It is now over a year since the Civil Government assumed the reins of office, and most of the conditions that were described in Congress were conditions that existed under the military regime and prior to the time when Governor Taft and his associates assumed charge.As the chief correspondent in the Philippines of the Associated Press, I was probably in a better position to get at the real facts as they existed in the provinces than anybody else in the Archipelago- better than the civil authorities, for they relied entirely upon the local governors- better than the military authorities, as their reports were entirely from army officers.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
