DEWEY A3 A PRESIDENTIAL CAN DIDATE. During Admiral Dewvy's long home ward journey so many conflicting re ports filled the press concerning his views on the Philippine question that the American public waited with In tense longing to catch his first ex pressions on the Olympla's arrival In New York harbor. It fell to the lot of the leading and about the only re- the specUble paper la the country oppos ing the president's Philippine policy to SHUie the first interview with the ad miral Dewey wheeled half way round on his Ir the Associated Press account of the heel and said briskly: 'There are a The entire Interview as published In the ' Times" Is too long for reproduc tion lu these columns, but the following extracts will serve to show the demo crats of Oregon what the admiral thinks of the Philippine situation and also of the gabble that has been heard about his acceptance of the presidential nomination. The 'Times'' says: Admiral Dewey was seen this morn ing on Ms llwhip. the Olympla, as she lay at anclusr at the southwest spit He was busy writing letters In his cab in th breech of an l-lnch gun at his elbow, when the first visitors to the flagship boarded. He made his ap pearance In a few minute on ths quar- ter deck, dressed In the fatigue uiu form of an .idmlral. and his elastic step showed that he was far from being the physical wreck thst the American peo ple have pictured to themselves. lie emphatically expressed his abso lute confidence In the ability of the United States to settle the question of the Philippines, and as emphatically declined, even with a show of Ir ritation, to talk about the attitude of Admiral Diedertchs at Manila. He effectively punctured the talk of his arceptimr the nomination for the presidency, and denied that ths Fill olnoe were capable of running their own government. He spoke In a san guine way of his health. Agulnaldo he stamped as a figurehead. When asked what he thought of the mention of his name for the presidency, the gallant seaman braced his should ers, thrust out his right hand expres sively and laughed good naturedly be fore he replied: Th-y don't know me.H -General Joe Wheeler has been mentioned as your running mate." Well, well. Is that true? A fine mess we two would make of It The army and nary. That's too good, really. to be true. Tou know the old saying. Cnce a soldier always a soldier. That covers Wheeler's case. Then it is once an Admiral, always an admiral," was suggested. Yes that covers my case." laughed Dewey. But the change would be only to anoih-r craft, the ship of state." was said. IiO much of a change, too much," replied Dewey. "Now, Wheeler has had some politic.! training in his life, but for me. my son, I know as :ivh l. nooUt politics as Bob here," said admiral, stooping to stroke the dog's head and dismissing the subject wall ctic o( iii expressive gee lutes. In answer to a question regarding the situation in the Philippines, Admiral ample. This trad would ordinarily be handled by steam craft, but Is now given to ths sailing vessels. This condition has resulted In stremtthenlng charter rates. Without the war ths rates would be high, for available vessels are scarce on the Paclrte. t .-a ..I Consumption is robbed of Its terrors by f 1L - I. .1 1L.1 1L.

On this slender hook, there fore, the conspiracy to rob Dewey of bis high place in the esteem of the people and to render the balance of his days the most miserable and dis appointing of h' existence has been going on apace In many widely sepa rated sec'lcns of die Natl -a. It now appears, however, that the New York Post was not the only paper to which the admiral accorded the courtesy of an Interview. In fact he has talked with several papers since his flret appearance oft Sandy Hook. These various Interview have all been of ahoiit the same purport, so far as the actual expressions attributed to the admiral are concerned, but the lm porunt difference may be noted that he Is more fully q ioted In some papers than In others.

"Do you consider that the Filipinos are yet capable of self-government, at least enough to allow of the withdrawal of the American forces?" 'No, they are not, but In time they will be. It la bound to come out right BounJ to." replied Admiral Dewey de cisively. "I 111 say this muoh though for the Filipinos. They are more capable of guvrnlng themselves than the Cubans ar. "Some of them, I doubt not. are now capah'.e of administering affairs, but the great majority of them have the crudi'St ideas of an honest and effici ent g-vernment.
