President Cleveland transmitted a

President discuses tho critical linaii
, cial situation, and says that, to pro
vido tho failure of timoly legislative
action, oxecutivo authority that
could bo exorcised without addi
tional legislation wai employed.
Ho then explained tho transaction
1 as follows:
''Therefore, in pursuance to Sec
tion 3700 of tho Itevisi'd Statutes
tho details of an arrangement this
1 day havo boon concluded with par
; ties abundantly able to fulfill their
undertaking, whereby bonds of tho
I United States are authorized under
1 tho act of July 1-1, 187G, payablo in
coin thirty years after their dato
with interest at tho rate of 1 percent
per auuutu, to Amount to a little less
than 102,000,000, to bo issua! for tho
purchase of gold coin amounting to
a sum slightly in excoss of .505,000,
000, to bo lelivored to the Treasury
of the United Statos, which sum,
added to tho gold now held iu our
( reserve, will to rest in such rosorvo
as to tnako it amount to something
I moro than .$100,000,000, Such pre
mium is to bo allowed to tho Gov
' ornment upon tho bonds so as to fix
tho rato of interest upon the amount
of gold realized at 'i percent per
"At least one-half of tho gold to
bo obtained is to be supplied from
abroad, which is a very important
' and favorable feature to tho trans
, action. Tho privilege is especially
reserved to tho Government to sub
I stitute, at par, within ton days from
; mis uaie, iu neu m - percent coin

, in gold, and bearing only l porcent
. interest if tho issue of tho same in
tbo meantime bo authorized by Con

circumstances and considering all
the objects desired to be tho best
''In tbo agreement just concluded
thero will bo an annual saving of
interest to tho Government, if 8 per

! tuted for percent bonds. Undor '
' tho privilego reserved thero would
l be $539,100, amounting in thirty
years, or at tho maturity of the coin
bonds, to $16,174,770."
A New York dispatch says: Tho '
bond transaction consummated to-
! day, strictly spoakiug, is not a sale
of bonds for gold, but a purchase of
gold to bo paid for in bonds. Tho I
issue was not mado under the author-
ity granted by tho resumption act, ,
but undor soction 1)700 of tho He-'
vised Statutes, which reads as fol-
lows: "Tho Secretary of tho Treas
