Mr. Derby has the great civil war, the recent Mpanish-Amori- worked too bard recently, for the good of pan war, and we are now seeking to restore or der. establish civil and religious liberty and our his health. civilization in the Philippines. These contests 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- will annex by the voluntary suffrages of intelli gent Cubans, that magnificent island to our country. We took as the trophy of war Porto Rico and its inhabitants, and we have begun to plant American institutions in that garden of the Altantic We have added to our Pacific possessions Hawaii and given to its people a ter ritorial form of government. In the destruc tion of Spanish power in the Philippines we 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 be the establishment of a tyrant upon the ruins of Spanish power? A military leader who holds no commission from any government excepting one created by his own hand, who prates of the struggles of the American patriots at Valley Forge and in the same moment nervesan assas sin’s hand to strike down his greatest general, a despot who talks of freedom for his people at long range, and through Hong Kong juntas, and who indiscriminately puts to the sword, with out so much as a military trial, peaceful natives of his own race,who have been non-combatants* 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 and 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 ing thought, that this country has just begun its great career of usfthilness, and that its institu tionR, its learning, its trade, its prowess, and its people, shall rightfully enter upon these oppor tunities. In the afternoon there was a pony and foot race, and after assembling on tbe ball grounds, the contest for thegoora at the top of the greased pole was won by Gay Ferguson. Then followed the war dance by the Grand Ronde Indians, which served to kill time till the ball 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. NOTICE. R.
