Record to be Issued to-morrow. The figures of tho appropriations woro glvon In The Bun on Monday Inst. In addition Mr. Cannon will say; "No two joars of our national history slnco tho closo of the civil war have been so big with great ovonts or havo noon such masterful treatment of tho samo ns tho two years cov orcd by tho first half of William McKlnley's Administration and by tho FUty-flfth Con gress. Administration nnd legislation havo been both wtso and efficient. "Tho history of tho country shows that In tlmo of wnr. when publlo attention is dlreotod chiefly to military mattors. thu expenditures of the Government nro apt to do without proper attention, nnd. what Is of far greater conse quence, enterprising Individuals or Intorests nttompt to utlllzo publlo sentlmont nnd com mit tho Government to expenditures from tho Treasury to carry out polloles meeting with public favor without properly safeguarding the machinery necessary tonccompllsh thoond in vlow. But. the Congress that hu justoxplrod has been peculiarly fortunate: first. In having boon nblo to maintnln n closo scrutiny of ap propriations: nnd, second, tn having success fully reslstod projocts prompted by solflsh Intorests thnt were claimed to bo proper for carrying out public sontlment, but which would. In reality, havo dofeated the realization of such sentlmont, or would ho nt lonst de layed tho construction of great works nocos sary for tho national welfare. "Acaso In point wns tho proposition to con struct the Nicaragua Canal. Thore Is an al most universal publlo sentlmont demanding tho construction of an Isthmian canal that will unlto the waters of tho Atlantlo and tho Pacific oceans. Tho publlo dofenoe, on tho ono hand, and tho Interestsof thecommerceof the United Btatesand of the world, on the othor, domand such n canal. A bill wns proposed and passed bj tho Senate committing the United States to the construction of tho Nicaragua Canal and the practical acquirement, at a cost or S3.00O. 000. of nn nllegod concession from Nicaragua and Costa Hlca to tho MarltlmeCanal Company for the construction thoreof. whlloln truth and fact. If said concession Ins not already ex pired, It will expire In October next : and even If It had not expired tho United States could not afford to construct a cannl under its pro vlslons. ' If tho Senate bill or nny measure proposed had been enacted, the United States would havo paid Jfi.oOOOOO for a worthless conces sion nnd would have been committed bylaw to the construction ofncnnal along tho Nica ragua route, and under such conditions It would havo been compelled, before wo throw n spadeful of earth or In any way began actual construction, to have acquired tiy treaty from Nicaragua and Costa BIcn the torrltory where on to construct tho canal and tho rltzht to con structlt. Such legislation would havo delayed and embarrassed the construction of an Isth mian canal Tho United States cannot afford to enter upon this great work until It has ac quired by treaty a zone of territory whoreon to construct tho same. . . ... " Fortunately tho House of Kopresentntivos resisted tho enactment of the proposed leglsln tlonnud tho contest between tho Senate and tho House resulted finally In tho only practical provision lwsslble. viz , the appropriation of Sl.OOO.OOOtoennblo tho President to mako u full and complete Investigation of the Isthmus, with a vlow to the futuro construction of it ....nil inrrtac th.t enmn nnrf Iclltlirlv f hn PnnnmfL nnd Nicaragua routes and toieport to Congress the result, with his recommendations In tho premises. In addition to this, the President already has the solo iowerto negotiate treaties for a site forsnllcnnal, which treaties must bo mado nnd ratified before tho Government cau begin construction. . ,.,,, "There are many other matters of legisla tion and of ralluro to legislate and appropriate to which I might refer, but for foar of making this statement too long I forbear. Some gen eral observations In other linos, however, per mit me to submit: " During the wholo of the four 7oars covered by Mr Cleveland's second Administration tho material and Industrial condition of the coun try was calamitous, nnd lut contemplation does not bring satisfaction to any American citizen. But tho rifty-flfth Conirress. beginning with the Administration of William McKlnley. and promptly called In extraordinary sesslon.as promptly enacted legislation which has yielded tho additional revenues needed to pay tho ordi nary oxponsos of tho Government, and has at tho samo tlmo protected American labor With the enactment of thnt legislation hopo and confidence struck hands, nnd the condition of the whole country Improved and has con tinued to improvo from that tlmo to the pres ent. Labor Is now unlvorsnlly employed with Increasing wage, and with Biich employment tho moans aro supplied forlncreased consump- " In addition, without taklngtlme to discuss In detail tho causes that led thereto. Congress declared war against Spain: nnd the prompt and decisive succosses of the army and navy upon land ond sea havo never been equalled nnywhoro In history. Tho great expenditures rendered necessary by tho war required the enactment of additional revenue legislation, nnd that legislation Is now bringing Into our Treasury nn additional $100,000,000 por annum . . . " 1 ho vast Increase of tho navy and tho crea tion of an nrmy of a quarter of a million men. togethor with tho Increaso of taxation, havo not In any appreciable degroo checked our Industrial advance, which begnn eolneldentally with tho Incoming of the present Administra tion and the Hfty-flfth Congress. " As a logical sequoneo of war, outlying ter ritories formerly belonging to Spain have by tho treaty of peace nnd by tho occupation of our army and navy coino under the jurisdic tion of tho United States, and a military gov ernment under tho direction of the President nnd In conformity with the ponce treaty Is es tablished In thoso outlying territories and will continue until Congress In the future shall provide by legislation such civil government ns tho interestsof the United States and tho condition nnd well bolng of tho peoplo therein mny demnnd. " The Administration of William McKlnley nnd the I'lftj -fifth Congress have grappled successfully and wiely with nil quoKloas of penco and war that they havo boon called upon to consider. And In passing lot mo call atten tion lo our great success In bceurlngthoudjust mont of tho largo Indebtedness due to tho Government from the Pacific railroads Under tho Administration of Mr Cleveland, lu the thon depressed condition of tho country, the large indebtedness duo from those railroads was regarded as practically lost, and we would havo boon glad to huvo secured Its settle ment by the payment of one-half of it. But, with the return of prosperity, so wisoly cromoted by sound legislation nnd adminis tration, tho Indebtedness of the Union Pacific, amounting In round numbers to $50,000,000, has been collected und paid into the Treasury, wbllo tho principal of the Indebtedness nt tho Kansas Pacific, amounting to over $1,000,000, has also been collected und paid Into the Treas ury Under legislation onneted by tho second session of tho Congress just expired, the Ad ministration has settled and secured tho wholo of tho debt, both principal and Interest, due from tho Central Pacific, likewise amounting. In loiind numbers, to $.rtfi,000,0(X), If any one hnd predi'ted ntthe beginning of this Admin istration that It would bo possible to collect and steuro these great sums to tho United Stales ho would have bren laughed at as a pi ophni .--.hounding in neither inspiration nor wisdom "It Isnot my i-'irnoso now to discuss ques tions connected with legislation horeufter to bo enacted I prefer rather t await the loglo of events and the full Informally..

At this, with a groan of dlseontont, the peoplo fell back. An at tempt was made to lepoat the attack, and sev eral moru shots had to bo fired before tho orowd desisted.

He stopped within afoot of tho trap, but the hangman gently pushed him forward and Parslow atepped Into tho right position. 1 hen the two were ploced back to back, with a screen mndo of a blanket on n frame separating thorn. Father Collin, who followed Parslow. joined (lie other two priests In the prnvora for tho repes of tho souls of the two. Tho hangman lirepared the man first.

It Is the custom to cover up the lower portion of tho sonffold. so that tho bodies are hidden from view except to tho Sheriff nnd doctors, whoso duty calls them to bo present.
