Excerpt from The Philippines Under Spanish and American Rules

For my statements regarding industries, resources, etc., I have depended, in the main, upon the ample sources of information afforded by the U. S. War Department, having been taught by experience to regard them as the most reliable.

I have avoided polemic discussion, because there are others much better qualified than myself to pass opinion on the controversial questions connected with the Philippines; but that the reader, who will natu rally look for some such expressions in a book of this kind, may be satisfied, I have fully remedied the deficiency on my part by inserting a chapter of ex tracts from public addresses delivered by the Honor able William H. Taft, who is recognized as the fore most authority on our insular possessions in the Pacific. These addresses are the most direct, logical, and consistent statements of the conditions and pros peets in the Philippine Islands, as well as the most clear and unequivocal expression of the policy of the American Government towards those islands. I much regret that. The quotations are, necessarily, limited to a few brief extracts and strongly recommend the reading of the addresses in extenso to all who would have a clear idea of our relations to the Philippines and the problems involved in their administration.
