"WASiirsrGTOir, December 4. Secretary
Windom has rendered his first annual re
port to Congress. It is a very extensive
document. Upon the subject of surplus
revenue and the tariff, he says:
Durfoe the 18 months ended October 3L 1SS9,
tbete were purchased under the circular of
April 17. 1S8S. United States bonds to the
amount of 899,233.950. Of these f32.279.400 -were
obtained prior to March 4. 18S9. and S66,9H,5oO
after that date. Notwithstanding the dimin
ished supply of bonds for sale in the markets
the Government has been able to obtain at
constantly decreasinc prices a sufficient amount
of bonds to meet the requirements of the
suiting rund for the current fiscal year and
carry out the provisions of law respecting the
Investment of the surplus revenue. 'NY bile it
was necessary to pay 108 for 4Uver cent bonds
of 1891 purchased March 6, 1689, with a net
premium of 7.97, they were offered and ac
cepted October 81 at 105? the net premium
being 4.99. a decrease in actual premium of
nearly 3 per cent. During the same period, or
from April 6 to October 31, 1SS9. the price of 4
per cent bonds was reduced from 129 to 127 and
the net premium from 2S.93 to 26.66, a reduction
in actual premium of over2J per cent.
It appears, from the foregoing estimates, that
after due provision shall have been made for
meetiug the ordinary expenses of the Govern
ment, including the requirements of the sink
ing fund, there will remain, under the operation
of existing laws, an annual surplus of revenue
of about -11000,000. An accumulation of money
In tho Treasury beyond the necessities of the
Government endangers legitimate business,
tends to excessive and wasteful public expendi
ture, and to encourage extravagance in private
affairs. In tbe presence of such conditions it is
a manifest duty to wisely guard against a
future needless accumulation with its fruitful
train of evils.
MEANS OP SEDUCTION.
If a portion of the surplus revenue can be
used to enlarge our foreign markets, and there
by advance our commercial and productive
interests, it is tbe part of wisdom to so apply it.
The strengthening of our coast defenses, and
the building up of our navy, subjects of na
tional concern, offer further opportunity for
wise expenditures that would return the money
directly to the people. But after making pro
vision for such expenditures as may be proper
acd reasonable for these Durnoses. a large an
nual surplus will still remain under the opera- I
tl an of pristine laws. Induction of the inter- 1
est-bearing debt of tbe Government, by the
purchase of bonds, is the expedient resorted to
lor returning a part of this surplus to the chan
nels of trade, and is the only means now open
to the Secretary of the Treasury for the use of
this money. To require from him this meas
ure of responsibility and discretion is of doubt
A possible su ccessf ul appeal to this discretion
tempts individuals to rash business undertak
ings, in the belief that the money in the Treas
ury will be used to avert threatened disaster.
In the absence of such discretion in the Secre
tary, the possible use of this money would
cease to enter into the calculation of the busi
nessrorld. It is manifestlywrongto take money
from tbe people for tbe cancellation of bonds,
to tbe saving of only about 2 per cent of inter
est, wben it is worth to them, perhaps, tbree
times as mnch in their business. It is rather
through a reduction of customs receipts and
internal taxes that an unnecessary accumula
tion of money in the Treasury should be
Tbe subject of exempting from taxation alco
hol used in the arts merits and has received
mnch attention. It is estimated npon careful
inquiry that about 6,000,000 gallons.of alcohol
are annually used in this country in a vast
number of chemical and medicinal prepara
tions of common and needful use, as well as in
many of tbe important mechanical and indus
trial arts, from which a tax of $3,400,000 is col
lected. Its use for these purposes would
doubtless be largely increased were it not for
tbis tax. wnlch is equivalent to about 230 per
cent of its value. This is a direct and onerous
burden upon our industrial interests and npon
tbe consumers of the articles produced, for
which there now seems to be no necessity or
BEYISIOIT OP THE TAEIPP.
Whatever differences of opinion there may
be with regard to the best method of disposing
or the surplus revenue, and preventing the ac
cumulation of money in the treasury beyond
the proper needs of tbe Government, aBu how
ever diverse may be opinions as to the abstract
question of taxation for revenue purposes,
customs and internal, there is general agree
ment that a revision of the tariff and customs
laws is urgently needed. I believe it to be the
dominant sentiment of the country that, in
the adjustment of duties on imports, protec
tion to home industry should be a governing
consideration. While there is a wide di
vergence of judgment on this proposition,
it cannot well be denied that it is tbe settled
policy of tbis Government that such duties
shall be SO levied as to result in tbe protection
of labor, employed in domestic industries, from
destructive torcign competition.
