Consul at Manila Throws Light on the
Sitaatlon la the Philippines.
Washington. Jan. 7. The correspond
trace of Consul General Wildman is In
teresting reading at this time, when the
situation in the Philippines Is somewhat
critical. He was stationed at Manila
prior to the war. He was in constant
communication with Aguinaldo for
some time after the battle of Manila
bay. March 19 last he speaks of the In
fluence of the church as the greatest
bar to progress in the islands. 'Williams
nlso Ftates that every leisure hour was
devoted to the inspection of the forts
arsenals and battleships in and about
Manila, even at that early day. and
that he was sending Information thus)
derived to Commodore Dewey, who was
then at Hong Kong.
Wildrr.an left Manila on April 23. Ha
was a witness of Dewey's victory and
on May 12 resumed his reports from
Cavlte. His first dispatch of that data
begins with assurances of "the friendli
ness of the Philippine natives to our
country and to me as its representa
tive." "Aguinaldo told me today."
he writes on June 16, "that his friends
all hor ed that the Philippines would be
held as a colony of the United States."
This was only four days after the first
formation of a provisional government
by the natives. Later he writes: "My
argument with Aguinaldo has been
that the conditions of government by
the I'nlted States in the Philippine isl
ands would be vastly better for him
and his peeiple in honor, advancement
and profit than could exist under any
plan fixed by himself and Filipinos." On
Sept. 5 Wildrr.an cabled: "If we evacu
ate anarchy rules."
On July 18 the consul wrote: "I con
sider the forty or fifty Philippine lead
ers with whose- fortunes I have been
very closely cornected both the su
periors of the Malays and the Cubans.
Aguinaldo, Agoncillo and Sandico are
all men who would be leaders in their
separate departments In any country,
while among the wealthy Manila men
who live In Hong Kon and who are
spending their money liberally for the
overthrow of the Spaniards and the an
nexation to the United States, men like
the Cortez family and the Paza family
would hold their own among bankers
and lawyers anywhere. In spite of
statements to the contrary I know they
are fighting for annexation to the Unit
ed States nrs-t and for independence
secondly." Tleferring to Aguinaldo's
organization of a government he says it
was absolutely necessary to take such
a step to maintain control over the na
In conclusion Wildman says: "I wish
to put myself on record as stating that
the insurgent government of the Phil
ippine islands cannot be dealt with as
though they were North American In
Hans. willing to be removed from one
reservation to another at the whim of
their masters." The eorresptndence
shows that Wildman was warned not to
make pledges or discuss policy with
Aguinaldo, and that he replied that he
made him no pledges.
Keoileld Favor Stephenson.
Madison, Wis., Jan. 7. Governor Sco-
field has come eiut in an interview in
favor of former Representative Steph-
ensem. of Marinette, for United States
senator. It is believed, however, that
while the governor is personally fa
vorabie to Stephenson, the state ad
ministration as such will not take sides
in the contest. This belief is borne
out by the fact that Governor Scofield'a
appointees are divided among all the
senatorial candidates, except possihiy
ex-Congressman Cook and Judge Webb.
