IWik. iI'.'BByitm Alsiut four columns
ofsaaMt typv. The St. Ixjuis Globe-KeniiN-rat
has published an editorial
analysis lhat summari.esj all the
IMiinta. This is given heiewith:
Tie reKirt of the Philippine com
mission mates the country's rala-
liotia to the relttllion so plain that
nobody hereafter will have any e
cuse for making any mistake on thia
subject. In t be first place the point
is brought out clearly that Adaetral
lewey made no promises of recogti
.ion to Aguinaldo. "No alliance Of
any kind, saya the commission,
"was entered into with 'Aguinaldo,
nut wtta any proiriafculiujapenilenc-e
made to tiitn thefi or at ary time."
This was Ihe situatlou Just after the
destruction of the Spanlsll fleei by
Dewey fu Manila Bay, at the time
of Aguinaldo' first appearance on
theirane. There waa no rebellion
in the Island at the me the war
between Spain and the Unite?! State
begig). A .rising occurred A short
time before, b3t It had been put
down by Spain. AgulnahaXWai.oot
in the island at the time, but was
in India. He did not arrive In
Luzon until after Dewey' fleet sub
verted Spanish authorjty In the
neighborhood of Manlls, and virtu
ally effaced Ifcall otf? the Islands.
This is a f.icl ot thcT-ive inip.r
tanee in cotiii tn a w ith the i. ls-lli.ui
which Agiuiajdo rsise.1 aflerwurd
against the' Americans The coin-
mUsion point out that Aguinaldo
forc.ll war upon the 1'nitYd Statett
instead of the 1'nii.sl States upon
Aguinald.1. It shows that at no mo !
meni aiu-riiMi ueMruciion in uie
Spanish Meet wns it MMsiblo for tlie
I'nited States to withdraw its (ore,-
with honor to the country or v illi
safety to the islander, Only six
provinces of l,u.on are in rels'llion,
tiio rest of that island and all the
other islands being favorable to Am
erican authority. Tho8only thing
which save the islands from Hiiarchy
is the presence of the American for
lis. ( )n two o' her points of prune
iinsirtance the commission is eiiial
ly clear and empiiatic. Tlie l iiip
inos are not capable of self govern
ment, lie knows they are not rt 1 1 1
for it, and he would not give it to
Iheiu if they were, his desire being
to maintain his own despotic (aiwer.
Of cum ibe iii:nttv vil! accept
the judgment ol the coiiiiuisniou w ith
the most implicit faith. Its accep
tance will be all the more prompt
and emphatic on account of the fact
thst it is in entire agreement with
the judgment and the testimony of
every body Oewey, Merritt, Greene,
and all the others who have had an
acquaintance with the Filipinos on
(heir own ground who has said Hny
thing tin the sul jcet. 'I'll ere was no
rebellion in the Philippines at the
time that the war between the Unit
ed Stales and Spain began, that in
which Afeuinaliio figured having
la-en suppressed long ts-fure the de
struction of Ihe Maine, and Aguinal
do Was nut of the islands. Nolssly
in authority on the American side
neither iJewey, Merritt nor anybody
elat ever made any promise lo
Aguinaldo lhat Ihe independence of
the islands or of any one of them
A'ould be granted if Aguinaldo
shoald take up arms against tin
Spaniards. The Spaniards would
have been beaten in Ihe islands if
Ajtuinaldo had remained in India.
These are facts of the highest coiise-
ouence. 1 licre was no breacli ol
faith on the part of Ihe United State
in ils treatment of Aguinaldo, but
there was flagrant treachery on his
srt in rising in rebellion against the
United States. The report of tfie
Philippine commission will deal a
staggering blow to the "anti-imperialists."
