TAFTS FIRST MESSAGE.
Crgcs Immediate Consideration of
Tuft's First Message.
Washington. March 16.?President
Tuft's message was received by the
senate and house today with demon
strations In both bodies. The mes
sage was as follows:
"To the Semite and House of Repre
"1 have convened the congress In
this extra session in order to (?nable
it to give Immediate consideration to
'he revision of the Dingley tariff act.
Conditions affecting production, man
/ufaeturo and business generally have
so Changed In the 1U years as to ro
quire a readjustment and revision of
the Import duties Imposed by thai net.
Wore than this, the present tariff act.
with tho othor sourcoB of government
revenue, does not furnish income en
ough to pay tho authorized expendit
ures. Dy Juno 1 next excess of ex
penses ovor receipts for tho current
?fiscal year will equal $1.000.000.000.
"Tho successful party In the late
election Is pledged to a revision of the
tariff. Tho country and the business
community, especially, expect It.
The prospect of a change In tho ratos
of Import duties always causes a sus
pension or halt In business of tho
uncertainty as to the changes to ho
made and their effect. It is. there
fore, of the highest importance that
the new bill bo agreed upon and pass
ed With as much Speed as possible
consistent With its due and thorough
consideration. For these reasons i
have deemed the present to he an
extraordinary occasion, within the
meaning of the constitution, justify
ing, and requiring tho calling of an
extra session. .

people will be willing to contribute
their share of the $200 asked of Lau

hoped that some one who remembers
how our mothers and sisters denied
themselves and worked, making cloth

they managed farms and attended to
business while the men and boys wero
at the front, will go around and give
our people a chance to contribute to
this cause. I would suggest Instead
of a marble shaft, at $1.500, to erect
three cottages for orphans, one at
Connie Maxwell, one at Epworth, and
one at Thornwell, at $f.,000 each. Who
