that exists within Dm**** ratic ranks
over granting independence to the
Philippines was emphasised in the
House to-day wh?'n American adminis?
tration in the inlands was made the
suhjee t of a severe at'aek by Kepresen
tativc W A Jones, of Virginia, chair?
man of the House Commit'ee on In?
sular Affairs
Repri sen'a'ive .lones 8 sugges'ions
for Philippine independence, which
have been considered favorably by
President - Klee ' Wilson were opposed
by Representative Shirley Democrat
of Kentuc-ky. while rrttlrlsiaS of Presi?
dent Taft and Cuvf tnur -tie iura! < an
eron Korbe s brought a sharp reply from
Represen'a-i\ ?? Murray. Democrat, of
Massachusetts. The speech by Mr
? lones was both a demand for inde
penden'-e and a severe arraignment of
the administration in the islands
Mr. .lonee spoke in reply to a speech
by President Taft at the- Ohio Society!
dinm-r in New York lau' Saturday, in
which he attacked the ./ones bill The
President was quoted a- saying "the'
passage of the Jones bill would result
in a mess and a muss, whic h would for?
ever return to plague its makers.'*
Mr. Jones asserted that the govern-,
merit of the Philippines was not com?
parable hi any Sroy to those of Canada
and Australia. 1 shall undertake to
prove." he said, ?hat the governrnen
whu h the United sta'es has imposed
upon the Filipinos, and under the dOltsi
nence of which they ;<re for?ed to live,
s an oligarchy of the most Intolerable,
despotic ar.ej unrestricted character."
Denouncing the action of Oovcrnor
Oeneral Korbes ir. expending public
revenues "as in his sole judgment
seemed desirable." Mr Jones declared
that "many an official has been Im?
peached for less ; hari this."
? nvt of Operations.
Mr Jon? said what naval and mili
*ary operations on ace ount of t he Philip?
pines had ooet the I'n'ted States prob?
ably nrvfr would he known, bat that
Vu? on (reu. the estimate of the late
Senator Hoar, probably would be nearer
? ciirre , than rev cut official estimate?*
Representative Murray charged'Mr.
Jones with having "slandered CamTin
Korbes." and "debased President Tsft."
Mr. Jones denied these charges, but
insisted the administration of aflairs
;u the islands had violated at least the
spirit of the laws governing the Philip?
The fight that ensued over llepresen
tative Jones s speech broughf out the
rant :ha* an investigation mt Philippine
affairs had recently been dis.-usred by
the- HoueS Committee an Insular
rVffalrs. bul no action taken. Repreeen- j
tetivehi array, a member of the eeea
mittce. declared that had he known
? 'hau man -loner, inteoded to make a
speech i hargmg Gove rnor 1 orbes
with being a grafter." he would have
insisted on having Governor Korbes
brought before the committee where he
could reply to the attacks.
I have- riot charged Governor Korbes
with being a grafter." retorted Mr.
, Jones
"You have been Snuttcrably unjust
to him in the speee-h you have made."
said Mr. Murray.
Mr Murray further declared many
?Ig Bibers of the Insular Committee
we-rc wondering if it is wise to commit
Ulli sol I IS and the parly" to the support
of the Joans pill, whl' h would give the
Philippines independence ,n eight years.

Deputation Tries to Force
Way Into Par?
Bands of Suffragists Break Win?

and in Shopping Districts.
In Several Cases They Are
Roughly Handled by
Excited Crowds.
London, January 28.?As a protest
against the withdrawal of the franchise
bill by tue government. the suffragists
resumed their militant tactic to-night.
While a deputation which the Chan?
cellor of the Exchequer. David Lloyd.
George, had refused to seo until to?
morrow morning, was trying to force ite
way into Parliament against an over?
whelming force of police, und women
were being arrested for resisting the
' officers, tho other bands of women went
?hrough Whitehall breaking windows of
the government offices and through
Cockspur Street where the great plate
glass windows in the establishments of
shipping companies were ruthlessly'
The women also visited Oxford,
Regent and other streets in I he shopping;
district, where similar damage was done.
: Later mail boxes were attacked, quan
' titles of liquid being poured into them.

.stations had one or more prisoners
?charged with destroying property.
Jostled by Cnruly Crowd.
The demonstration in Whitehall was
not as large as some of those previ?
ously h>'id, the force of police and n
drenching rain mitigating against any
great turnout. The wildest ccxite
ment prevailed, however, and besides
protecting property and arresting wo?
men engaged In window smashing or
who refused to move on when ordered,
the police bad the greatest difficulty
in protecting the women from an un
i ruly crowd of youths, who gathered;
land jostled every woman wearing suf?
fragette colors.
In soveral oases the women were
1 roughly handled. An attempt to duclc
' four of thern in the fountain in Tra?
falgar Square was frustrated by n
police posse, which had to ndc through
i the, crowd.
j The entire deputation of twenty-one
; women, who attempted to make ibeir
way into the House to interview Chan

The prisoners included Mrs. Orummond
and Sylvia Pank hurst, who marched in
