Excerpt from The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Vol. 30: Issued Bi-Monthly, July-December, 1907

Administration is the principle upon which our colonial policy should proceed for a century to come. Wherever we have departed from the idea of administration as such, we have made an error which natural conditions will gradually compel us to correct. Not sudden "self-government" for peoples who have not yet learned the alphabet of liberty; not territorial independence for islands whose ignorant, suspicious and primitive inhabitants, left to themselves, would prey upon one another until they become the inevitable spoil of other powers; not the flimsy application of abstract governmental theories possible only to the most advanced races and which, applied to undeveloped peoples, work out grotesque and fatal results - not anything but the discharge of our great national trust and greater national duty to our wards by common-sense methods will achieve the welfare of our colonies and bring us success in the civilizing work to which we are called. And common sense in the management of our dependencies means practical administration of government until our wards are trained in continuous industry, in orderly liberty and in that reserve and steadiness of character through which alone self-government is possible.

Such administration of government is nature's method for the spread of civilization. Throughout all history administering peoples have appeared. Always these peoples have been the most advanced peoples of their time. These advanced peoples have extended their customs and their culture by the administration of government to less developed peoples. Thus, in the process of the centuries, these backward peoples have evolved those qualities of mind and character and that mode of living called civilization. This is true of the ancient nations - witness the effect of Latin administration, harsh and even cruel as it was, upon the ultimate development and destiny of Gaul and Teuton.
