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.
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
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.—

on each layer, into a large dish, until
the dish is heaped up, then put on a
plate, or cover smaller than the dish,
with a weight of some kind, and leave
all night. In the morning wash well
in cold water, put on stove in fettles
half full. Take half cupful of whole
spice, tie up in muslin or cheesecloth
and place in the center of the tomatoes
in each kettle; do not quite cover with
vinegar, boil slow and well, a little
sugar in each kettle to suit taste. Do
not let burn. This will keep for years
if well corked; put in glass bottles. —
