The President's Message.
Tho President under the constitu
tion Is required from time to time, to
deliver to Congress his recommenda
tions as to the needs and condition of
the country. His message sent down
to Congress on the 3rd Is very full, en
couraging in some r. ppectP. doleful and
gruoM.ine in others. He congratulates
the country upon its mighty expansion
and prosperity, und then plunges i-ito
a historj of the Chinese troubles. The
storj re. da i;ke novel and it is only
the ti'sL chapter, us the problem is
still unsolved. He wants an army of
from GO 000 to 100,01 0 to keep the peaco
In the Philippines and for contin
gences. The credit of the country is
mighty, the treasury growing, and he
recommends a fractional reduotlon in
taxes. He gestures at true**, but does
cot expect Banna to take, the hint. As
a republican, speaking from a repub
lican standpoint the President Is in
high good humor and vaults into the
new century upon a high horse. The
paper is very business like and per
functory no line writing, with strong
ear mark.- of 'innocuous desuetude."
