Tho President says:
To the Congress of tho United States:
"As vou assemble for tho discharge of

"Our survival for ono hundred years
Is not sufliclent to assure Us that wo no

tenance, with all lis promised blowings,
of 'n government founded upon tho free
dom of tbo people. Tho time rather ad

in tho course of snfety, and whotltur wo
have boforo us a way plain and clear
which lends to happiness and perpetu
ity." Coutluulng, ho said tbo chart adopted
for guidauco was tbo Constitution, and
departure from the lluus laid down by It
is failure. Alluding to tho wonderful
urowth of Iho business interests of the
foiinirv. ho says: "Wo view with pride
and satisfaction this bright picture of
our country's growth nnd prosperity,
while only a closer scrutiny tlovolops u
somber shading. Upon more careful in
snecllon wo find tho wealth and luxury
of our cities tnluglcd with poverty nnd
wretchedness and unremuncratlvo toll.
Wo discover thai tho foi tunes
realized by our manu faclttrcra arc no
longer solely tbo reward of sturdy In
dustry and enlightened foresight, but
that thoy result from tho discriminating
favor of tho Government, and are largely
built upon undtio exactions from the
masses of our people.

death beneath an iron heel. Corporations
arc becomingtho people's masters Instead
of remaining their servants nnd creatures
of the law.
inn TAnirr niscessio.v.
Instead of limiting tho tribute drawn from
our citizens, to tho necessities pf Its economi
cal administration, tho Government persists la
exacting, from tho subitiiuco of the people,
millions which unapplied and usolcss llo
dormant lu Its Treasury. This llatjraut In
justice and this breach of faith aud Obligation
add to oxtortlon tho danger attending tho di
version or tho currency of tho country from
tho legltlmatu channels ot business.
Under tho samo laws by which theso results
nro produced, the Government permits many
millions tnoro to bo added to tho cost of tho
living of our people and to bo takcu from our
consumers, which unreasonably swell tho
protlU of a small but powerful minority.
Tho people must still bo taxed for tho sup
port ol tho Government under tho operation
of tariff laws. Hut to tho extent that Iho mass
of our citizens aro Inordinately burdened be
yond any useful public purpuse, and for tho
licnetlt ot a favorod few. the Government, uu
dcr pretext of an cxercloo of Its taxing power,
enters gratuitously Into paituershlp Willi
thesu favorites, to their advantage und to tho
Injury of a vast majority of our ueofilo.
This is not equality beforo tho law.
Tho existing situation Is Injurious to tho
health of our entire body-politic. It stifles,
lu those for whoso benollt It Is permitted, all
patriotic lovo of country, und substitutes In
its pluco lolllsh greed anil grasping avarice.
Devotion to American -citizenship for Its own
sako and for what It should accomplish as a
motive to our nation's advancement uud tho
happiness' of till our people, Is displaced by
tho assumption that tho Government, Instead
of being the cinbodlmcut ot equality, Is but
an instrumentality through which especial
Individual advantages aro to ue gained.
Tho arrogance of this assumption is uncon
cealed. It appears In tho sordid disregard of
all but personal Interests, in tho refusal to
abato for tho benctlt ot others ono Iota of sel
fish advantage, and In combinations to por
pctuato such advantages through cllorts to
control legislation nnd Improperly lnllucnco
tho suffrages of tho people.
Tho grievances of those not Included within
tho circle, of theso beneficiaries, when fully
realized, will suroly uroitso Irritation and
discontent. Our farmers' long-sultcrlng aud
patient struggling iuthoracoof Ilfo with tho
hardest and most unremitting toll will not
fall to soo, In spito of misrepresentations and
misleading fallacies, that they aro obliged to
accept such prices for tliclr products as aro

with tbo farmers of tho world; thatthelr lands
aro declining lu valuo whllo their debts In

