HAVE 10 FEAR OF DEBT OFTEN GIVE COSTLY BANQUETS TO THEIR CREDITORS. Are Fond of Excitement and Variety Difficult to Reconcile Their Characteristica. BY WILLIAM E. CURTIS. Special Correspondence of The Evening Star and Chicago Record-Herald. MANILA, July 4, 1904. While there are a variety of opinions concerning the character and capacity of the Filipino, everybody will agree that he is a bundle of contradictions. He is pas sionately attached to his home, and can not be .induced to emigrate or leave it, no matter how humble it is, yet he does noth ing to improve or beautify it or keep it in order or add to the comforts or conven iences of living. He has no taste for dec oration like the Japanese and Chinese. Any kind of a cabin of palms, with leaky roof and an earthen floor, is good enough for him. He asks no more than a pig or a goat or a dog, is content with a place to lie down and sleep, and it is difficult to drive him away from the corner in which he is in the habit of lying. He is devoted to his wife and family, but will do nothing to improve their condition, makes no provision for their future and wastes his wages at the gambling table when they are in need of food and cloth ing. He will live on his wife's wages as long as she will support him, and will let his little ones die for lack of medical at tention. I4alf of the deaths in the Philip pine Islands are of children from the neg lect of their parents, and yet the parents. particularly the fathers, idolize their little ones. The Filipino is a fanatic in his love of independence, yet, as I explained to you the other day, he is willing to live in peonage. He has a hysterical emotion that he calls patriotism. It is not what we consider a love of country or a desire to benefit his fellow-citizens, but is a mixture of vanity, ambition, craving for power, love of parade and excitement. He will sacrifice everything for a cause; 1 he will even lay down his life, yet he will plunder it, betray it and desert it if it does not gratify his ambition or personal whims. Wonderful Inconsistency. He is naturally dishonest, yet he will spend his whole life in slavery to work out the debts of his ancestors. He will swin dle and pilfer from his employers, yet he will defend their persons and their inter ests with his life. He will steal from his C master whenever he wants anything rath er than ask for it, but he will not allow any one-"else to rob those interests he is looking after. Concerning his honesty, all agree that he never will steal what he does not want. He is not a burglar or a housebreaker or a highwayman, although he sometitres becomes a ladrone for love C of adventure and excitement. If he wants - anthing that belongs to another person b he appropriates it regardless of conse Lquences. qu An American lady living in Manila has ~~~~~two men servants whom shecosdrne n perfect so far as their training and abil ity to do housework is concerned. She has alwysbelieved them to be perfectly hon est until recently, when she discovered that the money given them for marketing did not go so far as formerly. Suspecting that they were keeping some of it for their own use she arranged to pay the bills herself. Shortly after she began to miss small change from her purse, which she was in f the habit of keeping in a desk for the pay ment of bills as they came in. She set a t trap and discovered that somebody w as taking 15 or 20 cents every day. She called in one of the men. told him that she stis pected the other of pilfering and inquired hat he thought about it. He declared that he knew it to be true. and that the stolen money was lost over a gambling table in a house in the next block. He explained that his associate had only recently acquired the habit of gambling and that as soon as he had lost his wages he took to stealing in C order to continue his play. Sending him away and calling in the other servant she got exactly the same story. He accused his associate of stealing the money, said that he lost it gambling at the same place, and declared that he had been an honest boy until a few months ago when he learned to shake dice from some friends. Since then he had gambled away every penny - of his wages and had been tempted to steal in order to have money to play with. Continuing her investigations, .the lady became convinced that both stories were true, that both her servants had sud ~denly become gamblers. both were playmng at the same table at the same time, and each was pilfering from her purse whenever he needed money for stakes, knowing that the other was doing the same. Other house wives have had similar experiences. Dead Wife Useless. John Foreman, who has lived in the is land for many years, and whose book is regarded as the highest authority on Philippine affairs, gives many interesting glimpses of Filipino habits and throws mut:h light upon the native character. He says: "The native is a good father and a good husband, unreasonably jeal ous of his wife, careless of the honor of his daughter, and will take no heed of the indiscretions of his spouse before marriage. Cases have been known of na tives, having fied from their burning huts, taking care to save their fighting cocks, but leaving their wives and chil dren to look after themselves. "In February, 1885,'" says Foreman, "I was present in the town hall of Mara quina, a little