WASHINGTON. July 11. An Administration-approved
plan for a more au
tonomous government in the Philip
pines as another step toward independ
ence was laid before Congress today.
Representative Jones, of Virginia, in
troduced the bill. Mr. Jones is chair
man of the House Insular committee,
and his measure declaring the purpose
of the people of the country as to the
future political status of Filipinos, fol
lows a long series of conferences with
the President Secretary Garrison.
Manuel Quezon, the Philippine Resi
dent Commission to the United States,
and Democratic members of the Insular
committee, all of whom have approved
Date of Independence Not Set.
The bill makes no attempt to fix a
date for Philippine independence. Its
preamble recites that it was never the
Intention of the people In the incipiency
of war with Spain to make it a war of
conquest or territorial aggrandizement
It asserts that it always has been their
purpose to recognize the independence
of the islands "as soon as a stable
government could be established there
in." It declares it to be desirable to
place in the hands of the Filipinos as
large control of their domestic affairs
as may be consistent with the exercise
in the meantime of the right of sov
ereignty of the United States.
Mr. Jones, explaining his Philippine
bill tonight said:
"Generally speaking the bill provides
for the Philippine Islands the moat lib
eral form of a territorial government
Its principal features affecting the
more important changes in the existing
organic act are those relating to the
enlarged powers conferred on the Gov-ernor-(aeneral
and the abolition of the
present Phillippine commission as such
and the substitution therefor of a
senate. The members representing
Christian provinces are to be chosen
by popular vote.
Non-Chrlstlane Are Represented.
The non-Christian tribes are to be
represented in the legislature by two
senators and nine representatives
appointed by the governor-general.
The governor-general is to
appoint the heads of the execu
tive departments. The only offi
cials to be appointed by the President
are the governor-general and the mem
bers of Supreme Court
"The governor-general is given a
limited power of veto over the acts of
the legislature, but the President would
have the power of absolute veto.
"The legislature, both branches to be
elective, with the exception of mem
bers representing the non-Christian
territory, has authority to legislate as
to all of the affairs of the islands, ex
cept that it cannot pass any law af
fecting the trade relations with the
United States, and cannot pass any
tariff or currency act nor any act dis
posing of public lands, timber or min
ing rights without first securing presl

Special Correspondence The Oregonian and

VERA CRUZ, July t Sincere in his
convictions as Is Secretary of the Navy
Daniels, there is little doubt but his
genial spirit would be somewhat per
turbed did he realize the irritation he
has aroused in the naval service by
the enforcement of his own ideas.
There is a spirit of resentment in the
service which has never been equaled
In the memory of the odest man in the
fleet and it is literally true that the
navy Is counting the days until March
4, 1917, when it has hopes of Mr.
Daniels' retirement from his present
post As long as he is secretary Mr.
Daniels' orders will be obeyed in letter
and spirit by every man, and there
will be not a word of complaint or
criticism in public, but the fact re
mains that the way In which the North
Carolinian can best please the service
today is by resigning.
Influence Is Demoralising.
It is probably true the service is not
entirely justified in its bitter feeling
toward Mr. Daniels, yet the feeling is
here a demoralizing influence, bad
for the service and bad for Mr. Daniels.
It is equally true, however, that that
man cannot be called a success who in
15 months transforms thousands of
men of the most diverse origins, per
sonalities and political views, into a
body which is absolutely a unit in con
demnation of many of his official acts,
and makes the Navy for the first time
in a generation a hotbed of seething
criticism and discontent
It is a rather Interesting fact that
half the blame for what Mr. Daniels
has done is put by the Navy upon the
broad shoulders of his preceptor, Mr.
Bryan. In fact, the two are constantly
linked together in the mind of the
service, and the retirement of Mr.
Bryan from his present seat of au
thority in the National Government
would cause almost as much rejoicing
as that of his colleague, the Secretary
of the Navy.
Difference Is Fundamental.
Those who have given this grave and
unpleasant situation highly regretta
ble in every way, regardless of who is
to blame most serious and dispassion
ate study have reached the conclusion
that the cause of the difficulty is funda
mental and is found in the vast gulf
between the point of view of Mr.
Daniels and that of the service itself.
The Navy considers itself a force col
lected and maintained for one pur
pose to serve as the sea defense of
the United States in case of war.
To carry out this purpose the Navy
seeks to do all that human ingenuity,
study and available resources can ac
complish for the development of such
efficiency as will give the best prospect
of American success in a contest with
a foreign foe. All that does not con
tribute to this purpose, all that in
terferes with or is contrary to this

WASHINGTON. Julyll. Information
was received from Mexico City by diplo
mats here today that General Huerta
would resign within two or three days
in favor of Francisco Carbajal. newly
appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs.
It was learned tnat the appointment
of Carbajal. who took office yesterday.
Is part of a general programme by
which it is hoped to make peace with
the constitutionalists. The Huerta
delegates to the Niagara conference
are understood to have been awaiting
this move for several days. Carbajal
has long been a member of the Su
preme Court of Mexico and May 31 last
was elected Chief Justice.
Realizing that the constitutionalist
Generals would disapprove the plan for
peace conferences with representatives
of General Hucra as proposed by the
mediators, because they do not wish
to have dealings in any form with Hu
erta. the suggestion was made to the
Huerta group that another man be
placed in power with whom the consti

Oregon Wild Blackberry and Cuth

Produces Latest Variety.
By pollenlzing the Oregon wild black
berry with the Cuthbert raspberry,
Father Schoener. parish priest of
Brooks, Or., and famous as a breeder
of roses, has produced an entirely new
variety of berry, which he tentatively
has named the "Willamette." in honor
of the valley in which It was created.
In pollenlzing the blackberry with
the raspberry. Father Schoener reversed
the process that produced the logan
berry. The new berry is described by J. A.
Curry, president of the Portland Rose
Society, who returned yesterday from
a visit with Father Schoener, as dark
red, in form like a raspberry, but three
or four times as large as the largest
"The fruit Is firm and of a most de
licious, distinctive flavor." said Mr.
Currey last night. "It has nothing of
the acid sourness of the loganberry,
nor of the heavy sweetness of the
raspberry. Nor does it resemble the
taste of its wild mother. It is neither
tart nor sugary, and cannot be de
scribed. It must be tasted."
Mr. Currey saw the plant In bloom
last Spring and describes the blossom
as closely resembling that of the

possibilities for the new berry.