hanced prices for tho things they need, that
thq scanty returns of their labor fall to furnish
their support or leave no margin for accumu
lation.1' MEANS OP IIUVISINO THU TAltlFl'.
A Just and sensible revision ot our tariff laws
should bo mado for tho relief of thoso of our
countrymen who suffer under present condi
tions. Such, a revision should receive tho sup
port of all who lovo that Justleo nnd equality
duo to American citizenship, of nil who rcnllzo
that lu this Justice nnd cnuallty our Govern
ment finds Its strength and its power to pro
t6iit'tn'd 'c!ttz'i!!l and his property, of nil who
bcllevo that tho contented competence and.
comfof t of.many accord better with the spirit
of our Institutions than colossal fortunes
unfairly gathered lu the hands of a
fow, of all who appreciate that
tho forbenranco and fraternity amone our
pcoplo, which recognize tho valuo of every
American interest, aro tho surest guaranty of
our national progress, and of all who desire, to
sco the products ot American skill and! in
genuity lu every market of tho world with a
rcsultlng'restoratlon of American commerce.
Ttio necessity of tho reduction ot our rev
enue Is so apparent as to bo generally con
ceded. Hut tbo means by which this end shall
bo accomplished and tha sum ot direct bencflt
which shall result to our citizens, present a
controversy of tho utmost Importance.
COMMUNISM A MEXACK.
Communism Is a hateful thing and a menace
to pcaco and organized government. Hut tha
communism of combined wealth and capital,
tho outgrowth of overweening cupidity and
selfishness, which Insidiously undermines tho
Justice and Intecrlty of frco Institutions, Is not
less dancorous ;than tho communism ot op
pressed poverty and toll, which, exasperated
by InJUstlco and dlsconjont, attacks with wild
disorder tho citadel of rule.
Ho mocks the pcoplo who proposes that Iho
Government shall protect tho rich nnd that
thoy In turn will caro for tho laboring poor.
Any Intermediary between tho pcoplo aud
tliclr Government, or tho least delegation of
the enro and'protcctlon the Government owes
to tho humblest citizen In tho land, makes tho
boast of.freo Institutions a glittering delusion
mid tho pretended boon of American citizen
ship a shameless Imposition.
Ah to extravagant appropriations ho
says: Tiicro- suouiti uo no scuomo ac

of public monoy, with nil their demoral

Treasury of its present surplus, or as
furnishing pretoxt for resisting n proper
reduction in tarill' rates. Existing ovils
and iujustlco should bo honestly recog

tho struggle until a plan is porfected, fair
and conservative toward existing indus
tries, but which will reduce the cost to
consumers of tho necessaries of life,
while it provides for our manufacturers
tiio advantago of freer raw materials and
permits no injury to tho interests of
Tbo cause for which tho battle Is waged
is comprised within lines clearly aud dis
tinctly defined. It should never bo com

TENSIONS AND PRIVATE CLAIMS.
"Thoro is u growing assumption,'' ho
says, "that, as against tho Government
und In favor of prlvato claims and In
terests, tho usual rules and limitations of
business principles und just dealing
should bo waived.
"Theso Ideas have been unhappily
much encouraged by legislative acquies

thu Government is too easily accorded in
favor of tho cltl.en; tho failure to sup

CIVIC US III AS MILITARY.
The Character of the Inauguration
WHAT CHAIRMAN PARKER SAYS OF IT.
Till) J'iiiiiihih Homo Miirlivl ('lull of lloi
tun C'litiiliiB llcrr.
From communications received by
members of tlio Inaugural Committee and
gentlemen connected with It only by
reason of their desire to witness n magnlfl
cant demonstration on tho Hit of March,
it would appear that tlio impression pre
vails in some localities that tho procession
will bo largely of a military character
and that political organizations will bo
prohibited from participation. This Is n
mistaken idea nud will unquestionably
interfere seriously wllli the success of
the parade, if it not bo at onco contra
dicted, and nil doubt removed.
Colonel Myron M. Parker, chairman
of tho Committee on Civic Organizations,
in a conversation with tin KvrctNi Post
representative, staled emphatically that
it was thodcslroof his committee to
interest as many civic organizations ns
posslblo in the contemplated parade, and
that this purpose may be more oaslly ac
complished ho has appointed ns mem
bers of his eoniniltlco men from dllTorcnt
parts of the country as Stnto representa
tives, with a view to enlisting the co
operation of their dilluront Slato organ
izations. In this innuncr the matter is simplified
materially. As authorized representa
tives of the committee, those gcntlomon
will bo nblo to furnish such Information
ns may bcdcslrod.porfcotall arrangements
for thoso organizations Intending lo par
ticipate In tho ceremonies, and no doubt
brinti about a. much larger representation
ot civil bodies titan could havo been ac
complished without tliclr assistance,
Col. Parker slated that his eoinmlttou
would furnish evory facility possible to
Insure Mic comfort and welfare of clubs
taking part in tlio parade, aud that In
stead of being debarred from partici
pating, political organliitlous will bo
afforded a cordial welcome and troatod
with the respect and courtesy due to sttch
a patriotic factor lu American politics.
Many inquries havo been received con
cerning what positions w ill tic assigned
In tho piocession. Touching brieily on
this subject Colonel Parker said that
"nothing definite had yet been deter
mined upon uud piobably some llttlo
time would elapse beforo tho announce
ment would be inndo; however," con
tinued he. "10 prevent nil confusion and
to do 'away witli any Ill-feeling which
might bo engendered, somo rule will
havo to bo adopted which will bo just in
all respects. Probably tho seniority in
tuo organization of flic uiuerent com
mands will bo taken into consideration
so that the position assigned to each club
will douend largely on its age.'
All the committees for tho inaugural
ceremonies have now boon npppititod and
will at once enter upon the work do
signed for them to accomplish, Excel
lent selections have been made and thu

or if thoy voto their ballots aro not