One of the f njidamental objects in the levy
ing of duties on imports, declared in tbe pre-
amiue oi &ne uni barm act paft&eu oy congress
in 17S9, was the encouragement and protection
of manufactures. The doctrine thus pro
claimed bas broadened with our advancing
civilization and growth, and its wisdom has
been demonstrated by the marvelous develop
ment of tbose industries, protected by the high
duties, demanded by the necessities of the
Government incident to civil war. It should,
however, be remembered that the" prime object
in tbe imposition of these high duties was the
raising of revenue, and rates were adjusted to
that end, rather than to the protection and de
velopment of domestic industries. It came
about, therefore, that the measure of protec
tion iras capricious and unequal, and some in
dustries were greatly prospered, while others,
equally favored by natural resources and con
ditions, either languished or failed of develop
ment Furthermore, In the construction or a tariff
law in its broader sense, reference should be
had not only to the changed conditions of our
domesticcommerce and manufactures since the
enactment of previous tariffs, but also to the
cultivation and extension of our trade rela
tions with those countries whose geographical
situation and resources are such as to make in
timate commercial intercourse with them par
- THE SIEECHAST SIAEnfE.
It is but a few years since we stood first
among the nations in ship budding, and were
excelled only by Great Britain in the amonnt
of our ocean tonnage. Now. so far as foreign
trade is concerned, onr ship yards are compar
atively silent, and our flag bas almost disap
peared from tbp high seas. Once 75 per cent of
our tonnage was carried in onr own ships; now
87 per cent is carried in foreign bottoms. Once
onr ocean commerce enriched our own coun
trymen; now our immense tonnage of ex
ports and imports gives einplovment mainly
to alien labor, and alien capital levies
upon onr people an annual tribute
estimated at $150,000,000 for freights and fares.
Nor is this tribute the only, or even the worst,
feature of tbe case, for our farmers and
mechanics are practically excluded from the
markets of the world, excent as ihev nuh.
reached by tbe circuitous routes prescribed for
their own advantage and convenience, by our
great competitors in these markets. An over
whelming puolic sentiment demands that tbis
humiliation and loss shall cease. If oar in
dustrial Interests are to prosper. If onr com
merce is to be sustained, extended and in
creased, we must cease to be dsDendnnc nnrm
any other nation or people for access to for-
Jonbtless there are serious obstacle n ,.
way, ana mcj me tiraitr now man tney were
a few years ago, on account of the immense
capital invested-by foreign steamship com
panies, with which we shall have to compete.
These obstacles will constantly increase, for
every year adds largely to tbe capital thus in
vested. Whatever is to be done must be done
firomptly. Wo have tried the do nothing policy
ongenongb. Its results are before us, and
they are not satisfactory. Shall we accept as
inevitable our present humiliating and un
profitable position, or shall we use means at
command to regain our lost power and prestige
on the ocean? Shall we give that protection
and "encouragement to our shipping Interests
that otner nations give to toeirs, ana which we
freely give to all our other great interests? Or
shaltwe.br continued neglect, suffer them to
be utterly destroyed r
Firmly convinced that American steamship
builders and owners cannot unaided compete
with the Governments of Europe; that witbont
proper aid and encouragement from tbe United
States, we shall not only fall to regain our lost
foreign carrying trade, but even to retain mnch
longer the small remnant that remains, and
that tbe restoration of our merchant marine
is essential to the extension of our foreign
trade, I do not hesitate to 'recommend that
liberal and judicious aid and encouragement
be given for the construction of steam mer
chant vcf sels, suitable for ue as cruisers and
transports In time of war: that fair and liberal
rates be paid to American steamers for trans
portation of mails to foreign countries; and
that special aid. either in the form of mall par.
or for mileatre run. be made for the establish-1
meat of direct connection by American J
fMl- - " h
steamer lines wi( Mexico!, Central and South
America, and with China aad Japan.
The conUtsned coinage of the silver dollar, at
a constantly increaing monthly quota, is a dis
turbing element in the otherwise excellent
financial condition of the countrv, and a posi
tive hindrance to BnylBterBational-apreement
looking to tbe free coinage of both metals at a
fixed ratio. Mandatory-purchases by the Gov
ernment of stated quantities of silver, and
mandatory coinage of the same into full legal
tender dollars, are an unprecedented anomaly,
and have proved futile, not only In restoring
tho value of silver, but 'even In staying the
downward price of that metal.
