however, modifying It' in the slightest

Important position in American public
life next to the presidency, t'pon occa
sloiw It Is the most important one. The
speakership In a largo degree controls
the house. To be elevated to it Is an
honor and a token of confidence to
which no man In congiess would be in
sensible. We observe the suggestion In a num
ber of newspapers It Is even more than
a suggestion, It x an assumption that
the successor to Colonel Henderson will
be a western man. We are unable to
understand why. If what Colonel Hen
derson says with lefeieuce to western
sentiment be true, the election of a
western man might be interpreted as a
blow at protection. We do not think
that the Republican party Is ready to
abandon or In any way weaken the doc
trine of protection lo American Industry
and labor. If the selection of a western
man for speaker should lay the party
open to any misunderstanding on this
fcore. then emphatically a western man
should not be cho.'en.
Hut regardless of the sectional ques
tion, why should not the next speaker
be chosen because of his Illness for tho
place becai:s. of his long experience,
Ills familiarity with legislative methods
and government needs, his understand
ing of parliamentary piactlce and of the
fin rents and cross-cm rents of public
life? If a staiulaid of this kind were
to govern, then Pennsylvania could
e.isly till tho hill In the peison of Hon.
John Dalzell. Mr. Dalaell is pel haps
the nio.n Industi lot's man In congress.
For yrars he has been lvcognlztd as
one of the foremost leadcis. He has
risen to this rank through no Uctltlous
aids, but solely because of his signal
ability. Industry and reliability. The;!p in his hands would involve
r.u expeilment; the houte and the coun

There Is another member of the Penn
sylvania delegation who would acquit
himself with distinguished credit in
the speaker's chair. We refer to
Hon. Marlln E. Olmsted, who has
upon occasion presided over the
house with exceptional skill. He Is.
It is true, one of the younger members,
but his growth In usefulness and la the
recognition of his colleagues has been
vapid and steady. He would mnke a
line speaker.
Tho talk of selecting the next
speaker with a view to revolution

Is truthful and Instructive, Its prep

Ion, Jesse Overstreet, Its compiler,
Here are some salient points from it!
"Tho doleful prophecies that It would

