Dewey Talk Frankly.
Nv York, Aug. 22. A dispatch to
tlie World from London gives at sonio
length the London Daily News' reported
interview with Admiral Dewey at Na
ples. According to the correspondent,
Admiral Dewey began by saying that he
regarded Oavite as the battle which de
cisively turned the fortunes of war in fa
vor of the Americans. lie added :
"The Spanish Bhips fought well, all
The correspondent asked him if the
Filipinos were likely to he paeitiod soon.
The admiral replied :
"I have the question of the Philip
pines more at heart than has any other
American, because I know the Filipinos
intimately and they know I am their
friend. The recent insurrection is the
fruit of the anarchy which has long
icigned in the islands, but the insur
gents will have to submit themselves to
the law nfler being accustomed to no law
tall. 1 believe and allirni, neverthe
less, that the Philippine question will be
very nhort!y solved.
"The Filipinos are capable of govern
ing themselves; (hey have all qualillca
tious for it. It is a question of tinio, but
the only way to settle the insimeetum
and assure prosperity to the archipelago
is to concede self-government tu the in
habitants. That would be a solution of
many questions and would satiufy all,
especially the Filipinos, who believe
theniBelvfs worthy of it and are so.
"I havo never been in favor of vio
lence toward the Filipinos. The islands
re at this moment blockaded bv a tleet
nd war reigns in the inteiior. tl ii ab
liorniMl statu of things Bhould cease. I
should like to eoe autonomy first con
ceded and then nimxutiim mi,l,t h.
talked about. This is my opiuion.
"I should like to see violence at once
etouped. According to my view, the
concession of self government ought to
dje the most just and logical solusion."