village six miles from Ma nila, when the petty governor was hear ing a remarkable case of callousness. A native had handed over the corpse of his late wife to his brother-in-law for inter ment and refused to pay any of the ex penses. During the investigation the hus band put forth the fantastic plea that his consort had been useful to him in life, but now she was no longer of any service, and he did not think he ought to be com pelled to incur any expense over a dead body. He was condemned to pay the cost of the burial, but, alleging that he had no money, he had to go to work in the village, husking rice until the sum was paid. I made him an offer on the spot to buy off his debt, he to pay me by re ceiving lashes in the town hall at the rate of 3 cents a strok9, but he would not accept the bargain." "'T'he Filip,ino is very fond of gambling, is profligate and lavish in his promises, but lasy in the extreme as to their ful fillment. He will never come frankly and openly forward and make a clean breast of a fault until it is found out. In com mon with many ,other non-European races, an act of generosity or a voluntary concession of justice is regarded as a sign of weakness. The reasoning of a native and a European differs so largely that the'mental impulse of the two races is ever clashing. Sometimes a newly ar rived generously disposed, provincial governor will start a reform solely for their benefit. and find his subjects quite indifferent about it. With the majority, no number of years of genial intercourse without material profit, will arouse in the native breast a perceptible sympathy for the white race. Exceptions to this rule are always appreciated. The Visaya na tive in particular exhibits a frigid stoic ism. He bears him own misfortunes un moved and would look upon another -in Imminent danger with solemn indiffer .nce. "If you pay a native 20 cents for a serv ice performed, and that be exactly what the is entitled to, he will.say nothing, but if, in a generous mood, you pay him 25 or 0 cents for a service which should bring ,-him only 21 cents, he will at once assume .,that you are ignorant of the prope charge nand will demand more, He wil always take advantage of the ignorance of strang Housewives say that if natives want some Strivial thing, which they could readily ob ~f ~Ibyasin, he wllnot be candid or bush, telling all soV q lies and giving all kinds of reasons that do not - apply, until they become tangyd Jnd complicated in their own duplicity. Are Not e ive.g "Even the best of natives neither appreciate nor f p tpde for, or even seem to underst spontaneous gift," says Mr. Foreman, Apparently they cnly comprehend a favor when- ose yields to their asking. The lowe classes never give to each other, unsolicied, a cent's worth. If a Vuropean maltes !Voluntary gratuities to natives he is cotisdered a fool; they en tertain a contemptlfr,him which develops into intolerable -finence. Therefore, to avoid this, if e wants arything, never offer it to .. voluntarily; if he comes to borrow, len4d_m a little less than he asks for, after a. rbose preamble. If one at once lent Jr s ve the full value asked for, the nttix4. would continue to invent a host of PMessing necessities until one's patience is exhausted. The saying 'Give him an inch and he will take an ell,' can truly be applied to the Filipmos. They are void of all feeling of magnanimity and do not understand chivalry toward- the weak or the fallen foe. "A native seldom restores the loan of anything voluntarily. On being ren:on strated with for his remissness, after the date of payment or for the return of the article has expired, he will coolly reply: You did not ask me for it.' A native considers it no degradation to borrow money. It gives him no recurrent feeling of humiliation or distress of mind. Thus he will often give a costly feast to impress his neighbors with his wealth and maintain his prestige, whilst on all sides. he has debts innumerable. At most he regards debt as an inconvenience, not as a calam ity." Clever Imitators. Servants, waiters and laborers never come at first call. You will notice that always in the hotels. There are no electric bells, and the only way to get a boy is to open your door, clap your hands to attract attention and yell for him. I ou always have to yell three or four times and sometimes longer, before you get a response, and you are al ways convinced that the boy heard the first summons. There is no reason why he should not have done so. But this is the habit of the lower classes with their fami lies and friends. It is customary for them to call or address each other four or five times before getting a reply. Like most orientals, the Filipino is very clever as an imitator, but has no talent for the initiative. If you will give him a model he will copy it exactly, even its defects, if it has any; but he has no attachment for any particular occupation. He is perfectly willing to be a jack of all trades. A Chinese servant will do the same thing every day exactly in the same way. When you first hire a Chinese servant he expects you to tell him exactly what his duties are, and he will perform them promptly, faithfully and efficiently, but nothing will induce him to do anything else. If you have forgotten to tell him of any duties he is expected to perform, it is useless to try to