Hill Tells Conditions in Islands
From Personal Observation.

Trade Door Is Opened.
WASHINGTON. Jan. G. In ft session of
five hours today, the House placed on rec
ord a speech In favor of the Philippine
tariff bill, one against It, and a 20 min
utes' talk for tariff revision according to
the Republican demand of Massachusetts.
Hill of Connecticut occupied three hour,
and was listened to with the greatest In
torest in detailing the knowledge he
gained from two visits to the Philippines,
the last as a member of the party of
Secretary Taft last Summer. Ho paid
particular attention to the tobacco feature
of the measure, and explained away much
of the misapprehension as to the enor
mous products that might be expected
from the Islands. Their territory, he said,
was small, and the fertile lands still fur
Mondcll, of Wyoming, who has led the
fight against the bill In the Interest of
the boet-sugar Industry of this country,
spoke vigorously against the measure and
- against the policy of helping the Filipino
people by granting them open markets in
the United States. He said the passage of
tills bill would be the death-knell of the
beet-sugar industry In the United States.
The abolition of the tariff on hides was
pleaded for by Lawrence of Massachu
setts, who presented the position taken
by the Republicans of that state.
Information regarding immigration from
Austro-Hungary contained in reports by
Marcus Braun was asked for from the
Secretary of Commerce and Labor.
A map showing the quality of the land
- in the Philippines was brought into the
House, and Mr. Hill also had several sam
ples of the tobacco raised there. The
country, he said, followed In a remarkable
degree the physical feutures of Japan,
where the tillable area was only some
thing more than 12 per cent. The census
reports give 9 per cent for the total
area as agricultural land of the Philip
pines he said. In describing the popula
tion, he said that slavery existed among
the Moros. It was a mild form of slavery,
but slavery, nevertheless.
There were, he said, no Filipino people.
There are S7 tribes, speaking over 50 lan
guages. There Is no means of communi
cation, no roads. About H per cent can
road; 3 per cent read Spanish. Under
those circumstances, Mr. Hill said, a high
order of intelligence could not be ex
lected. Will Be Great Growth.
Mr. Hill visited the islands with Secre
tary Taft and his party, last Summer, and
his information was based on personal ob
servation. He predicted that In nO years
the population would be 50,000,000 instead
of 7,500,000, as at present. The whole am
bition of the population was simply to
subsist. If a native were paid 25 cents a
day he would work long enough and no
longer than to make enough to last dur
ing the week. If the wage was doubled
the time of work would be halved.
No human being can comprehend, he
said, the primitive methods which prevail
in the making of all crops in the islands,
unless through personal obser'atIon. It
was the wildest imagination to suppose
that at any time would Filipino industry
ever be disastrous to American Industry.
Reverting to Mr. Hill's statement about
slavery, Mr. Clayton (Ala.) asked:
'Is It true, did 1 understand the gentle
man to say that slavery still exists among
the Moros; the traftlc In human beings,
where men and women are sold for J50
"I did not see any of this traftlc," re
plied Mr. Hill, "but 1 believe slavery ex
ists. These people are savage, and there
is no civilization."
Would Protect His Own.
While he was a protectionist from the
crown bf his head to the soles of his feet,
Mr. Hill said, he was a protectionist
against foreign countries and not as
against our own possessions. As a Re
publican, Mr. Hill said, he thought there
was cause of criticism of the excessive
cost of American goods in the Philippines,
but the fault was in America and grew
out of the diversion of opinion as to the
policy to be' pursued.
Mr. Hill said a visit to Hongkong almost
convinced him that the Philippines may
even be a profitable financial investment
for the United States. In 50 years, he
said, England has developed the Island of
Hongkong from a rocky waste Into a
flourishing commercial city, and this de
velopment, Mr. Hill said, was in the face
of violent opposition. With a commercial
city in Manila to start with, he said, the
American opportunities in the Philippines
were far greater than the British oppor
tunities were in Hongkong.
Mr. Hill reviewed at length the tobacco
industry in the Philippines, explaining
the primitive methods of tobacco culture
nnd the limited manufacture of smoking
and chewing tobacco and cigars. Ho said
single factories in the United States make
more than the entire output of manufac
tured tobacco in the Philippines.
Few Chinese There.
Speaking of the argument that the
cheap labor of the Orient would be
brought in direct competition with
American tobacco-workers by a re
duction of the duty on Philippine to
bacco, Mr. Hill called attention to the
Tact that American exclusion laws
lceep Chinese out of the Islands and
contract labor cannot bo employed. He
said practically all the cigar and cigarette-makers
are Filipinos, few Chi
nese being now employed. As all
work of this sort is piece work, he
said, a man's earnings increase as his
ability increases. Mr. Hill said the
manufacture of a first-class hand
made cigar is almost as expensive as
In the United States.
Mr. Hill summarized the purely com
mercial effects of the proposed reduc
tion in the tariff, saying- the stimulus
to industry in the islands will result
in the preservation of Philippine in
terests, which must sink Into ruin if
relief be not afforded. He said the
greatest benefit, however, will be the
increased market in the United States
and the islands for high-grade pro
ducts at good prlccB.
Charily at Homo First.
Mr. Mondcll of Wyoming was the
next speaker. He said he had ap
proached the discussion with the full
realization of obligations of this Gov
ernment "to the Filipinos, and also with
a realization that charity should begin
at home. Beet sugar production In
the United States, he said, was a child
of Republican legislation, which was
protected until the United States de
cided to do something; for Cuba.
' Mr. Mondell admitted that he voted
for the Cuban measure, , but said he
um never derived anycomfort iron
the results of his vote." Ho declared
there. was-an understanding then that
there was to be no further reduction
in sugar tariffs.
The proposed concession would make
a spoiled child of the Filipinos by
building up great haciendas and not
benefiting the masses.
"We 'are giving the Philippines every
advantage in our market, advantages that
no other country ever enjoyed," said Mr.
Mondell. "and In return we are paying
tribute to the Moro In Internal revenue
tax on goods imported to the United
Mr. Mondell ridiculed the statoment of
friends of the bill that only 9 per cent of
the Philippine lands are tillable, and de
clared there were no Islands In the world
so fertile nnd capable of such extensive
Filipino Works Well.
Until the "united official detraction"
from the working qualities of the Filipino
and the richness of Philippine lands. Mr.
Mondell said, the Filipino was regarded
as an effective worker. He urged that
the American farmer who raises beets is
the first man to be considered and the
beet raisers, he said, could not share
Secretary Taffs eagerness to benefit the
Filipinos at the expense of the Ameri
To give the Filipino a bounty on the
natural product of the Islands, Mr. Mon
dell said, would make him a mendicant
at the feet of this Republic for all time
to come. He was willing to vote any
amount of money to aid distress In tho
Philippines, but he opposed building up
their Industries at the expense of an
American Industry. Ho predicted that the
bill. If parsed, would destroy tho beet
sugar Industry in this country.
"Charity begins at home," was the con
cluding sentiment expressed by Mr. Mon
dell, who hold the floor for an hour and
a half. He was warmly congratulated
at Ills conclusion.
Help Needed nl Home.
Mr. Lawrence, of Massachusetts, spoke
brlofly In reply to the remarks of Mr.
Clark regarding the tariff movo In Mas
sachusetts. Mr. Lawrence said the ways
nnd means committer had heard and
answered the tariff prayer of the Filipino.
Now it Is time the people at home should
be recognized In their wants. There had
been a long time demand for free hides,
free coal, free lumber nnd free alcohol
in the arts, he said. The Republican
party had taken the position that the
tariff should be revised to meot existing
conditions. "I believe that the time has
come." said Mr. Lawrence, who spoke
of the action of the Massachusetts Legis
lature which had declared to that ef
fect. While revision was needed, he said, the
Republicans of Massaohusetts still hold
their allegjance to the principles of pro
tection, and therefore they did not wish
revision through an alliance with the
free-trade policy of the Democratic party.
DOLLIVER WILL FIGHT DELAY
Says Senate Should Have Hale Bill
at This Session.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 6. (Special.)
Senator Dolllver. of Iowa, will resist
to the utmost any attempt of the com
mittee on interstate commerce of
which he is a member to defer action
upon railroad rate legislation until the
house has passed a bill. The present
majorltj' of the committee is opposed
to giving the Interstate Commerce
Commission power to change rates.
Three of the Republicans, however.
stand with the Democratic members for
regulation as generally defined by the
President. They arc Dolllver, Cullom,
and Clapp, thus placing those who fa
vor regulation in the majority. If Mr.
Dolllver can get the support of the
Democratic members he can force the
committee to report a rate bill.
"I m opposed to any delay of the
committee." He declared today. "Should
we await, the action of the House of
Representatives before reaching1 a de-
eisjon we would receive and merit the
ridicule and condemnation or the peo
pde. The Senate is entitled to have be
fore it a rate bill. If tiie committee can
not agree upon one. let it report all of
them and have them placed unon the
calendar. There should be a rate regu
lation Din ana it win not be the com
promise that some people say it will."

