AT first sight it seems odd, but it may be found true. in, the
' sequences of history, that the Japanese are doing all their
hard fighting in this war mainly for the benefit of the Russian
people, and that future descendants of the Slavs will remember the
warriors of the Mikado as emancipators of, their race from stagna
tion and tyranny. The tone of the Russian press, indicates that ; such
is even now the opinion of the Czar's subjects. Probably if they had
the liberty of letting their will be known through a representative
government, the Japanese would learn that the great majority of the
Russian public had no wish to be at war with them. The "Listqk"
says that the lesson of Russian defeat is that -good government and
freedom are always .victorious over ignorance,. misrule and despot
ism. The "SIovo" says the Japanese are not fighting the Russian
people but the Russian bureaucracy, arid the "Russ" states that tHe
Japanese naval victories arid, Oyama's triumphs on land should free
Russia from the slavery of bureaucracy. v
That is certainly th e ' ; most hopeful view of the ; situation that
can be taken by. intelligent,^prosperity-desiring folk of Russia arid
by their friends and the friends of peace throughout the world. lilf
the ruin of Russian armies-arid navies forces reformation. from the
system of bureaucracy which is so given over to robbery aqd- to
graft, the oppressed toilers of the country might well deem : their
nominal enemies 'to be their allies in promoting ithe future welfare
of the. Slavs. The exhaustion of Russia by continued war^may 'force
the calling of a representative assembly, that will voice the true
wishes of the people, and that popular assembly may seize the occa
sion to enforce permanent reforms.;

Up to this time our experience in the islands duplicates that
of Holland in Java. The population of the Dutch tropical colony
has increased so rapidly under Dutch rule that it swarms over the
island. It has proved capable of being taught anything but work.
The Dutch Commissioner of Education finds that all the schooling
of the Malays in book learning has failed to overcome their tropical
idleness. The commercial product of the island is maintained by a
working population of a half million Chinese. They-work regardless
of. tropical sun and wind and weather. They are in the fields and
factories, the shops, and wherever reliable work by hand or head is
j A representative of the Dutch Government is now in this coun
try to see if anything can be learned from a study of our technical
schools that may be usefully applied in teaching the Malays to
work. We fear he will be disappointed. The Chinese is the only
race on the earth that will work faithfully under all conditions of
climate and environment. It is this that causes theril to be consid
ered a pest, and turns the hand of all other races against them.
The Javanese Malay will not work. Holland must get commercial
production out of the colony, and therefore resorts to the service
able Chinese. -'Jv*
The second opinion about the Philippines comes from Com
mander Coffin of our navy, who has been in the islands since the
Spanish war and is on his way to Washington on official business.
.He says "the only salvation for the Philippines, so far as progress
is concerned, will be the free admission of Chinese, who are ready
to labor, while the Filipinos stubbornly persist in leading lives of
indolence." This means that we have the same problem as Holland.
Commander Coffin says that the Filipinos complain that they don't
have as good a time under our Government as they had under
Spain. This is because we tax them and in a missionary spirit have
interfered with their cock fighting, gambling and other amusements
dear to the tropical races. The civilian observer looks at things
with the eye of theory. The naval commander sees the islands
with the eye of a practical man. They show us a. problem from
both sides. The theorist does not say how many generations must
pass while we are teaching the Filipinos to work, rior how "many
hemp harvests must be lost and what expense incurred during the
process. As no tropical people has ever been taught to work unless
in involuntary servitude, have we any method by which we can
teach voluntary labor to the Filipinos ?
We have passed the stage of enthusiasm and brilliant expecta
tion regarding the Philippines, and will soon be in the practical
phases of the problem. The American people must inform them
selves about it. Commander Coffin gives it as his professional
opinion that we need extensive defensive works in the islands if we
expect to retain them against all possible' comers. The entrance to
Manila Bay must be protected by fo«rts,' earthworks and guns, just
as we protect the Golden Gate and the bay of San Francisco. But
back of the defenses of the Golden Gate is a population only one
fifth that of. the Philippines, which produces more wealth in one
year than the Philippines in fifty years. Beyond Manila Bay is a
population that resents the prohibition of cock fighting, while half
of the hemp rots in the field. The situation summons to a solution
the common sense and genius of the American people. T{iat a solu
tion will be reached we have no doubt, but no living prophet, seer
or revelator among us can tell what it will be.
Reliable reports are to the effect that this season's hemp crop
is half unharvested and wasted for lack of labor to cut it. Manila
hemp is as staple in the market as cotton. It is in univer
sal demand for rope and cordage. It has no substitute that ap
proaches it in excellence for those uses. It is produced only in
the Philippines. The other island staples, sugar and tobacco, have
competitive production -in many other parts of the earth. Hemp
is a Philippine monopoly. If -all the land in the islands suited to its
production were in action the supply would not overtake the de
mand near enough to affect the price. Yet, with a population
nearly as dense as that of Belgium, half of this valuable crop goes
unbarvested ! Nothing can more clearly disclose industrial condi
tions. It means that the Filipinos have not yet been taught to
work, and that the necessities of life for them are produced so
nearly spontaneously by 4 the bounty of nature that they feel no need
to toil.
«T-*HE public has "before it two recent reports and opinions re-
I spccting industrial conditions in the Philippines. One is by a
*\u25a0 civilian observer, who says that in order to teach the Filipinos
to work and to bring them and the islands to a high state of indus
trial efficiency and production it is absolutely necessary -to rigidly
exclude Chinese and other outside labor. This opinion is based
upon the theory, strongly held by those farthest from the scene,
that a tropicafpeople can be taught to work, regardless of their
physical necessities.
