THE NEW PRESIDENT.
<<>utiuuc<l from page '-'
deem it expedient to create iv commission
t o take under early consideration the re?
vision of <>ur coinage, banking ' and cur?
rency laws, and give them that exhaustive
careful and dispassionate examination
that their importance demand-, I sh ill
cordially ? oncur in such action. If such
power I- vested In the President, it is
my nurposo to appoint a commission of
prominent, well-informed citizens of
different parties, who will command pub?
lic confidence both on account, of their
ability and special fitness for the work.
Business experience and public training
may thus be combined and the patriotic
/cat of the friends of the country be so
directed that such u report will be made
as to receive the support of all parties
and our finances cease to be the subject
of mere partisan contention. The exper?
iment Is, at all events, worth a I rial,
am!, in my opinion, it can hut prove
beneficial to the entire country.
The question of international bimetal?
lism will have early and earnest atten?
tion. I*, will be my constant, endeavor to
secure it by co-operation with the other
great commercial powers of the world.
Until that condition is realized when the
parity between our gold and silver money
springs from and is supported by the re?
lative value of the two metals, the value
of the silver already coined, and of that
which may hereafter bo coined, must be
kept constantly at par with gold by every
resource at our command. The credit of
the Government, the integrity of its cur?
rency and the inviolability of its obliga?
tions must be preserved. This was the
commanding verdict of the people and it.
will no: bo unheeded. Economy is de?
manded in every branch of the Govern?
ment at all times, but especially in
periods like the present of depression in
business ami distress among the people.
The seve "est economy must be observed
in a public expenditures and extrava?
gance stopped wherever it .s found and
prevented wherever in the future it may
in- developed. If the revenues are to
remain as now the only relief that can
come must be from decreased expendi?
tures. Hut the present must not become
the permanent condition of the Govern?
ment. It'has been our uniform practice
to retire, not increase, our outstanding
obligations and this policy must again be
resumed and vigorously enforced. Our
revenues should always be large enough
to meet with ease anil promptness not
only our current needs and the principal
and interest of the public debt, hut to
make proper and liberal provision for
that most deserving body of public credi?
tors, the soldiers and sailors and the
widows and orphans who are the pen?
sioners of the United States.
The Government should not be permit?
ted to run behind, or increase its debt in
times like the present. Suitably to pro?
vide against this is the mandate of duty:
the certain and easy remedy for most of
our financial difficulties. A deficiency is
inevitable so long as the expenditures of
the Government exced its receipts, ft
can only be mot by moans of increased
revenue. While a large annual surplus of
revenue may invite waste and extrava?
gance. Inadequate revenue creates dis?
trust and undermines public credit
Neither should be encouraged.
Between more loans and more revenue
there ought to be but one opinion. We
should have more revenue and that with?
out delay and hindrance, or postpone?
ment. A surplus in the treasury created
by loans is not a permanent or safe ex?
periment. It will suffice while it lasts.
Hut it cannot last long while the outlays
of the Government are greater than its
receipts, as has been the case during the
past two years. Nor must it be forgotten
that however much loans may temporal'!
ly relieve the situation thoGorernment is
still indcbtid for the amount of the sur?
plus thus accrued which it must ultimate?
ly pay, while its ability to pay i* not
strengthened but weakened by a con?
tinued deficit. Loans are imperative in
great emergencies to preserve the Govern?
ment or its credit, but a failure to supply
i.led revenue in time of peace for the
maintenance of either has r.o justifica?
tion.
The best way for the Government to
maintain its credit is to pay as it goes?
not by resorting to loans but by keeping
out of debt?through an adequate income
secured by a system of taxation, external
or internal, or both. It is the settled
pollsy of the Government.' pursued from
the beginning and practiced by all par?
ties and administrations,to raise the bulk
of our revenue from taxes upon forogin
productions entering the United States
for sale and consumption, and avoiding,
for the most part, every form of direct
taxation, except in time of war. The
country is clearly opposed to any need?
less additions to the subjects of internal
taxation and is committed by its latest
popular utterance to the system of tariff
taxation. There can be no misunder?
standing either about, the principle upon
which this tariff taxation shall be levied.
Nothing has ever been made plainer at a
general election than the controlling
principle in the raising of revenue from
duties tin imports, and zealous care for
American interests and American labor.
