Chairman Jackson in his campaign speech gave utterance to that recent democratic sophistry that since the Filipinos were our allies against Spain I hat honor re quires us to acknowledge their in dependence. This charge has been often and ably retuted, but the facts are nowhere more strongly set out than in a recent Magazine article from the pen of Charles Denby, late United States minister to China. He says: "Let us, as briefly as we can, cite the witnesses who deny this charge. In the preliminary state ment of the old Philippine commis sion, bearing the date of Novem ber 2, 1899, Admiral Dewey says: 'No alliance of any kind was en tered into »with Aguinaldo, nor was any promise of Independence made him then (May 19, 1S98) or at any other time.' Under the date of December 18, 1899, Gen eral Merritt says: 'There was pos itively no agreement between Aguinaldo, or any of his represen tatives and myself, that looked to ward cooperation between us (see New York Independent of Janu ary 4, 1900). August 3, 1898, Aguinaldo wrote to General An derson: 'My troops are forced by yours, by means of threats and vi olence, to retire from positions taken.' (See page 399, Senate Document 62). "In a proclamation issued by Aguinaldo at Malolas, January 5, 1899, he said: *The Americans disembarked forces at the town of l'aranaque, and took up positions all along the line occupied by my troops. * * taking possession of many trenches constructed by my own people, by the employment of astuteness, not accompanied by VIOLENCE. They forced a capitu lation on the garrison of Manila. * * In this I took a very active part, ALTHOUGH I WAS NOT NOTI FIED.' July 28, 1898, Consul Pratt wrote to his government: 'I held out no hopes to him of any kind, committing the government in no way whatever, and in the course oi our conferences never acted upon the assumption that the govern ment would COOPERATE with him (Gen. Aguinaldo) for the further ance of any plan of his own.' (See page 358, Senate Document No. 62 ) "General Anderson wrote Aguinaldo, July 23, 1898, that il he did not aid him in securing horses and supplies he would have to pass him and make requisition directly' on the people (See Senate Do ument No. 62, page 394). Gen I to Greene says that Aguinaldo did much to thwart General Anderson, going so far in a letter of July 23 1898, as to warn General Ander son not to land troops on Philippine soil without his consent. On Feb ruary 4, 1899, at Malolos Aguin _ aide declared war; proclaiming that peace and friendly relations be iween the Philippine forces and the American forces were broken and tl'at the latter would be treated as enennVs /O ____ . enemies. (t>ee OtlS report, page ne) Tn Aunnef . Q \ . • il Oh in August, 1898, Aguinaldo asked Consul , . 1 SKCII consul Williams, 'Why do not 'lie Amori™,, ____ ___ 1 i HOI me American generals oper- I ! ate in conjunction with the Fili pino generals?' (Senate Docu ment No. 62, page 398) " These are the lacts which lhe i deni cratic rhetoricians can not controvert, but which they hope to disguise by a panoply of words. But the trutli will come out, and knowing the truth there is nothing in the conduct of the war in the : PI,Hip,.!,.« by the ad„,l„i st ,.,i OT ,J which the American people will not endorse.

He ac complished neither of these ob jects. His first battle in the conven tion was to secure the temporary organization, he lost that. Then began the fight to seat the contest ing delegation from Shoshone county. To gain this end the governor pledged himself to with draw his other claims. »umi promised to seat the contesting i * ! delegation he pledged himself to withdraw from the race for dele gate-at large and trom any attempt to force a resolution through the convention endorsing his state ad ministration. This, together with the evidence adduced in the con test case, gave him the victory. It is true,however, that a reso lution endorsing the state admin istration was voted down In the committee on resolutions by a majority of one vote. It is also true that when the Gove-nnr find vnffdv Cf-ntur! flio ! e. nor nail saieiy seated tne j contesting delegation he fnrpnt 1-U lumcauiil, ueiegHUUU ne lorgoi Bis promises and tried to secure strength to pass a resolution of| endorsement, but the cry of "bad: faith" went out against him and his strongest partisans refused sup port to such a resolution. He quit because lie could not win. His control of the convention is a boast of strength only. It is a crumb of cold comfort to the Governor, who looks forward to Pocatello \yith a feeling and foreboding of ill. The decision on the Shoshone county matter opens up a new schism between the populist and democratic parties of that county and makes a complete union of the so called reform parties of the stale impossible. Those who plead for a compromise told the convention that any decision was daugerous ground. A decision was forced through the convention. Its effect will be made manifest at Poca tello. j j T*ht Omaha World-Herald. was Mr. Bryan's personal organ in » OM i Hnritifr « i, „ * Iö 9°» anu during that campaign it the want pages of the World Her -1 * ® YYuiiu iici j aid.
