"The Civil Government bill, whtch
will come up for consideration in the
Senate tomorrow is an iniquitous
measure," aitid Senator Carmack of
Tennessee, yesterday, when a ked
his opinion. "As a member of the
Philippines Committee," continueti
the Senator, "I have had an opportn
nity of listening to the testimony at
first haul anti there is no ground
whatever for postponing the e~sb
llshmeut of a permanent governm* nt
in the islands. Neither is it n' cessa
ry that a census be token in oa'ler
that Congress may net inte'ligentiv.
The Filipinos are an intedlig--nt pn
ple quite capable of, at lezest, local
self-government. The eduenLzt'*d pco
pie of the ialandr. and by that term I
refer to those who can rend and write
Spanish, are of a psrticularly- high
clsass, many of them having -nojopil
the advantages of higher educt-~ioo
and their fathers before them for two
hundred years. Generals MacArthur
and Whittier, Dr. Schurmsn, lion.
John Barrett, ex-Minister to Siam,
Admiral Dewey and the educators
now Ia the Islands have all given
testimony as to the ediseatiou and
intelligence of the people and have
all practically declared them capable
of representation in a lepslative as
Isembly of their own; and this would
be particularly true were their gov.
erunent to be organized with an up
per chamber, the m mnb: r' of which
were appointed by the President. The
claim that it is nece-sary to take a
census is simply a ruse to prirmlt the
disposal, to favored capitalists, of the
'franchi'es and grants in the islands
before the ¶ eople have a voice in
such disposition. As an example of
the melio ls whibh are being followed
there, the first railroad, which will be
built with the Falipino's money, is to
be constructed from Manila up to a
place in the mountains which will be
used solely as a place of recreation
by the American residents during the
heated term. It will serve no indue.
trial purpose whatever. It is all
distressing. The exploitiation of the
islands by favored corporations, if
the administration's poiicy is success.
ful, will ae a disgrce to the fair
name of this country. Yes, I shall
mike a speech on the subject as will
a number of demncratic Senators.
"As to the conduct of the Amen-
can troops on the islands, that too is
a disgrace. Take the report of the
governor of Batangas in which he
shows that one-third of the popula
tion of ac'imated natives has died
during the last year of "maloria." I
am afraid that* if the andinistr:ation
were not systematically s'Jppressiug
the facts that form of malaina would
be spelled "S TARVATI 0N."
"Yes, I shall otter one amendumenit
which 1 sincerely hope will b. adopt
ed. It will provide that any Amnri
can corporation, company or indivi
dual who shall mike any contizact fur
slaves or slave labor, shall forfeit all
its rights, grants and franchises. I
am credibly informed that there are
American syndicates which have con
tracted with the J1rn chiefs fur the
performance of labor on certain rub
ber pilantations by the slaves belong
ing to such chiefs."
The action of the Senate in (is
carding the Chiuese Exclusion bill
reported by the Committee on Immi
gration and re-enacting the Geary
law was in accordance with the t're
diction made in my letter a week ago.
The influence of the large corpora
tions on the Pecific slope, which fear,
ed that the stricter provisions if tho
Chinese bill would necessitate their
paying higher wages, prove) all
sumfeient to induce the republican
senators to vote down the bill. Sena
tor Hanna, who announced himself
as the friend of the American work
ing man, repudiated the ides that
they would disapprove the action of
the Senators who favored the Platt
amendment substituting the Geary
law.
The Cuban reciprocity bill has not
yet passed the House of Represents.
tives. Tomorrow evening has been
set for the cklse af the general de
bate,-and Lih leaJe's say that it
wilt pass Saturday. That the bill
wil pass wiihout amendment is probe
ably a safe pr ilictiou but the gap
which it will leave behind it in the
republican ranks will not augar well
for the future success of that party.
"Tyranny," "blackmail," "hold-ups,"
are some of the terms with which the
beet sugar contingent describe the
methods by which the administration
has assured success. The New York
Press, the leading champion of the
extreme protectionist faction of the
tepublican party, characterizes the
present administration as "*govern
meat by blackmail." Whatever dif
ferences there may have been in the
past between democrats they never
compared In intensity or bitterness
with tha ruptures which are rapidly
forming in the republican columns.
Representative Swanson of Virginia
during a speech in favor of the reci.
procity measure was asked if he
expected to start a free trade move
ment in the republisan majority and
he replied, "We have already con.
verted them to 20 per cent of our
views," and that is what the opposi
tion fears.
The split between the President
and Congress, over constitutional
prerogatives, which I predicted weeks
ago, has materialized and a subucoim
mittee of the House Committee ('n
Mitary Affairs is searching the rec
ords for precedents which will justify
its passage, over his veto, of some of
the bills whlch Mr. Roosevelt has
rejected. The President claims that
it, is not within the province of Con
gress to set aside the findings of a
oourt,-marlial and restore to the rolls
of those henorably discharged from
the army or navy, the names of per
eons who have been dishonorably
dismissed. The House Committee is
greatly exercised over the claIm and
witl make every effort to refute it
and it is doubtful if the Prcsident
can muster a sufficient number of
friends In the lower House to support
his vetoes if the Committee decides
that its action will he sustaIned by
the courts. If the President Is cor
meet one of the ('hief sources of pen
sion frauds will be abolished but it
ivill also mean the curtailment, to a
very serious extent, of the power of
rep'ibli'an Congressmen to reward
their jpol~tic 11 creditors.
There is a o longer any doubt as to
the int'ntizoa of the administration to
ratire Gen'ral Miles. The Senate
Committee on Military Afisirs has
threateueI to hold up for all time the
coantirmation of Captain Crozier as
Chi'f of 'he Ordance Bureau and has
proteated with vigor against an ac
titan which alplears to be a punish
meet of the General for telling to
that committee what he believed to
be the truth in regard to the Root
army bill, but all to no purpose. Mr.
Roosevelt has determined to get rid
of Miles and no consideration of
nourtesy to the Senate or of policy
will prevent his carrying out his
purpose.
