THE SCRAOTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY, MAY 31', 1902.
(Concludcil Irom rc 1.1
Tho victories of tlic American army uno
been tho really oltcctlvo mentis of pulling
h atop to cruelty In tho Philippines.
Vhcrevcr these vIcIoiIcb IiuVo been com
tiletc iintl such Is now the cnoo tlirouB";
out the greater part of the Islands-nil
cruolllcB, huvo ceased, nml tho native Is
secure In his life, Ills liberty, ami hlH lir
suit or hnppltu'!). Whore tho Insurrection
Htlll smolders, there Is always a cluinco for
cruelty to show Itpelf. .....
Our soldiers coiiduur; nnd what Is tho
object for which they conquer? To estab
lish a military Kovoinment? No. Tho
laws wc arc now cnileavorlnjr to enact for
tho Government of tho Philippines are to
Increase tho power nnd domain of tho
civil lit the expense of tho military au
thorities, nnd lo render oven more dlf-
,..i, ,l1nn In ,1, i.tiof tlit, ntitmpn nt nn-
presslon. Tho military power Is used to
sccuro peace, In older that It may Itself
bo supplanted by tho civil government.
The progress of tho American arms
means tho abolition of cruelty, tho bring
ing of ponce, and tho rulo of law and or
der under the civil government. Other
nations have conquered to create Irro-
sponsible military rule. Wo conquer to
mine Just nnd responsible civil govern
ment to tho conquered.
Armies Bring Freedom.
But our armies do inoro than lirlnR
peace, do more than bring order. They
bring freedom. Remember always that
tho Independence of n tribe or a commu
nity mny, nnd nfteu iloos, huvu nothing
whatever to do with tho freedom of tlio
Individual In that tribe of community.
Thero are now In AMa nnd Africa scores
of despotic mount chles, each of which is
Independent, and In no one of which Is
there tho slightest vestige of freedom for
tho Individual man. Scant indeed Is tho
gain to mankind from tho "Independence"
of a blood-stained tyrant who rules ovor
abject and brutalized slaves. But grcRt
Is tho gain to humanity which follows tho
steady though slow Introduction of tho
orderly liberty, tho law-abiding freedom
of tho Individual, -which is tho only sure
foundation upon which national independ
ence can be built. Wherever In tho Phil
ippines tho Insurrection has been definite
ly and finally put down, there tho Indi
vidual Filipino already enjoys such free
dom, such personal liberty, under our
rule, as he could never even dream of
under tho rule of an "Independent"
Tho slowly-lcained and difficult art of
self-government, an art which our pcoplo
linvo taught themselves by the labor nf a
thousand years, can not bo grasped In a
lay by a people only Just emerging from
conditions of life which our ancestors left
behind them In tho dim years before his
tory dawned. Wo believe that wc van
rapidly teach tho people of the Phlllpp:m
islands not only how to enjay nut how to
malto good use of their freedom; and with
their growing knowledge their growth In
clf-govcrnmcnt shall keep steady pace.
When they have thus shown their capac
ity for real freedom by their power of
self-government, then, and not till then,
will it bo possible to decide whether they
are to exist independently of us or be
knit to us by ties of common friendship
and Interest. When that day will come It
is not in human wisdom now to foretell.
All that we can say with certainty is that
it would bo put back an Immeasurable
distance if we should yield to tho coun
sels of unmanly weakness and turn loose
.the islands, to seo our victorious foes
butcher with revolting cruelty our be
trayed friends, nnd shed tho blood of tho
moht humane, the most enlightened, the
most peaceful, the wisest nnd the best of
their own niimber for these are the
lassos who havo already learned to wel
come our rule.
Duty to Our Country.
Nor, while fully acknowledging our du
ties, need we forget our duty to our own
country. The Pacific seaboard is as much
to us as the Atlantic; as wo grow in pow
er and prosperity so our Interests will
grow in that farthest west which Is tho
immemorial east. Tho shadow of our des
tiny has already reached the shores of
Asia. Tho might of our people already
looms largo against tho world-horizon;
and it will loom ever larger as the years
go by. No statesman has a right to neg
lect the interests of our people in the Pa
cific; interests which are important to all
our people, but which are of most impor
tance to those of our pcoplo who havo
mini populous ana tnnving states on the
western slope of our continent.
This should no more bo a party ques
tion than the war for tho Union should
have been a party question. At this mo
ment tho man In highest office in tho
Philippine Islands Is tho vice governor,
General Iuko Wright, of Tennessee, who
gallantly woro tho gray In the Civil war
nnd who Is now working hand in hand
( with the head of our army in tho Philip
pines, Adna ChntTee. who In tho Civil war
gallantly woro tho blue. Those two, and
tho men under them, from tho north and
from tho south. In civil life and In mili
tary life, ns teachers, as administrators,
as soldiers, are laboring mightily for us
whojlvo at home. Hero and thero black
sheep nro to bo found among them; nut
taken as a whole they represent ns high a
standard of public servlco as this country
has ever seen. They aro doing a great
work for civilization, a great work for the
honor nnd the Interest of this nation, and
above all for tho welfare of tho inhabit
ants of the Philippine islands. AH honor
to them; nnd shame, thrice shame, to us
If we fall to uphold their hands!
The applause accorded the president
as ho concluded was long and continu
ous, and as he took his seut someone
in the crowd cried out;
"Three cheers for our brave presi
dent," whereupon a mighty shout went
up from the throats of the thousands
who had crowded Into every available
space to hear hint.
General Ell Torrance, commander-in-chief
of the Grand Army of the Repub
lic, followed the. president with a few
remarks, nnd then thf on.-,.i-n ...
brought to a close with the playing of
"Amorlca" by the band, the choir und
assembly Jolnlnff, and benediction by
Henry S. Stevens, department chuplaln.
The master horseshoers of Luzerne
nnd Lackawanna counties met In the
board of trade assembly room yesterday
morning and afternoon and discussed
. at length many matters of Interest to
Natlonul President L. J, Fagan, of
Diooklyn, N, Y was In attendance and

Necessity of Extending the Organiza

CONNOLLY & WALLACE
SCRANTON'S SHOPPING CENTER.
A White Sale of Our Kind Begins on Monday Horning
It will be the commencement of our' Annual June Sale and will fully illustrate the progress and triumph of useful
Great Scope of Our Sale of White
Besides Women's Underclothes, it includes:
White Goods, Corsets
Sheets and Pillow Cases
Hen's Shirts and Collars.
Underclothes for women form the largest part. There are more of these, and better,than we have had in previous
sales. The prices are less than the usual cost to us. The variety is greater and there are more sorts of soft cottons
and linons used in the underclothes. The characteristic this year is plainness, simplicity, daintiness.
In Washington there was a man named Smith, who was thought to look like Daniel Webster. His friends
were constantly telling him how much he looked like Webster, and he was flattered, of course, and helped on the like
ness. One day one of his friends said to Webster: "Do you know, it's wonderful how much Smith looks like you.
People are constantly mistaking him for you." "Why, that's strange," saidWebster, "nobody ever takes me for Smith'
People never tell us we "look like Smith."
Lawn, Nainsook and Fine Long Cloths are used largely in the garments on sale this year. We've beaten the
Board of Health in our efforts to oust the sweat shop work. We won't have it. Some of the makers have even yielded
to the wishes of women, organised to suppress sweat shops, and are using the Consumers' Ceague label. Even women
who have been forced to make their own underclothes for economy's sake, can't compete. There are underclothes for
less than the cost of the materials in them the maker buys wholesale, women have to buy retail.
