?;|ull In Its columns this morning.
THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
The Virginian presents In full to-day
Mie message of the President to Con
jrress. It is a lengthy document, but
/.Interesting in all its details. The
/^resident gives a deal of attention to
V torelgn matters, especially to the boun
j^?ary dispute between Groat Britain
I" and the republic of Venezuela, the
Cuban troubles and the Turkish com?
plications. He alludes to the Vene
,,,s;uela,n dispute as having reached an
l&pacute state, such as demanded a defi
?gmte.statement of the intent and policy
$?i*t the United States as regarding the
controversy?and us such our atnbassa
?'? dor at London was Instructed
$?Jn.. July '?st to set forth ful
. Sy and distinctly the attitude of
gV^hls country to oppose a forcible In
p.creRse of any European power of Its
^territorial possession on this continent.
SiVThe answer of the British Government
|^ baa not yet been received but It Is
g>xpected shortly. On the Cuban ques?
tion the President remarks that what?
ever may be the traditional sympathy
.the people of this country with a
people struggling for greater freedom,
^bur plain duty is Jo observe In good
?jq.lth the recognized obligations of in?
ternational relationship?and as to
ihe Turkey troubles, he states that the
, byernmenl, far from relying upon
the, assurances of safety to Ameri
irw citizens' given by the Ottoman
iovernment, has sent Its warships as
far towards the points of actual dis?
turbance as It is possible for them to
jo, where they offer refuge to those
obliged to flee. He asserts that it is
Je right of European Governments to
Sforce such conduct on the part of the
Purks as will restrain fanatical bru
liity, auch' as has recently shocked
pearly half of the message Is oc
;?lcd I a presentation of the views of
President on our financial troubles
and the currency question. He treats
the subject as tt was expected lie would.
He stands forth firmly for a sound,
honest currency and presents the evils
which have come and which will fol?
low for. a lack of confidence In the hon?
esty of the Government's obligations,
springing forth from a debased coin?
age. This portion of the message will
necessarily command universal atten?
tion and Interest, as It opens up the
Issue squarely before Congress and the
people. He considers that there lurks
In the proposition of a free coinage of
silver a serious menace to our proper
ity. and an Insidious tempatlon to our
people to wander from the allegiance
they owe to public and private integ?
rity. It Is because, he remarks, that he
distrusts the good faitli and sincerity
of those who press this scheme that
he has Imperfectly, but with zeal, sub?
mitted his thoughts upon this momen?
tous subject, and that he cannot re
frnln from begging them to re-examine
their views and beliefs In the light of
patriotic (reason und familiar expe?
rience, and to weight again and again
the consequences of such legislation as
their efforts have Invited.

Mr. Cannon Is a representative man In
Iiis party's ranks, and Is entitled to be
heard, but is must be admitted that his
confession was unlooked for. The Sa?