The people have declared that stielt legis?
lation should be had as will give ample
protection and encouragement to the in?
dustries and the development of our
e inutry. It is therefore earnestly hoped
and expected that Congress will at the
earliest practicable moment enact revenue
legislation that shall be fair, reasonable,
conservative and just, and which, while
supplying sufficient revenue for public
purposes, w ill still lie signally beneficial
ami helpful to every section and every en
terprise of the people. To this policy we
lire nil, of^whatuver party, tlrmly bouiiu
by the voice of the people?a power vast
ly more potential than the expression of
any political platform. The paramount
duty ol Congress is to stop deficiencies
by the restoration of that protective
legislation which has always been the
firmest prop of the treasury. The pas
sage of such a law or laws would
strengthen the credit of the Government
both at home und abroad ami go far
towards stopping the drain upon the gold
reserve held for the redemption of our
curre-icy, whi"h has been heavy and well
nigh constant for several years.
Ill the revision of the tarilT especial at?
tention should be given to the re enact?
ment, and extension of the reciprocity
principle of the law of 1890, under which
so great a stimulus was given to our
foreign trade in new and advantageous
markets for our surplus agricultural and
manufactured products. The briel trial
given this legislation amply justitiell a
further experiment witlrfull power in the
making of commercial treaties, the end
in view always to bo the opening up of
new markets for the products of our
country by granting concessions to the
products of other lands that we need and
can not produce ourselves, and which do
not involve any loss of labor to our own
people, hut tend to increase their em?
ployment.
The depression for the past, four years
has fallen especially severely upon the
great body of toilers of the country, and
upon mine more than thu holders of
small farms. Agriculture has languished
and labor suffered. The revival of manu
facturlng will be n relief to both. No
portion, of our population is more devoted
to the institutions of free Government
nor mure loyal to their support, wdiile
none hears more cheerfully or fully its
proper share in the maintenance of the
Government, or Is better entitled to its
wise and liberal care and protection.
Legislation helpful to producers is bone
ficlal to all. The depressed condition of
industry on the farm ami in the mine and
factory has lessened the ability of the
people to meet the demands upon them,
and they rightfully expect, that not onlv
a system of re von no shall be established
that will secure tin? largest income
with the leasl burden, but that, every
moans will be taken to decrease rather
than increase our public expenditures.
Business conditions are rot the most
promising. It will take time to restore
the prosperity of former years. If we
c.iunot promptly attain it we can reso?
lutely turn our faces in that direction
and aid its return by friendly 'legislation.
However troublesome the situation may
appear, Congress will not. I am sure he
foMlltl kicking in disposition or ability to
relieve it as far as legislation can do so.
The restoration of confidence and the re?
vival of business which men of all parlies
so much desire depend more largely
upon the pre nipt, energetic and intelli?
gent tuition of Congress than upon any
other single agency nlTccting the situa?
tion.
It Is inspiring, too, to remember that
no great emergency in the one hundred
ami eight years ot our event l ul lite has
ever arisen that has not been met with
wisdom and courage by the American
people, wit h fidelity to their best interests
and highest destinies and the honor of
the American name. These years of
glorious history have exalted mankind
ami advanced the cause of freedom
throughout the world and Immeasurably
strengthened the precious free institll
tiotis which we enjoy. The people love
and will sustain these institutions. The
great essential to our happiness and pros?
perity is that we adhere to the principles
upon which the Government was estab?
lished and Insist upon their faitful obser?
vance. Equality of rights must prevail
and our laws be always and everywhere
respected and obeyed. We may have fail?
ed in the discharge of our full duty as
citizens of the great republic, but it. is
consoling and encouraging to realize that
free speech, a free press, free thought,
free schools ami the free and unmolested
right of religious liberty and worship and
free and fair elections are dearer and
more universally enjoyed to-day than
ever before. These guarantees must be
sacredly preserved and wisely strength
ened. The constituted authorities must
be cheerfully and vigorously upheld.
Lynching* must not be tolerated in a
great and civilized country like the
United States: courts?not mobs?must
execute the penalties of the law. The
preservation of public order, tie- right of
discussion, the integrity of courts, and
the orderly administration of justice
must continue forever the rock of safety
upon which the Government securely
rasl s.
Oue of the results of the late election
in which we rejoice is that the citizens of
the United States are both law respect
ing and law abiding people, not easily
swerved from the part of patriotism and
honor. This accord with tlu- genius of
our instituitions but emphasizes the ad?
vantages of inculcating even more honor
for the future. Immunity should lie
granted to no one who violates the laws,
whether individuals, corporations or
communities, and as the constitution Im?
poses upon the President the duty of both
its own execution and of the statutes en?
acted in pursuance of its prorisions, I
.shall endeavor carefully to carry them
into effect. The declaration of the party
now restored to power ha-, been in the
past that of "opposition to all combina?
tions of enpita! organized in trusts nr
elsewhere, to control arbitrarily the con?
dition of trade among our citizens,'" and
it has supported "such legislation ns
wdll prevent the execution of all schemes
to oppress the people by undue charges
on their supplies or by unjust rates for
the transportation of their products to
market." This purpose will be steadily
pursued both by the enforcement of the
laws now in existence and the recommen?
dation and support of such new stat utes
as may he necessary to carry it into effect.
