the authority ought
to be vested in a responsible head, not
spread through severil commissioners.

handle two-thirds of the cotton of the
world anil save billions to the cotton
growers of America.
"Liverpool has built ca American
cotton, at the expense of American
growers, while Manchester has thrived
at the expense of Americi-n spinners,"
