Political Clubs Debate.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The question was: "Resolved, That the policy of the McKinley Administration in regard to the Philippines should be supported." E. E. Sargent IL, and E. H. Letchworth '02 upheld the affirmative, M. T. Hall 1L, and P. E. Fitzpatrick '02 supported the negative. The speaking on both sides was convincing and to the point. The Republicans briefly reviewed the administration's policy in the Philippines, and tried to show that the Filipinos are both incapable and undesirous of self government.