(mr naturalization and immigration
laws should be further improved to the
constant promotion of n safer, a better
and a higher citizenship. A grave peril
to the republic would be a citizenship
too ignorant to understand or too vicious
to appreciate, the greal value and bene?
ficence of our institutions and laws?and
against, all who come here to wir upon
them our gates mils) be promptly and
tightly closed. Nor must we be unmind
ful of the need of improvement among
nur citizens,bnt with the zeal of our fore?
fathers encourage the spread of knowl?
edge and free education. Illiteracy must
be banished from the land, if we shall
attain that high destiny as the forecast of
the enlightened nation of the world
which under a Providence we ought to
achieve.
Reforms in civil service must go on.
Hut the chnnges should be real and genu?
ine, not perfunctory or prompted ' by a
zeal in behalf of any party simply because
it happens to be in power. As a member
of Congress I voted and spoke, in favor
of the present law. and 1 shall attempt
its enforcement'in the spirit in which it
was enacted. The purpose in view was
to secure the most efficient service of the
best men who wouhl accept appointment
nnilcr the. Government, retaining faithful
ami devoted public servants in office, but
1 shielding none, under the authority of
any rule or CU3tom, who an- inefficient,
incompetent or uuworthy. The b?st In?
terests of the country demand this, and
the people heartily approve the law
wherever and whenever it lias been thus
administered.
Congress should give prompt atten?
tion to the restoration of our American
merchant marine, once the pride of the
sens in all the great ocean highways of
commerce. To my mind few more impor?
tant subjects so imperatively demand an
intelligent consideration. The United
States has progressed with marvelous
rapidity in every Held of enterprise and
endeavor until we have become foremost
in nearly all the great lines of inland
trade, commerce aud industry. Yet,
while this is true, our American mer?
chant marine has been steadily declining
until it is now lower both in the percent?
age of tonnage and the number of vessels
employed than it was prior to the civil
war. Commendable progress has beeu
made of late years in the uphul'ding of
the American navy, we must supplement
these elTorts by providing as a proper
consort for it a merchant marine amply
sufficient for our own carrying trade to
foreign countries The question is one
that appeals to both our business necessi?
ties and the patriotic aspirations of a
great people.
It has been the policy of the United
States since the foundation of the Gov?
ernment to cultivate relations of peace
and amity with ,-.11 the nations of the
world, and this accords with my concep?
tion of our duty. It will be our aim to
pursue a firm and dignified loreign pol?
icy which shall lie just, impartial, ever
watchful of our national honor and al?
ways insisting upon the enforcement of
the lawful rights of American citizens
everywhere. Wo want no wars of con?
quest; we must avoid the temptation of
territorial aggression. War should never
bo entered upon until every agency of
peace has failed: pence is preferable to
war in almost every contingency. Arbi?
tration is the true method of settlement
of international as well as local or indi?
vidual differences. It. was recognized as
the best means of adjustment of differ?
ences between employers and em (doves
by the Forty-ninth Congress, ISiMl.and its
application wa9 extended to our diplo?
matic relations by the unanimous concur?
rence of the Senate and House of the
Fifty-fifth Congress in |S!Mt. The latter
resolution was accepted as the basis of
negotiations with us by the Ur'tish'house
of commons in 180?! and upon our invita?
tion a treaty of arbitration Itctireon the
United States and Great Britain was
signed at Washington, ami transmitted
to the Senate for its ratification, '?in
January last. Since this treaty is (dear?
ly the result of our own initiative; since
it has been recognized as the leading
feature of our foreign policy throughout
our entire national history?the adjust
mcnt of difficulties by judicial methods
rather than by force of arms presents
to the world the glorious example of rea?
son and peace, not passion and war. con?
trolling the relations between two of tin
greatest nations of the world, an exam?
ple certain to be followed by others, I
respectfully urge the earliest action of
the Senate thereon, not- merely as a mat?
ter of policy, but as a duty to mankind.
The importance and moral influence of
i lie ratification of such a treaty can
hardly lie over estimated in the cause of
advancing civilization. It may well en?
gage the best thoughts of the statesmen
and people of every country, anil I cannot
but consider it fortunate that it was re?
served to the United States to have the
leadership in so grand a work.
It has been the uniform practice of
each President to avoid as fur as possible
the convening of Congress in extraordi?
nary session. It is tin example which un?
der ordinary circumstances and in the
absence of a public necessity, is to be
commended.
But a failure to convene the represen?
tatives of the people in Congress in extra
session when it involves neglect of a
public duty, places tin- responsibility of
such neglect upon the executive himself.
