a practically unanimous vote of the
House and Senate, entered upon a war
with Spain for the purpose of aiding
the struggling patriots of Cuba, the
country. without regard to party, ap
plauded. Although the Democrats rec
ognized that the administration would
necessarily gain a political advantage
from the conduct of a war which, in the
very nature of the case must soon end
in a complete victory, they vied with
the Republicans in the support which
they gave to the president. Wbon the
war was over and the Republican lead
era began to suggest the propriety of a
colonial policy opposition at once man
ifested itself. When the president fin
ally laid before the Senate a treaty
which recognized the independence of
Cuba, but provided for the cession of
the Philippine Islands to the United
States, the menace of imperialism be
came so apparent that many preferred
to reject the treaty and risk the ills
that might follow rather than take the
chance of correcting the errors of the
treaty by the independent action of this
country. I was among the number of
those who believed it better to ratify
the treaty and end the war, release the
volunteers, remove the excuse for war
expenditures, and then give the lilipi
nos the independence which might be
forced from Spain by a new treaty.
" In view of the criticism which my
action aroused in some quarters 1 take
this occasion to restate the reasons
given at that time. I thought it safer to
trust the American people to give in
pendencc to the Filipinos than to trust
the accomplishment of that purpose to
diplomacy with an unfriendly nation. 1
Lincoln embodied an argument in the I
question, when he asked : ' Can aliens
make treaties easier than friends can
make laws'?' I believe that we are
now in a better position to wage a suc
cessful contest against imperialism
than we would have been had the
treaty been rejected.
" With the treaty ratified, a clean
cut issue is presented between a gov
ernment by consent and a government I
by force, and imperialists must bear
the responsibility for all that happens
until the question is settled.
i If the treaty had been rejected, I
the opponents of imperialism would
have been held responsible for any in
ternational complications which might
have arisen before the ratification of
another treaty. But whatever differ

colonial policy, there never was any
differences as to the great importance

" If -the- treaty had been rejected
considerable time would have neces

out by the president either at the time
of the ratification of the treaty or at any
time af ter wards, it would have tak en the

But the resolution wan defeated by the