Objects to Taking or Picture.
Everything was proceeding finely, al
though It was evident lhat Mr. Rogers
was not giving up any information, when,
without a word of warning, he leaped to
his feet, his face blazing with anger. In

"What oil company or companies arc
you connected with?" asked Mr. Hadlcy.
Then came a wrangle, Mr. Rowe ob
jecting, Mr. Sanborn refusing to recognize
his right to interfere, and Mr. Rogers
refusing to answer.
"Are you connected with tho Standard
Oil Company, of Indiana;, the Waters
Pierce Oil Company, of Missouri, or the
Republic Oil Company, of New York?"
asked Mr. Hadley.
"Yes. with tho Standard OH Company,
of Indiana, as director," replied Mr.

"Do you know who owns a. majority

decline for personal reasons." He refused
to give these reasons.
Asked another question about this com
pany. Mr. Rogers said:
"I know that It Is in the oil business,
but that is all I know about it."
"You feel reasonably sure of that?"
"I believe so. I havo not been there
for some years." t
Mr. Rogers said he did not go to Indiana
within a few months to examine Standard
Oil properties there, but was In Kansas
in the course of the last year.
Stayed Out of Missouri.

"Did you avoid Missouri for fear that
you might be subpenaed in this case?"

"I cannot answer."
"Take time to think it over."

"Is it not a fact to your knowledge

"If It Is a fact that the Standard Oil

of Missouri and tho Waters-Pierce Oil
Company In the southern part, and
neither will sell in the territory of the
