Washington, June 'It is for the
best interest of both the United
States and, the Philippines that the
independence of the latter country
be recognized and established at
this time."
This was the keynote of the re
quest of the Philippine Mission for
an immediate and final solution of
the Philippine problem, made be
fore a joint meeting of the Philip-
pine Committee of the Senate and
J the Insular Affairs Committee of 1
i the House which was called specially j
to receive the memorial and argu-1
meats of the representatives of the t
Philippine government and the Fil-i
ipino people. I
Manuel L. Quezon, President of j
the Philippine Senate and chairman j
of the Philippine Mission, presented
the memorial, and declared that
the Filipino people would be "sorely
disappointed" if independence was
not granted soon. He declared that
the Filipino people had no fear that
Japan had designs upon the Isdalns
and were perfectly willing to accept
independence either with or without
a guarantee of protection by the
United States, as the latter might
think best.
Francis Burton Harrison, for six
years Governor General of the Phil
ippines, urged that Congress carry
out its promise of independence. He
said that the people in his opinion
were fully able to maintain a stable
government. He declared the Fil'p'no
officials were as intelligent and
trustworthy as any men he had ever
met anywhere in the world.
The memorial was "a formal pe
tition that the sovereignty of the
Filipino people over the Philippine
Isla ds be recognized"' by the United
States without further delay.
"Such a step," declared the peti
tion, "will insure the maintenance
of a firm and lasting friendship be
tween the two people, and will fos
ter the free development of their
commercial relations in the future;
it will place on a high level the
honor of America by the fulfillment
of her repeated promises to grant
freedom to the Filipino people, and
thus perpetuate in the hearts of the
Filipinos the sentiments of grmtude
and affection which they now en
tertain towards the American people.
"It is confidently hoped and be
ieved that the Congress will not
suffer this opportunity to pass by
at a time when the whole world is
so anxious to establish international
relations upon newer and more
solid foundations of universal jus-
ucr iiuu uoeny. America nas con
stituted herself, and has justly been
recognized, as the champion of the
rights of humanity in the pres -nt
war, and due in a great measure to
her heroic efforts and generous aid,
the world has been saved from the
thraldom of greed and oppression
and the rights of small and weaker
nations to exist in like manner as
the great nations, vindicated.
"The recognition of the indepen
dence of the Philippines at this time
will constitute an object lesson to
the whole world in respect of the
lofty and altruistic aims which have
prompted America to take part in
the great war, for it will . furnish a
practical application of the doctrine
proclaimed by her of giving to all
p ople the right ofself-deteimination.
For the first time in the history
of colonial relations a subject and
alien race comes to ask the sever
ance of their political connection
with the soverign nation without
recounting any act of injustice done
to them and demanding reparation
therelor;but rather with a feeling
of gratitude and affection, and with
the object and tor the purpose of
strengthening the bonds of moral
and material union which have
bound the two peoples together in
an endeavor to establish the reign
of justice, democracy and peace
in tne worm.
"It is, therefore, our purpose to
base our petition not on the injus
tice which might be found by rea-on
of the forced subjection of the Fi
ipinos, but on the justice of our
claim that the national sovereignty
of our people be fully recognized
in order that we may freely fulfil
our own mission and contribute to
the spread and establishment of
democracy and Christian institution
in the far East,
"The people of the Philippines
have organized a government under
the terms of the Jones Law which
has been in operation for nearly
three, years and which has offered
complete evidence that conditions
are ripe for the establishment of an
independent government that will
be stable and capable of maintair-
iag law and order, administer ju -
ace, promote the welfare of all the
inhabitants of the islands, and dis
charge as -veil its international obligations,"