persuadc. him to perform them. A Chinaman is a creature of habit, faithful and exact, but he does not care for variety. The Filipino is exactly the reverse. He is fond of changin; employment, and would like to do some thing different every day. He never looks ahead. He never worries about the future. He is a fatalist in prac tice, if not in theory, and never cries over spilt milk. When he is pressed too hard he loses his self-control, and is likely to do al most anything without regard to conse quences. He explains this impulsiveness by saying that his "head is hot." Employers of experience invariably warn others not to begin by treating a new ser vant with kindness, but to treat him sternly and even severely at. first, because he does not expect anything else, and will assume that any concession made to him is a sign of fear or weakness, and take advantage of it. Beat About the Bush. Foreman in his book says: "If familiarity be permitted with a native there is no limit t his audacity. If a question be suddenly put to a native he apparently loses his presence of mind, and gives a reply most convenient to himself, to save himself trou ble, punishment or reproach. It is a mat ter of perfect indifference to him whether the reply be true or not. Then, as the in vestigation proceeds, lie will amend one statement after another, until finally he has practically admitted his first explanation to be quite false. Ope who knows the na tive character so far 'as its mysteries are penetrable would never attempt to get at the truth of a question by direct inquiry. He would 'beat about the bush' and extract the truth bit by bit. Nor do the natives, rich or poor, of any class in life, and with very few exceptions in the whole popula tion. appear to regard lying as a sin, but rather as a legitimate convenience which should be resorted to whenever it will serve the purpose. As this is one of the most re markable characteristics of the natives of both sexes in all spheres of life. I have re peatedly discussed it with the priests, sev eral of whom have assured me that the habit prevails even in the confessional. "Men and women alike find exaggerated enjoyment in litigation, which many keep u;) for years. Among themselves they are tyrannical. They have no real sentiment, honor or magnanimity, and apart from their hospitality, in which they (especially the Tagalogs) far excel the Europeans, all their actions appear to be only guided by fear or self-interest, or both. "The native is indolent in the extreme. and never tired of sitting still, gazing at nothing in particular. lie will do no regu lar work without an advance-his word cannot be depended upon. HeI is fertile and skIllful in exculpatory devices. He is mo mentarily obedient, but is averse to subjec tion. He feigns friendiship, hut has no loyalty. He is calm and silent, but can keep no secret. He is daring on the spur of the moment, hut fails in resolution if he reflects. He is wantonly unfeeling toward animals; cruel to a fallen foe, but fond of his children.'' DECLABED SOCIALISM A MENACE. Speaker at Detroit Catholic Conven tion Arraignls That Doctrine. A dispatch from Detroit, Mich., last night says: "SocialIsm not only inculcates individual and domestic anarchy, but it professedly aims at the ruin of all exist ing governments," declared Rev. T. J. Campbell, S. J-, of New York, at the pub lic meeting in Laight Guard Armory to night of the convention of the American Federation of Catholic Societies, which was attended by several thousand resi dents o. this city, in addition to the dele gates to the convention, "The specter of socialism," continued the speaker, "which looms over modern civilization with a menace of ruin may well cause serious alarm. In general, its rise may be ascrIbed to the elimination of Christianity from modern legislation; to the influence of false economic prin ciples, and to the new methods which the nations have adopted to achieve great ness and power. "Socialism is abselutely destructive of all human liberty, WVe need no better proof of that thahl to' glance at what is going on in Frahlp~ Whose government the socialists boakif controlling. 'a he only oppo i of socialism is the Catholic Church. ' e' mistake is that the Catholic Church Lu.leld to be an enemy. She is not. She' Il conquer, but con quer as a friend. . n. yrhat lines does the church propose to proceed? By teaching, by inculcating and,faIWost by compelling, through the instri1deStality of her pul pits, her schools SUp her confessionals, reverence for G0,O~ dience to divine and human law, v for humanity. "Socialism with a51 not yet a formi dable political powersbut there is kll the more reason, be(O'S t becomes an ag-. gresslye and org ~ force, to build up an army of fedeM Iassociations, act uated by principl9 which are antagonis tic to or correc4V e those dangerous doctrines." -.. Intense Electionl Peeling at Enxile A dispatch from Knoxville, TenIn., last night says: 'The first bloodshed of the elec tion which will be decided tomorrow oc curred today, when Charles Gurley, one of the organisatlon democratic caddts was perhapas fa,tally stabbed with a knife in the bands of James Bennett. The trou ble grew out of an argument a:bout the election. Gurley struck Bennett two blows with his fist, and then Bennett used his knife. Last night, on the streets ,TJudge J. M.
