Commissioner Oabaldon Declares
Propaganda in United States Has
Reacted Favorably.
By the An.oclated Freu.
BARCELONA. Spain, July 30.
Isauro Gabaldon, resident commis
sioner of the Philippines at Washing
ton, who is on a mission to Europe in
behalf of the Philippine Independence
movement, yesterday gave the news
papers here a long declaration of
the alms of the Filipino people.
"Never before were our hopes for
the triumph of our cause so well
founded,” said Mr. Gabaldon. "Any
country which knows our desire will
become a partisan of Philippine aa
"The propaganda we have made In
the United States has reacted favor
ably upon public opinion and pro
voked such feeling as to contribute
powerfully to the labors of the con
stitutional Filipino representatives
in the American Congress at Wash
ington. The Democrats of the United
States have conceded us absolute In
dependence. The Republican party,
however, is not our enemy despite its
opposition to our aims.”
Taking up the Japanese question,
Mr. Gabaldon said;
"Japan never has been a menace
to the Philippines, principally be
cause the Japanese seem not to like
our climate and because they do not
consider the Philippines a good prise.
Japanese have Invaded Honolulu and
California, but have avoided our Is
lands despite their geographical
Mr. Gabaldon then gave figures to
show how few Japanese enter the
Philippines and also to prove that
many of those who had resided in
the Islands had returned to Japan.
