Senator Gorman's desk was banked up

head. One bore tbe inscription i "Oh,
such a day so fought, so followed and so
lairly won, came not till now to decorate
the times since Casar's fortune." An
other design ornamenting this particular
desk was, "Unserved for A. P. 0.. 1887."
A third rooster of flowers decorated the

Arthur's annual message was transmit

troversy, despite the closeness of tbo vote,

but pooplo awaited the result patlontly and

those relating to distilled spirits., If the.e

afford a surplus large enough to permit such
tariff reduotion as may seem ad lsahle when
the results of recent revenue laws and com
mercial treaties shall have shown In what
quarters these reductions can be most Judi
ciously effected. . .
The lYesldont says, although" he Is fully
sensible to the objuctlons to .be made to the
appointment of a Commission to ascertiilQ
the must effective means for Increasing our
foreign trade, still he believes this to be the
most speedy and efficient method.' He In

In the hands of foreigners. , .
' On the subject of a basis for Nntlonal bank
circulation be says: Three percent, bonds of
the Government to an amount of more than
a hundred million have since my lat annual
message been redeemed by treasury bonds;
tbe Issue still outstanding amounts to a lit
tle over two bun lred .tillona, about one
fourth of which will be retired tbrongb tbe
operations of the sink ng fund during tbe
coming years. As tuese bonds still oontlnue
tbe chief basis tor tbo circulation of Na
tional banks, the question bow to avert the
contraction of tbe currency caused by their
retirement is one of constantly increasing
importance. It seems to be generally cou
ceded that tbo law governing this matter ex
acts from tbe banks excessive security : that
upon tbeir present bond depoaito a largur
circulation than is now allowed may bo
granted with safety. I hope tbe bid which
f leased tbe Senate laat session permitting tho
ssue of notes equal to the full value of tbe
deposited bonds will commend Itself to tbo
consideration of tho House oflj Representa
tives. COAST DKVEKSitg.
Concerning tbe seaboard defenses for our
cities, ret-vuimended by the beeretary of
War, he says: "The time has now come
when such defenses can be prepared with
confidence that they will not prove abor
tive. When the possible result of delay In
making such preparation is seriously con
sidered, the delay seems Inexcusable, tor
tue most Important cities, those whose de
struction or capture would be a National hu
miliation, adequute defenses, inclusive of
guns, may be made by the gradual .expendl- ,
ture of ,Ouo,000, a sum much less than a
victorious enemy could levy as a contribu
tion. The appropriation of about one-tenth
of that amount is assed to begin the work,
and I concur with tne Secretary of War In
urging Hi at it be granted. .
He renews the recommendation contained
In his special message to the last Congress,
favonug the establishment ot two Govern
ment lactones one lor the army and one
for the uavy for tho manu.ac-ture of heavy
steel cannon, and urges Congress to act, so
aa to enable the Government to construct its
own ordnance on Its own territory, and pro
vide tbe armaments demanded by consider
ations of National salety aud honor.
Concerning the reconstruction ol the Navy
he says: "In tuts, the last of the stated
mesxages I shall have the Honor to transmit
to Comcress, I ean not too strongly urge on
Its attention the dutv at rrxiorini tiio

The President devotes much apace to the
consideration of tue policy of tue Govern
ment rewarding the extension of our foreign
trade. Tue mam conditions of the problem
are thus stated. "Wo are a people

"Moonahlning-" as a Business No Longer
NiSHYiix, Tknn December 1.
Judge Key of the United States District
Court has fined a number of illicit dls'
tillers In the term just closed. Several
"Moonshiners" have been lined and sent
to prison for thirty days. It la very
noticeable that the rigorous warfare
Inaugurated against "moonshiners" sev
eral years ago has suppressed much of
the Illegal traffic, and some of the most
notorious dUtlllers have given up . the
business forever. Five or six years
ago there were at every term of tho
Court several hundred cases on the
docket, bat the number of trials now
la very small and Is constantly decreas
ing. One of the most celebrated dis
tillers of other days Is now ln the revenue
service, and does excellent work lor the
Alarmed Sugar Planters.
New Ot leans, La., December 1. Su

It is estimated that the decrease of the
public debt for November will not be
much over $1,000,000. Decrease is due
to reduction ln revenues for the month

The Treasury Department purchased
100,000 ounces of silver for delivery at
the Philadelphia mint, thus completing
tho monthly minimum amount of 2,000,

Tho Secretary of tho Treasury has sub
tallied the action of tho local inspectors
