O. llryant of rerliiles, New Me Iro. a member of the lust tnte legl laliire. suggesting a remedy for the lax trouble of till state. Mr. Hryanl pointed out lliul while many letter to the newspaper hud discussed luxn Hon evils and burden", none of Ihem had suggested remedy and he sug gested one. Mr. Ilryant'a plnn la simple enough, and !f the people run be brought to a realisation of how muih they would benefit by Ita execution thei'e I not much doubt thul It would be put Into effect. Iirlefly. the lloosivelt county man. who know something about our stutc leiilslnturen, from pemonnl Mrtlclp lion and ctinliu't. believe thai If the people of ihia Ktnie will wake up ami elect to the next hglslutur eel of lv( l-heuiled business men, that the worst of our luxation and ndnilnlstra live problems will aoon ! .creome. He point to various extravagances in our etnte and local government which older and rli h.-r stitle would not dure to commit, fhlef among ibese la the aaliiry rule fi r public ofltclula. Ha note thiit our supreme court justices receive O"0 a year while older elate ore content to pay their supreme court Judtc tt.OOU. Ihe figure which we uy our district Juducs. And he rail special alien lion to county nalarle, l which ha truthfully any the lam legislature paiff more attention than to anything elac. This utwntltin wa ull for the end of higher alurlea, instead of lower one. Mr. Hryunt ha made eome ex tremely practical HUKKcMion In the peoplu of New Mexico.' Thev hould be read with vara and diaestud llior' ughly. Two great difficulties aeem lo aland In Ihe wuy of an economy lcgllnture a Mr. Hryant and other aol!d cltlxen would have It. The first of them lie In the people themaalvea tha great sovereign people w ho persist In taking absolutely no Interest In their legisla live nnmlncea until alter thoy are iiominuted and generally until after they are elected, nnd who utter elec tion and after Ihe legislative session nnd after the damage has all been flone, decluim loudly at the remit of I heir own carclewme and neglect of their own Interest. Th other difficulty la In the ex treine reluctance of business men ol the right anrl for any kind of legls- lative service. It la difficult to gat Aiusiiic men to tuke posts on our city councils; uml much more d'ffleult I net them lo give up sixty day of ttmtj i ml serve thut time In the legislature! nway from home and buslneaa Inter ftn. These same buslnes men de claim quite a loudly aa other cltlcani w hen recklem legislation raise taxes and wreck "efficient administration. Jiut they will not come forward with enough patriotism to do legislative duly. Ho lung us business men. without jiullllcul ambition, stny at home, and so long us ambitious politicians are a reudy und w.lling and eater a Ih'-y lire to break Into the legislatures. Just so Ion will we continue in h' e legls luluies like our lust.

' We have undertaken a great experiment In al truism Our policy ha bean made fun of and suoffrd ut by the nations of Europe, but, because of Its great siicce, they have tn some degree be gun lo imitate us. our venture thu far hu been successful but It I far from completed. The Filipino have creditably filled muny minor offices but almost without exception hitva failed when they hue been given con trol over such Important matters n public work, poslofflce department, public sanitation, bureau of agricul ture, etc. There exm no real unity of purpose among truss of the civil- Ixed tribe to say nothing of the many non-Christian people and the Mo hammedan of the southern Islands.

We have paid Ihe coat uf a count and geixlctic survey Of a parcel of land that we bought and have apent some moneys In lighting the coast and in fortilylng Corrlgedur. The civil government, (mm the llin4 of tha first rhoo leu. her tn the pres ent day, has not cost Ihe home gov ernment n cent. 'i.

Thl affords us a base for op erations of great strategic Import ance, To even hope to reduce this loft a notion, let us suy Japan, would have to send there a lurge fleet and a atrong army which would require muny transport. The (leel and transport service remaining for in vasion of Ihia country would thr'eby be very seriously weakened und we would be ullnwed considerably more of much needed time (or preparation.

Keen manvtof th ardenr supporters of the Philippine bill hav. admitted thai it will be many c. before thai condition I brought about. The fulfilling of the provision of th" bill would meun the iwiting if the rein of government ini0 the hand of a small group of mestu.. politician md the consequent practical peonage of the, great mas of the people unH such tin. aa the island were tuken over by some nation, as J.ipuu. Wa ha,v promised uliiniaie Inde pendence to the Filipino und not l a little group of "politico." To turn iho Island over at thi tune Is a plum brtttch of truat to the Filipino peoplu. There are other cunstdcrutlnnti which should be understood 1. Commerce. Dr. Edwin K. Klo. son. tn the The Independent for Feb ruary tH. nays: "The development of transportation nnd tropical agricul ture in recent year hu shown thut the prosperity of a commercial coun try I dependent upon the po isessinn of extensive territory In ihe tropic.' In !!' our trade with the Philip pine, export and Import, was lt.tl uT. of which we imported nearly preyed for hundreds of years. The great mass of the Filipino peoole are illiterate and dependent. The group of men who are now clam oring for Independent have from the first fought every attempt .by ihe American government to niuke tha la- twrmit man a landholder. .Whul wl'l thev do If they hold I be rein i f power? 3. The U-gal Quest In. Can we renounce all responsibility for the ac tions of those for whom w have been sponsor for so long a time'.' We pro pone lo "withdraw nnd stir ender all right of possesion. Jurisdiction, super vision, control and sovereignly, but will Ihe other nation so eusily Irre u (rum responsibility Bcrap of Paper. And now lher come another very pertinent ques tion which I pointed out by the out look in It Issue of February 16. This Is an article which 'every Amcricui. should read. In the treaty of peace at the close of our war with Spain a vltul distinction wa mud between our occupancy of Cuba and the cession by Kpsm to ihe t'nlte.i mates 4 the Philippine Islands. In Article Ufi it Is "understood that any obligation as sumed in ihia , treaty by the I'nitel Htate with respect to Cub are lim ited lo the tune of its occupancy '.hereof." There la no such limitation placed upon the obligation ussumcd by u in respect to thu Philippine and if a treaty haa any meaning what ever we cannot avoid our promises mudo regarding the Philippine Islumlx In Article 10 of Ihe ueuty we read: The inhabitants of the territories over which fpain relinquishes or cede her sovereignty shull be secured in Iho Iree exercise of their religion." Re llglou freedom is one of he most fundamental factor of liberty. The Philippine bill with the Clarke amend menl contains absolutely no provisio.i whatever looking to the fulfillment lit our treaty promise. Neither doe sJih bui even suggest any method or pro posal for guaranteeing to the peoplu of the Philippine islunds a democratic government, freedom of education or uny oihel of tho free Inattlutlons which we ourselves enjoy and which we have g.ven them th reasonable hope of obtaining. fhall the American people stand hack and see their treat lus violated and their promises to I he common people of the Philippine broken to satisfy the individual ambition of u group of politician whether in tho Philippines or in the United Mutes?
