The total value of our foreign trade (experts
and manufactures) during the last tlscnl yeai
was 11,657,880,041. an incrense of 1123,283,004 ever
the previous fiscal year. The avcrage annual
value of our Imports and experts of merchan
dise for the ten fiscal years prier te 1891 was
tL 457,322,019. It will be observed that our for
eign trade for 1692 exceeded this annual aver
age value by MOO.358,591, an increase of 27.47 per
cent- The slgnltlcanee and value of this in

experts for 1KB with the annual average for the

1265,218,611, or of 34.65 per cent -The value of
our Imports of merchandise for 1892,.whlch was
1829 402,462, also exceeded the annual average

During the. fiscal year 1892 the value of Imports
free of duty amounted te 1457,099 658, the largest
aggregate In the history of our commerce. The
value of the imports of merchandise entered
free of duty In 1893 was 55.35 per cent of the
total value of Imports, as compared with 43.35
per cent in 1891, and 83.00 per cent In 1890.

amount of deposits In savings banks was 81,6-3,-079,719.
It Is estimated that 90 per cent of these
deposits represent the savings of wage earners.
The bank clearances for nine months ending
September 30, 1891, amounted te W,0I9,S90,8C8.
Fer the same months In 1692 they amounted te

Concerning the republican policy of protec
tion he says;
'i believe that the protective system, which
has new for something mere than thirty years
continuously prevailed in our legislation, has
been a mighty Instrument for the development
of our national wealth and a most powerful
agency In protecting he htfmrs of our working
men from thclnvaalen of want I have felt a
most .solicitous interest te prcserve te our
working people rates of wages that would net
only give aatly bread but supply a comfortable
margin for these home attractions and family
comforts and enjoyments without which life is
neither hopeful nor sweet They are American
cltlxensa part of the great people for whom
nnr constitution and government were framed
and Instituted and It can net be a perversion
of that constitution te e legislate as te pro pre
serve In their homes the comfort Independence,
loyalty and sense of interest In the government
which are essential te geed cltUcnshlp in
peace and which will bring this stalwart
throng, as in 1861, te the defense of the flog
when It la assailed. It Is net my purpose te re
new here the argument in favor of a protective
tariff. The result of the recent election must be
accepted aa havlpg Introduced a new policy.
We inus't assume that the present tariff, con cen con
strueted upon the lncs of protection, Is te be
repealed, and that there Is te be substituted for
it a tariff law constructed solely with reference
te' revenue: that no duty la te be higher be
cause the increase will keep open en American
mill eftCpupthewage,s6f an American work
man, but In every case such a rate of duty is te
be ,imnofled as will ibrlng the treasury of the
United States the largest returns of revenue.
Tbe contention has net been between schedules,
but'between principles, and It would be offen
sive te suggest that the prevailing party will
net carry into legislation the principles ad
vocated by it and, Ihe pledges given te
the people. The tariff bills passed by the
house of representatives at the last session
were, as is suppesed,even in the opinion of their
promoters, Inadequate nnd Justlned only by
the fact that the senate and house of repre
sentatives were net In accord and that a gen
eral revision could net, therefore, be under
taken. I recommend that the whole subject of
tariff revision be left te the Incoming congress.
It is a matter of regret that this work must he
delayed for at least three months; ,for,the
threat of great tariff changes Introduces s$
much uncertainty that an amount net. easily
estimated of business inaction and of dimin
ished production will necessarily result It is
possible, also, that this uncertainty may result
in decreased revenues from customs duties, for
cur merchant will make cautious orders for
foreign goods in view e the prospect of tariff
reductions and the uncertainty as te when It
will take effect
"These who have advecated a protcctjve
- tariff can well afford te havftlr disastrous
forecasts of a change of polley disappointed.
If a system of customs duties can be. framed
that will set the fdle wheels and looms of Ku

Referring te the reports of the heads of the
Beyeral executive departments' submitted with
the message, the president notes the fact that
"public revenues amounting te 11,414,079,292.28
have been collected and disbursed without less
from misappropriation, without a single defal
cation of such Importance as te attract the pub
lic attention, and at a diminished per cent of
cost for collection."
Our relations with ether nations nre new un
disturbed by any serious controversy. The com
plicated and threatening differences with Ger
many and England 'relating te Samoan af
fairs, with England In relation te the seal
fisheries in the Ilchring sea and with Chill
growing out of the Baltimore affair, have been
adjusted. There have been ncgotieted and con
cluded, under Section 3 of the tarrlff law, com
mercial agreements relating te reciprocal trade
with the following countries Brazil, Domin
ican nepublic, Spain for Cuba and Puerto Rice,
Guatemala, Salvader, the German empire,
Great Britain for certain West Indian colonies
and British Guiana, Nicaragua, Honduras nnd
Austre-Hungary. The total increase In the
value of experts te all countries with which
we have reciprocity eKrccments has been
120,762.621. This Increase is chiefly in
wheat flour, meat enu eairy preuuem unu
in manufactures of Iren end Btcel And lumber.
In regard te the Behringsea matter he recom
mends that power be given te the president by
proclamation, te prohibit the taking of seals In
the North Pacific by American vessels In case
either as the result of the findings of the tribun
al of arbitration or otherwise the restraints can
be applied te the.vessels of all countries. The
case of the United States for the tribunal of ar
bitration has been .prepared with great care
and Industry by Hen. Jehn W. Fester end the
counsel who represent this government, express
conddence that a result substantially establish
ing our claim and preserving this great indus
try for the benefit of all nations will be at
tained. The president does net think an acceptable
reciprocity treaty with Canada can new be
attained, nnd suggests retaliation for com
mercial discrimination en the part of the Do
A history of the Chilian controversy is given,
the president draws the lessen that while we
should deal in a liberal spirit with neighboring
republics, we must Insist upon a Just responsi
bility for any injuries Inflicted upon our official
representatives or.upen our citizens This In
sistence, kindly nnd Justly, but firmly, made,
will, I believe, promote peace and mutual re
spect The settlement of the Italian imbroglio,
In a manner honerablo te the United States, Is
noted with satisfaction, and our foreign rela
tiens In general treated at length.
With reference te the Nicaragua enterprise
the president says:
"I rep'-at with great earnestness the recom
mendation that I have made mention in previous
messages te the Inadequate support given the
American company engaged In the construction
of the Nicaragua ship canal. It is Impossible
te overstate the value from every standpoint of
this great enterprise and I hope there may be
time, even In this congress, te give te it en ta
pe .us that will Insure the early completion of
the canal and secure te the United States Its
proper relations te It when completed.
With the financial operations of the govern
ment the message deals elaborately. The mere
Important facta are here presented:
"The report of the secretory of the treasury
will attract special Interest in view of the many
misleading statements that bae been made as
te the state of the publte revenues. Three pro pre
llmlmry facts should net only be stated but
emphasized, before looking into details- First
that the publie debt has been rcduced since