of years to puclfy the Philippines have,
been proven false by facts. Peace has
beeen restored, civil government has
been established, and tho army hat.
been reduced to about eighteen thou
sand, men, a much smaller number of
soldiers to tho- population than the
United States maintained In the, early
days of the republic,
"Even while the military government
was being organized President McKlli
Icy ana Ills udvlsers were engaged. Ja
preparing a plan of civil government to
replace tho military. I-ess than six
months nfter tho capture of Manila the
first Philippine commission was ap
pointed, and reached Manila on March
4, ISO!), and this original commission
wns superseded a year later by the
Tart commission, a non-partisan body,
carefully selected for their special
tltiatlllctitlonp, and the president's In
structions to this 1'oinmlsslon mnke one
of the few epoch marking state papers
that llguic In tho history nf our conn
"The spoils system was rigidly barred
from the Island. Tho fifth act passed
by the commission provided for a thor
ough and complete civil service In
which proven met It wns the only open
sesame lo position or advancement. As
far as possslblejiadves were employed,
and the Amei leans who secured posi
tions under the Insular government
were given (o understand thnt nn lm
pottnnt part of their duties was lo train
natives to perforin the work at pres
ent In chai'Re ot Americans.
"A careful system of accounting was
established, based upon the experience
gained In handling of public funds In
tho United Htutes, anil the funds have
been carefully safeguarded and ac
counted for from the date of occupa
tion ' Tho harbors of the Philippines are
generally shallow. At Manila till the
freight of seagoing vessels of over six
tern feet has to bo transferred by light
ers between ship and shore for several
miles at great expense and risk. This
has been a heavy burden upon com
merce. For example, the freight rates
between Manila and Hong long, n dis
tance of about seven hundred miles,
are as much and sometimes more than
between Hong Kong and San Fran
cisco, a dlnance nf about eight thou
sand miles.
"The commerce of Manila urgently
demanded the creation of a thoroughly
protected harbor, with a suflkient depth
of water to accommodate the largest
vessels. The Spanish government had
been working at It for twenty years be
fore the cession of the Islands to the
United States, and had finished about
30 per cent, of the work. The commis
sion has-appropiioted $2,000,000 to com
plete the work, and within two years
Manila will have a safe, commodious
harbor, with modern facilities for hand
ling freight, thut will cheapen every
pound of merchandise which enteis or
leaves that poll.
"Nearly every account ot the Philip
pines dwells upon the wretched con
dltlon of the toads, or, rather, internal
LOinmeice, except upon the navigable
livers. The commission appropriated
$2,000,000 (Mexican) to he expended In
the construction of highways and
bridges, and this work, as well as the
harbor improvements, has been placed
under the direction of the United States
corps of engineers, and during the year
1901 they built over eight hundred miles
of roads, and built them so solidly as to
resist the tropical rains of those Isl
ands. More public improvements In the
way ot works of general utility have
been made during the less than four
years of Ameilcan control than Spain
accomplished In all her centuries of
Hut this Is not all the story. "It is
evident that, with their great extent of
fertile land and wide variations of ele
vation, and therefoie ot temperature,
Improvements in the agriculture of the
Philippine Islands could be made lo the
Immense advantage of the people. Their
methods of cultivation were primitive
and Ineffective. The ordinary vege
tables, notwithstanding the fertility of
tho soil, are small and poor, and many
vegetables are Imported from China and
other points. Many grains and vege
tables unknown to the people could un
doubtedly be raised. In view of this
condition, a department of agriculture
was organized, and an expert from the
t'nited States department of agricul
ture was put In charge, experiment sta
tions and farms were established, seeds
and plants weie Introduced, and a
series of agricultural primers Is being
printed and distributed nmong the
people, written In simple language, that
will aid them In Improving their crops
and methods of cultivation. The agri
cultural possibilities of the Philippines
may be Imagined when account Is taken
of the fact that good sugar land in the
Hawaiian Islands Is worth fiom $S00 to
$1,000 an acie, while good sugar land in
the Island of Xegros, In the Philippines,
can be bought for from $30 to $00 an
acre. Under Intelligent cultivation, with
good seed and Improved machinery, the
Philippines can and will become the
agricultural Monte Crlsto or the world,
able to vie with Java, that has been
such a mine of wealth to the govern
ment of Holland."
Moreover, In the way of education,
American control hns done wonders.
No less than one hundred and fifty
thousand pupils are now enrolled. Over
ten thousand adult natives are study
ing English In schools under American
teachers, and more are applying than
can becared for at present. There ate
more people anxious for education than
theie are teachers to furnish it, and
there are more teachers than there are
schoolrooms to teach in. Every dollar
that can be put Into extending the
school system and in supplying the
needs of additional natives Is promptly
Another great reform has been
wrought, in sanitation. Conditions In
the Philippines were, when the Ameri
cans went there, as they were In Cuba
dirt and neglect everywhere. Vac
cination was made compulsory; drain
age was Insisted upon; garbage, lefuse
and night soil were disposed of. House
to house visitations were mode by the
sanitary olllcers and every possible ef
fort Iiob been made to Improve the sur
roundings of the people. This has b?en
no grateful task, but the authorities
have not wavered In the discharge of
their duties. It Is this condition which
has made the battle against the cholera
so dlfllcult. The natives would not re
port cases which came to their knowl
edge; they would not observe the In
structlonb as to eating, cooking and
drinking which were distributed, and
the Inspectors have been obliged to
light, not only the cholera, but the
people as well. Nevertheless, great pro
gress lias been made, and tho time Is
not far distant when Manila will be
come one of the most healthy cities In
the tropics.
If this be Imperialism, make the most
of It.
Common Sense on
Tariff Revision
From n Iteeent Speech by Secretary
IlIAVt: HKI1N mioled ns opposed to
revision of the tot Iff. I hayo never
opposed readjustment of the tariff.
Whenever congress reaches the con
clusion that the friends of protection are
strong enough lo conservatively modify
certain schedules, so ns to meet chnnged
conditions and nt the same time success
fully resist the efforts of the oppsltlon
to revise the entire tariff law, thus para
lyzing business for n setton, I nm In
favor of It. I have expressed some doubt,
however, about tho wisdom nf Instruct
ing by resolutions, or exacting pledges
from candidates for congress, when tho
effect Is liable to preclpltnte a protracted
