appealed to the martial spirit and ended with
credit to our arms. In each of these struggles
some of our people did not share in the hopes
and aspirations of the nation or support those
who were charged with the mandates of the
people. But after the years have passed and
the smoke of conflict has cleared away, these
great events appear as epochs in the progress
of the nation. We declared war against Spain
something more than a year ago ostensibly and
partly in the defense of national honor, and to
avenge the shocking destruction of our battle
ship and its sailors in Havana harbor, but the
real cause is seen to have been the irrepressible
conflict between the free institutions of Ameri­
ca and the oppression ot the Spaniard. We have
promised to give to Cuba her independence
when and as soon as her people have, in the
judgment of freemen, demonstrated their ca­
pacity for self government, and by the time this
period shall have arrived, the same capacity
for and love of liberty that we possess and enjoy-

gent Cubans, that magnificent island to our

Rico and its inhabitants, and we have begun to

possessions Hawaii and given to its people a ter­
ritorial form of government. In the destruc­

are attempting to .found a republican form of
government and to take to the rebellious tribes
tribes of these islands of the far western seas
the same form of government, the same insti­
tutions and civilization which we ourselves en­
joy. At this point in our national struggle
there may be room for difference of opinion as
to the ultimate disposition of these islands, but
it is mainly because of the effect of their dispo­
sition npon us as a people and a nation whether
for good or evil and not because our mission
there will not bring untold blessings to
their people. We have not violated the declar­
ation of independence nor trampled upon the
fundamental principles of free government in
our temporary or permanent acquisition of this
territory. The principles of civil liberty will
flourish in our hands in the tropics as they
have grown in this hemisphere. Before an>
question is made as to whether it Is our
duty to remain there and by force of arms, if
we must, establish our authority, ¡t might be
well to ask whether our withdrawal would not

one created by his own hand, who prates of the
struggles of the American patriots at Valley

sin’s hand to strike down his greatest general,

long range, and through Hong Kong juntas, and
who indiscriminately puts to the sword, with­

cannot receive from the United States any other
treatment than that properly accorded to ty­
rants. It would be an offense against the age,
against free institutions, against every consider
ation of humanity, to w ithdraw our forces and
abanden these islands. We shall not do so
The question docs not admit of any debate on
party lines. It should not now become a politi­
cal issue. It has become one of national ihteg-
rity. It is in no spirit of fault finding that
we must take up this great question. The time
may come after order has been restored, when
the military shall have given place to the
civil authority, when courts of justice shall
have been established, when just
equal laws have been enacted and entered,
when our institutions have had their full sway
in these islands, when it may be just and
worthy of is to yield up our possession and con­
trol. That time, if it shall ever come, is far in
the future.
Meantime, we shall have many
problems there and here to perplex us. We have
as a nation entered upon a larger career, and we
shall never return to the provincial life which
has hitherto surrounded us. Theorists may de­
bate, partisans may criticize and statesmen
may condemn, but if there is one act that has
become irrevocable, it is that by which the ar­
bitrament ot the sword gave to us control of the
islands formerly owned by Spain. They are
ours, and we must take care of them and their
people. Nor is this result illogical or unexpected
The people’s pulse beats steadilyin this direction
There will be criticism and debate, there have
been mistakes In detail and in plan, but over all
and above all is the controlling and overw helm­

game was ready. Thia was the game of
the season, and among the best ever
played here. The McMinnville boys
stood one score ahead when they played
their last inning, but were unable to hold
the vantage, and the Torpedoes reversed
the honors, leaving the field with 8
scores to the home team’s 7. This prac­
tically ended the attractions of the day,
and everybody went home pleased.
