Quezon Denies Report
that Filipinos Are
Preparing for War
WASHINGTON. Jan. !7.-Manuel L.
Quezon, the Philippine commissioner In
tho house, made a speech there today
denying reports that Agulnaldo and other
native leaders were fermenting a revolu
tion. Quezon discussed reports, published
today, of a battle between American
troops and Morro native In which sev
eral troopers were killed.
"Coupled with this report," declared
Mr. Quezon, "was the statement that
Agulnaldo and other Filipinos were, en
gaged In political nctlvllines and are
preparing for war Thh Is not true. For
the last two months, since the democrats
won at the polls these reports have come
from the Philippines regularly because
the democrats are pledged to give the
Philippines their Independence.
"Theso encounters between Moros und
American troops have heretofore bejn
concealed when It was In somebody's
Interest to conceal thorn, and they are
now given out when It Is somebody's In
tcrest to give them out.
Tiie Mliplnos are not preparing for
war. nicy have faith in the American
people and they expect their liberty at
tho hands of tho American people. Us
peciany they will not fight since thy
democratic party, pledged to Philippine
Independence is coming Into power."
Mr. Quezon pledged the fighting
strength of the Philippines to the United
States "If you ever get Into a war in the
east.

It was the most strenuous fight mad

Representative Palmer of Pennsylvania,
to A. M. Stafford of Cleveland.
Mr. Stafford contended that the tariff

Berger Asks House
to Investigate Sweat
Shop Conditions
WASHINGTON, Jan. 27.-Investlgatloft
of conditions In the garment working In
dustry In New York was proposed in a
resolution today by Representative Uer-
Ber, the socialist member from Wiscon
sin. The resolution would authorle the
appointment of a special committee of
seven members to Inquire Into the condi
tions surrounding the garment making
trade and the recent strike.
In the preamble of his resolution Mr.
Uerger sets forth that the New York
clothing Industry supplies the trade of a
large section of the country through In
terstate trade; that the wages of the in
dustry are so low "that healthy sur
roundings and a decent standard of llv
ing have become almost Impossible."
"It is further charged," continues the
preamble, "that vice and crime are bred
of the needless misery coincident to tho
manufacture of the nation's clothing,
and further, that bald manufacture Is
carried on in filthy and unsanitary' places
saturated with germs of consumption,
smallpox and scarlet fever and other con
tagious diseases."
Mr. Berger's resolution set forth that
clothing made in such conditions is "a
serious menace and danger to the wet
fare and health of all."
In a statement accompanying his reBO
lutton Mr. Uerger said that he desired to
show "the close connections which the
intolerable' economlo condition of the gar-
ment workers bear to crime and vice on
the one hand and how these economic
conditions revenge themselyes upon alt
tho people, because the people allow
them to exist.

for a shortage of $32,47 in tho funds of
the New York Monuments commission
Although technically in custody for a
moment General Sickles did not have to
leave his home. Sheriff Harburgcr, who
served the order of arrest, had purposely
delayed his visit until the bond had been

from the widow of General James Lohg

The general received the order of arrest
and tossed It on the table without looking
at It. He told the sheriff that it had
cost him 00 to get tho surety bond re
quired. The procedure of arrest and re
lease was short and formal.
At the age of 87 General Sickles is
a picturesque character and appeared es
pecially so to many passers-by who Taw
htm last night, sitting by the windows
of his big brick house at the corner of
Fifth avenue and Ninth street. The
room was crowded with many relics of
the civil war. Against the general's chair
there was leaning the crutoh which he

Gettysburg. On a little table near him
was a large vase containing flowers.
Above his chair and soma two feet over