The condition of the public treasury, as
has been Indicated, demands the immedi?
ate consideration of Congress. It alone
has the power to provide revenues^for the
Government. Not to convene it under
such circumstances I can view in no
other sense than the neglect of a plain
duty. I do not sympathize with the sen?
timent that Congress in session is dan?
gerous to cur general business interests.
Its members arc the agents of tin- people
and their presence at the seat of Govern?
ment in tho execution of the sovereign
will should not operate as an Injury but.
a benefit. There could be no better time
to put the Government upon a sound
financial and economic basis than now
The people haw only recently voted that
this should be done, and nothing is more
binding upon the agents of their will
than the obligation of immediate action.
It has always seemed to me that the post
ponement of the meeting of Congress un?
til more than a year after it lias been
chosen deprived Congress tco often of
tho inspiration of the popular will and
the country of the corresponding bene?
fits/ It is evident,therefore, that to pos ?
pone action in the presence of so great a
necessity would be unwise on the part of
the executive bcciusc unjust to the in?
terests of the people. Our actions now
will be freer from mere partisan eon -:
eration than if the question of tarilf re?
vision was postponed until the regular
session of Congress. We art- nearly i wo
years from a (Congressional 'election and
politics can not so 'greatly distract us as
if such contest was Immediately pend?
ing. We can approach the problem
calmly and patriotically without fearing
its effect up li an early election. Our
fellow citizens who may disagree with
us upon the character of the legislation
prefer to have the question settled now,
even against'their preconceived views
anil perhaps settled reasonably, as 1 trust
ami believe it will he, as to insure great
permanence?than to have further un?
certainty menacing the varied busine? -
interests of tin- United States. Again,
whatever action Congress may take will
be given a fair opportunity for trial bo
fore the people are called to pass judg?
ment upon it, and this I consider a great
essential to the rightful and lasting set?
tlement of the question. In view of
these considerations I shall deem it my
duty as President to convene Congress in
extraordinary session Monday, March, 15,
i8i?;.
In conclusion I congratulate the conn
try upon the fraternal spirit of the peo?
ple and the manifestations of good will
everywhere so apparent. The recent elec?
tion not only most fortunately demon
stratcd the obliteration of sectional or
geographical lines, but ti some extent
also the prejudices which f ir years have
distracted our councils an l marred our
true greatness as a tuition. The triumph
of the people, whose verdict is carried
into effect to day, is not the triumph? of

li-JE BEAUTY OF A SHIP.
~. stoTce'n Fascinating Description of a
Vchm-I Untier Sail.
Mrs. Stowe, in "Tho Pearl of Orr's
Island," gives this fascinating descrip?
tion of :\ shi]) under sail: "What is
there belonging to this workaday world
of onrs that has such a fund of never
failing poetry und grace as a ship? A
ship is n beauty and a mystery wher?
ever we see it. Its whito wings touch
tho regions of tho unknown and tho
imaginative. They seem to us full of
the odors of quaint, strange, foreign
shores, where life, we fondly dream,
moves in brighter currents than the
muddy, tranquil tides of every day.
Who that sc,-s one bound outward, with
her white, breasts swelling and heaving,
as if with a reaching expectancy, dues
not feel his own heart swell with 11
longing impulse to go with her to the
faroff shores? Even at dingy, crowded
wharfs, amid tho Ftir mid tumult of
great cities, the coming in of a ship is
an event that never can lose its inter?
est. But on these romantic shores of
Maine, where all is so wild and fttill
and the blue sea lies embraced in the
arms of dark, solitary forests, the sud?
den incoming of a ship from a distant
voyage is a sort of romance. Who that
has stood by tho blue waiters of Middle
bay, engirdled as it is by green slopes
of farming land, interchanged hero and
there with heavy billows of forest trees
or rocky, pino crowned promontories,
has not felt that sense of seclusion and
solitude which is so delightful? Ami
then what a wonder! There comes a
6hip from China, drifting in like a
white cloud, the gallant creature I How
the waters hiss and foam before her!
With what 11 great, freo, generous plush
eIio throws out her anchors, an it sha
Paid 11 cheerful 'Well done!' to some
glorious work accomplished! Thovory
lifo and spirit of strange, romantic
lands come with her. Suggestions of
Bandalwood am! .-pice breathe throngh
the pine woods. She is an oriental
queen, with hands full of mystical gilts.
'All her garments smell of myrrh and
cassia, out of the ivory palaces, where?
by they have made her glad.' No won?
der men have loved ships like birds and
that there have been found brave, rough
hearts that in fatal wrecks chose rather
to go down with their ocean lovo than
to leave her in the last throes of her
death agony."
The greatest of all luxuries in central
Africa is salt. To say that 11 man eats
salt with bis victuals is thosaine as say?
