Empire or Republic? (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Empire or Republic? I have always thought that all men should be free, but if any should be slaves, it should be first those who desire it for themselves and secondly those who desire it for others. Abraham lincoln. From an address to an Indiana Regiment, March I 7, 1865. Complete Works of Lincoln, Vol. II., p. 662. The Philippine Archipelago contains a few large islands, (chief among which is Luzon, ) and unnumbered small ones, with a population estimated to be eight millions or more, who may be grouped into two classes in considering their relations to the United States. A small portion, occupying what is called the Sulu Archipelago are Mahometans, and are thus described by Pres. Schurman of the Philippine Commission. They are powerful, religious fanatics who care nothing for death, and believe that the road to heaven can be attained by killing Christians.
