Through this line of armed men, carrying their rifles at "present arms" most of the time, rolled the magnifi- cent royal and state equipages, up-to- date automobiles, and wonderful pri- vate carriages on the cushions of which reposed in seemingly bored state the gorgeously uniformed poten- tates, princes and private citizens who represent the nations of the world at the investment of England's king.

WASHINGTON, D. C.. June i new and important issue is looming up before issue of Fili- pino independence. The first step in a movement which will bring this is- sue before the people and inject it in- to the congressional session next wint- er, the national political conventions next summer and the presidential campaign next fall was taken when Representative Cyrus Cline of Indi- ana, a member of the committee on foreign affairs, introduced a carefully wrought out joint resolution fixing the month of July, 1920, as the time when the sovereignly of the United States shall be finally withdrawn from the Philippines. This resolution is the one, out of a numerous list of such, resolutions which have keen introduceoVihat will have the backing of potential forces bent on forcing the United States to declare within the next two or three years its purpose to evacuate the Phil- ippines. All "of the elements that want the Philippines set .free are ar- ranging for a grand center rush. So far the movement has been kept pret- ty well under cover but the next six months will bring the Philippine ques- tion conspicuously before congress and.- the people. The plan is to geti all of the forces in shape to do team j work and then storm the fort, so to speak. Seeing this movement on the way, :Mr. Cline has made a specialty of the Philippine situation for months. Several weeks ago he introduced a resolution which was merely declara- tory of the purpose -of Uncle Sam to get out of the Philippines.; This is.to be superseded "by the resolution jnst specific. It is entitled "A join resolu- tion to authorize the president of the United States to take measures for the delivery, of possession, control and government of the Philippine Islands to the Filipino people and to promote their future independence by treaties of neutrality." In the movement to put across Fili- pino independence are such men as W. J.

Representative Sharpe of Elyria made one of the closing speeches on the bill. He expressed doubt as to the wisdom of such a decisive cut in the diiij'' on raw wool, saying" he believed the woolen manufacturers would be benefited and not the consumers. The Underwood bill places a duty of 20 per cent advalorem on raw wool imports as against an average duty of a little more than 44 per cent, ad- valorem under the present law.
