.PREFERS INDE
PENDENCE TO
HIGH POSITION
The Democratic party of the Philip
pines will join the Naeionalista party,
which is now in power, in the demand
for immediate independence of the
Philippines, Senator Teodoro Sandiko,
only member of the Democratic party
in the Philippine senate, said in an ad
dress at a luncheon at Manila. This
Hon. Sergio Osmena, noted Filipino
leader, who stated he would prefer
to be humblest citizen under inde
pendence than leader under another
i country.
means that all political parties in the
Philippines are united for independ
ence.
■* The luncheon was given for members
of both houses of the Philippine legis
lature by former Senator Gabaldon, re
cently chosen resident commissioner at
Washington.
Sergio Osmena, speaker of the Phil
ippine house of representatives and
head of the dominant Xacionalista par
ty, who was recently termed “the great
est Filipino since Rizal,” addressing
Senor Gabaldon, said:
“We urge upon you in your capacity
of resident commissioner to the United
States to tell Congress and the people
of that noble country that we who are
gathered here today would prefer to
be the lowest and humblest citizens of
the Philippines with independence in
our hands than the leaders that we
now are in our country under tlie tute
lage of another country.”
URGE EXAMPLE OF
SELF-DETERMINATION
That friends of Irish independence
In the American Congress eonld make
a more effective impression on Great
Britain by granting Philippine inde
pendence than by merely expressing
sympathy with Irish aspirations is the
suggestion contained in a statement is
sued by tile Philippine Press Bureau
: of Washington, D. C.
, “Twice in a period of nine months,”
« reads the statement, “tin1 United States
Senate went on record as being in sym
pathy ‘with the aspirations of the Irish
people for a government of their own
choice.’
“Still another way for (lie friends of
Irish independence in the American
Congress to make an impressive argu
ment would be to grant the independ
ence that the 10.500,000 inhabitants of
the Philippines have repeatedly de
manded. America’s own representa
tives in the islands have officially re
ported they are ready for independence
and have recotjmiended that such inde
pendence he granted.
“We submit that the granting of
Philippine independence would he like
ly to he accepted by Great Britain as
even stronger proof of America’s be
lief in self-determination than the pas
sage of the Irish resolutions, because
Great Britain’s couneilors of state
could not then successfully make the
point that the American Congress is
asking Great Britain to do something
(he United States itself has been asked
to do and has not done.
“The Filipino people have confidence
in the word of America and hope that
now that the Senate lias reiterated its
sympathy with the principle of self
determination it will give Great Brit
ain and the other powers of the world
a concrete example of consistency and
good faith by granting Philippine in
dependence.”
YOUNG FILIPINO WON
FRENCH WAR CROSS.
Gregorio Cailles. a Filipino, recently
returned to his Philippine home wear

Guerre with palm. Cailles in Decem

record as a soldier. At one time when
all the officers of his company had
been killed, he took command and led
the men in a charge. He was dec
orated for this act of bravery by the
French Government.

“POLLY OF THE CIRCUS," GREATEST AMERICAN PLAY, ATTRACTION AT CHAUTAUQUA.
Margaret Mayo America's greatest lady playwright, wrote “Polly of the Circus”—aiming it at ..e people who '
were narrow in their views toward others—those who were intolerant of iife, love and laughter The play was t
an instantaneous success and for several years played to capacity houses in the larger cities of this countrv and Eu
ope. And now Community Cliautainjuas have taken it, and with talented players and special scenery are* bringing
the complete production to your very doors. The cast of players includes such well known ac ors and actresses as

“Polly of the Circus” is simple and sweet; it is a typical play of American life; its greftt dramatic power lies in
