Cohlesklll speech Mr firyan quoted Sen
ator Depew on the army question:
*T want to show you what Mr. Depew
said only two year* ago An army of
100.000 was then being talked of ami he
said It would take more than that If
we carried out the colontel policy. He
" "It would mean the Increase of our
army to 150.000. more likely lo 200.000 men.
It would mean the increase of our annual
expenditures to double what they are
"That was two years ago. Now the
Republicans are advocating an Imperial
policy. Let me show you what Mr. D*-
pew said of that imperial Idea:
•• - You cannot have empire without all
It* attributes, ami that means a practical
revolution of our form* of government
and an abandonment of the bellefa which
the fathers held when they eatabltsheil
this government In 1770 '
"That t* the opinion of your own Sena
tor Depew only two year* ago. Your
President staled only three year* ago that
forcible annexation was rklmlnal nggre*.
slon and contrary to our code of morality,
and we say now what they said then, that
It mean* a revolution In government; It
mean* the abandonment of our Ideals. It
means that adoption of the eokmlal policy
against which our forefather* protested
123 year* ago. and before you Republican*
vote for that I want you to remember
that when you sign the death warrant
of self-government In the Philippine Isl
and* you sign the death warrant of our
own self-government In this country, when
you deny liberty to others you strike a
