Declares It Not Right That Free
dom Should Longer Be

Gov. Gen. Harrison
As to the question of the stability of
government, I wish to Bay to the Am
erican people npon my responsibility
tbe governor-general that Id my
opinion there exist today la the Phil
ippine Islands a stable government;
which I think should answer the re
quirements laid down by President
Grant and McKinley, and lis I under
stand It, also by Mr. Root namely,
government elected by the suffrage of
tbe people, which Is supported by lb
people, which Is capable of maintain
ing order and of fulfilling Its interna
tional obligations. ,
I am very glad to go on record as be
ing entirely In sympathy with the as
pirations of the Filipino nation for In
dependence. I have recommended to Congress
that In granting Independence some
provision be made similar to what I
known as the Piatt amendment In lb
treaty with Cuba, which restricts the
ability of tbe new republic In borrow
ing of foreign governments nnd
permits the United States to Interfc.
wilh the affairs of the new republic In
case conditions of disorder should l
found to prevail.- Such recommenda
tion does not come as an expression of
the views of the Filipinos; It Is my
own view of what would be desirable
to secure a feeling of confidence sn4
satisfaction on the part of all persons
'who have already Invested money la
the Philippines or who contemplate do
ing so in the near future.
But It Is not right that Independence
Itself should longer be delayed.
By temperament, by experience, by"
financial ability. In every way, the
11,000,000 Filipinos are entitled te
lie free from every government except
of their own choice. They are Intelli
gent enough to decide for themselves.
I have found the native Filipino of-
fidal to be honest, efficient and ss ca
pable of administering executive posi
tions as any men I have met anywhere
In the world.
These officials are today governing
1,000 municipalities and forty-tw
provinces, economically, efficiently and
for the good of the entire people. They
have a native congress, Including many
graduates of Stale, Princeton, Harvard
and other American universities. Oth
er members are graduates of Santo To
mas and other Philippine universities,
and In education and ability they com
pare favorably with any I know.
They have leaders like Speaker Os
mena of the House of Representative
and President Quezon of the Senat
w ho would adorn any office.
The Philippines are away ahead of
the United States In successful govern,
ment ownership and operation of pub
The government took hold of th
steam railways and made them pay
profit of 1,000,000 pesos a year mor
than under private ownership.
It took hold of the highways, and
we have 7,000 miles of the best mac
adamized roads in the world. Th
Manila city government Is about to
take over the street railways and th
gas and electric plants, while the ter
ritorial government Is arranging for
ownership and control of the coal sup
ply. The movement for Independence la
a peaceful one. No territory was mor
loyal to Uncle Sam during the war. It
offered an armed and equipped division
to ,our government, gave tt a subma
rine destroyer and oversubscribed Lib
erty loans and Red Cross funds.
Two million natives speak English
fluently, and there are 700.000 English
speaking children In the public schools.
I am more than willing to retire It
the Filipinos can be granted what they
deserve a government Ilk that of th)
London. Bolshevik forces have cap
tured Archangel, on the White sea. ac
