dom of Ireland, of
Poland ami of the
Czeeho - Slovaks,
nnd not for the
indi'pciidi nee of
the Philippine Is
lands?" This was the
Co in in I s s I oner
of the Philippines
to l he member
ship of the House
of Rome -entaives
In a speech whieh was given very
.close attention and was frequently ap-
I "At one time," said Commissioner
Gabaldon, "Congress had before It no
, le.-s than thirty resolutions epr sji,,'
, sympathy with the aspirations of the
! Irish people, If not netualy urging Eng
land to grant independence to Ireland.
At that time, also the Filipinos wero
knocking at your door. Out of the
womb of war, many European repub
lics wero hoi n, and America has re
joiced to uphold the same. And .et
the claim of the Filipinos Is still tin
hooded. .Must there be exceptions,
then, in International Justice?
"My plea, gentlemen of the Ameri
can Congress, is that you ignore no
longer th repented requests of a de
serving people for an independence
Hint rightfully belongs to them. Tim
granting of Independence now affords
tho United Stales a golden opportunity
to give to the world unanswerable
proof of Its sincerity, Its consistency
and its altruism. It will be tho great
est example of square dealing In the
history of the ages.
"Do not think we are not appre
ciative of all you have done for us.
Wo are. America has truly treated
the Filipino people as no other nation
has ever treated an alien race In all
history. Tho high points of the Amer
ican policy In the Philippines have
boon consistently Inspired by altruism.
Wo know that you wero actuated In
your labors by tho desire to contrib
ute to our own we' faro.
'..ud .e love jum perhaps most of
all for your solemn promise to grant
us (lint which wo hold dearer than life
itself -our freedom. Independence is
our naiional ideal. It Is our all ab
sorbing aim. It grows stronger every
hour. For tho spirit of nationalism
never dies. Much less can it he sub
dued. We believe that we can never
hope to bo a sturdy nation if wo are
to rely forever on the magnanimity of
tlie rnlted States.
"America's task In the Philippine
Islands is finished. What you have as
sumed as your sacred obligation in
that part of the world lias been ful
filled. A people with a medieval sys
tem of institutions lias been trans
forme.d into a conscious nation, iin
I bued with all that Is modern in tho
I activities of nations. And if you give
I us independence our gratitude to you
j will increase a thousand fold ; It will
last foroer if you keep faith with us.
"There Is but one issue In the Phil
ippine question, and that is: Is there
today a stable government on the Is-
lands? In the Jones law you promised
i independence upon tho establishment
of such a stable government. Your
own fiovernor-Ocnoral has officially
reported that there is a stable gov
ernment in existence today, and we
also have submitted plenty of evidence
to substantiate its existence. There-
i fore, wo hope and expect America will
. now carry out Its pledge."
