IT’S UP TO CONGRESS SCHURMAN GIVES OUT STATE MENT ON PHILIPPINES. HOW TO END THE WAR Government for the Islands Should Be Established and as Much Liberty as Possible Given the Natives—'Many Tribes and Many Languages—Solu tion of Problem. Ithaca, Sept. 14.—President Schur man Wednesday gave out the follow ing statement to the Associated Press on the Philippine affairs: “It requires some effort to realize the vastness of the aichipelago, which extends in a triangular form from Formosa to Borneo and Celebes, through sixteen degrees of latitude. The multiplicity and heterogeneous nature of the tribes is something as tounding. Over six:ty different lan guages are spoken in the archipelago and the majority of the tribes are small, half a dozen of each having not over a quarter of a million members. The languages of these people are as distinct from one another as French is from Spanish or Italian so that the speech of any one tribe is unintelligible to its neighbors. These tribes are all civilized and chris tianized, but small uncivilized tribes inhabit the mountains in Luzon and form a large part of the population of Mindanano. It is the Tagalos who in habit some of the provinces about Ma nila, who are resisting the authorities of the United States. The other civilized Filipinos are neu tral, except where they are coerced by armed bands of Taga los. It would be incorrect to assume, however, that these tribes are allies of ours. Indeed, they are not without suspicion of the white race. But they are men of intelligence and property, and the masses when not stirred up by the Tagalos recognize the advantage to them of American sovereignty and so many remain neutral. The insur rection, though serious enough as our experience has proven, is not a na tional uprising. Indeed, there is no Philippine nation. There is a multi farious collection of tribes having only this in common, that they belong to the Malay race. The inhabitants of the archipelago no more constitute a nation than the inhabitants of the continent of Europe do. The United States having assumed by treaty of peace with Spain, sov ereignty over the archipelago became responsible for the maintenance o* peace and order. This is an obligation which the intelligent Filipinos expect us to fulfill. In taking the Philippines we annexed a great responsibility. The fact that the responsibility is heavier than most people supposed it would be is no excuse for failure to discharge it. I repeat that the Philip pine question is essentially a question of national honor and obligation.” In reply to an inquiry whether any thing is now left but to fight it out President Schurman said: “In my opinion much good could be done by a declaration on the part of congress that form of government is to be established in the islands or better still, let congress establish a government for the Philippines and have it put in force in all parts and among all tribes hostile to the united States. This will serve several pur poses. It would distinguish between our friends and enemies and treat the former according to their deserts. It would also give our enemies a demon stration of free government on the American plan. I have called atten tion to the fact that a government which is well adapted to one tribe may need considerable modification to be available for another.” Asked about the capacity of the Fili pino peoples to govern themselves, Sehurman replied they had no experi ence in self-government except in municipal affairs, and even this was subject tej the control of the Spanish authorities. President Sehurman seemed firm in the conviction that some form of home rule for each of. the tribes under the watchful supervi sion of the general government at Ma nila was the solution of the problem. IRISH LACE AGAIN. There is a pretty use of an Irish lace fichu on a gown of pale green tserge, and, by the way, this new serge is very nice in delicate colors. The basque is made with a rounded yoke of finely tucked turquoise blue mousseline de sole, and about this lies the flat fichu collar. It is caught in front with a gold buckle, and one end of, the fichu escapes from this to trim the front of the basque with a tiny cascade. The basque is very short in front, with smart coat tails that are lined with turquoise blue. The long skirt is trim med simply with bands of cloth, imi tating scallops. Truly. English gowns sound very simple in the description, but in the tailor-made costumes es pecially there is wonderful skill in the cut. Ther° seems little new to record of coat and jacket suits, save that in Lon don the short jacket seems to be bet ter liked than the bolero. Pique revers are often worn with serge Jackets, and with pique stocks to match. These look fresh and are easily add ed to a costume. The English sailor hat is small and very smart looking. It is probably the same sbape as is worn in America, but it is different from the French sailor. The latter has a rather broad, curled brim and a crown lower in front than behind.— New York Tribune.
