We have frequent occasion to pro
test against the efforts of Japan to
impose her dominion upon unwilling
peoples, yet we have thus far failed
to exemplify the ideals Which we rec
ommend to Japan. If we should with
draw our sovereignty from the Philip
pines, In accordance with our repeated
promises, we could the more consist
ently ask Japan to follow a similar
course toward Shantung, Manchuria
and Siberia. Our plea would have a
great deal more force if we could
make it with clean hands. To say that
he Philippines are net reach for la-
dependence is merely to express an
arbitrary, gratuitous opinion. it is
perfectly easy lo create conditions
in one's own mind that no people
ever could comply with. Our delay
about respecting our own pledge Is a
reflection on our national good faith
and a constant Invitation to interna
tional complications In the far east.