amount ofweTk flohe. the last year has been
the greatest in the history of the office. I be
lieve that the organization of the office is effi
cient and that the work has been dene with
fidelity The passage of what Is known as the
disability bill has, as was foreseen, very large
ly increased the annual disbursements te the
disabled veterans of the civil war. The esti
mate for this flBcal year was 1144,956,000,
and that amount was appropriated. A
deficiency amounting te 110,062,621 must
be provided for at this session. The
estimate for pensions for the fiscal year ending
June 20, net, Is 1165,000,000. The commissioner
of pensions believes that if the present legisla
tien ana metneas are maintained ana luriuer
additions te the tiensien laws are net made, the
maximum expenditure for pensions will be
reached June 80, 1894, add will be at the highest
point 1188,000,000 per annum. I adhere te the
view expressed In previous messages that the
care of the disabled soldiers of the wer of the
rebolllen Is a matter of national concern and
duty. Perhaps the emotion cools sooner than
that of gratitude, but I can net believe that this
process has yet reached a point with our peo
ple that would sustain the policy of remitting
the care of these disabled veterans te the Inad
equate agencies provided by local laws."
Quarantine regulations and the restriction of
Immigration get attention, as follews:
"The subjeet of quarantine regulations, In
spection and control wsb brought suddenly te
my attention by the arrival at our ports In Au
gust last of vessels Infected with cholera.
Quarantlne regulations should be uniform
at all our perta. Under the constitution
they ero plainly within the exclusive
federal Jurisdiction" when and se far as
congress shall legislate, in my opinion,
the whole subject should be token into national
control and adequate power given te tne execu
tive te protect our peeple against plague In
vasions. On the 1st of September last, I ap
proved regulations establishing a twenty-day
quarantine for all vessels bringing Immigrants
from foreign ports. T,hls order will be con
tinued In force Seme let sand suffering have
resulted te pnssengets. but a due care of the
homes of our people Justifies In such enscs the
utmost precaution. There Is danger that with
the coming of spring, cholera will again uppcar
end a liberal appropriation Bheuld be made at
this season te enable our quarantlne nnd pert
officers te exclude the deadly plague.
"But the most careful and stringent quaran
tine regulation may net be sufficient absolutely
te exclude the disease. The progress of medi
cal and sanitary science has been such, how
ever, that if approved precautions are taken at
ence te put all of our cities and towns In the
best sanitary condition end a prevision Is made
for Isolating nny sporadic cases and for a thor ther thor
eagh disinfectien, an epidemic can, I am sure,
be nvelded. This work appertains te the local
authorities, and their responsibility end the
penalty will be appalling If It Is neglected or
"We are peculiarly subject In our great
ports te the spread of infectious diseases by
reason of the fact that unrestricted immigra
tien brings te us out of European cities in tne
overcrowded steerages of 'great steamships a
large number of persons whose surroundings
make them the easy victims of the plague.
This consideration, as well as these affecting
the political, moral and Industrial Interests of
our country lead me te renew the suggestion
that admission te epr country and te the high
privileges of Its citizenship should be mere re
stricted end mere careful. We have, I think, a
right and ewe a duty te our people, and espe
cially te our working people, net only te keep
out the vicious, the Ignorant, the civil disturber,
the pauper and contract laborer, dui te cnecu
the tee grtat flew of immigration new coming

Reform in the election methods is again urged
In the following c arnest -erds:
"I hae In each of the three annual messages
which it has been my duty e submit te con
gress called attention te the evils and dangers
connected with our election methods and prac
tices as they are related te the choice of officers
of the national government In my last annual
message I endeavored te Invoke serious atten
tion te the evils of unfair apportionments for
congress. I can net close this message with
out again calling attention te these grave and
threatening evils. 1 had hoped that It was pos
sible te secure a non-partisan Inquiry bv mesns
of a commission, into eils the existence of
which is known te all, and that out of this
might grew legislation from which all thought
of partisan advantage should be eliminated
and only the higher thought appear of main
taining the freedom and purity of the ballet
and the equality of the elector without the
guaranty of which the government could
never have been formed, and without
the continuance of which It can net con
tinue te exist In peace and prosperity. It Is
time that mutual charges of unfairness and
fraud between the great parties should cease,
and that the sincerity of these who profess a
dMlr for nure and honest elections should be
brought te the test of their willingness te free
our legislation and our election methods from
everything that tends te impair the publie con
fidence In the announced result Is It net time
that we should ceme together upon the high
plane of patriotism while we devise methods
