PRESIDENT CLEVELAND'S MESSAGE.
The Economist of Dec. 11th re
views President Cleveland's Mes
sage, tnoro paiticttlarly tho tariff
nnd currency (questions, in the fol
Apart from its references to tho
fishery dispute with Canada, tho
negotiations with regard to which,
we arc told, promise to lead to a
reasonable settlement, the portions
of President Cleveland's Message
which excite most interest here nro
those that deal with the tariff and
currency questions. Both of these
questions have lattcily been forced
into greater prominenco by tho
financial prosperity of tho States,
and although it may bo doubted
whether Congress will be inclined to
take any definite action with regard
to them during tlio short Session
now opened, they will certainly
press for solution in the near future.
The main factor in the situation
is the enormous revenue sutplus that
now yearly accrues to the Ti casury.
Thus, in the year ending June last
the revenue exceeded the expendi-
tuic by fully 18: millions sterling,
and it is calculated that if no change
is made in the scheme of taxation,
the current year will yield a surplus
of fully 18 millions. In tho past this
free revenue has been applied by tho
Treasury to the reduction of the
National Debt. But the limit of its
use in this way has now been nearly
reached. The only debt bonds
which the Government have the
power of redeeming at will arc the
llj per cents., of which only about
1."j,000,0001 tuo now outstanding.
The lcmaiuing debt consists of
percent bonds, 'which are not re
deemable until the 1st of September,
1801, and 4 per cents., which do
not become redeemable until the 1st
of July, 1907. The time is conse
quently close at hand when all the
debt which the Government have the
option of paying off will have been
redeemed, and then, as President
Cleveland points out, ,lif the pre
sent revenue system continues,
there will be vastly more income
than is necessary to meet expenses,
thus creating an excess which may
bo uselessly hoaidcd, or lead to
waoteful public extravagance."
The spcetaclo of a treasury groan
ing under tlio weight of a huge sur
plus, and casting about for some
means of relieving itself of the bur
Men, is one which tho people and
governments of the Old AVorld must
legard with envy. Yet, however
enviable tho financial position of the
Stales may appear from the stand
point of those nations that have a
never-ending struggle to make ends
meet, to the Government at Wash
ington it is embarrassing enough.
The ready w.ry out of the difllculty
is to reduce taxation, but every at
tempt in this direction meets with
strenuous opposition. Tho two main
sources of lcvenuc in the States are
the duties levied on imports and the
Excise duties on spirituous liquors
and tobacco, Against any matciial
modification of the import duties the
Protectionists w ill fight tooth and
nail ; while, on the other hand, there
is a large, and probably a piepond
ciating, volume of public opinion
against a reduction of the Excise
duties, which aro certainly not ex
cessive, aud fall upon a class of
commodities which m all countries
are rightly regarded as the most
legitimate objects of taxation: Thus
no proposal which tlio Government
may make will meet with general
acceptance ; and although President
Cleveland strongly recommends the
repeal of all import duties on raw
matctinls, and a giadual reduction
of tho duties on manufactured
goods, Congress, it is to be feared,
will hardly be inclined to act at pre
sent on his suggestion. The dis
position will probably be to defer
coming to a definite decision until
all possiblo debt redemptions have
been effected, and meanwhile the
Piotectiotiisls will bo striving to
dissjpatp the surplus, cither by in
creasing expcndltmc, or by divert
ing to local authoiitips some portion
of tlio excise rovemiu that is now
collected by the State. Tliero can
bo no doubt, how over, that the
superfluity of the Treasury resources
lias given the free-traders a strong
vantage ground from which to press
forward the question of taiiff ie
form, and to press it witli much
better prospects of ultimate success.
One suggestion for the disposal
ot tho bui plus which has been made
by Mr, Manning, tho Secretary of
tlio Treasury, js so briefly rofcrred
to in tlio telegrams, that further in
formation jespecting it is needed be
fore it can bo properly discussed.
Mr. Manning, it would appear, pio
poses that excess revenues should
bo applied to redeeming tho GOf
millions or o of greenbacks now in
circulation. As a matter of fact,
if tho JCtiicnicntrfjf the Government
paper money wpro resolved upon,
there would not bu G!) jniljions to
redeem out of rovenuo, but only 4Q
millions, against its unto issues,
That, however, is a mutter of
detail, aud tho vital question is
what currency Mr. Manning pro
poses to issue In place of the notes,
should tlioy bo withdrawn. It is to
bo remombcrcd that the noto issues
of the national banks, which sup
plement tho Government issue, aro
being lnpidly reduced, and, in fact,
gradually extinguished, by tho re
demption of tho bonds upon which
they1 arc based. Aud if concurrently
with this extinction of private issue
the Government Isbuc were nlso sup
pressed, the States would be left
without any paper currency at ails
with the exception of tho certificate,
issued by tlio Treasury against de
posits of gold nnd silvor. In that
case, it would, of couisc, as tho
cheaper and more abundant metals,
that would bo made to form the
basis of the paper currency, and a
very long step indeed would bo
taken towards placing the currency
of tlio country on a puiely silver
basts. This, however, is obviously
not what Mr. Manning desires, be
cause he advises the repeal of the
existing law for the compulsory
coinage of silver, partly on the
giound that it causes an undue dis
placement of gold by silver; nnd as
it is not at all likely' that Mr. Man
ning is really acting so inconsist
ently, it will bo best to wait for the
text of his report beforo venturing
upon any criticism of it.
On the vexed silver question, tho
President practically repeats tho
recommendations he made twelve
months ago. Sinco then the Ti cas
ury havo been striving, by every
means in their power, to utilise for
currency purposes the silver money
they arc compelled to coin, their
devices including latterly the issue
oi one-dollar silver ccrtilicatcs. In
spite of all their efforts, however,
tho stock of unused silver continues
to augment. On tho 1st of November,
1881, there wcro in tho Treasury
silver dollars to the valuo of about
3-2,800,0001, and against these sil
ver certificates to the amount of
18,700,0001 wcro in circulation, the
balance of silver coin for which no
use could be foundbcing thus 11,
100,0001. On tlio 1st of November
this year the stock of silver dollars
in Treasury was 3G,GOO,0001, the
amount of outstanding silver certifi
cates '20,100,0001, and the balance
of unused silver consequently
amounted to 16,500,0001, or 2,400,'
0001, more than at the same date
last year. It is quite evident, there
fore, not only that the silver coin
age is greatly in excess of current
wants, but also that the Treasury
holds a surplus stock which, even if
not a single now dollar were coined,
would enable it to meet all the re
quirements of the country for sev
eral years to come. Tliero is, con
sequently, not a shadow of necessity
for the continued coinage of silver,
and very pertinently, President
Cleveland reminds Congress that
"thoio seems little propriety in
building vaults to store silver, when
tho only pictenco for its coinage is
its necessity as a circulating medi
um." He recommends, therefore,
that tho coinage Bliould bo suspend
ed, and Secretary Manning backs
this i ecommendation by an argu
ment to the effect that such a sus
pension, by largely augmenting the
market supplies of silver, will so
disorganize tlio markot for the
metal, as to compel European Gov
ernments, and more especially tho
Government of this country, in self
protection, to adopt a system of
international bi-mettaliism. How
utterly fallacious this idea is we
have frequently endeavored to show.
Instead of working towards bi
metallism, the suspension of the
silver purchases of the American
Government would, in our opinion,
have the very opposite effect. But
bo that as it may, the coining by the
United States year by year of mil
lions of silver dollars which nobody
wants is so cggiegiously foolish a
proceeding, that it is impossible to
beliove that the people will long per
mit the public money to bo so waste
