two ago that if the Republicans had control of
Congress and the Executive office for five daY
they would present a comprehensive financial
bill that would satisfactorily ment the present
situation His party will not have control of
the Executive when the new Concrtss meets
but President Cleveland I so entirely
in accord with the Republican financial
policy that his cooperation and assistance
can be counted upon for a plan of currency re
form and Mr Reeds promise oT action within
five days will therefore b Pomp put to the
teat In the mean time until the new Concresi

probably continue and a new isut of bonds will

IV e Kfnatt and Ilmar of J Ih
In my last annual messatre I commended to
the serious consideration of the Congress the
condition of our national finances aod in con
nection with the subject endorsed the plan of
currency legislation which at that time seemed
CUrl tt tmo me
to furnish protection against iiujndinc danger
This clan has not been approved by the Con
r In the mean time the situation has so
changed and the emergency DOW appran so
threatening that 1 deem it my duty t ask at
ttie hands of the legislative branch of the Oov
ornmeut such prompt and effective action as
wil restore confidence in our financial sound
nw aau avert business disaster and uultersiU I
distress among our lopl
Whatever may be the merits of the plan out
i lined in m annual message as a remedy for ills
then existing and a a safeguard agatnxt the
UrpletloL of the gold reserve then in the Treas
ury I am now convinced that IU reception by
the ConprrM and our preoent advanced stage of
fnanna wrplextty necessitates additional or
different legislation
With natural resource unlimited in variety
and productive rtrvtigth and with a people
whose activity and enlerprU arek only a fair
cpportuniu to achieve national succes and
greatness our progress should not be checked
by a false financial policy and a hells diira
Crd of sound monetary la nor should the
timidity D tea which they engender stand in
tLe ay of our prosperity
It U hardly disputed that this predicament
confront U today Therefore no one In any
degree responsible for the making and execution
of our lawn I should fail to tee a patriotic dUt in
honestly und sincerely attempting to relieve
ite situation Manifest thU effort will nut
lucceea uulru It 1 made uutrummellrd bj the

The message was read by the Secretary of the

tention and l aptiarcntl with Interest by etery I
Senator present When the reading was con I
cluded the VicePresident said that tIt mrnsace
would lie on the table and b printed I
Mr Sherman I think it should be referred to
the Fn ncf Committee and I make that motion II
After some debate the VlctPre > Ulenl put the
question and the motion w a s agreed to so the

Senators cencrall were unwilling to talk pub

Mr 1 Teller niHaking for the sliver mm de 1 I
clared that tin message Indicated the continu

the coin of the tnlted State
Mr 1 Hill aid The message state the situ
