The following Is the full text of Henry
Watterson'R speech In New York last
week on our Philippine policy :
"No one can have followed the pro
gress of llie,war with Spain, from (he
declaration of hoatilitei by congreM at
Washington to the agreement anon the
terms of the treaty of peace by the joint
commission at Parii, without being im
pressed by the momentous change ef

conflict of anna to oat of proportion to
its consequence, both with respect to
ita origin and ita incidents.
"That war rarely ends where it began
or leaves the eorabatente ai it foaud

rule, acme basis for calculation, some
eeilmsteof chances Is vouchsafed the
more observant and astute among states
men and soldiers. Here there was none ;

possible that within Iesatban half a year

ence we should have witnessed In the
conditions with which the republic has
bad to deal 1 Far beyond the wisdom of
the educated few, the rude instincta of
the unlettered many unconsciously have
leaped at the troth ; we could neither
render back to Spain the fruit of Dewev'g
victory nor abandon It aa a temptation
to the rapacity of other oatlotii, nor
tarn it over to domestic anarchism. For
evil, or for good, we had become the
custodians of a rich possession and a

disregarding the counsels of the states
men who had made the constitution, the
people followed Jefferson upon a career
of achievement, the ruinous character of
which was freely and loudly proclaimed.
"It is easy to find arguments against
the proposed policy of national expan
sion, and its opponents have been neither
idle nor uninventive. Beginning with
the assumption that a colonial establish
ment was not contemplated, or provided
for, by the oiiginal instrument and the
'structural fabric under which we have
enjoyed so many years of prosperous
life as a nation and as a people, to' end
with dread prophecy of imperialism, it
has included all the incidents of hazard
and danger which an affectionate and
provident father might submit to a son
about to start uon a journey to un
known lands, or to engage in an enter
prise beyond the parental experience
(and reach of vision.
"Pointing to the Cbinse exclusion bill,
( it is asked why we should be seised so
soon with the deBire to embrace the mon
grel hordes of the Hawaiian isles and
the Philipoine archipelago? Pointing to
jthe unsolved problems of state and
J municipal government at home, it is
I asked how we can expect anything but
disaster in undertaking the government
of millions or half-civilised barbarians
; a.ien to our blood, institutions and lan
iguage. Taking lessons of ancient his
tory, It Ib set up that these things can
jonly be done through the army and
. navy, that the augmentation of the
I military power is ever a menace to
liberty, and that, once embarked upon,
a colonial policy beyond ses and a system
of satraps and proconsuls msaqoerading
aa governors, generals and the like, ap
pointed by the central power at Wash
ington, and too far away to be held to a
very strict accountability, It will be only
a question ol time when the (treat re
public of North America will go to keep
historic company with Greece and Rome.
Cannot (la Backward.
"It wilt bardly be denied by thought
ful men that these are weighty consider
ations if we sre to be influenced by the
lessons of human experience as they have
come down to as from time immemorial.
But, on Die other hand, it is pleaded in
rebuttal that nationa, like individuals,
cannot escape the dilemas of which life

becomes the opportunity of tomorrow,
and that back of nations as of individuals

shown that suddenly, onexpectedely this
divinity baa interposed to bring upon na

"We most go forward or backward,
and with entire honor and self-respect we
cannot go backward. Why did Dewey
win bis immortal victory in Manila bay?
But why was the Maine blown op in Ha
vana harbor? We cannot ignore Cuba,
with all that it implies. We are already
in und if puled possession of Hawaii and
Porto Rico. Why balk at the Philip
pines? The philosophy that prefers to be
killed for a sheep than a lamb joins its
forces to those of the philosophy that
would not take two itee at a cherry ,and
herein we have the self-complacent op
timiftn and the self-confident trftof be,

of taking what it plesses heaven to send
and of counting the cost afterward.
Kaw Order or Thlnga.
"The argument advnced by the in
trepid American optimist to meet the ill
omens advanced by bis1 equally" sme'ere"
and ondoubllng fellow countryman, the
American pessimist, runs somewhat in
this wiset "The old order has passed
away. A new order has come upon the
scene. Flic? bucolic republic of Franklin
and Jefferson Is gone. The splendid
government dreaded by Washington
and Jackson Is here. But circumstances

Bf Set Find wider Market.
"Overproduction is the most serious
danger that threatens ns. We must find
wider markets. Idle, yet willing, labor
has germinated the seeds of discontent.
We must make it outlets for its super
fluous energies. The world moves, and
it is moving toward the Orient. Europe
finds a vent in Africa. America cannot
afford to be different to Asia. Tbe sea-
front of human activity may within the
coming century be transferred from the
Atlantic to the Pacific. We must pre
pare to take our place in the procession
if need be, at the head of the proces
sionof the nations The lion has not
yet lain down with tbe lamb; and, until
he does so, mutton is good to eat. The
millenium has not yet made its advent;
and, until it does, that arbitration only
stands which is effected by the sword.
"The danger of militarism and the
martial spirit need not be gainsaid.
It is a danger we must risk, But let us
hope that mankind has made progress
in arts as well as in arms: that America
in the dawn of the 20th of the centuries
it not as Rome in the senitb of the first ;
and that forewarned against imperialism
we shall lie table to attend to Caesar
when we get to him. In a word.80,000,
000 of the people cannot be passive ; they
cannot escape the world's movement;
and sufficiently admonished by the iso
lation of China and its consequences,
the people of the United States prefer Jo
follow the lead and example of England.
The die was cast when Dewey raised
the Stars and Stripes on the other side
of the world, never too large and all too
narrowing, and for weal or woe rallying
under the banners alike of Christianity
and republicanism America is em

"Thus standa the debate between the
friends and the foea of national ex pen
sion. Which will vindicate the wisdom
of its forecast it is for time to discover.
The right snd the wrong of the argument
belong to tbe hereafter. But that the
victory of circumstance lies with the st
vocates of the new departure in national
policy, and that as composite parts of
tbe great republic of Cuba, Porto Rico
and the Philippines are already onrs,
mast be obvious to the careful student of

all sizes, and width ranging from six
inches to six feet wide, paved with from

places with petrified brick. The stores
are small, but packed with goods snd
