people In all the days sine tin curtain
rose on the diiwn of civilisation. If
we do not spoil it. It la a record that
we can be proud of.
llut It really Isn't so strange that
tb Filipino should tor as mors for
our promise to gle them sovereignty
over tlmiiiKelren man for our other
good works, for which, afte all, out
side of army and uavy expenditures,
lb Filipinos have been taxed, and
properly so, for vry cent of lh cost.
If w but rTers th situation, and
place ourselves In th shoes f the
Filipinos, which cannot b said t be
u unfair way of getting at th other
fellow viewpoint, w shall e that
It I not Strang.
Suppose that Great Britain or any
other power that yuu can think of by re
ferring to your geography 'or history.
should Impose Its sovereignly opon a
malum our will and then gtv u an
Infinitely belter government than w
now enjojr Could any such foreign
power ever succeed in convincing as
that It had onr welfare mora at heart
than we bavt ourselves.
But to return to my story, th Fill-
plnos heartily thanked as for tb
Jones law, considering It sort of a
covenant between th Filipino ana
American peoples, and Immediately
applied themselves to th task f set
ting up th prescribed stabl govern
ment. And they set It op. It I ta
tb Philippine now. America s own
representative In th Islands, tb gov
ernor general, omciatiy reports it i
there, and recommends that sine tb
Filipinos have earnestly fulfilled their
part of the agreement, America should
be as prompt In carrying out Its psrt
of the contract.
So that. In a fen words, It la not
the Philippines that now sr on trial,
but tb United States.
There Is but on answer. America
will carry out Its agreement. And
since we are going ts do It, we cannot
afford to quibble and split balrs and
hesitut nntll oar tardloess robs ns
of half the glory of our achievement.
I,et us act with a promptness atid will
ingness really worthy of America.
And when the people of th United
States set up tha Philippine Republic
as the nrst cnristian Democracy ot
the Far twist, they will be building
monument to themselves that wilt
stand throughout eternity. On that
day the beacon light of hope, humanity
and Justice will fisah around th world.
Such an example by America will ac
complish mor for tha wesk and strug
gling peoples of tb earth than the
four year world war, with all Its cost

The attitude of th American gov
ernment, and th great mass of the
people of the United States, Is to eon
stder th Philippine question from th
unselfish viewpoint of whst Is best
for the Filipino people Nlnety-tlv
per cent ot the opposition to Inde
pendence emanates from American In
vestors In the Islands who are quit
naturally more Interested In the size
of their dividends than tb freedom ot
an alien people.
Th unfortunate feature of th sit
uation Is that th opponents of Inde
pendence, In order to convince th peo
ple ot th United Ststes tbat the Kll'
plno should not be granted tbetr in
dependence, find It necessary to tlael
an entire race. To tell a sensitise
Christian people that they shall not
have their promised Indeiwndenc be
cause they sr not nt for It will In
the end Drove a mistaken policy. It
.will only make their demand for In
dependence the stronger.
At the present time, however, th
masse of tb Filipino people still
. have absolute confidence In the good
fsltb ot America. Their loyalty and
gratitude to Unci Sam has not as
yet been Impaired by the misrepre
sentations ot th retentlonlsts. Their
leaders are Intelligent enough to dis
tinguish between those American
who oppose their aspirations to In
dependence for purely selQsh reasons,
and th great mass of the American
people whom they know desire this
government to do by th Filipinos

la this connection, It Is Interesting
to review the development of the pres
ent friendly relationship between th
Filipino snd American peoples.
Previous to 1910 the Philippine
American relationship Is declared to
hare been not of the beat. But with
the passage In that year of the Jones
law by practically both the Republican
and Democratic memberships of Con
gress, a better feeling developed. This
"better feeling" has now grown Into
a very strorg bend of sympathy and
The liappy altitude of th Filipino
people toward America Is due not prin
cipally to the fact that Americans
have shown the Filipinos how to make
tlielr country a better place to live In ;
not principally to the fact w have
superintended the Implanting In th
Philippines of on of the finest edu
cational systems In the world; nor to
