MONDAY EVEM.TSer. OAKLAND TRIBUNE. FEBRTJABY 17, 1902 OAKLAND Tribune Publishing Company THE CASE OF DANIELS. '-.The people outside of the Territory oppear to he making 11 the fuss about the appointment of Bn Daniels to be United States Mfi-Shal oL Arizona. The people of Arizona pcem Very well satisfied with the appointment. - but this Is ntvt tak?n into account by the people iwho are striking: at the President over Daniels' shoulders. Daniels Is accused or having- served a term la prism, of having killed a man, and of having run a faro Ibank In Colorado. He admits the? two latter charges, but denies the irst. On the other hand "he terved with gallantry in the Spanish War, and '-his .bravery fell under the personal observation of the President. Mr. . Roosevelt took his measure and upom. that gave . him the office. Killing cf a man 1 a Wad thing, but killing a man Oaes not always prove the slayer to be fi, had man, especially in the "Western mining carrrv? as they existed a few years ago. .However reprehensible gambling may !be from a. jjtuJral point of view, ffiro dealing lvs not prove a man to be dishonest or roaliy bad, as conditions have-existed. Thirty' years ago in Nevada some of the men who Rteod highest in the State for personal integrity were professional faro dealers. "While the social conditions which produced such anomalies are passing away, they have existed practically up to the present day In the mining camps of Colorado I and Montana, lb those communities a man Who ha.s killed another or conducted a gambling game is not necessarily held to be dishonrable or unfit for public 'honors. It is not necessary to dispute about the wholesomeress'of such a (public sentiment, .but the fact that it exists and has existed ever Fince th? discovery of goldin California cannot be gainsaid. The bold, flashing gambler of the West, scrupulous of his word, ti ae as steel to his friends an 1 chivalrie as a paladin, to good women, has ever been a favorlt character with romance 'writers. lie is the most strenuous and interesting type to 'be found in , Bret Hartc's works, and the hero of John F- Swift's novel "Robert Greathouse" was a gambler by profession who regarded killing men in single combat aJ one of thr necessary concomitants of a strenuous life.- Tet us admit that .lack Hamlin and Robert Oreathouse are exaggerated characters, -'but granting that, the average person would be apt to consider them perfectly trustworthy In a .public position much more o. than many whose tiabits of life wen? m.ire respectable and whose frank misdeeds were not offset by certain robust virtues and manly traits that make men respectable In sptite of their calling. THE PHILIPPINE SITUATION. Governor TV.fts testimony ft'-fore the 'Senate Committee has been the .most illuminating of anything that has yet been given to the public in regard to the Philippine situation. It has been frank and explicit, and if it has ehown our position in the islands to be one full of perplexities and difficulties, it has shown us exactly the problems that confront us arid the conditions we must meet. 100 pie may differ with his conclusions, but they must concede them to be based upon imperative elementary considerations which can neither be Ignored nor dismissed, by argument. Governor Taft said tfiat to turn the government of the Archipelago over to the Filipinos as was proposed in the Democrat substitute would Iti his opinion result; in anarchy and in the disturbance of vested rights to puch aiv extent as to render lit neees-fairy for the 1'nited States to resume its control, rwith all the work to do ov?r again that had ben done in the lat two years. He tiad no doubt, however, that the ' Filipinnw- could form a gw-crnmcnt. as thy hnd done under Agui-raldo. Governor Taft advocated the establishment of a stabh government for the present, with the ' understanding that some time in the future the Americans and the Filipinos could rpach an agreement -as to what should be done In the way of government or in maintaining relations; "but," he said, ' "whether a isltnds shoufd nave their independence, whether they should Ihi given a quasi indeiendence. or wheth-r they should be made a State of the Union is so far in the future that I have reached n -onciusion." The Governor said the Filipinos were unfit to govern themselves. They had never been taught to do so, and centuries cf corrupt m'srule had utterly incapacitated them for self government. The universal corruption of the Ppanisii system including the courts, had corrupted the ideas (of the people. Governor Taft frankly stated that the first courts established by General OtU were as corrupt as their i Spanish predecessors. This of course gave American adminlstratiorN-abad start in the Islands. The work of building : up responsible' citizenship is a long and (arduous task, but until . hat is nlone, it is Idle to talk about . giving the Filipinos independence or self government under our constitu- tlonal forms. 