AGAINST ALL COMERS.
Once more rumor connects a third
power with the Philippine question.
This time it comes from diplomatic,
and not naval, sources. There is a
suspicion at Washington that secret
negotiations are in progress for a
transfer of several of the islands to
Germany namely, Palawan and the
Sulu archipelago, both in the south
ern part of the Philippine colon'.
The rumor may be due to an un
founded apprehension, but it is cer
tainly gratifying to be assured from
"Washington that, if our peace com
missioners find it to be true, they are
to announce that our government
claims at once, and without parley,
all the islands, on the ground that
under the peace protocol Spain
had, and has, no right to enter
into any such negotiations. The
protocol expressly provides that the
United States shall occupy and hold
the city, bay and harbor of Manila
pending the conslusion of a treaty of
"peace which shall determine the con
trol, disposition, and government of
the Philippines. When Spain en
tered into this agreement it enjoined
itself from negotiating with any other
nation for the control, disposition, or
government of Palawan and the
Sulus, as well as Luzon and the man
hundred other islands of the group.
Palawan is a narrow strip of land
which separates the China and Sulu
seas for a space of 2G0 miles, and the
Sulu group stretches along between
Borneo and Mindanao for about 200
miles. For a long time each ws a
no-man's land, but in 1878 Spain
took possession of them, and made
them part of the colony of the
Philippines. Manila is the capital of
the whole colony, including all the
islands. There is no appeal possible
regarding the unity of the group
governed from that city.
Germany has no possessions in the
region of the Philippines. Its near
est colonies are Kaiser WilLelm land,
Bismarck archipelago, and the Solo-i
mon and Marshall islands. These do
not afford even a pretext for inter
ference with affairs in the Philippines.
It is not likely that Germany ever
would intrigue with Spain for any
part of the Phllir pine group in case
the United States should elect to de
mand the whole colon-, and should
let these intentions be known quickly
and clearly. If the Berlin govern
ment is taking the steps with which
rumor credits it, the reason is because
our own government 13 supposed to
be haulting between two opinions,
and Germany is determined rot to
be last in any general scramble that
we may see fit to precipitate. The
lesson is plain. If this country wishes
to secure its Oriental conquest peace
fully and decisively, without compli
cations with any foreign power, it
should waste no time in informing
the world that its intention is to hold
its own in every island of the Phil
ippines against all comers. Inter-
MR. M'KINLEY AND THE SULTAN
The Sultan's unrivalled collection
of ultimatums' bas been enriched by
a note from Mr. McKinley, warning
him frankly that he cannot repudiate
any part of the responsibility for the
American losses in the Armenian
butcheries. The time has long passed
when an ultimatum was able to ruffle
the repose of the Sublime Porte, or
indeed to excite- any other emotion
save a languid pleasure in the game
of diplomatic poker which it heralded
Mr. McKinley's firm note will there
fore not cause the Sultan to skip
But a new sensation may be in
store for him. . He well knows when
a European power warns, scolds,
threatens or commands him that
evey nation in Europe would fight
any other nation there rather than al
low it to fight him. They all stand
in too great dread of that beginning
the end whereof no European states
man can think on with composure.
But with us the matter is far dif
ferent. Our ultimatum may mean
"business." Certainly we have been
most reasonable and patient in at
tempting to persuade Turkey to settle
our just claims.
