Feeling is very high in Mexico
against the three representatives of

Discusses Conditions

the full meaning of the word exists
through the Philippines oven in the
city of Manila, and peonage Is gen
eral in the islands, according to a
special report Commissioner Dean
Worcester has made to the insular
government. It has not been re
ceived by the war department but
copies are in the hands of other offi
Filipinos in parts of the Island com
monly capture children and 6ell them

reports In detail, were sold and others
fanned out for money He cites t In
case of a thirteen-year-old girl bought
I for some pigs and a cloak. The su

the slave trader on the grounds that
no crime bad been committed because

on the traffic, he says, lies tabled in
the Philippine assembly
Mr. Worcester declares he had
groat difficulty in getting facts of
slave cases and Intimates that reports
were withheld by the officers of the
Philippine constabulary. He cites the
case of a Philippine assemblyman
caught red handed owning a slave girl
In Manila, and saya:
"I could obtain conclusive evidence

It is simply a case of time and work."

Preeldent Meets Harrison
Whatever is done by the United
States with respect to the Philippine
Islands is to be gauged by the bent
interests of the people of the archl
pelago and not by what might be con
strued as selfish purposes of the
American government.
That Is the view President Wilson
and Francis Burton Harrison, newly
appointed governor general, take of
the question of Philippine independ
ence. according to Information todav
at the White House.
The president believes the United
States In the profoundest sense is
the trustee of the Philippines and to
. oJUhJ&Jntuhij wisely is the
keynote of policy of his administra
tion li whs indicated at the White Hms
that while rui proposal for Immediate
independence was being now consid
ered, a policy of active preparation
for granting the Independence within
years will be pursued by the
United States.