1 . We start with the essential f&ct that ... Tve are in possession of the Philippine ; Islands, 'and are bound, by our treaty obligations, to protect certain property TRIBUNE William E. Dargie, Presiden rigtits of the Catholic Church, and of citizens of other nations. If we turn the islarnd3 over to the Filipinos, anarchy follows, and our treaty obligations are violated. The position of the Filipinos Is made worse Instead of better, and it is a moral certainty that in a short time, they would fail under the dominion of .some strong Kuropean power- We could not undertake a protectorate over th-i islands without maintaining an established form of government within them, just as we are doing today. It is cleoir. that the only thing to be done at present with the Philippine situation is to provide a liberal government for the islands, adapted to the wants, conditions, easterns 'and racial environment of the people. Beyond that, all 13 mere speculation, for abstractions must in any event, give way to the force of concrete conditions. It is easy to detect the underlying note of defiance in the Russian utterances with respect to the new Anglo-Japanese treaty. The Russians know that the treaty is aimed at them, and they politely let it be understood that they do not care a button. j The advantage of the Russian position is easily perceived. While the i recent treaties guarantee the inde-I pendence of Korea, and the integrity of Chinese Empire, they are no obstacles to Russian designs. The Russians are simply operating through Korean and Chinese agents. The King of Korea and the Emperor of China i apparently do certain things, but those things are exactly what Russia wants donp, and exactly what England and Japan do not want done. In other words, England and Japan are being frustrated in Korea and China by the very governments which they have bound themselves to protect. Under the circumstaniv.? it is not s-insular that the Russians .should regard the new alliance with fellings akin to contempt. Richard Cvoker is going to turn his estate in England into a dairy ranch. His success in milking the city of New York through the agency of Tammany Hall has probably imbued him with the idea that any sort of a milking is a paying business. It is safe to say, however, that he will not trust his diry business to Tammny workers. RHYMES OF THE DAY.

RABBI FRIEDLANDER DELIVERS ORATION The Thirty-ninth session of the B'nai B'rith was held in San Francisco yesterday. Rabbi M. Friedlander of Oakland, grand orator of the district, delivered the annual oration during the evening session. When he concluded he was rewarded with enthusiastic applause, and the Grand .Lodge ordered the lecture printed and distributed among the membership. In part the orator spoke as follows: ' 5 "The genius of the Jew lies in his capacity to adapt himself to all conditions and environments. Through all the centuries of his wanderings and vicissitudes he was at home everywhere, equal to every situation, and alive to very move of progress. The philosophy of the Jews history is a recognition of the existence of a perpetual flexibility in the wants, interests and purposes of humanity. Whenever Israel showed disrespect for this law and stubbornly rejected the demand for a modification of attitude and a revision of the governing formula is suffered serious consequences. W'hile this order originally came into existence as a means for improving the condition of the destitute and ignorant immigrant, the change of things is forcing it to widen its scope. The order must be made an important factor in fashioning .and directing the future destiny of tiie Jew and American Judaism.

FUNERAL OF L GHIRARDELLI The funeral of Louis Ghirardelli, who died after an illness of only two days, was held yesterday from his late residence, 1147 Poplar streeet. The services, which w;ere private, were conducted by the Rev. B. Fay Mills .of the First Unitarian Church. Only. the immediate relatives and friends of the family and a few employes of the Ghirardelli Company of which the deceased was vice-president were pre-ent at the service at the family residence. Many beautiful floral emblems were sent by the factory employes and friends of the family. The honorary pall-bearers were: Richard Martin, John Martin, John Grindley, James Harrold, W. Williamson and Charles Mau. About forty of the employes of the spice factory gathered to pay their last respects to their h1 friend, and escorted the cortege to Mountain View Cemetery, where the remains were placed in the family vault. Despite the fact that the funeral was private, the many social and business friends of the deceased attended the funeral, making it one of the largest held in this -city for some time. BUILDING NEW HOMES. A reliable indication of Oakland's, rapid growth in the past year is forcibly evidenced in the reports of building operations from all jover the coast which have just been filed for the year 1901. For the largest number of new residences our city heads the list and still it is impossible to rent a dwelling unless secured weeks in advance. The Belden Building and Investment Company, one of the largest of the local building corporations, report an exceedingly busy year and a steady inquiry for new homes. The company have just completed homes for J, R. Floud in San Francisco and A. J. Brothers on Ashby avenue,, Berkeley, and will shortly start on their thirty-fourth contract in East Oakland. Plans for two others are now in the hands of their architect. Their new "combination loan" plan makes it as easy to buy a new home as to rent one and. many are taking advantage of it.
