W. P. WALTON.
The president's message, which was
road lu Congress Tuesday, is eo very
long that hardly one in GO ot our readers
would wade through it if wo wero to
print, eo we will condense it ior the
t of those who want to know what
is in it without reading through its 15,-205
words. As usual the measure is characterized
by a strong sense of responsibility
and earnest patriotism, which will
make Mr. Cleveland's etate papers as notable
in history as they are strikingly
well-timed to the National needs and demands
of the day.
Alter calling attention to the reports of
the heads of departments, he omits
further reference to them except aa they
are related to tho main topics discussed
the finances and our foreign relatione.
The latter subject is discuswd at great
length. The Veuesuela boundary matter
is given prominence and tho statement
made that in July last tho British government
was inforrhed that thia country was
bound to protest against the enlargement
of the area of British Guiana in derogation
of the rights and against the will of
Venezuela. In other words the Monroe
doctrine would be atrictly enforced
against any country increasing its poeees
8ions in North America. The insurrection
in Hawaii and tho fact that its minister
here at his request had been recalled
are the only references to that country.
8ympathy is expressed for Cuba,
but Bhe is not yet in the attitude that
would justify tho U. S. in recognizing
her as a belligeront, our international du.
ties preventing it. The a83iuanco is
made that our missionaries shall be protected
at any cost and that this country
has demanded that a special American
commission shall investigate the whole
matter of massacres involving our citi
The president takes a firm stand on
the currency question. He treats the
subject exhaustively and suggests as a
remedy for present troubles the retirement
and cancellation of the greenbacks
and treasury notes, and the increase of
the circulation of the National banks, pro
posing to substitute long-time, low inter-tat
bonds for paper mmey and making
them a basis of circulation for the bankp,
conferring authority to issue notes to
the full amount of the par value of the
bonds deposited to secure it. When this
is done he says the silver bullion in the
treasury might be coined, thuB adding to
our silver coin about $178,000,000. He
would also empowerational banks with
authority to establish branches. His assertion
that no bonds have been sold to
supply deficits in the revenue, and that
tb'e'ooly occosion for the 6ale of bonds
was to replenish the gold reserve, maintain
the public faith and continue specie
payments, is in direct conflict with the
statement of leading republican politicians,
but it is true nevertheless. The
issue of $102,000,000 of bonds was
by the withdrawals of gold for foreign
shipment, speculation and hoarding
because of unwise legislation in the past
and the gold reserve is no better off now
than when the raid was first started and
the first issue of bonds was made. Since
1870, when the treasury resumed specie
payments, over $105,000,000 gold has been
withdrawn from tho treasury by means
of legal tender notfe, and of that vest
sura over $375,000,000 were withdrawn after
the passage of the Sherman eilvtr
law. The president shows beyond cavil
that the parity between gold and
10 to 1, can not bo maintained alone
by thia country and citeB our own experience
os proof that it can not. The message
cloaeB with the assurance to Congress
that while the remedies that he
suggests are prompted by his best judg.
raent, he is not bound to them but is pro,
pared to co-operate with the law-makers
in perfecting any other measure promising
thorough and practical relief, adding
"I will gladly labor with them in every
patriotic endeavor to further tho interests
and guard the welfare of our country,
whom in our respective places of duty
we hnve undertaken to servo."
The entire message shows the impress
patriotism and the desire for tho greatest
good to the greatest number. There is
no appeal to party or to partisanship, no
eflortto present striking phases, no Jingoism
and no play for a third terra. Boiled
down to the fewest number of words
the message stands for peace with honor,
sound money and the maintenance of
every public obligation.

Senator Hill, of New York, is deader
than Senator Blackburn; at least his demise
ia more noticed since ho reauhed

in succession, ho sought to replenish a
a depleted pursa by lecturing on "Liberty,"
but the people would have none of
it. Thoro was no enthusiasm over him
anywhere, his lecturo foil fht and worst
of all the door receipts were ridiculously
small. Under tho circumstances, there
was nothing left for the Senator but to

The president has nominated Kufus
W, Peckhara, of New York, to be associate
justico of the United States supreme
court, to succeed tho late Howell K.
Jackson. He is n resident of Albany,
and judge of the court of appeals of
New York. His name has been mentioned
frequently for tho oflice to which
he was nominated Tuesday. It is believed
hia nomination will be satifcfactory to
Senator Hill, whosa opposition was successful
in preventing the confirmation of
Meesrs, Hornblower and Wheeler reek-ham.
Tun committee at Frankfort has extended
n general invitation to the inau
gural ceremonies next Tuesday and as
the railroads offer a rate of one fare for
the round trip, a great many people, especially
republican people, will go. The
inaugural ball that night promises to
eclipse anything previously attempted in
the city under the hill, which will do everything
in its power to welcome the
coming and speed the parting guests.
Thomas Brackett Rekd haa great
cause for self congratulation. After four
years of retirement there from, he is

No man wbb ever more thoroughly endorsed
than he, despotic rulings, extravagant
appropriations and all.
Tqerb is a post-office in Letcher conn

from the election returns, is the only

that has such a name. In view of
all that has happened and is about! to
happen, we move that the name of the
office be changed to Bradley and may
God have mercy on it.
