A. Jones of Virginia, chairman of the house committee on ' insular affairs. Representative Jones' suggestions for Philippine independence, which have been considered favorably by President elect Wilson, were opposed by Representative Sherley (democrat) of Kentucky, while criticisms of President Taft and Governor General Cameron Forbes brought a sharp re ply from Representative Murray (de mocrat) of Massachusetts. The speech of Mr. Jones was "both a demand for independence and a se vere arraignment of American admin istration in the islands. Representative Murray charged him with having "slandered Cameron Forbes" and "defamed President Taft." Mr. Jones denied these charges, but Insisted that the administration of the islands had violated at least the spirit of the laws governing the Phil ippines. The dispute brought out the fact that an investigation of Philippine af fairs recently had been discussed by the house committee on insular affairs, i*but no action taken. Representative Murray, a member of the committee, declared that had he known Chairman Jones intended "to charge Governor Forbes with being a grafter" he would have insisted on having Governor Forbes brought be fore the committee, where he could reply to the attacks. "I have not charged Governor Forbes with being a grafter," retorted Mr. Jones. "You have been unutterably unjust to him in the speech you have made," said Mr. Murray. Mr. Murray further declared many members of the insular committee "were wandering if it is wise to com mit ourselves and the party" to sup port of the Jones bill, which would give the Filipinos independence in eight years. He declared the United States should not withdraw from the Philip pines until it had made treaties of neu- trality with other nations, so Japan could not seize the islands. Last Days of D.
