... 1 Mf.t .1 l"l:
NEW YORK, Sept 1L Th. World
publishes a dispatch from Oibralter
giving an Interview with Admiral Dew
ey just before th. Olympla sailed for
New York. The World' correspondent '
asked the admiral for a statement of
his view aa to the Philippine policy.
"l'v. little to ay," he aald. "until
the recommendation of the commis
sion of which I am a member are laid
before President McKlnley."
"Did you read what Mr. Schumann,
one of the commissioners, had to say
upon his return from the Philippines?"
"As he is quoted In the newspaper h.
definitely explains my position. I
quite agree with what Mr. Schumann
says. Indeed, I attach great Importance
to hi opinions. He Is an able and
high-minded man, whoee Intelligence
and conscientious devotion to the task
assigned hlra won him my admiration.
W. were Invariably in accord."
Admiral Dewey has never expressed
regret that he asked to be mad. on. of
th. Philippine commissioner. On th.
other hand be has said that he was
glad that he was a member of the com
mission, and his greatest desire now Is
to put its repirt In the hands ot th.
president aa soon as possible.
"Toil may add this," the admiral
said, with great earnestness. "I hav.
not changed my opinion which I stated
early at Manila, then speaking of
knowledge of both people, that I con
sider the Filipinos more capable of self
government than the Cubans. ' I took
the keenest Interest in those Filipinos
who were employed at the arsenal In
Cavlte and often I was surplrsed by
their Intelligence. With fair and
properly directed opportunities ther.
are great poslbllltles In the Filipinos."
From Montpeller the admiral expects
to return to Washington for the ses
sions ot the Philippine commislon.
"I do not know," he said, "If Colonel
Denby will return by that time. If ha
has returned I hope to meet both he
and Mr. Schumann In Washington.
Of course. General Otis cannot leave
the Philippines, and I see that Prof.
Dean Worcester is still In the islands.
However, there should be little difficul
ty In making our formal report. I hope
we will get to work at once and keep
at It until our task Is finished. Any
how, Schurmann and myself can put
our heads together."
"I mentioned to the admiral what
was uppermost In the minds ot many
men who were at Manila what his of
ficers believe that had he been given
full powers as a governor general
there would have been no rebellion.
The admiral raised his eyebrows at
this, as one who gets information for
the first time. He was absolutely
