' SAYS DlftECT TAX ATI IN IS INADEQUATE Governor Admlta that Reoneat for Lower TarltT on American Imports , la Based on Sentimental - Grenada. WASHINGTON. Feb. (.Governor Taft appeared before the senate committee on the Philippines today with the intention ot taking up the senate rhlllppin tariff bill nd-of devoting hla attention ta th rev enue and tariff condltlona of the Philip pine Island., but , before beginning , with the subject be replied to a number ot ques tion by . Senator Carmack, bearing upon subjects . heretofore covered .by . the. gov ernor In hia testimony before the commit too. ; ' Mr. Carmack quoted from the report ot General MacArthar ot 1300 to the effect that there IS unity among the Filipino peo ple In. their opposition ' to the United States. Replying, Governor Taft said tho commission had not originally accepted tho general' conclusion, -and that th commis sion' tour Of thtf - archipelago had con vlnced thera that they were correct In their conclusion. Opposition Has Disappeared. "That originally the people of the Phil ippine Islands were much aroused, I do Lot doubt," ho continued, "but the opposl tlon doe not continue In it general aa pect Since the second election ot Presi dent McKinley th great majority' of the people of the Philippines have been ta vorable to peace and to the acceptance of the sovereignty of the United States, and It would be Impossible to continue the present - system of guerrilla warfare without the system of terrorism which now pre alls. That ia my conclusion and Insofar as the statement differs from General Mac- Arthur's report to that extent, I differ from htm." Governor Taft also said that he differed from General Bell on tho point of the gen eral desire of the Inhabllanta to main tain hoatllltte in Batanras. He did not believe the common people felt so inclined. Explain Present System of Taxation Taking up the question of the tariff, Gov ernor Taft explained the present system Nf taxation. In the Philippines, saying that under the decision of the supremo court no duties are now being collected on ar tlclea going Jnto the Islands from the United States. The plan of the coramis slon had been, to have no Internal system of taxation for the aupport of the general government of these Islands. Under the Spanish system there was a general poll tax, which netted about (7,000,000, while the receipts from tho customs wer. only about $5,000,000. Even children were taxed under, that system. Under Spain there also waa a tax. upon busineas enterprises and that, system had been continued to an extent .by the commleslqn. The commls slon also had decided to maintain tho polt tax to the extent of $1 per head on adult males, but to apply It only to paying the governmental expenditures ot - tha towns and the provlncea. The people of the Islands bad generally urged th. Imposition of the poll tax as necessary to get some of their numbers to work. Under th. Span ish regime tho plan had. been used to en' force a sort of slavery.. . . Manila's ..Taxable Property -Judge Taft aald that the assessable tax able property In .Manila .would - not exceed t30,QQO,000. This, he added, would., not x oeed ono-ixth.o( th valuation, of an Amer lean. city of the aama else, and yet Manila would require a far larger expenditure than would an American city of the same class. One considerable -Item of expense for ad ministration there would be that of main talntpc sanitary condltlona. It was necea sary at all ttmea to- guard agalnat the plague, and there are from 150,000 to 290. 000 leper in th entire archipelago. In our Judgment tha customs tax Is ab aolutelv necessary, aa . the rovernmen could not be supported by direct taxation Of course, if there wer no custom col lections on goods coming from the United States, the effect would be to nullify a tarlrr ccllectiona. aa Drac-tically all th importations Into the Phillppinea would be from the United States or from Bualn. which would be given free trade under the peace, treaty. Adjnatment of Tariff. We aald that the tariff adopted by the commission Is a apeclflo duty, amounting to from 16 to SO per dent, reduced to a advalorem system, and that the effort had been to place the higher tariff on luxurlea and the lower on neceasltiea, thua revere lng tha Spanish system. In reply to a question from Senator Cul hereon concerning the effect of placing lower tariff on American imports from the Philippines than on Phillppinea exports from the United States, Governor Taft ex plained that the commission had devoted no time to the Dlngley tariff law. "We wer looking solely after th interests of the Philippines," he said, "and it la true that the lower wo get dutlea on our goods ahlpped ' to tho United Statea the more trade will be developed." Governor Taft aald:- I am -bound to say at present our prtn Hnal reaaon for aeklna a reduction- Is sen. tlmental. The effect of a reduction of 60, or even 76 brr cent, on Philippines' lm ports Into the United States would not be arrest for the next few yeara. and any con ceeaion of that character would ba bene ficial In our dealing with the people of tho Phillppinea.