The Secretary then proposed the following
solution of the problem:
If sne Treasury notes against deposits of silver
bullion at the market mice of silver when de
posited, payable on demand in such quantities
of silver bullion as will equal in value, at the
date of presentation, the number of dollars ex
pressed on the face of the notes at the market
Srice or silver, or in gold, at the option of the
overnment; or in silver dollars at the option,
of the holder. Repeal the compulsory feature
of the present coinage act. In explaining the
proposed measure, at tbis time, it is intended
to aeai omy wiin its general leatnres, uuv, "
desired, a bill embracing the details believed to
be necessary to its satisfactory operation will
1)9 prepared and snbmitted for the considera
tion of Congress.
The proposition is briefly this: To open the
Mints of the United States to the free deposit
of silver, tbe market value of the same (not to
exceed SI for 412.6 grains of standard silver) at
the time of deposit, to be paid In Treasury
notes; said notes to be redeemable in the quan
tity of diver which could be purchased by tho
number of dollars expressed on the f aco of the
notes at the time presented for payment, or in
gold, at the option of the Government, and to
be receivable for customs, taxes, and all public
dues; and when so received they may be re
issued; and such notes, when held by any na
tional banking association, shall be counted as
part of its lawful reserve.

For the fiscal year of 1600 the estimated re
ceipts are $385,000,000 and expenditures S293,

As compared with $103,220,464 71 at the cioso
of the fiscal jearl88S. the cash balance in the
Treasury over and above all accrued liabilities
at the close of 1889 was 571,481,042 39. If to this
balance there be added tbe estimated surplus
for the fiscal year, tbe amount that may be
applied to the purchase of bonds to June 39,
1S90. will te $163,481,012 39. Bonds and other
obligations of the United States have already
been purchased and redeemed to the extent of

The total receipts of the last fiscal year have
been exceeded but six timas in tbe history of
the Government. The ordinary expenditures
of the fiscal year ended June 30, 1889. exclusive
of premium on bond.", were also greater than in
any other year, except during the war period,
and the years which bore its cost most heavily,
being $22,312,656 93 greater than for the fiscal
yearT.888. The expenditures for tbelast quarter
of the fiscal year 1889 were $9790,636 i4 less
than for the last quarter of the fiscal year 1SSS.
He Denies tbe Entire Dor to a Plea for
O'SnIUvan and Kunze A Claim
That the Evidence Was
Chicago, December t Mr. Donahoe,
the attorney lor Knnze and O'Snlllvan, oc
cupied the attention of the Court in the
Cronin case to-day. He first took up
Kunze's case, arguing at Ien;th that there
was no apparent reason why he should con
spire to kill Dr. Cronin, and the identifica
tions of him as having' been seen in the flat
at 117 Clark street and drinking in the com
pany of Conghlin and O'Sullivan in the
neighborhood of the Carlson cottage soon
after the murder, were incomplete and in
definite. Mr. Donahoe then tool! np the case of
O'Sullivan, and occupied nearly all of the
remainder of the forenoon in a discussion
of the alibi evidence from various points of
view, drawing the conclusion that it was in
con testably proved O'Sullivan could have
had nothing to do with the murder. Jnst
before the noon recess the speaker recurred
to the case of Kunze, pointing as evidence
of innocence the fact that though he antici
pated arrest, he did not rnn away and de
claring that it was not shown thatHunze
knew either of the;defendants except Congh
lin and O'Sullivan. prior to the murder.
Oh the reassembling of the court Mr.
Donahoe resumed his address. He read
from legal works a definition of the term
reasonable doubt, and a number of decisions
touching circumstantial evidence. Taking
up the question oi O'Sullivan's contract
with Cronin, the speaker read decisions
touching criminal intention. This was to
show that this circumstance could not be
turned against O'Sullivan, because it had
not been proved that O'Sullivan's intention
was to use this contract to bring about
Cromn's death. O'Sullivan, said Mr. Don
ahoe, had no motive to commit this crime;
he was not at odds with Cronin; Cronin
never did anything to harm him; the ab
sence of a motive must be taken into the ac
count when making np the judgment The
contract was made" openly, and O'Sullivan
freely confessed it and told all about it to
whoever asked, even alter the murder.
Two or three times daring tbe course of his
speech, Mr. Donahoe took occasion to refer
to Mr. Hynex, of the prosecution, in de
nunciatory or sarcastic terms. At the close
of his address the court adjourned.
