Fully 15, hit persons crowded around the speakers stand and cheered wildly when president Mckinley appeared with major it. Ii. Lien at his Side. President Mckinley s speech was cheered to the Echo. As were also the Short addresses made by the members of the Cabinet. Companies it and iof the first South Dakota volunteers just returned from the Philippines participated in the Parade and were reviewed by the president. In the course of his speech Here the president said a i received the other Day a letter from a most distinguished officer now engaged i ii Active duty in the Philippines. Ii is a letter dated Manila. Aug. 29. 1899, and i want to read one or two extracts from it a a a i Ani confident that if we should withdraw our army now. Aguinaldo could not hold himself in Power without carrying on warfare against other tribes and Fri would cause a constant warfare and turmoil for years. Of course there would let a looting of cities and seizing and destruction of property. And the business people and property holders would apply to some Strong government to restore order. For us to withdraw our army now would be criminal and for such an action we would be arraigned and denounced by the civilized nations of the Earth. A voice a that s right a a a i believe that when ii is fully uti stood that our supremacy is to lie untamed in the islands there will be n Al u x of population from the cd states and other countries Here is no quest Ion As to the Rich Encino never Low Ness of the soil of and the abundance Unerv until he has and Richness of Gold. Copper and Coal enemies who As mines. A dlr is True that heretofore they have not paid but it is because they have not been Roji Erly managed. A a a the receipts from this port from customs it is the port of Manila Are averaging $600000 per month. This Vav internal Revenue. I believe would in Ordinary times pay the entire expenses of the government. A a Ari idea seems to be prevalent in the United states that that is an unhealthy country and that White men cannot live there. This is a great mistake. There is also an impression that to retain these islands would lie a Burden to our country. That these views Are errors should be impressed upon the american people. A you May ask.