debate, with very uncertain results. There
ought to be some more tangible reason
for such n dangerous expedient than the
etlstence of a sentiment In certain locali
ties, now as always, that demands n re
duction of the tariff on articles there
consumed nnd not produced, while It
stnnds ready lo tight to u finish any re
duction on the things It produces
I have never seen the time slneo I lmve
given public niiPtlons consideration that
T would not reduce the rate on nulto a
large number of Items, nor when I would
not Increase tho rate on other Items. It
Is not likely that any member of either
house nf congress ever voted for a tariff
hill entirely to his liking, nor Is It prob
able thnt any president ever signed n
bill that ho would not have changed In
some particular had It been In his power.
I nm willing lo concede that conditions
cbnnge, nnd that the old Morrill bill of
the sixties, for instance, when tho coun
try was Involved In war, would not 1
appropriate for us now; but I will not
admit thnt the tariff Is the mother of
trusts, nor will I concede that any trust
owes Its pxlstence to the protective prin
ciple. Neither will t concede that n tariff
for revenue only will destroy trusts on
any other theory than that a fire In a
wheat Held will destroy Canada thistles.
Business depression dissipates both or
ganized and unorganized capital. En
forced Idleness means financial ruin to
Individuals, to business firms and to cor
porations, both great and small. On the
contrary, business prosperity Inspires
hopefulness. It encourages tho Individ
ual to reach out, to expand, to buy more
land, more houses, more cattle, to erect
more stores, build more shops nnd to
embark In now enterprises. It leads to
the organization of corporations. It leads
to the combination of capital and the or
ganization of labor. Organized capital
dissipates nnd lobor unions perish with
the approach of hard times, whatever
the eause. Does nny one suppose that
the anthracite coal miners could be kept
together if therp were n million men out
of employment nnd thPlr families begged
bread? "Will any one contend thnt they
could be sustained were It not for a
great army of bituminous coal miners
who are receiving such compensation ns
enables them to contribute n dollnr per
week for the maintenance of tlielr breth
ren? The protective tariff Is not the
mother of trusts, though It Is the parent
of conditions that make It profitable for
capital to combine and congenial for
labor to organize.
The Republican parly In my state re
cently reaffirmed the tariff platform of
1901. This has caused considerable com
ment. It hns been misrepresented, not
quite as persistently, but In tbp same
way that the memorable speech of Presi
dent McKlnlcy at Buffalo hns been mls
rpprpsented, misquoted, misconstrued nnd
misapplied. This platform was unani
mously ndoptod both years. Its state
ments nro academically correct. Every
man In the United States, Republican and
Democrat, believes In the truth of Its ut
terances. It declares "In favor of such
changes In the tariff from time to time
as become advisable through thp pro
grpss of our Industries and their chnng
Ing relations to the commerce of the
world." Is there any one who Is not "In
favor of such changes In the tariff from
time to tlmp as are advisable?" I am
willing the jury shall be polled nn thnt
proposition. So say we all. It also de
clares "in favor of nny modification of
tariff schedules that may he required to
prevent their affording shelter to monop
oly." And, again, we all f-ay, "Aye, sir."
to the proposition. There may be quite
a radical difference of opinion as to tho
truth of the Implied admission that the
protective tariff does afford shelter to
monopoly, but there would be no dif
ference nf opinion about removing it If It
did afford such shelter.
A few days ago, the butchers in con
vention assembled, declared In favor of
abolishing the tariff on cattle nnd meat,
to the pud that this supposed shelter for
the alleged meat trust might be removed;
but I am ill-posed to think the good far
mers of my state would vote quite unani
mously against such an experiment. Ry
the trend of the speeches made nt the
hutehei.s' convention. I dlscovored a sen
timent well-nigh universally expressed
there that meat Is being monopolized by
thn gieat packers. Hut I happen to have
a tenant nut in Iowa who has a flue
bunch or fat cattle, on which no packer
holds a lien of any kind, and he writes
lire that ho Is willing to sell them to the
butchers If they will pay ns much ns the
packers offer. I am qtille sure tho peo
ple would as soon buy this meat of the
butchers as of the packers. Thus there
Is afforded a splendid opportunity for nny
one to make all kinds of money If he
will but give the farmer as much money
for his beeves and give the people as
much beef for their money.
Rut suppose we tnke the tat Iff off beef
and then suppose tho herds of cattle
from Mexico and South America are
brought In by the hundred thousand.
They will find their way to the stock
yards and the butchers will be compelled
to bid against tho packers then as now.
No, The removal' of the tariff on live
stock and meat would not restore tho
butchers to business It might ruin tho
farmers, but the packers could stand It;
for nothing less than organized capital
could enter the Import meat business
with packing houses In foreign countries,
refrigerating ships and other expensive
equipment, I happen to know that fit
ieast one. and I understand two, of tho
big Hacking houses have had men looking
Into the South American Meld for more
than two years. Tho farmer, as It Is,
has ample reason to bo apprehensive,
I huvo taken occasion to look this mat
ter up since rending of theso resolutions,
nnd I think I can find reasons for the
present pilco of meat other than thn pro
tective tariff. I find that there were re
ceived at the stock yauls in Chicago. In
tho one month of July, 1902. 65,000 fewer
beeves and 170.000 fewer hogs than In
tho nuuo month one year ago. That
means 7,000 fewer anlmnls per day. Thn
Q, road alone, during tho entire mouth,
brought from tho Southwest, where the
corn crop was a failure Inst year, 1,000
fewer fat Hteers per day this year than
Let no one understand this to ho n de
fence of tho packers or an extenuatlun of
their offences, A suit Is new pending
against them, nnd If the allegations of
the petition me sustained (and that teems
probable), they are going to have trouble,
and It will lake a very much more acute
form than It would to say to the farmers
of the United Htates that their Industry
shall be opened lo competition from the
unlimited ranges of South Ameilca,
Tho senior Phil Armour told me that
he got rich, while a young man, by
watching the Iron and coal mlneis. He
said; "Whenever these men were at
work I used to pack every ham I could
get my hands on, and my old partner
would say, 'Phil, you will bieak us up.'
I would answer, 'No, these fellows are
working.' Hut when tho coal and Iron
worker were Idle, I used to sell every
thing I could dispose of." The secret of
Ameilcan prosperity, gentlemen, can be
couched In four words, "They aro work
ing now," And "they" means everybody
farmer tiud artisan, mechanic, and mer
chant, tho muu at the forge and the
man la tho field and they are all Inter
dependent. Away back In 1816, Daniel
