Speaking of the condition In the Philippine!, ho ealdt "Peace ha been practically re stored. There Is still a little Insur rection In Samar, but aside from that everything I fairly quiet. I do not believe, however, that tho retention of the lilaud will bo profitable, as the government will have to expend a great deal of money on them even tn time of pence. It cost now between $00,000,000 and $79,000,000 n year to keep the soldier there, and even If the number Is reduced to 30,000 tha expense will still be greater than the profits from tho Islands will warrant. The islands are unquestionably rich, but their benefit to the United Mutes will not materialize until a generation or two lias passed nnd the ked for an army In the islands has gone." In regard to China, Mr. Shafroth says: The trade of the United State with China ha grown rapidly, nnd this country will soon be keeping pnea with the struggle for supremacy. The danger of tho Invasion of tho Amer ican field by the Chinese I not very great as long n the exclusion act 1 In force; but a Hit expires next May, tho problem will be one for the gov ernment to again consider.
