AMERICA'S MISSION Ut Speech Delivered by Mr. Bryaa At the Washington Day Banquet Given by tha Virginia Democratic Association, Washington, 1899. When the advocates of imperialism find it im possible to reconcile a colonial policy with the principles of our government or with the canons of morality; when they are unable to defend it upon the ground of religious duty or pecuniary profit, they fall back in helpless despair upon the asser tion that it is destiny. "Suppose it does violate the constitution," thoy say; "suppose it does break all the commandments; suppose it does entail upon the nation an incalculable, expenditure of blood and money; it is destiny and we must submit." The people have not voted for imperialism;' no national convention has declared for it; no congress has passed upon it. To whom, then, has the future been reveal...

What they have ,heen asking themselves is whether or not the Philippine islands are a good bargain. This is a phase of the question upon which the democratic party does not touch, yet it is the - issue upon which our permanent relations with the Philippine people will eventually be established. In trying to play the sympathetic dodge instead of getting before the American people in a practical and respectable fashion, the democratic party lost a great opportunity. If, instead of blubbering about the inhumanities of our soldiers and maundering about our government having no right under the consti tution to exercise the power and dignity" of a sovereign country, the democratic politicians had gone into the debates claiming that the Philippines were a bad bargain which we could not afford to hold very long, they might have gained following where the pusillanimous course which they cho...
