The Dill'erelnce Between Imii perialisml
and the Goveriilelt rum atled by
Our Itevolutionary iFathers.
Tho sp -(ch of Hon. Wa. J. Bryan in
Columbia s one of the at'est olforts of
this gifteo and accompished leader,
and his c1 a ussion of the Philippine
question merits a careful perusal in
every household. Mr. Bryan spoke as
follows :
I want to speak for a little while
about the Philippine (uestion. It is
not surprising that tile party that
favored- the income tax and favored
bimetallism and oppo3ed industrial
trusts should also stand by the princi
pies upon which this government is
founded and sbould o)poso the conver
sion of a homogenous republic into a
heterogenous empire. I say it is nlot,
strange, but it is strange that the Ie
publican party that thoug ht in 1i-M;
that this country was not big enough
to attend to its own business is now big
enough to attend to the business of
every other country in the World.
Some who are in favor of the Imperial
polLcy -hide behind the doetri ie, or. be
hind the term, expansion biul tlere
is dilference between expansion and
imperialism. 10xpanslon descriues the
extension of the limits o.' a repuli) :
imperialism describe, an empi- e, wh iclh
is a dilfcrent thing from a 1.( pblie -
if you want to know the dilfert nce be
tween a republic antd an tmlpire, let
me state the di ferenb in it few words
We bad 25,000 soldiers in the regular
army in 1696. The Presi.d t,lt a:-kit
for 100,000 in December, 0SiJ, and he
asked for that increr.se two nlionths be
fore there was an uprising in the
Philippine islands. Why did we nc ed
an army four times as great y Be
cause the adminhitration was contem p
lating an imlperiai poliey. What is
the dilference between a republic and
an empire ? Twenty-line thouand
soldiers were enough for a rejubilic of
70,000,000 of people and it takes four
timti.s as many soldiers or 1n empire
with 10,000,000 more. This is the dif
fereneo. Twenty-five thousanti jso:d it rt
for 70,000.000 who govern tnemselv.
but it take' 75,000 it) govern ight
muillons without their coneent. llure
we have a republic, ther - a military
despotism. The 1ag 1. er'e standj fcr
the rights of those wh ) pty the taxt s
and have a voice in the laying of tm in,
and there it stands for the o(ous
doctrine of taxation without re)rcsen
tation-a Governmen without the con
sent of the governed. That is the dif
ference between a rep blie and an t m
pire. Webster has s iu " an empite
embraces a variety in races and a
diversity in governm.At." Our -
pire is to embrace both a variety in
races and a diversity In Government:
for when we gat the Fli pinos-thirty
di flerent races of them--we'll havt
variety (J ract s enough to sati1fy tLhc
most fastidious. ( Laughter. And we
will have a diversity in Govern irlenit.
that 'S suilEicen 10 1o di-tingui:i a re
Public from an empire. We tile a- keo
to have one tariti in this coulilly and
another tariff in arothe r part oI the
empire. If you want to see a stilt
more marked contrast 100 me r.:n ind
you that according to the conltitultion
as amended since the war, no man in
the United States can own another
man ; but we new pay the Sultan of
Sulu for the privilege of ly;ng our tlag
over the Sultan's palace, atrd the slave
who works beneath that flag is not to
I t free, but he is able to buy hiniself
free when le can make enough work
ing for nothing a day to pay for the
market price. (Laughter.)
This is the doctrine that is now
brought to American people by a party
that has lived for 30 years i upon the
the boast of what it did( in regard to'thie
black man. Don't yotu think that is
d iversity in Government ? And yet,
my friends, we are juet commeineing
on an impierial policy, and you can ex
poe. thoat the d illieuities will multiply
as we progrors. What defense do you
hear given of the imperial polIcy y I
have heard three. Feirst: Ther-e is
money In it. Second : That, God Is in
it. The third :That we are in it and
can't get out. (Laughter.) I ventur-e
you never heard any othe ar-gument..
Take a speech or an impierialist, and
you will find that ther-e is not an argu
mfent that does not fall ondler one of
those three heads. ivery Imperialistic
speech contains at, least two of these
arguments. Lot me give you the sub
stance of the most of the speeches.
The imperialist speaker will start out,
-by teilling you1 that Godl did it: that
God opened the dloor and pushed us in
and shut the door. That G;od polited
out the way, and that, we are unader a
r-eligious duty to prosecute a war of
conquest because God directs it,, and
after baving shouldered the whole
thing onto P'rovidence he lowers is
voice and says, " It will pay.' E'ver-y
argument made In favor- of hnplerfalb-ml
is but the elaboration of the speecei
made by Secretary Gage at Salvannlabh
Ga., more than a year ago, in ryhiebi
he said that the Philanthropy and live
per cent. would go band in hand.
-"Philanthropy and five per cL-nt. -"
Trhey have always traveled together in
* wars of conquest. Philanthropy chio
* roforms the conscience and live per~
.cent. tills the pJockets of the conquer-ed.
Whenever philanthropy gets weary
and rests for a while by the wvayside,
five per cent. goes on and nlevelr feels
lonesome. 1 do not~ mean to say that
the imperiist does not, read his Bible,
,but I do mean to say he is mixed onl
his quotatIons. 1 heard a man who
got, confused about the Parables and
tried to tell of the good Samaritan and
got it mIxed with the parable of the
sower, and as he remernbored It It
read like this :" A man went from
Jerusalemf to Jericho and as ho went
he foli among the thorns and the
thorns sprang up and choked hInm."
is intentios wore good, but his mnem
ory was defective, and so the im
perialists are mixed up on the beauti
tudes. They know there is a promise
to the meek and to the peacomaker-,
and knowing thait we entered the war
as peacemakers, they have been tryIng
to recall that, jpromise, anud tbey have
got it mIxed up) with tile prlomiise to
the mock. They have it like this:.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they
shall inlerit the earth. But that ls
Snot the Bible. "Blessed ar-e the pOace
rnakers, for they shall be called the
V children of G0od ;" Biessed are the
mec k. for th y .htoll inherit the evrt' ,"| 1
a.d if any of VOU IIie acquainted witli I
an imperialI you V will bear me cut in I
the stateme(int, that he dots not show
a meeknees thi t entitles him to claim
that reward pi omised to the mic( k. If
we want to be called pr aceimakers, let
us he eatit lied wit i Goi's reword and
not 0fim1 the ( arth for making peace
