tainly reason to believe that the stui
dents of the University of Michigan
can overlook party lines when it
means that they are to hear discussed
the problem of the retention of thes
Philippiies. Mr. Bryan lectured
upon Imperialism Saturday night in
Uiversity Hall under the auspices
of the Good Government Club, and
thoughi i the large audience there
probably was but a small miority

cratic committee who entertained him
until evening. In the afternoon he
was tendered a rousing reception at
the court house, where about three
thousand people shook his hand.
Before introducing the lecturer,
President Mulholland, of the Good
Government club, read the following
letter addressed to Dr. Angell:
"In order to stimulate study on
subjects it connection with good gov-
ernment I hereby give $250 to the
University on condition that the
money.be invested and the annual
income be given as a prize for the
best essay on good government topics."
The letter was signed W. J. Bryan
and it was received with tumultuous
applause and rousing U. of M. yells.
In his opening remarks Mr Bryan
said it was always a pleasure for hie
to speak to students, as their minds
were not fully made up on political
questions, and they listened to the
opinon of others gladly and readily.
He spoke in part as follows:
The only question to be considered
and decided is whether the perma-
nent retention of the Philippine is-
lands is desirable. And in consider-
ing what is desirable we must consider
what is best for the people of the
United States and what is best for
the Filipinos. Those who oppose
the colonial policy deny that the
adoption of such a policy by this
nation would be beneficial either to
the United States or to the alien race
over which our sovereignty would be

the better. It is putting the cart
before the horse to say that the na-
tion cannot reveal their purpose un-
til theFilipnoslay down their arms. If
the nation would declare its intention
to establish a stable and independent
government in the Philippimes and
then leave that government in the
hands of the people of the islands,
hostilities would be suspended at
once and further bloodshed would be
avoided. What would our colonists
have thought of a demand upon the
part of England that we first lay
down our arms and surrender to the
king, and then trust to the decision
he would make. Now, that the

treaty has been ratified and Spain DECLARED OFF.
