I have recommended to Congress
that in granting independence some
provision he made similar to what is
known as the Platt amendment in the
treaty with Cuba, which restricts the
ability of the new republic in borrow
ing of foreign governments and also
permits the United States to interfere
with the affairs of the .new republic in
case conditions of disorder should be
found to prevail. Such recommenda
tion does not come as an expression of
the views of the Filipinos; it Is my
own view of what would be desirable
to secure a feeling of confidence and
satisfaction on the part of all persons
who have already invested money in
the Philippines or who contemplate do
ing so in the near future.
But it is not right that independence
he itself should longer be delayed.

financial ability, in every way, the
